Yes.  Sparty is falling in a huge way.  Will be interesting if Tucker can (and is given time) to right the ship.

The track record is abysmal for P5 Black Head Coaches.  Th have been largely unsuccessful.  What has Tucker shown previously that gives an indication that he will buck the trend?

Never thought of it that way.  No indication Tucker will buck the trend.

Herm seems to be doing ok at ASU, David Shaw at Stanford...can’t think of any more examples off the top of my head.

Well the only guy on your list that tasted any success is Willingham.

Off your meds today I assume?

And although not D-I, there was a guy named Eddie Robinson at Grambling State University in Louisiana that was pretty good.  This talk against black head coaches is sickening.

Has anybody mentioned James Franklin at Penn State?  What about Tony Dungy?  Herm Edwards?  Mike Tomlin?

Lovie Smith at Illinois is going just fine.  It maybe took him a few years to right the ship, but didn’t they go bowling last season?

I'm thinking Carson will be just fine, may get some more offers as season goes. That is if there is a season.

Actually is D1....D1 FCS.....not D1 FBS

Read where Eddie Robinson turned out over 200 of his players to the pros, including the NFL (including the old AFL before the merger) and the CFL.

Valpo isn’t D1.

Correct....it is why Valpo state it competes in NCAA Div 1 Football Championship Subdivision...just as CGH indicated.

I do believe the Pioneer Football League is the same as Butler, and does not provide athletic scholarship $$.  Perhaps that has changed.  Great school.

BTW, the previous terms were D1.  Prior to D1 FBS and FCS, it was D1-A and D1-AA.

That is correct. Both schools are still in the Pioneer. As non-scholarship programs, most of the Pioneer is equivalent to good D3 or NAIA. Most of the players are still all-conference/all-county type players, but usually struggle to compete against top FCS teams. San Diego has dominated this conference and won a couple playoff games however.

Lots of noise about Minnesota being the landing spot for Booker:   

Steve Wiltfang of 247, gave the ole Crystal Ball to Gophers 

https://247sports.com/User/Steve Wiltfong/Predictions/?PlayerInstitution.PrimaryPlayerSport.Sport=Football&PlayerInstitution.PrimaryPlayerSport.Recruitment.Year=2021

 

Sure did....100% with a 9 high confidence....

If so, he would be following former Trojan Nate Wozniak's path....had a nice career for the Gophers including some time with PJ Fleck.
