They want to be in the MAC so bad


Luck. That's what that is. Campbell has to leave after the season, right?

I think Campbell would be smart to stay at ISU.

Why? There are probably 4-6 SEC jobs up for grabs. Most of those will pay more than ISU. Most of those are better places to be than Ames. Most of those would probably offer him the job.

I think he'd be wise to stay.  Having a steady multi-million dollar job where people worship you if you win 6 games is a pretty sweet gig.  That said, I'd understand if someone his age was a bit more ambitious than that.

even SEC coaches don't want SEC expectations.  dude would be out of a job in 2 years.  i'm not suggesting he stay in that shitfest of a town, Ames, though.  good grief :lol:

I mean that makes sense to me, but I think most coaches believe they can be the best and want to prove themselves on the biggest stages

Big Ten/Pac 12/ACC are all much better landing zones for an up and coach to manage expectations.

I mean look at how long you can stay put with mediocre results at some of those places. SEC is the worst and Big 12 is probably 2nd for shortest leash for a coach.

I was going to argue he could make as much in the SEC in two years as he could in 5 at ISU. But then I looked up his salary, and he could actually make around 3 mill this year there. Think he should stay at ISU and if he's good enough he'll have his choice of where he sees his best fit over the next few years.

He won't get the leash that Proud Paul did. He was a perfect storm of leash extending. He was from the Des Moines area, that Nebraska win, and the fact that he validated their referee conspiracy theories made them feel like he was one of them.

and UTenn is the toughest with the worst expectations to local recruiting territory ratio and the Alabama cross over game. 

I kinda want to see Briles get the UTenn or Ole Miss job

May not be in Ole Miss' best interests to hire someone with Briles' issues as their next head coach. And LOL at Currie hiring him.

Nebraska would be a perfect landing spot for Campbell, for both sides imo. Should Frost get a better gig or turn down Neb I think they should turn to Campbell

Campbell would be pretty dumb to take an SEC job. If I'd spent my entire career in the upper midwest I'd probably want to continue to coach and recruit from the same region.

Briles can't be getting any P5 offer any time soon right?

This is either a preadmission or nightmare:  Last night I wasn't sleeping very well and I can't get this out of my mind.  Folks, Texas will break up the Big XII just like they did with the Southwest Conference.   They will start a new conference composed of the four Texas schools, the two Oklahoma schools, the two Arizona schools, and the four California schools.  This new Southwestern Conference will get top billing and along with it a huge network contract.

This would leave us to form the new Big XII, comprised of KSU, KU, ISU, WVU, with the addition of UCF, USF, UC, UH, CSU and Navy.  If possible, BSU and BYU.  Not sure this would still qualify or allow us to stay a P5 Conference, but it would cover nine states from Florida to Utah.  What say you?

That may be what it comes to, but what if they take the MWC teams that are closer to their region.  West Virginia is a long ways from Washington.  That's why I was thinking BSU & BYU are a maybe.

I feel good about Del Conte keeping the Big XII together, he is a deal maker.

Well, this is certainly an interesting realignment proposal:
https://www.yahoo.com/sports/heres-radical-new-college-football-playoff-plan-possibly-end-complaining-022518359.html

We add 4 teams, play in two divisions.  One can debate the additions to the Big 12, but it is certainly an entertaining proposal.

It dilutes the schedule. Having the schedule mostly comprised of shitty north schools with Cincinnati and Memphis seems really gross and boring. Fourteen team conferences are AIDS.
