    Why would one of the best coaches in the past 25 years of college football agree to any of that? The FSU job is a high-risk job right now. You have an impatient administration, low production on offense/defense, high number of loses, imbalanced recruiting class, 2+ years since you've recruited with no in-state ties, and they pick your assistants FOR YOU? The guy has earned the reputation to do things his way. That means he gets his own guys. This story is BS.

    Peterson is in Tampa. So he’s reporting what others have told him that B Stoops was in Clowntown. Okayyy.

    They are sourcing each other.
    She may be the originator of the rumor.
    If this goes bad, JP will be toast in local media.

    At least our “Done Deal” rumor for Stoops to replace Meyer had him bringing all of his own assistants.

    Come on FSU!!!

  9. Maybe he is just "consulting" on behalf of his brother. It makes sense to me that a weasel like the ky coach would use family connections to smokescreen for him.

    The guy publicly and egregiously turns us down at least TWICE, maybe 3x, then retires for 3 years and goes hat in hand to our biggest rival (which is an utter trainwreck) practically begging for a job he can't even hire his own staff for?

    Not Hardly.

    It doesn't really add up but the rumors seem to be very hot so that worries me. Briles and Stoops together at FSU is certainly not going to help us out. We already have issues recruiting this will make it substantially harder. We really need to make a few big moves this off season on the staff to get a better crop of players in going forward. I know it will get down voted...but everyone should know by now recruiting matters to much to ignore it.

    Hope this is not true. Boosters contributed huge sums to buy at WT, I would be curious to know if there has been behind the scenes work on a big deal to secure those funds..

    on Stoops, maybe he needs 8 mil/yearfor a couple years to pay the mortgage . YMMV

    The only way I will believe this is if Stoops does a presser to say he will not be the next coach at FSU

    If fsu wants to hire someone big, they'd better take out a second mortgage on the erector set.

    This hiring process is a 3-ring circus already!
