    They think otherwise... but the biggest aggravation about this fan forum... are the self appointed fan forum police that believe it's necessary to continuously evaluate the fans on this forum. I love the differences of opinion. To knock the fact that this forum is rich with opinion... is pathetic.

    We are not talking about the barometer of our athletic programs... we are the barometer. If you see an issue... on balance... with a lot of fans on this forum... the program(s) has a problem. Not the other way around.

    I visually interpret certain people on this forum as some dufus sitting in the stands at a game. When the fans cheer... he stares at them... not the game. When the fans boo... he stares at them... not the game. Then his big comment after the game is that fan cheering and booing aren't in alignment with his view of the program... and he disputes that a certain time they were cheering shouldn't have happened... because only minutes before they were booing. Knock yourself out dufus.

    PS Cajunref, you are not the dufus. You are correct... we need to see what this defense (and offense) have in them (including the coaching) once we get into play with the better teams in the SBC. I hope we win out. But I will make assessments on a frequency of my own choosing... as we win or lose. Because I'm just one more fan.
    We're half way through the season, right?

    We still don't know who, or if we have an FBS QB, we don't know if we have a serviable defense, and no confidence in special teams.

    All this chaos in year seven of Hudspeth. Every fan has the right to like or dislike where we are, and have been under Hud. The one thing he doesn't deserve is fans wanting a bigger sample size.

    For me, and I hope I'm wrong, we fully understand Hud's upside. That upside isn't good enough for him to get a bigger gig, then it's not good enough to keep him. In fact that should be in every contract. After four years you can get a new gig, or we might fire you.

    Something has gotta give. Over the last 2 and a half seasons we are....

    13-18 overall

    10-9 in SBC

    0 non-conf FBS wins


    Folks, this is completely unacceptable. Either Hudspeth finds the reset button on this program by doing something like finishing 5-1 or Dr. Maggard hits that button for him.

    Maggard needs to hit the button and Hud falls through the trapdoor.........even if rescues the season and wins a bowl game. As stated above, the sample size is now big enough and what he offers is not what we're looking for.

    My thoughts exactly.
    Even IF we win out -- I mean end with a 9-3 record - it is time for us to move on!
    I Base MY opinion (not speaking for anyone else) on what I have observed for over 7 years as solid evidence of his past actions, mistakes, miscues, ill-conceived micro-management, and lack of a big picture strategy .
    By the way, IF we win out (odds are 1M-1), it will be in SPITE of Hud, NOT because of him

    Obviously our next hire will be the most important in the program's history, especially with all that's at stake in the near term. We need to hire a head coach who puts together a solid group of assistants and who within a couple of years is being courted by SEC members.

    So Maggard would have to find $1.5 million buyout for a coach who went 7-1 in conference...finished the season on a 8 game win streak and program's first ever SEC victory? Good luck with that. In spite of him or not.

    Sometimes its better to be lucky than good.

    No lucky coach has ever been fired.

    Trust me when I tell you, if and when Dr. Maggard decides to reboot the program, the buyout money will be available. It has been on the table since mid-season last year.

    And trust me when I tell you if Mark Hudspeth wins out he isn't going anywhere. Only way you are rebooting after that is if he gets another job.

    Yeah that would be stupid. I think we need a new coach, but if he were to go 5-1 over the last 6 then you keep him another year. Then talk contracts after the following season.

    I still think we go 1-5 or 2-4 at best over the next 6 though.

    What I can't agree with with that line of thinking is that there's so much emphasis placed on this one season.

    Okay, he turns it around and goes 5-1 over the last 6. Great. But what about the ____ show over the first half of the season? We've got a coach who needs 6 games to figure out his team's strengths and weaknesses before he can start winning consistently? And it's not like that's only a recent phenomenon. Coupled with all the off-the-field problems, that's not what this program needs.

    I love the extreme hypothetical that has 1.75% chance of happening. "If Hud goes 21-0 over the next 21 games... and recruits six 4 star recruits... are y'all still going to want him fired?"

    I love this site.

    I wasn't the one who brought up winning out or the one who said he should still be let go after 8 straight wins. I'm not sure which idea is more ridiculous, that we even have a chance of winning out or if we somehow managed to pull it off that our AD would fire him.

    If this was the last year of his contract or even the second to last you have a point. People keep forgetting the business side of it. You have to take it all into account. He would return most of this team after winning out and had a 1.5 million dollar buyout. If the man would somehow win out with this schedule how can anyone really say he didn't earn another year? 9-3 and at least a shared title and chance for double digit wins with a bowl victory and we gonna pay 1.5 to send him home? I'm all for expecting more but thats crazy talk...like crazier than tiger fans. If the money was there to buy him out last year and a second consecutive losing season, 13 players arrested and physical altercation with a player didn't get him fired...this is the scenario you think will break the camels back? Haha..at least you are safe because we aren't winning out.

    I have one small disagreement with this post.....nothing is crazier than Tiger fans....

    We have had plenty of years to see the "body of work" and have witnessed all we need to witness as fans of what a Hud program is capable of. I'm not impressed with it and want more then he can deliver. This University needs a more prominent football program, and should be able to achieve it.

    And we get this package for the bargain price of $1M/ year.
    That is the number one reason I hold him to a standard 10x (or 3x, really) that of Bustle.
    If the last 3 seasons were with Bustle at $300K, I would most likely not be of the opinion he should go.
