Probably not but Count asked a question with a specific number in response to another post and got an answer that wasn't related.

 

 

 

Since the question was about blowout losses, I went with the 4 biggest that I could remember.  Not everything is a personal affront, I was just responding to what I thought was a legitimate question.

Again, if Bo Pelini had been fired after last year's UCLA game or Iowa game, it may not have been the right choice but it certainly wouldn't have been surprising.

 

The win against Georgia and the off-season makeover made a difference, but we're only 9 months removed from a Code Red, so yeah.....that's a hot seat.  

 

The off-season makeover is no different than any we've seen over the past couple of seasons.  Any PR guy can make you look good when you are carrying out his choreographed actions.  When the heat of the moment comes, that's when we'll see it.  

 

This PR response to everything Bo does is BS...His players, co-workers and people that have known him for a long time all say he is a great guy and very personable.  We as fans don't see that side like they do but instead see the intense Bo when he is working.  Maybe, just maybe, Bo is letting us fans see his real demeanor and it isn't some PR bullsh#t like everyone claims it is.

His seat is not any hotter, nor has it been any hotter, than any other coach with his winning percentage.  All coaching seats are "hot" at this level if that's the way you want to reference it.

 

His seat is hotter than....

 

Chuck Martin

Chris Peterson

Mark Helfrich

Urban Meyer

David Shaw

Jimbo Fisher

Guz Malzahn

Bob Stoops

Rob Carey

Tim DeRuyter

Bobby Wilder

Craig Bohl

Nick Saban

Brian Kelley

Mark Hudspeth

Mark Richt

Bobby Petrino

Bill Clark

Steve Spurrier

Les Miles

Gary Patterson

Chris Creighton

Dino Babers

Larry Coker

Hugh Freeze

Charlie Strong

Bronco Mendenhall

 

those are the coaches with a better win percentage than him....

 

His seat is also hotter than...

 

Kevin Sumlin

Jeff Monken

Jim Mora

Dabo Swinny

Paul Johnson

Bret Bielema

Pete Lembo

Mark Whipple

Mike Gundy

Dave Doeren

Bill Snyder

Kyle Whittingham

Matt Campbell

Terry Bowden

Matt Wells

Frank Solich

Ron Caragher

Mark Dantonio

Todd Graham

Gary Pinkel

Tommy Tuberville

Larry Fedora

Bobby Hauck

Larry Blakeney

Dennis Franchoine

Ken Niumatalolo

Butch Jones

James Franklin

Kliff Kingsbury

Mike Leach

Jerry Kill

 

...those are the ones batting within .100 of Bo.

 

 

Out of that entire list...the only one in there that might be on a seat as warm as Bo is maybe...and it's a big maybe: Frank Beamer.  Maybe Fedora at North Carolina, or Paul Johnson at GTech but I'd say Bo has them topped, and most sportswriters obviously agree.

 

 

If anything, it goes to show you how badly Bo has handled his time as an HC.  No other coach anywhere near him is an 8 win season from getting canned.  But there's our dear ol' football coach, with his .707 win percentage being metioned with Muschamp (.579) or Holgorsen (.553), or Weis (.167).  

 

Can you at least eliminate the coaches on here that are coaching at a school for the first time this year?  I mean, they weren't going to be on the hot seat no matter what.

 

3/4 of those guys don't coach in a big boy conference either...
