Balado is a good guy and I hope he has a bright future ahead of him in this sport. I just can't ever root for anyone who is employed at FIU

Great hire for FIU.  Balados a good guy for sure - but Ill never root for him at FIU, even though I like him.

Great guy, great recruiter. Is he the number 1 assistant? I would assume so or it's not a step up for him.

I fully expect the students to get some chants going at him against us at home. I feel like he cheated on me.

I don't know if there are any students who were around when he was here. This is going to be Jarvis' 5th season I think, right? Maybe some grad students are around who know who he is but that would probably be it. Rex hasn't been the HC since '08

What evidence is there that the guy is a great recruiter??  We weren't exactly racking up wins when he was here…
