I feel like if Muschamp doesn’t make a change somewhere on the staff, the fans may revolt. That bowl game was pretty unacceptable and the fans have the right to be upset.

Hope we can hang on to lance. Would be into hutzler leaving and lance bumping back to lbs and get lawing or whomever muschamp wants. Defense was bad but was gutted. Offense playing like trash post clemson is what has me salty. Werner coached bad bo wallace too, you know.

Makes no sense our DL is about to become a strength and all the big names we have gotten in the past 2 years are credited to a coach you guys want gone aka Lance Thompson. Someone please explain this to me as soon as you can thanks.

Bo Wallace did beat No. 1 Bama, you know. Seriously though, itís cheap to point out one inconsistent QB he coached when heís also done very well with many other QBs. Werner is definitely worth keeping.

My guess is that it's a carryover from last year when he lost us a recruit or two because Pruitt showed texts from Lance trying to get a job at UT. That combined with Travis Jones becoming more attainable, Bo Davis' show cause coming to an end, and other candidates out there led to this. It's partially optics, partially looking for more of a technician to come in and elevate the DL, and partially Lance hasn't lived up to his recruiting expectations.

I think you are confusing position with primary recruiter. Just because he is the DL coach doesn't mean he's close to getting credited with all DL commits. The vast majority of the guys you named he was the secondary recruiter for. Highest rated kid he has landed as the primary recruiter at USC is Kinlaw who was rated a low 4 star at .8979 so he hasn't lit it up.

We won't hire Lawing. There seems to be some type of "principle" argument against it. Meanwhile, our biggest rivals do anything and everything they can to win. That's why we are where we are.

Principle and he isn't the guy he was back in 2012. He wasn't a high energy recruiter back when he left, you think he's gotten more energetic? We got some guys on the list who are technicians.

Not disagreeing with your point, he definitely was the secondary recruiter on those. But we battled Auburn for Kinlaw until the very end and Thompson wasnít on the USC staff yet. If Iím remembering correctly. Kinlaw stated USC needed him more and Muschamp was still on the Auburn staff.

I'm assuming Lance is gone. I'm not convinced he ever wanted to be here and somehow Muschamp worked him into it.


Lawing aside, give me 3 or 4 names to look up as possible replacements.




And part of the issue, I think, is what Muschamp has seen like we have seen--these dudes aren't technically sound. I'll accept that our LBs maybe slow and or D line maybe young, but that's no excuse for poor form and positioning. It's technical issues that are lacking and that the position coaches are expected to fix--not the head coach.

It was Alabama, not Auburn, and he signed (as a JUCO) Feb 1, 2017, so Muschamp had been USC's coach for some time. Initially, he signed December 23, 2015, which was a few weeks after Champ had been hired. He was, however, recruited out of high school by SOS and his staff. Alabama didn't offer until 2016.

Don't look for any major changes until the new prez takes the reins. He/she will want their own person as AD. That person will want their own coaches.

That was pure betrayal to the Carolina program. So why do you want a coach that has already stabbed you in the back once to stay on board?

You do realize that the BOT that are hiring the new prez are the same BOT members that RT has become very close to. I can easily see the BOT hiring a new prez with the condition that he keep RT.
