PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Rummors are that Pertinno will go to CAL
Ark has offered Mille 27.5 million for 5 years.
Les Miles from LSU? 5.5 million is a nice salary and all, but surely he wouldn't leave Baton Rouge for Arkansas.
Louisiana Tech head coach Sonny Dykes will interview for the North Carolina State head football coaching job Wednesday
That would be a good hire for them. Dykes is an up and comer.
I am curious to see if anyone reaches out to Darrell Hazell from Kent State.
Didn't see Petrino going out west,figured he'd try to stay in SEC country!!Can't see Arkansas getting Les Miles!!He's got a good thing with LSU,but you never know...
Petrino at Cal could be something though. Put him in that recruiting gold mine out there. He's already got some nice talent on the offensive side of the ball. They could be quite good.
Plus, he seems to prefer blondes...

Cal is not in a good place recruiting wise. Have always been held back by admission standards, although hiring Petrino may be a signal that they no longer have any standards!
USC' gets first pick in Los Angeles. Then UCLA, and then the Arizonas and Oregons do battle with Cal for the leftovers. Sacramento valley is pretty fertile, but again, the best kid in the valley goes to SC, and Cal battles UCLA, Fresno State and now Oregon and Boise State for those kids. Tedford went the JC route for some of his better kids, but that (and the crushing academic requirements) made the graduation rate low.
Nationally, other than QBs and receivers, Cal has sucked too much to be a real draw, and has to compete with N Dame and STANFORD for the difference makers.
Thing about Petrino is, he's a coach that puts ball players into the NFL. He did it at UofL and Arkansas. Stanford wasn't exactly on top of the world before Harbaugh. Cal already has some talked players. I would be willing to bet Cal, with Petrino would end up being a pretty nice team.
Tedford put guys into the NFL also: A. Rodgers, Boller, Lynch, Vereen, Forsett etc.
UW owned Cal in the 80's and 90's and now Oregon, Stanford and O State a little. Pac South also on rise with Mora and Dick Rod
Agree about Stanford, but they always had QBs and always were able to get coaches a notch above what their program would merit based on W-L only. Walsh, D Green etc.
Cal's in a bad competitive position recruiting wise, conference rival wise, tradition wise, and administration support wise.
Closest analogy might be Illinois ... state school with more prestigious N'western (Stanford) 40 miles away, and Michigan (UCLA) up the road. Cal is worse off because MSU is not USC
Yep Earle, he may have already picked through the best the SEC had to offer!
Pettrino can ride his bike year around. The police won't stop him they slide alot stuff under the table.
Charlie Strong interviewed for Auburn.
Now that Louisville is joining the ACC, I can see Charlie Strong staying at Louisville. The path to a BCS/NC will be a little easier going through the ACC versus the SEC...Louisville is going to have to ante up to keep him though!
There talk TCu coach will talk to Ark.
Butch Jones is play for Purdue.
All I care about is that the OSU staff stays intact...who cares about any other school. Louisville may or may not lose Strong. As far as I'm concerned, that's the only job opening right now that effects OSU as far as recruiting or anything else for that matter.

Heard Warriner's name thrown around, sure do hope Meyer insisted he stay a certain amount of time. Might be our most valuable assistant!
Miami coach Al Golden could be a player at Tennessee. Penn State coach Bill O'Brien is also in play. Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy is rumored to have expressed an interest as well.
Monte Kiffin put ad DVD of USC.
I think it is a dangerous time to switch schools. If you know what you got now, hard to imagine you would give that up and potentially face an OBrian/Meyer situation. Now, if the pay is right, who cares right? I just feel that a lot of these coaches are good because they care about their image/record. Miles going from LSU (honey pot of talent and fan support) to Arkansas (even for more money) might not sit well. He has it made, he can coach there for a long time, it's a good gig. Retire on top...
That's the thing, Miles wouldn't even be making a lateral move. He's at a school who puts up with his antics and at times just horrible coaching. Put him at a school where he can't get the same kind of recruits and what happens? I'm not sure he makes it. He's got to good of a gig to leave for essentially a demotion. He has one of the top 5 brands in college football right now.
A friend from So Cal Jeff Telford CPUs be USC next Oc.
Ark and Autburn are going after Bo Pelleni.
I heard Pelleni mentioned for some SEC jobs, but I don't get it. Why would you leave Nebraska, a top 10 all time program for Auburn or Arkansas. He may go, but I don't get why he would want to.
Butch Jones been. Offered Purdue.
I believe Bo came from Lsu.
Bo was born and raised in Ohio and went to OSU. He was a linebacker and I believe he was All Big Ten
I would take these rumors seriously if people could site their source(s) every so often. It doesn't even have to be specific... Example, "I read on a website that..." I dunno, it may just be me, but a lot of this seems like a coach's name is picked and then attatched to some school with a job opening. I take it all with a grain of salt.
Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...
i agree. listing a source goes a long way.
Bo was LSU DC 2005-2007
"Attack the Strong, Trample the Weak, Hurdle the Dead!"
-Former OSU S&C Coach Lichter
what I've read it looks like:
- B1G wants GT, UNC, and UVA in that order.
- SEC wants UNC and VT in that order. Will take NCSU if cannot get UNC.
- UNC wants UVA if they were to go anywhere.
For VT, insiders are stating we will not get left behind. I think SEC and Big 12 will be our only options if ACC dies. I want nothing to do with Big 12.
Skip Holtz is very close to getting fired at Usf
I heard Lou Holtz is going to be interviewed for a position of OSU water boy.
He might be more than a little over qualified:
Holtz was born in west Liverpool, East Liverpool, Ohio and graduating from East Liverpool High School, Holtz attended Kent State University. He was a member of the Delta Upsilon Fraternity, played college football as an undersized linebacker, and graduated in 1959. He began his coaching career as a graduate assistant in 1960, at Iowa, where he received his Master's degree. From there, he made stops as an assistant at William & Mary (1961–1963), Connecticut (1964–1965), South Carolina (1966–1967) and Ohio State (1968). The Ohio State Buckeyes won the national championship during Holtz's season with the team.
Proud parent of a Senior at The Ohio State University
He was Woody assailant coach on his 68 team.
Hazell is apparently interviewing with Cal.
News story about Hazell potentially to UC Berk...
Here is a rumor with an actual source. Can anyone validate this?
*EDIT* Answered my own question...looks like it is confirmed, per NCSU official sport's site
So now that (21) Northern Illinois beat (17) Kent State, (16) UCLA lost, (18) Texas lost, and (12) Nebraska got thrashed... Does Northern Illinois get the Orange Bowl invite? If so, is Doeren coaching the bowl game?

Hindu could be play for Tenn or Auburn. Strong wont go to Tenn not enough experience as a head coach .
Strong is the one of the hottest commodities out there for a head coaching gig. I believe if he is willing to leave Lousiville he has his choice of which SEC school he goes to (obviously only reffering to ones with coaching availabilities)
Sorry Urban, Woody is still my favorite
Sec schools want a coach to be able to turn around a program in 2-3 years. Schools won't sit around for a 4-5 year plan. When schools in the sec are paying coaches 2-4 million a year they dont have the patience. Auburn there buyout for there coach is around 7 million.
Tenn problem they have not recruited Virgina and Carolina's. Those state Where Fulmer hot his great players
Not convince Strong leaves has great facAlties, get paid allot of money and joined a new league. I believe he told Bridwater he be Ul for his 4 years.
There are lots of high-profile coaching gigs open this year, maybe a little more than normal. If Louisville hadn't just moved to the ACC I would guess Strong would be gone. Now he has a reason to stay. He can tell recruits the Cards are in a better conference than the dying Big East. He also knows his team is going to be solid again next year. Why leave?
I really believe Butch Jones to Purdue is going to happen. UC hasnt left the Big East yet and they may not. Sinking shipsville.
Tennessee will go for the home run. If not Gruden then at least someone people have heard of before. Whoever signs Petrino will have to deal with his baggage. Not sure the Vols want another headache after Dooley and Kiffin.
If Nebraska gets throttled again in its bowl game I wonder if Pelini may be out of work, especially considering Osborne just retired. That would add another high-profile gig to the list.
Coach Hazell would turn Cal around. Hopefully not until after we've played them next year LOL
Arkansas will go after one of Saban's assistants. That would impress the fanbase.
Kentucky will continue to suck no matter who they hire.

At this point Butch Jones leaving UC is all but certain (presumably to Colorado), Leaving UC as another attractive coaching vacancy.
A buddy of mine used to work within their athletic department and knows a lot of the boosters. They have known for some time that Jones would be leaving and had all ready began to develop their list of potential canidates. Many are not surprising: Bob Diaco, Pat Narduzzi, and Tom O'Brien are among the top tier.
But at the top of their list is someone near and dear to our heart: Jim Tressel. While we both agreed that UC probably does not have the resources to bring him in (and that is even before the show clause), it still was interesting to me to hear that that was a legitamate option in the mind of the UC hgher ups. I think it would be a situation full of drama thats for sure (and recruting the state of Ohio would definitely become trickier).
Again, probably a pipe dream on thier part, but figured I would at least past on this info. (Also this is my first post on 11W hope you guys found it iof value and interest)
