What obdog said. Really seems like Shoop is a good DC that was in a dumpster fire situation.
Not exciting but I think it's a decent hire. He did well everywhere except UT and there were other factors in play there.
He was reported as the #4 recruiter somewhere. There, mystery solved. That was quick.
Haha, so you're dependent on your rival school to have bowl game entertainment, provided State does lose. I don't think I need to comment on that.
Another solid hire. Really liking what Moorhead is putting together so far.
Good man. Moorhead can do great things with 3 star players.
As much as I would like to see State beat Louisville like that, the coaching staff turnover might effect things too much. I think it's possible but obviously State is without their starting QB, their defense coordinator, their o-line coach, and possibly others. I'm not saying a win is impossible (if the staff was intact I would outright predict a win, I think State is the better team) but it would be pretty damn gutsy.
Nah I can just never remember to update my stuff.
We knew about this already.
Ehh, it's the same way I feel about ole piss I'm sure. I would be saying the same thing about the rebearsharks if they were bowling. Too bad they aren't.
Auburn, please beat the brakes off of UCF.
This is a stress free bowl game for me. The team gets extra practice before the 2018 season so that's all I really care about. A win would be cool, a loss isn't a big deal since we'll have a new coaching staff next season anyway.
So that's a yes, you're obsessed. Haha. Little sad but okay, I guess everybody needs a thing to be passionate about.
If State wins, you're gonna be so disappointed. Us losing the bowl game is all you've been able to think about, apparently.
Yeah, how I feel about this game really depends on our coaching staff. With a head coach and the rest of the staff together, I'd say State wins by 10+. Otherwise, who knows.
The reports that I saw weren't specific about the players, but they did say they were contacting schools outside of the SEC to transfer.
How severe this really ends up being depends on how many players transfer. I saw yesterday that there were already reports of players asking to transfer thanks to them not losing eligibility for it, so it could end up being pretty damn painful.
Agreed, and he has already stated again and again the importance of the staff around him. I'm expecting some pretty solid hires.
Y'all are silly. These are standard motivation tactics plus laying out his goals.
Agreed, he should absolutely be leaving.
Even as a State fan, i'm ready for this to be over so the state as a whole can move on and so this doesn't get brought up in every Eggbowl conversation (even though I've been guilty of that myself).
State will get exactly as many rings as Bama this year.
Agreed, he isn't trash talking at all, he's motivating and simply stating his goals. He did the same at Penn State and accomplished them.
Everyone seems to agree that he's an offensive mastermind. All we need is a good DC and State should be set.
Love the confidence.
I haven't given him a pass at all for that. He did a lot for us but that was a pretty low down way to leave.
It seems like it has been a problem everywhere he's been.
Moorhead has already been looking for another DC so this isn't a surprise. Florida can have Grantham's way too aggressive defense.
Understatement of the year.
Appreciate it, good luck in your bowl game. SEC!
