    BCS job openings

    I'm glad we got Chiz last year-this year there are way too many BCS job openings to compete with-GA Tech, Wazu, Arkansas in addition to the high profile jobs.

    I don't recall that much competition

    Re: BCS job openings

    I concur...if not last year by us or someone else (remember, we got a head start on him)...someone would've snagged him this year. A&M would've been a "likely" destination.

    Re: BCS job openings

    Hypothetically, I wonder who we woulda gone after had we been searching this year.

    Like I said in another thread, I'm glad we did what we did when we did it.

    Re: BCS job openings

    Really? Because I remember quite a few BCS schools were looking for a head coach - with tradition rich Alabama and Miami at the top of the list. LINK

    Nah, there was definitely competition last season to fill coaching vacancies. Pollard just did a better job of getting a head start on the competition...while many BCS schools were still deciding what direction to go in, Jamie already had Gene on a plane to Ames.

    Weren't there quite a few BCS coaching destinations last year as well? 'Bama, MSU, Minny, ISU, and maybe more.

    Re: BCS job openings

    perhaps it just seems like there are more this year because we aren't so focused on our own team trying to find a new guy. that really was a crazy time with all of you guys tracking planes and all the other stuff. nice to be able to sit back, relax, and watch the chaos everywhere else for a change.

    Re: BCS job openings

    Yes, there were a number of them last year. I think we forget, because we had our guy locked up rather early.

    I'm sure McCarney will have multiple offers this year....JUST KIDDING!!



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    Re: BCS job openings

    I think we really didn't compete with most of the schools last year. Miami had there inside guy they wanted and we would have never gone after, Bama wanted a bigger fish with expierence then Chizik was. Minny and MSU might have been the biggest schools for Chizik last year but Minny wasn't looking till end of December, and I don't recall on MSU. Either way it would have been tough this year.

    Re: BCS job openings

    If Chizik hadn't been hired this year, he'd be on a lot of wish lists, and would have probably been heavily pursued by SMU and Baylor. Arkansas would probably have been after him too.

    Last year, I know a lot of 'Bama fans really wanted Chizik until we snatched him up, so you can't really say that they wanted a coach with a bigger name.

    Woah, Houston Nutt is going from Arkansas to Ole Miss. Not only is he staying within the SEC, but he's even staying in the SEC West Division. That's crazy.

    Yeah, that is definitely whacky.

    If that trend carries to the Big 12, Franchione will end up at Baylor...
