That's as inexcusable and any coaching decision you can make. You could argue a coach should be fired for that alone.

That's not risk-averse.

That's just being a goddamned idiot.

Vince Gibson, Tulane.

(Tulane's biggests failures was the failure to hire, notably Lindy Infante and Rich Rod).

Washington’s problem was hiring Mark Emmert. Firing Neuheisel for no reason was a mistake, but not as big as Emmert. Emmert is a swamp creature of the DC sort. At LSU he pandered to the base by hiring Saban to win games, at Washington he pandered to left wing racialists and could care less about tradition or winning football.

Take away the Mark Emmert years (2004-2010) and Washington hasn’t had a losing football season since the mid 1970s

Washington fans I've seen elsewhere really hate Neuheisel. How is Woodward remembered there?

I like Rose Bowl Rick. If he was so hated up here he wouldn’t have a weekly segment on KJR.

I like Woodward too. He was the lone bright spot under Emmert IMO. We would not have accomplished the massive stadium remodel without him. He left the Ath. Dept. in much better shape then what he inherited. If you have a chance to attend an event where he is speaking and answering question, go, it is must attend event.

How about overstaying your welcome that destroyed CFB programs.
I nominate Bobby Bowden and Mack Brown

Over-reactionary program that thought they should go 12-0 every year because they had 3 dominant years in the 90's and thought the Osborne sellout was the norm.


This is a little insincere. From 1969-1997, Nebraska was the most consistent team in college football. During that particular stretch, they finished outside the AP Top 15 just once. Under Solich's reign (1998-2003), they finished outside of the AP Top 15 three times. Did they make a knee jerk reaction? Probably. But keep in mind that they felt just as entitled as Alabama fans do. If you aren't producing at the level you're expected to produce, you're fired. Unfortunately for Nebraska, they have yet to find their Nick Saban or even their Gene Stallings.

Bobby Bowden didn't destroy Florida State. Within four seasons of his departure from Florida State, Jimbo Fisher had won a national championship. They were also one of the first four teams to ever make the College Football Playoff in 2014. Fisher is who killed that program. Not Bobby Bowden.

Then why did Bowden's last two teams struggle to make a bowl?

Terrible take. Although Chan Gailey did not have success against UGA, he did lead them to the ACC Championship Game. Paul Johnson's teams appeared in the ACC Championship Game three times, winning it once. They also had an Orange Bowl victory...

How does he count? The very next coach was close to a BCS bowl game.

It's the next hire that went super bad.
That hire never happened and that football season never existed.

to multiple losing seasons and loser coaches.
Only losing seasons were 2012-14 when He Who Shall Not Be Named destroyed the program and it took a couple years to recover.

Another problem for Southern Miss is that they used to be one of the only "mid-major" D-1A/FBS programs in their area. Now other schools in the region like South Alabama, Middle Tennessee, Troy, Georgia Southern, Georgia State, etc., are all on the same level and grabbing up players who don't make it to SEC schools. Southern Miss used to get more of those players beforehand.

It’s amazing to me that Pinkel had Missouri one game away from a National Championship appearance on two occasions. I know he ‘retired’ but I’m sure the Mizzou faithful would disagree?

Never knew Emmert was not well-liked up there. I suppose if what you said is true, then it makes sense. I always thought Rick was a solid. He did well at CU and Washington. I do remember that meltdown against Texas in the Holiday Bowl though..it was on the Longhorn Network the other day I think

Nebraska always got a Top 5 ranking because they breezed through the old Big8 and only had to beat Oklahoma.

Nebraska in the 80's was terrible in bowl games given their ranking.

You would think they would have 20 National Championships because they were overranked
That's the fallacy that throws off the current generation.

You don't have to run off a string of titles to be considered elite. Nebraska, like Fla State under Bowden, was known for always being up there in the Top 5.
