    It's Pruitt.

    When is the last time a struggling major program hired a DC as head coach and achieved a turnaround? I'll wait.

    How many of those guys get chances? Every hire seems to be an offensive coach. Bob Stoops is probably the last one to truly turnaround a program. Mark Dantonio didn't directly go to MSU from OSU, but he turned around MSU. Pat Fitzgerald was a defensive coach, but not a DC. He's done great at Northwestern.

    Yeah, OU was at a historical low when STOOPS took over. John Blake could CROOT but he was one of the worst gameday corches ever. Stoops brought in some key JuCo players and freshmen along with a great staff who helped turn things around so quickly. He definitely had his faults but he kept the program relevant throughout his tenure and stepped down for a young assistant with a bright future, leaving on a high note rather than running things into the ground, which is admirable. Riley has obviously done well in his first year, but he was well set up for success. We'll see how he does without BAKER.

    I down with it honestly. His success is going to depend on who he hires on his offensive staff, but thank fuck the days of having a swiss cheese defense are over.

    Yeah, I don't like the fact that he's not a proven head coach, but the guy has worked under arguably the best head coach ever, has had his hands in two national championships at Bama, and another at Florida State. At 43 years old, the guy has a hell of a resume, is a top level recruiter, and you won't find a coordinator in the country that knows how win at the national championship level better than this guy. He checks every box you want besides HC experience, and that was going to happen sooner than later.

    I'm more excited about this right now than I ever was about Dooley and Jones. And you know what? If it doesn't work out three years down the road, we've not lost anything but time. We just had our worst season in school history. Harder to go lower than rock bottom.

    Saw the tweet was from Chandler so had to peek at the profile. Dude goes to Hamilton High, the school whose football team is in the midst of a sexual assault scandal.

    So the long shit show in Knoxville has finally come to an end. I have to say, I think the Twitter uprising was worth it. I don't know how successful Pruitt will be, but I think he has a hiring ceiling than Schiano. I am also much more comfortable with Paw Paw Phil running the AD as opposed to Currie.

    I am very curious to see who Pruitt brings with him. That will be the key. If he just hires all his buddies fuuuuuuuuu. Get a good OC please.
