Don't know much about Grinch.  I suspect it is Chinander all the way unless he is staying at UCF to take the top job.  

 

And I wouldn't be shocked if a) Frost already asked Chinander to go to Lincoln and b) Chinander turned Frost down. Hell, if Frost set a great system up down there already, it wouldn't be shocking to see a few coaches to stay on and ride that gravy train until the biscuit wheels fall off. 

 

We're likely *MUCH* further along in this process than most suspect, and this sort of DC makes sense if it's someone Chip Kelly vouched for, Moos can recommend, and can come in and work with the kids and defense we're playing in right now.

Not only that but this guy is considered by some to be the better coach flat out. You like continuity, but if you can build a stellar staff and are willing to build great relationships with new coaches I think that is the way to go.

Going by what Moos did at Wazzu and what he's said in interviews it is entirely possible that we not only have our HC but also his staff unofficially in-place.

After watching the Apple Cup last night, no thanks on Alex Grinch.

Haha one game huh. Well I’m guessing you could pick one game for every DC and react the same way. Washington is just a better football team, has one of the best O-Lines in the country

Giving up almost 25 pts a game in the American....only 2 ranked opponents, one scored 42.  Body of work, not one game.  Anyone watching Bama for 1st time, probably not a college football fan. Sold that Frost is guy for job, not sold on his staff

Grinch no thanks!!!   Chinander no thanks!!!   Did anyone watch Cal and the Huskies destroy WA state.

 

I'm sorry but stay clear from anyone related to Defense and the Chip Kelly coaching tree.  They don't believe in defense they just believe in scoring more points than the other team.

So you completely disregard the improvements that Grinch has made to WSU's defense over the past two seasons? They finished the season #15 in total defense. A few years ago before Grinch came on board they weren't in the top 100. Sure, he has spent time with Kelly, but he also has coached with Pinkel, Leach, and Kehres. Those aren't bad guys to be around and craft a defense against. 

 

You can look at two games and say that it isn't working or you could look at the body of work and see improvements.

I'm no fan of Mike Leach or any product he puts out.   PAC 12 Football and its mentality doesn't work in the Big 10.  I think as a fan base we'd have that figured out.

 

The PAC 12 for the most part is a finese conference based on the vertical passing game. 

 

I believe Football games are won in the trenches.  Run the ball and stop the run.

 

Grinch is focused on speed same as Frost and  Chinander.  Speed kills, but its no replacement for big mean poweful Defensive and O lineman that come at you for 4 quarters.

 

I'd be very happy with the product the Wisconsin Badgers put out yearly in the Big Ten.

 

Yes WA State has improved and I'll give credit where its due.  But WA State will never be the big dogs in the PAC 12.

He won't be staying at WSU for long and you gloss over what he accomplished at Missouri when they actually competed for SEC championships. 

 

I know this is hard for some fans but you have to catch some of these coach as they are rising not when they falling (Riley, Diaco).

Aka Grinch would be a great hire and anybody who can get him should be happy about it. If we are competing with  the Bucks for Grinch that is reason enough for me to want him. That means he is likely one of the best DCs in the country.

It looks like we have our old/current DC back so I don't know if we will be in the market for a new DC :) 

 

I do hope for the best for Grinch and wherever he coaches.

You're taking Schiano back??? On Facebook y'alls fan base was saying good riddance because of the Iowa game, but then again, we know the type that swim around in the ESPN Facebook comment section:lol:

The comments section on sites like that might be filled with the scum of the earth. There were plenty of people that wanted Tom Herman fired at the beginning of the 2014 season after the VT loss. You don't hire or fire someone based off one or two games and you definitely don't make decisions based off social media. :) (Tennessee).

 

I'm indifferent towards Schiano. I guess it is fine if we keep him.

Yeah, coaches who believe in scoring more points than the other team are the worst!

Funny that may happen, I just saw he is a featured speaker here in Cleveland for the FB coaching clinic in March.  May get to drive to it instead of fly.

This would surprise me if he took this job with Schiano still at OSU. I am all for it if he wants to come back to Ohio.

Ya I don't get the move with Schiano still there, and after the Tenn debacle opened-up the PSU deal again I don't Schiano leaving any time soon. I think Grinch should stand-pat and keep improving Wazzu's defense, he'll probably be getting a nice offer or two come this time next year.

Sparty opened up a can on the Grinch.  :lol:

 

Falk didn't play, their top 2 WRs were out, and their top defensive player was out for the first half. All that plus the fact that Sparty is a good team.
