    Seriously, I think Cheezy's future may well depend on how we do this season. If we repeat, there could be widespread panic in hooterville. Especially if we take them behind the woodshed again.

    A woodshed job might be enough by itself considering how paranoid those clods are about all things Bama.

    Excellent point. Back in 1992, the same thing happened with Miami. Took them quite a few years to resuscitate themselves.

    It is NOT improbable that State COULD go 10-2. I don't think they will because it's just not done there. But if
    he does then he is going to be in better shape than ever to cash in and name his choice of whatever jobs are
    open.

    (Let me add - this might be the one scenario where LSU would fire Miles - if they could get Mullen after a 10-2 year
    at MSU).
    One of my great friends is a die-hard MSU alum & fan. He said exactly what you said when I asked him in May about his MSU forecast. His precise words: "We could be the worst 7-0 team in the country...and may not win many more after that."

    I'd love for Mullen to go to LSU or UF, as I'm just not convinced that he's all that as a coach. He has beaten the following SEC teams while MSU is supposedly on this massive upswing: Ole Miss (who hasn't? Nutt retired a few years back; he just didn't leave Ole Miss for a couple of years after)...Vandy. [list ends] He runs his mouth a lot & has that cute Franchione-esque thing about not naming their rival. He also has the Barn-esque thing going about the entire season being eval'd on whether they beat said rival. So, the last couple of years have been wildly successful in the eyes of the local Dawg faithful. (not even kidding, nor exaggerating...I've heard this said!)

    Note: Mullen may well prove me wrong & take MSU to another level & start competing with actual good SEC opponents...at that point, I'll be happy that football/coaching prognostication is not how I make my living.

    I want Chizik to stay put.

    I want Miles to stay put. If LSU tanks and they get rid of Miles they will offer the moon to CNS. I don't think he'll leave, but I don't want him even tempted by it.

    I want Mullen to stay where he's at because I think he might could do some damage at LSU or back at Florida.

    Smith for obvious reasons. Chizik will be around another year unless he has a mediocre season and gets smashed by us again or goes like 2-10, 3-9, 4-8.

    I agree with Capstone Tider on this. I said on some thread during the bike/babe incident that au has coveted Petrino since he worked for Tubs. We all know about the night flight to Louisville and that escapade. au will keep Chizik long enough, 2-3 more years until the fallout blows over on Petrino and he will be welcomed back to Lee County like the prodigal son.

    UF will give Muschamp also 2-3 more years and then President Machen will go after Mullen in an attempt to recapture the Meyer
    golden days. If however UT pulls the plug sooner on Dooley one these two coaches could wind up in Knoxville. Timing will be
    every thing for these programs.

    I expect to see Petrino back in coaching sometime in the near future. He's too good a coach for someone not to hire him. I just don't see him wanting to be anywhere near the SEC with the baggage he's carrying.

    I don't see Petrino going to API, but I've been wrong before.

    I find in myself in a conundrum: on one hand I love whipping the university of auburn embarrassingly. OTOH would like to keep cheese man around for a while.

    But reality says that if we keep the beatings going, he will need to dust off his resume'. I agree petrino would be the heir apparent. Not entirely sure that bobby would maintain the mediocrity.

    I agree that if the barn hired petrino then they would be a totally different team then they are now. He will be able to recruit top offensive players and he knows how to coach them up.

    Chizik can't go that quickly. He'd tell.

    Plus, does anyone know if they could afford a Petrino with their current ticket sales? I'm seeing billboards in BHM begging people to pony up.
