    I'd take FSU over USC.

    Don't know why Kelly would take a step down unless it's an insane salary offer.

    Anyone who would take FSU has never been to Tallahassee.

    Urban told me he was done coaching and I totally believed him.

    Since when can FSU afford either of these guys - isn't money one of the reasons they lost Jimbo?

    Seems like FSU is a bigger rebuild to me, personally, I'd like to see Urban at USC. West coast football is bad right now, they need a powerhouse back out there.

    I honestly don't think FSU can get a name like this anymore though. I think they'll get someone good but Meyer is a HOF coach and I can't see him going anywhere that doesn't look like a contender within a couple of years. I think FSU is a longer type of deal than he'd be in to.

    It sure as hell isn't Gainesville! Or even Miami for that matter. USC will always be THE JOB out West.

    Pretty crazy how far FSU and Miami have fallen. That was THE game in the 90's

    I hope Kelly stays at ND for a long time yet.

    ND terrifies me -- even more than Ohio State and Michigan -- as the one to come for Campbell. He just screams what they would be looking for in their next coach.

    I believe A&M essentially offered him unlimited resources which is why he left.

    It blows my mind that FSU doesn't have more money.

    Pretty sure Jimbo said their facilities are basically garbage too. Then they announced a big complex as soon as he bolted.

    OSU May be Coaches dream job, however ND is top of the podium. But what assistants can handle it.

    They just can't compete with the SEC schools financially in that region no matter how much they win.

    I can't imagine why Kelly would leave ND, maybe for an NFL job someday but not another college job

    That's a good chunk of it, but where's there donor base? Clemson has managed just fine with the ACC's payouts, but they have some of the most hardcore fans around.

    They are eyeing them? 10 years ago when I was single I was eyeing Megan Fox and Mila Kunis. Didn't work out.
