Post Week 12 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

Give These Hot Seat Coaches Hell Johnny!

Thank You Mr. Cash!

Post Week 12 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

1.  Jimbo Fisher, Texas A&M > When you are sitting on a record of 37 - 21 in 5 seasons at Texas A&M which ain't good at all if anyone's asking one starts to wonder just what in the Hell is inside that Very Average Record and so we took at look it and Jimbo Fisher's...

Record against FBS Teams with .500+ Records in Year the Aggies played them is...wait for it...

17 - 20

The $86 Million Buyout Man has a record of 17 - 20 against FBS Teams with .500+ records!

If that doesn't say it all then what the Hell does exactly?

Geez...Texas A&M has paid Jimbo Fisher around $40 Million Dollars and his ass is sitting on a record of...

17 and Freaking 20 against FBS Teams with .500+ Records!

Yep…this will all be corrected by continuing this Damn Nonsense for another year!

2.  Pretty Boy Patty Boy Pat Fitzgerald, Northwestern > Ole Pretty Boy Patty Boy Pat Fitzgerald whose ass have a hard time getting a job Shoveling Shit if not on the Northwestern campus in our humble opinion not that Pretty Boy Patty Boy have the Guts to take a job in the Real World where your ass actually has got to perform to get paid lost another game on Saturday which drops the Non-Fighting Candy Ass Wildcats to 1 - 10 on the season with only a game against Illinois left on the docket...the High Tea + Crumpets Docket that is!

What happens to a football program when you go Total Candy Ass?

Northwestern Football right now is the answer to that question so any coaches out there thinking of following Pretty Boy Patty Boy down the Yellow Lollipop Non-Brick Road of Total Candy Ass don't do it...Just Don't Do It!

3.  David Shaw, Stanford > Only David Shaw down by 10 points at the end of a football game would run a field goal kicker onto the field to try a meaningless field goal in the Candy Ass Game between Stanford and Cal and what a Perfect Summary for Stanford Football the last 4 seasons...

Kicking A Meaningless Field Goal for what reason exactly?

To sooth the egos of Worthless Candy Asses that wouldn't know how to play the Game of Football on the best day of their lives?

The Last 4 Seasons David Shaw's record at Stanford is now...wait for it...

14 - 27

Stanford coulda have hired Any Damn Drunken Rodeo Clown who fell off the Cal Train at the Palo Alto Station and made him Head Football Coach at Stanford and done better than that but then Any Damn Drunken Rodeo Clown wouldn't have turned Stanford Football into Total Candy Asses who don't know how to...

Block, Tackle, Hit, Run, Do Damn Anything that has Anything To Do With the Game of Football in America!

To say that Stanford Football is a Damn Disgrace to Stanford, to College Football, and to the American Republic and its People is Self-Evident but what may not be Self-Evident to folks that don't follow Stanford Football closely is that in the Spring of 2019 David Shaw and the Stanford Coaching Staff were warned if they turned the Cardinal Football Players into Total Candy Asses it would be a Total Disaster and guess what happened...

Yep...A Total Freaking Damn Disaster!

Shameful....Just Damn Shameful....on Every Damn Imaginable Level!

4.  Danny Gonzales, New Mexico > We got to see New Mexico play football this past Friday night and now we know why Danny Gonzalez has been a Total Disaster in Albuquerque...

New Mexico is one of the Most Fundamentally Unsound Football Teams we have seen in 40+ years of watching College Football

...and now you know why Gonzales is sitting on a record of....

7 - 23

....in 3 seasons with the Lobos!

Surely this Total Disaster cannot continue!

5.  Neal Brown, West Virginia > West Virginia has a proud football tradition going back for decades now and Neal Brown in 4 seasons at WVU is now sitting on records of...

Overall > 21 - 25

Big 12 > 13 - 21

...and thus it's Self-Evident why West Virginia will have a New Head Football Coach in 2023!

6.  Butch Jones, Arkansas State > The folks at Arkansas State are mighty proud of how far they have come with their football program in recent years and rightly so and thus Butch Jones in 2 seasons on the job at ASU sitting on records of....

Overall > 5 - 17

Sun Belt > 3 - 12

...has got to mean that Butch is about to get his ass run out of Jonesboro....Right?

7.  Philip Montgomery, Tulsa > Ole Philip has had a nice...make that Yo-Yo run....at Tulsa in the last 8 seasons posting....

4 Winning Seasons in 8 Years on the job

...and records of...

Overall > 42 - 53

AAC: 27 - 34

Surely this cannot continue at a place that is proud of their football as the folks in Tulsa are of theirs....Right?

Maybe it can...if you willing to Accept Average As Hell!

8.  Jeff Hafley, Boston College > After two seasons of 6 - 5 and 6 - 6 for Jeff Hafley at Boston College which is Average at Best at BC we expected the Eagles to be a little better in 2022 but they have been a Total Disaster and after a blowout loss at the hands of Notre Dame where it looked like the BC players were hardly trying the Eagles are 3 - 8 with only a game at reeling Syracuse left on the schedule.

Will Boston College bother to show up to play against Syracuse in a game they could easily win?

If not then Hafley should be fired right after the game!

9.  Mario Cristobal, Miami > Against a Clemson Team that has given up 20+ points in 6 of its 8 ACC Conference Games in 2022 Miami was only able to score 10 points and couldn't get even 100 yards of Total Offense and like we said weeks ago in the Coaches Hot Seat Blog...

Either Mario Cristobal will get his hands off the Miami Offense and let the Canes run something above a Pee Wee Level Offense or Mario's ass will be run right out of Miami!

The Canes are now 5 - 6 on the season with none of those wins coming against FBS teams with .500+ records and they got a game against Pittsburgh at home left to try and get to even Pitiful Bowl Eligible and if Miami cannot find a way to rally and win this game at home then Mario Cristobal will start the 2023 season on one of the Hottest Preseason Hot Seat in recent College Football History and will be at risk of getting his ass run right out of South Florida after only 2 years on the job if he posted another sub .500 record!

Don't lose to Pitt now Mario!

10.  Jedd Fisch, Arizona > Arizona has looked better in Year 2 than Year 1 under Jedd Fisch but Facts Are Stubborn Things is what John Adams is to have reported to have said and in two years on the job Jedd Fisch's records at Arizona now stand at >

Overall > 5 - 17

Pac-12 > 3 - 13

Recent Head Coaches Records after 2 seasons at Arizona >

Kevin Sumlin > 9 - 15
Rich Rodriguez > 16 - 10
Mike Stoops> 6 - 16

Can Arizona beat Arizona State on Saturday so that Jedd Fisch can at least match Mike Stoops 6 wins in his first two seasons at Arizona?

We sure don't know the answer to that question but win or lose to the Sun Devils it's still....

We of this Congress and this administration, will be remembered in spite of ourselves. No personal significance, or insignificance, can spare one or another of us. The fiery trial through which we pass, will light us down, in honor or dishonor, to the latest generation." Second State of the Union Address, December 1, 1862

At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide." Lycecum Address, 1838

And

"Slavery is founded in the selfishness of man's nature - opposition to it, in his love of justice. These principles are an eternal antagonism; and when brought into collision so fiercely, as slavery extension brings them, shocks, and throes, and convulsions must ceaselessly follow. Repeal the Missouri Compromise - repeal all compromises - repeal the Declaration of Independence - repeal all past history, you still can not repeal human nature. It still will be the abundance of man's heart, that slavery extension is wrong; and out of the abundance of his heart, his mouth will continue to speak."

And

"Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate, we can not consecrate, we can not hallow, this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us - that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion - that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain - that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom - and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."

The Gettysburg Address, November 19, 1863

Lincoln's War, The Untold Story of American's Greatest President as Commander in Chief by Geoffrey Perret

Here is a great excerpt from that book that happened just after the First Battle of Bull Run, August 1861:

"Dozens of regiments had set up impromptu around Fort Corcoran, on Arlington Heights. Every day these canvas congeries trembled like leaves in the wind as fresh rumors of an impending Confederate attack. And every day Lincoln heard fresh stories of demoralized troops, mutinous regiments, poor discipline. Some regiments were entitled to - and clamoring for - an immediate discharge, their ninety-day service complete. The War Department's officers seemed to busy for the burdensome task of mustering them out. Unchecked, however, mutinous sentiments could spread through camps like a virulent disease.

Lincoln decided to see for himself, and Seward went with him. A few days after Bull Run, they rode across the Potomac in an open carriage on an impromptu visit to the troops. What greeted them was redoubts spreading across the landscape, tents sprouting like mushrooms in nearly every direction, dusty roads, a cross-hatching of cart tracks, men milling or lolling about, few signs of order or purpose. Yet the District, on edge for its safety, has more than enough men to defend it - if the men chose.

As the carriage rattled along towards Fort Corcoran, a red-bearded colonel strode up: William Tecumseh Sherman. He had commanded a brigade at Bull Run, superbly. Sherman asked if the President had come to see the troops. "Yes," said Lincoln. "We heard that you had got over the big scare and we thought we would come over and see the boys."

Sherman got into the carriage, giving the driver directions to a camp at the top of a small hill. Sitting next to Lincoln, he asked if the President intended to speak to the men. "I would like to," said Lincoln.

Sherman said he no objection to that, but he did not want cheering, "No hurrahing, no humbug. We had enough of it before Bull Run to spoil any set of them." None worse than the 69 th New York, filled with Irishmen angry at not being discharged. Sherman had rebuked one of the officers of lax discipline.

Standing in the carriage, Lincoln gave an impromptu talk to Sherman's troops: bravery, sacrifice, gratitude, a glorious future. The men began to cheer, but he held up his hand. "Don't cheer boys, I confess I rather like it myself, but Colonel Sherman says it is not military, and I guess we had better defer to his opinion."

Closing his impromptu peroration, Lincoln said that as Commander in Chief, he was determined that every man should be treated exactly as the law required: his indirect promise that those entitled to a discharge would soon have one. As the carriage moved on, a young officer ran after it, calling out piteously, "Mr. Lincoln! Mr. Lincoln!"

Lincoln ordered the driver to stop. Here was the officer of the 69 th New York whom Sherman had criticized, panting hard. "Mr. President, I have a cause of grievance. This morning I went to speak to Colonel Sherman, and he threatened to shoot me."

"I told him Mr. President, that if he refused to obey my order, I would shoot him on the spot," said Sherman. "And I here repeat it, sir, that if I remain in command here, and he or any other man refuses to obey my orders, I'll shoot him on the spot."

Lincoln bent forward. "My lad, if I were you, and he threatened to shoot, I would not trust him, for I believe he would do it!" The troops, until then sympathetic to the officer, howled with laughter.

Both Seward and Lincoln were impressed by the comparative tidiness of the camps of Sherman's regiments. "This is the first bright moment I've experienced since the battle," Lincoln told Sherman before riding off. From his own military experience, he knew that neatness and cleanliness is an army spelled discipline; neglect was a signal of trouble to come."

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Sunday, November 27, 2022 - Calvin Coolidge

"After all, the chief business of the American people is business. They are profoundly concerned with producing, buying, selling, investing and prospering in the world."

And

"All growth depends upon activity. There is no development physically or intellectually without effort, and effort means work."

And

"I have found it advisable not to give too much heed to what people say when I am trying to accomplish something of consequence. Invariably they proclaim it can't be done. I deem that the very best time to make the effort."

And

"If I had permitted my failures, or what seemed to me at the time a lack of success, to discourage me I cannot see any way in which I would ever have made progress."

And

"Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers. It may not be difficult to store up in the mind a vast quantity of face within a comparatively short time, but the ability to form judgments requires the severe discipline of hard work and the tempering heat of experience and maturity."

And

"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated failures. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.  The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."

And

"Parties do not maintain themselves. They are maintained by effort. The government is not self-existent. It is maintained by the effort of those who believe in it. The people of America believe in American institutions, the American form of government and the American method of transacting business."

And

"I favor the policy of economy, not because I wish to save money, but because I wish to save people. The men and women of this country who toil are the ones who bear the cost of the Government. Every dollar that we carelessly waste means that their life will be so much the more meager. Every dollar that we prudently save means that their life will be so much the more abundant. Economy is idealism in its most practical form."

And

"The chief business of the American people is business."

And

"If all men are created equal, that is final. If they are endowed with inalienable rights, that is final. If governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, that is final."

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Saturday, November 26, 2022 - Woody Hayes

"I've had smarter people around me all my life, but I haven't run into one yet that can outwork me. And if they can't outwork you, then smarts aren’t going to do them much good. That's just the way it is. And if you believe that and live by it, you'd be surprised at how much fun you can have."

And

"A man is always better than he thinks."

And

And

And

"I don't apologize for anything. When I make a mistake, I take the blame and go on from there. I just despise to lose, and that has taken a man of mediocre ability and made a pretty good coach out of him."

And

"Just remember one thing. I can do your job, but you can't do mine." - to an OSU professor

And

"I love football. I think it is most wonderful game in world and I despise to lose."

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Friday, November 25, 2022 - Gale Sayers

"I learned that if you want to make it bad enough, no matter how bad it is, you can make it."

And

"There comes a time when you have to stand up and be counted."

And

"Our young people look up to us. Let us not let them down. Our young people need us. Saving them will make heroes of us all."

And

"I don't care to be remembered as the man who scored six touchdowns in a game. I want to be remembered as a winner in life."

And

“There's no way I would have made the Hall of Fame or set any of the records I did by myself. No matter how many yards I gained, whether it was three or 300, someone had to be there to make the block. Well, I played football, but you guys are out here giving a lot to make lives and to save lives. You need each other as much as we need you. Please continue to do what you're doing.”

"It is delightfully easy to thank God for the grace we ourselves have received, but it requires great grace to thank God always for the grace given to others."  James Smith

And

"Thanksgiving is an emotional holiday. People travel thousands of miles to be with people they only see once a year. And then discover once a year is way too often."  Johnny Carson

And

"Thanksgiving is so called because we are all so thankful that it only comes once a year."  P. J. O'Rourke

And

"Thanksgiving Day, a function which originated in New England two or three centuries ago when those people recognized that they really had something to be thankful for - annually, not oftener - if they had succeeded in exterminating their neighbors, the Indians, during the previous twelve months instead of getting exterminated by their neighbors, the Indians. Thanksgiving Day became a habit, for the reason that in the course of time, as the years drifted on, it was perceived that the exterminating had ceased to be mutual and was all on the white man's side, consequently on the Lord's side; hence it was proper to thank the Lord for it and extend the usual annual compliments."  Mark Twain

And

"We can always find something to be thankful for, and there may be reasons why we ought to be thankful for even those dispensations which appear dark and frowning."  Albert Barnes

And

"Thanksgiving is nothing if not a glad and reverent lifting of the heart to God in honor and praise for His goodness." Robert Casper Lintner

The Desolate Wilderness, Editorial, Wall Street Journal

"Here beginneth the chronicle of those memorable circumstances of the year 1620, as recorded by Nathaniel Morton , keeper of the records of Plymouth Colony, based on the account of William Bradford , sometime governor thereof:

So they left that goodly and pleasant city of Leyden, which had been their resting-place for above eleven years, but they knew that they were pilgrims and strangers here below, and looked not much on these things, but lifted up their eyes to Heaven, their dearest country, where God hath prepared for them a city (Heb. XI, 16), and therein quieted their spirits.

When they came to Delfs-Haven they found the ship and all things ready, and such of their friends as could not come with them followed after them, and sundry came from Amsterdam to see them shipt, and to take their leaves of them. One night was spent with little sleep with the most, but with friendly entertainment and Christian discourse, and other real expressions of true Christian love.

he next day they went on board, and their friends with them, where truly doleful was the sight of that sad and mournful parting, to hear what sighs and sobs and prayers did sound amongst them; what tears did gush from every eye, and pithy speeches pierced each other's heart, that sundry of the Dutch strangers that stood on the Key as spectators could not refrain from tears. But the tide (which stays for no man) calling them away, that were thus loath to depart, their Reverend Pastor, falling down on his knees, and they all with him, with watery cheeks commended them with the most fervent prayers unto the Lord and His blessing; and then with mutual embraces and many tears they took their leaves one of another, which proved to be the last leave to many of them.

Being now passed the vast ocean...."

And the Fair Land, Editorial, Wall Street Journal

"Anyone whose labors take him into the far reaches of the country, as ours lately have done, is bound to mark how the years have made the land grow fruitful.

This is indeed a big country, a rich country, in a way no array of figures can measure and so in a way past belief of those who have not seen it. Even those who journey through its Northeastern complex, into the Southern lands, across the central plains and to its Western slopes can only glimpse a measure of the bounty of America.

And a traveler cannot but be struck on his journey by the thought that this country, one day, can be even greater. America, though many know it not, is one of the great underdeveloped countries of the world; what it reaches for exceeds by far what it has grasped.

So the visitor returns thankful for much of what he has seen, and, in spite of everything, an optimist about what his country might be. Yet the visitor, if he is to make an honest report, must also note the air of unease that hangs everywhere.

For the traveler, as travelers have been always....."

Are you not ashamed of this? And if the person with whom I an arguing says: Yes, but I do care: I do not depart or let him go at once; I interrogate and examine and cross-examine him, and if I think that he has no virtue, but only says that he has, I reproach him with overvaluing the greater, and undervaluing the less. ...For this is the command of God, as I would have you know..."

Post Week 11 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

Give These Hot Seat Coaches Hell Johnny!

Thank You Mr. Cash!

Post Week 11 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

1.  Jimbo Fisher, Texas A&M > You really gotta wonder about the Simple Intelligence of the people who work at Texas A&M University who don't seem to have any understanding of what Texas A&M stands for or should be projecting into the world, because if anyone at Texas A&M had a Damn Clue about what Texas A&M stands for and is they would have NEVER hired...

Dennis Franchione
Mike Sherman
Kevin Sumlin
Jimbo Fisher

....to follow RC Slocum as the Head Coach of the Aggies!

There is a serious problem at Texas A&M that extends far beyond the Total Damn Disaster that is Jimbo Fisher's football program in Aggieland and it is the so-called Leadership at A&M and the Top Boosters not knowing...

Just what in the Hell that Texas A&M University is all about!

It's not about Jimbo Fisher who has created a Selfish, Self-Consumed, and Toxic environment with Aggies Football and was allowed to do so in our opinion in the blind pursuit of a National Championship but here's a Newsflash for you Damn Morons running Texas A&M and sit in those fancy suites at Kyle Field that...

Don't Know Your Asses From the Side of a Barn

...and proved it by first hiring Jimbo Fisher, second giving Jimbo a Totally Absurd Contract, and third extending that contract last year when a Total Gift from Heaven was sent to you and LSU wanting to hire Fisher that got your Totally Stupid Asses out of the that Totally Stupid and Absurd Contract with Jimbo!

Very Simply...the so-called Leadership at Texas A&M and Top Alums + Boosters are...

Very Stupid People that are not qualified to run a lemonade stand forget about a Great Institution like Texas A&M University and especially oversee the Aggies Football Program and it's been this way for 2 Damn Decades now!

Reality is if you don't count the Corona Virus Season of 2020 which was Total Horseshit Football from start to finish Jimbo Fisher's Win/Loss Records at Texas A&M are >

Overall > 28 - 20

SEC > 14 - 18

Anyone with a 2+ IQ would look in the mirror and admit they are Total Damn Morons and raise the $86M and buyout Jimbo Fisher before Aggies Football is Totally Destroyed but what you gotta understand...

The folks that run and support Texas A&M University are...

Too Big of a Damn Cowards to admit the Truth that they are Damn Morons and even if they did run Jimbo's ass out of College Station none of them have the have the Simple Common Sense to go hire a...

Real Football Coach!

...to replace Jimbo!

Not A Damn One of Them!

2.  Pretty Boy Patty Boy Pat Fitzgerald, Northwestern > Pretty Boy Patty Boy and his Non-Fighting Wildcats got their asses handed to them again...

This time by that Powerhouse Football Program Minnesota

....to drop to 1 - 9 on the season and what can we say about Pretty Boy Patty Boy that we haven't already said this season beyond Pretty Boy Patty Boy...

Those are some mighty Pretty Non-Football Players you got there at Northwestern

...and we would recommend you not get your team into a disagreement with the Northwestern Chess Club because those Boys....

Would Whip You and Your Non-Fighting Players Asses and Make You Like It!

Anyone out there in America wants a coach that can turn your football team into a bunch of...

Damn Candy Asses

...too give Ole Pretty Boy Patty Boy up in Evanston a call because he's your Boy for sure!

Northwestern at 1 - 9 has left in 2022 >

At Purdue
Illinois

Got 1 - 11 Pretty Boy Patty Boy?

Your ass is about to have it Son so Pass the Tea and Crumpets because it's High Tea time in Evanston which is pretty much around the clock these days in Evanston!

3.  David Shaw, Stanford > What can you do but laugh at what a Total Laughingstock that Non-Football Stanford Cardinal program is now because for Damn Sure these Boys and that's what they are from David Shaw on down...

Just Boys without a Damn Clue about Life or Anything Else

...who are now a Total Joke in the Pac-12 just like Stanford Football was before Jimmy Harbaugh got to The Farm in 2007!

The Big Game is this coming Saturday with the #3 and #4 Hot Seat Coaches facing off and both their Sorry Asses should not be coaching in this game and should have already been fired because they are both a...

Damn Disgrace to Stanford and Cal

....because of ONE SIMPLE REASON >

Neither are Coaching Football nor anything close to the Game of Football!

Tidily-Winks maybe...but certainly not Football!

4.  Justin Wilcox, California > Justin Wilcox firing his Offensive Coordinator and Offensive Line Coach like Captain of the Titanic rearranging the deck chairs as the ship was going down but come on now...

No one really cares whether Cal Football wins or not beyond Wilcox being able to keep cashing a check that his ass does not deserve to cash because...

Wilcox has Failed as the Cal Head Coach with a 29 - 35 record in 6 seasons and he should be fired but come on now...

No one really cares about Cal Football or The Big Game because it is now little more than a Farce of a Game between 2 programs that no longer play the Game of Football!

It's Just Tidily-Winks!

5. Danny Gonzales, New Mexico > Dan Gonzales's records at New Mexico >

Overall > 7 - 22

MWC > 3 - 18

What else is there to say?

Nothing...Just Damn Nothing!

10 - 22

This is Very Simple Pretty Boy Patty Boy Fitzgerald, David Shaw, Kenny Boy >

If your ass doesn't Practice the Game of Football your ass will NOT play the Game of Football in the Games you Damn Morons! Go to practice on Monday and Hit, Tackle, Block, and actually Practice the Game of Football and your teams will Improve Immediately in the next game but keep up this Candy Ass Horseshit...and you will turn your players into even Bigger and More Worthless Candy Asses you Damn Morons!

Just Damn Idiots!

7.  Brent Venables, Oklahoma > While Northwestern, Stanford, and Navy have a very simple problem to fix...

They are all coached by Total Candy Asses who have turned their teams into Total Candy Asses

...the problem at Oklahoma is a little different and what it boils down to is this >

A Lack of Leadership by Brent Venables that has led his Sooners team to not believe in what he and his coaches are telling the players and the Oklahoma team plays like it doesn't believe in their coaches but then to call Oklahoma a "Team" is a stretch because it certainly isn't anything close to a "Team!"

We could fly to Norman on Monday and fix the problems with Oklahoma Football with 1 Meeting and 3 Practices of the team this week but that's not going to happen so either Brent Venables figures this out and quick or he's gonna get his ass run right out of Norman!

The now 5 - 5 Sooners have left in 2022 >

Oklahoma State
At Texas Tech

We Highly Recommend you beat the Pokes on Saturday Brent...Highly Recommend...because you lose this game Son the amount of HEAT that's gonna be brought by Sooners fans will be something neither you nor anyone on your staff has ever experienced before!

1 Meeting and 3 Practices and it's fixed...easily!

8.  Steve Sarkisian, Texas > We have always liked Steve Sarkisian a Helluva Lot going back to first time we ran into Sark when he joined Pete Carroll's staff at USC and Sark is a good guy who wants to do things right and we would like nothing more than for Sark to Win and Win Big at Texas but Son....

This is nothing short of a Total Damn Disaster at Texas right now!

Sarkisian is now 11 - 11 in 2 seasons at Texas and NO Head Coach who has started with a record like that in Texas Football History has been able to hang around for long so with the Horns now at 6 - 4 on the season with these games left >

At Kansas
Baylor

We recommend Sark win both those games and especially don't lose to Kansas on Saturday...NO don't do that Son!

9.  Tom Allen, Indiana > We take no joy having Tom Allen on the Hot Seat but Tom...the last 2 seasons Son...

Overall > 5 - 17

Big Ten > 1 - 15

...what in the Hell is going on here Tom?

The 3 - 7 Hoosiers have left in 2022 >

At Michigan State
Purdue

That's probably 3 - 9 after going 2 - 10 in 2021!

What in the Hell is going on here Tom?

Gotta be something and since we aren't at the Indiana practices to see what it is Tom you need to figure it out...what are you doing wrong because you are doing something wrong and you better Damn figure out what it is and quick!

10.  Neal Brown, West Virginia > Word is in the Hollars of West Virginia that the Power and $$$ Folks at WVU want to fire Neal Brown and we can see why with Neal sitting on these records >

Overall > 21 - 24

Big 12 > 13 - 0

That's not going to cut it at West Virginia and with WVU now at 4 - 6 with these games left >

Kansas State
At Oklahoma State

We would guess that it would take West Virginia winning both their remaining games to just give Brown a chance of hanging onto this job!

This was my first conscious perception of an abstract idea.  For a long time I was still ... trying to find a meaning for "love" in the light of this new idea. The sun had been under a cloud all day, and there had been brief showers; but suddenly the sun broke forth in all its southern splendour.  Again I asked my teacher, "Is this not love?"

"Love is something like the clouds that were in the sky before the sun came out," she replied. Then in simpler words than these, which at that time I could not have understood, she explained:

"You cannot touch the clouds, you know; but you feel the rain and know how glad the flowers and the thirsty earth are to have it after a hot day. You cannot touch love either; but you feel the sweetness that it pours into everything. Without love you would not be happy or want to play."

The beautiful truth burst upon my mind — I felt that there were invisible lines stretched between my spirit and the spirits of others."

And

"No matter how dull, or how mean, or how wise a man is, he feels that happiness is his indisputable right."

And

"A happy life consists not in the absence, but in the mastery of hardships."

And

"Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose."

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Saturday, November 19, 2022 - Jack Kemp

We miss you Jack!

"Democracy without morality is impossible."

And

"Every time in this century we've lowered the tax rates across the board, on employment, on saving, investment and risk-taking in this economy, revenues went up, not down."

And

"In 1984, Mario Cuomo of New York electrified the Democratic Convention with his tale of America as two cities, one rich and one poor, permanently divided into two classes. He talked about the rich growing richer and the poor becoming poorer, with the conclusion that class conflict, if not warfare, was the only result, and redistribution of wealth the solution.

With all due respect to Gov. Cuomo, he got it wrong. America is not divided immutably into two static classes. But it is separated or divided into two economies. One economy -- our mainstream economy -- is democratic and capitalist, market-oriented and entrepreneurial. It offers incentives for working families in labor and management. This mainstream economy rewards work, investment, saving and productivity. Incentives abound for productive economic and social behavior.

It was this economy, triggered by President Reagan's supply-side revolution of tax cuts in 1981 that generated 21.5 million new jobs, more than four million new businesses, relatively low inflation and higher standards of living for most people. This economy has created more jobs in the past decade than all of Europe, Canada and Japan combined. And according to the U.S. Treasury, federal income taxes paid by the top 1% of taxpayers has surged by more than 80% to $92 billion in 1987 from $51 billion in 1981.

There is another economy -- a second economy that is similar in respects to the East European or Third World socialist economies. It functions in a fashion opposite to the mainstream capitalist economy. It predominates in the pockets of poverty throughout urban and rural America. This economy has barriers to productive human and social activity and a virtual absence of economic incentives and rewards. It denies black, Hispanic and other minority men and women entry into the mainstream. This economy works almost as effectively as did hiring notices 50 years ago that read "No Blacks -- or Hispanics or Irish or whatever -- Need Apply."

The irony is that the second economy was born of desire to help the poor, alleviate suffering, and provide a basic social safety net. The results were a counterproductive economy. Instead of independence, the second economy led to dependence. In an effort to minimize economic pain, it maximized welfare bureaucracy and social costs."

Thank You Mr. Cash and....

Post Week 10 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

1.  Jimbo Fisher, Texas A&M > You gotta feel for the Average Texas A&M Football Fan because...

They got a Head Coach that 95% of Aggies fans would love to fire tomorrow and yet...

They cannot fire Jimbo's Ass because they would own him $86M Large if they did!

Got Damn Lunacy on Steroids?

Yep and what a Helluva Lesson that no one in College Athletics will learn a Damn Thing from but here's the Real Kicker and hold onto your sides because your ass is about to breakout laughing like a Hyena drunk on East Tennessee River Moonshine >

If the Aggies fire Jimbo's Ass after the 2023 season they will owe him...wait for it...

$77M Large!

As one Aggie Buddy of ours in Houston told us on Sunday...

"Desperate Times call for Desperate Measures and since our Aggies asses are in a sling here with Jimbo there are 500,000 Aggies alums in the world today and if each one of them just donated $172 each we could fire Jimbo's Damn Ass this afternoon! Just for good measure I will throw in $1,720 to really get the ball rolling and Hell if we lose to Auburn this coming Saturday make that $17,200!"

Oh...the Aggies go to Auburn on Saturday to play a fired-up Tigers team under Cadillac Williams and you know what that means...

Aggies and Jimbo about to get their asses handed to them on The Plains by a team with an Interim Head Coach and Roster that has about 50% of the Talent of Texas A&M!

Stanford Football was no longer practicing Football but were instead what one Coaches Hot Seat Member described as "Glorified Tiddly-Winks!"

Well...since Stanford Football began their Glorified Tiddly-Winks Horseshit their Head Coach David Shaw has posted a record the last 4 seasons of...

Their Asses Quit Practicing Football but instead...you got it...just been doing Glorified Tiddly Winks = Total Horseshit!

When your ass practices like Total Candy Asses guess what your ass gonna play like?

Be Proud...Be Damn Proud of the Damn Losers you have created with Damn Idiocy!

Stanford is now 3 - 6 on the season after getting Totally Destroyed by 4 - 4 Washington State team at home on The Farm and the Candy Asses have left >

At Utah = Will Totally Destroy Stanford

At Cal = Who knows in what should be known as the Total Candy Ass Game instead of the Big Game!

BYU = Will Probably Totally Destroy Stanford

5.  Justin Wilcox, California > Somehow the Cal Offense could only score 13 points on Awful Colorado just a few weeks ago and yet they scored 35 points on the USC Defense says all you gotta know about the Damn Idiocy of the Trojans Defense and with that loss to USC Justin Wilcox's records at Cal in 6 seasons stands at >

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Monday, November 14, 2022 - Norman Mailer

"Every moment of one's existence one is growing into more or retreating into less.  One is always living a little more or dying a little bit."

And

"Growth, in some curious way, I suspect, depends on being always in motion just a little bit, one way or another."

And

"I don't think life is absurd. I think we are all here for a huge purpose.  I think we shrink from the immensity of the purpose we are here for.

And

"Masculinity is not something given to you, but something you gain.  And you gain it by winning small battles with honor."

And

"There was that law of life, so cruel and so just, that one must grow or else pay more for remaining the same."

And

"Ultimately a hero is a man who would argue with the gods, and so awakens devils to contest his vision.  The more a man can achieve, the more he may be certain that the devil will inhabit a part of his creation."

And

"Somerset Maugham ... wrote somewhere that "Nobody is any better than he ought to be."... I carried it along with me as a working philosophy, but I suppose that finally I would have to take exception to the thought ... or else the universe is just an elaborate clock." The Deer Park, 1955

And

"The final purpose of art is to intensify, even, if necessary, to exacerbate, the moral consciousness of people."

And

"Writing books is the closest men ever come to childbearing."

And

"With the pride of an artist, you must blow against the walls of every power that exists, the small trumpet of your defiance."

And

"His consolation in those hours when he was most uncharitable to himself is that taken at his very worst he was at least still worthy of being a character in a novel by Balzac, win one day, lose the next, and do it with boom! and baroque in the style."

And

"There is no greater importance in all the world like knowing you are right and that the wave of the world is wrong, yet the wave crashes upon you

And

"New York is one of the capitals of the world and Los Angeles is a constellation of plastic, San Francisco is a lady, Boston has become Urban Renewal, Philadelphia and Baltimore and Washington blink like dull diamonds in the smog of Eastern Megalopolis, and New Orleans is unremarkable past the French Quarter. Detroit is a one-trade town, Pittsburgh has lost its golden triangle, St Louis has become the golden arch of the corporation, and nights in Kansas City close early. The oil depletion allowance makes Houston and Dallas naught but checkerboards for this sort of game. But Chicago is a great American city. Perhaps it is the last of the great American cities."

And

"There are four stages to marriage. First there's the affair, then there's the marriage, then children, and finally the fourth stage, without which you cannot know a woman, the divorce."

And

"We think of Marilyn who was every man's love affair with America. Marilyn Monroe who was blonde and beautiful and had a sweet little rinky-dink of a voice and all the cleanliness of all the clean American backyards."

And

"The highest prize in a world of men is the most beautiful woman available on your arm and living there in her heart loyal to you."

And

"We sail across dominions barely seen, washed by the swells of time. We plow through fields of magnetism. Past and future come together on thunderheads and our dead hearts live with lightning in the wounds of the Gods."

And

"I never saw love as luck, as that gift from the gods which put everything else in place, and allowed you to succeed. No, I saw love as reward. One could find it only after one's virtue, or one's courage, or self-sacrifice, or generosity, or loss, has succeeded in stirring the power of creation."

And

"Obsession is the single most wasteful human activity, because with an obsession you keep coming back and back and back to the same question and never get an answer."

And

"Booze, pot, too much sex, failure in one's private life, too much attrition, too much recognition, too little recognition. Nearly everything in the scheme of things works to dull a first-rate talent. But the worst probably is cowardice."

And

"There was that law of life so cruel and so just which demanded that one must grow or else pay more for remaining the same."

And

"The sickness of our times for me has been just this damn thing that everything has been getting smaller and smaller and less and less important, that the romantic spirit has dried up, that there is no shame today.... We're all getting so mean and small and petty and ridiculous, and we all live under the threat of extermination."

And

"On a late-winter evening in 1983, while driving through fog along the Maine coast, recollections of old campfires began to drift into the March mist, and I thought of the Abnaki Indians of the Algonquin tribe who dwelt near Bangor a thousand years ago."
Harry Hubbard, in Harlot's Ghost : A Novel (1991)

And

"What if there are not only two nostrils, two eyes, two lobes, and so forth, but two psyches as well, and they are separately equipped? They go through life like Siamese twins inside one person.... They can be just a little different, like identical twins, or they can be vastly different, like good and evil."
Kittredge Gardiner, in Harlot's Ghost : A Novel (1991)

And

"I never saw love as luck, as that gift from the gods which put everything else in place, and allowed you to succeed. No, I saw love as reward. One could find it only after one's virtue, or one's courage, or self-sacrifice, or generosity, or loss, has succeeded in stirring the power of creation."
Harry Hubbard, in Harlot's Ghost : A Novel (1991)

And

"Booze, pot, too much sex, failure in one's private life, too much attrition, too much recognition, too little recognition. Nearly everything in the scheme of things works to dull a first-rate talent. But the worst probably is cowardice."

And

"There is one expanding horror in American life. It is that our long odyssey toward liberty, democracy and freedom-for-all may be achieved in such a way that utopia remains forever closed, and we live in freedom and hell, debased of style, not individual from one another, void of courage, our fear rationalized away."

And

"We've got an agreeable, comfortable life here as Americans. But under it there's a huge, free-floating anxiety. Our inner lives, our inner landscape is just like that sky out there — it's full of smog. We really don't know what we believe anymore, we're nervous about everything."

And

"Writing can wreck your body. You sit there on the chair hour after hour and sweat your guts out to get a few words."

And

"Heaven and Hell make no sense if the majority of humans are a complex mixture of good and evil. There's no reason to receive a reward if you're 57/43—why sit around forever in an elevated version of Club Med? That's almost impossible to contemplate."

And

"If a person is not talented enough to be a novelist, not smart enough to be a lawyer, and his hands are too shaky to perform operations, he becomes a journalist."

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Sunday, November 13, 2022 - Francis Ford Coppola

"A number of images put together a certain way become something quite above and beyond what any of them are individually."

And

"Anything you build on a large scale or with intense passion invites chaos."

And

"Art depends on luck and talent."

And

"I became quite successful very young, and it was mainly because I was so enthusiastic and I just worked so hard at it."

And

"It's ironic that at age 32, at probably the greatest moment of my career, with The Godfather having such an enormous success, I wasn't even aware of it, because I was somewhere else under the deadline again."

And

"The stuff that I got in trouble for, the casting for The Godfather or the flag scene in Patton, was the stuff that was remembered, and was considered the good work."

And

"You have to really be courageous about your instincts and your ideas. Otherwise you'll just knuckle under, and things that might have been memorable will be lost."

And

"You ought to love what you're doing because, especially in a movie, over time you really will start to hate it."

And

"I think cinema, movies, and magic have always been closely associated. The very earliest people who made film were magicians."

And

"I believe that filmmaking - as, probably, is everything - is a game you should play with all your cards, and all your dice, and whatever else you've got. So, each time I make a movie, I give it everything I have. I think everyone should, and I think everyone should do everything they do that way."

And

"I associate my motion picture career more with being unhappy and scared, or being under the gun, than with anything pleasant."

And

"The essence of cinema is editing. It's the combination of what can be extraordinary images of people during emotional moments, or images in a general sense, put together in a kind of alchemy."

And

On his film, "Apocalypse Now", at the 1979 Cannes Film Festival: "My movie is not about Vietnam... my movie is Vietnam."

And

"Anything you build on a large scale or with intense passion invites chaos."

And

"Lots of people have criticized my movies, but nobody has ever identified the real problem: I'm a sloppy filmmaker."

And

"The Godfather changed my life, for better or worse. It definitely made me have an older man's film career when I was 29. So now I say, 'If I had my older career when I was young, as an older man, maybe I can have a young film-maker's career.'"

And

"Brando wants to do what you want, but he wants people to be honest and not try to manipulate him."

And

"Marlon was never hard to work with. His behaviour was a little eccentric on the set. He was like a bad boy and did what he wanted. But as an actor he was never hard to work with."

And

"I want you to remember that no bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making the other poor, dumb bastard die for his country.

Men, all this stuff you've heard about America not wanting to fight, wanting to stay out of the war, is a lot of horse dung. Americans, traditionally, love to fight. All real Americans love the sting of battle. When you were kids, you all admired the champion marble shooters, the fastest runners, big league ball players, the toughest boxers. Americans love a winner and will not tolerate a loser. Americans play to win all the time. I wouldn't give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed. That's why Americans have never lost and will never lose a war, because the very thought of losing is hateful to Americans.

Now, an army is a team. It lives, eats, sleeps, fights as a team. This individuality stuff is a bunch of crap. The bilious bastards who wrote that stuff about individuality for the Saturday

Evening Post don't know anything more about real battle than they do about fornicating.

Now, we have the finest food and equipment, the best spirit, and the best men in the world. You know, by God I, I actually pity those poor bastards we're going up against, by God, I do.

We're not just going to shoot the bastards; we're going to cut out their living guts and use them to grease the treads of our tanks. We're going to murder those lousy Hun bastards by the bushel.

Now, some of you boys, I know, are wondering whether or not you'll chicken out under fire. Don't worry about it. I can assure you that you will all do your duty.

The Nazis are the enemy. Wade into them. Spill their blood. Shoot them in the belly. When you put your hand into a bunch of goo that a moment before was your best friend's face, you'll know what to do.

Now there's another thing I want you to remember: I don't want to get any messages saying that we are holding our position. We're not holding anything. Let the Hun do that. We are advancing constantly and we're not interested in holding onto anything except the enemy. We're going to hold onto him by the nose and we're going to kick him in the ass. We're going to kick the hell out of him all the time and we're going to go through him like crap through a goose.

Now, there's one thing that you men will be able to say when you get back home. And you may thank God for it. Thirty years from now when you’re sitting around your fireside with your grandson on your knee, and he asks you: "What did you do in the great World War II?" You won't have to say, "Well, I shoveled shit in Louisiana."

Alright, now, you sons-of-bitches, you know how I feel. Oh... I will be proud to lead you wonderful guys into battle anytime, anywhere.

That's all." Opening Speech by George C. Scott playing General Patton in move Patton

And

"It was here. The battlefield was here. The Carthaginians defending the city were attacked by three Roman Legions. The Carthaginians were proud and brave but they couldn't hold. They were massacred. The Arab women stripped them of the tunics and swords, and lances. And the soldiers lay naked in the sun. 2000 years ago. I was here. (Looking at Bradley) You don't believe me, do you Brad?

You know what the poet said:
'Through the travail of ages,
Midst the pomp and toils of war,
Have I fought and strove and perished
Countless times upon a star.
As if through a glass, and darkly
The age-old strife I see—
Where I fought in many guises, many names—
but always me.'
Do you know who the poet was? Me." Battle of Carthage Scene, movie Patton

And

"All Mighty and most merciful Father, We humbly beseech Thee, of thy great goodness to restrain this immoderate weather with which we have had to contend. Grant us fair weather for battle. Graciously hearken to us as soldiers who call upon Thee that, armed with Thy power, we may advance from victory to victory, and crush the oppression and wickedness of our enemies and establish Thy justice among men and nations. Amen." Weather Prayer, move Patton

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Saturday, November 12, 2022 - William Faulkner

"A gentleman can live through anything."

And

"A man's moral conscience is the curse he had to accept from the gods in order to gain from them the right to dream."

And

"A mule will labor ten years willingly and patiently for you, for the privilege of kicking you once."

And

"All of us failed to match our dreams of perfection. So I rate us on the basis of our splendid failure to do the impossible."

And

"Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Don't bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself."

And

"An artist is a creature driven by demons. He doesn't know why they choose him and he's usually too busy to wonder why."

And

"Clocks slay time... time is dead as long as it is being clicked off by little wheels; only when the clock stops does time come to life."

And

"Facts and truth really don't have much to do with each other."

And

"Given a choice between grief and nothing, I'd choose grief."

And

"Hollywood is a place where a man can get stabbed in the back while climbing a ladder."

And

"I believe that man will not merely endure. He will prevail. He is immortal, not because he alone among creatures has an inexhaustible voice, but because he has a soul, a spirit capable of compassion and sacrifice and endurance."

And

"I have found that the greatest help in meeting any problem is to know where you yourself stand. That is, to have in words what you believe and are acting from."

And

"I'm bad and I'm going to hell, and I don't care. I'd rather be in hell than anywhere where you are."

And

"I'm inclined to think that a military background wouldn't hurt anyone."

And

"It's a shame that the only thing a man can do for eight hours a day is work. He can't eat for eight hours; he can't drink for eight hours; he can't make love for eight hours. The only thing a man can do for eight hours is work."

And

"Man performs and engenders so much more than he can or should have to bear. That's how he finds that he can bear anything."

And

"My own experience has been that the tools I need for my trade are paper, tobacco, food, and a little whisky."

And

"The aim of every artist is to arrest motion, which is life, by artificial means and hold it fixed so that a hundred years later, when a stranger looks at it, it moves again since it is life."

And

"The end of wisdom is to dream high enough to lose the dream in the seeking of it."

And

And

"I decline to accept the end of man. It is easy enough to say that man is immortal because he will endure: that when the last ding-dong of doom has clanged and faded from the last worthless rock hanging tideless in the last red and dying evening, that even then there will still be one more sound: that of his puny inexhaustible voice, still talking. I refuse to accept this. I believe that man will not merely endure: he will prevail. He is immortal, not because he alone among creatures has an inexhaustible voice, but because he has a soul, a spirit capable of compassion and sacrifice and endurance. The poet's, the writer's, duty is to write about these things. It is his privilege to help man endure by lifting his heart, by reminding him of the courage and honor and hope and pride and compassion and pity and sacrifice which have been the glory of his past. The poet's voice need not merely be the record of man, it can be one of the props, the pillars to help him endure and prevail." Nobel Prize Speech, December 1950

And

"Mr. Khrushchev says that Communism, the police state, will bury the free ones. He is a smart gentleman, he knows that this is nonsense since freedom, man's dim concept of and belief in the human spirit is the cause of all his troubles in his own country. But if he means that Communism will bury capitalism, he is correct. That funeral will occur about ten minutes after the police bury gambling. Because simple man, the human race, will bury both of them. That will be when we have expended the last grain, dram, and iota of our natural resources. But man himself will not be in that grave. The last sound on the worthless earth will be two human beings trying to launch a homemade spaceship and already quarreling about where they are going next." Speech in New York, October 1959

And

"No one is without Christianity, if we agree on what we mean by that word. It is every individual's individual code of behavior by means of which he makes himself a better human being than his nature wants to be, if he followed his nature only. Whatever its symbol - cross or crescent or whatever - that symbol is man's reminder of his duty inside the human race. Its various allegories are the charts against which he measures himself and learns to know what he is. It cannot teach a man to be good as the textbook teaches him mathematics. It shows him how to discover himself, evolve for himself a moral codes and standard within his capacities and aspirations, by giving him a matchless example of suffering and sacrifice and the promise of hope." Paris Review Interview, 1958

And

The two great men in my time were Mann and Joyce. You should approach Joyce's Ulysses as the illiterate Baptist preacher approaches the Old Testament: with "faith."

And

"Life is motion, and motion is concerned with what makes man move - which is ambition, power, pleasure. What time a man can devote to morality, he must take by force from the motion of which he is a part. He is compelled to make choices between good and evil sooner or later, because moral conscience demands that from him in order that he can live with himself tomorrow. His moral conscience is the curse he had to accept from the gods in order to gain from them the right to dream."

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Friday, November 11, 2022 - John Steinbeck

And while men admire the quality of the first they love the produce of the second."

"Where does discontent start? You are warm enough, but you shiver. You are fed, yet hunger gnaws you. You have been loved, but your yearning wanders in new fields. And to prod all these there's time, the Bastard Time."

"Writers are a little below clowns and a little above trained seals."

"We are lonesome animals. We spend all our life trying to be less lonesome. One of our ancient methods is to tell a story begging the listener to say — and to feel — ”Yes, that’s the way it is, or at least that’s the way I feel it. You’re not as alone as you thought.”"

"And this I believe: that the free, exploring mind of the individual human is the most valuable thing in the world. And this I would fight for: the freedom of the mind to take any direction it wishes, undirected. And this I must fight against: any religion, or government which limits or destroys the individual. This is what I am and what I am about. I can understand why a system built on a pattern must try to destroy the free mind, for it is the one thing which can by inspection destroy such a system. Surely I can understand this, and I hate it and I will fight against it to preserve the one thing that separates us from the uncreative beasts. If the glory can be killed, we are lost."

And

"In every bit of honest writing in the world … there is a base theme. Try to understand men, if you understand each other you will be kind to each other. Knowing a man well never leads to hate and nearly always leads to love. There are shorter means, many of them. there is writing promoting social change, writing punishing injustice, writing in celebration of heroism, but always that base theme. Try to understand each other."

And

"I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great artist and that there are as few as there are any other great artists. It might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit."

And

"The profession of book-writing makes horse-racing seem like a solid, stable business."

And

"Our species is the only creative species, and it has only one creative instrument, the individual mind and spirit of a man. Nothing was ever created by two men. There are no good collaborations, whether in art, in music, in poetry, in mathematics, in philosophy. Once the miracle of creation has taken place, the group can build and extend it, but the group never invents anything. The preciousness lies in the lonely mind of a man."

And

"It seems to me that if you or I must choose between two courses of thought or action, we should remember our dying and try so to live that our death brings no pleasure on the world."

And

"I guess this is why I hate governments. It is always the rule, the fine print, carried out by the fine print men. There's nothing to fight, no wall to hammer with frustrated fists.

Excerpt from Travels with Charley, John Steinbeck

The next passage in my journey is a love affair. I am in love with Montana. For other states I have admiration, respect, recognition, even some affection, but with Montana it is love, and it’s difficult to analyze love when you’re in it. Once, when I raptured in a violet glow given off by the Queen of the World, my father asked me why, and I thought he was crazy not to see. Of course I know now she was a mouse-haired, freckle-nosed, scabby-kneed little girl with a voice like a bat and the loving kindness of a gila monster, but then she lighted up the landscape and me. It seems to me that Montana is a great splash of grandeur. The scale is huge but not overpowering. The land is rich with grass and color, and the mountains are the kind I would create if mountains were ever put on my agenda. Montana seems to me to be what a small boy would think Texas is like from hearing Texans. Here for the first time I heard a definite regional accent unaffected by TV-ese, a slow-paced warm speech. It seemed to me that the frantic bustle of America was not in Montana. Its people did not seem afraid of shadows in a John Birch Society sense. The calm of the mountains and the rolling grasslands had got into the inhabitants. It was hunting season when I drove through the state. The men I talked to seemed to me not moved to a riot of seasonal slaughter but simply to be going out to kill edible meat. Again my attitude may be informed by love, but it seemed to me that the towns were places to live in rather than nervous hives. People had time to pause in their occupations to undertake the passing art of neighborliness.

I found I did not rush through the towns to get them over with. I even found things I had to buy to make myself linger. In Billings I bought a hat, in Livingston a jacket, in Butte a rifle I didn’t particularly need, a Remington bolt-action .22, secondhand but in beautiful condition. Then I found a telescope sight I had to have, and waited while it was mounted on the rifle, and in the process got to know everyone in the shop and any customers who entered. With the gun in a vise and the bolt out, we zeroed the new sight on a chimney three blocks away, and later when I got to shooting the little gun I found no reason to change it. I spent a good part of a morning at this, mostly because I wanted to stay. But I see that, as usual, love is inarticulate. Montana has a spell on me. It is grandeur and warmth. If Montana had a seacoast, or if I could live away from the sea, I would instantly move there and petition for admission. Of all the states it is my favorite and my love.

At Custer we made a side trip south to pay our respects to General Custer and Sitting Bull on the battlefield of Little Big Horn. I don’t suppose there is an American who doesn’t carry Remington’s painting of the last defense of the center column of the 7th Cavalry in his head. I removed my hat in memory of brave men, and Charley saluted in his own manner but I thought with great respect.

The whole of eastern Montana and the western Dakotas is memory-marked as Injun country, and the memories are not very old either. Some years ago my neighbor was Charles Erskine Scott Wood, who wrote Heavenly Discourse. He was a very old man when I knew him, but as a young lieutenant just out of military academy he had been assigned to General Miles and he served in the Chief Joseph campaign. His memory of it was very clear and very sad. He said it was one of the most gallant retreats in all history. Chief Joseph and the Nez Percés with squaws and children, dogs, and all their possessions, retreated under heavy fire for over a thousand miles, trying to escape to Canada. Wood said they fought every step of the way against odds until finally they were surrounded by the cavalry under General Miles and the large part of them wiped out. It was the saddest duty he had ever performed, Wood said, and he had never lost his respect for the fighting qualities of the Nez Percés. “If they hadn’t had their families with them we could never have caught them,” he said. “And if we had been evenly matched in men and weapons, we couldn’t have beaten them. They were men,” he said, “Real men.”

With Harsin scheduled to get something around an $18M buyout when Auburn fires him in a few weeks what can one say but >

Great Work Son!

3.  Jimbo Fisher, Texas A&M > In Jimbo Fisher's 56 th game at Texas A&M the Aggies lost at home to Ole Miss and most interesting thing about the Aggies losing this game?

Not one person with a 2+ IQ was surprised the Aggies lost this game!

Let's be honest here >

Texas A&M Football is a Damn Mess and in a Bigger Mess than even the late Dennis Franchione years which were a Helluva Big Mess and with the Aggies now at 3 - 5 on the season and these games left >

Florida
At Auburn
UMass
LSU

If the Aggies don't get to 6 wins Jimbo's ass has gotta be run no matter the buyout...Right?

6 Wins is now the Standard of Excellence at Texas A&M!

"If we can only get to 6 wins everything will be A-OK!"

What A Damn Mess!

4.  Patty Boy Fitzgerald, Northwestern >The Losses keep coming for Patty Boy Fitzgerald and the Candy Ass Non-Fighting Wildcats with a loss to Iowa by the score of 33 - 13 on Saturday and you gotta wonder this about Ole Patty Boy >

Do you take 2 lumps of sugar with your high tea or just one Patty Boy?

We are thinking Ole Patty Boy take 4 lumps of sugar in his high tea and he takes his high tea sitting on a big pile of goose down feather pillows!

Ole Patty Boy and the Candy Ass Non-Fighting Wildcats are now 1 - 7 and have left to play this season >

Well Arkansas State has left in 2022 >

UMass
At Texas State

Hell Arkansas State should win at least 2 of these remaining 3 games...Right?

6. David Shaw, Stanford > A couple of Coaches Hot Seat Members were in Los Angeles last week on business and decided to hang around for the Stanford at UCLA football game at the Rose Bowl and both being Stanford alums we were interested to hear their report from the game and here it is and this is of course their humble opinions >

"It was beyond disgraceful how UCLA, F-ing UCLA, pushed around Stanford the entire game and sitting behind the Cardinal bench as soon as it became clear the game was over the Stanford players could have really cared less about playing in the game or even paying attention on the sideline. David Shaw has long ago lost this team and entire Stanford football program and all because he fully embraced Candy Ass Football based upon absolute Horseshit being fed to him by Worthless Academics at Stanford that wouldn't know how to play in a football game or coach a football team on the best day of their lives. Stanford Football is now Weaker, Most Disorganized, Less Caring, and More Pitiful than it was before Jim Harbaugh arrived on The Farm and we cannot understand how David Shaw can look at himself in the mirror and take a penny from Stanford since he is a Total Disgrace to the Athletic Department and the University as a whole and if he was failing like this anywhere else on the Stanford campus his ass would have been fired long ago!"

Can we get an Amen! Make that a Zillion Amens!

The Truth is the UCLA Powder Blue Bruins just flat-out whipped Stanford on Saturday night because David Shaw is a Candy Ass that hasn't coached football in 3 years now and will if allowed turn Stanford Football into a collection of the Biggest Damn Candy Asses on the face of the Earth!

Hell Stanford Football is already that > The Biggest Damn Candy Asses on the face of the Earth!

It's just a Damn Disgrace to not only Stanford University but to America and to the game of football in America because this isn't football being played at Stanford and if Bill Walsh was alive today he would throttle Shaw's Candy Ass right off The Farm in a Damn Nanosecond!

In our humble opinion that is!

Stanford is now 3 - 5 with games left against >

Washington State
At Utah
At Cal
BYU

Who knows on Washington State, at Utah is gonna be a Loss, and the Big Game will be a Hot Seat vs Hot Seat Coaches Game with Cal Football being a Damn Disaster as well and BYU is being turned into a bunch of Damn Candy Asses by Kalani Sitake so maybe Stanford will have a chance in that game if the Cougars keep moving towards Total Candy Ass!

7.  Justin Wilcox, California > In 6 seasons at California Justin Wilcox is sitting on 2 Winning Seasons and records of >

Overall > 29 - 33

Pac-12 > 16 - 29

Pitiful is a word that comes to mind and after the loss to Oregon on Saturday the Cal Bears are now 3 - 5 on the season with games left against >

At USC
At Oregon State
Stanford
UCLA

Maybe 4 - 8 in his 6 th season at Cal? Maybe!

8.  Danny Gonzales, New Mexico > New Mexico had a bye in Week 9 so what we wrote last week on Gonzales still stands and for the record Danny's records at UNM are >

Overall > 7 - 20

MWC > 3 - 16

Pitiful. Just Pitiful

9.  Steve Sarkisian, Texas > In 2 seasons at Texas Ole Steve Sarkisian now sitting on a record of >

10 - 10

And 5 - 3 in 2022 and the Longhorns have left in 2022 >

At Kansas State
TCU
At Kansas
Baylor

Damn, the way that Kansas State and TCU playing that looks like 2 losses and Kansas could easily be a loss and Baylor to end the season ain't gonna be easy so Sark could again go 5 - 7 this season like last year and for the record Tom Herman who got his ass run out of Austin >

Didn’t Have ANY Losing Seasons at Texas!

We would recommend Sark find a way to get to 6 Wins in 2022!

Just Saying!

10.  Jedd Fisch, Arizona > Ole Jedd a nice enough of a guy and he's working hard to get things going at Arizona but in 2 seasons in Tucson Jedd's records now stand at >

Overall > 4 - 16

Pac-12 > 2 - 12

After the loss to USC the Wildcats now at 3 - 5 on the season and have left in 2022 >

At Utah
At UCLA
Washington State
Arizona State

Maybe if the Wildcats can win 2 their last 4 games that would be an improvement...Hell it would be an improvement so get off your ass and get it done Son!

"A winner never stops trying."

And

"Football is an incredible game. Sometimes it's so incredible, it's unbelievable."

And

"If you are prepared, you will be confident, and will do the job."

And

"Leadership is a matter of having people look at you and gain confidence, seeing how you react. If you're in control, they're in control."

And

"Right after the game, say as little as possible."

And

"Setting a goal is not the main thing. It is deciding how you will go about achieving it and staying with that plan."

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Tuesday, November 1, 2022 - Thomas Paine

"A thing moderately good is not so good as it ought to be. Moderation in temper is always a virtue; but moderation in principle is always a vice."

And

"Character is much easier kept than recovered."

And

"Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one."

And

"I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death."

And

"I prefer peace. But if trouble must come, let it come in my time, so that my children can live in peace."

And

"One good schoolmaster is of more use than a hundred priests."

And

"Society in every state is a blessing, but government, even in its best stage, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one."

And

"That which we obtain too easily, we esteem too lightly."

And

"There are two distinct classes of what are called thoughts: those that we produce in ourselves by reflection and the act of thinking and those that bolt into the mind of their own accord."

And

"These are the times that try men's souls."

And

"Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it."

And

"We have it in our power to begin the world over again."

And

"We have every opportunity and every encouragement before us, to form the noblest purest constitution on the face of the earth. We have it in our power to begin the world over again. A situation, similar to the present, hath not happened since the days of Noah until now. The birthday of a new world is at hand, and a race of men, perhaps as numerous as all Europe contains, are to receive their portion of freedom from the event of a few months." Common Sense, 1776

And

"THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated." The American Crisis, 1776

And

"It matters not where you live, or what rank of life you hold, the evil or the blessing will reach you all. The far and the near, the home counties and the back, the rich and the poor, will suffer or rejoice alike. The heart that feels not now is dead; the blood of his children will curse his cowardice, who shrinks back at a time when a little might have saved the whole, and made them happy. I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death." The American Crisis, 1776

And

"The circumstances of the world are continually changing, and the opinions of man change also; and as government is for the living, and not for the dead, it is the living only that has any right in it." The Rights of Man, 1791

And

"It is the nature and intention of a constitution to prevent governing by party, by establishing a common principle that shall limit and control the power and impulse of party, and that says to all parties, thus far shalt thou go and no further. But in the absence of a constitution, men look entirely to party; and instead of principle governing party, party governs principle." First Principles of Government, 1795

And

"I never tire of reading Tom Paine." Abraham Lincoln, as quoted in A Literary History of the American People, 1931

And

"I consider Paine our greatest political thinker. As we have not advanced, and perhaps never shall advance, beyond the Declaration and Constitution, so Paine has had no successors who extended his principles." Thomas Alva Edison

Post Week 8 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

Give These Hot Seat Coaches Hell Mr. Cash!

Thanks Johnny

Post Week 8 Coaches Hot Seat Ranking

1.  Jeff Scott, South Florida > South Florida had a bye in Week 8 and Jeff Scott's records at USF still at >

Overall:  4 - 24
AAC:  1 - 17

The Bulls have left in 2022 >

At Houston
At Temple
SMU
At Tulsa
UCF

Now a Coach in his THIRD season at South Florida should do No Damn Worse than >

3 - 2

In the above games!

What will Scott and the Bulls do?

Let's find out!

2.  Bryan Harsin, Auburn > The word we have heard out of Auburn and on a couple of sports talk shows in Alabama is that >

There is no Adequate Coach on the Auburn Staff to be the Interim Auburn Head Coach if Harsin was fired so Harsin is still the Head Coach of the Auburn Tigers!

The 3 - 4 Auburn Tigers have left in 2022 >

Arkansas
At Mississippi State
Texas A&M
Western Kentucky
At Alabama

Auburn can win a couple of those games at least if the team plays hard!

Let's find out!

Don't want to jinx anyone but the word we are getting out of Auburn is that the Big $$$ Boys around Auburn are debating between below Coaches for their next Head Coach at Auburn >

Jamey Chadwell
Kevin Steele
Hugh Freeze

Our guess on October 24 who the next Head Coach at Auburn will be >

Hugh Freeze

3.  Jimbo Fisher, Texas A&M > The very first time that a Member of Coaches Hot Seat talked to and met Jimbo Fisher he was the Quarterback at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama, actually Homewood, Alabama just South of Birmingham, playing for then Samford Head Coach Terry Bowden.

We don't have any ill will against Jimbo and actually understand both where Jimbo came from, how he worked his ass for Nick Saban and Bobby Bowden and fought his way up to the top of the College Football Coaching World, and what has happened with Jimbo since the Jameis Winston days at Florida State and now to Texas A&M.

Very simply we know what drives Jimbo and what has gone wrong with Jimbo and in a lot of ways for lots of different reasons Jimbo has lost his way the last few years at Texas A&M and has mainly lost sight of what College Football and Coaching are all about and this Aggies team now reflects a Head Coach that is lost and honestly needs a break from the game for at least a year or two and Jimbo probably knows this better than anyone else!

In Year 5 at Texas A&M for Jimbo Fisher, when the Aggies should be a Rolling War Machine of a Football Program, they just lost to an Average South Carolina team with still a Green and Young Head Coach in Shane Beamer who is showing Great Promise like his Legendary Daddy Frank but really now >

There's no reason that the Aggies didn't roll in and Totally Dominate South Carolina in Jimbo Fisher's 55 th game as the Head coach at Texas A&M!

Now at 3 - 4 on the season the Aggies have left >

Ole Miss
Florida
At Auburn
UMass
LSU

4 games left at Kyle Field and the Aggies should win all 4 and really should beat Auburn as well to finish at 8 - 4 on the season but if A&M loses to Ole Miss this coming Saturday they probably will only beat UMass!

The sad thing is if this does collapse the A&M folks gonna have to pay around $100M to fire Jimbo Fisher and his staff then commit to another $50M to hire the Next Head Coach of the Aggies and does anyone with a 2+ IQ have Any Damn Confidence that Anyone at or around Texas A&M has 1 Damn Clue what they are doing?

NOPE!

4.  Pat Fitzgerald, Northwestern > The Total Candy Ass Non-Fighting Baby Cats of Patty Boy Fitzgerald Fame lost another game on Saturday and now that's a record the last 2 seasons for Patty Boy of >

4 - 15

The Real Lesson Here >

When your ass goes Total Candy Ass when your ass supposed to be Coaching Football expect to Lose A Helluva Lot of Football Games and Northwestern went Total Candy Ass 2 years ago under Patty Boy!

The Total Candy Ass Non-Fighting Baby Cats of Patty Boy now at 1 - 6 on the season have left in 2022 >

At Iowa
Ohio State

At Purdue
Illinois

Got 1 - 11 Patty Boy?

We will be Happy to fly over to Evanston Patty Boy and hold some Real Football Practices and Toughen Up Your Boys Son if you like Patty Boy but we gonna practice them like we do our Coaches Hot Seat Flag Football Practices playing Real Football now so No Damn Crying if any of them get a Boo-Boo or two!

5.  Ken Niumatalolo, Navy > With the loss to Houston at home on Saturday Navy Head Coach Kenny Boy's record since he went Total Candy Ass in Annapolis after the 2019 season is >

We got 15+ US Navy Combat Vets at Coaches Hot Seat Kenny Boy and the Navy Football Team is very simply >

A Total Embarrassment to the United States Navy!

Shameful! Just Damn Shameful!

6.  Butch Jones, Arkansas State > With the loss to Louisiana on Saturday, which drops the Red Wolves record in 2022 to 2 - 6, Butch Jones records at Arkansas State in 2 seasons on the job are now >

Overall 4 - 16
Sun Belt 2 - 11

That's all we have to say and it's plenty!

7.  Mario Cristobal, Miami > Mario Cristobal took over a Miami team that went 7 - 5 in 2021 and beat Duke 47 - 10 in their last game and got their Head Coach run out of Miami and what has Mario done in Year 1 on the job with the Canes?

Try now at 3 - 4 on the season and just got blasted at home by Duke with a First Year Head Coach and heading towards a Losing Season when Bozo the Clown could have coached the Hurricanes Drunk from a Motel 6 in Sebring, Florida and won 7 games easy!

We had a couple of Members of Coaches Hot Seat up in Eugene this past weekend for the UCLA vs Oregon game and they were talking to "X Person closely associated with Oregon Athletics" and this "X Person" said >

"Greatest thing ever happened to Oregon Football was Mario taking the Miami job!"

Oh?

The 3 - 4 Canes have left in 2022 >

At Virginia
Florida State
At Georgia Tech
At Clemson
Pitt

Hell the Canes are not going to win 6 games in 2022!

Mario gonna get his ass run right out of Miami after Year 1?

Maybe!

8.  Danny Gonzales, New Mexico > We don't have a Damn Clue why Danny Gonzales has been a Total Disaster at New Mexico but very simply >

Danny Gonzales has been a Total Disaster at New Mexico!

Just the Facts as Joe Friday used to say >

Overall 7 - 20
MWC 3 - 16

Just A Total Damn Disaster!

9.  Steve Sarkisan, Texas > A few of us first met Sark when he was on Pete Carroll's staff at USC and love Steve but we like our Fathers and All Good Fathers are >

Hardest on those we love because we know their asses can do better!

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Monday, October 31, 2022 - Audie Murphy

"Seems to me that if you're afraid or living with some big fear, you're not really living. You're only half alive. I don't care if it’s the boss you're scared of or a lot of people in a room or diving off of a dinky little board, you gotta get rid of it. You owe it to yourself. Makes sort of a zombie out of you being afraid. I mean you want to be free, don't you? And how can you if you are scared? That's prison. Fear's a jailer. Mind now, I'm not a professor on the subject. I just found it out for myself. But that's what I think."

And

"If you're afraid of anything, why not take a chance and do the thing you fear. Sometimes it's the only way to get over being afraid."

In all these things, and many more, you'll find America. In all these things, you'll find freedom. And freedom is what America means to the world. And to me."

And

"Lead from the front."

And

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Wednesday, October 27, 2022 - John Updike

"A leader is one who, out of madness or goodness, volunteers to take upon himself the woe of the people. There are few men so foolish, hence the erratic quality of leadership in the world."

And

'Creativity is merely a plus name for regular activity. Any activity becomes creative when the doer cares about doing it right, or better."

And

'Dreams come true; without that possibility, nature would not incite us to have them."

And

"Golf appeals to the idiot in us and the child. Just how childlike golf players become is proven by their frequent inability to count past five."

And

"If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money."

And

And

'Four years was enough of Harvard. I still had a lot to learn, but had been given the liberating notion that now I could teach myself."

And

"It was true of my generation, that the movies were terribly vivid and instructive. There were all kinds of things you learned. Like the 19th century novels, you saw how other social classes lived - especially the upper classes. So in a funny way, they taught you manners almost. But also moral manners. The gallantry of a Gary Cooper or an Errol Flynn or Jimmy Stewart. It was ethical instruction of a sort that the church purported to be giving you, but in a much less digestible form. Instead of these remote, crabbed biblical verses, you had contemporary people acting out moral dilemmas. Just the grace, the grace of those stars - not just the dancing stars, but the way they all moved with a certain grace. All that sank deep into my head, and my soul."

And

"In the old movies, yes, there always was the happy ending and order was restored. As it is in Shakespeare's plays. It's no disgrace to, in the end, restore order. And punish the wicked and, in some way, reward the righteous."

And

"Rain is grace; rain is the sky descending to the earth; without rain, there would be no life."

And

"The essential support and encouragement comes from within, arising out of the mad notion that your society needs to know what only you can tell it."

And

"America is a vast conspiracy to make you happy."

And

"Writers may be disreputable, incorrigible, early to decay or late to bloom but they dare to go it alone."

And

"Being naked approaches being revolutionary; going barefoot is mere populism."

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Monday, October 24, 2022 - LeRoy Neiman

"I had a go at changing history - maybe not all by myself - I fought at the battle of Normandy, I slogged through the Ardennes, and I celebrated the liberation of Paris on the streets with beautiful French girls throwing flowers at me. I said good-bye to my first true love and discovered what I really wanted to do with my life."

And

'Every time I started painting it was like a new experience, but they all came out the same."

And

"I hold doors open for all the women. Men can open the doors for themselves."

And

"Imagination comes of not having things."

And

"Boxing is my real passion. I can go to ballet, theatre, movies, or other sporting events... and nothing is like the fights to me. I'm excited by the visual beauty of it. A boxer can look so spectacular by doing a good job."

And

"I've met and sketched most of the great athletes from the past five decades and their movement, grace and energy have kept me captivated over the years. That's what the ancient Greeks first saw and that's what caught my interest."

And

"I always stayed in tune with my own ambitions and attitudes and I'm still my intractable old self, for better or worse."

And

"Eating is one of the great beauties in life. One of my favorite recreations... eating with friends, the service, the ambience."

And

"But 'Playboy' was liberating. I was drawn to it and went for it full throttle."

And

"I guess I created LeRoy Neiman. Nobody else told me how to do it. Well, I'm a believer in the theory that the artist is as important as his work."

And

"It's a nice feeling to go out in the world and look for excellence - the best in man. My subject is very valid. It's about people, and about life."

And

"I've got the public. I don't care about the critics. I did at one time. I don't any more. I did when I needed compliments. But if you get a lot of compliments, you don't need a critic to tell you, 'This should be done another way.'"

And

"The businessman says 'If I don't do it first, somebody else will.' The artist says 'If I don't do it first, nobody else will.'"

And

"I can easily ignore my detractors and feel the people who respond favorably."

And

"It's been fun. I've had a lucky life. Art has made me pull the best out of myself."

And

"I don't know if I'm an impressionist or an expressionist. You can call me an American first... I've been labeled doing neimanism, so that's what it is, I guess."

And

"I've zeroed in on what you would call action and excellence... Everybody who does anything to try to succeed has to give the best of themselves, and art has made me pull the best out of myself."

And

"The people who love my paintings, that respond to them the most, they're spectators, they're not viewers."

And

"I draw all the time. Drawing is my backbone. I don't think a painter has to be able to draw, I just think that if you draw, you better draw well."

And

"I love the passion you go through while you're creating."

And

"You can't take yourself too seriously."

And

"No, I never had any dreams. The process of art is a dream in itself. The artist just doesn't... you work out something. It's yours. You don't have to go to sleep to do that. You do that on the canvas."

And

"When I paint, I seriously consider the public presence of a person - the surface facade. I am less concerned with how people look when they wake up or how they act at home. A person's public presence reflects his own efforts at image development."

And

"'Playboy' made the good life a reality for me and made it the subject matter of my paintings - not affluence and luxury as such, but joie de vivre itself."

And

"It has been difficult to hold onto many paintings but I have retained a few. Possibly the current favorite is titled 'Big Band' completed in 2005. It measures 13 feet x 9 feet. It has 18 nearly life size recognizable portraits of the biggest jazz stars that I knew and saw perform in the 1950s, '60s, '70s, '80s and includes Wynton Marsalis."

And

"The most important thing is to just do it. If I work at a higher level I have responsibility to do better than what I've done before. Sometimes the best happens - beyond possibility. Just do it. Can't worry about it."

And

"You know what I like about San Francisco? The women are beautiful, fashionable and smart. San Francisco is one of the only cities I like to visit. I love New York and Chicago - I studied there, and L.A. has the same people as New York."

And

"There's no greatest moment in the arts. It's a life, it's a continuity thing. You can't have a great moment because it's spiritual. It's a belief, it's a calling. If you're an artist, doing your own thing on your own, it's while you're doing it that counts. It's a process. If you get too elated, you can get too depressed."

And

"The big shock of my life was Abstract Expressionism - Pollock, de Kooning, those guys. It changed my work. I was an academically trained student, and suddenly you could pour paint, smear it on, broom it on!"

And

"If you aren't fired with enthusiasm, you'll be fired with enthusiasm."

And

"Mental toughness is essential to success."

And

"You never win a game unless you beat the guy in front of you. The score on the board doesn't mean a thing. That's for the fans. You've got to win the war with the man in front of you. You've got to get your man."

And

"To achieve success, whatever the job we have, we must pay a price."

And

"Success is like anything worthwhile. It has a price. You have to pay the price to win and you have to pay the price to get to the point where success is possible. Most important, you must pay the price to stay there."

And

"Football is a great deal like life in that it teaches that work, sacrifice, perseverance, competitive drive, selflessness and respect for authority is the price each and every one of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile."

And

"Once you agree upon the price you and your family must pay for success, it enables you to ignore the minor hurts, the opponent's pressure, and the temporary failures."

And

"Confidence is contagious and so is lack of confidence, and a customer will recognize both."

And

"If you believe in yourself and have the courage, the determination, the dedication, the competitive drive and if you are willing to sacrifice the little things in life and pay the price for the things that are worthwhile, it can be done."

And

"Unless a man believes in himself and makes a total commitment to his career and puts everything he has into it-his mind, his body and his heart-what is life worth to him? If I were a salesman, I would make this commitment to my company, to the product and most of all, to myself."

And

"The quality of a person's life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor."

And

"Once a man has made a commitment to a way of life, he puts the greatest strength in the world behind him. It's something we call heart power. Once a man has made this commitment, nothing will stop him short of success."

And

"Unless a man believes in himself and makes a total commitment to his career and puts everything he has into it-his mind, his body, his heart-what's life worth to him.

And

"In great attempts, it is glorious even to fail."

And

"They may not love you at the time, but they will later."

And

" Leadership rests not only upon ability, not only upon capacity; having the capacity to lead is not enough. The leader must be willing to use it. His leadership is then based on truth and character. There must be truth in the purpose and will power in the character."

And

"Leadership is based on a spiritual quality; the power to inspire, the power to inspire others to follow."

And

"Having the capacity to lead is not enough. The leader must be willing to use it."

And

"A leader must identify himself with the group, must back up the group, even at the risk of displeasing superiors. He must believe that the group wants from him a sense of approval. If this feeling prevails, production, discipline, morale will be high, and in return, you can demand the cooperation to promote the goals of the company."

And

"Leaders are made, they are not born. They are made by hard effort, which is the price which all of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile."

And

"They call it coaching but it is teaching. You do not just tell them…you show them the reasons."

And

"The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender."

And

"It is essential to understand that battles are primarily won in the hearts of men. Men respond to leadership in a most remarkable way and once you have won his heart, he will follow you anywhere."

And

"The good Lord gave you a body that can stand most anything. It's your mind you have to convince."

And

"Mental toughness is many things and rather difficult to explain. Its qualities are sacrifice and self-denial. Also, most importantly, it is combined with a perfectly disciplined will that refuses to give in. It's a state of mind-you could call it character in action."

And

"Once you learn to quit, it becomes a habit."

And

"Individual commitment to a group effort-that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work."

And

"Teams do not go physically flat, they go mentally stale."

And

"Teamwork is what the Green Bay Packers were all about. They didn't do it for individual glory. They did it because they loved one another."

And

"People who work together will win, whether it be against complex football defenses, or the problems of modern society."

"The achievements of an organization are the results of the combined effort of each individual."

And

"Success demands singleness of purpose."

And

"Winning is not everything--but making effort to win is."

And

"It's easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline when you're a winner, when you're number one. What you've got to have is faith and discipline when you're not yet a winner."

And

"I firmly believe that any man's finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is the moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle-victorious."

And

"Always do everything you ask of those you command."

And

And

"We herd sheep, we drive cattle, we lead people. Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way."

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Thursday, October 20, 2022 - Frank Sinatra

And

"I'm gonna live till I die."

And

"May you live to be 100 and may the last voice you hear be mine."

And

"The best revenge is massive success."

And

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Tuesday, October 18, 2022 - Bill Walsh

Bill Walsh's Five Don'ts

"1. Don't ask, "Why me?"

2. Don't expect sympathy.

3. Don't bellyache.

4. Don't keep accepting condolences.

5. Don't blame others."

And

"If you see players who hate practice, their coach isn't doing a very good job."

And

"The absolute bottom line in coaching is organization and preparing for practice."

And

"A resolute and resourceful leader understands that there are a multitude of means to increase the probability of success. And that's what it all comes down to, namely, intelligently and relentlessly seeking solutions that will increase your chance of prevailing in a competitive environment. When you do that, the score will take care of itself."

And

"I've observed that if individuals who prevail in a highly competitive environment have any one thing in common besides success, it is failure - and their ability to overcome it."

And

"The ability to help the people around me self-actualize their goals underlines the single aspect of my abilities and the label that I value most- teacher."

And

"Failure is part of success, an integral part. Everybody gets knocked down. Knowing it will happen and what you must do when it does is the first step back."

And

"When you stand and overcome a significant setback, you'll find an increasing inner confidence and self-assurance that has been created by conquering defeat. Absorbing and overcoming this kind of punishment engenders a sober, steely toughness that results in a hardened sense of independence and a personal belief that you can take on anything, survive and win."

And

"Great players and great companies don't suddenly start hunching up, grimacing, and trying to "hit the ball harder" at a critical point. Rather, they're in a mode, a zone in which they're performing and depending on their "game," which they've mastered over many months and years of intelligently directed hard work. There's only so much thinking you can isolate and focus on during that kind of extreme competitive pressure. It has to be tactical more than a conscious effort to really "try harder." You just want to function very well, up to your potential, effortlessly=do what you already know how to do at the level of excellence you've acquired-whether in making a presentation or coaching a game or anything else."

And

"Everybody's got an opinion. Leaders are paid to make a decision. The difference between offering an opinion and making a decision is the difference between working for the leader and being the leader."

And

"We all have in our mind inspiring examples of individuals who persevered beyond the point of reason and common sense and prevailed. We tend to ignore the more numerous examples of individuals who persisted and persisted and finally failed and took everybody down with them because they would not change course or quit. We ignore them because we never heard about them."

And

"You must be the best version of yourself that you can be; stay within the framework of your own personality and be authentic. If you're faking it, you'll be found out."

And

"The trademark of a well-led organization in sports or business is that it's virtually self-sustaining and self-directed-almost autonomous. To put it in a more personal way, if your staff doesn't seem fully mobilized and energized until you enter the room, if they require your presence to carry on at the level of effort and excellence you have tried to install, your leadership has not percolated down."

And

"Strong leaders don't plead with individuals to perform."

And

"Make each person in your employ very aware that his or her well-being has a high priority with the organization and that the well-being of the organization must be his or her highest professional priority."

And

"The highest-paid, most talented people that you can go out and hire will not perform to their potential unless they feel as if they are part of something special—a family that treats them right."

And

"It was always my goal to create and maintain a working environment both on and off the field that had a sense of urgency and intensity but did not feel like we were in constant crisis mode."

And

"In evaluating people, I prize ego. It often translates into a fierce desire to do their best and an inner confidence that stands them in good stead when things really get rough. Psychologists suggest that there is a strong link between ego and competitiveness. All the great performers I've ever coached had ego to spare."

And

"Extra effort," in whatever form it takes (mental, physical, emotional), cannot be sustained without eventual damage and diminishing returns. There has to be a very acute awareness on your part as to the level of exertion and the toll it's taking on those you lead."

And

"By instinct we-leaders-want to run hard all the time; by intellect we know this is not possible. Reconciling those two positions in the context of leadership is an ongoing challenge."

And

"Concentrate on what will produce results rather than on the results, the process rather than the prize."

And

"Clear thinking and overly charged emotions are usually antithetical."

And

"People matter most-more than equipment, investors, inventions, momentum, or X's and O's. People are at the heart of achieving organizational greatness."

And

"Afford each person the same respect, support, and fair treatment you would expect if your roles were reversed. Deal with people individually, not as objects who are part of a herd-that's the critical factor."

And

"If you care about how you're perceived by others, including the public, it's good to remember the following: Criticism—both deserved and undeserved—is part of the territory when you're the one calling the shots. Ignore the undeserved; learn from the deserved; lick your wounds and move on."

And

"Calculated risks are part of what you do, but the idea that something completely crazy will work just because it's completely crazy is completely crazy."

And

"One of the common traits of outstanding performers-coaches, athletes, managers, sales representatives, executives, and others who face a daily up/down, win/lose accounting system-is that a rejection, that is, defeat, is quickly forgotten, replaced eagerly by pursuit of a new order, client, or opponent."

And

"Nothing is more effective than sincere, accurate praise, and nothing is more lame than a cookie-cutter compliment."

And

"If you are worthy of emulation, you have left an unbelievable legacy. He was a great coach, a great friend, and I'm going to miss him terribly." Former coach Dick Vermeil at Coach Bill Walsh Memorial Service

And

"I came to the San Francisco 49ers with a specific goal - to implement what I call the Standard of Performance. It was a way of doing things, a leadership philosophy, that has as much to do with core values, principles, and ideals as with blocking, tackling, and passing; more to do with the mental than with the physical."

And

"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."

And

"For me, the road had been rocky at times, triumphant too, but along the way I had never wavered in my dedication to installing - teaching - those actions and attitudes I believed would create a great team, a superior organization. I knew that if I achieved that, the score would take care of itself."

And

"For me the starting point for everything - before strategy, tactics, theories, managing, organizing, philosophy, methodology, talent, or experience - is work ethic. Without one of significant magnitude you're dead in the water, finished. I knew the example I set as head coach would be what others in the organization would recognize as the standard they needed to match (at least, most of them would recognize it). If there is such a thing as a trickle-down effect, that's it. Your staff sees your devotion to work, their people see them, and on through the organization."

And

"In building and maintaining your organization, place a premium on those who exhibit great desire to keep pushing themselves to higher and higher performance and production levels, who seek to go beyond the highest standards that you, the leader, set. The employee who gets to work early, stays late, fights through illness and personal problems is the one to keep your eye on for greater responsibilities."

And

"All successful leaders know where we want to go, figure out a way we believe will get the organization there, and then move forward with absolute determination. We may falter from time to time, but ultimately we are unswerving in moving toward our goal; we will not quit. There is an inner compulsion - obsession - to get it done the way you want it done."

And

"Victory is produced by and belongs to all. Winning a Super Bowl results from you whole team not only doing their individual jobs but perceiving that those jobs contributed to overall success. The trophy doesn't belong just to a superstar quarterback or CEO, head coach or top salesperson. This is an essential lesson I taught the San Francisco organization: The offensive team is not a country unto itself, nor is the defensive team or the special teams, staff, coaches, or anyone in the organization separate from the fate of the organization. WE are united and fight as one; we win or lose as one."

Four Leadership Tips From Bill Walsh from...

The Score Takes Care of Itself:  My Philosophy of Leadership, Amazon.com

1. Making The Best Of What You Have

"What assets do we have right now that we're not taking advantage of?"

E.g: Walsh took inventory of his Bengals' struggling offense which was undersized (meaning running the ball was a big challenge) and not capable of passing for long yardage (quarterback Virgil Carter could not throw very far) (though he could throw decently for short yardage).

Walsh then took stock of what he had to work with in terms of field real estate and had an uh-huh realization that they had 53.5 yards of width on the field (about half the distance of the length of the field) and the availability of 5 potential receivers.

Thus the West Coast Offense was born: the idea of throwing more often, to more receivers, for short yardage.

2. Good Leaders Give a Healthy Mix of Positive Criticism (not just negative/constructive criticism).

"If you're growing a garden, you need to pull out the weeds, but flowers will die if all you do is pick weeds. They need sunshine and water. People are the same.

They need criticism, but they also require positive substantive language and information and true support to truly blossom."

3. Good Leaders Look For These Five Qualities In Their Hires

1. A fundamental knowledge of the area they've been hired to manage
2. A relatively high - but not manic - level of energy and enthusiasm and a personality that is upbeat, motivated and animated.
3. The ability to discern talent in potential employees.
4. An ability to communicate in a relaxed yet authoritative - but not authoritarian - manner.
5. Unconditional loyalty to both you and other staff members.

4. The Four Most Powerful Words In Leadership

"I believe in you" (or equivalent words of your own).

Walsh writes that even Joe Montana (who already had a bunch of confidence) benefited from his coach telling him he believed in him.

Providing confidence to your team is perhaps the most powerful lever you can pull to help them optimize their performance.

And Walsh adds: And nobody will ever come back to you later and say "thank you" for expecting too little of them.

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Monday, October 17, 2022 - James Dean

"Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today."

And

"There is no way to be truly great in this world. We are all impaled on the crook of conditioning."

And

"Being an actor is the loneliest thing in the world. You are all alone with your concentration and imagination, and that's all you have."

And

"Only the gentle are ever really strong."

And

"Being a good actor isn't easy. Being a man is even harder. I want to be both before I'm done."

And

"When an actor plays a scene exactly the way a director orders, it isn't acting. It's following instructions. Anyone with the physical qualifications can do that."

And

"If a man can bridge the gap between life and death, if he can live on after he's dead, then maybe he was a great man."

And

"To grasp the full significance of life is the actor's duty; to interpret it is his problem; and to express it is his dedication."

And

"The only greatness for man is immortality."

And

"I also became close to nature, and am now able to appreciate the beauty with which this world is endowed."

If your ass Practices like Total Damn Candy Asses guess how you Play Football?

Like Total Damn Candy Asses!

We could take a dozen members of Coaches Hot Seat all in their 50s down to Stanford today and >

Whip the Living Hell out of the Total Damn Candy Asses on the Stanford Football Team who are NOT

Real Men Nor Real Stanford Students who are TOUGH!

Cut this Worthless Damn Horseshit before it spreads to other Stanford Sports Teams and the rest of the University!

3.  Brent Venables, Oklahoma - We have had what we will call a Very Good Contact within Oklahoma Athletics for a long time now and we have been interested in what this VGC has been telling us about Brent Venables tenure at Oklahoma and last Friday night before the Texas game the OU VGC said to a Coaches Hot Seat Member >

I am still waiting on Brent to start being the Head Coach at Oklahoma. Maybe he will get around to it soon!

That's the Problem >

Brent Venables isn't a Head Football Coach

He’s A Damn Cheerleader!

Memo to Brent Venables > Start Coaching Football Son or you are going to keep Losing and your ass is going to get run out of your dream job!

After the Total Disaster against Texas the Sooners are now 3 - 3 and have left in 2022 >

Iowa State
At Oklahoma State
At Kansas State
TCU
At Kansas
Baylor

Will the Sooners win another game in 2022?

Not if Brent Venables gonna be a Damn Cheerleader instead of a Head Football Coach at Oklahoma!

4.  Pat Fitzgerald, Northwestern - The Biggest Candy Ass in the Midwestern USA = Pat Fitzgerald keeps on proving he's the

Biggest Candy Ass in the Midwestern USA

with a 42 - 7 home loss to Wisconsin which just fired it's Head Coach and the Wildcats now at 1 - 5 and these games left

At Maryland
At Iowa
Ohio State
At Minnesota
At Purdue
Illinois

will Northwestern win another game in 2022?

Better question for Patty Boy >

5.  Bryan Harsin, Auburn - With the loss to Georgia on Saturday that drops Bryan Harsin's record at Auburn below the Mendoza Line at >

9 - 10

and the Damn Idiocy Train continues to roll on Auburn with >

Damn Idiots on All Sides Hiring Football Coaches and we cannot wait to see who Auburn hires to follow Harsin...Guaranteed to be Hilarious!

6.  Jimbo Fisher, Texas A&M - If your ass can play Alabama tough in Tuscaloosa you would think that

Your ass could beat Appy State at Kyle Field!

Right?

Oh Appy State lost to Texas State on Saturday!

There's a Helluva Lot of Talent in College Station but there's >

NO Football Team

and as long as Jimbo Fisher focuses on Coaching Players instead of Building A Football Team this Total Disaster will keep unraveling unless things change in the Bye Week because the 3 - 3 Aggies have left

At South Carolina
Ole Miss
Florida
At Auburn
UMass
LSU

Can the Aggies win 3 of their last 6 games to even get to a .500 record in Jimbo's 5 the season in Aggieland?

If the Aggies lose at South Carolina NOT LIKELY because these Aggies will probably Flat Out Quit on Jimbo and Everyone Else they lose another game!

What happens when your ass is being paid $8M+ a year and you post a Losing Record in Year 5?

Your Ass Gets Run out of Aggieland and out of the Republic of Texas On A Rail!

7.  Mario Cristobal, Miami - We are not quite sure what Mario Cristobal has been doing at Miami in the last 9 months but whatever the Hell it is Mario....

Do Something Different Son!

Lots of folks in College Football been whispering to us for a few years now that...

Mario Cristobal can recruit but he's not much of a Practice or Gameday Coach

Really?

Hell...based upon the way that Miami has looked so far in Mario's Year 1...they may be right!

The 2 - 3 Hurricanes with only wins over Southern Miss and Bethune Cookman have left in 2022 >

At Virginia Tech
Duke
At Virginia
Florida State
At Georgia Tech
At Clemson
Pitt

Hell...Miami not get to 6 Wins in 2022 and Manny Diaz NEVER had a losing season in 3 years coaching the Canes!

Get off your Damn Ass Mario...and quick Son!

Overall: 6 - 12
MAC: 4 - 6

The Bobcats now at 3 - 3 have left this season

At Western Michigan
Northern Illinois

10.  Ken Niumatalolo, Navy - Finally Navy Football is getting a Little Tiny Amount of Fight with a Tough Game against Air Force and a Big Win over Tulsa and now we are interested to see if Navy can keep playing like this or

Post Week 5 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings - Give These Hot Seat Coaches Hell Johnny!

Post Week 5 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

Give these Coaches on the Hot Seat Hell Johnny!

Thank You Mr. Cash

Post Week 5 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

1.  Jeff Scott, South Florida - In 3 seasons at South Florida Head Coach Jeff Scott now has 4 wins and his lone win in the 2022 season is against Howard and only one of his wins is against an American Athletic Conference foe so that all ain't good and look at what the Bulls have left in 2022

At Cincinnati
Tulane
At Houston
At Temple
SMU
At Tulsa
UCF

Will the Bulls win another game this season?

Not likely!

Instead of Jeff Scott asking for "Patience" how about this

Coach Your Damn Football Team Son!

2.  David Shaw, Stanford - The Worthless Candy Ass Tour by the Stanford Cardinal football team continues on under David Shaw with David not having a

Damn Clue of his Total Destruction of Stanford Football

not that Stanford plays the Game of Football anymore since they long ago gave up that game on The Farm!

In the last 4 seasons since David Shaw went Total Damn Pitiful Candy Ass his record is

12 - 22

and the Hits will keep coming because we have little doubt

David Shaw would take down Stanford Football and Stanford University on this

Cross of Idiot Candy Assness

and Laugh, Laugh, Laugh because in our humble opinion

David doesn't give a Damn about anything but his own Damn Candy Ass!

Be Damn Proud David because few have Destroyed So Much with So Much Total Damn Candy Ass Idiocy!

The Cardinal is now 1 - 3 and has left in 2022

Oregon State
At Notre Dame
Arizona State
At UCLA
Washington State
At Utah
At Cal
BYU

Will Stanford win another game this season?

Maybe Not and that says everything about these Worthless Candy Asses on The Farm who are Total Disgrace to Everything that Stanford University claims to stand for or claims to stand for!

3.  Brent Venables, Oklahoma - After seeing Oklahoma get Totally Destroyed by TCU we are not sure what Brent Venables and the Sooners Coaches been doing the last 9 months but your asses either

Haven't been doing much at all or your asses doing everything wrong Son!

Memo to Brent Venables: Football is a physical game Son and you unless you want to go the same way as David Shaw at Stanford = Worthless Candy Ass Losers you better start hitting in practice because the Game of Football

You actually hit, tackle, and whip other people to Win Football Games!

Oklahoma is now 3 - 2 on the season and has left

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

and this Whole Enchilada could go down and quick if Venables doesn't right the ship soon starting with a Win over Texas on Saturday!

4.  Pat Fitzgerald, Northwestern - The Rising Candy Ass of the Midwest is Northwestern Head Coach Pat Fitzgerald who has the Softest Team in Any Sport in the Midwestern United States and before this is over Pat may takedown the Wildcats so much they won't be able to make a splash jumping into Lake Michigan, they will just slide into the Lake softly, like the Total Candy Asses they are now!

The 1 - 4 Wildcats with a lone win over Pitiful Nebraska have left in 2022

Wisconsin
At Maryland
At Iowa
Ohio State
At Minnesota
At Purdue
Illinois

Will Candy Ass Pat and his Candy Ass Cats win another game in 2022?

Not Likely!

Memo to Pat Fitzgerald: Football is a CONTACT SPORT Son so maybe at practice today you can end the Pillow Fights and actually hold a Real Football Practice? Maybe Son?

The Lesson Here for ADs > Don't Let Total Candy Asses Destroy Your Football Program with Candy Ass Damn Idiocy and at the first Hint of Candy Ass = Fire Their Candy Ass!

5.  Tim Albin, Ohio - With the loss to Kent State on Saturday Tim Albin's records at Ohio in 2 seasons now sit at

Overall:  5 - 12
MAC:  3 - 6

and the Bobcats have left in 2022:

Akron
At Western Michigan
Northern Illinois
Buffalo
At Miami (OH)
At Ball State
Bowling Green

Maybe Ohio will get 4 wins in 2022. Maybe!

6.  Ken Niumatalolo, Navy - Navy played better against Air Force before losing by the score of 13 - 10 and now Kenny's record the last 3 seasons since he went Total Damn Candy Ass with Navy Football is sitting at

8 - 18

and it may be too late for Kenny Boy to turn this thing about because just like at Stanford and Northwestern and it looks like Oklahoma when you go

Total Damn Candy Ass

it's really hard to suddenly start playing the Game of Football again!

Navy now at 1 - 3 has left in 2022

Tulsa
At SMU
Houston
Temple
At Cincinnati
Notre Dame
At UCF
Army

A Normal Navy Football Team actually playing the Game of Football would win at least HALF the above games but these Candy Ass Midshipman

Might win 3. Maybe!

7.  Bryan Harsin, Auburn - As we said when Bryan Harsin was hired at Auburn there was No Damn Reason for Auburn to hire Harsin or for Harsin to take the Auburn job but folks who don't know Jack about Auburn for the Game of Football in America will do all kinds of Damn Idiocy and here we sit with

Damn Idiocy going on with Bryan Harsin at Auburn!

It's almost like these folks at do things like hire Bryan Harsin at Auburn just landed from Mars and don't have a Damn Clue about where they work of the Game of College Football in America! Why is that exactly when they are paid Millions of Dollars to actually know what the Hell they are doing?

Harsin is now 9 - 9 in his second season at Auburn and 3 - 2 on the 2022 season and the Tigers have left this season

At Georgia
At Ole Miss
Arkansas
At Mississippi State
Texas A&M
Western Kentucky
At Alabama

Auburn can win 2 or 3 more games in 2022, maybe even 4 more games, but none of that gonna save Harsin's job and when they send Harsin packing the folks at Auburn will hire

Another Head Coach who doesn’t fit the Auburn Culture which they have not had since Pat Dye was the Head Coach of the Tigers so No Doubt More Damn Idiocy ahead on The Plains!

8.  Jimbo Fisher, Texas A&M - Ole Jimbo has just Totally Lost the Plot in Aggieland and this Whole Enchilada is very close to going over the edge from which there will be No Return!

Through 53 games at Texas A&M guess what were/are both Kevin Sumlin and Jimbo Fisher's records?

37 - 16

Yep, both Sumlin and Fisher had the same records after 53 games and the Aggies folks were pushing to Run Sumlin's ass out of Aggieland and if they aren't now doing the same with Jimbo what exactly is going on in Aggieland now?

The Aggies in 2022 are now at 3 - 2 and have left this season

At Alabama
At South Carolina
Ole Miss
Florida
At Auburn
UMass
LSU

Geez, will the Aggies even get 6 wins this season? Probably Not!

9.  Steve Sarkisian, Texas - Since we now know that Oklahoma couldn't whip a Wet Paper Bag this Saturday's game against the Sooners is a MUST WIN for Sarkisian and the Longhorns because lose in this spot with these game left

Iowa State
At Oklahoma State
At Kansas State
TCU
At Kansas
Baylor

Ole Sarkisian might not get 6 wins in 2022 and that would nothing short of a Total Freaking Disaster and Sark's ass getting run right out of Austin right after Thanksgiving!

10.  Scott Satterfield, Louisville - With the loss to Boston College on Saturday Scott Satterfield's records at Louisville now stand at

Overall:  20 - 22
ACC:  12 - 17

and either this thing will turn around soon or there will be a New Head Coach of the Cardinals in 2022!

Louisville is now 2 - 3 on the season and have left

At Virginia
Pitt
Wake Forest
James Madison
At Clemson
NC State
At Kentucky

Damn that's a Tough slate of games and it ain't gonna be easy for Louisville to get to 6 Wins in 2022 and no way Satterfield can survive 3 straight losing seasons.

Just No Way!

Post Week 4 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings - Give These Hot Seat Coaches Hell Johnny!

The 2022 College Football Season is chaotic as ever and rolling along nicely now with 3 Head Coaches already shown the door and many more to come...many, many, many more!

We were told by a Birdie to hold off on the Post Week 4 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings analysis for a few days since another shoe almost dropped after Geoff Collins got run at Georgia Tech at another school to not be named here but that shoe is still hanging...for at least another week or so!

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

Thanks Johnny!

Post Week 4 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

1. Jeff Scott, South Florida - Things keep on rolling along for Jeff Scott at South Florida and not in a good way with a 41 - 3 loss to Louisville who also has a Head Coach on the Hot Seat in Scott Satterfield and now the 1 - 3 Bulls have East Carolina coming to town in a

Must Win Game for Jeff Scott!

Lose in this spot with these games left

At Cincinnati
Tulane
At Houston
At Temple
SMU
At Tulsa
UCF

the Bulls might not win another game in 2022!

Dandy Don is just off stage...Stage Left!

2. David Shaw, Stanford - We had a very unique occurrence last week in that a few of us were in Palo Alto and in tow with us was a guy that played football for Paul "Bear" Bryant at Alabama in the 1970s so we brought him along to watch a portion of a Stanford football practice as the Cardinal got ready for Washington and here was his comment over dinner at Jeffrey's Hamburgers after watching that practice >

"Just what in the Hell was that because that ain't football?"

Can we get an Amen? Make that 12 Amens which is the Number that Paul Bryant wore at Alabama!

We are not sure what David Shaw thinks he has doing with Stanford Fooball over the last few years but if his goal is to

Totally Destroy Stanford Football he is Achieving His Goal!

Stanford now at 1 - 2 after getting Totally Destroyed by Washington, which has a first year Head Coach by the way and was in total chaos when he got to Seattle, the Cardinal has left in 2022

At Oregon
Oregon State
At Notre Dame
Arizona State
At UCLA
Washington State
At Utah
At California
BYU

Our guess...Stanford wins 1 or 2 more games, maybe 3 more games, to finish at 4 - 8 on the season at best and if you watch Stanford Football practice guess what they look and practice like?

A 4 win football team at best!

Beyond Damn Pitiful!

3. Karl Dorrell, Colorado - Only that happened to Colorado Football on Saturday was UCLA came into Boulder and whipped the Buffs 45 - 17 and made it look very easy indeed and Karl Dorrell's records at CU now stand at

Overall: 8 - 14
Pac-12: 6 - 8

The Buffs now at 0 - 4 have left in 2022

At Arizona
California
At Oregon State
Arizona State
Oregon
At USC
At Washington
Utah

Don't think the Buffs gonna win a game in Dorrell's 3 rd year in Boulder!

4. Butch Jones, Arkansas State - With the loss to Old Dominion on Saturday to drop Arkansas State record to 1 - 3 in 2022 Butch Jones in Year 2 at ASU's records now stand at

Overall: 3 - 13
Sun Belt: 1 - 8

With these games left

La. Monroe
James Madison
At Southern Miss
At Louisiana
South Alabama
UMass
At Texas State
Troy

The Red Wolves gonna have a tough time getting to 6 wins in Butch Jones 2 nd year at ASU and they will run your ass Jonesboro for that kind of record, even in Year 2!

5. Pat Fitzgerald, Northwestern - The same disease that is now inflicting Stanford Football

Total Powder Puff Candy Ass Syndrome

has taken over the Northwestern Football program as well with Head Coach Pat Fitzgerald turning the Wildcats into the

Biggest Candy Asses East of the Mississippi River

and to what end we don't know exactly why but back-to-back losses to Southern Illinois and Miami of Ohio has Northwestern looking a lot like Stanford >

Such Big Candy Asses that the Northwestern Chess Club could whip the Wildcats and make em like it!

Now at 1 - 3 on the season with a lone win over Nebraska which Every Grandma Knitting Club in America could whip like a red-headed stepchild and make em like it the Wildcats have left in 2022

At Penn State
Wisconsin
At Maryland
At Iowa
Ohio State
At Minnesota
At Purdue
Illinois

Will the Softer than the Pillsbury Dough Boy Wildcats win another game in 2022?

Is the Pillsbury Dough Boy Soft as Hell?

Yep the Wildcats lone win in 2022 will be over a team that the Over 50 Years Old Only Ladies Coffee Klatch Club of Evanston could whip and make em like it = Nebraska!

Be Proud Pat Fitzgerald!

We didn't think it was possible to field a team SOFTER than Stanford but you have done it and that's something Son!

6. Tim Albin, Ohio - Ole Tim Albin took over a pretty good Ohio Football Program from Frank Solich and has posted record of

Overall: 5 - 11
MAC: 3 - 5

and now at 2 - 2 on the 2022 season after a Big Big Win over Fordham on Saturday the Bobcats have left in 2022

At Kent State
Akron
At Western Michigan
Northern Illinois
Buffalo
At Miami (OH)
At Ball State
Bowling Green

After going 3 - 9 in Year 1 at Ohio we would recommend that Tim Albin find a way to get to 6 wins in 2022 or it's Dandy Don time!

7. Steve Sarkisian, Texas - With the loss to Texas Tech which no Texas team should EVER lose to Steve Sarkisian records at Texas now stand at

Overall: 7 - 9
Big 12: 3 - 7

and if this kind of losing continues then Arch Manning, if he decided ultimately to attend Texas, will be playing for a new Head Coach in 2023 in Austin!

The Longhorns are now 2 - 2 on the season and have left in 2022

West Virginia
Oklahoma
Iowa State
At Oklahoma State
At Kansas State
TCU
At Kansas
Baylor

Can the Horns win 4 of their remaining 8 games?

Maybe or Maybe Not but consider this

Tom Herman got his ass run at Texas posting records of

7 - 6
10 - 4
8 - 5
7 - 3

Does anyone think Steve Sarkisian could survive posting 2 losing seasons in his first 2 years at Texas?

Not A Chance In Hell!

8. Mike Bloomgren, Rice - In 4 seasons at Rice Mike Bloomgren has posted records of

Overall: 13 - 33
CUSA: 9 - 20

and sooner or later someone in Houston is gonna say >

That ain't very good Son!

With the loss to Houston and now 2 - 2 on the season Rice has left in 2022

UAB
At FAU
At La. Tech
Charlotte
UTEP
At Western Kentucky
UTSA
At North Texas

We would recommend that Mike Bloomgren win the next 2 Very Damn Winnable Games or you can turn out the lights in Houston for Ole Mike!

9. Ken Niumatalolo, Navy - In a miracle of sorts Navy was able to best East Carolina in double overtime on Saturday to get their first win of the season and now the 1 - 2 Sailors at the US Naval Academy have left in 2022

At Air Force
Tulsa
Houston
Temple
At Cincinnati
Notre Dame
At UCF
Army

Geez...will Navy win more than 3 games in 2022?

Not Likely!

10. Scot Loeffler, Bowling Green - In 4 seasons at Bowling Green Scot Loeffler's records now stand at

Overall: 8 - 24
MAC: 4 - 7

Enough said on Scot Loeffler at Bowling Green!

Post Week 3 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings - Give These Hot Seat Coaches Hell Johnny!

The College Football Season is Really Roaring now as we moved right through Week 3 like a knife through warm butter and that's the nature of life when you get past 50 years old

It just goes Rip Roaring along so make Damn sure you living Every Damn Day!

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

Thanks Johnny!

Before we get to the Post Week 3 Coaches Hot Seat Ranking a word or two on the firing of Herm Edwards at Arizona State

Ole Herm is a Great Guy but come on now

Why was Herm Edwards ever hired at Arizona State?

When you find the answer to the above question please let us know...would you now?

Post Week 3 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

1. Jeff Scott, South Florida - Jeff Scott and this USF Bulls almost got a win over the Florida Gators in The Swamp who played like they were hardly coached at all Billy Napier and with another loss Scott's records at USF now stand at

Overall: 4 - 20
AAC: 1 - 14

Now the Bulls have left

At Louisville
East Carolina
At Cincinnati
Tulane
At Houston
At Temple
SMU
At Tulsa
UCF

Geez...maybe the Bulls can win 2 or 3 of those games...if they play better than they played against Florida that is!

2. David Shaw, Stanford - There's just no explaining Stanford Head Coach David Shaw deciding to turn the Cardinal Football Program from one of the

Toughest Programs in College Football to the Biggest Bunch of Pillow Fight Loving Candy Asses in America

but David has done it and now there really is no longer a Football Program on the Stanford campus and there's little doubt the

Stanford Chess Club could Whip the Hell out of the Stanford Football Team and...Make Them Like It!

Over the last 4 seasons David Shaw's record now stands at

12 - 20

and most of those 12 Wins over Sub-.500 teams and now the 1 - 1 Cardinal gets a trip to Husky Stadium in Seattle who are coached by new Head Coach Kalen DeBoer and talk about an Ass Kicking...

The Cardinal are about to....Get Their Asses Kicked by Washington = A Real Football Team!

What's left for Stanford >

At Washington
At Oregon
Oregon State
At Notre Dame
Arizona State
At UCLA
Washington State
At Utah
At California
BYU

Probably 3 - 9....Maybe 4 - 8 for Stanford in 2022 and it would take Major Miracle for the Cardinal to get 6 wins which is

Just A Total Damn Disgrace on Every Level Imaginable!

3. Karl Dorrell, Colorado - Karl Dorrell's Buffs got their asses handed to them on Saturday by Minnesota by the score of

49 - 7

which drops Colorado's 2022 record to 0 - 3 with games still left against

UCLA
At Arizona
California
At Oregon State
Arizona State
Oregon
At USC
At Washington
Utah

Now in his 3 rd season at Colorado Karl Dorrell should win 7+ games with the above schedule but reality is

The Buffs might not win a game in 2022!

4. Ken Niumatalolo, Navy - Navy had Week 3 off and Thank Goodness for that because the Midshipmen no doubt needed to have lots of Pillow Fights and High Tea to get ready for the rest of the 2022 season and 0 - 2 Navy has left under Kenny Boy games against

At East Carolina
At Air Force
Tulsa
At SMU
Houston
Temple
At Cincinnati
Notre Dame
At UCF
Army

Will Navy win even 1 game in 2022?

Probably Not!

Back to the Pillow Fights Boys and don't forget High Team you Damn Candy Asses!

Signed,
15+ US Navy Combat Vets at Coaches Hot Seat Totally Ashamed of what Navy Football has become!

5. Butch Jones, Arkansas State - We didn't give Arkansas State much chance to win at Memphis on Saturday but they kinda made it a game and with that loss the Red Wolves are now 1 - 2 on the season and Butch Jones records at Arkansas State now stand at

Overall: 3 - 12

Sun Belt: 1 - 7

Arkansas State has left in 2022

At Old Dominion
La. Monroe
James Madison
At Southern Miss
At Louisiana
South Alabama
UMass
At Texas State
Troy

There's a few winnable games left on the Arkansas State schedule but will they get to 6 wins in 2022?

Not A Damn Chance in Hell or Highwater or even Low Water!

6. Geoff Collins,. Georgia Tech - Getting whipped 42 - 0 by Ole Miss isn't a recommendation when you looking to hang onto a job but Geoff Collins Georgia Tech team did get whipped by the Rebels 42 - 0 and Collins records in 4 seasons at Tech now stand at

Overall: 10 - 27

ACC: 7 - 19

The Yellowjackets have left in 2022

At UCF
At Pitt
Duke
Virginia
At Florida State
At Virginia Tech
Miami
At North Carolina
At Georgia

Turn out the Lights

7. Jimbo Fisher, Texas A&M - We finally found an offense more inept than Jimbo Fisher's Aggies offense

The Miami Offense = What A Total Disaster It Is Mario!

and luckily for Jimbo Ole Mario Cristobal has his hands in the Canes offense just like he did at Oregon which F-Up the Ducks offense totally and it looks like that's continuing in Miami!

Back to Jimbo who got a Total Gift from the Canes on Saturday to move the Aggies record to 2 - 1 on the season with these games left

Arkansas in Dallas
At Mississippi State
At Alabama
At South Carolina
Ole Miss
Florida
At Auburn
UMass
LSU

Geez...the Aggies loses to the Razorbacks on Sunday they might not win another game until they host UMass on November 19!

Our guess is the Aggies win 4 or 5 of their remaining games to finish at 6 - 6 or 7 - 5 and that would be $38 Million Dollars paid to Jimbo Fisher to do something that

Bozo the Clown coulda done for $100K a year = $500K Total!

8. Scott Satterfield, Louisville - With the loss to Florida State on Saturday to drop the Louisville record to 1 - 2 on the season that leaves Satterfield's record at Louisville now at

Overall: 19 - 21

ACC: 12 - 16

That's Pitiful...Damn Pitiful and Louisville has left in 2022

South Florida
At Boston College
Virginia
Pitt
Wake Forest
James Madison
At Clemson
NC State
At Kentucky

Maybe Louisville can get to 6 wins in 2022 but should Satterfield’s 4 th season at Louisville be about Maybe getting to 6 wins?

Nope!

9. Pat Fitzgerald, Northwestern - A couple of weeks ago we thought that Northwestern beating Nebraska was something but now we know

A Wet Paper Sack could be the Huskers

and now Pat Fitzgerald team loses at home in back-to-back games to

Duke
Southern Illinois

Whatever they are paying Pat Fitzgerald at Northwestern if it's over 10 cents per game it's way Damn too much because this is just a

Total Damn Disgrace

and couldn't have happened to a Bigger Ass who believes his ass spun up the entire Universe when his ass hasn't worked a day in his Pitiful Life off the Northwestern campus and he couldn't run a lemonade stand in downtown Evanston on the best Damn day of his Damn life!

If you are going to be a Total Damn Arrogant Ass Patty Boy

Win some Damn Football Games Son and don't lose...wait for it...to

Southern Illinois at home Son!

10. Tim Albin, Ohio - Since taking over a Pretty, Pretty Good football program from Frank Solich at Ohio Ole Tim Albin has now posted records of

Overall: 4 - 11

MAC: 3 - 5

and now at 1 - 2 on the year the Bobcats have left in 2022

Fordham
At Kent State
Akron
At Western Michigan
Northern Illinois
Buffalo
At Miami (Ohio)
At Ball State
Bowling Green

What...3 or 4 more wins tops for Ohio in 2022?

Whatever...it ain't good!

Post Week 2 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings - Give These Hot Seat Coaches Hell Johnny!

There's a lot we could write here about Nebraska firing Scott Frost but in 4+ seasons Frost was...

16 - 31 .340

...and Mike Riley in 3 seasons at Nebraska had a record of...

19 - 19 .500

By all rights Frost shoulda been fired after last season but he had a $20M+ buyout and now his buyout $16M+ after getting run and clearly...

Scott Frost had to be fired!

....for lots of reasons but mainly because watching the Huskers play their first 3 games in 2022...

They look hardly coached at all!

What a Helluva Week and for all those Damn Morons who claimed that NIL + Transfer Portal was going to benefit the...

Biggest Most Powerful Football Programs

...and what your Damn Moron Asses got to say about..

Marshall over Notre Dame
Appy State over Texas A&M

...not to mention a few other upsets that raised our eyebrows and for those you don't know...

Coaching > Roster Talent

....which maybe one day your asses will wake-up too because lots these College Football Head Coaches...

Don't Have A Damn Clue what they are doing!

Come on out Mr. Cash and give these Hot Seat Coaches Hell!

Thanks Johnny!

Post Week 2 Coaches Hot Seat Ranking

1. Jimbo Fisher, Texas A&M - If you want to see a football team that has Totally Tuned out their Head Coach + Assistant Coaches put on tape of the Appy State at Texas A&M game from Saturday and you will see...

Lots of Aggies players playing at 50% or Less Effort who don't give 1 Damn Rip what Jimbo Fisher says, does, or Damn anything else for that matter!

We been telling anyone that will listen that Jimbo Fisher has created a Helluva Problem in Aggieland by becoming King Jimbo and not being involved with Players on a daily basis and that reality has now reached Gameday and we could be looking at a Total Tailspin and Massive Crash & Burn with the Aggies if they lose another game and...

Here comes the Miami Hurricanes under new Head Coach Mario Cristobal to Aggieland which gonna pop the Aggies in the mouth and make em like it!

Lose to Miami in this spot with Arkansas in Dallas on deck and then this schedule...

At Mississippi State
At Alabama
At South Carolina
Ole Miss
Florida
At Auburn
UMass
LSU

...Jimbo and the Aggies be Damn Lucky to win 6 games in 2022 and Jimbo wins less than 8 Wins this season according to our Aggies alum buddies...

"We are going to run Jimbo’s ass right out of the State of Texas forget about just College Station!"

Most Amazing Thing about Aggies loss to Appy State on Saturday is that was...wait for it....

Jimbo Fisher's 50 th Freaking Football Game Coaching Texas A&M and that is what he has built in 50 games...what he put on the field against the Mountaineers?

How can Jimbo Fisher even go into work and collect a paycheck after that Total Horseshit Crapola he and the Aggies Coaches put on the field Saturday?

Shameful comes to mind but it's worse than that...this is Borderline Flat-Out Quitting As Coaches!

If the Aggies don't show up against Miami on Saturday then Jimbo and the entire Aggies staff should be fired and bring in some Pee Wee Coaches to coach the Aggies who actually Give A Damn and will get A&M ready to play football games!

We may just have 2 College Football Programs passing each other at Kyle Field on Saturday...

Miami headed UP

Texas A&M headed back to the Dumpster on Fire going down river!

Dumpster Fire GIFs - Get the best GIF on GIPHY

2. Jeff Scott, South Florida - With a Win over Howard on Saturday Ole Jeff Scott has now won...wait for it...4 games at USF in 3 seasons and Ole Scott may not win another game for awhile >

At Florida
At Louisville
East Carolina
At Cincinnati
Tulane
At Houston
At Temple
SMU
At Tulsa
UCF

We be stunned if USF won more than 1 more game in 2022...Totally Stunned!

3. David Shaw, Stanford - If not for Lincoln Riley calling off the Trojans Offense against Stanford in the 2 nd half USC would have easily scored 100+ points on David Shaw's Cardinal which really is no longer a...

Football Team or Football Program

It's just now...Damn Nothing!

Disgraceful come to mind

Pitiful comes to mind

But what really comes to mind is that the Super Duper Tea Party Candy Ass Football Program that David Shaw has allowed Stanford Football to become is a...

Total Disgrace to Stanford University and to the Game of Football in America!

This isn't Football that is Stanford is playing....it's Sub Tiddly-Winks with Candy Asses everywhere you look that couldn't punch there way out of a wet paper sack on the best Damn day of their lives!

Now at 1 - 1 Shaw and Stanford have left...

At Washington
At Oregon
Oregon State
At Notre Dame
Arizona State
At UCLA
Washington State
At Utah
At California
BYU

Geez...what now...Stanford might win 4 games total in 2022? Maybe...if they are Damn Lucky!

It’s Just A Damn Freaking Disgrace!

4. Karl Dorrell, Colorado - On Saturday Karl Dorrell coached his 20 the game as the Head Coach at Colorado against Air Force and...wait for it....

The Buffs got TOTALLY DESTROYED by the score of 41 - 10!

Why exactly Karl Dorrell was hired at Colorado we will never know because the hire made....

No Damn Sense if your ass actually watched Karl coach at UCLA

AND/OR

Your ass has a 2+ IQ!

Karl Dorrell is a terrific guy and human being and we wish his ass was winning at Colorado but this....

Is A Damn Disgrace to the University of Colorado and Football in America!

Now at 0 - 2 on the season the Buffs have left in 2022....

At Minnesota
UCLA
At Arizona
California
At Oregon State
Arizona State
Oregon
At USC
At Washington
Utah

Geez....the Buffs might not win a game in 2022!

We'll go 2 - 10 record for Colorado in 2022 as a guess and our humble opinion!

5. Scot Loeffler, Bowling Green - With the loss to FCS Eastern Kentucky on Saturday Bowling Green Head Coach Scot Loeffler's records in 4 seasons at the school are now...

Overall: 7 - 24
MAC: 4 - 17

Nothing else needs to said or written on Loeffler!

6. Marcus Freeman, Notre Dame - We have been watching Notre Dame Football since the early 1970s and since the Irish play USC and Stanford every season we have seen lots of Notre Dame games in person in South Bend, Los Angeles, Palo Alto, and at bowl games and here's what we know about Notre Dame Football!

No one with a 2+ IQ and/or has watched 1 Down of Football in their lives on any Damn level would hire...

Someone to be the Head Coach at Notre Dame unless they have been a SUCCESSFUL College Head Coach before!

Hiring an Assistant Coach at Notre Dame who never even sniffed a Head Coaching Job forget about being SUCCESSFUL in that job is...

Total and Complete Stupidity and Level of Human Ignorance that goes beyond the 2003 Iraq War which only a....

Total Damn Moron would have launched and George W. Bush is one of the Stupidest Bastards we ever run into and we known W since the early 1980s!

Memo to Marcus Freeman since your ass knows NOTHING about being Head Coach Son >

Your ONLY JOB Son is to deliver your football team to Gameday...wait for it...is...

READY TO PLAY FOOTBALL!

We are not talking about having a Great Gameplan and making sure your football team is ready on the physical side to play the game....Any Damn Moron Coach can do that if he has a 2+ IQ...we are talking about something far more important Son...

Making Damn Sure Your Football Team is READY To Play the Game!

The Irish on Saturday were...

NOT READY TO PLAY Marshall and that....

WAS YOUR ONLY DAMN JOB KID which your ass is being paid Millions of Dollars to do and if you can't do that Son guess what....

Your Ass Is Going To Get Run....and after Season 1!

This is the Damn Leagues Son not Podunk U so Get Off Your Damn Ass and Coach the Notre Dame Football Team and don't you dare lose to California on Saturday....or your ass might get run right after the game! Kidding of course now…but highly recommend you don’t lose to Cal because if you do Son the folks with the $$$ around Notre Dame gonna start talking about putting a pot of $$$ together to buy you and Jack out!

7. Ken Niumatalolo, Navy - The Complete Destruction of Navy Football continues under Ken Niumatalolo with a loss to Memphis by 3+ touchdowns on Saturday and in the last 3 seasons Kenny Boy has put up records of....

3 - 7
4 - 8
0 - 2

....and we don't see any end in sight of this Total Damn Madness and Complete Destruction of Navy Football...until Ken and his Candy Ass Football is...

Banished from the US Naval Academy....FOREVER!

End This Damn Idiocy already!

8. Butch Jones, Arkansas State - With the Arkansas State loss to Ohio State by score of 45 - 12 on Saturday Butch Jones records at ASU now stand at....

Overall: 3 - 11

Sun Belt: 1 - 7

....and the Sun Belt just proved it's No Damn Joke on Saturday so with these games left....

At Memphis
At Old Dominion
La. Monroe
James Madison
At Southern Miss
At Louisiana
South Alabama
UMass
Texas State
Troy

....it ain’t gonna be easy to get the Red Wolves to 6 wins in 2022 and the Arkansas State folks are exactly patient with coaches that don't get them to at least 6 wins every season!

9. Geoff Collins, Georgia Tech - The Yellow Jackets beat Western Carolina on Saturday which is Geoff Collins...

10 th Win in 4 seasons at Georgia Tech

....and with these games left on the schedule....

Ole Miss
At UCF
At Pitt
Duke
Virginia
At Florida State
At Virginia Tech
Miami
At North Carolina
At Georgia

....it ain't exactly like there are lots of Wins left on Tech's schedule now!

We'll guess 4 - 8 and see if Collins can beat our guess!

10. Steve Sarkisian, Texas - Sometimes you gotta wonder about a Coach like Sarkisian calling pass plays from inside the 5 yard-line with a Freshman QB on the field that ends up getting the Freshman QB injured and out of a game where he's playing some good football, but these are things that....

Great Coaches Think About and A Great Coach

....is not Damn throwing the ball from the 2-yard line and getting his Freshman QB hurt when playing Alabama when you had to know Bama would be coming after his ass!

We really also don't have Damn Clue what Alabama OC Bill O'Brien was doing on Saturday who easily called one of the....

Worst Offensive Games in recent College Football History

....throwing the ball lots when Alabama could have used their running game to pound Texas and hang onto the football but....

Arrogant Asses have to prove their Ass can do something and Billy Boy called lots of pass plays to prove what exactly....that his ass could?

In a game Alabama should have won by 2+ Touchdowns on Billy Boy with Little Nicky listening in on the headset called Dumb Play after Dumb Play and if Texas could tackle as well as Aunt Mildred they easily beat Alabama or if Sark would just....

Run the Damn Ball at the Endzone he doesn't get his Freshman QB hurt and Texas wins the game!

Stupid...Just Plain Stupidity on both side of this Bama - Horns game!

Now at 1 - 1 when Texas should be 2 - 0 and rolling with a win over Alabama the Horns have left in 2022....

UTSA
At Texas Tech
West Virginia
Oklahoma
Iowa State
At Oklahoma State
At Kansas State
TCU
At Kansas
Baylor

Texas could easily lose to UTSA at home and the rest of those games are No Damn Joke either including at Kansas so don't think that just because Sark and Texas gave Alabama a good game...remember now..

Billy Boy O'Brien Dumber than Anyone on Earth…well not as Dumb as George W Bush now

....that they will roll rest of the 2022 because their asses could easily lose 5+ games this season and that happens....

Watch Out Now because Sark's ass is getting run!

Post Week 1 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings - Give These Hot Seat Coaches Hell Johnny!

 

Week 1 of the 2022 College Football Season was interesting alright, but especially interesting for the Coaches on the Hot Seat and has set-up some fascinating games in the coming weeks that could lead to some...

Big Job Openings in 2022

....and with that let's bring out the Late Great Johnny Cash!

Give these Hot Seat Coaches Hell Johnny!

Thanks Mr. Cash!

Post Week 1 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

1. Scott Frost, Nebraska - It's hard to know what to make of the 2022 Nebraska football team but they seem to be playing a lot like the Scott Frost Nebraska teams of the past few years and seeing that Cornhuskers were tied with North Dakota at half on their home field on Saturday at 7 - 7 one can only Sigh and wonder just where in the Hell this train is going?

Nowhere it looks like to us...Just Damn Nowhere!

Now at 1 - 1 on the season Nebraska has left....

Georgia Southern
Oklahoma
Indiana
At Rutgers
At Purdue
Illinois
Minnesota
At Michigan
Wisconsin
At Iowa

....and a Birdie in Omaha with 2 University of Nebraska degrees on this wall in his office told us this past Sunday that....

"Frost is going to need 7...maybe 8 wins...to come back next season."

Well....can Nebraska get to 7 wins with the above schedule?

Probably Not and No Chance in Hell Huskers get to 7 wins in 2022 if they continue to play the way they played in the first two games of the season!

2. Jeff Scott, South Florida - The Hits Keep Coming for Jeff Scott at South Florida with an opening game ROUT by BYU of the Bulls by the score of....

50 - 21

...which drops Scott's overall record at USF to....

3 - 19

South Florida has left in 2022....

Howard
At Florida
At Louisville
East Carolina
At Cincinnati
Tulane
At Houston
At Temple
SMU
At Tulsa
UCF

Geez....that's a Tough Schedule and will lead to a....

3 - 9....maybe 4 - 8 at BEST record for USF in 2022 and no doubt if that happens a Very Damn Good Job will come open in Tampa come December!

3. Geoff Collins, Georgia Tech - Georgia Tech looked against Clemson much liked they looked the 3 seasons....

Not Very Well Coached and Often Confused

We don't know what is going on at Georgia Tech practices but it ain't good in our humble opinion and with this left on the Tech schedule....

Western Carolina
Ole Miss
At UCF
At Pitt
Duke
Virginia
At Florida State
At Virginia Tech
Miami
At North Carolina
At Georgia

....there ain't a chance in Hell of Tech winning more than 4 games in 2022 and a Very Damn Good Job will come open in Atlanta come December!

4. David Shaw, Stanford - Every since Stanford Football went to....

Total Cream Puff Offseason Conditioning Program

AND

Total Powder Puff Football Practices

....before the 2019 season the Stanford program has been in a Total Damn Freefall and it's....

No Surprise to Anyone with a 2+ IQ

....because when your ass is running....

Total Creampuff and Total Powder Puff Operation guess what your ass becomes....

Worthless Candy Asses = Stanford Football Today!

In the last 3+ seasons under David Shaw the Cardinal record now stands at....

12 - 24

...and of those 12 Wins.....

Only 4 were against teams with .500+ records!

For all intents purposes....

Stanford Football No Longer Exists on The Farm....it's just a Big Collection of Worthless Candy Asses that a Sorority Powder Puff Team could whip and make the Cardinal Players like it!

What will happen on Saturday when USC comes to town in the 2 nd game under Lincoln Riley?

The Stanford Cardinal will Huff and Puff and Talk Tough....and then Run and Hide like the Damn Cowards they as they get their asses whipped in their own stadium!

Cue Jed Clampett....

5. Steve Sarkisian, Texas - We fully expect Nicky Saban to keep a tight reign on his Alabama football team on Saturday and not blow the Longhorns out of their own stadium because mainly what Nick wants to see happen....

Steve Sarkisian to stay at Texas for as long as possible because the Last Damn Thing Nick wants is someone coaching at Texas that knows what the Hell he is doing as they come into the SEC Conference!

We will go a 20 to 24 point win for Bama over Texas which will leave the Horns at 1 - 1 on the season with these games left....

UTSA
At Texas Tech
West Virginia
Oklahoma
Iowa State
At Oklahoma State
At Kansas State
TCU
At Kansas
Baylor

IF and it's a big IF Texas can beat UTSA in Week 3 it's still going to be very hard for Texas to get to 6 wins in 2022 with that schedule...Very Damn Hard!

Could Steve Sarkisian survive posting back-to-back losing seasons in his first 2 seasons at Texas?

laughing,dead,hilary duff,funny,tvland,yas,younger,youngertv,too funny,cracking up

6. Karl Dorrell, Colorado - Karl Dorrell is a great guy but for the life of us we haven't a Damn Clue why Colorado AD Rick George hired Dorrell before the 2020 season and after seeing first year Head Coach Sonny Dykes bring his new TCU team into Boulder and whip Karl's ass in his 3 rd season at CU we gotta wonder Rick....

What Really Son was your ass thinking when you hired Karl Dorrell?

Dorrell is now....

Overall: 8 - 11
Pac-12: 6 - 7

....and has these games left to play in 2022....

At Air Force
At Minnesota
UCLA
At Arizona
California
At Oregon State
Arizona State
Oregon
At USC
At Washington
Utah

If you can find 6 wins for Colorado on the above schedule you are better folks than us!

7. Scott Loeffler, Bowling Green - In his 4 th season on the job at Bowling Green Scott Loeffler after the loss to UCLA to open the season is sitting on records of....

Overall: 7 - 23
MAC: 4 - 17

....and that ain't good as someone once said and Bowling Green has left to play in 2022....

Eastern Kentucky
Marshall
At Mississippi State
At Akron
Miami (Ohio)
At Central Michigan
Western Michigan
Kent State
At Toledo
At Ohio

Geez....Cue Dandy Don....

8. Ken Niumatalolo, Navy - Hey now....Ken Niumatalolo is a great guy but much like David Shaw at Stanford since Kenny Boy went to a.....

Total Powder Puff and Cream Puff Navy Football Program

...before the 2020 season he has turned his Navy Sailors into the Biggest Damn Candy Asses this side of the Stanford Football Players who are Bigger Candy Asses than the Navy Players and if the two teams did meet to play a game what we could do is give all of them pillows and they could have a Big Pillow Fight in the middle of the field and then afterwards serve High Tea like the Total Candy Asses both teams are!

Marie Monti GIFs - Get the best GIF on GIPHY

Getting back to Navy if the Naval Academy wants to keep putting Total Candy Asses into the US Navy = The Fleet and mind you there are....

15+ US Navy Combat Veterans who are Members at Coaches Hot Seat

....then fine but don't come to us crying that The Fleet is filling up with a bunch of Worthless Candy Asses that Ole Kenny Boy is turning out who has posted a record the past 3 seasons of since Kenny went Total Powder Puff + Cream Puff of....

7 - 15

....which includes an opening 2022 season loss at home to....wait for it....

Delaware

Memo to Ken Niumatalolo: Quit being a Worthless Candy Ass Son and Start Coaching Real Football again at the US Naval Academy!

0 - 1 Navy has left in 2022....

Memphis
East Carolina
At Air Force
Tulsa
At SMU
Houston
Temple
At Cincinnati
Notre Dame
At UCF
Army

Cue Dandy Don for the Worthless Candy Ass Cowards of the Naval Academy Football Team!

Signed,
15+ US Navy Combat Vets at Coaches Hot Seat

9. Butch Jones, Arkansas State - In Week 1 of the 2022 season Butch Jones and Arkansas State whipped Grambling at home which is like saying they whipped....

AIR!

Now that football season is actually going to start here is what Arkansas State has coming....

At Ohio State
At Memphis
At Old Dominion
La. Monroe
James Madison
At Southern Miss
At Louisiana
South Alabama
UMass
At Texas State
Troy

Maybe Butch Jones can get Arkansas State to 6 wins in 2022....probably not!

10. Scott Satterfield, Louisville - The turning point and downward slide for Scott Satterfield at Louisville is when he secretly and quickly found out by the media interviewed for the South Carolina job after the 2020 season coming off of...wait for it....

4 - 7 season

....and now sitting on records of....

Overall: 18 - 20

ACC: 12 - 15

....the 2022 season is Satterfield's Waterloo and every loss will make things just that much difficult starting with the game this coming Friday night at UCF which is a MUST WIN for Scott for Damn Sure and then after UCF the Cardinals still have to play....

Florida State
South Florida
At Boston College
At Virginia
Pitt
Wake Forest
James Madison
At Clemson
NC State
At Kentucky

Geez....if Louisville loses to UCF to start 0 - 2 there's just no way they win 6 of their last 10 games with that schedule and our guess a year from today or rather before Christmas the Head Coach of the Louisville Cardinals football team will be....

Jeff Brohm

Just a guess!

On to Week 2 and as always....

Let's Play Football!

The 2022 College Football Season Will Be Coaches Hot Seat 16th Season Covering the Great Game of College Football - Give These Hot Seat Coaches Hell Johnny Cash! 

It's hard to believe it but the 2022 College Football Season is upon us and Coaches Hot Seat is back for a 16 th year of covering the CFB Hot Seat Coaches and everything else that comes to our minds! 2021 was a tough year here at Coaches Hot Seat losing a couple of folks and one of the Heart + Souls of Coaches Hot Seat going back to early days back in the Fall of 2006 when a few of us came up with the idea of Coaches Hot Seat at The Balboa Cafe in the Marina District of San Francisco but we are re-energized for the 2022 CFB Season and with that let's bring out the Great Johnny Cash!

Give These Hot Seat Coaches Hell Johnny!

Thanks Johnny!

1. Scott Frost, Nebraska - Hell...we thought by Year 2 that Scott Frost would have Nebraska Football rolling again but the Nebraska Wonder Boy has fallen flat on this face in Lincoln and in 4 seasons on the job is sitting on records of...

Overall: 15 - 29

Big Ten: 10 - 25

...and if that isn't Total Failure we don't know what Total Failure and so far Scott Frost at Nebraska has been a...

Total Failure!

The Cornhuskers get things rolling early in 2022 with a game in Dublin, Ireland against Northwestern and talk about...

A Helluva Must Win Game

...this is a Helluva On Steroids Must Win Game for Scott Frost because lose in this spot with these games left...

North Dakota
Georgia Southern
Oklahoma
Indiana
At Rutgers
At Purdue
Illinois
Minnesota
At Michigan
Wisconsin
At Iowa

...there ain't a Chance In Hell or Highwater or Lincoln that Frost finishes with a Winning Season and Frost at a bare minimum to stay employed in the Great State of Nebraska has to have...

6 Wins in 2022...Hell he probably needs 7+!

Give Em Hell Scott!

2. Jeff Scott, South Florida - Talk about a Total Failure look at what Jeff Scott has done at South Florida in 2 seasons on the job >

Overall: 3 - 18

AAC: 1 - 14

Bozo the Clown's pet dog could have posted a better record than what Scott put up the last 2 years at USF and either the boy will get things righted in 2022 or it will over in Tampa!

South Florida 2022 Schedule >

BYU
Howard
At Florida
At Louisville
East Carolina
At Cincinnati
Tulane
At Houston
SMU
At Tulsa
UCF

So a kid that has won 3 games in 2 seasons at USF is gonna win 6 games with that schedule in 2022?

Got Not A Chance In Hell?

Yep!

3. Geoff Collins, Georgia Tech - We are not sure what the folks at Georgia Tech expected when they hired Geoff Collins 3 seasons ago but it ain't this...

2019: 3 - 9
2020: 3 - 7
2021: 3 - 9

Overall: 9 - 25

ACC: 7 - 18

This is very simple for Geoff Collins...either get to 6+ wins in 2022 with this schedule...

Clemson
Western Carolina
Ole Miss
At UCF
At Pitt
Duke
Virginia
At Florida State
At Virginia Tech
Miami
At North Carolina
At Georgia

...or it's Dandy Don Turn Out the Lights the Party's Over Time!

Got Georgia Tech will have a new head football coach by Christmas?

Yep!

Merry Christmas!

4. David Shaw, Stanford - The Stanford Folks at Coaches Hot Seat count themselves lucky to have seen the decade long roll that Stanford Football got on between 2009 and 2018 under Jim Harbaugh and David Shaw but now you ask any of them what the Hell is going on on The Farm they will sigh and say...

"It's a Damn Disaster!"

One Stanford alum at Coaches Hot Seat has gotten to see both Stanford and USC practice in the month of August and his evaluation is...

"USC looks like they are ready to light up the Pac-12 and unleash Hellfire on the Pac-12 and College Football under Lincoln Riley!"

AND

"Stanford looks like the Biggest Group of Candy Ass Cotton Candy No Damn Hit Anyone Tea Party Holding Lightweights this side of Pee Wee Herman! Check that…Pee Wee Herman is Tough as Nails compared to these Candy Asses and the last few year’s Stanford team that would be lucky to punch out a hole in a wet In-n-Out bag holding the hamburger and fries that I ate in disgust after seeing Stanford Football practice!"

It Be True...Stanford Football has gone from Winning the Pac-12 and Rose Bowl and 2015 to only 7 years later...

The Biggest Bunch of No Tackling and No Hitting and No Football Playing Candy Asses in America and we have no doubt we could take..

Dozen 50+ year olds down to The Farm and whip the Hell out of David Shaw’s Not A Damn Football Team in a game and in a physical fight after the game and make David and all his Cardinal Candy Asses like it!

The last 3 seasons David Shaw has put up records of...

Overall: 11 - 19

Pac-12: 9 - 15

...and the Cardinal has to face in 2022...

Colgate
USC
At Washington
At Oregon
Oregon State
At Notre Dame
Arizona State
At UCLA
Washington State
At Utah
At California
BYU

Got there is No Damn Chance of Stanford finishing with 6 wins in 2022?

Yep...and if Lincoln Riley and USC comes to The Farm and whips the Cardinal in Week 2 the Damn Team may just flat-out quit on Shaw and Shaw will find his ass fired from his alma mater before the 2022 season is over and if that happens the entire Damn Stanford Athletic Department Leadership will be fired as well because they have let Shaw turn Stanford Football into the...

Biggest Joke West of the Mississippi River in the American Republic that will only get a lot worse in 2022!

5. Steve Sarkisian, Texas - The Texas Boosters have cranked-up their NIL Machine to help Sark to start landing some talent in Austin but will Sark make it to coach the 2023 season at Texas whether the latest Manning Boy is coming to Texas or not?

Maybe...Maybe Not!

Sark was 5 - 7 in his only season on the job at Texas and No Texas Head Coach has survived 2 straight losing seasons in the modern era of college football and we really doubt that Sark could survive it either so on to the Texas 2022 schedule >

La. Monroe
Alabama
UTSA
At Texas Tech
West Virginia
Oklahoma
Iowa State
At Oklahoma State
At Kansas State
TCU
At Kansas
Baylor

Geez...7 wins...maybe for Texas in 2022!

We could easily see Texas winning only 5 games again in 2022 and how in the Hell could Sark be retained at Texas if he posts losing seasons in his only two seasons on the job?

Not a Chance in Hell Sark could or would coach Texas in 2023 if that happens!

6. Dino Babers, Syracuse - Dino Babers has 1 Winning Season in his 6 seasons coaching Syracuse and we really doubt that Dino be able to have another losing season coaching the Orange and keep his job so on to the Syracuse 2022 schedule...

Louisville
At UConn
Purdue
Virginia
Wagner
NC State
At Clemson
Notre Dame
At Pitt
Florida State
At Wake Forest
At Boston College

Damn...that's a HARD football schedule and if Syracuse is not 4 - 1 when NC State shows up to the Carrier Dome on October 15 there's not a Chance In Hell the Orange get to 6 wins in 2022!

Get Yourself Together Dino!

7. Butch Jones, Arkansas State - We don't have any idea why the Arkansas State folks hired Butch Jones a year ago but they did and Butch in Year 1 put up a record of...

2 - 10

Another losing season and Butch is done at Arkansas State so let's go to the Red Wolves 2022 schedule >

At Southern Miss
At Louisiana

Come on Butch...Bozo the Clown win 6 games with this schedule coaching Arkansas State even if he started 1 - 3!

8. Jedd Fisch, Arizona - We are still not sure why Jedd Fisch was hired at Arizona but somehow he was and in Year 1 on the job Jedd put up a record of...wait for it...

Mississippi State
North Dakota State
At California
Colorado
Oregon
At Washington

2 Seasons...that's how long the Jedd Fisch Experiment will last in Tucson!

9. Tim Albin, Ohio - Taking over a solid Ohio Football program from Frank Solich Ole Tim Albin promptly in Year 1 coaching the Bobcats put up a record of...wait for it...

3 - 9

Florida Atlantic
At Penn State
At Iowa State
Fordham
At Kent State
Akron
At Western Michigan
Northern Illinois
Buffalo
At Miami (OH)
At Ball State

....just no way Albin is coaching Ohio in 2023!

10. Karl Dorrell, Colorado - In 2 seasons at Colorado Karl Dorrell has posted records of...

Overall: 8 - 10
