    Pat......FYI ,...on your USM coaches search article........good article, very interesting read......but, Monken turned down being interviewed last year so i think he would do the same again this year, kirby is making almost a mil/yr plus incentives now so he is out, chizik - who really knows although he does have a good track record other than last year, blake is out unless hammond is gone, and petrino is gonna get more $$ to go elsewhere. the others are interesting choices.....i would like to add 2 to your list as well and let you do some reasearch and tell me whatcha think. they are Hal Mumme and Mike Dubose. Or better yet, whatcha think about if we could get hal for hc and mike as dc?? tell me whatcha think.

    Please reread and edit your article. It is painful to read with all the mistakes.

    Hey Patrick take a few journalism classes, when I saw the article it looked like it could be interesting. After reading nothing but your opinion written here, that is backed by no factual information, other than JR was a bust, I find it just a poorly written piece of garbage.

    Patrick, I'm starting a small bog for a few friends & I so we can talk football. It's for Bama fans & it's nothing big. We are going to write our own stories & just have an opinionated site to talk on, along with facts. I was wondering if it was ok with you to post some of your stories on there. I will be gld to send you a link & I will always say where the story came from including Bleacher Report. I will never discredit you on there & always support anything I post of yours. I just want to make sure it's ok with you first. Thank you, Steve Jinright
