    New coaches thread

    What impact did Ferguson have on Mizzou’s football team?

    New OC thread

    2010 Cotton Bowl, where we scored a grand total of 7 points and lost to Ole Miss, comes to mind. That provided the impetus (i.e., pressure) for Gundy to bring in DH.

    Georgia felt they got shafted out of the CFP. Even Herbie was lobbying for their inclusion. They were hoping to make an emphatic statement that they belonged, at least according to their fans. Their coach also alluded to it.

    Big 12 Bowl games

    Cannot believe we lost to a team with an offense that anemic.

    Tyler Lacy

    Unless he’s put on 50 lbs., I doubt he’s moving to DT.

    ndsu sends us a replacement for coach snyder ...

    I'd take Klieman over Miles. Miles is a weird dude, and I still question his in-game coaching. I've never seen anyone get luckier despite bone-headed play calls, clock mis-management, and lack of situational awareness.

    ndsu sends us a replacement for coach snyder ...

    He’s been able to recruit (Carson Wentz) and win in Fargo. He’s 67-6 over the last five years. I think KSU hit a home run.

    Yep, and although we sucked out loud at times, we still managed to beat WVU—again.

    Grier Sitting Out WVU Bowl Game

    The point of bowl games is to make money and increase visibility for the sponsoring company/organization. That’s it, and that’s why there are so many of them. That’s why there is a Cheez-it bowl. And as long as they continue to make money from them, they will keep having them. Quite often...

    What bowl are we playing for?

    I'm sure Gundy will play Corn the entire game as a reward for his years of service. I've got a feeling we're going to get stomped.

    Kingsbury gone?

    I'm just saying that going with guys like Kiffin, Sark and Helton, so far, has not worked out for them. Helton may come through, especially now that he'll have a new OC, but if he doesn't, I don't think they'll gamble on someone who's not a proven commodity. JMO

    Kingsbury gone?

    Thank you for making my point: "I think they're going to want a proven HC if they decide to replace Helton." Kiffin and Sarkisian both got fired within two or three years, because they were not proven, successful head coaches before they got there. Sark had a mediocre record and a problem with...

    Kingsbury gone?

    Not sure USC would promote KK to HC, no matter how successful he is, given his record at TT. I think they're going to want a proven HC if they decide to replace Helton.

    Kingsbury gone?

    It wouldn't be unethical, but he's not going to replace MY, and KK wouldn't take the job anyway. KK will be angling for another HC job after a couple of successful seasons as an OC at a name-brand school.
