    Just a Thought

    I don't know if this has been talked about or just brought up but I have been thinking there had to have been something in place for at least a little while for things to have worked out like this. It took 1 day to hire a new coach, I just have a feeling that something was already in the works. Maybe not, it's just a thought that I am wondering if anyolne else has had the same thought.

    i dont think so, last time there was a vacancy, FH contacted Jamie and said he wanted the job, but Jamie said it wasn't the right time. Pollard called Fred first this time and Fred accepted, it was quick, but I don't think it was planned before Greg left

    Interesting, That sounds like a good enough reason for me. Thanks,

    What Fred and Paul both did in working to get themselves in the position to get the job they wanted should be noted by all the students and young grads out there.

    It is how you make your own luck!

    I was impressed with Fred when he was younger and I was impressed today watching him handle the press conference. I think we will be fine in the long term.
