He was responsible for recruiting Mariota though also.  He found him and told Kelly to take him. 

And all Coordinators don't make good HCs.  Some are better as assistants. 

And good HCs aren't generally available for coordinator positions..

I've really enjoyed him on NFL Sundays now. The last 2 weeks he's had the Lions game which has been nice, too, and I think they had him down for something during the pregame last week.  It's fun to listen to him criticize paid professionals and their lack of tackling.

Just this past week, I read he'd probably be safe for another season. 

I think Mullen out of Miss St might be looking for a job this offseason, too. 

Problem is, I don't know if they are doing enough on offense to get Warinner or Beck job offers this offseason. I guess they could be "encouraged" to apply like Whithers, but they don't hold a golden ticket like Herman or Ash did the last couple seasons.

I'd hate to be NW this week...

Is that an optimistic statement? Maybe.  But I also look at what he's done here in the past, and aside from the back to back losses in 2013, the team has responded impressively.  I like to think the team we saw that blew into Norman is the rule, not the exception. Last year, that team needed a wake up call, and got it in a loss to Sparty. Hopefully, this team reacts the same way.

Good deal, and good for them. I feel like they've swung the roster way too far to the smaller, faster, skill players recently. I know it's a different era, but their best rosters had a mix of skill and toughness. The last few years, especially in the playoffs, the Wings star players get run at constantly with no repercussions for the opposition.  I'm not saying they need goons, but they've missed the Lapointe or Shanahan type players, the power forward type who could score but also drop them if they needed to. It's really shown in the playoffs over the last 4-5yrs. 

No one took runs at Stevie Y when you had guys like Probert and Kocur on the bench. Larkin will need some protection at some point.

At some point, having a true Freshman at QB will be a factor. I thought it was the Ole Miss game when they got up by 3 TDs, but then they Ole Missed (see what I did there?).  A team that can get up on them, and force Kiffin to throw w/o the threat of the run can take advantage of Hurts.  I don't think there are many teams that can do it, and not sure if A&M is one of those teams or not. Their QB obviously shouldn't be intimidated since he's beat them before, and that's important.  They've got some serious talent on the DL too, so if they can control the LOS, could be very interesting, because I also agree, their secondary is still very susceptible to long passes down the field, and A&M has serious talent at WR.

The win against NYR was big the other night. Those are the games they've been losing the last few years.  Missed the game last night.  Did Larkin hold his own?

Not to mention, Tennessee isn't that 49-10 is still impressive, but not a top 10 matchup....and this is coming from a fan of the team that just escaped with a 7pt OT victory in a top 10 matchup. 

I'll be interested to see how LSU plays Bama.  I know the transitive theory is useless, but with Wisky beating them, it will be interesting to see how Bama does.  I was fully in the corner heading into last week that Wisky beat 2 good teams that play right into their strength, but they hung with the Buckeyes, and I didn't think that would happen.
