Alot of similarities between the 2. Both won the top asst award. Both get snagged by better teams.
People here want to pay more. But. I believe knowles wont have it. Go to a true bb. They paid him1.8 mil.
Riley i guess in most peoples eyes made a side ways move, since clemson is not a bb. Left for 1.7 mil.
Who was a bigger loss. Not just in there play calling, but recuriting. We know that knowles left with alot of guys leaving. So is riley. I know at least the qb 2 rb and the top reciever are going pro. I believe the lose some lineman.
Which is the worse loss for eavh school.
Side bar. Kendall briles is rumored top candidate. Making 1.3 at Arkansas. With discontent with briles at Arkansas. Like when we got mason.
I think Riley is the biggest loss of the two. He’s young, had success, don’t know how well he recruited at the frogs but i would say he did. Riley is going to a BB as long as Dabo is there and it’s not a lateral move but move up. If he has success at Clemson he will be the next hot head coach out there, especially the rise Maxx made. He was average to below average for: 3 years.
Could be 2 or 8 but Knowles will be fired/let go
He made us really good for a couple of years along with some special players for us
So yes Riley is my answer. TCU is losing a bunch of proven players. He hit gold this year
Haven’t heard about cincy on the coach. Dana had 1 nice year in the big12 and 1 at Houston. Going toba p5 mite change who he can get at Houston. Byu is byu. The sleeping giant is ucf. Cant have tcu have another great year. Them being in the metro plex.
Im worried with our tv draw the big 12 my try and match up with the bigger boys. We are play 9 games.
A lot of different variables for each coach, but you bring up a great discussion. I suppose it will depend on how quick TCU can reload next year and whether or not Ohio State can re-do what they did this past year. Plus, does Riley have a guy at Clemson at QB already the starter or will he have to find one? Next year’s results will tell us a lot.
I’m not positive but I think the Clemson QB was a freshman for them this year. If so and Riley develops him I think he will get the first BB opening or one close to it. He hit lightning in a bottle this year with QB No 1 getting injured and Duggan starts. That is just one bit of the luck they had alll year. Duggan and Johnson being gone next year will be a blow
He wouldn’t have done as well as ‘21, but may have done slightly better than Mason. We lost too many on defense to portal/graduation for him to repeat ‘21. But maybe if he stays, some guys don’t leave in the portal. I cut Mason a lot more slack than Dunn.
I do love how you get stuck in defending coaches with subpar performances with the argument of keeping them, and seem to have no problem bashing coaches that the BB schools picked up that were successful. Stop being an idiot for a day if you can.
Then I guess the coaches at Ohio State and Georgia must have simple views as well. Because they wouldn’t take a chance on anyone they wouldn’t think could help their program. Get a clue for a day as well if you can.
