Alex, I’ll take “it’s only a matter of time” for $200.

Seems to me the real question here isn’t “when”, though.  It’s “where”.

    As long as Greg Sankey is Commissioner in the SEC, the answer is, “Anywhere but the SEC.”

  2. It seems like only a matter of time before he turns up either at South Carolina or Auburn, right?

    Especially Auburn. It would fit his recruiting style.

      I don’t know. His success at Ole Miss kind of tracked the way Spurrier won at SC: mediocre average talent and recruiting, but taking full advantage of a few key super high talent players to win big. Seems like he could pull that off at SC easier than at Auburn and meet the locals’ realistic expectations.

      Auburn thinks “new coach = top 5 recruiting”. But he’s a retread who won’t carry nearly the same recruiting cachet as some “new” guy who hasn’t been on that big stage before. He’d be good at Auburn but they will expect to contend for a national title year 2, and I don’t think recruits view him like that.

      SC wants a title but doesn’t view it as their god given right. They’ll (and the national media/recruits) will be far more impressed by incremental success at SC, and then they can build on it. Whereas at Auburn people will view him as a bust unless he wins 9+ games and closes a top 5 class year one. He’ll basically have a one year leash at Auburn.

      But, there’s a far more realistic chance to actually win a title at Auburn so who knows. He may go that way (assuming he had the choice) for that chance even though he’s a lot more likely to flop.

        You’re forgetting that Auburn specializes in crookedness. Freeze is an Awwwshucks match made in heaven for that program and Auburn will find it very beneficial that Freeze got those mere amateur gaffes out of the way at Ole Miss’s expense. Auburn specializes in bagman and burner phone policy &procedure and Freeze won’t even be allowed to screw it up.

        For that very reason, Freeze would 100% be able to get top 5 classes at Auburn.

    Can the conference tell auburn what to do here?

    If they could why didn’t they stand in the way of Pearl?

    You know where. The same place that hired a talented recruiter, top flight x and O floor coach, and completely oleaginous cheater Bruce Pearl to coach hoops. They’re sick of getting their ass beat by Alabama, LSU, and UGA. Freeze appears to be a shortcut to solving their problems, and the omerta culture there protects cheaters (Dye, Cam, Pearl, to name a few) like a force field.

    We all know where. What’s a little more dirt on the Plains. Freeze is at the right place. Maybe he learned some new tricks from JR. Falwell or vice versa.

      Of course he’s at the right place. The main Baylor alum heads up JF’s pesudo-Christian pornhub college. Why not Freeze too? Good ol’ Sex Scandal Rehab U.

  6. Auburn. No question.


  7. Corch Irvin Meyers, New USC Corch (2021)

    Again, guys… no one in the SEC will be able to hire Hugh Freeze.

    If Greg Sankey bowed up to tell Nick Saban he couldn’t hire Hugh Freeze, what makes y’all think Auburn can do it?

    Everyone in the conference knows his name is a non-starter, so no one will even approach him.

    Look for Hugh Freeze at another school in another conference desperate to break out of their doldrums. Maybe Arizona. Maybe Oregon State. Maybe even Texas.

    Just not anyone in the SEC.

    Power 5 return for sure…SEC, that’s a negative. Maybe Louisville or someplace like that.

  10. Could Sleeze end up in Tallahassee if they decide to start over again from Norvell? Otherwise, I see him at Texas unless someone convinces Sankey he’s a changed man.

    I don’t see him going somewhere outside the southeast.


    • dawgman3000

      Meh, I think Norvell will be fine in Tally now that he has a qb. He just needs to get more of his players in his system. I could see him at Texas, but offense ain’t the problem in Austin.


      • I was just asking the question. I tried to think about southern schools that would hire him because they want a fix now. I don’t think FSU would blow Norvell out after one season to hire Sleeze.


      • Tony BarnFart

        Texas ? I can’t see that, based on the fact that I’ve heard Texas has more of a righteous country club mentality than Butts Mehre under Mark Richt. But that’s my less than perfectly informed opinion.

    Louisville would take him no questions asked.

    Texas seems about as likely as Alabama to me.

  14. If Sankey puts the kibosh on any SEC programs hiring Freeze, USC seems to be a place of sufficiently loose morals that they might go after him if Urban Meyer takes a pass.


    • RangerRuss

      Freeze the sleaze doesn’t seem to fit the SoCal inflated image they have of themselves. The Southern retread part I mean. He certainly fits in morally there.

  15. We all know it’s Auburn, right? Is this a trick question? Let’s see:

    Head coach on last legs? Check.
    Track record of weird and controversial head coach hires? Check.
    Beat Bama? 3(a) Twice? 3(b) At Ole Miss? Check.
    Desire to substitute one offensive “genius” for another? Check.
    Placate the evangelical base – I mean alumni? Check.

    An SEC West with Saban, the Pirate, Jr., Freeze and Jimbo is a bonus for the rest of us. It makes the East look like a Rotary Club or a men’s Bible study, even with Pruitt In it.
