    15 coaches in 117 Div. 1 programs... we will prob. be over the 10% mark when all is said and done... I wonder how much money all these firings will cost the universities...

    Unfortunately, the number will increase in the next few months, its the world of college football, its a win now and at all costs. If you don't get it done you are gone.

    The success that Utah and Boise State has had will only increase the pressure on traditional powers to get to that BCS bowl or win their conference. Athletic Directors are bowing down to boosters and making changes before a coach can even see his first recruiting class become seniors (ie Notre Dame).....you bring a guy in and then don't have the patience to give him a chance to build his program.....thats life in big time college football.

    I would imagine if Coach Tressel hadn't gone 14-0 with a national championship in 2002, we would be wondering about the direction of our program.

    Here is an example....

    Hard to believe a coach would be let go with just one losing season in six years, coming off a 10-3 record last year....thats big time football.

    I believe you mean 15%. I've been out of college a long time but wouldn't 12 be over 10%.

    strohs Go Bucks!

    That seems to be pretty pathetic on Ole Miss part.
    They just lost the number 1 draft pick, at QB no less, you dont just replace that (unless your USCum, which Ole Miss is not).
    He should have been given one more year, at least.

    11.7 would include JT. Isn't he already 70% gone? :)

    Utah and Washington aren't in the NorthWest now??

    Or is there a school in the SouthWest area that you think should be in the NorthWest?

    Well I'd just like to add that the reason that Lloyd Carr is going to be canned after this season because of this growing trend:
