Lets play them in a bowl

Not a bad idea, tbh.

Not a bad idea but I doubt they go for it. Certainly not if Sonny Dykes is available.

North Texas, though? I could definitely see that.

He’s got great tie ins to the North Texas area.

My TCU buddies are so mad. They fired GP with no legitimate coaches who want to come. They tried to beat Tech to the punch, and now are left with who? Prime?

I give them $hit saying they’ll just hire Jerry Kill.

As far as I know they still have Sonny Dykes on stand-by. If that’s not good enough for them I really don’t know what they were expecting.

I thought they wanted Dykes all along.

They may want Dykes, but Dykes may not go. SMU has money and who wants to come behind Patterson? The coach they hire is a short term 3 to 4 year guy then they’ll go after someone else.

Basically, they are about to pull a Texas where it’s a coaching carousel.

Dykes sure doesn’t sound to me like a guy who isn’t going to leave SMU. Not like he did when we made a run at him when he was at Louisiana Tech.

Yeah, I think Diaz is done.

Miami isn’t as good a job as people from Miami think it is, is the problem. So I don’t know who they get.

I don’t think we especially wanted Sumlin back, though, even when we weren’t good. My guess is that if Memphis wants a new coach they will want a new coach.

Herman , Fuente, Frost … could all have stayed in place and everyone would have been a lot better for it.


" MIKE HOUSTON, EAST CAROLINA: The Pirates’ head coach owns tremendous success in the Commonwealth from his run atop the James Madison program, and he’s continuing to make an impact at East Carolina."

Houston just one on a long list but what a gut kick to lose him now when they are finally getting rolling.

" Gary Patterson, ex-TCU coach: Patterson’s name popped up for this job as he left TCU. He was nowhere near done with coaching when he was shown the door."

Chris Peterson retired he didn’t get fired.
