hey, can't really blame him.  his roots are not hbcu football and in order for him to advance, he must climb the latter via the fbs/bcs route.  he probably knew when he first took the alcorn job that it would be a "stepping stone" to bigger and better things for him.

hate to see that happen, but that's the nature of the business.  a reporter asked coach mcnair after the cb if he felt he needed to make changes to his staff and he replied that he was more concerned about keeping the staff that he already had than making changes.  so i sense that coach mcnair anticipated that he may lose a staff member or two, and he probably had white in mind as an assistant who could potentially depart...

Surprised the new coach at WV hasn't added him to the staff there.

Sometimes, it's best not to return home. Hopefully, they will bring him to coach, and not just be a recruiter.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.
