Got a special Thursday edition of the In The Bleachers podcast here for you guys with special guest Tim Hyland on to chat about not just one but TWO major topics that took the college football world by storm midweek. Hyland, the college football writer over at About.com joins us to first talk about his most recent article where he sees Mike Leach as the perfect fit to be the next Miami Hurricanes coach. We kick off the podcast with that topic before we get into the Miami Hurricanes overall coaching picture.
In talking about the Hurricanes coaching prospects we start out with discussing this idea of the 'Canes and Shalala needing to "make a splash" such as Gruden in this hire as opposed to truly seeking out the right candidate for the program long term. Hyland and your's truly get into what the restrictions are at The U and we ask "how good is this job" to prospective coaches.
Aside from the stadium issues we also delve a little bit into financials and wonder if Miami would be better served taking the "Auburn approach" to hiring instead of attempting to wow folks by winning a presser. Go with a lower budget coach so that a more powerful staff can be assembled and they can create the excitement through energy and recruiting the way Auburn was able to with the Tiger Prowl.
Talk then turns to Cam Newton as the news was released yesterday that Auburn's star quarterback and Heisman frontrunner was ruled eligible to play. I lay out my thoughts as to why I'm ultimately ok with the ruling then Tim and I discuss why this case is not "like the Reggie Bush case" as so many people have rushed to say. We also talk "precedent" a word that's been tossed around so much I'm tired of hearing it.
I hope you enjoy the show it was a fun one and a great way to kick off the morning.
