I’d much rather have Helton at USC than Urban. Maybe the constant talk of firing the Helton scared off recruits? How many programs out there with a tenuous coaching situation can haul in top 10...

Realistically, how much further up can they move? They have to move nearly 50 spots to get around the #20 rank from last year. Given that the first signing period is less than 2 weeks away, it seems...

Look back at the wish list of coaches from 2016, howís that list look today? Perhaps itís not always smart to make rash, emotional decisions without much of a plan.

Schiano was a Coordinator. Again, Iíd love to have the guy, but going from HC to a position coach is a really big drop.

Not being able to recruit kids who are poor students. Thatís a lot of the top 200 recruits.

Itís in the 60s for 2020, itís ranked 8th for 2021. Thatís a pretty stunning variance. I have to imagine thereís some big recruits still considering them that havenít committed. Thereís no earthly...

Hell no. I still say given the limited recruiting resources and expectations, ND is the most stressful (not necessarily difficult) job in the sport.

They have a really good Offense coming back with Slovis, St Brown, Stepp,etc. Iíll be surprised if they donít win the PAC 12. I think thatís the minimum requirement for Helton to keep his job next...

IMO, the 4th spot should go to UGA (if they win) or the winner of OK/Baylor. Utah will not have a quality enough win to usurp any of those 3. However, politics might come into play with the PAC 12...

Iíd love to have him, but that seems like a mighty big step down from being HC at a P5 program.

I donít think itís a given he canít win a title. He got to the Playoff, and while they were outclassed, heís a lot closer than a new hire would be. Itís like being a mountain climber, getting 9/10 of...

OK St fans unhappy with Mike Gundy, but where were they before he got there? Everyone wants the fast change and they want it to work. Itís not realistic.

Itís like talking to a wall at times. If the goal is a title, theyíre much closer with Kelly than if they were to hire someone new and start from scratch.
