    Starting early this year. Jeff Quinn out at the University of (at) Buffalo.

    Florida and Michigan will be the most interesting openings.

    Mullen and Harbaugh.

    So Quinn recruits arguably the best defensive player in the country last year, who goes top 5 in the draft, for a team that makes a bowl game, and they shit-can him?

    Because they think they're making the playoff any time soon?

    No and no.

    Mississippi State will empty the bank account to keep Mullen. Florida can afford to pay more obviously, but Mullen doesn't need the headache that comes with coaching at Florida. There are also questions about whether the two get along, which makes sense since Meyer (Mullen's boss at UF) and Foley hate each other.

    I actually think Harbaugh would be more likely to go to Florida than Michigan, but I think he'll stay in the NFL. I think Michigan may make another run at Miles and I think they actually stand a chance to get him this time.

    I think Florida will hire Schiano or Mark Stoops. Petrino is mentioned as a replacement, but I don't think we'll see him at a state school anytime soon.

    If Bowen has KU actually competing against Top 25 teams for the rest of the season like he did on Saturday, he might have a shot at keeping the job.

    In the story, it notes that Mack and the other NFL Bulls were Turner Gill recruits, and that Quinn hasn't managed to recruit anywhere near as well as his predecessor.

    If you have any chance at all to go from StarkVegas to Gainesville, Florida.......it's not a real hard decision.

    Except Gainesville surely won't be his only other option.

    I really, really don't think it's ever going to happen, but an ESPN Insider story with a "Harbaugh confidant" as a source reported that if he leaves San Francisco for a college job it would be Kansas. He interviewed last time around and went back to Stanford and told his assistants he was taking the job before Shaw and others talked him out of it.

    It's the old "his wife is from there" story, which never turns out to be a reason for a guy to take a job, but he apparently likes the place for one reason or another. I just can't believe he'd take that kind of step down though.
