It's that time of year again, Rivalry Week! Also, it marks the "races" on who stays and who gets fired.

Looks like California didn't waste any time getting rid of Jeff Tedford after its rival game, finishing with a 3-9 record.

Who else could be gone or is in the hottest seat?

Hence my comment that Southern Cal has said otherwise to his being on the hot seat. I still think given what that program "means" in terms of its fanbase, boosters, and name in college football, that the Kiffin era won't last long. The man is a joke and it's a wonder he ever left Knoxville, TN alive. Maybe one day he'll be able to pump Alshon Jeffrey's gas!

Safe to say John Smith (Arkansas), Gene Chizik (Auburn), and Joker Phillips (Kentucky) will all be looking for new careers.

I think it was a mistake for Tennessee to fire Dooley. I know a 4-7 record sucks (with no wins in the SEC) but the problem isn't the entire team, it's the defense. They score 36 average points per game, so they have one of the best offenses in the SEC. The problem is that they allow 37 PPG. If their defense steps up and allows 10 less points each game, they would've beat #5 Georgia, #13 South Carolina, and Missouri, giving them a 7-4 record, and guaranteeing a bowl bid. I say fire the hell out of the Defensive coordinator and give Dooley another year to rebuild the program.

I have never understood the attraction of this Lane Kiffin guy. I don't know why Tennessee or USC hired him. His biggest accomplishment is being Monte Kiffin's son and plus he is an A-grade douchebag to boot. His firing would make my day.

He's definitely not his daddy...... I honestly would not be surprised if his name is mentioned for the Georgia State job (Bill Curry is retiring after being with the program since 2008 and this was their third season of football.).

Gene Chizik is probably going as well, as Auburn is 3-8 and goes into the Iron Bowl 0-7 in the SEC and look to finish the season 0-8 in the SEC. Even if they beat Alabama , a 4-8 (1-7 SEC) record is not a job saver, especially for a program that won a National Championship two seasons ago.

Smith's contract was only for the 2012 season - so he was gone unless he won the BCS Championship.

Having Wilson injured certainly didn't help his long term prospects.

Still, I think the intention may have been for Smith to have been in the running for the job full time - when he was introduced, he was introduced as "head coach" rather than interim head coach. Beyond that, the idea of having a one-season only appointment is just unthinkable when you take into account the recruiting process. Plus if you're Smith, why give up the Weber State job, even if it's an FCS job, for a 10-month appointment? I think even a middling season from Smith (ie bowl eligibility or one game under eligibility) probably would see him return.

Absolutely. Look at my Alshon Jeffrey reference. It stems from a comment he made after Jeffrey decommitted from Southern Cal. When it looked increasingly like he was going to choose South Carolina over Tennessee, Kiffin called Jeffrey to make a late pitch. His pitch? If Jeffrey became a Gamecock he'd wind up pumping gas for the rest of his life "like all the other players from South Carolina." Never mind that quite a few Gamecocks are in the NFL. Needless to say Jeffrey chose South Carolina and went in the 2nd round of the 2012 draft to Da Bears.

It might have been a possibility.

The reason for Smith to take a one year job was money. A lot of money. Also Sears is listed as an Interim Head Coach on the Weber web site. Smith might have the job locked up after his year at Arkansas. I would not be surprised to see him go back there.

Also, Arkansas wanted someone else, a 'big name', which wasn't available. They've been quietly feeling out several people this year.

I would not be greatly shocked if a contrite and reformed Petrino returns after the first of the year. Despite the scandel, he is still very popular with big time boosters and the public in Arkansas.

Idaho fired Rob Akey a couple weeks ago and is using the offensive coordinator to finish the season. Probably the least attractive job in all of FBS but it is still there for anyone that feels like an extreme challenge. I'd imagine they are pushing hard to lure Dennis Erickson out of his retirement to take over, but trading in a live of leasure in Coeur d'Alene for the trainwreck that is the Vandals of Moscow is a tough sell.

Yeah, I know all this but it still hurts. Especially when you call a QB sneak on 1st and 10 when you thought it was 3rd and 1. My only hope is that Bill McCartney went 1-10 his 3rd season and Embree got his out of the way earlier. They might have a shot beating Utah after playing 4 ranked teams in a row.

I don't have any specific names on the possible new coach, but Arkansas is prepared to offer a lot of money to the right coach to get him to come to Fayetteville.

IMHO, being a native of Arkansas and having attend the University in Fayetteville back a long time ago, Arkansas main problem is that the state has a relatively small population and doesn't have the type of high school football programs that 'grow' championship college teams.

They have a good reputation in the state, and surrounding states - but the top prospects go elsewhere.

Being so close to SEC and Big 12 powerhouses definitely hurts recruiting for Arkansas. With Mizzou now in the SEC, that's another state SEC teams will start recruiting in a lot more and try to poach recruits that may have gone to Mizzou or Arkansas (Heck, Florida, Auburn, Bama, Carolina and Tennessee have been doing it in Georgia for years.....). The stink of Petrino is still pretty strong in Fayetteville......

Another coach that may be on the hot seat is Bobby Hauck at UNLV. Even if they win tonight (late game against a poor Hawaii team) they finish at 3-10 in his third season in charge. With UNLV looking to move forward on their 50,000 seat retractable roof proposed stadium, they might want to go get a splashy name to show they are going to be committed to football and encourage donations to help the project. Or they might just think that a double digit loss total is unaccepable after three years.

It's the play calling. Let's take a look at Lane's asshole moments since he became a HC:

-Accused Urban Meyer of recruiting violations in calling Nu'Keese Richardson while Richardson was on a visit to Tennessee. In doing so he violated an SEC rule against mentioning recruits by name and, oh yeah, what Meyer was doing wasn't a recruiting violation at all. Got publicly reprimanded by Mike Slive for the comment and had to make a public apology. Never mind the recruiting violations Tennessee incurred during the time for its mock press conference http://rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/footbal...adds-one-more-rea?urn=ncaaf,140108

-The aforementioned Alshon Jeffrey "pumping gas" comment

-Departure from Tennessee *during* the recruiting season

-Rumblings around the Internet that Tennessee recruits felt like the recruiting process was a joke with coaches tearing off shirts WWE style to impress upon recruits how INTENSE and CRUNK they were at Tennessee http://www.faniq.com/blog/Video-Lane...s-Recruits-At-Tennessee-Blog-20005

-"Numbersgate" at SoCal

-This awesome press conference - http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=cX844T-EYUw - which initially led to the reporter being banned from practices and a game.

I'd personally like to buy Lane Kiffin for what he's worth and sell him for what he thinks he's worth.

Fair enough. I honestly don't pay a whole lot of attention to off-the-field news. Just don't have the patience for it.

Either way, the bland play-calling drives me insane. Especially following the Pete Carroll era.

Funny thing is, our defense (which has been god-awful) actually did pretty darn well against Notre Dame. I'm quite happy with holding them to 1 touchdown and 1 field goal in the first quarter, and then 4 field goals for the remainder of the game. But I really don't know what they were trying to do with our offense. I mean, I know Wittek has a good arm, but jesus, enough with the long throws! Of course, not having Barkley didn't exactly help...

I agree. When the Pac-12 announced that Colorado would be joining, I was very skeptical of the pick. I did not think Colorado would do well. Even though its only been two years, I was right. The pick was not very well thought thoroughly and they (Pac-12) could have went with someone else.

The only good thing Colorado has brought to the conference was the Men's Basketball Champions, last year.

It puzzles my as to why Colorado does not have a baseball team......

CU's problem is that the school does not allow junior college transfers. All of their players are signed as HS seniors and must attend CU as freshmen. CU wants to keep their academic/admission standards higher than everyone else (it's their own pereception) and lock out athletes as a result. Until CU changes their admissions policy and allows JC transfers or kids that may test lower on their ACT/SAT scores CU will be the laughingstock of the PAC12. I work in Boulder and have never attended a CU football game and probably never will unless they decide that they need a better product on the field.

What would really help is if they fired Mike Bohn, their Athletic Director, and hired someone who knew how to manage a major college athletic program.

It was certainly well thought out, looking at the long term and not just the short term in one sport.

They'd have been right there with Kansas as Big 12 punching bag this year. The move was never about raising the level of competition for football, as CU was already playing a tough conference schedule. It was about money, conference stability (the PAC was trying to rip the guts out of the Big 12 at the time), and academic association with the top schools on the west coast.

While I agree CU has issues with their policies (when it comes to building a good football team), many other teams hold similar or even more stringent standards for their players (as mentioned, Stanford), while still not being the laughing stock of college football. Mike Bohn couldnt put the best coach in football in charge and expect anything different. The program really does suck.

There's no way they let Weis go. They are already paying off one coach, and to be honest, Weis has seen SOME improvement in his players compared to what they did last year. Heaps will be a better quarterback than Crist for next year, and Sims is going to be one of the top rushers in the Big XII. Defensively is where they'll need a good offseason.

If he struggles next year, he may be done. I think you at least have to give him some time, though.

For me, the final straw was the preseason coaches poll; USC got one Number 1 vote and Kiffin loudly denied that he'd done it. But he forgot that these votes aren't anonymous, and the next day he looked really foolish when it was revealed that he was the one who gave the Trojans their lone Number 1 vote.

No, they're FBS. If they aren't, the Noles may have the easiest road to a BCS Bowl win ever and the Orange Bowl will have the lowest ratings ever! They're this year's MAC champions and are headed to the Orange Bowl against the 'Noles. They were in the MAC from 1973 to 1985, left to be an independent (1986-1992), then joined the Big West from '93 to '95 then another year as an independent before rejoining the MAC in 1997.

Unlike my support for UGA, I can actually claim attending Georgia State and was happy to see them add football several years back. The jump after three seasons to the FBS is going to be a pretty rough one seeing as they went 1-10 this past season and played a mix of FCS and FBS teams unlike their first two seasons which were a mix of NAIA, NCAA Div. II, FCS and FBS teams. Next season they have games against West Virgina and Alabama as part of their non-conference schedule along with UT-Chattanooga and Jacksonville State.

Oh, you certainly have NOT stepped on any toes here, thats for sure. It is a good idea, but if the NIU coach was fired then went elsewhere after that, I would have put him down on the termination list. But he was not fired, which is a good thing. Lets put it this way, he advanced his career on his own and avoided the naughty list. LOL.

If I remember correctly they only just recently started a team, the first year would just be a play everyone team and try and get everyone experience, then they had to compete in the conference they were in and finally their move into C-USA will make them (by default I think they have to with the move) an FBS team.

They had joined the Colonial Athletic Association back in 2005, but the football program (which didn't start playing until 2010) didn't start CAA play until this most recent season and played as an independent their first two seasons as they wanted to get a few seasons under their belt before beginning conference play.

Wisconsin HC Brett Bielema as taken Arkansas' job

I have mixed feelings over this. In a way I liked having Bielema around as kind of a younger coach, but in recent years his gaffs have started to become more apparent. I wonder if Barry Alvarez will allow him to coach at the Rose Bowl. I'm sure some would say to do otherwise would seem classless, but I doubt Alvarez cares what I or any of us folks want. But this move to Arkansas, it doesn't quite seem to have the right fit to me for some reason. To me, on face-value this just looks like a cash move and it sort of bugs me.



Will you watch the Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions on Sunday? Only if coach Eric Mangini resigned after a loss.

It's not classless. Most coaches who announced changes are not allowed to then coach their team in a Bowl game. He should clean out his office tomorrow and be gone. Cold, but that's the way it works. Maybe Alvarez himself will come out of retirement and take over for one game - at least he knows how to win it.

More importantly, they cannot wait around for a month when they should be out recruiting and doing their best to hit the ground running at the new job.

And why would he want to stick around and get his ass beating from Stanford? Seeing that might make Arkansas change their mind.

I believe there is a dead period in recruiting during during the College Bowl Season according to this Seattle Times article by Bob Condotta:

http://seattletimes.com/html/huskyfootballblog/

"One thing the earlier bowl game will do for UW is give the Huskies a longer break once it is over. With the game on Dec. 22, and recruiting then in a dead period through Jan. 3 (the dead period begins Dec. 17)"

This is in the "Tuesday links --- UW didn't get an easy draw against Boise State" part of the Husky Blog.

There are reports that Cal is going to hire Sonny Dykes away from Louisiana Tech. Also reports that Colorado is close to a deal with Butch Jones. Neither is official yet, but if they happen that means Cincinnatti and Louisiana Tech will be looking for new coaches, and San Jose State will have dodged a huge bullet in keeping Mike MacIntyre from heading up the bay to Cal.

Bielema may be the only person who thought his "they might finally win one" statement was more joke than realistic assessment.

With a name like that, his neighbors may think he's engaged in an entirely different California business!

Like I said earlier in reply 72, it is a good idea, but these guys were not "fired" per se.... The reason why I added the Retires part is to show that these guys are leaving the game as a whole.

That is too bad. Rumors around Boulder County here are saying that they want Jeff Tedford. Eh, what?? LOL.

It's the highest quality post in this thread - no offense to anyone.

In this thread of coaching terminations, Bielema (self) terminated to go to Arkansas, leaving Barry Alvarez (pictured) to reinstate himself as head coach and attempt to win a record 4th Rose Bowl. It's the most compelling story of bowl season outside of ND/Bama. I thought it would speak for itself with the discussion of Bielema directly above it.

Tedford wouldn't be too bad IMHO but I heard that Jeff isn't interested in CU.

BTW, Tennessee hired Cincy's Butch Jones. Apparently, Rocky Top is better than Rocky Mtn.

Well, Colorado has hired San Jose State's Mike McIntyre to lead the Buffs

Now why would he do that? Seems classless, I don't know. Maybe he is trying to avoid a recruiting violation now that he is the new Cincinnati coach. I'm sure that would leave a very sour taste in the mouthes of the parents, and the recruits. He should have said something then left gracefully. But who knows....

What Tuberville did at Texas Tech was really no different than what Lane Kiffin did at Tennessee a few years back. Ran a program into the ground and than not so much as a goodbye once they saw greener pastures at other schools (Kiffin to USC and Tuberville to Cincy)...
