RE: LA Tech down to 2 coaches
Bowden is a retread...I'd rather not. Things were farther with Malzahn than most here will ever realize. It was not a yearly salary issue. He is reported to be getting a raise, but we could have easily topped what he made last year.

Anyway, I don't think it will be Nix or Monken. Look for a "surprise" hire that most Tech folks will be pleased with. If it's who I think it is, he sports a sweet stache too. That's just a bonus.

Where did this "retread" come from, I have seen it on quite a few post recently. IMO a thoroughbred will be a thoroughbred experienced or not, and a donkey will be a donkey inexperienced or not or not. Just try to avoid the donkeys experienced or not.

Bowden is no thoroughbred. His specialty is great athletes that tend to have chaffed wrists.

Tech fans ought to remember him well. He quit the Auburn job less than 24 hours before playing Tech in mid-season

Wilson would be a good hire, but not better than Malzahn would have been. Don't kid yourself, Malzahn is a star in the making and the only reason Auburn did as well as they did this past year. He will go straight from there to a BCS job.
BTW, didn't I hear Wilson's name in conjunction with the ECU job? Could LaTech outbid them if it came down to money?

They must secretly envy the Belt or just miss being associated with their ULL/ULM in state kin. Or maybe their WAC brotheren could care less about what is happening with them. At any rate, for folks who claim they want "seperation" they seem to have a difficult time staying away.03-banghead

RE: LA Tech down to 2 coaches
no we get involved with the sbc board whenever the sun belt fans get us involved in it. so far its working out nicely. see if we don't inform you of what is going on here sun belt fans will start rumors that we made some god awful beneath us hire. Like for instance we will wake up to read on here that we have hired Dodge or something unbelievably stupid like that. As far as Gus Malzahn goes, I guess he would be a great hire as well but I dont get what everyone is wetting their pants over with his offensive schemes. and if he is a genious, and i am not saying he is not, why not get your feet wet as a head coaching job somewhere. much bigger names than Tech would have hired him. why wait. sec jobs just dont come around every day. oh plus our board has been crashed for two days. I have been hearing more about Tech here and the LSU board than I have been able to get through our own board.
