Hopefully it is for the right reasons. It's almost always a mistake to delay serving the lord as best you can. Steve Young came to our congregation urging another athlete to go and even said he wished he had gone on his mission. Wouldn't trade mine for 10years in the NFL.

I think we need to stop worrying about Penn State. Afteralll, according to Buckshots, Minnesota is undefeated. So that would be the real threat.

"He also engaged in personal activities on work property" that applies for like... hourly pay not salary or professional gigs. Once you graduate from hourly to salary your personal life and work cross all of the time because there is no more distinction of who owns what time.

That is like saying someone on salary can't take work home with them.

your not thinking of it from UFM's perspective. Who cares about the media market.

1. he has to travel less to recruit

2. the recruiting pitch is easier since it is closer to home and not freeing cold

3. With the change in paying players the players will make way more cash barring any unforseen changes

4. its not his dream school like OSU, so if he loses to his rival he doesn't destroy the perfect record he cares the most about

5. Its a private school so no FOIA

Comment 03 Nov 2019

@dstac, agreed. I don't think he will come back to the b1g. I can reall yonly see him back in college for tennessee or USC. Ten now isn't great. but with a coach like UFM it could be pretty incredible.

Comment 03 Nov 2019

ahh you are right it was a different AD. My bad. I assumed since it was so recent.

Comment 03 Nov 2019

I think trying to maintain perfection at the school you love the most is stressful. I think having no ties to USC actually helps him. As far as him being AD... working a desk dealing with bureaucracies for an admin that didn't have his back sounds more like punishment than a good gig for him.

Comment 03 Nov 2019

that 247 report is literally based on a report which is based on a report which is based on an opinion piece and also contradicts everything else from "sources". Not a coincidence sources all say UFM and then they hire an AD from Ohio that he knows.

Comment 03 Nov 2019

Agree with all of the comments on tennessee's misteps obv the coaching hire decisions have been bad dating back to kicking out fulmer and cursing the program. That being said they have largest stadium I think and insane resources... no other explanation for their recruiting prowess relative to their on-field sucsess. So all things being equal, if saban were at alabama and ten I think Ten would be the bigger deal.

In any case, a moot point since I forgot LSU which I would slot probably a tie for 5th.

Comment 03 Nov 2019

Their AD's ridiculous comments about not wanting meyer are already coming back to to haunt him. He's already on thin ice for the taggart hire and buyout, now if the boosters want meyer (who wouldn't since he obv is better and knows florida) the AD has to go too to get meyer to agree I'm sure. Not that he would, but you don't buyout taggart for almost 20 mil to bring in another "great coach".

Comment 03 Nov 2019

I also think FSU is a step down from PSU, but I also don't think Mike Bohn was hired to get anyone but UFM. Anyone besides UFM and the fan base will hate Bohn from day 1 and he'll basically be a dead man walking. Also USC wants NCs no guarantee JF can provide that.

Also, I think FSU would have at least had a low-outside-shot at UFM if it wasn't for their AD's stupid comments which have already come back to bite him... now if his boosters want UFM, the AD will need to be fired, not smart since you are already the one who hired Taggart.

Comment 03 Nov 2019

I would say its 80% likely. Because:

He probably picked Bohn to be his AD, Bohn has tweeted good things about meyer, and meyer is probably a UC booster (he went there, his sister works there, his son plays there, the fick connection, etc. etc.)

UFM liked a tweet about him taking over at USC and coaching Matt Fink

UFM's last break was only about a year

UFM coaching is stressfull, but at USC it would be much less so for a myriad of reasons

Several people have already reported that they have been in talks for a long time

UFM hasn't ruled out a return to coaching and has indicated the opposite from time to time

Comment 03 Nov 2019

I agree with 5th down... I don't think Luke has enough of a track record yet for us to say he is better than dantonio. Dantonio plays a really really tough schedule and is usually in the conference top 3. Hard to say the Fick could do that. He could... but I think he might need some more time.

Comment 03 Nov 2019

Cristobal had a good game yest, but it is still way too early I think to count him as elite and worth a OSU/USC/UT kind of job. He is 44-53 overall as a HC. Chris Peterson made sense I think when they offered him the job back in the day. He seems to have lost his touch a bit though.

Comment 03 Nov 2019

I think Fleck is the opposite of what they want. They already tried the young cool coach thing twice with Sark and Kiff and got burned. I think they will only settle for UFM or Carroll and I think Carroll is less likely. Given how much extra money the university makes when it does good in football, I think they will just offer meyer whatever he wants up to 20mil. 20mil is still beans compared to what they make when things are going well. even outside of football rev, academic applications, donations, etc. all skyrocket when a team is championship contender. I think Meyer picked Bohn and now he is going to pick his assistants' pay at any cost etc.

Remember anything less than Urban and everyone will hate the new AD.
