Wow, that coaching search really went off the rails.  I mean, he’s a fine coach, but he was not even in the discussion until, well, right about now.

 

Looking forward to all the Auburn fans who have toed the SEC party line about Boise not actually being any good for he past, oh, 15 years now suddenly talk up how great Harsin is.

I'm a pro Boise Auburn fan, but I've actually watched them play some. It's a C+ hire that could turn into an A- hire. It's an Allen Greene hire, which is huge when you factor how much the BoT screwed this up. 

 

Kid is from Boise. Boise was his dream job, so he must think he can do big things at elite football. However, he just took the hardest job in college football. One that has to play and recruit against Bama/A&M/Georgia/LSU every single year. May the odds be in his favor and War Eagle!

Seriously weird coaching change related stuff going on about 20 minutes north of where I'm sitting.  No idea what they're thinking here, but I sincerely hope it turns into the burnt orange clusterfuck that it looks like at first glance.

I'm not sure why they waited until bowl season to fire Herman. They must have a massive hire to announce, otherwise they might end up looking dumber than Auburn did with their hiring process.

It gets better - reports are now that Sark turned them down

If that turns out to be true, and A&M beats NC tonight, I may stay pants less till we go back to the office in July

Sadly Sark ended up taking the gig (I’m assuming he held them up for more money)

Edit:  wrong thread.

Theres a lot to dissect about this Sark hire.  What I have a most vested interest in right now is who he takes with him from Alabama.  If he’s smart, he throws all the money at Jeff Banks, who led Bama’s absolute *raid* of elite Texas talent in recruiting this year.  If Sark gets him, that’s a big step toward getting Texas back on track.  Obviously, I hope Bama can keep him.

Ah, well.  If there's a positive in that, it's that my family doesn't have to look at me with no pants on for six months.

LSU TE Arik Gilbert tweeted that he was going to enter the transfer portal.

However, he has since deleted that tweet and his name hasn't shown up in the portal so who the fuck knows

BRB - wheezing

BoB has somehow translated "not having Penn State get the death penalty" into running an NFL franchise into the ground and now a cushy gig where he'll have zero consequences and eventually another HC job.  (I'm guessing at Michigan.)  

Also, Fuck Adam Gase.

I don’t know that I’ve ever initially liked a single Saban OC hire, and yet they all seem to work out just fine, so I’m just gonna chill out on this one.

If BoB ever ends up at Ann Arbor I'm out.

I think it's Saban trying to stunt and show he can win with literally anyone as his OC.

Probably shouldn't give Gase as OC much credit for Manning putting up the raw statistical greatest season ever, but he was also OC for Jay Cutler's best season by far. It's entirely possible he's one of those guys in the Wade Phillips mode where he's a good assistant but can't be the top guy.

BoB is the best coach in Texans history. He honestly wasn't bad at the coaching part. Not great, but not bad. The problem was giving him the GM job, where he was quite possibly the worst in the NFL at that.
