    The situation is too toxic in Waco right now.

    Very few coaches with other opportunities are going to want to be anywhere close to that program for a few years.

    Less pressure to win right away at Purdue. They kept their last coach for four years even though his record was only 9-33. Brohm will be given time to try and build the program. All he has to do is go .500% and his job will be safe for years.

    I said the same months ago.

    They will have to seriously overpay. I'd throw the kitchen sink at Les Miles if I were a Baptist.

    Kentucky football is equally forgettable.

    I always remember Kentucky, because they're rarely good and have a good basketball program. Vandy - the obligatory private school. Kansas? Basketball. Iowa State - pretty close to Purdue, but for whatever reason I remember them. Purdue I gloss over. Completely forget they exist.

    You're right. The only time I think of Purdue(Perdue) is when these guys remind me...

    Brohm accepted 20M over 6. Baylor offered Morris 5 million per. My guess is that Baylor didn't offer Brohm that type of money. Let's see how this all plays out. I think they have certain numbers in mind for different guys

    Was the 5MM for Morris ever confirmed? Hard to believe they'd shell out that kind of cash for him, let alone him turning it down (regardless of buyout for A&M). That is a ton of cash.

    I'm not sure but I think 4.9 was the exact number.

    Good coaching can change things quickly, just take a look at how Wisconsin went from big ten door mat to top of big ten when they hired Alvarez years ago.

    Every rumor I've posted hasn't ended well. Lol. But rumor is we've offered Gundy a large deal.

    Mike Gundy wasn't at the Alamo Bowl presser today. People think he might be interviewing with Baylor but I can't see him taking the job. I'm guessing he could be in play for Oregon.

    Rhule with the cash grab. Good for him. Gonna be very difficult for him to win at Baylor.

    Oregon apparently was on his trail. Glad it worked out for us

    He has a 7 year contract so it seems they all know it's a rebuilding project. He's going to have a lot to deal with. I'm pretty confident the NCAA is going to take away scholarships and ban postseason play for a couple years once they complete their investigation.
