I know you are comparing Liberty and I really do not know much about their program but if he went to OM why not? Is there really much difference in SC and what he had at OM? I guess OM does have more history but that was 50-60 years ago. Freeze would probably equal Spurriers success there. Personally I do not think he will go there but that is because I still think the SEC office will block it.
A few things I think need to be set aside here. One, this notion "it's in the SEC. It's playing for national championships." Sure, at some schools it does translate to a title shot. But, we're talking about UofSC here. They don't have "lots" to offer or we'd be seeing "lots" more talent there and we would have seen a lot more talent there.
Facilities. We know how they affect a program both from recruiting and how well a team is built, physically. Liberty, hands down, is in better shape than UofSC.
reallly...USCe has no shot at NCs or SECchampionship?
We're just a little bit removed from reading a claim here that Ole Miss has always been a "wanna be" and will always continue to be a "wanna be." But now, all it takes is for the to get a Cam/Burrow? That's is only a small part of their story: each of their stories. Take Auburn as one example here. Are you dismissing Dyer, or Fairley? And I'm only naming a few here...
You're missing the point here. Your comments are about what you think Freeze should do, or where he should coach, without any regard to what Freeze wants to do or where he wants to coach.
Not much different. Culturally, it's a very odd fit. I guess the only thing better is that Michigan is running a semblance of a spread offense now under Gattis, and presumably has recruited to it for a couple cycles. In 2008, they had only pro style recruits trying to shoe-horn into an offense RRod had and nobody fit.
It'll take another two years of great recruiting classes to get that team where a guy like Freeze could do well. It's been a problem with all pieces fitting together at the right time. Take last year where they had a pretty good offensive line but struggled at the skill positions. This season they've got a few skill players but issues on the line they have to address.
Here are the national ranking for their offensive skill guys for 2019 and 2020.
I think Freeze is a terrible cultural fit in Ann Arbor. It's not a shot at Michigan or Freeze, it's just reality.
TerryP, this is what I wonder about South Carolina. They don't have ANY football tradition. Until the few years under Spurrier, they had only ONE 10 win season in their history. This is where coaches go to ..... retire. Even Spurrier's career ended on a rough note at SC. Remember, I stated that they want him badly, I didn't say that they had anything to offer (except a larger than life challenge).
