- Texas A&M is going out of their damn mind, firing Mike Sherman, paying his ~$5M buyout and floating that they’ll pay Kevin Sumlin in the ballpark of $4M, since ASU is going there. Maybe they’ll fit right in in the SEC, after all.
- Paul Petrino is in the running for the UAB job
- Carl Pelini might be taking the FAU job (that link is clickable for the picture alone – the Pelinis look like characters in a scene from a Coen brothers movie)
Honestly, nothing new to truly qualify anybody as “trending up” – giant kudos to Mike Thomas for keeping this thing airtight; we could have the sieve-like athletic departments that they have at ASU and Mizzou
Tim Beckman is promoted from the ranks of “trending down” because of his no-answer answer re: the Illinois opening
Tim Brewster Kirby Wilson
Kevin Sumlin, since he’s going to be starring in his own episode of Duck Tales
Steve Addazio gives me an early Christmas present and removes himself from consideration
