Is this a good fit! My answer......NO!

Ruhle played at Penn State. He's a straight up PA guy. At Temple, he was able to take advantage of the Philly, rest of PA and Jersey corridor. That recruiting region is one of the best in the country. But he knows PA, Philly and Jersey......not Texas!

Yes, he's a 'clean up' coach, on and off the field, both of which Baylor needs bad! But correct me if I'm wrong, some folk at Baylor still wanted to keep Briles! This is gonna be very interesting to see how he relates to the people at Baylor....!

Good hire. He can find guys who know Texas, anyway. Baylor has a shiny stadium that plenty of good players will gladly help out and take an available scholly to play in...

I hear he loves using TEs and FBs. Love that. That's usually more matchup issues with matador like Big 12 defenders.

Well, he played for JoePa (his position coach was Jerry Sandusky), was HC at Bill Cosby's Alma Mater..... so maybe that has prepared him to coach at Baylor.


He certainly has stepped into a dumpster fire, but if he can generate any enthusiasm for the program, more power to him.

Rhule seems to be the real deal. Hopefully the Temple assistants he is bringing with him can bring some solid defense to the Big 12. Hiring the president of the Texas High School Coaches Association as part of his staff was a great choice too.. that should really help with in state connections and recruiting. He is bringing more enthusiasm to the program than what has been seen in well over a year.

Hopefully he is a breath of fresh air and can get the program back on track.

Temple defensive coordinator Phil Snow, who probably though not definitely will join Matt Rhule's staff at Baylor, did a tremendous job with Temple's defense the last 2 1/2 years. The Owls were one of the best defensive teams in the country during that time, and probably fielded their strongest defensive unit this season.

It does take a little time for Snow to implement his defensive scheme and for the players to fully grasp it (in Temple's case, it was roughly 1 1/2 seasons), but Snow knows what he's doing.
