His record is laughable compared to Chip Kelly and a lot of other college coaches. His team was improving but there is no reason to think it will continue apace.

He barely has more wins than losses. This hire was the hire of a Loser Organization.


And that has what to do with Marrone’s coaching ability? Nothing and it will soon show that he is over his head. Kelly took over a team from Mike Bellotti that had just went 10-3 and was nationally ranked at #10…Marrone took over from Greg Robinson who had won 10 total games in 4 seasons…47 games and they won 10…to compare the situation that both walked into is pointless… Did Syracuse keep the same AD or was a different one working with Robinson? My guess is NO.

Marrone might not have been the best candidate out there but I have more faith in his college offence working in the NFL than Kelly current one…and you can only judge a guy on what he has done…not what you presume he can do. That attitude argues against hiring Marrone.
Sure we could hire the coach of Joliet Catholic, too. Marrone has never been the head coach in a real conference. He probably would have had little success even in the Big Ten had he taken the next logical step to a major conference rather than answer the call of a desperate and bad organization.


And yet again you’re full of it…Marrone was the HC in an automatic BCS conference…to say it isn’t a real conference when the team who won the conference beat the #3 ranked team in the nation in a bowl game makes no sense…plus the Big Ten is no more a major conference than the Big East at this point.
Well that's not true at all. 3 of the top 5, 7 of the top 15, all 12 in the top 20 of the most nationally relevant college football teams definitely says otherwise. The B1G is a major power player in the NCAA, the Big East on the otherhand has been losing its team to other conferences (as of now Syracuse is a member of the ACC btw) and forced to pull teams from the nonbcs conferences in order to keep that AQ bid. There is a strong chance that if the playoff system is not introduced next year as expected, that the Big East will lose that AQ status and it could go to the MAC or more likely the CUSA/MWAC combination.

In the AP Top 25 the Big Ten has 4 teams…3 considering Ohio State was not bowl eligible…of those 3 only one team won a bowl game this year…Northwestern…the Big Ten isn’t what it once was…now with the money and influence of the teams in the conference they will without doubt get back but right now they aren’t a powerhouse and aren’t relevant nationally…there isn’t a team in the Big Ten right now that could beat Florida IMO…and very few who could beat the top 5 or 6 teams in the SEC.

When I talk national relevance, I'm speaking about there draw. They are the only conference that can independently run and sell there channel nationally to basic cable. THE ONLY ONE. Texas can't sell the TLN to sports tier packages outside the state of texas, SEC network even w/ the backing of CBS sports hasn't come close to what the B1G net has done. BTN is available nationwide almost exclusively on basic packages, NFLN can't even do that. That's power. That's relevancy.

No one is denying that…as I said as a conference they have as much money and influence as any if not more…I don't doubt they will get back to being an elite conference on the field because of that but right now on the field they aren’t a powerhouse in the way the SEC is.

There is no doubt the Big 20 or whatever it is now is not terribly good but it is much better than what was the Big East even with its weakness. And the Big East is in the process of falling apart or adding even weaker teams.

Being only a modestly successful coach in the Big East is a terribly thin resume to be a head coach in the pros and there is no reason to expect success in hiring one. Grasping at Louisville's victory is expected but would be a rare occurence if there were a series of SEC vs Big East games. The exception proves the rule.

And as to who is "full of it" and who is not. Who said a month ago that Smith was gone and that he would not be hired as a head coach and who argued the contrary?

Some times a desperation hire pays off and this might be one of those but the odds are WAY against it.

My reasons for firing Smith have been completely laid out repeatedly by me and have nothing to do with anything you or others have "worked out" of your fevered imaginations.

I do not hate the man at all, just the dumb decisions he has made that have cost us unnecessary losses. He gave us his best shot and I appreciate his effort. It just was not good enough.

We don't anoint a King for life here so his time was up.

The Lovers of Lovie chorus around these parts is shrinking by the day. As is the list of places who could be dumb enough to hire him as a head coach. All a bunch of racists no doubt.

I do not hate the man at all, just the dumb decisions he has made that have cost us unnecessary losses. He gave us his best shot and I appreciate his effort. It just was not good enough.

We don't anoint a King for life here so his time was up.


That's it...sure.
Why would I lie? It isn't as if I give a $$$$ what any of you think of me or my opinions.
