I don’t remember it being that amusing at the time I was watching it, though.

This is probably not the hot take South Carolina fans want to hear from their new offensive coordinator’s former boss at Georgia ($$).
“There’s no doubt things will be different and hopefully better,” Richt said of South Carolina’s decision to hire Bobo. “That’s why you’re going through this change. I’m not going to say it could have the same effect as the hire at LSU, but let’s face it: (The Tigers) made a coaching change and things changed dramatically.”
Boom has never had an OC who’s been able to make lemonade out of the lemons Muschamp’s provided. If Bobo can do that, he’ll have done well, Brady or no Brady.
Barring a last-minute change of heart, Mike Bobo will be South Carolina’s new offensive coordinator.
Three sources close to the situation confirmed the hire to The Post and Courier on Sunday. They each spoke on condition of anonymity due to USC’s Board of Trustees having to meet to authorize Bobo’s contract.
USC can’t officially confirm the hire until a contract has been approved. The Board is expected to do so on Tuesday.
Should make for an interesting experiment next season.
Colorado State had a poor 2018 season. Normally in college football’s coaching ranks something like that has little relationship to contractual reality, but that’s not how Mike Bobo rolls.
Mike Bobo sat on the couch in his office and spoke with a decisiveness in his voice. The Colorado State football coach bluntly evaluated the 2018 season, saying the Rams failed in all three phases of the game in a 3-9 campaign.
In diagnosing the season with his staff, athletic director Joe Parker and some of the players he expects to carry a leadership role in 2019, what linked the outcomes was a lack of accountability.
It’s the message he’s discussed with his staff and what will be delivered to the team when the players return from break in January. To make sure they understand accountability begins with him, Bobo said Monday he will set the initial example.
Bobo informed Parker two days after the loss to Air Force he would decline his $100,000 raise for the 2019 season. He amendment his contract and signed it in the past week, leaving his salary for this season at $1.8 million.
Jimmy Sexton shakes his head in disbelief. Meanwhile, Greg McGarity sheds a quiet tear and wonders if he should have done more to keep a fiscally responsible assistant coach in Athens.
If Kirby was this excited after Mike Bobo’s comeback win over Arkansas, imagine what kind of reaction he’d have if CSU somehow manages to upset the Gators.
