Giving up 45+ in 3 of your first 4....Strong Era is coming to an end.

So when does the hammer come down and who's next?

I think after we lose to OU he is out and hopefully that sends a message to Herman not to travel on the LSU quite yet.

Oh we'll fire Bedford and give him another chance to "fix" things in sure. Nevermind the fact that nobody from his original staff will be left at that point.

So what are you guys on the Herman train going to do if he doesn't come here?

20% chance at best, no?

Briles? You that desperate?

Or do we start up the Saban/Gruden hype again?

Just curious.

That is the kind of thinking that got Rick Barnes as much time as he got.

You really think it's a 20% chance? All indications are the guy wants to be here.

20%? Why?

I think it's closer to a 20% chance that we hold anybody else on the schedule under 50.

But he is not a 100% slam dunk so clearly hoping defensive minded Strong can come up with a way to score 60 points every game is the way to go.

Okay adults only please. I didn't bring snarkiness and I don't need it from you, either.

LSU obviously has the early lead, USC is probably one bad loss from pulling the trigger themselves, Baylor has likely already put out feelers, and Notre Dame, Auburn and a couple others could be open too. So even if Herman considers Texas the best job, timing and all could prohibit that.

Just asking what your plan B is?

If all those jobs you just mentioned and Texas are open....he takes Texas.

So you don't have a Plan B.

Just admit you were dead wrong about Strong and we can all be friends again. I mean I'm with you dude, I like the guy too and wanted him to succeed. But it's time to admit what we are.

We're not friends anymore?

Look, I'm obviously a huge Strong supporter, and I think he can still win here, and I think he probably deserves another year (just because the cupboard was so bare when he got here), but the reality of the situation is that he is in a make or break year and giving up 150 points in three games is not going to get it done, not matter how college football has changed, calibrations and defensive expectations have changed, etc.

But, I am just asking, if we all agree that Tom Herman is a can't miss, what happens if he doesn't come here?

Because if we fire a guy after three years I don't want to go through this same shit again.

A bigger stack of cash than LSU, USC, Baylor, Notre Dame, Auburn and a couple of others.

If Herman is offered the job, he will take it. No need for plan B.

Also, my gripe is not OMG STRONG IS A FUCKING RETARD AND HE PROBABLY BREAKS THREE TEETH OUT EVERY SINGLE DAY TRYING TO EAT ROCKS FOR BREAKFAST BEFORE HE REALIZES THAT IS A BAD IDEA AND HE SUCKS AND SHOULD DIE. He's a good recruiter and a good man. <obvious>I just think there's been a very clean break in the way football is played during his career </obvious> and he's not the guy to win in the Big XII, let alone on a national level. Right guy, wrong time.

I would say that Mike MacIntyre would be worth an interview in the event of HermanFail given his ability to breathe life into a moribund Colorado program, but then there's the whole Gary Barnett thing.

Let's just get Patrick Reed and surround him with some good coordinators.

I don't think OU will can Stoops, but they will force him to can his brother.

It's really hard to imagine the next hire could be worse than him so no need to act like there is some risk in firing Strong.

But whatever, I mean they do whatever they do. It will probably be something stupid.
