Five SEC schools approached Southern Coaching Caricature Hugh Freeze about jobs this offseason, including Bama, LSU and Mizzou, before being rebuffed by SEC commish Greg Sankey. The conference has a one-year-old rule requiring the commissioner's approval for hiring coaches with a major infraction on their record.
I'll speculate Hugh does a year or two of G5 penance/high school networking then jumps right back into the league.
[Ed-Ace: Somehow this turned political and personal because of a couple posters who are now on notice and have fewer points than they did before. The OP wasn't the problem, and while the first response opened up the politics conversation, the worst part was the belittling, mischaracterizing response to those with opposing viewpoints. (Yes, especially you, Brutus.) I have less and less tolerance for that BS with each passing day and accounts are going to start disappearing if it doesn't stop. Don't confuse this board for Twitter.]
