If not, BG fired Jinks with basically no game plan. If somehow Pelini ends up with this job, which I think becomes slightly more likely with each passing day, it will be the all time level of department dysfunction.

The Chicago airport was shutdown/massive delays the past couple days. If they are flying someone in for an interview, it's very possible.

I'm wearing an orange dress shirt to the office. I put my daughter in a BG onesie. I'm predicting we hear affirmative word today on the conclusion of the coaching search.

Video from BCSN with John Gibson, recapping the season but also spending a good chunk of time on the coaching search. Gibby believes we will hear an announcement today.

I didn't read this whole thread and have not been in the loop at all with the replacement, but on The Ticket yesterday morning, they were talking about college coaches related to Michigan and Jamie Samuelson just threw this out there: "...Brady Hoke...who's about to be named the next coach at Bowling Green..."

I about drove off the road. Anyone else heard his name mentioned anywhere?

I don't know if Jamie knows something or was just really confused about something as he first indicated incorrectly that Brady Hoke had already coached here...but was corrected by Stoney to it being Ball State.

Yahoo had mentioned Hoke because of Moose's time at SDSU. From what I've read, he was never considered.

Jamie and Stoney are idiots. No one...other than Valenti and Wojo (for humor) are worth listening to

I'm not going look through 22 pages did anyone suggest the guy we actually hired?

Don't believe so.

Not sure if good or bad.

The Blade obtained public records on the coaching search. Some really interesting nuggets here. Among them:

...the winningest head coach in the state also made a push to be considered for the Bowling Green job.

Mount Union coach Vince Kehres’ representative, Toledo attorney Bennet H. Speyer, wrote in an email that Kehres “would appreciate consideration in BGSU’s search for its next head coach.” ...

[Search coordinator Gene] DeFilippo, however, remained skeptical in email correspondence, saying he would reach out to Kehres, but he believed D-III to D-I is a “HUGE jump.”

“Coaching is coaching but hiring a staff, recruiting and administrating all the people involved in a Div 1 program is SO different and he has no Div 1 experience," DeFilippo wrote.

Real reporting would have uncovered these names BEFORE they became a matter of public record.

This story is about a month and a half late.

For 41 days all we heard was Pelini and Polian, the latter of which came from footballscoop.

Not necessarily. Government organizations sometimes go to great lengths to limit the amount of information they make available to the public before making a hire like this. Indeed, one of the reasons public entities sometimes turn to search firms for high profile hires is that it limits the amount of information in public records that must be disclosed. (I'm not saying this was part of BGSU's thinking. But it probably is a factor sometimes.)

It would have been a real challenge for The Blade to be able to authoritatively tell the public who the finalists were for this job before the hire was made if BGSU didn't want that information out there. All media had to work with was low-hanging fruit like tips here and there from agents and social media and blog chatter, all of which is pretty unreliable.
