    This would at least be more likely than Mac taking over USF.

    I don't think Mac will ever be a head coach at another BCS school.

    Mac will get his chance and he will make the most of it. This is a good move by Skip Holtz.

    That was probably a good hire for them. Better than Mac would have been, honestly.

    Re: Mac not in at SF...Skip Holtz is...

    This seems to be more of a lateral move than upward for Holtz.

    crossing my fingers for Mike Leach to ECU. Leach coaching a team actually called the Pirates would be great! Just have to crank the eccentricity up a notch Mike!

    Maybe but at least S Florida is in a power 6 conference.

    Wrong. This gets him into a BCS conference.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    Not sure about that. USF may not be a big time school, but there is a lot of potential. They are smack dab in the hotbed of Florida talent. They play in a Pro football stadium that is pretty impressive. They are in a BCS conference which automatically means more money for the program and that conference is the Big East so they have that much better of a chance to get into a BCS bowl.

    Compare that to ECU, which is a smaller school, who plays in Conference USA. Holtz would not have been able to bring in enough talent to ECU to take them any further than he already had.

    There is a lot more potential for success at USF.

    Re: Mac not in at SF...Skip Holtz is...

    I think DMac would have been a great fit at South Florida; unfortunately, I think his over all record at Iowa State of 56-85 will always follow him around. Building the Iowa State program the first five years he went 13-42; however, during his last seven years he went 43-43 and went to 5 bowl games. DMac is a great coach!

    Re: Mac not in at SF...Skip Holtz is...

    Sure a BCS conf...but one in a duel with the ACC for the weakest, and at a weaker school in that conference. Skip has build a decent resume....I think he could have moved up the food chain a little higher when he decided to move.

    Initially, thats what I thought. I think prestige as a team wise, laterally yes. USF is less than 15 years old as a program but is most certainly on the upswing. He most definitely moved UP in conference, I'm sure in pay, and IMO in talent as well. That young QB they had could end up being something real special. I just cant wait to hear what Dr. Lou has to say!
