A key domino has fallen in what is sure to be the one of the hottest coaching searches this winter. Now, that Dave Brandon has resigned as Michigan’s AD the Wolverines can use his vacant seat as a bargaining chip to lure the next head coach.
Nick Saban is pissed off and he wants you to know it. He’s pissed off because football is a game and it’s supposed to be fun—fun for his players, fun for his coaches, fun for him. How dare people say they’re frustrated with an ugly win? How dare they?
We’re through seven weeks in college football. Three jobs are open, looks like three BIG 10 jobs will certainly be, and is Michigan locking in on a potential candidate?
The seventh week of college football means the firing season has officially begun. Sure, three coaches have already found their way to the Extinct Species List, but that’s just a warm up for what’s ahead.
Heading into Week 6, we’re starting to get a feel for the identity of the top teams. It’s still too early to pick clear favorites for the first College Football Playoff, but we’re starting to get an idea about who those top 4 teams may be. It’s never mattered less who is sitting at number 1, but it appears that the AP Poll has picked its favorite.
From 1993-2001 the defining moment in the SEC season was always the Florida-Tennessee game, usually the third or fourth week of the season in September. Whoever won that game went on to win the SEC East and then turned whoever won the West into a sacrificial lamb.
There haven’t been very many defining moments in the series since then, a series dominated by Florida, which has won the last 10 games.
Here we are, just days away from October and we’ve only had one firing. Okay, technically speaking June Jones (Wink! Wink!) resigned at SMU but are you buying that story? Of course, you’re not. Just like you shouldn’t be buying the story that Will Muschamp is teetering on the verge of a firing.
