Just heard Braine talk about O\'leary & ND situation and....

this was on 790 and I found it interesting. Braine was not offended at all and stated that he thinks that Big Bee's name being mentioned is good for the GT program.

For people that heard it I am interested in comments, but Braine appeared to be very MATTER OF FACT. It was almost weird. He stated that he(braine) had not been contacted by ND and he was good friends w/ Kevin White (ND's AD) so he expected.

Braine also stated that he thought Big Bee would stay, but then he knows Big Bee being irish catholic that this may be his dream job. Braine also stated that he had a list of candidates just in case.

Braine's final comments were he though O'leary would stay.


Now my speculation is I dont know? I would have never dreamed after the season we have had that someone would come after our coach, but I tell you Braine did a fantastic job when he hired PH and I believe maybe Braine wants to put his "stamp" on the fb program as well.

Our program is in great shape and GT would probably be in the best position it has ever been in to hire a quality fb coach.

I say all this b/c I see the posts and where there is a general consensus that O'leary is NOT the problem, however many people feel there is a problem.

I also believe the "right" coach may be the one to take us to the next level.

I hope Big Bee stays, but only if he wants to. If he wants the ND job I hope he gets it and I wish him the best.

I dropped my phone and guess what popped up as the top post on ST?

Ah, so much has changed, but so little is different. Can’t believe it’s been 20 years.

He took the thread out of its natural home in the annals of stingtalk history.

O’Leary leaving was bad for GT.
Dave Braine retiring was one of the best things that happened to the AD.

When this was posted I was in high school spending too much time thinking about cars, football, and girls. Now days I'm in my 30's and I spend too much time thinking about cars, football, and girls.
I was eleven, had not yet stepped on a football field, nor had I become a GT fan at that point.

Doesn't that just prove that fans don't know öööö and I guess ADs don't know much either. Not picking on Law_bee, but he had no idea what it meant or how it would play out.

Fans always either think it is the best of times or the worst of times and that trends never change.
