    South Alabama - we are a better spot than they are.
    I am a little curious about SMU. Is there an underlying tension between boosters/board of directors/etc and the power of the Head coach at a private school? You know how private institutes are influenced by certain people in positions....does Sumlin want to put up with that? Some one could make the argument that the RCAF donors and alumni reflect the same fashion, but I have to believe those supporting private schools have MUCH MORE
    Influence than any of us ever could.

    It's a great point. Trust me, the RCAF are no where near what SMU boosters are when it comes to meddling and influencing.

    I just wonder if those big money SMU boosters want to hear from their aTm buddies about how they hired the Aggie's cast off.

    Anyway, Agree on other points, but why was Chip Lindsey eliminated from the South Al job?
    Looking more and more like USA will hire Will Healy the HC from Austin Peay. Not sure if they couldn't come to terms with Lindsey or Lindsey just didn't want it.

    The most overrated quality when evaluating possible hires for the head coaching position is previous head coaching experience.

    Of the last 4 hires stAte has made only one of them was head coach in college before and that was at non-D1 Lambuth.

    Their hires have moved on to Boise State, Ole Miss, and Auburn as head coaches.

    I just talked to a friend who is friends with the Sumlins. She says they are not saying anything but she feels he is working on something. She hopes it would be here but he or his wife are not talking.

    BBK, you and your wife could be our ace-in-the-hole.
    Have you guys been lobbying for us? Selling them on the area? Have you fed them?

    I need to meet your wife so we can go over some talking points! ASAP!!!

    A panic hire. He turned Peay around in 2 years but he is very young with limited experience. I'd consider that a high risk.

    Yup. Spent 6 years with Chattanooga as WR coach before Peay. Went 0-11 in your 1 and 8-4 year 2 at Peay.
