So begins the 15 th season of Coaches Hot Seat covering the Great Game of College Football here in the 2021 season and as has been the custom since we cranked this thing up in 2007 we ask the Late Great Johnny Cash to come out and give these Hot Seat Coaches Hell!
In 2021 we are going to do shorter blog posts on individual Head Coaches and their current situation either after the past weekend’s game or just before the coming week’s games and with that in mind we start the 2021 season with what was nothing short of a Complete and Total Disaster for Nebraska Football this past Saturday against Illinois and for one Scott Frost….
#1 Hot Seat – Scott Frost – Nebraska
Since Scott Frost began his college career at Stanford in 1993 – 1994 before transferring to play for Nebraska in his home state this is very personal for us, and we don’t want to see Frost on the Hot Seat but what in the Hell are you going to do when a Nebraska Head Coach is sitting on records of…
Overall: 12 – 21
Big Ten: 9 – 18
…in his fourth season on the job in Lincoln?
The Nebraska football team we watched play against an Illinois team with a new head coach in Bret Bielema, who got his ass run out of the SEC, was little different…some here will argue worse…than the Nebraska football program that Frost took over in 2018 which went 4 – 8 in Mike Riley’s last and third year on the job in Lincoln in 2017.
Most shocking of all the numbers we have looked at in Scott Frost’s time at Nebraska is his Win/Loss Record against teams with .500+ record which is now at…wait for it…
3 – 17
The above means that 75% of Scott Frost’s wins have come from teams with sub .500 records!
Now at 0 – 1 with these games left to play in 2021….
Fordham Buffalo At Oklahoma At Michigan State Northwestern Michigan At Minnesota Purdue Ohio State At Wisconsin Iowa
….we will give Nebraska and Frost the next 2 wins and then a loss at OU which will see the Huskers travel to East Lansing on September 25 with a record of….
2 – 2
Nebraska has Equal or Better Talent on their Roster than…
Michigan State Northwestern Michigan Minnesota Purdue
…so by all rights the Huskers should have a good chance of getting to 6 wins in 2021 which in our opinion is the MINIMUM number of wins that Scott Frost needs to return to coach Nebraska in 2022.
And with that we are off and running for the 2021 College Football Season and we encourage everyone to Get Vaccinated and Be Safe Out There and no doubt we will see a number of you a College Football Games this Fall because we will have half-dozen or so Coaches Hot Seat folks attending 2 to 4 CFB Games each week and we cannot wait to get back on the road after sitting on our asses at home in 2020!
Well the 2020 College Football Regular Season is over and we moved into bowl season…such as it is….and with that we actually have a chance for a few Head Coaches on the Hot Seat to make things worse if they take losing teams to bowl games and lose and then we have some Coaches on the Hot Seat who along with their teams are…
Hiding Like Damn Cowards behind Corona Virus!
Save us the “kids have been thru so much” because we got 50+ folks Coaches Hot Seat did multiple 6+ month deployments on the oceans of the world in the US Navy including Operation Desert Storm in 1991 and guess what…
Their Asses Weren’t Crying About Having To Do That and Were Proud to Do it For America!
These Worthless Crying College Head Coaches who will NEVER do One Damn Thing For America in their lives on Earth that are now hiding because the last few months been “tough” need lesson on what “Tough” really is in life!
Give these Damn Hot Seat Coaches Hell Johnny Cash!
1. Jim Harbaugh, Michigan – It was no surprise to us that the Michigan Football program totally imploded going down the stretch and has now gotten out of games against…
Ohio State Iowa Bowl Game
…because these are Damn Cowards in Michigan…that’s right…
Shameful Damn Cowards!
You are a Damn Disgrace Jim Harbaugh and your Team is a Freaking Disgrace because what happened at Michigan in 2020 is the…
The Michigan Football Team Quit On and Off the Field and how Jim Harbaugh is still the Michigan Head Coach is a mystery to us but then if we AD at Michigan we grabbed Jimmy by the scruff of the neck and tossed his ass to the curb already because this meltdown of Michigan Football On and Off the Field is nothing short of a…
Total Damn Disgrace!
The FACTS are that since Michigan lost to Ohio State to end the 2018 season Jim Harbaugh’s records are…
Overall: 11 – 9
Big Ten: 8 – 7
…and if Michigan hadn’t run like Damn Cowards Jim Harbaugh would about to have THREE more losses to add to the above Total Disaster Records!
What A Damn Disgrace!
2. Jeremy Pruitt, Tennessee – A few years back Derek Dooley was the Head Coach at Tennessee and was fired after 3 seasons on the job when he posted a record of…
15 – 21
…and now with the cancellation of the Tennessee bowl game…
And who is really surprised that Vols Football has Totally Melted Down just like Michigan did going down the stretch…we certainly were not!
….Jeremy Pruitt has 3 seasons on the job in Knoxville and his record is…
16 – 19
Please now…what in the Hell is the difference between those 2 records?
We will tell you in our humble opinion….Phil Fulmer hired Jeremy Pruitt from the 3 Finalists of…
Kevin Steele Mel Tucker Jeremy Pruitt
…NONE of which we EVER interviewed for the Tennessee job because we are NOT Total Stupid Shits like Fulmer and Phil is NEVER going to admit he was wrong about anything and would…
Burn Down Tennessee Football Burn Down State of Tennessee Burn Down American Republic
….before he admit he was wrong about anything….in our humble opinion!
Be Proud Fans of Tennessee Football..
You got a Raving Dumbass Egomaniac in the AD slot with a Pompous Arrogant Ass Punk who believes his Precious Ass is God On Earth as in the Head Coach slot….in our humble opinion!
Be Proud…Be Mighty Damn Proud!
3. Clay Helton, USC – We thought maybe Clay Helton had actually done some Real Work this past offseason and the Trojans were no longer a Total Train Wreck like they been in recent years under Helton and we were thinking USC would roll a Very Average Oregon team at home in Pac-12 Championship Game which was coming off losses to Cal and Oregon State and yet….
USC in the Biggest Game of the Season playing against the ONLY team with a winning record it faced in 2020…
Did Not Show Up At All to Play for the Pac-12 Title!
How Clay Helton is still employed as the USC Head Coach this morning is beyond us because this is what the Trojans did in 2020….
Barely beat .500 Arizona State team Barely beat Winless Arizona team Struggled against Average Utah team Beat Losing Record Washington State team Beat Losing Record UCLA team
LOST to Only Damn Winning Record Team it played against in 2020…Oregon!
What a Damn Disaster but be Happy USC Fans….you will get more of this Horseshit in 2021!
4. Tom Herman, Texas – As long-time Texas alum buddy of ours has said many times about Tom Herman >
“If your ass gonna be a Pompous Arrogant Ass Jerk your ass better Damn win big and Tom has been nothing but Average at Texas.”
Tom Herman in 4 seasons at Texas has posted records of…
Overall: 31 – 18
Big 12: 22 – 13
…and that is Average As Hell and thus why Herman on the Hot Seat!
If we were the AD at Texas we would have fired Herman after the last game of the season and hired Coastal Carolina Head Coach Jamey Caldwell who be a Mighty Good Fit at Texas because he is a…
Winner Who Wins and Loses With Class and who can Interact with Fat Cat Boosters and Everyone Else!
5. Jeff Brohm, Purdue – In 4 seasons at Purdue while making north of $20 Million Dollars Jeff Brohm has posted records of…
Overall: 19 – 25
Big Ten: 14 – 19
….and that is nothing short of a…
Total and Complete Disaster!
On top of the above Purdue was able to Weasel out of 2 games against Indiana in 2020 which is nothing short of a…
Total and Complete Disgrace!
Shameful….Just So Shameful!
6. Scott Frost, Nebraska – There is probably no Non-Stanford Head Coach we want to see win more than Scott Frost because we love the kid but Frost in 3 seasons at Nebraska has posted records of..
Overall: 12 – 20
Big Ten: 9 – 17
Mike Riley in 3 seasons at Nebraska posted records of….
Overall: 19 – 19
Big Ten: 12 – 14
…and was Fired and Run Out of Lincoln on a Rail and yet Scott Frost survives with lot worse records?
That is NUTS but Frost’s record against FBS Teams with .500+ records now stands at…
5 – 17
…and that is nothing short of a…
Total and Complete Disaster!
We have no idea how Scott Frost is still the Head Coach at Nebraska but then we not going to EVER tolerate….
So far Below Mediocrity you cannot even see it!
7. Mike Leach, Mississippi State – We never thought Mike Leach was a good fit for the Mississippi State job and thought Leach fit a lot better at Arkansas where you can get more of Leach-type players and so far the Leach Experiment in Starkville is sitting on a record of…
3 – 7
…which is a Total Disaster and looking ahead to 2021 Mississippi State’s Schedule looks like this with SEC dates not set yet >
Louisiana Tech NC State At Memphis Tennessee Tech At Arkansas At Auburn Alabama Kentucky LSU Ole Miss At Texas A&M At Vanderbilt
Geez…that looks like 3 or 4 or maybe 5 wins tops again in 2021 and if it’s not a .500+ record next season that’s going to be a Helluva problem for Mike Leach a year from today!
8. Justin Fuente, Virginia Tech – Our Expectations for Virginia Tech is that the Hokies will be in the running and challenging Clemson for the ACC Title Every Single Season especially in the 5 th year of a Head Coach in Blacksburg but instead of the Hokies getting better under Justin Fuente they seem to be getting Worse of just Treading Water and if we the AD at Virginia Tech we fired Fuente this year…but then…
Our Expectations for Virginia Tech a Helluva Lot Higher than Va. Tech AD Whit Babcock’s are and that is a…
Total Damn Disgrace!
There just is No Way in Hell Justin Fuente will make Virginia Tech competitive with Clemson anytime soon and Sorry….
That’s just Not Acceptable to Anyone who with a 2+ IQ!
9. Dino Babers, Syracuse – We believe in Dino Babers ability to be a Winning Head Coach but as we have watched Syracuse play the last couple of seasons it’s almost as if his team is coming apart at the seams off the field and that’s something Dino needs to focus on and fix which brings to mind this quote by the Late Great Bill Walsh >
“The culture precedes positive results. It doesn’t get tacked on as an afterthought on your way to the victory stand. Champions behave like champions before they’re champions: they have a winning standard of performance before they are winners.”
You better Fix the Culture at Syracuse Dino and Fix It Quick Son!
10. Dana Holgorsen, Houston – For a school in Houston that only just a few seasons ago was knocking on a Top 10 Ranking the last 2 years under Dana Holgorsen at Houston have been nothing short of a Complete and Total Disaster with Holgorsen now sitting on records of…
Overall: 7 – 12
AAC: 5 – 9
We talked to one our buddies down Houston way last week and he tells us…
“Holgorsen doesn’t win 8 games in 2021 his ass is done at Houston.”
In the 50+ years that the 7 people that founded Coaches Hot Seat in the Fall of 2006 been on Earth we cannot recall anything like what has happened in 2020, and even as we are more connected than ever on the Internet it’s our opinion the American People today collectively know less, read less, ask questions less, and ponder big questions less than anytime in American history. We have no idea what’s coming in the next 25 years, but if we are around to see it we are confident people will not believe what we will tell them about what happened in….2020!
One of the things no one will believe in 10 years is that so much time was spent testing College Age Kids for Corona Virus when it has a Fatality Rate lower than the Seasonal Flu for those under 30, but especially that lots of college football games have been cancelled and moved around for Positive Corona Virus Tests that if it was the Flu would mean nothing at all. Corona Virus primarily kills people over the age of 65 and America instead of Protecting Older Americans + Those Pre-Existing Conditions until a Corona Virus Vaccine was available the US + State + Local Governments have taken a Sledgehammer to the entire American Society and if they just done the former there be 200,000+ less dead Americans today.
Indeed, We Are Damn Morons and that will come be well-known in future years once everyone understands what Was and Wasn’t Done to stop a Corona Virus that can be stopped with a combination of Protecting the Vulnerable and a Few Simple Health Rules for the rest. Yes….We Are Damn Morons!
On to College Football in Whatever the Hell Week we just wrapped up it was another fascinating week of football that did have some impact on the Coaches Hot Seat Rankings including launching Louisville Head Coach Scott Satterfield onto the Hot Seat for taking an interview with South Carolina when Scott should have known doing such things at a place like Louisville is Very Damn Stupid Indeed! 3 – 7 Louisville hosts Wake Forest this coming Saturday and we would recommend Scott Satterfield win that game or he may just find his ass launched onto a Hot Seat that could end his Head Coaching career and all for what…
So your ass could turn down a job that went to a Tight-Ends Coach?
Very Dumb Scott Satterfield….Very Damn Dumb Son!
Speaking of Dumb when Will Muschamp was hired as the South Carolina Head Coach by AD Ray Tanner 5 years ago we wrote in this Coaches Hot Seat Blog why in the Hell someone would hire a coach that got his ass fired a Florida where it’s almost impossible to get your ass fired since Captain Kangaroo would win 8 games a year at Florida?
5 Years Later Will Muschamp is now gone leaving behind records of..
Overall: 28 – 30
SEC: 17 – 22
…which was as predictable as the Sun coming up in the East but as Batshit Crazy as the hiring of Will Muschamp was the hiring of Shane Beamer who at 43 years of ago has NEVER even held a Coordinator Position on Any Level of Football is a Total Damn Lunacy not of this Earth or of Any Known Planet in the Universe!
In 2019 we were talking to a College Football Coach about Shane Beamer and asked him why Beamer had not gotten a Coordinator Position and his response was >
“He will never get a Coordinator Position, but I would bet he will get a Head Coaching Job because of his last name and only because of his last name.”
We happen to agree and if you change Shane Beamer’s last name to Smith there’s not a Chance In Hell he would have even gotten an interview for the South Carolina Head Coaching Job since there are at least 500 Coaches in College Football more accomplished than Smith….make that Beamer!
Shane Beamer spent 4 years at South Carolina and he’s a Bright Kid…but what in the Hell does that have to do with South Carolina hiring…
The Very Best Damn Coach it Can = A Winner That Has Proven He Can Win on the FBS Level as A Head Coach!
South Carolina just hired a Tight-Ends Coach from Oklahoma because his last name is Beamer and in our opinion…..
Ray Tanner should be fired today but he won’t be because Ray Tanner could Totally Destroy South Carolina Football and Burn Down the University of South Carolina and Stupid Shits in South Carolina be lined-up for miles in Columbia to tell you about how great Ray Tanner is….in our humble opinion!
Please…this Shane Beamer hiring is Total Damn Lunacy after the Batshit Crazy hiring of Will Muschamp and in a Sane World Ray Tanner would be in an Insane Asylum….in our humble opinion!
On to the Whatever the Hell It is Week Coaches Hot Seat Rankings!
Mr. Johnny Cash could you please give these Hot Seat Coaches Hell?
1. Jim Harbaugh, Michigan – Jim Harbaugh is the same age as many folks at Coaches Hot Seat so we grew up watching Jim, playing College Football the same time as Jim, knowing Jim’s Father Jack Harbaugh, and generally we were very supportive of Jim getting the Stanford job in 2006 and we pushed as much as we could for Stanford to hire Jim over the other finalist who will remain nameless in this blog.
People you give a Damn about you will give the hardest time when they are slacking off and it’s our opinion since Ohio State boat-raced Michigan at the end of the 2018 season the Michigan Football Team has been on a continuous spiral downwards with Little to No Damn Leadership from Jim Harbaugh which led to these records since that OSU game >
Overall: 11 – 9
Big Ten: 8 – 7
We know some folks in Ann Arbor and have a suspicion on what is going on with Jim Harbaugh and why he has lost a lot of his fire the last couple of seasons which has led to a…
Dramatic Decline in Michigan Defensive Play
A Michigan Offense That Has No Rhyme, No Reason, No Heart, No Style, Hell…It Has Nothing At All!
Jim Harbaugh drove Stanford Football, the San Francisco 49rs, and even Michigan Football until the 2018 season like Vince Lombardi drove the Green Bay Packers, but that Jim Harbaugh is gone and it’s our opinion if Jim is not going to give his all to Michigan then he should go find something else to do whether it’s coaching in the NFL or something else…
Just go find something you have a Passion for Jim because Michigan Football right now is a…
A buddy ours who works for an NFL team asked us recently…
“Would we hire Jim Harbaugh right now to coach an NFL team?”
Our response was….
“We would have to talk to Jim in person before we could answer that question because something’s wrong with Jim now and maybe a change of scenery would give Jim new energy…or maybe it wouldn’t. For Damn Sure though we would know after talking to Jim for 10 minutes if we would hire him or not and anyone that knows how to interview people the right way would know it too.”
2 – 4 Michigan has Ohio State left on their schedule and the Buckeyes have been established as 30-point favorites in what would be Jim Harbaugh’s….
72 nd game at Michigan
Sorry but if your ass is the Head Football Coach at Michigan and you are 30 point underdogs to Ohio State in your 6 th season on the job…
Your Ass Should Be Fired!
And Bo Schembechler if alive and Michigan AD would have already fired Jim Harbaugh’s ass….in our humble opinion!
2. Kevin Sumlin, Arizona – We are confident that Kevin Sumlin never saw coming where he is now in his Head Coaching Career and what a great lesson Sumlin is if you don’t care about money and no Real Football Coach cares about money because they are too worried about Winning Football Games.
After Kevin Sumlin got fired at Texas A&M and got a Shit-Load-Ton Potful of Money on the way out the door he should have taken a year or 2 off from coaching but for some reason Arizona came calling to hire a coach who just got fired at Texas A&M which is a Helluva Lot Easier Place to Win Football Games than Arizona!
Why Arizona ever considered Kevin Sumlin for their head coaching job or why Sumlin took the job is a mystery to us but 3 seasons in Sumlin is sitting on records of..
Overall: 9 – 19
Pac-12: 6 – 16
…which is nothing less than a Total and Complete Disaster!
0 – 4 Arizona hosts 0 – 2 Arizona Sate this coming Friday in what can only be described as…
A Total Disaster in Tucson!
3. Jeremy Pruitt, Tennessee – Tennessee playing a Freshman Quarterback #15 against Florida seemed to keep things pretty simple on Offense to try and get the kid some experience and the Sophomore QB #12 that came in looked even better with him being able to handle some more aggressive plays but really now…
In your 33 rd game as the Head Coach at Tennessee you are not competitive at all against Florida….at home in Neyland Stadium?
Jeremy Pruitt’s records are bad enough…
Overall: 15 – 18
SEC: 9 – 15
…but even worse is Pruitt’s record against FBS Teams with .500+ records…
7 – 14
Really….at the University of Tennessee you have a 33% winning percentage against FBS Teams with .500+ records?
Phil Fulmer can do whatever he wants with Jeremy Pruitt job status as long as he’s the AD at Tennessee but there’s Not A Chance In Hell if we had taken over the Vols AD job 3 years ago we interviewed any of the 3 Candidates that Fulmer had as his finalists…
Mel Tucker Kevin Steele Jeremy Pruitt
Really….that’s the best Tennessee Football can do?
Sorry but that’s Damn Pitiful and the now 2 – 6 Vols have left in 2020…
At Vanderbilt Texas A&M
…and if Tennessee loses to Vanderbilt this coming Saturday we have been told by our friends in Knoxville that there’s better than a 50 – 50 chance that both Phil Fulmer and Jeremy Pruitt will be fired before the Texas A&M game and Tennessee will go after Hugh Freeze as their next Head Coach….before Auburn does it as well!
4. Justin Fuente, Virginia Tech – A Virginia Tech alum buddy of ours that works on Wall Street called on Sunday and says….
“In the last 3 seasons Fuente’s records are 18 – 18 overall and 13 – 12 in ACC play and for the life of me I cannot imagine Fuente coaching the Hokies in 2021.”
With the 4 – 6 Hokies only having Virginia at home left on the schedule we cannot imagine it either!
5. Tom Herman, Texas – With that 69 – 31 win over Kansas State to move to 6 – 3 on the season and only Pitiful Kansas left Tom Herman will have a 7 – 3 record on the board in 2020 which would leave Herman’s records in 4 seasons at Texas at….
Overall: 32 – 18 .644
Big 12: 22 – 14 .611
If the above records are acceptable to the folks at Texas fine, but they sure the Hell NOT would be acceptable to us nor our Texas-alum buddies who we missed fishing with in South Texas this Summer because of this Damn Corona Virus!
With Urban Meyer reportedly turning down the Texas job that leaves the folks in Austin in an interesting spot with an open engagement with Urban Meyer on the table and no other obvious coach out there that would get Texas Fans and Big Boosters excited.
Now if we were the Athletic Director at Texas understanding the Critical Role that the Head Football Coach at Texas plays in not only winning football games but raising money, talking-up boosters, engaging with fans, and generally being someone who isn’t a Total Damn Ass like Tom Herman who believes his Ass was put on Earth for everyone else to kiss…in our humble opinion….we would fire Tom Herman and hire Any Random Person off the streets of Austin and be assured it be a step-up just on the Human Being scale and yet who should Texas hire to replace Herman then?
Well…if Urban Meyer is out below are the Coaches we would talk to in order to see if they were interested in the Texas Head Coaching Job >
Brian Kelly Dan Mullen Matt Campbell Mario Cristobal Jamey Chadwell Luke Fickell Bryan Harsin
One of the above Coaches would take the Texas job…in our humble opinion and ALL be better than Tom Herman!
6. Jeff Brohm, Purdue – Someone that is making $5M+ Dollars shouldn’t be posting records that look like this at Purdue or anywhere else…
2017: 7 – 6 2018: 6 – 7 2019: 4 – 8 2020: 2 – 4
That 2 – 4 Purdue team has a game left at Indiana so that’s 2 – 5 more than likely in Jeff Brohm’s 4 th year at Purdue and a team that in Brohm’s 44 th game just flat-out…
Got Its Ass Whipped by Nebraska Team that had only 2 Wins coming into the game!
Please…can someone tell us what Jeff Brohm is doing because in our opinion you could fire the Entire Damn Purdue Coaching Staff today and just roll the footballs out onto the practice field and the Boilermakers play a Lot Better and a Helluva Lot Harder!
7. Scott Frost, Nebraska – Scott Frost has now entered the “Mike Shula” era of his career where if Frost can just get his ass dressed in the morning and get his ass into work and beat Pitiful Damn Teams like Penn State and Purdue it’s a…
Famously many Alabama Football Fans were Fighting Like Dogs to keep Mike Shula as the Head Coach at Alabama when after 4 seasons on the job Shula had posted a record of…
26 – 23
..and it is our humble opinion that Scott Frost could Burn Down the Nebraska Football Program and Entire State of Nebraska and a majority of Nebraska Football fans would be cheering him on hoping he could burn down something else!
In the Real World this is called Mass Delusional and it’s a real problem at Nebraska now where people are able to justify Scott Frost sitting on a record of…..
11 – 19
…after 3 years on the job and if the Huskers beat Minnesota to end the season that be..
12 – 19
…and here are the records of the 2 Previous Head Coaches at Nebraska after 3 seasons on the job…
Bill Callahan: 22 – 15
Mike Riley: 19 – 19
As we said….Mass Delusion + Lots of Stupid Shit!
Today most fans of Alabama Football will readily admit that accepting the Mike Shula Years at Alabama was a form of Total Damn Lunacy and eventually if Scott Frost continues on his current trend it will be seen as Total Damn Lunacy as well.
8. Dino Babers, Syracuse – With the loss to Notre Dame on Saturday the Orange finished at 1 – 10 in 2020 and Dino Babers records after 5 seasons on the job now stand at…
Overall: 24 – 36
SEC: 13 – 29
…with only ONE Winning Season on the board and if that’s OK for the folks that run and cheer for Syracuse Football then Fine and Dandy and immediately turn in your American Citizen Cards because your ass should be living in a Communist Country that is willing to accept Total Mediocrity!
9. Les Miles, Kansas – With only Texas left on the schedule for 0 – 9 Kansas Les Miles is headed for a Winless Record in his 2nd Season on the job which has left Miles’ records at…
Overall: 3 – 17
Big 12: 1 – 15
Please…Someone…Anyone…can you tell us why Les Miles was hired at Kansas?
Looking for some Damn Moron to speak-up and we don’t even see or hear that!
10. Gus Malzahn, Auburn – If Gus Malzahn is succeeding at Auburn then Auburn Fans must be willing to accept 4+ Losses A Season for…wait for it…
7 Straight Seasons Now
….which is what you got with Gus Malzahn and that would be FIVE losses in 2020 if the SEC Conference actually employed Refs that knew their ass from the side of a barn…the Bogus Arkansas Game ending of course!
What it really comes down to Auburn is…
Are you willing to accept Total Damn Mediocrity?
If you are….GREAT….then keep Gus Malzahn but understand that you…meaning Auburn….
There is no way back in the Summer that we could have predicted that so much of America would be unable to follow Simple Rules to stop the spread of a Virus which are Simple Rules we have followed for years during Flu Season which basically is…
Wash Hands Lots Limit Time Inside Public Buildings
…which has only added…
Wear Masks Inside Public Buildings
…in 2020 to stop the spread of Corona Virus and yet here we are heading towards Christmas.
America has 100,000+ more deaths from Corona Virus than any other country on Earth and deservedly so because when your ass cannot follow even Very Simple Rules then you gonna have a Helluva Mess on your hands and that is where America is right now.
Come on folks!
Let’s bring out the Great Johnny Cash to give these Hot Seat Coaches Hell!
1. Jim Harbaugh, Michigan – We haven’t a Damn Clue what is going on with Michigan Football, but that performance by Michigan on Saturday against a winless Penn State team was easily….
The Worst Performance by a Michigan Football Team in our 50+ Years on Earth!
We also haven’t a Damn Clue what Jim Harbaugh is trying to do with the Michigan Offense but what the Wolverines are now running on Offense is…
Total Crapola….no make that Total Damn Stupid Shit Total Crapola!
It has gotten so bad at Michigan that Jim Harbaugh now…
Poses a Clear and Present Danger to the Safety and Well-Being to Michigan Football Players
….in our opinion because Jim Harbaugh is no longer coaching football at Michigan and you could just roll the footballs onto the practice fields at Michigan and the Wolverines players would not only field a better team they would actually be…
Safer on Gameday because they would actually be Practicing Football!
Michigan is now 2 – 4 in 2020 and they have beaten…
Awful Minnesota Pitiful Penn State
…and needed 3 Overtimes to beat a Rutgers team that was one the worst college football teams in America the last 5 years coming into the 2020 season!
If we were the Athletic Director at Michigan we would have already fired Jim Harbaugh because he does in our opinion…
Poses a Clear and Present Danger to the Safety and Well-Being to Michigan Football Players
….because this is Not Football being played at Michigan, Hell it’s not even Patty-Cake…YES Michigan Football is now playing…
…and Every Damn Powder Puff Team we have seen play football in our 50+ years on Earth could…
Whip the Living Hell out of this Michigan Football Team!
Memo to Michigan AD Ward Manuel: If you care about the Safety and Well-Being of the Michigan Football Players fire Jim Harbaugh today!
2 – 4 Michigan has left….
Maryland At Ohio State
…and it’s certainly possible Michigan will find a way to weasel out of an Total Ass Whipping in Columbus but can Blue even beat Maryland at home?
They couldn’t beat a Winless Penn State Team that just got whipped by Nebraska which is…
One of the worse Power 5 Conference Football Teams in America!
2. Tom Herman, Texas – It goes without saying when you get Tom Herman as your Head Football Coach you know going in you are hiring…
One of the Most Pompous Arrogant Ass Human Beings on the Earth who believes his Ass is God on Earth and Every Other Human Being is a Worthless Piece of Shit
…in our humble opinion but one would think Herman thinking his ass is God on Earth would at least…
Win A Helluva Lot of Football Games and Championships
…and yet Herman’s records at Texas where Bozo the Clown could win .675 of their games is now…
Overall: 30 – 18 (.625)
Big 12: 21 – 13
5 – 3 Texas has left in 2020…
At Kansas State At Kansas
…and Every Damn Powder Puff Team in America could whip the Hell out of Kansas so we will see what Texas does against Kansas State but we are talking about Texas here and in Year 4 you would think that…
God Almighty Himself = Tom Herman
…would as the Head Coach at TEXAS be able to beat Kansas State….Right?
Someone in Austin needs to fire God Almighty and after you fire his Worthless Damn Ass kick his Worthless Damn Ass off the University of Texas campus and then hold a press conference saying…
Only a Total Stupid Shit would hire Tom Herman….unless you want a Worthless Ass Pompous Arrogant Punk as your Head Coach….in our humble opinion.
3. Kevin Sumlin, Arizona – Kevin Sumlin’s records at Arizona say it all…
Overall: 9 – 18
Pac-12: 6 – 15
….but consider Sumlin’s record against FBS Teams with .500+ records now stands at…
2 – 17
…and you have a full understanding at how bad things have gotten at Arizona which has now lost…wait for it… 10 Straight Football Games!
0 – 3 Arizona now has left in 2020…..
Colorado Arizona State
…which looks like 2 more less and that would be 12 Straight Losses for Arizona heading into the 2021 season with or without Kevin Sumlin and the next time an Athletic Director thinks about hiring a coach that just….
Got His Ass Fired at a place like Texas A&M where Captain Kangaroo can win 8 games a season and got a Massive $$$ Buyout….Don’t Do It….
Just Don’t Damn Do It you Damn Moron AD and there are Lots of Damn Moron ADs in America today!
4. Scott Frost, Nebraska – One would think by Scott Frost’s 29 th game as the Head Coach at Nebraska that the Huskers be able to beat Iowa but an even better question that we be asking of Frost after his football team lost 26 – 20 to Iowa on the road is…
“How in the Hell Son can you play Iowa to a tough game until the end on the road and the week before you get your ass whipped by a very mediocre Illinois team at home? Please explain that to me Son!”
With that loss Scott Frost, who is making $5M Dollars A Year and should be for that kind of money be able to field a football team that actually shows up in home games in Lincoln, records now stand at…
Overall: 10 – 19
Big Ten: 7 – 16
For almost $15M Dollars in the bank now for Scott Frost and he has put up those records?
Try Scott Frost has not EARNED $10 Damn Dollars because Nebraska could have hired…
Any Damn Moron off the streets of Omaha 3 years ago and paid him $10 Damn Dollars and His or Her Ass could have posted records of…
Overall: 10 – 19
Big Ten: 7 – 16
The 1 – 4 Huskers now have left in 2020…
At Purdue Minnesota
….and based upon the way Nebraska has played in 2020 that looks like 1 more loss at least at Purdue which just lost back-to-back games against Very Mediocre Minnesota and Purdue and then a battle of the…
2 Biggest Cream Puff Teams in America on December 12 in Lincoln = Minnesota vs. Purdue
5. Jeremy Pruitt, Tennessee – Somehow the Vols were able to wiggle out of playing Vanderbilt riding a 5 game losing streak which would with a loss to Vandy led to both Phil Fulmer and Jeremy Pruitt being fired within 24 hours and now 2 – 5 Tennessee has coming up…
Florida Texas A&M
….the #5 and #6 teams in the country who are both motivated to keep winning to keep alive the potential for playing in the College Football Playoff which looks like 2 more losses and a….
2 – 7
…record of Jeremy Pruitt in his THIRD year on the job and if you are thinking that Tennessee could have hired…
Paul Finebaum to coach Tennessee
…and he done better than Jeremy Pruitt coaching the Vols the last 3 seasons…
You would be right!
If Tennessee did finish in Pruitt’s THIRD year on the job at…
Overall: 2 – 7
SEC: 2 – 7
….that would be quite the come-down from the last Vols Head Coach Butch Jones who in his THIRD year at Tennessee posted records of…
Overall: 9 – 4
SEC: 5 – 3
Yes…Congrats Tennessee Fans on that Great Hire the Great and God Almighty Himself Phil Fulmer made there in Jeremy Pruitt who is worse than the Head Coach the Vols ran out of town but don’t expect Fulmer or Pruitt to ever admit they have been wrong on Tennessee Football or Anything Else because you see when you are a…
Pompous Arrogant Ass like both Fulmer and Pruitt
….are in our humble opinion fully expect them to Takedown Tennessee Football and burn down everything in sight before they leave town with Millions and Millions of Dollars of YOUR $$$…in our humble opinion.
6. Justin Fuente, Virginia Tech – Justin Fuente, even in the 10 – 4 season in his first year on the job at Virginia Tech, has lost 4+ games every season he has coached the Hokies and with already 5 losses on the board in 2020 with a record of 4 – 5 and games left against…
….that at best will be 5 – 6 in Justin Fuente’s FIFTH year on the job in Blacksburg and if that is acceptable to the folks that support Virginia Football then Bless you folks!
It’s hard to know anymore what the Expectations are a place like Virginia Tech, which we would guess would be Playing for the ACC Title Every Damn Year but maybe we are wrong, so we don’t have a good handle on whether Justin Fuente can survive going 5 – 6 in his FIFTH year on the job at Va. Tech but maybe he can….maybe he can!
7. Dino Babers, Syracuse – Syracuse played NC State on the road tough before losing 36 – 29 and it was nice to see some fight in the Orange, but with that loss Syracuse falls to…
1 – 9
…in 2020 and they still have to play a game against…
The Irish will be very motivated to not only Win but make it a Big Win and that means the Orange are going to finish at…
1 – 10
….in Dino Babers FIFTH year on the job at Syracuse and because of Corona Virus maybe Dino can hang onto his job but for sure Dino will be on a Roaring Hot Seat entering the 2021 season if he is back to coach the OAt Notre Damnrange next year!
8. Les Miles, Kansas – Why was Les Miles hired as the Head Coach at Kansas when the…
Last Damn Thing on Earth that Kansas needed was another Fired Re-Tread Coach 2 Seasons Ago?
No idea but Les Miles records the last 2 seasons at Kansas now stand at…
Overall: 3 – 16
Big 12: 1 – 14
….and again we ask no one in particular but mainly folks with Sub 2 IQs because they be the only ones EVER consider hiring Les Miles at Kansas 2 seasons ago >
Why was Les Miles hired at Kansas?
Kansas now at 0 – 7 has left in 2020….
At Texas Tech Texas
…which sure looks like 2 losses to us and…
0 – 9
…in Les Miles 2 nd year on the job and again…
Why was Les Miles hired at Kansas?
9. Mike Leach, Mississippi State – If Mississippi State is going to fire a coach in Joe Moorhead who posted records of…
8 – 5 6 – 7
….in 2 seasons at the school then the coach you hired to replace Moorhead whether it’s Mike Leach or Anyone Else if they have posted a record of…
2 – 6
…you will find your ass squarely on the Hot Seat and the 2 – 6 Bulldogs have left to play in 2020…
…in a game that Gus Malzahn cannot lose because if Malzhan does lose to this Totally Pitiful Mississippi State Team on December 12 there’s a very good chance that Malzahn will be fired so we don’t see Auburn losing this game…but they could….it’s Freaking Gus Malzahn!
If Mississippi State does lose to Auburn to fall to 2 – 7 in 2020 then Mike Leach will enter the 2021 season on of the Hottest Hot Seats in America and Oh how the Bulldogs football program has fallen since Dan Mullen took off for Florida but it fell Helluva Lot Further when the Pirate showed-up and do we think Mike Leach gives 2 Damn Rips about anything but his Own Precious Ass?
No…Mike Leach is in our opinion one of the Most Selfish Human Beings on the Earth and like his “Hero” Mike loves talking about how “Tough” he is and “War” and all kinds of other Damn Nonsense but has Mike Leach or his “Hero” spent one nanosecond serving in the US Military?
Of course not….just 2 Candy Asses love talking “Tough” but asses go running like Damn Cowards when things get “Tough” like all the other Damn Cowards that block people on Twitter that dare disagree with their Precious Asses!
10. Jeff Brohm, Purdue – The last 2 seasons Jeff Brohm has been paid…
2019: $5.35M 2020: $5.55M
….for a Total of $10.9M and in the last 2 seasons Brohm has posted records of…
Overall: 6 – 11
Big Ten: 5 – 9
…..and one would think if you going to be paid almost $11M Dollars you would get your football team to show-up and play football and yet the Boilermakers look like one of the…
Worst Coached Teams in Power 5 Conference Football
…and are now on a 3 Game Losing Streak with games left against…
Nebraska At Indiana
No way this Purdue team beats Indiana in 2020 but can they beat a…
Pitiful and Mediocre Nebraska Team at home on Saturday?
Who knows because both Nebraska and Purdue are…
2 of the Worst Coached Teams in Power 5 Conference Football
As we head into the 2020 Thanksgiving Weekend the American People have Lost the Plot in slowing down a Corona Virus that is easy to stop if you follow just a few simple rules and with a President, Congress, and US Gov’t that has almost Totally Checked-Out and to that we can only say…
Stay Safe Out There Folks Because There Is No Leader in America that cares whether your ass is Dead or Alive!
1. Derek Mason, Vanderbilt – Vandy is not an easy job to win games at but one would think that over 7 seasons a coach would win more than…
10 SEC Conference Games
…and with Derek Mason’s records at Vandy now at…
Overall: 27 – 54
SEC: 10 – 45
…and games left against…
At Mizzou At Georgia Tennessee
…time is running short in 2020 to get 1 SEC win this season although Vandy has shown fight this season and give Mason credit for that!
We have no idea what the Expectations are at Vanderbilt, but we been to a half-dozen or so Vandy football games in Nashville and we talked to plenty of folks around Music City and our opinion is that generally the Administration at Vanderbilt University really…
Just doesn’t care whether Vandy football wins or not!
That’s Pitiful….Just Pitiful!
2. Jim Harbaugh, Michigan – How exactly does a Michigan team coached by Jim Harbaugh in Jimmy’s 70 th game at the school in his 6 th season on the job in Ann Arbor need 3 overtimes to beat a Rutgers team with a first-year Head Coach that took over a Damn Disaster we haven’t a Damn Clue and yet…
In Jim Harbaugh’s 70 th game at Michigan..at MICHIGAN…he needed 3 overtimes to beat Rutgers….FREAKING RUTGERS!
Since Ohio State beat Michigan 62 – 39 to end the 2018 reason season Michigan’s records under Jim Harbaugh now stand at…
Overall: 11 – 7
Big 10: 8 – 6
….and it looks to us that Jim Harbaugh has just accepted that Michigan will forever play 2 nd fiddle behind the Buckeyes so what exactly is the point in chasing Excellence when you can make $8M+ a season being just merely Average As Hell?
Hell…if Michigan is willing to pay someone $8M+ a year for Average As Hell the all the Worthless As Hell Average Human Beings in America…
Apply for Jobs at the University of Michigan = Where Average As Hell is Richly Rewarded!
Well…when your record the last 2 seasons at Michigan is 11 – 7 Overall and 8 – 6 in the Big 10 make that….
With games left against…
Penn State Maryland At Ohio State
….we will be fascinated to what Blue does in this spot because if they lose to this Pitiful Penn State team and a Maryland team that shouldn’t be able to stay on the field with Michigan then we will know that Jim Harbaugh has…
Totally and Completely Given Up in Ann Arbor
3. Kevin Sumlin, Arizona – We have a rule at our Ad Agency that we never hire someone from another Agency that has just left that Agency under questionable circumstances = They Totally Failed…and with a big buyout (which is easy to find out in the world of Ad Agencies) and we still don’t have a clue why Arizona hire Kevin Sumlin right after he got fired at Texas A&M with a Massive Buyout because what in Hell exactly is Sumlin’s motivation to turn Arizona into a big winner?
Personal Pride maybe? Sorry, if we were in an Athletic Director position we are not in a zillion years hiring Kevin Sumlin at Arizona or Any Other School in the wake of him getting fired at Texas A&M because the #1 thing we would be looking at for in a Head Coach is…
Hunger! A Deep Hunger to build and maintain a Winning Football Program that focuses like a laser beam on…
Graduating Players Building Winners = Winning Human Beings Winning Games Playing for Championships
Now in his 3 rd season at Arizona Kevin Sumlin has records of…
Overall: 9 – 17
Pac-12: 6 – 14
…and the Wildcats have left…
At UCLA Colorado Arizona State
If all the above games do get played we expect Arizona to finish at 0 – 5 in 2020 and if the folks in Tucson willing to accept that Pitiful Mediocrity then….
Shame On Them and Please….Who in the Hell Raised Your Sorry Asses because for Damn Sure it wasn’t Real Americans!
Winners Do Not Tolerate Pitiful Mediocrity!
4. Jeremy Pruitt, Tennessee – Talking about Pitiful Mediocrity take a gander at Jeremy Pruitt’s records in his 3 rd year at Tennessee >
Overall: 15 – 17
SEC: 9 – 14
Reality is Phil Fulmer could have hired…
Any Damn Random Person Off the Streets of Knoxville
….and He or She could have posted records of…
Overall: 15 – 17
SEC: 9 – 14
….coaching the Vols the last 3 seasons and here’s the benefit of hiring most Anyone off the streets of Knoxville, Tennessee instead of Jeremy Pruitt >
That person would not believe that their ass is God on Earth and be a Worthless Pompous Arrogant Ass Punk like Jeremy Pruitt!
In lots of ways Phil Fulmer and Jeremy Pruitt are perfect for each other because both are…
Pompous Arrogant Ass Punks that believe their asses spun-up the Earth and that everyone else on the planet is Pitiful Peons and should get down on their knees and kiss their Precious Asses and where your ass gets raised to come to believe such Un-American Nonsense is beyond our understanding…just way beyond it!
There’s not a Chance in Hell we allow our kids to play for Jeremy Pruitt today or Phil Fulmer in the past because we want our kids to be Decent Human Beings….Not Pompous Arrogant Ass Punks that when they Win want all the credit…and when their Worthless Asses Lose…blame everyone but themselves!
Don’t send your kids to Tennessee folks….if you love them that is…in our humble opinion!
With the Vanderbilt game now cancelled because of Corona Virus the now 2 – 5 Vols have left games against…
Florida Texas A&M At Vanderbilt
…and the way Vandy is playing these days that could be 3 losses to end the 2020 season and if that happens the folks in Knoxville with $$$ would be smart to fire…
Fulmer and Pruitt
..and hire a couple of people in the AD and Head Coach positions that actually know what the Hell they are doing and are not…
Worthless Pompous Arrogant Ass Punks!
5. Scott Frost, Nebraska – Amazingly Scott Frost said he did not see the Huskers Pitiful Performance against Illinois become because why exactly…
Nebraska beat a Pitiful Penn State Team that the Coaches Hot Seat Flag Football Team could Whip the Hell Out of and Make Them Like It?
Is Scott Frost even alive and breathing on this planet?
His Nebraska football team has NOT Hit Damn Anybody in the last 3 seasons and if there is a Softer Football Team in America than the Huskers in 2020 or any other year then we have not seen them playing and that includes the several dozen Powder Puff Women Teams we have seen play games over the years!
If the Nebraska at Iowa game is played on Friday we are going to tell you what is going to happen >
The Once Mighty Nebraska Cornhuskers are Going To Get Their Asses Physically Whipped because Iowa hits harder than Every Damn Powder Puff Team in America and Every Damn Powder Puff Team in America is Tougher than Scott Frost’s Nebraska Football Team!
The 1 – 3 Huskers have left in 2020…
At Iowa At Purdue Minnesota
….which looks like at least 2 and maybe 3 losses but let’s say Nebraska finishes at 2 – 5 in 2020 that would leave Frost’s Big Ten record in 3 seasons at…
8 – 17
That is acceptable to anyone in the Great State of Nebraska?
If it is Shut Down Nebraska Football because there is No Longer Any Damn Reason For It To Exist!
6. Justin Fuente, Virginia Tech – A Virginia Tech alum buddy of ours when asked about what he thinks about Hokies Football responded….
“What is there to think? It’s been average as Hell for years and it ain’t getting any better anytime soon because no one in Blacksburg cares that Va. Tech football is average as Hell.”
Well said and in his 5 th season at Virginia Tech Head Coach Justin Fuente is sitting on records of…
Overall: 37 – 25
ACC: 24 – 16
…and after 3 straight losses to Liberty, Miami, and Pitt it looks like the 4 – 5 Hokies are on the verge of Totally Quitting with…
….left to play in 2020.
Will someone in Blacksburg, Virginia get tired of Va. Tech football being “average as Hell?”
Not likely because reality is just like in other places across America the folks in Blacksburg willing to accept Pitiful Mediocrity and that is Shameful….it’s is So Damn Shameful!
7. Steve Campbell, South Alabama – With the home loss to South Alabama on Saturday Head Coach Steve Campbell’s records at USA fell to…
Overall: 8 – 26
Sun Belt: 5 – 17
…and the last South Alabama Head Coach Joey Jones was fired after posting the below records…
Overall: 52 – 50
Sun Belt: 18 – 29
….so surely Campbell’s records are not acceptable to the folks at USA…Right?
The 3 – 6 Jaguars have left in 2020….
At Arkansas State Troy
…which are 2 very tough games so a 3 -8 is real possibility in Steve Campbell’s 3 rd year at South Alabama which wouldn’t be acceptable to the folks at USA….Right?
It wouldn’t be acceptable to us!
8. Dino Babers, Syracuse – A College Football Team is a very fragile thing in this Age of Social Media and Woke Folks Everywhere You Look and a Head Coach can easily loose his current team and an entire program by just a couple of what seem like innocent mistakes, and in our opinion Dino Babers got on the wrong side of a couple of things after the Orange’s 10 – 3 season in 2018 which has snowballed itself into a 1 – 8 record in 2020 with games still left against…
NC State At Notre Dame
We have seen and read about Head Coaches losing their teams and in every single instance when the Head Coach was able to turn things around he did something very drastic to change the conversation, such as Paul “Bear” Bryant switching to the wishbone offense after records of…
6 – 5 6 – 5 – 1
….in the 1969 + 1970 seasons which led to a 1970s decade dominated by Alabama with 8 SEC Conference Titles and 3 National Championships.
If we were advising Dino Babers, and assuming Dino is able to hold onto his job at Syracuse to coach again in 2021, we would tell him he’s got to do something to change direction and inner-conversations within the football team and if he doesn’t what has happened the last two years will continue on into the 2021 season.
We have personally seen the above happen, a 180 degree change to turn things around successfully, with a football team, a company, and on an US Navy ship and each time the Current or New Leader/Coach focused on moving the Team or Company or Ship in a new direction that everyone could get behind which became such a focus that it leaves little time for questioning what has happened in the past or is happening in the now until things got better. Also, this is not something you can do by saying, “We are going in a new direction,” but rather this something that is done on such a large scale, like Bryant’s changing to a wishbone offense, that it becomes almost all-encompassing to everyone involved.
9. Les Miles, Kansas – The 0 – 7 Kansas Jayhawks host the 3 – 4 TCU Horned Frogs which is a game that we give KU little chance to win just like we give KU little chance to win their last 2 games against…
At Texas Tech Texas
…and if KU does end the 2020 season at 0 – 10 then that would leave Les Miles records at….
Overall: 3 – 18
Big 12: 1 – 16
…and if that is what the folks at Kansas were expecting when they hired Les Miles then….
Shame On Them for Expecting and Accepting Below Pitiful Mediocrity!
10. Mike Leach, Mississippi State – With the loss to Georgia on Saturday that drops Mike Leach’s record at Mississippi State to….
2 – 5
….and the folks in Starkville fired a coach in Joe Moorhead who in 2 seasons posted records of…
8 – 5 6 – 7
…so of course they see a 2 – 5 record with games still left against…
At Ole Miss Mizzou Auburn
The Georgia Defense is now so porous against Attacking Offenses we were not surprised that the Bulldogs were able to score 24 points on the Dawgs, but can MSU continue scoring in their last 3 games is the question and will have a big say on whether Mike Leach will end up squarely on the Hot Seat going into the 2021 season or if he can begin to turn this ship before it takes on too much H2O that it becomes un-turnable!
It may not be discernable to many but there are some teams playing Excellent Football in 2020 and there are some teams that are Totally Mailing-It-In in 2020 and those in the latter category have their Head Coaches either on or headed to the Hot Seat! As the late Great Andy Grove used to say….
….and thus it’s time for Head Coaches to embrace the turbulence they now find themselves in instead of complaining, whining, bitching, and generally doing lots of crying about how tough they got it since the 15+ Combat Vets at Coaches Hot Seat who did multiple deployments on the oceans of the world Haze Grey and Underway in the US Navy all over the world for 6+ months away from America including Operation Desert Storm in 1991…
Don’t Want To Hear Your Worthless Damn Crybaby Excuses!
Toughen Your Damn Asses Up and Quit Your Damn Crying Your Prima Donna Millionaire Crybabies!
Let’s bring out the Great Johnny Cash to give these Hot Seat Coaches Hell!
1. Derek Mason, Vanderbilt – Vandy has played some decent football in 2020 losing by 5 points to Texas A&M, 7 points to Mississippi State, and 3 points to Kentucky but….
0 – 6 is 0 – 6
…and Vandy has left in 2020 games against…
Florida Tennessee At Georgia At Missouri
That looks like 0 – 10 to us and with Derek Mason’s records now at…
Overall: 27 – 53
SEC: 10 – 44
…we cannot imagine Mason could survive a winless 2020 season pandemic or not but then if we were running Vandy Athletics we been going NUTS long ago about the state of Vandy Football on all levels from Talent to that Beyond Pitiful Stadium the team plays in!
2. Jim Harbaugh, Michigan – In the past 40+ years we have seen lots of college football teams get their asses whipped but we have never seen a team just…
Flat Out Quit and Get Their Manhood Taken Away
….which Wisconsin made and did to Michigan last Saturday in Ann Arbor!
We have some opinions on why Jimmy Harbaugh has Totally Lost the Plot at Michigan which we will keep to ourselves for now, but since Ohio State whipped Blue to end the 2018 season the Michigan Football program has been in a Totally Free-Fall posting records of..
Overall: 10 – 10
Big Ten: 7 – 6
Michigan now at 1 – 3 on the season has games left against…
At Rutgers Penn State Maryland At Ohio State
…and there’s at least a 50 – 50 chance now that Michigan Football Players will…
Totally Damn Quit
..and finish the season with 4 straight losses to finish at 1 – 7 which of course would lead to the end of the Harbaugh era in Ann Arbor which will also probably happen if Blue splits their last 2 games.
Great Luck Jimmy and you better Damn not lose to this Rutgers team which just got beat by…wait for it…Illinois!
3. Kevin Sumlin, Arizona – Arizona had USC beat in their first game of the season and should have beaten the Trojans but again Kevin Sumlin let a win get away and that leaves Sumlin’s records in his 3 rd season at Arizona at…
Overall: 9 – 16
Pac-12: 6 – 13
….and if those records are acceptable at Arizona now when Rich Rodriguez got fired after posting a 7 – 6 record in his last year in Tucson then Arizona Football no longer exists as a Real Entity on the Earth!
4. Les Miles, Kansas – We haven’t a Damn Clue why Kansas hired Les Miles but then we still don’t have a Damn Clue why Kansas hire Charlie Weis and yet Miles in his 2 nd season on the job his records are….
Overall: 3 – 15
Big 12: 1 – 13
…and the 0 – 7 Jayhawks have left in 2020 >
Texas TCU At Texas Tech
Got 0 – 10 in Lawrence?
5. Jeremy Pruitt, Tennessee – Jeremy Pruitt has now coached 31 games at Tennessee and has posted a record of..
15 – 16
…and after 31 games at Tennessee the last head coach of the Vols Butch Jones had posted a record of…
15 – 16
In the next 25 games with the Vols Butch Jones posted a record of….
19 – 6
…before Butch Jones got fired in his 5 th season on the job and if Pruitt begins to fall behind Jones trajectory of Wins and Loses then he will be fired and we cannot imagine the money folks at Tennessee will allow current AD Phil Fulmer to hire the next head coach because the hiring of Pruitt will have been…
A Sub-Butch Jones Failure!
Tennessee is now 2 – 4 on the season and have left to play…
At Auburn At Vandy Florida Texas A&M
….and if the Vols go 1 – 3 in their last 4 games to finish at 3 – 7 then Jeremy Pruitt…
Should Be Fired and Will Be Fired….Right After Phil Fulmer is Fired!
That is if the money folks at Tennessee give 2 Damn Rips about the future success of Tennessee Football!
6. Clay Helton, USC – The USC Trojans barely beating Arizona State at home and Arizona on the road says more about the current state of USC Football and how far the Trojans have fallen under Helton who now barely beats Mediocre Teams which luckily for Helton the Pac-12 is full of these days!
The wobbly 2 – 0 Trojans have left on their 2020 schedule games against…
At Utah Colorado Washington State At UCLA
…with luckily for USC again the Utes with a reduced roster ravaged by Corona Virus which Kyle Whittingham doesn’t seem to have any control of with his football team but such is the Luck of Clay Helton!
If USC can finish at 4 – 2 on the season then Clay Helton will get another year of coaching the Trojans and that’s gotta be Knife to the Gut of the fans of USC Football….but finish at 3 – 3 and Clay Helton is DONE!
7. Justin Fuente, Virginia Tech – Since that 10 – 4 season in his first year at Virginia Tech Head Coach Justin Fuente has posted records of..
Overall: 27 – 20
ACC: 18 – 13
…which is Average Football in Blacksburg and the now 4 – 4 Hokies have games left against…
At Pitt Clemson Virginia
…which could be anything from 3 – 0 to 0 – 3 and therein lies the problem with Fuente’s tenure at Virginia Tech….
No one really knows what the Hell is coming next!
Virginia Tech should beat Pitt and Virginia and lose to Clemson to finish at 6 – 5 which will probably get Fuente another season….as hard as that is to believe for some of us!
Virginia Tech has become an Average Football Program and maybe the folks in Blacksburg just need to accept that FACT and move on down the road!
8. Scott Frost, Nebraska – The way Nebraska reacted after beating a Pitiful Penn State team at home you would have thought the Huskers won their first National Title since Dr. Tom retired but alas…
It was just beating a Pitiful Penn State Team folks!
The 1 – 2 Huskers have left to play in 2020….
Illinois At Iowa At Purdue Minnesota
…and if Nebraska fools around and loses to Illinois at home on Saturday with at Iowa and at Purdue up next Scott Frost could very well be coaching his last season as Head Coach of the Huskers!
Don’t lose to Illinois Scott!
9. Steve Campbell, South Alabama – Steve Campbell was hired to be the Head Coach at South Alabama before the 2018 season replacing Joey Jones who had posted records in 6 seasons with the Jaguars of..
Overall: 52 – 50
Sun Belt: 18 – 29
….and Steve Campbell in his 3 rd year on the job has posted records of…
Overall: 8 – 24
Sun Belt: 5 – 16
Clearly South Alabama has taken a step or two or three backwards under Campbell even as they have moved into a brand new football stadium and we can only wonder how long this will allowed to continue down the current path…not much longer….Right?
10. Dino Babers, Syracuse – Now at 1 – 7 on the season Syracuse hasn’t looked like much of a football team in 2020 with only a win over Georgia Tech on the board and with these games left to be played…
At Louisville NC State At Notre Dame
…there is a very good chance the Orangemen finish at 1 – 10 and that will be nothing short of a….
Complete Freaking Disaster in Dino Babers 5 th season at Syracuse
We will have a lot more to say about the New FBS Head Coaching Hires in January 2020 but so far….
Appalachian State – Shawn Clark – No Clue About
Arkansas – Sam Pittman – The Worst Head Coaching Hire in College Football History…YES…even worse than Charlie Weis Hired by Kansas…in our humble opinion!
Colorado State – Steve Addazio – We would not hire Steve Addazio to Shovel Shit in Eastern Colorado forget about to coach Colorado State because in our opinion Addazio is a Pompous Arrogant Ass Punk and a Sorry Damn Excuse for a Human Being and top of all that…he’s an Average As Hell Coach!
Florida Atlantic – Willie Taggert – Whatever. Makes No Sense To Us but….Whatever.
Missouri – Eli Drinkwitz – Eli can coach the game of football and we expect him to WIN at Missouri…how much he will WIN is up for debate but the guy can coach and he will WIN at Mizzou!
Old Dominion – Ricky Rahne – No Clue About
Ole Miss – Lane Kiffin – Lane Kiffin is a different + better Human Being and a better Football Coach than the guy who was fired on the tarmac at Los Angeles International Airport and we will be interested to see what Lane can do at Ole Miss. Our expectations is that he will average 7 to 8 wins a season over the first 3 seasons which is Pretty Damn Good at Ole Miss. Whether Lane Kiffin can do better than that is really up to Lane Kiffin!
Rutgers – Greg Schiano – We don’t like Greg Schiano and consider him to be a Pompous Arrogant Ass Jerk and we would never hire the guy to coach any football team we were associated with but maybe he can win at Rutgers….maybe not. It’s a tough place to win sitting in the Big Ten East Division and Rutgers should be a better football program than Maryland but the rest of the teams in that division….those teams will be very hard to pass.
South Florida – Jeff Scott – Jeff Scott has been a solid assistant coach but now he’s got to lead a South Florida football program that should be winning 8+ games a season and let’s see what the kid can do.
UNLV – Marcus Arroyo – Really? What a Crazy Ass Hire!
UTSA – Jeff Traylor – No Clue About
Washington – Jimmy Lake – Jimmy Lake has always impressed us as an assistant coach at Washington and we are interested to see what he can do following Chris Petersen who elevated the Huskies to place where they haven’t been since Rick Neuheisel’s days at UW and now it’s up to Jimmy Lake to do that as well. Good Luck to you Jimmy!
Let’s bring out the Great Johnny Cash to give these Hot Seat Coaches Hell!
That’s 4+ losses for the Mighty Texas Longhorns for 10 straight seasons now and 5+ losses in 7 of the last 10 seasons!
What exactly is going on at Texas which has plenty of talent but can’t seem to find a Head Coach that can win on any kind of consistent basis is a mystery to us and the current Head Coach Tom Herman is now sitting on records of >
Overall: 24 – 15
Big 12: 17 – 10
An even worse record is Herman’s W/L against FBS Teams with .500+ records…
10 – 8
This is Texas Football we are talking about here where the coaches should be able to roll the footballs out on the practice fields and the team would win 7 games a year with the players coaching themselves….and yet Herman has only won 7 games in 2 of his 3 seasons at the school!
Now with that 7 – 5 record Tom Herman and the Longhorns get to play Utah in the Alamo Bowl a team that just got whipped and embarrassed in the Pac-12 Title Game against Oregon and who will surely be Royally Pissed-Off when they get to San Antonio and will be looking to obliterate a Texas that looks Very Damn Obliteratable!
7 – 6 in Year 3 for Tom Herman would be nothing short of a Complete Disaster and set-up 2020 to be the season that will determine not only Herman’s future at Texas but his head coaching career Period!
2. Kevin Sumlin, Arizona – It’s not just that Kevin Sumlin is now sitting on records at Arizona of…
Overall: 9 – 15
Pac-12: 6 – 12
…but that the Wildcats under Sumlin really haven’t beat many decent teams at all with a record in 2 seasons against FBS Teams with .500+ records of…
2 – 15
….and that is nothing short of a football program on the brink of sinking into Total Oblivion with now very few people in Tucson that really even care about Arizona Football anymore.
Kevin Sumlin in our opinion has turned Arizona Football into an operation that exists for one reason and that is to serve his Massive Ego and if Arizona Football has to be taken down on the cross of the Great Kevin Sumlin then it will be taking down the AD at the school….Dave Heeke….cheering that taking down of the football program that he is supposed to be supervising…in our humble opinion.
In 2020 Arizona Football will be playing…
Hawaii Portland State At Texas Tech Arizona State Colorado Oregon Stanford USC At Oregon State At UCLA At Utah At Washington
That looks like another sub-500 record to us which will probably lead to Arizona AD Dave Heeke giving Kevin Sumlin an extension because if you are willing to tolerate a record of 2 – 15 against FBS Teams with .500+ records then do you even care about you’re the football program?
No…in our humble opinion.
3. Will Muschamp, South Carolina – It really is something that in your 51st game at a school like South Carolina that you can lose a game on your home field against your cross-state rival by…
…and keep your job but that is what we have with Will Muschamp at South Carolina who has posted records at the school of…
Overall: 26 – 25
SEC: 15 – 17
….which isn’t very inspiring to us so how in the Hell could it be to anyone else in or around South Carolina and just take a look at what the Gamecocks are facing in 2020 >
Coastal Carolina East Carolina Missouri At Kentucky At Florida Tennessee Texas A&M At Vanderbilt Georgia At LSU Wofford At Clemson
We count at least 6 losses and only 2 for-sure wins and the 4 remaining games who knows and that’s the problem for Will Muschamp at South Carolina as he heads into his 5th at USC….
No one knows what is coming and that by itself is a Complete Disaster for the near and long-term future of South Carolina Football!
Oh….Will Muschamp just hired just fired Colorado State head coach Mike Bobo to be the new offensive coordinator at South Carolina and Bobo’s offense in 2019 finished at…wait for it…
The Bells of Doom just Keep On Ringing at South Carolina and what we need to do is to get someone to quit letting a Damn Fool to pull the ropes in Columbia! Yall folks gonna need to fire the bell ringer before any of this gets better!
4. Mark Dantonio, Michigan State – As they say in the game of golf as it relates to how good of a player you are…
“You are what you shoot!”
…and over the past 4 seasons Mark Dantonio hasn’t been much at all at Michigan State >
Overall: 26 – 24
Big Ten: 17 – 19
This is Michigan State Football we are talking about here where Bozo the Clown could win 7 games a year and over the past 4 seasons Dantonio has averaged….
6.5 Wins A Season
….and the real problem at Michigan State University isn’t so much Dantonio Totally Gutting Spartans Football on the back of his Massive Ego but that the Athletic Director and President at MSU are Gutless Cowards who don’t really care that Dantonio is Gutting Spartans Football and why would they since this is an institution that let Pure Damn Evil go on at their school for years with no one say a word so what’s allowing someone to GUT a football program?
Not really all that much by comparison!
Looking ahead to the 2020 Michigan State Football Schedule….
Northwestern At BYU Toledo Miami (FL) At Iowa Michigan Ohio State At Indiana Minnesota At Penn State Rutgers At Maryland
…that looks like another 7 win or worse season to us so the Bozo the Clown Football will continue in East Lansing for another season it seems and we will be right back here in the same spot a year from today with the Gutless Cowards still running things and accepting…
Total Damn Average and Worse Football!
5. Derek Mason, Vanderbilt – We are talking about Vanderbilt when talking about Derek Mason which needs an Extraordinary Head Coach to post .500+ records every season…it can certainly be done…with an Extraordinary Head Coach but even a Good Head Coach can get Vandy to 6 wins in his 6th season on the job and yet Vandy in Mason’s 6th season on the job went…
3 – 9
That’s the problem at Vanderbilt…not so much that they are willing to accept Average Football with Mason’s records now at…
Overall: 27 – 47
SEC: 10 – 38
…but that they are willing to accept Way Damn Below Average Football in Mason’s 6th year on the job when the team should be getting…
Better Not Worse!
As anyone with a 2+ IQ we expect someone as they work in a job to get better at that job and when a coach has a football program going backwards as is the case with Mason at Vanderbilt right now you can either let it keep going backwards….Vandy’s choice…or go find someone who can start moving the thing FORWARD…not Vandy’s choice.
Be Happy Vandy Football Fans…Vanderbilt is choosing Going Backwards and that’s all you really need to know!
6. Scott Frost, Nebraska – To really put into perspective what a Total Damn Disaster Scott Frost’s first two seasons at Nebraska have been just look at the records of past Nebraska Head Football Coaches after two seasons going back to Tom Osborne >
Tom Osborne = 18 – 5 – 1 Frank Solich = 21 – 5 Bill Callahan = 13 – 10 Bo Pelini = 19 – 8 Mike Riley = 15 – 11
Scott Frost = 9 – 15
Really now….does anyone doubt that if Scott Frost’s name was Willie Taggart he would have already had his ass run out of Lincoln?
Didn’t think so and Nebraska AD Bill Moos can say all he wants about “staying the course” with Scott Frost but reality is Frost will coaching for his job in 2020 because if he cannot get it done in 3 full seasons then there’s no point to any of this and with that in mind let’s look at the Huskers 2020 schedule >
Purdue Central Michigan South Dakota State Cincinnati At Northwestern Illinois At Rutgers At Ohio State Penn State At Iowa At Wisconsin Minnesota
Barring a Massive Improvement by Nebraska between now and the 2020 season we see…
No Damn Way the Huskers get to 6 wins in 2020 and if they don’t the Scott Frost era will be OVER in Lincoln…and more than likely the Bill Moos era as well!
7. Randy Edsall, Connecticut – Randy Edsall has now been 3 seasons at UConn, the school he left in the middle of the night without saying goodbye to his players when taking the Maryland job in 2015, and in those 3 seasons Edsall has posted records of….
Overall: 6 – 30
AAC: 2 – 22
….which includes ZERO AAC Conference Wins the last 2 seasons and Edsall still has a job at UConn?
Anyone that can explain the above and mainly that Randy Edsall is still employed at UConn will be doing the Damn Impossible!
8. Manny Diaz, Miami – Manny Diaz took over a pretty decent Miami Football program from Mark Richt and promptly went…
6 – 6
4 – 4
…against FBS Teams with .500+ Records and this is Miami Football we are talking about here that finished the season with losses to….
Florida International – 6 – 6 record Duke – 5 – 7 record
…and the program reeling and headed to the Independence Bowl to play a La. Tech football team which will whip Miami’s ass if the Hurricanes are not prepared to play the bowl game!
Looking at the 2020 Miami schedule…
Temple Wagner UAB At Michigan State At Georgia Tech Duke Florida State North Carolina Pitt At Virginia At Virginia At Wake Forest
….in our opinion the Canes will have a tough time just getting to 6 wins in 2020 and Manny Diaz will be in the same spot a year from now that he is in today = Roaring Hot Seat!
9. Dana Holgorsen, Houston – We cannot imagine that the folks at Houston who just fired a coach in Major Applewhite who posted records of…
2017 = 7 – 5 2018 = 8 – 5
….and hired a coach in Dana Holgorsen who just posted in his first year on the job of…
4 – 8
…can be very happy but then things been going South for several years at Houston so maybe Holgo imploding in Year 1 wasn’t a surprise to the folks in H-Town!
Oh…Holgorsen’s record in 2019 against FBS Teams with .500 records was….
0 – 8
Yes…you got that right….Houston got it’s 4 wins against….
Prairie View A&M – FCS North Texas – 4 – 8 record UConn – 2 – 10 record Tulsa – 4 – 8 record
….so as bad as you think the 2019 season was for Dana Holgorsen and Houston…it was actually Much Damn Worse!
Looking at the 2020 Houston Football schedule….
Rice At Washington State North Texas At BYU At Cincinnati Tulane Tulsa UCF At Memphis At Navy At MSU USF
….that looks like it’s going to be Very Tough for Houston to get 6 wins in 2020 and will that acceptable at a place where University of Houston President Renu Khator once said….
“We fire coaches that don’t win 10 games!”
If so why is Dana Holgorsen still employed at the University of Houston Prez?
10. Chip Kelly, UCLA – Chip Kelly has now coached 2 seasons at UCLA and has posted records of….
2018 = 3 – 9 2019 = 4 – 8
Overall: 7 – 17
Pac-12: 7 – 11
…which certainly isn’t optimum but even worse is Kelly’s record against FBS Teams with .500+ records over two seasons….
Tua’s College Career Ending Injury at Alabama – Don’t Believe Someone Just Because They Are Wearing A White Coat!
There’s a Helluva Lot we could write about Tua’s college career ending hip injury at Alabama, but it is the opinion of the Doctors who are members of Coaches Hot Seat that the surgery for a high ankle sprain that Tua had was Totally Damn Unnecessary and that Tua should have just rested his ankle for a couple of weeks and come back and played when healthy enough to play again!
We have visited the Great State of Alabama dozens of times in the 13 seasons that Coaches Hot Seat has existed and dozens of times before that going back to the early 1980s and there is a serious problem in Alabama that far Damn too many people will do something just because a Doctor tells them to do something. It is our opinion that there is Way Damn Too Much orthopedic surgery going on in the state of Alabama, across the Southern United States, and with University of Alabama athletes and it is far past time for Nick Saban, AD Greg Byrne, parents of Alabama athletes, and others around Alabama to quit always deferring to a surgeon just because he or she recommends surgery!
We have some news for you folks…
Surgeons Love To Do Surgery because…they make a Helluva Lot of $$$….doing Damn surgery!
We will go further than that…
Surgeons will often do Total Damn Horseshit Surgeries and it is our opinion that the high ankle sprain surgery that Tua got by the Doctors who work for the University of Alabama Football team was…
Total Damn Horseshit!
That’s our opinion as American Citizens and as former athletes because a high ankle sprain, which many of us had in high school and college, is something that needs to be rested for 2 to 3 weeks. YES…Tua would have been out for a couple of weeks resting that ankle but instead he had surgery done and then was rushed back for the LSU game…in our opinion…which was game he was obviously limping in even in the first half and which led to him being a lot less mobile quarterback…and wait for it…a lot less mobile quarterback will have a hard time getting away from defenders just like Tua wasn’t able to do against Mississippi State when he took the hit that ended his college career!
Damn Idiocy goes like this….
Total Horseshit High Ankle Sprain Surgery Tua Is Not Totally Healthy For LSU Game and Plays Limping Throughout Tua Is Not Totally Healthy for Mississippi State Game and Plays and Is Not That Mobile Tua Gets College Career Ending Hit Because His Ass….Is Not As Mobile As He Should Be Because…Wait For It….His Ass Should Have NEVER Has the High Ankle Sprain Surgery!
Memo to Nick Saban: Just because a Doctor or Surgeon says that he or she should do “X” for an Alabama player does not mean you should accept that advice or that the player should take that advice, and it would be good policy for You and the Player + His Family to get 2 or even 3 other opinions on the issue and if you had done that with Tua on both his high ankle sprain surgeries there’s a very Damn good chance…
Neither Surgery Would Have Happened!
Here’s the problem with far too many people in Alabama and across America >
Just because someone in white coat who thinks his or her Precious Ass is God-All-Damn-Knowing Everything because they went to medical school doesn’t mean you do something just because they told you to do something and if Nick Saban had…
Worked One Damn Day in the Real World
…his ass would know this by now but since Nick Saban has…
Not Worked One Damn Day in the Real World In His Entire Damn Life
…he actually believes Damn Everything a doctor tell him!
Sorry Nick…Doctors and Surgeons are not only Incompetent at Times they only make $$$….doing Things like Surgeries…not just for athletes at Alabama but because they can tell other patients and the family of patients…
“We did the Tua surgery!”
Think Nick Saban….it’s time for you to THINK Son!
Surgeons make Millions of Dollars….wait for it….Doing Damn Surgery….and just because some Surgeon Hack has made Tens of Millions of Dollars doing surgery and has big houses in Birmingham and on the Gulf Coast does NOT mean that you have to believe his Worthless Hack Ass or the what his “mentees” believe should be done Saban and when your ass finally understands that you will for the first time in your life actually begin…
Looking out for your players instead of always taking the advice of people that make all that money doing things…such as unnecessary surgeries…that happens in our opinion…
Thousands of Times in the State of Alabama Every Damn Year!
Get A Damn Clue Nick Saban and next time you have player that is not 100% healthy….
Don’t Play His Ass in a game that you could have won playing Captain Kangaroo at Quarterback!
This is on YOU Nick Saban for blindly believed Hack Surgeons who make Millions of Dollars doing surgery and or playing Tua against Mississippi State when he should NOT have even been dressed for the game!
Needless to say ALL of the above are our opinions…they are educated opinions…but they are our opinions!
Let’s bring out the Late Great Johnny Cash to give these Hot Seat Coaches Hell!
1. Mark Dantonio, Michigan State – One of the most important things for people running anything from a company to an athletic department are troubling trends and Mark Dantonio is on one Helluva troubling trend at Michigan State with a record in Big Ten Conference play the last four seasons of…
15 – 19
…and even worse…
6+ losses in 3 of the last 4 seasons!
6+ losses in 3 of the last 4 seasons is just flat-out Frightening to anyone that cares about Michigan State football and when one looks ahead to 2020 the Spartans have…
At BYU Toledo Miami
….in addition to 9 Big Ten Conference games and does anyone think 2020 is going to be better than 2019 when it seems Mark Dantonio is unable to make the necessary changes to keep up with modern game of football?
Not in our opinion and Michigan State now at 4 – 6 on the season have left to play…
At Rutgers Maryland
…which are 2 of the worst 10 teams in FBS Football in 2019 and if Spartans lose either game one would have to think that Dantonio is done in East Lansing.
2. Scott Frost, Nebraska – Scott Frost sitting on records in his second season at Nebraska of…
Overall: 8 – 14
Big Ten: 5 – 11
….and has been nothing short of a Total Disaster with no end in sight because the Huskers play is often unorganized, undisciplined…un-coached even at times…and now at 4 – 6 on the season Nebraska has left…
At Maryland Iowa
This 2019 Maryland team is one of the worst Power 5 Conference School Teams we have seen play in recent memory and what if….YES…what if Nebraska went to College Park and….GASP….lost to Maryland?
If Nebraska loses to Maryland then Scott Frost may indeed be done because it would be a loss that Nebraska Football may never recover from under Frost or any other coach in the foreseeable future which is roughly 10 years in our mind so we would REALLY recommend Scott Frost not lose to this game to the Terps!
Oh….after 22 games as the Head Football Coach at Nebraska >
Scott Frost = 8 – 14
Mike Riley = 13 – 9
You think Scott Frost is in a Helluva Tough Spot with very few ways to get out of this corner?
You would be right!
Don’t lose to Maryland Scott!
3. Will Muschamp, South Carolina – The folks in Columbia, South Carolina can remain in all the Denial of Reality mode they want but there’s no getting around the FACT that Will Muschamp in his FOURTH season as the Head Football Coach at South Carolina is sitting on a record of 4 – 7 with only a game left against…
…and without a Miracle From the Heavens that…
4 – 8
….record in Boom’s FOURTH season at South Carolina and if that’s acceptable to the folks in Columbia then More The Damn Power to Their Asses but please don’t tell us you were raised by Real Americans forget about Real Southerners who actually value Winning!
Oh…Will Muschamp’s records now in FOUR seasons at South Carolina >
Overall: 26 – 24
SEC: 15 – 17
Interesting are Will Muschamp’s records in FOUR seasons at Florida >
Overall: 28 – 21
SEC: 17 – 15
Hmmmm….anyone noticing a trend here?
4. Joe Moorhead, Mississippi State – We are not quite sure what the folks at Mississippi State thought Joe Moorhead would do in Starkville record wise but we are guessing it’s not this with 2 games left in his 2nd season on the job >
Overall: 12 – 11
SEC: 6 – 9
The 4 – 6 Bulldogs are playing Uber-Cupcake Abilene Christian on November 23 and finish the season hosting Ole Miss in the Egg Bowl and will it take Moorhead beating Mississippi to hang onto his job?
Maybe so because imagine this scenario for a moment if Mississippi State did lose the Egg Bowl >
Moorhead would be sitting on a 5 – 7 record in his 2nd season right after a loss to Ole Miss which is sitting on record of….wait for it…4 – 7 right now!
There just ain’t no way to defend Joe Moorhead going 5 – 7 in his 2nd season on the job AND losing the Egg Bowl AND not going to a bowl game in this age of even the Damn Sorry and Average As Hell go to bowl games!
5. Barry Odom, Missouri – Barry Odom is working on his 4th season as the Head Coach at Missouri and he is sitting on records of…
Overall: 24 – 24
SEC: 12 – 18
…which Ain’t That Good and with Mizzou now at 5 – 5 with games left against…
Tennessee At Arkansas
….if Odom lost these last two games we have to think that would be the end of the Odom era at Missouri…..right?
6. Derek Mason, Vanderbilt – Derek Mason is in his 6th season at Vanderbilt and has records on the board of…
Overall: 26 – 46
SEC: 10 – 37
…and that is 10 SEC Conference wins in 6 season….Not So Damn Good!
Even worse is Mason’s record of 2 – 8 in his 6th season with games still left against…
East Tennessee State At Tennessee
…which looks like 3 – 9 to us which will be….
The same record Derek Mason posted in his first season at Vanderbilt in 2014!
4 – 8 to 4 – 8 = No Damn Improvement At All!
7. Tom Herman, Texas – We had high expectations for Tom Herman at Texas but heading towards the end of Year 3 Herman is sitting on records of…
Overall: 23 – 14
Big 12: 16 – 9
…..and we just didn’t see Herman with 4 losses on the board this season and thought at most the Longhorns have 2 losses heading into the last 2 games of the season…
At Baylor Texas Tech
Baylor is going to be really motivated to win this game against Texas and Texas Tech has been in almost every game they have played this season so there’s a chance that a Terribly Disappointing season could turn into a Total Disaster of a Season for Tom Herman and already our 2 Texas-alum buddies who live in the Austin area are telling us…
“Herman is treading in some very dangerous waters.”
We recommend you find a way to beat Baylor and Texas Tech Tom or your will be coaching for your job and head coaching career in 2020 at Texas!
8. Kevin Sumlin, Arizona – After Kevin Sumlin got fired at Texas A&M putting up Pretty Average Numbers in College Station with a boatload of money given to him on the way out the door there’s just no way we would have hired him at a place like Arizona where you need Head Coach that is…
Fired-Up and Will Fight Your Ass In Every Damn Game
….because with all that money will Sumlin be…
Fired-Up and Will Fight Your Ass In Every Damn Game?
Not in our opinion and thus in Sumlin’s 2nd year at Arizona he is now sitting on records of…
Overall: 9 – 13
Pac-12: 6 – 10
….with the 4 – 6 Wildcats still having games to play against…
Utah At Arizona State
That looks like a 4 – 8 record to us and looking to 2020 is there anyone in Tucson that thinks that next season will be any better under Kevin Sumlin?
The 2020 Arizona Football schedule….
Hawaii Portland State At Texas Tech Colorado Oregon Stanford USC At Oregon State At UCLA At Utah At Washington At Arizona State
We would be STUNNED if Arizona won even 6 games in 2020…in our humble opinion!
9. Dana Holgorsen, Houston – When one considers that Dana Holgorsen is sitting on a record of…
3 – 7
….in his first year at Houston let’s consider for a moment that the Powers That Be at the University of Houston including Tilman Fertitta who has his hands in everything when it comes to Houston Football and Basketball let’s look at the records of the last Houston Head Football Coach Major Applewhite who got his ass run out of Houston by those Powers That Be >
2017: 7 – 5 2018: 8 – 5
Overall: 15 – 11
AAC: 10 – 6
Now if the above records were not good enough to keep your rear-end employed at Houston then what exactly is…
3 – 7
…doing for your ass?
Anyone know where Tilman Fertitta is at and what he thinks about Holgo sitting on a record of 3 – 7 with still games to played against…
At Tulsa Navy?
Oh…no one has seen Get Us Some More Rolls Boy?
Didn’t think so but then when things going good Get Us Some Rolls Boy ass is plastered Anywhere and Everywhere in the media and beyond but his ass is nowhere to be seen now which is…
No Damn Surprise to anyone with 2+ IQ!
10. Gus Malzahn, Auburn – The word on the street on The Plains before the 2019 season started was that if Gus Malzahn lost the 4 games to…
LSU Florida Georgia Alabama
…he would be done at Auburn and with losses to those first three teams on the board it really is now only a win over Alabama that can stop from the Gus Malzahn era from being brought to an end so with games left against..
…both at Jordan-Hare Stadium what is the appropriate Game Theory approach for Gus Malzahn as he head towards the critical game against Bama?
If we were Gus Malzahn we probably would not take the Arkansas job even if offered but rather just let Auburn fire him and then see what other jobs might be open between now and the end of the year and if one of those jobs looked like a place you can win at….then maybe take it….but if not we would probably just take the $25 or so million that Auburn owes us and go relax and do some traveling the world for a year and then come back to coaching at the end of 2020 Relaxed, Refreshed, and Ready To Go!
To our amazement Willie Taggart got the Oregon job which made no Damn sense to anyone at Coaches Hot Seat in December 2016 and makes no Damn sense to anyone here today because it was such a “strange” fit which brings us to Florida State hiring Willie Taggart after he had only been at Oregon for one year.
There’s a good case to be made that if Taggart had just stayed at South Florida for another season and had another 9+ win year he would have been an obvious choice for Florida State, and maybe things would have been different than they were the last two seasons at FSU which in our opinion from what we have been told by FSU-alum friends that live in the State of Florida has been…
Nothing Short of a Complete Disaster from Day One under Taggart
What was most alarming to us watching Florida State from afar and not seeing things that our friends in Florida were seeing and telling us from first-hand observations was the way that FSU was playing under Taggart which was often…
….and there really was no way for Florida State to allow that to continue because the school could hire almost any Random FSU Fan off the street and for God’s Sake they are going to have the Florida State team fired up to play Miami!
Geez…if a Florida State team is NOT fired-up to play Miami that is team with a Head Coach that MUST be fired and thus the FSU President was right in saying that Florida State University had…
….but to fire Willie Taggart….and rightfully fired Willie was.
Let’s bring out the Late Great Johnny Cash to show these Hot Seat Coaches what this whole thing is all about!
Steve Sarksian and Lane Kiffin also made similar mistakes not completely understanding what goes into being the Head Football Coach at a place like USC and if there is one thing that USC must do with its next Head Coach is make sure they simply >
Know What The Hell They Are Doing!
We could write a book on the incredible number of things that coaches like Nick Saban at Alabama and Urban Meyer when he was at Ohio State would make sure are being covered and being taken care of which when you boil it down is just a long list of Must Do Items that is the basis for anyone running any organization on Earth successfully. At places like Alabama, Ohio State, and USC in order to be successful and live up to the expectations of the fan bases at those schools, if you are not taking care of all the Big Things + Tiny Details then eventually it will catch-up to you and what all this basically comes down to is this quote from the Late Great Paul “Bear” Bryant >
“If you want to coach you have three rules to follow to win. One, surround yourself with people who can’t live without football. I’ve had a lot of them. Two, be able to recognize winners. They come in all forms. And, three, have a plan for everything. A plan for practice, a plan for the game. A plan for being ahead, and a plan for being behind 20-0 at half, with your quarterback hurt and the phones dead, with it raining cats and dogs and no rain gear because the equipment man left it at home.”
Clay Helton certainly has worked hard and done what he thinks is best for USC to win football games but in the end >
It’s the many Big Things and Tiny Details that Clay Helton didn’t take care of that will be his undoing and what Helluva Lesson Helton’s time at USC is for coaches and Helton himself who can certainly learn from his mistakes and get another head coaching job in the future, and that is the main reason why Helton needs to keep working hard and try like Hell to get his USC team to win these last 3 games against…
At Arizona State At California UCLA
On a related note to what is written above we have a member of Coaches Hot Seat who played football at Alabama for Paul “Bear” Bryant in the 1970s and in the Spring Term after his senior and last season as a player at Alabama he went by Coach Bryant’s office to get some advice on a career issue. In telling this story the former Alabama player relates an amazing scene but one thing he says he will always remember is when he was standing by Coach Bryant’s desk just before he left he noticed Bryant had a 8/12 x 11 notepad that had a long list of things that Bryant was clearly working on with “checks” by the things that had been completed. Coach Bryant was working off a To Do List just like all of us do that are running things and in that To Do List is what made Alabama Football Get-Up-And-Go under Bear and makes it goes under Nick Saban and in the end it really is about…
“Taking Care of the Little Things…and a Little Something Extra!”
Good Luck to you Clay!
2. Chad Morris, Arkansas – We will forever wonder how someone could like Chad Morris have a career win/loss record as a Head Coach of…
14 – 22
…in 3 seasons at SMU get a Head Coaching job at an SEC school like Arkansas and not surprising to us or anyone else with a 2+ IQ Morris has struggled at Arkansas because…
Arkansas is a Helluva Lot Tougher Job than SMU!
In two seasons at Arkansas Chad Morris has now with the loss to Mississippi State posted records of…
Overall: 4 – 17
SEC: 0 – 14
….and to say that is BAD and that Arkansas looked no better in Morris 21st game at the school than they looked in his 1st game coaching Arkansas is an understatement for the ages…and that’s a Helluva Problem for the folks making the hiring and firing decisions in Fayetteville….a Helluva Big Problem!
Now at 2 – 7 on the season Arkansas has left in 2019 games against…
Western Kentucky At LSU Missouri
….and if Arkansas plays like they did against Mississippi State the rest of the year the Hogs will not win another game!
If Arkansas does fire Chad Morris we would recommend ONE thing to the folks in Fayetteville >
Hire A Football Coach with a WINNING RECORD!
Is that simple enough? Good!
3. Mike Bloomgren, Rice – Mike Bloomgren has been the Head Coach at Rice for 2 seasons and he has posted records of…
Overall: 2 – 20 (.091%)
CUSA: 1 – 12 (.077%)
….and he replaced David Bailiff at Rice who posted records over 11 seasons of..
Overall: 57 – 80 (.416%)
CUSA: 40 – 48 (.455%)
….and the idea is that when you fire a Head Coach you should hire a New Head Coach that does better than the Fired Head Coach and that’s something that folks at Rice University don’t seem to understand which also seems to be the problem at lost of FBS schools these days!
4. Scott Frost, Nebraska – When Mike Riley was still the Head Coach at Nebraska a buddy of ours who played for Frank Solich at Nebraska told us over lunch in Omaha that >
“They have forgotten how to win at Nebraska and it’s not going to be easy to turn that place around.”
Watching Nebraska play in 2019 it’s become our opinion that Scott Frost badly misunderstood what he was actually taking over at Nebraska and that Frost believed that through better coaching, conditioning program, and other things that Frost did at UCF and saw done at Oregon that the Huskers would by now have Nebraska back to winning football games.
After a loss to a really bad Purdue team on Saturday what has become clear to us is that the problems at Nebraska are primarily….
A Lack of Leadership and Motivational Issues
…and that Frost’s particular brand of coaching which isn’t really focused on Leadership and Motivation is just making things worse in Lincoln or at best just treading water. It’s also now our opinion that either Scott Frost will change his approach from…
“We are going to show everyone in America how tough Nebraska really is.”
….to Leading and Motivating the Nebraska Football Program or nothing is going to change for the better and a year from now Scott Frost will be well on his way to being fired at Nebraska.
Reality is Tom Osborne, Barry Switzer, Don James, Paul Bryant, Bud Wilkinson, Darrell Royal…name whatever great coach you can think of from the past…would have to change their coaching style to coach Today’s Players or they would be Failing Totally like Scott Frost is now Failing at Nebraska and either Frost will realize that soon or he is headed for the same ending the Bill Callahan, Bo Pelini, and Mike Riley found at Nebraska which is getting fired and told to pack-up your things…because you are DONE!
Mainly the problem right now at Nebraska is…
It’s Miserable As Hell to play football for the University of Nebraska Football Team precisely because the Head Coach is miserable as Hell and either Frost will get these kids Excited about playing football and having Fun playing football again….like the players were at UCF under Frost….or it’s Danger Ahead Scott Frost!
Scott Frost’s records at Nebraska are now….
Overall: 8 – 13
Big Ten: 5 – 10
…and the Huskers have left on their 2019 schedule games against…
Wisconsin At Maryland Iowa
Will Nebraska win another game in 2019?
Can this Huskers team even beat a really bad Maryland team on the road?
What will be the situation at Nebraska if the Huskers finish at….
5 – 7
4 – 8
….heading into the 2020 season?
It will nothing short of a Complete Freaking Disaster with Scott Frost probably panicking and overreacting in an even worse way to what he sees as some kind of “weakness” with the Nebraska football team and players when in reality it’s…
A Fundamental Misunderstanding of The Problem with Nebraska Football!
5. Joe Moorhead, Mississippi State – An untold story about the 2019 college football season is how many SEC teams are Average or Sub-Average compared to years past and look no further than the game between Mississippi State and Arkansas this past Saturday which saw two teams that can barely bust a grape facing off making one of the teams look like a decent football team in the Bulldogs when in reality…
Both the Bulldogs and Razorback are playing Sub-Average Football in 2019!
In two seasons at Mississippi State Head Coach Joe Moorhead now has records on the board of…
Overall: 12 – 10
SEC: 6 – 8
…and the 4 – 5 Bulldogs still have to play in 2019 games against…
Alabama Abilene Christian Ole Miss
No way MSU beats Alabama and they will surely beat Abilene Christian so guess what Mississippi State Football has come down to in Joe Moorhead’s second season in Starkville >
You gotta beat Ole Miss in the Egg Bowl to go to a bowl game!
Oh…in 9 seasons at Mississippi State and in his last 8 seasons Dan Mullen posted a .500+ record and took the Bulldogs to a bowl game…
Every. Damn. Season.
Our Expectations for Mississippi State Football are not unreasonably high…
7 or so wins a year will usually keep the Head Coach off the Hot Seat but that 2018 Bulldogs football team was LOADED and Moorhead only won 8 games and now in his second season MSU is sitting on a record of 4 – 5 and we cannot help but wonder >
Where in the Hell is this going because where it’s going now is….NOT GOOD!
6. Barry Odom, Missouri – Trying to figure out what is going on Missouri is something for Sherlock Holmes because please now…
How do you go from losing to Wyoming to reeling off 5 straight wins over West Virginia, SE Missouri State, South Carolina, Troy, and Ole Miss…not exactly a killer’s row of course….to losing to Vanderbilt and Kentucky…not killer teams either to land on a record of…
5 – 3
…with games left against…
At Georgia Florida Tennessee At Arkansas
We don’t know but we do know that Missouri has played only ONE team in 2019 with a record above .500…
…and they lost to the Cowboys and now they get to play….
2 teams with .500+ records = Georgia and Florida
2 teams with sub. 500 records = Tennessee and Arkansas
…and we recommend Barry Odom find a way to win at least 2 of his remaining 4 games if he wants to get his ass off the Hot Seat!
7. Pat Fitzgerald, Northwestern – Saying that there are Pompous Arrogant Ass Head Coaches on the FBS level in college football is like saying the Sun comes up in the East, but truly someone who in our opinion believes that his Precious Ass not only invented the game of football but also that he is God on Earth and spun-up the Moon, Stars, and Sun and everything else that we Pitiful Peons can see in the sky at night is truly…
Northwestern Head Coach Pat Fitzgerald
…who is in our opinion one of the Top 10 Most Pompous Arrogant Ass Human Beings now alive on the planet….which has 7.53 Billion Folks on it just for facts sake!
Pat has done a nice job at Northwestern and even won the Big Ten Western Division in 2018 going 19 – 8 in the last two seasons coming into 2019 so mainly we have Pat Fitzgerald on the Hot Seat because…
Northwestern is now 1 – 7 on the season
Pat Fitzgerald is one of the Most Pompous Arrogant Asses on the Earth and we believe that when Pompous Arrogant Asses FAIL it makes the world a better place and someone that doesn’t go around acting like a Total Ass all the time gets their wings!
Northwestern at 1 – 7 has games in 2019 left against…
Purdue UMass Minnesota At Illinois
…and since we could get together a Powder Puff team from Sonoma State University that could whip Purdue and UMass the Wildcats got a chance to win a couple of games in the next two weeks but can Northwestern beat Minnesota and/or Illinois?
Nope….not in our humble opinion!
On a related note a bunch of us at Coaches Hot Seat got to see Northwestern play at Stanford to open the season and our only comment on that game which saw the Wildcats score 7 points is that…
We have seen Pee Wee Football Teams with more sophisticated, organized, and efficient offenses than the Northwestern offense that we saw play on The Farm on August 31!
Here’s to Northwestern losing their last 4 games and Pat Fitzgerald being elevated to the #1 Hot Seat so he can be there all offseason!
8. Dana Holgorsen, Houston – We are not quite sure what big Houston booster Tilman Fertita thought he was getting with Dana Holgorsen as the head coach of the Houston football program but we are betting it wasn’t a record of…
3 – 6
…9 games into Dana’s first season on the job with games still left against…
Memphis At Tulsa Navy
With those games left there’s a very good chance that Houston will not go to a bowl game in 2019 and that would be a significant downgrade for the Cougars football program which has only missed a bowl game in…
2 of the last 15 seasons
…and if we remember right everyone was told that…
Dana Holgorsen was significant upgrade on the last Houston Head Coach Major Applewhite who in 2 seasons on the job…
Took Houston to 2 Bowl Games
…posting 7 – 5 and 8 – 5 records!
Dana Holgorsen is a decent football coach but he’s also a Pompous Arrogant Ass Jerk and if he fails at Houston it will not matter to us at all but we are betting it will matter to Tilman Fertita who next time around should hire someone….
Can Coach the Game of Football and Isn’t a Pompous Arrogant Ass Jerk!
9. Mark Dantonio, Michigan State – The Spartans had a bye in Week 10 as they sit on a record of 4 – 4 with games left against…
Illinois At Michigan At Rutgers Maryland
…and a win in this Illinois game would be BIG since Rutgers and Maryland are Total Dumpster Fires and probable wins for Michigan State and if there is something that Mark Dantonio needs it is it more than….
6 Wins in 2019
….because just 6 Wins when 5 of those wins would be over FBS teams with sub .500 records is not something that would inspire confidence among fans of Michigan State football nor anyone else with a Lick of Common Sense!
10. Kevin Sumlin, Arizona – We are not quite sure how Kevin Sumlin got Arizona to a point where in his 21st game at the school that they would lose at home to a 4 – 4 Oregon State team by the score of…
56 – 38
….which was Arizona’s 4th straight loss to drop the team to 4 – 5 on the season with games left against…
At Oregon Utah At Arizona State
Got it looks like Arizona is going to finish at 4 – 8 in 2019 after going 5 – 7 in Sumlin’s first year on the job in Tucson?
Yep….and that’s a Helluva Problem for the folks at Arizona because if a program is getting worse in Year 2 guess what happens 90% of the time to football programs in Year 3 for a Head Coach in the 12 years that Coaches Hot Seat has been around starting with the 2007 college football season >
They are no better or get worse in Year 3!
If Arizona does lose its last 3 games that will leave Sumlin’s records in 3 seasons on the job at….
Overall: 9 – 15
Pac-12: 6 – 12
…and more importantly in the metric we rely on most to decide if a coach is on the Hot Seat or not Kevin Sumlin’s record against FBS teams with .500+ records is…
1. Joe Moorhead, Mississippi State – They say that life comes at you fast and boy things are sure coming fast for Mississippi State head coach Joe Moorhead who in his second season in Starkville is now sitting on records of…
Overall: 11 – 10
SEC: 5 – 8
…after the loss to Texas A&M on Saturday and 3 – 5 on the 2019 season which adds up to >
The Hottest Seat in College Football!
With these games left on the schedule…
At Arkansas = #1 Hot Seat Coach vs. #2 Hot Seat Coach Matchup! Alabama Abilene Christian Ole Miss
…could Moorhead possibly survive not taking the Bulldogs to a bowl game in Year 2 after taking over what everyone agrees was a Top 30ish football program just a year ago?
Not in our opinion but then in our opinion Moorhead was an Incredibly Risky Hire in a spot where the folks at Mississippi State DID NOT have to make an Incredibly Risky Hire!
Bill Clark, UAB Jeremy Pruitt, Alabama DC Brent Venables, Clemson DC Joe Moorhead, Penn State OC Neal Brown, Troy Mike Bobo, Colorado State Jason Candle, Toledo Ryan Day, Ohio State OC Chad Morris, SMU
Now if we had been the Mississippi State AD in 2017 we would have had on our list of potential head coaches from above list these coaches…
Bill Clark, UAB Neal Brown, Troy
….along with 3 to 5 other FBS and FCS Head Coaches and not interviewed any of the others because….
We Would Not Have Made An > Incredibly Risky Hire for the Mississippi State job because…
There was No Damn Need To!
Why was Joe Moorhead even on the interview list at Mississippi State considering where the job is located at?
We don’t have a Damn Clue!
One thing we do know…Joe Moorhead better not lose to Arkansas this coming Saturday which…wait for it…has not won even ONE SEC Conference game under Chad Morris!
Speaking of Chad Morris!
2. Chad Morris, Arkansas – In Chad Morris’ 20th game as the Head Coach at Arkansas his football team got beat 48 – 7 by Alabama in a game that could have been 70 – Zilch if Saban had wanted it to be and that now leaves Morris’ records in Fayetteville at >
Overall: 4 – 16
SEC: 0 – 13
Much like Joe Moorhead at Mississippi State we really don’t have a Damn Clue why Chad Morris was even interviewed at Arkansas which is an SEC Conference Head Coaching Job in the SEC Western Division and thus needs one Helluva Great Football Coach to lead it if it’s going to be competitive and what were Morris’ records in 3 seasons at SMU?
Overall: 14 – 22
AAC: 8 – 16
Please now…how in the Hell do you get an interview to be Head Football Coach at the University of Arkansas when you have an overall record of 14 – 22 at your current school?
Because you coached Deshaun Watson at Clemson?
A Drunken Stumblebum who showed up to practice once a week could have coached Deshaun Watson at Clemson because the kid as we can all see now with his play at the Texans…doesn’t need stinking coaches to be GREAT since he has Mediocre As Hell Coaches in Houston!
Getting back to Chad Morris at Arkansas the 2 – 6 Hogs have games left against…
Mississippi State Western Kentucky At LSU Missouri
Will Arkansas win another game in 2019?
We don’t think so and if that happens that creates a Helluva Problem since we have some real concerns that the folks in Fayetteville have a Damn Clue how to hire the next Head Football Coach if they let the current Head Football Coach go!
What a Damn Mess in Fayetteville!
By the way…we know exactly Damn what we would do in this spot to get the Arkansas Football Program rolling again but does anyone in Fayetteville have such a plan?
Not A Chance In Hell!
3. Clay Helton, USC – Clay Helton moved up a couple of spots in the Coaches Hot Seat Rankings this week even after a win because in your 57th game as the head coach of the USC Trojans you should not struggle to beat a 3 – 4 Colorado team with a first year head coach and thus Clay Helton’s dilemma >
Clay Helton is coaching at place that should be ROLLING like Alabama is now ROLLING in his 4th year on the job and yet…
USC struggles to beat even Average Football Teams and thus it’s our opinion that even the now 5 – 3 Trojans running the table against….
Oregon At Arizona State At California UCLA
…it would take USC winning the Pac-12 Conference Title for Helton to hang onto his job and that leaves little margin for error…Damn Little margin for error!
4. Mike Bloomgren, Rice – We got to see a good bit of Mike Bloomgren at Stanford and we really didn’t have an opinion on whether he would be a good head coach or not since we never really gave it a thought that Mike might be a head coach or not but we were happy to see Mike get the Rice job and so far….not so good!
Mike’s records at Rice now stand at…
Overall: 2 – 11
CUSA: 1 – 11
…and 0 – 8 in 2019 with these games still left to play…
Marshall At Middle Tennessee North Texas At UTEP
The UTEP Football Program is a Damn Disaster so maybe Rice can win the last game of the year but in our opinion they will be 0 – 11 heading into that game and that cannot make the folks that do the hiring and firing of football coaches at Rice happy since it means you are hoping to beat UTEP in a head coach’s 2nd year on the job at Rice…just to get ONE Damn Win on the board!
Not Good…Not Good At All!
5. Will Muschamp, South Carolina – Save the win over Georgia the 2019 football season has been nothing short of a Complete Disaster for South Carolina and Will Muschamp with wins over…
Charleston Southern = FCS Kentucky = Average As Hell Georgia = Maybe not so good after Notre Dame got its ass whipped by Michigan
…and with those 3 wins the Gamecocks have left games against…
Vanderbilt Appalachian State At Texas A&M Clemson
….and if Muschamp lost to Vandy this coming Saturday he should be fired right after the game so we don’t see that happening but will they win another game after the Commodores?
What would happen at a place like South Carolina when you win only 4 or 5 games in your 4th year on the job?
Probably nothing and that’s why South Carolina Football is South Carolina Football and why it will ALWAYS be South Carolina Football…unless they luck into hiring another legendary coach like Steve Spurrier which we don’t see happening in our lifetimes!
Don’t lose to Vandy Will or your head coaching career will be…OVER!
6. Steve Addazio, Boston College – With the Boston College loss to Clemson on Saturday Steve Addazio’s records at BC now stand at…
Overall: 42 – 42
ACC: 20 – 33
….and maybe that’s OK for the folks in Boston but to us at a place like Boston College the above records are…
Now there are reports out that Rutgers is interested in hiring Steve Addazio and let’s think about that for a second….
Rutgers wants to hire a guy in Steve Addazio who is Sub-Damn-Average in our opinion at Boston College and they really believe he would be able to do anything at all in the Big Ten East Division at Rutgers?
Got Damn Idiocy BIGGER than the Damn Idiocy of hiring Chad Morris at Arkansas?
Yep…in our humble opinion!
Oh…the 4 – 4 Eagles have left on their schedule in 2019 games with….
At Syracuse Florida State At Notre Dame At Pitt
Oh…that would be just GREAT for Rutgers to hire a guy with a losing season in the same year he was hired at the school he was coming from!
What a time to be alive!
7. Barry Odom, Missouri – We were willing to forgive an opening season loss at Wyoming which is a tough place to play but with back-to-back losses at Vanderbilt and at Kentucky the Mizzou season is on the verge of falling to pieces with the now 5 – 3 Tigers left with these games on the schedule >
At Georgia Florida Tennessee At Arkansas
Damn….Mizzou will more than likely be 5 – 4 when they host Florida on November 16 in a MUST WIN game that if lost would mean Mizzou would have to beat Tennessee or Arkansas just to get bowl eligible not that Mizzou is even bowl eligible being on probation!
What a Damn Mess at Mizzou!
8. Scott Frost, Nebraska – The most disconcerting thing about watching Nebraska play football in 2019 is that they look worse in 2019 than they did in 2018 in Scott Frost’s first year on the job and now with back-to-back losses to Minnesota and Indiana and only wins on the board against…
South Alabama Northern Illinois Illinois Northwestern
….who have posted a combined record of…wait for it…..
9 – 22
…it has got to be that Huskers fans are asking the same question we here at Coaches Hot Seat are >
Just what in the Hell is going on in Lincoln?
Or more to the point >
Just what in the Hell is Scott Frost and the Nebraska coaches doing because they just gave up…
38 points to Indiana
…after giving up…
34 points to Minnesota!
We are a long ways from Nebraska so we really don’t have any idea what is going on in Lincoln beyond what we see in the games but something we have noticed which is different from Scott Frost’s teams at UCF >
Scott’s Nebraska teams in 2018 and 2019 do not seem to enjoy playing football like Scott’s teams at UCF did!
Now what exactly that means or if Frost is coaching his Nebraska players differently than he did his UCF players we don’t know, but if it’s miserable to play sport that you are supposed to be playing it because you love it…as we all did in college…then you have Helluva problem on your hands and the 4 – 4 Huskers with these games left to play…
At Purdue Wisconsin At Maryland Iowa
…have a Helluva problem on their hands!
A movie that is often used in the US Military to show potential leaders what it should look like to take command of a unit, division, platoon, or command is Twelve O’Clock High which stars Gregory Peck and him taking over a “hard luck” US Army Air Force bombing squadron stationed in England during World War II. Perhaps the most famous scene of that movie is Gregory Peck giving his first speech to his new command and this one scene says everything about how a leader should take command of a struggling unit, workplace, or sports team >
What is not well known by people that have not watched the entire Twelve O’Clock High movie…which we highly recommend for anyone leading anything at all…is that Peck’s character after he got the squadron turned about by “Going Back To Fundamentals” got the place back to what we would call “regular order” which means the squadron transitioned back to enjoying their jobs as best they could in the middle of a shooting war and that may be the problem at Nebraska right now.
The Nebraska players don’t seem to enjoy playing football…as Frost did playing for Tom Osborne at Nebraska…because the coaches have been so focused on Fundamentals they have never been able to get back to “regular order” and thus enjoying playing the game of football as Scott Frost did and we did in college.
There is no reason in the world for Nebraska to lose at Hapless Purdue on Saturday and lose or not they should go to West Lafayette and at least…
Play Hard and Play for the Love of Game
…because right now the current status of Nebraska Football of…
Playing Scared and Having No Damn Fun
…is adding up to a Helluva Lot of Losses and just for the record here are Scott Frost’s records now at Nebraska >
Overall: 8 – 12
Big Ten: 5 – 9
Damn…that’s Not Good…Not Good At All!
9. Jeremy Pruitt, Tennessee – Winning a game in the SEC Conference used to mean something but with so many SEC Head Coaches on the Hot Seat these days fielding Average to Sub-Average Football Teams Tennessee beating a South Carolina team that is headed toward a losing season isn’t really achieving anything as much as it is…
If you had lost the game the world would have ended
…and thus that was the situation with Jeremy Pruitt and Tennessee on Saturday against South Carolina…
If the Vols had lost that game the world would have ended!
Well…not literally ended but with that win the Vols are now only 3 – 5 on the season with games left against…
UAB At Kentucky At Missouri Vanderbilt
Geez….talk about a MUST WIN game…Bill Clark’s 6 – 1 UAB team comes to Neyland Stadium on Saturday and with about HALF the talent…if that…of the Vols and if Jeremy Pruitt should somehow fool around and lose this game in our opinion…
He should be fired right after the game
…because to lose to UAB in your 21st game as the Head Coach of the Vols there really is no reason for you to remain as the Head Coach of the Vols!
With that win over South Carolina Jeremy Pruitt’s records now stand at…
Overall: 8 – 12
SEC: 4 – 9
….and if those records don’t make you realize that this UAB is BIG, BIG, BIG then you don’t have a Damn Clue!
10. Mark Dantonio, Michigan State – We have a great contact within the University of Alabama Athletics Department who has passed on lots of great information about the Alabama Football Program and Nick Saban for a decade-plus now and 99% of that stuff we have never written about or even talked about in public but we are going to pass along a story that is directly related to why Michigan State’s Mark Dantonio is on the Hot Seat now.
A few years ago Nick Saban was publicly complaining about the hurry-up offense which was noticeably impacting his ability to slow down opposing teams which was also increasing the overall scores of games in FBS football, but behind the scenes Saban was trying to both figure out a way to slow down hurry-up + spread teams while also making the CRITICAL decision to start running a hurry-up offense himself at Alabama to try and get some more points on the scoreboard.
The hiring of Lane Kiffin and the general embrace of a hurry-up offense and trying to score a lot more points wasn’t an easy move for Saban to make since he like us grew up in the 1970s like us and learned that if you played solid on the defensive and offensive sides of the ball and had solid special teams you could win a lot of games and that’s what Saban did….he won lots of Games + Championships…but at the key moment when the game of college football was dramatically changing it was either embrace the future or run from it for Nick….and Saban decided to Hell with it…
We are going to score more points Dammit!
This is such a CRITICAL lesson not only for coaches of sports teams but leaders of all walks of life to understand and that lesson is best summed up by the Late Great Andy Grove who was a Co-Founder, CEO, and Chairman of the Board of Intel Corporation and one of the smartest people we have ever run into in our lives who said the following in his great book – Only The Paranoid Survive >
“There is at least one point in the history of any company when you have to change dramatically to rise to the next level of performance. Miss that moment – and you start to decline.”
Nick Saban decided at a CRITICAL moment for his Alabama Football Program that either he could keep complaining about the hurry-up offense or he could decide to beat them at their own game and start to score some more points himself and thus move the ball forward, and Saban took the latter path and he has kept Alabama as a Top 3 program in the country which hasn’t really missed a beat even though college football has been undergoing a revolution of sorts on the offensive of the ball.
All of the above brings us back to Mark Dantonio at Michigan State who in 2015 had the Spartans in the College Football Playoff….against Alabama…and even though Michigan State lost that game by a score of….
38 – 0
….many thought that Dantonio would keep things rolling with the Spartans BUT…Mark Dantonio missed the CRITICAL inflection point when college football was undergoing a revolution of sorts on the offensive side of the ball and since getting destroyed by Alabama in the CFB Playoff in 2015 Dantonio has posted records of…
Overall: 24 – 22
Big Ten: 15 – 17
….and the reason that the Spartans are in such disarray today is that Mark Dantonio….much like Les Miles at LSU which got him fired…is Too Damn Stubborn to understand what is going on around him and CHANGE to keep Michigan State competitive both in the Big Ten and Nationally, and that alone should lead to Dantonio’s firing…unless he is able to look at himself in the mirror and admit his mistakes and ACT immediately to fix those mistakes!
Assembly Hall at the Paulskirche (St. Paul’s Church) in Frankfurt, 25 June 1963
It’s probably too late for Dantonio to do anything about 2019 since the Spartans are now 4 – 4 with games left against…
Illinois At Michigan At Rutgers Maryland
…but he can decide that if he wants to take Michigan State to a bowl game then they will need to score a Helluva Lot more than the…
…they have averaged scoring in their last 3 games and the Score Target should be in this Age of Scoring in College Football…
30+ Points A Game
..or even better to insure a win 95% of the time…
40+ Points A Game
Now if Michigan State stumbles down the stretch and loses 3 of their last 4 games then there will be no point in bringing back Mark Dantonio to coach the Spartans in 2020 because that would be…
3 of the last 4 seasons with Losing Records in Big Ten Conference Play
…and that’s just Not Acceptable at a place like Michigan State…in our humble opinion!
