CC: Why not Tom Bradley if JH says no?

Submitted by DesHow21 on January 4th, 2011 at 1:09 PM

He would be infinitely more palatable to the masses than Hoke. He's got great recruiting ties to a state that should be a prime location for us. He basically has HC experience at a MAJOR univ without actually having the title and is squeaky clean ( personal life) as far as I can tell. 

 

Please not Brady Hoke...pretty please?

Have there been some site functionality changes?  How come there has been a drastic increase of people replying to the first response rather than replying to the OP.    I'm using WestCBlue's comment as an example, his comment is directed to the OP but he replied to the first post.  

Please tell me that there are some browser glitches that are preventing people from formatting comments the way they want and this place isn't turning into Rivals/MLive where it is fucking impossible to follow a conversation because everyone wants to make sure their comment is read.

This Bradley thing is a ploy by those at PSU to finally push Paterno out. And the threat of him leaving, and you will soon see Paterno retire in short order, as Bradley is the heir and everyone knows it.  Bradley to M would normally be reasonable but won't happen due to the above, unless he is the fallback plan for Brandon and 2. that Paterno wins the power struggle to stay.

Let's fire a head coach with multiple BCS appearances so we can hire the defensive coordinator of a team that had the exact same record we did this year.

I really hope Dave Brandon doesn't have the internet in his office.

I think I will remember the "Why not Tom Bradley" post as the absolute low-point of this offseason head coach circus. 

We need to get ourselves some brown paper bags and breathe in and out.  In and out...

This is an email someone on Scouts received from DB:

<br>Justin, as much as it seems to be difficult right now, I need you to trust me because everything is working out how we had planned. Dont always believe what you hear...

Or board game maker? Maybe one could coach the O? One coach the D?

Other Bradleys that should definitely be considered:

  • Omar: The military named a frickin' armorded vehicle after him. Enuf said.
  • Shawn: Would be the tallest coach in the universe. How cool would that be? Wouldn’t even have to jump to touch the banner.
  • Bill: Would bring a certain senatorial prestige to the job, plus a wicked set shot and thus would absolutely destroy the Vest in a game of HORSE.  (I’m sold on the idea already).

Sure, I'd love to have JH. But if no JH, I'm fine with RR. I'd actually prefer RR, believe it or not, but think that if JH turns us down, that will help at least 1 or 2 percent of those out there to calm down.
