I don't think anyone who takes the job is going to be worried about how the delusional "fan base" judges them.Who would take the RU job if they really believed they wouldn’t be judged successful unless they got to the Rose Bowl? There are too many other Head Coaching jobs with much easier tasks.
Other ADs don’t exist in a vacuum. They face all sorts of pressures from the Administration of their schools, boosters, the press, the fan base.I don't think anyone who takes the job is going to be worried about how the delusional "fan base" judges them.
They're going to worry about how all the other Athletic Directors would judge them. If I can get this hot mess to a bowl game, or at least stop the bleeding of 50-0 conference beat downs, I can get a better job.
Of course, if you can't stop that bleeding, you're head coaching days are probably over forever.
Someone will take the risk. But likely someone trying to rebuild a reputation, not someone trying to initially build it.
Two current coaches who might make the girls better are Joe M and The Meat Head Dazzler.I don't think an up and comer takes the job. Too much downside risk. An established guy, with millions stashed away already, who doesnt have many opportunities is going to get the nod. They'll ensure they get 5 yr guarantee at like 4M a year, and that 20M contract will be there retirement parachute when they get fired in year 4 after 8-10 total wins.
So, now they've convinced themselves that Devito wanted to be at Rutgers? LMAO. Not a chance.I thought: that's awesome, I wonder what they're saying about it?
"Russo, QB at Temple, and Devito, QB at Syracuse and Flacco, QB at Towson all wanted to be at Rutgers now ... but they weren't good enough"
That's enough internet for the day.
It's going to be interesting what happens with that team over the next few months. I could see a lot of guys transferring away from that disaster if they don't hit a home run with the next hire.taken from the ru board "2nd hand word from Archbishop Wood Catholic is that Blackshear is done at RU and will look for a hardship transfer to play in 2020."
Now hold on - if Schiano comes back, he will instantly insist on cancelling all existing OOC games against teams with a pulse. Every season will start with bottom tier MAC, bottom tier Sunbelt, bottom tier FCS team. That’s how you ‘chop wood’ Schiano style.but he wouldn't be able to do his "We're 3-0, we're 3-0" speech because Rutgers will never be 3-0
