Post by MikeAuburn – The Tigers are 1-5 and 0-4 in the SEC. Chiz has had three top 10 recruiting classes but a lot of those players are in the poky. If they don’t beat Vandy on Saturday the volume will get turned up from the fire Chiz crowd. Auburn is so bad this year they belong in the ACC. Who does Pat Dye hire next? My predictions: Kirby Smart, Al Golden, or maybe Charlie Strong.
Tennessee – The Vols are 3-3 and 0-3 in conference. If Dooley doesn’t get a big win soon he’ll get shown the door. Bama goes to Knoxville Saturday, then the Vols go to Columbia next weekend. Derek better start polishing the resume. Things are improving on Rocky Top, but not fast enough for the Orange Army. Who’s the next fool to take this spot? My Predictions: Fulmer or David Cutcliff.Kentucky – The Wildcats are 1-6 without a conference win. Joker is gone. Of course no one in that state really cares because basketball tips shortly and their favorite slime hit the recruiting trail again last season. Who will get the call here? My predictions: Petrino, Charlie Strong (stealing a coach from Louisville would please many Cats) or Chris Hatcher.
Texas – The Longhorns are 4-2 overall, but only 1-2 in the Big 12. Giving up 63 to Oklahoma didn’t go over well, and Mac Brown is old. They’ve tried changing every job on the staff but one. Texas has money, lots of it. So who do they go after? My predictions: Saban or Chip Kelley – Only a top tier candidate will satisfy them.Georgia Tech – Yuck. They stink very much. The Jackets are 2-4 but there wins are against Virginia and Presbyterian and they are 1-3 in that thing they call a conference. They fired their defensive coordinator mid-season and if this has to be blown up it will be very ugly. Johnson has been recruiting for that option offense for several years. They have option QBs and lineman trained to chop and run block. If they decided to make a change, you can expect them to spend a few years in the wilderness. Who do they go after? My prediction: They won’t make a change because of what I just described. Now if they go winless for the balance of the season, maybe… and they would go after Chris Hatcher.
