Get out of town Jimbo. Just don't go to the Plains....
One of the huge issues not being talked about is the number of vacancies in the SEC this year. Some openings are more attractive than others. You have a coach two years removed from the NC being run out of town after a free fall. The number of vacancies occurring at the same time in the same conference compound the difficulty of finding your guy and getting the right staff. .
Another issue not being addressed is the quiet resistance of the academic community around perceived salary excesses. This has become more public at FSU and I've picked up resistance at Tennessee and Kentucky.
Kevin Sumlin is a guy who overcame the odds at Houston and at Texas A&M. He and Hugh Freeze have shown you can come in and make a immediate difference.
These new coaches, who ever they are, have a helluva hill climb at Kentucky, Arkansas, Tennessee, and Auburn.
The programs at Alabama, Florida, LSU, SCarolina, Georgia, and Texas A&M can never take a day off.
