What About Joe Moorhead?

Recommended Posts

Ya'll, I get Joe Moorhead is beloved in Akron for what he did during his time here, but he was fired from Miss State in just 2 seasons (despite 2 egg bowl wins) for a reason. His overall record was 14-12. 8 of those wins came last season win an immensely talented roster he took over. He didn't have control of his locker room. His starting QB got punched out by a teammate during bowl prep - and was out for the game as a result.

 

Obviously I don't have a crystal ball, but "the stars not aligning" may have very well been a blessing in disguise long term.

Truly one of the most DUMBSHIT posts of all-time.   You know-nothing about what went on Mississippi State, and if you knew anything about Joe Moorhead, which you obviously do not, you'd never make that post.  The SEC West is the most difficult division in college football and the Mississippi State budget is the worst in FBS.  Joe coached him up and they won 8 games, which was down from 9 the previous year under Dan Mullen, and the Bulldogs finished ahead of Auburn and Ole Miss.  In the off-season he had to replace Luke Getsy who was his OC, and that set them back having a 3rd OC in as many seasons in 2019.  If you had ever played a down of college football you would realize that switching OCs in 3 successive years is a death notice.  Joe got fired because he is not a BS artist and actually shoots truth instead of deep south double-talk.  He's now choosing between OC gigs at Notre Dame, Oregon, and 3 in the NFL, so I think he will be ok with the LZIP endorsement. 

 

Truly, delete your account if you can't bring more than that weak take to the table.

Moorhead was another guy who always struck me as a douche bag on a personal level. Ego the size of Texas, and he's another guy who would just use this job as a stepping stone. Also, his offenses were good in comparison to what we've seen the last few years, but still didn't put up close to the numbers of Winters. Edge to the true Akron guy.

Winters > Moorhead

 

Another complete douche know-nothing take.  Nothing against Paul, but you think there may be a reason why he has never left DII Wayne State? The 83-84 head coaching record and 70-78 mark in conference play probably has something to do with it.  That's the problem with so many Zips fans... totally conditioned to mediocrity and willing to settle for people who played here once upon a time. Winters is 61 and he is never going to be the head coach of the Zips so truly, leave it be.

 

Getsy, Frye, Blackburn are all coaching at a high level... get them back.  Wake the f up.  Plenty of time to think about it with Arth's contract running another 4 years.

Your opinions are well stated but stop being personal in your criticism. Show some class and let your knowledge speak for itself. This isn't a political site where it's expected that you attack someone's character. Just educate and correct. It may make you feel better or superior when you call someone on this site names, but leave it at home. Let the reader be the judge.
