And how much success has ttun had with NFL placement lately?
Happy for Fickell, still don't give a shit about UC and not going to change. Best of luck to him.
He's getting 1.4m at Alabama right now. Our best paid was getting like half that. I don't see a person taking a lateral move for equal or less money...
He's not giving up 800k(unless he's working for free now?) and it sucks to step away from a secure dream job to try and spread your wings to fly, but wtf else is one to do? He's been here a while now, I suspect he'd like to progress his career now.
Best of luck to him.
I'm with you. Photobomb, well done. Shirt, pretty funny. Career at ttun, check. I don't have any negativity towards him. He played the role of a young ttun leader with sportsmanship and his career never did anything to offset us. Best of luck to him and I hope playing for them didn't cost him too much of that brain of his.
Isn't hoke at Oregon?
Thought he had used up eligibility, that seems so long ago now.
I'd much rather stay with my current program where I have built everything with my footprint than make a move to UC which, simply isn't that good of a program right now. Yes others used it as a stepping stool, but people looking for a good hire aren't going to look past what his body of work was and think "Now if only he did a season or two at UC".
Also do remember that some people are happy where they are at, and if he doesn't see UC as a step up in difficulty/challenge other than having to start over for a program again, then there is no reason to make that move. So to him it may measure up to a lateral move. Not saying it is right, but I don't see this as arrogance myself. He knows what he wants, and he has a path he wants to take, good on him for being willing to take that risk. If it doesn't work out for him, then he is the one that has to pay and Western Michigan is the beneficiary of an extended stay from a coach that took 1-11 to 13-0 in 4 seasons.
I got a HS kid that works for me in the afternoons. He is an Oregon fan. Told him when I heard about Schiano being a possibility he should start hoping for that hire. It'd be a miraculous day when the PAC figured out what a good defensive unit can do.
His I was a fast one, but I don't know what threshold is against celebration in HS football.
What is limitation for inhomes?
They have merit, esp PSU IMO. But in the end their brand is heavily "[REDACTED BY MOD]". They enjoyed plenty of winning when the stuff happened, now their program is paying for that blind eye and I don't really care. Also don't think anyone really believe PSU is better than us. They were the benefactor of getting a bye into a night game at their place against us after we just fended off another tough as nails program with the SAME benefit. And they won on a relatively absurd play. Ultimately I don't care myself anymore, we did what we could. 11-1 with a good bowl is a much better expectation than was had preseason, a playoff shot is just a cherry on top to the post season and I wouldn't be that salty if we got left out(I doubt we will). TY brand, alumni, and profile.
MOD EDIT: Zero tolerance for jokes or hot takes about crimes committed at Penn State.
I don't see it as ironic... He posted his reason for turning away and provided two aptly available links as to back up his reasoning. I mean no one was questioning him, so he could have omitted... But I don't think citing sources for your actions is the same as making a post that is fueled/directed/driven by that content.
Sorry ECO, but I was smart enough to not ever turn that show on. Only sports show on ESPN I gave time to was The Herd(Reasonable IMO, others don't agree) and once I got into Dan Patrick Show I moved away from that even. If I could just entirely cut ESPN out of my bill, I'd happily do it.
Why would Lane go from OC at Bama to OC at LSU? A lateral movement for a harder task, that seems beyond stupid to me. People keep saying it, and people aren't that stupid, so what am I missing. (If the logic is that Lane was Orgeron's HC and that somehow makes Lane want to do a lateral movement to now work under his former underling against Saban... Seriously what am I missing that makes people think this is a thing?)
TBF this guy you replied to is by far the most thoughtless person I have seen on the forums. So much so I feel as if it is a troll...
Indeed. I feel Clemson is more suspect than people realize. I want that shot.
This seemed so ridiculous I checked it to be sure. Holy. Shit.
Yeah, and in this environment, mid 60s is going to start breaking down. These recruiting days have GOT to be insanely tough. I mean sure when you were THE program, probably a bit easier to just pick 'em up. But with tOSU planting in that soil, Clemson keeping a tough front, ttun is getting into the fight, Herman is taking over Texas, USC is picking up steam again. There is a lot of old school power coming online, which means its going to start becoming a real damn fight. That can't be easy in your 60s.
I find it amusing the focus on ref pointing the dude out. Honestly makes it feel like what he did is actually getting buried because someone CLEARLY fucking knows what occurred. But w/e, that trash is done and we're moving on. 2017 campaign of fuck michigan is underway. Before we give that any time, lets go win a title.
Maybe ttun should recruit that kid, better vision than Peppers it seems. I mean blindly walking into a perfect show of force against the "hit man" Peppers is pretty fucking stellar.
Honestly, why do we care? Even if he was, he was not a pillar of hope that stood above the rest and he won't be playoff ready. Even if we had the chance to use him, it'd be sort of foolish to add another variable into the unstable equation that is the passing game. Of course, I am still not sold on Gibson being any more valuable than Dontre Wilson has been. (Yes I know he's had some key plays here and there, he was just over hyped and doesn't really impress me at all.)
More satire I think.
