    Look what happens to teams that fire coaches, USC, Colorado and WV. Its like the offense has given up.

    No dude, it would make our offense awful and we'd struggle to score and have a high rate of 3 and outs!

    ....wait, I just read that this already happens. Well then, continue with your suggestion.

    He should have been fired the day after the Baylor game. CPR will have no choice after going 1-11 so I'm fine with waiting until after the season. It's a dumpster fire regardless.

    Since we just had Halloween, I've heard that people can set fire to certain bags of material. That doesn't make it smell any better.

    It's not like it could get any worse. I'm not aware of any way we could put up negative points, but I'm sure Mess could find a way.

    At this point there is nothing wrong with keeping him until the end of the season. It's too late to do anything meaningful. There is really no difference between 1 and 5 wins.

    I don't know about that. You really think 1-11=5-7?

    Messingham's ability to shut down an offense should make him a great candidate for DC! :jimlad:

    I would like to give Todd Sturdy a shot.

    Not to mention it would give us a free job audition for either Sturdy or Coach K.

    We need to set our sights higher than Sturdy or Klenakis if we want to have a chance to salvage anything a year or two from now. The entire offensive staff needs to go then hire someone and let them bring in "their" guys.

    At this point I'd give Rosanne Barr a shot.

    Speaking of which, I wouldn't mind having Manny Diaz on staff next year.

    I don't disagree, but Sturdy and K have both led good offenses in the past. I think more of either of them than Mess and I would at least like to see what they could do over the last 3 games.
