Tedford's fate: Certainty is needed.

Tedford's fate: Certainty is needed. 


Yeah, yeah. I know what y'all want but whichever way the administration goes, it's important that the decision be made decisively immediately after the last game. It would be even better to do it now. We all know which way the season will end. One more win or (more likely) loss isn't going to make any difference. Tedford's fate should be announced ASAP - no delays, no prevarication. If Tedford is going to be retained, there's no point in leaving anybody hanging, especially recruits. If he's going to be sacked, it's even more important to get a fast decision.

Please -- lady in the AD's office. Make a decision and let us know without jerking us around.

Since buying out JT (and replacing a portion of his staff) would likely cost upwards of $7-10 million with a contract extending to 2015, I would hope that they would do it in the most advantageous manner possible, no matter how long it takes.  I would also hope that they make an effort to get someone with a realistic chance of being better than JT in the long run. 

Incidentally, Tedford and AD Barbour are apparently meeting to discuss JT's future next week:

The season was over on the first play of the Nevada game. 


I noticed the article that you link. He really sums up the season. When you look at it in retrospect, the season ended on the first play of the first game when Tedford sprang the Maynard suspension on everyone and upset the flow of the whole season.

Or....maybe JT made things better than they would have been had he not taken disciplinary action.  Come on, bro.  He's got to be allowed to discipline when, where and how it's needed in his view.  There are so many things going on inside that team that we don't know and can't know.  I'm hard-pressed to second-guess him to that extent.

Tedford made this mess from years of neglect for the O Line recruitment and development,  This years O Line is the worst in probably 20 years.  With leading the NCAA in sacks allowed etc, this speaks volumes to the lack of attention to this critical unit for offense.  When the lineman are talking about 'communication' in week 7 that points out how ineffective/unprepared they were.  Having a decent QB is the other important element to the offense and Tedford has clearly failed in recruitment and development in the area as well.  This 'elite 11' QB crap is just that if the best the Bears have is a starter with the talent level of maynard.  He wouldn't have played on any other Pac 12 team.  I think the WAC Conference would have been difficult for him for the most part.

I agree that discipline is essential, but couldn't Tedford have may Maynard run 500 bleachers rather than miss the first part of the first game in the newly renovated stadium?  I just think a little perspective in the penalty for missing a couple of tutoring sessions would have improved the tenor of the season.
