Resign him and keep deteriorating. Look at his last 2 years. We've beat nobody good. Nebraska was cool but they were 4-8, bad. We barely beat them too. Took2 fluke pick sixes.

And our botched punt that gave them any life wasn't a fluke? We get it frank..get some new material

I never used the punt actually but yes that was a terrible coaching decision you're right.

This is new material. I never brought up the weak Nebraska win.

Since I had not seen it mentioned here, there is a poll on Hustle Belt for the 2017 season. Right now it is neck and neck between B and C.

I’m not sure you can use the word “great” to describe his recruiting. Good maybe. But it’s not like we have had a class that is considered the best in the Mac. Being ranked in the top quarter of the Mac in recruiting really is not a flag of greatness

In the end when you evaluate a coach isnt it about wins and losses?
Conference performance with your peers??? Who have the same resources you do??

NIU has been in the mix for a west title or won the mac west title in all of Rod's years...and have beaten P5 schools with at leat 5 x times the salaries and resources that NIU has...and the nation wide respect other coaches have said about NIU being one of the "best" mid majors....listen to the ESPN announcer for the NIU-Ohio state game......nothing but praise..with NIU being in the game with 2 minutes left....

but oh, he has made ridiculous coaching decisions, ridiculous judgement of talent, offended the media, lost 5 bowl games, beaten bad p5 teams... blah blah blah....

I once had a grad student in 1998 who graduated from Notre Dame. He told me that "he didnt even know NIU had a football team"......that is how bad it was in 1998.........you need perspective on all of this and look at the overall picture

C'mon. I am sure most Notre Dame fans STILL don't know we are Division 1.

Yeah winning MAC is not even factor let alone MAC west. West is like big ten east, whoever wins, wins championship doubt he'll play a majority of the more talented underclassmen to make a difference.

I think that's G5 advantage. You can play right away

I am in the camp of keep him and do not want to return to the 90s of losing game after game and the program is a complete joke......

But the QB that played against Nebraska got benched after one bad game.

It wasn't even a bad game, Special Agent Bond. It was two bad decisions in what was actually a very good game if you took those mistakes out.

Yes, those mistakes were crucial, however we were moving the ball up and down the field. What Coach Carey fails to realize is our defense, as good as it is, will wear down when they are consistently on the field because our offense can't sustain drives. We saw that happen this season.

You mean a rush up the middle for 2, a sneak up the middle for 1, and a incomplete pass isnt a time drainer?

Who cares? If coaches "know" who the best qb is, how come Tom Brady and Brett Favre only got their chances because of a qb getting hurt..?....


This is such a silly post, Triple J. Both Favre and Brady were just starting their second season in the NFL. Brady was playing behind a pro bowl quarterback in Bledsoe, and Majikowski was a decent NFL QB, although by no means spectacular.

More importantly, there is a very large learning curve between collegiate and NFL football. Although we see if far more now, in the Brady and Favre era, young quarterbacks rarely were handed starting jobs.

Favre and Brady's insertion into the starting lineup was accelerated by injuries to the QB's playing ahead of them, however it's comical to imply that was the only reason they got their chance to play. They both would have found the field eventually.

You sure about that sustained drives? NIU wasnt in t top 50 of FBS for time of possession or 3rd conversion rate.
