    The best thing to come out of this thread is the smarmy responses and the detour into a discussion over Coming to America, one of the best Rom-Coms of all time.

    I'm still not even sure what smarmy means but don't want to ruin my current thoughts by Googling it.

    I think it is supposed to be swarmy. Meaning unscrupulous.

    The NCAA FB Coaches convention starts this Sunday. I expect HCRE to have some ideas of who he might want a couple weeks after the convention.

    If Edsall needs to attend a coaching convention to fill out his staff we are beyond screwed.

    Really need to change job posting policy for coach roles. Either exempt them, as someone from finance or HR can not apply and get hired as linebackers coach or allow to hire during posting period as sure several coaches would have been officially hired by now.

    This is really a joke. UConn hires a part time coach that walked out on the team a few years ago. Is not here for the most important time of before recruits are signed and nothing on his coaching staff. Yet we have a fan base that is celebrating his arrival. And the administration is keeping everyone in the dark.
    Our fan base allows it to be run like like a second rate program so it won't change.

    Yeah, Joe Moorhead and P.J. Fleck were just dying to come here, but the second rate fans and administration made it not so.

    I agree with this part of your post 'UConn hires'. The rest is just junk.

    You are right. This is a Connecticut problem. No other state has civil service laws covering the hiring of state employees, and no other fanbase is impatient for things to happen around a coaching change.

    You deserve so much to have a better program than ours to root for. My hat goes off to you.

    And now that Jon Wholly has been outed as one of our coaches, are people satisfied that HCRE is, in fact, not just collecting a paycheck, but is doing stuff?

    Randy's contact list is extensive. Anyone thinking he needs to go to a convention to find coaches or that he hasn't had people in mind from Day 1 do not know about Randy. Let's not let the truth get in the way of facts. We will know who the coaches are shortly and even more importantly, the incoming recruits will know who his coaches are.

    Agreed
    Some dolts just like to post crap about P/T coach and other gibberish just to get a rise out of other dolts and try to pick up some likes
    HCRE has been in the game long enough to have a great rolodex but the secret is convincing them to come to Connecticut - hopefully he will have some cash to work with

    I am not by any means sold on Edsall 2.0 (as @WingU-Conn can attest), but unless you've been living in a cave for the last week and a half, the joke is on you.

    It's fair to be skeptical of Edsall. Nobody is "wrong" to be unenthusiastic about this hire.

    But some of these other posts are peak boneyard.

    I think you remember that referred to him as St. Randall and that some here hold him up to be the second coming of Lombardi. I was dead wrong about Diaco and I'm skeptical about Edsall 2.0, but I'm willing to give him at least a half chance.

    I can confirm that I am not part of the Randy Edsall coaching staff for 2017.

    Well, there's that opinion, an existing Lions' contract, and a media report Edsall was requested to continue his contractually-agreed work until the Lions' season ends. Not so sure the latter 2 considerations equate to "hugs and high-fives", but they may very well supersede one opinion.

    It's laughable how stupid your post is. If only your knowledge of college coaching was equaled by your's and some other bonehead posters pomposity. No, Edsall isn't going (and doesn't need to go either) but Benedict is, as will people like Mark Dantonio, PJ Fleck, Kirk Ferentz, Joe Moorhead, Paul Crist, Lou Holtz. They don't need to go either, but they do, every year.
