Chris Vannini ($$) gets righteous about the primary effect of nine head coaches being canned by the first week of November:
None of this is about the well-being and the development of student-athletes. It’s about everyone but them. It’s about trying to keep recruits committed and bringing certainty to future recruits. It’s about telling the big-money boosters and regular fans that you’re taking this seriously and you’re Doing Something and they shouldn’t cancel their season tickets or donations. You absolutely, positively, cannot have people think you won’t change.
Because this is all really a business.
Preach it, brother.
It’s all about the early signing period. I’ve always felt that allowing recruiting to drive a hiring/firing decision about a head coach is a bad strategy for an AD. So of course the new signing period has led them to double down.
College football sure is stupid sometimes. Okay, a lot of the time.
