I read on the internet that Missouri St is hiring Art Briles.

If so; wow.
Missouri State is a program I've thought for a long time could move up to FBS if it committed. MO is getting to be too big of a state to only have 1 program in FBS.

Illinois St has a better program (ask CSU & Northwestern), a more populous state, and slightly better facilities. They'd also fit better in the MAC footprint.

I know one of the dad's of one key returning player for UNC next year and he is pissed about the Eddie Mac hiring. Said he has not been back in Greeley since the presser and they have not seen him, talked to him, nor have any idea who the staff will be (outside of what Bear Friend put up above). As of a week ago, they had one phone call before Xmas. He thinks this is going to be a train wreck
But, but,but he's a Bronco....
