    You talking to me? Last time I checked "Mari" aint my name patna...just call me Chris if you can't spell it correctly. Btw...we're not competing with those schools above for these coaches. We just got beat out by f*cking Oregon for Cristobal and that should never happen...period! Also we are the flagship program in the state and a SEC school to boot...so FSU shouldn't ever beat us out for anyone...EVER!

    You're getting really charged over this, and taking something personally for no reason that I can think of. "Mari" is short for Marianna and something Ive seen you referred to as quite often on this board. Law says it all the time. I wasn't calling you some name or something.

    As far as who we are competing with, I'm not talking about this specific instance. I'm talking about in general. We are competing with those schools I mentioned every day of the year with the exception of OK only. As far as flagship and all that other rah rah stuff, it doesn't really matter to a coach who is a hotshot up and comer on the rise. What he cares about is getting good money, and getting it from someone who's winning and putting him in position to be really successful and get national exposure if possible. If Mac is the only one offering big money then sure, we'll get mr assistant. But tell me what assistant that's a great addition isn't on everyone's radar. If they are worth having, it's going to be a competition with the big boys with big pockets because that's how it works. And if we are all competing financially, then they are going to usually decide to go where they are best put in position to win.

    Again, even if we pay the same as the big hot programs right now, a lot of coaches may go elsewhere because why take X amount of money to work for Mac when you take X and work for someone better? I'll say it one more time and that will be the end of my comments on the matter. Our problem is Mac, not money in my opinion.

    Mac has done nothing but let us down since he took over. I don't know why y'all thought he wouldn't let y'all down with coaching moves as well. He might be the dumbest coach we've ever had. I already think he's the worse in my lifetime

    I see where you are coming from bruh but obviously we're not going to agree on this. My point is open up the wallet and outbid these f*ckers for once! We need a huge shot in the arm on the trail...they know the bums we have can't get $hit done...so why bull$hit around? They need to be aggressive and go get some elite coaches who can put us back on the map!

    I mean do i think if we just grossly outbid all the big programs we could get whoever we wanted? Sure, but that's never going to happen so I don't really spend much time considering it.

    I heard that too, he also had said that he had been texting Locksley and he believed he would end up here, but if anybody can screw up a sure thing it's Mac.

    I just think we need some momentum (in a big way) right now for our program and if grossly outbidding folks this once is what we have to do...so be it!

    Probably time to give up on ever being an elite football power again, we don't have the right " do whatever it takes attitude " at our highest levels of administration that the elite programs do. It's not all on Mac, but for now on we probably won't be able to attract and keep any higher caliber of head coaches than him. Get use to the 8-9 win at best seasons and the 3 star recruits.

    Yep...it looks like they would rather keep the money to themselves than put it into the program. Damn shame!

    Oregon hasn't officially announced Cristobal either. Everything is speculation. But of course it looks like Mac went "yes masta anything you say masta" with saban and will only get coaching scraps saban doesn't want

    Don't want to horn in on your repartee, but I'll offer an opinion...time was, a significant pay raise and/or an elevated title would make a coach move and a lot of the time it might be a lateral move. But the place where money falls short is if you are trying to get a guy to leave a good, stable situation and go to one where it might be considered a dead-end, have them work for a HC that has a foot in the employment grave, has a bad reputation, or is not a match philosophically. All of this, I think, holds true today. There are a few opinions on Mac and I'm not 100% sure which is the most accurate, but I think I have a good idea. How successful he is in re-tooling the staff will reveal a lot more to us.

    This is my point. Why leave for a lateral, or even a promotion if you are going to a place full of turmoil and to work for a coach who isn't exactly a fan favorite unless you don't have many other options? Money is nice, but Ive been offered much bigger money than i currently was making to go somewhere where a lot of problems existed. I declined and it was a smart move. A year later the org was out of business and a lot of folks were looking for work.

    I would be curious as to what your opinion of him might be? You seem to be a pretty accurate "reader" of people. I have my own thoughts about his coaching "ceiling" but I doubt they are as well founded on reality as yours.

    Until any of it actually happens, it's all been speculation. Pure speculation.
