    Exactly. And maybe we would have hired him instead of Tom Herman and we'd now have 2+ more national championships and be in the playoffs most years.

    But....
    Much of the fanbase seems to think we're hiring a swimsuit model instead of a football coach. Swimsuit models should apply for "Director of On-Campus Recruiting" positions...

    Mangino was fired because a couple of players whined he was mean to them and the parents got involved. He probably wouldn't be a good coach for the woke crowd.

    I did read a couple of years ago that he had lost some of the weight.

    Please. Mangino had horrid anger issues that rightfully got him fired. He'd have lasted about a year here before going out in a ball of fire.

    It's like when the hobbits go out into Middle Earth for their great adventures and accomplishments, but after all that, they get to come back to live in the Shire to be big shots for the rest of their lives.

    At first I laughed, but then I realized this is a pretty accurate analogy.

    Howard Schnellenberger has passed. RIP.

    From the Wiki article:

    "Schnellenberger arrived to a Miami program that was on its last legs, with the program having almost been dropped by the university just a few years prior. Drawing from the boot camp methodology learned from mentors Bryant and Shula and a pro-style pass-oriented playbook not yet the norm in college football, Miami developed a passing game that allowed them to have advantage over teams not equipped to defend such an attack. By his third season at Miami, the team had finished the season in the AP Poll top 25 twice—something that had not happened there since 1966.

    Schnellenberger revolutionized recruiting South Florida high school talent by building a metaphorical "fence around South Florida" and recruiting only the "State of Miami." His eye for talent in this area led to many programs around the nation paying greater attention to south Florida high school prospects. Under his "State of Miami" plan, Schnellenberger's teams took the best from the three-county area around the city, went after the state's best, then aimed at targets among the nation's elite recruits; it became a model of how to recruit in college football.

    He coached Miami to a national championship in 1983, defeating Nebraska in the Orange Bowl."


    Howard Schnellenberger dies, coached football at Miami Hurricanes, FAU

    You can delete that before I get a four week suspension. Excuse me now while I go throw up.

    One good thing is your post will keep all Sooners off the board for weeks if not months.

    Let’s be equanimous, you didn’t know Shellie while he was in Miami.

    If Schnellenberger was such an a-hole why did your friend work for him a second time?

    Lots of $$$. He and Rick were friends, and Rick was the second only to Leon Fuller as the best DC in the country. Rick knows how I feel about Schnellenberger, and the two of us were never in Jupiter at the same time.

    The only thing good I can say about Schnellenberger is that he mellowed in his old age, and his teams were not nearly as dirty, and he didn't didn't cheat nearly as much at Florida Atlantic as his other stops.

    What he did at OU was beyond description> I am stunned that he made it out of Oklahoma alive. Talk to some of your friends north of the Red about his tenure and departure.

    I'm glad he cleaned up his act the last few years, but I do not know the total extent of that "cleanup".

    I thought it strange to leave Miami as soon as he won the MNC. Very strange.

    At that time no money, no budget, a job nobody wanted (and still doesn't), and most of all out of control gangsters & drug dealers roaming his sideline.

    He left to take a job with a USFL franchise that folded before playing a single game. Orlando I think.

    Too bad. Schnellenberger was a pretty good coach from what I could tell and had at least one NC on his belt. I didn't realize he was 87.

    aTm -- Jimbo has brought in Antonio Cromartie (former NFL player - Chargers, Jets, Colts, Cardinals). Cromartie will recruit and be a defensive grad assistant for now.

    KU - the Jayhawks continue to beat (not whack!) the bushes for a new coach. Jeff Monken (Army), Willie Fritz (Tulane), and Lance Leipold (Buffalo) are rumored to be near the top of the current list of candidates. Fritz has a background that includes stints at SHSU and Blinn--so he can recruit at least the Texas guys that UT, OU, aTm, LSU, etc. don't want. Fritz has done well at Tulane. Monken is an interesting possibility. Defending the Army-style triple option will take a lot of game week preparation on the part of the opponents. It also takes a disciplined "assignment" defense to shut down or hold in check. (either that, or constant disruptive penetration in the backfield to mess up the handoffs and QB reads. It's also a way to at least partially neutralize a talent disadvantage. Emmett Jones is still KU's interim coach, so there's a possibility he stays on.

    Sounds like a villain on "The Blacklist".

    Isn't Willie Fritz originally from Kansas?
