    A Nole in my office is still CONVINCED that B. Stoops is their next coach. Can’t make this up!

    I find it odd they are using a search firm. Have we ever used one?

    I tend to think needing a search firm is athletic director malpractice if you are the A.D. at a big time football school. That is THE revenue source for your athletic program. Any coach could up and leave any year for a variety of reasons -- health, burnout, a better job, you name it. One of an A.D.'s primary jobs at a big time football or basketball school is to always have a list and be prepared and know exactly who is a likely target and why and also know who to go talk to to ensure you are exploring all the latest options.

    Outsourcing to a search firm seems downright lazy for that type of position. A college football head coaching search is not like hiring a search firm to find a CEO of a corporation where there are literally thousands of candidates. There is a much more limited pool of applicants when trying to find a head football coach and you know exactly where to look (other colleges and in some instances NFL assistants).

    *****************11:00 PM UPDATE*************

    The FSWho podium has been chopped up to use for kiindling at Thrasher's fireplace, so now, potential recruits will only be able to help paint the other halfs of the end zones......

    Josh Newberg says; " It's BADA-Boom...not Botta-Boom"

    The coaching search is as dry as the podium kindling...but...
    Trusted Insiders insist that they'll see "the Bob" any month now....and they continue to tweet to that effect...but...
    "the Bob" is actually only the old remains of Bob Newhart....
    Golden Chiefs say, that the ink is drying on a 5 year, $75 Million dollar "done deal" for Newhart.

    There's a faint rumbling.....some say that it's merely the anticipation of an oncoming "page 136 melee"....Although, the jury's out as to whether it will be sadly anticlimatic.....or not....

    "Air Farce One" repoorts absolutely NO coachinng movements whatsoever.....

    More news at 7

    Using a third party is also something that you do when you have no idea what you're doing and you are about to make a disastrous decision that makes fans very angry.

    Yea, but to me virtually every hire has a risk, except maybe Urban, even Franklin and Stoops. I recall most thought Kelly and Frost were slam dunk winners. They don't look like it now.

    By now....
    If the Nolies try to pick up the Head Coach from St. Mary's Girl's School for the Blind.....
    Josh Newberg would cream his jorts, and the "Trusted Insiders would be the ones leading the cheer; "We're back, baby, we're back!".....

    But, sadly, Sister Mary Elephant also gave FSWho a big, fat, Christmas "HELL, NO!!"
