Post Week 2 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings – 1 – 10 Hot Seat Head Coaches
These Coaches on the Hot Seat might not like it Mr. Cash…but Give Them Hell Anyway!
1. Les Miles, LSU – When you have a quarterback that has played as much football as LSU QB Brandon Harris it’s the Height of Idiocy for that QB to have his head coach saying things like this about him…
….because reality is Les Miles…either Brandon Harris is by now…
Ready to Play Football or Not Ready to Play Football
…and any random teenager that is fan of the great game of football can see that…
Brandon Harris is just Flat-Out NOT Ready to Play Football!
We don’t have a clue if Purdue transfer QB Danny Etling is the answer to LSU’s offensive woes but we for Damn sure know…
There are at least three dozen 30, 40, and 50 something old former football players that are members at Coaches Hot Seat that are much older than LSU QB Brandon Harris who are right now BETTER quarterbacks than Brandon Harris will EVER be in college and with that in mind…
It’s time for Les Miles to ride Danny Etling to try and get his ass off the Hot Seat because if Brandon Harris is the LSU QB in 2016
….Les Miles will be working on TV in 2017 doing analyst work on games which isn’t a bad gig but for Damn sure it’s not the same as being the head coach of the….
LSU Tigers Football Team!
Can’t you just see Les Miles doing color on a football game on TV = “He really gave him his chest on that play!”
Yes…a win over a decent FCS team in Jacksonville State is nice but let’s not forget that in Les Miles last 20 football games against Power 5 Conference Teams he has a record of…
12 – 8
…and now over the next four weeks of the season Les Miles and LSU will get to play what is no doubt the most crucial stretch in Miles head coaching career against the following teams:
The TRUTH is that if Les Miles loses just 2 of the next 4 games against the above teams the chances of Miles returning to coach at LSU in 2017 drop to around 10% because with 3 losses on the board with still games against..
A Pretty Good Southern Miss team
At Texas A&M
….there is no way in Hell LSU loses fewer than FOUR games in 2016 and from what we have been told if LSU loses more than THREE games this season…
Les Miles is DONE in Baton Rouge
….and even THREE losses might lead to Miles firing come December if one of those losses to Alabama again.
Bottom-Line in the immediate future for Les Miles at LSU:
LSU CANNOT lose at home to Mississippi State on Saturday night….PERIOD!
2. Gus Malzahn, Auburn – As Gus Malzahn knows Arkansas State has a decent football program that has achieved a lot in recent years with a very small amount of resources especially compared to place like Auburn where Gus Malzahn has…
EVERYTHING HE NEEDS
….to win football games, SEC Conference Titles, and National Championships which brings us to the important numbers as it related to Gus Malzahn at Auburn.
Forget about Gus Malzahn’s first year at Auburn in 2013 which included just Total Fluke wins over both Georgia and Alabama which launched the Tigers into the National Title game and focus instead on the last three seasons…
2014 – 2016
….because the TREND is what is important for Malzahn and over the last three seasons Gus Malzahn’s records at Auburn now stand at:
Overall: 16 – 12
SEC: 6 – 10
Sorry….NO Coach can survive the above win-loss numbers at Auburn over even a short period of time with the amount of money that Auburn Athletics is spending on the Tigers football program which is really not an identifiable number since there is…
…that Gus Malzahn could ask for and not get which means that either Gus Malzahn performs in 2016 or there will be a new head coach of the Auburn Tigers come before the New Year.
Now at 1 – 1 on the season and Gus Malzahn needing from what we have been told in recent days…
“At least 8 wins to keep his job.”
….means that Malzahn and his Tigers will need to find 7 wins out of their remaining 10 games against:
At Mississippi State
At Ole Miss
Well…Auburn will certainly beat La. Monroe and Alabama A&M which gives Malzahn…
….which means the Tigers will need to win 5 of their remaining 8 games against…
At Mississippi State
At Ole Miss
…and if you give Auburn a win over Vandy that is…4 wins against the below 7 teams…
At Mississippi State
At Ole Miss
Hell…if Gus Malzahn and Auburn can’t win 4 games against the above 7 teams with the amount of resources and talent that Malzahn has access to then no doubt in our minds….
Gus Malzahn SHOULD be fired shortly after the Iron Bowl against Alabama in late November!
Do you think it’s important for Gus Malzahn and his Tigers to win the next 2 home games against Texas &M and LSU?
You Better Damn Believe Winning Those Two Games Is VERY Damn Important!
3. Mark Stoops, Kentucky – In his third year at Kentucky with Mark Stoops sitting on records of…
Overall: 12 – 26
SEC: 4 – 21
….and regardless of the size of Stoops buyout the margin of error is becoming smaller and smaller for Bob Stoops younger brother starting with a MUST WIN game against New Mexico State on Saturday in Lexington which with a loss would…
Effectively END the Mark Stoops Era at Kentucky
This is all very Damn simple for Mark Stoops….a defensive coach like Stoops just flat-out CANNOT give up…
44 points to Southern Miss
45 points to Florida
….and keep his job and with New Mexico State beating New Mexico this past weekend there could be a new name for “Waterloo” in the English language…
“Lexington” meaning when an era came to an end in America with this era being the Mark Stoops one at Kentucky!
4. Darrell Hazell, Purdue – Sorry…but in your FOURTH season at a Big Ten school like Purdue you should NOT be losing at home to a team like Cincinnati and with that loss to the Bearcats Darrell Hazell’s records with the Boilermakers drops to…
Overall: 7 – 31
Big Ten: 2 – 22
….and if the current trend continues one would think that Purdue will have a new head football coach come December.
Oh…a good way for Darrell Hazell to stop the “trend” would be for his football team to beat Nevada at home in their next game on September 24 before the Big Ten season gets underway!
5. Steve Addazio, Boston College – Steve Addazio’s Boston College football team HAD to beat UMass on Saturday and the Eagles got that win but then we are still talking about…
….which is about equal to beating a plate of cupcakes on any kitchen counter and that is why Addazio’s BC team needs to keep the ball rolling by beating Virginia Tech on Saturday in Blacksburg with what should be EASY WINS against Wagner and Buffalo looming in Weeks 4 and 5.
We finally got an old Boston friend of ours on the phone this past week and he did some asking around with his Boston College friends on what Addazio has to do to return for the 2017 season as head coach of the BC Eagles and his findings are:
“Win 7 football games….isn’t that pitiful?”
There you have it Steve Addazio…”win 7 football games” in your FOURTH season on the job and you will get a FIFTH season at BC!
As Jed Clampett used to tell Jethro….”Pitiful…Just Pitiful!”
6. Paul Haynes, Kent State – Paul Haynes Kent State football team lost to North Carolina A&T over the weekend in FOUR overtimes so give the Flashes props for playing hard but with that loss to NC A&T Paul Haynes records at Kent State dropped to…
Overall: 9 – 27
MAC: 6 – 17
….and remember Haynes took over a Flashes team that had won 11 games in 2012 under former KSU head coach Darrell Hazell!
Hey…there’s a thought! When Darrell Hazell gets his ass fired by Purdue later this year he should come back and coach Kent State where he won 11 games in 2012!
7. Ron Turner, Florida International – Ron Turner’s FIU team lost to Maryland on Saturday…
Alert the Press…..NOT!
…and now in his FOURTH season as the head coach at FIU Ron Turner’s records now stand at:
Overall: 10 – 28
CUSA: 7 – 17
Forget Turn Out the Lights the Party’s Over…..this Ron Turner Party at FIU NEVER Got Started!
8. Will Muschamp, South Carolina – We watched most of the Mississippi State – South Carolina game last night when it was being replayed on one of the ESPN channels and if TRUTH be neither…
MSU or USC looked like very good football teams
….not that Will Muschamp really needs a very good football team in his first season in Columbia because what he needs is SIX wins to get his ass off the Hot Seat and with these games left…
….can Coach Boom find FIVE more wins among the remaining TEN games?
Well…let’s give USC the UMass and Western Carolina games which means Coach Boom needs THREE more wins out of the remaining EIGHT games…
Hell, if Will Muschamp can’t win THREE of EIGHT football games we will fly to Columbia in early December and fire his ass ourselves!
9. Clay Helton, USC – Someone at USC got the message that Clay Helton’s ass will be run out of Los Angeles if the Trojans don’t win a Helluva lot more than SIX games in 2016 and on Saturday USC played with a lot more focus against Utah State winning 45 – 7 and up next is…
Mighty Stanford on The Farm!
For those that follow Stanford Football closely as we do here at Coaches Hot Seat it is historical that Stanford is going for…
7 wins in the last 10 games against USC
….on Saturday and even with the Trojans struggling it should be a Helluva football game because the Cardinal has a number of problems it needs to fix on both sides of the ball in what is clearly…
A MUST and DESPERATE TO WIN GAME for both Stanford and USC
….which is the kind of football game we love to watch and attend and no doubt there will be two dozen-plus from Coaches Hot Seat on The Farm on Saturday and with that mind…
Let’s Play some USC vs. Stanford Football!
As for Clay Helton the latest we have heard from our USC-alum friends in Los Angeles…
Anything LESS than 8 wins and USC is looking for a new head coach come December and that is straight from someone that could…
Buy and Sell most of Santa Monica this afternoon!
10. Kevin Sumlin, Texas A&M – Kevin Sumlin GOT the start he had to have to begin the 2016 season with wins over UCLA and Prairie View BUT what our A&M-alum family members and friends are watching is Sumlin’s record in SEC Conference play which in his FIFTH season on the job in College Station stands at…
17 – 15
….and the TRUTH is…
If Kevin Sumlin goes 4 – 4 or worse in SEC Conference play in 2016 he is DONE at Texas A&M…PERIOD.
Yes…the Auburn game on Saturday on The Plains is HUGE for both Gus Malzahn and Kevin Sumlin and that’s what makes the game so Damn delicious to those of us in the peanut gallery!
