Despite the college football season having recently wrapped up, an entirely different season (and one that is arguably more exciting) has just begun: The hunt by many colleges to find new head coaches. The coaching carousel is spinning at full speed, and on Monday, Allen Kenney, my co-managing editor at Crystal Ball Run (as well as from Blatanthomerism.com) stopped by to break it all down.

Allen and I are always full of opinions, and weren’t afraid to share them on this fun-filled podcast. Included, we talked about:
- What’s going on at Texas A&M? Is Kevin Sumlin a good hire? Is he in over his head, and is the A&M administration even going to give him a chance to succeed?
- Was Mark Richt ever really an option at A&M? Why Allen thinks that the Mark Richt rumor speaks to higher problems at A&M, and why I think the rumor might’ve been leaked by Richt himself.
- Why Allen and I disagree on the Jim Mora Jr. hire at UCLA (aka Jim L. Mora). Allen thinks it’s a shot in the dark by UCLA, while I think it can work. Can Mora make UCLA a portal to the NFL for high school kids? Or is he the next, in a great long line of coaching failures at the school.
- Onto Kansas, where Allen hates the Charlie Weis hire. Why did the school pay so much for him and is there any chance he can earn the salary? On the opposite side, is this the most exposure Kansas football has gotten since their 2007 Orange Bowl season?
