Sounds like the Tulane coach going to Georgia Tech isn't happening...as now the word is they are opting for Brent Key who has been the interim. So it appears GT is going the Arkansas route in a matter of speaking. Key was at one point tabbed to replace George O'Leary as hc at UCF but never got that chance. Former OL coach...meathead. They'll like him.

They should’ve hired him all along. He did a phenomenal job as the interim and is a GT alum. They’re lucky Fritz fell through because his tenure at Tulane until this year has largely been mediocre.

Trent Dilfer to UAB?

https://twitter.com/footballscoop/status/1597791499416047616?s=61&t=AcI4q5jlxtvaHbxXpnDVLA

It is telling that Coach Prime’s best offer so far seems to be Colorado and he got zero play at GA Tech or Auburn.

KY Jelly just fired their OC who had a $2.5 mill buyout. And the RB coach is out too.

I was just going to post something about Dilfer.  How much coaching experience does he have?  He apparently is at something called Lipscomb Academy in Nashville, which I believe is a high school.

Sam's got it going in the right direction!

Dilfer (and the Lipscomb boosters) made that academy into Tennessee's IMG.

former Hog GA Chip Long has been let go from GA Tech where he was the OC. He's been the OC at Notre Dame. Memphis, Tulane, and GT.

Nebraska's interim Mickey Joseph was arrested on battery charges today.

There’s a good chance he was just demonstrating proper tackling form and the folks in Lincoln didn’t recognize it.

Carolina on my mind...

I'm curious what's going on at Tulane.  Nobody's won there in forever.  Who's their coach?

Some guy named Fritts, or maybe Fritz.  He was rumored to be going to Georgia Tech, but didn’t.

Willie Fritz.

He seemed to be a name that always got thrown around as a message board “what about this guy” type of coach in a few of our searches.

He’s had an extremely mediocre tenure at Tulane except for this year. He’s 62, so I assume he didn’t feel like starting over at a new school at his age when he can just get a retirement contract from Tulane for this season.

He actually played at Pittsburg State with Pittman but was a year or two older than him.

David Shaw's demise may have started before NIL but certainly by 2019 the winds of change were already here. Transfer rules were relaxed by then,  how much of that hurt Stanford I don't know because I don't follow that program. Basically I'm talking out of my ass but certainly you can see that the wheels feel off the wagon since 2019. I do wonder if the culture around that program has for whatever reason gone stagnant...they used to have a pretty dang good men's bb program. Not so much anymore.

If he wants a new job in the future (and at 50 years old I think it's a real possibility) it would be foolish to not take that seriously no matter which school it is. Certainly he's feasted on a weak as fuck PAC10/12 in the absence of Pete Carroll and for a time Chip Kelly he also benefited from what Jim Harbaugh had built. So there are things you can pick at just like you can pick at for other coaches. At any rate he won 10+ games 5 times over like a 7 year period before things fell apart. That's not bad. I reckon someone will give him a gig at some point and why not take that free money at 10+ per year.

I am excited about Key.

I am glad Long is gone and Weinke is staying.

There are conflicting reports about Weinke having more to do with the last few weeks than before.

We were playing with QB3 and QB4, stayed with U(sic)GA for a half but they have been farting around this year with their margins.

GT3 QB was so bad his first trip out that in the final play with a hail Mary situation he just ambled right on out of bounds.
Afterwards he said, "That was a bad look."

He is a smaller school QB brought in like the UA guy,  They had him serviceable at the end of the year.


Everybody should have 2 teams to root for.  You'd see a LOT of parallels in fan bases.  Whenever you feel like griping about our reactions to things remember - all fan bases are like that.

I thought Kendal Briles was a lock for a head coaching job this year.  Maybe next?  I'm still holding out hope that South Carolina will save us from him.

That's embarrassing.  Looks like Josh Duggar when his parents asked him to babysit.

I think we all know which poster you're talking about.

It’s pretty bizarre how many coaches there have been down here who were once at major college programs.  Yet no one has pissed more than a drop or two.   I mean, it would be like UALR having a football team since it’s basically a commuter school.  And because of the demographics in this area it will never have tremendous fan support.  But it’s still kind of a shame. 

Fast guy, but can't see a hole if Moses or Jenna Jameson opened it for him.

Very true. Howard Schnellenberger, Kiffin, Taggart, and now Herman.

Who knows if he’ll piss a drop at FAU, but on paper Herman is a good hire. His tenure at Texas wasn’t THAT bad. He was just a douchebag who didn’t live up to the hype of being one of the bigger “can’t miss” hires in recent years. But his record at Texas wasn’t terrible, especially when silhouetted against the derp of late era Mack Brown, Charlie Strong, and now Sark. He was 32-18, won a bowl game every year, had their only 10 win season of the 2010s, a Sugar Bowl win, and three top 25 finishes.

I don’t know what he will be paid at FAU, but probably at least a couple of million dollars.  Why not take a job like that on the beach somewhere for a couple of years? 

Sam's got it going in the right direction!

And in typical Arkansas fashion, the Hogs will get pummeled like 70-0 by a Briles led offense.
