Will they fire him immediately after OU puts 70 on them or wait until they lose to Buffalo?

I think Scott might find a closet to hide in during that game.

My money is on "COVID protocols" will keep him off the sideline that game.

I think they were looking ahead to the OU game vs Illinois, that was an upset and Illini got lucky  :peek:

The streak for punishing disadvantaged youth is way longer than since 1962

I really don't know, but feel like I've seen this several times before where all empties get bought up to keep the steak alive....that right?

Also, yes. They could have helped kids much more with the same cash, but you know, the streak

You have to wonder if they actually paid face value for those tickets, or were they sold at a "volume discount", like a buck a ticket.

I always wondered if some of that was card game and the donor got hella whatever their version of Ahearn points or if they have business sponsorship that those ticket buys level out with other financial deals on the sponsorship end.

yeah you could probably put 5 more schools on that list and not many folks would think you're crazy. Tennessee, Michigan, Penn State, aTm, LSU off the top of my head.

Lol at that list.

I’d have Oregon, Wiscy, Iowa, Minnesota, basically any Big Ten west team outside nubb. Those schools will love you forever and pay you piles of money for a modicum of success, and they have the resources to do it. Oregon isn’t the same, but it’s Oregon.

Prob shows my work ethic (or lack of it), that I always think the best jobs are ones where it is easy to do pretty good and people love you for it.

Best Bball jobs is easier. It’s like any big time football school: Florida, Texas, types.  Easy to win. No pressure.

With the exception of Northwestern and Iowa those Big 10 West schools run though coaches like crap through a tin horn, and no one is claiming Northwestern is a good job. Believe me when I tell you, whomever follows Ferentz is almost definitely getting fired and fired fairly quickly, they would have called for his ass if he lost that cyhawk game last Saturday.

They're the worst offenders, they've had 4 coaches the last 9 years.

Since 2000:

Iowa - 1 Head Coach
Northwestern - 2 Head Coaches
Purdue - 4 Head Coaches
Wisconsin - 4 Head Coaches
Nebraska - 5 Head Coaches
Illinois - 6 Head Coaches
Minnesota - 6 Head Coaches

Penn State - 3 Head Coaches
Maryland - 4 Head Coaches
Michigan - 4 Head Coaches
Michigan State - 4 Head Coaches
Ohio State - 4 Head Coaches
Rutgers - 4 Head Coaches*
Indiana - 6 Head Coaches

*Rutgers had Greg Schiano from 2001-11 and hired him again last year.  So it's 3 different coaches but 4 tenures

You're being extremely disingenuous and misleading.  Since 1990, Wisconsin has had four different people  coach their program.  Barry Alvarez coached from 1990-2005.  Bret Bielema coached from 2006-2012 when he left to go to Arkansas.  Barry Alvarez coached one game for the 2012 season (bowl game) after Bielema left.  Gary Andersen coached from 2013-2014 when he left because he didn't like the admission standards at Wisconsin.  This was after a season in which they made the Big 10 championship game.  Alvarez then coached the bowl game for the 2014 season.  Paul Chryst has been there since 2015.

Since 1990 their coaches have had success and then either retired or left of their own accord (not fired).  The current coach is in his seventh season.  That's not a school that goes through coaches.

I had that same thought when MIR tried to make that ridiculous claim, but I’m glad someone actually did the research for me. Question is, will he take the L on this one or will he try to know-it-all blowhard his way through it?  :bwpopcorn:
