Might as well just wait until tomorrow to really find out. It's just speculation until it's official. Reminds me of CNN's coverage last night.
Glorious decade for sure

I completely respect this view point. Obviously I'm just on the other side of the fence. Which makes sense since I do corporate defense work and not plaintiffs work.
My main point in this situation though, is that I think his best path to getting back to the top of his profession is going a different route. There are only a limited number of head coaching positions in D1 college football (especially Power 5). Even less so for a major, blue blood. Even if it's poor form, I think it's the reality that schools will see a very public dispute being litigated and shy away from him given the situation. IMHO, I just think if he wants to get another head coaching job somewhere/anywhere significant, I think his easier path is taking his lumps, getting better, seeking forgiveness and redemption and working his way back.
I also understand your point of bullying if USC is the one saying that. But not if other schools have those discussions behind close doors and nobody ever learns of them. Which is unfortunately what I think his reality will be. Head coaches are a significant investment for a university and those discussions are warranted for the risk averse if you ask me.
Agree this is likely a way to just pursue some type of settlement but suing the school cannot be good for his chances of getting another major head coaching job. Why would any school hire a guy with his past who has a proven penchant for litigation against his employer? To me, a step towards the right path of recovery is owning your mistakes and part of that is owning the consequences attached to your mistakes. In this case, it would be not only owning the firing but deserving nothing. In the long run, the better move for him would be to live the truth and try to move on and try to better himself. To me, that's the route that gets you forgiveness and a second chance at regaining what you once had (i.e., coaching again in his case).

Great movie quote.
My mind is in the toilet. I thought it said Killer Weed; not Weed Killer.
Love waking up to a White Russian and The Game as early as possible. I don't want to wait all day for something I wait all year for.
Mike Adams was drafted. Second round. Just sayin'.
This is in no way in defense of Bollman.

Did anyone catch when Butch Davis said Miami interviewed Jim Tressel in 1995 to replace Dennis Erickson? I'm not sure I believe the accuracy of that statement given the timing but I guess it's possible. Just seems unlikely.
Welp, that makes it a bit more complicated, doesn't it?
Sounds like nothing will come of this legally, but, without assigning blame to either party, if I were him, I'd cut ties with that relationship.
Boise State is a natural addition in my opinion
It's like none of them have actually experienced an entire college football season. So much can happen. On any given single Saturday.
I'm thinking someone at the Orange Bowl wrote MSU on the ticket and someone gave them Miss State and not Sparty. Woops.
I don't mind the guy making a case for his team but the argument that wining at a 4-loss Oklahoma is the best road victory of the season is crap. The road Michigan State win by the Buckeyes is far superior.
It didn't hurt Tebow's Heisman chances
Let's also not forget to add Kenny G to the list of successful QBs in Meyer's since he tossed 6 first hash TDs v Cal.
