    nice to be off this one, i s'pose. mixed relief and some other emotion that feels like damaged confidence...thanks Dan.

    Erickson seems awfully low....to me. maybe it's the new unis (barf).

    Texas doesn't have the balls to fire Mack in a year no matter what happens or how they scapegoat a bunch of halfway assistant coaches for last year's hilarity. they hadn't won a NC since they had an all-white team in the all-white SWC 40 years ago. horn fans will cling to that and VY like it's a teddy bear on a rainy night with loud thunder. they bitch and moan on their boards about how UT deserves better or whatever....but do they? they only won the Big XII 3 times in 16 years.

    with two new coordinators (Mack has only ever been as good as 1. his DC and 2. the freak athlete Greg Davis got to "call plays" for out of the spread option: trans, QB makes plays), no running game unless Malcom Brown can overcome a decade of meh for toting the horn pill, and the Garrett Gilbert enigma, i sort wish we could get them in Folsom one last time.

    but, on to greener pastures.

    I know it breaks DBT's heart, but it's nice to not be on that chart anymore.

    Houston Nutt, i loved that guy as our coach.

    funny also, Greg Schiano....guy could have had any job in the country (minus all about 10) 3 years ago but the Rutgers Suck has reclaimed him, according to this list.

    Erickson is way too low. ASU is likely to be the favorite to represent the South in the Pac-12 championship game. He has to win this year.

    Some of the groupings are really odd though. Bill Snyder as part of the "Edge of the Hot Seat" category. Are you kidding me? KSU brought back the greatest coach in school history for a second stint and his job might be in jeopardy at some point? Not buying it. I also think Mack Brown would have string together a few consecutive losing seasons before his job is in jeopardy.

    BTW, I would love to meet Houston Nutt's agent. He got him $2.7 million a year? Wow.

    Nutt is represented by Jimmy Sexton (Athletic Resource Management )

    In addition to Nutt, Sexton also represents two other coaches who make serious cash....Saban and Kiffen

    Surprising that they listed Chizik as the second safest in the country. I know he just came off a national championship but if the NCAA decides to go after Auburn for Cam Newton and a lot of the other normal SEC stuff things could change quickly. They lost a lot of talent off last years team, lose a few more players to ineligibility and it wouldn't be hard to see them lose some SEC games. Add some sanctions and the pressure could start pretty quickly. Add the fact that Auburn has some money behind it to pay him to leave if they wanted to.

    Auburn is potentially not that far away from the same situation that Ohio State is in right now, a winning coach but a lot of trouble stirring around the program.

    One other name that jumps out on the list at #24 is Lane Kiffin. I am not sure he should be that high right now, but I also think the odds that he the HC for USC after their scholarship reductions end are pretty low. I think USC is banking on him bringing in the elite talent with the help of Orgeron to stock the cupboard for the next guy, knowing that the job will be much more attractive to outsiders after the sanctions end.

    Mike Sherman tied with Paterno? their recruiting seems to be pretty good every year, but that's nothing new. they did have to replace their "all conference" QB mid-season....which is a nice move albeit one driven by desperation. can't really expect that's going to work every time.

    last season probably bought Sherman 2 more years thanks to UT sucking, but beating a good Texas didn't even save Fran. when was the last time ATM didn't lose or blown out in a bowl? that one good team that Fran had got prison sexed by Cal, as i recall.

    and Brian Kelly is one year away (@104?).....ND fans are getting desperate, the ones i know. they are at critical mass for a program.....(as are we to a lesser degree)...last time they were serious contenders was before most of today's recruits were born. so desperate that they are talking about getting Skip Holtz already. and the back to past thing is a sign of mental regression imo. except in our case, where it's an embrace of tradition and getting a guy "who bleeds black and gold" and "understands what it takes to make CU football great".

    i'm hopeful for us, but i find the new old days thing a bit suspicious. we'll ride the new conference thing next year and i like what i hear from Embree, but we're all suckers for the old days talk. not a rational thing.

    Two major problems with the list....

    Pelini in the 90s? Really?

    And how is Wulff #1? I mean really? It's not like WSU is used to a winning program. If they can end up in the Top 6 in the new Pac I think Wulff will get a well-deserved extension.:lol:

    Jim Grobe on the list too, he was quite highly thought of awhile ago. I suppose that's a lesson to coaches, get out of the subpar situations while you can.

    Is the "Kobe" in your name a reference to a high priced beef favored by the Japanese, or are you just attracted to elite morons?

    I don't think Erickson should be higher on the list. The reality is that they finished last season off VERY strong, beating Arizona. They seemed to have found their stride and their QB. They would have beat Oregon if their other QB wouldn't have thrown only 3 picks! They played Stanford really tough. I'm from Phoenix, and I have a pretty good pulse on this thing. If they have a poor year, he's gone. But I think most people expect they will be improved (perhaps not winning the South, but competing for it). If that happens, he's in good shape.

    Man, that surprises me. I figured it would be a "win the South or else" type thing. He is one game over .500 in four seasons with no bowl wins and four victories over 1-AA teams.
