    All kidding about Auburn tendencies aside, Briles is unhirable and I'd be shocked if they went after Petrino at this point. There's no telling how it would go down though if Gus is fired. You'd most likely have a disjointed group of boosters making the hire and we all know that's a mess.

    Which is why we shouldn’t wait until after the season to fire him. Let’s ****ing get ahead of things.

    To be fair, it should be noted that LSU tried that and hired their interim coach.

    Also, Notre Dame may be on the list.

    Ucla can't compete money wise with tenn and the others listed, but he likes city living and California.

    Excellent. I hope Malzahn is fired soon so you can go ahead and hire Butch.

    They make Tennessee and Butch sound like the decent looking, successful dude who's dating or married to a fat, homely chick. Just a wrong match. It's painful to watch the incongruence. But what do you expect from a hire by Bama Dave.

    They have some money and high end donors, but no where close to the revenue of tenn. Remember they don't own the rose bowl nor do they draw overly well and the PAC 12 payout is like $20 mil less than the sec.. And mora's buyout is like $12 mil

    6.5 is the price of a big time coach. Kelly has won. And made it to the title. He and Gruden are worth that. Personally, I wouldn't hire Stoops. Similar to Barnes to me. Lost the fire.

    If it takes Harbaugh/Myer money to get Kelly or Gruden you do it without reservation.

    He won his conference, the Sugar Bowl, and finished 3rd in the country last season.

    How much fire did he have before?

    Kiffin was the right choice but they screwed themselves with the buyout

    What's the deal with LeSean McCoy accusing Kelly of being a racist?

    What? A box of Krispy Kremes and a coupon book to Target seems like a perfectly good buyout.

    Since 2010, a season after going 8-5:

    6 10+ win season. 73-19 5 BCS/New Year's 6 bowls. 4 conference championships. 4 top 6 finishes. Top 15 classes 6 out of 7, with #16 being the one outlier.

    Definitely lost his fire.

    No wonder he quit. He just wasn't feeling it anymore.
