That aside, there is some super secrecy surrounding this entire staff building that is strange to say the least.

Just like him not landing his first choice at DC isn't the end of the world.Good lord why are you even trying to argue in circles around this stupidly simple factual observation that relates to this exact situation.

Bear with me here, but I think a MAC job may be better based on expectations. I am not sure you can win enough games there and Pitt recruiting is tough although with the PSU troubles it may be easier.Quick, name the last successful Pitt coach..... thought so.

WinchesterBUCK wrote: Here are some bullet points:- Luke has been offered the Pitt job and he has until tomorrow to accept (money is good)- Luke does not get the warm and fuzzy feeling from Meyer, thinks Meyer is 'slick'- Meyer has not told Luke his specific role on the coaching staff, even though Meyer said on the radio that Luke would call the defensive plays and be co-DC- Luke's wife will play a big role in this. Going forward as a head coach: is she his wife or just the mother of his children- Some people he has talked to think he stays because of the family thing, but this is going to be very closeIMHO, Luke is having a hard time accepting the fact he was not chosen as the HC and tOSU went with Meyer. I'm not sure they are going to work out as a 'team' if Luke can't get over this. I think he stays for now, but if he takes Pitt job, I would not be surprised at all. I got it 60/40 he stays, and only for family reasons.

Those four hours round trip certainly don't matter in the real world, especially for a quick two day trip.

The players just did not look that athletic (in general) under Lichter, hell I wrote earlier this year that I though the LBs looked a little umm..... "unchiseled;" they did not look like elite athletes in their prime. The OL has been getting soft too.Mariotti has a track record of proven performance and I expect to see some players get reborn through the offseason (I also expect that some will not survive the offseason).
