    This is not stated in the article, but I think he could land at Clemson, Syracuse, or Kansas St if he really wants to keep going.

    Does he have any upside as a Defensive Coordinator for a 4-3 team in the NFL? I might know of a team that could be in the market for one...

    How is Houston Nutt working out for y'all?? Were you expecting 6-4, better, worse?

    I would expect that beating Florida helps a lot.

    I think all the games they have lost have been close too.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they took out LSU this weekend either.

    Love him. I didn't expect us to be at .500 this season quite honestly after looking at our schedule. I've been very impressed with him and the team so far. The team is really exceeding my expectations. I just hope we can find a decent replacement for LT Oher, DE Hardy and DT Jerry (if these two leave early).

    That's one thing that's so frustrating, the games we lost have been SO close. Wake Forest (last second FG), Vanderbilt (6 pts), South Carolina (7 pts), ALABAMA (4 pts).

    I fully expect us to win out this year: LSU and Mississippi St. and finish the season 8-4.

    That Florida game was so fun to watch. And Alabama... we had the ball at mid field with like a minute and a half left... such a shame we couldn't pull it out. ("that's what she said"- Michael Scott)

    Lookin good so far.

    Defense is pounding LSU.

    Jarrett Lee is terrible. Probably couldn't even start at Michigan.

    Ole Miss is playing tough but has dropped about three INTs, one of which would have been a sure TD.

    Funny how a DB can't even put his hand on a WR's hip to stay with him when he turns around for the ball, but a WR can push a DB to the ground on his way up to catch a ball.

    Luckily for LSU, Lee went down with a sprained ankle and the 3rd stringer came in and looks light years better than Lee.

    Maybe Fulmer can have the Notre Dame job soon.

    Notre Dame just lost to Syracuse.

    LSU is just as bad at QB as Michigan is.

    It's a testament to their defense (and Charles Scott) that they have won as many games as they have.

    Watching Lou Holtz squirm, spit, and whine when talking about Notre Dame on College Football Live is very funny to me. I don't know if that makes a bad person or not.

    His completely biased take on ND, plus the fact that he blatantly cheated at every program he coached makes me enjoy his misery.

    Probably not a representation of the entire fan base, but wow:

    I can't imagine throwing anything at the players I cheer for.

    Rumor is that Auburn will fire Tommy Tuberville:

    http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=3742934

    This is a head scratcher. He is the only Auburn coach to beat Alabama six times in a row and prior to this season, Auburn had finished in the top 15 four years in a row and five of the last six.

    The guy got fired for having ONE bad season.

    What I've heard is that he had a $6 million bonus if he resigned, which he did. He got $3 million and will get a payment of $3 million later. Rumors are circulating, though, that he was told to resign isntead of being fired.

    Maybe Auburn is afraid of losing a ton of ground to Alabama. Stupid Auburn. The guy is a damn good coach. It won't take him long to find a job.
