So your sources know we approached another OL coach and Trickett doesn't know this? I can't imagine Jimbo making overtures like that and involving anyone else much less allowing someone who would share it with a message board poster to be involved. Call me skeptical.
No, what I said is I don't know if Trickett knows one way or the other. I actually suspect he does know.
Do you think Jimbo was going to buyout Trickett out of his own pocket? someone(s), some adm had to be willing to write the check if the ol coach (target) was willing to come here.
When you ask someone or some entity for money they usually ask you why you want it. Admittedly, a bit of a simplification but it makes the point.
As to the Golsen/Trickett being here for 4 years thing, I am surprised this had an effect on any recruit. Is it really surprising someone may not still be coaching when he is 68-69 years old?
It may be just an excuse being used by Golsen because he is in love.
Jimbo made a run at a different OL coach, but to do so had to ask boosters if they'd be willing to cover his buyout, and didn't tell his long time family friend, but the news got out to a nearly-illiterate message board poster who just so happens to spend all his words talking about how bad Trickett is.
I'll believe it when me poop turns purple and smells like rainbow marshmallows.

Now that's funny! I knew j996 was smart, but never suspected he could expel magic out of his anal orifice with such aplomb. I thought that was the province and trick of ANOTHER poster from planet 2 or 7 or something like that. Looks like Uncle Nash was wrong again. It is known.
Canolee was being looked at as our new OL coach. Turned us down, 'cause his family loves snow and the glee of driving on ice with other thrill seekers up in the frozen tundra. Oh, what coulda been!
Fisher is no fool. I suspect he desires fresh, and in his mind better leaders to overcome the obstacles in his path to a MNC. He may not be smooth with it, but he IS all about it. This is also known.
I don't think Jimbo was going to buyout someone from his own pocket, but I would imagine before he went to multiple people to talk about a buyout he would have interest from a coach in coming onboard. You know, to limit the amount of people that would know what he was doing.
No interest from the guy you like, you've spoken to one person about this. Asking for approval from a board makes it more likely your information winds up on a message board.
