With yesterday's coaching article coming up this quick radio spot I did on ESPN Triangle and 620 The Buzz fits right into the mix as we discuss a topic that has been bounced back and forth in my neck of the woods and on twitter since the firing of Houston Nutt; is Ole Miss a better job than North Carolina? Mark Thomas, co-host and former NC State tight end, believes that since Ole Miss is in the SEC it is instantly a better job than North Carolina. Mike Maniscalco and myself sit on the other side with the idea that UNC, even with the basketball first culture, is still a better job than Ole Miss. The three of us dance around the subject, kicking out our points and then even after admitting it is easier to set yourself up for your next big job at UNC, Mark says he'd take the Ole Miss gig. Hate is real with him.
After the debate we get into the UNC job itself. Hit on what the university needs, what Bubba Cunningham seems focused on getting and then the names themselves start to get discussed. Of the names bandied about I am a James Franklin guy and we get into why. I also hit on the travesty that is UNC not actively getting after Kirby Smart, how dumb I think "winning the presser" is as a principal and all that jazz from yesterday's write up on coach hunting. By the way check out another spot I did yesterday on the Triad Sports Daily where we get a little more in depth on the whole coaching conundrum at UNC.
To wrap up, after Mark sat there with a straight face and said he'd take Ole Miss as a job over UNC, I reach across the aisle to say congrats to NC State on their bowl bid and their win against Maryland. All jokes aside anytime I see kids get out there and sell out on effort I'm going to root for it, I don't care what color jerseys they are wearing.
