    Looks like the Auburn job is going to open...no surprise....quite a few SEC jobs open and up for grabs..Arkansas, Tenn. Auburn, Kentucky...Does Gruden take one of them ?

    Really? ND number one. D2 maybe. Yeah I am an SEC guy but who can seriously say ND is number one or really stands a chance of beating any of the top five teams?
    When Sam Jankovich was AD at Miami that was their mantra - a couple of patsies - a good team - then a couple of more patsies - then a good team - a couple of more patsies - a good team & eventually you are considered a powerhouse . Then you get a good coach like Jimmie Johnson & he legitimizes what is being done - from there it's all downhill . Any one on this forum think ND could go through any of the major conferences with the record they have - I think we would be looking at a 2 to 3 loss record - SEC, Little 10, Big 12 (short a few teams) or PAC 12 - I personally hope it is a 70 point loss, the preening of their Heisman candidate linebacker got a little sickening.

    Why would he - he's well respected where he is & has about the best gig in sportsdom.

    I agree but guys like Gruden are wired differently from the rest of us, maybe it is ego, maybe it is boredom. The talk about his returning to coaching may just be sports talk chatter but Chucky has a dynamic personality and I am surprised he hasn't been lured back to coaching. If our idiot owner JJ would step aside and give him the reins all of us would be happy including Gruden!

    As an owner he is not bad - as a GM he sucks - IMO - but he let Jimmie Johnson get away so that tells you a lot!! It's tough to see a franchise be managed into the ground but yours is not the only one, if that's any consolation - is there a dearth of talent at those heights or is it folks afraid to make a real decision? Peter Principle anyone ?

    Gruden's personality fits perfectly for CFB...it wears thin on high paid NFL instant millionaire prima donnas...could you imagine him recruiting him your kid after Nick Saban comes in, flashing that Super Bowl ring, and looking like that Chucky doll character...I think he would jump at the chance to go head to head against Nick and the Hat @ LSU..Gruden is a football gym rat, he is still a very young guy who is hip enough to relate to the high school/college recruit...

    If by some chance the Oregon job comes open if Kelly goes to the NFL, Gruden would Just Do It with Nike

    No chance again. Say it with me. Capital One or Cotton. Doesn't that feel better?

    Actually Les Miles said he was going to watch every snap of that Game where AUB was tied or in the lead.

    So I guess he switched the channel after the coin toss

    It's actually pretty sad. The dudes good, but Heisman material?...a stretch I think.

    Well the line on the Bama vs UGA game just came out....Crimson Tide minus 8 points: over/under at 51

    expect both numbers to move later after they open to the public

    Sorry, I thought LSU fans (and particularly Les Miles) would have been watching to figure out how to beat *uburn worse than 12-10.

    You cannot throw bait like that right in front of my face and expect me not to take it.
