    They lose to Stanford and he’s canned. It looked like he was turning it around last year.

    No; he has been on a short leash since the first of last season. This gives them time to find a $EC worthy coach. ;)

    I am not sure Donte Williams is going to be a long-term improvement. I am surprised Graham Harrell didn't get the interim job.

    Based on what he said SC is looking for, I don't think Tom Herman will get an interview. Could be wrong on that though.

    They may try to poach Mario at Oregon. He may turn them down.

    Dont think Mario goes. Why? He has money and a decent product w little pressure.

    My 12 year old grandson would be a better choice than Williams, who has ZERO experience and checks only one of the boxes.

    Problem is that you can count Harrell's friends on your fingers and have an entire hand left over.

    I remember after the game here in Austin hearing the USC fans saying he needed to be fired. Seems he lasted longer than Herman.

    I think Bohn has already hired his guy to be HC, and it ain't that unqualified junior high assistant named interim.

    Hard to believe they would fire the HC without having a successor already lined up.

    HHD,

    Look into Bohn's past

    Mike Bohn hired Luke Fickell at Cincinnati.

    There's your guy. I doubt Fickell would turn him down, unless he really, really wants to stay in the upper Midwest. Fickell is an Ohio State guy. Give him time, and Fickell could dominate the PAC at the USC platform--even if Mario doesn't leave Oregon for the pros at some point.

    Why the hell is James Franklin on anybody's list? The guy is a **** coach and worse human being.

    A good read at Slate on how USC's football program went off the rails:

    How a College Football Powerhouse Fell Apart

    Or, at least it was good until I got to this paragraph:

    Heard on the radio this AM there are whispers and rumors out there about Urban Meyer as a candidate / target.... no linky, just what I heard.

    Interesting.

    Now if Urban thought dealing with UT boosters would be a headache, just wait 'til he meets the big-time USC folks.

    Meyer to USC makes no sense to me at this point. I can see why USC would want him, but not vice versa. He's had one game in the NFL! He can't hate it yet.

    Just when you think sports journalism can't get any dumber this idiot comes along. Yep, it was because of a racist song that Charlie Strong sucked as a coach and TH couldn't develop talent.

    To be fair to the idiot, he did say the supposedly racist booster thing could be a factor in the future. I still disagree 100% of course, but he didn't link it to Strong and Herman..

    But why write a phrase about less than 1% of people? It should read:

    Note the article couldn’t claim the song is racist. Only that it is alienating. That’s progress.

    My major objection was the insinuation that alums who want to keep the song are racist.
