    An easier path to an asswhoopin is all it is without the talent. I’d go to sec and do it with the talented roster.. you can’t be scared, you still have to play the big boys eventually.

    Yes. And although I don’t know the details, I will bet all my #teacherdough it was not $250M or even appreciably close.

    Now it COULD be a big pay raise.

    FTR, I’m not mad at the coach speak. While I always tell my own employer “well of course I’m ‘looking’ at other jobs” because I have no personal conflict in explaining why I believe that is the only rational way to live life, I understand why coaches, who are largely speaking to rabid fans, would lie about what is a rather obvious situation.

    Just saying that a coach affirming he’s not leaving—whatevs.

    Btw, if Scorch Strockland tapped TK...wouldn't most of us be disappointed?

    Seems to me we've seen TK's ceiling...and it doesn't include any nattys....AND hes just now, at 60 something, gonna get baptized in the scalding waters of the SEC?

    Yeah, good luck with that.

    Saban to LSU!

    What? We aren't playing a dumb LSU fan game? Seems like any name brand coach is the next on their wish list...

    But you're also a responsible GC professional with priorities..... so I recommend 5hour energy twice daily because you've got a busy next few days sir.

    The assistant hiring is gonna be just as intense. Gonna be a lot more assistant coaches making big money.

    Out of curiosity, where would you guys rank each of the hires so far?

    Riley- Southern Cal
    Kelly- LSU
    Napier- Florida

    Personally, I think it's kind of interesting because I think if Riley couldn't win a natty at Oklahoma, he probably won't be able to at USC either. Is USC a better job, maybe... but only marginally at best.

    Kelly I think found a higher ceiling job, but winning a national title doesn't seem to be enough to satisfy the LSU fans and administration. So who knows how this goes. I think Kelly isn't as sexy of a hire as Riley, but he may have a higher ceiling considering that he's coming from Notre Dame which is limited in their ability to win a title, at least much more so than Oklahoma.

    With respect to Napier, I definitely see the most boom and bust potential with this hire. If you like taking chances, you like this hire over the other two. If you're risk averse (like me) you're a little worried.

    Instead of salaries getting less insane, they are getting crazier. Honestly, for everything I’ve heard about Napier and for what we are paying him, I’m liking his hire even more.
