2014 Preseason Coaches Hot Seat Rankings – Hot Seat Coaches #16 – #20 – Laugh Bobby Petrino….Life is Very Damn Short

 

 

16. Paul Petrino, Idaho – In many ways Paul Petrino’s coaching career has been in the shadow of his older brother Bobby which has seen the two go through together some great highs at Louisville and some unimaginable lows with the Atlanta Falcons after Bobby Petrino snuck out of town to Arkansas taking Paul Petrino with him to Fayetteville.

Whatever one thinks of Bobby Petrino there is no doubting that the Petrino brothers know the game of football having been raised by the legendary Carroll College (Helena, Montana) head football coach Bob Petrino Sr. who is a coach we would put-up against almost anyone coaching the game of football in America in 2014.

In 2013 Paul Petrino took on the challenge that is coaching Idaho football and not surprisingly the pitiful Vandals posted a 1 – 11 record with their lone win coming over a Temple team that also had a first-year head coach on the sidelines.

Can Paul Petrino turn things around at Idaho which is easily one of the toughest jobs in major college football?

Your guess is as good as ours but....

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Wednesday, August 20, 2014 - Barbara Jordan

 

 

“But this is the great danger America faces. That we will cease to be one nation and become instead a collection of interest groups: city against suburb, region against region, individual against individual. Each seeking to satisfy private wants.”

And

“Do not call for black power or green power. Call for brain power.”

And

“Education remains the key to both economic and political empowerment.”

And

“For all of its uncertainty, we cannot flee the future.”

And

“I felt somehow for many years that George Washington and Alexander Hamilton just

left me out by mistake. But through the process of amendment, interpretation, and court decision, I have finally been included in “We, the people.”

And

“I never intended to become a run-of-the-mill person.”

And

“If we promise as public officials, we must deliver. If we as public officials propose, we must produce.”

And

“If you’re going to play the game properly, you’d better know every rule.”

And

“Let each person do his or her part. If one citizen is unwilling to participate, all of us are going to suffer. For the American idea, though it is shared by all of us, is realized in each one of us.”

And

“Let us heed the voice of the people and recognize their common sense. If we do not, we not only blaspheme our political heritage, we ignore the common ties that bind all Americans.”

And

“The citizens of America expect more. They deserve and they want more than a recital of problems.”

And

“There is no executive order; there is no law that can require the American people to

form a national community. This we must do as individuals and if we do it as

individuals, there is no President of the United States who can veto that decision.”

And

“There is no obstacle in the path of young people who are poor or members of minority groups that hard work and preparation cannot cure.”

And

“We are a people trying not only to solve the problems of the present: unemployment, inflation… but we are attempting on a larger scale to fulfill the promise of America.”

And

“We call ourselves public servants but I’ll tell you this: we as public servants must set an example for the rest of the nation. It is hypocritical for the public official to admonish and exhort the people to uphold the common good.”

And

“We must exchange the philosophy of excuse – what I am is beyond my control for the philosophy of responsibility.”

And

“What the people want is very simple – they want an America as good as its promise.”

And

“What we have to do is strike a balance between the idea that government should do everything and the idea, the belief, that government ought to do nothing. Strike a balance.”

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Tuesday, August 19, 2014 - Dale Carnegie

 

 

“Develop success from failures. Discouragement and failure are two of the surest

stepping stones to success.”

And

“Do the hard jobs first. The easy jobs will take care of themselves.”

And

“Do the thing you fear to do and keep on doing it… that is the quickest and surest way

ever yet discovered to conquer fear.”

And

“Don’t be afraid to give your best to what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you

conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.”

And

“Fear doesn’t exist anywhere except in the mind.”

And

“Feeling sorry for yourself, and your present condition, is not only a waste of energy but the worst habit you could possibly have.”

And

“First ask yourself: What is the worst that can happen? Then prepare to accept it. Then proceed to improve on the worst.”

“If you can’t sleep, then get up and do something instead of lying there worrying. It’s the worry that gets you, not the lack of sleep.”

And

“It isn’t what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about.”

And

“Men of age object too much, consult too long, adventure too little, repent too soon, and seldom drive business home to the full period, but content themselves with a mediocrity of success.”

And

“One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.”

And

“People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.”

And

“Success is getting what you want. Happiness is wanting what you get.”

And

“Take a chance! All life is a chance. The man who goes farthest is generally the one who

is willing to do and dare.”

And

“The ideas I stand for are not mine. I borrowed them from Socrates. I swiped them from Chesterfield. I stole them from Jesus. And I put them in a book. If you don’t like their rules, whose would you use?”

And

“There are four ways, and only four ways, in which we have contact with the world. We

are evaluated and classified by these four contacts: what we do, how we look, what we

say, and how we say it.”

And

“There is only one way… to get anybody to do anything. And that is by making the other person want to do it.”

And

“Nothing is as real as a dream. The world can change around you, but your dream will not. Responsibilities need not erase it. Duties need not obscure it. Because the dream is within you, no one can take it away.”

And

“People live longer today than they ever have. They live happier lives, have more knowledge, more information. All this is the result of communications technology. How

is any of that bad?”

“Life is what happens when you are making other plans” – Summer at Lake Tahoe – RIP the Great and Troubled Robin Williams – SEC Network Launch = Good Luck SEC Conference! – Pre-Season Coaches Hot Seat Rankings – Top 5 Coaches on the Hot Seat Rankings
 

 

John Lennon once said that…

“Life is what happens when you are making other plans”

…and this Summer several of the original core group of Coaches Hot Seat members were presented with the opportunity to help start a tech company which is something that many of us did several times when we were a lot younger and in the interest of “interrupting plans” we took on that challenge and have had a Helluva time doing it this Summer!

We were told that we would have to re-locate and work temporarily to our old stomping grounds of the San Francisco Bay area and the only requirement that was placed on our temporary employer was best stated by a CHS member during the negotiations:

“We will work like Hell for you for a couple of months, but whatever is going on we are all going to get up and walk-out of the office on Wednesday, August 6 and head to Lake Tahoe.”
