  1. I know he has settled down quite a bit in recent years, but maybe we will get lucky and he'll troll Saban.

  2. So explain to me how Norvell- a guy who had a considerably worse record at Memphis than GP did when we were in the MWC - is going to fix the issue and make us win more than we have so far in the B12?
  3. I didn’t say that he would. I don’t even know who the dude is other than watching a couple of games this year.
  4. The problem with that is there really wasn’t anyone saying they wanted to fire GP and hire those guys instead. Most all of the comments were simply that those guys might make decent HC’s someday.

  5. So explain why this year and last year weren’t also “all on him”?

  6. Did not saw it was not. But if there is a repeat for next year, the heat will be all on him. Folks won't be talking about assistants. They'll be talking about the guy making the decisions.

  7. Explain to me why he couldn’t. I feel pretty comfortable that he could at least find a way to win 5 or 6 games like we have 3 of the last 4 years. And no I’m not saying we should fire Gary.

  8. Mike Bobo reportedly headed to be OC at South Carolina. Bobo was pretty solid as Georgia's OC. Good hire by Coach Boom if true.
  9. Drinkwitz to Columbia.
  10. muschamp needs for this to turn out to be more than just a good hire
  11. interesting choice, never figured him to be an ivy league coach

  12. City. Not college. He is reported the hire for the Tigers. SEC East.
  13. other would have been a better career choice

  14. I thought the exact same thing but perhaps because I had just finished looking at the schedule of a Patriot League team our VB Frogs will face later this week.
  15. Is winning 5 or 6 games fixing the issue? I assume this is a passive aggressive inquiry instead of a serious question since no reasonable person would suggest that replacing the winningest coach in program history with a guy that achieves the same result that got the legend fired was the goal.

    But to answer you question more directly - 38 and 15 vs 77 and 13

    Norvell has more loses in 4 years than GMFP had in 7 seasons in the MWC.

    So why would anyone assume he is going to show up and do "better" than GP when he is worse now than GP was in very similar circumstances?
  16. One of the main reasons Norvell was hired... his buyout was 500k. Versus Campbell at ISU who had like 12 million buyout. The Platinum Chiefs wanted Campbell but they just paid 18 million to Taggart plus the 8 million to Oregon to hire Taggart originally, plus even money owed to USF by Oregon. Taggart was a disaster.
    Additionally the FSU athletics department is in shambles, they don’t even really have a long term AD. Stoops took one look and said no thx. Norvell better buckle up, it going to be rocky.
  17. Mizz set to hire Drinkwitz... Will be a good hire for them....
  18. So you don’t have any reasons why he couldn’t. Got it. Gary went 32-16 his first four years at TCU by the way.

    And just so we’re clear (I’ve already written it once)..... I’M NOT SUGGESTING THAT WE SHOULD HAVE REPLACED GP WITH NORVELL. I simply asked you a question (that you can’t answer).

  19. Pittman is a Hillbilly version of Brett B.
  20. Only past performance as opposed to [ deposit from a bull that looks like Art Briles ] guessing and hoping - which is what FSU is doing

    they are desperate and can’t pay over about 2 million because of past mistakes evidently

    and he was much like GP during CUSA - and no one wanted to hire GP then either....
