Top 10 College Football Head Coaches Facing CANNOT LOSE Games In Week SEVEN


“They got a name for the winners in the world….I want a name when I lose…they call Alabama the Crimson Tide….call me Deacon Blues…Deacon Blues.”

Enjoy the GREAT Steely Dan performing Deacon Blues!


1.  Mark Richt, Georgia vs. Missouri – OK..let’s get the obvious out of the way…

Mark Richt is a nice guy…Yada, Yada, Yada!

…and now let’s get down to brass tacks with something that a BIG Georgia fan that lives in North Atlanta reminded us of the other day:

BIG Georgia Fan: “Not only has Georgia not won an SEC title under Mark Richt since the 2005 season but only 2 times out of the last 6 seasons has Georgia finished in the Top 10 in the final AP poll.”

We don’t really give Two Rips about polls but it is interesting that Georgia has only finished in the top ten of the final AP poll 2 times out of the past 6 seasons especially when one considers that Alabama has finished in the top 10 of the final AP poll….

7 out of the last 7 seasons!

Is there anyone that follows the game of college football that also has a working brain that believes Alabama football has ANY advantage at all over Georgia football especially when one considers how much high school football talent there is now in around the city of Atlanta, Georgia?

Didn’t think so which leads anyone that follows the game of college football that also has a working brain to realize that Georgia under Mark Richt…especially over the past FIVE to SIX seasons has….

Massively Underachieved

….but then let’s not forget…

Mark Richt is a nice guy…Yada, Yada, Yada!

Georgia is now 4 – 2 on the season and 0 – 2 in the SEC and loss at home to a very AVERAGE Missouri football team would be nothing short of a….

Complete Freaking Disaster

….and thus why Missouri is the CANNOT LOSE game of the Week here at Coaches Hot Seat!

Oh, whatever happens in the Missouri – Georgia game NEVER forget….

Mark Richt is a nice guy…Yada, Yada, Yada!


2.  Al Golden, Miami vs. Virginia Tech – Easily the most Damning record that Al Golden is sitting on as the head football coach at Miami is his ACC Conference record which now in his FIFTH season as the head coach as the Hurricanes sits at…

16 – 17

….BUT let’s be honest here….

NO Miami head football coach has done ANYTHING in the ACC since the Hurricanes joined the ACC in 2004 which includes a grand total of…

ZERO ACC Conference Titles

….and there is the REAL problem in Miami =

Miami has been hiring AVERAGE head football coaches since Butch Davis left in 2000 and in case the folks in Miami don’t know it…

You are NOT going to win a Helluva lot of football games hiring AVERAGE coaches!

Now let’s not forget that….

Al Golden is a nice guy…Yada, Yada, Yada!

…but Dammit this is about…

Graduating Players


Winning Football Games

….when you are talking about Miami Hurricanes football and thus that brings us to the Week 7 game between Virginia Tech and Miami which is clearly a…

CANNOT LOSE Game for Al Golden

…because a loss in this spot would drop the Canes ACC record to 0 – 2 this season with a game against Clemson in Week 8!

Good Luck Al Golden and yes we know…

Al Golden is a nice guy…Yada, Yada, Yada!


3.  Mike Riley, Nebraska vs. Minnesota – Talk about a nice guy…

Mike Riley is REALLY a nice guy…Yada, Yada, Yada!

…but then Mike Riley is coaching the Nebraska Cornhuskers which are now sitting on a record of….

2 – 4

….and even worse 0 – 2 in Big Ten play and the Huskers still have on their schedule this season…

At Minnesota
At Purdue
Michigan State
At Rutgers

Damn… you think this week’s game at Minnesota is a…

CANNOT LOSE Game for Mike Riley and Nebraska?

Damn right it’s a CANNOT LOSE Game and remember….

Mike Riley is REALLY a nice guy…Yada, Yada, Yada!


4.  Mark Helfrich, Oregon vs. Washington – Hell, here we go again with the….

Mark Helfrich is a nice guy…Yada, Yada, Yada!

….thing again with Mark Helfrich and if anyone else is noticing a trend that…

Really Nice Guys are finding their asses on the Hot Seat

…..then you would not be alone but seriously now IF the Oregon Ducks lose to a Washington Huskies team that is still in a serious rebuild mode what kind of state must the Ducks football program actually be in right now?

A Total and Complete Disaster of a State is the answer to that question.

Mark Helfrich took over an Oregon Ducks football team from Chip Kelly that had…

Lost 7 Football Games in 4 Seasons

…..and in 2.5 seasons coaching the Ducks Mark Helfrich has already lost…

7 Football Games

…and the Ducks still have to play in 2015:

At Washington
At Arizona State
At Stanford
Oregon State

Damn….IF Oregon loses to Washington on Saturday the Ducks could EASILY lose….

5 MORE Games in 2015

….and if Oregon has a losing season in 2015…

Mark Helfrich is DONE in Eugene….PERIOD!


5.  Mike London, Virginia vs. Syracuse –A very good Virginia-alum friend of ours pointed out something to us recently….

Virginia-Alum Friend: “Take a look at Mike London’s record in ACC play compared to Al Groh (the head coach at UVA before Mike London).”

Mike London ACC Conference Record:

11 – 30 (.268)

Al Groh ACC Conference Record:

36 – 36 (.500)


Oh…below are Mike London and Al Groh’s overall records at Virginia:

Mike London Overall Record:

24 – 42 (.364)

Al Groh Overall Record:

59 – 54 (.522)

Double Damn!

Not that we believe any longer that the University of Virginia actually takes football seriously but for Damn sure at least to us here at Coaches Hot Seat…

Syracuse is a CANNOT LOSE Game for Mike London and Virginia!

Good Luck Mike….and Oh….

Mike London is a nice guy…Yada, Yada, Yada!

Bob Stoops

6.  Bob Stoops, Oklahoma vs. Kansas State – A good MAXIM to follow in college football is…

When a successful college football program starts losing more conference games that is the first sign of decay in that program

…and there is no getting around the set of FACTS that….

In Bob Stoops first 10 seasons at Oklahoma the Sooners averaged losing

1.3 Conference Games A Season

….and over the past 6 seasons at Oklahoma the Sooners have averaged losing…

2.5 Conference Games A Season

….which as everyone can see is an almost DOUBLING of Conference losses and why OU football has taken a step-back and hasn’t played for a National Title since the 2008 season.

With the Sooners now at 4 – 1 overall and 1 – 1 in Big 12 Conference play after the Totally Damn Inexcusable loss to a very AVERAGE Texas team Oklahoma plays at Kansas State in Week 7 in what is clearly a…


….because a loss in this spot would mean that yet AGAIN Bob Stoops and Oklahoma would be out of the National Title hunt and yet AGAIN out of the National Title hunt very early on in the season.

Our guess….Bob Stoops and Oklahoma will lose to Kansas State and finish something like…

8 – 4 or 9 – 3

…in 2015 and Bob Stoops will collect his $5 Million Plus Dollars again and…

NO Oklahoma Sooners fan will say ANYTHING

….because it’s clear to us that Oklahoma Sooners fans….like their head coach Bob Stoops rather enjoy being…

Average as Hell!

In our opinion of course!

Memo to Oklahoma Football Fans: The Very Worst Thing you can have as a head football coach is a head coach that doesn’t give a Damn and it’s our opinion here at Coaches Hot Seat that Bob Stoops…

Just Doesn’t Give A Damn

…whether OU wins another Big 12 or National Title again because Big Choke Bob Stoops is going to get paid a Helluva lot of money whether the Sooners win anything of significance again or not….right?



7.  Mike MacIntyre, Colorado vs. Arizona – Colorado head coach Mike MacIntyre like a lot of us that are getting older is going through a Helluva lot of tough things right now…

Colorado Coach Mike MacIntyre wants to come home happy, Mark Kiszla, Denver Post

…and we here at Coaches Hot Seat send our best to Mike and his family but then what Mike MacIntyre is going through right now is something that ALL Americans go through at one time or another in their lives and 70% plus of Americans are also struggling just to get the bills paid so college head coaches making Millions of Dollars should count themselves lucky especially when they realize how Billions of human beings around the world live in abject poverty that makes even the poorest Americans look like they hit the lottery!

Getting back to Mike MacIntyre and Colorado there is no getting around the FACT that in his third season at CU MacIntyre is sitting on a Pac-12 record of…

1 – 19

….and that is the MAIN reason why this Saturday’s home game against Arizona is a…


…because sooner or later the Buffs have to get over the hump under Mike MacIntyre and this game against Arizona in Boulder is a very winnable game!


8.  Darrell Hazell, Purdue vs. Wisconsin – Darrell Hazell is now in his THIRD season coaching the Purdue Boilermakers and has posted records of…

Overall:  5 – 25

Big Ten:  1 – 17

…..and like Mike MacIntyre sooner or later Darrell Hazell has to start winning some Big Ten Conference games and this Saturday’s game is at Wisconsin and not that this will be an easy game for the Boilermakers to win but for Damn sure it is a…



9.  Dana Holgorsen, West Virginia vs. Baylor – Crazy Boy Dana Holgorsen must be thinking about right now something like…

He Cannot Get A Break

….but then Dana Holgorsen is making Millions of Dollars a year and he has a Big 12 Conference record of…

16 – 20

… FOUR seasons in Big 12 play which is a GREAT gig if you can get it and things don’t get any easier for Crazy Boy with the Mountaineers now at 0 – 2 in conference play and having to play at Baylor!

Got 0 – 3 in Big 12 play Crazy Boy?

You are about to Crazy Boy!

Oh…West Virginia plays at TCU on Thursday October 29!


10.  Frank Beamer, Virginia Tech vs. Miami – This past summer while making several media appearances for the upcoming college football season Frank Beamer said on several occasions things like…

“Beamer said he’s in good health now and doesn’t plan to retire anytime soon.”

….which is great but then why would Frank Beamer believe it will be his decision when he retires unless of course he is denying to himself the REALITY that over the last FOUR seasons his Virginia Tech football team has posted records of…

Overall:  24 – 19

ACC:  12 – 12

…and if that kind of football will keep you employed at Virginia Tech then Congratulations are in order to the folks in Blacksburg because you even make the fans of Oklahoma Football look tough because the above records are…

Mediocre at Best

….and compared to what the Hokies were doing under Beamer before the 2012 season…

A Complete Embarrassment at Worst!

YES….Saturday’s game at Miami is a CANNOT LOSE Game for Frank Beamer and the Hokies but then it’s a CANNOT LOSE Game for Al Golden and the Hurricanes so clearly…

Something Has To Give!
