Charlie Strong isn't exactly new to the scene. At least he's won a BCS game. Sumlin's the one that has me scratching my head.

:quote: Sumlin lost 58-0 to Alabama. 1st year qb (post manziel). nobody says anything.
Miles loses in OT to Alabama. 1st year qb (post mettenb). everyone wants to fire him. :quote:

That bama game was a soul crushing loss yes, but I honestly think that more people wanted him fired after the arkansas debacle last week.

That never crossed my mind. I didn't even know James Franklin is black. It struck me because of their newness to the scene, not being as established as the other coaches.

out of the 10

only 5 have national titles

only 3 of those were achieved with the team they currently coach

Because they are black?

some of those stick out as just odd. Penn State, Texas, and TAMU in particular. I can at least understand the rest due to how long they have been there.

None of them deserve this kind of money.

As much as people will complain about this fact. Imagine what fans of Iowa, A&M, and even Michigan State to a certain extent are feeling.
