Chances are better this week. Up from 18.2. Yay.


Well, you'll be delirious then, the following week, when espn gives MT a little over 40% chance against north texas ...

That's about as good as it gets, as far as espn is concerned about MT's chances of a win the rest of the way...

I’m not claiming to be privy to inside information but someone I trust has indicated that something may be brewing. Whether or not it’s enough? We can only hope.

If the move doesn’t involve Massaro retiring then I have little faith in the outcome. Firing Stock would just result in Massaro hiring and I have better faith in my 3 yr old picking our next coach than Massaro.

With this crew, the move could be Stock taking over play calling or maybe let West make the D calls. Those move would really get us competing.

I have zero faith in Stock as a play caller and West leading the defensive side...West’s units have regressed under his tutelage

Just make a call to UAB and So. Miss and ask them how that worked out. Or better yet, Memphis in 2006 when he fired Joe Lee Dunn after game 3 at ECU and “took over the defense” then lost 8 in a row.. Finished 2-10 and 108th out of 119.

There is a reason he didn’t move on to the NFL like most guys his age when they hit the twilight of their careers and don’t have to recruit but simply fine tune / teach the pros from their “wealth of experience.”

I don’t think anyone would be unhappy with Schafer. Franklin, on the other hand.....

FIU may have a starting QB from Tennessee, coached in High School by Jonathan Quinn, former MT and NFL QB, who coached Norton to a 2018 undefeated record and state championship while playing for Davidson Academy (Nashville, Tennessee)


But according to Stock and Chip in yesterday’s presser, “we really recruit Florida well with over 17 guys from FL on the roster. Florida has a lot of good players with good HS coaching.” Yet, FIU snags a QB less than 30 miles from Murfreesboro who played for a former Blue Raider.
😂😂
Beautiful.

The best Florida football is 1-4 corridor south, they can kiss it with all the sunshine pumping.

so can we sign Quinn to be O.C. next year?


Quinn, IIRC, was OC at a lower college division MidAmerican Nazarene for a couple of years before stepping up to be the Head Coach there for five years where he was pretty successful, before returning home to Nashville to coach HS ball.

The hits just keep coming. It's like watching the old Dean Martin roasts. One laugh after another.

FWIW, dnj's Spears might as well be working for the MT SID


GoMiddle staff > DNJ & Tennessean combined.

Tyler in one article provided better investigative journalism than Joe has in his entire time at the DNJ.

"Head coach Rick Stockstill and his staff have done a terrific job the last few years of recruiting heavily in the state of Florida..."

Half from the area that i was talking about, how many are truly contributing? how many are legit 3 star guys? Seems like when Diaz, Mangum, Ellis were here that's what we saw coming out of florida.
