“Great moments are born from great opportunities.”
“We should be dreaming. We grew up as kids having dreams, but now we’re too sophisticated as adults, as a nation. We stopped dreaming. We should always have dreams.”
“You know, Willie Wonka said it best: we are the makers of dreams, the dreamers of dreams.”
“You’re looking for players whose name on the front of the sweater is more important than the one on the back. I look for these players to play hard, to play smart and to represent their country.”
“When you pull on that jersey, the name on the front is a hell of alot more important than the one on the back.”
“I’m not looking for the best players, Craig, I’m lookin’ for the right ones.”
“If we play ’em 10 times, they might win nine. But NOT this game.”
“[as the players who were cut depart] Take a good look, gentlemen, cause they’re the ones getting off easy”
“[making his team do sprints after a lackluster game] You keep playing this way, you won’t beat anybody who’s even good, let alone great! You wanna make this team? Then you better start playing at a level that’s gonna FORCE ME to keep you here! AGAIN!”

“Friendships born on the field of athletic strife are the real gold of competition. Awards become corroded, friends gather no dust.”
“I let my feet spend as little time on the ground as possible. From the air, fast down, and from the ground, fast up.”
“I always loved running – it was something you could do by yourself and under your own power. You could go in any direction, fast or slow as you wanted, fighting the wind if you felt like it, seeking out new sights just on the strength of your feet and the courage of your lungs.”
“If you don’t try to win you might as well hold the Olympics in somebody’s back yard. The thrill of competing carries with it the thrill of a gold medal. One wants to win to prove himself the best.”
“One chance is all you need.”
“The battles that count aren’t the ones for gold medals. The struggles within yourself – the invisible, inevitable battles inside all of us – that’s where it’s at.”
“We all have dreams. But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort.”
“I wanted no part of politics. And I wasn’t in Berlin to compete against any one athlete. The purpose of the Olympics, anyway, was to do your best. As I’d learned long ago from Charles Riley, the only victory that counts is the one over yourself.”
“To a sprinter, the hundred-yard dash is over in three seconds, not nine or ten. The first ‘second’ is when you come out of the blocks. The next is when you look up and take your first few strides to attain gain position. By that time the race is actually about half over. The final ‘second’ – the longest slice of time in the world for an athlete – is that last half of the race, when you really bear down and see what you’re made of. It seems to take an eternity, yet is all over before you can think what’s happening.”
“I fought, I fought harder . . . but one cell at a time, panic crept into my body, taking me over.” –on almost not qualifying for the Olympic finals in long jump
“I decided I wasn’t going to come down. I was going to fly. I was going to stay up in the air forever.” –on his final leap in long-jump competition, a record-breaking 26 feet, 5 and 5/16 inches
“It dawned on me with blinding brightness. I realized: I had jumped into another rare kind of stratosphere – one that only a handful of people in every generation are lucky enough to know.” –on his Olympic achievements
“Football in its purest form remains a physical fight. As in any fight, if you don’t want to fight, it’s impossible to win.”
“Morale and attitude are the fundamental ingredients to success.”
“If a team is to reach its potential, each player must willingly subordinate his own personal goals to the good of the team.”
“We compete, not so much against an opponent, but against ourselves. The real test is this: Did I make my best effort on every play?”
“I feel more strongly about this than anything else in coaching: Anybody who lacks discipline, who doesn’t want to be part of the team, who doesn’t want to meet the requirements – has to go. It’s that simple.”
“The man who tried his best and failed is superior to the man who never tried.”
“Losing is easy. It’s not enjoyable, but it’s easy.”
“If you are going to be a champion, you must be willing to pay a greater price.”
“A boy shows how much he wants to play in the spring, when it’s tough, and during two a days, when it’s hot and tough. I don’t count on the boy who waits till October, when it’s cool and fun, then decides he wants to play. Maybe he’s better than three guys ahead of him, but I know those three won’t change their minds in the fourth quarter.”
“Breaks balance out. The sun don’t shine on the same ol’ dog’s rear end every day.”
“Football doesn’t build character. It eliminates the weak ones.”
“I learned this about coaching: You don’t have to explain victory and you can’t explain defeat.”
“Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.”
“Once you cross the 50 you feel like an unsaddled horse.”
“Punt returns will kill you quicker than a minnow can swim a dipper.”
“You know, a football coach is nothing more than a teacher. You teach them the same subject, and you have a group of new guys every year.”
“You’ve got to think lucky. If you fall into a mudhole, check your back pocket – you might have caught a fish.”
“You’ve got to be in a position for luck to happen. Luck doesn’t go around looking for a stumblebum.”
“On game day, I am more nervous than a pig in a packing plant.”
“There’s an old saying, ‘You dance with who brung ya.’”
“Really, it was said about two-thirds in jest. Since we won the Arkansas and Notre Dame games with fourth-down and short-yardage passes, another image has arisen. I’ve been pictured as a man who takes chances. Two stinkin’ plays, and I’m a helluva gambler.”
“Some of them are so green you could hide ‘em on top of a lettuce leaf.”
“He could run like small-town gossip.”
“Ol’ Ugly is better than Ol’ Nothing.”
“They’re gonna come after us with their eyes pulled up like BBs.”
“There was a hornet’s nest waiting for us in Houston, and we were walking into it like Little Red Riding Hood with jam on her face.”
“Winning coaches must treat mistakes like copperheads in the bedclothes – avoid them with all the energy you can muster.”
“The best thing a coach can hope for is to please the majority. And the only way to please the majority is to win.”
“I’m pretty thin-skinned. When they say, ‘Do you want some constructive criticism?’ I say, ‘No.’”
“It’s an in-the-trench battle. It’s meat on meat, flesh on flesh and stink on stink. And that’s the only way you can play it.”
“Trends are bunk. Only angry people win football games.”
“We don’t want candy stripes on our uniforms. These are work clothes.”
“He’s as quick as a hiccup.”
“He doesn’t have a lot of speed, but maybe Elizabeth Taylor can’t sing.”
“I didn’t want to stay until I had used up all the enjoyment because that’s too long to stay anywhere.”
“Mama wanted me to be a preacher. I told her coachin’ and preachin’ were a lot alike.”
“But it’s still a coach’s game. Make no mistake. You start at the top. If you don’t have a good one at the top, you don’t have a cut dog’s chance. If you do, the rest falls into place. You have to have good assistants, and a lot of things, but first you have to have the chairman of the board.”
“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.”
“I think the most important thing of all for any team is a winning attitude. The coaches must have it. The players must have it. The student body must have it. If you have dedicated players who believe in themselves, you don’t need a lot of talent.”
“The idea of molding men means a lot to me.”
“You must learn how to hold a team together. You must lift some men up, calm others down, until finally they’ve got one heartbeat. Then you’ve got yourself a team.”
“If wanting to win is a fault, as some of my critics seem to insist, then I plead guilty. I like to win. I know no other way. It’s in my blood.”
“Get the winners into the game.”
“The old lessons (work, self-discipline, sacrifice, teamwork, fighting to achieve) aren’t being taught by many people other than football coaches these days. The football coach has a captive audience and can teach these lessons because the communication lines between himself and his players are more wide open than between kids and parents. We better teach these lessons or else the country’s future population will be made up of a majority of crooks, drug addicts, or people on relief.”
“Sacrifice. Work. Self-discipline. I teach these things, and my boys don’t forget them when they leave.”
“It’s not the will to win that matters – everyone has that. It’s the will to prepare to win that matters.”
“I’ll never give up on a player regardless of his ability as long as he never gives up on himself. In time he will develop.”
“Set goals – high goals for you and your organization. When your organization has a goal to shoot for, you create teamwork, people working for a common good.”
“Don’t talk too much. Don’t pop off. Don’t talk after the game until you cool off.”
“You have to learn what makes this or that Sammy run. For one it’s a pat on the back, for another it’s eating him out, for still another it’s a fatherly talk, or something else. You’re a fool if you think as I did as a young coach, that you can treat them all alike.”
“If a man is a quitter, I’d rather find out in practice than in a game. I ask for all a player has so I’ll know later what I can expect.”
“Find your own picture, your own self in anything that goes bad. It’s awfully easy to mouth off at your staff or chew out players, but if it’s bad, and you’re the head coach, you’re responsible. If we have an intercepted pass, I threw it. I’m the head coach. If we get a punt blocked, I caused it. A bad practice, a bad game, it’s up to the head coach to assume his responsibility.”
“It’s awfully important to win with humility. It’s also important to lose with humility. I hate to lose worse than anyone, but if you never lose you won’t know how to act. If you lose with humility, then you can come back.”
“Losing doesn’t make me want to quit. It makes me want to fight that much harder.”
“The biggest mistake coaches make is taking borderline cases and trying to save them. I’m not talking about grades now, I’m talking about character. I want to know before a boy enrolls about his home life, and what his parents want him to be.”
“What are you doing here? Tell me why you are here. If you are not here to win a national championship, you’re in the wrong place. You boys are special. I don’t want my players to be like other students. I want special people. You can learn a lot on the football field that isn’t taught in the home, the church, or the classroom. There are going to be days when you think you’ve got no more to give and then you’re going to give plenty more. You are going to have pride and class. You are going to be very special. You are going to win the national championship for Alabama.”
“I’m no innovator. If anything I’m a stealer, or borrower. I’ve stolen or borrowed from more people than you can shake a stick at.”
“There is no sin in not liking to play; it’s a mistake for a boy to be there if he doesn’t want to.”
“I’m no miracle man. I guarantee nothing but hard work.”
“Don’t overwork your squad. If you’re going to make a mistake, under-work them.”
“Be aware of “yes” men. Generally, they are losers. Surround yourself with winners. Never forget – people win.”
“If there is one thing that has helped me as a coach, it’s my ability to recognize winners, or good people who can become winners by paying the price.”
“You take those little rascals, talk to them good, pat them on the back, let them think they are good, and they will go out and beat the biguns.”
“If you whoop and holler all the time, the players just get used to it.”
“I know what it takes to win. If I can sell them on what it takes to win, then we are not going to lose too many football games.”
“If you want to coach you have three rules to follow to win. One, surround yourself with people who can’t live without football. I’ve had a lot of them. Two, be able to recognize winners. They come in all forms. And, three, have a plan for everything. A plan for practice, a plan for the game. A plan for being ahead, and a plan for being behind 20-0 at half, with your quarterback hurt and the phones dead, with it raining cats and dogs and no rain gear because the equipment man left it at home.”
“My approach to the game has been the same at all the places I’ve been. Vanilla. The sure way. That means, first of all, to win physically. If you got eleven on a field, and they beat the other eleven physically, they’ll win. They will start forcing mistakes. They’ll win in the fourth quarter.”
“Little things make the difference. Everyone is well prepared in the big things, but only the winners perfect the little things.”
“Scout yourself. Have a buddy who coaches scout you.”
“The first time you quit, it’s hard. The second time, it gets easier. The third time, you don’t even have to think about it.”
“But there’s one thing about quitters you have to guard against – they are contagious. If one boy goes, the chances are he’ll take somebody with him, and you don’t want that. So when they would start acting that way, I used to pack them up and get them out, or embarrass them, or do something to turn them around.”
“There’s a lot of blood, sweat, and guts between dreams and success.”
“People who are in it for their own good are individualists. They don’t share the same heartbeat that makes a team so great. A great unit, whether it be football or any organization, shares the same heartbeat.”
“I told them my system was based on the “ant plan,” that I’d gotten the idea watching a colony of ants in Africa during the war. A whole bunch of ants working toward a common goal.”
“We can’t have two standards, one set for the dedicated young men who want to do something ambitious and one set for those who don’t.”
“I honestly believe that if you are willing to out-condition the opponent, have confidence in your ability, be more aggressive than your opponent and have a genuine desire for team victory, you will become the national champions. If you have all the above, you will acquire confidence and poise, and you will have those intangibles that win the close ones.”
“If you believe in yourself and have dedication and pride – and never quit – you’ll be a winner. The price of victory is high but so are the rewards.”
“Don’t ever give up on ability. Don’t give up on a player who has it.”
“A good, quick, small team can beat a big, slow team any time.”
“I have always tried to teach my players to be fighters. When I say that, I don’t mean put up your dukes and get in a fistfight over something. I’m talking about facing adversity in your life. There is not a person alive who isn’t going to have some awfully bad days in their lives. I tell my players that what I mean by fighting is when your house burns down, and your wife runs off with the drummer, and you’ve lost your job and all the odds are against you. What are you going to do? Most people just lay down and quit. Well, I want my people to fight back.”
“If they don’t have a winning attitude, I don’t want them.”
“I have tried to teach them to show class, to have pride, and to display character. I think football, winning games, takes care of itself if you do that.”
“I always want my players to show class, knock’em down, pat on the back, and run back to the huddle.”
“I tell young players who want to be coaches, who think they can put up with all the headaches and heartaches, can you live without it? If you can live without it, don’t get in it.”
“All speech, written or spoken, is a dead language, until it finds a willing and prepared hearer.”
“An aim in life is the only fortune worth finding.”
“Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.”
“Everyone lives by selling something.”
“For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.”
“I never weary of great churches. It is my favorite kind of mountain scenery. Mankind was never so happily inspired as when it made a cathedral.”
“It is the mark of a good action that it appears inevitable in retrospect.”
“Life is not a matter of holding good cards, but of playing a poor hand well.”
“Most of our pocket wisdom is conceived for the use of mediocre people, to discourage them from ambitious attempts, and generally console them in their mediocrity.”
“Politics is perhaps the only profession for which no preparation and is thought necessary.”
“Talk is by far the most accessible of pleasures. It costs nothing in money, it is all profit, it completes our education, founds and fosters our friendships, and can be enjoyed at any age and in almost any state of health.”
“The world has no room for cowards.”
“To be what we are, and to become what we are capable of becoming, is the only end of life.”
“To become what we are capable of becoming is the only end in life.”
“We must accept life for what it actually is – a challenge to our quality without which we should never know of what stuff we are made, or grow to our full stature.”
“You cannot run away from weakness; you must some time fight it out or perish; and if that be so, why not now, and where you stand?”
“You think dogs will not be in heaven? I tell you, they will be there long before any of us.”
“So long as we love we serve; so long as we are loved by others, I would almost say that we are indispensable; and no man is useless while he has a friend.”
“The Monterey Peninsula is the greatest meeting of land and sea in the world.”
“Many receive advice, only the wise profit from it.”
“The book to read is not the one which thinks for you, but the one which makes you think. No book in the world equals the Bible for that.”
“They’re certainly entitled to think that, and they’re entitled to full respect for their opinions… but before I can live with other folks I’ve got to live with myself. The one thing that doesn’t abide by majority rule is a person’s conscience.”
“First of all,” he said, “if you can learn a simple trick, Scout, you’ll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks. You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view–until you climb into his skin and walk around it.”
“Atticus said to Jem one day, “I’d rather you shot at tin cans in the backyard, but I know you’ll go after birds. Shoot all the blue jays you want, if you can hit ‘em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.” That was the only time I ever heard Atticus say it was a sin to do something, and I asked Miss Maudie about it. “Your father’s right,” she said. “Mockingbirds don’t do one thing except make music for us to enjoy. They don’t eat up people’s gardens, don’t nest in corn cribs, they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.”
“With him, life was routine; without him, life was unbearable.”
“When a child asks you something, answer him, for goodness sake. But don’t make a production of it. Children are children, but they can spot an evasion faster than adults, and evasion simply muddles ’em.”
“Simply because we were licked a hundred years before we started is no reason for us not to try to win.”
“You just hold your head high and keep those fists down. No matter what anybody says to you, don’t you let ’em get your goat. Try fightin’ with your head for a change.”

People in their right minds never take pride in their talents.
Atticus had said it was the polite thing to talk to people about what they were interested in, not about what you were interested in.
“Try fighting with your head for a change…it’s a good one, even if it does resist learning.”
“I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do.”
Above – To Kill A Mockingbird Quotes
“Well, they’re Southern people, and if they know you are working at home they think nothing of walking right in for coffee. But they wouldn’t dream of interrupting you at golf. ” Harper Lee
“Any writer worth his salt writes to please himself…It’s a self-exploratory operation that is endless. An exorcism of not necessarily his demon, but of his divine discontent.” Harper Lee

“The two things that motivate me most are closely allied. They are failure and a desire for self-improvement.
By failure, I don’t necessarily mean getting beat, although that’s often the end result and in itself is a strong motivation to go to work. The kind of failing I’m talking about is failing to measure up to the standards I’ve set for myself personally. When that happens, I get an irresistible urge – almost a compulsion – to improve. Whatever effort is necessary to prevent another failure, I just have to make it. Like now. Today.
Frankly, I believe this, more than anything else, is the reason I am where I am today. I’m not an easily satisfied person. Sure I take a lot of satisfaction in what I’ve achieved. But life doesn’t stand still. Every satisfaction wanes after a while, so if you’re like me you don’t sit around looking backwards. You try to move on, to look for something that gives you another satisfaction and, at the same time, hopefully adds a little more to your life.”Jack Nicklaus, Jack Nicklaus’ Playing Lessons, Chapter 1
“I never hit a shot, not even in practice, without having a very sharp, in-focus picture of it in my head. First I see the ball where I want it to finish, nice and white and sitting up high on the bright green grass. Then the scene quickly changes, and I see the ball going there: its path, trajectory, and shape, even its behavior on landing. Then there is a sort of fade-out, and the next scene shows me making the kind of swing that will turn the previous images into reality.”
“I like trying to win. That’s what golf is all about.”
Arnold Palmer, in 1962, after losing the U.S. Open to 22-year-old Nicklaus in a playoff: “Now that the big guy’s out of the cage, everybody better run for cover.”
Bobby Jones after watching Nicklaus win the 1965 Masters: “Nicklaus played a game with which I am not familiar.”
Author Rick Reilly: “He was not homespun like Sam Snead, funny like Lee Trevino. His pants didn’t need hitching like Palmer’s. Instead, he won over America with pure, unbleached excellence.”
Chi Chi Rodriguez: “Jack Nicklaus is a legend in his spare time.”
Gene Sarazen: “I never thought anyone would ever put Hogan in the shadows, but he did.”

Persistence and common sense are more important than intelligence. 6. The fox fears not the man who boasts by night but the man who rises early in the morning. 7. Accept the advice of the man who loves you, though you like it not at present. 8. Trust instinct to the end, though you cannot render any reason. 9.

“I do not live for what the world thinks of me, but for what I think of myself.”
“There is an ecstasy that marks the summit of life, and beyond which life cannot rise. And such is the paradox of living, this ecstasy comes when one is most alive, and it comes as a complete forgetfulness that one is alive.”
“The trouble with him was that he was without imagination. He was quick and alert in the things of life, but only in the things, and not in the significances.”
“I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.”

“If cash comes with fame, come fame; if cash comes without fame, come cash.”
“You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.”
“Fiction pays best of all and when it is of fair quality is more easily sold. A good joke will sell quicker than a good poem, and, measured in sweat and blood, will bring better remuneration. Avoid the unhappy ending, the harsh, the brutal, the tragic, the horrible – if you care to see in print things you write. (In this connection don’t do as I do, but do as I say.) Humour is the hardest to write, easiest to sell, and best rewarded… Don’t write too much. Concentrate your sweat on one story, rather than dissipate it over a dozen. Don’t loaf and invite inspiration; light out after it with a club, and if you don’t get it you will nonetheless get something that looks remarkably like it.”

“Once you fully apprehend the vacuity of a life without struggle, you are equipped with the basic means of salvation.”

Well the 2020 College Football Regular Season is over and we moved into bowl season…such as it is….and with that we actually have a chance for a few Head Coaches on the Hot Seat to make things worse if they take losing teams to bowl games and lose and then we have some Coaches on the Hot Seat who along with their teams are…
Hiding Like Damn Cowards behind Corona Virus!
Save us the “kids have been thru so much” because we got 50+ folks Coaches Hot Seat did multiple 6+ month deployments on the oceans of the world in the US Navy including Operation Desert Storm in 1991 and guess what…
Their Asses Weren’t Crying About Having To Do That and Were Proud to Do it For America!
These Worthless Crying College Head Coaches who will NEVER do One Damn Thing For America in their lives on Earth that are now hiding because the last few months been “tough” need lesson on what “Tough” really is in life!
Give these Damn Hot Seat Coaches Hell Johnny Cash!
1. Jim Harbaugh, Michigan – It was no surprise to us that the Michigan Football program totally imploded going down the stretch and has now gotten out of games against…
Ohio State Iowa Bowl Game
…because these are Damn Cowards in Michigan…that’s right…
Shameful Damn Cowards!
You are a Damn Disgrace Jim Harbaugh and your Team is a Freaking Disgrace because what happened at Michigan in 2020 is the…
The Michigan Football Team Quit On and Off the Field and how Jim Harbaugh is still the Michigan Head Coach is a mystery to us but then if we AD at Michigan we grabbed Jimmy by the scruff of the neck and tossed his ass to the curb already because this meltdown of Michigan Football On and Off the Field is nothing short of a…
Total Damn Disgrace!
The FACTS are that since Michigan lost to Ohio State to end the 2018 season Jim Harbaugh’s records are…
Overall: 11 – 9
Big Ten: 8 – 7
…and if Michigan hadn’t run like Damn Cowards Jim Harbaugh would about to have THREE more losses to add to the above Total Disaster Records!
What A Damn Disgrace!
2. Jeremy Pruitt, Tennessee – A few years back Derek Dooley was the Head Coach at Tennessee and was fired after 3 seasons on the job when he posted a record of…
15 – 21
…and now with the cancellation of the Tennessee bowl game…
And who is really surprised that Vols Football has Totally Melted Down just like Michigan did going down the stretch…we certainly were not!
….Jeremy Pruitt has 3 seasons on the job in Knoxville and his record is…
16 – 19
Please now…what in the Hell is the difference between those 2 records?
We will tell you in our humble opinion….Phil Fulmer hired Jeremy Pruitt from the 3 Finalists of…
Kevin Steele Mel Tucker Jeremy Pruitt
…NONE of which we EVER interviewed for the Tennessee job because we are NOT Total Stupid Shits like Fulmer and Phil is NEVER going to admit he was wrong about anything and would…
Burn Down Tennessee Football Burn Down State of Tennessee Burn Down American Republic
….before he admit he was wrong about anything….in our humble opinion!
Be Proud Fans of Tennessee Football..
You got a Raving Dumbass Egomaniac in the AD slot with a Pompous Arrogant Ass Punk who believes his Precious Ass is God On Earth as in the Head Coach slot….in our humble opinion!
Be Proud…Be Mighty Damn Proud!
3. Clay Helton, USC – We thought maybe Clay Helton had actually done some Real Work this past offseason and the Trojans were no longer a Total Train Wreck like they been in recent years under Helton and we were thinking USC would roll a Very Average Oregon team at home in Pac-12 Championship Game which was coming off losses to Cal and Oregon State and yet….
USC in the Biggest Game of the Season playing against the ONLY team with a winning record it faced in 2020…
Did Not Show Up At All to Play for the Pac-12 Title!
How Clay Helton is still employed as the USC Head Coach this morning is beyond us because this is what the Trojans did in 2020….
Barely beat .500 Arizona State team Barely beat Winless Arizona team Struggled against Average Utah team Beat Losing Record Washington State team Beat Losing Record UCLA team
LOST to Only Damn Winning Record Team it played against in 2020…Oregon!
What a Damn Disaster but be Happy USC Fans….you will get more of this Horseshit in 2021!
4. Tom Herman, Texas – As long-time Texas alum buddy of ours has said many times about Tom Herman >
“If your ass gonna be a Pompous Arrogant Ass Jerk your ass better Damn win big and Tom has been nothing but Average at Texas.”
Tom Herman in 4 seasons at Texas has posted records of…
Overall: 31 – 18
Big 12: 22 – 13
…and that is Average As Hell and thus why Herman on the Hot Seat!
If we were the AD at Texas we would have fired Herman after the last game of the season and hired Coastal Carolina Head Coach Jamey Caldwell who be a Mighty Good Fit at Texas because he is a…
Winner Who Wins and Loses With Class and who can Interact with Fat Cat Boosters and Everyone Else!
5. Jeff Brohm, Purdue – In 4 seasons at Purdue while making north of $20 Million Dollars Jeff Brohm has posted records of…
Overall: 19 – 25
Big Ten: 14 – 19
….and that is nothing short of a…
Total and Complete Disaster!
On top of the above Purdue was able to Weasel out of 2 games against Indiana in 2020 which is nothing short of a…
Total and Complete Disgrace!
Shameful….Just So Shameful!
6. Scott Frost, Nebraska – There is probably no Non-Stanford Head Coach we want to see win more than Scott Frost because we love the kid but Frost in 3 seasons at Nebraska has posted records of..
Overall: 12 – 20
Big Ten: 9 – 17
Mike Riley in 3 seasons at Nebraska posted records of….
Overall: 19 – 19
Big Ten: 12 – 14
…and was Fired and Run Out of Lincoln on a Rail and yet Scott Frost survives with lot worse records?
That is NUTS but Frost’s record against FBS Teams with .500+ records now stands at…
5 – 17
…and that is nothing short of a…
Total and Complete Disaster!
We have no idea how Scott Frost is still the Head Coach at Nebraska but then we not going to EVER tolerate….
So far Below Mediocrity you cannot even see it!
7. Mike Leach, Mississippi State – We never thought Mike Leach was a good fit for the Mississippi State job and thought Leach fit a lot better at Arkansas where you can get more of Leach-type players and so far the Leach Experiment in Starkville is sitting on a record of…
3 – 7
…which is a Total Disaster and looking ahead to 2021 Mississippi State’s Schedule looks like this with SEC dates not set yet >
Louisiana Tech NC State At Memphis Tennessee Tech At Arkansas At Auburn Alabama Kentucky LSU Ole Miss At Texas A&M At Vanderbilt
Geez…that looks like 3 or 4 or maybe 5 wins tops again in 2021 and if it’s not a .500+ record next season that’s going to be a Helluva problem for Mike Leach a year from today!
8. Justin Fuente, Virginia Tech – Our Expectations for Virginia Tech is that the Hokies will be in the running and challenging Clemson for the ACC Title Every Single Season especially in the 5 th year of a Head Coach in Blacksburg but instead of the Hokies getting better under Justin Fuente they seem to be getting Worse of just Treading Water and if we the AD at Virginia Tech we fired Fuente this year…but then…
Our Expectations for Virginia Tech a Helluva Lot Higher than Va. Tech AD Whit Babcock’s are and that is a…
Total Damn Disgrace!
There just is No Way in Hell Justin Fuente will make Virginia Tech competitive with Clemson anytime soon and Sorry….
That’s just Not Acceptable to Anyone who with a 2+ IQ!
9. Dino Babers, Syracuse – We believe in Dino Babers ability to be a Winning Head Coach but as we have watched Syracuse play the last couple of seasons it’s almost as if his team is coming apart at the seams off the field and that’s something Dino needs to focus on and fix which brings to mind this quote by the Late Great Bill Walsh >
“The culture precedes positive results. It doesn’t get tacked on as an afterthought on your way to the victory stand. Champions behave like champions before they’re champions: they have a winning standard of performance before they are winners.”
You better Fix the Culture at Syracuse Dino and Fix It Quick Son!
10. Dana Holgorsen, Houston – For a school in Houston that only just a few seasons ago was knocking on a Top 10 Ranking the last 2 years under Dana Holgorsen at Houston have been nothing short of a Complete and Total Disaster with Holgorsen now sitting on records of…
Overall: 7 – 12
AAC: 5 – 9
We talked to one our buddies down Houston way last week and he tells us…
“Holgorsen doesn’t win 8 games in 2021 his ass is done at Houston.”
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!
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…
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!
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…
In the 50+ years that the 7 people that founded Coaches Hot Seat in the Fall of 2006 been on Earth we cannot recall anything like what has happened in 2020, and even as we are more connected than ever on the Internet it’s our opinion the American People today collectively know less, read less, ask questions less, and ponder big questions less than anytime in American history. We have no idea what’s coming in the next 25 years, but if we are around to see it we are confident people will not believe what we will tell them about what happened in….2020!
One of the things no one will believe in 10 years is that so much time was spent testing College Age Kids for Corona Virus when it has a Fatality Rate lower than the Seasonal Flu for those under 30, but especially that lots of college football games have been cancelled and moved around for Positive Corona Virus Tests that if it was the Flu would mean nothing at all. Corona Virus primarily kills people over the age of 65 and America instead of Protecting Older Americans + Those Pre-Existing Conditions until a Corona Virus Vaccine was available the US + State + Local Governments have taken a Sledgehammer to the entire American Society and if they just done the former there be 200,000+ less dead Americans today.
Indeed, We Are Damn Morons and that will come be well-known in future years once everyone understands what Was and Wasn’t Done to stop a Corona Virus that can be stopped with a combination of Protecting the Vulnerable and a Few Simple Health Rules for the rest. Yes….We Are Damn Morons!
On to College Football in Whatever the Hell Week we just wrapped up it was another fascinating week of football that did have some impact on the Coaches Hot Seat Rankings including launching Louisville Head Coach Scott Satterfield onto the Hot Seat for taking an interview with South Carolina when Scott should have known doing such things at a place like Louisville is Very Damn Stupid Indeed! 3 – 7 Louisville hosts Wake Forest this coming Saturday and we would recommend Scott Satterfield win that game or he may just find his ass launched onto a Hot Seat that could end his Head Coaching career and all for what…
So your ass could turn down a job that went to a Tight-Ends Coach?
Very Dumb Scott Satterfield….Very Damn Dumb Son!
Speaking of Dumb when Will Muschamp was hired as the South Carolina Head Coach by AD Ray Tanner 5 years ago we wrote in this Coaches Hot Seat Blog why in the Hell someone would hire a coach that got his ass fired a Florida where it’s almost impossible to get your ass fired since Captain Kangaroo would win 8 games a year at Florida?
5 Years Later Will Muschamp is now gone leaving behind records of..
Overall: 28 – 30
SEC: 17 – 22
…which was as predictable as the Sun coming up in the East but as Batshit Crazy as the hiring of Will Muschamp was the hiring of Shane Beamer who at 43 years of ago has NEVER even held a Coordinator Position on Any Level of Football is a Total Damn Lunacy not of this Earth or of Any Known Planet in the Universe!
In 2019 we were talking to a College Football Coach about Shane Beamer and asked him why Beamer had not gotten a Coordinator Position and his response was >
“He will never get a Coordinator Position, but I would bet he will get a Head Coaching Job because of his last name and only because of his last name.”
We happen to agree and if you change Shane Beamer’s last name to Smith there’s not a Chance In Hell he would have even gotten an interview for the South Carolina Head Coaching Job since there are at least 500 Coaches in College Football more accomplished than Smith….make that Beamer!
Shane Beamer spent 4 years at South Carolina and he’s a Bright Kid…but what in the Hell does that have to do with South Carolina hiring…
The Very Best Damn Coach it Can = A Winner That Has Proven He Can Win on the FBS Level as A Head Coach!
South Carolina just hired a Tight-Ends Coach from Oklahoma because his last name is Beamer and in our opinion…..
Ray Tanner should be fired today but he won’t be because Ray Tanner could Totally Destroy South Carolina Football and Burn Down the University of South Carolina and Stupid Shits in South Carolina be lined-up for miles in Columbia to tell you about how great Ray Tanner is….in our humble opinion!
Please…this Shane Beamer hiring is Total Damn Lunacy after the Batshit Crazy hiring of Will Muschamp and in a Sane World Ray Tanner would be in an Insane Asylum….in our humble opinion!
On to the Whatever the Hell It is Week Coaches Hot Seat Rankings!
Mr. Johnny Cash could you please give these Hot Seat Coaches Hell?
1. Jim Harbaugh, Michigan – Jim Harbaugh is the same age as many folks at Coaches Hot Seat so we grew up watching Jim, playing College Football the same time as Jim, knowing Jim’s Father Jack Harbaugh, and generally we were very supportive of Jim getting the Stanford job in 2006 and we pushed as much as we could for Stanford to hire Jim over the other finalist who will remain nameless in this blog.
People you give a Damn about you will give the hardest time when they are slacking off and it’s our opinion since Ohio State boat-raced Michigan at the end of the 2018 season the Michigan Football Team has been on a continuous spiral downwards with Little to No Damn Leadership from Jim Harbaugh which led to these records since that OSU game >
Overall: 11 – 9
Big Ten: 8 – 7
We know some folks in Ann Arbor and have a suspicion on what is going on with Jim Harbaugh and why he has lost a lot of his fire the last couple of seasons which has led to a…
Dramatic Decline in Michigan Defensive Play
A Michigan Offense That Has No Rhyme, No Reason, No Heart, No Style, Hell…It Has Nothing At All!
Jim Harbaugh drove Stanford Football, the San Francisco 49rs, and even Michigan Football until the 2018 season like Vince Lombardi drove the Green Bay Packers, but that Jim Harbaugh is gone and it’s our opinion if Jim is not going to give his all to Michigan then he should go find something else to do whether it’s coaching in the NFL or something else…
Just go find something you have a Passion for Jim because Michigan Football right now is a…
A buddy ours who works for an NFL team asked us recently…
“Would we hire Jim Harbaugh right now to coach an NFL team?”
Our response was….
“We would have to talk to Jim in person before we could answer that question because something’s wrong with Jim now and maybe a change of scenery would give Jim new energy…or maybe it wouldn’t. For Damn Sure though we would know after talking to Jim for 10 minutes if we would hire him or not and anyone that knows how to interview people the right way would know it too.”
2 – 4 Michigan has Ohio State left on their schedule and the Buckeyes have been established as 30-point favorites in what would be Jim Harbaugh’s….
72 nd game at Michigan
Sorry but if your ass is the Head Football Coach at Michigan and you are 30 point underdogs to Ohio State in your 6 th season on the job…
Your Ass Should Be Fired!
And Bo Schembechler if alive and Michigan AD would have already fired Jim Harbaugh’s ass….in our humble opinion!
2. Kevin Sumlin, Arizona – We are confident that Kevin Sumlin never saw coming where he is now in his Head Coaching Career and what a great lesson Sumlin is if you don’t care about money and no Real Football Coach cares about money because they are too worried about Winning Football Games.
After Kevin Sumlin got fired at Texas A&M and got a Shit-Load-Ton Potful of Money on the way out the door he should have taken a year or 2 off from coaching but for some reason Arizona came calling to hire a coach who just got fired at Texas A&M which is a Helluva Lot Easier Place to Win Football Games than Arizona!
Why Arizona ever considered Kevin Sumlin for their head coaching job or why Sumlin took the job is a mystery to us but 3 seasons in Sumlin is sitting on records of..
Overall: 9 – 19
Pac-12: 6 – 16
…which is nothing less than a Total and Complete Disaster!
0 – 4 Arizona hosts 0 – 2 Arizona Sate this coming Friday in what can only be described as…
A Total Disaster in Tucson!
3. Jeremy Pruitt, Tennessee – Tennessee playing a Freshman Quarterback #15 against Florida seemed to keep things pretty simple on Offense to try and get the kid some experience and the Sophomore QB #12 that came in looked even better with him being able to handle some more aggressive plays but really now…
In your 33 rd game as the Head Coach at Tennessee you are not competitive at all against Florida….at home in Neyland Stadium?
Jeremy Pruitt’s records are bad enough…
Overall: 15 – 18
SEC: 9 – 15
…but even worse is Pruitt’s record against FBS Teams with .500+ records…
7 – 14
Really….at the University of Tennessee you have a 33% winning percentage against FBS Teams with .500+ records?
Phil Fulmer can do whatever he wants with Jeremy Pruitt job status as long as he’s the AD at Tennessee but there’s Not A Chance In Hell if we had taken over the Vols AD job 3 years ago we interviewed any of the 3 Candidates that Fulmer had as his finalists…
Mel Tucker Kevin Steele Jeremy Pruitt
Really….that’s the best Tennessee Football can do?
Sorry but that’s Damn Pitiful and the now 2 – 6 Vols have left in 2020…
At Vanderbilt Texas A&M
…and if Tennessee loses to Vanderbilt this coming Saturday we have been told by our friends in Knoxville that there’s better than a 50 – 50 chance that both Phil Fulmer and Jeremy Pruitt will be fired before the Texas A&M game and Tennessee will go after Hugh Freeze as their next Head Coach….before Auburn does it as well!
4. Justin Fuente, Virginia Tech – A Virginia Tech alum buddy of ours that works on Wall Street called on Sunday and says….
“In the last 3 seasons Fuente’s records are 18 – 18 overall and 13 – 12 in ACC play and for the life of me I cannot imagine Fuente coaching the Hokies in 2021.”
With the 4 – 6 Hokies only having Virginia at home left on the schedule we cannot imagine it either!
5. Tom Herman, Texas – With that 69 – 31 win over Kansas State to move to 6 – 3 on the season and only Pitiful Kansas left Tom Herman will have a 7 – 3 record on the board in 2020 which would leave Herman’s records in 4 seasons at Texas at….
Overall: 32 – 18 .644
Big 12: 22 – 14 .611
If the above records are acceptable to the folks at Texas fine, but they sure the Hell NOT would be acceptable to us nor our Texas-alum buddies who we missed fishing with in South Texas this Summer because of this Damn Corona Virus!
With Urban Meyer reportedly turning down the Texas job that leaves the folks in Austin in an interesting spot with an open engagement with Urban Meyer on the table and no other obvious coach out there that would get Texas Fans and Big Boosters excited.
Now if we were the Athletic Director at Texas understanding the Critical Role that the Head Football Coach at Texas plays in not only winning football games but raising money, talking-up boosters, engaging with fans, and generally being someone who isn’t a Total Damn Ass like Tom Herman who believes his Ass was put on Earth for everyone else to kiss…in our humble opinion….we would fire Tom Herman and hire Any Random Person off the streets of Austin and be assured it be a step-up just on the Human Being scale and yet who should Texas hire to replace Herman then?
Well…if Urban Meyer is out below are the Coaches we would talk to in order to see if they were interested in the Texas Head Coaching Job >
Brian Kelly Dan Mullen Matt Campbell Mario Cristobal Jamey Chadwell Luke Fickell Bryan Harsin
One of the above Coaches would take the Texas job…in our humble opinion and ALL be better than Tom Herman!
6. Jeff Brohm, Purdue – Someone that is making $5M+ Dollars shouldn’t be posting records that look like this at Purdue or anywhere else…
2017: 7 – 6 2018: 6 – 7 2019: 4 – 8 2020: 2 – 4
That 2 – 4 Purdue team has a game left at Indiana so that’s 2 – 5 more than likely in Jeff Brohm’s 4 th year at Purdue and a team that in Brohm’s 44 th game just flat-out…
Got Its Ass Whipped by Nebraska Team that had only 2 Wins coming into the game!
Please…can someone tell us what Jeff Brohm is doing because in our opinion you could fire the Entire Damn Purdue Coaching Staff today and just roll the footballs out onto the practice field and the Boilermakers play a Lot Better and a Helluva Lot Harder!
7. Scott Frost, Nebraska – Scott Frost has now entered the “Mike Shula” era of his career where if Frost can just get his ass dressed in the morning and get his ass into work and beat Pitiful Damn Teams like Penn State and Purdue it’s a…
Famously many Alabama Football Fans were Fighting Like Dogs to keep Mike Shula as the Head Coach at Alabama when after 4 seasons on the job Shula had posted a record of…
26 – 23
..and it is our humble opinion that Scott Frost could Burn Down the Nebraska Football Program and Entire State of Nebraska and a majority of Nebraska Football fans would be cheering him on hoping he could burn down something else!
In the Real World this is called Mass Delusional and it’s a real problem at Nebraska now where people are able to justify Scott Frost sitting on a record of…..
11 – 19
…after 3 years on the job and if the Huskers beat Minnesota to end the season that be..
12 – 19
…and here are the records of the 2 Previous Head Coaches at Nebraska after 3 seasons on the job…
Bill Callahan: 22 – 15
Mike Riley: 19 – 19
As we said….Mass Delusion + Lots of Stupid Shit!
Today most fans of Alabama Football will readily admit that accepting the Mike Shula Years at Alabama was a form of Total Damn Lunacy and eventually if Scott Frost continues on his current trend it will be seen as Total Damn Lunacy as well.
8. Dino Babers, Syracuse – With the loss to Notre Dame on Saturday the Orange finished at 1 – 10 in 2020 and Dino Babers records after 5 seasons on the job now stand at…
Overall: 24 – 36
SEC: 13 – 29
…with only ONE Winning Season on the board and if that’s OK for the folks that run and cheer for Syracuse Football then Fine and Dandy and immediately turn in your American Citizen Cards because your ass should be living in a Communist Country that is willing to accept Total Mediocrity!
9. Les Miles, Kansas – With only Texas left on the schedule for 0 – 9 Kansas Les Miles is headed for a Winless Record in his 2nd Season on the job which has left Miles’ records at…
Overall: 3 – 17
Big 12: 1 – 15
Please…Someone…Anyone…can you tell us why Les Miles was hired at Kansas?
Looking for some Damn Moron to speak-up and we don’t even see or hear that!
10. Gus Malzahn, Auburn – If Gus Malzahn is succeeding at Auburn then Auburn Fans must be willing to accept 4+ Losses A Season for…wait for it…
7 Straight Seasons Now
….which is what you got with Gus Malzahn and that would be FIVE losses in 2020 if the SEC Conference actually employed Refs that knew their ass from the side of a barn…the Bogus Arkansas Game ending of course!
What it really comes down to Auburn is…
Are you willing to accept Total Damn Mediocrity?
If you are….GREAT….then keep Gus Malzahn but understand that you…meaning Auburn….
There is no way back in the Summer that we could have predicted that so much of America would be unable to follow Simple Rules to stop the spread of a Virus which are Simple Rules we have followed for years during Flu Season which basically is…
Wash Hands Lots Limit Time Inside Public Buildings
…which has only added…
Wear Masks Inside Public Buildings
…in 2020 to stop the spread of Corona Virus and yet here we are heading towards Christmas.
America has 100,000+ more deaths from Corona Virus than any other country on Earth and deservedly so because when your ass cannot follow even Very Simple Rules then you gonna have a Helluva Mess on your hands and that is where America is right now.
Come on folks!
Let’s bring out the Great Johnny Cash to give these Hot Seat Coaches Hell!
1. Jim Harbaugh, Michigan – We haven’t a Damn Clue what is going on with Michigan Football, but that performance by Michigan on Saturday against a winless Penn State team was easily….
The Worst Performance by a Michigan Football Team in our 50+ Years on Earth!
We also haven’t a Damn Clue what Jim Harbaugh is trying to do with the Michigan Offense but what the Wolverines are now running on Offense is…
Total Crapola….no make that Total Damn Stupid Shit Total Crapola!
It has gotten so bad at Michigan that Jim Harbaugh now…
Poses a Clear and Present Danger to the Safety and Well-Being to Michigan Football Players
….in our opinion because Jim Harbaugh is no longer coaching football at Michigan and you could just roll the footballs onto the practice fields at Michigan and the Wolverines players would not only field a better team they would actually be…
Safer on Gameday because they would actually be Practicing Football!
Michigan is now 2 – 4 in 2020 and they have beaten…
Awful Minnesota Pitiful Penn State
…and needed 3 Overtimes to beat a Rutgers team that was one the worst college football teams in America the last 5 years coming into the 2020 season!
If we were the Athletic Director at Michigan we would have already fired Jim Harbaugh because he does in our opinion…
Poses a Clear and Present Danger to the Safety and Well-Being to Michigan Football Players
….because this is Not Football being played at Michigan, Hell it’s not even Patty-Cake…YES Michigan Football is now playing…
…and Every Damn Powder Puff Team we have seen play football in our 50+ years on Earth could…
Whip the Living Hell out of this Michigan Football Team!
Memo to Michigan AD Ward Manuel: If you care about the Safety and Well-Being of the Michigan Football Players fire Jim Harbaugh today!
2 – 4 Michigan has left….
Maryland At Ohio State
…and it’s certainly possible Michigan will find a way to weasel out of an Total Ass Whipping in Columbus but can Blue even beat Maryland at home?
They couldn’t beat a Winless Penn State Team that just got whipped by Nebraska which is…
One of the worse Power 5 Conference Football Teams in America!
2. Tom Herman, Texas – It goes without saying when you get Tom Herman as your Head Football Coach you know going in you are hiring…
One of the Most Pompous Arrogant Ass Human Beings on the Earth who believes his Ass is God on Earth and Every Other Human Being is a Worthless Piece of Shit
…in our humble opinion but one would think Herman thinking his ass is God on Earth would at least…
Win A Helluva Lot of Football Games and Championships
…and yet Herman’s records at Texas where Bozo the Clown could win .675 of their games is now…
Overall: 30 – 18 (.625)
Big 12: 21 – 13
5 – 3 Texas has left in 2020…
At Kansas State At Kansas
…and Every Damn Powder Puff Team in America could whip the Hell out of Kansas so we will see what Texas does against Kansas State but we are talking about Texas here and in Year 4 you would think that…
God Almighty Himself = Tom Herman
…would as the Head Coach at TEXAS be able to beat Kansas State….Right?
Someone in Austin needs to fire God Almighty and after you fire his Worthless Damn Ass kick his Worthless Damn Ass off the University of Texas campus and then hold a press conference saying…
Only a Total Stupid Shit would hire Tom Herman….unless you want a Worthless Ass Pompous Arrogant Punk as your Head Coach….in our humble opinion.
3. Kevin Sumlin, Arizona – Kevin Sumlin’s records at Arizona say it all…
Overall: 9 – 18
Pac-12: 6 – 15
….but consider Sumlin’s record against FBS Teams with .500+ records now stands at…
2 – 17
…and you have a full understanding at how bad things have gotten at Arizona which has now lost…wait for it… 10 Straight Football Games!
0 – 3 Arizona now has left in 2020…..
Colorado Arizona State
…which looks like 2 more less and that would be 12 Straight Losses for Arizona heading into the 2021 season with or without Kevin Sumlin and the next time an Athletic Director thinks about hiring a coach that just….
Got His Ass Fired at a place like Texas A&M where Captain Kangaroo can win 8 games a season and got a Massive $$$ Buyout….Don’t Do It….
Just Don’t Damn Do It you Damn Moron AD and there are Lots of Damn Moron ADs in America today!
4. Scott Frost, Nebraska – One would think by Scott Frost’s 29 th game as the Head Coach at Nebraska that the Huskers be able to beat Iowa but an even better question that we be asking of Frost after his football team lost 26 – 20 to Iowa on the road is…
“How in the Hell Son can you play Iowa to a tough game until the end on the road and the week before you get your ass whipped by a very mediocre Illinois team at home? Please explain that to me Son!”
With that loss Scott Frost, who is making $5M Dollars A Year and should be for that kind of money be able to field a football team that actually shows up in home games in Lincoln, records now stand at…
Overall: 10 – 19
Big Ten: 7 – 16
For almost $15M Dollars in the bank now for Scott Frost and he has put up those records?
Try Scott Frost has not EARNED $10 Damn Dollars because Nebraska could have hired…
Any Damn Moron off the streets of Omaha 3 years ago and paid him $10 Damn Dollars and His or Her Ass could have posted records of…
Overall: 10 – 19
Big Ten: 7 – 16
The 1 – 4 Huskers now have left in 2020…
At Purdue Minnesota
….and based upon the way Nebraska has played in 2020 that looks like 1 more loss at least at Purdue which just lost back-to-back games against Very Mediocre Minnesota and Purdue and then a battle of the…
2 Biggest Cream Puff Teams in America on December 12 in Lincoln = Minnesota vs. Purdue
5. Jeremy Pruitt, Tennessee – Somehow the Vols were able to wiggle out of playing Vanderbilt riding a 5 game losing streak which would with a loss to Vandy led to both Phil Fulmer and Jeremy Pruitt being fired within 24 hours and now 2 – 5 Tennessee has coming up…
Florida Texas A&M
….the #5 and #6 teams in the country who are both motivated to keep winning to keep alive the potential for playing in the College Football Playoff which looks like 2 more losses and a….
2 – 7
…record of Jeremy Pruitt in his THIRD year on the job and if you are thinking that Tennessee could have hired…
Paul Finebaum to coach Tennessee
…and he done better than Jeremy Pruitt coaching the Vols the last 3 seasons…
You would be right!
If Tennessee did finish in Pruitt’s THIRD year on the job at…
Overall: 2 – 7
SEC: 2 – 7
….that would be quite the come-down from the last Vols Head Coach Butch Jones who in his THIRD year at Tennessee posted records of…
Overall: 9 – 4
SEC: 5 – 3
Yes…Congrats Tennessee Fans on that Great Hire the Great and God Almighty Himself Phil Fulmer made there in Jeremy Pruitt who is worse than the Head Coach the Vols ran out of town but don’t expect Fulmer or Pruitt to ever admit they have been wrong on Tennessee Football or Anything Else because you see when you are a…
Pompous Arrogant Ass like both Fulmer and Pruitt
….are in our humble opinion fully expect them to Takedown Tennessee Football and burn down everything in sight before they leave town with Millions and Millions of Dollars of YOUR $$$…in our humble opinion.
6. Justin Fuente, Virginia Tech – Justin Fuente, even in the 10 – 4 season in his first year on the job at Virginia Tech, has lost 4+ games every season he has coached the Hokies and with already 5 losses on the board in 2020 with a record of 4 – 5 and games left against…
….that at best will be 5 – 6 in Justin Fuente’s FIFTH year on the job in Blacksburg and if that is acceptable to the folks that support Virginia Football then Bless you folks!
It’s hard to know anymore what the Expectations are a place like Virginia Tech, which we would guess would be Playing for the ACC Title Every Damn Year but maybe we are wrong, so we don’t have a good handle on whether Justin Fuente can survive going 5 – 6 in his FIFTH year on the job at Va. Tech but maybe he can….maybe he can!
7. Dino Babers, Syracuse – Syracuse played NC State on the road tough before losing 36 – 29 and it was nice to see some fight in the Orange, but with that loss Syracuse falls to…
1 – 9
…in 2020 and they still have to play a game against…
The Irish will be very motivated to not only Win but make it a Big Win and that means the Orange are going to finish at…
1 – 10
….in Dino Babers FIFTH year on the job at Syracuse and because of Corona Virus maybe Dino can hang onto his job but for sure Dino will be on a Roaring Hot Seat entering the 2021 season if he is back to coach the OAt Notre Damnrange next year!
8. Les Miles, Kansas – Why was Les Miles hired as the Head Coach at Kansas when the…
Last Damn Thing on Earth that Kansas needed was another Fired Re-Tread Coach 2 Seasons Ago?
No idea but Les Miles records the last 2 seasons at Kansas now stand at…
Overall: 3 – 16
Big 12: 1 – 14
….and again we ask no one in particular but mainly folks with Sub 2 IQs because they be the only ones EVER consider hiring Les Miles at Kansas 2 seasons ago >
Why was Les Miles hired at Kansas?
Kansas now at 0 – 7 has left in 2020….
At Texas Tech Texas
…which sure looks like 2 losses to us and…
0 – 9
…in Les Miles 2 nd year on the job and again…
Why was Les Miles hired at Kansas?
9. Mike Leach, Mississippi State – If Mississippi State is going to fire a coach in Joe Moorhead who posted records of…
8 – 5 6 – 7
….in 2 seasons at the school then the coach you hired to replace Moorhead whether it’s Mike Leach or Anyone Else if they have posted a record of…
2 – 6
…you will find your ass squarely on the Hot Seat and the 2 – 6 Bulldogs have left to play in 2020…
…in a game that Gus Malzahn cannot lose because if Malzhan does lose to this Totally Pitiful Mississippi State Team on December 12 there’s a very good chance that Malzahn will be fired so we don’t see Auburn losing this game…but they could….it’s Freaking Gus Malzahn!
If Mississippi State does lose to Auburn to fall to 2 – 7 in 2020 then Mike Leach will enter the 2021 season on of the Hottest Hot Seats in America and Oh how the Bulldogs football program has fallen since Dan Mullen took off for Florida but it fell Helluva Lot Further when the Pirate showed-up and do we think Mike Leach gives 2 Damn Rips about anything but his Own Precious Ass?
No…Mike Leach is in our opinion one of the Most Selfish Human Beings on the Earth and like his “Hero” Mike loves talking about how “Tough” he is and “War” and all kinds of other Damn Nonsense but has Mike Leach or his “Hero” spent one nanosecond serving in the US Military?
Of course not….just 2 Candy Asses love talking “Tough” but asses go running like Damn Cowards when things get “Tough” like all the other Damn Cowards that block people on Twitter that dare disagree with their Precious Asses!
10. Jeff Brohm, Purdue – The last 2 seasons Jeff Brohm has been paid…
2019: $5.35M 2020: $5.55M
….for a Total of $10.9M and in the last 2 seasons Brohm has posted records of…
Overall: 6 – 11
Big Ten: 5 – 9
…..and one would think if you going to be paid almost $11M Dollars you would get your football team to show-up and play football and yet the Boilermakers look like one of the…
Worst Coached Teams in Power 5 Conference Football
…and are now on a 3 Game Losing Streak with games left against…
Nebraska At Indiana
No way this Purdue team beats Indiana in 2020 but can they beat a…
Pitiful and Mediocre Nebraska Team at home on Saturday?
Who knows because both Nebraska and Purdue are…
2 of the Worst Coached Teams in Power 5 Conference Football
As we head into the 2020 Thanksgiving Weekend the American People have Lost the Plot in slowing down a Corona Virus that is easy to stop if you follow just a few simple rules and with a President, Congress, and US Gov’t that has almost Totally Checked-Out and to that we can only say…
Stay Safe Out There Folks Because There Is No Leader in America that cares whether your ass is Dead or Alive!
1. Derek Mason, Vanderbilt – Vandy is not an easy job to win games at but one would think that over 7 seasons a coach would win more than…
10 SEC Conference Games
…and with Derek Mason’s records at Vandy now at…
Overall: 27 – 54
SEC: 10 – 45
…and games left against…
At Mizzou At Georgia Tennessee
…time is running short in 2020 to get 1 SEC win this season although Vandy has shown fight this season and give Mason credit for that!
We have no idea what the Expectations are at Vanderbilt, but we been to a half-dozen or so Vandy football games in Nashville and we talked to plenty of folks around Music City and our opinion is that generally the Administration at Vanderbilt University really…
Just doesn’t care whether Vandy football wins or not!
That’s Pitiful….Just Pitiful!
2. Jim Harbaugh, Michigan – How exactly does a Michigan team coached by Jim Harbaugh in Jimmy’s 70 th game at the school in his 6 th season on the job in Ann Arbor need 3 overtimes to beat a Rutgers team with a first-year Head Coach that took over a Damn Disaster we haven’t a Damn Clue and yet…
In Jim Harbaugh’s 70 th game at Michigan..at MICHIGAN…he needed 3 overtimes to beat Rutgers….FREAKING RUTGERS!
Since Ohio State beat Michigan 62 – 39 to end the 2018 reason season Michigan’s records under Jim Harbaugh now stand at…
Overall: 11 – 7
Big 10: 8 – 6
….and it looks to us that Jim Harbaugh has just accepted that Michigan will forever play 2 nd fiddle behind the Buckeyes so what exactly is the point in chasing Excellence when you can make $8M+ a season being just merely Average As Hell?
Hell…if Michigan is willing to pay someone $8M+ a year for Average As Hell the all the Worthless As Hell Average Human Beings in America…
Apply for Jobs at the University of Michigan = Where Average As Hell is Richly Rewarded!
Well…when your record the last 2 seasons at Michigan is 11 – 7 Overall and 8 – 6 in the Big 10 make that….
With games left against…
Penn State Maryland At Ohio State
….we will be fascinated to what Blue does in this spot because if they lose to this Pitiful Penn State team and a Maryland team that shouldn’t be able to stay on the field with Michigan then we will know that Jim Harbaugh has…
Totally and Completely Given Up in Ann Arbor
3. Kevin Sumlin, Arizona – We have a rule at our Ad Agency that we never hire someone from another Agency that has just left that Agency under questionable circumstances = They Totally Failed…and with a big buyout (which is easy to find out in the world of Ad Agencies) and we still don’t have a clue why Arizona hire Kevin Sumlin right after he got fired at Texas A&M with a Massive Buyout because what in Hell exactly is Sumlin’s motivation to turn Arizona into a big winner?
Personal Pride maybe? Sorry, if we were in an Athletic Director position we are not in a zillion years hiring Kevin Sumlin at Arizona or Any Other School in the wake of him getting fired at Texas A&M because the #1 thing we would be looking at for in a Head Coach is…
Hunger! A Deep Hunger to build and maintain a Winning Football Program that focuses like a laser beam on…
Graduating Players Building Winners = Winning Human Beings Winning Games Playing for Championships
Now in his 3 rd season at Arizona Kevin Sumlin has records of…
Overall: 9 – 17
Pac-12: 6 – 14
…and the Wildcats have left…
At UCLA Colorado Arizona State
If all the above games do get played we expect Arizona to finish at 0 – 5 in 2020 and if the folks in Tucson willing to accept that Pitiful Mediocrity then….
Shame On Them and Please….Who in the Hell Raised Your Sorry Asses because for Damn Sure it wasn’t Real Americans!
Winners Do Not Tolerate Pitiful Mediocrity!
4. Jeremy Pruitt, Tennessee – Talking about Pitiful Mediocrity take a gander at Jeremy Pruitt’s records in his 3 rd year at Tennessee >
Overall: 15 – 17
SEC: 9 – 14
Reality is Phil Fulmer could have hired…
Any Damn Random Person Off the Streets of Knoxville
….and He or She could have posted records of…
Overall: 15 – 17
SEC: 9 – 14
….coaching the Vols the last 3 seasons and here’s the benefit of hiring most Anyone off the streets of Knoxville, Tennessee instead of Jeremy Pruitt >
That person would not believe that their ass is God on Earth and be a Worthless Pompous Arrogant Ass Punk like Jeremy Pruitt!
In lots of ways Phil Fulmer and Jeremy Pruitt are perfect for each other because both are…
Pompous Arrogant Ass Punks that believe their asses spun-up the Earth and that everyone else on the planet is Pitiful Peons and should get down on their knees and kiss their Precious Asses and where your ass gets raised to come to believe such Un-American Nonsense is beyond our understanding…just way beyond it!
There’s not a Chance in Hell we allow our kids to play for Jeremy Pruitt today or Phil Fulmer in the past because we want our kids to be Decent Human Beings….Not Pompous Arrogant Ass Punks that when they Win want all the credit…and when their Worthless Asses Lose…blame everyone but themselves!
Don’t send your kids to Tennessee folks….if you love them that is…in our humble opinion!
With the Vanderbilt game now cancelled because of Corona Virus the now 2 – 5 Vols have left games against…
Florida Texas A&M At Vanderbilt
…and the way Vandy is playing these days that could be 3 losses to end the 2020 season and if that happens the folks in Knoxville with $$$ would be smart to fire…
Fulmer and Pruitt
..and hire a couple of people in the AD and Head Coach positions that actually know what the Hell they are doing and are not…
Worthless Pompous Arrogant Ass Punks!
5. Scott Frost, Nebraska – Amazingly Scott Frost said he did not see the Huskers Pitiful Performance against Illinois become because why exactly…
Nebraska beat a Pitiful Penn State Team that the Coaches Hot Seat Flag Football Team could Whip the Hell Out of and Make Them Like It?
Is Scott Frost even alive and breathing on this planet?
His Nebraska football team has NOT Hit Damn Anybody in the last 3 seasons and if there is a Softer Football Team in America than the Huskers in 2020 or any other year then we have not seen them playing and that includes the several dozen Powder Puff Women Teams we have seen play games over the years!
If the Nebraska at Iowa game is played on Friday we are going to tell you what is going to happen >
The Once Mighty Nebraska Cornhuskers are Going To Get Their Asses Physically Whipped because Iowa hits harder than Every Damn Powder Puff Team in America and Every Damn Powder Puff Team in America is Tougher than Scott Frost’s Nebraska Football Team!
The 1 – 3 Huskers have left in 2020…
At Iowa At Purdue Minnesota
….which looks like at least 2 and maybe 3 losses but let’s say Nebraska finishes at 2 – 5 in 2020 that would leave Frost’s Big Ten record in 3 seasons at…
8 – 17
That is acceptable to anyone in the Great State of Nebraska?
If it is Shut Down Nebraska Football because there is No Longer Any Damn Reason For It To Exist!
6. Justin Fuente, Virginia Tech – A Virginia Tech alum buddy of ours when asked about what he thinks about Hokies Football responded….
“What is there to think? It’s been average as Hell for years and it ain’t getting any better anytime soon because no one in Blacksburg cares that Va. Tech football is average as Hell.”
Well said and in his 5 th season at Virginia Tech Head Coach Justin Fuente is sitting on records of…
Overall: 37 – 25
ACC: 24 – 16
…and after 3 straight losses to Liberty, Miami, and Pitt it looks like the 4 – 5 Hokies are on the verge of Totally Quitting with…
….left to play in 2020.
Will someone in Blacksburg, Virginia get tired of Va. Tech football being “average as Hell?”
Not likely because reality is just like in other places across America the folks in Blacksburg willing to accept Pitiful Mediocrity and that is Shameful….it’s is So Damn Shameful!
7. Steve Campbell, South Alabama – With the home loss to South Alabama on Saturday Head Coach Steve Campbell’s records at USA fell to…
Overall: 8 – 26
Sun Belt: 5 – 17
…and the last South Alabama Head Coach Joey Jones was fired after posting the below records…
Overall: 52 – 50
Sun Belt: 18 – 29
….so surely Campbell’s records are not acceptable to the folks at USA…Right?
The 3 – 6 Jaguars have left in 2020….
At Arkansas State Troy
…which are 2 very tough games so a 3 -8 is real possibility in Steve Campbell’s 3 rd year at South Alabama which wouldn’t be acceptable to the folks at USA….Right?
It wouldn’t be acceptable to us!
8. Dino Babers, Syracuse – A College Football Team is a very fragile thing in this Age of Social Media and Woke Folks Everywhere You Look and a Head Coach can easily loose his current team and an entire program by just a couple of what seem like innocent mistakes, and in our opinion Dino Babers got on the wrong side of a couple of things after the Orange’s 10 – 3 season in 2018 which has snowballed itself into a 1 – 8 record in 2020 with games still left against…
NC State At Notre Dame
We have seen and read about Head Coaches losing their teams and in every single instance when the Head Coach was able to turn things around he did something very drastic to change the conversation, such as Paul “Bear” Bryant switching to the wishbone offense after records of…
6 – 5 6 – 5 – 1
….in the 1969 + 1970 seasons which led to a 1970s decade dominated by Alabama with 8 SEC Conference Titles and 3 National Championships.
If we were advising Dino Babers, and assuming Dino is able to hold onto his job at Syracuse to coach again in 2021, we would tell him he’s got to do something to change direction and inner-conversations within the football team and if he doesn’t what has happened the last two years will continue on into the 2021 season.
We have personally seen the above happen, a 180 degree change to turn things around successfully, with a football team, a company, and on an US Navy ship and each time the Current or New Leader/Coach focused on moving the Team or Company or Ship in a new direction that everyone could get behind which became such a focus that it leaves little time for questioning what has happened in the past or is happening in the now until things got better. Also, this is not something you can do by saying, “We are going in a new direction,” but rather this something that is done on such a large scale, like Bryant’s changing to a wishbone offense, that it becomes almost all-encompassing to everyone involved.
9. Les Miles, Kansas – The 0 – 7 Kansas Jayhawks host the 3 – 4 TCU Horned Frogs which is a game that we give KU little chance to win just like we give KU little chance to win their last 2 games against…
At Texas Tech Texas
…and if KU does end the 2020 season at 0 – 10 then that would leave Les Miles records at….
Overall: 3 – 18
Big 12: 1 – 16
…and if that is what the folks at Kansas were expecting when they hired Les Miles then….
Shame On Them for Expecting and Accepting Below Pitiful Mediocrity!
10. Mike Leach, Mississippi State – With the loss to Georgia on Saturday that drops Mike Leach’s record at Mississippi State to….
2 – 5
….and the folks in Starkville fired a coach in Joe Moorhead who in 2 seasons posted records of…
8 – 5 6 – 7
…so of course they see a 2 – 5 record with games still left against…
At Ole Miss Mizzou Auburn
The Georgia Defense is now so porous against Attacking Offenses we were not surprised that the Bulldogs were able to score 24 points on the Dawgs, but can MSU continue scoring in their last 3 games is the question and will have a big say on whether Mike Leach will end up squarely on the Hot Seat going into the 2021 season or if he can begin to turn this ship before it takes on too much H2O that it becomes un-turnable!
It may not be discernable to many but there are some teams playing Excellent Football in 2020 and there are some teams that are Totally Mailing-It-In in 2020 and those in the latter category have their Head Coaches either on or headed to the Hot Seat! As the late Great Andy Grove used to say….
….and thus it’s time for Head Coaches to embrace the turbulence they now find themselves in instead of complaining, whining, bitching, and generally doing lots of crying about how tough they got it since the 15+ Combat Vets at Coaches Hot Seat who did multiple deployments on the oceans of the world Haze Grey and Underway in the US Navy all over the world for 6+ months away from America including Operation Desert Storm in 1991…
Don’t Want To Hear Your Worthless Damn Crybaby Excuses!
Toughen Your Damn Asses Up and Quit Your Damn Crying Your Prima Donna Millionaire Crybabies!
Let’s bring out the Great Johnny Cash to give these Hot Seat Coaches Hell!
1. Derek Mason, Vanderbilt – Vandy has played some decent football in 2020 losing by 5 points to Texas A&M, 7 points to Mississippi State, and 3 points to Kentucky but….
0 – 6 is 0 – 6
…and Vandy has left in 2020 games against…
Florida Tennessee At Georgia At Missouri
That looks like 0 – 10 to us and with Derek Mason’s records now at…
Overall: 27 – 53
SEC: 10 – 44
…we cannot imagine Mason could survive a winless 2020 season pandemic or not but then if we were running Vandy Athletics we been going NUTS long ago about the state of Vandy Football on all levels from Talent to that Beyond Pitiful Stadium the team plays in!
2. Jim Harbaugh, Michigan – In the past 40+ years we have seen lots of college football teams get their asses whipped but we have never seen a team just…
Flat Out Quit and Get Their Manhood Taken Away
….which Wisconsin made and did to Michigan last Saturday in Ann Arbor!
We have some opinions on why Jimmy Harbaugh has Totally Lost the Plot at Michigan which we will keep to ourselves for now, but since Ohio State whipped Blue to end the 2018 season the Michigan Football program has been in a Totally Free-Fall posting records of..
Overall: 10 – 10
Big Ten: 7 – 6
Michigan now at 1 – 3 on the season has games left against…
At Rutgers Penn State Maryland At Ohio State
…and there’s at least a 50 – 50 chance now that Michigan Football Players will…
Totally Damn Quit
..and finish the season with 4 straight losses to finish at 1 – 7 which of course would lead to the end of the Harbaugh era in Ann Arbor which will also probably happen if Blue splits their last 2 games.
Great Luck Jimmy and you better Damn not lose to this Rutgers team which just got beat by…wait for it…Illinois!
3. Kevin Sumlin, Arizona – Arizona had USC beat in their first game of the season and should have beaten the Trojans but again Kevin Sumlin let a win get away and that leaves Sumlin’s records in his 3 rd season at Arizona at…
Overall: 9 – 16
Pac-12: 6 – 13
….and if those records are acceptable at Arizona now when Rich Rodriguez got fired after posting a 7 – 6 record in his last year in Tucson then Arizona Football no longer exists as a Real Entity on the Earth!
4. Les Miles, Kansas – We haven’t a Damn Clue why Kansas hired Les Miles but then we still don’t have a Damn Clue why Kansas hire Charlie Weis and yet Miles in his 2 nd season on the job his records are….
Overall: 3 – 15
Big 12: 1 – 13
…and the 0 – 7 Jayhawks have left in 2020 >
Texas TCU At Texas Tech
Got 0 – 10 in Lawrence?
5. Jeremy Pruitt, Tennessee – Jeremy Pruitt has now coached 31 games at Tennessee and has posted a record of..
15 – 16
…and after 31 games at Tennessee the last head coach of the Vols Butch Jones had posted a record of…
15 – 16
In the next 25 games with the Vols Butch Jones posted a record of….
19 – 6
…before Butch Jones got fired in his 5 th season on the job and if Pruitt begins to fall behind Jones trajectory of Wins and Loses then he will be fired and we cannot imagine the money folks at Tennessee will allow current AD Phil Fulmer to hire the next head coach because the hiring of Pruitt will have been…
A Sub-Butch Jones Failure!
Tennessee is now 2 – 4 on the season and have left to play…
At Auburn At Vandy Florida Texas A&M
….and if the Vols go 1 – 3 in their last 4 games to finish at 3 – 7 then Jeremy Pruitt…
Should Be Fired and Will Be Fired….Right After Phil Fulmer is Fired!
That is if the money folks at Tennessee give 2 Damn Rips about the future success of Tennessee Football!
6. Clay Helton, USC – The USC Trojans barely beating Arizona State at home and Arizona on the road says more about the current state of USC Football and how far the Trojans have fallen under Helton who now barely beats Mediocre Teams which luckily for Helton the Pac-12 is full of these days!
The wobbly 2 – 0 Trojans have left on their 2020 schedule games against…
At Utah Colorado Washington State At UCLA
…with luckily for USC again the Utes with a reduced roster ravaged by Corona Virus which Kyle Whittingham doesn’t seem to have any control of with his football team but such is the Luck of Clay Helton!
If USC can finish at 4 – 2 on the season then Clay Helton will get another year of coaching the Trojans and that’s gotta be Knife to the Gut of the fans of USC Football….but finish at 3 – 3 and Clay Helton is DONE!
7. Justin Fuente, Virginia Tech – Since that 10 – 4 season in his first year at Virginia Tech Head Coach Justin Fuente has posted records of..
Overall: 27 – 20
ACC: 18 – 13
…which is Average Football in Blacksburg and the now 4 – 4 Hokies have games left against…
At Pitt Clemson Virginia
…which could be anything from 3 – 0 to 0 – 3 and therein lies the problem with Fuente’s tenure at Virginia Tech….
No one really knows what the Hell is coming next!
Virginia Tech should beat Pitt and Virginia and lose to Clemson to finish at 6 – 5 which will probably get Fuente another season….as hard as that is to believe for some of us!
Virginia Tech has become an Average Football Program and maybe the folks in Blacksburg just need to accept that FACT and move on down the road!
8. Scott Frost, Nebraska – The way Nebraska reacted after beating a Pitiful Penn State team at home you would have thought the Huskers won their first National Title since Dr. Tom retired but alas…
It was just beating a Pitiful Penn State Team folks!
The 1 – 2 Huskers have left to play in 2020….
Illinois At Iowa At Purdue Minnesota
…and if Nebraska fools around and loses to Illinois at home on Saturday with at Iowa and at Purdue up next Scott Frost could very well be coaching his last season as Head Coach of the Huskers!
Don’t lose to Illinois Scott!
9. Steve Campbell, South Alabama – Steve Campbell was hired to be the Head Coach at South Alabama before the 2018 season replacing Joey Jones who had posted records in 6 seasons with the Jaguars of..
Overall: 52 – 50
Sun Belt: 18 – 29
….and Steve Campbell in his 3 rd year on the job has posted records of…
Overall: 8 – 24
Sun Belt: 5 – 16
Clearly South Alabama has taken a step or two or three backwards under Campbell even as they have moved into a brand new football stadium and we can only wonder how long this will allowed to continue down the current path…not much longer….Right?
10. Dino Babers, Syracuse – Now at 1 – 7 on the season Syracuse hasn’t looked like much of a football team in 2020 with only a win over Georgia Tech on the board and with these games left to be played…
At Louisville NC State At Notre Dame
…there is a very good chance the Orangemen finish at 1 – 10 and that will be nothing short of a….
Complete Freaking Disaster in Dino Babers 5 th season at Syracuse
