I knew that from when the job was opened. It was a front National Search more like clown search. Made it look like an effort was being put forward.  Now it's Riccio . Oh I'll take it since nobody wants it.He was the only candidate from Day 1. Clown search! !

Riccio sat in on everyone else’s interview...if he gets this job then something is seriously wrong with this picture....very unfair.

This sounds like a solid hire with Philly R. It worked the first time he was the HC. I don’t know what is a bigger joke this so called national search or this guy. In my opinion, they didn’t give Felus enough time  My guess they put all their eggs into the Steve Tanneyhill basket and came up empty, so now let’s backtrack with a blast from the past wonder if Ed Dalton or Tom Palfey would be interested.

what I meant- If you put Altoona's AD in charge at BG, they don't have the same success.  Yes, they have open boundaries that help, but their AD and football coach work it to be successful.    Put Riccio at BG, no state titles...

I was told he didn’t want to hire Tanneyhill because he knew he couldn’t control him or get rid of him if he wanted to like he did to Felus. But it/he is the joke like everyone knows already.

Well now Steve Tanneyhill was a above average D-1 player at South Carolina while Phil was a just a average mascot at Juniata
College.  It would make sense to pick Phil again, hopefully the school board will go in Phil the mascots favor 5-4.
For out of towners the 5-4 has been the normal vote the past year.   Go get-em Phil.   Rah-Rah, Sha Bang.
