No offense to Rhoads intended, in any way, but why would Illinois go from a coach who just went 6-6 to one who is about to average about 6-6 over 3 straight years? Okay, losing to Minnesota should send anyone packing, and I guarantee Rhoads would never lose to a piece of garbage team like that - it would be as preposterous as him losing to Colorado or something like that...
Don't get me wrong - I believe that if Illinois could see the forest for the trees and could woo Rhoads away, he'd win the Legos division (or the other one - Liters? I'm still trying to get them straight) in year 2, and probably take the title, to boot.
But, from a booster/Illini fan perspective, you'd get tons of resistance. They don't want another firebreather: they want an effective, professional game manager (what most outside observers don't realize is that Rhoads is special at both).
Trust me when I say that in almost every open BCS position, particularly the "average" ones, Pauls Rhoads will be thought about.
