There's a presidential election...

There's a leap year...

There's a Summer Olympic Games...

Syracuse goes coach shopping...

2004: The fans turned on Coach P after a 107-59-1 record.

2008: The guy who came after Coach P was sent packing.

2012: Marrone bailed on the program for his next dream job.

2015: Shafer was dismissed after 3 years.

2020: Dino is circling the drain right now. He got his 4 years plus one of Shafer's.

Who's the guy who gets fired in 2024?

*Bonus points if you can guess who gets fired in 2028?

Sad but true. Could be the position not the coach?

I met your wife. I got the distinct impression that she can handle this with no problem.
She can, just the emotional attachments to coaches really get to her.
Especially Babers.

Interesting framing. So Syracuse and JW, at the fans urging, signed Dino through the 2024 season. I read some articles today from when he signed. It would appear that there was a bigtime "fan movement " with the hashtag #pay Dino. So those of you that want Dino dumped this season, I think you are out of luck. Read Dick in Michigan's post in the coach or player thread, he is spot on in his inputs. Second, whether you think it should matter or not there is a very real financial impact of the buyout.

Babers isn’t getting fired this year.
Emphatically agree 144%.

We need to take the same approach to Dino, that Duke (another program that had to dig out of a decades-long dumpster fire) did with coach Cutcliffe:

Coach Cutcliffe is highly regarded, and now an institution at Duke
In spite of 4 straight losing seasons, and then just getting to .500 in the 5th one.
(He’s also in the midst of what is likely going to be his 3rd losing season in the last 5. Duke fans aren’t brandishing pitchforks and torches like our “fans” are.)

Dino *could* be that for us, IF our AD allows him the time to do so.
He’s already had one breakout season, and did so MUCH faster than Cutcliffe did.

Cutcliffe is also regarded as a very good offensive mind. Dino is not. We grabbed him when the go fast trend was in style. I don't believe he's implemented anything unique to it.

IMO we need an offensive system that can't be derailed by cramps. Someone that has created or improved on something. If we can't get the recruits, we need to be different in some way. George Deleone and the freeze option at it's peak.

Babers is not getting fired

this year is due to a lot of factors, it’s the 93 defense combined with the 2014 offense

the defense is way too young, the offense has some pieces but can’t sustain it and the qb is done.

this roster if it started the year complete would be at least 3-2 right now, but it didn’t so they aren’t
