Another College coach is on the unemployment line. Rumor has it Jim Leavitt has been fired from USF. I kind of saw this one coming after the Mike Leach firing. I personally believe that this whole thing is crazy. This is football not chess, coaches need to discipline their players. If this is going to be the new trend then Doug Marrone better watch out, he seem to run his team with a Stalin like iron fist. I am in shock that these two coaches have been let go, I remember growing up and attending catholic schools and if we ever misbehaved, out came the ruler and we would get wacked across the knuckles. I have to say that I am glad that I was raised that way; I learned very quickly right from wrong. This is the problem with the youth today. Coaches like Marrone, Leavitt, and Leach should be honored not persecuted. One day these kids are going to thank these guys, it's too bad it has come to this.
There should be no crying in football either!
Well it looks like Doug Marrone has another coaching spot to fill. Beginning Wednesday morning our running backs coach Stan Drayton will return to his previous school Florida. That now leaves five positions to fill; offensive coordinator, running backs coach, quarterbacks coach, and wide receivers coach. Here is my dream hires, Kevin Rogers as OC and qbs coach, Rob Moore as wide receivers coach, and David Walker as running backs coach. My dream hire is obviously Mike Leach as OC but that is never going to happen. Rogers is currently with the Viking as their qb coach, David Walker is Pitts Rb coach, and Rob Moore currently retired from the NFL.

Wondering who will be replacing Rob Spence up in the coach's box I can't help but think Mike Leach. Sure he punishes his players by locking them in storage rooms, but hey Marrone is king of laying the law. If Marrone hires Mike Leach, all he has to say to his players is behave or coach leach is going to bring you to the wood shed. Come on this could work. I know what you're thinking, Mike Leach he is on the Tiger list of do not talk to, but hey we are Syracuse, king of second chances. First off Grob, come on how many chances did that guy have. Dr. Gross, after firing Coach P, he hires Grob and gets to stick around to right the sinking ship and hire Marrone. Boeheim, after certain recruiting violation he comes back and eventually wins the whole damn thing and gets to wear that crazy hat. Edelin, for god's sake he got like twelve chances, and last but not least a certain cheese cake ordering point guard. Enough of the second chances just picture the possibilities; the dome and its field turf is a perfect match for a high energy attacking offense like Texas Tech has had. Now picture some kind of hybrid between the wild cat, the saint's offence and Texas tech's offense. Now that is a super offence, how about The Orange Spread. Two last things, SU has the money, no question about it, and last year during our coaching search Gross said this, "I love watching Texas Tech play. It's my favorite offense to watch." Interesting, could Gross been looking into his crystal ball, finger crossed. Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can't Lose!
