JoePa To Talk With Employer

Really? This is news? Really? They are going to talk over the next couple of months. Months?! That is on the front page of ESPN and SI right now.

I don't have much to add except to comment on this specifically:

"Good planning requires we do that in all sports, in the back of your mind, you have a backup plan in place," he [Curley] said. "It wouldn't be something that I'd want to state publicly what I'd be thinking, but hopefully a good manager has that in their hip pocket."

In other words, Curley doesn't like the FSU succession plan. At least not in the long term, publicly stated sense. I'm ok with this, if for any other reason the FSU thing isn't fun anymore. This is. It can be painful too, but that's life I guess.

Do I think this is a good move? I'm not sure. Yes? On one hand it calms everyone down, which is nice. But then again it might not. This meeting is held annually and I can't remember the announcement of it being as big a deal as this one is. It's better than not saying anything, so I have to give them that.
