    Firing Messingham mid season would light a spark on this team

    Look what happens to teams that fire coaches, USC, Colorado and WV. Its like the offense has given up.

    Re: Firing Messingham mid season would light a spark on this team

    No dude, it would make our offense awful and we'd struggle to score and have a high rate of 3 and outs!

    ....wait, I just read that this already happens. Well then, continue with your suggestion.


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    He should have been fired the day after the Baylor game. CPR will have no choice after going 1-11 so I'm fine with waiting until after the season. It's a dumpster fire regardless.

    Re: Firing Messingham mid season would light a spark on this team

    Since we just had Halloween, I've heard that people can set fire to certain bags of material. That doesn't make it smell any better.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    It's not like it could get any worse. I'm not aware of any way we could put up negative points, but I'm sure Mess could find a way.

    At this point there is nothing wrong with keeping him until the end of the season. It's too late to do anything meaningful. There is really no difference between 1 and 5 wins.

    I don't know about that. You really think 1-11=5-7?

    Messingham's ability to shut down an offense should make him a great candidate for DC!

    I would like to give Todd Sturdy a shot.

    Not to mention it would give us a free job audition for either Sturdy or Coach K.
