    I'd not. Seems 129 other FBS aren't anxious to hire the grass eater. Anyway he's not going back to coaching in the six figure neighborhood.

    During his time at lsu he averaged I believe 10 or 11 wins a year. Won a National championship and played for another. Pay him 1 mill a year and get him here.

    Not sure what you mean....we hire a Baldwin or Hudspeth but Miles would be a bad hire??

    I'll gladly take a coach that averaged 10 wins a year in the SEC...JMO

    I don't think we have a shot at Baldwin or Orlando, but I could be wrong.

    Keeler should have some good East TX and hopefully LA recruiting ties being at Sam Houston.

    I like the thought of Grass, but does he have relationships with nearby Louisiana and East TX high schools?

    There's no correlation to what Miles did at LSU and what he would do in the SBC. He wouldn't want the gig anyway. And it's not like he's a football guru. He wasn't bad at holding the fort that Nick built. But he's not the guy you'd hire to turn your program around.

    Beau Baldwin is making about $575k at Cal.

    I care less about ties within the state. I almost think it would be better for a coach to come in and build his own relationships from scratch.

    I'd also prefer a guy who can actually coach instead of a recruiter/motivator.

    This will be the most important hire in the school's history. We should be able to do better than Miles. Nothing against him personally, I just don't see that he'd have his heart in it.

    Im with you on 1-3.

    #4. Orlando might be fired by Thanksgiving
    #5. KC Keller would have been great hire 7 years ago. He's would be a safe hire, but he's 59 years old.

    My 4 & 5 would be....

    4. Manny Diaz - DC at Miami
    - Has relationships in LA,Miss.,TX and South Florida. He can also bring in a staff with P5 experience due to his previous jobs. SEC,ACC,& Big 12

    5. Broderick Fobbs - HC at Grambling
    - UL grad assistant, strong Louisiana ties (UL,NSULA,McNeese),75% winning percentage, winning with little resources.

    My reason for being in the Mike Houston camp is the way he has won with different programs. He comes from a defensive background. Won at the D2 level before taking the job at The Citadel. There he ran a triple option offense and upset South Carolina. Took the job with James Madison and used the spread that was already in place and won a national championship.

    That shows me that he has a process that works but he is not stuck on a certain type of system. He will do what best fits the personnel available.

    I'm definitely not opposed to him at all. I just really love the offense that Beau Baldwin ran at EWU and what he's running at Cal. I think it would do very well with the type of athletes we generally produce in Louisiana.

    While I love his record, I'm not sure his style would translate here. At LSU, he was able to get the best at most positions and could run a power attack and be successful. Here, I'm not so sure that would work. I like our current system. I don't know how flexible he is in implementing different tactics but it didn't seem like he was. He would, however, create a major buzz not only here but in the CFB world which would put a lot more attention on our program which could really help. $1 million for him compared to Hud and i would take Miles any day of the week.
