    Hate to start a thread on this.....but I recall someone posting a while back that Venables had issues as to why he hasn’t had a HC opportunity yet. Can someone remind an old guy with a bad memory?

    His name is Sean and he eats 3 meals a day, gets plenty of sleep, and doesn’t wear windbreakers so he’s nothing like his father.

    Brent has decided to stay at Clemson to coach his recently committed LB son. Besides, he will suck as a HC and no one should want to hire him away from Clemson.

    This may be unpopular but I don't think Venables will be a good head coach. Just doesn't have the temperament for it. Great DC though

    Are there any other successful D-1 coaches that are known as defensive minds?

    Seems like the offensive minds are the popular choice these days.

    Eh, they've never peaked out the way they did under Levitt. They had momentum going before he got the axe. Remember they were #2 in the country at one point under him

    They were #2 at one point but over his last 4 seasons they won 9, 9, 8, 8. They're currently 8-1.

    Right. But they're 8-1. There isn't any indication that Leavitt would be in the same position or better :idk:

    So are you saying you'd think they'd be 9-0 8 years later if he was still there or something? I don't think it's that big of a stretch to say if Leavitt doesn't get fired before 2010 theyre probably not better than 8-1 in 2017.

    II have no clue, I'm saying it's hard to compare records when they were playing in a BCS conference and now they are in the trash AAC. Who is USF's best win this year? They've beaten Stony Brook, SJSU, Illinois, Temple, ECU, Cincy, Tulane, and UConn, they lost to Houston at home. I don't think it's a stretch to say those Leavitt teams were as good or better than this years team. You were arguing that their peak is higher now and I am saying it's pretty hard to compare.
