    Applewhite Says No

    According to Rice's website, Major Applewhite denied being considered for a job at ISU.

    Link to Rice's athletics site


    Green hills for thy throne, and for crown a golden melody/Ringing in the hearts of all who bring thee love and loyalty/Dear Alma Mater, make our spirits great
    True and valiant like the bells of I-O-WA STATE!

    And thank you Stumpy for this:

    Re: Applewhite Says No

    All this really tells me is that he hasn't been contacted yet. I'm sure a large payraise and a chance to coach in the Big 12 would be tough to turn down for a young coach. Just sayin'.

    Re: Applewhite Says No

    Chizik originally told the media he wasn't interested in the ISU job as well.

    Supposedly that's what he said.

    Yet do we have any sort of article to back that up?

    Re: Applewhite Says No

    I would say that any potential candidates aren't "out of the running" until one is officially hired.

    Unfortunately, I don't recall for certain where I saw the quote at, but he was quoted a good week and a half or so before he was hired. I remember it specifically, because it forced me to cross him off the wish list I had in my head.

    I'll do some looking around to see if I can find the article.

    Re: Applewhite Says No

    I remember hearing/reading rumors that he wasn't interested - yet nothing in an article with him quoted, etc.

    Re: Applewhite Says No

    My question is what staff position would he be offered and is that an upgrade from being the OC at Rice............at Rice he get's to cut his teeth in running the offense.....at ISU he takes a step backward and work under someone.....I'm not sure he would look at that as a step up

    That is definitely a good question.

    Would being the quarterbacks coach at a BCS program be the same/worse/better than OC at a program like Rice?

    Today's word in Austin radio is that Greg Davis is a possible candidate for U of Alabama - mentioned that Mack has a brother or some kind of family connection or something in that pipeline which helps..... That opens up the Texas QB Coach job MAJORLY....hmmmm, just another conspirecy theory!

    Re: Applewhite Says No

    Why would he be a "hot prospect" anyway? Young and experienced and only name recognition. ok, I'll agree some short term name recognition in TX.

    A buddy of mine is a bama grad (and f***in crazy about crimson tide football like every other bama grad) and what I'm hearing from him is that Rodriguez from WVU is likely the top choice since Spurrier signed the extension w/ SC, but apparently there's a big stink about Stoops (yes, the Bob Stoops from OU) being a candidate as well. Anyway, he keeps his ear pretty close to the ground when it comes to bama football, and he hasn't said anything about Davis. I'm not saying it couldn't happen, but I really don't think Davis is going to Bama, so I doubt Major would be headin to UT. Just my 2 cents...
