my fear is that we sign a Mclendon and then Loyal Lambert trots Klugh out there for the first 6 games anyways.

There are 130 FBS teams.. How many don't have a fairly solid 2 or in some cases 3 deep at the QB position? There aren't a ton of landing spots where there is no one waiting to be the starting QB.

Our QB situation is a fireable offense.  We cannot evaluate talent.  There are plenty of serviceable QB and we sign kids the entire baseball team could replace in terms of arm strength.  I am not kidding.

Been looking at the latest Bracketology updates of both Joe Lunardi and Jerry Palm (as of January 15th) and the latter lists Middle Tennessee and WKU in his field of 68. 

Of course, I realize the respective RPIs of the C-USA frontrunners are likely to suffer as the season progresses but nice to see more than just one conference rep on a list for a change!


clt bets we are “last 4 out”

Id be curious for an avid college basketball fan that is not from North Carolina or old cusa team fans to answer when was the last time we were "relevant".

Well I see this as a multi tiered answer.

When were we last relevant? Football - I think opening Day of the first season.  You know it's like the bright shiny car when you drive it off the lot.  We had publicity and energy.  As far as competitively, we have never been relevant in football.  Basketball - we were last relevant our last year in the original Conference USA. 2005.  That was the last year we made the NCAA tournament. 

Now, what does success seem like to me.  I've got a short term and long term answer and they're kind of related to each other. 

In the short term, success for football will mean getting to that bowl eligible consistently and getting above .500. In basketball, short term success would be getting one of the top 4 seeds and getting a bye in the tournament.  Being a ncaa bubble team, maybe NIT. 

Now quickly in both sports, we are going to need to be relevant in both sports before the Power 5 conferences split from the NCAA.  We are going to need to be good enough that they consider adding us to one of those conferences. I think long term success for basketball would be like the late 90s.  A team that's always in the running for conference championships.  A team with a home court that no team wants to enter.  A team that consistently makes the NCAA tournament and wins a game or two. For Football, I think a team that qualifies for bowls, not the bowls at 6-6 but gets to 8 or 9 wins and plays in decent bowl games.

Price contract: https://agent49.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/Price-Mark-Contract-2015_03.26_final.pdf


Okay, as I ready it we will owe Price about $500,000 ($250,000/yr through 3/2020), less any income that he earns during that period.  The interesting thing to me is section 12.3 where it says the "COACH must mitigate payments from UNIVERSITY by making reasonable effort to secure compensation at some place other than the UNIVERSITY."  I am sure that "reasonable effort" has a legal meaning, but this certainly seems like an out to pay Price less than $500k.

No way I started this question to be negative


I don't think any of the responses have been negative.
