This could be the right move at the right time to keep our superior recruiting up to par! There was Don Clark before John McKay, there was Larry Smith before John Robinson, there was Paul Hackett before Pete Carroll. There was Lane Kiffin before…<quoted text>
I would love to see Petersen, too. But I don't think he has the balls.
He loves being the big fish in a little pond. 8-9 wins every year at Boise State is good enough for them. Coming to a program that expects 10 wins every year may be too much.
That's not a knock on him. He's a great guy and even better coach. The expectations we have are just too high for some. It takes nerves of steel that not everyone possesses.
Think I have to agree on Sumlin, Fitzgerald and Franklin. Would love Fish, but that's not going to happen.
But unlike you, I would love to see JDR in the mix. I think he'd be a Pete Carroll/SEC type of guy who knows that the best offense, is a great defense!
No matter who comes in, they HAVE TO keep EO. He may not be a great head coach, but there are few guys who can recruit the way he does!!
