Liberty's only loss was at Wake by 1 simply due to them going for 2 and the win with a minute left in the game and not converting. They are legit.
They have only played 3 Power5 teams so far. They got beat by Wake Forest, they beat Arkansas and BYU. BYU is nothing to brag about. So IMO, Arkansas is the only reasonably tough opponent they have faced. Not sure I would call them legit.

They’ve done pretty well after losing Willis to the NFL.

Hugh will land a job somewhere bigger soon.

I took Liberty on a successful 3 team parlay this past weekend. Should have bet the money line.

Billy said they were a great team. This guy may end up on our staff, If that ends up being the case, I hope he's at least a good position coach.
He was a really good recruiter and receivers coach. He'd a good one to add as an analyst then plug him in if colbert gets a better job.

The way your boys’ secondary is playing, if I were Bam-muh, I wouldn’t want any part of them

HUGH Freeze is who I wanted as our head coach in 2014, 2017, and 2021. The guy would turn a program like Florida into a dynasty. Elite recruiter and head coach.

Billy was a great hire though.

Cadillac is going to muddy the waters here. And Auburn, in true Auburn fashion, is going to allow a mess to be created. He’s done an admirable job in creating some positivity, as should’ve been expected. But I don’t think he’s viewing this audition in the same way that the upper brass are. There’s zero chance he actually gets the job, imo, but the players are gravitating to him and will likely demand he gets serious consideration. When they hire someone else, they will have a locker room of guys who will now have wanted to play for two different coaches, neither of whom they’ll be playing for. If they don’t crush the hire, they’ll be an even bigger disaster than I imagined.

And yes, Freeze just showed why he wasn’t ever my choice. Really good head coach that will win 9-10 games, but never a championship. We already had something similar.

I am sure that Jimmy Rane has made it obvious to the morons at the Barn that at worst he would like to hire a real Cadillac , not one in name only. However Jimmy is clearly aimimg for a Ferrari or better.

Reminds me a lot of the Odell Haggins situation when Taggelwain was fired from the SOW.

Auburn wants to land a guy in Kiffin who doesn't believe in recruiting? I doubt it.
