    But remember that the bRuins hired an all star big name coach, exactly what so many were sure would be the solution to all our problems.

    There was a cached version online at one time but not sure about now. One of the casualties of the last migration....a LOT of great threads were lost.

    Do you seriously not think that our program would be better served with any of these coaches at the helm:

    - Urban Meyer
    - PJ Fleck
    - James Franklin

    Again, we wouldn't accept a subpar professor, none of us would accept subpar employees so why would we accept CCH? Sheesh, I wouldn't keep a car that barely gets me to the office each day and 2 or 3 times a month just dies on the way in.

    I am usually pretty good at seeing others' perspective but the Helton defenders have me at a loss...

    With the benefit of hindsight, I would accept a young assistant with no head coaching experience at all (John McKay).

    With the benefit of hindsight, I would accept an NFL retread who had been fired twice and lost half his games (Pete Carroll).

    On the other hand, there are a bunch of bigger names that didn’t pan out nearly so well.

    The point is, this is alchemy, not science. There aren’t any guarantees. That’s why Chip Kelly can set the world on fire at Oregon and stink up the place at UCLA. Same with Harbaugh at Stanford and then at Michigan.

    it’s not that I’m a big Helton booster. It’s that I think the guys who are convinced that the flavor of the month will roll in here and run the table every year are delusional. If you look at bringing in a new coach as a crap shoot no matter who the coach is then the difference between shooting craps now and giving Helton one more year, likely shooting craps then, isn’t so great.

    I sent a good bye note to my ticket rep as well. Feel a bit bad for him as he has been good to work with and is now in a very difficult spot. He basically works at what was a five star restaurant but is now serving McDonald's hamburgers and wants to continue to charge 5 star prices.

    And I'm quite sure you see yourself as the "real fan". Most of us have other things to do than to endure another long period of frustration and humiliation for a once proud football program. At least the door hitting the rest of us in the ass will only do that one more time while you and the few others like you can stand there and take beating after beating.

    I've been lucky enough to live through two Golden Ages of Trojan Football. My first game I saw Craig Fertig pass to Rod Sherman to beat Notre Dame 20-17 back in 1964. I was 8. My dad took me. Our last game together was beating Penn State in the Rose Bowl 52-49. I saw OJ beat Beban. Sam Dickerson in the corner of the end zone. 55-24 beat down of Notre Dame. Beating Oklahoma when they fumbled 12 times in one game, losing 6 of them. Then I saw Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl.

    I also lived through the Bruin streak and the Irish streak. Dad and I sat through the whole game when Notre Dame beat us 51-0 back in 1966. I was there for the Texas Rose Bowl. Heartbreaking.

    55 years of Trojan Football hasn't taught me to accept mediocrity, but it has taught me patience. It has also taught me to be skeptical about how the next flavor of the month is not guaranteed to set the world on fire. When a new AD comes in he almost always wants the head football coach to be someone he hired, so Helton's days are numbered. It doesn't surprise me that Bohn couldn't find, and land, the right replacement after being on the job all of three whole weeks. I am highly skeptical of supposed inside reports, but if the price of bringing in Urban Meyer is letting him run football as its own independent little fiefdom that would be laying our head on the NCAA chopping block for a loss of institutional control. Maybe that flies in the SEC but no surprise that they wouldn't agree to it out here.

    Either Helton will get it together (unlikely) or he will be moving on (more likely). Maybe it takes a year. Maybe even two. Only then will we find out if the next guy is another Pete Carroll, or another Paul Hackett. Either is possible, but another Paul Hackett is more likely, no matter who the hire is. Even if it's Urban Meyer.

    I understand. But I was thinking today while surfing about this whole thing. We only get so many seasons in our lives. I am furious as I thought about what caused us to cancel, we worked hard and have been C&G for over 23 years and now its gone, it was all we could do to "vote with our checkbook" but I doubt it will be missed. Now when the program gets on track we are back to square one should we decide to join again. However, I had thought about it, I could buy the best seats on Stub Hub and take a limo to the game and still be ahead every year.
    I am really disgusted with our two recent hires. I cannot explain to anyone what has changed.

    I enjoyed reading your post, Fight On!
