    Would be fine with a Petrino hire. He will win them some games, maybe even against us, but he leaves every program worse than he found it. That would be good with me.

    Too bad Chizik had to go. I was enjoying his stay there more and more. Petrino would fit in perfectly there. A match made in hell for both of them.
    I know what it takes to win. If I can sell them on what it takes to win, then we are not going to lose too many football games. - Coach Paul Bryant and I can see Coach Nick Saban agreeing completely.

    What did Chizik say to Coach Saban after the game yesterday? Was it, "Coach do you need a Defensive Coordinator? I hear you may be losing your's real soon. I could be the highest paid DC you've ever had and Bama doesn't have to pay me that much since the Barn will be contributing to the salary fund!"

    I wonder if they were mistaken and meant USF. Since most think Holtz will be out.

    If Chiz said this, Coach Saban assuredly ignored him.

    you're au friend sounds smart.

    No seriously that's one of the dumbest moves i've ever heard of. If they like Rico so much, hire him as your their coach. Otherwise why hamstring your new coach with a bad staff?

    On the bright side, the collector's value of Gene's book should spike

    Yea that would be crazy, but of course look who we are talking about as well. No coach worth anything would agree to this mess. The barners better hope they hire a coach that doesn't take any mess but we all know they would never happen. They want a "yes" guy and before it's over they'll have to hire a coordinator, Gus, or Petrino after every other coach turns them down. Either way it's a good thing for us!!

    All the HC talk is meaningless unless JJ oh excuse me Pat Dye is forced out.

    They have Always had Left Overs for Any new coach to deal with. HC at API is just a figure head, we all know who rus the program from the outside for the last 20 years. So, don't dismiss it when someone says they heard so & so will stay. Logical thinking at API?

    Unless these folks are shown the door then nothing will ever change at API. I for one hope they don't fire JJ & dismiss Dye. They are really good for API football.
