It wouldn't be ECU unless you want to live in a land of overgrown grass and strip malls.

It'll be brought up in every thread every year until he leaves. I can guarantee you. It's the new "FBS or Bust" infection on our message board.

It will be brought up every week one way or another. It's relevant.

If Houston leaves after this season for average or below G5 gig, a la Withers, or a non HC job at a P5, we've got our answer about JMU's conference future.

He may stay a few years if he is waiting on a mid-atlantic ACC gig if JMU treats him well but don't forget we are dealing with JMU, JMU will not pay top dollar for a sports coach.

I wonder if they were looking across the field for who that might be.

Yeah. That seemed to be the feeling. Heard a lot of chatter in the stadium in the second half and after the game to the effect of "why the **** isn't THAT guy our coach?" We need to enjoy this ride while it lasts.

Are we going to post about Houston leaving JMU all season? Just enjoy the job that he and his staff is doing and the performance of the team. It's like the media- you squawk about it enough it may actually happen. Truth is none of us know what Mike Houston is thinking and how long he will be JMU coach. He could be the coach to stay at JMU for 20 years keep getting raises and take us FBS- you never know.

If every thread about the team and Houston is going to devolve into - he could be the next ECU or whomever coach- it's going to get tiresome to get through all season.

Yes sir. Sorry sir. Anything else you don't want us mentioning?

ECU's current coach makes a million dollars a year. ECU fans at the game (were you there?) were openly discussing the fact that they loved the way we played and wished they had MH. Let's ignore it though.

CAA to AAC might be a bit too much of a jump for the ECU muckety mucks to swallow (NDSU's three-peater Craig Bohl left for a $750K job at Wyoming, after all). But ignoring the possibility makes it more likely (not less) that he leaves. I'm thinking specifically of Kenny Brooks as I say that.

Well, if we're going to go down this path, someone start a "who's the next HC".

Dude, unless you're a million dollar donor, what do you expect? It's not that JMU "will not" pay top dollar, it's that they can't. Simple as that. However you want to break it down, we're a stepping stone program and if somebody gives the guy $3 million a year or something, I'll wish him the best and root for him. It is what it is. Hopefully he has an ambition to finally take us up to the next level and we can retain him and pay him.

Congrats to JMU for soundly thumping my Pirates. It was more than humbling, it was humiliating and that's a credit to your coaching staff and players. I wasn't one of the ECU fans underestimating JMU but collectively we deserve to be kicked while we're down so fire away.

I should not have used the term top dollar...I meant JMU already stretched for Withers and Houston at $300K. JMU won't widen the pay gap between football and the other sports.

Look at history, wrong or right, JMU won't pay up for a coach.

What do you think will happen, assume JMU runs the table which is tough but could happen.
