I thought I'd start this thread for discussion of why one is more deserving over the other. Some of you Turds are speaking to the fact that Freeze is a HC in the SEC while McElwain is only in the MWC. Or the fact that McElwain only has 2 years of HC experience and Meyer had 4 all the while Freeze has only 2 years. Some have mentioned CSU losing to Air Force, which runs a triple option, as a point to drive home. I believe Georgia just lost to a team that runs a similar offense. Let's really look at the background of these coaches: Jim McElwain Born in 1962 (52 for you math challenged) College QB at E. Washington Montana State (95-99) OC/WR/ST Coach Louisville (00-02) WR/ST Coach Mich. St. (03-05) Asst. HC/WR/ST Coach NFL Oakland Raiders (06) QB Coach Fresno St. (07) OC/QB Coach Alabama (08-11) OC/QB Coach Colorado St. (12-present) Head Coach Hugh Freeze Born in 1969 (45 for you math challenged) No prior Playing Experience (doesn't really matter) Briarcrest HS (92-94) OC/DB Coach Briarcrest HS (95-04) Head Coach Ole Miss (05-07) TE/RC Coach Lambuth (08-09) Head Coach Arkansas St. (10) OC Arkansas St. (11) Head Coach Ole Miss (12-present) Head Coach If you are simply going to look at the paper, I think there's a clear favorite who has more experience. If you are going to look at development of talent, I think there's a clear favorite.
