    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!
    How big of a raise would you give him? He currently makes 1.8M

        Now that we know what was going on, I no longer blame the O line.

        The schism wasn't between LR and Grinch, it was between those coaches loyal to Riley and those coaches loyal to Oklahoma.

        Holy crap, I cannot believe I blamed the O line kids for not having cohesion and unity.

          It certainly can't be ruled out now regarding line play. There was definitely division among the coaching ranks and that in turn means division at the player level.

                That would work, plus he wouldn't have co-defensive coordinator title.

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.
                  Yep, it has to be Venable because of all our talk. JC interviewing and screening in super stealth mode. Everyone else speculating and talking.

                      Yes, that is correct.

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.
                        I loved the hire of Wiley.......the other day.........at the USuck welcome to LA celebration for Muleshit. Hearing Wiley was brought to USC was the highlight of the program.

                              It might turn out to be someone we ain't talking about. Nothing here would surprise me. I wonder what kind of money the university is willing to spend? If Lincoln was only getting around $7 mil and it was reported the university offered him $12 to stay would you think the next guy isn't aware of that and maybe want at least $10 mil? If something like that happens then what's left over to hire the big time assistants? It might take some serious money to get some of these guys that many on this board are talking about such as Lebby, Lanning, etc.. And that's IF they hired Brent V. Lots to be looking forward to in the next few days..

                                  So talking to my UTerus cousins during Thanksgiving, OU “stealing” Wylie was viewed by Texas fans the same way we viewed Texas “stealing” Jay Boulware.

                                    Bedenbaugh is from the Mike Leach coaching tree.

                                    Bedenbaugh played for Mike at Iowa Wesleyn.

                                    BB was coaching at Tech under Leach and OC Sonny Dykes.

                                    BB was brought to Arizona from Texas Tech by Sonny Dykes. They both coached under Mike Stoops with Mark Stoops DC.

                                    When Dykes left for Lousiana Tech, BB became a co-offensive coordinator with someone named Seth Littrell.

                                    He then went to WVU after Mike got fired.

                                    WVU was being taken over by another Tech/Leach disciple, Dana Holgerson. BB had coached with Dana at Tech.

                                    Bob then brought him to OU.

                                    It is a Mike Leach / Texas tech lovefest in Southern California right now.

                                    Not sure if BB will go. The current O line coach has many ties to Riley already.

                                      I am curious about Bedenbaugh's current state. Did he have a falling out with Riley and/or Wylie with the latter related to physical development of offensive linemen or if Bedenbaugh is just not interested in moving elsewhere for whatever reason or "other".

                                        Only 3 years as a DC where it’s really Kirby running the show. That just doesn’t cut it for a head coaching job at a blue blood.

                                          If he did, we will know about it someday.

                                          Truthfully, that makes more sense now that everything else has came out RE: Wylie. I mean, why work your ass off for BB when you don't really have to, because all he can hold over you is playing time, and Wylie isn't really going to be any kind of enforcer, and so forth.

                                          Coaches can get lazy and unmotivated. BB seems to be someone who isn't that way, and we know he can develop some nasty pipe-swinging linemen. Wylie showed up in January 2018. BB's last good line was the 2018 bunch. Seems more than a coincidence.

                                            It only took Jesus three years to get the apostles up to speed.

                                                  BB and Jerry never saw eye to eye on how to work out his guys.

                                                  BB won that battle, but it might have been short lived.

                                                  BB may be surveying the scene and thinking about loyalty to LR or loyalty to Stoops.

                                                  What looks better in the long run.

                                                      I'm sorry bro but I've been all over the internet reading and watching videos on this giant orgasm. It wasn't an individual saying it but a reported thing. Supposedly.. I'll say it that way.. when Lincoln met with Joe C that Joe C along with others offered that to LR to stay along with other concessions. I'll see if I can come across the article again and post it in a reply to you. I took it like it was already common knowledge is why I didn't really pay it any big attention. I'll try to get back to you on it as soon as I can..
