    Franklin has had great offense at previous stops and Shafer has had great defense for other programs.

    For 13 out of 14 seasons, Stockstill has produced middle of the road results with different coaches and players.

    That said, the Raiders won't win 10+ games until Stockstill improves as a head coach or someone else takes them there.

    Sad part about this is, Stock dictates what goes in the weight room as well, At least he did with Russell Patterson, our high school strength coach knows him and would tell me about what was going on. Stock wouldn't let him do any lower body during the season which is kin of crazy.

    Have other schools pay for the departure. Add one or two body bag games a year and buy him out. Don't make a donor use their hard earned money to pay for a mistake. That money should be used for the students and facilities.

    That is where you make it hard. You want to keep coaching and not step down? YOU are going to have to earn it with lumps.

    Can Massaro be an asshole to one of his own?

    The fact that Massaro went ahead and plugged UConn in the 2020 schedule, when he apparently had an option to shift uconn out to a future season, tells me the answer to that question is a big NO.

    We are getting a nice paycheck from Ole Miss anyway for 2020. Massaro could have scheduled another P5 for a million+++ bucks and had that as a cushion to work with. The fact there is not at least a second P5 payout in 2020 means MT is in worst shape revenue wise than in 2019.

    Good article.

    Stock needs to turn into his mentor Bobby Bowden - sort of the figurehead of the program while the assistants do the work. Hire some younger, hungry assistants who want to use this job to pad a resume to go to Alabama or the NFL. When's the last time we had an assistant leave for a P5 program? We have too many assistants who use this job as a day trip to the country club while padding their retirements.

    The recruiting isn't good enough. The position coaches aren't good enough (especially in the trenches, as noted in the article). The S&C isn't good enough. Player development isn't good enough.

    All these things are fixable, and pretty quickly too, even with Stock in charge - the problem is, he has to want to make these changes. I just don't see the desire.

    Hanging out with your old golfing buddies and going 5-7 is just too easy when you're own boss is ok with it.

    Those who have wanted a change for a while and those who are finally on board.
