Default PETRINO, WOULD YOU HAVE HIM

I know we spent allot of time talking about who our next coach will be in the offseason. I expect Spurrier to coach 3 more years (mainly to make Connor Mitch his masterpiece), and by that time Petrino will most likely have done his time in the NCAA doghouse and will be coaching again at a major D1 program, so this is probably a pointless assertion. I have made plenty of mistakes in life and am all about second chances. Petrino would be my first choice to take Spur's place. We would have another coach who beat us down for years leading us. Thoughts? Who else would be as good?

In a heartbeat...I don't care what he was doing in his free time. It sucks for his family that he's sleazy in that regard but that doesn't effect his coaching. I know I might be in the minority on that but that doesn't make him a bad coach. 20 years ago people were getting away with the crap they aren't now because social media and the desire by people for 15 minutes of fame didn't exist.

He'll be somewhere big enough that he won't leave in 3 years. But I don't think Spurrier will coach 3 more years either, probably 2.

I agree....first and foremost, they are there to win freakin ball games....all the other stuff is important and hopefully they have good human qualities, but again they are here or at any school to produce W's. Period.

Reminds me of when Brad Scott was here and he was about to be fired....we all were at a staff meeting...this friend of mine was going on and on and on about how wonderful a Christian he is, etc....I had about enough of it and I said, "Look I don't care if he worships Satan (kidding of course), a coach is not here to go to church!" The room erupted in laughter and Brad was soon after fired.

Default Re: PETRINO, WOULD YOU HAVE HIM

I'll go against the grain and say I don't want him associated in any way with Gamecock Athletics or the University of South Carolina. He's sleazy, and if he's cheating on his wife/family, he's cheating on his university, team, players, and coaches. We have been lucky to have some really good men of faith and character and high morale working at USC and I would like to see that continue. Tanner, Spurrier, Martin, Holtz, etc. I would like to see one of two from the current staff promoted, Elliot or Ward. If neither of them, Charlie Strong or a young up and coming defensive coach.

Quote:
But their relationship was full of turmoil. Mr. Cobble says the coach frequently questioned his willingness to do things Mr. Petrino's way, and was prone to criticizing him in front of fellow staff members.
When Mr. Cobble was hired, in 2009, he was told he reported to Bill Edwards, director of athletic training and sports medicine. But he and Mr. Petrino had arguments over his reporting line, he says, with the coach believing that he worked for him.
Mr. Cobble says the coach also questioned his medical abilities, was impatient with return-to-play times, and pushed back on physicians' decisions.
Things boiled over, Mr. Cobble says, after a doctor ordered surgery for an injured player. When Mr. Cobble shared the news with Coach Petrino, he says the coach suggested treating the injury with cortisone. The player got a second opinion but ultimately had the surgery. (Through a spokesperson, Mr. Petrino declined to comment.)
In early April, e-mails between Mr. Cobble and Andy Wagner, director of football operations, which The Chronicle obtained through a records request, describe communication problems among players and staff. A few weeks later, Mr. Cobble was called into a meeting with Mr. Edwards, his supervisor, and Todd Stewart, the athletic director, to discuss his future with the program. He was subsequently fired.
He wishes that Mr. Stewart, who would not comment on a personnel matter, had done more to stand up for him.
"He had a choice," Mr. Cobble says, "and truthfully, I think he went with the million-dollar deal instead of what's right."
http://chronicle.com/article/Trainer...s-With/141333/

this is one of the many many reasons i would never want that man to represent the University of South Carolina... there are much better, respectable and smarter coaches out there... i would have fundamental issues with our athletic department and athletic director if they ever even considered hiring this man ..

*for the record Danny Cobble use to work here

We could do better-

Also to those saying 2 or 3 years for Spurrier.... isn't that what people have been saying for about 8 or 9 years now? Good news is if you keep predicting 2 or 3 years you will eventually be right.

Yea, I'd like to think he will be capable of redemption and I guess I'd let Tanner make the call on if he's changed. If he has, I'd like to see him here.
