  1. Denial Anger <-- YOU ARE HERE Bargaining Depression Acceptance Barring some huge scandal, or SL deciding to drop kick one of the big donor's pets off McConnell Tower, he will be back next year.
  2. This is actually a replacement for the RedBox Bowl that was to be held in Cali. The organizers decided to drop it early this year, so this is actually just bringing up the number is bowls to the number expected at the start of the year.
  3. @UNT86 is spot on. This is for sure used against coaches. I'm not saying we HAVE to give anyone an extension, but a short contract will be used against a HC by other coaching staffs.
  4. No the rule you are thinking about is the spring practices rule. That does set a hard cap on the number of days. There is no cap on the number of practices when prepping for bowl games, you just have to follow the normal hours per week rule.
  5. That bus ride back from Monroe was GRIM.
  6. UTSA sideline was very weird. Thought they would come up with their hair on fire to keep that perfect record. Seemed pretty normal, if not a little lower. Maybe they shouldn't have spent the previous week shooting hype videos with rented Bentleys. Either way, when they got jumped on early they seemed to deflate. Pulling the starting QB at half seemed crazy to me. Yes, they were down 18, but they had a ton of miscues to set us up. Did they expect that to last? We had our own stalled drives and turnovers in the second half. If they had kept everyone in they might have crawled back into it or at least made it closer. Terrible message to send to you team, we outscore them 14-0 in the 3rd, and it's all over but the crying.
  7. SL base salary is $1.35M, but he has guaranteed incentives that boost each year to a minimum of just over $1.8M. SL contract was extended to run through 2023, so two more years left after this one. If anyone has $3.6M+ burning a hole in your pocket, I am sure WB wouldn't turn down a meeting.
  8. Of course it is. It might not have been a problem when we were paying Dickey $120,000 a year, but it sure as hell is when we are paying $2M+ a year to the HC alone. Do we have big donors that could pay off SL's contract, and then sign an even bigger check for a new coach with a bigger assistant pool? YES. Do they want to do that? If they don't, the AD doesn't have millions of dollars sitting around unused to do it. Neither does the school.
  9. I’m pretty sure the guy we wanted is now coaching at a p5 school. So we’re now onto second choices. Then be better talk the big donors into writing those checks, or write them himself. Otherwise it doesn’t matter. We switched the the offense from a spread to pass focus to a spread to run focus. We had ~40 pass attempts against latech, we had 17 against utsa, 14 against fiu.
  10. Some of you have no idea how a coach is hired or fired. Do the big donors want to buy him out? Then he’s gone. Otherwise he is back next year. END OF STORY. I don’t see how they want to 1) write the big check to buy him out, and then 2) write an even bigger check to wade into this insane sellers market where at least 20 teams are fighting for limited talent. This year you’re going to pay BIG money to get someone who would normally be your second or even third tier candidate.
  11. With a 42 pt win tonight, this is the biggest margin of victory since a 2019 45-3 win against... UTSA.
  12. UTSA has sold out the ticket allotment sent to them. They are already hitting the ticket office. Mean Green fans better show up or....
  13. Everyone does this, the dirty secret is that if someone buys a ticket and doesn't show up, that ticket will get reprinted and scanned. Yes, even the P5s. When a certain school to the south of us first came up, they had some big alumni buy a large amount of tickets for every game. Never even bothered to give them out they were just scanned to hit the numbers. The thing is the NCAA DOES care about FBS schools hitting 15k attendance, You have to turn in audited logs. They just don't really care how you hit that number.
  14. The kick catch interference call was correct. Yes, the returner bobbled it, but the ball never hit the ground. Kick catch protection ends WHEN THE BALL HITS THE GROUND. It was still on Burn's body when the UTEP player ran into him.

  16. No one can out coach recruiting. Find me the guy who knows how to recruit and can hire good recruiters. I feel our main problem is that when we've had some success in the past, the staff wasn't able to elevate recruiting enough to sustain it.
  17. Yes, but one of our wins is against an AAC team...
  18. Look at SHSU, this CUSA is actually more compact than the WAC.
  19. According to Johnny Cash: The Man.
