    Appears Edwards to the Dolphins, Campo to JAX. Are we really down to a Saints' position coach, or Bill Clay? Where in the heck is Phil Bennett these days? Last I heard of him he was the DC at Kansas State (?) Maybe someone can put a bug in Les' ear to look into hiring Bennett as DC. Tigers sucked under Hallman but the Bennett defense was actually pretty good and he's a good guy.

    Crap, let me answer my own question

    Did a yahoo search, Bennett is the head coach of SMU and just signed a 2 yr extension. Oh well.

    Did George Edwards' name come out of the blue when you thought things were gloomy? Did Powe's name come out of the blue when you though recruiting was sucking? Did Bennett, Rouse, and RP schedule a visit the same weekend when you weren't expecting it?

    Damn..give Miles a chance to interview another DC candidate before we assume we are "stuck" with Brown or Clay. He will hire a good guy...that should be abundantly clear to anyone by now.

    Not sure why everybody is freaking out here. Would you rather a less thought out candidate when we're about half way through the season? Or how about in the Rose Bowl, as we lower Leinert's draft status a couple rounds!

    Agree, just let Miles do his job methodically and get the best man he can.

    What makes me laugh is how some people thought Skip moved to fast to hire Miles.

    Now some people are saying Miles is moving to slow to hire a DC.

    Saban certainly had some LSU fans pegged right with his catastrophe syndrome comment....

    What comment was that? I must have missed that one but I'd love to hear it.

    As much as I would like to see a great DC hired right now it is more important to get the right guy than the quick one. It is very very hard to believe the same people who criticized Skip on his fast hire are going crazy because Miles is taking his time. :dis: :dis: :dis: :dis: :dis: :dis: :dis: :dis:
