Remember how good I said getting a Power 5 athletic director was for LU.
LU didn’t start from ground zero

With all due respect Bronco Mendenhall at UVa and Justin Fuente at Tech, I think that with Hugh Freeze, LU now has the best college football coach in the state.

Somewhat controversial thought, is there a grad transfer QB out there that could be brought in to compete for the job? Not looking for a full blown controversy but it would be nice for the new staff to have more options. Maybe it would push BC to his prior form?

I have a sneaking suspicion that the guys on the roster are going to get a quick initiation into Big Boy football. That will be all the motivation and push these guys need, hopefully

You guys keep saying that but I watched it and don’t recall him saying that.
And realistically, who cares. Whether LU is the next ND or not, the SEC will always be the mecca for college football. Let's enjoy him for the few years we've got him.

“This hiring season certainly felt differently so I don’t think the same stance was as strong if there was a stance but I’m not sure that there’s still not … I think it was wise for me to move away for my family and the conference and hopefully one day get an opportunity to come back.”

That's what I'm saying. The next few years will be interesting and hopefully fun, so let's enjoy it.

Haha. I still could see Freeze staying for the long haul, 5+ years once he’s here and we establish ourselves as a legit P5 type independent. The Lord could speak to him and this truly be the place his family not only needs but wants. Who knows. Enjoy it while it lasts.

Define most? More than 50%? I can name five current coaches who are poachable, and highly so.
