According to reports LSU has all but finalized a deal with Lincoln Riley meanwhile we're busy low balling sling blade. Sounds about right.

If I hear one more person say we should give Mark Stoops a look I'm going to lose it. The guy resembles a 45k per year union rep that sweats in 30 degree weather and at his best looks like he slept in his clothes on the couch after tying one one. It's not even a pass for me. If we hired him, I would seriously consider disconnecting from the sport all together.

But it has everything to do with his history. His offense is 58% rushing! You all thought Mullen’s offense was terrible? Wait until you see his.
he was fired from Clemson because his offense sucked. He then left Bama to go be the OC for who? BUTTERS!
He then was OC for a head coach for one year before that coach was fired. Went back to Bama and then went to Louisiana.
He’s never been a P5 head coach. He’s never been a successful OC.
Everybody talks about his time with Saban. He was just an analyst and a WR coach. I guess maybe he was a good recruiter for Saban? But who isn’t? That program is a machine.
So how do people know how good of a recruiter he is?
It’s like we’re in the land of crazy.

If Bob Stoops has any itch or inclination to get back into the game, then IMO this is his tailor made opportunity. He has instant credibility with the fanbase. He's 60, not 100 like some people think. His good buddy Spurrier is in place and would give him his endorsement. Frankly the stars couldn't align better for him, IF he actually wants to. Yeah the cupboard is bare right now but he can fix that. I'd vote for it.
“I just have to believe that this is not something that going to last very long in terms of a coaching search,” Finebaum closed with, explaining that he believes Florida has a replacement plan already. “This is not going to be LSU going on for two months.”
“This is just my theory and Steve [Spurrier] can shoot it down tomorrow. He’s welcome to. I think Spurrier was involved in this,” Finebaum said about Mullen’s firing on The ESPN College Football Podcast. “Scott Stricklin lives across the street from Steve Spurrier. Spurrier hangs out with Stricklin in the [press] box all the time, they’re close.
“The Spurrier wing of the party had had enough of Dan Mullen. They didn’t like his attitude, they didn’t like his quirkiness. They didn’t like the way he berated assistant coaches in front of others. And it rubbed them the wrong way. That much I can tell you. I’m not saying Steve Spurrier pulled the trigger but I sincerely doubt this decision was made without Steve Spurrier’s blessing
