  1. Welcome Tom Arth!

    I don't know that any of the previous staff would be kept, but Wattley and Nemec are two that would make sense. They're local HS football coaches without any legacy ties to Bowden. I'd think they have some great value.

    I can't see it working out any other way. By the time 2025 rolls around that will be a 1.5 million dollar payday. Maybe more.
  3. Game 10- Marshall Thundering Herd

    Ok, now I see Banks in street clothes too. Wonder what’s up?
  4. Game 10- Marshall Thundering Herd

    Banks nowhere to be found? Toles in street clothes?

    I disagree. There's a point where you're waiting too long. And I don't think there will be a bevy of talent remaining after this upcoming week's signing day. At the beginning of this year Bowden wasn't expecting to get fired. He had a lot of redshirts and gray shirts sitting out 2018 in expectation that he'd be coaching them in 2019, so it will be interesting to know how many scholarships are available. Maybe half the class is already on campus? Then we need to see how many incumbent guys bail. I look at Jabari Arthur's story, and the change from Owens to Brookhart really pissed him off. He wanted to transfer. And it ended up being the best possible thing to happen to his football career. I hope once our new coach is selected, the incumbent guys take a deep breath and interview the new staff themselves before making a their transfer decision.
  6. I think accepting the CBI or CIT invitation depends on your team. I would loved to have seen the Dru/Rome 25-win team get any sort of post season chance to strut their stuff. I'm sure they would have too. But for other, disinterested Dambrot teams it was a complete waste of money.
  7. Five Questions for Prospective Coaches

    I just fired the coaching staff that won the MAC East in 2017. How are you going to make me look like I made the right decision?

  9. Possible Candidates

    I wonder if they got Huff and Getsy screwed up?
  10. Possible Candidates

    In football? They haven't had a decent coach since Don James. You could make arguments for Dean Pees or Doug Martin, but they fired them. So even when they hire a decent guy, they're too dumb to keep him. Darrell Hazell? Two seasons at Kent. Bombed at Purdue.
  11. Possible Candidates

    Why is it so unfathomable the Kent State could pass on a good football coach? They've never shown any acumen when it comes to judging coaching talent.
  12. Possible Candidates

    So you think we'd wait until almost 2 weeks after National Signing Day to announce our coach? I'd be horrified. We shouldn't be in a hurry to select our new coach, but we need to be quick. If we didn't have a coach named by Monday December 17th I'd be profoundly concerned.
  13. Possible Candidates

    Zips are always enamored with Notre Dame re’sume’s. He’s gotta be the front-runner.

  15. The Beer Thread

    Still looking for a gift for that discriminating beer drinker on your list? Had this 2 nights ago. Maybe the best barrel-aged beer I've had to-date.
