I'm really coming around on Jimbo solely because he would bring an unbelievable staff around him and we would recruit very very well. Gruden is everybody's #1, and then I'd go Stoops at #2 (but he makes to much money @ OU to leave) but these 2 are real longshots...
My next 3 which are extremely realistic and I think would come here if we splashed 3.5 to 4 mill.
I'd be happy with any of these three...
So here's my question, and it may be a thinker. If you want Jimbo Fisher to be our HC, do you cheer for FSU to win tomorrow or to lose tomorrow?
I hope they win. My reason is FSU would've had an awesome year. Beating UF and Clemson and VT and Miami among others. They lost 1 game by 1 point and are 10th in the BCS. The ACC is already starting to blow up and I think he wants out of that conference. In the SEC if you lose 1 game there's a good chance you're playing the National Championship, in the ACC you don't even get a sniff.
I'd be surprised if Jimbo isn't at Tennessee or Auburn next year. The ACC is a dumspter fire.
I dont think I would pay that much for Strong. If he doesnt work out that would be a huge buy-out in a few years. I just dont think he is proven enough for that much of a risk. I like strong just not for $3.5 million.
I have heard there are strained relations between Jimbo and AD. I am also aware that Jimbo's agent is one who put his clients names out there to get them more money at their current school. All in all I would be shocked if Fisher left FSU for UT. FSU is set to be the next school that jumps the burning ship that is the ACC. They voted against raising the out fee that MD is going to pay. It is a matter of when FSU leaves the ACC. Jimbo has not worries about coaching in the ACC and everything to worry about coaching in the SEC. I don't see this one happening.
Plus, he has the whole state of Florida to recruit in.
Driz, I am of the opinion that you can book it. Fisher will be out next coach.
I hope not. I witnessed him call head scratchers all game against a bad Va. Tech defense. Negative 15 yards rushing.
But did they win? Every coach is going to call a dud once and a while. Listen to Drizzle, he's onto something.
Yes, with only seconds left. They won't beat UF tomorrow running the plays they did against Tech and rushing for Negative 15 yards.
BUTCH IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. GO VOLS!
