Butch Jones
Off to Tennessee

Seems like more turnover than usual this year. I doubt he takes them to the next level, but they should be plus .500

RE: Butch Jones
This is why I was asking about Lembo or Campbell. Seems like Cincy has had good success poaching the MAC with Kelly and Jones. I'm wondering if they try it again.

Speaking of which...... why does Wikipedia have him listed as Cincinnati's head coach???

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pete_Lembo

"Pete Lembo (born April 16, 1970) is an American football coach and former player. He is currently the football coach at The University of Cincinnati, a position he assumed in December 2012. Prior to coming to Cincinnati, Lembo was the head football coach at Ball State University from 2010 until 2012, and at Elon University from 2005 to 2010.
On December 12, 2012, Bill Scholl, director of athletics at Ball State University, confirmed that Pete Lembo had resigned as head football coach to take the head coaching job at Cincinnati."

This is weird...

I think the weirdest part is that it is post-dated for next Wednesday

RE: Butch Jones
Probably some truth to it to considering Lembo's tweet this past Tuesday:

"Great day recruiting in the Cincinnati area. We have a terrific young man committed from there. The HS coaches are noticing our progress."

Lembo might be in play for them, but with Cincinnati (and the Big East) losing AQ status in another year, it can't possibly be the draw it was in the last half-decade. I'm sure they'll pay more than Ball State, but would it be worth it? Hell, it's not outside the realm of possibility that Cincinnati is a MAC team in less than five years.

I don't think their vanity would ever let them do that. They'll go back to Conference USA if they can't get into the ACC. But, f*^k Cincinnati.

ANY move out of Ball State would be worth it.

No honestly, that's not why. I already kind of said it in another thread but the common opinion there is that Ball State is one of the worst jobs to have in the MAC.

I guess I'll have to reach out to that blogger and apologize for WMU after he had to deal with itchnut Persky.
