    Huh, so what happened to Les Miles visiting MN. Maybe he just wanted a trip to the Mall of America.

    Good for Randy, he was a good defensive coordinator. He never should have been elevated to head coach, but I am glad to see him moving up again.

    Oregon FB dodged a bullet not going after PJ Fleck. His press conference at Minnesota today was completely absurd

    Yup... will get old if he doesn't win.

    Is this true that Houston hired Mark D'oNofrio as defensive coordinator? I can't believe that if it is the case.

    Always thought Fleck was youngish, but he minimally appears middle aged in the Minnesota picture. Turns out, he's 36.

    He really does sound a lot like Diaco, but with a bit more sanity.

    Fans of every AAC team should be giggling as well. I don't understand how you are as bad at your job as he was, then unemployed for a year, only to get hired as a coordinator. I saw this guy's work in person...and I still can't believe what I watched. It's hard for me to believe they couldn't have come up with a better hire.

    This makes me worry about the impending DC hire here at UConn.

    True but Fleck has proven success as a HC. I wouldn't bet against him.

    He seems pretty adament about remaining in the NFL even if it means being an OC. and couldn't he get a better college gig if he waited until next year?

    I say get the band back together -- Chip/Helfrich at Cal. Same division as Oregon. Better recruiting base. Lower expectations.
