Post Week 6 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

KevinWilson77-393x530

21.  Kevin Wilson, Indiana – After a nice 4 – 0 start to the season Indiana head coach Kevin Wilson is back on the Hot Seat after back-to-back losses to Ohio State and Penn State and the Hoosiers needs to get things rolling again this Saturday in a game at home against Rutgers.

Now in his FIFTH season as the head coach at Indiana Kevin Wilson has…

ZERO .500 or better seasons

ZERO postseason bowl games

….and in our opinion a .500 or better season is a MUST if Kevin Wilson wants to return to coach the Hoosiers in 2016.

Now at 4 – 2 on the season the Hoosiers have left to play…..

Rutgers
At Michigan State
Iowa
Michigan
At Maryland
At Purdue

….and we see No Damn Reason at all why Kevin Wilson and Indiana don’t win at least 2 of their last 6 games!

Coach ‘Em Up Kevin!

DanaHolgorsen17171

22.  Dana Holgorsen, West Virginia – West Virginia opened the season with THREE wins in out-of-conference play against teams that the Mountaineers should have beaten pretty easily BUT now that Big 12 Conference play has started WVU has lost two straight games to Oklahoma and Oklahoma State and the Hot Seat is heating up under Dana Holgorsen who is now sitting on a Big 12 Conference record over the past FOUR seasons of….

16 – 20

….and that is something Crazy Boy Holgorsen MUST fix and quick starting with this Saturday’s game at Baylor…..Ooops….guess that will a Big 12 Conference record of…

16 – 21

….after this Saturday’s game at Baylor!

Oh….West Virginia plays at TCU in Week 8!

Damn…will West Virginia be….

3 – 4

…when Texas Tech comes to Morgantown on November 7.

Sure the Hell looks like it so Crazy Boy Holgorsen better start pulling off some Crazy Shit soon or couch burning will be the least of his worries in the hills of beautiful West Virginia!

TimDerutyer2381818

23.  Tim DeRuyter, Fresno State – After an opening season win over Abilene Christian Tim DeRuyter’s Fresno State Bulldogs have lost FIVE straight games including a 56 – 14 drubbing at the hands of Utah State last Saturday and now the season could really go off the rails for the Bulldogs unless Tim DeRuyter can get things turned-around in a Friday night game at home against UNLV! With a game at Air Force a week from Saturday very simply Fresno State CANNOT LOSE to UNLV and we will be fascinated to see how the Bulldogs come out and play against the Rebels focusing on if Tim DeRuyter can find a way to motivate his football team at this very challenging time!

Play like Hell Bulldogs….but then is there any other way to play football?

24.  Curtis Johnson, Tulane – Now sitting on a record of 2 – 3 after five games into the 2015 season the biggest thing working against Curtis Johnson are his win/loss records now in his FOURTH season on the job at Tulane which stand at…

Overall:  14 – 28

CUSA: 1 0 – 16

…especially since a lot of folks including us here at Coaches Hot Seat believed that 2015 would be the year that Johnson would get things rolling in New Orleans.

Here is what Tulane has left on their schedule this season:

Houston
At Navy
At Memphis
UConn
At Army
At SMU
Tulsa

Damn….if Curtis Johnson can get Tulane to SIX wins in 2015 that will be a Helluva coaching job so…

Coach ‘Em Up Curtis!

ToddMonken272772

25.  Todd Monken, Southern Miss – Todd Monken is now in his THIRD season as the head coach at Southern Miss and he has win/loss records on the board of…

Overall:  7 – 23

CUSA:  3 – 15

….and although the Golden Eagles are playing some noticeably better football in 2015 a Week 6 loss to Marshall has left USM at 3 – 3 on the season and in need of some more wins and….quick!

Here is what Southern Miss has left on their schedule…

Texas San Antonio
At Charlotte
UTEP
At Rice
Old Dominion
At La. Tech

…and we see No Damn Reason at all why USM doesn’t win at least 3 of their last 6 games to get to .500 on the season and to a postseason bowl game starting with a win over Texas San Antonio on Saturday!

RonTurner281818

26.  Ron Turner, Florida International – After a nice win over UTEP by the score of 52 – 12 FIU head coach Ron Turner has a chance to get off the Hot Seat with at Middle Tennessee on Saturday but that won’t be an easy thing to do because MTSU almost beat Vanderbilt in Murfreesboro a couple of weeks back.

With FIU now at 3 – 3 on the season can Ron Turner get the Golden Panthers get to 6 wins in 2015 getting Turner’s ass of the Hot Seat in the process? Let’s go the rest of FIU’s remaining schedule to see:

At Middle Tennessee
Old Dominion
At Florida Atlantic
Charlotte
At Marshall
Western Kentucky

6 wins for FIU in 2015? Rather doubt that should be able to beat its’ 4 win total from last season or Ron Turner = Hot Seat!

WillieTaggart81818

27.  Willie Taggart, South Florida – Willie Taggart and the South Florida Bulls got a GREAT win in Week 6 over Syracuse and now USF needs to keep things rolling in Week 7 with a game at UConn and Hell if you can beat Syracuse you can beat UConn….right? RIGHT!

Willie Taggart REALLY needs to get South Florida to 6-plus wins in 2015 and with the Bulls now at 2 – 3 and with these games left to play…

At UConn
SMU
At Navy
At East Carolina
Temple
Cincinnati
At UCF

….USF has no room to lose to UConn this Saturday so Coach Up Those Bulls Willie and keep the bus rolling!

28.  Paul Haynes, Kent State – Kent State got destroyed by Toledo on Saturday by a score of 38 – 7 which landed the Golden Flashes head coach Paul Haynes back on the Hot Seat and that seat will only get Hotter if Kent State loses a CANNOT LOSE game at UMass this coming Saturday.

In his third season as the head coach at Kent State Paul Haynes has posted win/loss records of…

Overall:  8 – 21

MAC:  5 – 12

….and sooner or later…make that SOONER….Paul Haynes will have to start winning some football games starting with a win against UMass on Saturday so how about it Paul? Can we get a win for your Kent State team on Saturday son? Let’s sure the Hell hope so for Paul Haynes’ rear-end’s sake!

FAUStadium

29.  Charlie Partridge, Florida Atlantic – Charlie Partridge is now in his second season as the head coach at FAU and his win/loss records now stand at…

Overall:  4 – 13

CUSA:  3 – 7

…and it’s time for Charlie to start WINNING some football games! After a close loss at home to Rice by one point Partridge and FAU has a tough challenge in their next game at home against…

Marshall!

Come on Charlie….the time for WINNING is NOW!

CUFootballField

30.  Mike MacIntyre, Colorado – Mike MacIntyre is in his THIRD season as the head coach at Colorado and is in the midst of trying to rebuild a CU football program that was at the lowest of the low when he took over BUT by the THIRD season on the job TIME is no longer an excuse that can be proffered for why a team is not winning football games and with the Buffs now at…

3 – 3

….on the 2015 season the season is at a crossroads with the Arizona Wildcats coming to Boulder for a CRITICAL game that Mike MacIntyre MUST win if he is going to get things turned around at Colorado.

With these games remaining in 2015 for Colorado….

Arizona
At Oregon State
At UCLA
Stanford
USC
At Washington State
At Utah

….there is NO margin for error if the Buffs are going to win 6 games and with that in mind we can only say…

Play Hard Buffs….Play Very Damn Hard!

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day – Wednesday, October 14, 2015 – William Shakespeare

 

WilliamShakespeare1288118

“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages.”

And

“Be not afraid of greatness: some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.”

And

“Cowards die many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste of death but once.”

And

“Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.”

And

“Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more; it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”

And

“Listen to many, speak to a few.”

And

“Pleasure and action make the hours seem short.”

And

“Talking isn’t doing. It is a kind of good deed to say well; and yet words are not deeds.”

And

“There is a tide in the affairs of men, Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat. And we must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures.”

And

“Things done well and with a care, exempt themselves from fear.”

And

“To be, or not to be: that is the question.”

And

“To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.”

And

“We know what we are, but know not what we may be.”

And

“To be, or not to be, — that is the question: —
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them? — To die, to sleep, —
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache, and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to, — ’tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d. To die, to sleep; —
To sleep, perchance to dream: — ay, there’s the rub;
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause: there’s the respect
That makes calamity of so long life;
For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
The oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s contumely,
The pangs of despis’d love, the law’s delay,
The insolence of office, and the spurns
That patient merit of the unworthy takes,
When he himself might his quietus make
With a bare bodkin? who would these fardels bear,
To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
But that the dread of something after death, —
The undiscover’d country, from whose bourn
No traveller returns, — puzzles the will,
And makes us rather bear those ills we have
Than fly to others that we know naught of?
Thus conscience does make cowards of us all;
And thus the native hue of resolution
Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thought;
And enterprises of great pith and moment,
With this regard, their currents turn awry,
And lose the name of action.”
Hamlet, Act III, Scene 1

And

“She should have died hereafter;
There would have been time for such a word.
Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.”
Macbeth, Act V, Scene 5

And

“There is a tide in the affairs of men
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
On such a full sea are we now afloat;
And we must take the current when it serves,
Or lose our ventures.”
Julius Caesar, Brutus, Act IV, Scene 3

And

“My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite.”
Romeo and Juliet

And

“When he shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun.”
Romeo and Juliet

And

“Did my heart love till now? forswear it, sight! For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night.”
Romeo and Juliet

And

“Don’t waste your love on somebody, who doesn’t value it.”
Romeo and Juliet

And

“There’s an old saying that applies to me: you can’t lose a game if you don’t play the game. (Act 1, scene 4)”
Romeo and Juliet

And

“True, I talk of dreams,
Which are the children of an idle brain,
Begot of nothing but vain fantasy,
Which is as thin of substance as the air,
And more inconstant than the wind, who woos
Even now the frozen bosom of the north,
And, being anger’d, puffs away from thence,
Turning his side to the dew-dropping south.”
Romeo and Juliet
