Are you saying that there was nobody else we could have hired? If so, that's completely inaccurate. If that's not what you meant, then my bad.

Yes I’m saying that we got abandoned or left at the altar or any other way of putting it. We were talking to Taggart, Dorean, and Colorado’s old coach name is escaping me momentarily but they all were waiting on the ncaa. They stopped answering our calls. Bjork spun it as a players/grass roots calling for Luke as coach or we faced a mass exodus of talent. The only for sure leaving if Luke wasn’t coach was AJ.

Bill Clark would have crawled on his hands and knees to Oxford for the job (making a detour to take a dump on the 50 yard line at Bryant Denny), especially considering he's only making half of what we're paying Luke.

Yeah I love those 70 point games against the likes of Murray state.

Yes last year counts. He was coaching for the job. It may have hurt recruiting but he was clearly incompetent then and is still so now.

Are you one of those that sees shiny I rankings and think “This s awesome!”

Man I can’t wait to see if we score more than 20 combined points against State, LSU and Bama.

How’s that redzone o? Gotta love that efficiency. Man we kick a lot of field goals! Points!

Yes, you are defending Luke.

No he wouldn’t have or he would be our coach. He is infinitely more talented and capable than Luke as a head coach but he’s not blind or stupid.

Yeah because the time to replace the DC was last year when Luke was still “interim” but per the usual we wait until it’s too late


ETA: McIntyre was who I was trying to think of earlier

I wish I knew the truth behind this. There are many who claim (including journalists) that the job was Doeren's and that he was interested even after the COI conclusion; however local boosters pressured Bjork or Vitter into hiring Luke.

However, it would make sense that Bjork would hire Luke because there literally wasn't anyone else interested. The question is, were there in-fact others who weren't quite as splashy hires (e.g., Bill Clark) that were interested and the "No one was interested." narrative was an easy out?

I don't see why Bjork would chain himself to such a high risk/low reward hire in Luke, otherwise.

You're way wrong on that. He wanted the job - but no way was anyone but Luke gonna get it.

re: Ole Miss....Reeecccruittingg??
From what I was told by two different people(one of which is one of those journalists you mentioned) there was nobody left besides him after the COI. Only recently have I seen the Bjork was forced by Vitter to hire Luke story. I can’t speak on Ross’ true motivations obviously so I assume based on how he handled previous issues that my initial information is still correct.

As for the last part of your post I think Bjork’s fate was tied to the resolution of the sanctions and I think Luke represents that for him so he’s cya more than hitching himself to any one coach.

Okay but I’m not way wrong though. I acknowledge I could be partially wrong as always but Clark didn’t return our calls after the ncaa announcement. Believe me or don’t but I have no reason to lie to you.

That's cool if that is what you were told. I was told something entirely different in that Bjork's people wouldn't return any calls. And that's coming from Clark's side. :)

Okay that means either Bjork is lying again or Clark was mislead. So we agree Ross has to go.

Of course Ross has to go. We do all agree on that.

I have a hard time thinking that NOBODY was interested considering that we were paying Freeze over $4.5 million per year, had no buyout to fund, and had some talent to work with. The NCAA mess would give a new guy some tempered expectations from the fan base. It sounds like a win all around for me.

I would go work for a jerk like Bjork for $3 million a year, especially if I am at UAB making peanuts.

I believe he panicked and settled more than he was forced to make the hire. Vitter didn’t have that type of pull even though he was an influence.

This is probably the truth. I think Vitter has to remind himself to breathe.

It’s almost enough to make me believe the conspiracy that our university has been taken over by hostile SJW’s with how much they screw fans

So we piled up yards on the school of the blind. Yay.

Again, how was that red zone efficiency? How did we play in conference? Did we blow multiple games we had no right to lose? How was that defense?

I’m glad he managed to finish tenth with the likes of Brown, Metcalf, Lodge, Knox, Little and Ta’amu. Five of those six go in the top three rounds come draft time. If you’re incapable of doing the math that’s almost half the offense that will be drafted in the top three rounds and fricknuts couldn’t figure out how to get them in the end zone. Think next time before you open your cockholster.

You are bringing up a bunch of irrelevant points to save face. You said he couldn't coach the offense out of a wet paper bag yet the team finished 10th in the nation. It's a insanely stupid thing to say.

One could very easily say the offense wasn't efficient. One could also say the red zone offense was trash. But once again saying the coach of the 10th offense in the nation in total offense can't coach the team out a wet bag is stupid.

And five of those six won't go in the top 3 rounds.

So Luke is a better Coach according to you and Freeze would have lost more games than Luke. Good to know your position.
