I think Jimbo is a coach that would be well received by most and could win over almost everyone else once he makes the rubber chicken circuit. It certainly seems feasible that we could out-bid FSU, if they fought to keep him.
5 mil seems a bit much for Jimbo and his resume, though. I think if you think he's in play and he waffles a bit, I'd go just north of 4 mil and see what happens.
The bad news is there aren't many other sexy candidates beyond him and Petrino. Stoops would be a guy I'd offer 5 mil to, but he's probably not likely to leave.
I always cringe when I see that phrase "a great man". I personally don't believe any man is great. There are great football coaches for a season or two, and if they're lucky a little longer but sooner or later their humanity comes out.
^ I smell an inclination or a "strong" opinion or maybe my man Phillip knows something!
