    Bianchi wants Spurrier back to give him another book deal and Finebaum wants Saban's dominance to continue. They have their reasons.

    Maybe someone should confirm that TX has an opening?

    They are paid to get readers/listeners/viewers. Don't hate the player hate the game. It is much ado about nothing. Muschamp is not in a stepping stone job he is at a destination job. 10% chance Muschamp leaves UF for TX. He is an SEC guy and why would he go to the Big-12 which is a mess?

    Something worth discussing, but if Muschamp wanted to be HC there, well, he didn't have to leave Texas.

    Mack Brown is apparently like Bobby Bowden. He will have to become a virtual vegetable on the sideline before they get rid of him.

    I assume the thread title is an answer to a Jeopardy question in which case I'll go with: What is "What did one bald midget say to the other?"

    Except at Mack Brown's current age Bobby Bowden was about to win his first national title.

    Texas is an odd gig. Their big money supporters have selectively forgotten everything between Earl Campbell and Ricky Williams and pretend that they weren't a middling SWC and Big-12 team for 25 years. They also seem to think they can live exclusively on in-state talent that commits to them as 16-year olds. Too much "Republic of Texas" pretension to see the reality that some of the kids from impoverished school districts in and around Houston, Dallas, and East Texas have far more upside than big school kids who as preps play, work out, and watch film in essentially high major collegiate facilities.

    Brown did a great job of locking down the state at first, but Stoops, Sumlin, and the changed landscape of recruiting have caught up to him. 2009 was a chimera.

    Muschamp would be a great hire, but he isn't leaving here (no matter how much a certain percentage of our constituency unconscionably wants him to). Petrino isn't out of purgatory yet and Pedersen won't leave Boise unless he is in a casket. Hugh Freeze and Dabo Swinney are both fairly young and recruit very well, though neither have much experience recruiting Texas. Maybe Malzahn. Whoever it is needs to be a recruiter who can scout talent better than Brown and his current staff.

    Unless things go drastically and unexpectedly wrong, I don't see him leaving for Texas or any other job for that matter.

    Actually, Texas is more like Florida than any other school in the nation in so many respects:

    * both are flagship universities of large southern states;
    * both are in states with abundant recruiting
    * both are academically sound
    * both are wealthy with large, well-heeled boosters
    * both have had a long string of success, though different in structure. Texas has a longer history of success, but Florida's recent history of success goes back to 1980, whereas Texas current streak begins in 1998
    * both have spoiled, entitled fan bases
    * both are hated by the other schools in the state for all of the above
    * both are considered top tier coaching jobs

    You guys would have loved Cowherd's last segment (sarcasm). He just got done questioning how people can dislike Kiffin - and like Muschamp. He doesn't see differences, just the similarities of landing big time jobs with a relatively weak resume. Charasmatic, good recruiters. He, too, talked about Muschamp being considered at Texas eventually.

    Question for those of you who are confident he won't leave though - Why not? I ask this honestly. I don't see how Texas isn't a better or easier job, especially as long as Saban is in the SEC.

    Except Kiffen failed in the NFL, Failed at UT, and failing at USCw.

    Muschamp has had one job and didn't take a preseason number one to a crap nut bowl and didn't have failures at two jobs prior as the head man.

    not the same

    There are some similarities, but having lived there for 12 years and married into a Longhorn family, I can tell you our constituencies are vastly different. Their most prominent supporters and most passionate demographic, sort of like Oklahoma/Okie St., comes from serious oil money and it is much, much older. Also, I would say the most popular football team in that state is unquestionably the Cowboys. Lots of Horn, Aggie, even Red Raider and OU fans throughout Texas. I would even say A&M has a more devoted younger fanbase than Texas.

    Our fanbase sort of grew in the 80s (along with our state). We are young, more tech savvy, and for the most part of have no NFL loyalties given how terrible Jax, Miami, and Tampa have been the last decade. This is a much tougher fanbase to please and is far more voluble with its criticism.

    If Kiffin failed at Tennessee by going 7-6 in his only season there, what does that say about Muschamp's 7-6 first season? Kiffin didn't fail at Tennessee, and it is too early to tell what he is doing at USC.

    I think he would stay here because he is building the program up, and if he went to Texas he would have to start over. Also, the SEC is the premiere conference in the NCAA, so why leave?

    If Texas was willing to pay $8-$10 million per year plus a ton of benefits, they could get any coach they want, including Saban.
