    Florida's not getting rid of Muschamp (this year).

    Their AD Foley is playing a dangerous game... he could be run out of town with Muschamp if they have another season like this one.

    Muschamp has gotta be one of the most stubborn men I've ever seen... his press conferences are almost always combative. Be really interested to see if he actually allows the UF offense to open up. Trying to play Bama style football with Florida athletes was a dumb idea from the start and I don't believe it was all the offensive coordinator's doing.

    Spot-on.

    Boise State's offenses were very creative under Pease; it made no sense to go the conservative route with athletes far better than what Pease had to work with at Boise State.

    JMO, but I think one of the points Bilas was making was coaches can go from school to school and don't have to sit out a year while student players do.

    I think you're absolutely right. I think it should be harder to get out of these contracts especially before Bowl games

    I really don't see anybody who could do better than Muschamp right now. There isn't an Urban Meyer in Utah type of coach available who is a home run hire.

    This year, unless Saban leaves for Texas is going to be kinda meh. If that happens, I could see Alabama handing over the reins to Kirby Smart. Next year could have some big openings with Nebraska, Florida, and West Virginia possibly.

    That's the general thinking around Gator land to defend Foley, to me it's dead wrong, a bad coach is a bad coach and Muschamp is bad, I'd take any number of guys over him such as Franklin from vandy, Hudspeth from ull, DeRuyter at Fresno, Strong or even Fedrora from unc who a lot of people think will be the guy provided he bounces back next year.
    Go Gators!

    Completely forgot about Charlie Strong. Don't know if he would leave Louisville after turning down jobs last year but with Touchdown Teddy leaving it would be the perfect time to jump ship.

    If that happens, dare I say Bobby Petrino back to Louisville?

    The message boards are lit up with Saban to Texas tonight. Seems to be a lot of smoke.

    When Saban leaves he leaves like a thief in the night - just ask MSU, LSU and Dolphin fans. Saban is still hated in the Miami market for the way he left the Dolphins (emphatically denying he was taking the Bama job until he was on the plane ride out of town). Not that he was a good coach in Miami as he pretty much sucked, but even here in the scam capital of America he was perceived as a complete slime ball. Not an easy thing to accomplish.

    I seem to recall he was pretty well regarded in his brief NFL stint. He took over a Miami team that had fallen flat on it's face the year before and led them to a surprising 9-7 record, though they did follow it up with a disappointing 6-10 year mostly caused by the incorrect assumption that 29 year old Daunte Culpepper hadn't just turned into a total pumpkin overnight.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    The Dolphins had some good seasons before Saban but fell apart the year before he was hired. To be fair his stay was so short he gets an incomplete although from what I remember the 2007 season was a grease fire given expectations and the Culpepper roller coaster. During Saban's stay was the famous Culpepper over Brees decision by the medical staff.

    However he crossed Wayne Huizenga on the way out of Dodage, lying to him on several occassions that he was staying which pretty much makes him persona non grata down here.
