  1. "The Grand Old Man of Football" Amos Alonzo Stagg (August 16, 1862 – March 17, 1965) Stagg was a member of the first "All American Team" in 1889 when he played at Yale. He then coached from 1890 to 1946 at the University of Chicago and the University of the Pacific and won the 1905 and 1913 National Championships. He designed much of the game of football during his career. Amos Alonzo Stagg with North Texas coach Odus Mitchell the night before the 1946 Optimist Bowl. The bowl game, a 14-13 loss to North Texas, was the final game of Stagg's legendary college football coaching career.

  2. That is one way to look at it. Another would be that given a full offseason together and the addition of a couple of key pieces, this year’s team could have built the foundation for something better. I wasn’t convinced this team was special or even a top conference team but I have a hard time imagining losing the entire top six on the roster is ever really a positive unless you are just awful. We were not great but far from awful.

  7. Does not necessarily mean we pulled it, he may have asked. We don't have to release him from his NLI National Letter of Intent, but can choose to do so.

  8. Tough opponent? We should have beat them last year. Personally, I hate posts that are state our opponent is tough. That should be worried about playing us.

  10. I guess he wasn't lying when he said he wanted out of his NLI to be somewhere closer to home. Not sure what his home situation is like (maybe he has family that needs help?), but UCA is much closer to it.

  11. Good for him. I'm glad he found somewhere close to home that he can play right away.

  13. Yes. I agree. My point is that it is a very small sample size in less than ideal conditions. If he was good enough to beat out the guy they brought in to be the starter last year, odds are he showed lots of promise. By all accounts they wanted it to be Rodgers last year, but Stone kept outplaying him in summer/fall camp. He also put up 3 touchdowns against Cal in 1 half(1 more than Auburn did in their game the next week) when Rodgers couldn’t do much. Stone now has another year in the system. I just think the fanbase has made up their mind off a small sample size since the coaching staff is always so hush hush on the day to day. I’m sure the new Chandler will get the job, but QB play is the least of my worries whether it’s Stone or Chandler.

  14. You're talking about this game, right? I just want to make sure your explanation of "starters came in and ruined it for Stone Earle" is referring to THIS game...

  15. Huge series that will determine first place in the conference. We swept FAU in Boca last year and now have the homefield advantage. We take outright possession of first place if we sweep the Owls again. FAU just needs one win this weekend to hold their footing over us in the standings. It'd be nice for Tulsa to lose a game or two this weekend at home against ECU to avoid further confusion in the standings. They're 10-5 in conference like us. Come out and support the ladies this weekend! I'm trying to make it to all three... there will be a drone show after tomorrow's game.

  16. The Spring portal closes on May 1st. Do we lose anyone else? Walker? Stone? Cotton? Sissoko is a grad transfer so he can leave anytime he wants.

  27. Yeah, sadly, I fear that the answer is pretty simple: we have the worst NIL in the conference. Until that changes, we'll be sending Hodge into a gunfight with a knife. The further we get into the NIL era, the harder it's going to be to keep up the momentum from past success. At this point we're basically just hoping and praying that Hodge is a WAY better coach/recruiter/evaluater than his AAC counterparts. Even if he is really good at those things, we can't just expect him to pull off miracles every single season.

  28. Good point. Again, the secrecy of this regime is part of the problem. Morris really limits access and info unlike any other coach I have ever seen. He supposedly got this from Leach but I didn't notice it as much with Littrell.

  29. Thanks for the above, that demonstrates whatever is going on at NT is unusual. Obviously, there is an explanation other than it is happening everywhere; because it is not to the extent it is at NT.

  31. Here are my overal picks, I kept in mind that this is a carved in stone list of the most infunential leaders in the game not just a hot name Bear Bryant (6 national championships - 14 SEC championships) 323 wins, 3rd most all time. - Bryant's coaching philosophy centered on discipline, toughness, and attention to detail. He emphasized hard work and demanded the utmost dedication from his players. Under his guidance, Alabama developed a reputation for physical, hard-nosed football that overwhelmed opponents. Bryant's innovative tactics and strategic acumen often left rival coaches scrambling to keep up. The 1960s and 1970s marked the peak of Bryant's coaching career. He led Alabama to six national championships, in 1961, 1964, 1965, 1973, 1978, and 1979, cementing his place among the coaching elite. Beyond the championships, Bryant's teams captured 13 Southeastern Conference (SEC) titles and achieved an unprecedented level of dominance during his tenure. Knute Rockne - Rockne created modern coaching. He was a brilliant tactician, to be sure, but he also created the coach as CEO. He marketed his small, Midwestern Catholic institution in America's biggest cities, taking his team to where the immigrant Catholics could root for them. He applied his motivational skills to business as a top executive for Studebaker cars -- while he coached. And Notre Dame kept winning. He had five unbeaten seasons and won four national titles (1919, 1924, 1929 and 1930). Rockne's winning percentage of .881 remains first among FBS coaches nearly a century after he died in a plane crash in 1931 at age 43. (imagine if he coached in to his 70's like Saban) Glenn "Pop" Warner -319 wins, 4th most all time. - Was a highly influential figure in the world of college football. Known for his innovative coaching techniques, commitment to player safety, and emphasis on academic success, Warner will forever be remembered for what he did for the sport and its development.One of Warner's most significant contributions to football was his emphasis on player safety. He implemented strict rules and techniques to protect players, including the use of helmets and padded equipment. Warner's commitment to the well-being of his players helped establish safety standards that have become integral to the sport.In addition to his coaching career, Warner played a key role in the establishment and development of youth football programs. He founded the Pop Warner Little Scholars organization, which aimed to promote the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of young athletes. Today, the Pop Warner youth football and cheerleading program is one of the largest and most respected youth sports organizations in the United States. Blank Rock - I think I am leaving space here to give some time for a future great coach (I can not put Nick Saban on up because he just retired, and while he is deserving for his tenure at Alabama I am not sure his overall contrbutions to the game rise to the level of the other 3 yet. I think he gets there with his coaching tree but want to give it 5-10 years before ensrinement) Bust to be put in the visitors center: Tom Osborne Charles "Bud" Wilkinson Joe Paterno Eddie Robinson Bobby Bowden Frank Leahy

  33. Getting to the NCAA tournament is an accomplishment. I think we have momentum and sustainability to lose. For us, that is a tremendous loss. Not to say we can't keep the mojo going, but it's easier when a trusted nucleus is returning.

  36. Yeah, I was just having some fun. Obviously things happen, but it's usually due to some miscommunication or disconnect between parties involved. Not that we cannot accurately count/estimate this sort of thing.

  37. We can build mirrors in outer space that can point a ray of light at a dime located on the Empire State Building. We can calculate the path of a total solar eclipse, referencing the path of two objects that are 240,000 miles away and 99 million miles away respectively, and pinpoint that exact time in 2044 - 20 years out - to the month and day. But here is someone that questions our ability to accurate count seats in a football stadium.

  38. Pretty sure there is this thing called “a computer” that would allow them to make models to properly calculate the seats per row.
