Judging based on the allegations and the Tunsil situation, I'd argue that Ole Miss doesn't have compliance staff.

|44 weeks 2 days ago||Thanks for putting this||
Thanks for putting this together, nice read. I'll add to the list of likely open jobs:
Syracuse - 3-3 now but few winnable games left. 3rd season for Shafer but injuries likely do him in.
Virginia Tech - I think Beamer calls it quits. Pressure is mounting in Blacksburg and its getting tough to see anything better than 7-5.
Nebraska - Yes, Riley's first season, but there has been a HUGE drop off from Pelini. A losing record puts him on the hot seat, best case scenario.
Florida International - Bowl or bust for Ron Turner. FIU made a huge mistake axing Cristobal, but Turner has yet to bring the Golden Panthers a bowl appearance. Going to likely need a road win to push .500.
Colorado - Program simply hasn't progressed under MacIntyre; tough to make progress in a loaded PAC-12 South. There's a good chance this team goes winless in the PAC-12 again (last conference win against California, November 16, 2013) - if so, MacIntyre is likely gone.
Vanderbilt - I think the SEC is going to be the toughest to figure out. I could see as many as 5 changes (Georgia, Tennessee, and Arkansas, in addition to South Carolina,and Vanderbilt) - this one is the most likely. Mason simply stepped into a bad situation - Franklin set records with the 'Dores leaving the expectations extremely high. Not only has Mason not lived up to those expectations, but also the team has fallen flat in winnable games (Temple and Kentucky in 2014; Western Kentucky in 2015).
New Mexico State - Aggies aren't exactly traditional football powers, but there's something to be said when the record of the current coach has Mike Locksley-type futility (Locksley was 2-26 at New Mexico, fired 1/4 into his third season. Doug Martin is 4-26 having beaten ONE FBS program (Georgia State, last year as their second eason as a FBS school).
Louisiana-Monroe - Berry's 2012 season has really helped, but since then the Warhawks are 11-19, including 1-5 this season. While winnable games are still remaining, most are on the road.
Idaho - I'm not sure which of the three is the most likely: (1) Paul Petrino fired, (2) Idaho dropping back to the Big Sky, or (3) Dropping football in general. Petrino has equaled his total from the past two seasons combined. Last time Idaho won more than 2 games in one season? 2010. Maybe Petrino is safe?
I actually think Chow gets another year at Hawaii - IIRC his contract is pretty cheap and despite the shutouts (Ohio State, Wisconsin and Boise State), the team has actually been competitive. Downside is Wittek graduates.
I keep going back and forth on Purdue. How they finish will depend if Hazell is safe. Four of the last five are winnable (heck, even Iowa is in most years). I think the magic number is 4 - if he wins 3 more, he's safe. Going to be an uphill climb for a guy who is 1-18 to date in the Big Ten. Regardless, the lesson here is timing - as a coach of a mid-major you have to know when to leave and where to leave for. When Beckman left for Illinois, he didn't know when to leave. When Hazell left Kent State, he didn't know where to leave.

Even if they give you the choice to watch tv they may not carry the game - flew back from Orlando the day of the Michigan/Maryland game and couldn't get it, but I could get the Alabama/Georgia game. Granted BTN as opposed to CBS, but I couldn't get ESPN games either.

Mack Brown has provided some decent commentary, nonetheless, saying Gary Andersen has made a previous trip to the Big House - with Wisconsin - was not one of his finer moments.

You might want to read page 19 of the opinion, which provides that the arbitration must occur within the confines of the CBA, a law of the shop, and actually cites to at least a few cases involving the NFL.

I grabbed Jimmy Garoppolo in the last round, thinking he would be good for at least one game - my best hope now is trading him for a bag of donuts and/or Tim Tebow.
