    Is lane kiffin a better mentor than Jim? One has to wonder. Kiffin did light the fuse on the Charlie Weis Jr rocketship.

    Think his recruiting prowess is overstated. He was a good coach and produced good results but as Jimmy the Saint said, we are in a pretty good spot now to replace him and shouldn’t see much impact with the right hire. His presence in the locker room and program will be missed. Had a really cool personality. Hope he kills it in the NFL. The JF staff of D2 PSAC coaches moving up to high Major FBS and NFL jobs is cool to see.

    Yes, he was a big personality in the locker room a team leader, he was well respected in the recruiting and coaching world. He wasn’t perfect as some will point out he missed out on some top local talent on the recruiting trail. He’s also had some really good talent not live up to expectations. But that’s the world of football. It’s late in the process so it sucks because now to pluck a top hire is going to much harder as most staffs are locked in.

    Agree. PSU should go after Elijah Robinson from Texas A&M. Not sure they will pay him what he wants but he is a PSU boy. Also, found it interesting that James Franklin just followed Lemanski Hall on instagram or twitter. Can't remember which one. D ends coach from Clemson.

    PSU should bring in Larry Johnson Jr. he has the pedigree and he’s just enough crazy to make it work

    There's a not entirely zero chance UConn is an FCS or does not exist when that game rolls around.

    Burton is probably the most well thought of coach on the staff (not that it is saying something). But if there was a coach I would want to lose least it would be him.

    Yeah who knows, it is the supposed insider from Texas who is 50/50 right and wrong.

    But on the timing I guess one of his girls is pregnant and found it out pretty recently. That plus collecting a huge bonus is incentive to step away (not to mention the Blackwell stuff that just got dropped).

    I think most on this board didn't believe he had the energy and the passion to get the ship going in the right direction. He is old enough he doesn't want to make wholesale changes and he was pretty defeated all this year.

    I just don't buy that we have the leadership in place to make a great hire. But always will think highly of him. The past few years sucked but brought some highs that will be next to impossible to replicate.

    I'd imagine they'll name an interim and see if they have any short term interest and if not they'll just wait till next year

    Over three nights from 1/29, 1/30, and 1/31, the BTN had the highest rated college sports television audience each night across all networks.

    While that is qualified by “college” sports, that’s an impressive Wed-Friday during the end of January when ratings typically dictate advertising rates for the following year.

    It was Indiana-Penn State BB, Iowa-Maryland BB, then Iowa-Penn State wrestling.

    The wrestling broadcast was the highest rated wrestling broadcast in BTN history.
