South Carolina Interviews Chad Morris

GAMECOCK BRASS MEET WITH FORMER CLEMSON OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR

Southern Methodist University head football coach Chad Morris is highly unlikely to become the next head coach at the University of South Carolina.  In fact most insiders probably wouldn’t even put the former Clemson offensive mastermind on the “short list” for the Gamecock job.

Nonetheless, South Carolina athletics director Ray Tanner flew to Dallas, Texas on November 22 to meet with the young coach.

Tanner and several other representatives of the school met Morris  in the conference room of the General Aviation terminal at Love Field.  The meeting lasted roughly an hour, we’re told.

Tanner and his entourage reportedly took a chartered flight in order to throw those tracking the University’s two public planes.

Morris, 46, was a high school coach for a decade-and-a-half in Texas before being tapped as assistant head coach/ offensive coordinator at Tulsa in 2010.  After a year with the Golden Hurricane, he was hired as Clemson’s offensive coordinator – unleashing an up-tempo, spread offense on the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) that helped produce a whopping 42 wins from 2011-14.

Morris was the highest-paid assistant coach in America during his four years in Tigertown – with good reason.

In 2012, the Tigers’ offense average 512.7 yards and 41 points per game.  The following year the numbers were almost identically gaudy – 507.7 yards and 40.2 points per game.  In 2014 – which was widely viewed as a rebuilding year offensively  – Clemson still averaged more than 400 yards per game.

Things haven’t gone so well at SMU, though.  The Mustangs have posted a 2-9 record in Morris’ first year in Dallas – and rumors abound that he’s looking to grab one of the many available coaching openings heading into the 2016 season.

Morris’ Mustangs close out their 2015 season this weekend against the Memphis Tigers, whose fourth-year head coach Justin Fuente is rumored to be on South Carolina’s short list (along with Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart).

In other South Carolina coaching news, Houston University head coach Tom Herman – believed by many to be the frontrunner for Gamecock job – has reportedly taken his name out of consideration for the position.

South Carolina’s coaching job came open earlier this year when eleventh-year head coach Steve Spurrier resigned midway through the season.  Interim head coach Shawn Elliott has posted a 1-3 mark since taking over for Spurrier.

South Carolina is 3-8 on the year – its worst record since 1999, when the team lost all eleven games under first-year head coach Lou Holtz.

You continue to show just how idiotically dogmatic you are. You have garnet-colored blinders on that prevent you from looking at anything objectively. I am a USC grad, but I’m not a blind fanatic like you are. Dabo may play an easier schedule than SEC teams do, but that gap continues to close year after year as the SEC continues to take a beating and show itself to be overrated. If the New England Patriots played Clemson’s schedule and won all their games, would you say the Patriots weren’t that good just because they played a somewhat weak schedule? That would an incredibly stupid argument. Clemson played a legitimate program last year in their bowl (a team also currently slated to gain a playoff spot) and kicked their ass, even with “Three and Out” Stoudt playing QB. So quit pulling excuses out of your ass. Has playing a tough schedule helped us out? Not if you consider getting owned by the Citadel a telling factor.

You make some good points.
It appears to some of us ‘miles’ away that Dabo is just a goofy ass 7 year-old (watch him on the sidelines) that back stabbed his former head coach for the alumni to get the job and who uses his faith when it only benefits his public persona.

Dabo couldn’t handle a ‘big’ job,His immaturity is obvious and the players would turn on his childish/phony antics in a minute if they started losing.The players run these programs.

We will see this Saturday if Urban Meyer learned anything from Florida and has control of his locker room (my sources say yes) at Michigan this Saturday. Ohio State has a record 5 projected 1st round picks for 2016.Dabo wouldn’t survive ONE year at Ohio State.

His former offensive coordinator Tom Hermon now at the University of Houston (NOWHERESVILLE) was offered the USC job and determined it was loserville.Only 300 high schools in the state and they have to split D-2 talent with Clemson.

Morris does not come anywhere close to having a resume that would qualify him to be a head football coach in the SEC.
While USC is not among the top tier programs in the SEC, the SEC is probably the premier college football conference in the US.The only drawback in that regard is that USC is a relative newcomer to the SEC, but no big deal, still the top conference. And any ambitious coach, it seems would want to coach in what is regarded as the premier conference.
In some respects, I don’t think it will be hard to get a top ranked coach, if you have the money, facilities, and the desire to have a top flight football program.
And what ever became of the idea to try to recruit some of those SEC Western division head coaches over to the Eastern conference, where the competition is not as tough, but it is still the SEC. Les Miles of LSU(he has recently fallen on hard times at LSU) and Gary Mullen come to mind.

While Alabama has won the National Championship three times in the last ten years(2005-2014), four other other SEC teams, Florida(3), LSU(2), Auburn, and Tennessee, in the last twenty years(1995-2014), have also won the National Champion ship. Ten Championships in last twenty years, by five different teams, that is not bad. Over time, it indicates that the SEC has been a solid football conference, winning the National Championship ten times with four different teams.
Over the last twenty years, the SEC has been the best college football conference and will remain so, with a number of teams acquitting themselves quite well.

3.THE Ohio State University

I agree that SEC has been the best football conference the last 10 years HOWEVER they are WAY down this year , top to bottom.

After Alabama they are very weak and we all saw how The Ohio State University manhandled the Tide in the BCS game last year.

Luckily, I’m ahead of the game, as I have studied and given draftable grades to 12 Buckeyes with NFL potential. And that is probably a conservative number. That dozen does not include QB J.T. Barrett (I actually have a 1st/2nd on him for future reference) who backed up Jones in Monday night’s win over Virginia Tech. Nor does it include juniors CB Eli Apple and S Tyvis Powell. They too figure to have NFL futures at some point; I just hadn’t fully studied them this summer.

If all draft eligible Buckeyes declare for 2016, there’s a chance they’ll have the most selections by a program in any one draft. The all-time mark in a seven round draft is 14, held by none other than Ohio State in 2004..

Hard to argue with Chad Morris’s success at Clemson, but too often he only new one speed, full throttle. Their were times when Clemson’s defence just got off the field after a South Carolina 8 minute drive that I wish our offense could eat some time instead of trying to score in three plays, so our defense could rest.

Chad didn’t have patience enough to develop any power rushing. I know you can’t compare a healthy DeShawn Watson to what Chad Morris had, but our current offense can score in three plays or eat 7 minutes off the clock. It can get a lead, come from behind or preserve a lead. This year’s offense can tire out their defense and rest ours. It can manage the clock whether there is 8 minutes left in the half or 40 seconds. It’s not just because of Watson that Clemson’s offense is better. The rushing is better, the play calling is better and the game management is better.

There is no end to the money that USC athletic will spend. Chartered jets, luxury hotels, and the lack of accountability at all levels.

They don’t even worry about the conflicts of interest. In fact, check out the small number of people that file economic disclosure statements and then compare to the weak internal policies.

USC athletics is a feeding frenzy by the supposed elites. They gorge on the university, the athletic program and the zealots called “fans.” It ought not to be that way but this is SC and the slimy and unethical are always risk free.

“but this is SC and the slimy and unethical are always risk free.”

First, why single out South Carolina, is big time college athletes any different at Ohio St. Miami or North Carolina. If you have been keeping up with the news, you would realize other places are much worse.

You do know that regular people work for chartered jet companies and at luxury hotels. Visiting teams and conference officials also spend in SC on those things. You know that advertising and television revenue pours into South Carolina because of University athletics. You know that revenue sports supports all the other athletes and their scholarships also.

Why do liberals despise and envy success? Why would it make you happy if athletic coaches actually flew “coach” on commercial planes?

Thumper, u are an idiot.

I’m a conservative, not a liberal.

I don’t like waste. I don’t like to disproportionate amount of money spent on sports when the point of higher educations is…higher educations.

If you believe the propaganda that sports programs pay for themselves and are not subsidized by the taxpayer, student and others then you are a fool.

There is an old saying that goes something like this: Your treasury is where your heart is. We should be emphasizing education, not money guzzling athletic programs and their elites that rape the programs for personal profit.

“We should be emphasizing education, not money guzzling athletic programs and their elites that rape the programs for personal profit.”

“the point of higher educations is…higher educations..

Colleges and Universities have many missions besides education. They do research, provide technical support to agriculture and other industries. There is a mutually beneficial synergy that comes from mixing those missions. They also provide students with experience in arts, community service and social recreation.

Sports enhance the educational mission. Each benefits from the other. Many of the finest professors, researchers and students from arround the country come to USC or Clemson, who would’ve never heard of The University South Carolina or Clemson without sports.

NCAA sports are a marketing bonanza for colleges and universities. Even schools that don’t make a profit, recognize the importance sports are to advancing their educational mission.

Sports keeps alumni connected to their Alma Mater, which results in those schools having higher research and educational endowments as well as academic scholarships.

The principles of business work in the private sector too. As crass as it seems to you, sports with college has worked. Sports has as much to do with education as McDonald’s has to do with movies. The smart people thought they were idiots, but millions have been made by McDonald’s as well as Disney by their association.

America has the best and most popular colleges and universities in the world. Facts are that college sports increases public support for education. Your liberal ideals of “educational should be where our heart is” does not reflect the beautiful complexity of human nature. We love our schools, but college sports combines two loves in a mutually beneficial way. Liberals seek an idealized world that can never exist, conservatives look at the reality of human nature ask how can we improve it. Separating college sports from education does promote the IDEAL but in reality will cause harm to education.

The chart below reflects data obtained from the Department of Education related to revenues and expenses of this season’s pre-season top-25.  The data is from 2011-12, which is the most recent data that is publicly available. 
Football ___________ Expenses _________ Revenue
South Carolina ____ $22,063,216 _______ $48,065,096
Clemson __________ $23,652,472 _______ $39,207,780

Not so much an idiot as a “know it all” that regurgitates the party line, in this case the line created and promulgated by the Chamber of Commerce/ degreed ed-ucrats that chase public funds in the name of a “higher cause.”

Look behind the numbers and there is a different reality. Behind the propaganda you will find expensive institutions that fail to serve their target population while unjustly enriching the decision making elites.

BTW, you are arguing the liberal point of view.

Bible Thumper November 26, 2015 at 9:37 pm

You are the liberal if not communists. I used the find command to search for the word “elites” in this entire article and all the 114 comments and found it four times. It was only used four times, once in each of your comments and once when I quoted you.

You apparently resent those who are more successful than you and would like to reduce them to your level. “From each according to his ability; to each according to his need.” The communists creed. You follow The Party line, indeed.

I don’t resent others success, but to the degree that what you claim is true, it has been made worse by liberals efforts to give more taxpayer money to education in increasing numbers of ways. As for direct state funding, federal funding, student grants, federally backed loans, subsidized loans and federally guaranteed loans, what you claim is true. As these funding devices expanded, so has corruption.

The one refreshingly successful funding is sports revenue which is completely voluntary and holds “elites” ,as can be shown by the number of coaches fired, fully accountable.

After the football season ended last year a Gamecock player saw an ad for “3-Day Cruise for $99”. He calls the number and asks, “If that is the correct price when does the next cruise start?” The manager says, “The price is correct, and it starts as soon as you get here.”The
Gamecock packs a bag and goes to the office. When he turns around to pick up his bag the manager knocks him out cold with a rubber mallet. Thirty minutes later he wakes up to find himself floating down the river in a rubber raft.

Shaking his head he turns around and sees a Clemson
player he knows in a raft slowly catching up to him. When he gets close the Gamecock player asks, “Do they serve food on this cruise?” The Tiger player replies, “Well, they didn’t last year!”

One football fan lived and died by his favorite football team. He had no time for his family or friends. He could be found only on the couch, a six-pack or part of one at his side, and his eyes glued to the TV screen. One day his wife marched up in front of the
screen, opened her bath robe and in all her naked glory said with finality, “Okay, buster – PLAY ME OR TRADE ME..!!

————————————————————

Toward the end of the year, the television screen is filled with one football game after another. One football widow put on a sheer negligee and paraded herself in front of her husband. He looked up from the TV set long enough to say, “Why did you buy a gray negligee?

The wife answered, “I didn’t. It’s dust!”

“Jesus Christ, man,” protested President Clements, “you already make more than the entire
Engineering Department!”

“Yeah, maybe so, but you don’t know what I have to put up with,” Coach Swinney blustered.
“Look.” He went out into the hall and grabbed a jock who was jogging down the hallway. “Run over to my office and see if I’m there,” he ordered.

Fifteen minutes later the jock returned, sweaty and out of breath. “You’re not there, Coach,” he
reported.

“Oh, I see what you mean,” conceded President Clements, scratching his head. “I would have phoned.”

Sakerlina showed they could hang with and were a play or two from defeating Texas A&M, UT, and Florida. Oh…and The Citadel (TGB suspects the Sakerlina coaches were preparing for Clemson prior to the Citadel game…).

I expect Clemson will get its ass-kicked when it ventures away from the ACC, and a reeling SC program… But SC has the WORST assist coaches on D in football. Too many of them are ACC-level. SC lost to Clemson when Spurrier did not fire D-staff last year.

You always find a nice way to spin it to give yourself plausible deniability and cover up the fact that you are a dumbass. It’s clever, but totally transparent. Just like you devalue every Clemson win by bringing up their weak schedule. Nevermind that every time they venture outside to play another power 5 team that they beat them.

Probably the only time he got hit w/ any force, considering the small size of most ACC opponents.

If Watson gets the Heisman playing that WEAK schedule, it will be a DISGRACE to the trophy. If Clemson can beat a legitimate Top 10 team then maybe. But he’d get busted up vs a good defense.

pogo November 29, 2015 at 8:59 am

Championship teams don’t give up 32 points and get shredded like Clemson.

TARevolution November 29, 2015 at 9:15 am

Agreed. Clemson is a fraud on the national scene. The Tigers are likely a Top 10 (No. 10) team, which is very good for a program like that… but they have NO business in the NC discussion.

Clemson is not as good as USC’s 2013 squad.

If Oklahoma State beats Oklahoma later tonight in here is what the rankings would probably look like on Tuesday:

3. Iowa
4. Michigan State
5. Ohio State

IF that happens, and I don’t think it’s a crazy scenario for tonight’s games at all, the Big Ten not only gets three teams into New Years Six games, it also likely gets two teams into the College Football Playoff, with one of those teams being Ohio State and the other being the Iowa-Michigan State winner.

The Iowa-Michigan State loser would then go to the Rose Bowl, under this scenario.

If Oklahoma beats Oklahoma State, I do not think it will be possible for the Big Ten to get two teams into the playoff, unless Clemson would lose to North Carolina in the ACC title game OR Alabama would lose to Florida in the SEC title. Oklahoma will be one of the four playoff teams, along with the Iowa-Michigan State winner, plus Alabama and Clemson if those two teams win out.

It also wouldn’t surprise me to see Ohio State jump Notre Dame if the Irish beat Stanford, unless they flatten the Cardinal. The losses for Ohio State and Notre Dame both came in rainy conditions to Top Five rated foes. Granted, Notre Dame lost at Clemson and Ohio State lost at home to Michigan State.

Notre Dame best win is at home against Navy, who was ranked 16th this week but who was crushed by Houston on Friday. Ohio State just pounded Michigan State in Ann Arbor.

Bible Thumper November 28, 2015 at 7:57 pm

No conference is going to send two teams. Your best chance is FSU beats Florida who beats Alabama. Stanford beats ND then gets beat by USC. Winner of Oklahoma -Oklahoma St. goes no matter what. Winner of Clemson – UNC goes no matter what. UNC will be on the top ten this week.

pogo November 28, 2015 at 8:32 pm

Florida is out too, but there is little chance they can beat Alabama. The only way Florida can score is if their opponents down the ball in their own end zone.

Your only slim thread of hope is if UNC beats Clemson and the committee passes over UNC and purhaps a one loss Iowa if they lose. A one loss, 12 win Clemson may outrank Ohio State.

pogo November 29, 2015 at 10:24 am

If Iowa loses they are not only out of the playoffs but also they will be passed over by Ohio State for the Rose Bowl.

ACC is OUT if Clemson loses.Clemson gave up 32 points to a team that just got beat by the Citadel. UNC has NO respect.Committee knows Ohio State has the best defense in the country and why Alabama and Ohio State are the best two teams in the country.Oklahoma gives up to many points but are in.

Bible Thumper November 29, 2015 at 10:32 am

Ohio State isn’t even going to send a candidate to NYC for the Heisman Trophy. Elliott is out. DeShaun Watson will be there. The committee likes Clemson and Ohio St., but Watson gives Clemson the edge.

—————————————–

Three universities are wooing a high school football star. The player shows up at South Carolina where he notices a red telephone on Coach Spurrier’s desk. He asks, “What’s that phone for?”

“Oh, that,” replies Spurrier. “That’s our hot line to Heaven.”

“Gee, could I borrow it?” asks the football star.

“Sure, but it’ll cost you a $100 per minute.”

“Oh, that’s too steep for me.”

The player then visits Clemson next and sees a blue phone on Coach Swinney’s desk. He asks, “What’s that blue phone for?”

““That’s our hot line to Heaven.”

The football star asks, “Can I make a call?”

“Yeah, but it’ll cost you a $100 per minute.”

“Oh, gee. I don’t have that kind of
money. Thanks anyway.”

For the third leg of his university visits, the football player goes to Notre Dame. There he sees a gold telephone on Coach Kelly’s desk. “What’s that phone for?” he asks.

““That’s our hot line to Heaven,” says Coach Kelly.

“Mind if I borrow it?”

“Not at all, but we have to keep our costs down so I’m afraid I’ll have to ask you to pay for the call.”

“And how much is that, sir?”

“Ten cents a minute.”

“Ten cents a minute to call Heaven! Wow! How come it’s so cheap?”

The Fighting Irish Coach responds, “Because it’s only a local call.”

After yesterdays games and the two top teams barely beating weak teams, while OU smoked a top 12 Oklahoma St on the road here is how I see the playoff picture now.
1 Oklahoma
2 Clemson
3 Alabama (unless Michigan st wins next week if so insert them here)
4 Iowa/ Michigan st ( only if its Iowa, if Michigan St wins insert Bama here)
Projected match ups will be
Semi finals #2 Clemson vs #3 Michigan St
#4 Bama vs #1 Oklahoma
Finals
#3 Michigan St vs. #4Bama
Winner #3 Michigan St
If they didn’t get hosed by the bad call vs Nebraska where the WR clearly went out of bounds but still wasn’t over turned and cost them the game they would be 12-0 and a clear #1 after the close wins by Clemson over such weak teams in recent weeks. Don’t get me wrong Clemson is easily one of the two best right now, and completely deserve to be where they are, but no matter the match up with those 4 they wont win the semi finals unless they get Iowa in the semi’s. Watson will be a close 2nd for the Heisman too, in my opinion should win, but I don’t see it going to anyone other than Henry right now. Im trying to do this honestly without bias, and its just my opinion obviously.

Defense wins championships,Neither Oklahoma or Clemson have one that is good enough to win a national championship.

You mentioned the Nebraska game in which Michigan State lost.You failed to mention the Michigan game in which Michigan dominated Michigan State, was up 3 and only had to punt and game over.We all saw that fluke Michigan State win.The same Michigan team Ohio State beat by 29 on the road.They should NOT be 12-0.

If Ohio State played MSU 10 times they would beat em 9.If Ohio State doesn’t get in Alabama can’t be beat.

yes but a refs wrong call didn’t cause the outcome of the Michigan st/ Michigan game, You failed to notice one was a human error, the other was a lucky play (much like the kick 6 for Auburn that won them a game, the SEC title and almost a national title) one is part of football and happens in every game, the other changed the correct outcome of a game even when every piece of video replay showed the refs to be wrong they still wouldn’t over turn it. But you are right about 1 thing OSU doesn’t get in unless and only unless Bama gets upset by Florida. but no OSU wouldn’t win 9-10, but it doesn’t matter as they lost this one, and it cost them the playoffs. Couldn’t win with it on the line so not a championship team and don’t deserve to be there because of it. Right now the best team in the country might be MSU or it might be Clemson, but it isn’t OSU
