Re: June Jones

If June Jones really has put his name in, I wouldn't be surprised. If you're looking for a job you want to have several offers out there for leverage. So? First of all there's money. At Hawaii and after he's made more than 800,000$ a year. If we could offer 200,000$ I'd be this time surprised. Then...

Re: Let the speculation begin

Remember Jones' interview with SI, especially the quote that he had a few calls but nothing will happen until the end of November or the first part of December. Wonder how much he knew about PSU, UNLV, Montana, OSU, etc. :-o

Re: Let the speculation begin

With all due respect to other posters. I think our unwillingness to expect more from the coaches is part of the problem at PSU. I'm not suggesting that constant nagging and picking apart the staff is helpful, but I would suggest that without a press corp that follows the team and reports on them, t...

I dunno. His last year at Army, running the self proclaimed "Brock Bone" offense, ended at 110 of 119 FBS teams in total offense.

Re: Let the speculation begin

I mentioned him a little tongue in cheek. I don't believe that he would be hired at PSU even if he was interested once the vetting started. 80-17 at Montana should be good enough to get a look at least in the early stages. The main issue is we may not be able to afford him. He also may want to go b...

Re: Let the speculation begin

I think proven head coaching experience is a must. We need a coach who can grab attention with his name or can create enthusiasm in the public one person or group at a time. We need offensive fireworks on the field for a fun brand of football. Right now that really points to June Jones or Mark Spec...

Re: Let the speculation begin

I still say we need someone who knows Portland State, knows Oregon, and knows the Big Sky. That person is Pflugrad, although the situation he found himself in at Montana may have soured him on coaching and he may like his cushy consulting job in Phoenix enough to never leave it. But I think someone ...

Northridge is not an easy place to get to, nor an easy place to play. I have to think this is a good win.

Re: Corban

Golpher: Torre Chisholm was to resign as the AD on Oct 31st of this year. On October 13, however, PSU appointed Valerie Cleary as the interim AD. She is the AD until and unless another person is hired. PSU has a AD and your posting is both pompous and ignorant to say the least. For someone with suc...

Re: time for this staff to go

Now time will tell if Nigel Burton has any class and offers his resignation. Or if he is so egocentric and insists on continuing to remain as head coach. He needs to leave. Right or wrong, the question is that, if the word is out there that our football program is on its last legs, what coach would...

Re: Viking Tales: PSU-EWU Game Story

- To add injury to insult, we send out eight guys to defend the point after. Yes eight. As in three less than the eleven that we are allowed. Well prepared teams, no matter their record or physical ability to compete do not make mistakes like that. That is a lack of coaching. Every single player sh...

Re: Looks like we'll be playing at Hillsboro next year

The Timbers wanted this weekend free in case they were playing in the playoffs (someone can cue Jim Mora's infamous playoff rant here :lol: ).

Re: Viking Tales: Burton, Barnum on almost signing Vernon Ad

It would have been interesting with Adams here, but I don't know if he would have been able to develop as he has at EWU. EWU has a great history at developing quarterbacks (Erik Meyer, Bo Levi-Mitchell). For us, it seems our quarterback plays until he has a bad game, then someone else plays until th...
