  1. If I was the AD and wanted to keep interviews on the downlow, I wouldn’t be flying out of Columbia. I’d drive to Charlotte, and take a commercial flight.
  2. I vacillate day to day on who I think would be best. Napier has been my favorite for about a year, then I got excited about Hugh Freeze, but I’m over that and moved on. Chadwell is very intriguing to me. I’ve read up on him, learned about his wife, who is from Iran, looked at his records, and he seems like a really good coach, but I just can’t get excited about him. Beamer was a hard no for me when I first heard him mentioned, but I have changed my opinion. So, in my mind, not that it matters in the big picture, I’m down to Napier and Beamer. Beamer has the highest up side to me, but Napier makes the most sense from the beginning. I just have this feeling that Napier doesn’t really care whether he is here or somewhere else, but I believe Beamer really wants to be here. I guess I’m glad I’m not the one deciding.

  5. I agree with you. I look at Chadwell as someone who has done well with little. I think he would be good with managing the team, but big time recruiting and other aspects would be new to him, having only worked at smaller schools, and there may be a learning curve. Napier, I think has more experience, having been at Clemson, so he may hit the ground running. Beamer may have the most upside, if he can handle the management of the program. Hopefully he would let his coordinators do their jobs, unlike Muschamp.
  6. In regard to his recruiting, he did well with recruiting when the recruiting office was crap. Muschamp has built a good infrastructure in the program, and Beamer would have the know how to capitalize on the staff that has been put in place and the facilities. I have been for Freeze, Napier or Chadwell. The Freeze ship appears to have sailed, so I'm good with Napier, Chadwell or Beamer.
  7. That’s a fair question, but what do you want from a head coach? If you want someone who has been a coordinator, is well thought of in his field, and is technically sound, then Muschamp is your man, because he checks all of those boxes, but still failed. PJ Fleck, Sam Pittman, and Dabo all had never been a coordinator, but have been good head coaches. I laughed at Clemson when they hired Dabo because he had no head coach experience, had no coordinator experience, and is a doofus. But I was wrong, except for the doofus part, because he’s been a good coach. I can’t guarantee that Beamer will be a great head coach, but he is definitely more qualified than Dabo before he got hired. If he can hire the coordinators that are rumored, such as Garrett Riley, I will jump firmly on the Beamer train.
  8. I’ve wanted Napier, Freeze or Chadwell. But I am intrigued with Beamer, now. I know he hasn’t been a coordinator, but having been an assistant HC at two schools, I would think he has learned a lot about how to manage a program. I would think, with his connections, he could get good coordinators, Garrett Riley’s name keeps coming up for OC, and we know he can recruit very well, and he has recruiting ties in many parts of the country. So, hopefully, if he is chosen, I think he’s got a shot of being a great coach.
  9. I have heard this, too. I’ve also heard Charlie Strong as DC. Not sure how I feel about that.
  10. I just hope we don’t lose some of the better guys. I’ve heard that Lloyd has been talking to Georgia, and Burch is talking about transferring. I hope those rumors aren’t correct.
  11. I understand that, and appreciate their loyalty, but what happened to esprit de corps?
  12. I believe Hilinski will announce he is transferring after the season ends. I’ve heard rumors other players will be too. I don’t understand quitting a team because the coach was fired, but that seems to be the culture Muschamp fostered.
