    We already had Herman eff the Pin Stripe Bowl up because "he wasnt focused". Messingham might be slow but he has to realize that he is out, what incentive does he have to give a #@$% now?
    The next job. If he outright tanked the rest of his time here, word gets out in the coaching community (potentially) that he's not really all in with the teams he coaches, and that probably doesn't help his case to be employed anywhere.

    I don't see a single thing in that article other than obvious things that are repeatedly discussed or really obvious things that would be a surprise to no one. "We think Pat Haden is likely doing due diligence on several candidates and will move quickly once the season ends to fill the position." That is some kind of insight.

    Meh, I believe that if for some reason that CPR was adimant on sticking with coach XYZ and JP knew that if this were to happen ticket sales would drop from sellout numbers back to 40-45k then I have no doubt that JP would step in.

    Because he might want a job somewhere else? His effort level isn't something I'd be worried about.

    True. Not sure he's gonna get a look at anything but position coach level anyway but I see your point. Not going to "go the extra mile" though.

    Improving his ability to find a job after he is fired here?

    No way it's something higher than position coach. That ship has sailed.

    In terms of the "extra mile," maybe we're better off if he doesn't. Maybe not, but maybe.

    Re: Take this for what it's worth but...

    Honestly isn't what they said about ISU pretty obvious? I mean, if there aren't changes in some positions after this debacle of a season there needs to be a full fledged revolt.


    Yeah TOAST!!!

    Re: Take this for what it's worth but...

    Mess promoted to No Texas HC by Peter's Principle next year to replace Danny Mac who then comes as DC to replace retiring Wally and Shane becomes our unencumbered and well respected OC?


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    This move will happen sooner than people think.

    So now we're questioning Messingham's professionalism, character and commitment. Lovely display.

    This site is pretty credible, a very interesting one liner.

    I agree Jamie might give him an action plan but I think CPR is still going to hire who he wants. I don't think Jamie would pull a Jerry Jones and hire his whole staff for him is kinda what I meant there.
