Around and around the Pac-12 coaching carousel turns.
Lots of discussion here about DeBoer and Hoke, and earlier about Jay Norvell, all successful head coaches from the Mountain West and making about $1 million a year or less. Does anyone think that Cal would have beaten Fresno or San Diego State this year after losing the way they did to Nevada? It makes you realize what a terrible return on investment Cal is getting with the $3 million a year they are paying Wilcox. The fan base is utterly apathetic, and it shows in the stadium attendance this year. The networks don't care about Cal, either, with more than half the games on the Pac 12 channel. The only people who truly care are on this blog, all 100 of us.
You had to know the rumors that Wilcox was high on Washington's consideration list was all smoke. Shame on Wilner for starting them. There is absolutely no way a university with those resources and money would hire a guy with a 14-26 record in conference. Wilcox is Cal's specific problem, and I think he is only going to leave when he is shown the exits.
Can we hire Tedford as our OC? Less stress on his health; already knows Wilcox. Musgrave's got to go.
Jeff Tedford for AD
Sonny creating a "Hot Ticket" with a Memorial return?? There are no hot tickets, at Cal. Just the empty seats caused by mediocre football.
I think Pete Carroll is going to be fired. He's 70 but still looks young and he's from San Francisco. He can fire up fanbase.
If CFB was World War II, which nation would Cal be? I'm assuming that SEC is the Axis and everyone is the Allies...
My usual, almost instant reaction to the new coach hired news is to hit that teams main blog site to see the variety of comments and get some kicks out of them or dwell over the reasoned-out post. Gonna hold off till later this evening as I've read too much new/fire coach stuff lately and have hit my limit.
New target: Brady Hoke. Coached at Michigan, doing great at SDSU now.
Just noticed the Brian Kelly news. Then read a rather scathing article on it on Yahoo Sports by a USA Today by Dan Wolken. Pretty interesting take on it.
Brian Kelly to LSU? Whoa. Didn't see that one. Fickell to ND seems almost too tidy.
Spencer Rattler in transfer portal. He'll wanna go somewhere where he can start immediately.
So we are buying houses now?!? Private jets for family?
CFB is truly a Republicans wet dream. It is laissez faire capitalism on steroids.
dawgpound seems to be content. We shall see in 4 years time.
DeBoer sounds like a great hire. More problems for Cal in the north. Meanwhile Wilcox looks more and more like damaged goods. There was a reprieve after the big win over Furd but the goodwill created was lost a week later in the UCLA carnage.
Another fail by Cal. Knowlton has got to go.
