    Exactly. I would love Gruden, Stoops or Kelly but there's nothing to suggest that any of them could do it. I think one of those gives a good shot at it, but anyway

    If we don't get Stoops, he's one of my two fallbacks. I think he's a really good coach who would do really well here.

    Someone is going to have to explain to me how Kelly is a guarantee to win.

    He won in the Pac 12 at a time when his closest competitor was Stanford.

    He was an abject failure in the NFL.

    His offense, while once cutting edge, it now much more normal.

    And, he's a stupid cheater. Not a cheater (I'm fine with), but a stupid cheater. In a conference where cheating is paramount, we're going to get a guy who can't even do it well?

    No thanks.

    I think we'd have to pay top dollar to get Mullen. Like make him the second highest-paid guy in the conference. Not sure he's worth it.

    I disagree. Dude's a solid coach, and in Starkville, no less.

    The more I think about Kelly the more I wonder if he would actually win much here.

    If he was hired I wouldn't throw up arms about it, but there are a few question marks. The SEC is just drastically different from the Pac 12 he came from.

    In 2016 he lost at home to a South Alabama team that went 2-6 in their conference.

    He's already pretty well paid at MSU.

    I don't know this source, but it's the quickest one i could find, so it must be trustworthy.

    Saban $11mm
    Sumlin $5mm
    Freeze McElwain Mullen Bielema Jones $4-4.5
    Smart Stoops O Muschamp $3-3.7

    Haha at Bama for wasting all that money on Nick.

    EDIT: said source https://www.boydsbets.com/highest-paid-college-football-coaches/

    He's 6-3 all-time against the top ten. He's finished in the top five every season except his first.

    He might've made a national title game by beating up on the Pac-12, but it's not like they were overwhelmed once they got there.

    That his offense didn't work in the NFL isn't something I'm going to hold against him. Different game.

    Everyone not named Nick Saban is robbing their school blind.

    I missed Malzan, who is between Sumlin and that next tier.

    He, Freeze, Mullen, and McElwain have demonstrably better results than the guys in the same pay grade, IMO.

    Miami signs Drew Brees instead of Culpepper, he may be counting Super Bowl rings instead of national titles

    I don't know. I also heard he just couldn't get millionaires to do what he wanted vs 20 year old kids. I think he would not have gone over well in the NFL after too much longer. But I will never know, now.

    Ssmiff Thick like Quaker Oats. AKA chubby.

    why did he retire? I srsly don't know. Assumed he was burned out from it all.

    I think he had just been there so long that it was time. He was smart to get out before they ran him out of there and on a high note, as well.

    Spurrier also knew when to gtfo of Dodge.
