Butch did a lot of good at Tennessee and really improved the talent, but he's just not able to take that next step, and sucks in SEC play. Part of that is the inability to develop a QB.
If they make a move, I'd back a truckload of money up to West Lafeyette and do whatever I could to get Jeff Brohm
One thing to keep an eye on: If Tom Jurich is officially fired as AD here at Louisville (that's not a for sure thing yet), Bobby Petrino's buyout gets cut in half. I don't know that he's particularly beholden to Louisville as he is to Jurich. He'll want to stay close though, so I could see him leaving for Knoxville. We would then go get Brohm to coach here at his alma mater. There's already rumblings here in Bobby's second tenure. He's 1-8 against ranked teams.
I'll tell you who really impressed me for Syracuse tonight, besides #8 Ishmael, is their quarterback. Not afraid to throw the ball outside the hashes or into traffic in the middle of the field.
What a hell of an upset.
If you're wondering what's going on with Louisville, here's your answer:
This was my concern all along about rehiring Bobby Petrino. He's never recruited players, especially defensive players, at a super high level. He missed on a lot of guys while at Arkansas and he's missing on guys here to U of L. This last class had a grand total of 1 defensive lineman in it. One. Uno. And that DE was a 2 star. Then you add to that the fact that he's doesn't want much to do with the defense and you've got a recipe for a disaster. The guys he is getting here aren't panning out. Well, Keith explains it best in the article above. But boy, Bobby sure can recruit him some WRs and QBs though.
Offense is for show, defense is for dough.
What's the word on his tenure? Is your AD out? Does that cut his buyout in half and if it does, do you think he'll get fired?
The AD's fate won't be decided until Wednesday, I think. The board fired Rick Pitino yesterday.
I can tell you that fans are NOT happy with Bobby. Bobby 2.0 as he's called around here just isn't getting it done. His best coaching job was his first season back. The only notable wins he has are FSU last season and Texas A&M in the Music City Bowl a couple of years ago. He's 1-9 against top 25 competition since he's been back and he lost to UK at home last season (unacceptable). If Jurich is let go as AD, his buyout gets cut in half and I think Bobby finds a new job. U of L doesn't want to pay that then $4.5 mil buyout so I don't think they'll fire him, just let him walk to Tennessee or some other school.
The prodigal son Jeff Brohm doing well makes it tempting no?
Congrats brother, y'all outplayed us again.
Yep, it's a rough realization but it's the truth.
Really good first half in FIU/FAU.
I am so impressed with what Butch Davis has done at FIU right now. Just focusing on solid, fundamental football has turned them around very quickly.
Duke fans love David Cutcliffe. Bowl eligible for the 5th time in 6 years and is all but guaranteed to retire there. Rumors are that he told Tennessee thanks, but no thanks on their opening.
Obviously Duke isn't a better job than Tennessee, but just a better fit for Cutcliffe in this stage of his life.
I personally have a ton of respect for him.
Cutcliffe is just a damn good coach. If he wanted to coach at a more prominent football school, he most certainly could. You hit the nail on the head that Duke is just a great fit for him and he is beloved there.
So Herm Edwards is getting interviewed for the Arizona State HC gig
Joe Moorehead (PSU OC) reportedly accepted the Mississippi State job. Huge loss for the Nittany Lions
Cutcliffe, Brohm and now Dave Doeren have turned down Tennessee. Schiano was a solid choice and the govt officials and fans that scared the school away are reaping what they sow. They’re now interviewing Chad Morris and Kevin Steele, neither of which are at all impressive. They’d be better off removing the interim tag from Brady Hoke then going with either of those 2
Currie was just fired by the way. Hired on April 1 of this year.
I read this earlier and haven't stopped laughing. They're gonna let Fulmer come in and **** things up all over again? This time as the AD? So much yes.
Philip Fulmer was my introduction into internet memes ... him riding a donut saying something ridiculous. I welcome him back into the SEC east with open arms.
Old boys' network in full effect. It's why I can't help but laugh at the events there, in Tennessee, and in Arizona.
I laughed at Tennessee hiring Fulmer because I hate them. And the Leach news ... that's gold, Jerry!
My reaction to Herm being signed was more of genuine confusion. Why does ASU hate their football team so much?
AD Ray Anderson is trying to save his job, so went with the desperation flashy move by hiring a coach he once represented as an agent. The only ones happy with the move are the super homers who would be giddy even if they hired Jerry Sandusky (hey Tennessee, that might be the way to get back into the good graces of the Old Football Coaches' Network!).
Jimbo Fisher to the Aggies
The Vols situation is hilariously inept and I don't think they realize how awful they look. Funny enough, the one who pushed them to even look at Greg Schiano was Jimmy Haslem. Supposedly since then Peyton Manning has been helping Fulmer sabotage Currie (Currie also had a deal agreed to with Jeff Brohm, then the Chancellor said he didn't agree with the contract offer, and when he presented a new one to Brohm, Jeff rightly said sod off).
At this point the only hire they'll be able to make is Tee Martin.
Herm edwards .... what a bloody bizarre hire. That isnt going to end well is it?
His press conference was just weird
Fulmer and Tennessee have pulled off a major coup if they complete the hire of Jeremy Pruitt. I'd take him over anyone they have looked at and probably over most of the coaches hired this season as well. I think he is the best up and coming defensive mind in the NCAA.
Everybody hates Alabama...until they need a coach...
He coached with us as well, him leaving really hurt us as Kelly should never have been given DC duties. I think a lot of Nole faithful had him as a potential target to replace Fisher.
I personally think he's better than Kirby Smart, who is damn good. We'll see how that translates to head coach but I love the guy. He was better than Stoops at FSU and Stoops was damn good.
Him leaving was the beginning of the end for Fisher. He never won again like he did with Pruitt and Stoops.
Pruitt is a Bama boy tho...Maybe he does well and when Nick retires,he gets a call from Bama if Dabo doesn't come.
You guys remember the first time you heard about Jeremy when he was the DC at Hoover when MTV had that show about them?
Good for him and good for us that he probably will not be recruiting hard in S. Fla.
Cristobal deserves it. Took over a program so bad in FIU that when he was first named head coach they didn't have a film room to study, and he got fired because the AD got all mad he interviewed for the Pitt job. As others have mentioned he is (arguably) the best recruiter in college football, keeps Oregon mvoing in the direction of a physical team that they need, and it allows continuity.
I've heard rumors he's gonna try in get Tosh Lupoi from Bama to come up and MAYBE be DC.
Doubtful...Tosh will probably be the next DC at Bama....plus he makes more as a linebackers coach at Bama than what he would make with the Ducks as DC.
"FAU got three touchdowns on fourth-down tries, unsuccessfully tried an onside kick in the first quarter, went for a 2-point conversion in the third quarter to make it 36-3 and even tried a halfback pass in the fourth quarter with a 47-point lead."
Good for Lane Kiffin..... took a chance by going to FAU and it is really paying off
You can't say Lane Kiffen without thinking of this...
