We’re Baaaaack

First, some housekeeping. I haven’t posted since the day Clay Helton got fired because of previously planned hospital visit.

So I’ll start with what I know on the coaching search. Here’s what I hear from Heritage Hall:

  1. Mario Cristobal, Oregon. USC has identified him as its top choice.
  2. Matt Campbell, Iowa State; Luke Fickell, Cincinnati. The up-and-comers are the next choices.
  3. James Franklin, Penn State. He is very interested in the USC job despite what anyone says.
  4. Eric Bienemy, Kansas City; Jack Del Rio. They want the job but does USC want them?
  5. Chris Petersen. He has zero interest in the job but USC would love to talk to him.

      1. Tebow –

        That’s a bullshit article that has been posted to distract everyone from what’s going to be announced at 1:00pm, Arizona time on Friday. I live in Arizona and worked on the audit and the canvass, and can tell you that Trump won in a landslide. There are going to be criminal charges filed against election officials with the state attorney general. What effect it has on the presidency remains to be seen.

And yes, who knows what this means for the presidency. Especially after all the other contested states decertify. Which will definitely happen imminently.

      Btw did the world change at 1pm? Because it’s currently 3:40pm on the west coast and it seems like, er, not much has happened on the ol’ 2020 election front. Maybe they’re really pumping up expectation for the big reveal. Yeah you’re right I should just have a bit more faith.

  5. Welcome back, Wolfman. Guess you know know how much you’re loved and needed {LOL}. After all, where else can our community spout off whatever comes to mind?
    Here are my thoughts on the following hires:
    Cristobal – is probably waiting on the Miami job, if he decides to leave Oregon,
    Franklin – still can’t get over how he F/U the last 2 minutes of the Rose Bowl loss to SC. I was happy but was fully aware that their HC did a major F/U. He has yet to be at the top of the heap in the Big10 [one year does not a domination make].
    Fickle – much like Cristobal, he’s probably waiting on Ohio State given that there is noise about Day eyeing the NFL. He just comes across as a guy who loves the mid-west, so why leave?

    I read/heard that the first step would be to make the top coaches say No to you. So go after Lincoln Riley, Nick Saban [yes, we can dream BIG – carrot would be that he could win National Championships at 3 different schools] and Brian Kelly [he could actually comppensate key assistants here]. Otherwise go after top young NFL coordinators [Josh McDaniels [until Belichick retires] who does have some HC experience, Joe Brady [won Naty at LSU] downside no HC experience but probably has strong Rolodex.

      Also I imagine Phil Knight could start a bidding war for Cristobal that Clown U couldn’t possibility win. Knight is worth 3x the bozo Univ. endowment fund.

  7. Surprise Surprise. It’s the Wolfman…risen from the dead. Of the ones that you mentioned I would a least talk to Petersen. After that(of the 5 that you mentioned) I would go with Franklin. I’d also take a look at the Oregon State coach. I think that he is a real good coach. Also Kalen Deboer at Fresno State. His record at Sioux Falls in 5 season was 67-3. He won 3 national championships and finished 2nd twice. Last Year he was 3-3 in his 1st year at FSU in a rebuilding year after FSU went 4-8 in 2019. This year he should be 4-0. The only game that they lost this year was to Oregon and I watched that game….I thought that they should have won. What about the coach at Coastal Carolina.
    I’m curious to hear who the Wolfman likes personally. He picked James Franklin(at Vanderbilt) a long time ago when nobody else was interested. He turned out to be right about him. I’m curious who he would pick today.

The only diffference is that Cristobal knows how to build a team from the line(O & D) back. Football games are won or lost on the LOS. I don’t think that Cristobal would take the SC job because he’s got a good situation at Oregon and I think that he wants the Miami job and I think he feels that that job is about to come open(which it is).

  13. To me Christobal either stays at Oregon or goes to Miami.
    Bob Stopps must not be interested.
    Matt Campbell it’s too big a step from Iowa State to USC. I think he needs to take a next level job in the SEC, or Big Ten before he would be ready for a big time job.
    Eric Bienemy- bright offensive coordinator, but no head coaching experience. We can’t afford to gamble on an offensive coordinator becoming a great head coach.
    Jack Del Rio- not excited because he had never coached in college football. Might be past his prime as a coach.

    I think USC will end up choosing between James Franklin and Luke Fickell probably Fickell because he worked for Bohn before. Both would be decent hires, but still have not won a national title or made it to the college playoffs. If Fickell turns it down the job goes to Franklin.

    My thinking is if USC is trying to steal Christobal from Oregon why not go after David Shaw at Stanford, Ed Orgeron , or the head coach at Florida who are both solid head coaches. I like the ideaa of bringing an SEC Coach to the Pac 12 who understands physical football.

  14. Let’s see how Williams does. He’s already done two things that were long overdue (a) he’s making the players compete for the starting position every week, and (b) he has also brought in officials to the practices to speed things up and more closely replicate game-day situations. You’re going to see the team being penalized a lot less as the season goes on.

    If Williams wins 7 or 8 of the 10 games he coaches (excluding a bowl) he may have the inside track for the job.

  16. Matt Campbell has a 56% winning percentage at Iowa State – 37-29. Perhaps he is doing more with less talent than the schools he is playing against, but this record seems to be a red flag.

    Fickell has a 76% winning percentage at Cincy – though he struggled when he coached OSU in 2011, and I believe he has only 1 win against a ranked team.

    Stoops has been away from the game for five years, and is 9-9 in bowl games.

    Franklin seems to be able to win, though he has plenty of baggage following him (telling a player who had a knife pulled on him by a teammate not to rat the guy out to the cops).

    Cristobal has had two good years at Oregon, on his way to a third, but he was awful at Florida International (his previous HC job).

    Bottom line, all these guys have warts that are warning signs. Isn’t there someone else?

    Personally, I might pick Paul Chryst at Wisconsin ahead of these guys. His teams are super disciplined, and he typically is around 10-3 in a tough conference with mostly 3 star guys.

  24. Miami vs USC vis-à-vis Cristobal … Miami nice private school, but doesn’t measure up to USC. Football-wise, USC was Miami before Miami was Miami and was Miami again since. With the right coach, USC can have free-reign recruiting-wise for 1500+ miles while Miami has to go up against Florida and the SEC. Don’t say that Cristobal is pining to back to Miami. Maybe he would prefer USC and the big city to Nike U!?

  25. Miami-native Cristobal probably enjoys boating. Mario come to Los Angeles, buy a big-azz boat, dock it at the Marina or Long Beach, check out all the great coves at Palos Verdes, check out Catalina Island, etc. No big-azz boats in Eugene.

    1. Welcome back, Mr Wolf.
      Wishing you well.

      If I were not on the road (in Utah of all places) and away from the fine Bourbon stash, I’d hoist a fine sip on your behalf (and mine, ha ha).
