Let’s move on

Yep, he wants to leave then go. Let an interim handle the bowl game. 

I'd hope we can have his replacement hired before seth can clean out his desk. Just change the locks on the athletic center.

wish I knew the short list. We better do a better job of hiring our coach then KSU did.  They screwed to the wall with the delays.

Wow, the tone has changed in 12 hours. I haven’t heard or read anything yet about SL leaving. Anyone heard/read something that he’s committed to KSU? I read last night he did interview with the KState AD over the phone.

Is Jim Leavitt in a situation now where he only seriously considers a P5 head coaching gig? If he’s being passed on at KState, I wonder if he’d consider it? Hasn’t seemed to get too much head coaching traction since the USF situation.

I bet McNutt is interested.  He is interested in every job.

Maybe we could hire McNutt and have Freeze be the OC that way we have MMA fights after every game.

As a Tampa Bay Bucs fan I’d look at Todd Monken. Number 1 in yards and top 10 in points scored in the NFL and success as a HC at Southern Miss. Turned Ryan Fitzpatrick into a good QB for a few weeks. Unfortunately I think he’s done well enough that if the staff is fired in Tampa (which I think is looking less likely) he’ll probably get an OC job somewhere else in the NFL.

I read today KSU is hiring a search firm and may not name anyone before early signing, or maybe right around that time, so dig in and hunker down.

That would be insane, they need their new coach to start swaying recruits to them ASAP.  Our class is ranked way ahead of theirs at this point.

With the giant let downs we have had this year on the field I have always looked ahead to our recruiting class. If we lose that this entire year would be a loss.

Give me the guy who whipped us.

I saw Mumme mentioned once, and I think it was in jest.

Yeah that was me and it sort of was but it’s not crazy to look at.  He’s the dude.  I think he must have some issues with how much of a journeyman he is and he’s older now...but he innovated the offense and entire philosophy our program is built on.  I recommend reading The Perfect Pass...changed the way I watch the Air Raid.

The problem with Mumme is he's sticking to the original air raid concepts and dying to them. Look at his last few teams.

Guys like Leach, Kingsbury, Riley, and hell even Briles are taking the Air Raid and perfecting it in their own unique ways. Mumme was an innovator for sure, but I think his air raid, and its subsequent effectiveness, are long gone.

To be honest I haven’t watched any of his teams in the last decade outside of 13 SMU and that was too long ago to remember much. 

Upon review of his recent teams' records though it'd appear you're right.

I was thinking that they had only three wins going into the playoffs, so I thought they were going to be the sacrificial lamb for Dumas in the first round. Turns out I was wrong. I've tried to get an explanation from my brother-in-law (who covers Sacred Heart on the web) but he hasn't responded.  I don't understand it either. I can only guess that some key player (like a QB) has returned just in time for the playoffs. 

Boy have things ever changed since I was in High School. From 1965 to 67 Jacksboro's record was 27-3 and they didn't go into the playoffs any of those years (thanks to Decatur) despite being consistently ranked in the top 5 of their classification.
