Jim Grobe is not a leader of men. When it gets to a point where your assistant coaches have the audacity to go to social media and lament for another coach, that's a huge problem because it's a reflection of a lack of leadership from the man who's in charge. Now, players do that kind of stuff all the time; however, not at the magnitude that Baylor Football players displayed in 2016. When players are bold enough to step up to to a coach and tell him that they want to wear black jerseys to protest the firing of a former coach, they're telling that coach that they don't respect him as a coach. In sympathy to Grobe, he really didn't know what he was getting himself into. Not only is Baylor the Rapist Capital of College Football, but the program is full of undisciplined players and coaches that have no regards to law and order. Now, as for the coaches, the ones whose names was on the list of the twitter protest needs to be fired immediately after the game against Texas Tech tonight...immediately meaning after the final whistle is blown, The Baylor President needs to have his pink slips out handing it out to every coach who was involved in the twitter petition. Also, Athletic Directors throughout the college landscape needs to write those names down and truly question their character before allowing them to coach at their respective football program.
"the program is full of undisciplined players and coaches that have no regards to law and order." --Mr. WhiteJack
Baylor needs a disciplinarian. Somebody who will strike fear not only in the players but the coaches also. Now Mr. WhiteJack says fear meaning in respect. When a head coach establishes himself as a leader, everybody knows that he is the man in charge and nobody would dare stage a twitter petition, and no player would dare walk up to him and request a protest for a former head coach. If Nick Saban or Jim Harbaugh was head coach, this mess would not be taking place. Now from a winning point-of-view, the Grobe hire by far was a bad pick. In 11 seasons at Wake Forest, he only made one New Years Day Bowl and during his days at Ohio in the mid-90s, he had a 33-33 record in just six seasons. Baylor needs a coach who is not afraid to get in anybody's face and tell them to follow orders like Donald Trump would. A Coach who is honest and is willing to call anybody out no matter their rank or prestige. There's a man that fits this description and he's the only man that Baylor should pursue. His name is P.J. Fleck out of Western Michigan. It's time for The Baylor Bears to "Row The Boat" past this current era of undisciplined, unlawful behavior. It's time for The Bears to "Row The Boat" and clean out the cave.

A season that started off with so much promise has burnt down to ashes. A coach that once was the number one candidate for The "Comeback Coach of The Year Award" has taken a back seat to Mike MacIntyre of Colorado. Remember in week 1 of The College Football season when The Texas A&M Aggies beat The UCLA Bruins in Overtime? Remember on October 8, 2016, when The Aggies had a big lead on The Tennessee Vols, allowed them to comeback and tied the game and needed to beat them in dramatic Double-Overtime fashion? Yes, Sumlin and The Aggies looked like the hottest kid on the College Football block until The Fat Elephant proved the Nation wrong on October 22. However, despite the Tide showing us that the Aggies were frauds, The SEC's Sugar Daddy still had them ranked #4 in the first week of their 2016 CFP Poll. Instead of the Aggies making their Sugar Daddy look smart, they went on to lose to General Jefferson Davis' Troops in two consecutive weeks and the rest was history. A coach whose seat cooled off after a 6-0 start heated right back up after a 2-4 finish. The big question that Sumlin needs to answer is this
What Happend After that loss to King Bama?
Texas A&m was just not the same after that game. Injuries were already piling up to key players after they defeated the Dirty Pigs back on September 26, then in the Bama game, it seemed as if the Aggies hit a brick wall and never recovered from the concussion. Injuries to key players such as Quarterback Trevor Knight, Offensive Lineman Connor Lanfear, Receiver Ricky Seals-Jones, and Cornerback Preist Willis started to manifest. Today, after the nation watched the Aggies get man-handled by Derrius Guice on The Annual Fat Boy Day, Sumlin and The Aggies will most likely play in The Music City Bowl for the second straight season. Now if you don't remember what happened in the 2015 Music City Bowl, that was the coming out party for current Louisville Quarterback Lamar Jackson. Still confused? That was the game where Lamar Jackson gave the College Football World a Preview of what he's currently showcasing in 2016. Go back and watch highlights from that game when you get time.
"In the Bama game it seemed as if the Aggies hit a brick wall and nevered recovered from the concussion." ---Mr. White Jack
It's pretty disappointing, a team that was once highly favored as a CFP Contender has now turned into a Music City Bowl contender. Not only that but The Music City Bowl maybe Sumlin's last Bowl game as an Aggies coach. Some thought he was going to be fired last year after losing three Quarterbacks. Now a question that someone needs to ask Sumlin is why did he abandon the up-tempo spread option? Now Mr. White Jack understands that in order to be the best, you must beat the best; and King Bama is the Master of the SEC, so if you want to be like them you must replicate yourself like them. Well not necessarily. It's pretty obvious that SEC coaches either have short-term memory or are just too stupid to realize King Bama's Kryptonite. Ohio State revealed it in 2015, Clemson revealed it last season, and Hugh Freeze continuously reveals it yearly. Even Sumlin's own Johnny Manziel revealed it. The Aggies problem was never its offense, it was its defense. Sumlin did a good job of improving his defense, but he went away from a style of offense that proved costly in 2016. Mr. White Jack is a fan of Sumlin because there are not too many Black Head Coaches in the Power 5, so the few that are there should be cheered for; however, this is a business, and the only color that matters in the College Football Business is green. Wherever job he lands in 2017, Sumlin needs to go back to an offense that worked well from his days in Houston & The Johnny Manziel Era.
Thanks for reading. This is Mr. White Jack writing out of "The Sweet Cannabis Aroma" of Denver, Colorado! Peace.
Charlie Strong was on the hot seat as soon as he became a head coach for the Texas Longhorns a couple years ago. The Boosters, The fans, and the whole state of Texas was never patient with him. As a result of such, he was doomed from the get go. Charlie Strong is a man of standard and he never got the respect he deserved in the state of Texas. Strong's image in Austin has been tainted, and a lot of people do not remember the good coach that he was before going to Austin. Now is time for him to return back to the region where his legacy was established. Strong has always been a good defensive coach dating back to his days as Defensive Coordinator for the Florida Gators. From the 2003-09, Strong’s defensive units at Florida allowed an average of 17.6 points per game, which ranked ninth in the country over that span. Also during his time at Florida, Strong coached numerous All-Americans, a National Defensive Player of the Year, a Jack Tatum Award winner, SEC Defensive Freshmen of the Year, Thorpe Award finalists, Nagurski Trophy finalists and Chevrolet Defensive Players of the Year. He also developed numerous first-round NFL Draft picks and players that were selected in the third round or higher. At Louisville, he was able to get that program back to being a Group of 5 Contender at the time from 2010-2013 finishing with a 23-3 record in his last 2 seasons.
Ok, but why should He go to the Georgia State Panthers?
According to suburbanstats.org, The city of Atlanta is 54% Black and 38% White. This is very important because Strong would have stronger support by The Black Community against any Texas like Booster that would try to distract him from doing his job. Despite the demographic, the state of Georgia State has a lot to offer that Strong could work with. Not only is Atlanta the capital of the south, but Georgia State bought Turner Field which was the former home of the Atlanta Braves and is in the process of building a new football stadium for The Panthers right in the heart of Atlanta. Strong is already a great recruiter and a Georgia State football stadium would give strong more leverage over The Sun Belt Conference, The Georgia Bulldogs and The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. Now Strong stealing recruits from UGA is a long reach, but he will be capable of competing against Georgia Tech instantly for two reasons. One, Georgia State University is easier for a football player to get accepted into and they have more academic programs that suit well for Student-Athletes, while Georgia Tech is more suited for future Engineers and Tech Savy Students. Two, not only is Strong a better coach than Paul Johnson, but Strong can find a Sterling Gilbert type Offensive Coordinator that would attract more recruits. a Spread-Option, Up-Tempo Offense is more thrilling to play in than a predictable Triple Option Offense. The state of Georgia is surrounded by high school football talent. Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina...Strong would not have to travel across the country to find talent. In the Metro Atlanta area, he would be able to watch top recruits every Friday without purchasing airline tickets with the numerous talents that are in Gwinnett, Cobb, DeKalb, Clayton, Fulton Counties, and Atlanta Public Schools. He will also have instant access to the South Georgia region. To make the long story short, Strong will be in a Gold Mine for recruiting. As for conference play, The Panthers have already started a rivalry with current In-State Sun Belt member Georgia Southern. With Strong at the helm. not only would that rivalry heat up, but The Panthers would automatically become the face of the Sun Belt with Appalachian State, Troy, South Alabama and others putting a target on them. Georgia State is too big for The Sun Belt, and all they need is the right coach that would take them to new heights. They already have the right Athletic Director in Charlie Cobb who was instrumental in turning an Appalachian State football team into an FCS powerhouse, then to a FBS Group of 5 member. Now it's time for Cobb to join forces with the right coach that would elevate the Panthers into a future FBS Group of 5 Playoff Contender, and Charlie Strong is the right man for the job.
