We're all entitled to our opinion; I respectfully disagree with yours.
The fact that he had any decent seasons in the WAC is an accomplishment. He's got 2 in-state schools (BYU and Utah ) with much much bigger followings even in a talent poor state. It's not like Utah State was some sleeping giant that was just waiting for right coach to step in and return them to glory. There is/was no glory; last year was their first winning season since '97.
The guy built something out of nothing. He's at least a decent coach and fielded a pretty good D. Ironically enough, they nearly upset Wisconsin @Wisconsin.
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
Learn how to spell brah

Dude had a losing record and is unproven. No one knows if he'll be good or bad. So all opinions mean crap...IMO
Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
4-8 his first two years there.
7-6 last year after Boise left the WAC, no ranked teams in the conference.
This year the WAC consists of Utah St, San Jose St, LA Tech, Idaho, New Mexico State and two teams in their first year of I-A football, Texas State and Texas-San Antonio.
The only thing that might constitute a resume win in four seasons at USU was an OT win earlier this year against LA Tech.

That conference is solid from top to bottom. Heavy hitters, I say.
You see that sign that says 'Rib Tips'??
If he's that good, why didn't Auburn hire him? Or at least let him interview?
He was beating those teams with Utah State. A program that has been beneath most of those programs that you just listed. He somehow got a terrible program like Utah State to win 9 games. He wasn't beating La Tech with Alabama or Florida athletes. He was coaching Utah State to victories. That, in itself, is impressive. I like Anderson more than Bielema.
Andersen by the numbers

If God dwells inside us, like some people say, I sure hope He likes enchiladas, because that's what He's getting
Auburn was hiring Malzahn the entire time. They knew who they were going to hire well before the hiring took place.
Do you think he was maybe listed down there, perhaps, say, because you couldn't spell his name correctly?
Outstanding. This was just the laugh I needed after finding out I got wait listed by UW's PT program. G'night boys!
He's not a Good Ole Boy. We won't hire anyone that hasn't been at AU before.
Alvarez was much better coaching than he is being an AD.
Anderson had to be the 10th choice, at least.
This was a great read. You tell who are fans of their team and who are fans of college football. Love it that the buckeye is putting down the guy that was the DC on the Meyer led Utah team that helped spring his career. He out coached Bert Bubbletits this year in Madison.
Yo Michigan fans.. I have a conspiracy I just though up.
Wisky is jealous that Michigan is playing better.. Michigan hired Hoke from a school the size of Utah State and Wisky copied you guys. They literally did the same thing Michigan did
Gonna share same results too
nah we just jealous of the natty's
So you're telling me the day that Bielema was fired, you knew who Gary Andersen was and he was on your short list of candidates you would like to see hired?
exactly. not at the top of the that list, but an option i felt was worth exploring.
Luckily I didn't say he was great, and that's your opinion. Regardless, I was trying to say that using record as the main factor in your opinion of a coach is stupid....
Lane Kiffin is 32-18(0.64) in his NCAA HC career. Here is a list of recent NCAA coaches with worse winning percentages...
Charlie Strong 24–14 (.632)
Al Golden 40-45 (.471)
James Franklin 14–11 (.560)
Mark Dantonio 68-45 (.601)
Brady Hoke 66-56 (.541)
Pat Fitzgerald 49-39 (.556)
Jim Harbaugh 29-21 (.58)
I'd rather have all of those coches not only based off coaching ability and Kiffin is a bigger douche than all of them combined.
