    TJoe is the boss, is anyone questioning that fact? But if he fails to move, then he will show he is not committed to moving this program any further then it's status today. As for Hudspeth, which two games you have him winning of the games remaining on the schedule?

    And T-Joe is a politician, y'all want me to make a move then this is what we need....and they will have to secure all of that money in its entirety, which at this time it is not. NMSU and GS...luck out with decent weather at App state and stealing one there isn't impossible either.

RCAF donations cover the rest of his salary that is above what the state allows. That money will still be there to hire another coach.So we are talking about $500K, which is damn affordable but TJoe doesn't like paying anyone for doing nothing. Which is why he transferred Farmer to another department.

    All this discussion about Hudspeth maybe mute at this point, especially if he finds a way to win 6 games and get back to another bowl game.
    Mute"??

    what position was she hired to, who is it? if it was entry level and she worked her way up, yea i dont have a problem with it (again, if she performs her job well), if it was senior level stuff then i would need to see her previous qualifications.

    Hey! Hud is 3-1 since then!!

    Back to softball. The University had no other recourse than to let Mike go. There are several more parts of the story that may or may not come out in time, but with the multiple different documents and witnesses attesting to Mike's behavior, Maggard's and his staffs' hands were tied. I'm all for being hard on players, but laying you hands on them or other staff members is the line. Mike crossed it and actions have consequences no matter who you are or how successful you are.

    The support from his players is not a surprise, but the public opinion that Mike is blameless and the University owes everyone an apology is exactly what ML and his attorneys wanted in this case. We all know that most people who comment on social media (and some on message boards ) are collectively uniformed and idiots. They have not researched the facts and post with there hearts. The guy who wrote this letter looks to be one of those.

    I know--amazing how a thread about an opinion piece on the Lotief situation turned into

    Common Opponents:

    App beat Texas State by 7. We beat Texas State by 17.

    App beat Idaho by 3. We beat Idaho by 5.

    App lost to ULM by 7. We lost to ULM by 6.


    Why in the world would we need to steal a victory against App? And, I couldn't care less if we play in a snowstorm. Ragas is still goin' in raw on them hillbillies.

    Because they own our az....the first time texas state beats us they will feel like they stole it. On second thought, a snowstorm might benefit us.

    FTR, I agree with Mud on plenty of things. The man has strong opinions. I can respect that.

    I wish our team was better just so we could spend more time talking about how awesome Ragas is. That dude is a beast.
