    My thoughts exactly. Kentucky has an awful lot going for them right now, including program success, in-state recruits, and out-of-state recruits. Louisville football is pretty significantly behind Kentucky in all of those areas right now.

    Does Satterfield/Appalachian State have a strong recruiting game right now? I honestly have no idea.

    Personally, I think an outsider is what Louisville needs. Change the entire culture. Not saying Brohm wouldn稚 have, but I like this hire better than Brohm. Couldn稚 have went wrong either way though.

    App State has had some really good olines. Great hire.

    Out of the frying pan and into the fire. Satterfield's first game is going to be against Notre Dame and we have no clue what the roster is going to look like. Should be an interesting few months. We don't know all the dates yet, but here are Louisville's 2019 opponents:

    Home
    Notre Dame
    Eastern Kentucky
    Boston College
    Clemson
    Syracuse
    Virginia

    Away
    Western Kentucky
    Kentucky
    Florida State
    Miami
    NC State
    Wake Forest

    Tough year for both Notre Dame and Miami to come up on the ACC contract rotations.

    Also, the fact that we play Miami twice before we see Virginia Tech even once is just silly. This rotation is terrible and I hate divisional scheduling in college football.

    Always interesting with these types of mid major hires. It can go either way. He is accustomed to coaching kids that played with "chips on their shoulders", due to not being heavily recruited. For Louisville to keep competitive they will need better recruits than App State. I think he's a good coach though, his teams at App State were always well prepared and played really hard.

    I don't really have an opinion one way or another on the hire. I don't hate it, but I'm not excited about it either. He seems to check the boxes of someone you'd want in a head coach, but we'll see if it translates into wins. Next year will be ugly because of the schedule, so we can go ahead and write that one off.

    So much of that is going to come down to his assistants. We don't know who he's going to hire or if some of his current staff will be retained as coaches at App State in some role. Having top recruiters as position coaches is absolutely essential at the ACC level, something Petrino failed at spectacularly.

    All I want next year is progress. I could even settle for a two or three win season as long as we're starting to look competitive in some of these games we lost this year by 40-plus points.

    I like him a lot. I think this is what Louisville needs right now. There's not a lot of fan fare and hype behind the hire. I think this gives him a chance to come in with the right assistants and get it done. Like someone earlier said; it may not be a home run but it is a really good hire IMO.

    Kentucky isn't the measuring stick. Especially not after one good season.

    In regards to recruiting, AppState's top RB recruit for the coming season is apparently now on radar for Louisville. Has offers from Georgia, Auburn and Bama, among others.

    How long will be measured up against whatever Brohm does at Purdue?

    Not the name recognition most fans probably want, but guy seems like a good coach.

    Hopefully the fan base shows patience with him and let's him build the program his way.

    There are the Twitter nuts who weren't going to be happy unless it was Brohm or Nick Saban. Not literally Saban, but someone who they knew and is already in the spotlight. The fact of the matter is very rarely does a Power 5 hire a coach away from another Power 5, and the schools that are able to do it are well established programs. Louisville isn't that, yet.
