    • Personally, I doubted the day-long buzz, mostly because Notre Dame still has a real chance at making the Playoff. These are unprecedented times. In a span of about 36 hours, we've had two of the most high profile college head coaching moves in the modern history of the sport.

      • I could see ND going after Urban Meyer. After they pick themselves off the floor.

        • Reports are that several 4 & 5 Star recruits have already withdrawn their commitments to the Sooners. In today's NCAA reality high powered coaches may be capable of bringing recruits and/or transfer portal players with them when jumping from one campus to the next.

            Brian Kelly is par for the course for Scott Woodward. It used to be that top programs like Notre Dame and Oklahoma only had to worry about the NFL poaching their coaches but times have changed. The only other instances I can recall of head coach making lateral moves at the top end of the sport is Jimbo Fisher going from Florida State to Texas A&M and Johnny Majors going from Piitt to Tennessee 45 years ago, but Tennessee was Majors' alma mater.

            • Be nice of Kelly to wait until his team is or isn't chosen to play in the playoff. Fickell to ND? Hopefully after they (Cincy) are out.

              • Tweets are saying salary for Kelly in $15M range. If that is true then all the big name coaches will get their salaries re-negotiated by the schools - they'll have to - and $15-20M will become the new norm at the very top level.

                As Dana O'Neil said in a tweet, I remember when schools were all losing money and closing down sports programs because of COVID19

                  • Jim Harbaugh to give all bonus money to Michigan Wolverines athletic department staffers who had pay cut due to COVID-19

                    • In the NFL, one team can't talk to the coach of another team under contract without penalty, and college presidents better get together and set similar policies for football coaching employment or they're going to continue to get taken to the cleaners by coaches and their agents. Mel Tucker, who had his first winning season of his 3-year career, got $95 million over 10 years (Nick Saban money) after getting humiliated by Ohio State 56-7. James Franklin got $75 over 10 years after going 4-5 in the conference play. And USC is reportedly paying Lincoln Riley $110 million, buying both of his Oklahoma homes at $500K over the asking prices, buying him a $6 million home in Los Angeles and giving his family unlimited use of a private jet 24/7 for personal use. So much for the cash-strapped athletic departments that were begging for donations during the pandemic.

                        Life in SEC is hard, Kelly must know that. Well, $10mil/year softens it.

                          Reportedly, Lincoln Riley tried to talk Oklahoma out of joining the SEC and they showed him the financial projections and told him to go back to his office and stick to coaching.

                            Big-ticket football programs need to be separate entities from their colleges. They already act that way.

                                At least now the players are getting a piece of the action. I predict there will be players with their own commercials that will be airing during the bowl season.
