    I hope they'll return the $20 I sent to the "Help Keep Chizik" initiative...

    Yeah, well for me I sure wish they would have kept him. I thought he and his staff were doing a excellent job. And as far as him and his staff landing on there feet, I will say this... I could careless. They make a heck of a lot of money to coach a sport and they all know what they are getting into and for them not to prepar for a day like this would be extreamly foolish. Somehow I feel like they will be ok. I mean really.

    So can we get to the candidates officially? I mean, the ones they believe in their warped little head...

    Jeff Fisher?
    JimBo Fisher?
    Kirby Smart (I mean, really)?

    They may as well just beg Malzahn to come back, because the chance of them landing a "big fish" is slim IMO.

    Perhaps now VanGorder can follow his true calling

    This. Sit at home for the holidays, spend some cash, start the New Year fresh and rejuvenated. Loved seeing the destruction on the field yesterday, but there is a human side to football.

    While I expect Pat knows a good coach when he sees one. I do find it odd that he would get involved in something like this when he charged with running the Samford program. He doesnt get paid a small sum of money for this job. He should be focused on recruiting or prepping for the playoffs this time of year. If I were his AD I dont think I would allow it.

    I could understand if they were hurting for money... The buyouts they have are fairly substantial... Between Chizik and his top 8 assistants, they get $11 million...

    Yeah, and dont forget reimbursing the new coach's buyout... All signs point to Petrino getting the job. He is the best most affordable coach out there. And his character will fit right in down there.

    I thought oh Mr. Dye said he would return regardless if they went 1-11? Oh well. We all saw this coming. Wonder who is going to coach next year as well as TN and Arky.

    Gene seems like a good guy, and I never had a problem with him. He is going to get a nice buyout so we shouldn't feel too bad for him.
