re: What's with the Matt Canada love? - nvasil1
Thanks for linking the Pitt graphic. I was going to look for it when I got home tonight....

re: What's with the Matt Canada love? - nvasil1
He's the only OC nominated for the Broyles award. Kiffin won't hang around here long. Applewhite sucks. The O Canada jokes have endless possibilities....

re: Mike McIntyre of Colorado is worthy of an LSU interview - nvasil1
[quote] Moscona says definitively that McIntyre badly wanted the LSU gig, fwiw. [/quote] I hope Moscona is just trolling because I felt sick to my stomach when I first heard him say that. I wasn't real high on McIntyre when he was first mentioned on here, but I also didn't expect O to be hired....

re: LSU Nike Jacket Question - nvasil1
[quote]However, I'd like a heavier LSU jacket too--something like a letterman's jacket. I cannot find one, even at LSU Barnes and Noble.[/quote] I've been on the lookout for one, too. Nike did a wool, gray letterman's style jacket several years ago that looked cool (maybe 2001 or 2002 season). ...

re: Great players who you keep forgetting played for your favorite team - nvasil1
[quote]Canseco on the White Sox. They sure are good at picking up stars for a minute. [/quote] They really are. I'll throw Omar Vizquel into that discussion. Even Ron Santo played his final season on the South Side....

re: What's at the root of the problem between Nick and Lane? - nvasil1
[quote]I think there's a lot less trouble there than the media and non-Bama fans like to believe.[/quote] I tend to agree with this. Saban talks a lot about avoiding complacency while Kiffin typically projects a DGAF demeanor. I think their problem is more a clash of personalities than somethin...

re: Not so inside sources....Jeff Brohm to Purdue... - nvasil1
Meh, Brohm is almost 20 years younger and likely comes a lot cheaper to a program stuck in the abyss. This hire doesn't reflect negatively on Les as a coach IMO....

re: Today is Dave Wannstedt Day! - nvasil1
I remember watching the 4th qtr of this game on an old Zenith box TV with an antenna at my parents' house. Heavy snow in the Chicago area knocked out the Direct TV signal, so my dad goes tearing into the basement and hauls up this dusty relic from the 80s I didn't know he still had. The pict...

re: Fleck and notre dame news - nvasil1
Never heard this. I know he and his ex had a child die in infancy. Fleck also said in an interview that she hated the coaching lifestyle and having to move around, so it just wasn't meant to be. Considering Brian Kelly got a kid killed, I don't think any ND fan can say someone isn't good enou...

re: I really don't understand the people trying to discredit Lane K. as a o.c. - nvasil1
[quote]I read thread after thread about he isn't any good.[/quote] Link? I've seen several reasons why people don't want Kiffin, like he'll bolt for a HC job soon, his playcalling or he's a jerk. I haven't seen many posters argue he isn't any good at his job....

re: Why isn't DePaul a more formidable basketball school? - nvasil1
I think Leitao coming back will make them somewhat competitive again. That was a good re-hire. From what I've read and heard, Wainwright's biggest problem was that he was too nice. Apparently a great guy, but never really pushed his players and didn't recruit aggressively. I think Purnell is...

re: Why isn't DePaul a more formidable basketball school? - nvasil1
Since you mentioned the mis-management of DePaul, I'll add that they seem to have a problem caring (for lack of a better word) and the basketball program embodies that. They are surrounded by a wealth of talent, but they don't even try to recruit with the big boys. They should at least be as c...

re: Why isn't DePaul a more formidable basketball school? - nvasil1
DePaul used to broadcast games on WGN, so they had a national reach and could recruit who they wanted. They kind of have a Notre Dame problem to a far lesser extent. Everyone is on TV these days, so they aren't "special" anymore. The closing of Alumni Hall and playing most home games in the Ros...

[quote]Do you live in Tuscaloosa? For me it's the exact opposite. I have yet to meet someone that isn't excited about the Orgeron hire. The only time I have seen negativity is on here.[/quote] I think the folks in Tuscaloosa are more excited about the hire than we are. ETA: Already pointed out I...

re: What's your opinion of Matt Rhule at Temple? - nvasil1
[quote]I was touting him last year during the Fisher/Miles debacle. Everybody told me to frick off[/quote] :lol: To be fair, last year was his first successful one and Temple is in the weaker division of the AAC. But they're back in the conference title game and could have another 10-win season...

re: What's your opinion of Matt Rhule at Temple? - nvasil1
I like him. Good coach winning at a tough job. Other than Penn State last year, he doesn't really have any big skins on the wall, which might be why he hasn't gotten the attention of Herman....

re: Fleck and Oregon - nvasil1
[quote]So Brian Kelly possibly?[/quote] My co-worker said he'd be surprised if Kelly ended up at Oregon, but thought the report about him looking to get away from ND had legs to it. I jokingly suggested ND might be trying to lure Brady Hoke to South Bend as DC, which just prompted him to make fu...

TIFWIW, but the Notre Dame guy I work with said there is a private jet flying from South Bend to Eugene today. Looks like he's right... [link=(https://flightaware.com/live/flight/N835ND/history/20161130/2130Z/KSBN/KEUG)]Flight Tracker[/link]...
