Pac 12 The Place To Be

First off, excuse our absence this week.  It was busy at home and work, and with not much going on after the SECCG, this seemed like a good as time as any to take some time off.  We were on sabbatical. 

Since we last posted, there has been a lot going on, but namely the coaching carousel continues to turn, and coaches who were fired at previous stops get some new tread and are at it again. 

The SEC definately has the deepest pool of great coaches in the ountry, but the Pac 12 might be making a run for second place.  

Mike Leach and Rich Rodriguez were announced to be at Washington State and Arizona, respectively.  Late last week, UCLA made the insane decision to hire Jim Mora, Jr.  Hey, your guess is as good as mine. 

There are some pretty good ball coaches in that conference.  The Pac 12 North now has Chip Kelly (obvious), Jeff Tedford (has done well at Cal), Mike Riley (done a decent job at Oregon State), David Shaw (I am not sold  yet, might be another version of Larry Coker), Steve Sarkisian (done great job at Washington), and Mike Leach.

The Pac 12 South has Rich Rodriguez at Arizona, Jon Embree (I don’t know this guy but he won’t be at Colorado long), Jim Mora (bad hire), Lane Kiffin (if Barkley comes back, USC will be National Title contenders in 2012), and Kyle Whittingham (done a great job at Utah since Meyer left).

Arizona state is a dumpster fire, but I would say that every school in the North has a solid coach and 3/6 in the South is solid.  Especially with Rich Rod, Chip Kelly and Mike Leach, one thing is for sure:  take the over and be ready to stay up late, cause there are going to be some high scoring games.

    I can only pray that Embree will be gone from Colorado soon. That was a bargain rate hire gamble by an athletic department that has no money. Embree played tight end on the 1990 Nat’l Champs for CU. He hired Eric Bienemy as his OC. What a joke. Bienemy hadn’t been more than a runningbakcs coach at any other level prior to this job. He was on on of UCLA’s staffs and coached for the Raiders before Embree hired is former teammate.

    I am afraid CU can’t afford to fire Embree and hire anyone else worth a damn.

    Interesting…thanks for the insight. Colorado seems like they are going to be wandering the proverbial desert until they get lucky and find a hot young coach to re energize the program.
