    Just out of curiousity....

    And this is definitely "water under the bridge" so to speak, but why all the hatred for Mike Stoops on this site?

    He would not have been my first choice as our next head coach either, but it seems like a good majority of you would kick him in the 'nads on sight and then spit on him when he's down.

    Again, I know it really doesn't matter anymore, but I am curious about why so many just can't seem to stand the man.

    Could be because most clips that you see of him are of him with veins popping out of his head screaming his *** off. Makes him seem like he might be a bit of a ****.

    He's coached in the weak Pac 10 (minus USC) and hasn't done jack until this season. His recruiting has been nothing special, especially for Arizona. Keeler had it right calling him the reverse Steve Alford for Iowa State.

    Why would he want to leave AZ now when he seems to have the program back on track?

    I was neutral on him, but really did not want another former Hawk running things.

    He comes across as a tremendous dick.

    He's loosely part of the Hayden Fry "tree", and there is nothing more irritating than hearing about that all the freaking time.

    I have also been having this same question about the hatred for Stoops. If it is because he is a previous Hawk, so what! So was Mac and nobody seems to say anything about that now do they?

    I think a Stoops HC with Long OC would have been a good combo but I am all for Rhoads!

    No hatred here and I was as big of Mac supporter as anybody.

    However if you've got a choice between two good coaches with or without that pedigree, I take the guy without.

    I've heard too many condencending comments from their fans and even ours that it takes a Hawk to win, and have no time for it. Why even mess with that line of thinking if you don't have to?

    Re: Just out of curiousity....

    It looked to me like a bit of a questionable hire. Seemed he was mediocre in a easier conference. That would not translate to alot of success here. Would he have been the worst hire from the list? No. Were there much better hires on the list? Yes. And we got one as far as I'm concerned.

    I don't personally have that much against him, but I think those are the two big problems ISU fans have with him.

    I don't think a Stoops/Long combo would have been too popular with the majority of the fanbase unless they did some serious winning here.

    Maybe his brother being in the leagues was a downer. When we played Oklahoma, it would always be brotherly spat and would Bobby run it up on us.
