I hate to say it, but every time I see the Bison piss-pound someone in the playoffs I get more frustrated with Bubba's lack of action after last season. If he thinks he can win at this level with Rudolph calling the plays then maybe he isn't the man for the job.
He has seen first hand as an NHL assistant under his buddy Scott Arniel how fast you get fired, and now to see Hakstol recover a bit from the fire he was under a few weeks ago, I’m sure he likes the pressure to win here more. Heard he is content to be here around family as well. Wonder if Blais has second thoughts about leaving. Schlossman’s stat about Hakstol being one of the longest tenured coaches certainly is alarming and would give one pause.
With Sam Houston St now out of the playoffs, would not surprise me if the WAC invited SW teams for FBS.
The Big West is already covered for losses, with their recent additions of UCSD and Bakersfield, which the Big West was formerly steadfastly against adding.
