How do you know Seth is not a good recruiter of DFW? The schools he as been at recruit from everywhere why would he not keep his own back recruiting up to speed. For sake of argument lets just suppose the recruiting side is a wash, I do think thoughts about recruiting Texas are assumptions anyways. How do you stand?
Plus recruiting will be a big part of what his staff will half to do.
I would have to completely disagree with this and I do believe Seth Littrell is the superior candidate almost hands down. He has more time at OC, more energy, younger, hungrier. I am not saying Meacham is not a great candidate. I do believe Seth to have much more upside.
Everything I have heard from people close to this said RV has nothing to do with this hire, he is a figure head AD only making only the press statements that Smatresk gives him to announce. I won't be completely happy either until RV is gone at this point. Knowing that RV did not have his hand in this makes me happier though.
No idea if they are or not, or if it even happens, I have heard it spread around once or twice. It is speculation probably but I don't really know one way or another. I was plenty upset without that. Lifer you might be coming close to joining the dark side. Be careful.
What if you had unlimited team access and got to constantly fly on the team plane, was wined and dined on the AD at every opportunity and possibly got work contracts for the University out of it? Oh and it is North Texas on the "no sense" part. I would still want RV long gone.
I don't think the leverage part is true, all we have is speculation from Vito, I doubt deals will be done on it. I also would not worry about Littrell wanting more than a 5 year contract, 5 year contracts are the most common I believe. If he is good he will be gone in 5 years or less.
