    So confused. Is Stoops a Co-head coach? I heard it was a done deal!

  4. Whatever Norvell does, I hope he continues the excellent job that Taggart did at running the FSU program into the ground.

    I’m not kidding. The ACC is a joke. They still out talent every team on their schedule except Clemson, us and maybe Miami. But Miami is just as big a mess and they are still stuck with Manny. A good coach wins 10 games.

    It's a bad place to be. If you're a disciplinarian, which is needed, you're going to run off half the guys, and make the rest unhappy. If you're not, more of the same mess. Remember when Al Golden tried to clean up Miami?

    Norvell and Memphis dialing up some lethal simplicity in the first half of the AACCG vs Cincy.
    Nolie fans must be stoked!

    So FSU issues a press release during Norvell's game to announce a presser tomorrow at noon.
    What a cheap shot at Memphis, their players and fans.

    In 2016, Mike Norvell's 8 wins came vs. teams that went a combined 41-57

    In 2017, his 10 wins came vs. teams that went 48-76

    In 2018, his 8 wins came vs. teams that went 30-66

    This year, his 11 wins came vs. teams that are combined 66-65.Mike Norvell has Memphis football back in AAC championship. Title would be a perfect ending | Giannotto

    He is 0-3 in bowl games. He is 0-4 versus UCF. Clearly an upgrade over Taggert but who would not be? Pretty unknown how this plays out but he is unproven and has no experience in a high profile job.

    Great! So now Norvell goes from being UCFs bitch every year to being UFs bitch every year!

    Definite upgrade over Taggart, but I just can't help but see a low ceiling for Norvell....

    He strikes me as a safe, meh hire... Not really high risk/high reward... or even an obvious hire... normally the obvious hires are the home runs...

    But who knows... it's another trip to the roulette table...

    I think, all things considered, it is a good hire. Things are better for us when we beat a good FSU team. Hope things go well, just not too well.

    I agree that a good coach could do it.....
    But, I'm talking about the hot mess of recruits bailing, Akers and others gone, and the total lack of any sort of culture or cohsivness that is pervasive in that locker room.
