So Who’s On The Hot Seat?

Posted by Ryne E. Hancock on July 22, 2007

While we won’t have our official college football preview until August 1st, a preview that should be quite a read on this blog, it’s never too early to figure out who is on the hot seat in college football.

And after doing a lot of research with the help of the two college football preview magazines I have here at home, I came up with a short list of coaches that could find themselves out on a limb as far as job security is concerned.

  • Lloyd Carr, Michigan – If Miami can fire a coach who won a national championship during their tenure, certainly Michigan can fire Lloyd Carr, who is 1-5 in his last six games against Ohio State and 1-5 in his last six bowl games. As “Condo” explained to me yesterday, if Carr doesn’t win 10 games this year, changes could come in Ann Arbor.
  • Tommy Bowden, Clemson – The last time Clemson won an ACC championship, George Bush’s daddy was in the White House and Memphis Mayor Willie Herenton was in his first year of his reign of terror over the Bluff City. With a blown chance at winning their first conference championship since 1991 last season, the folks in Clemson are getting restless with Bowden and if he doesn’t produce a championship, or at least contend for one, it’s going to be a long season in Death Valley.
  • Mark Snyder, Marshall – Before Boise State, Marshall was the little engine of college football, producing stars like Chad Pennington, Randy Moss, and Byron Leftwich, as well as having a winning tradition like no other. It has been three years since Marshall last played in a bowl game as members of the Mid-American Conference and Snyder, who is 9-14 in three years at Marshall, desperately needs to get this team to a bowl game and maybe challenge for the C-USA crown.
  • Slyvester Croom, Mississippi State – It doesn’t matter what color the coach is, nor does it matter if the coach coached in South Panola or South Beach, but after three years of underperforming Bulldog teams getting whitewashed 48-0 by LSU and Auburn, the folks in Starkville are beginning to get restless as Croom begins his fourth season in Starkville. Chances are, another 49-0 pounding by LSU against Mississippi State could be Croom’s ticket out of Starkville.
