        I've found myself becoming Bob-curious too. Saw a rumor somewhere that LSU might also be in on Stoops... I didn't like the sound of that. He's proven he can build an organization. And his interview after the USC job opened sounded like he was ready to coach again.

        We've heard that before...But he is a Midwest Boy. Some Big 10 Gig will open up soon.

        Sure, but not this year. It said he's returning to Cincy, didn't say he was staying at Cincy for eternity.

        I wouldn't expect anything until Sunday at the earliest. The deal will allow Napier to coach his championship game, of course.

          If Fickell is truly staying put, that means Aranda (left coast guy) is prolly going to USC and corndog gets stuck with the fat Stoops or O'Brien.

            I agree with your last two points, but first point of him being a good preparation and game day coach is incorrect...our special teams simply blew all four years. To me, as a CEO and head coach, you should have all 3 facets of your team prepared, just like Urban did. Dan The Can clearly didn't GAF about special teams (outside McPherson and Townsend). Even Spur Dog stressed special teams.

            In the end, I think Mullen's ego simply got in his own way and it's why he has/had a ceiling. Details. Details. Details. Hence why the most anal retentive coaches (Saban, Belichick, etc.) are focused on attention to details.

                My question is this, and it's curiosity what others think...was Trask better than we all thought and he simply needed opportunity to show it or was Trask a byproduct of Mullen and his ability to development and adapt his O to Trask? Because he wasn't able to develop Franks (his biggest issue was in between the ears) so was Mullen clearly responsible for Trask or was Trask responsible for Trask?

                Trask
                The only damn way Trask got on the field was Giraffes broken ankle. You know that.

                        Running Gator was the best poster this board has had for years, Can't believe you banned him.

                            Was he banned, really? Because it's total BS if so.

                              Vulgarity and personal insults are just fine, though.
