“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!

MarkRicht818181

1.  Mark Richt, Georgia vs. Auburn – To understand the very MEDIOCRE state of Georgia football in Mark Richt’s 15 th season in Athens consider that the Bulldogs were out of the SEC East race before the month of October was over and Richt now needs to win his last three games just to get to…

9 Wins

…in 2015 in a season when Anyone and Everyone was predicting that Georgia would be the SEC East Champs and playing someone from the SEC West in Atlanta in early December for the SEC Title!

Since Georgia last won the SEC Title under Mark Richt in 2005 the Bulldogs have averaged…

Almost 4 LOSSES a season…3.89 LOSSES per season to be exact

…..and over the last 7 seasons Nick Saban has lost an average of….

1.43 LOSSES per season

NickSaban818181

….and in college football the difference between…

3.89 LOSSES per season

AND

1.43 LOSSES per season

…..is the difference between SEC Championships and National Titles and over the past 10 college football seasons Mark Richt will have…

NEITHER of the above!

Our opinion….Mark Richt would love to remain the head football coach at Georgia making $4 Million Dollars a year being Very Damn Mediocre…

Hell..who wouldn’t want that job?

….and more than likely if Richt wins out and posts a 9 – 3 record he will be back for 2016…BUT….if Georgia loses one more game to any of the teams below…

At Auburn
Georgia Southern
Georgia Tech

…the Mark Richt era at Georgia comes to an end in December and it will be up to the folks at Georgia to hire a coach that can take the Bulldogs to another level and take on the powers in the SEC and college football in a very direct way.

GusMalzahn11818

2.  Gus Malzahn, Auburn vs. Georgia –Even with the win over the Falling to Pieces Texas A&M Aggies which have serious “Prima Donna QB” problems in College Station Gus Malzahn and the Auburn Tigers are still sitting on records of…

5 – 4 overall

2 – 4 in SEC play

….with these games still left on the schedule:

Georgia
Idaho
Alabama

Hell…Auburn has to beat Georgia and Alabama just to get to…

.500 in SEC Play in 2015

….and Auburn was picked by many to be playing in the College Football Playoff this season!

Maybe Gus Malzahn won’t be fired if his football team loses to Georgia and Alabama to end the season with records of…

6 – 6 overall

2 – 6 in SEC play

….BUT Gus Malzahn will be sitting on the No. 1 Hot Seat in America until the 2016 college football season kicks-off if that does happen….COUNT ON IT!

MikeRiley1181818

3.  Mike Riley, Nebraska vs. Rutgers – For all the people crying in the media and elsewhere things like…

“Poor Mike Riley nor any coach can win BIG at Nebraska anymore”

….we here at Coaches Hot Seat took a hard look at the talent on Nebraska’s 2015 roster and it’s our opinion that….

Only Ohio State has MORE talent than Nebraska on its roster in the Big Ten in 2015

….and looking at the Huskers 2015 schedule….

Nebraska has MORE talent than EVERY team on its schedule

….and if you don’t believe that the Huskers are only….

23 Points

…from being 10 – 0 right now which is the amount of points they lost by in their 6 losses in 2015 or…

3.83 points per loss!

BoPelni88811

The 2015 Nebraska football team IF Bo Pelini was still the head coach would in our opinion right now be…

9 – 1 at worst and 10 – 0 at best

….because the TRUTH is there is…

Plenty of Damn Talent on this Nebraska roster

…and there will ALWAYS be plenty of talent on the Nebraska roster….unless Mike Riley does what he did at Oregon State where in our opinion…

Mike Riley did less and less work over the years

…and left behind a Complete Freaking Disaster in Corvallis where the Oregon State Beavers are now…

2 – 7 overall

0 – 6 in Pac-12 play

…and headed for a 2 – 10 season!

Getting back to Nebraska the Huskers travel to New Jersey this week to play a Rutgers team that Nebraska has FOUR to FIVE more talent than as evidenced by a barely motivated Ohio State team blasting Rutgers 49 – 7 earlier this year.

Nebraska should DESTROY Rutgers by 3 or more touchdowns….so we cannot but wonder what will happen because there’s a coach on the opposite sideline that needs this win BADLY as well!

KyleFlood821818

4.  Kyle Flood, Rutgers – In our opinion ANYTHING less than 6 wins and Kyle Flood is done at Rutgers and the Scarlett Knights are now 3 – 6 on the season and still have to play….

Nebraska
At Army
Maryland

Our recommendation to Rutgers HC Kyle Flood:  BEAT Nebraska on Saturday son!

CharlieStrong288118

5.  Charlie Strong, Texas vs. West Virginia – Whatever is going on with Charlie Strong at Texas and if Charlie is interested in some other head coaching jobs that are now open or might open up in the next month or so we are still talking about TEXAS here and in his SECOND season coaching the Longhorns Charlie Strong is sitting on records of…

4 – 5 overall

3 – 3 in the Big 12 play

…..and the Horns still have to play games against…

At West Virginia
Texas Tech
At Baylor

Damn…that’s a pretty tough finishing stretch for the Longhorns and if things don’t go just right TEXAS could be looking at a record of…

4 – 8

….in 2015 and TEXAS has not lost 8 games in the regular season since…

1956 or almost 60 years ago!

YES…if TEXAS loses 8 games in 2015 there is a Very Damn Good chance Charlie Strong is fired in early December by the folks in Austin so keep that in the back of your head Charlie….and remember you were warned by the good folks at Coaches Hot Seat!

DanaHolgorsen17171

6.  Dana Holgorsen, West Virginia vs. Texas – Crazy Boy Dana Holgorsen REALLY needs to take his Mountaineers to a bowl game this season and with WVU sitting on records of…

4 – 4 overall

1 – 4 in Big 12 play

….with these games still on the schedule…

Texas
At Kansas
Iowa State
At Kansas State

…IF Dana Holgorsen can’t get TWO more wins out of the above FOUR games Crazy Boy should be fired shortly after the Kansas State game on December 5 preferably at the airport in Manhattan, Kansas!

Memo to Crazy Boy Dana Holgorsen:  Beat TEXAS son….Beat TEXAS!

KliffKingsbury271717

7.  Kliff Kingsbury, Texas Tech vs. Kansas State – When looking at Kliff Kingsbury’s win/loss records at Texas Tech…

Overall:  17 – 18

Big 12:  8 – 17

…the most STUNNING number is the second one because an 8 – 17 record in Big 12 Conference play is NOT a good look and thus why the….

5 – 5 overall

….Red Raiders REALLY need to get to 6 wins in 2015 and with these games left to play….

Kansas State
At Texas

…..things could get really UGLY in Lubbock for Kingsbury if Texas Tech loses its last two games….Very Damn Ugly because that would leave Kingsbury’s records in THREE years on the job at….

Overall:  17 – 20

Big 12:  8 – 19

….and those are FIRING numbers son….those are FIRING numbers!

ToddGraham81818

8.  Todd Graham, Arizona State vs. Washington – We have a working theory here at Coaches Hot Seat after four decades of playing and watching the Great Game of Football that….

A Head Football Coach that spends LOTS of time yelling at his players instead of Coaching-Them-Up, Motivating, and Leading his football team eventually loses his football team

….and that might be happening at Arizona State right now with Todd Graham who is a loss to Washington on Saturday to falling into the Burning Ring of Fire Hot Seat and putting his future as the head coach at ASU in REAL jeopardy!

Sitting with records of…

4 – 5 overall

2 – 4 in Pac-12 play

…makes the below last THREE game CRITICAL to Todd Graham’s future and Hot Seat status:

Washington
Arizona
At California

We would recommend that Todd Graham NOT lose these last three games to finish at…

4 – 8

…on the season….REALLY recommend to Todd Graham that he not do that!

PaulRhoads83883 (1)

9.  Paul Rhoads, Iowa State vs. Oklahoma State – YES..it really was only four years ago in 2011 that Iowa State beat No. 2 ranked Oklahoma State to knock the Cowboys out a shot to play in the Bogus BCS Title Game against LSU and four years later where is the Iowa State football program at now?

Since Iowa State beat Oklahoma State on Friday, November 18, 2011 the Cyclones under head coach Paul Rhoads have posted records of…

Overall:  14 – 34

Big 12:  7 – 27

….and thus you now know why Paul Rhoads is sitting on one of the Hottest Seats in college football.

Can the…

3 – 6 overall

2 – 4 in Big 12 play

…Cyclones get even ONE win against the teams left on their schedule?

Oklahoma State
At Kansas State
At West Virginia

Who the Hell knows because to us TEXAS looks like a Below Average football team so beating TEXAS is No Big Whoop….so maybe Iowa State can beat Kansas State and West Virginia…BUT…we give the Cyclones NO chance to beat Oklahoma State in this spot!

KevinWilson77-393x530

10.  Kevin Wilson, Indiana vs. Michigan – Now in his FIFTH season as the head coach at Indiana Kevin Wilson has…

No .500 or better records or bowl game trips

….and thus why it’s so important for the…

4 – 5 overall

0 – 5 in Big Ten play

….Hoosiers to get to 6 wins in 2015 and with these games remaining….

Michigan
At Maryland
At Purdue

….beating Michigan this Saturday would be HUGE and you know what….Indiana CAN beat Michigan on Saturday in our opinion!

MarkStoops919191

11.  Mark Stoops, Kentucky vs. Vanderbilt – There are LOTS of Fundamental Rules to life but ONE of the Fundamental Rules of life is…

If you are going to talk BIG you better Damn deliver BIG

….and Mark Stoops has done a Helluva lot of talking since he got to Lexington THREE seasons ago and as of right now with these records on the board…

Overall:  11 – 22

SEC:  4 – 19

….that ain’t BIG Mark Stoops….not even Freaking Close to being BIG!

Here’s the problem for Mark Stoops…his Kentucky team has 4 wins on the board this season and still has to play….

At Vanderbilt
Charlotte
Louisville

….and Mark Stoops really needs 6 wins on the board when UK’s season ends on November 28 which leads to the undeniable FACT that….

Mark Stoops football team better Damn beat Vanderbilt on Saturday

….just saying….in our humble opinion of course!

BretBielema188181

12.  Bret Bielema, Arkansas vs. LSU – Almost 30 years ago academic Allan Bloom wrote the book…

The Closing of the American Mind

ClosingofMind

….that postulated that American college students both arriving on campus and even after leaving with their degree were…

Complete Freaking Idiots

….as it pertained to World History, US History, Religious History, and pretty much about EVERYTHING else and almost 30 years later we have LOTS of crybabies on college campuses …

Crying Like Babies

….every time someone offends their Precious Asses which brings us to Arkansas football where it’s clear to us that…

The Closing of the Arkansas Football Fan’s Mind

….is on full display now in Razorback-land with Hog fans GOING WILD because…..

Arkansas in 2015 has records on the board of….

5 – 4 overall

3 – 2 in SEC play

….and still has to play games against…

At LSU
Mississippi State
Missouri

Hell….will Arkansas fans storm the field on Friday November 27 after they beat Missouri and get bowl eligible?

More than likely…YES…and thus …

The Closing of the Arkansas Football Fan’s Mind

….is terrible for the future of Arkansas Football but is a GREAT thing for Bret Bielema because where the Hell else can a Fat Pig Farmer make $4 Million Dollars a year being…

Totally Damn Average?

No Damn where is in the answer to that question!

LesMiles811818

13.  Les Miles, LSU vs. Arkansas – No one here at Coaches Hot Seat was surprised that Alabama DESTROYED LSU last Saturday night since the Tigers are led by….

Les “All Hat and No Damn Cattle” Miles

AllHatNoCattle

….which is Les Miles very apt nickname here at Coaches Hot Seat because after all…

Has ANY college football coach EVER done so Damn little with so Damn much as Les Miles in the history of college football in America as Les “All Hat and No Damn Cattle” Miles?

NO is the obvious answer to that question and after getting DESTROYED by Alabama while running an offensive gameplan that went out of Pee-Wee football a decade-plus ago….

Memo to Les Miles:  The Alabama defensive coaches were LAUGHING at your Idiotic offense son in the run-up to the LSU – Alabama game…at least that is what a buddy of ours in Tuscaloosa told us which is his and now our opinion of course!

…..the Tigers get to host Arkansas and the Fat Pig Farmer who has a fan base that are THRILLED the Hogs have 5 wins on the board so will LSU show-up for this game or will Les Miles nickname at Coaches Hot Seat…

Les “All Hat and No Damn Cattle” Miles

….be confirmed yet AGAIN?

The latter and for those slow on the uptake “the latter” means…

Les “All Hat and No Damn Cattle” Miles

….will do lots of Damn talking AGAIN and his football team will do LOTS of No Damn Playing AGAIN!

Bob Stoops

14.  Bob Stoops, Oklahoma vs. Baylor – Let the following sink in for minute or two….

The Baylor Bears…the Freaking Baylor Bears are going for their FOURTH win over the Mighty Oklahoma Sooners and Bob Stops in FIVE seasons on Saturday

…..and you were wondering why Bob Stoops was on the Hot Seat earlier this season and was a late game collapse by Butch Jones and the Tennessee Vols from having his ass launched towards the Sun you now know why and thus it’s time for Bob Stoops and his Sooners to face FACTS:

There’s a new Sheriff in town and his names are…

Art Briles and the Baylor Bears

….and we fully expect Baylor to DESTROY Oklahoma on Saturday and for the room where the defensive coordinator of the Sooners sits during this game to not look so Damn hot when the game is over!

Yes…Oklahoma is 8 – 1 right now…BUT…OU still has to play games against…

At Baylor
TCU
At Oklahoma State

….and if the Past is the Prologue then we fully expect for..

OU to get whipped by Baylor

TCU to beat OU

Oklahoma State to whip the OU

…and for Bob Stoops’ Precious Ass to be on the Hot Seat in late November after posting a record of…

8 – 4 in 2015!

Hey…Bob Stoops Precious Ass back on the Hot Seat…the Past is the Prologue…and the Future also it seems in Oklahoma!

RichRodriguez8881

15.  Rich Rodriguez, Arizona vs. Utah – If Rich Rodriguez’s agent is talking to teams with head coaching opens right now the last Damn thing RichRod wants to do is to ride out of Tucson with a losing record in his last season with the Wildcats which is why it’s so Damn important for 5 – 5 Arizona to win at least ONE of this last TWO games against…

Utah
At Arizona State

…..and we have a feeling that Arizona will rise up and beat Utah on Saturday and set-up a great game against ASU in Tempe on November 21 with possibly Rich Rodriguez flying from the Phoenix airport right after the game to somewhere in the Eastern United States to be introduced as the next head coach at….

?

MikeLondon271717

16.  Mike London, Virginia vs. Louisville – Bottom-Line: Mike London needs his Virginia football team to win…

6 Games in 2015

…and right now the Cavs are 3 – 6 and need to win their last THREE games to get to 6 wins in 2015 and those games are against:

At Louisville
Duke
At Virginia Tech

One game at time Mike London…one game at a time son!

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day – Friday, November 13, 2015 – Ulysses S. Grant

 

UlyssyesSGrant83883

“Although a soldier by profession, I have never felt any sort of fondness for war, and I have never advocated it, except as a means of peace.”

And

“I appreciate the fact, and am proud of it, that the attentions I am receiving are intended more for our country than for me personally.”

And

“If you see the President, tell him from me that whatever happens there will be no turning back.”

And

“In every battle there comes a time when both sides consider themselves beaten, then he who continues the attack wins.”

And

“Labor disgraces no man; unfortunately, you occasionally find men who disgrace labor.”

And

“Nations, like individuals, are punished for their transgressions.”

And

“The art of war is simple enough. Find out where your enemy is. Get at him as soon as you can. Strike him as hard as you can, and keep moving on.”

And

“The friend in my adversity I shall always cherish most. I can better trust those who helped to relieve the gloom of my dark hours than those who are so ready to enjoy with me the sunshine of my prosperity.”

And

“Every human being, of whatever origin, of whatever station, deserves respect. We must each respect others even as we respect ourselves.”

And

“The right of revolution is an inherent one. When people are oppressed by their government, it is a natural right they enjoy to relieve themselves of oppression, if they are strong enough, whether by withdrawal from it, or by overthrowing it and substituting a government more acceptable.”

And

“…but for a soldier his duty is plain. He is to obey the orders of all those placed over him and whip the enemy wherever he meets him.”

And

“Leave the matter of religion to the family altar, the church, and the private school, supported entirely by private contributions. Keep the church and state forever separate.”

And

“There never was a time when, in my opinion, some way could not be found to prevent the drawing of the sword.”

And

“Everyone has his superstitions. One of mine has always been when I started to go anywhere, or to do anything, never to turn back or to stop until the thing intended was accomplished.”

And

“I never held a council of war in my life. I heard what men had to say – the stream of talk at headquarters – but I made up my own mind, and from my written orders my staff got their first knowledge of what was to be done. No living man knew of plans”

And

“I have acted in every instance from a conscientious desire to do what was right, constitutional, within the law, and for the very best interests of the whole people. Failures have been errors of judgment, not of intent.”

And

“The one thing I never want to see again is a military parade. When I resigned from the army and went to a farm I was happy. When the rebellion came, I returned to the service because it was a duty. I had no thought of rank; all I did was try and make”

And

“No terms except an unconditional and immediate surrender can be accepted. I propose to move immediately upon your works.”
To General S.B. Buckner, Fort Donelson, February 16, 1862

And

“God gave us Lincoln and Liberty, let us fight for both.”
A toast made by Grant before his operations in the Vicksburg Campaign, February 22, 1863

And

“I propose to fight it out on this line, if it takes all summer.”
Dispatch to Washington, during the Battle of Spotsylvania Court House. May 11, 1864

And

“I propose to receive the surrender of the Army of N. Va. on the following terms, to wit: Rolls of all the officers and men to be made in duplicate. One copy to be given to an officer designated by me, the other to be retained by such officer or officers as you may designate. The officers to give their individual paroles not to take up arms against the Government of the United States until properly exchanged, and each company or regimental commander sign a like parole for the men of their commands. The arms, artillery and public property to be parked and stacked, and turned over to the officer appointed by me to receive them. This will not embrace the side-arms of the officers, nor their private horses or baggage. This done, each officer and man will be allowed to return to their homes, not to be disturbed by United States authority so long as they observe their paroles and the laws in force where they may reside.”
Terms of surrender, given to General Robert E. Lee after the Battle of Appomattox Courthouse, April 9, 1865

And

“Though I have been trained as a soldier, and participated in many battles, there never was a time when, in my opinion, some way could not be found to prevent the drawing of the sword. I look forward to an epoch when a court, recognized by all nations, will settle international differences, instead of keeping large standing armies as they do in Europe.”

And

“The will of the people is the best law.”

And

“Oh, I am heartily tired of hearing about what Lee is going to do. Some of you always seem to think he is suddenly going to turn a double somersault, and land in our rear and on both of our flanks at the same time. Go back to your command, and try to think what we are going to do ourselves, instead of what Lee is going to do.”

And

I had known General Lee in the old army, and had served with him in the Mexican War; but did not suppose, owing to the difference in our age and rank, that he would remember me, while I would more naturally remember him distinctly, because he was the chief of staff of General Scott in the Mexican War.

When I had left camp that morning I had not expected so soon the result that was then taking place, and consequently was in rough garb. I was without a sword, as I usually was when on horseback on the field, and wore a soldier’s blouse for a coat, with the shoulder straps of my rank to indicate to the army who I was. When I went into the house I found General Lee. We greeted each other, and after shaking hands took our seats. I had my staff with me, a good portion of whom were in the room during the whole of the interview.

What General Lee’s feelings were I do not know. As he was a man of much dignity, with an impassible face, it was impossible to say whether he felt inwardly glad that the end had finally come, or felt sad over the result, and was too manly to show it. Whatever his feelings, they were entirely concealed from my observation; but my own feelings, which had been quite jubilant on the receipt of his letter, were sad and depressed. I felt like anything rather than rejoicing at the downfall of a foe who had fought so long and valiantly, and had suffered so much for a cause, though that cause was, I believe, one of the worst for which a people ever fought, and one for which there was the least excuse. I do not question, however, the sincerity of the great mass of those who were opposed to us.

Our conversation grew so pleasant that I almost forgot the object of our meeting. After the conversation had run on in this style for some time, General Lee called my attention to the object of our meeting, and said that he had asked for this interview for the purpose of getting from me the terms I proposed to give his army. I said that I meant merely that his army should lay down their arms, not to take them up again during the continuance of the war unless duly and properly exchanged. He said that he had so understood my letter. Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant, 1885

And

“The cause of the great War of the Rebellion against the United Status will have to be attributed to slavery. For some years before the war began it was a trite saying among some politicians that “A state half slave and half free cannot exist.” All must become slave or all free, or the state will go down. I took no part myself in any such view of the case at the time, but since the war is over, reviewing the whole question, I have come to the conclusion that the saying is quite true.”

And

We must go back to the campaigns of Napoleon to find equally brillant results accomplished in the same space of time with such a small loss.
Francis Vinton Greene in The Mississippi (1882) on Grant’s role in the Vicksburg campaign

And

If Grant only does this thing right down there — I don’t care how, so long as he does it right — why, Grant is my man and I am his the rest of the war!
Abraham Lincoln on Grant’s Vicksburg campaign, July 5, 1863

And

I wish some of you would tell me the brand of whiskey that Grant drinks. I would like to send a barrel of it to my other generals.
Statement attributed to Abraham Lincoln in response to complaints about Grant’s drinking habits, November 1863

And

“He (Grant) habitually wears an expression as if he had determined to drive his head through a brick wall, and was about to do it.”
Col. Theodore Lyman. in Meade’s headquarters, 1863-1865
