    What did he do at Cincy(24-13) that was so special? He inherited a great system and players that Kelly recruited and while the results the last 2 years have been solid they are not what they were when Kelly was there. .

    He won 2/3 of his games at Central Mich which is solid. I would not call his stints as an OC stellar.

    Geography doesn't matter any longer. His credentials as a coach in Michigan and Ohio would be more suitable for the big ten but other coaches like Saben and Meyer came from outside this part of the country to have massive success. Still would have been nice to interview some coaches with recruiting pipelines in the south.

    Solid hire, a huge improvement over Dooley.

    Still think that Dykes and Hudspeth should have been the 2 top guys on that list after Strong. They had such a hard on for Gruden they wasted their time with him. Dykes ended up going to Cal.

    Hudspeth had a 25-1 record a s a high school coach in Alabama and a 66-21 at North Alabama before going to Louisiana Lafayette where he has been successful in the sun belt conference. . He has a lot of recruiting experience and contacts in the south. He knows a lot of high school coaches out there. I think he could be a great coach in the sec.

    I think they already knocked out "worst hire ever" with Dooley. This might be 2nd worst.

    Surely someone better was willing. They should have got Beleima before Arkansas. Not that he'll survive in the SEC.. he cried about Big10 recruiting shenanigans... he'll go insane dealing with the SEC's.

    I say you cut your losses in Year 3 and dump him.

    They are going to lose to UGA and Alabama and likely Missouri.

    Kentucky could be the death nail in his job.


    Start putting feelers out now and do some talks behind closed doors. Find out who is interested and move on if you can upgrade.
