Yesterday I state that Michigan needs to fire Athletic Director Dave Brandon and start over. I'll stand by that because I don't see any way that their staff is going to improve things before this season is over. Blood is in the water and the sharks are already circling as you can see the reaction to the Coke campaign gone awry by Michigan's athletic department.
I'm calling now what I knew a week ago but didn't want to say: Will Muschamp is going to get fired during or shortly after this season.
It's becoming apparent that Will Muschamp isn't going to make it out of this season as Florida's head coach.
Kansas beat Central Michigan 24-10 this weekend and perhaps Charlie Weis bought himself a little more goodwill with Kansas fans, but should a win like this actually warrant that?
Another obvious choice - Charlie Weis at Kansas. Nobody really gives a damn about KU football, not even Jayhawk fans. After the bloody mess that's been made of their football program since Mark Mangino was fired, can anybody blame them?
Last season's thrashing in Waco was an all-time low for the Iowa State program. What should expectations be when the Bears come to Ames on Saturday?
Paul Rhoads - Iowa State is another potential candidate, but I don't see a lot of screaming from the Cyclone fan base. Plus, Rhoads beat Iowa this season and he's hard to dislike, but sooner or later you have to produce some results. Granted, he's in a bad situation - in a conference where there isn't equal revenue sharing and few resources with which to work.
Tim Beckman - Illinois, hasn't shown much progress. Mike Leach - Washington State, Darrell Hazell - Purdue. Leach has had time to produce results, while Hazell - well, how much does Purdue care about their football program? I haven't even bothered looking at programs like Florida International....
2014 is setting up to be a bloody year for coach firings. One has to wonder how many will be fired before the season ends.

How would I define Clemsoning? I think it’s pretty simple: it’s the act of losing a game to a lesser team that you have no business losing to.
Oh, that's "Clemsoning". When Clemson runs the shittiest fourth down play ever, essentially throwing away the chance at knocking off the #1 team and a conference foe, we must be referring to "Clempsoning". That's where the misunderstanding comes in.

No easy fix coming for Michigan Wolverines' offense - ESPN
The problems with Michigan’s offense are clear. The solutions, for a group that needs to get itself turned around in a hurry if coach Brady Hoke is going to keep his job after the 2014 season, are not.

Breakdown Sports: Coaching Points: Utah vs Michigan, 2014
Here's the thing that spoke most to me: Michigan came out in the 2nd half of a 13-10 game and looked completely flat. That had no spark, no energy, and seemed to be going through the motions. It looked to me like they didn't believe any more. To me, that speaks to where this team is at with respects to this coaching staff. Even in the ND game, to me, it looked like they just got beat, but not that they gave in. This was a different scenario.

After a lively game, Nebraska players and coaches took the time Monday to reflect some of the strategy behind the Miami game.
Maliek Collins I want to start with Ameer Abdullah, because I should start with Ameer Abdullah, but damn, this guy has me excited right now. Here's the essence of my notes with regards to Collins:
Really good breakdown of Nebraska vs Miami.
I give my thoughts on the Nebraska game, highlighting the positives and negatives from Miami's performance on Saturday night. The outcome wasn't what I had hoped for, but my trip to Lincoln was still a great experience.
I've come to the conclusion that I should attend my next Nebraska game wearing our opponent's colors because we seem to treat visitors a helluva lot better than we treat ourselves.
