He is 72. Not that old. He is in great shape. He did great in his last gig at Utah. The guy is a Hall of Fame coach. He knows his football!!
Then break out the soft crackers and Sanka, and let’s do this! I’m sure Choach would welcome an OC “doing it for fun because he’s bored.”
You don’t know Dennis. The guy would out work anyone and would love it and be having fun. He loves the game and he loves MSU. Choate knows him well!
Sounds like a done deal a la VAJ not leaving for Oregon.
Don’t have a clue if he would be a candidate. However, I would not be surprised.

Good coordinators are really hard to replace at the salary that can be paid at the FCS level. There offense will suffer for that loss.
Dennis Erickson is bored. He spent a lot of time at Cat practices last season. Don’t be surprised. He loves Bozeman and MSU.
What is he, 85? Dude has been sending back soup and tipping 8.2% for a decade now. What are they going to do if there is a night game?
So it all hinges on the soup in Bozeman. Makes sense.

Not a big loss at all. I think miller was young, inexperienced, and really did some things that made that O stagnant at times. They may actually be better off with him moving on.
Agreed, a good, experienced OC is hard to replace. Him, nor so much. Program is doing well. Shouldnt be hard to attract someone more qualified.
Well, I am glad Miller is moving on. I don’t know who schemed the motion and misdirection that seemed to leave the Griz LBs a step out of position last November, but I suspect Miller was involved. He got the job at BSU for a reason. Maybe like the reason Jonathan Smith is now HC at OSU. But WTF do I know, I never played the game at a respectable level.

Oh that’s just one of many where he’s been an idiot and entirely wrong.

Nick Saban is 68. Not quite an ancient 72 but getting close. He's obviously losing it. Dude couldn't even make the playoffs this year

I’m about to be 43 but I feel like a 103. Especially rolling, and I do mean rolling, out of bed at 4 in the morning.

A lot of hard miles in that 73 (next month). Countless bottles of Jack Daniels. Why did he leave Utah?

So it all hinges on the soup in Bozeman. Makes sense.
