You know that saying, "Be nice to people on your way up because you'll see them again on your way down"? If Holgorsen finishes in the bottom half of the Big 12 a couple more times, his next stop will be at one of those CUSA or AAC programs he just slammed.

If he falls on his face he isn't likely to get an AAC gig unless it is a coordinator position.

That's going too far. Guys who are well-thought of get second chances. Even if Holgorsen finishes 7th in the Big 12 twice and gets canned, he would still be preferable to at least a few of the AAC coaches (and several of those schools have hired second-chance guys before).

Granted, an offensive coordinator position at a wealthy Big 5 school might pay more, but if he wanted another shot at a head coaching job, he'd get one.

I'll agree with you if you agree it was stupid for ECU to vote against the stipend.

Ecu did it for legal reasons. Just because everybody wants to do something doesn't mean its right.

Nothing but class from a Pitt fan.
One of the few good things I have seen from this whole realignment mess is WVU fans not having to go to the stadium the Steelers are nice enough to let you borrow to see our team play.

UConn is a peer academic institution with Syracuse & Pitt, and there's not much love there.

But at least no one from Syracuse or Pitt have made a stupid comment (like what Holgorsen said) about UConn.

RE: Holgorsen is an ass.
The advantages ( public funding ) WVU has received are much more than what ECU has been fortunate enough to get. Being one of only 2 schools playing football in their state makes for a pretty small pond... Not too hard to be the biggest fish there. The argument of superiority just isn't credible to me coming from such a privileged situation especially considering we were in the same conference around 1960.

RE: Holgorsen is an ass.
I think alot of WVU fans are worried about this football season. With all the big guns now gone, the coach will have to fend for himself so to speak. Many feel that WVU could end up winning one or two Big 12 games and watch bowl season from home. Not to mention Bob Huggins and his basketball team are also looking very weak for the upcoming season. It's turning out that no one wants to play for a coach that is screaming at his players on a daily basis. At the end of next year, it will be time to ask WVU fans, "how's that move to the Big 12 treating ya"? Tack on the unbelievable mileage each team at WVU must travel west and it's quickly making the whole scene a disaster. Only time will tell. After this year, Holgrosen may be gone.

Wait. What? The main attack Hologerson critics make is that he is too relaxed not screaming all the time. It may be a down year but it has nothing to do with Holgerson. Bill Stewart's recruiting after Doc Holiday went down to Marshall was atrocious. Why do you think WVUs D was filled with redshirt freshman and JCs last year? Now if the 2014 team is weak then there may be a problem but he is going to get till then. Outsiders saw smith, Austin and bailey and thought that the program was loaded. In reality it had a very weak on the o-line and obviously on defense. The Stewart regime just flat out missed on a lot of kids. Its fine to be crictical but try to have some idea of what your talking about first

You mean "would have been" at one of those CUSA or AAC programs.
