[quote="jjepsu92, post:4, topic:1732"]Wow DJones with a premature send on a story.
Any chance that the hesitation on Scrap accepting is PSU finally putting a succession plan and timetable in place for JoePa?[/quote]
I thought the same thing. PSU has to realize that if Scrap leaves, then he might take along a few other assistants with him. Then recruits follow and who knows what happens. Someone had to force their hand and ironically that someone might be Pitt.[quote="MarkH, post:11, topic:1732"]I think for both Bradley and Golden, they realize that waiting for Joe is a pointess exercise. They need to do what's in their own best interest, because you cannot be certain of the timing of anything with Joe. I think both of them getting outside experience at this point put them in better shape to replace Joe 100 years from now when her does step down.[/quote]That or maybe Bradley realizes (has been told) he won't be getting the PSU job when Joe is finished.
WHERE DO YOU PEOPLE COME UP WITH THIS STUFF ?!?!?!?!??!!
It blows my mind how other will insert their own little drama into these situations !!! Paterno and his staff has been saying the same thing for decades, and it has proven to be the truth time after time after time,… but people still keep coming up with this crap.
If Bradley was the shoe-in for Joe’s replacement, why on earth would he be interviewing for Temple, Pitt and UConn?
BECAUSE THERE IS NO SHOE-IN !! THERE IS NO ‘SUCCESSION PLAN’ !!! That’s what he’s been saying.
If the only reason why Bradley was staying was for the HC position, then why would he have stuck around for 32 YEARS !!!
Can you name ANY OTHER coach who has served under the same head coach for 32 years? How about serving at the same school for 32 years?
Maybe because being an Asst. at PSU IS a DREAM JOB in itself! Huge salary and JOB security. Job security is unheard of in that occupation! Look at the resumes of most coaches at other schools!
Maybe Tom really enjoyed this dream job in a dream town with a dream salary!!
I’m being told in Pittsburgh that ~itt is negotiating with Bradley. Sticking point is he wants asst. coach salaries OVER ~itt’s planned budget!
Tundra, that’s exactly what I think as well.
Eveyone makes it seems like these Penn State assistants are being jerked around and lied to. I don’t think that’s the case at all.
Maybe it’s something that nobody likes to consider in their little overly-dramatic scenerios running through their heads… The Penn State assistants are happy with the position they have.
Think about this… I think if Bradley takes the Pitt job, he will also be drawing a Penn State PENSION !!! No joke. :-X
Is Larry Johnson complaining? Is Golden complaining? Is Big Red complaining? Is Vanderlien complaining? Is Fran ganter complaining? Is Sandusky complaining?
We have a situation that is probably ENVIED throughout the rest of the college football world. Revolving door of slimeballs?..Not at all. We have long standing coaches who are happy about what they do and seem to be very good at doing it. We have continuity of coaching, a clean record of violations, graduating players we can be proud of, success on the field… AND OUR FANS STILL COMPLAIN !!!
