Herman fired at UT-Austin, which is going to pay $24 million in buyouts to Herman in his staff. Allegedly they are going to hire Sarkisian, and have to pay his buyout with Alabama.

Mike Golic = F.P. Santangelo   :hammer:

I usually listen and generally only watch replays while I do something else.  Not with those 2...the sound has to go off before too long...

Doing a parlay bet tonight with Alabama beating the spread (-9) and the under (75). Of course I missed on 4 of the 5 NFL games I bet on this weekend. So probably you should do the opposite of me.

He must have pictures or videos of the school administration.

fanduel boosted the ML of bama to -110. threw $15 on it to win 14. didn't like the spread. i think bama should roll but OSU is still a wildcard to me.

I laughed at the Harbaugh deal at first like everyone else, but I actually think its quite clever for Michigan. They didn't want to do a coaching search during a COVID year. So instead they kept their current coach at a lower price, and made his buyout much smaller. If things keep going south, they can now fire Harbaugh much more cheaply.

Looking at Michigan's schedule next year, they play a bunch of "could beat Michigan" teams before the end of October, including Indiana, Rutgers, Michigan State, and hell even Northern Illinois. If Harbaugh faceplants against any of them, he could be fired by Halloween and then Michigan will be able to have a robust coaching search, at a time when they will be the best job open.

the problem is that good openings start not becoming so good if a team keeps on losing - look at the fall that Nebraska has had, even Texas will have to win at some point for the job to remain attractive

I actually think it is the only move either side could make. It's like a marriage that both know has gone sour but they have a 16-year-old kid who is 2 years from going off to college. It'd be terrible timing to divorce now for both sides, so you stick it out for another 2 years because things were "fine" before recently.

The prospects for HC this year are not good and most coaches just parlayed interviews for raises.

Harbaugh is what 3 or 4 years removed from being #3 in country and losing to Ohio St 30-27 in what was a complete screw job by the refs (no I'm not bitter). If he wins that game, this is a completely different convo. It's not like the program hasn't won in decades.

Their last 2 loss season was in 2011, their last undefeated season was 1997- the year before the BCS. In the entire BCS era, they have never played in a BCS championship or playoff game. A Michigan opening now is not as attractive as a Michigan opening used to be and every year puts them that much further from it being a great program.

No doubt that some of the luster has worn off Michigan in recent decades, but the number of HC jobs that are inarguably better than Michigan is still fairly small.

I think it’s dropped form top five to top twenty.

My picks.

If you had told me ten years ago that the over/under on a college football big game would be 75 I would think you were crazy.

Yeah I counted and there's about 9 jobs I would consider better than Michigan, unequivocally. And another 5 or so that I would consider about the same. So I think we're on the same page.

That's still pretty good and if they fire Harbaugh next year they'll still be one of the top openings.

Still alive.

I made a case for both the over and the under tonight.  Wound up passing.

The dream is dead. I thought Ohio State could stop them a coupon times. I was wrong.

Competitive first half at least.
