Everyone’s meathead gym teacher Pat Fitzgerald gets the gate. A bold move, as a Fitzgerald was a legend at the school as a player and, by the admittedly low bar presented by Northwestern, is probably the third best coach in the school’s history behind Ara Parseghian and Gary Barnett, and unlike the aforementioned two, was never going to leave and could have been there for another 20 or more years.

It goes to show what academia is like these days when Fitzgerald got nuked based on allegations from one anonymous and apparently despised member of the team who openly told teammates all he wanted to do was get “Fitz” fired. Apparently, the majority of the roster is pissed and the kid’s anonymity will probably be gone by tomorrow. Fortunately for him, no one cares about Northwestern football so he won’t be harmed.

Any case, we ought to be looking to harvest any decent player from what will likely be a torrent of departures. And while there is probably a dearth of decent players on the Notthwestern roster, we suck and our definition of decent is probably fluid enough to accommodate at least a few guys.

Btw… what happened to Fitz and Shaw is precisely why coaches should always be looking to move. They both had opportunities to leave but stayed at their alma maters… only to be shot out the door as soon as an opportunity arose.

The money doesn’t matter to A&M, some oil billionaire will stroke that check at the end of the year. What matters to A&M is making a rock star type hire to compensate for this disaster and the fact that no matter what they do, they are the unloved, academically inferior little brother to UT.

If Urban Meyer wants to make $25 million, all he has to do is bat an eye in the direction of College Station. They’ll probably throw in a 100 hot coeds for him to anally probe if he wants that in the bargain as well.

I don't think Harbaugh is going anywhere. If you don't want your signs/signals stolen by your opponents on the field, come up with complicated and convoluted signals.

What are the off-field problems? I only pay 25% attention on Saturday anymore, so I know nothing about what happens during the week.

(Also, didn't pretty much everyone on campus hate Daz on a personal level, leaving aside the plateau/diminishing returns on the field?)

Jimbo is done at TAMU. And gets all that money guaranteed.

I wonder if he’ll coach for free next season somewhere. Or double dip. Rovell says it’s not offset.

Coming off a 3-9 season where they totally meltdown down the stretch? Yea I think it's very possible. Addazio got fired in a similar spot with the same President. I don't recall Addazio also also having players mysteriously disappearing from the team or the "undisclosed non-injury" whatever nonsense. The media that covers BC is useless, so it's easier for BC to sweep this stuff under the rug.

Next year's schedule is pretty brutal, so you can keep him around for another year if you want, but he's going like 2-10 next year and getting fired.

what's up, bitches.

here is my three pronged (i know hansen will like that description) to getting jimbo to the heights

1. point out that some versions of some uniforms like have the same maroon color that he's been rocking in college station - so his wardrobe would be still in play. how many other schools can say that, and which ones of those would he want to go to over this shit box of a program?

b. c'mon man, how much money do you really need?

iii. only like 8 people in the known universe will be aware when you stop caring in year 2 or 3 of your tenure

with this three pronged plan (you're welcome again, hansen) that is all i have to say on boston college football, any other associated or unassociated athletic endeavor of boston college, or anything academic or related to boston college as a school, location, concept, construct, facility, community, organization, or foundation in any way. fuck leahy and anyone else associated with the place.

Fuck they’re stupid. They have two narrow losses to Alabama and Tennessee and it’s not like they’re below .500 even in SEC play, which is is second only to the NFL. When Texas and Oklahoma join, is every SEC AD expecting to only lose 0-3 games per year still? When you consolidate powers, they need to play each other. When two teams play each other, one must lose. That’s where Michigan and Ohio State will have a step up; they won’t have to play a top 25 caliber team every week. That Texas A&M doesn’t understand this and is willing to eat $76mil to gamble on another coach (which they will have to pay fat money to) is so stupid that it’s offensive
I like BC basketball.

Even Leahy/James know that this was BC's easiest schedule since the early 70s.

The tough schedule in 2024 is why they're keeping Hafley. Let him twist in the wind next year and leak the off-field stuff so that the new coach can show improvement in Year 1. If - by some miracle - he figures out how to coach, so much the better.

Not really relevant, but I found it interesting that Texas A&M hasn't won a national championship since 1939, which I hadn't known (i.e. before BC claimed its NC). They should have claw back provisions against the administrators who hand out massive contracts thinking a big name head coaches are the miracle cure.

Agreed.

Gotta feel like this is the moment that Marty is going to make a play for his previously successful, hand-picked Head Coach.

As much as Jonathan Smith just seems like he checks all the boxes, I have a feeling Marty and the UCLA faithful will have a hard time getting excited about that hire. I have a feeling he is going to sell them on a Junior Adams type from Oregon, especially if Oregon finishes the season strong.

From the UCLA media it seems like Jonathan Smith or Jedd Smith.

But, we know Marty, and that is way too boring. He is all about winning the press conference and hiring either middling P12 coaches doesn't accomplish that.

I totally can see him trying to coax Chris Petersen or Urban Meyer out of retirement or see what it would cost to poach Kyle Whittingham or Lane Kiffin. If he strikes out, he can always grab Brian Harsin from the scrap heap or tab one of his former favorites for the BC job (Hafley or Elko).
