What do you call a sad strawberry?
A blue berry.
Welp, it was going to happen eventually
This was the strangest pairing for both sides. I never understood why Harsin took this job. I get he was eventually going to leave Boise State but figured it was for a west coast team. Honestly the Arizona State vacancy might be a wayyyy better fit for the former Boise State head coach. He’s too competitive to not be in coaching. and the two+ months he’s going to have off (and extra $15 million) is going to be super-nice.
On a somewhat more detail note, here is Harsin’s coaching philosophy
Honestly it seems pretty thorough. Seemed like a tough, but fair, approach. BUT the personality part of the whole equation cannot be understated. Cool to see some perspective from The Chosen One and other Boise State greats.
This tweet is asking the tough question
And, yes, Colorado State did get beat that bad.
Gosh that offense was pretty terrible. And an oline that was just terribad. A good tune up for the BYU game this Saturday.
CBS Sports has Boise State at no. 48
Which is a five slot drop. That’s… dumb.
While we are at CBS: Bowl Projection
Nothing you haven’t seen before (Los Angeles Bowl). But it seems to be consistent.
In case you folks need to know when the game is kicking off on Saturday
5 pm if you’re going to be at the game. The actual channel is still somewhat up to debate. If a game seven is needed for the World Series and whatnot.
Try Landing on the Moon.
Harsin was bound for failure from the start. His mentality is not conducive to the SEC environment run by boosters. I’m feel a little meh about Harsin as a coach now, but he was a great Bronco coach and I wish him the best moving forward. Didn’t deserve the SEC non-sense.
Amen, Boise. I’ve followed the Harsin saga from the beginning. It was worse than a political campaign; false accusations, rumors, inuendos. And then they said he couldn’t recruit! Like, who would want to go to that school after boosters spread that crap in newspapers, blogs, radio, TV and bathroom walls. It was the epitome southern aristocracy. Harsin is pretty much an ‘if you don’t like it kiss it’ type of personality. As much as the southern bravado likes to claim they are tough, they are incredibly thin skinned. However, if by chance, Harsin would have been successful early, Auburn would… Read more »
A guy I work with is an Auburn alumni and keeps in touch with the people there. The boosters wanted one coach, the AD wanted Harsin, and since the AD has the final say, he got who he wanted. Sounds like it was the first time the boosters were told to shove it.
So less than 30 minutes after a new AD is hired, Harsin and most of “his” staff were fired (of the 4 that went with Harsin, only 1, Joe Schmedding, is still there)
