Possible Borges Replacement (Joke)

Submitted by MEZman on December 12th, 2013 at 4:19 PM

Dear MGoBretheren,


Since the end of the season we have been searching in vain for viable Al Borges replacements. Well fear not as I have found what I believe to be a worthy candidate. He applied for the head coach position at the University of North Dakota so he may consider UM's OC job beneath him but perhaps he'd be willing to take a lesser position if not offered the UND job.


You can also see his powerpoint presentation here:


Also, from reading the presentation he may be able to work with Mattison on his blitzing which should be seen as a positive by some members of our community.

What say you MGoBlog?


Note: This may get me sent to Bolivia but it was worth it.

2nd Note: After looking at his preferred playcalls I'm not so sure this isn't Borges applying to UND under a pseudonym.

"We will graduate our players, well not really because they’ll all be leaving early for the NFL"

This is good stuff. I saw something about this earlier today - I think he actually got a standard reply from UND's HR department on how to formally apply for the position too. Even if it was a form e-mail and this is not in earnest, it would be awesome to see this guy at least attempt to go through the process.

I mean, technically if they hired the guy he could possibly surround himself with super-aggressive coordinators who have the same vision. Recruiting might be a bit of an issue, though.

Is just to get the interview. You want to stand out from the other schmucks. I'd say the second part of that was mission accomplished. If he got the interview as well: bonus!

Kick on Fourth Down?  Why do I want to pay for the same real estate twice.  We are advancing constantly.  We're going to ram the balls down their throats.  By God, I pity our opponents, I really do....
