Re: Doug Gillin?

It appears to me that Doug had planned and set things up for Clark to be the next coach, especially since he had the title of "Associate Head Coach." Also, Doug saw the real potential for Drink to leave earlier this season and I'm sure was already conducting a confidential search of potential candid...

Re: Who stays, who goes?

Seems like there were some logistical issues with last year's bowl game also because the ops guy left, was that Josh Thompson?

Re: OFFICIAL: SHAWN CLARK HC

I'm planning to watch the Rose Bowl (Wisconsin) and Pinstripe Bowl (Wake) for a preview of next year's P5 opponents. My feeling is that Wake next year will be a similar challenge as North Carolina was this year but Wisconsin is a huge step up over South Carolina...it's an opportunity for Mr Clark t...

Re: Doug Gillin?

I have heard a big donor but that is just hearsay at this point. Dunno for sure. I'm just glad he's sticking around a little while longer. Sadly, we can't keep fighting the bigger paychecks forever. IF we get invited to the AAC within the next couple of years we'll have more funding available for s...

Re: OFFICIAL: SHAWN CLARK HC

So, I'm thinking they did a straw man poll of the BOT and all were good with Clark and since he was already on staff none of the HR stuff had to happen which can slow things down. So they went ahead and leaked the news yesterday that he was going to be named HC before the formal BOT session tomorro...

This is still good for our program as we're still being talked about by the elites in the college football world.

Re: Doug Gillin?

DG has been very silent. Now that Drink is officially gone, if don't hear something from him in the 24 hours, the concern should be very real. Not necessarily, he is in the middle of a coaching search We hope. A statement should be made by your AD within 24 hours of your HC taking another job. Tick...

Re: ESPN 150 greatest coaches

One of the things that amazes me about Coach Moore was his willingness to scrap everything he knew and had done offensively in football and at a fairly "advanced" age made a bold decision and switched to the Spread. He then focused on getting players with speed instead of size that fit that scheme a...

I'm good with Clark based on his resume, player support, and obvious App ties but we must seriously complete our due diligence in a professional and methodical manner...so can someone post a picture of him in a visor please?!??

Re: Thank you Drink

I am thankful for the season that we've had and Drink was definitely a major part of that. We're not going to get any mileage out of bad-mouthing him at this point. I'd rather have an ally at an SEC school singing the praises of our program. It's better to have friends than enemies. These kinds of t...

Re: Doug Gillin?

Yes. DGs name has been on a few desks this year. Reality is, funding is a hurdle here. There is a reason I, along with others, have been pushing the Yosef Club heavy this year. We have a lot of projects going on, and that costs a lot of money, and there is bound to be shortfalls. I love DG and woul...
