Re: Coaching Changes

It's shameful that SMU replaced Morris with Dykes. SMU and UCF each had an opportunity for huge hires and they both blew it. That's not to say that their coaches won't work out, but it is to say that there were better options available at the time.

Re: Coaching Changes

Morris brought in his P5 and JUCO mercenaries for a short term pop, which he barely got with the hideous goal line call. He will definitely cash in with the first offer he gets. I agree, him going to Arkansas says a lot more about where Arkansas stands than where Morris stands--similar to the embar...

Re: Coaching Changes

That’s true, but one could say the same thing about Chad Morris. It’s true that SMU is bowl eligible this year, but that’s not a big deal for that program. This is their 5th bowl team in over 30 years. SMU hasn't fielded a ranked team (end of season), without cheating, in nearly 50 years. Morris' C...

Re: Coaching Changes

I can't believe this is even a conversation. WF is not going anywhere. He won't interview for the job. He hasn't accomplished anything worthy of someone offering him another job. He has improved the culture and to some degree the talent, but nobody hires you for a D1 football job on those merits. G...

Re: Coaching Changes

SMU should just hire Sumlin or Kiffin (or Meacham!) at this point, but, given how the AAC has made curious hires over the last couple of years (i.e. UCF and Houston), SMU may find a way to bypass big name coaches and hire a nobody.

Re: Coaching Changes

I just really hope that, no matter what coaches end up leaving the AAC (i.e. Norvell/Strong/etc.), the AAC decides to make some flashy hires of the Kiffin/Sumlin/Miles/Meacham variety.

That decision feels similar to Houston's decision to hire Applewhite instead of Kiffin or Riley.

Re: Coaching Changes

Take away games against non-P5 schools and there would be a lot of P5s sitting home not going bowling. I think a lot of them play the smoke and mirrors thing. Get 3 OOC wins, split your conf every year and you're 7-5. Win the bowl game every other year and some years your 8-5, some 7-6. That's how ...

Re: Coaching Changes

To provide context, Sumlin is the #5 coach in Texas A&M history, as, for one reason or another, Texas A&M has consistently underperformed.

It's good to see that the majority of the bowls are against P5s, but I'm more concerned about the G5 bowls because that is where the AAC seems to consistently fail.

On the other hand we were 17 points away from ending up 2-9. That "good loss" to Navy ended up being a "pretty ok loss". That huge corner turning win over Tulsa led us running head first into a brick wall. We lost to an alright FIU team and a terrible Cincy team. It took overtim...

Re: Post season analysis

Safe housing zoned to good schools is very expensive inside the vast majority of large cities located inside of MSA's with total populations above 1M.

If that rumor is true, the issue isn't money - they just want to live in a college town environment.
