The Meltdown of College Football Programs Across America – Coaches Hot Seat Rankings – Give These Hot Seat Coaches Hell Johnny Cash!

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!

Thank You!

Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

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.”

Amen!

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.”

Gus Malzahn Fired At Auburn….Kevin Steele….Really? This Be Charlie Weis At Kansas Level Stupidity! – Post Regular Season Coaches Hot Seat Rankings – Give These Hot Seat Coaches Hell Johnny!

The firing of Gus Malzahn at Auburn proves again that at some colleges Slightly Above Average Football is not going to be accepted and we have believed for awhile now that Gus Malzahn was eventually going to be fired at Auburn because Gus was never going to make Auburn Football into the football power that Nick Saban has created at Alabama. Now, there are very few programs that can reach the heights that Alabama has reached under Saban, but Gus proved that Saban can be beat, 3 out of 8 tries by Gus even, and that if Auburn has the “Right” coach in place that could be .500+ wins against Alabama.

Reading some of the reports out of Alabama on Monday that Auburn Defensive Coordinator Kevin Steele was close to being a front-runner for the Auburn job were highly hilarious since there surely cannot be someone alive on the Planet Earth that believes…

You fire Gus Malzahn’s ass to hire Kevin Steele….come on now!

Who knows because there was someone Stupid Damn Enough to hire Charlie Weis at Kansas but you see…even as a bad of a hire that Charlie Weis was at Kansas Charlie had actually done something in his coaching career when Kevin Steele won 9 games at Baylor in 4 seasons as the Head Coach between 1999 – 2002!

Easily if Kevin Steele is hired as the Auburn Head Coach it will move into the #1 slot ahead of the Charlie Weis hiring at Kansas for…

The Worst Head Coaching Hire in College Football History

Don’t underestimate the Total Damn Stupidity of Trust Fund Boys who asses fell ass-backward into a Helluva Lot of Money and thus don’t be surprised if Kevin Steele is hired at Auburn!

Let’s bring out the Great Johnny Cash to give these Hot Seat Coaches Hell!

Thanks Johnny!

Post Regular Season Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

1.   Jim Harbaugh, Michigan – It doesn’t take Sigmund Freud to understand what has happened to Jim Harbaugh at Michigan because it’s obvious that the 2018 season when the Wolverines started 9 – 1 with only an opening season loss to Notre Dame and heading into Ohio State game where the Buckeyes whipped Blue by the score of 62 – 39 is driving the current malaise in Ann Arbor.

In our opinion Jim Harbaugh poured all he had into Michigan between 2015 and 2018 and even with all that work saw his team get destroyed by the Buckeyes and since that loss to Ohio State in 2018 Jim Harbaugh’s records are…

Overall:  11 – 9

Big Ten:  8 – 7

The current situation at Michigan has nothing to do with Jim Harbaugh’s “commitment” to the school but rather Jim just no longer has the Fire needed to drive the Michigan Football program forward because in his mind he now sees no matter how hard he works he is not going to get past Ohio State and that equals what is going on at Michigan right now…

The Michigan Football Program is bogged down and getting WORSE not BETER every Damn day that passes and Jim Harbaugh just does not have it in him to stop Michigan from spiraling down forget about bringing it back and right now we would rank Michigan Football…

Ohio State
Indiana
Northwestern
Iowa
Wisconsin
Penn State
Michigan State
Michigan
Minnesota
Rutgers
Maryland
Illinois
Nebraska
Purdue

….as the 8 th best Football Program in the Big Ten and that’s down a few spots since Jim Harbaugh took over Michigan in 2015 and who has been paid North of $30 Million Dollars and…

Michigan Football Has Gone Backwards!

We don’t have a Damn Clue what is ahead of Jim Harbaugh but as long as Jim is at Michigan in his current mental state we see nothing but a…

Total and Complete Disaster for Michigan Football in the coming years!

2.  Scott Frost, Nebraska – It took Mike Riley 38 games at Nebraska before he lost his 19 th game but Scott Frost now has…

20 Losses on the Board

…only coaching in 31 games after a loss to a Minnesota team that was down 30 player at home in Lincoln last Saturday and we only see things getting worse with the Huskers set to play Rutgers this coming Friday afternoon.

If Frost loses to Rutgers on Friday he will have on the Damn Impossible in our minds…

Lose 21 games in 3 seasons as the Head Coach at Nebraska!

How can one possibly lose an average of 7 games a season for 3 seasons in Lincoln and keep your job when just a few years ago then Nebraska AD Tom Osborne said when firing Bill Callahan from the head coaching job at Nebraska that…

“A 7 – 5 record is not acceptable at Nebraska.”

Chalk it up to the Pure Damn Arrogance and Hubris of Nebraska AD Bill Moos who will in our opinion…

Burn Down Nebraska Football
Burn Down Nebraska Athletics
Burn Down Entire State of Nebraska

…before Bill EVER admits he was wrong about ANYTHING!

Reality is Scott Frost can continue on Totally Damn Failing as the Head Coach at Nebraska and he will NEVER be fired until you fire Bill Moos first and to that we can only say for anyone that would defend that Absolute Nonsense…

Your ass should be in a Mental Institution!

3.  Jeremy Pruitt, Tennessee – We NEVER give credit when Tennessee beats Vanderbilt in football to the Vols Head Coach since Tennessee should always have 10x talent than Vandy and this year’s Vandy team could be whipped by most Powder Puff Teams in America so….

No Credit for a Vols Win over Vandy in 2020 either!

In 3 seasons at Tennessee Jeremy Pruitt is now sitting on records of…

Overall:  16 – 18

SEC:  9 – 15

…and his record against FBS teams with .500+ records is still at…

7 – 14

….or .333% after beating Vandy which of course…hasn’t won a Damn Football Game in 2020!

In the Summer of 2018 about a dozen of us here at Coaches Hot Seat took 7 RVs from San Francisco to Boston via the Southern United States on a 10 week trip and we spent 5 days parked near Dollywood around Gatlinburg, Tennessee where we met up with about a dozen Tennessee Vols fans at dinner one night we met over the years and asked then what they expected out of Jeremy Pruitt and to a person they all said then….

“We expect Tennessee to by playing for SEC Title by the 2020 season.”

Well…the 2020 season has come and gone and Jeremy Pruitt is sitting on a 3 – 6 record with wins over….

South Carolina = Fired Its Head Coach
Missouri = 1 st Year Head Coach in 2 nd Game
Vanderbilt = Fired Its Head Coach

Anyone else got that Tennessee hasn’t beat ANYONE in 2020 which brings us back to right now so we in the past week reached out to the Tennessee Vols fans we met up with outside Dollywood over dinner one night what they think of Jeremy Pruitt now and where Tennessee Football is going in the future and one fellow summed up the general sentiment of that group best >

“We are no better today than we were 3 years ago when Pruitt got here and we may be worse.”

Just our humble opinion looking at Tennessee Football from Butch Jones last season to today we would say….

Vols Football today is right where it was when Butch Jones was fired….

Average As Hell!

If you love Average As Hell then you no doubt love to see Tennessee Football keep Jeremy Pruitt around for as long as possible….we certainly know a lot of SEC fans of other SEC schools who hoping Tennessee does just that because the last thing the SEC needs is a Tennessee Football program that is actually doing something!

4.  Tom Herman, Texas – We have seen some Stupid Shit coaching searches over the years but Texas AD Chris Del Conte public wooing of Urban Meyer for Texas job with multiple people in Texas Athletic Department leaking things to folks in Texas media about the potential for Meyer to be the next Head Coach of Longhorns may be the Biggest Stupid Shit Coaching or Non-Coaching Search we seen in 50+ years on Earth!

If your ass thinks that Tom Herman needs to be replaced and you talk to someone like an Urban Meyer and it becomes widely known in the media….as it did…then your ass cannot then suddenly turn around when Meyer isn’t interested and keep Tom Herman in the job because you made it clear….

Tom Herman needs to be fired!

Now we happen to think that Tom Herman should be fired at Texas because he’s Average Coach who is also a Pompous Arrogant Ass Punk…in our humble opinion…and we can think of a dozen coaches-plus who would do a terrific job at Texas and be able to light a fire under the Texas fans, alums, and boosters which is evidently above Del Conte’s paygrade or ability but then we talking about a guy here who…

Pushed his Head Football Coach out on a limb and started sawing the limb off and then says….Forget This Ever Happened Yall!

Got Stupid Shit on a Massive Scale?

That’s what you got at the University of Texas right now with a Lame Duck Coach that the Stupid Shit AD will replace IF he can find the right coach to do it but until he does…

“Tom Herman is our coach!”

Where in the Hell do they find all these Stupid Shits to take these Athletic Director positions at US Colleges?

Is there some kind of Stupid Shit School turning out all these Damn Idiots or do folks just hang around for long periods of time in Collegiate Athletics where it’s almost impossible to get your ass fired and…

Stupid Shits Rise Up to the Top?

We are thinking the Latter but we will not rule out an Athletic Director Stupid Shit School being out there somewhere in America unleashing these Damn Morons on Colleges in our country!

5.  Jeff Brohm, Purdue – Jeff Brohm has now made in 4 seasons at Purdue north of….

$18 Million Dollars

…and has posted records of…

Overall:  19 – 25

Big Ten:  14 – 19

…so about a Million Bucks A Win for the fans of the Boilermakers and after 4 years on the job we have Purdue at….

Ohio State
Indiana
Northwestern
Iowa
Wisconsin
Penn State
Michigan State
Michigan
Minnesota
Rutgers
Maryland
Illinois
Nebraska
Purdue

….the very worst team in the Big Ten which has got to make the fans of Purdue Football mighty Damn proud!

The 2 – 4 Boilermakers have a game left at Indiana this coming Friday and if the game is played that no doubt will be another loss and that will be….

26 Losses in 4 Seasons = 6.5 Losses A Season

….but look on the bright side Purdue fans…at least it’s not the…

7 Losses A Season that Scott Frost is gonna be sitting on if the Huskers lose to Rutgers on Friday!

6.  Mike Leach, Mississippi State – In 2 seasons at Mississippi State Joe Moorhead posted records of…

2018:  8 – 5
2019:  6 – 7

…and got run out of Starkville and Mike Leach is now sitting on a record of…

2 – 7

…in his first year on the job with a game left against Missouri on Saturday and one has to wonder….

Is Mike Leach gonna get the Joe Moorhead treatment in Starkville and get his ass run out of town or is Mike OK because his ass got off the plane when he got the MSU job ringing a cowbell?

Most interesting is that “Offensive Genius” Mike Leach was hired at Mississippi State because his team were going to score a Helluva Lot of Points and yet in 2020 the Bulldogs are now ranked…

#118 out of 127 schools in Offensive Scoring in 2020

….scoring an average of…wait for it…

17.3 Points Per Game!

Freaking Hilarious!

Let’s take a look at where we would rank Mississippi State in the SEC after one year under Mike Leach >

Alabama
Florida
Georgia
Texas A&M
Auburn
Ole Miss
LSU
Kentucky
Missouri
Arkansas
Tennessee
South Carolina
Mississippi Sate
Vanderbilt

Only ahead of Vanderbilt!

Freaking Hilarious!

7.  Justin Fuente, Virginia Tech – We know what Virginia Tech Football Could and Should Be and the last 3 seasons Justin Fuente has posted record as the Head Coach of the Hokies of…

Overall:  19 – 18

ACC:  14 – 12

…and that ain’t what Virginia Tech Football Should Be!

Word out of Blacksburg yesterday is that Virginia Tech is going to keep Justin Fuente around for another season and that’s not something we would do if we AD at Tech but it sure is something that college football fans of opposing schools across the ACC are…

Loving Every Damn Minute Of!

8.  Dino Babers, Syracuse – It’s hard to know what has gone wrong at Syracuse for Dino Babers since that 10 – 3 season in 2018 but the last 2 years it looks like the Orange are coming apart at the seams on and off the field as Dino has posted records in 2019 + 2020 of…

Overall:  6 – 17

ACC:  3 – 15

We believe in Dino Babers ability to Coach Football and the problem at Syracuse is the mindset of the Individual Player and the Orange Football Team overall and that is something that Dino Babers better get fixed and in a Helluva Hurry before 2021 Spring Practice begins which is only a few months away!

9.  Les Miles, Kansas – In 2 seasons at Kansas Les Miles has posted records of…

Overall:  3 – 17

Big 12:  1 – 15

…and in 2021 Kansas is slated to play….

South Dakota
At Coastal Carolina
At Duke
At Iowa State
Baylor
Kansas State
Oklahoma
Texas Tech
West Virginia
At Oklahoma State
At TCU
At Texas

That looks like at best 2 wins for Kansas in Les Miles 3 rd season on the job and again….

Why was Les Miles hired at Kansas?

10.  Dana Holgorsen, Houston – When Dana Holgorsen was hired the President of the University of Houston said that…

“If you don’t win 10 games a season you get fired.”

….and in 2 seasons at Houston Dana Holgorsen has posted records of…

Overall:  7 – 12

AAC:  5 – 9

Even worse Dana Holgorsen’s record against FBS Teams with .500+ records he is…

1 – 12

Translation = 6 of 7 of Dana Holgorsen’s wins are against Sub-.500% teams which is nothing short of a…

Total Freaking Disaster for Houston Football!

No One Will Believe What Happened in 2020 In 10 Years! – Whatever the Hell It is Week Coaches Hot Seat Rankings! – Give These Hot Seat Coaches Hell Johnny Cash!

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?

Thank You Johnny!

Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

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…

Damn Embarrassment!

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…

Huge Victory!

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….

Is Totally Damn Mediocre….and You Love It!

Embrace that Truth and Love It!

Whatever This Week Is Coaches Hot Seat Rankings – Corona Virus Out-Of-Control Because….So Many Damn Morons – Let’s Bring Out the Great Johnny Cash to Give These Hot Seat Coaches Hell!

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!

Thanks Johnny!

Whatever This Week Is Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

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…

Sub-Patty-Cake Football

…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?

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

Really?

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…

Clemson
Virginia

….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…

Auburn

…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

Oh Jeff Brohm is slated to make $5.7M+ in 2021!

Be Proud fans of Purdue Football….Be Oh So Proud!

2020 Thanksgiving Weekend – Stay Safe Out There Folks – Give These Hot Seat Coaches Hell Johnny Cash! – Post What Week Whatever Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

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!

Please give these Hot Seat Coaches Hell Mr. Cash!

Thanks Johnny!

Post What Week Whatever Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

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….

Sub-Damn Average!

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

Really?

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…

Clemson
Virginia

….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

….as Unacceptable….Right?

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!

2020 Has Been Helluva Interesting Year…And It’s Not Over Yet – Post Week Whatever Coaches Hot Seat Rankings – Let’s Bring Out The Great Johnny Cash To Give These Hot Seat Coaches Hell!

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!

Thanks Johnny!

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?

Yep!

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

Come on Dino….Homer Smith is watching Son!

2020 Has Been Helluva Interesting Year…And It’s Not Over Yet – Post Week Whatever Coaches Hot Seat Rankings – Let’s Bring Out The Great Johnny Cash To Give These Hot Seat Coaches Hell!

2020 sure has been one Helluva interesting year and it promises to remain interesting and devastating with the current state of American Politics and a Corona Virus that is again ravaging our country.

The people here at Coaches Hot Seat that worked for Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush and lots of Republican Politicians in the last few decades have a lot to say about the GOP of today that we will leave mainly to Twitter, but needless to say the Republican Party is now a Total Damn Disgrace to itself and the American Republic….in our humble opinion.

On Corona Virus the 7 founders of Coaches Hot Seat who got this whole thing cranked-up in the Fall of 2006 in hopes of ousting a Stanford Football Head Coach, who was quickly fired and replaced by Jim Harbaugh (more on Jimmy in a moment), run an Ad Agency in their Real Day Jobs and they closed their San Francisco office on February 17 because of Corona Virus long before most knew what the Hell the Corona Virus was…or was going to become. Now after 8 months of the US Gov’t doing a Piss-Poor Job on just about everything associated with Corona Virus we are now entering a Third Wave of this Virus ravaging America and is the President, the CDC, Anyone in the US Gov’t, or even most of the American People paying attention or doing anything about it?

No…is the simple answer and if you have come to believe that America is…

Full of Stupid Shits from Top to Bottom

…then you would be right because just look at the below chart to understand that FACT with Hospitalizations for Corona Virus now at 2020 Highs….Freaking Outrageous!

With the Corona Virus Vaccine less than 60 days away Americans cannot even do the Simple Things to protect themselves and others to slow the growth of Corona Virus…

Wash Your Hands Lots
Limit Time Inside Buildings
Wear Mask Inside Buildings
Social Distance With Strangers

You see…the above shouldn’t be too Damn complicated for anyone with a 2+ IQ and yet Corona Virus is ravaging America again and our Stanford Doctor who we been listening to since January on Corona Virus and who has been 100% right on EVERYTHING about Corona Virus since January told us yesterday…

“Lots of Americans are about to die needlessly from Corona Virus because many Americans are too Damn stupid to follow a few simple rules while American Leadership….not that we have any…is asleep at the switch!”

Amen!

Now with the SEC Conference cancelling football games amid a surge in Corona Virus again in the South and much of America…

….we are only a few weeks away from the Whole Damn College Football Season….at least what is left of it…being shutdown because Stupid Shits gotta Stupid Shit and before that happens we should probably get in at least one…maybe two…hopefully a few more commentaries on Coaches on the Hot Seat before the 2020 season is done!

Let’s bring out the Great Johnny Cash to give these Hot Seat Coaches Hell!

Thank You Johnny!

Post Week Whatever Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

1.  Derek Mason, Vanderbilt – Few us got to know Derek Mason when he was on the Stanford Coaching Staff and love the man, but what is now happening at Vandy is nothing short of a Complete Disaster!

In his 7 th season at Vandy Mason is now sitting on records of…

Overall: 27 – 52

SEC: 10 – 43

…and is 0 – 5 in 2020 with these games left to be played >

At Kentucky
Florida
Tennessee
At Georgia
At Mizzou

Will Vandy win a game in 2020?

Not likely…but Great Luck Derek!

 

2.  Will Muschamp, South Carolina – First time any of us ran into Will Muschamp was before he was on Nick Saban’s staff at LSU and we always liked Will but for lots of reasons…some of them identifiable and some of them not = they are intangible and thus hard to pinpoint…Boom hasn’t excelled as a Head Coach at Florida and South Carolina and now in his 5 th season at USC Muschamp has posted records of…

Overall:  28 – 29

SEC:  17 – 21

Now at 2 – 4 on the 2020 season with these games left…

At Ole Miss
Mizzou
Georgia
At Kentucky

….we be surprised if South Carolina won more than 2 their last 4 games which =

4 – 6 on the 2020 season….At Best!

We haven’t a clue if Will Muschamp can survive a 4 – 6 record in his 5 th year on the job at South Carolina, but then if we been Athletic Director at South Carolina or ANY other FBS School we not gotten ourselves in a spot where we would owe ANY Coach…including Nick Saban…more than 1 Year Salary in a Buyout but since there are so many Damn Morons in AD positions in FBS schools Muschamp now sitting on something like a…

$13M+ Buyout if fired after the 2020 season!

Got Damn Idiocy on Steroids? South Carolina AD Ray Tanner is a Damn Idiot worse than a Damn Idiot on Steroids as is anyone else at South Carolina agreed to such a Totally Asinine contract with Muschamp.

If South Carolina does go 2 – 2 in its remaining 4 games that would leave Muschamp’s SEC Record in 5 seasons at South Carolina at…

19 – 23

…with only ONE season in FIVE above the .500 mark.

Even worse…in 39 games that Will Muschamp has coached against FBS Teams with .500 or better seasons his record is…

12 – 27

Anyone think that is acceptable at a place like South Carolina?

Didn’t think so!

We will say this about Will Muschamp’s coaching at South Carolina with Gamecocks National Rankings of…

#92 in Scoring Offense with 24.8 Points Per Game

#81 in Scoring Defense with 33.0 Points Per Game

…is that Muschamp is now running….

Outdated and Outmoded and Totally Not Competitive Offensive and Defensive Approaches and Schemes

…that gives South Carolina Little Damn Chance to play Winning Football!

Easily Muschamp’s Greatest Flaw is his Stubbornness and either Boom will change with the times or his South Carolina Football Team will continue to lose games that it should be winning as is the case on Saturday at Ole Miss which with a 5 th year coach going against a 1 st year coach which should be a WIN for South Carolina…and yet there is a Helluva Good Chance it will be a LOSS!

3.  Kevin Sumlin, Arizona – Arizona has not played a game in 2020 with its first game at Utah cancelled because of Corona Virus and in 2 seasons coaching the Wildcats Sumlin’s records are…

Overall:  9 – 15

Pac-12:  6 – 12

Now that’s a 6 – 12 record in Pac-12 play when the Pac-12 has Never Been Weaker and in 2020 the Wildcats are scheduled to play…

USC
At Washington
At UCLA
Colorado
Arizona State

Will Arizona win a game in 2020?

1…maybe 2…maybe Zero…and there’s the Damn Problem for the Decision-Makers at Arizona that should have NEVER hired Kevin Sumlin right after he got fired at Texas A&M!

If your ass cannot win BIG at Texas A&M with all the advantages that schools has….your ass is NOT going to win at Arizona!

4.  Scott Frost, Nebraska – A few of us remember Scott Frost well from when he was at Stanford in 1993 – 1994 on Bill Walsh’s Stanford Football Team before transferring to Nebraska to play for Tom Osborne and to be totally honest….we think the world of Scott Frost and would love to see him winning at Nebraska.

Alas….in his 3 rd season at Nebraska Scott Frost is sitting on records of…

Overall:  9 – 17

Big Ten:  6 – 14

Even worse in 15 games Frost had coached at Nebraska against FBS Teams with .500+ records his record is…

5 – 15

We have a lot of theories on why Scott Frost has not even turned Nebraska into an Average Football Team in the last 3 years which are mainly centered around how…

Fundamentally Un-Sound Nebraska Is in Almost Every Facet of Football

..and in some ways are a worse team Fundamentally today than they were under Mike Riley which leads us to believe that…

Fundamental Football Is NOT Being Coached at Nebraska right now

…but alas we regress from what Frost and the Huskers have left in 2020 >

Now at 0 – 2 on the season Nebraska has left…

Penn State
Illinois
At Iowa
At Purdue
Minnesota

Nebraska should be able to beat Very Average to Worse Penn State, Illinois, and Minnesota at home but those 2 road games look mighty tough and if that’s the way it goes that would be…

3 – 4 on the 2020 season

…and an Overall Record for Frost after 3 seasons at Nebraska of…

12 – 19

After 3 seasons at Nebraska Mike Riley got fired and run out of Lincoln and his record was…

19 – 19

…with only ONE Losing Season on the Board….Frost would have THREE Losing Seasons in THREE Seasons on the Job!

Don’t try and make sense on what’s going on at Nebraska…none of it makes any Damn sense!

5.  Chip Kelly, UCLA – Anyone that doesn’t think Team Culture is EVERYTHING in football just look at the differences in Chip Kelly’s Oregon Football Program where he posted records of…

Overall:  46 – 7

Pac-12:  33 – 3

…record in 4 seasons on the job and now at UCLA Kelly’s is sitting on records of…

Overall:  7 – 18

Pac-12:  7 – 12

Chip Kelly’s particular…very particular…style of coaching requires a 100% buy-in from the players and since it’s easy for some players to question things that do seem odd to folks when you don’t have the entire team pushing in the same direction…like Kelly had at Oregon…you will find things very rough going and thus why Kelly is struggling so much at UCLA.

Now at 0 – 1 on the season UCLA has left to play in 2020…

Utah
At Oregon
Arizona
At Arizona State
USC

…and the Bruins probably be lucky to win what….2 of those games?

What would a 2 – 4 record mean for Chip Kelly in his 3 rd season at UCLA?

We haven’t a Damn Clue but until Chip Kelly fixes the overall Team Culture at UCLA he hasn’t an Ice Cube’s Chance In Hell of Winning with Bruins!

6.  Les Miles, Kansas – We have no idea why Les Miles was hired at Kansas because if your ass cannot win at a Very High Level at LSU where you could hire Captain Kangaroo and he win 9+ games a year and beat Alabama once every 3 years then there’s…

No Damn Chance Your Ass Going To Win at Kansas!

Kansas Athletic Director Jeff Long could have hired from a long list of Great Young Football Coaches who are desperate to prove their chops on a stage like the Big 12 Conference, but instead Long being Damn Clueless on most things connected with the Real World hired Les Miles which is very close…not quite but close…to the Kansas hiring of Charlie Weis which is easily…

The Worst Head Coaching Hire in College Football History!

In 2 seasons at Kansas Les Miles records now at…

Overall:  3 – 15

Big 12:  1 – 13

…and Kansas now at 0 – 6 has games left against…

Texas
TCU
At Texas Tech

Got 0 – 9 for Kansas and Les Miles in 2020?

Yep…you got it All Day and All Night Long….and you are Damn Clueless Jeff Long!

7.  Jeremy Pruitt, Tennessee – First time we laid eyes on Jeremy Pruitt he was an assistant coach at Hoover High School outside Birmingham, Alabama about 15 years ago when we in Bham to see an ad agency client. We have good friend who played for the precursor high school to Hoover High School, Berry High School, who played on a Football State Championship Team at Berry in the 1980s for Coach Bob Finley. Rush Propst was of course the head coach at Hoover High School when Pruitt was on the Hoover staff and watching them practice a few times we never thought very much of Propst’s coaching style since we are Bill Walsh folks who see the way Propst coaches as something from another world, but Propst has won a lot of football games with his particular way of coaching.

From that time seeing Pruitt coach for Propst at Hoover and later for Nick Saban at Alabama, Jimbo Fisher at Florida State, Mark Richt at Georgia, and then back to Alabama for Nick before he got the Tennessee head coaching job we never really thought much of Pruitt and were surprised that he got the Tennessee job. When Jeremy Pruitt got the Tennessee job our friend in Birmingham, Alabama who also wasn’t really high on Pruitt’s chances of being successful with the Vols laid out a number of reasons that he thought Pruitt would eventually be fired by “Year 4 or 5 at the latest” which was that a strong argument against Pruitt…and almost every Damn thing our friend predicted 3 year ago has or is now coming True in Knoxville.

In 3 seasons as the Head Coach at Tennessee Jeremy Pruitt’s records are now…

Overall:  15 – 16

SEC:  9 – 13

….and Butch Jones after 3 seasons as the Head Coach at Tennessee who took over a Helluva Lot Bigger Mess from Derek Dooley than Pruitt did after Jones had posted records of…

Overall: 21 – 17

SEC: 10 – 14

Also in Year 4 at Tennessee Butch Jones posted a record of….

9 – 4

Clearly Pruitt is now running right at with or behind Butch Jones at the same place in his time at Tennessee and with Vols now at 2 – 4 on the season they have games left against….after Aggies game was postponed yesterday…

At Auburn
A Vandy
Florida
Texas A&M

Tennessee should be able to beat Vandy…maybe…so let’s give them that win but what if Tennessee finishes at…

3 – 7

…that would leave Pruitt’s records after 3 years at…

Overall:  16 – 19

SEC:  10 – 16

That’s worse than Butch Jones and if Tennessee fans happy with that then Bless Their Pitiful Average Loving Hearts and Be Proud Phil Fulmer for that Great Hire Son!

8.  Jim Harbaugh, Michigan – We haven’t a Damn Clue who this is claiming to be Jim Harbaugh at Michigan but we got to see Jimmy up-close at Stanford for 4 seasons and….

This Jim Harbaugh at Michigan is the NOT the Jim Harbaugh we knew at Stanford!

Jim used to have a Helluva Lot of Fun coaching Stanford Football and we haven’t seen him laugh, fight, chuckle, do Damn anything that looks like he is having fun coaching Michigan in year now, and in our opinion this odd behavior by Harbaugh is at the core of the reason why Blue looks like a Sub-Average Football Team that got beat at home by a Michigan State with a first year head coach which then turned around the next week and got whipped by Iowa!

Jim Harbaugh’s records at Michigan are Decent…but Not Great…

Overall:  48 – 20

Big Ten:  33 – 14

….but Michigan is clearly fallen way behind Ohio State and it seems now…even Indiana…and at 1 – 2 on the season and these games left to be played….

Wisconsin
At Rutgers
Penn State
Maryland
At Ohio State

Ain’t no way this Michigan Team beating Ohio State and the rest of the games are all potential losses the way Blue is now playing so we have no idea what is coming but if Michigan loses to a Wisconsin team that hasn’t played in weeks then the rest of the 2020 season is going to be UGLY!

Memo to Jim Harbaugh:  Football supposed to be FUN Son and if your ass is not having FUN coaching Michigan Freaking Football making $8M+ a year then your ass needs to walk out the door so Blue can find a coach that will actually enjoy coaching Michigan as would all of us who would happily walk from Lake Tahoe to Ann Arbor in Winter to coach the Wolverines with smiles on our faces the whole way there!

Come on Jimmy…either Coach Michigan and have Helluva Lot of Fun doing it or go find something else to do!

9.  Clay Helton, USC – Clay Helton got a Total Gift in Week 1 from an Arizona State team that totally melted down to save what would have been a terrible way to start the 2020 season with a loss at home and now Helton’s records in 6 seasons on the job…

Overall:  41 – 22

Pac-12:  32 – 12

The above records are AVERAGE for USC and thus why Clay Helton is on the Hot Seat and at 1 – 0 in 2020 with these games left…

At Arizona
At Utah
Colorado
Washington State
At UCLA

…how many games can Trojans win in 2020 and how many wins does Helton need to hang onto his job?

USC can win and should win 5 of their 6 games in 2020 and if they only win 3 then Clay Helton is going to be in a Helluva Tough Spot come December!

10.  Dino Babers, Syracuse – We are not sure what has happened to Syracuse the last 2 seasons under Dino Babers since that 10 – 3 season in 2018 but with a record of…

6 – 14

…the last 2 seasons and overall records in 5 seasons at Syracuse of…

Overall:  24 – 33

ACC:  13 – 26

….Babers is in a terrible place with the 1 – 7 Orangemen still having to play this season…

At Louisville
NC State
At Notre Dame

Geez…that looks like 3 more losses to finish the season at 1 – 10….come on Dino…you need to win this next game against Louisville Son!

Post Week 9 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings – Let’s Bring Out The Great Johnny Cash To Show These Hot Seat Coaches What The Hot Seat Is All About!

Wow…Week 9 of the 2019 College Football Season is now in the books and it is True >

Time does go faster as you get older and Damn…Time is flying by now so enjoy each and every day because…

Every Day Is A Precious Gift!

Let’s bring out the Great Johnny Cash to show these Hot Seat Coaches what the Hot Seat is all about!

Thank You Mr. Cash!

Post Week 9 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

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!

If this 2017 Clarion-Ledger story is to be believed the candidates for the Mississippi State job in 2017 after Dan Mullen left for Florida were >

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?

Maybe not.

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…

Sub-Damn-Average!

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…

5.67 Points

…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!

2019 Post Week 8 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings – Give These Hot Seat Coaches Hell Johnny!

Week 8 of the College Football Season is now in the books and let’s bring out the Great Johnny Cash to speak some TRUTH to these Hot Seat Coaches!

Thank You Mr. Cash!

2019 Post Week 8 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

1.  Joe Moorhead, Mississippi State – Before Joe Moorhead took the Penn State offensive coordinator job in 2016 he was the head coach at Fordham where Joe posted a record of >

38 – 13

That’s a pretty good record and in 2 years at Penn State as the OC the Nittany Lions posted a record of….

20 – 6

…which no doubt got him on the radar of the folks in Starkville, but we cannot help but wonder >

Did anyone at Mississippi State think something like….

This guy has spent his entire career in the Northeast and would he be good fit in Starkville?

Obviously not and from Day 1 Joe Moorhead has in our opinion looked like a fish out of H20 and a Yankee in the Deep South and Starkville, Mississippi is the Deep Deep South!

Now the folks that support Mississippi State football would be more than happy to support Ulysses S. Grant as their head football coach if he WON but with Moorhead now sitting on records of…

Overall:  11 – 9

SEC:  5 – 7

…things are getting very precarious for Fordham Joe and at 3 – 4 on the season and these games left…

At Texas A&M
At Arkansas
Alabama
Abilene Christian
Ole Miss

…if Fordham Joe loses his next 2 games then….It’s Over…PERIOD!

2.  Chad Morris, Arkansas – A number that you just shake your head and look at with Chad Morris is his overall record at SMU and Arkansas…

18 – 37

Geez….how in the Hell do you get the Arkansas job when your posted a record at SMU of 14 – 22 we will never know but the losing has continued in Fayetteville and now at 2 – 5 on the season and with these games left to play…

At Alabama
Mississippi State
Western Kentucky
At LSU
Mizzou

…that looks like MAYBE 3 or 4 wins for Arkansas in 2019 and can Chad Morris possibly survive that especially if he goes 0 – 16 in the SEC in his first two seasons?

No One Could Survive That….even Saban!

3.  Willie Taggart, Florida State – Like Chad Morris we are not really sure how Willie Taggart got the FSU job since his overall record when hired by FSU stood at….

47 – 50

…and one would think that Florida State would be hiring the Best Damn Coach they could get and does someone with a career overall record of…

47 – 50

….sound like someone that is the Best Damn Coach that FSU could get?

If you said “Yes” to that question you are a Damn Moron!

FSU is now 3 – 4 on the season after the loss to Wake Forest and have left to play in 2019….

Syracuse
Miami
At Boston College
Alabama State
At Florida

Syracuse looks Hardly Coached At All so that should be a win and Manny Diaz’s ass is now on the Hot Seat so who knows on that one and Addazio is on the Hot Seat so we have no clue on that one and Alabama State is a WIN but Florida….looks like a LOSS to us right now!

Can FSU even get to 6 wins in Taggart’s second season at FSU?

We rather doubt it and with that in mind folks in Tallahassee might want to start putting together the $17M+ to buyout Willie and chalk this one up as a lesson and for the next head coach you hire here’s a Pro Trip from the Real World >

Make Damn Sure he has at least a .500+ record you Damn Morons!

4.  Jeremy Pruitt, Tennessee – Since many at Coaches Hot Seat grew-up in 1970s and were coached hard by our high school and college football coaches and then later went into US Navy and experienced Boot Camp and/or OCS we know what it is to be…

Coached Hard and Tough

….and we also know the difference between Coaching Hard and Tough and demeaning your players in public and it’s past time…way past time…for Jeremy Pruitt to…

Quit Demeaning His Tennessee Players in Public!

There’s a reason why the following Paul “Bear” Bryant quote is up on the wall at our ad agency….

“If anything goes bad, I did it. If anything goes semi-good, we did it. If anything goes really good, then you did it. That’s all it takes to get people to win football games for you.”

..and that it is because a REAL LEADER Takes Responsibility When Things Go Wrong and Gives Credit When things Go Right and somewhere along the way growing up in Alabama and playing football at Alabama Jeremy Pruitt NEVER learned that Coach Bryant lesson and we wonder why…we really wonder why?

Whatever goes though Jeremy Pruitt’s head on a day-to-day basis we haven’t a clue you Are What You Are and Pruitt is now sitting on records of…

Overall:  7 – 12

SEC:  3 – 9

…..and the 2 – 5 Vols still have to play this season games against…

South Carolina
UAB
At Kentucky
At Mizzou
Vanderbilt

That looks like 4 or 5 wins to us in Jeremy Pruitt’s second year on the job and would be ONE less or SAME than in 2018 and going 4 – 8 or 5 – 7 in Year 2 really has to get the fans of Tennessee Football fired-up heading into 2020 as does that the Vols are now 23rd in the 2020 24/7 Team Recruiting Rankings behind…

Stanford
Ole Miss
Mississippi State
South Carolina
North Carolina

You think 2020 is going to be any better for the Vols than 2019?

Why would you think that exactly?

5.  Lovie Smith, Illinois – Congrats to Lovie Smith and Illinois for beating Wisconsin on Saturday and with that win Lovie’s record against FBS teams with .500 or better records in 4 seasons with the Illini moves to….wait for it…

2 – 25

…which really speaks to how much that Wisconsin was a…

Total No-Show Against Illinois

…and has anyone heard Paul Chryst raise his voice at all over how the Badgers played in that game which looked like about 50% effort to us?

No…Chryst is quieter than a mouse which is odd….So Damn Odd!

Lovie Smith’s record at Illinois now stand at…

Overall:  12 – 31

Big Ten:  5 – 26

…and the 3 – 4 Illini still have games against this season…

At Purdue
Rutgers
At Michigan State
At Iowa
Northwestern

Damn….Purdue has looked awful most of 2019 and Rutgers is a Total Joke and Michigan State is falling to pieces right now under Dantonio and Iowa…well Iowa should beat Illinois but who knows with Ferentz since Hawkeyes come out flat 3 or 4 games a year and then there is Northwestern which is basically Totally Un-Coached right now which means…

Illinois could win 2 or 3 more games!

Got Contract Extension for Lovie Smith if he gets to…wait for it…5 wins in his 4th year on the job?

Hell Yes!

6.  Clay Helton, USC – It’s going to be fascinating to see what Clay Helton and the USC Trojans now sitting on a record of 4 – 3 do in these remaining games…

At Colorado
Oregon
At Arizona State
At California
UCLA

…which looks like 2 or 3 more wins to us which Best Case Scenario =…

7 – 5

…in Clay Helton’s fourth full year at USC and now you know why Helton is about to get run out of Los Angeles where you don’t go 7 – 5 in your fourth year on the job at USC!

Interesting number is last 2 seasons Helton is sitting on overall record of….

9 – 10

….which is Bad….Very Damn Bad when you are at USC!

7.  Chip Kelly, UCLA – UCLA had a bye in Week 8 after whipping hapless Stanford in a Thursday night game and now the 2 – 5 Bruins have left in 2019 to play…

Arizona State
Colorado
At Utah
At USC
California

What will UCLA’s final record be?

Our guess….4 – 8 or maybe 5 – 7 and either of those records might keep Chip Kelly employed in Westwood because UCLA Football has sunk to such a depth now just getting a few wins on the board = Winning!

We would love to see Chip Kelly get things rolling at UCLA and that means only one thing….beating Arizona State on Saturday because you gotta Roll before you Get Rolling!

8.  Manny Diaz, Miami – Our expectations for Miami in this Age of Mediocre Expectations for Miami is 8 wins a season and if you are trending below that 8-win line then your ass will be headed to the Hot Seat and that’s where Manny Diaz finds himself with a 3 – 4 record now on the board with these games left to play…

At Pitt
At Florida State
Louisville
At Florida International
At Duke

Damn…..that looks like a 5 – 7 record at BEST to us and when you go 5 – 7 at Miami…

Welcome Your Ass to the Hot Seat Manny!

9.  Will Muschamp, South Carolina – The Gamecocks played pretty well against Florida and got a few bogus calls go against them…one notable on a Florida touchdown…and with that loss USC is 3 – 4 on the season with these games left to play in 2019…

At Tennessee
Vanderbilt
Appalachian State
At Texas A&M
Clemson

You gotta figure those last two games against Texas A&M and Clemson are losses so Muschamp gonna needs the next 3 games to be wins to get to a bowl game…wait for it…in his FOURTH year on the job!

Notable record of Muschamp’s that ain’t good…

14 – 15 now in SEC Conference Play!

Damn….don’t lose to Tennessee on Saturday Boom!

10.  Kalani Sitake, BYU – BYU got a great win against Boise State at home on Saturday night to move to 3 – 4 on the season and that’s The Problem…that BYU is fighting just to get to a bowl game in Sitake’s FOURTH year on the job where he now sits on an overall record of…

23 – 23!

BYU still has games in 2019 against…

At Utah State
Liberty
Idaho State
At UMass
At San Diego State

Idaho State and UMass are wins so that’s 5 wins so a least 1 win against Utah State, Liberty, and San Diego State gonna be necessary for Sitake to keep his job but is 6 wins really now the standard for BYU Football?

NUTS we say to that but then we only been watching BYU Football for 40+ years!

2019 Post Week 7 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings – Mr. Cash…We Have Some Lazy As Hell Coaches Making Millions….Give These Hot Seat Coaches Hell!

It’s hard to believe that we now have 7 weeks in the books of the 2019 College Football Season but here we are and let’s bring out the Great Johnny Cash to give these Hot Seat Coaches Hell!

Thank You Johnny!

Post Week 7 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

1.  Lovie Smith, Illinois – There is a deeply troubling problem in college football today and that problem is Athletic Directors that listen to the agents of coaches telling that they should consider “X Coach” for “Y Job” and there is not an Athletic Director with a 2+ IQ that would possibly listen to a coach’s agent on anything beyond telling him what the school was willing to offer a coach and yet here we are….

Lovie Smith is the head football coach of the University of Illinois football team and in 4 years on the job Lovie has posted records of >

Overall:  11 – 31

Big Ten:  4 – 26

Why exactly Lovie Smith was hired as the head coach at Illinois when he spent the vast majority of his coaching career in the NFL is hard for us to fathom unless you understand this >

There are a Helluva Lot of Stupid As Hell Athletic Directors that actually listen to the agents of coaches when making coach hiring decisions.

Memo to You Stupid As Hell Athletic Directors and You Know Who You Are: YOU decide who you are going to hire as the head coach of your football program and then call the agent to set-up an interview and don’t listen to agents…agents are salesman and only want you to hire the coach and if your ass gets rolled by a coach’s agent that leads you to hiring a coach that his not remotely qualified to coach your school’s football team do you know what that makes you?

Stupid As Hell!

Getting back to Lovie Smith who was not remotely qualified to be a college head football coach the Illini are now 2 – 4 on the season after the loss to Michigan and those 2 wins are over >

Akron
UConn

What is the combined record of Akron and UConn you ask?

1 – 11

Oh…Lovie Smith wasn’t when he was hired and is not today remotely qualified to be a college head football coach…PERIOD!

At 2 – 4 the Illini have left to play in 2019 >

Wisconsin
At Purdue
Rutgers
At Michigan State
At Iowa
Northwestern

Save Rutgers and Northwestern which the Little Sisters of the Poor, Blind, and Deaf football team could beat the Illini will not win another game in 2019 and that makes the best case scenario for Lovie Smith in his 4th year on the job at Illinois >

4 – 8

Oh….Lovie Smith is not today and NEVER will be remotely qualified to be a head coach in college football….as for the NFL…we would probably give Lovie a look if we at a place had decent defensive players but in college?

Forget about it!

2.  Clay Helton, USC – We thought Georgia was a decent football team which Notre Dame gave a good game but after finding out that Georgia is coached by someone in Kirby Smart that is Lazy As Hell and is unwilling to get his football team ready to play football for a home SEC game in our humble opinion…more on Lazy As Hell Kirby Smart in a moment….maybe the Irish aren’t that great and maybe USC isn’t very good either…but then we already knew that!

Here are the Facts of Life at USC: As a new head football coach you have about 15 games to get things at USC rolling and Clay Helton starting off 12 – 3 in this first 15 games at USC in his first two full years on the job was pretty good but in Helton’s last 19 games he has now posted a record of….

8 – 11

Sorry but an 8 – 11 record in any stretch of losing games over a 5+ game stretch at USC is Totally Damn Unacceptable and when you get the USC football program rolling you either keep the USC football program rolling or you will be fired as soon as it stops rolling and USC football…is almost at a Complete Stop now!

USC is now 3 – 3 on the season and have left to play in 2019 >

Arizona
At Colorado
Oregon
At Arizona State
At California
UCLA

That looks like 2, 3, maybe 4 more wins for USC in 2019 and even 7 – 5 by the Trojans in Clay Helton’s 4th full year on the job means that USC will be looking for a new head football coach come early December but then most everyone knows that by now….don’t you?

We might consider hiring Clay Helton at another school on a lower level and maybe Clay can reinvent himself like Sonny Dykes is doing at SMU right now after getting fired at California and with that in mind Helton is conducting an interview of sorts over these last 6 games for ADs out there that will be looking to hire a coach in a couple of months!

3.  Chad Morris, Arkansas – Arkansas played a decent game against a very average Kentucky football team that has been decimated by losses to the NFL and injuries but came up short again and now Morris’ records at Arkansas stand at:

Overall:  4 – 14

SEC:  0 – 11

Geez…that’s not good but take a look at this Stunning Number >

Going back to the 2012 season when John L. Smith coached the Razorbacks the Arkansas record in SEC Conference play is…wait for it…

13 – 46

That’s right…Arkansas has won 13 SEC Conference games in the last 8 seasons for an average of…

1.33 SEC Conference Wins A Year!

Got that now Kansas AD Jeff Long was nothing short of a Total Disaster for Arkansas Football because Jeff also gets credit for hiring Bobby Petrino who we would not hire to Shovel Shit in South Georgia or even to clean the shovels for the people we might hire to Shovel Shit in South Georgia?

Yep…Jeff Long was just a Total Disaster for Arkansas Football and we don’t expect any different at Kansas!

Getting back to Chad Morris and the 2019 Arkansas Razorbacks the 2 – 4 Hogs have left in 2019 >

Auburn
Alabama
Mississippi State
Western Kentucky
At LSU
Mizzou

Mississippi State is totally imploding so that could be a Win but Western Kentucky is playing pretty good football now under Clay Helton’s brother Tyson so what….Arkansas will finish with a 3 or 4 win season maybe under Chad Morris?

Got nothing short of a Freaking Disaster in Fayetteville?

Yep!

4.  Chip Kelly, UCLA – As one UCLA alum buddy of ours described the feeling among the UCLA folks he knows about the Bruins football program >

“It feels like we have been circling a black hole for awhile now knowing that the black hole is going to suck us in and we just wish it would go ahead and crush us to atoms and get it over with because what’s going on right now is nothing short of Hell!”

That Hell looks like this with Chip Kelly’s current records at UCLA:

Overall:  4 – 14

Pac-12:  4 – 8

The good news is that the 1 – 5 Bruins play Stanford this coming Thursday night and if they can score 30+ points they just might be able to get a second win in 2019 but with these games remaining….

Stanford
Arizona State
Colorado
At Utah
At USC
California

…if the Bruins don’t beat Stanford we don’t see them winning another game this season.

Looks like the entry into that black hole could be coming soon and not a moment too soon!

We will be hosting some our UCLA buddies on The Farm this coming week on Thursday night for the Bruins – Cardinal game and it will be fascinating to see what direction things should go if things continue to fall apart in Westwood and the Stanford game will be the game that will Tell The Tale so Let’s Play Some Football on Thursday night!

5.  Joe Moorhead, Mississippi State – We were quite alarmed when we saw Kansas State totally manhandle Mississippi State earlier this year in Starkville but after losses to Auburn and now a Tennessee team that lost to Georgia State and BYU we don’t think one could find a Softer Team in America than these Bulldogs who look to us like the Ultra Charmin that you pay a couple of extra bucks for in the grocery store!

Joe Moorhead or Fordham Joe as he is known around Coaches Hot Seat because of Joe’s 4 years coaching the Rams where he posted a decent record of 38 – 13….but then the Patriot League isn’t the SEC and that’s the problem here…isn’t it?

Fordham Joe’s records at Mississippi State now stand at…

Overall:  11 – 8

SEC:  5 – 6

…and the 3 – 3 Bulldogs still have to play in 2019 games against >

LSU
At Texas A&M
At Arkansas
Alabama
Abilene Christian
Ole Miss

Of course the SEC has a Big Fat Cupcake right before the rivalry game for Mississippi State so the Bulldogs will get 4 wins and they should be able to beat Arkansas which lost to San Jose State at home but where will they get at other win to get at least…

I am Average As Hell and Bowl Eligible at 6 – 6?

We don’t know and if Fordham Joe doesn’t win 6 games in his 2nd year after taking over a Top 25 Mississippi State program from Dan Mullen then in our opinion Fordham Joe AND anyone and everyone involved in bringing him to Starkville should be FIRED!

Just our humble opinion!

6.  Kalani Sitake, BYU – BYU is such a secretive institution and our Mormon friends are not really into gossip or running down their coach to non-Mormons but we can tell you they are frustrated and a little down after BYU went to Tampa and lost to a really average South Florida team this past Saturday and now Cougs head coach Kalani Sitake’s record at BYU stands at:

Overall:  22 – 23

Not good…not good at all…and now the 2 – 4 Cougs have games left in 2019 of…

Boise State
At Utah State
Liberty
Idaho State
At UMass
At San Diego State

If you can’t beat South Florida then you are not beating Boise State and more than likely not beating Utah State…nor Liberty probably…nor San Diego State and that means that the record in 2019 is going to look like 4 – 8, or 5 – 7, or 6 – 6 and this is Kalani Sitake’s 4th year at BYU.

Not good…not good at all.

7.  Willie Taggart, Florida State – It was reported over the weekend that if Willie Taggart is fired after this season that he will be owed $17 Million-Plus Dollars by FSU and we cannot help but wonder >

Who in the Hell was interested in hiring Willie Taggart after one season at Oregon where he posted a 7 – 6 record to justify Willie getting such a lucrative contract?

The answer to that question would be NO ONE which brings us to this >

Just how Damn Stupid are the people at Florida State University to agree to such a deal?

Very Damn Stupid People is the answer to that question and that is important because FSU just got beat 45 – 14 by Clemson to fall to 3 – 3 on the season and they have games left against…

At Wake Forest
Syracuse
Miami
At Boston College
Alabama State
At Florida

Alabama State will be a win…we think…so can FSU find 2 more wins out of those remaining 5 games to at least get to…

I am Average As Hell and Bowl Eligible at 6 – 6?

If not it would be worth every penny of that $17M+ to fire Willie Taggart!

8.  Jeremy Pruitt, Tennessee – Tennessee finally got a win over an FBS team on Saturday but then that was over Mississippi State and there are at least a dozen junior college football teams that could travel to Starkville and whip the Hell out of the Mississippi State Charmin Non-Bulldogs so it’s back to Big Boy Football with these games coming up for the 2 – 4 Vols >

At Alabama
South Carolina
UAB
At Kentucky
At Mizzou
Vanderbilt

There are a few hundred high school football teams in America that could whip Vandy so that should be a win but will Tennessee win another game in 2019 besides Vandy?

Maybe…maybe they can beat South Carolina, UAB, or Kentucky….but maybe not as well and there’s the problem…

No one really knows what to make of Tennessee Football and that’s because there’s no one LEADING Tennessee Football right now….in our humble opinion!

9.  Jimbo Fisher, Texas A&M – The following comment from a Houston resident and long-time Texas A&M alum sums up the feeling of many Aggies with Jimbo Fisher 19 games into his tenure in College Station >

“We did not agree to give Jimbo $75 million dollars for him to be Kevin Sumlin-lite and right now it looks like this football program is going backwards not forwards from where it was under Sumlin.”

Hmmmm…..so Jimbo Fisher has now coached Texas A&M for 19 games and his overall record stands at…

12 – 7

And Kevin Sumlin’s record after 19 games coaching the Aggies was….

16 – 3

Please now…can someone tell us why in the Hell that Texas A&M is paying Jimbo Fisher $7.5 million dollars a year when they could hired any Stumblebum that fell of a train going thru College Station and he too also after getting a shower, a hot meal or two, and some hot coffee could have also be sitting on record after 19 games of…

12 – 7?

Oh…what about Jimbo’s record in SEC play in Aggieland >

6 – 5

And Kevin Sumlin’s record in SEC play after 11 games with the Aggies was…

8 – 3

Come now…let’s cut the Horseshit on Jimbo Fisher and start holding accountable all the folks that thought they were geniuses in bring Jimbo to College Station which it seems that some Aggies are starting to realize with our buddy also saying about Jimbo if he doesn’t get things rolling and rolling soon >

“If Jimbo cannot even hit Sumlin’s win/loss marks then we will run him right out of College Station and Jimbo’s legacy will be the total dumpster fire he left behind in Tallahassee and then getting his ass run out of Aggieland.”

The 3 – 3 Aggies now have left on their schedule games against…

At Ole Miss
Mississippi State
Texas San Antonio
South Carolina
At Georgia
At LSU

Can the Aggies even find 3 more wins this season?

Maybe…Maybe Not…but if A&M doesn’t win 6 games in 2019 then Jimbo Fisher will be given a check and 30 minutes to get his shit together and get his ass out of College Station and thus we highly recommend Jimbo beat Ole Miss in Oxford on Saturday or it’s gonna get Mighty Damn Uncomfortable in Aggieland!

Oh that $60M left on Jimbo’s contract…evidently our Aggie buddies could raise that in less than 15 minutes and Jimbo would be on his way!

10.  Kirby Smart, Georgia – We have contacts at about 50 FBS schools around America and we have a good friend that works at the University of Georgia going back to the earliest days of Mark Richt’s tenure in Athens and this fellow has passed along a lot of great info on Georgia Football over the years….and 95% of it we have never written about…at least directly….but we talked to our Athens buddy last week and he says to us…

“It feels like Kirby and the football team are just going through the motions this week not that it will matter against South Carolina. Aren’t we like 21 point favorites or something in this game?”

Yep….Georgia was a 21 point favorite at home against South Carolina and in our humble opinion…

Kirby Smart and his coaches took last week off thinking they could easily beat South Carolina and it is also our opinion that Smart had no interest in laying a beatdown on his good friend Will Muschamp and it was THAT that led to Georgia getting its ass handed to them on their homefield which means…

Kirby Smart totally failed himself, the University of Georgia, the fans of Georgia Football, and most importantly the Georgia Football team because he was a Lazy Ass last week…in our humble opinion…and didn’t properly get his team ready to play South Carolina.

Now…we just did a comparison between Kevin Sumlin and Jimbo Fisher at Texas A&M so let’s look at a comparison between Mark Richt and Kirby Smart thru 48 games at Georgia >

Kirby Smart = 37 – 11

Mark Richt = 39 – 9

Hmmmm….so Mark Richt was fired to hire Kirby Smart and Smart has a worse record than Richt and more importantly…

His Lazy Ass just took a week off and he didn’t get his team ready to play a 21-point underdog in a game at home….in our humble opinion?

Yep!

What does Georgia have with Kirby Smart exactly?

To us it looks like they have a very good recruiter who makes a Helluva Lot of Gameday mistakes and Preparation mistakes and now the pressure is really about to be turned up with Georgia having perhaps the most talent in America and the 5 – 1 Bulldogs have left in 2019 >

Kentucky
Florida – Jacksonville
Missouri
At Auburn
Texas A&M
At Georgia Tech

Will Kirby Smart have Georgia ready to play Kentucky on Saturday or the games against Florida, Mizzou, Auburn, Texas A&M, at Georgia Tech?

No one knows…and that’s the problem and if Georgia does drop 1 or 2 more games down the stretch with a Massive Talent Advantage in every one of those games then someone in Athens will have to ask the question >

Why in the Hell is Kirby Smart the head football coach at Georgia?
