He means leaves Liberty, obviously. Which, i imagine he will, going to Auburn most likely.

He loves Iowa and left Wisconsin on salty terms. Bret is would be an asset.

Since Bret has gotten really fat I dont know if he's still a good HC, but there is a nonzero chance that he could turn Illinois into a decent program. And we dont want that.

He really only had the one bad year at Arkansas, they went to bowl games years 2, 3, and 4.

The current front runner for the Auburn job is their DC Kevin Steele. He coached at Baylor from 1999-2002 and put up a 9-36 record including 1-31 in Big 12 games.

I cannot imagine they paid the $21.5 million buyout for him.

They had someone lined up before the firing. Guessing Freeze or Mario Christobal.

Apparently Steele has a great reputation with boosters.

I agree it doesn’t make a lot of sense, but that’s what everyone has been hinting at.

I think of most morbidly obese coaches as being successful. Mangino, Friedgen, Toledo Tom...

Charlie Weis is the only one who I can think of who was a huge (intended) disappointment, and even he had his day in the sun.

Honestly, the morbidly obese coaches probably have their priorities in order. They aren't wasting their time working out or eating sensibly. They quickly eat their double quarter pounder combo meal and get back to work. These people value the team over their own vanity.

That is why they need a shower in their office bathroom.

Diacobatuka!!!


post-2012 i thought there was a pretty good chance he was going to be Iowa‘s next coach. Kirk seemed done and ND’s defense looked great, Bama aside.

Bret will be useful. He won't be an auto win anymore for Iowa, but that means he won't be an auto-win for anyone. In the years you do beat him he will fuck up Wisconsin or Northwestern and help make it easier to win the West.

Taking over for Alvarez in Madison, WI is vastly different from taking over for Love Smith in Champaign, IL. He is about to find that out.
I'm sure he's totally unaware of that.

If he wins it a few times in the next 5-7 years like you think, that really cements Iowa in third/fourth place in the West. Frost looks incompetent so we stay above Nebrantska, probably Minnesota, and Purdue.

I really like Kirk and can’t figure out why we can’t get over the hump a little more often.

Iowa recruits a lot of Illinois kids. Feels like this will hurt a little
