    Watching other hires now.

    Ah yes, now we can all sit back and watch all the other hires. So far MSU has picked up Deantonio(sp?) from Cincy.

    I don't predict too many better hires than what we got. Pelini going somewhere would be about equal in my mind. But I think we got dibs on the best guy.

    Re: Watching other hires now.

    How about Harbaugh or Norvell for offensive coordinator?

    He's got the cash to go after some good names. I just hope he brings in someone to send Meyer and Blythe out on a high note. Those two (and others) deserve a good year next year.

    Agree and disagree.

    Don't get me wrong, I think we have an awesome hire, but in the grand scheme of things I would bet Bama and the U hire a couple of solid (proven) coaches. Butch Davis was an excellent pick up for UNC. I am more excited about Chizik than Dantonio, but he has the Head Coaching experience. I'm sure we will do better than ASU and NC State, unless the Wolfpack get Cowhler.

    Re: Watching other hires now.

    Very true....those two schools have some major cash ready to fire off. I do think we got a guy that would have been on their short lists.

    No one has fast trigger JP. Those guys will still be working thru XMAS to find a solution.

    Re: Watching other hires now.

    I think Chizik would be in the top three of coaching prospects, barring the big steal by Miami or Alabama. I could see Chizik being announced at a place like that, which is good enough for me. Butch Davis was a good hire too.
