42-0 Ohio St over MSU with 7 mins left in the 2nd Q??  LOL

Sparty had a couple of wins early this year where they were outgained and had more turnovers.  Regression can be painful when it comes

OSU is really good right now.   MSU has scraped out some lucky wins.   I expected a convincing Buckeye win.  So did Vegas.  This is ugly.

Gotta give Tucker another $100 million or so. Would hate to let him get away!!

Exactly what I was thinking.  Maybe a bit too quick on that contract?

Nah.  9 wins already.  Beat Michigan.  Instilling a culture the university wants.  Still smarting from Saban leaving all of those years ago.   Decided he was the guy and wanted to make sure he didn't get poached.

If MU extended Shaka right now, would you complain?

I think I just saw a few Ohio State boosters give $20M to extend Tucker’s new contract by a coupla more years!

Tucker is now the highest paid coach in the B10.  Good for him, but that's going to prove to be a bad contract.

I think the truth on Sark is that he is a decent coach and very good offensive mind.  As Wags says though, I think Texas is a little too much for him and he is going to be run out of there eventually.  And yeah I think the Texas job is almost impossible.  Objectively, only two coaches have won there since Royal left, Fred Akers and Mack Brown, and both of them slid the program into mediocrity.  But that doesn't reflect the expectations of the donor base.

Texas football isn't as big a deal to many recruits in Texas as people think it is.  A lot of the players and their families in Texas have no natural allegiance to UT, and are just as likely to be interested in Oklahoma, A&M, LSU or Alabama.
I would not characterize Mac Browns tenure as sliding the program into mediocrity. He had 12 very good to great seasons including a National Championship . Yes his last 4 seasons were not nearly as good. However that kind of mediocre string is not unusual after a long string of greatness. Bear Bryant , Joe Paterno , Woody Hayes all had streaks of several mediocre years .

Brown has gone to UNC and revived that program . So he still has coaching bonafides .

I think the real issue as you point out is the UT fan base is unrealistic in their expectations . Reality is they have been eclipsed by their rival Oklahoma and others in their league have equaled them .

So he didn't slide the program into mediocrity...he just had a "mediocre string."

They will meet next week with each having 5-6 records.

Yes . That would be more accurate . Also mediocre in his case was 8 and 9 win seasons. A coach can rebound from that and take a program back up.

 Texas boosters made the same mistake Nebraska did when they pushed out Frank Solich. Pushed out a good coach because of unrealistic expectations .

Bryce Young breaks 52 year old Alabama passing record .

https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/32675922/alabama-bryce-young-breaks-school-single-game-passing-record

I actually remember watching Scott Hunter on TV set the old passing record in 1969. At that time that was an incredible amount of yards .

Florida is having a bad year, so they fired their head coach who had two top ten finishes in his first three seasons.

Recruiting has been bad but he has a history of being a good coach.  A Midwest guy originally.  Think he’ll be a popular interview after a year on pregame shows

East Coast guy other than a couple years with Urban Meyer.  Went to HS in NH and spent other significant time in PA.

But otherwise I agree.  He's been a successful coach pretty consistently.  He'll get another gig soon.

Hurt had worked at the Tuscaloosa News since 1982. Complications from pneumonia.

He was a fun follow on Twitter.  Pretty much the complete antithesis of most college beat writers.  Poked fun at other programs without the self-righteousness of many and was honest about the school and league he covered.  Based on outpourings, he was a good man and well-liked.  62 is much too young

All the talk of the Bears front office failures made me think of one of my personal most despised Bears hires, John Shoop, the hapless OC under Dick Jauron.  After the Bears tossed him, he bounced around a bit and ended up at UNC as their OC.

Seeing if he was still in coaching, I found this article...
https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2021/sep/03/john-shoop-north-carolina-purdue-college-football-coach

Its hilarious cause he's painting himself as some black-listed martyr being ahead of the curve with NLI.  Which might make sense except he was a TERRIBLE NFL OC who never had an offense outside of the bottom 5 in the league.  And then, in college, his offense at UNC never registered in the top 40, barely top 50 his 2 best seasons even with NFL talent at the skill positions.  Then he moved on to Purdue where he had 3 consecutive seasons of offenses outside of the top 100.  You're out of a job coaching college football cause you were terrible at it, not cause you were in favor of NLI you clown.
