    Him and Spurs were probably having a few beers at their beach house and just needed a big ole laugh. I bet Stoops looked at Spurrier and said "watch this".

    I think this is closest to the truth. FSU was trying to generate interest and make it sound like a choice job. Now they have to save face while they go for number 4 or 5 on the list—who will probably turn them down.

    News has it from reliable sources, who heard it from a friend, who heard it from another friend that Nick Saban has turned down the sow coaching vacancy. News at 11.

    In related news, sources have it that the Dems are blaming Trump for Bob not taking the fsu job. They claim it's an impeachable offense.

    I have used The System to obtain actual footage of FSU's pursuit of Bob Stoops.

    Hey, he was a Clemson coach. And, he has the right name.

    Yeah, but were they also within a gnat's ass of going on academic probation? Did they have a reputation for corruption, rapes, violence against women, and police coverups? And were they down to three quality players (Akers, Terry, and the injured guy), all of whom would be leaving after the season? And was the university essentially broke after the second-biggest buyout of a coach in history? Oklahoma bad (especially in the days before buyout mania) is nowhere near the depths of Florida State bad. I would have to say that Stoops had plenty of talent on the team when he took over, because he won the MNC in his second season.

    After the $116M stadium facade with the fake classrooms in 2005, I doubt any Nolie in the legislature from anywhere outside of Tallahassee could keep their jobs after even suggesting such a thing.

    It helped him take a shower to wash the stink of F$U off of him?

    I doubt that any legislator in the State would have a thing to do with this....not if they want to have a chance at getting reelected.....
    That's a "poison pill" if I ever saw one!......

    Not to worry, however....
    It seems that the same boosters that paid Willie's buyout have also donated $125 Million for new facilities, and......

    According to "Dot Com"...

    They are in contact with "De Plane".... those "boosters" have already wired $42 Million to Thrasher, who is ready to bring back Chip Kelly andMario Cristobal...The plane is also reportedly laying over at Baton Rouge, to pick up Orgeron as well...(along with 45 tutors)... Dorothy says that this is a "done deal"

    Funny you use "The System." I use "the Methodology."

    Reports are that the Seminoles wanted a coach from Alabama. They signed former Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Sessions cashed the signing bonus and immediately recused himself.

    They then went to Stoops, who laughed non-stop for a full week. When he finally stopped laughing, he said "no," and finally had solid food.

    Nah....
    That title will change as soon as the next "news" breaks.. :D
     
  18. They will wind up settling for haggins when all is said and done.

    It will develop that there were really only 3 viable choices to sustain the culture wanted in that dump out west: Franklin, neon deion, and haggins. Franklin wouldn't come down so low, sanders is a bad joke and haggins is there.

    That whole town and athletic program is beyond hope.

    When F$U is still looking for a coach next March, this will be fun.
