Post Week 3 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings – Lots of Coaches and Athletic Directors Now On Scorching Hot Seats! – Give These Hot Seat Coaches and ADs Hell Johnny Cash!


Well that was another Helluva week of college football in Week 3 of the 2017 College Football Season and one can only wonder what the coming weeks have in store for everyone….but one thing for sure….head coaches that thought they were safe in their jobs entering the this season are now in serious jeopardy of being out a job come December and not in the previous 10 seasons of Coaches Hot Seat covering college football have we seen so many Athletic Directors who are now on the verge of getting their asses run out of their respective college towns!

Please Mr. Cash let’s give these coaches and ADs a reminder of what the Hot Seat feels like!

Thank You Johnny and away we go to Week 4 of the college football season!

Post Week 3 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

1.  Todd Graham, Arizona State – After the loss to Texas Tech on Saturday the reality is that in Todd Graham’s last 28 games coaching the Arizona State Sun Devils his team has a posted a record of….

12 – 16

….and there is not a chance in Hell Todd Graham or any coach at Arizona State can survive long with that kind of record on the board especially when one considers that in the last two seasons ASU posted a record of…

6 – 12

…in Pac-12 Conference play which is also a mark that no coach can post and survive in Tempe at for long.

With a 1 – 2 record in 2017 the Sun Devils host Oregon and then play a brutal schedule the rest of the season and if you see 5 more wins out of the below games please let us know what those 5 wins are would you?

At Stanford
At Utah
At Oregon State

OK….OK…from what we have seen of the Sun Devils in 2017 they might be able to win…


…of their last 9 games if they are lucky for a total of 4 wins on the season and from what we have been told anything less than…


…wins which includes a win over Arizona and the Sun Devils will be looking for a new head coach by Thanksgiving!

2.  Mike Riley, Nebraska – There are just some people you run into in life that are in very BIG jobs that in reality just…

Don’t Have A Freaking Clue

….what they are doing having faked their entire lives to climb up the corporate ladder or more to the point the Athletic Director ladder in this case because in our opinion Nebraska Athletic Director Shawn Eichorst…

Doesn’t Have A Damn Clue

…what he is doing because if he did he would have hired an up-and-coming young head coach instead of the 60+ year old Mike Riley who was on the Hot Seat at Oregon State and evidently was hired by Eichorst because he was a “nice guy” because we cannot think one other Damn reason why Riley would have been hired in that spot to coach the Cornhuskers….no not one Damn reason!

Now after the humiliating loss to Northern Illinois at home on Saturday Mike Riley and the Nebraska AD are in a Helluva post because after making a few calls on Sunday to our Nebraska-alum friends in the Omaha area they are expecting 10+ wins by the Cornhuskers in 2017 and are not so much dismayed by the Nebraska loss to Northern Illinois as thinking that may in the end be a good thing because it might lead to as one of them told us….

“Eichorst’s rear-end getting fired and a new AD who will hire a football coach this time around that is both a good guy and someone that can win football games at Nebraska!”

Oh…you get the feeling too that Shawn Eichorst is about to get his ass run right out of Lincoln if the Nebraska football team loses just a couple more games?

Yep…you have the same feeling we got from our good friends in Omaha and looking at the rest of Nebraska’s schedule….

At Illinois
Ohio State
At Purdue
At Minnesota
At Penn State

….we see at least…4…maybe 5…more losses on Nebraska’s schedule the way the Cornhuskers are playing right now and we are now telling anyone that will listen if Mike Riley loses 3 more games at the MOST both Mike Riley and Shawn Eichorst will not be employed by the University of Nebraska by the time Christmas rolls around.

Oh…just for the running record….Mike Riley has now coached 29 games at Nebraska and his win/loss record is…

16 – 13  (.552)

….and below are the records after 29 games of the Nebraska head coaches after Tom Osborne:

Frank Solich:  24 – 5  (.828)

Bill Callahan:  18 – 11  (.621)

Bo Pelini:  21 – 8  (.724)

As anyone can clearly see Mike Riley is 4 th in winning percentage…

Frank Solich:  .829
Bo Pelini:  .724
Bill Callahan:  .621
Mike Riley:  .552

….in the head coaches following the Great Tom Osborne at Nebraska and Riley knows that if he continues along the current path his tenure in Lincoln will not be long.

Reality is now after that loss to NIU if Nebraska loses to Rutgers at home or Illinois on the road Mike Riley and Shawn Eichorst will be fired shortly after that loss….and in our opinion should be fired….because not only is there No Damn Excuse for a head coach at Nebraska losing to Northern Illinois at home in his 29 th game at the school there is No Damn Excuse for Nebraska Football to do anything but crush both the Very Damn Pitiful football teams of Rutgers and Illinois!

3.  Mark Whipple, UMass – Another week another loss for Mark Whipple and his UMass football team….this time to Temple…and Whipple’s record at UMass since he returned to the school in 2014 stands at…

8 – 32

…and with these games left to play in 2017 we rather doubt the Minutemen will win a Damn game this season!

At Tennessee
Georgia Southern
Appalachian State
At Mississippi State

Hmmmm….wonder if Mark Whipple finished the 2017 season with a collective record since 2014 of….

8 – 41

…if that would be enough to get Whipple’s ass fired at UMass?

Can you say no one cares or gives a Damn if Whipple gets fired or not which says everything about UMass football right now?

Yep…we can say that for Damn sure!

4.  Kevin Sumlin, Texas A&M – With the win over Louisiana on Saturday Kevin Sumlin did what he does very good which is beat teams that the Aggies should beat and now in Sumlin’s 6 th year on the job in College Station his records stand at:

Overall:  46 – 22

SEC:  21 – 19

Against FBS Teams:  27 – 22

Against Group of 6 and FCS Teams:  20 – 0

As anyone can see Sumlin has padded his record with wins over Lots of Cupcakes and now it’s back to Real Boy Football on Saturday against Arkansas in Dallas in a game that neither head coach can afford to lose with the losing coach being launched on a one-way rocket ship to the Sun!

Now at 2 – 1 on the season looking at the rest of Aggies season….

Arkansas (Dallas)
South Carolina
At Florida
Mississippi State
New Mexico
At Ole Miss

….and we see at least 3 more losses not counting a loss to Arkansas on Saturday and there is not a chance in Hell that Kevin Sumlin could survive a 4+ loss season at Texas A&M in his 6 th year on the job!

5.  Bret Bielema, Arkansas – We have been calling our friends in Arkansas since the Hogs lost to TCU at home in Week 2 and the word we are getting is the folks that have influence and can make things happen in Fayetteville are getting Damn tired of Arkansas AD Jeff Long’s dog and pony making excuse show for Brett Bielema which when you get down it is really…

Jeff Long defending his own decision-making

…which includes…

Hiring Bobby Petrino as head coach at Arkansas
Hiring John L. Smith as interim head coach at Arkansas
Hiring Bret Bielema as head coach at Arkansas

…and if the Arkansas football program continues to falter under Bielema the first person that will be show the door is Jeff Long who will be lucky to get a job shining shoes in an athletic department after what would then be…

THREE major hiring decisions that have brought the Arkansas football program to the brink of a Total Meltdown with a loss to Texas A&M on Saturday

…which would leave Bret Bielema’s record in SEC Conference play at….

10 – 23

…in his 5 th season on the job which is so far beyond Damn Awful that’s Bielema and Company will no longer be able to see Damn Awful if they lose to the Aggies!

Oh here is what Arkansas has left to play this season:

Texas A&M (Dallas)
New Mexico State
At South Carolina
At Alabama
At Ole Miss
Coastal Carolina
Mississippi State

If Arkansas loses to Texas A&M on Saturday we don’t see more than 7 wins for the Hogs in 2017 and there is not a chance in Hell that Bret Bielema can survive only winning 7 wins in his 5 th year as the head coach at Arkansas….unless of course fans of Arkansas Football are willing to accept…

So Damn Pitiful you might as well shutdown your Disgraceful Football Program!

6.  David Beaty, Kansas – If you think that Nebraska AD Shawn Eichorst is right on the edge of getting his ass run right out of Lincoln….

It Is!

…then you check-out Kansas AD Sheahon Zenger who long ago should be fired if the folks running things at the University of Kansas knew their Ass From the Side of a Barn because it’s now Zenger who has hired the last two head football coaches at Kansas…

Charlie Weis
David Beaty

…who combined have posted win/loss records at KU of:

Overall:  9 – 46

Big 12:  2 – 25

Those wins/loss records are OUTRAGEOUS even at KU and if we were the President at the University of Kansas we would fire AD Sheahon Zenger today because there is not a chance in Hell he needs to be in Lawrence to hire the next head football coach at KU because there is going to be a change in head coaches later this season with the Jayhawks still having to play these games this season:

West Virginia
Texas Tech
At Iowa State
Kansas State
At Texas
At Oklahoma State

Memo to University of Kansas: This time hire a head coach for the University of Kansas Football Team that is…

Actually Qualified for the Freaking Job

…and there should be NO ONE on the potential coaches hiring list that are not Actually Qualified for the Freaking Job with both Weis and Beaty not remotely qualified to the head coach at a FBS + Big 12 Conference School!

7.  Brian Kelly, Notre Dame – Brian Kelly’s Notre Dame football team beat Boston College on Saturday which is a team that under Steve Addazio has posted a win/loss record of…

25 – 29

….so of course any Average Irish team should whip the BC Eagles and now it’s onto a game…

At Michigan State

…on Saturday which like BC is also a game that Brian Kelly cannot lose because it would continue to send Kelly’s tenure at Notre Dame into a tailspin in a year when the Irish need to win 10+ games if Kelly has any hope of returning to coach ND in 2018.

What is left on Notre Dame’s schedule and can the Irish get 8 more wins at least from the below remaining games?

At Michigan State
Miami (OH)
At North Carolina
NC State
Wake Forest
At Miami
At Stanford

Our guess…Notre Dame wins 7 or 8 games in 2017 which would be the….

5 of 8 seasons

…that Brian Kelly has won less 9 games in a season and that is….

Below Damn Average

…in South Bend and that is why Brian Kelly now finds himself squarely on the Hot Seat!

8.  Ed Orgeron, LSU – Anyone that thinks that Ed Orgeron can’t be fired in his first full-year on the job at LSU doesn’t understand the mindset of the money LSU folks who just flat-out are not going to tolerate the Tigers to continue to stagnate or fall behind the rest of the SEC Conference and if Orgeron doesn’t win at least 8 games in 2017 not only will Coach O be sent pack by early December, but LSU AD Joe Alleva will also get run out of Baton Rouge on a rail because Orgeron is Alleva’s hire and how Coach O performs the rest of this season will determine both of their future fates.

After the Devastating and Embarrassing whipping that Mississippi State put on LSU the Tigers have left to play in 2017:

At Florida
At Ole Miss
At Alabama
At Tennessee
Texas A&M

Do you see 7 more wins for LSU in 2017 if the Tigers continue to play the way they played against Mississippi State?

Not A Chance In Hell and we have some news for Coach O…..your “dream job” is about to disappear Son if you don’t get off your ass and get your coaches and team off their asses and if you get fired at LSU Coach O your head coaching career at the FBS level will be OVER because no AD with a working brain will hire a coach that can’t win BIG at LSU where any Damn Moron could show up in Baton Rouge tomorrow and for Damn sure could take Mississippi State with a lot less talent to the end of the game instead of getting your ass whipped like the LSU coaches were doing NOTHING all week instead of getting their players ready to play a SEC Conference game!

Don’t lose to pretty decent Syracuse team on Saturday Coach O because if you do both You and Joe Alleva might find your asses out of a job before the Sun rises on Sunday morning in Baton Rouge!

9.  Scottie Montgomery, East Carolina – In two seasons on the job East Carolina head coach Scottie Montgomery has posted records of….

Overall:  3 – 12

AAC : 1 – 7

…after the 47 point loss to Virginia Tech on Saturday and if the current Total Disaster trend continues not only will Scottie Montgomery find his ass out of a job but ECU AD Jeff Compher who fired Ruffin McNeil to hire Scottie Montgomery should be fired as well just for being…

A Total Damn Idiot!

Here is the rest of East Carolina’s schedule this season:

At UConn
At Houston
At Memphis

East Carolina might win 3 games in 2017….MIGHT…and if ECU only wins 3 games in 2017 which is what Scottie Montgomery won last season that pales in comparison to how many wins a season Ruffin McNeil averaged winning at ECU:


Forrest Gump said many times that “Stupid Is As Stupid Does” and the reality is this situation at East Carolina is way beyond Stupid and moving into an area that there is no word in the English language for that we describe what is going on in Greenville, North Carolina!

10.  Barry Odom, Missouri – After watching Purdue lay at 35 – 3 whipping on Mizzou on Saturday we here at Coaches Hot Seat are starting to wonder….

Just what in the Hell is Barry Odom doing at Missouri

….because for Damn sure it does not look like he is coaching his football team!

Barry Odom in his second…and may be last….season as the head coach at Missouri where he has now posted records of…

Overall:  5 – 10

SEC:  2 – 7

….and his record against FBS teams now stands at:

3 – 10

…and here is what the Tigers have left to play in 2017:

At Kentucky
At Georgia
At UConn
At Vanderbilt
At Arkansas

Memo to Barry Odom:  You better Damn win at least 6 games in 2017 Son or your ass will be out of a head coaching job come December and with games at Kentucky and at Georgia after the home game against Auburn you better Damn beat the Auburn Tigers on Saturday if you hope to find that 6 win mark Coach!
