    Lots of jobs, lots of movement in the forecast. Some Wyoming fans eem to believe the Mizzou OC is a lock for the job.

    Urban Meyer seemed resigned to the fact that Charlie Strong and Dan Mullen would have a lot of offers to move on during his press conference today.

    The feeling I get is one of them, more likely Strong, moves on to a top job next season.

    I'd like to think the Cincinnati job will be opening up shortly.

    There is NO EFFING REASON why Charlie Strong should still be a coordinator next season.

    There's no way Christensen takes Wyoming. With the James/Pinkel connection, Washington would be intriguing. I hope he doesn't leave, but this would be the time.

    You're right. I think the only reason he will be is if the job offers he gets aren't jobs he wants, or if he doesn't want to be a head man.

    And I'd expect him to get a lot of good offers, hence my previous assertion.

    I hadn't heard about Rocky Long at New Mexico - a bit of a surprise one season removed from a 9-4 year. Guess he wasn't hearing what he wanted about a new contract.
    Would the Lobos bring back Dennis Franchione? And I know Terry Bowden is looking to make a comeback. John L. Smith, Glen Mason and Gary Barnett are out there.

    I think Venables takes K-State.

    I've heard two names who are the serious candidates from some pretty good sources.....and he isn't one of them.

    One I wouldn't mind, the other I'm dead-set against.

    He's also interviewed with Climpson. I suppose there are plusses and minuses to each of the jobs.

    Selfishly, I hope OU locks up Venables with a hefty pay rise.

    This may be way off-base, but I've heard that the only reason Strong hasn't gotten a head coaching job before now, at least in the South, is that his wife is white. Some old-timer ADs and board members aren't comfortable with that sort of thing ...
