THE ONLY THING I'M ADDICTED TO IS WINNING--CHARLIE SHEEN
Do we know other names that are still in consideration......and Logan needs to be able to make an educated decision in a few days....is this possible for him or is he gonna have to roll the dice.....
Trying to stay optimistic, a little tough but some thoughts on Long...
He had some success, albeit not recently enough for some, at OU as an OC. His last year, ranking 71st in offense, he played a true freshman QB in Rhett Bomar. I'll give him a little slack for that year. The others, were ranked quite a bit better than where we finished playing against weaker competition.
Taking the Kansas OC was a poor career choice, most of us have had them. Very hard to play from behind with an atrocious D in the B12, when the B12 had a ton of talent. Can't drop back and pass every play and expect to have success.
Hiring him would allow us to bring in some coaches that many here have lobbied for, ie. Malone for one. Malone, as several have pointed out could coach up the OL.
He may not have been the HC that SDSU was hoping for when they hired him, but he does have a legit resume as an OC, just that his success seems like it was an eternity ago.
He hasn't been hired....yet, and we don't know that we might not get blind-sided yet again with another name, so I'm going to elect to wait it out and see what happens.
As for recruiting, I'd bet his name might be familiar with our recruits dads and coaches.
Sweetpea if you are still on ,thanks for the answer to my question about the monitoring.
Looks like we weren't that far off with the Willis White, Joel Hicks, and Steve Ragsdale jokes the other day. At least they were HS head coaches and have ties to VA. Lol
All joking aside, the fact that Long is a candidate shows how out of touch our program can be. Fans shouldn't drive coaching decisions, but talk about alienating an already pissed off fan base ...... Here you go.
Thanks for the response. Personally I hope he does not make it any farther in the process. I'd honestly rather just promote Shane ... At least he is young and a good recruiter who knows the region

The fact that we're justifying why this guy's resume is so bad since 05 is pretty telling...
It is Mike O'cain part 2. Both guys who specialize in QBs who are failed head coaches, took a year off before joining/potentially joining the staff, and that apparently don't recruit.

Not disagreeing with you at all, trying to find the silver lining. LOTS of gloom in the Dome tonight, trying to avoid it, tough as it is.
