“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!
There are a number of College Football Head Coaches facing CANNOT LOSE Games during Championship Week that would be DEVASTATED by a loss this weekend including…
Charlie Strong at Texas who REALLY needs what is an Incredibly Unlikely win over Baylor
Trent Miles at Georgia State who DESPERATELY needs to get Georgia State to 6 wins and a bowl game
Dennis Franchione at Texas State who is heading for the Hot Seat with another loss and 3 – 9 season
Doug Martin at New Mexico State who will try to avoid a 3 – 9 season himself
Nick Saban at Alabama who with a loss to Florida would have created one of the BIGGEST upsets in modern college football history
Bill Snyder at Kansas State who REALLY needs 6 wins to get his team to a bowl game even though in the Age of the Candy Ass the Wildcats might get to a bowl game with a 5 – 7 record
Mark Hudspeth at La. Lafayette whose football team has strangely cratered in 2015 and with a loss on Saturday would fall to 4 – 8 and find himself on the Hot Seat in the process
Joey Jones at South Alabama who NEEDS a win to get to 6 wins on the season and a bowl game for his football team
Dabo Swinney of Clemson who with a loss in this spot as the No. 1 team in the country would give up an EPIC chance to get the Tigers a shot for the National Title
…..but there is really only ONE game we here at Coaches Hot Seat care about and that is the…
Pac-12 Championship Game
David Shaw, Stanford Head Coach, is the ONE Coach Facing a CANNOT LOSE Game on this Championship Weekend
If one takes a look at the performance of Stanford Football since the end of World War II in the 1940s which is the ONLY time worth looking at when comparing today’s teams and head coaches to the past since before World War II is an all-together other historical time from today one finds:
Since 1946 or over 65 College Football Seasons between 1946 – 2011 Stanford Football WON….
FIVE Pac-12 Championships
….in the years 1951, 1970, 1971, 1992, 1999…and on Saturday against the USC Trojans in the Pac-12 Championship Game the Stanford Cardinal will play for its…
THIRD Pac-12 Championship
…in the last FOUR seasons!
Maybe Stanford Football could get into the College Football Playoff with a WIN over USC if Clemson or Alabama lost on Saturday BUT we here at Coaches Hot Seat care little about that now because the First Goal of EVERY Stanford Athletics team is to win the…
…..and then focus on a potential National Championship and thus we hope that David Shaw and his football team are focused like Hell on a very talented USC team that is playing very well right now and will present a GREAT challenge to the Cardinal but then…
Taking on GREAT Challenges is what makes Life Worth Living
….and thus in this CANNOT LOSE Pac-12 Championship we can only say to the Cardinal:
If we are going to lower ourselves to attend a football game at the 49ers Stadium built in the WRONG DAMN PLACE in Santa Clara instead of San Francisco by that Trust Fund Boy and First-Class Moron Jed York (“Owner” of the 49ers) then for Damn sure…
Play Like Hell. Play Like Champions. Go Win the Pac-12 Championship!
Let’s bring this trophy back to The Farm…The Home of Champions….AGAIN!
