Corching K-Ro-Sell
« on: November 22, 2021, 12:08:31 PM »
It's that time of year when coaches around the country start packing their bags, and sports agents start licking their chops.  Gonna be another mighty fine Christmas for the Jimmy Sextons of the world.  Suddenly, with the canning of our favorite....you know him, you love him, can't live without him....Dan Mullen...there are 3 very high profile jobs open right now.  Four, if you count The U. Probably many more in the next week or two.

USC and LSU pulled the trigger early on, which I think was smart.  They've had weeks to conduct their searches and make their contacts, instead of having to fight with everyone at the end of the season. Unless they're both total water heads, I imagine they'll be making announcements as soon as this rivalry weekend is over.

Mel Tucker was a hot name for LSU, at least as far as the rumor mill goes.  I sure hope the ink dried on that new contract with the Spartans before THE Ohio State University went in dry.  Looks like some of the shine came off that bald head.  Same with Mario Crystal Ball.  If he was the hot ticket, that should have cooled off a good bit when the Utes went dry up that shute.

So, who does Gusty Gaytah go after?  Do they swing for the fences, because they sure haven't since Meyer left.  And where does Mullen go?  Does he join Urban in Jacksonville as OC? 

How about Miami?  I don't understand how you cannot be top 10 every freakin' year in one of the most talent rich areas in the country.

If Harbaugh gets pummeled again by tOSU, does Michigan finally part ways with him? I'll bet they do. And the Buckeyes looked scary good Saturday.  Stroud and those receivers are going to be hell to stop for anybody. 

On a local note, former Auburn OC, Chip Lindsey, was shown the door by Troy.

Any other hot seat takes?

You hear that, or an educated guess?  Gotta figure that Okie State will be the big man on the block once OU leaves, right?  Does that make their path to the playoff easier, or would an SEC runner up get in over an undefeated B12 champ?

Will Harsin bolt to UDub?  If so, who would we realistically be in the hunt to get to replace him?

Just a guess.  I wouldn't want to roll the dice on the corpse of that conference remaining viable.  He's got plenty of T Boone's $$$, so maybe he'll stick around.  Who knows?

Will Harsin bolt to UDub?  If so, who would we realistically be in the hunt to get to replace him?

Seriously doubt it.  P-12 is even less relevant than the bones of the Big 12.

Florida is absolutely Moronic if they don't at least TRY to get Lane Kiffin.....what he could do with the recruiting and talent advantage Florida has - is downright scary.

I wouldn't want Hugh Freeze anywhere near my campus. Snake oil.

I don't know who LSU is after but if they don't drive the Brinks trucks to Oxford they are stupid!  The only recruiting battles LSU has is against bammer. Lane can recruit and that state is always deep with talent plus the Texas haul they always get.  He would have way more talent in Red Sticks than Oxford.  I shutter to think of what he would do down there.

Riley to USC
Lashlee to SMU

Gusty Gaytah inks Napier.

So the question, which we'll never know the answer to, is whether or not the decision for OU to join the SEC factored in to Riley's decision?  He'll never say it did, but I'm thinking it had to.  However, it may be as simple as not wanting to spend years in Oklahoma, as opposed to the bright lights, unbelievable weather, and all that goes with southern California.

I said way back that USC and LSU were smart to make their moves before the season was half over.  They had a jump on everybody else in finding their coach. You know damn well Riley has had this job for weeks.  But that begs the question(s), what's going on at LSU?  Did they have Riley, Tucker or Franklin in their sights, and got jilted by both?  Was Billy Napier ever an option, but Florida snatched him up quick?  Are coaches turned off by what may be coming down the pike on that program?

Or, it could be simple in LSU's case as well.  They may be waiting on the conference championships to be over next week, because it may be someone coaching in one of those games.  Mario Crystal Ball?

Scuttlebutt is that the LSU AD is chugging Jimbo's balls.  Aranda is the easy choice.  Lane is a wildcard, but would produce offense for a year or two.

I don't think LSU thinks Cristobal is a "splash".

If you believe Scott Stricklin at face value, he says Napier is the only candidate he talked to, interviewed or wanted...period. Little weird to me when you are Florida but whatever floats his boat.

I don't think LSU thinks Cristobal is a "splash".

Fisher had an outstanding record at FSU. 83-23.  He had three 10 win seasons after the Natty, but things seemed to sour a little more each year.  At A&M, he is 34-14 so far, and in my opinion, has done an extremely underwhelming job, given the resources he has at that school.  I got the impression that A&M went full Saban with the guy and said, "Here's the keys.  It's your program."  But there's been no splash.

No doubt the guy is a good coach, but damn, he's so easy to hate.

Agree.  It seems the Fighting Percy Harveys have a long history of Hires that make you think, well that wasn't a home run, but it might work.  Ron Zook, Charlie Skrong, Will Muschamp, Jim McElwain, Dan Mullen.  Now Billy Napier.  On the surface, he looks solid.  But like so many, including Harzinz, he'll have to make a huge adjustment from the Sun Belt to this league.  Every little thing is magnified 1,000X.

Florida is probably the "Best" job in the conference. It has the fan support, stadium, money, location, recruiting, nattys.....It's Florida. I just think you have to interview a few big names before calling it a day. I absolutely think Lane jumps all over that job if asked. Napier may be fine but sheesh....

I doubt it. 

If that is his only option, then I'd bet on him dragging Spencer Rattler through the portal and hanging his hat on Arch Manning's future.

Interesting.  The only drawback may be salary.  Damn, how crazy does that sound?  He's making $4.5 right now.  Diaz is making $3.1.  Richt was barely making over $4 mil and could have gone as high as $5 mil.  Regardless, I think Lane could make a good bit more staying in the SEC.  I don't think The U has ever been committed to opening up that checkbook to take that program back to prominence.  Somebody with knowledge of a source who is close to someone that has knowledge of the process, correct me if I'm wrong.
