There were a lot of job openings already when they fired Ruff.

And lots of dominoes to fall and staffs to be filled out. I figured we would have to hire an unproven guy and hoped it would work out . So far it has not . Giving Ruff another year would have possibly helped us line ourselves up early for a replacement candidate and the fan base would not be so splintered . Hindsight is of course 20/20 , but this move carried big risk .

If we were being honest , we would admit JC wanted Ruff gone and he was probably worried another year might give Ruff a 6-6 or 7-5 and he would not be able to fire him then . He rolled the dice and came up snake eyes.

Without a sudden influx of cash, We will always be a school that has to take a chance on a up and comer coordinator as a head coach. Some work out and some don’t. We are pretty much at rock bottom so I don’t see much risk in rolling the dice on a new guy once again.

Maybe I got this all wrong and Mo and Peterson are the answer here . It sure as hell does not appear to be the case , however.

I will be in my seats and will cheer on my team as I always do . Win or lose.
