    As far as the B12 getting outpaced... seems like the ACC is on the rise and could possibly overtake the SEC as the dominant conference before too long. Clemson is on the top. VT and Miami are on the come up, and jury is out on Taggart at FSU.
    Grier should be good and I expect Murray from OU to emerge. Overall it just looks ugly on paper imo.

    Kliff is a highly regarded QB coach that can’t close. Recruiting had declined for 4 years straight. It is pretty tough when you are on the hot seat. The crazy thing is how the QB recruiting has been handled. We had Tisdale ready to pull the trigger and turned him down. We thought we have Zeno in the bag but he has cooled and looks to be interested in the Georgia offer. We just offered another good QB from Abilene, so hopefully that goes well.

    Funny you posted this, Danny White just got a raise 2 days ago to bump him over Moos on a rolling 5 year deal.

    Worth. Every. Penny.

    That is very good to hear. Kirby is a very good AD. I'm sure I'll get push back on that statement but this guy has elevated so many things with the athlete department. He was in a tough spot last season with Kliff still being there for sure but the rest of his watch is absolutely exemplary.

    The decision that was made to keep Kliff was based off of the extreme improvement of the defense, Kliff being of the highest character and things being ran the correct way. One thing that sets Kliff apart is his commitment to integrity and education. Sadly he hasn't found the juice to get the team over the top. I don't know if he ever will. He doesn't negative recruit, everyone else does. He has the personality of a dead fish and is very closed off to everyone around him which is another thing that hurts him. Another 6-6 season is the absolute worst case scenario. I am so hoping that he can pull of at least eight wins this season. Honestly, the defense should be top 3 in the Big 12, anyone that knows anything about this team knows what a miracle that is. Oddly, the offense is what is the biggest question mark. With bringing in Johns to help with running game we shall see. There a big time questions at QB and RB which doesn't help. The current staff is the best that Kliff has ever had...probably too little too late. Kliff is a really smart, dedicated guy but I don't know if he has that special juice to take the team where it needs to go. Recruiting has declined even more this season.

    That is my take on what is happening and how it relates to Kirby.

    You only have to ask me if you don't know if Kliff can do it.

    I have about 35% of my faith left in the situation. I just hate to see the way things turned out. The OJT required for him to get to where he is should have been expected. What I didn't expect is how much of a dead fish he would be.

    The dead fish thing is overrated. Talking to Scott Frost is liking watching paint dry, but his public persona and how he is with the players is different and those guys would have ran through walls for him. Hopefully for Tech Kliff has a similar effect.

    The recruiting, on the other hand, is concerning.
