Saban saying that a coach's contract is an example of solving the problem is hilarious.
Coaches began this money grubbing era of no loyalty by getting ridiculously huge salaries and leaving their jobs the nanosecond a bigger one came open.
Didn't we pick up Jamario after that bowl game?
And yes, if all things were equal, you're absolutely right. An 8-win team carrying impressive momentum (doubling their win total from the previous season) in the AAC VS SBC would likely be a no-brainer choice for the AAC school.
But things are not equal. UNT REGRESSED from the previous season. Our momentum is going the wrong way.
If Kinne is able to sell recruits on being the next ranked team in the SBC (like AppSt, Louisiana, Troy, Coastal, & JMU), because his team is on the up-&-up, that may weigh more than Coach Morris' pitch... whatever that is right now... who is spinning wheels as far as results on the field are concerned.
I bet Kinne's goals next year are pretty high, and not playing in the 1st Responder bowl again.
With everything we lost in the offseason, UNT's should realistically be somewhere around #hit6, which would be an improvement.
Not to mention (coming back to the original argument), the target recruit in this scenario has his father on the coaching staff of 1 of the schools now, which only adds a little more strength to TXSt's pull.
Thank you!! That's the goal! I want to impact the game so that the broadcasters comment on the "large contingent of opposing fans".
I went to the Rice game too last year, that was my first time at Tudor Fieldhouse. If you decide to make the trip again this year let me know!
