Coach 2018
« on: November 10, 2017, 02:44:36 pm »

Just heard- Matt Campbell or Mike Norville. One of them will be our new head coach next year, barring some weird experiment. Jeff Long is kinda sitting this one out, or so I'm told. Big money grips have spoken.

But what I can't figure out is, who is the best choice?

So, if either fail will the "big money grips" be held accountable?

Would be nice.   Just a gut feeling, but Norvell I would think.   But that's splitting straws, be happy either way.

Novell would be about $6m cheaper.

Either are low risk, high reward.  Campbell has a little better track record and probably can demand more security.  Norvell is probably more innovative and cheaper to acquire/fire if it blows up.  I think both are outstanding coaches.  Personally, and its close...real close, Id go Norvell.

We may hire Knute Rockne's great great grandson for all I know, but this came from a sports writer. Word for word. And you know I don't kiss and tell, so that's all I have to say.

Nah, I'm saying this is the 2017's, we have a designated forum for coaching rumors. I hope it wasn't Bolin, lol....and watch where you're kissing, some may not know what tail you've been kissing.

I don't have a clue about his buyout. But apparently he is 1A compared to Norville's 1B. And this information, for what it's worth, happens to come from someone that is a member of Hogville.

I truly feel that Campbell would just be a stop for him till the next opportunity, but Norvell is one I could see making a career if he was successful.  Just a thought could be totally wrong.

5 million to fire BB and 5 million to buyout Campbell. Not likely. I take Norvell over him.

9.4 to buyout Campbell.

Would have to think some kind of negotiation has to happen to make it happen.

There have been others to look at his buyout and they came up with $6.4m, either way, it's going to take Jerra money, Warren money, Fletcher money, Lindsey money, George money......I think you get the drift.

Just wonder if we don't do a bit of Florida maneuvering too.  Worse ideas than paying Iowa State 2mil for a OOC game AND as a part of the buyout.


Since I'm dreaming, Iowa St. wouldn't be a bad landing spot for Bert.  Maybe greasing that wheel could be worth a bit too.

Big reason why Norvell makes so much cents sense. And heck, he already has a house here and everything.

He's had his little feelers out since the Aurbun game. Hopefully they get cut off. IMO he is a d-bag and we can do better.

Troof.

Or why not just give everyone in the stadium a bottle of Jim Beam and a bag of rocks to throw, that would be fairly entertaining.
