Possible new OC

You know you've reached rock-bottom as an inveterate BK hater when you're propping Chip Long, as sort of the final, last bit of scraps that you might be able to leverage into some final spasm of BK bashing. I believe we went 31-3 without Chip Long, with Rees taking his spot before BK left.... But no matter, BK hurt the ND football program yet again, and sabotaged CL's efforts during his brief stint at OC....

Possible new OC

He averaged 38 pts per game! He left because Kelly was too conservative and he felt to meddling in the offense. He and Harry had a very good relationship as well.

Fwiw some people report Morehead turned down bama for oc job. It seems unsubstantiated, but if he turned down bama to stay a HC then he isn't likely coming to ND as OC
I thought I read Chip was not liked by any of his players. A real hard ass who didn't know how to teach 18-21 year olds...

I thought this board hated TR?

TR has largely been hated by the ND heaving masses. But when he stayed, and snubbed BK, he got back into the good graces of many. And however much he's hated or not, he's the #1 player of the BK era, even over Ian Book, on account off his extensive playing career, where he played and started way more than was likely or expected, pretty much playing a key role all four of his seasons as a player, including being a full-time starter for two years. And then of course his time as a trusted assistant, all of those seasons coinciding with ND/BK's great run from 2017-2021.

I've never really particularly warmed up TR on a personal level, but his contributions are absolutely indubitable. And if he flourishes at Bama over the next few seasons, which I'm more or less expecting, if for no other reason than Bama is still Bama and are likely to keep right on rolling, he could turn around and become ND's coach in fairly short order, on the off chance the job comes open....

You help me ?
Now that is funny !
I don’t need help and if I did, you’re not smart enough to offer sage advice.


I don’t “think“ I’m right, I “know” I’m right !

YOU were the one who was wrong on several issues concerning Kelly, LSU and the payments.

But rather than admit you didn’t know what you were talking about you attempted to divert the focus away from Kelly and LSU by attacking me.

But that didn’t fly !

You’re too stupid to understand the nuances, legal and non-legal, associated with the Kelly-LSU issue

Tell us again how the payment was illegal

Tell us again how Kelly would go to jail

You’re a misinformed, misguided moron !
Pat, you need to calm down and stop with the name calling. You've been warned.

Rees is not all that & that is not my opinion but that of many

Totally. If he does good at Bama, and say he stays for like three years, and they win a title, and it's three good, successful years.... And MF is about to be fired, let's just say if after four years at ND, he wasn't getting it done and we were winning no more than 8 games a year and so they fired him.....

They could totally hire TR at that point. I don't know if it'd be smart or not to do it, but he'd have the credentials, I would like to think, that he could be considered a serious candidate and they very well could hire him. And we'd owe it all to BK. Who brought TR into this world as it were, to be a viable coach on the CFB scene, even at his young age....
That's certainly one scenario.

Alternatively, Rees could succeed SABAN in three years or so.

And here's one thing that's never discussed. Was Rees not FREDO in the succession sequence at ND? Was he not in fact "passed over" in favor of Freeman, ND's MICHAEL?

Thing is, I don't see Rees as a FREDO. Instead, he seems ambitious and GOAL-ORIENTED. And who knows what particular LONG-GAME he's playing?

It's going to be interesting watching this all PLAY OUT.

Rinse repeat. Drivel. You think you’re right. No one cares but you. So I am done trying to help you
Since you won’t get help here is some sage advice

In life, it’s important to know when to stop arguing with people and just let them be wrong.

I’m glad Tommy is gone. I was hoping Freeman would have fired him. I don’t think Tommy is bad per se, but I think he could use more guidance/mentoring. I think going to Alabama is the best thing for him. He didn’t have anyone to hold his hand when Kelly high tailed it to LSU. It was evident. Force the ball to Mayer as much as you can was pretty much every game plan. I’m ready for an OC that is able to dissect a defense and adapt in real time.
