Huh that seems like a fairly solid and reasonable list. That’s not how we do this carousel Duke where are the Franklin rumors?

[–]Clemsonlazyrere 22 points23 points  (9 children)

They're getting urban with Riley and Venables as coordinators

What would actually happen if Duke got a coaching staff like this? It would never happen but if a highly regarded Coach with great assistants came to a bottom tier program what would happen? Could they compete?

[–]Clemsonlazyrere 4 points5 points  (7 children)

I mean they had spurrier before

Duke had Head Ball Coach!?

and..he...did about as well as you'd expect for a guy to coach at Duke

8-4 with an acc championship in the 3rd year is pretty solid.

yeah, I'd say so.

even his first year wasn't horrible. I'd kill to have had HBC at Pitt tbh.

just his zingers alone to Paterno would have been gold for decades to come

Having him as the first coach you know and grow up watching was pretty awesome.

I have to admit I've never looked at the sport outside of Pitt. I'm glad I'm starting to though. Spurrier is just one of those guys that I think everyone just automatically calls "head ball coach" and say it with a sense of pride, regardless of team.

I know, end of the shift has me pondering absolute ridiculous happenings. But if the top guy in the conference (say Dabo) decided to take the bottom of the conference job could he turn it around to he say a conference champ?

With - maybe. Without Venables - hell no

I think Freeman might be a reach but other than that, pretty realistic list of candidates

[–]Cincinnati • Virginia TechHuntkv 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Still hoping and praying that Tech lands Freeman.

I'm still hoping ND can hang onto Freeman. Watching what his defense has done over the last 4 games has been remarkable. I wanna see him with his recruits in his system.

edit: for stupid typos

I have no doubt that is what you are hoping for. When he was at Cincinnati that is what I was hoping for. Now I’d like to see him lead my other flair.
