    I agree somewhat, but he did get a substantial pay raise to come here ($153K to $215K). It just illustrates how big the gap in pay, prestige, etc. is between FBS and FCS.

    Yeah, it's interesting.

    I would think if his goal was to become a P5 HC then staying at Maine, even if it means less money, would be better long term for his career than a position coach at a P5 school. Coming off a 10-4 year and national FCS coach of the year, I think he would be an attractive option for a G5 FBS program looking for a HC. And then from there he could go a P5 school if he is successful.

    Being a position coach at Minnesota would mean in order to advance his career, he would either have to go back as a HC at the FCS level, something he already has done, become a coordinator for an FBS team or take a job as a position coach at a helmet school. Seems like a lot more steps than just sticking as the HC at Maine.

    Of course maybe he doesn't about becoming a HC in the FBS and just wants to make as much money as possible. But even then I feel like long term staying at Maine would be best. Oh well, I'm not complaining, very happy with the hire.

    It is a huge gap. The only coach I've ever gotten to really know is Dennis Franchione when we we're both living in New Mexico. Prior to him being at New Mexico he was HC at Pittsburg State (a D-II team) for five years, winning the conference title each year, and ending up with a 53–6 record. 53-6 and he still couldn't land a decent D-1 job. He ended up taking the HC position at New Mexico, one of the worst places in the country to be a HC, and from there then moved on to TCU and on up.

    Anyone know when Benjamin St-Juste will be added to the roster?

    He must have been added today. Here’s the link to his bio.

    Jim Tressel jumped from Youngston St. (FBS) to Ohio State.

    I’d be curious to know also.

    Me too. I was hoping he would be an instant impact. Ryan Burns doesn't seem to know much about what it's going on too.

    I'm glad Bateman didn't get moved to LB. Thanks for putting my mind at ease PJ!

    Edmonds likely will never be a starter on this team with Ibrahim and Williams clearly ahead of him. Just a hunch on the reason why he is no longer with the program.

    He was "outrecruited" at his position to use PJF's term.

    The only way he can be a starter early is to transfer.

    I see him on the roster now.

    Sorry for the duplicate answer.

    Regarding Nolan Edmonds, maybe one or two of the two new freshman were passing him up on the depth chart leaving him at option #6 or lower. At that point, you just aren't going to play even after the two seniors leave.
