    Ugh. Another high powered offense. We better be building one hell of a defense.

    Damn Rich Rod and now Mike Leach..... Was hoping these schools would hire **** coaches, but instead they are hiring legit coaches. Pac-12 should have some firework games in a few years lol. I think some score boards better be ready to hit triple digits.

    These.

    Are people forgetting our last road win before last Friday was against Leach?

    Also I just don't see him attracting the same level of talent to Wazzu that he could pull to Lubbock.

    At least he is in the North division. We'll only have to play Leach on the road once every 4 years (sans championship game).

    :stupid:

    I don't think he's going to find recruiting to Pullman quite the same as recruiting in Texass, even in Lubbock. It should also be interesting to watch his team chucking it 65 times in the middle of a November Pullman blizzard. I'm pretty mystified why he chose to go there. Seems like there were going to be some other options that would have suited him better.

    Are there a lot of fat girlfriends in Pullman? How about pirates? These are important factors.

    Poor Wulff. He is like the rebound chick for a dude(WSU) when his chips are down. The rebound chick does a good job of getting her man back on his feet and his confidence back up. Then he dumps her for the hotter chick.

    And he made his living out of scheduling easy OOC games and playing in crap bowl games and e won't get the same talent as he did in Lubbock up in Pullman.

    guy won 9 or 10 games a year. he made his living learning from Hal Mumme and being the OC for Bob Stoops in 99.

    i remember Tech assblasting a very good Cal team that thought they were BCS jilted.

    He's going to have a bigger budget than he had at Tech. He'll be on TV every week. He'll recruit just fine. The new media deal changes the rules. WSU is a better job than Tech now.

    But he also could recruit Texas for the UT and A&M leftovers and still get decent talent. Not quite the same pool of talent in the WA. Resources may be better with the Pac TV deal, but recruiting will not be as easy in Pullman.

    surprising but I really do not see him doing much. He has already had his 5min of fame - richrod I am a little more worried about

    He did pretty well against Baylor, not quite as well against OSU and A&M, and worse against OU and UT.

    Leach is a good coach and should do well at WSU. On the other hand it will have little impact on CU.

    Why did you make a pac12 coaching thread and then post pac 12 individual coaching threads?

    Because I felt an actual hiring warranted its own thread? It´s the offseason, Snow, for god´s sake. We need the traffic.

    ESPN is going out of its way to NOT credit Feldman with the scoop here, btw. Kinda funny ... and extremely sad.

    He would not be a bad option for CSU when they get around to firing Fairhawkins...

    In a very different offense.
