  • He will probably get Dorial Green Beckham going to sign here

    He's big on Solomon Thomas & Michael Dyer from what I hear.  He will probably sign them

  • Not with the younger generation. He's probably not even the biggest name out of work coach out there right now. Way more kids know who Les Miles is.

    Everyone recognizes him from his 1000 commercials and Monday night football.

    Its absurd to think more kids recognize Les Miles over the Monday Night football guy.

    If you are outside the SEC footprint very few could recognize Les Miles. Gruden is nationwide

    I'm just going by the 50+ high school football players that I'm around daily. They pay 0 attention to announcers, but they know who the crazy LSU coach was. You'd be surprised how little football high school football players watch. They have better things to do, and usually the last thing they want to do after getting out of a long Monday full of football practice is to go home and watch more football

    How much recruiting has he done? That's the name of the game now.
  • #43709 by Hawginj on 15 Nov 2017

    Campbell is not an option for anyone that buyout is huge.
  • #43711 by Hawg Life on 15 Nov 2017

    Mike Norvell. We won’t be able to get top 10 recruiting classes and go 8-5. If Gus averages 8 wins with top 10 talent what makes you think he’d average 7 wins here, he won’t. Gus is where he belongs. Norvell is only 36, just recruited the highest class ever @ Memphis, and we’re moving forward. Norvell doesn’t have the baggage.

    Apparently because he beat Georgia and had some miracle finishes in his first season at Auburn.  I've been told he isn't mediocre because of those two things.   ::)

    if rumors are true and we are offering Gus 6.4 million a year then we can afford the buyout

    No, but apparently many of you dream of Gus. Norvell is the perfect fit for us. I don’t have a dream hire or at least a realistic dream hire.

    why? Is it that hard to believe hes a good fit. I believe his offense would give opponets fits. His defense hasnt been great but they give up less points than we do and have been very good at causing turnovers.

    I want consistent success not a one off. They’ve finished in the top 10 in recruiting every year, and average 8 wins. That includes Cam (who they paid $180k) who wouldn’t have come here, and Stidham a preseason Heisman candidate who wouldn’t have come here either.

    Kiffin has, Venables has, Gus went with Chizik then went with Chiziks players.so there's that.

    Don't misunderstand.  I have no problem with your boy.  I'm just surprised that he's considered a dream hire at this point.

  • I don't understand why u wouldn't be happy with Gus he has been too a national title game .. none of those other Yahoo's have

    So we’re gonna put our hopes on one opposing team tipping a Hail Mary into the air and us running into the ball catching it to score a last second touchdown AND on Bama missing a 50-something yard field goal which we return 100 yards to win the game to get us to a NC? Sound logic.

    I can see that I didn t think much about it either until I started digging into it.

    But Norvell took over a winning G5 program. A little different than walking into the SECW with a depleted Arkansas roster.

  • But Norvell took over a winning G5 program. A little different than walking into the SECW with a depleted Arkansas roster.

    14 players Norvell recruited are starters, including Ferguson. He lost a 1st round QB that was Fuente’s QB. Fuente went to Arizona State to study Norvell’s offense after he took the Va.Tech job. Spend some time and see that Graham who was HC over both Gus & Norvell as coordinators say that Norvell was the best coach he’s ever seen. Norvell is best for us now..

    Richt is coaching at his alma mater. Might as well go ahead and say Lincoln Riley, Jim Harbaugh or Dabo Swinney while you're at it. lol

  • #43749 by Jackrabbit Hog on 16 Nov 2017
  • Yes, this is for real.  Tennessee honestly thinks that they can get him to come be their coach.  In fairness, he does have several ties to the program and the area, plus his future at ESPN can't be as secure as it was a few years ago, given all the cuts and lay-offs. 
  • #43750 by SooieGeneris on 16 Nov 2017
  • Gruden would fare about as well in college as Spurrier and Kelly did in the NFL IMO. He has made comments numerous times about his disdain for the NCAA rulebook. If they want to hire him, they better be prepared to open up the vault, also..
