  1. Many of you got what you wished for.
    Boise State likes him in their program.

  2. from DC at a Pac10 school to linebacker’s coach at a school that’s gradually getting pushed out of the BCS picture entirely? odd. well. enter tosh lupoi, I guess.

  3. Let the ‘guessing’ and ‘speculation’ game begin.
    Did he surprise Tedford or was he ‘encouraged’ to find another job.

  4. As long as the new DC runs the 3-4 I think the players will be okay, but perhaps shocked like everyone else. The positions coaches will still be there so I think that helps.

    I always like Bob Gregory and thought he did well until this past season. I think it was a combo, probably was family stuff but Tedford didn’t stop him either.

    It’ll be interesting to see who gets hired.

  5. Oh! My! My! What is going on with Gregory. Leave Cal for a demotion at B.S. Some body need to answer why. Maybe, the Bois got too much $$$$$ the last two years to lure the top recruiter at Cal away.

    That is very sad.

  6. Wheels are falling off of the program. Obviously this was planned awhile back and he waited until after the signing period was over. We don’t do these kind of things at USC.

  7. Focus on the positive for Bob and his family. Focus on getting the best DC possible, Oregon’s Nick Aliotti comes to mind. Don’t know if he’d do it, but what a great addition he’d make.
