    If Dan Mullen could get us to #1 in the polls, damnit anyone can! Believing otherwise is being defeatist!

    Like every other SEC wannabe. They just haven't been the same since Paul "Big Dick" Johnson showed em how he got that nickname.

    Listening to ESPNU a little while ago (think someone subbing for Packer on Off-Campus), one of the talking heads said they should go after someone like Monken. Stated they’d always be at a talent disadvantage and may as well be different. :coffee2:

    That would apply to many schools (Minnesota and Baylor a few years ago or example) but there is a reason it doesn't happen.

    Y? Because $$$$$$. Look how much Malzahn is making at Auburn. And Kirby gets free haircut coupons at SportClips as part of his deal.

    Yes it’s called idiotic alumni. Lou Holtz said as much at Notre Dame.

    I enjoyed this article on coaches getting a faster hook in college football. It basically highlights that fan win-now expectations are somewhat unrealistic. It also specifically talks about the decline in attendance and the money at stake being driving factors in the decision making.

    Ted Roof next DC at Vanderbilt, per reports. Nate Woody is the new DC at Army.

    Are they on our schedule? If so, can I call our offensive plays on third downs and the entire 4th quarter?

    I don't know if Moorhead is a good head coach or not, but it's insane that he was only given two years. It's also a really bad look that they waited until after early signing day to make a move.

    That does not seem like a good path in terms of degree value to this point. Vandy would be a major step back up.

    How do you even qualify for a degree transferring schools ever year?

    How can you transfer that many times? You usually sit out a year when you transfer. Does "my daddy is moving" qualify as a hardship?

    It looks like he got a waiver to play immediately at Vandy. We probably helped with that. He sat out this season at App State. If he follows his Dad to Vandy, I would think he would have to sit again and lose a year of eligibility leaving him with one season left to play. Who knows where he is academically. That does not seem to be a priority. His brother was a QB at Charlotte in 2017. Doesn't seem to have played since.
