Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Saturday, March 17, 2018 - Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Irish Blessing

My wish for you

“I wish you not a path devoid of clouds, nor a life on a bed of roses,

Not that you might never need regret,

nor that you should never feel pain.

No, that is not my wish for you.

My wish for you is:

That you might be brave in times of trial,

when others lay crosses upon your shoulders.

When mountains must be climbed and chasms are to be crossed,

When hope can scarce shine through.

That every gift God gave you might grow with you

and let you give your gift of joy to all who care for you.

That you may always have a friend who is worth that name,

whom you can trust and who helps you in times of sadness,

Who will defy the storms of daily life at your side.

One more wish I have for you:

That in every hour of joy and pain you may feel God close to you.

This is my wish for you and for all who care for you.

This is my hope for you now and forever.”

How the snakes, in a manner most antic,
He marched to the county Mayo,
And trundled them into th’ Atlantic

The shamrock is forbid by law to grow on Irish ground!
No more St. Patrick’s Day we’ll keep, his colour can’t be seen,
For there’s a cruel law agin’ the Wearin’ o’ the green.
~Author Unknown

When law can stop the blades of grass from growin’ as they grow,
An’ when the leaves in summer time their color dare not show,
Then I will change the color, too, I wear in my caubeen;
But till that day, plaise God, I’ll stick to the Wearin’ o’ the Green.

Never iron a four-leaf clover, because you don’t want to press your luck. ~Author Unknown

Oh, the music in the air!
An’ the joy that’s ivrywhere –
Shure, the whole blue vault of heaven is wan grand triumphal arch,
An’ the earth below is gay
Wid its tender green th’-day,
Fur the whole world is Irish on the Seventeenth o’ March!
~Thomas Augustin Daly

When Irish eyes are smiling, sure ’tis like a morn in spring.
In the lilt of Irish laughter you can hear the angels sing,
When Irish hearts are happy all the world seems bright and gay,
And when Irish eyes are smiling, sure, they steal your heart away.
~Chauncey Olcott and George Graff, Jr. (lyrics), Ernest R. Ball (music)

He was a terror to any snake that came in his path, whether it was the cold, slimy reptile sliding along the ground or the more dangerous snake that oppresses men through false teachings. And he drove the snakes out of the minds of men, snakes of superstition and brutality and cruelty. ~Arthur Brisbane

Oh, while a man may dream awake,
On gentle Irish ground,
‘Tis Paradise without the snake –
That’s easy to be found.
~Frederick Langbridge

For ’tis green, green, green, where the ruined towers are gray,
And it’s green, green, green, all the happy night and day;
Green of leaf and green of sod, green of ivy on the wall,
And the blessed Irish shamrock with the fairest green of all.

And he called it the dear little shamrock of Ireland…

Liveried angels robed in green,
Wearing, by St Patrick’s bounty,
Emeralds big as half the county.
~Walter Savage Landor

Do you suppose it’s true, that St. Patrick was a parselmouth, and his muggle friends never knew? ~Dave Beard

The shamrock on an older shore
Sprang from a rich and sacred soil
Where saint and hero lived of yore,
And where their sons in sorrow toil.
~Maurice Francis Egen

A best friend is like a four leaf clover: hard to find and lucky to have. ~Author Unknown

What color should be seen
Where our fathers’ homes have been
But their own immortal Green?
~Author Unknown

May luck be our companion
May friends stand by our side
May history remind us all
Of Ireland’s faith and pride.
May God bless us with happiness
May love and faith abide.
~Irish Blessing

May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light,
May good luck pursue you each morning and night.
~Irish Blessing

Oh! St. Patrick was a gentleman
Who came of decent people;
He built a church in Dublin town,
And on it put a steeple.
~Henry Bennett

Wandered from the Antrim hills,
Wandered from the Killalas rills,
Patrick heard upon the breeze
Voices from the Irish seas.
~Author Unknown

If you hold a four-leaf shamrock in your left hand at dawn on St. Patrick’s Day you get what you want very much but haven’t wished for. ~Patricia Lynch

With the frost he kindled fire;
Drove the snakes from brake and brier,
Hurling out the writhing brood
With the lightning of his rood.
~Edwin Markham

There’s ne’er a mile in Ireland’s Isle where the dirty vermin musters;
Where’er he put his dear forefoot he murdered them in clusters.
The toads went hop, the frogs went flop, slapdash into the water,
And the beasts committed suicide to save themselves from slaughter.
~Old Irish Song

When after the Winter alarmin’,
The Spring steps in so charmin’,
So fresh and arch
In the middle of March,
Wid her hand St. Patrick’s arm on…
~Alfred Percival Graves

The list of Irish saints is past counting; but in it all no other figure is so human, friendly, and lovable as St. Patrick – who was an Irishman only by adoption. ~Stephen Gwynn

Leprechauns, castles, good luck and laughter
Lullabies, dreams, and love ever after.
Poems and songs with pipes and drums
A thousand welcomes when anyone comes.
~Author Unknown

An Irishman is never drunk as long as he can hold onto one blade of grass to keep from falling off the earth. ~Irish Saying

Many an opportunity is lost because a man is out looking for four-leaf clovers. ~Author Unknown

“What counts is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight – it’s the size of the fight in the dog.”

Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle hardened. He will fight savagely.

But this is the year 1944! Much has happened since the Nazi triumphs of 1940-41. The United Nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats, in open battle, man-to-man. Our air offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our Home Fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and munitions of war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting men. The tide has turned! The free men of the world are marching together to Victory!

I have full confidence in your courage and devotion to duty and skill in battle.

We will accept nothing less than full Victory! Good luck! And let us beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.”

Order of the Day (2 June 1944) Message to troops before the Normandy landings


“We must be ready to dare all for our country. For history does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid. We must acquire proficiency in defense and display stamina in purpose. We must be willing, individually and as a Nation, to accept whatever sacrifices may be required of us. A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both. These basic precepts are not lofty abstractions, far removed from matters of daily living. They are laws of spiritual strength that generate and define our material strength. Patriotism means equipped forces and a prepared citizenry. Moral stamina means more energy and more productivity, on the farm and in the factory. Love of liberty means the guarding of every resource that makes freedom possible–from the sanctity of our families and the wealth of our soil to the genius of our scientists.”

First Inaugural address (20 January 1953)


“As we peer into society’s future, we — you and I, and our government — must avoid the impulse to live only for today, plundering for our own ease and convenience the precious resources of tomorrow. We cannot mortgage the material assets of our grandchildren without risking the loss also of their political and spiritual heritage. We want democracy to survive for all generations to come, not to become the insolvent phantom of tomorrow.”


“In preparing for battle, I have always found that plans are useless but planning is indispensable.”


“Character in many ways is everything in leadership. It is made up of many things, but I would say character is really integrity. When you delegate something to a subordinate, for example, it is absolutely your responsibility, and he must understand this. You as a leader must take complete responsibility for what the subordinate does. I once said, as a sort of wisecrack, that leadership consists of nothing but taking responsibility for everything that goes wrong and giving your subordinates credit for everything that goes well.”


“I’m going to command the whole shebang.” Comment to his wife Mamie, after being informed by George Marshall that he would be in command of Operation Overlord


“We look upon this shaken Earth, and we declare our firm and fixed purpose — the building of a peace with justice in a world where moral law prevails. The building of such a peace is a bold and solemn purpose. To proclaim it is easy. To serve it will be hard. And to attain it, we must be aware of its full meaning — and ready to pay its full price. We know clearly what we seek, and why. We seek peace, knowing that peace is the climate of freedom. And now, as in no other age, we seek it because we have been warned, by the power of modern weapons, that peace may be the only climate possible for human life itself. Yet this peace we seek cannot be born of fear alone: it must be rooted in the lives of nations. There must be justice, sensed and shared by all peoples, for, without justice the world can know only a tense and unstable truce. There must be law, steadily invoked and respected by all nations, for without law, the world promises only such meager justice as the pity of the strong upon the weak. But the law of which we speak, comprehending the values of freedom, affirms the equality of all nations, great and small. Splendid as can be the blessings of such a peace, high will be its cost: in toil patiently sustained, in help honorably given, in sacrifice calmly borne.” Second Inaugural address (21 January 1957)


“I do have one instruction for you, General. Do something about that damned football team.” Said to William Westmoreland in 1960 when Westmoreland assumed the post of Superintendent of West Point.


“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. It is two electric power plants, each serving a town of 60,000 population. It is two fine, fully equipped hospitals. It is some fifty miles of concrete pavement. We pay for a single fighter plane with a half million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people. This is, I repeat, the best way of life to be found on the road the world has been taking. This is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron. … Is there no other way the world may live?”


Farewell Address, January 17, 1961

“We now stand ten years past the midpoint of a century that has witnessed four major wars among great nations. Three of these involved our own country. Despite these holocausts, America is today the strongest, the most influential, and most productive nation in the world. Understandably proud of this pre-eminence, we yet realize that America’s leadership and prestige depend, not merely upon our unmatched material progress, riches and military strength, but on how we use our power in the interests of world peace and human betterment.

Throughout America’s adventure in free government, our basic purposes have been to keep the peace, to foster progress in human achievement, and to enhance liberty, dignity and integrity among peoples and among nations. To strive for less would be unworthy of a free and religious people. Any failure traceable to arrogance or our lack of comprehension or readiness to sacrifice would inflict upon us grievous hurt, both at home and abroad.

Crises there will continue to be. In meeting them, whether foreign or domestic, great or small, there is a recurring temptation to feel that some spectacular and costly action could become the miraculous solution to all current difficulties. A huge increase in newer elements of our defenses; development of unrealistic programs to cure every ill in agriculture; a dramatic expansion in basic and applied research — these and many other possibilities, each possibly promising in itself, may be suggested as the only way to the road we wish to travel. But each proposal must be weighed in the light of a broader consideration: the need to maintain balance in and among national programs, balance between the private and the public economy, balance between the cost and hoped for advantages, balance between the clearly necessary and the comfortably desirable, balance between our essential requirements as a nation and the duties imposed by the nation upon the individual, balance between actions of the moment and the national welfare of the future. Good judgment seeks balance and progress. Lack of it eventually finds imbalance and frustration.

Now this conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence — economic, political, even spiritual — is felt in every city, every Statehouse, every office of the Federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources, and livelihood are all involved. So is the very structure of our society.

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.

Akin to, and largely responsible for the sweeping changes in our industrial-military posture, has been the technological revolution during recent decades. In this revolution, research has become central, it also becomes more formalized, complex, and costly. A steadily increasing share is conducted for, by, or at the direction of, the Federal government.

Today, the solitary inventor, tinkering in his shop, has been overshadowed by task forces of scientists in laboratories and testing fields. In the same fashion, the free university, historically the fountainhead of free ideas and scientific discovery, has experienced a revolution in the conduct of research. Partly because of the huge costs involved, a government contract becomes virtually a substitute for intellectual curiosity. For every old blackboard there are now hundreds of new electronic computers. The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present — and is gravely to be regarded.

Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.

As we peer into society’s future, we — you and I, and our government — must avoid the impulse to live only for today, plundering for our own ease and convenience the precious resources of tomorrow. We cannot mortgage the material assets of our grandchildren without risking the loss also of their political and spiritual heritage. We want democracy to survive for all generations to come, not to become the insolvent phantom of tomorrow.”

During the long lane of the history yet to be written, America knows that this world of ours, ever growing smaller, must avoid becoming a community of dreadful fear and hate, and be, instead, a proud confederation of mutual trust and respect. Such a confederation must be one of equals. The weakest must come to the conference table with the same confidence as do we, protected as we are by our moral, economic, and military strength. That table, though scarred by many past frustrations, cannot be abandoned for the certain agony of the battlefield.

Disarmament, with mutual honor and confidence, is a continuing imperative. Together we must learn how to compose differences, not with arms, but with intellect and decent purpose.”


“One circumstance that helped our character development: we were needed. I often think today of what an impact could be made if children believed they were contributing to a family’s essential survival and happiness. In the transformation from a rural to an urban society, children are — though they might not agree — robbed of the opportunity to do genuinely responsible work.”

We can’t all strike very big blows, and even the little ones count for something.”


“The more we progress the more we tend to progress. We advance not in arithmetical but in geometrical progression. We draw compound interest on the whole capital of knowledge and virtue which has been accumulated since the dawning of time.

But within our father’s lives what changes have there not been? The railway and the telegraph, chloroform and applied electricity. Ten years now go further than a thousand then, not so much on account of our finer intellects as because the light we have shows us the way to more. Primeval man stumbled along with peering eyes, and slow, uncertain footsteps. Now we walk briskly towards our unknown goal.”


“What can we know? What are we all? Poor silly half-brained things peering out at the infinite, with the aspirations of angels and the instincts of beasts.”

This is what creates trust, what enables you to get the task done.”

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Monday, March 12, 2018 - Jack London


“I do not live for what the world thinks of me, but for what I think of myself.”


“There is an ecstasy that marks the summit of life, and beyond which life cannot rise. And such is the paradox of living, this ecstasy comes when one is most alive, and it comes as a complete forgetfulness that one is alive.”


“The trouble with him was that he was without imagination. He was quick and alert in the things of life, but only in the things, and not in the significances.”


“I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.”

Avoid the unhappy ending, the harsh, the brutal, the tragic, the horrible – if you care to see in print things you write. (In this connection don’t do as I do, but do as I say.) Humour is the hardest to write, easiest to sell, and best rewarded… Don’t write too much. Concentrate your sweat on one story, rather than dissipate it over a dozen. Don’t loaf and invite inspiration; light out after it with a club, and if you don’t get it you will nonetheless get something that looks remarkably like it.”


“A bone to the dog is not charity. Charity is the bone shared with the dog, when you are just as hungry as the dog.”


“Affluence means influence.”


“Darn the wheel of the world! Why must it continually turn over? Where is the reverse gear?”

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Friday, March 9, 2018 - 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.”

“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.”


“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.”

“When we don’t match another team’s intensity—that doesn’t happen very often—then all of a sudden we do ‘J.J.-watching,’ where we’re watching J.J. play. We might as well get tickets and sit behind the bench. No one is doing anything out there.”

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Wednesday, March 7, 2018 - Ben Franklin


Remarks of Benjamin Franklin after the signing of the US Constitution on September 17, 1787 in the words of James Madison:

“Whilst the last members were signing it Doctor Franklin looking towards the Presidents Chair, at the back of which a rising sun happened to be painted, observed to a few members near him, that Painters had found it difficult to distinguish in their art a rising from a setting sun. I have, said he, often and often in the course of the Session, and the vicissitudes of my hopes and fears as to its issue, looked at that behind the President without being able to tell whether it was rising or setting: But now at length I have the happiness to know that it is a rising and not a setting Sun.”


“All mankind is divided into three classes: those that are immovable, those that are movable, and those that move.”


“Do not fear mistakes. You will know failure. Continue to reach out.”


“Do not squander time for that is the stuff life is made of.”


“Hide not your talents. They for use were made. What’s a sundial in the shade?”


“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.”


“The Constitution only gives people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself.”


“A great empire, like a great cake, is most easily diminished at the edges.”


“Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man.”


“Being ignorant is not so much a shame, as being unwilling to learn.”


“Energy and persistence conquer all things.”


“How few there are who have courage enough to own their faults, or resolution enough to mend them.”

“When you’re finished changing, you’re finished.”

“Love your Enemies, for they tell you your Faults.”


“I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I travelled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.”

4. RESOLUTION. Resolve to perform what you ought. Perform without fail what you resolve.
5. FRUGALITY. Make no Expense but to do good to others or yourself; i.e. Waste nothing.
6. INDUSTRY. Lose no Time. Be always employ’d in something useful. Cut off all unnecessary actions.
7. SINCERITY. Use no hurtful Deceit. Think innocently and justly; and, if you speak, speak accordingly.

10. CLEANLINESS. Tolerate no Uncleanliness in Body, Clothes, or Habitation.
11. TRANQUILLITY. Be not disturbed at Trifles, or at Accidents common or unavoidable.
12. CHASTITY. Rarely use Venery but for Health or Offspring; Never to Dulness, Weakness, or the Injury of your own or another’s Peace or Reputation.
13. HUMILITY. Imitate Jesus and Socrates.”

It cannot anticipate fires, so it has to shape a flexible organization that is capable of responding to unpredictable events.”


“You have no choice but to operate in a world shaped by globalization and the information revolution. There are two options: adapt or die.”


“I think it is very important for you to do two things: act on your temporary conviction as if it was a real conviction; and when you realize that you are wrong, correct course very quickly”

Post 2017 College Football Season Coaches Hot Seat Rankings – As We Enter 2018 Give These Hot Seat Coaches Hell Johnny Cash!

Post 2017 College Football Season Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

As We Enter 2018 Give These Hot Seat Coaches Hell Johnny Cash!

Post 2017 CFB Season Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

1. David Beaty, Kansas – After three seasons as the head coach of the Kansas football team David Beaty has records on the board of…

Overall: 3 – 33

Big 12: 1 – 26

…and if there is ANYONE on the Earth that can explain to us why Beaty is still the head coach of the Jayhawks…outside a few lunatics in Lawrence, Kansas that hired and No Damn Big Surprise had to fire Charlie Weis in the same position before Beaty was hired….we would love to hear from you so that we can refer you to the closest mental institution so your ass can get some help…and quick!

Yes…David Beaty has won 3 games in 3 seasons coaching at Kansas and those 3 wins were against…

2017 – SE Missouri State
2016 – Rhode Island
2016 – Texas….Oh Charlie Strong that was Pitiful Son!

Oh…maybe David Beaty was kept on for a FOURTH year at Kansas because of an Amazing Recruiting Class and yet as we check the latest…

24/7 Sports Composite Team Recruiting Rankings

….we find Kansas’ 2018 recruiting class at…


…behind schools such as….

#69 – Toledo
#68 – Houston
#66 – Tulane
#64 – FIU
#63 – Western Michigan
#61 – Boise State
#59 – Duke
#58 – Iowa State
#57 – Wake Forest
#50 – Cincinnati

Do we need to go on? Didn’t think so!

Hey…Kansas can have any Damn coach they want to lead their football program but in the Real World where only Damn Morons hire Damn Idiots like Charlie Weis THREE years is plenty of Damn time to know or not if a football program is moving in the right direct and thus it’s No Damn Surprise that someone that hired Charlie Weis would keep David Beaty on when Beaty hasn’t done One Damn Thing to have earned the right to coach the Jayhawks for a FOURTH season!

A sidenote in this spot we do note that we have been told by someone we trust that more than one Very Damn Qualified Head Coach has reached out to the folks at Kansas to say that “X coach” would love to coach the Jayhawks and maybe we should start writing the names of those coaches to show just what kind of Damn Idiots are running Kansas Athletics and the University of Kansas right now!

2. Lovie Smith, Illinois – Lovie Smith took over an Illini football team two years ago that had won…

11 Games

…the two previous seasons before Lovie’s arrival and in two years on the job Lovie has records on the board of:

Overall: 5 – 19

Big Ten: 2 – 16

For those slow on the uptake that’s a plus-50% decline in wins and thus we haven’t a Damn Clue why anyone at Illinois would think that firing longtime college head coach Bill Cubit to hire Lovie Smith who last coached in college over 20 years beyond some hack agent of Lovie’s convincing the AD at Illinois, Josh Whitman, that hiring Lovie would make sense when if anyone at Coaches Hot Seat had taken that call would have said:

“Please…tell me what qualifies Lovie Smith to be the head football coach at Illinois or any Power 5 Conference school?”

There is NO good answer to the above question especially when one considers that when hiring Lovie Smith you are not getting a coach that “fits” the college game like a Pete Carroll who is….

Actually Alive and Awake on the Sidelines During the Games

….while Lovie has around the intensity level of a Tom Landry who was a Helluva pro coach with the Cowboys but would have been a Damn Failure if he had ever tried to coach in the college game!

What does the future hold for Lovie Smith at Illinois?

Our opinion…Lovie Smith will be fired at Illinois..either after the 2018 season or the 2019 season…because we don’t think there’s a chance in Hell the Illini come close to win 6 games in either of the next two years and if you can’t win 6 games at Illinois then what exactly is the point of you being the head coach of the football team?

There is NO point is the answer to that question!

3. Kliff Kingsbury, Texas Tech – If anyone had told us FIVE years ago that Kliff Kingsbury could post records of…

Overall: 30 – 33

Big 12: 16 – 29

…at Texas Tech and still be the head coach after his FIFTH year on the job we would have never believed it but then we have never thought Texas Tech AD Kirby Hocutt…

Cared About or Gave A Damn About Winning

…and it’s also our opinion Hocutt willingness to tolerate the above records from Kingsbury points to our opinion being right and even worse the alumni, boosters and fans of Red Raider Football that also seem….

Do Not Care About or Give A Damn About Winning!

One thing we are Very Damn Thankful for here at Coaches Hot Seat:

Kirby Hocutt is alive today in America and was not around in the early 1940s when WINNING was very Damn important and LOSING was not tolerated because if LOSING had been tolerated there would be no country for us Americans to live in today!

Be Proud fans of Texas Tech Football…

You are Below Damn Average and have an Athletic Director that Celebrates and Rewards Below Damn Average!

Guns Up and Give that Hocutt Boy your hard-earned money and be Damn proud when you do it!

4. Luke Fickell, Cincinnati – We saw enough of Luke Fickell as the interim head coach of Ohio State in 2011 after Jim Tressel got run out of town to lying to his bosses to know that Fickell was Damn Good at taking a team that should have won 10 games EASY and ended with a record of…

6 – 7

…costing the Buckeyes a shot at a National Title in 2012 under Urban Meyer when the team went undefeated after Ohio State AD Gene Smith and what must be a Helluva lot of stupid people in Columbus sent the Buckeyes to a meaningless bowl game…to know that Luke Fickell was not head coaching material!

No…we would NEVER had hired Luke Fickell to be the head coach at Cincinnati or ANY FBS school but then we actually watch football games here at Coaches Hot Seat and don’t believe Horseshit just because it is coming from a coach or an agent or someone else about Fickell or anyone else and what did Cincinnati get for hiring Luke Fickell as their coach?

Fickell took a team that should have EASY won 6+ games in 2017 and he posted a record of…

4 – 8

Our opinion…Luke Fickell is a nice guy… a solid guy…but he is not Head Coaching material no more than Kansas head coach David Beaty is head coaching material and the folks at Cincinnati like the folks at Kansas can either realize and understand that now or realize and understand it in the future but eventually….they will realize and understand it to be a FACT!

Our guess…Cincinnati has another losing season in 2018 under Fickell and Fickell will be fired because unlike Kansas which can tolerate losing seasons until the Earth ends the folks in Cincinnati don’t have that luxury and with that in mind Fickell better Damn get off his ass or he will be back in the assistant coaching ranks a year from today!

5. Kalani Sitake, BYU – Like Luke Fickell BYU head coach Kalani Sitake is another nice guy…a solid guy…but watching the BYU Cougars play several times in 2017 we cannot help but wonder…

Just what in the Hell is Kalani Sitake doing because his BYU football team looks like it is barely coached at times!

A 4 – 9 record in 2017 after a 9 – 4 record in 2016 certainly means Sitake has the ability to win games coaching the Cougars but he going to have to perform this coming season or he might very well find himself out of a job and when we mean perform anything less than 7 wins and we have to think the Kalani Sitake experiment will come to an end in Provo in early December.

6. Jim Harbaugh, Michigan – There were a few Coaches Hot Seat members on hand when Jim Harbaugh was introduced as the Stanford head coach in December 2007 and we were able to spend enough time around Jim during his FOUR years on The Farm and overall we were impressed with Harbaugh and we were not surprised at all when he went on to be very successful at the San Francisco 49ers.

We were surprised in September 2013 when Jim Harbaugh didn’t immediately make inactive 49ers defensive end Aldon Smith after he received an early morning DUI letting Smith play in a game on Sunday just days after that DUI and in our opinion the 49ers letting Smith play in that game was the beginning of the downfall of Jim Harbaugh in San Francisco and to some extent also in our opinion Harbaugh’s coaching at the 49ers and at Michigan has not been at the level it was at Stanford and before the Smith DUI with the 49ers.

The above was our opinion before the 2017 season began and after watching Michigan in every game it played this past season what we are beginning to wonder is…

What exactly is wrong with Jim Harbaugh?

Does Jim have some kind of health issue?

If it’s not a health issue then…what exactly is wrong with Jim Harbaugh because the Jim Harbaugh we see on the Michigan sideline and the one we are hearing about from our contact in Ann Arbor is not the Jim Harbaugh we know nor does the Michigan football team now reflect the Harbaugh we knew at Stanford.

Beyond all of the above let’s take a hard look at just what Jim Harbaugh has accomplished at Michigan in THREE seasons:

Overall Record: 28 – 11
Big Ten: 18 – 8

Also in THREE seasons Jim Harbaugh + Michigan have played 22 FBS teams that finished the season with .500 or better records and Harbaugh’s record in those 22 games is…

10 – 12

Sorry….the above kind of record is not what the folks at Michigan are paying Jim Harbaugh Millions of Dollars a year and spending Many, Many Millions of Dollars for assistant coaches, support staff, facility upgrades and all manner of other things like flying the entire Damn team to Florida and Europe for spring practice!

So what’s wrong with Michigan Football assuming there isn’t something wrong with Jim Harbaugh health wise?

Well for starters the Michigan Offense is…

The Most Predictable Offense in College Football

…on ANY level of the college game and that is beyond Michigan also having…

Some of the Most Pitiful Quarterback Play

…we have EVER seen at a school like Michigan and it’s almost as if…

Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Offensive Coaches aren’t actually coaching the team in practice but are going out and getting drunk at a local Ann Arbor bar

….and maybe Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Offensive Coaches should go get drunk at a local Ann Arbor bar because what they did last season was a…

Total and Complete Joke!

We don’t know a whole lot of Michigan alumni but we do know one who could buy and sell Nick Saban in about 10 minutes and we asked him what would happen to Jim Harbaugh if he went 8 – 4 again in 2018 and his response was….

“Jim will be fired.”

When we told that same Michigan alum that Harbaugh was 10 – 12 against FBS teams with .500 or better records in the last 3 seasons he said…

“Maybe we should fire Jim right now!”

Memo to Jim Harbaugh: Get off your Damn Ass now Son or your head coaching career will be OVER…at least on the college level…a year from today!

7. Ed Orgeron, LSU – If you are going to fire Les Miles at LSU and in our opinion Miles was given way too much time to get things straightened out then you better Damn hire a coach who will do better than Les Miles and Coach O in his first full season as the head coach of the Tigers posted a record of…

9 – 4

…and in Les Miles’ 11 full seasons as the head coach of LSU he only lost 4 or more games…

3 Seasons

….and if Ed Oregon loses 4 games again in 2018 he is going to one of the Hottest Seats in College Football and the Tigers fans are going to be IRATE especially after the moving around of coaches in the offensive coordinator position which was the same side of the football that Les Miles had so much trouble with and which in the end got Les Miles fired…and will get Coach O fired as well!

For what it’s worth our longtime LSU alum friend who lives in New Orleans and was deadly accurate in predicting Les Miles demise in Baton Rouge told us recently….

“If Ed doesn’t get things rolling in ’18 and Mike Norvell has another big season at Memphis I fully expect for some big alumni and boosters to demand that LSU hire Norvell and end the madness in Baton Rouge.”

4 or more losses by LSU in 2018…Hell…maybe even 3 losses…and Mike Norvell might be the head coach at LSU a year from today!

8. Major Applewhite, Houston – We haven’t a clue if Major Applewhite believes that he had to hire Kendall Briles and Randy Clements to get the Houston football program rolling again BUT we do know that if Applewhite doesn’t come very close to winning if not outright winning 10 games in 2018 the Major Applewhite experiment at Houston will be over a year from today and we have heard from a UH alum that he wouldn’t be surprised if the school went after Lane Kiffin in a BIG way which wouldn’t surprise us either since the folks at Houston…expect their football team to win a Helluva lot football games now!

Would we have hired Kendall Briles at FAU or Houston?

Not A Chance In Hell…but that’s just us!

9. Larry Fedora, North Carolina – We haven’t a clue what caused North Carolina football t0 fall from a 11 – 3 record in 2015 and 8 – 5 record in 2016 to a 3 – 9 record in 2017 but beyond the 3 wins when we got to see the Tar Heels play last season…

The Team Looked Like It Was Hardly Coached At All

….and that makes perfect sense since when one realizes those 3 wins were over…

Old Dominion
Western Carolina

We don’t have a Damn Clue what happened to North Carolina football last year besides the Tar Heels giving up a Helluva lot of points finishing…

99th in Total Defense

…out of 129 FBS teams and either Fedora will get his Defense and Football Team straightened out and win 6+ games in 2018 or Fedora will have a Heluva lot of time on his hands come this time next year!

10. Dana Holgorsen, West Virginia – This isn’t Crazy Dana Holgorsen’s first trip to the Coaches Hot Seat Rodeo and after posting a 7 – 6 record in 2018 which has left Holgo’s records at West Virginia in 6 seasons in Big 12 at…

Overall: 43 – 34
Big 12: 27 – 27

…one has to think the folks in Great State of West Virginia are not going to tolerate the Mediocrity of averaging winning…

7.16 Games A Season

….so 2018 may indeed be Holgo’s Little Bighorn so keep an eye out on the horizon Holgo for campfires because you should see plenty of smoke Son!

Greg Schiano and Tennessee – Be Thankful Tennessee Fans…You Avoided A Pompous Arrogant Ass Jerk…and Even Worse In Our Opinion! – Post Week 12 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings – Give These Hot Seat Coaches Hell Johnny Cash!

Greg Schiano and Tennessee – Be Thankful Tennessee Fans…You Avoided A Pompous Arrogant Ass Jerk…and Even Worse In Our Opinion!

We don’t have a Damn Clue why Tennessee was ever pursuing Greg Schiano for their head coaching job since after five years of employing a…

Pompous Arrogant Ass Jerk

…as your head coach the last Damn person on the Earth you would want to hire it seems is another…

Pompous Arrogant Ass Jerk

…and we could care less what Schiano may have known or didn’t know about that Evil Bastard Jerry Sandusky during his time at Penn State but we do know this…

We would not hire Greg Schiano to Shovel Shit

….and we say that for a lot of reasons but primarily because we have talked to enough people about Schiano to know that….

We would not hire Greg Schiano to Shovel Shit!

Consider this story from 2012 when Greg Schiano was still the head coach of the Tampa Bay Bucs…

Greg Schiano is just way out of line, Dan Graziano, ESPN

….which is better summarized by Greg than us:

I’m all for new faces shaking things up. I like it when people question conventional NFL wisdom. I don’t think enough people do it, and as a result I think things have a tendency to get a little redundant with the league from time to time. So if a new hotshot coach wants to come in from the college ranks and shake things up with a new defense or some funky new plays or even a new attitude, I’m generally all for it.

That is not, however, what Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano is up to with this thing where he had his players jump over the line and after New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning while Manning was taking a knee at the end of Sunday’s game. The Giants were justifiably upset about the maneuver, and Schiano’s excuse was weak and stupid. Per

“I don’t know if that’s not something that’s not done in the National Football League, but what I do with our football team is we fight until they tell us ‘Game over,'” Schiano said. “There’s nothing dirty about it and there’s nothing illegal about it.

“We crowd the ball — it’s like a sneak defense and you try to knock it loose. Watch Rutgers, they would know if they watched us that’s what we did at the end of the game.”

Rutgers is, of course, where Schiano was coaching this time last year. And there are a few real problems with his rationale. First of all, you don’t see teams doing that stuff at the college level, and it’s for the same reason you don’t see it at the NFL level. It’s because it’s a real good way to get people hurt for no good reason. If you’re losing and out of timeouts and the other team has the ball with so little time left that they can kneel down and run out the clock, you’ve lost. It doesn’t prove anything to your players or anyone else if you’re the fake tough guy who refuses to accept that. All it does is put people at silly risk of injury at the end of 60 minutes’ worth of brutal, health-threatening collisions. You owe it to your own players to know when you’re beaten and back off. Asking them to make a useless leaping hit in that situation is putting them at risk the same way it’s putting the other team at risk. It’s irresponsible.”

Amen Greg Graziano and we repeat that Greg Schiano is a…

Pompous Arrogant Ass Jerk


We would not hire Greg Schiano to Shovel Shit

…and who also in our opinion is…

A Sorry Damn Excuse for a Human Being

Be Thankful fans of Tennessee Football that you got in the way and this Sorry Damn Bastard didn’t become part of YOUR football program which YOU OWN since after….

YOU folks pay ALL the Damn Bills

…in Knoxville and you have every Damn right to stand-up and DEMAND that these Damn Morons at the University of Tennessee end this Damn Stupidity before they totally destroy Tennessee Football!

Post Week 12 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

Give these Hot Seat Coaches Hell Johnny Cash!

Thanks Mr. Cash!

1. David Beaty, Kansas – You really can’t make up what is going on with Kansas Football right now where the AD at KU Sheahon Zenger hired Charlie Weis in 2012 who then promptly posted records of…

Overall: 6 – 22

Big 12: 1 – 18

….who was then replaced by current head coach David Beaty who in three seasons has posted records of…

Overall: 3 – 33

Big 12: 1 – 26

….with the Jayhawks giving up…

40+ points

…in 9 of its 12 football games in 2017 and…

30+ points

….in 11 of its 11 games against FBS teams in 2017!

Now if the fans of Kansas Football don’t mind being…

The Laughingstock of College Football

…and to have a Damn Moron as your AD then more the power to you folks but please don’t tell us there is anyone working at the University of Kansas that oversees the Kansas Football program that gives a Damn about…

Winning, Excellence, Pride, Class…Hell…ANYTHING AT ALL!

Last week a Coaches Hot Seat member got a text from a football assistant coach at a Big 12 Conference school that said…

“Everyone Big 12 hoping KU keeps DB least 1 more year because it’s only sure win on sked right now if Rhule gets things going at Baylor”

…and on Sunday when it was announced by Kansas that David Beaty would be back for the 2018 season that same assistant coach sent that CHS member the following text!


Be proud fans of Kansas Football….Oh…be so Damn proud!

2. Lovie Smith, Illinois – In two years at Illinois Lovie Smith has now posted records of…

Overall: 5 – 19

Big Ten: 2 – 16

….and in 2017 posting a 2 – 10 record the Illini beat…

Ball State
Western Kentucky

Hell…not only did Illinois go 0 – 9 in Big Ten Conference play in 2017 on October 14 they lost to now 4 – 8 Rutgers….at Home…by the score of 35 – 24!

Please…is there someone….anyone….in North America that can tell us why Lovie Smith is the head coach of the Illinois Football program?

Didn’t think so!

3. David Bailiff, Rice – Posting a record of 1 – 11 in 2017 and sitting on records of…

Overall: 57 – 80

CUSA: 40 – 48

… 11 seasons at Rice the end must be near for head coach David Bailiff which would open up a Helluva job for some coach that could bring some energy to Houston and win some football games!

4. Kliff Kingsbury, Texas Tech – We are not quite sure what it takes to get your ass fired at Texas Tech but if these records won’t do it…

Overall: 30 – 32

Big 12: 16 – 30

….after five years on the job then one would think there are a Helluva lot of…

Below Average As Hell Folks

…working Lubbock at Texas Tech University right now!

While Texas Tech AD Kirby Hocutt is spending a lot of time in Dallas working on the College Football Playoff Committee which tomorrow could be replaced by two monkeys, a house cat, a parakeet and a Damn Moron and do just a good job as the committee members we cannot help but wonder what in the Hell is Hocutt looking at in evaluating the Texas Tech head football coach Kliff Kingsbury who is averaging…

3.2 wins in conference play

…a season playing 9 conference games a year!

Clearly there is some kind of Damn Moron supplement in the water that ADs in the Big 12 Conference are drinking or Big 12 university presidents are just hiring Damn Morons in AD positions!

5. Luke Fickell, Cincinnati – On Saturday the Cincinnati Bearcats eked out a…

22 – 21

…win over a 3 – 9 UConn football team which leaves Cincinnati with a 4 – 8 record in Luck Fickell’s first year on the job and is there anyone on Earth that thinks Fickell will win 6+ games in Year 2 coaching the Bearcats?

Oh…there is someone….did you see that last Saturday Cincinnati got beat 48 – 20 by an East Carolina team that Memphis just beat by the score of 77 – 13?

We don’t believe in allowing a mistake to fester and if the folks at Cincinnati had a Damn Clue they would fire Luck Fickell today but they don’t have a Damn Clue so expect the Bearcats to have another losing season in 2018 and in 2019 as well if Fickell makes it to 2019 as the Cincinnati head coach!

6. Kalani Sitake, BYU – On Saturday night BYU got a win over a hapless Hawaii team by the score of 30 – 20 which leaves the Cougars record in 2017 at 4 – 9 and head coach Kalani Sitake’s record in two seasons on the job at…

13 – 13

….and Sitake took over a BYU football program that had won 8+ games in 9 of the last 10 seasons under Bronco Mendenhall and the other season the Cougars won 7 games!

We don’t have a Damn Clue why BYU only won 4 games in 2017 besides that the Cougars offense was nothing short of a Damn Disaster, but we do know that Kalani Sitake better fix the mess he has created in Provo and fix it in a Helluva hurry or his head coaching career will be over a year from today!

7. Brad Lambert, Charlotte – Charlotte is a very young FBS football program but in five seasons as the head coach at Charlotte on both the FCS and FBS levels head coach Brad Lambert is sitting on records of…

Overall: 17 – 41

CUSA: 4 – 20

…and if you can keep your job with those kind of records then there’ s hope for all the Damn Morons out there that now can see that they might indeed be able to make something of themselves at places like Charlotte, Kansas and Texas Tech so hang in there Damn Morons…hang the Hell in there!

8. Matt Rhule, Baylor – It was reported that Matt Rhule saw the Baylor job as some kind of “mission” for him in moving over from Temple and in Rhule’s first year at Baylor on his “mission” he took over a Bears team that won…

7 Games

…in 2016 and Rhule just posted a record of…

1 – 11

…coaching the Bears so we have this obvious question for Matt:

How’s that “mission” working out for you Son?

The best thing the folks at Baylor can say today is…

Thank God and the Pillsbury Dough Boy for Kansas!

9. Chris Ash, Rutgers – In two seasons as the Rutgers head coach Chris Ash has posted records of..

Overall: 6 – 18

Big Ten: 3 – 15

…and we cannot help but wonder how long Ash can go posting these kinds of records and then we realize this is Rutgers…now playing in the Big Ten and not the Big East…and the expectations at Rutgers….

Not Real Damn High

…so the losing could go on for awhile here now….it could go on for a Damn long time before Ash gets run!

10. Brent Brennan, San Jose State – Congrats to San Jose State head coach Brent Brennan and his football team winning their FIRST football game against a FBS team on Saturday against Wyoming which has got to be Very Damn Embarrassing for the Cowboys and head coach Craig Bohl because you just got beat by a 2 – 11 team cowpokes and that is…

Pretty, Pretty Damn Embarrassing!

Can Brent Brennan win in 2018 more than the 2 games that his football team won in 2017?

We haven’t a Damn clue and don’t really care for that matter!

Jim Mora Fired At UCLA – Post Week 12 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings – Give These Hot Seat Coaches Hell Johnny Cash! – Thank You Mr. Cash!

Jim Mora Fired At UCLA

Over the past few years during the Jim Mora-era as the head coach of the football program a couple of Coaches Hot Seat members have had the opportunity to be in the UCLA Athletics Complex a few times and every time we left the place we got the feeling that working for Jim Mora…

Wasn’t the most enjoyable thing in the world

…and that Mora’s management style probably hurt Mora as much as anything at UCLA…in our humble opinion.

Overall, Jim Mora did a credible job as the head coach at UCLA in 6 seasons on the job posting records of…

Overall:  46 – 30

Pac-12:   28 – 26

Record Against USC:  3 – 3

….but in the end the general downtrend of the Bruins in the last couple of years led to Mora’s firing along with little hope for a move back up for UCLA Football under Mora in 2018 and future years.

We haven’t a clue if UCLA will be able to hire Chip Kelly to coach the Bruins, but it would be fascinating as Hell to see Kelly’s offense with the kind of talent that even average recruiting can get to Westwood, and if Kelly does end up at UCLA it will also be fascinating as Hell to see if college defensive coordinators have figured out what Kelly is doing which Stanford showed on multiple occasions can be stopped with the right approach and schemes on both sides of the ball.

Post Week 12 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings – Give These Hot Seat Coaches Hell Johnny Cash!

Thank You Mr. Cash!

1. Mike Riley, Nebraska – With one game at home against Iowa in the strange odyssey of Mike Riley at Nebraska left after almost three full seasons on the job Riley’s records now stand at….

Overall: 19 – 18

Big Ten: 12 – 13

…which works out to winning percentages of…

Overall: .514

Big Ten: .480

….and Riley’s winning percentages in 14 seasons coaching at Oregon State were…

Overall: .538

Pac-10/12: .479

….which are numbers surprising to no one it must be….except now former Nebraska AD Shawn Eichorst…who if EVER allowed to hire a head football coach on ANY level of football in America again will mean that a Seriously Mentally Ill person has hired a Damn Moron to hire that head football coach!

No…Nebraska is no longer the Nebraska of the 1990s under Tom Osborne BUT Nebraska is a school where we fully expect the head coach playing 13 to 14 games a year to win…

9.5+ Games A Season

….and if the Huskers beat Iowa on Saturday Riley will have averaged winning…

6.67 Games A Season

….and considering that the last coach at Nebraska (Bo Pelini) averaged winning…

9.42 Games A Season

….meaning Riley took over a Pretty Damn Good Football Program at Nebraska there is the clear reason why Mike Riley is less than a week away from being fired as the head coach of the Huskers.

2. Bret Bielema, ArkansasWith reports on Sunday that Arkansas is going to move on without Bret Bielema as the head coach of the Razorbacks in 2018 it is easy to see why that decision was made and it is very simply Bielema’s records at Arkansas:

Overall: 29 – 33

SEC: 11 – 28

….which even if the Hogs beat Mizzou at home next Saturday…not likely…Bielema would have averaged winning…

6 Games Per Season

…and Bobby Petrino in 4 seasons coaching at Arkansas averaged winning…

8.5 Games Per Season

…which happens to be how many games a head coach at Arkansas should win…

8.5 Games Per Season

It’s our opinion that Bret Bielema made a lot of mistakes at Arkansas that were mostly made behind the scenes having to do with recruiting, roster management, personnel decisions, coaching hires, etc. that we could elaborate on in this spot but they are mainly decisions that were made because Bielema fundamentally misunderstood what the SEC Conference is actually all about and it’s NOT…

Power Football

….but rather recruiting…

High-Level Skill Athletes

…which Bielema was NEVER able to recruit to Arkansas in any kind of numbers and that showed up on the field in SPADES which led to Bielema averaging…

6 Wins A Season

…if the Hogs beat Mizzou on Saturday and if they don’t Bielema will have won an average of….

5.8 Games A Season

….which is very simply a Total Damn Disaster at Arkansas!

3. David Beaty, Kansas – On Saturday Oklahoma blasted Kansas by the score of 41 – 3 in Kansas head coach David Beaty’s 35 th game at KU which now leaves Beaty’s records at Kansas…

Overall: 3 – 32

Big 12: 1 – 25

…with a game at Oklahoma State left on the schedule and anyone on Earth that thinks Kansas Football will be better in Beaty’s FOURTH year on the job in 2018 that is a person that needs to…

Check Into The Closest Mental Institution

….wherever they are on the Earth!

This past week an assistant coach in the Big 12 texted a member of Coaches Hot Seat the following:

“Everyone Big 12 hoping KU keeps DB least 1 more year because it’s only sure win on sked right now if Rhule gets things going at Baylor”

Yes…there are some Damn Morons in Lawrence, Kansas that should be fired tonight!

4. Lovie Smith, Illinois – On Saturday Ohio State beat Illinois by the score of 52 – 14 in Lovie Smith’s 23 rd game as the head coach of the Illini which leaves Lovie’s records in two seasons on the job at…

Overall: 5 – 18

Big Ten: 2 – 15

…and we ask again:

Is there someone…anyone…that can tell us why Lovie Smith is the head coach of the Illinois Football team?

4. Kliff Kingsbury, Texas Tech – With Texas Tech’s loss to TCU at home on Saturday that leaves only Texas on the schedule for the 5 – 6 Red Raiders and Kingsbury’s records in FIVE seasons at the school….

Overall: 29 – 32

Big 12: 15 – 30

….and save Tech beating Texas on the road in Austin next Saturday we would guess that TCU assistant coach Sonny Dykes will be the head coach of the Red Raiders sometime in early December…not that we know anything…but just a guess!

6. David Bailiff, Rice – On Saturday Rice lost to Old Dominion which dropped the Owls record to 1 – 10 in 2017 and head coach David Bailiff’s records in 11 seasons at Rice to…

Overall: 57 – 79

CUSA: 40 – 47

…and we fully expect the Rice head coaching job to come open soon which in our opinion is a pretty Damn good job that we would want because we know that…

1. Houston is a great town
2. There’s plenty of high school football talent in south Texas
3. We could prove our chops making Rice Football into a winner

7. Kevin Sumlin, Texas A&M – Even with the win over Ole Miss on Saturday it’s our opinion that Texas A&M is going to change head coaches in a week or so because of the following…

If A&M loses on the road to LSU next Saturday that will mean that Kevin Sumlin will have lost 5 games in each of the past 4 seasons at Texas A&M which is a place where a coach has EVERYTHING and should be able by his SIXTH season on the job compete with Alabama for the SEC West Division Title and come on now….

The Aggies are not in the same Universe with Alabama after SIX seasons of Kevin Sumlin coaching A&M!

What will be Damn interesting is who Texas A&M will hire to follow Sumlin who in our opinion if he is to be considered successful will win an average of…

9.5 Games A Year

with Sumlin averaging 8.5 Wins which let’s face it folks…

That’s Just Not Good Enough for Texas A&M….PERIOD!

8. Luke Fickell, Cincinnati – We are not quite sure what the folks at Cincinnati saw in Luke Fickell who as the Interim Head Coach at Ohio State in 2011 posted a record of…

6 – 7

…with a team that had enough talent to win the Big Ten and National Title but we said last year if the folks at Cincinnati think Luke Fickell is the man to lead their program….OK…let’s see what the boy can do.

OK…Luke Fickell in his first year on the job coaching the Bearcats and is now sitting on a record of 3 – 8 after his team got BLASTED by a 2 win East Carolina team on Saturday by the score of…

48 – 20

….and on top of what has turned into nothing short of a Complete Freaking Disaster for Cincinnati Football we learned via USA Today a few weeks ago that Fickell has a….wait for it….

$9.1 Million Dollar Buyout

….for doing what exactly before he became the head coach at Cincinnati last year we haven’t a Damn Clue but then we all know that any random coaches agent can roll most any Damn athletic director in America now and clearly the Cincinnati AD got his ass rolled by Fickell’s!

Cincinnati hosts a 3 wins UConn team next Saturday and in our opinion if Fickell can’t win this game…

His Ass Should Be Fired on Saturday Night

….$9.1 Million Dollar Buyout or not because there would be no Damn point to keep him employed as the head coach of the Bearcats if he can’t beat this PITIFUL UConn team at home…in our humble opinion!

9. Kalani Sitake, BYU – For the love of Brigham Young…meaning the original Brigham Young who reportedly had 55 wives which is a stunning number in every way we can imagine because just how in the Hell can one man handle 55 women telling him on constant basis “they need this” or “they need that” which our wives are constantly telling us which must have led to some Helluva BIG shopping trips for Ole Brig as we like to call him here at Coaches Hot Seat when around our Mormon friends just to dig them a little!

Oh..getting back to the for the love of Brigham Young how in the Hell exactly can BYU lose to UMass at home by the score of…

16 – 10

…in head coach Kalani Sitake’s 25 th game at the school?

That loss to UMass now leaves Sitake’s record at BYU in 2 seasons at…

Overall: 12 – 13

…and the 3 – 9 Cougars still have to play at Hawaii next Saturday!

We are not sure exactly what is going on at BYU but whatever the Hell it is…it’s not good…it’s just no Damn good….we sure the Hell know that!

10. Todd Graham, Arizona State – With the win on Saturday over Oregon State Todd Graham’s Sun Devils are now 6 – 5 on the season with only the Territorial Cup game at home against Arizona left on the schedule that we were told on Sunday…

Todd Graham MUST WIN to keep his job at Arizona State

In 6 seasons at Arizona State Todd Graham now how records on the board of…

Overall: 45 – 31

Pac-12: 30 – 23

…which if you give ASU the win over Arizona adds up to Graham averaging…

7.67 Wins Per Season

…and we have Arizona State as a…

8.5 Wins Per Season

….school to keep your rear-end off the Hot Seat.

We guess there’s an outside chance that Todd Graham could keep his job at ASU even he lost to Arizona but something we learned a long time ago is that when things get marginal in a job a person in the position of hiring + firing someone will almost always fire someone…

They Don’t Like

…and work like Hell to…

Keep Someone They Do Like

…which in the end might just seal the fate for Todd Graham in Tempe!

16 Head Coaches Facing MUST WIN Games In Week 12 Whose Teams + Coaches Need To Take It To The Limit! – Thanks Randy!


16 Head Coaches Facing MUST WIN Games In Week 12 Whose Teams + Coaches Need To Take It To The Limit! – Thanks Randy!


Thanks Randy!

Bill Snyder, Kansas State vs. Oklahoma State – There are few things as Totally Damn Worthless as people holding prominent positions trying to get their kids into those positions as they head for the doors and that is exactly what Bill Snyder is trying to do at Kansas State with his son Sean:

Kansas State’s future is murky as Bill Snyder tried to wield his power on way out, Dennis Dodd, CBS Sports

Clearly, Bill Snyder believes that his son Sean doesn’t have the ability or chops to get a Power 5 Conference Head Coaching Job on his own so that’s why Daddy is trying to strong-arm Kansas State into hiring his Boy which if you are like us makes Bill Snyder…

Worthless As Hell

…and his Sean even worse because if Sean had actually been raised by a…

REAL Man and REAL American

…Sean would tell his Daddy to butt the Hell out of his coaching career because Sean wouldn’t want his Daddy getting him the Kansas State job but would rather if Sean was a..

REAL Man and REAL American

…he would earn and get the job himself but clearly the Snyders are…

NOT REAL Men nor REAL Americans

…and with that in mind every American worth a Damn should hope like Hell that Worthless as Hell Bill Snyder loses his last two games against…

At Oklahoma State
Iowa State

….so the Wildcats finish at 5 – 7 and Billy “My son Sean is such a Candy Ass Pussy I have to get the Kansas State Job for Him” Snyder will go out the…

Total Damn Loser

….that we all know he is now!

BEAT the Living Hell out of Bill and Sean Snyder Oklahoma State and if you can hang Freaking 100….hang Freaking 100 on ‘em Mike Gundy!

What a Total Embarrassment that Bill Snyder is to Kansas State, College Football and America for that matter!

If you think we are HOT about Bill Snyder trying to pass down the Kansas State Football Program to his son Sean like KSU Football is some kind of medieval kingdom that can be passed down to someone because of their last name and they won the sperm lottery then you would be RIGHT but then any Real America would vehemently object to this Total Horseshit as well and if you think what Bill Snyder is doing is right…

You are not a REAL American…PERIOD!

Jim Harbaugh, Michigan vs. Wisconsin – Since Penn State destroyed Michigan in Week 8 the Wolverines offense has scored….


…points against its last three opponents and clearly Blue is going to need 35+ points on Saturday to beat Wisconsin in Madison and we are fascinated to see how far this Michigan team has come this year and if Harbaugh can actually beat a football team with a winning record in 2017!

Our recommendation to Jim Harbaugh: Don’t lose to Wisconsin AND Ohio State to end the 2017 season Jimmy or your ass is going right on the Hot Seat heading into 2018!

David Beaty, Kansas vs. Oklahoma – The 1 – 9 Kansas Jayhawks head coach David Beaty may have the support of the KU Chancellor but in the Real World which clearly doesn’t include Lawrence, Kansas when you have posted these kind of records in THREE year on the job…

Overall: 3 – 31

Big 12: 1 – 24

…your ass gets fired but then we are talking about the University of Kansas here where…

We are no Damn where near Below Damn Average in Football and we are Damn proud of it!

Oh…Kansas has…


…to finish the 2017 so David Beaty you got…

1 – 11

…in 2017 and…

3 – 33

…in 3 years on the job Son?

You are about to Son!

Brian Kelly, Notre Dame vs. Navy – Oh this is very simple…if Notre Dame happened to lose to Navy on Saturday after getting destroyed by Miami last Saturday Brian Kelly’s ass would be right back on the Hot Seat with a game still left against Stanford on The Farm next week and if Kelly lost to both Navy and Stanford and finished at 8 – 4 on the season in our opinion Kelly would be fired shortly after the Stanford game on November 25 th!

Don’t lose to Navy Brian Kelly!

Lovie Smith, Illinois vs. Ohio State – We asked the 178 Coaches Hot Seat members this week if anyone thought…

Lovie Smith would ever field a .500 or better football team at Illinois

…and as of Friday morning 154 Coaches Hot Seat members have responded and the results were…

154 – No
0 – Yes

This week the 2 – 8 Illini who have beaten Ball State and Western Kentucky this season and are 0 – 7 in Big Ten play face Ohio State and then finish with Northwestern which looks like two more losses to us which would leave Smith’s record after 2 years at Illinois at….

Overall: 5 – 19

Big Ten: 2 – 16

Please….someone…anyone…why the Hell is Lovie Smith the head football coach at Illinois?

There are just so many Damn Morons in the world in important positions in collegiate athletics one has to wonder…

How in the Hell did they get into these jobs?

Mike Riley, Nebraska vs. Penn State – The Mike Riley era is OVER at Nebraska so we don’t expect much out of the Huskers this week against a Penn State team that could hang almost any number they wanted on the Blackshirts defense so this isn’t so much a MUST WIN Game for Mike Riley and Nebraska as it is…

Just Don’t Totally Embarrass the State of Nebraska

…please now Mike Riley!

Jim Mora, UCLA vs. USC – Jim Mora is moving very close to the “Mendoza Line” with his Pac-12 Conference record now sitting at…

28 – 25

…with games left against USC this week and California next week which could both easily be losses but since we are talking about UCLA here where your Sorry Damn Ass can go on a retail shoplifting spree and you can remain on the Bruins Basketball Team why should we expect Damn anything out of UCLA Football?

UCLA = Where we allow our student athletes to go on shoplifting sprees at retail stores and stay on athletic teams!

Oh UCLA…be so Damn Proud!

Kliff Kingsbury, Texas Tech vs. TCU – Kliff Kingsbury is sitting on some very Damn average records as the head football coach at Texas Tech…

Overall: 29 – 31

Big 12: 15 – 29

….and we cannot imagine that Kingsbury will be the head coach at Tech in 2018 if the 5 – 5 Red Raiders don’t win at least one of their last two games against…

At Texas

….and we have to think that beating TCU at home in Lubbock by out-scoring the Horned Frogs will be a Helluva lot easier than beating Texas in Austin next Friday when the Longhorns will probably need a win also to get to 6 wins on the year!

You better Damn beat TCU on Saturday Son!

Bret Bielema, Arkansas vs. Mississippi State – To really understand what a Total Disaster that Bret Bielema has been for Arkansas Football over the past FIVE seasons posting records of…

Overall: 29 – 32

SEC: 11 – 27

….one only has to look at how many games the other 13 SEC schools had won in the previous 5 years before 2013, from 2008 – 2012, to see how good the Arkansas football program was when Bielema took over:

Games Won Previous 5 Seasons by SEC Teams – 2008 – 2012

Alabama – 61
Florida – 51
LSU – 51
Georgia – 46
South Carolina – 45
Missouri – 41
Arkansas – 38
Auburn – 38
Texas A&M – 37
Mississippi State – 33
Ole Miss – 31
Tennessee – 28
Kentucky – 27
Vanderbilt – 26

As anyone can clearly see above Arkansas was tied with Auburn for 38 wins between 2008 and 2012 before Bret Bielema arrived in Fayetteville and that includes the 4 win Total Disaster Season under John L. Smith in 2012 at Arkansas after Bobby Petrino dalliance with the blonde on the motorcycle so when Bielema arrived in town to coach the Razorbacks he was taking on a pretty good Arkansas Football Program and in the last 5 seasons Bielema has won…

29 Football Games

….with games still left at home against Mississippi State and Missouri which from where we sit could be “boat race” games with Arkansas getting “boat raced” right out of its home stadium in Bielema’s last two games as the Arkansas head coach!

Yes..Mississippi State is a MUST WIN Game for Bret Bielema and Arkansas!

Matt Rhule, Baylor vs. Iowa State – Matt Rhule is sitting on a record of 1 – 9 record in his first year at Baylor and still has to play games against…

Iowa State

…which looks like a 1 – 11 record to us and one has to wonder just why in the Hell Rhule was hired if he is going to win…

ONE Football Game

….with a Baylor team that won…

47 Football Games

…in the last 5 seasons because there is still plenty of Damn talent in Waco!

Yes…Iowa State is a MUST WIN Game for Matt Rhule and Baylor!

Kalani Sitake, BYU vs. UMass – In 2017 BYU has 3 wins and those 3 wins are over…

Portland State
San Jose State

…and BYU has games left against 2 teams with losing records….

At Hawaii

…and if Kalani Sitake’s Cougars can’t win these last 2 games then why in the Hell is Sitake the head coach at BYU?

There is No Damn Good Answer to that question!

Todd Graham, Arizona State vs. Oregon State – At the beginning of the 2017 college football season it was thought by us here at Coaches Hot Seat that Arizona State head coach Todd Graham needed at least…

8 wins in 2017

…to return to coach the Sun Devils next year and now in the middle of November it’s our opinion that if ASU finished with…

7 Wins in 2017

…that Todd Graham could hang onto his job and now at 5 – 5 Todd Graham better Damn win his last two games against…

At Oregon State

….and if Graham can’t beat Oregon State with an interim head coach then really now…

What the Hell’s the point of Todd Graham being the head coach at Arizona State?

Kevin Sumlin, Texas A&M vs. Ole Miss – The word on the street in south Texas is that the decision on Kevin Sumlin has already been made by the Aggies making decisions in and out of College Station…meaning Sumlin is GONE….and with that in mind A&M’s Week 12 game against Ole Miss doesn’t really mean that much for the 6 – 4 Aggies but then Sumlin doesn’t want to go out losing games to…

At Ole Miss

….does he?

NO….and once the season is over and Kevin Sumlin is sent packing it is going to be fascinating to see how A&M hires in this spot….Damn fascinating!

Steve Addazio, Boston College vs. UConn – The 5 – 5 Boston College Eagles and their head coach Steve Addazio REALLY need to win their last two games against…

At Syracuse

….because anything less than 6 wins in 2017 and we believe Steve Addazio is DONE at BC and thus beating UConn is really a MUST WIN Game because you sure the Hell don’t want to go to Syracuse and try and win a game to hang onto your Damn job!

Barry Odom, Missouri vs. Vanderbilt –Missouri is now 5 – 5 on the year after wins over…


…which before the season looked like a 2 – 2 series of games at best but with Florida and Tennessee football programs totally imploding Barry Odom has a chance to get to 6 wins in 2017 with games left against…

At Vanderbilt
At Arkansas

….and thus beating Vandy on Saturday is CRITICAL because Bret Bielema and the Hogs are going to need to win that last game of the season also and no doubt coaches across the SEC will be hoping that Bielema will find a way to hang onto his job so that Hogs will stay in the toilet at least into 2018 and beyond!

Don’t lose to Vandy Barry Odom!

Derek Mason, Vanderbilt vs. Missouri – After getting Vandy to a bowl game in 2016 head coach Derek Mason really can’t afford the 4 – 6 Commodores to not win 6+ games in 2017 and with these games left on the schedule…

At Tennessee

…if you don’t beat Mizzou on Saturday the Tennessee game doesn’t really mean that much but then we remember that we are living in…

Candy Ass America

…today where even 5 – 7 teams are going to bowl games but what about this…

Maybe Vandy winning 6 games in 2017 and EARNING right to go to a bowl game Derek Mason!

Is that too much to ask?

The Butch Jones Firing at Tennessee – Post Week 11 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings – Give These Hot Seat Coaches Hell Mr. Cash! – Thanks Johnny!

The Butch Jones Firing at Tennessee

The Twitter handle @FootballTimeMag tweeted the following after Butch Jones was fired on Sunday…

“Butch Jones was an abusive, vindictive, immoral, tyrannical dictator during his time at Tennessee. He cared only for Butch Jones and would destroy anyone in his path who challenged him. Sad that his players and staffers ever had to put up with such a small minded and hateful man.”

…and although we cannot verify the above with a first-hand account we have gotten enough opinions from people that have followed the Tennessee Football program for years that have told us similar things to believe the person behind the above tweet believes it to be true and in our opinion we believe it to be true also.

We could write a lot in this spot about what we have heard about Butch Jones from former players and coaches that played or worked with Jones in this spot, but why waste the time since what got Jones eventually fired at Tennessee is something that Butch Jones probably hasn’t….probably never will…come to grips with and in the end Jones Win/Loss record was driven by Butch’s unforced errors and mistakes off the field that collectively did tremendous damage to the Tennessee football program both on and off the field.

All we can say to Tennessee AD John Currie is that he better Damn get this new head coaching hire right because a mistake here Son and you will be out of collegiate athletics on the FBS level within three years!

It’s just our humble opinion but Tennessee should be able to hire a Head Football Coach who is a Helluva Coach and a Helluva Human Being…..Hell….the fans of Tennessee Football DESERVE that and if the Vols fall short of that mark we are going be about as disappointed as we were years ago when the Vols hired Lane Kiffin which we said was going to be a Damn Disaster and in the end launched the Damn Disaster Wagon Train to Hell the Tennessee Football program is still on right now!

Post Week 11 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

Give These Hot Seat Coaches Hell Mr. Cash!

Thanks Johnny!

1. Mike Riley, Nebraska – With Nebraska’s 54 – 21 loss to a 5 – 5 Minnesota team on Saturday we knew already that the Mike Riley three year era in Lincoln was over but for those 3 Damn Morons that didn’t know it was over…

The Mike Riley Era Is Over at Nebraska!

Mike Riley’s records at Nebraska now stand at…

Overall: 19 – 17

Big Ten: 12 – 12

…..and to say that the Riley hiring at Nebraska was one of the most inexplicable hirings in our 40+ years of watching college football here at Coaches Hot Seat would be a MASSIVE understatement which brings us to a much-discussed subject at Coaches Hot Seat:

Hiring the RIGHT Head Football Coach at “X” School

It’s self-evident to anyone with a working brain after firing Bo Pelini who averaged winning…

9.43 Wins Per Year

…coaching at Nebraska that Mike Riley is not going to be on a Potential Head Coaches List to replace Pelini if that list has 100 names on it which makes us wonder…

How could Nebraska have hired Mike Riley?
How could Tennessee have hired Derek Dooley?
How could Kansas have hired Charlie Weis and David Beaty?
How could Alabama have hired Mike Price?
How could Notre Dame have hired Charlie Weis?

We could go on for awhile here because we have a list of dozens of Inexplicable College Football Head Coaching Hires since the 1970s which brings us to what should be a Fail-Safe procedure before an AD at any school hires a new head football coach:

Talk to Football People before you make that hire and make sure those are Football People that are up on today’s game of college football because if they are they KNOW whether a coach can “really coach” or not and most importantly if he can get MORE out of players and a team than what most coaches can get because if he can then he can “really coach!” An AD doesn’t want to hire a coach that got “what was expected” out a football team and program but rather an AD should look to hire a coach that consistently has his teams performing at HIGHER levels than the talent-level he has on hand to coach. That may seem obvious, but college football coaches get hired every year that are only Average or Slightly Better Than Average relative to what they have at their disposal to coach so look for someone Good To Great at least ADs!

The best mental exercise for any AD to use when considering hiring “X” coach it to imagine in your mind’s eye what the coaches at your major rivals will say the moment they hear the name of the coach you are considering. Example:

Tennessee AD John Currie should think when hiring the next head of the Vols what will be Nick Saban’s IMMEDIATE reaction upon hearing who the next Tennessee head coach is going to be…if Saban says in your mind’s eye anything but…

“Damn! Well…that means the Tennessee game will be competitive again!”

….move on to another coach until you get the right reaction from Saban!

As for Mike Riley we will always wish Coach Riley the best and we certainly hope he can go out with a win in one of his last two games…

At Penn State

Give ‘Em Hell Mike Riley!

2. Bret Bielema, Arkansas – 5 years ago both Butch Jones and Bret Bielema were hired at Tennessee and Arkansas respectfully and with Jones now sent packing its worth looking at both of their records besides each other, but first one must understand that Bielema took over a Helluva Lot better football program than Jones took over at Tennessee which was a Total Disaster after Kiffin and Dooley with Bielema taking over an Arkansas team loaded with talent that under Bobby Petrino was one of the top teams in the SEC!

Butch Jones: 2013 – 2017

Overall: 34 – 27

SEC: 14 – 24

Bret Bielema: 2013 – 2017

Overall: 29 – 32

SEC: 11 – 27

Translation: Butch Jones was Borderline Disaster at Tennessee primarily driven by Butch’s own unforced errors and Bret Bielema has been nothing short of…

Complete Freaking Disaster

…after taking over a sold Hogs program at Arkansas and the Hogs at 4 – 6 on the season still have to play…

Mississippi State

…this season!

We are going to let everyone on in a little secret about Hiring and Firing people:

99 times out of 100 the person hiring someone knows within 90 days whether they made a good hire or not.

Yes….one hears all the time that a coach needs several years to “get his kids in the program” but the reality is that Good forget about Great Coaches can immediately impact a football program and the things that a head coach does in his first 90 days often tells the tale on whether that coach will be successful or not and whether the Athletic Director that hired that coach admits it or not…He/She knows very soon after the hire whether it was the right hire or not.

We say the above because our Good Arkansas Buddy in Ft. Smith, Arkansas who has been going to Razorbacks football games for 40+ years told us a couple of months into Bielema’s tenure at Arkansas….

“It’s just not going to work with Bielema. It may take a couple of years or five years but in the end it’s just not going to work out for Bret at Arkansas.”

Our recommendation to the Good Folks at the University of Arkansas:

Send Bret Bielema packing in a few weeks and hire Memphis head coach Mike Norvell to coach the Razorbacks!

3. Kevin Sumlin, Texas A&M – An amazing number to look at when considering Kevin Sumlin’s career as the head coach at Texas A&M is that in his SIXTH year at the school that has EVERYTHING a head coach would need to win a Helluva lot of football games is that the Aggies are…

6 – 4

….with games still left against…

At Mississippi

…which of course means that A&M will officially be looking for a new head football coach in a few weeks and this is going to be a Helluva interesting hire in College Station.

A few of us here at Coaches Hot Seat have been lucky enough to have been on the Texas A&M campus a dozen-plus times both for football games and during the off-football-season and Aggieville is just a very unique place that needs a very unique coach that can fully embrace and get a Helluva lot out of A&M and then translate that “Aggie Energy” as we like to call it to the football field to win football games!

It’s often said that a head football coach is the “primary face” of a college football program and often a school and sometimes an entire state like Nick Saban is in Alabama, and to understand that when traveling across America get questions from people in sports, in business, in politics, in every line of work about Nick Saban and what he is doing at Alabama who primarily know something about the state of Alabama because of the Alabama football program and its success over the past decade. At Texas A&M the head football coach is REALLY the face of the Aggies Football Program and the Entire School for that matter and A&M AD Scott Woodward better Damn not mess up this hire because if he does his ass will be out of a job in short order!

4. David Beaty, Kansas – David Beaty’s record in 3 seasons as the head coach at Kansas:

Overall: 3 – 31

Big 12: 1 – 24

That’s enough said about David Beaty at Kansas.

5. Lovie Smith, Illinois – With the Illini’s loss at home to Indiana on Saturday Illinois is now 2 – 8 overall and 0 – 7 in the Big Ten and Lovie Smith’s records in 2 seasons at Illinois now stand at:

Overall: 5 – 17

Big Ten: 2 – 14

Oh…in 2 seasons Lovie Smith + Illinois has not beaten a FBS team with a winning record.

Please…someone…anyone…why is Lovie Smith the head coach of the Illinois Football team?

6. Todd Graham, Arizona State – With Arizona State’s loss to UCLA at the Rose Bowl on Saturday the Sun Devils fell to 5 – 5 on the year and still have to play games against…

At Oregon State

….which to us looks like a 6 – 6 finish to the season based upon the way Arizona is playing these days and there’s not a chance in Hell or Tempe in the Summer that Todd Graham can hang onto his job with a .500 record in his SIXTH season on the job at Arizona State.

Todd Graham is a solid football coach who like Butch Jones has made some self-inflicted + unforced errors at Arizona State and if the folks at ASU are going to be make a head coaching change they must do ONE thing for sure:

Hire A Head Coach BETTER Than Todd Graham!

7. David Bailiff, Rice – David Bailiff has been at the head coach at Rice for 11 years now which is as long as Coaches Hot Seat has been around starting in the 2007 college football season and in those 11 seasons Bailiff has put up records of…

Overall: 57 – 78

CUSA: 40 – 46

….and he has THREE .500 or better seasons + bowl game trips with the last one coming in 2014 and in our opinion with the 1 – 9 Owls still having to play…

At Old Dominion
North Texas

….Rice will be looking for a new head football coach in a couple of weeks and also in our opinion Rice will be able to hire a pretty good coach because Rice also-also in our opinion is a Pretty Damn Good Job with a Helluva lot of very good football players within a 3 hour drive of its campus in Houston!

Great Luck the rest of the season Coach Bailiff!

8. Kliff Kingsbury, Texas Tech – Kliff Kingsbury and Texas Tech got a MUST WIN over Baylor on Saturday but then this Baylor football team is 1 – 9 with only a win over Kansas so beating the Bears isn’t much at all and with that win the Red Raiders are now 5 – 5 on the season with games still left against…

At Texas

Damn….it will take some serious football playing for Texas Tech to win either of their last two games and we guess if Tech did win both of them and finished at 7 – 5 overall and 4 – 5 in Big 12 play Kingsbury could hang onto his job in Lubbock but that’s a Helluva BIG IF!

9. Brad Lambert, Charlotte – What we know about the Charlotte Football program you could write on a matchbook but we do know that head coach Brad Lambert in FIVE seasons coaching a Charlotte has records on the board of…

Overall: 17 – 39

CUSA: 4 – 18

…and even at Charlotte that must put your job in serious jeopardy!

10. Jim Mora, UCLA – Jim Mora and the UCLA Bruins got their MUST WIN over Arizona State on Saturday with reportedly signs out at the Rose Bowl encouraging the folks at UCLA to find a new head football coach and now the 5 – 5 Bruins still have on their schedule games against…


…..and at best that looks like 6 – 6 on the season in Mora’s SIXTH year on the job in Westwood.

With a $12M+ buyout and very few rich UCLA alumni that give two rips whether the Bruins win another football game or not it’s not likely that Mora will be fired after this season but that sure the Hell doesn’t mean he’s not on the Hot Seat at Coaches Hot Seat where…

We Expect Excellence In A Place Like UCLA

…even if the folks in the UCLA Athletic Department are willing to accept…

Total Damn Ass MEDIOCRITY!

16 CFB Head Coaches Facing MUST WIN Games in Week 11 Whose Coaches + Teams Need To Take It To the Limit! – Thanks Randy!

Thanks Randy!

Luke Fickell, Cincinnati vs. Temple – In his first season as the head coach at Cincinnati Luke Fickell is off to a dreadful start which would have moved into Total Disaster area if the Bearcats had lost to Tulane who they beat by one point last Saturday and for Damn sure Fickell better not lose at home to Temple at home on Friday night with these games left to be played after the Owls:

At East Carolina

Hell….Cincinnati SHOULD be able to win their last two games over ECU and UConn so beating Temple to give the Bearcats at least a chance to get to 6 wins in 2017 is a MUST so coach your team up Son!

Kalani Sitake, BYU vs. UNLV – BYU is already 2 – 8 on the season which will break a streak of 12 straight postseason appearances for the Cougars and now it’s a matter of BYU not embarrassing itself down the stretch in its last three games against…

At Hawaii

A normal BYU team would have a better than 90% chance of beating the last three teams on their schedule but Hell this BYU team…might just lose all three….and if BYU finishes at 2 – 10 in 2017 Kalani Sitake might very well find himself out of a job come early December because our Mormon friends in Utah are not going to put up with the BYU Football program being Totally Destroyed by ANYONE!

Gus Malzahn, Auburn vs. Georgia – Not only is Gus Malzahn…

0 – 6

…the last three seasons against Georgia and Alabama Malzahn’s record in SEC play since the 2014 season forward now stands at…

16 – 14

…and because of that the calculus on The Plains is very simple for Gus Malzahn…if Auburn loses to Georgia and Alabama this year he will be…

0 – 8

…against the Dawgs and Tide the last 4 seasons and Malzahn’s record in SEC play will be sitting on…

16 – 16

…and there’s not a chance in Hell Gus Malzahn can survive to coach Auburn again in 2018 with that kind of record in SEC play!

Beat Georgia Gus Malzahn because for Damn sure you don’t want your job status for 2018 riding on beating Nick Saban and Alabama on November 25 Son!

Steve Addazio, Boston College vs. NC State – Steve Addazio and Boston College has won 3 straight games over…

Florida State

….to raise the Eagles record to 5 – 4 on the year but to get to 6 wins for Addazio to keep his job he needs at least 1 win in BC’s last three games against…

NC State
At Syracuse

Hell…if Steve Addazio can’t win at least 1 of their last 3 games his ass should be fired in late November!

Bret Bielema, Arkansas vs. LSU – With the Total Damn Disaster against Coastal Carolina narrowly avoided last week Bret Bielema is still sitting on a record in SEC play of…

11 – 26

….in 5 years as the head coach at Arkansas and the 4 – 5 Razorbacks still have games in 2017 against….

Mississippi State

Damn….that looks like 3 more losses for Arkansas this season which means Arkansas would finish at….

4 – 8

…and we remind everyone this is Bielema’s FIFTH season on the job but then now…this is the University of Arkansas we are talking about here where…

We Are Below Damn Average and Proud Of It!

Kliff Kingsbury, Texas Tech vs. Baylor – In FIVE seasons as the head coach at Texas Tech Kliff Kingsbury the prodigal son is sitting on records of…

Overall: 28 – 31

Big 12: 14 – 29

….and Tech still has to play this season games against:

At Texas

Hell…if Tech doesn’t beat Baylor on Saturday 4 – 5 Tech has no chance to get to 6 wins in 2017 which for Texas Tech Football still…

Below Damn Average

….so Tech will be looking for a new head football coach save Kingsbury running the table the rest of the year…right?


Matt Rhule, Baylor vs. Texas Tech – Luckily for Matt Rhule and Baylor there are Helluva lot of Damn Morons in Lawrence, Kansas that have no Damn idea how to hire a head football coach so the Bears did get a win over Kansas last week but if Rhule is actually coaching this Baylor football team one would think he would get at least 2 wins in 2017….right?


Baylor has left in 2017 games against…

Texas Tech
Iowa State

Damn Matt Rhule…you better beat Tech on Saturday Son because there’s No Damn Way you are beating Iowa State and TCU!

Lovie Smith, Illinois vs. Indiana – With the loss to Purdue in Week 10 the Illini are now 2 – 7 on the season with games still left against…

At Ohio State

….and if Illinois doesn’t beat Indiana at home they are looking at 2 – 10 record in 2017 after Lovie Smith posted a record of 3 – 9 in his first year on the job!

Damn…please…someone…anyone…why is Lovie Smith the head coach of the Illinois football team?

Mark Stoops, Kentucky vs. Vanderbilt – Last week Mark Stoops lost a MUST WIN Game against Ole Miss at home and if Mark wants to find his ass right back on the Hot Seat as the 2017 football season heads to the close then he can…

Lose to Vanderbilt on Saturday

….and no doubt if Mark Stoops loses this game his ass will be right back on the Hot Seat with a record of 6 – 4 and games still left against…

At Georgia

Don’t lose Vandy Mark….no don’t do that Son!

Derek Mason, Vanderbilt vs. Kentucky – Derek Mason got his MUST WIN over Western Kentucky last Saturday and now the Commodores must keep things rolling by beating Kentucky in Week 11 because 4 – 5 Vandy needs 2 more wins and they still have to play games against…

At Tennessee

Don’t lose to Kentucky Derek…no don’t do that Son!

David Beaty, Kansas vs. Texas – Last season Kansas beat Texas in Lawrence and this year the Jayhawks are 30+ point underdogs against the Horns in Austin and does anyone think Kansas can win this football game?

Not A Damn Person on Earth!

In 3 seasons as the head coach at Kansas David Beaty’s records are…

Overall: 3 – 30

Big 12: 1 – 23

….and KU still has to play this season:

At Texas
At Oklahoma State

Turn out the lights because the party is way Damn over in Lawrence for David Beaty!

Butch Jones, Tennessee vs. Missouri – We have been hearing a Helluva lot of interesting info coming out of East Tennessee about who might be the next head coach of the Tennessee Vols with that info going like…

Jon Gruden will or has already been offered the Vols head coaching job

….and right now there are about 5 coaches on the list in the #2 slot if Gruden turns UT down and maybe takes another NFL head coaching job.

The most hilarious thing this week in SEC Football is that Tennessee Football is…

12+ point underdogs

…to a Mizzou Football Team that has a head coach in Barry Odom who in 2 seasons has a record in SEC play of…

3 – 10!


Barry Odom, Missouri vs. Tennessee – Barry Odom has won 3 straight games over 3 pretty weak teams in…


…to raise Mizzou’s record to 4 – 5 on the season and this Saturday’s game against a collapsing Tennessee team is a MUST WIN for Odom because a loss in this spot would be nothing short of a…

Complete Freaking Disaster

…and Barry Odom’s ass will be nothing short of a Roaring Forest Fire!

Todd Graham, Arizona State vs. UCLA – We checked in with our contact in Tempe again this week and the word on Todd Graham’s future at Arizona State is that he needs…

7 Wins

…in 2017 to return to coach the Sun Devils next season and now at 5 – 4 with these games left to be played…

At Oregon State

…beating UCLA on Saturday is just flat-out a MUST WIN for Todd Graham!

Jim Mora, UCLA vs. Arizona State – To really understand how bad things are for Jim Mora at UCLA in Jim’s last 25 games coaching the Bruins his record is…

9 – 16

….and fired UCLA head coach Rick Neuheisel’s record in his last 25 games in Westwood was…

10 – 15

….and Rick’s ass got run right of town so Mora would be held to the same standard….right?

Well…one would hope so!

UCLA is now 4 – 5 on the season with games left against…

Arizona State

….and that sure the Hell looks like a losing season to us especially if the Bruins lose to the Sun Devils in the Rose Bowl on Saturday!

Post Week 10 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings – Please Let Us Introduce the Man That Needs No Introduction…Mr. Johnny Cash! Give These Hot Seat Coaches Hell Johnny! – Thank You Mr. Cash!

Post Week 10 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

Please Let Us Introduce the Man That Needs No Introduction…Mr. Johnny Cash! Give These Hot Seat Coaches Hell Johnny!

Thank You Mr. Cash!

1. Kevin Sumlin, Texas A&M – It’s hard to know exactly where things went wrong for Kevin Sumlin at Texas A&M but then if Johnny Manziel had been kicked of the Aggies football team for the Horseshit that Johnny was up to a few years back and it seems like is still up to today would Sumlin have ever posted that…

11 – 2

…record in 2012 and beaten Alabama in Tuscaloosa?

No…not a chance in Hell and when you take out that first season of Sumlin’s at Texas A&M which included an overall record of 11 – 2 and a SEC record of 6 – 2 one finds what one would expect to find for a place like Aggies Football over the past FIVE seasons:

Kevin Sumlin: 2013 – 2017

Overall: 38 – 23 (.623)

SEC: 18 – 20 (.474)

We remind everyone that the above records over the past FIVE seasons were posted at TEXAS A&M where any Damn Moron can win 7+ games a year and you have EVERYTHING you could possibly want to win a Helluva lot of football games so in reality the story of Kevin Sumlin in College Station in the end will be…

Johnny Manziel for a couple of seasons…and not the Hell much else!

One thing we noticed this year watching Texas A&M football games were the announcers almost bragging about how Kevin Sumlin was, “playing a lot freshman” as if for some reason the Aggies in Sumlin’s FIFTH year on the job don’t have….

Any Damn Upperclassman To Play

…which may in fact be the story of what has been going on at A&M and as we look down the Aggies Football roster today in early November 2017 we cannot help but think…

Where in the Hell did all those great players that Kevin Sumlin recruited to Texas A&M go?

On top of all of the above with the loss to Auburn on Saturday Kevin Sumlin’s record against Power 5 Conference Schools at Kyle Field now stands at…

9 – 14

….and guess who those 9 wins are over?

Mississippi State x 2
Arizona State
South Carolina x 2

Anyone willing to hazard a guess how many of the above teams had winning records in the years that A&M beat them at Kyle Field?


It seems obvious now that Kevin Sumlin will be fired before December arrives with the 5 – 4 Aggies having games left against…

New Mexico
At Ole Miss

…and it will be Damn Fascinating to see who they hire to replace Sumlin because the folks at Texas A&M like the folks at Florida haven’t exactly been hitting it out of the park in hiring head football coaches in recent years!

If we were the AD at Texas A&M we would offer Virginia Tech head coach Justin Fuente…

$7M a year for 6 years

…and see if he could be lured to College Station to take on the challenge of coaching + winning in the SEC.

2. Butch Jones, Tennessee – After four straight losses Tennessee finally got a win on Saturday against a Southern Miss team that just lost to UAB which raises the Vols record to 4 – 5 on the season with games left against…

At Missouri

….which us looks like at least 7 losses in Jones FIFTH year in Knoxville which came in the wake of former Tennessee Vols great Antone Davis claiming as he resigned a position with the University of Tennessee that

Davis claimed he suffered “constant intimidation, bullying, and mental abuse” from Butch Jones and that he resigned from UT because of the “hostile work environment.”

As we try to imagine Butch Jones bullying Antone Davis when anyone here at Coaches Hot Seat would have kicked Jones Precious Damn Ass if he had tried that with us in the process teaching Butch a few things we learned in the US Navy we cannot help but wonder just what in the Hell is going on…and has been going on…for the last five years in Knoxville?

Football is a tough sport…it’s a rough sport…it’s not a sport for the weak-hearted, but there’s no excuse for Butch Jones bullying ANYONE and if the above is true just for that Bullshit if it actually happened Jones ass should have already been fired and no doubt in our minds eventually Jones will be fired and it will be very Damn interesting to see if any other schools hire Jones which we have to think his agent Jimmy Sexton has been working the phones on for a few weeks now.

It’s just our humble opinion after watching Butch Jones over the past few years at Tennessee and talking to the good folks in East Tennessee who have seen the Jones era first-hand…

We wouldn’t hire Butch Jones to wash our cars

…even though we acknowledge that Jones is a decent…not good…not great…but decent football coach who is a solid recruiter but is also very average at getting a lot out of the recruits he gets to the school he is coaching.

We haven’t a Damn Clue what’s next for Butch Jones or Tennessee Football but it’s going to be a Damn interesting hire to coach the Vols next and UT AD John Currie better Damn get this hire right because there will be no second chance if he messes this up and it will be a Total Disaster if we are right back in this same spot in a couple of years with the Vols coach’s ass back on the Hot Seat!

3. Mike Riley, Nebraska – Mike Riley is a nice man…Blah..Blah..Blah..but Mike Riley is also an Average Football Coach who has an overall college record of..

112 – 96 (.538)

….at Oregon State and Nebraska and still to this very moment we cannot for the life of us why there was ANYONE on Earth that believed Mike Riley was the right coach to replace Bo Pelini in Lincoln!

Hell…if the AD of Nebraska had come to us as President of the school and said he was going to hire Mike Riley as the head coach of the Nebraska Cornhuskers we would have told him…

“Not only are you not hiring Mike Riley to be the next head coach at Nebraska but your ass is now fired because you are clearly a Damn Moron Son!”

Now…if Mike Riley called Coaches Hot Seat tonight and told us he really needed “X” done that did not involve taking his ass off the Hot Seat…

We would do it as fast as humanly possible

….because Riley is the kind of guy if you were really in trouble a person you would go to because Mike is going to the best of his ability help you and get your ass on the down the road into a better place. In the end being a good human being is a Helluva lot more important than being a winning football coach but then Nebraska has had some Helluva Great Human Beings…

Bob Devaney
Tom Osborne

…who won a Helluva lot of football games and we have no doubt if the folks in Lincoln put their minds to it they will find another Great Football Coach + Helluva Human Being to lead their football team again soon.

Our opinion on what is going to happen at Nebraska after Mike Riley is…

Scott Frost will or already has gotten around a $6M a year + 5 years offer from Nebraska which if Frost turns down will lead the folks in Lincoln to offering their head coaching job to current Wyoming head coach Craig Bohl who played and coached for Tom Osborne at Nebraska and is a Helluva Football Coach winning THREE straight FCS National Titles at North Dakota State.

If we had to guess today it would be that Scott Frost takes the Florida head coaching job and Craig Bohl is hired at Nebraska and both schools will have made a Helluva upgrade on the football coaching front!

4. David Beaty, Kansas – With the Kansas home loss to Baylor on Saturday David Beaty’s records in THREE season as the head coach at KU now stand at…

Overall: 3 – 30

Big 12: 1 – 23

…and the 1 – 8 Jayhawks still have to play…

At Texas
At Oklahoma State

Got 1 – 11 KU?

Is Kansas Football any better today than it was when David Beaty took over in 2015?

No…in could be argued that KU Football is worse today because in Two-And-A-Half seasons coaching Kansas Chubby Charlie Weis won…

6 Football Games

…and more than likely David Beaty is going to win…

3 Football Games

…in 3 FULL years on the job!

Here’s a Pro Tip for the folks at the University of Kansas:


Geez…we actually had to write the above line out! What a time to be alive!

5. Bret Bielema, Arkansas

Really Bret Bielema?

39 – 38 win over Coastal Carolina Son?

Here’s who Coastal Carolina had lost to in 2017 before playing Arkansas:

Texas State
Appalachian State
Arkansas State
Georgia State
La. Monroe
Western Illinois

Arkansas State beat Coastal Carolina by the score of…

51 – 17

…on October 14 of THIS YEAR and it took a Damn Miracle for Bielema’s Hogs to beat the Chanticleers…what the Hell is a Chanticleer anyway….and this is Bielema’s FIFTH year on the job at Arkansas in the NINTH Damn game of the 2017 season!

Call the Hogs alright…Call the Damn Hogs to Haul Bret Bielema’s ass out of Arkansas and back north of the Mason-Dixon line…and take AD Jeff Long with him…because a few more weeks of this Horseshit and the Arkansas Football program is going to cease to exist!

Let’s check Bret Bielema’s records now after that BIG win over the Chanticleers!

Overall: 29 – 31

SEC: 11 – 26

Oh…4 – 5 Arkansas still has to play this season games against…

Mississippi State

Please…someone in Arkansas…for the Love of God and the Pillsbury Dough Boy…put a fork in Bielema…he’s done folks!

Ditto for AD Jeff Long = Fork!

6. Kliff Kingsbury, Texas Tech – With the overtime loss to a mediocre Kansas State team on their home field Kliff Kingsbury and Texas Tech are 4 – 5 on the season and it seems the folks in Lubbock have had their fill of the Kingsbury-era:

Texas Tech, Kingsbury face reckoning after stunning loss, Don Williams, Lubbock Avalanche-Journal

Shaken Confidence: Mediocre Kingsbury era should end with loss to Kansas State, Nicholas Talbot, Lubbock Avalanche-Journal

Who can blame the fans of Texas Tech Football when Kingsbury is sitting on records of…

Overall: 28 – 31

Big 12: 14 – 29

…which is Below Damn Average for what we would expect of ANY head football coach at Tech and thus it seems with these games left to be played…

At Texas

…the Kingsbury era is effectively over already and for God’s and the Pillsbury Dough Boy’s sake….someone in West Texas….put a fork in Kliff…he’s done!

Word is that Kliff Kingsbury has a $6 million dollar buyout for no Damn logical reason which just makes perfect Damn sense in this…

Age of the Damn Idiots in AD Positions Everywhere One Looks!

7. Lovie Smith, Illinois – Last week we asked everyone at Coaches Hot Seat the following question:

“If you were the AD at Illinois a couple of years ago and you were asked to draw up a list of 100 coaches to be the next head football coach of the Illini would Lovie Smith have been on the list?”

NO ONE here at Coaches Hot Seat said that Lovie Smith would have been on their list of 100 coaches to be the next head football coach of the Illini a couple of years ago and yet…

Lovie Smith is the head coach of the Illini Football team

..and Smith after the loss to Purdue on Saturday is sitting on records of…

Overall: 5 – 16

Big Ten: 2 – 13

…and the 2 – 7 Illini still have to play this season games against:

At Ohio State

Please…someone….anyone…why is Lovie Smith the head coach at Illinois?

8. Jim Mora, UCLA – Evidently when you are on a four game losing streak one of the best things that can happen to you is see the UCLA Bruins on the schedule next and luckily for the 4 losses in a row Utah Utes they did get to play UCLA on Friday night and the score of that game was…

Utah – 48
UCLA – 17

With that loss to Utah Jim Mora’s Bruins are now 4 – 5 on the season with still games to be played against…

Arizona State

….and from where we sit that looks like a another losing record for the Bruins in 2017 and for Jim Mora that would be TWO straight losing seasons in Westwood and in Mora’s last 25 games the Bruins are now…

9 – 16

…which is a winning percentage of…


….but then this is UCLA we are talking about here so..

We Are Average As Hell and Proud Of It!

What went wrong for Jim Mora at UCLA?

There’s a lot we could write in this spot to answer that question but in our humble opinion the Bruins have had plenty of talent to compete and even win the Pac-12 the last SIX seasons under Mora but in the end having to work and play for a…

Pompous Arrogant Ass

…like Jim Mora was just too much for the UCLA Football program to overcome. Some schools are so strong and some football coaches are so good they can overcome being a…

Pompous Arrogant Ass

…and win a Helluva lot of football games but that’s not going to happen at UCLA and certainly not UCLA under Jim Mora who had made a lot of unforced errors on and off the football field in the last SIX years that will ultimately lead to his firing in Westwood either this year or next.

9. Larry Fedora, North Carolina – The best news for Larry Fedora and North Carolina this past week was that they had a bye so they couldn’t…

Get Their Asses Whipped on the Field

…which no doubt will happen a couple more times this season with the 1 – 8 Tar Heels still having to play games against…

At Pitt
Western Carolina
At NC State

Considering the University of North Carolina and North Carolina Athletics just got away with….

Decades of Massive Academic Fraud

….let all good folks hope and pray that…

North Carolina Football is Totally Destroyed in the Coming Years

….to make up for the NCAA’s lack of punishment for what is in our opinion…

The Most Corrupt Collegiate Athletic Department in the History of Collegiate Athletics in America!

10. Kalani Sitake, BYU – With the loss to Fresno State on Saturday night BYU’s record on the season now stands at 2 – 8 and head coach Kalani Sitake’s record in TWO seasons on the job is…

Overall: 11 – 12

….which at a place like BYU is nothing short of a…

Total Damn Disaster

…and the Cougars still have to play games against…

At Hawaii

…which are all 3 very losable football games!

Maybe Kalani Sitake can get things turned around at BYU after this disastrous to date 2017 season…and maybe he cannot…but either way one has to wonder how long BYU will stick with Sitake who had no head coaching experience when he took over the BYU job which has seen the Cougars take a major step backwards in Year 2 which is always a very troubling thing for head coaches since few head coaches last long-term when they go backwards in Year 2 from Year 1 and in Year 1 BYU posted a record of…

9 – 4

16 CFB Head Coaches Facing MUST WIN Games in Week 10 Whose Coaches + Teams Need To Take It To the Limit!

16 CFB Head Coaches Facing MUST WIN Games in 2017 Who’s Coaches + Teams Need To Take It To the Limit in Week 10!

Thanks Randy!

Jim Mora, UCLA vs. Utah – It’s bad enough that Jim Mora is 9 – 15 in his last 24 games coaching the UCLA Bruins but now Jim is fighting ESPN commentator and former Washington Husky QB Brock Huard who made some accurate comments about Pretty Boy Bruin QB Josh Rosen and here comes a game at Utah…which is having a Helluva lot of problems itself….for the 4 – 4 Bruins who may not get to a .500+ season and a bowl game for the second straight year.

How many games will UCLA win out of its last 4 games?

At Utah
Arizona State

Our guess 2 games which means the Bruins might just get their coveted 6 wins in 2017 and when you get 6 wins at UCLA which is…

Average As Hell

…at most places BUT you are Golden in Westwood because after this is…

UCLA we are talking about here = Average As Hell and Proud of It!

Gus Malzahn, Auburn vs. Texas A&M – This is very simple for Gus Malzahn on Saturday against Texas A&M:

Gus Malzahn and his Auburn Tigers cannot lose this game because with these games left to be played…

At Texas A&M
La. Monroe

….a loss in this spot with the Dawgs and Bama still on the docket and that looks a Helluva lot like…

7 – 5

….to us for Auburn in 2017 and we have been told by someone on The Plains we trust that…

“Anything less than 9 wins and Gus Malzahn is DONE at Auburn and one of those 9 wins better Damn be over Georgia or Alabama!”

Kevin Sumlin, Texas A&M vs. Auburn – Not only can Gus Malzahn not afford to lose the games to the Aggies on the Saturday Kevin Sumlin and his A&M team just flat-out…

CANNOT Lose to Auburn!

We have had the feeling for awhile now the that money folks in and around Texas A&M Athletics have had their eye on one particular coach to replace Kevin Sumlin if Sumlin didn’t…

“Meet Expectations”

…in 2017 and from where we sit “Meet Expectations” is…

9+ Wins

…and the Aggies now at 5 – 3 on the year still have 4 games against…

New Mexico
At Ole Miss

…and since A&M would have to win out the rest of their games to get to 9 wins it doesn’t take Sherlock Holmes to understand that a loss to Auburn on Saturday and the Kevin Sumlin era in College Station will end shortly after the Aggies play LSU in Baton Rouge on Saturday, November 25.

Don’t Lose to Auburn Son!

Barry Odom, Missouri vs. Florida – Mizzou head coach Barry Odom has had some luck go his way the last couple of weeks with that luck primarily being that the Tigers got to play doormats…

Idaho and UConn

…in the middle of the 2017 college football season which raised Mizzou’s record to…

3 – 5

…on the year and Odom got some more luck this past week when now former Florida head coach Jim McElwain went running like a Damn Coward from the Gators head coaching job…in our opinion Jimmy…which leaves Florida with Randy Shannon as the interim-head coach which may end up being bad luck for Odom and the Tigers since Shannon might actually have the Florida football team ready to play on Saturday!

With these games left on the schedule for Mizzou…

At Vanderbilt
At Arkansas

…we have been told by a bird that if Odom win less than 2 of the remaining 4 games there’s a better than 50 – 50 chance his ass gets run out of Columbia in late November.

No…don’t lose to the Florida Gators on Saturday Barry Odom…Son!

Lovie Smith, Illinois vs. Purdue – With the Illini’s loss to Wisconsin last week that drops Lovie Smith’s record at Illinois now to…

Overall: 5 – 15

Big Ten: 2 – 12

…and the Illini are 2 – 6 on the 2017 with these games left to be played:

At Purdue
Ohio State

Hell….if Illinois doesn’t beat Purdue on Saturday the Illini will not win another game in 2017 and finish at 2 – 10 and the Lovie Smith era at Illinois will then be nothing short of a…

Complete and Total Disaster!

Don’t lose to Purdue Lovie!

Derek Mason, Vanderbilt vs. Western Kentucky – It seems like it was only yesterday that Vanderbilt was 3 – 0 and playing Alabama in Nashville on CBS Sports but after the Tide whipped the Commodores by the score of…

59 – 0

….Vandy has now lost 5 straight football games to be 3 – 5 on the year with a CRITICAL game on Saturday against Western Kentucky that Vanderbilt head coach Derek Mason can just flat-out..



At Tennessee

…to finish the year for Vandy after Western Kentucky as loss in this spot and there’s little chance that the Commodores will be returning to a bowl game this season and for Damn sure if that doesn’t happen Derek Mason’s ass…

Will Be on a Roaring Hot Seat!

David Beaty, Kansas vs. Baylor – Just look at these Win/Loss numbers for Kansas head coach David Beaty in 3 seasons at Kansas:

Overall: 3 – 29

Big 12: 1 – 22

Kansas Football is now 1 – 7 on the 2017 season and have left to play in 2017…

At Texas
At Oklahoma State

…and if the Jayhawks lose to a winless Baylor team on Saturday at home they will finish this year at….

1 – 11

….and No One In Kansas or Across College Football Will Give A Damn!

What a Damn Shame….but then when you hire coaches that are clearly NOT qualified to be the head coach of a school in the Big 12 what else would one expect to happen?

What a Crying and Disgraceful Damn Shame Kansas Football is today!

Matt Rhule, Baylor vs. Kansas – Maybe the Baptists that run Baylor University will let the football program run wild for years will allow the current head coach Matt Rhule to win very few games and also get his ass kissed…like they kissed Art Briles Precious Ass for years….but we here at Coaches Hot Seat will sure the Hell not do that since we were raised by Americans and when your ass is…

0 – 8

…on the season your ass is on the Hot Seat!

Baylor is now 0 – 8 in the first year under Matt Rhule and the Bears got their asses whipped last week by Texas by the score of 38 – 7 and we are getting a whiff of…

A Team Totally Quitting

…and if Baylor loses to a Totally Damn Hapless Kansas team on Saturday it will be confirmed…

The Bears Have QUIT on their head coach Matt Rhule!

Let’s all see if the Bears Totally QUIT on Saturday as we expect them to do and lose to Kansas!

Kliff Kingsbury, Texas Tech vs. Kansas State – We never thought Kliff Kingsbury would win big as the head coach at Texas Tech but we did think he would have .500+ records by his SIXTH year on the job but right now Kingsbury is sitting on Win/Loss records of…

Overall: 28 – 30

Big 12: 14 – 28

….which we would label as…

Below Damn Average

….and we don’t know many head coaches at Power 5 Conference Schools that can survive for long being…

Below Damn Average!

Texas Tech at 4 – 4 on the season has left to play in 2017….

Kansas State
At Texas

…and anything less than 2 more wins in the last 4 games and the Kingsbury era at Texas Tech will come to an end before December 1 arrives on the calendar and even if Kingsbury goes 6 – 6 in 2017 that will still be…

Below Damn Average

…for Texas Tech Football!

Jimbo Fisher, Florida State vs. Syracuse – A few years ago someone that has known Jimbo Fisher for a couple of decades now told us about Jimbo….

“Forget LSU…if Jimbo Fisher ever leaves Florida State it will be for Auburn.”

The above makes sense considering Jimbo coached at Auburn under Terry Bowden but would Auburn want Jimbo Fisher now who has a football team in a Total and Complete Meltdown in 2017 with a 2 – 5 record with still a few tough games left on the board against…

At Clemson
Delaware State
At Florida

Hell…if FSU loses to Syracuse on Saturday they will more than likely end up with only 3 wins on the board in 2017 and this is a team that coming into this season had won under Fisher…

61 of their last 70 games!

What’s gone wrong for FSU in 2017 besides losing their starting QB against Alabama in the opening game of the season?

Try some Very Average Football after the Alabama game thru the Duke game and then some Disgraceful Football the last two weeks against Louisville and Boston College which could turn into a…

FSU Team Totally Quitting on the year if they lose to Syracuse on Saturday!

Don’t let your 2017 Florida State football team QUIT Jimbo…not if you are planning on winning a Damn thing in 2018 Son!

Mark Stoops, Kentucky vs. Ole Miss – Mark Stoops has been cruising along winning a lot of close games at Kentucky in 2017 and the Cats are 6 – 2 on the year but they still have games against…

Ole Miss
At Vanderbilt
At Georgia

…and a loss to Ole Miss on Saturday with 3 more losable games still left on the schedule and Stoops might just wake-up on Monday morning with his ass back on the Hot Seat so Mark Stoops…

Don’t Lose to Ole Miss Son!

Luke Fickell, Cincinnati vs. Tulane – Cincinnati is paying head coach Luke Fickell a Helluva lot of money….

$1.9 Million Dollars A Year

…with a current buyout of…

$9.1 Million Dollars

…which is AMAZING when one considers that Fickell did very little as interim head coach at Ohio State in 2011 and now Fickell is 2 – 6 in his first season with the Bearcats and they still have to play in 2017….

At Tulane
At East Carolina

….and if Cincinnati did lose in New Orleans to Tulane on Saturday Fickell is going to find his ass on a…

Roaring Hot Seat

…of EPIC proportions come Monday morning!

Don’t lose to Tulane Son!

Bret Bielema, Arkansas vs. Coastal Carolina – We cannot imagine Arkansas losing to a Below Average Coastal Carolina football team that is without its head coach Joe Moglia in 2017 so all we have to say about this is…

Don’t Lose To Coastal Carolina Bielema

…especially with these games left to end the season after CC for the 3 – 5 Hogs:

Mississippi State

Will Arkansas even get to 6 wins in his FIFTH year on the job when Any Random Stumble Bum could easily win 6+ games in his FIFTH year coaching the Hogs?

Who knows and there’s the problem with Arkansas Football today and it’s our opinion that there are people working for the University of Arkansas right now that…

Burn Down the Entire State of Arkansas just to avoid having to admit they are WRONG!

Yes…there are Pompous Arrogant Asses and then there are folks like Arkansas AD Jeff Long who in our opinion believes that he spun up the Universe and everyone should get down on their knees and kiss his…

NEVER worked a day in his life in the Real World Precious Ass!

Most…no make that EVERY…company in America if you have hired…

Bobby Petrino – Damn Disaster
John L. Smith – Damn Disaster
Bret Bielema – Damn Disaster

…you are ass would have been fired long ago but then Jeff Long works for the University of Arkansas where…

We Are A Total Damn Disaster and Proud Of It!

Butch Jones, Tennessee vs. Southern Miss – The Tennessee Vols are…

3 – 5 Overall

0 – 5 in SEC

…in 2017 and we are not quite sure why Butch Jones is still employed in Knoxville considering his records now stand at…

Overall: 33 – 26

SEC: 14 – 23

….which is certainly You Ass Should Be Fired Worth at a place like Tennessee and we are guessing that Jones and Vols AD John Currie are just playing out some kind of crazy string that no one with a working brain can possibly understand over these last four games…

Southern Miss
At Missouri

Memo to Tennessee AD John Currie: Don’t mess up this head coaching hire Son or your athletic director career will be over before you turn 50 Son!

Jim Harbaugh, Michigan vs. Minnesota – Jim Harbaugh is now coaching in a Knife’s Edge at Michigan where one bad loss could send Jimmy and Blue spiraling out-of-control and a loss to a Very Average Minnesota team at home is the kind of bad loss that could blow the whole Damn thing up in Ann Arbor!

Now at 6 – 2 on the year and still having to play these games…

At Maryland
At Wisconsin
Ohio State

…that looks like a record of 8 – 4 for Jim in his THIRD year on the job which is…

Average As Hell

….at Michigan Jimmy!

Don’t lose to Minnesota Son!

Todd Graham, Arizona State vs. Colorado – Since the end of the 2014 season Todd Graham is now sitting on a combined record over the past THREE seasons of…

15 – 18

…and the now 4 – 4 Sun Devils better Damn find at least 3 more wins for their head coach or Todd Graham is going to be out of a job come December.

With these games left to be played…

At Oregon State

….and having to win 3 of their last 4 games do you think beating Colorado is a MUST?

You bet your ass it is!

Kalani Sitake, BYU vs. Fresno State – BYU got their MUST WIN over Hapless San Jose State last week and now the 2 – 7 Cougars have games left against…

At Fresno State
At Hawaii

….and if head coach Kalani Sitake has any plans on getting to a .500+ record in 2018 or even being the head coach at BYU in 2018 he better Damn have his team playing hard down the stretch in their last 4 games against teams that even an AVERAGE BYU Football team would have a decent chance of sweeping….the 2017 BYU team…might Damn lose all 4 games left on the docket!

1. Butch Jones, Tennessee – Since beating Georgia on a last second Hail-Mary play on October 1, 2016 last season which left the Vols at 5 – 0 and on top of the SEC East Division Butch Jones Tennessee football team has posted a record of…

7 – 9

…in the last 16 games and the Vols could easily be 1 – 7 in 2017 after razor thin wins over Georgia Tech and UMass this year.

A 7 – 9 record at almost all schools in the SEC will quickly put your ass on the Hot Seat and headed for a sure-fire firing but these are interesting times at Tennessee where it seems that Butch Jones is going to both be forced to walk the plank and then pushed overboard by the UT Administration with a long pole just as he reaches the end of the board!

With games left against…

Southern Miss
At Missouri

…for the 3 – 5 Vols there is a decent chance that Tennessee will have a losing record in Jones FIFTH season on the job and that’s unacceptable at Vanderbilt so for Damn sure it’s unacceptable in Knoxville!

As all college football fans saw this past weekend the difference between Winning and Losing is many times is very small and if there is one thing we would point to that has been the difference between Tennessee losing so many close games under Butch Jones it has been Jones unique ability to cast doubt in Vols players minds if Jones knows what the Hell is doing or not, often by Jones own comments in public, and there is nothing that weakens a team more than one or more of the team members having any doubt all about their leader.

In many ways Butch Jones is a terrific case book example of how a coach SHOULD NOT handle the media and certainly a college head football coach, if he knows what the Hell he is doing, knows how to properly handle the media which just like with football players requires many different ways to handle different members of the news media. The number one rule of a public official such as a head football coach at a high profile school like Tennessee is…

Don’t Shoot Yourself in the Ass

…and Butch Jones has shot himself in the ass so much the last five years by saying so many Damn stupid things and having such an almost paranoid view of the news media, especially the news media in Knoxville, as if they were out to get him it was inevitable that Butch would work himself to his current spot which is…

A Roaring Fire Under His Ass

….and 97% chance or better that Jones will either be coaching at another school in 2018 or be out of coaching all-together!

2. David Beaty, Kansas – It’s as obvious that the wind blows in the state of Kansas that David Beaty should have never been hired as the head football coach at Kansas nor in our opinion had David Beaty ever done anything in his coaching career up to when he was hired at KU to have EARNED the right to be the head coach of a Big 12 school but then now….Kansas also hired Charlie Weis who we wouldn’t hire to shovel shit so in some ways David Beaty was a step-up from Chubby Charlie!

With the loss to Kansas State on Saturday David Beaty’s records at Kansas now stand at…

Overall: 3 – 29

Big 12: 1 – 22

…and the Jayhawks still have to play this season games against:

At Texas
At Oklahoma State

Best Case Scenario Kansas beats Baylor at home on Saturday and then loses its last three games to finish at…

2 – 10

…in David Beaty’s THIRD year on the job and if that’s acceptable in Lawrence then those folks are beyond help and need to be committed to the nearest insane asylum!

3. Lovie Smith, Illinois – With all the mediocre to bad head coaches in the NFL there might be an opportunity for Illini head football coach Lovie Smith to return to the pro game in the near future because there’s not a chance in Hell that anyone at Coaches Hot Seat thinks that Lovie should be coaching college football and Smith’s records at Illinois of…

Overall: 5 – 15

Big Ten: 2 – 12

….prove that as do the Illinois recruiting classes which according to in 2017 was…


…behind Duke, Oregon State, Iowa State, and Rutgers and the Illinois current recruiting class in 2018 which according to is ranked…


…behind Syracuse, Wake Forest, Kansas, UCF, Navy, Army, Western Kentucky, Rutgers, Iowa State….well you get the idea which is in homage to Larry David…..


2 – 6 Illinois still has to play in 2017….

At Purdue
At Ohio State

…which to use looks like 3 or even 4 more losses which would be a record of 3 – 9 or 2 – 10 which is following a record of 3 – 9 last season!

Lovie Smith had the respectful record of…

81 – 63 (.563)

…in coaching the Chicago Bears for 9 seasons which included one trip to a Super Bowl and three trips to the Playoffs and if we were Lovie Smith we would have our agent talking to NFL clubs about potential head coaching job opportunities because from where we sit this college gig is going to end one way and one way only…

Lovie Smith getting his ass fired!

4. Kliff Kingsbury, Texas Tech – For someone making $3.5 million dollars plus a year Kliff Kingsbury isn’t exactly lighting any fires in West Texas putting up records of…

Overall: 28 – 30

Big 12: 14 – 28

… FIVE seasons at Texas Tech and in fact instead of lighting fires Kingsbury has been a bucket of cold water for the Red Raiders who again are fighting just to get to a .500 record in 2017.

Now at 4 – 4 on the season after the loss to Oklahoma Kingsbury and his Texas Tech football team still have to play games against…

Kansas State
At Texas

…and one has to think that even at Texas Tech when you are…

Average As Hell

….your ass will eventually get fired….right?


Just by comparison the previous two head coaches at Texas Tech, Mike Leach and Tommy Tuberville posted a combined record in Big 12 play of….

56 – 50 (.528)

….which means Kingsbury took over a pretty good football program in Lubbock and Kliff has posted a winning percentage in Big 12 play of…


….which is nothing short of a Total Freaking Disaster for Texas Tech Football!

5. Bret Bielema, Arkansas – It’s not an admirable thing that in his 59 th game as the head coach at Arkansas….

Which was a MAJOR football program in the SEC when Bielema took it over

….that you have to come storming back to barely beat an Ole Miss football that had its head coach run out of town before the season and even with that win Arkansas is still sitting on a record of 3 – 5 with still games against:

Coastal Carolina
Mississippi State

This looks to us like a final record of 4 – 8 or 5 – 7 for Arkansas in Bret Bielema’s FIFTH year on the job when by all rights the former head coach of a team in the Big Ten that took his team to three Rose Bowl games should really be hitting his stride and competing for the SEC West and yet….

It took a last second field goal to beat an Ole Miss team had its coach get run and will most certainly have a losing season in 2017!

As one of our Arkansas-alum buddies from Ft. Smith, Arkansas told us on Sunday about the current state of Arkansas Football:

“There are some folks up in Fayetteville that would rather burn down the entire football program and university than admit they were wrong.”

Amen to that brother…Amen to that!

6. Jim Mora, UCLA – Just how bad have things gotten at UCLA after the Bruins loss to Washington on Saturday?

In UCLA’s last 24 games under Jim Mora the Bruins have posted a record of…

9 – 15

…and UCLA still has to play in 2017 games against…

At Utah
Arizona State

…which at best we see the 4 – 4 Bruins splitting which would be a .500 record but is a .500 record in your SIXTH year on the job acceptable at UCLA

Well actually now…we are talking about UCLA Football here where .500 records will keep your ass employed for a Helluva long time because in case you didn’t know it…

UCLA = Average As Hell and Proud Of It!

7. Mike Riley, Nebraska – How bad has the football gotten at Nebraska?

The NEBRASKA CORNHUSKERS needed a last minute touchdown to beat PURDUE on Saturday and fans of Nebraska Football were actually surprised that the Huskers got the win over a PURDUE team that just lost to RUTGERS!

Yes…that’s the world we live in today where they throw a party in Nebraska when they beat Purdue in the last minute and now the 4 – 4…Yep…4 and Freaking 4 Cornhuskers get to go play games against..

At Minnesota
At Penn State

….and if Nebraska plays its BEST football they will get to 6 wins in 2017!


With that Nebraska win over PURDUE Mike Riley’s record in Lincoln now stand at…

Overall: 19 – 15

Big Ten: 12 – 10

….which with 34 games on the books puts Mike Riley’s overall winning percentage at Nebraska is…


…and former and fired Nebraska head coach Bill Callahan…how in the Hell did Bill Callahan get hired at Nebraska is still a shocker to the core…had a winning percentage after 34 games of…


Oh…just for kicks Bo Pelini’s winning percentage after 34 games at Nebraska was…


Yep…if the folks in the Great State of Nebraska are thrilled about beating PURDUE in the last minute then we congratulate you because you are now just like UCLA Football…

Average As Hell and Proud Of It!

8. Kevin Sumlin, Texas A&M – One really has to wonder how Kevin Sumlin could allow a football team like Mississippi State that got its ass whipped by Georgia and Auburn on the road to come into Kyle Field and whip the Hell out of his Aggies by the score of 35 – 14 when Sumlin knew his ass would be on the line if A&M lost to the Bulldogs by just one point…instead the Aggies just flat-out…

Got Their Asses Whipped

…by the Bulldogs which makes us really wonder:

Just what in the Hell is Kevin Sumlin doing to earn that $5 Million Dollars A Year because for Damn sure he didn’t seem to bother to get his team ready to play a home game against Mississippi State!

You are making $5 Million Dollars A Year Sumlin…is it too Damn much for fans of Texas A&M Football to expect you to…

Have Your Damn Team Ready To Play Football?

Kevin Sumlin now has a record at Kyle Field against Power 5 schools of..

9 – 13

….which is a stadium where Texas A&M should next to NEVER lose a football game to any team not named Alabama is something that is impossible for Sumlin nor anyone else to explain and now the 5 – 3 Aggies have to finish the season against…

New Mexico
At Ole Miss

Talk about a game that the outcome of will more than likely decide the future status of the two coaches this coming Saturday’s game of Auburn at Texas A&M is…

Losing Coach Is Going To Get His Ass Fired For Sure

…which should make for great TV viewing but which no doubt will be miserable for both Hot Seat coaches Gus Malzahn and Kevin Sumlin who with a loss will put their ass in a totally untenable situation that can only be avoided by doing one thing…

Winning the Damn Football Game!

Memo to Kevin Sumlin: This time Son how about getting your Texas A&M Football team ready to play against Auburn! Is that really too much to ask since after your ass is making…

$5 Million Dollars A Year?

Geez some of these coaches are getting away with Bullshit + Mediocrity that wouldn’t be tolerated in ANY company in America with workers making $40,000 a year!

9. Larry Fedora, North Carolina – Yes…there is a GOD and that GOD has evidently decided that since the NCAA doesn’t give a Damn that the..

University of North Carolina

…wouldn’t bother to monitor the academic activities of their student athletes….i.e…UNC athletes were involved in…

Massive Academic Fraud

….that then North Carolina Football should totally crater and that’s exactly what has happened to the now 1 – 8 Tar Heels who will hopefully go straight into the bowels of Hell and be…

Totally Destroyed

…before all is said and done and let’s hope that UNC will get its ass whipped in their last three games against..

At Pitt
Western Carolina
At NC State

Hell…even this North Carolina team will be able to beat Western Carolina but then a record of…

2 – 10

…is a Total Damn Disaster and it couldn’t happen to an athletic department at North Carolina that is full of…

Worthless Bastards

…that in our opinion allowed Massive Academic Fraud to go for decades and did NOTHING!

Please God….Destroy North Carolina Football and Basketball because for Damn sure the NCAA wasn’t willing to do their duty while at the same time opening the door for other schools to commit….

Massive Academic Fraud

..and when all that Massive Academic Fraud goes before an NCAA Committee the schools will just say…

“Look at what you let North Carolina get away with!”

Go To Hell North Carolina and the NCAA too for that matter!

10. Todd Graham, Arizona State – Todd Graham just wadded up and tossed into the trash those two nice wins over Washington and Utah with ASU’s disastrous performance against USC on Saturday night and now the 4 – 4 Sun Devils will have to play some great football down the stretch to save their head coach’s job who needs 7+ wins to hang onto his job with games left against…

At Oregon State

Since we haven’t a clue which Arizona State team will show up to play in the above last four games we haven’t a clue what the Sun Devils will finish at this season but we would recommend this to Todd Graham…

Win 3 of your last 4 games Son or it’s….

…for you Tempe!
