Glad to see after mentioning his name 3-4 days ago that it is finally catching on.
He would be a homerun hire IMO.

Muschamp is waiting on Hobby's answer. Thompson gone because he got his butt handled to him in the XT and original Belk recruitments.

The ONLY thing that would concern me about him is that he moves around a lot, so there is a decent chance he would only be here 1-2 years.

I'm not saying anything bad about him for it, just that as a USC fan are we better off getting a coach that is great, but is only here 1 or 2 years or taking a chance on an up and comer that would likely be here at least 4-5?

With Burch and the 2020 class... give me great for 1-2 years to get these guys signed... then kick the can down the road to 2021 and search again if those are my 2 choices.

Big if true, means Champ really wonít accept mediocrity and knows he need to improve defense pronto.

1-2 years of a sure thing is certainly much better than 4-5 years of potentially mediocre.

Just depends on if you're right or not. If you're right it's the up and comer., especially because if money is comparable more often than not the up and comer will stay loyal The established coach is the safer pick.

1. Play our experienced DL out of position
2. Play true freshmen

So let's not blame Thompson for the DL play this season. He worked with what he had.

However, there were clearly some things going on in the background that we don't all know about. I think we can also upgrade the recruiting efforts there too. Whether it's Hobby, Davis, Jones, or somebody else, I trust Muschamp to get the right guy. With some more depth up front next season, I think you'll see a much improved DL unit.

Just going off what I saw, you donít have to agree. Teams regularly gashed us right up the middle, which is the A gap last I checked.

Yup. They retained their GM and HC (Doug Marrone) but fired their RB coach, OL coach, secondary coach, and DL coach. That usually means the head coach has a season at most left to salvage their job. Definitely a disappointing season after last year.

I understand how important recruiting is. But with all the guys we’ve got on the DL now, many with a ton of potential, I think we need someone that can develop those guys, and that may be the most important thing over the short term.
