Despite snags with Cristobal, RU selected its next head coach with relative ease. IMO, Flood has been very professional about putting himself in this position. He helped bring calm to RU Nation after Schiano's departure. And, he made it fairly easy to negotiate a contract quickly even though he could have leveraged the post-Cristobal chaos.
I'll end here because Jon will Izenberg this better than me. But, use this post for discussions.
