So how much longer can this go on?

DB said he would work quickly but carefully and everything seems to point to having this business wrapped up by midweek. But what if it's not? I know Tressel wasn't locked up until Jan. 17 however at some point not having an actual, you know, head coach is going to irreparably damage recruiting and thus the whole program for maybe more than just next season. So what is the true, hard-deck bottom line date to have a coach? As a card-carrying MGoLunatic I want this to be over before we all asplode.

My wife has started making fun of me because I cannot go by the computer without checking MGoBlog. 

 

She doesn't know I've also resorted to twitter updates :(

My brain has been so fried today from spending too much of the day going back and forth from tigerdroppings, MGoBlog, flightaware and realtime on google that I literally just spent 5 minutes watching this .gif just to see if anything different would happen.  DB needs to make a decision soon so I don't have an excuse to not have a life anymore.

Seems forever ,....the Miami, FL HC search took well over 10 days,... Muschamp to Florida,... a matter of hours basically,.... UF went after him with a vengance,...however their program is not the mess that ours appears to be in the recent past....

At the same time, I don't think any of the speculation going on has anything to do with what Brandon is actually doing.  Nobody knows a thing and the premium message boards are trying to drive traffic.  ESPN's INSIDERZ are apparently posting a list of coaching candidates Brian came up with as if it's exclusive news.  Rivals and Scout can't think of anyone besides Miles (wasn't offered last time it turns out) and Hoke (no reason to think Brandon would consider the guy based on his resume) so they keep putting up articles with pictures of those guys full of juicy info from their "sources".

No clue. My hope was Saturday before the AA game but that has come and gone. At this point I hope by Wednesday but even that is looking unlikely. Hell who knows anything really? I think the time it has taken is a complete fuck up by DB and at the same time it is so air tight that I have to hold out hope he may blow the doors off this place when he does announce who the coach is.

My gunt is telling me it is neither Hoke or Miles and the delay is him assembling a staff as the coach we are going after does not have one.

The sun is expected to turn into a red giant in another 3-4 billion years, where its outer surface will expand to the size of Mars' orbit, engulfing the four inner planets and extinguishing all life on the surface.  On the plus side, I just saved 15% on my car insurance by switching to Geico.

.. he'll wait until he is satisfied he's found the right man for the job.

Sure - it might hurt this recruiting class - but hiring a bad coach hurts the next 3 years in the minumum.
