    FYI on Lanning

    247 Georgia staff that has major connections at UGA said he has heard nothing that leads him to believe it will be Lanning. Drumm is a fanboy. Stop listening to him. He might finally get one right but the guy said it was 100% Venables just a couple days ago.

    either way, OU needs a coach now. Lanning isn’t leaving the CFP before January.

    It could still be lanning and could be announced Sunday BUT I don't think it'll be lanning.. at least not for HC but I really know nothing. With all the Venables talk I'd almost have to believe it's him. Again.. due to conference championship games if it isn't announced tomorrow then you'd have to think the guy's current team will be playing Saturday. Knowing that helps to narrow down the possibllities. I'm hoping OU will open up the check book and hire a strong defensive mind as HC and he in turn hire a strong like minded defensive guy as DC and hires a well known strong offensive minded OC. Keep DeMarco Murray, Cale Gundy, and maybe Cain, dump the others and start anew.

      Georgia fans just don't want to lose him. :)

        Maybe keep Thibs for DE coach?

          I fear that Bedenbaugh will remain, which means the Texas Tech connection will not be 100% severed. Really need a fresh start at the OL coaching position.

            Bedenbaugh was a Stoops hire. He was the architect of the GT counter.

              I don't think Bedenbaugh is the root of that problem. It was Wiley.

                We'll know soon enough if he stays or goes I guess. Bedenbaugh arrived two years before Riley came in as OC and then Schmitty departed after Riley's first year as HC. So not a lot of data to go off of because of the close spacing of events. Wylie definitely sucked though. I hated the hire as soon as it was announced.

                  Yes, came from WVU and arrived two years before Riley did to be the OC. And was at Tech before WVU.

                    Didn't Kirby Smart stay on with Bama and accept the HC job at UGA? He did both...Lanning can too.

                      Bendenbaugh can recruit like a mofo and is 3 years from putting 3 guys (was it 4?) in the NFL. Let him work with a new S&C coach and OC...if he still sucks, move on.

                        Fair enough. I care about good OU offensive line units though, not how many individuals go to the NFL. I guess we can say that the last time OU put up legitimate points in a playoff game, Schmitty was still the S&C coach.

                          Different set of circumstances. That was before early signing day, before the portal, and the coach he was replacing didn’t nuke the program.

                            Nobody in Norman has any real information. I sure wouldn't expect anything to be known in Athens one way or the other.

                              Maybe now that LR is gone, Smitty comes back to OU? We could use someone to blame injuries on....plus..he's probably tired of all the jizz jars in the locker room, bathrooms, shower areas, weight room, trainers room, coaches' offices, concession stands......

                                34 vs Bama in the playoff 4 years ago was pretty solid considering we had zero total yards in the first quarter. They were completely overwhelmed early (William's was a stud and they had another dude with a weird name..bugg?)...but after they adjusted, they handled a really good Bama DLine for 3 quarters.

                                I get what you're saying but other than the DLine play this year, it's pretty apparent Wiley sucks. I'm on the fence too...if he leaves, fine. If he stays...fine too. Gonna be tough to replace his recruiting?

                                    I'm for getting a younger OL coach who is fierce and out to make a name for himself. BB was good for awhile but it's time to let him go..

                                      Fuck Schmitty. JFC no retreads. We can get someone who is way better than Wiley without going backwards. Schmitty's approach is totally outmoded at this point.

                                        Obviously I think Lanning would be a good choice, but I’ve seen no credible reports of OU reaching out to him or any other coach. It almost seems like OU knows they have to wait until CFP playoffs or maybe even some NFL candidates. There’s be no news anywhere. We’re all guessing. In the end, we’ll know who OU reached out to because they will get huge raises.

                                          My biggest concern is not just that the OL has sucked (which it has, but maybe that's S&C problem) - it's that Bedenbaugh seemingly takes half a season to figure out who the best OL group is. That's inexcusable.

                                                  Bob Stoops mentioned that he thought it would be Monday at the latest. I agree that Lanning will not be the guy.

                                                      Don't you think the longer this goes on the more likely the next HC is someone potentially heading for the playoff? If it's BV then he could be announced now and skip Clemson's meaningless bowl game.

                                                      Surely Joe C was working on a contingency plan back when he thought he was outbidding LSU.

                                                        I don’t think any Georgia “insiders” would admit, before the biggest game in program history, that anyone was leaving. They will deny, deny, deny, until the truth is known. One way or another.

                                                        I think Lanning and BV are the serious candidates. I think. Truth is, nobody but JoeC knows for sure.

                                                          If it is Lanning, he can accept on Sunday and still coach the Georgia defense in the playoffs. Many coaches have done that before.

                                                          I know OU isn’t waiting until January to hire a coach.

                                                            When you are out recruiting I think having a list of players you helped obtain an NFL career comes in pretty handy.

                                                              either way, OU needs a coach now. Lanning isn’t leaving the CFP before January.
                                                              The program is in Bob’s hands for the foreseeable future regardless. You could name either guy tomorrow but if it’s Lanning, he can’t be all in until the CFP is over. Bob has to take whatever bits of information he can get from Joe C about the new staff to salvage the roster and recruiting. That’s a very tough job for a guy who should rightfully be on a golf course right about now.

                                                                Meh… I just question how good he is anymore. I don’t think Tech has anything to do with it. Bedenbaugh hasn’t run the wide splits and pass pro stuff Tech does here at all. Mike Leach actually told Bedenbaugh and Riley to shut that shit down when they suggested adding a run game element to the Air Raid offense. Leach believed his system isn’t broken and not worth fixing. THAT is the kind of guy we DO NOT need. Oklahoma needs a strong presence in the run game.

Bedenbaugh hasn’t run the wide splits and pass pro stuff Tech does here at all. Mike Leach actually told Bedenbaugh and Riley to shut that shit down when they suggested adding a run game element to the Air Raid offense. Leach believed his system isn’t broken and not worth fixing. THAT is the kind of guy we DO NOT need. Oklahoma needs a strong presence in the run game.

                                                                                      I lean towards BV as my first choice. Personally, we should also hire Lanning as our DC. Give him a big raise and let him run the defense. That would allow him to prove himself outside of Smarts shadow and make him more marketable as a HC candidate.

                                                                                      Make it happen!

I guess we can say that the last time OU put up legitimate points in a playoff game, Schmitty was still the S&C coach.

If Leach wanted somebody to be a royal asshole to the OL guys, then that was a perfect fit for a year. Remember, ANY success Oklahoma had offensively in that first and only year with Mike Leach was going to be celebrated. Boo Blake would’ve killed a man to have the clusterfuck of an offense like we had last year.

LR calmed the fires immediately about the Air Raid concerns. He basically said personnel and his old boss overrode whatever he wanted to accomplish in the run game at TT and ECU.

If Leach wanted somebody to be a royal asshole to the OL guys, then that was a perfect fit for a year. Remember, ANY success Oklahoma had offensively in that first and only year with Mike Leach was going to be celebrated. Boo Blake would’ve killed a man to have the clusterfuck of an offense like we had last year.
