    Yep, he was going to Ole Miss or Arkansas.

    Kiffin’s time at FAU- success and advancement up the ladder is a perfect model for what MT should strive for.

    Good question.

    watch FAU hire Joe Brady or some other progressive, driven HC. And we keep slow and steady Mr 500

    Look at the bright side. It’s now $5 million instead of $6 million. :eek::eek:

    Im sure they will and will probably win another CUSA championship before we even win one, but hey at least Stockstill and his buddies get to continue their free ride, while sucking the University dry of its resources.

    Wondering what the impact will be on today's cusa ccg? FAU favored going in, but the news that kiffin is leaving is sure to have an impact. Not that kiffin cares.

    I would not recommend that CM and DB launch any more direct mail campaigns or conduct dialing for dollar telethons by student athletes asking for donations until coaching changes are made and announced.

    Not sure what you are referring to? Though we live out-of-state, we are long-time season ticket holders in FB & the 2 B-ball programs. And BRAA members too. Though this last year I specifically directed which sports received the $$$. The only contact, via mail or phone, we have received was a hand written thank you note from a Lady Raider athlete. We get weekly email game day info during that sports season. That’s it.
    I know there is some love on this board for DB, and will admit, anyone would be an upgrade over who we have. That said, DB has been around 16+ months. He sent out a long-winded letter when first hired, that’s the last I heard from him. If his job title includes development $$$, shouldn’t he be in regular contact with people who regularly support the program?

    Re : Development

    I wonder if BRAA / MT's development efforts are more focused on building relationships with more substantial donors rather than cultivating a culture of giving by all supporters of the programs and institution

    It's a completely different approach than the school I attended for two years of my undergrad. A few years ago, they had the highest participation rate of "giving" by alumni in the nation (almost 65%).

    I spent a True Blue Level donation amount of money on a bottle of whisky today. Of course, Pappy 23 vs giving a dime to support mediocre Massaro et al.... it was an easy choice

    I think I might open this bad boy up when MT win’s the conference in football. So I my son may inherit an unopened bottle when he is 21.....in 19 years.

    I'm in my late sixties and I am hoping I get to see one football championship before I die, but I'm afraid I won't outlive Rick Stockstill's contract.

    If you don't outlive Stockstill's contract, make sure you request Rick and his coaching staff as paulbearers so they can let you down one last time.

    Space, I wish you many more years of life and happiness, but this made me laugh. It’s too bad our life spans can’t include automatic renewal provisions.

    That's what happens when you beat North and South Carolina, keep your team in the top 25, win a conference championship and 11 games. That dude is a big upgrade but he will take the rest of Appy's staff that Satterfield left there for Drinkwitz to win with. Appy st. is gonna have a bare cupboard now unless they throw some major cash.

    and yet, it won't surprise me at all, if App wins.3 conference championships before MT wins its first cusa championship in football

    I'm calling it on Drinkwitz that they are way overestimating his abilities. I really don't know anything about the guy, but 1 year in charge of a Sun Belt team is a huge gamble for Missouri to hire him. He wasn't even responsible for a full recruiting class. So coaching another coaches players and he coached a limited number of games at a lower level.

    I predict that will not end well. Maybe it works, but it's way too much of a gamble.

    Taggart to FAU looks to be a done deal.

    talent won't fall off much, if any. Coaching? Even CRS is a better coach.
