Son, you need to come visit me in Margaritaville.
In mulling this all over I thought for awhile that BOB would only leave for NE if Bellycheck retired. Yet someone threw out another name somewhere in here which crossed my mind and would scare the bJesus out of me. His initials are JJ and he could pay the buyout without breaking a sweat. IF BOB and Joyner lock horns as is also being reported this thing could play out badly.

I tend to agree with you. I dont need names, just a general statement to tell me what kind of credibility it holds:
I know players on the team
I know a few coaches
I know people in NFL circles
I know an agent
I know a janitor that mops Old Main
I don't need names, but a location would help establish some cred...
OB is way to strong minded to work for Jerry.
Let's play a game. Drink whenever someone says the word "source" without mentioning the source.
Why not give him what he wants? Your not in a position to negotiate. If he walks your program is in serious trouble.
"One man didn't build this program and one man sure as hell cannot tear it down."
No, they don't cave when one of their own comes calling just the NCAA.
You also have the benefit of seeing a larger sample size from Reid. You got to see his peaks and plateaus. I doubt you were saying he was a terrible coach when he went 5 straight seasons winning 11+ games a year. Whoever the Eagles hire as their next HC there is about a 5% chance he'll be more successful than Reid and a 95% chance they'll be worse than Reid. Maybe BOB does know more about offense but I think Reid is the better coach.
And yes I would take a wildly successful coach like Paterno or Reid coming off some down years because they are still successful and proved it and like Joe was successful again. If Nick Saban goes 7-5 next year then 6-6 I'll still take him because he is a great coach and has proved it. BOB has been coach for one year and has done a remarkable job but Mike Shula went 10-2 at Bama. I just want to see more of BOB before I anoint him as better that one of the 10 Best football coaches of the last decade in Reid.
How about Peter King and Jason La Canfora? It's not as if the NFL guys are mum on this.
Not saying BOB would for sure have more success than Reid in his prime. I'm saying going forward BOB would be my preference for a coach in 2013 and beyond.
"Joe was successful again"
Not compared to how successful he used to be. Having two championship calibur teams in a 15 year period (against a very weak Big Ten) is not the type of success Joe and PSU were used to.
The worst SB winning coach is better than the best to have never won it. Reid had his QB and his shots, he is not going to win a championship at KC or AZ.
“We need to keep this (expletive) together,” Mauti and Zordich to Hill
I hope you don't mean the magaritaville in Pittsburgh. If you mean like Cabo, then I am coming.
I doubt JJ would go after another unproven NFL HC. He would want Cowher or something along those lines.
someone should start a replacement coach thread. I'll start:
Unless Mort of Schefter confirm he's going on an interview there is no reason to thinks he's leaving. Every other coach rumored including Chip Kelly has had interviews setup and reported.
I'll throw a dollar bill on Neuheisel at this point, just in case.
With the sanctions and Freeh agency, I don't know who would step into this mess right now. Penn State would really have to step up and pay someone big money. Maybe Al Golden if he is wary of Miami's own NCAA issues?
No, no no. You're doing it wrong, the first name in any coaching search is always Jon Gruden. I believe it's required in his TV contract that he is mentioned first for every opening.
