I have nothing meaningful to add to this thread -
Just doing my part to get this to page 136
How many posts before we get to page 136? I hear it’s eye popping...
But to actually add value, I don’t think Kelly was actually an on field coach. He was their recruiting coordinator but due to a Willlllllllllie administrative mistake, he had to be counted as an on-field coach this year. So they aren’t really changing their WR coach for our game.
Pretty close to 1420 more to go. (I know no one cares just doing my part to get us halfway there.)
My Brother in Law(Crazy FSU homer with some ties to big Nolie Boosters) kept telling me they didn't announce Stoops right off for these reasons:
State law mandates the job must be available for 5 Days,
They didn't want it to look like they planned on Stoops before Willie was canned,
Stoops had contract issues with XFL that needed to get worked out,
Stoops wanted to have say in next AD, with a shot at becoming AD when he retired,
They needed to have the search firm complete due diligence search because its a state job.
As recently as Sunday the story was Stoops had signed and the announcement was later that day, yesterday its was Stoops was in Tally and the presser was later in the day.
He won't even answer my texts now, I keep asking him if I missed the presser...
Sort of feel bad, but not much cause he was a real ##### the last few years and is a total homer. Went as far as to tell me Willie was the BEST hire of that cycle and he was gonna own Mullen...….
Bring on the popcorn!
I don’t know how in the wide world of sports you and Gray interpreted my post as a reference to ref$u being as good as Georgia. I was TRYING to say that if a vastly inferior team like USCe can stumble into Athens and beat mighty Georgia in their house, lowly ref$u could potentially do the same thing to us if our team goes in overconfident.
But this point has been beaten to death, and yes we should kick their sorry asses by 4 TDS or more. Go Gators.
Perhaps we should send some trolls tp warchant ….. drop some names, Hugh Freeze, Les Miles, Bobby Petrino ....
Just for Fun
No worries, I wasn't alone however.
USCe has a thing vs UGa, UGa was looking ahead and didn't prepare. Don't se UF doing that at home vs the semenholes.
Don't undersell Akers. Swift is probably better but Akers is VERY good.
Yep... it jumps right out at you.
Just tell him this... Stoops didn't take the fsu job because he doesn't like fsu. Which, is, btw, the truth.
Coach Spurrier told me that once back in the 90's when he came up for the annual Gather Gathering in Tally. OU boosters I know have told me the same thing.
And another thing... fsu officials never even met with Stoops' agent and lawyer, only talked with them on the phone, and never met Stoops personally during their entire "inking period". lol
SEC Network actually has 70 million subscribers ... Just left off some zeroes.
CBS is the only OTA network that airs SEC home games, which means every other SEC home game is going to be on cable.
ABC: ACC, American, Big 12, Big Ten, Pac-12
Fox: Big 12, Big Ten, Pac-12
NBC: Notre Dame
SEC home football games go through the same "draft" process every week. CBS took the Iron Bowl with the first choice, and nobody else gets to air a game with an SEC home team in that time slot (3:30pm). ESPN takes the next two picks (noon and 7pm or later), and has Clemson at SCAR and TAMU at LSU. Then SEC Network picks, and slotted us in at 7:30pm. I have no issues with any of those games being ahead of us, given how terrible FSU is. Even if it was an FSU home game, I doubt ABC would have taken our game over UGA/GT (noon) or Wisconsin/Minnesota (3:30). They'll probably have Oklahoma/OkSt as their primetime game.
Thanks. I never knew the underlying considerations or pecking order. I guess the rivalry was once compelling enough. I just do not recall the game not being on basic cable or espn.
in my best crying voice- Awe Willie, what have you gone and done?
OU vs Okie State is a 7 pm cst kickoff.
So now it seems the Bob Stoops to FSU is dead..... looks like we will get a few more weeks of "searching".
Now it turns to Matt Campbell...
Even money they get turned down and end up with Odell, then they try to save face and say that was the main plan all along....
I'm Chip Kelly and I approve of this thread
Good morning and welcome to the thread Mr Van Winkle.
