Don't forget to bet against black coaches

Re: Don't forget to bet against black coaches

timely was the same guy promoting Jackie robinson little league when they had 7 ineligible kids, Cancel that Oprah appearance.
 
Re: Don't forget to bet against black coaches

Unless I've missed something, currently Illinois is the only FBS team to have the trifecta of having a black HC Lovie Smith, OC Garrick McGee, and DC Hardy Nickerson.

:lightbulb:

The only other time I can recall this happening is when John Embree was at Colorado and Eric Bienemy was the OC. I don't remember who the DC was, but they were one of the worst coaching staffs I've witnessed.
 
Re: Don't forget to bet against black coaches

Lovie is in a cushy situation... I know some fans who tell me they'd be happy with him producing a 4-8 year... lol. Dude has no pressure in Champaign. This is his retirement tour.
 
Re: Don't forget to bet against black coaches

Norm Chow wasn't trying either. terrible hire. Illinois is a basketball school, this means they don't have to hire one in basketball.
 
Re: Don't forget to bet against black coaches

* notates head-to-head matchups that will not be included in the overall.

Illinois @ USF *

Kent @ Marshall L 21-0...horrible team.
Georgia State @ Penn State Won and covered
Central Mich @ Syracuse Won and covered
VT @ East Carolina Lost and blown out in 2h.
ULL @ Texas A/M Push depending what # you had.
BG @ NW Blown out including ATS loss. Qualfies as a quota hire and his team is terrible.
App State @ Texas State Lost but covered.
Oregon @ Wyoming Won and covered by a wide margin...isn't anything new for Taggart.
K State @ Vandy Won outright...Mason has earned a job at a major football school and he shouldnt be considered a quota hire when he is hired.
Stanford @ San Diego State
Stanford lost outright laying more than a td.

5-4 qualifies as a great day for this bunch.

The pineapple quota hire at BYU was blown out and embarrassed once again.

5-5, BYU coach was affirmative action, the school had a diversity hearing and demanded they hire a Polynesian.

Re: Don't forget to bet against black coaches

Most Historical black colleges lost ats, bama am, southern, bethune cookman came up short top of head
 
Re: Don't forget to bet against black coaches

Something else that needs to be noted is watching when one of these clowns is fired, what the replacement does with the program.

Purdue comes to mind initially and tonight's Virginia win at Boise shows that Mendenhall has Virginia finally on the rebound after Mike London was fired.

What the pineapple has done to the BYU program is shameful.

Re: Don't forget to bet against black coaches

Sumlin could regain some of his former swag if his team beats Arkansas and Bret Bielema...another coach who has fallen out of favor.

great point and a point I made it 5 years ago in basketball.
 
Re: Don't forget to bet against black coaches

another angle I'm considering is betting UNDER when you have 2 runningbacks playing Qb like we did in Utah -Arizona game tonight

:shoot:

We need more quota hires like Jon Embree who bring along their own affirmative action staffs. The pineapple at BYU is the best we have currently that I'm seeing.

Drink must have scrambled for excuses during Embree's tenure.

Re: Don't forget to bet against black coaches

Strong won and covered Thursday W

Franklin -11 @ Iowa won but failed to cover L
Kent +44 @ Louisville lost but covered W
Cuse +21.5 @ LSU lost but covered W
Vandy +18.5 vs Bama blown out and also failed to cover L
Texas St +13 vs Tex SA blown out and also failed to cover L
Sumlin -2.5 vs Ark won and covered...bielema is becoming a clown at arkansas W
Nevada +28.5 @ Wash St blown out again...nuff said L
Oregon -14.5 @ Ariz St lost outright laying 2 tds L and LOL
Stanford -7 vs UCLA pending

4 up and 5 down for these guys with one of them a double digit favorite losing on the field. However, maybe shaw can get a cover tonight and East Carolina plays Sunday.
 
Re: Don't forget to bet against black coaches

However, NFL looks like 2-5, and 8-10 overall for the week.

Cleveland -1.5 @ Indi L
Pitt -7 @ Chicago L
Jets +6 vs. Miami W
Denver -3 @ Buffalo L
Detroit +3 vs. Atlanta L
LAC +3 vs. KC L
Cinci +7.5 @ GB W
 
Re: Don't forget to bet against black coaches

Anyone who defends Tomlin still is nuts. They just lost to a team that had a QB that didn't complete a pass to a WR more 7 yards downfield.

One pass completed to a WR for 9 yards. That's it. Bears were tanking with an auto L QB and Tomlin still lost.

Utsa HC Wilson is AA as well so why does he not get the W and Texas st. Gets the L?
 
Re: Don't forget to bet against black coaches

Give Lovie Smith some credit... He's got 6 points at home vs a retooling Nebraska team... it doesn't look good, but when you factor in that Nebraska held a powerhouse Arkansas State team to merely 36 points at home, it really puts things in perspective.

:LMAO

But remember... Illinois had never hired a black coach for a major sport, and needed a slam dunk in college basketball to fix the John Groce mistake for it's basketball program. This was a political hire that is going to be a complete and utter disaster, but at least the school doesn't give two shits about football.
 
Re: Don't forget to bet against black coaches

Lovie went ahead and hired black def and off coordinaters, last team that did that was colorado and they went like 3-30 over 3 years
 
Re: Don't forget to bet against black coaches

Byu's pineapple hc and staff getting worked over against Utah State. :lightbulb:

Lovie and the trifecta at Illinois provides another cover for the faders.

Lovie always liked hiring his boys wherever he coached. They have one winnable game left on the schedule.
 
Re: Don't forget to bet against black coaches

They got crushed today. Illinois byu eastcar tsu got annihilated. Leach vs taggert was coaching mismatch. Shaw and babers lost by hooks ats
 
Re: Don't forget to bet against black coaches

Gotta love the discipline of a Tomlin coached Steelers

Another long run by Jacksonville with a double digit lead over the Steelers at home and a guy in the secondary tackles someone after a first down and starts celebrating like he just stopped a guy on 4th and short to win the Super Bowl.
 
Re: Don't forget to bet against black coaches

Tomlin classic example of animals running the zoo.

It was fine when the Steelers had the most talent in the league, but now that they're just pretty good, he ends up allowing them to choke winnable games often.
