    No clue. But WV Gov are always meddling in our coaching hires, but not sure why they'd want Doc out

    I used to root against Bama because it's not fun seeing one program dominate every year, but I just kind of respect them now and don't care either way.

    I'll be annoyed if Gase goes to Bama and turns coaching all that talent into a major CFB gig for big money, though. That guy has already had at least one second chance he didn't deserve, and CFB needs to start giving new guys opportunities.

    I laughed at this and still don’t think highly of gase but he was a student assistant at Michigan state under saban and a grad assistant under him at LSU. The hire at least makes a bit more sense in that context.

    trusting him to develop Bryce young though seems like a poor choice but who am I to question god himself.

    Saban won national titles with people who were complete flops in other OC or HC jobs with McElwain, Nussmeier and Kiffin. Is Gase worse than any of those guys? Especially with Saban actually embracing offense now compared to when those guys were around?

    i don’t really think lane is as bad as the other two

    if nothing else, he’s a great offensive coordinator

    thats true but at least for nussmeier and mcelwain, those bama teams were built on defense. Bama has a solid defense but the current iteration of bama is offense first and the offense needs to be built around a mobile QB. Gase definitely isn’t as bad as nussmeier though.

    Campbell and Fickell both make a ton of sense for Michigan, though I have zero clue if either guy would take the job.

    I'd have to imagine Florida should have their pick of coaches and is attractive enough to be able to poach from P5 schools, even though they are spending top dollar on coaches these days.

    In the scenario where Harbaugh leaves, I don't see any way Fickell would have interest in UM, and I hope UM doesn't have interest in him.

    Campbell would be the clear favorite, almost by default, because he's the easiest guy to sell at the press conference.

    Just because of the OSU connection, or is there something else?

    Fickell or Campbell would have to insist that UM make more online classes available to athletes. Only way to even the playing field iyam

    Fickell is from Columbus, played at OSU, and then coached there from 02-16. I just can't imagine him wanting the job.

    I don't want Fickell because of all the things I just mentioned and just don't want to cheer for him as the coach of my team.

    The timeline isn't ideal but regardless I'm not even sure who we'd target from a P5 school outside of Kiffin or maybe like PJ Fleck. Outside the P5 you'd probably make a run at Napier or Fickell. Obviously there's Campbell but I'm not sure he'd even want to deal with the SEC.

    Just posted that in another thread. Great hire from a football standpoint. Bad hire from a "he was told of a player beating the shit of a woman and did nothing" standpoint

    Clemson's OL doesn't seem to produce many dudes with NFL hype. Seems like Dabo should move on from Robbie Caldwell. Although he's such a country bumpkin he is probably a huge favorite of Dabo's

    Lebby did most of it, supposedly.

    He's an excellent OC, either way.
