    Do you think end of calender year 2019? Or after bowl season in early 2020?

    I ask because my brother and I have been discussing this whole thing over the past few days. He is concerned that WT will be let go soon. I am of the opinion that unless another lawsuit surfaces, half-ass-u likely will not let him go. YET.... too much invested so far with (as blackbird68 suggested) at least the first incident being known by fsu before WT was hired. Question mark there - as partdopy says - is if “lying” factors in. HOWEVER, if nolies lose recruits AND the team gets even Scheiss-ier AND they let willie go, THEN it will take some time to find a GOOD coach who will THEN have to overcome that reputation. IMHO.

    This could be bad if the SWAC sorts out that it might be cause for terminating without paying the buyout. I can hear a team of lawyers researching presently.

    If they miss out on another bowl game for this upcoming 2019 season things will get apocalyptic there, and I think they pull the trigger after we beat them down Thanksgiving weekend. These days in both college and professional football, coaches are getting yanked quickly, especially when season ticket holders and rich boosters are sending the AD angry emails threatening to not renew season tickets or donate if changes aren't made. Willie already made one change by relinquishing play calling, then made another change by hiring a coveted offensive coordinator. The next big change will be a pink slip on his office door.

    He tapped out when he saw the writing on the wall early on in the season. He made a post about it in either recruiting or too hot. He had no problem sticking around and often during their better years

    I am inclined to agree with your timeline and rationale, o&b_coop. Had all of this surfaced earlier in the season and THEN half-ass-u had such a dreadful W-L record, maybe fsu would have done something in this off-season. As it is, stuff is likely still unfolding and, thus, probably no change for ~ 12 months at least. THAT will set the table for a rocky 2019 nolie season (we hope!) and THEN much turmoil and uncertainty for many months (years?! ) after that.

    A prominent FSU (nka "Golden Griefs") supporter told me the tribe is restless and believes if they keep WT, it could be the beginning of their demise.... He was unsure if he was going to re-new his tickets?.?. Although drunk in our conversation, he was very depressed about their current situation during which I was able to tout our current coach and Gator success.....very fun conversation.....

    Maybe they get him on leaving Francois out there even though he was going to get killed? Did not max protect (9 guys blocking, one man running a route) when it was proven time and again the O-line wasn't major college worthy.

    It is weak but maybe it has merit with creativity. Otherwise can they afford a buyout? Highly unlikely. Feels like post-Shannon Miami.

    Am surprised The Semis allowed this S&C coach to be hired. Anyone remember the death of the Semi player during post season conditioning drills in about 2001? Devaughn Darling died. Had a twin bro who was also a Semi. FSU wrote a big check..... read all about it below.

    Wouldn't it be crazy if Urban took that job? I mean we never thought we'd have to play a divisional game vs the HBC either

    Don’t pile on Willie....don’t want Nolies to have cause to fire him and let them off the hook for his buyout.

    If his only goal is to go lower still in the eyes of a fanbase who should otherwise be grateful for two national championships, then he should do this.

    Urbana loyalty lies with Urban. Wouldn’t surprise me a bit.
