"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Your first pick?
Gruden, I know it's a risk but he could be a master recruiter...this is assuming no harbaugh.
I'm sorry, that answer is incorrect. We were looking for something original. Something original. You still have control of the board, please pick again.
I'll take future Michigan coaches for 200 alex.
I still clicked my downvote even though it doesn't go through. Out of principle. But I have added you to my list for the future.
What are the names of head coaches, ages 35 to 50, with successful coaching experience in the midwest? Are there that many? Who would they be?
(1) Papa Johns
(2) wait, what are we ranking?
I'd take any of these 3 happily, and Harbaugh is just a pipe dream. They all have very good benefits.
1. Tom Dungy
2. Bo Pelini
3.4. Any of the petersens
Distant 6. Hoke
I have nothing against Hoke but then the rotinue of 9 win season cannot be the reson why we fired RR...
And Rex Ryan's brother...but I've never heard of Tom Dungy...where's he coach?
Tom's brother Tony might be better.
Tom Dungy. How could I forget?
Do these guys also know Tom?
hahaha I remember that thread!
If you want to win, you gotta let him spin...
I wish I had the power to pos bang you right now.
excellent memory. Hilarious.
2. Pelini - if at first you don't succeed . . .
4. Cam Cameron
just saying. Not one real candidate on your entire list.
I wouldn't argue, but some might argue that Hoke and Miles are real candidates.
2) Anyone not named Miles or Hoke. (Malzahn, Petersen, Venables are some of the names I'd put in this area)
3) Ugh, Miles
How can you have Denard on your list and put him below Miles. If I were to include M players current, I would go:
2. Denard's dreads
3. Denard's smile
4. Denard's untied shoelaces
6. Barwis (still on staff)
7. Taylor Lewan's tattoo
Hope to avoid splitting his focus although Heisman-winning QB and head coach would be mighty impressive...
Steps to success.
1)Promote Barwis to HC
2)Find him some real live wolverines to complement his wolves as mascots
3. Throw 4 million a year at Gus Malzahn.
I think Malzahn is a name more people should be talking about.
that Malzahn would run into the same situation Rodriguez came into.
TCU played really well and I think the transition/coaching up of the current group would go more smoothly than other mentioned candidates.
After that, who knows?
1. Harbaugh (one or both)
5. Space Ghost
6. An unpaid parking ticket
7. Brady Hoke
We know he could recruit coast to coast...
I probably should have put him ahead of Miles. Wasn't thinking.
Out of the dorms...
Don't forget George Noory then...
But I'd put Charlie Strong, then Brady Hoke, then Miles, who noses out Space Ghost only because of the latter's reputed shoe fetish.
Seriously, I really think Miles would be a disastrous hire. And it's never going to happen. I think John Harbaugh is more realistic than Miles.
I don't consider Harbaugh, Gruden, Meyer, or Stoops reasonable.
98. LLoyd Carr
99. Brady Hoke.
Gus Malzahn. Why isn't he being talked up more? His system would best utilize the offensive personnel they have now. Just puttin' it out there....
2. John Harbaugh
4. Ditka - dude would be a great recruiter
I'd be semi-serious about Singletary, though. He failed at the pros for being too much of a college coach. He's not in the discussion here, but I could see Illinois going after him next year, after they fire Zook.
4.) Disappointment : (
2.) TCU's Coach
And if all else fails Vince Lombardi would be nice
Can you use first initials so we know which Patterson you're talking about?
