    Here's the thing. He is what he is. If we wanted 9 wins a year , we could have kept butters. Sure , there doesn't appear to be a "definitive " upgrade on the market but at some point we need to keep swinging.

    If Mullen was actually trying to win, I'd be on board. If he was making staff changes and recruiting as hard as the other guys, I'd feel good about giving him a few years. Heck, I'd be excited about next year if Grantham woulda got shcit canned.The problem is he has this "I have arrived " attitude and the shine of anything good he's done is really wearing off.

      Yeah, we’re not really saying different things. The one area I disagree with you in is I think he’s light years better than McElwain. Frauds are frauds and 2020 should’ve been Mullen’s 2017 or 2013. It wasn’t. Whether or not he’s the guy is a different argument, and one of which I’m open to discussion. But JM wasn’t going to put up 9-10 win seasons consistently. Every win felt like a loss and only wasn’t by the slimmest of margins. There’s a reason he sat on the market for 2 months and took a position coach job.

      But again, I’m ok with the idea of rolling the dice again in a year or two if this persists. And when/if he’s let go at that time, it will be largely because of his personnel choices and stubbornness. No disagreement there.

        he's already dictated what the future will be in a year or two with his piss poor recruiting.

        Ok then it’s settled. After two more seasons of 9-10 wins, maybe we’ll have finally taken a step forward in facilities and maybe get a real change in guard at the top who will land the next great coach. There are worse 5 year periods. I’ve lived through several.

          If we suck next year, it needs to end. I don't wanna see a year of a lame duck coach. This year was the year to revamp. Not at the end of next season year like we all know is gonna happen. I will admit that how disgusted I am Grantham being on board probably clouds my judgment. Another year of that assshole is unforgivable.

              Yep, the “Grantham thing” should piss everyone off. That a-hole should’ve been drop-kicked off Century Tower a long time ago.

                    Spoiled brat like someone that would complain about tamu being bullies and making too much noise? Didn't appreciate what they had like someone that clearly gets on his knees for the NFL and doesn't try hard in a job many would kill for? We agree that the person that fits this anaology should be flushed away in place of the 6 mil that we're currently flushing.

                      It's is my dawg, but in this we completely disagree. Mullen sucks like a black hole and his behavior and lack of commitment to this program are unbecoming and a joke compared to what he's being paid.

                      I could tolerate it a bit if he was honest and a bit self reflective of his shortcomings and mistakes but he's not. Instead he's defiant, deflective and snarky when (rarely) pressed. All while preaching about "relentless effort." That mantra is a joke and we all know it.

                        Exactly. He acts offended if anyone ever asks a tough question. He is getting paid millions a year and the reason you get paid that much is because the job is stressful and you are going to have to answer tough questions at times. It is infuriating to me to watch someone act the way he does when he is under pressure.

                                Pierce does seem to slam into the wall of tacklers, not seeing the slight daylight to the left or right?
                                I think Malik Davis &/or N'aquan Wright have better vision with a bit more slither-through. Could be exciting to observe.
                                Hope Mullen chooses the ball carrier based on his YPC and not seniority or # of past carries =a kind of seniority.
