He'll soon find out that a 5 star on the west coast is equivalent to a 3 star down south

Good . I never saw how folks were so enamored by him. He will do well in the PAC. He would have been an also ran in the SEC.

We won 2 NCships with 2 morons as Head Coaches so I wouldn’t downgrade High School coaches much..

He's scared to coach in the SEC. Yeah he'll be in the playoffs but he won't win a Natty there. Not saying I blame him but you gotta have balls to coach in the SEC. Period.

He doesn't want to compete with the SEC. Im not sure I blame him. Go west and dominate recruiting and coast into the playoffs without the SEC gauntlet.

Y’all sound like kids. His offensive style fits. He will have the pick of the west coast litter. Media loves far lies like USC, ND, etc. Los Angels. Sorry, but it’s an international city for a reason. He will be competing for the top 4 soon. Or LSU who just fired a NC coach two years later? Yeah, BR and Ruth’s Chris is a much better gig.

This year: Billy Napier lost by 20 to a terrible Texas team. Billy Napier beat a terrible Arkansas State team by 1 point. Billy Napier beat Nichols State by 3 points. Billy Napier beat South Alabama by 2 points. Billy Napier has never won the friggin’ Sun Belt Conference. Did not want Billy Napier. If he had lost to Nichols, South Alabama, or Arkansas State would you actually think he is the Coach for LSU? Hell no.
