        Not sure who it will be but damn sure can't be as ****ty as our last 3 if mullen is true. Probably Taggart or frost.

        Frost is going to Nebraska, he basically refused to meet with UF officials and they're stories out there that Tom Osborne called him and said, we need you, it's time to come home......that would impossible to turn down...

        Dude FSU is not a job people line up for. It’s in no way better than Florida and if Jimbo leaves what does that say? Frost is not going to FSU. Taggart might and they will get all the recruits if he does.

          I heard Mullen's agent inserted a clause that says he will always be - at least - the 2nd highest paid coach in the conference. So if Jimbo gets $7.5 million, Mullen's kicker goes into effect and he gets a $500,001 raise before he coaches his first game.

          (just kidding....but w/ our luck...and our past contract negotiating skills, it wouldn't surprise me)

              How can you say that when they’ve only had a coach for like 25 years in Bowden then hired from within. There’s nothing to support that people won’t want to go there. Frankly I think they get someone better than us (probably Taggert) and continue to own our ass. sad but true.

                Now all of a sudden Taggart is good? This board would have collectively Killed themselves if we did.

                Nobody will make this board happy.

                  Bobby will call Terrry and tell him “son, it’s time to come home”.

                    Not good just better than Mullen. He will at least appeal to recruits.

                    I'm not sure how good Taggert is or who FSU gets, but you're probably right. Since 1987 - outside of 5 years under Meyer - FSU has pretty much owned us. Spurrier never could win in Tallahassee, we lost to them during our first NC year, and they have a big winning percentage on us over the last 30 years.....and they've only had 2 coaches during that time. We've had, what, 10 (including 3 interims)?

                    I hate FSU and I hope they pay to devil for their last few years of success under Jimbo and Jamies.

                      Jimbo was not a big time hire when they got him, it will be someone similar.

                      My guess is Neal Brown from Troy.

                        They will without a doubt make a better hire than we did. Gonna be very hard to get worse. And yes taggart is better than mullen .That's who they'll get. I promise.

                          haha. TAMU may be a tad disappointed. My impression was the Lubbuck PD was more ethical than TPD.

                            I will believe Jimbo leaving FSU when I see it. My guess is that he is angling for another raise.
                            The Aggies plays in the SEC West. That means having to run the annual gauntlet of Alabama/Auburn/LSU. Not to mention the decent teams being put up by Arky/MSU/Old Miss.
                            Jimbo has a huge ego, and isn't the easiest man to work for. He is buddies with the AD, but
                            is that enough to trump what he has in Tallahassee?

                              That may be true but completely irrelevant since TAMU is located in College Station which is about 600 miles from Lubbock.
                              Texas Tech is in Lubbock.
