    I'm sure the focus was on recruiting the past few weeks more than hiring a new coach. I'm pretty confident that we will see a new hire in the coming weeks. Probably a linebacker or secondary coach. The opening has been posted as stated in another thread on here.

    That is probably true but our other SBC schools have seemed to do both very well like at ASU. Maybe they have someone in mind and know there is no rush? My thought was that we may be missing out on a good 'un by dragging our feet or we simply are not going to hire anyone.

Now before I say it let me make it clear i in no way want to go back. But FCS may be a better option if things keep going down this path. I do not want to be a doormat for every team including the Belt. As I see it with a big chunk of our Alumni giving money elsewhere(I have no fact to prove this but it seems like it is the way it is going) and funds are hard to come by to hire a staff worthy enough of "Big Boy" Football I see it as the best option. But for the love of all that is holy I hope I am not right!
    Guys, you bring up a very interesting discussion.

    As you guys say, maybe Troy just can't compete on this level from a financial side. In all seriousness, this needs to be looked at and studied. No sense in keep digging a deeper hole ? Maybe all the talk about changes and coaches pay is mute, since we could not have any money. (in saying this maybe the Athletic Dept budget will Not allow the Big Boy football everyone wants and since we don't have a B. Pickens or P. Knight...) Does anyone else have any thoughts / insight.
    No "keyboard coach" in that opinion, just plain old fashion eye balls and an ability to read, see and comprehend.
    You know, just plain old common sense.

    Milton McGregor is looking to re-open VictoryLand...He donated the first $1,000,000 on the new arena. Let's see if we can help him with another tax write-off

    Before the end of the trial there was discussion on whether MM would remain in jail if he was convicted. Alot of people thought he would be a flight risk if he got out of jail until appeals court ruled. Our very own Chancelor Hawkins spoke out for MM and said MM was a family man and a true icon in our society that would not run if convicted. Of course he also said he believed that MM was innocent. This was on the news. I believe it was some type of records to provide the court if MM was found guilty.

    MM will take care of those who had his back!!

    I bet Bob Riley is still cussin' up a storm right now...Milton paid for an ad about Riley frequenting casinos in Mississippi and we paid for the rest. A lot of jobs were lost behind this and I hope that they can be regained going forward...
