Yeah. I don't know what it was like in person but on TV you could barely hear the backup music and so it just seemed like a capella rap.

Would I "accept" it? Sure, if that's what JH wanted. But why would Chip Kelley go to M to be an offensive coordinator when he could be head coach at a place like USC?

Thanks, Seth. I am trying to get a Four Plays out and this is a big help. May your turkey have extra dark meat today.

Thanks, though I actually just used the first one that came up on a Google search. I'm kind of partial to the 1st and 5th editions myself.

Nice detective work, alum. With Johnson and Weaver, this would be a hell of a DL haul,if it comes to pass.

Wow. Good for the Gamecocks.

This is a feelingsball answer, but Mullen doesn't seem like the kind of guy who could thrive in an environment like Southern California. He's got that unsophisticated, aw shucks affect. Pumpkin & Honey Bunny would have shot him first.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Maryland v Mississippi State||
I think you've made about as good a case as there is. But to me, the question is not just whether Maryland is a better job than Mississippi State, but (i) whether Maryland is better by enough of a margin to make the transition worthwhile, and (ii) whether even better opportunities (than Maryland) are likely to be available to Mullen this off-season.
You've persuaded me that Maryland is better than Mississippi State. But the margin appears pretty small. Either way, you are in a bitch of a division facing opponents with better players, top coaches, and greater resources to recruit and develop players. If I'm Mullen, I'd probably rather stay at the winning program I have developed than undertake a turnaround job at Maryland.
More significantly, this is a coaching change cycle with tons of openings and not a ton of great candidates. Somebody is going to win the Tom Herman sweepstakes, and then Fuente and Babers look like the next guys off the board. Beyond that, good luck. So, I have to imagine there will be openings at schools with more to offer than Maryland that would have interest in a guy like Mullen.

I agree the ACC jobs are more attractive. If Mullen really wants a B1G job, Illinois is probably better than Maryland. In the SEC, I don't think LSU or UGA would be interested but Missouri is interesting, maybe South Carolina. But then you have all the jobs that likely come open once the NFL and top college programs start poaching guys.
|2 days 34 min ago||Maryland||
This would not be a smart move for Mullen, IMO. There are plenty of jobs available, and he is likely to be a good candidate for some of them. Why go somewhere you have a very low percentage chance of winning?
The timing (five days before the Egg Bowl) suggests to me that Mullen may be using this to leverage an extension or pay raise from Mississippi State, rather than serious interest.
|2 days 45 min ago||SEC divisions||
it wasn't that long ago when the SEC East was stacked (with outstanding Florida, Georgia, and Tennessee programs, along with a decent South Carolina) and the West was weak. LSU was okay, but never great until Saban arrived. Alabama was up & down from the end of the Stallings era to the arrival of Saban. Auburn and Arkansas would put excellent teams together here and there but were very inconsistent. Texas A&M was in the Big XII. Ole Miss sucked.
I think this year's coaching carousel will go a long way to showing whether the West is likely to remain the dominant half, of if the East will catch up. If UGA, Missouri, and South Carolina make big hires while LSU fucks up, that could swing the long-term balance. The West could also lose a guy like Dan Mullen to a higher-profile gig somewhere else.

Greg Jackson has Louisiana ties though. So it it's a matter of having a guy on the staff with ties to the area, that should be a wash (or at least close to a wash; I do acknowledge that Fred Jackson was a highly-regarded recruiter).
|2 days 6 hours ago||Personally I thought it was a||
Personally I thought it was a homer article with a lot of questionable assertions--none worse than the "who wins?" question. Meyer and Harbaugh are both going to get the recruits they need to build strong programs. If OSU gets more from Ohio and M gets them from elsewhere, is that a "win" for OSU? No, unless you accept the asinine implied premise that Ohio players are somehow qualitatively superior to other players. If M gets more players from Ohio, does that cut into OSU's recruiting base? Perhaps--but Meyer would have no trouble getting prospects from outside Ohio to make up for whatever he lost. So, declaring a "winner" over something like this is useless.

I think he is saying that a many Ohio players consider OSU their dream school and Michigan really has no chance if OSU wants them, so it's can be a waste of time to pursue those players, rather than focus your resources on other prospects elsewhere with whom you have a better chance.

So, some years ago at a karaoke bar in Chicago, a friend of mine gets up to sing "Eye of the Tiger." Little did he know that the words on the screen were some god-awful Japanese translation. So the song starts, and the words come up: "Liesin' up, back on the street. Took my time, took my tenset." For some reason your post reminded me of that.

IU is a bit of a different animal, with Sudfeld (accurate, veteran QB but not much of a runner) vs. Barrett (outstanding runner, okay passer). If you bring guys forward to stop Howard, you leave yourself vulnerable to having Sudfeld carve you up. Still, OSU should have made more of an effort to throw the ball. The one deep shot they took was wide open, Barrett just missed the receiver.

They are only middle of the pack because they choke every year. Georgia recruits as well as anybody and Athens is a great college town--not a bullshit antebellum backwater like most SEC locations. Any good coach would have to like his chances there.

The Georgia situation is the one I am most interested in, just because of Nauta, Hardman, et al. I think the best case scenario is that Georgia keeps Richt, but in a way that makes it perfectly clear that the only reason they kept him is because better options weren't available. For instance, there could be some UGa official caught negotiating with some other coach--and then the other coach gets a huge pay raise at his current school the next day and stays put. If Georgia fires Richt and makes a good hire, a gloomy and uncertain situation turns into a new and exciting one.
