  1. David Shaw for instance. Who was making 9.25 to deliver that garbage product. Is the Stanford job inherently hard? Yes. Very much so. Did he get the keys to a Ferrari and drive that motherfucker into every telephone poll in sight? Also yes. Shaw with one of the worst roster management jobs in all of p5 football over his tenure. The second the Harbaugh recruits were gone that team went from handing out physical beatdowns to it's current clown show, esp once he lost Bloomgren to Rice (note that the last time a Shaw team was ranked Bloomgren was there). Shaw's last 3 non-covid seasons he went 6-21 in conference with numerous 20+ point ass kickings - all while making top dollar to be completely uncompetitive during a conference wide mediocre run in the Pac. He should've been fired before but he's an alum and a "nice dude" and so he stayed around long enough to leave a disastrous roster for the next coach to try and rebuild (esp difficult given the challenges around transfers and Stanford not accepting them). Do I expect the next guy will be Harbaugh and get them into the top 5-10 on the regular? fuck no, but there are a fuckton of coaches that can do more at Stanford than 6-21 and they'll do it for far less that 9.25 per, even in the world of NIL and the evolving landscape. Shaw was just bad. Stanford is not going to do away with football, FFS - I think it's far more likely that they move closer to Notre Dame's model with this next hire. They clearly care enough about football to pay Shaw top tier money.
  2. auburnfotbal with 1 L, so yes.
  3. I'm not one of the OU guys but - this group is coached by Jay Valai and Brandon Hall. To me if you look and the 2-deep and their position coaches this group has the most obvious problems. Two coaches who aren't technique guys or even in their best position group (Hall is better with LBs). Sure, getting Fields out by grad transfer and Broiles out by moving Lawrence to S seems like two possible upgrades but I don't know that this staff will be the one to develop Lawrence.
  4. A season is 3 games played per year in the NFL. Malik has eclipsed the 3 years necessary to make the NFL pension program (and the tuition reimbursement program) and with one more season of at least 3 appearances he'll be qualified for the Player Annuity Program as well. There are other programs that he may be a part of that also increase your retirement portfoliol. It's not set-for-life or fuck you money, but the guy has made enough money and has enough retirement padding to live well in his retired years with an even average income going forward, so anything he makes from now to 55+ is just adding to that QOL. (** assuming he hasn't amassed a mountain of idiotic debt as many guys do)
  5. Not that it will matter in this game because WKU will be way too much for them but Austin Peay's HC is wunderkind Scotty Walden and Walden is a name people should get familiar with if you like to track up-and-comers. When he got the Peay job Walden grabbed Josh Cochran from Mack's UNC support staff and after a weird covid season where Peay played half their schedule in the spring - he was elevated to OC last season. Cochran has since joined McGuire's Tech staff as well under shit-hot Kittley and is proving to be a damn good recruiter and is also a name to keep track of.
  6. Oh boy… sure to be a circus. https://247sports.com/Player/Tory-Blaylock-46117015/
  7. Preexisting familial friends hanging out at the beach isn’t a crime and the number of Manning family friends that are involved in coaching, as agents, as “boosters”, have kids actively playing on one team or another, etc is going to be everyone they know. this is much ado about nothing.
  8. Cooks was a separate discussion and not germane to the coaching staff not playing the best players. Go back to the kid's table if you can't keep up with adult conversation. Foster being a starter and going to SHSU while the 3rd and 4th string guys behind him that played 0 snaps ended up at Tech and SMU respectively was one conversation. Cooks never even trying to play at Texas because he liked Hutzler was another. Stupid as fuck indeed, not hilarious though.
  9. He loved Hutzler. I think it truly was as simple as that. He's pretty solidly second team for them rn and has played some with the 1s as well.
  10. He's dropped more weight so I think that ship has sailed - he's playing both FS and SS (I think he's gonna be first of the bench at both spots) - played both in the spring game for them.
  11. Cooks to TCU. Owens to Tech. Honestly Adimora and that fucking spare Abiara aren't dropping far and Symons is a rising star as a DC. I don't know if the off-the-field stuff will be too much to overcome but Jordon Thomas can play at the p5 level as well. It's telling to me that the guys that did drop down were the guys this staff played. Foster who ended up at SHSU and Warren at Texas State. Guys like Cooks, Owens, Adimora didn't see the field.
