Your perception of the quality of potential candidates
Since the word on the coaching trail has slowed today, and since I've been spending so much time this week reading everyone's opinions and rumors, I'm curious as to what everyone things about the quality of the candidates that are in the running this year as opposed to two years ago.
IMO, two years ago we were talking mainly about hot coordinators, trying to start a future with a budding coach. This year we have a lot of names floating out there that (seemingly) have some tread that are a lot more exciting to me than what we had the last go around, and having someone who is experienced in coaching at some degree. I think a lot of it also has to do with being the only BCS school currently looking for a coach, and in my perception this is a good thing. There are a lot of coaches that I would support, and a few lackluster names, but overall I think things feel better (or I am overly optimistic).

All I know is I'm impressed how quiet JP keeps this. 5 days in and nobody really has any idea who are coach is going to be. Why is that a big deal, you ask? Ask K-State. I'm not saying we're going to get Patterson, because I don't think we will, but you just HAVE to keep a lid on this stuff until everything is agreed upon...especially when a bowl team is involved.
I trust Pollard and refuse to analyze potential hires (unless it's Farley) until it actually happens. There is no point.
