    Major Applewhite

    Looks like he is going to be our QB coach. Great Hire if this is the case.

    Re: Major Applewhite

    Interesting. Is this coming from an official media outlet or just rumor?

    Re: Major Applewhite

    Why would Applewhite (even at a small time school, compared to a Big XII school) go from being an OC to just a QB coach... I think I need some reliable source to believe this first, even if he gets to work with a Texas guy...

    Re: Major Applewhite

    I don't think he's the OC at Rice, he's just the QB coach. If I'm correct, then it would be stepping into the same position, in a bigger conference, with more money available to pay the assistants. Doesn't seem like a step down.

    Re: Major Applewhite

    He's both the QB and OC at Rice. Maybe Chizik's going to offer him both positions at ISU?

    We already hired an OC in Mcfarland. I think it is just a chance for him to get some more recognition. You don't hear much about Rice. QB coach for Big 12 school is much better. And now he can stick it to Texas for jobbing him of the starting job his senior year. He was much better than the young Chris Simms was at that point

    Re: Major Applewhite

    This is a very good hire. It will definately help out when we recruit QBs and with the current ones. Major Applewhite could really help BM and AA in reading coverages and picking up blitzes. I already can't wait til FOOTBALL starts up again!

    That is awesome if true. He is one smart guy. I imagine he would also be good for Texas recruiting. He is a favorite of the UT faithful.

    I also saw on this board that RB Coach Smith was also hired. Things really appear to be picking up steam.

    Holy hell...if this is true, Smith was the RB coach at K-State, he coached for 11 years under Snyder.

    Re: Major Applewhite

    Someone stated it's a step back for Applewhite on that thread, and here was a response:

    Double the salary, at least. If that's a step back, sign me up for two steps back!
    lol
