Ask Woody about his 48 point game at Illinois

(I've moved on from Cig's speech, I agree it won't make a difference against Mich and OSU. Just speaking Bulletin Board Material as a VASTLY OVERRATED AND IMMATERIAL concept)

fixed it for ya.

Read an article that our new QB coach Tino Sunseri started building a relationship with him when he was a grad assistant at Alabama in 19-20.

That’s good but (I don’t mean to be a smart azz) I’m guessing anyone with a recruiting relationship with this kid will also have to have a seven figure bag of $$$$  to land him.

 

EDIT: who knows, if he ends up somewhere with other high end QB’s, and he doesn’t get on the field,  maybe we will be his second stop.

A certain recently fired IUFB coach just got a sizeable payday, but that'd probably be kind of awkward.

Why would people pay the Indy Star for the same info they could get by simply watching the presser? I'm serious here, I don't think he wrote anything that wasn't covered in press conference.

Same, this article was written like it was an insider take about what happened but it was mostly just taking quotes from the press conference

I agree. What I would love to know, but doubt Dolson would share is:

when did he decide to make a change 

who was in his initial list

when did he first start making contacts (I know we can know this but would love to know)

did Cigs turn us down only to have us come back with a better package or did he counter and he had to go work on it. 
 

these are things I thought of when I saw the title of the Indy Star article but you are right there was nothing new in it

So it sounds like so far we have 

Curt Cignetti - HC

Mike Shanahan - OC

Bryant Haines - DC

Tino Sunseri - QB/Passing Game

Bob Bostad - OL

Pat Kuntz - DL

 

Looks like a damn good start to a staff  

 

 

Plus his strength coach, Derek Owings, and his assistant HC/ST coach, Grant Cain.  Those have been mentioned in this thread already.

Here's a link to his JMU staff since it looks like a lot of them are joining him.

Several wore multiple hats, which I will imagine continues. So Shanahan as OC/WR, Haines as DC/LB, Cain as AHC/ST/TE.

Idk if any of the guys he brought so far fit the bill, but I’d like to see an assistant or two with some west coast ties. Playing 1-2 games a year out there means we’ll have a footprint, and you need someone with connections to those areas. There is so much skill talent to be had. Like Miami, LA HS football is very cliquey among the HS coaches and who recruits their schools.
