Re: Briles More Info

I posted about it in the other thread. It's weak as hell. Doesn't belong in an email. Letting the sins of 5 years ago neuter the football team is asinine.

I don't like this interim athletic director AT ALL, and the bar he's failing to clear is a very, very low one. Wouldn't let him wax my third daughter's second car.

Re: Briles More Info

Initial take away leads me to believe Hopson in fact staged this without consent from his superiors. Also, Bennett allows faculty and student groups have a loud voice for all things athletics. Which most, if any, actually attend games.

Not as I understand. Briles was flown from Italy to USM for his interview. Bennett, Hop, Mitchell and boosters in the interview. USM =  Bennett approved the interview and thus the flight.

There are things in this story that are missing. All the administrators had to do was say no in the beginning. It never goes to the press and all is done.

My gut is Hop makes it through the 2019 season and leaves on his own or USM sends him packing. Every "news" article is going to pin this on him. (Wanted to hire Briles who was associated with players charged with rape and recruiting a player that was charged with rape). This is all anyone needs to read to make a judgement on him.

Just like Collins, Briles and every other head coach that left or was forced to leave a program with controversy, Hop is gonna to receive full blame. He is the head coach and is responsible for his program no matter what happens, right or wrong.

My gut is this is a narrow partial truth to insulate Bennett, and sanitize Gilbert, Jr. who will be shoved up our a's.

And yeah, I agree that Hop will likely crawl from under the bus to take the first one out.

The OC hire reflects his exasperation.

Bennett is where the buck stops and he hung Hop out to dry.

Still don't think much of him or Gilbert, Jr.

We are so f'd.

Re: Briles More Info

I agree that Hop will most likely be looking elsewhere pretty hard after this season. He knows that Dr. B isn't going to support him and his decisions and also hang him out to the public.

Can't blame him if he wants out.

Hop is a football coach. He wants to win. He sought the best we could get. He did nothing wrong.

Re: Briles More Info

Sure does seem like Bennett "got a pass" from the faculty, students, and media. That's just the world we're living in. People are getting hip to it. We'll see if it's too late to do anything about it.

Re: Briles More Info

I will say this: I have not seen the fans so solidly behind Hopson since early in the 2016 football season. There is a deep desire on the part of USM fans to finally see something resembling real effort, and the perception is that Hopson actually did make an effort.

Interim e-mail boy comes off as a huge wimp, and Bennett comes off as a politician (which we already knew).

Re: Briles More Info

I anticipate an AD announcement coming within the next 10 business days.

It will not be Mitchell.

Nor will it be someone from Arizona or Oklahoma, for the record.




Or Spain
