If the Pitt head coaching spot is indeed open, I’d love to see the school hire Junior as its next head coach and have him bring Ed Orgeron along for the ride, if only so we could watch James Franklin’s head explode as he has to deal with the both of them on the recruiting trail.

Forget about sneaking out of Knoxville like a thief in the night. Were I a Vols fan, this is why I’d be pissed at Junior:
What’s all this have to do with Kiffin?
Upon taking the Tennessee job, he sent word to a couple of quarterbacks the Vols had committed under the previous regime that they needed to look elsewhere — and they did.
Their names? Tajh Boyd and Bryce Petty.
As a Georgia fan, though, let me take this opportunity to thank Mike Hamilton again for the fine job he did.
Some pre-weekend nibbles for your reading pleasure:
- Patrick Garbin notes that since 2008, Georgia is 1-8 against the spread after a bye week. Maybe we’d better hope for a big line against Florida.
- If cutting pizza prices works, maybe a similar tactic will be the magic for Dave Brandon’s latest move to deal with displeased students.
- Another day, another NCAA lawsuit.
- Why is everybody pickin’ on poor ol’ Junior?
- Les Miles hasn’t forgotten Herbie’s Michigan prediction.
- Vanderbilt plans to start its fourth different quarterback this week. That’s generally not a recipe for success.
- Dueling lawsuits over when an offensive coordinator isn’t a play caller.
- Are recent suspensions at South Carolina an indication of underlying problems? (Good to hear a question like that asked about some place other than Athens, I might add.)
By all means, help yourselves.
- Jimbo Fisher says he’ll punish Winston “if the facts change”. What, like if there are no more baseball suspensions?
- Stewart Mandel says Georgia still has a chance.
- Cry me a river, asshole.
- Junior makes an appearance in Tennessee politics. Nice punch back, though.
- Richt, from last night’s call in show: “The coaches are REALLY being teachers, they get after ’em, but they’re teaching. Not just yellers and screamers.” Anyone in particular you have in mind there, Coach?
- Bo Pelini wakes up to reality.
- Travis Fain’s latest good idea.
Oh, noes, Kevin Scarbinsky di’int. Oh, yes, indeedy, he went there.
One week shy of one year since USC fired him as head coach at LAX in a nightmarish conclusion to his dream job, is Kiffin starting to make a case to one day succeed Nick Saban?
It’s possible to ask that question without snark or sarcasm, without having everyone in earshot question your sanity.
Actually, it’s not. Unless you’re trolling for hits.
Gee, I wonder why.
- Berry Tramel hints pretty strongly that Big Game Bob cut a deal with Dorial Green-Beckham that the kid would indeed play a season with Oklahoma before going pro. Of course, there’s not really much Stoops could do other than complain if Green-Beckham reneged.
- Cringeworthy comment from Bobby Petrino: “With the experiences I’ve had, I can help young men with the obstacles they are going to be presented with off the field, with the situations that are going to come up; to be able to help them and give them a second chance.”
- Saban’s not above throwing a few players under the bus. Wonder which of them made the call to kick the field goal in the Iron Bowl.
- Bert has his moments.
- Patrick Garbin finds that during the Richt era, Georgia has made a habit of failing to track Phil Steele’s forecasting statistics.
- And John Pennington shows that in the case of defensive points allowed, Georgia followed a general conference trend.
