    I've read a ton of pieces on who's allegedly hot and who's available. I was tempted to post a poll, but the reality is only a few are recognizable, guys like Satterfield from Appalachian State, Frost from UCF, Morris from SMU and Memphis' Norvell, whom we speculated on during the immediate post-Muschamp period.

    The days of the home run hire are long gone. I'm sure someone's going to nominate Stoops with Spurrier as his OC, or vice versa for nostalgia's sake, but let's get real. And I'm going to bop you over the head if you so as much mention Les Miles.

    Would you want to be the guy in charge of ensuring the replacement to Mac was 100% workable?

    I don't envy anyone having to make this choice, but it's part of the reason they hire search committees. I don't follow other teams enough to make an intelligent choice, but one thing is for sure...the next hire is crucial for our program. We're gonna become the Voles with another lousy hire.

    He's not-yet-old enough and still vital enough that I have no doubt if called upon he'd sign up for Rescue #2 to bridge the gap until the right guy was found. SOS thrives on that kind of situation. Having said that, it won't happen.

    Committees are a disaster. Crowdthink will always result in a low risk low reward cheap option.

    We need an AD on a mission, like Mal moore was when he hired Saban or Meatchikin when the wouldnt take no for an answer from Harball.

    Saban's a cash hoar. I'm sure Sas posted it for a laugh, but the more laughable thing is it probably could lure Saban.

    I dont think Kelly ever comes here and I am not sure it would work if he did but at this point we may have to try it.

    I love Charlie, but he's not the guy for a major program. I'd take his as our DC in a heartbeat but not as the HC.

    Not sure who's next, but im wishful mac pulls a Spurrier, takes blame, and quits mid-season. Maybe Steve can head down there and suggest it.

    Well, if you want an offensive splash, there is no bigger hire than Chip Kelly. No one even comes close.

    Charlie Strong would never come back here anyway, that bridge was burned long ago.

    As I posted elsewhere, If SOS was the answer, he'd still be at USCe. The "big" hires (i.e, Stoops, Chucky) are simply more of the same.

    Charlie would bring in the defensive players, a good OC and most importantly he would not put his nose in the offense
