Obviously Duke should have raised their standards. Who knows how many National Titles they could have won in that 10 year stretch with the right head coach.
FWIW Woody went 6 seasons without winning the Big Ten and winning only 64% of his games, including a sub .500 year. He followed it up with a few Natties.
Hopefully Thad can turn the ship around.
Member when Mississippi State was #1 in the polls for like 2 weeks? Ah yeah I member.
What a model citizen.
James Caan already settled this debate in The Program.
"When was the last time 70,000 people showed up to watch a lab experiment?"
They usually do the actual clinic on the indoor practice field. Unless they changed it this year, I believe the Fawcett Center is just where they take your money and registration.
Great stuff. Kyle what sort of video editing software are you using for this?
So am I reading it wrong to think there are 3 types of scholarship offers according to Alabama? Non-committable, committable, and guaranteed scholarship.
I understand why he would be upset if they said he had a committable offer and then didn't have a scholarship for his player. Sounds like Bama is playing semantic games with people. It's like Mitch Hedberg used to say: "I don't have a girlfriend, but I know a girl who would be real mad if she heard me say that."
I don't get angry very much, but this really does it. This guy was convicted of rape and kidnapping and set free 6 years later. This guy should have already been in prison for life.
Seems like a stretch given the resume but resumes don't always tell the whole story. For a guy of that little experience to get a job like this maybe he just killed it in the interview and vetting process.
Urban never had coordinator experience before BG took a flier on him. Doesn't mean that I think Lynch is going to be the Urban Meyer of NFL GM's, I just don't think he's an automatic dud.
Would you take a player as annoying as Joakim Noah or Grayson Allen on this year's basketball team if it meant at least making the tourney?
And Iowa's head S&C coach who was in charge of that incident is now the highest paid S&C coach in the country.
I stopped watching when I realized that students play harder at the RPAC than student-athletes play at the Schott.
Plus if you wait until April to hire someone, all of the good coaches might be taken.
It's better to have to let someone go/demote in the event they don't pass the resolution, than to scramble to find someone if they do pass the resolution.
It's entirely plausible that Urban is just waiting for April to formally announce Wilson without giving Warinner the axe. He's a great OL coach, and there have been situations in college FB where two coaches share duties of a group. Like an Bama they had an interior OL coach and OT/TE coach.
I'm not saying he's definitely staying. Just saying it's more of a possibility than we're giving it credit for.
Stings sounds a lot like Christian Bale in American Psycho. Maybe he shouldn't carry around a baseball bat.
