Board's thoughts on spavital and phil longo
Put this on the coaching board but it'll get more hits over here since it's SEC related. Sounds like Tx State is down to those two and Briles. I always thought Spav was a terrible coach but good recruiter? Longo any good?

I'd assume Spav has learned some things since he was at A&M. It didn't help that he was stuck with two whiny arse QBs who both wanted to transfer when they weren't starting as fricking true freshman. Regardless, I think he can get a better job than Texas State with the year he has had at WVU.

Texas State boards seem to think it's going to be Briles but are hopeful there is enough pushback to stop it. There is a rumor that Art would be part of the deal and would come in a "consulting" role.

I think Spavital would probably be good for LSU in terms of modernizing things on offense. As Aggies said, I never thought he was much as a play caller, but just the general system and all that would be an upgrade.

I think Longo is going to crash and burn when his receivers leave next year. That offense is just dumb.

I really hope someone makes Longo their problem. His gimmicky offense doesn't work against any decent defense. His philosophy are deep balls and for WRs to run to an empty spot. Once you get inside the 20, the offense doesn't work.

Longo's offense is all about match-ups. If his guys are better than your guys, he will kill you. If your guys are better than his, he will get killed.

He was that way before Ole Miss. Look at what happened to his offense when they hit a good NDSU or James Madison.

Isn't Spavital a disease of the uterus.

Spav got an OC job at a major university way too early in his career as Sumlin tried to fill the gap at OC that KK left after bolting to be HC at tech (another too soon scenario). I think Spav was still in his mid-upper twenties through the A&M years with only a few years experience as an actual college ball coach.

He is a smart guy though and will likely improve a great deal over time so I wouldn't peg him as a 'terrible coach' for an extended period of time without checking back every now and again.

Well, looks like we're hiring Spav. This sucks.
