So, Grantham is on his way to Louisville, any thoughts on who we may get at UGA? My favorite would probably be Ed Orgeron, but Kirby Smart would be nice...
First Lakatos resigned, leaving UGA void of a DBs coach. Then, Grantham left yesterday to go to Louisville (Thank the lord). Now, Wilson, the DL coach is interviewing with Alabama. UGA will have a new and hopefully revamped Defensive coaching staff. I see Kirby Smart as new DC. Ed Orgeron as DL coach. Not sure about DBs yet though. If this happens, good things will be coming to UGA!
Todd Grantham is leaving Georgia and going to Louisville and for that we are thankful! Ed Orgeron or Kirby Smart would be a great hire if Richt can pull it off.
Thank you Lord. Todd Grantham left UGA. Time to try for Kirby Smart again or go for Ed Orgeron

Strike up "Go tell Aunt Rhodie", also known as the Aggie War Hymn.

Black Monday preview. Jets keep Ryan. Shanahan likely out in DC. Frazier will be out in Minny. Schwarz in Detroit the biggest under-achievers in NFL will get the door. Allen seems a goner in Oakland. Ditto for Munchak in Tennessee. Smith in Atlanta if I owned/ran team. Will any former Head Coaches like Lovie Smith, Brian Billick, Josh McDaniel, Mike Shula, Wade Phillips, Jack Del Rio, Lane Kiffin be recycled in NFL or college? Penn State will be looking if Bill OBrien takes Texans job as expected. Minnesota will be looking if Jerry Kill quits for health reasons. Don't expect Tom Coughlin to step down with Giants but its a possibility. Ed Orgeron deserves a head job in college. No chance Tony Dungy or Jon Gruden leave TV.

GAME 2: Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl: Dec. 21, 3:30 p.m. Fresno State vs. University of Southern Cal Fresno State (11-1) was well on its way to a BCS bid when it lost its regular season finale. QB Derek Carr is a must see.He leads FBS with 4,866padsing yards and 48 Touchdowns SC (9-4) after firing Lane Kiffin (right move) SC had a midseason resurgence under interim coach Ed Orgeron. Orgeron won't be coaching the bowl game after not getting the new head job. If so I may have went a different way, but I still think Carr is too much for SC. Prediction: Fresno State 44, USC 31
Free Play from Steve Janus USC Trojans -6 A lot of people aren't expecting USC to show up for this game after it was announced that Steve Sarkisian would be the Head Coach next season, which ultimately forced beloved interim Head Coach Ed Orgeron out the door. Personally any coach for the bowl game is better than Lane Kiffin and I think the players are going to respond, especially after last year's disappointing loss to Georgia Tech in the Sun Bowl. Keep in mind USC came into last season with the expectation of playing for a national championship and were without their starting quarterback in the bowl game. There's a lot of players on this USC team that will be auditioning for the NFL and with scouts paying close attention to Fresno State's David Carr, they have a chance here to improve their draft stock against what I feel is an overrated Bulldogs team. If USC was 100% motivated for this game, I think they would win by 20+ points. Fresno State has no defense whatsoever, will be facing arguably the best d ... Las Vegas Bowl breakdown: Fresno State vs. USC Reason to watch: With the departure of interim coach Ed Orgeron, USC becomes the rare team to play for three different coaches in a single season.

Las Vegas Bowl Fresno State Bulldogs (11-1) vs. Southern Cal Trojans (9-4) December 21st 2:30 PM on ESPN DID YOU KNOW: This will be the 3rd meeting between Fresno State and Southern Cal. The Bulldogs won the 1st meeting in the 1992 Freedom Bowl 24-7 while Trojans won the 2nd meeting 50-42 in 2005. Southern Cal has had a tumultuous season that started with Lane Kiffin's controversial tenure at USC ended with his firing following a 62-41 loss at Arizona State in September. The Trojans promoted assistant Head Coach Ed Orgeron to the interim job. Southern Cal seemed to be sparked by the coaching change, winning 6 of its 7 under Orgeron before ending the regular season with a 35-14 home loss to then UCLA. Despite that success, AD Pat Haden decided to hire former assistant Steve Sarkisian away from Washington rather than give the permanent job to Orgeron, who resigned to pursue another Head Coaching job and turned down offers from Sarkisian to remain on staff. Southern Cal QB Cody Kessler: "After the Coach O m ...

Instead, Haden went outside the current staff, but to another coach wit ...
Ed Orgeron just resigned from SC. He just spent the last two months turning around a doomed former national power by making his kids believe in him. I honestly believe Will Muschamp did the opposite. Can we at least take a meeting? Something?
Brett Hundley passed for 208 yards and rushed for two touchdowns, leading No. 22 UCLA past No. 23 Southern California 35-14 Saturday night and winning the crosstown showdown for the second straight season. Linebacker Myles Jack and defensive end Eddie Vanderdoes also rushed for touchdowns as the Bruins (9-3, 6-3 Pac-12) earned their first win at the Coliseum since 1997, retaining the Victory Bell by grinding out just their third victory over USC (9-4, 6-3) in 15 years. Javorius Allen rushed for 123 yards and a score for the Trojans, who had won five straight in their revitalized season under interim coach Ed Orgeron. Cody Kessler passed for 174 yards and hit Xavier Grimble with a TD pass for USC. But its defense couldn't handle Hundley, who rushed for 80 yards.

I know he's had some prolific offenses and a Heisman QB play under him, but can I get an intelligent explanation as to why Kevin Sumlin is being labeled as the 'it' coach in college football. Don't get me wrong I think he's a good coach. However, the idea that Ed Orgeron's biggest knock is that he wouldn't be a 'sexy hire' compared to Sumlin seems ridiculous to me. In five full seasons as a Head Coach, Sumlin's teams have lost four or more games three times. He's never been to a BCS game and his defenses have been notoriously mediocre at best. He beat Alabama once and won the C-USA twice. Since when did that qualify as great?

Alabama and Florida State remained in the top two spots in this week's BCS standings, while Baylor moved up to No. 4 and is nipping on the heels of No. 3 Ohio State. Baylor, which beat Texas Tech to improve to 9-0 on Saturday, sits a microscopic .0013 behind the Buckeyes in the BCS average. Last week, the gap between the teams was .0308. No. 2 Florida State also closed the gap on No. 1 Alabama by about 25 percent, but both teams are comfortably positioned ahead of the other contenders in the two spots that earn a berth in the VIZIO BCS National Championship. Alabama slogged through a 20-7 win at Mississippi State, while Florida State crushed Syracuse 59-3. Florida State and Ohio State are both 10-0, but the Seminoles lead the Buckeyes by .0792, leaving little doubt that if the two front-runners win their remaining games, they will play for the national title. Alabama and Florida State are tied for first in the computer ratings, while Baylor and Auburn are tied for third. Ohio State is fifth. After Baylor ...

WHAT HAVE WE LEARNED FROM THIS WEEK IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL? By Grady - November 17, 2013 COACHES ON THE HOT SEAT - * Ed Orgeron - This isn't fair as Coach Orgeron has done a fantastic job taking over for Kiffin. But his time at Ole Miss and his 15-25 record will hinder serious consideration. Look for Kevin Sumlin to be contacted in early December for the USC job. Jack Del Rio has already interviewed. * Mack Brown - After reeling off 6 straight wins, the horns suffer their worst home loss of the Brown era. Close inspection of those 6 wins shows lots of fortunate happenings to overcome some powerhouse teams like Iowa State and Kansas. * Charlie Weiss - Despite their first conference win after 27 straight conference losses, people in Kansas are tired of losing. Perhaps seeing players wilt under the weight of carrying Coach Weiss triumphantly off the field was the final straw that broke the camel's back. Weiss is not the schematic genius he thought he was. * Bo Pellini - Nebraska hasn't been Nebraska - ...
Ed Orgeron is 5-1 at USC. He freakin' beat Stanford! He's like the Les Miles of the PAC 12. Not saying he should get the job. But he should be compensated enough to stay on the staff.
USC should be embarrassed for interviewing other candidates during the season without letting Ed Orgeron have a shot to earn it (IMHO he has). Not to mention was a bad Head Coach (going 69-72 in Jax). BTW, Orgeron was a big time part of the top notch USC teams they had in the early 2000's. Haden has no loyalty at all.
ESPN confirms Jack Del Rio interviewed for the USC Head Coaching job two weeks ago during the Broncos Bye week. As great as Ed Orgeron has done and how he has inspired the Trojans to play Trojan football, I do not believe he is the long term answer for Southern Cal. When Kiffin was let go, I said from the beginning Del Rio was the right choice for Southern Cal and I have not wavered on that thinking. Do the right thing Haden, throw so much money at Del Rio and snag him before Signing Day, and retain Orgeron as Asst HC and recruiting coordinator. With those 2, we take our last year of sanctions and reload. The calm before the storm. Then in 2015, its back to dominance and taking the SEC off its pedestal. The crystal footballs are already being made to go in the Trojans trophy case, the rest of the country just doesn't know it yet.
*USC gets rid of the pretty boy/celebrity coach, and the meat/potatoes Ed Orgeron leads them to beat Stanford thereby messing up the BCS picture again. Maybe Jon Gruden isn't the answer, USC. *Auburn, Jesus loves you. Or at least Mary does. One of the best Hail Marys ever. *The lowly Bucs, Steelers, Eagles all won. Does Nick Foles have the Chip Kelly offense figured out now? *Texans lost. Not only do you lose you bench your only hope and qb to bring Schaub back in and still manage to lose. Why bother? Keenum is your future and this season is done. *Arkansas plays Miss State next week. It was supposed to be a very winnable game. Then MSU lost to Alabama 20-7. Hogs lost to Alabama 118-4. Not feeling so good now.
Congratulations to Coach Ed Orgeron and the USC Trojans for the hard-fought victory Saturday night and the amazing turnaround this season. Disappointing for Stanford followers, but failing to score any points on a first-and-goal following a turnover proved to be costly for the Cardinal. Stanford's best hope is now the Holiday Bowl. Was it me, or did both teams get awfully conservative in the second half?
I know that Ed Orgeron is doing great at USC but I don't think he deserves THE job. He derserves to get a job as the Head Coach somewhere, but not USC. We interviewed Del Rio and I feel that is a better choice as far as recruiting goes. Most of the kids going to schools like USC are looking to go to the NFL. Del Rio has coached many years in the NFL and this will look good to potential recruits. At this point I say Del Rio should be the top choice.
Stanford, Washington, Oregon St. and Arizona have major issues. Also should USC keep Ed Orgeron as coach?
I'm not a USC fan, but man, you HAVE to love Ed Orgeron! He's filled in Kiffin's position perfectly XD
With one of the biggest home games of the year ahead on Saturday against Stanford, USC coach Ed Orgeron wrote personally-addressed notes to each member of the marching band.
USC Head Coach Ed Orgeron was my coach at Miami. Tough, intense & treats players like his sons.
If USC doesn't hire Ed Orgeron as the Head Coach, it will be a terrible decision! He's earned it, has SEC Head Coaching experience, and a monster recruiter. He is what your program needs despite his lack of being "Hollywood"!
Ed Orgeron - I can't place who, but he's a dead ringer for some actor. USC should lock him up on contract right now.
Ed Orgeron comeback coach of the year?
Big Picture: Orgeron's 180 sparks USC's big win over No. 5 Stanford Heidari kicks a 47-yard field goal with 19 seconds to play and seals USC's win. (Getty) LOS ANGELES -- For the first time in 14 years, USC fans stormed the field after a Trojan win Saturday night, celebrating as if they'd just won a national title after their team's stunning upset of No. 5 Stanford, 20-17, on a last-minute field goal. On this night, the Trojans didn't snap an eight-game losing streak against arch-rival UCLA. Saturday's victory over the Cardinal, though, may have felt even more significant. After all, it has only been six weeks since Head Coach Lane Kiffin was fired and a proud program was left in disarray. USC AD Pat Haden tabbed Ed Orgeron as the Trojans' interim Head Coach to handle the remaining eight games. No one outside of the USC locker room expected much. The team was 0-2 in Pac-12 play and Orgeron's previous history as a Head Coach -- three rough seasons in the SEC at Ole Miss, where he won three conference games ...
I have no idea how USC is only Besides a four-point loss to Notre Dame, this Trojan team over the past eight weeks has been as good or better than any team from 5-15. They're playing like the top-10 team so many people expected to see before the season, especially now that they have competent leadership in the easy to root for Ed Orgeron. Seriously... I don't know if I could have rooted for USC last night if Kiffin was still Head Coach. With wins over Colorado and UCLA coming up, and the inevitable shuffling to happen ahead of them in the polls, Oregon could play a top-10 team in the Pac-12 title game. But, USC needs UCLA to beat ASU next week. The Sun Devils control its own destiny, and I don't see the woeful Wildcats putting up much of a fight in the Sun Devils' final game. I can't wait to see how the Pac-12 shakes out.
The USC Trojans beat the No. 4 Stanford Cardinals on Saturday night. With that win, interim Head Coach Ed Orgeron might have earned the vacant Head Coaching job with the Trojans. “Coach O needs to be here next year … … Continue reading → [ 289 more words. ]
After an upset Stanford, Ed Orgeron is the only choice to coach USC.
With USC's big upset yesterday, is Ed Orgeron still just the "interim coach" at USC or is he the leading candidate to replace Lane Kiffin-Scott
Ed Orgeron as the next Rutgers coach?
After seeing the change and progress he has made with the program USC would be stupid not to make Ed Orgeron the permanent Head Coach.
We're here live with Ed Orgeron after USC's big win over Stanford. Coach, you have to be really excited after a game like that, right?
Congrats Ed Orgeron. Looks like you won the USC coaching job.
Would love to see Ed Orgeron interview Nick Marshall! That'd be more muttering and jibberish than Billy Madison at the dinner table!
My top three Coach of the Year candidates has changed a bit. They are now Gus Malzahn (same), David Cutcliffe (up), and Ed Orgeron (new).
If you didn’t watch the Stanford-USC game like I told you to, you missed a great one! You also missed seeing the game that will probably end all of the ‘David Shaw for NFL Head Coach’ talk (including mine!), at least for another year. And if you are a USC fan, you are probably wondering ‘what could have been’ if Pat Haden had of decided to replace Lane Kiffin before the season started rather then waiting until he had irreparably damaged it. And you are also wondering where Ed Orgeron is going to figure in the ‘coaching search’ that will begin at USC after this season is over with. My take: He certainly will, but he won’t wind up with the ‘brass ring’ after it’s all over. What’s the biggest problem for him? The fact that when he was the Head Coach of Mississippi he only managed to take them to a 10-25 record, and there is no question that the Program at Old Miss has improved substantially since he left. Also keep in mind that USC is one of the choicest Head Coaching jobs in ...
if USC and Pat Haden DON'T hire Ed Orgeron as their football coach, after last night's win over Stanford, what does THAT say to the kids in the program?
I'm not a USC fan but I think Ed Orgeron should be offered the Head Coaching job.
Neither team failed to scored a touchdown in the Fourth Quarter until the last few seconds when Coach Ed Orgeron brings in Andre Heidari for the game winning field goal and USC ruins Stanford's chance of a Pac-12 North Division title. 20-17 was the final score.
"This is unbelievable," said the 50-year-old Robinson, as tears welled up in his eyes. "I am so proud of these guys and this team." Robinson, the USC running backs coach, has grown close to Orgeron, and took the moment to campaign for the former defensive line coach to become the Trojans' permanent Head Coach. "Ain't no doubt in my mind that Ed Orgeron should be named USC's Head Coach, and I don't care who hears me," said Robinson. "No man on this planet can make these kids play harder than he can. We got 50 kids on scholarship playing like they are and like they did tonight against that team? This guy is phenomenal." USC Trojans 4 Life !
There is a lot of talk this week about bullying in football. The biggest bullies did the usual pushing around. And 1 or 2 bullies got punched in the mouth. Not to worry. I won't take your lunch money as long as you read my Top 10: 1. Ohio State may be going to Pasadena after all. But they'll be gone by the time the Championship game starts. 2. That's why you're Temple. 3. It's better to be lucky than good. Ask Auburn. 4. The only person that can keep Jameison Winston under 300 yds is Jimbo Fisher. 5. You can not contain Alabama. You may only hope to bore them to death. 6. Ed Orgeron just lost his title. At least the interim part. 7. Notre Dame was a 7 point underdog this week. And they had a bye. Via Marcus Jordan. 8. Ohio State better lose soon. SEC fans are really getting sick of being wrong about them. 9. The road to the ACC Championship has always gone through Duke. For the first time, it's not in basketball. 10. Baylor only won by 29. Quick. Everyone scoff and call them overrated.
Dear Pat Haden: please hire Ed Orgeron full time. The man has earned it.
The USC Trojans ultimately departed with the dramatic Lane Kiffin on September 29 after dropping to 3-2, naming Ed Orgeron as the interim Head Coach. Since then
The Stanford/USC game last night definitively put to bed two topics: a one-loss Stanford team will not edge out an undefeated Ohio State and/or Baylor & Lane Kiffin is an *** Ed Orgeron is 5 & 1 with the same underachieving team that allowed the Sun Devils to score 62 points in Kiffin's final game. After failing with the Raiders, Tennessee & USC, please do not give Kiffin another significant Head Coaching job until he proves his worth at a mid-major or lower school.

Hats off to Ed Orgeron at USC! Takes a real man to fix everything Lane Kiffin broke. Give him a contract NOW!!
Know he didn't do to well at Ole Miss but Ed Orgeron has got USC playing some ball right now! How do you not hire him to be permanent Head Coach now?
Ed Orgeron goes from d-line coach to national coach of the year candidate in 6 weeks. I love this country.
I see Ed Orgeron is making big things happen at Southern Cal. Didnt realize he was from Larose. Nice!
Come on Pat Haden. You gotta take the interim title off of Ed Orgeron.
I think USC should just hire Ed Orgeron as their new coach. What a turn around since Lane Kiffin was fired! Fight on!
TOP FIVE Things About WEEK 12: 1- Let's see, how are those fired Ole Miss coaches doing now? - David Cutcliffe has Duke at 8-2 & just got a Gatorade bath. - Ed Orgeron is 5-1 at USC, just beat No. 4 Stanford 2- And here I was thinking Georgia's season couldn't get any more snakebitten. 3- I'm convinced more and more that some famous assistant coaches just aren't wired to be Head Coaches: - Florida's Will Muschamp - Hawaii's Norm Chow - Kansas' Charlie Weis - Nebraska's Bo Pelini 4- I don't know what is more impressive, Duke being in control of the Coastal Division or the fact that Kenny Cook went to see them beat Miami in person. (American hero) 5- Biggest reoccurring theme this year: Game announcers saying, "So-and-so was originally at School A but was dismissed from the team for disciplinary reasons, spent a year at Junior College, and is now a starting QB at School B."
The USC/UCLA rivalry game just got a whole lot more competitive and a whole lot more important for Ed Orgeron who has already clinched a Head Coaching job somewhere next year.
ESPN Video: Final Verdict: Mark May and Lou Holtz debate whether Ed Orgeron deserves to be considered the front-runner for the Head Coaching job at USC.
C.E.O. Coach Ed Orgeron Mr. Haden let's drop the interim and get back to recruiting! FIGHT oergerON
Looks like ole Ed Orgeron and David Cutliffe are doing quite well at their current schools,maybe it wasn't the coaching
I've made fun on Ed Orgeron a lot in the past.but I'm going to tip my hat off to him. 6-1 as interim coach at USC and tonight beat no 5 Stanford!
Ed Orgeron is the new Pete Carroll. Make him the permanent coach, USC!!!
Nice to see Jon Martin on the sidelines at the SC/Stanford game, since he has all that free-time after walking out on his teammates a few weeks ago. Also, if Pat Haden doesn't hire Ed Orgeron - he is just plain dumb.
What a great win!!! Hats off to our next permanent Head Coach, Ed Orgeron!!! And kudos to Lee Corso, who's 21-0 in games involving USC!!! Fight On!!!
U.S.C. has their new Head Coach Ed Orgeron! The Search is OVER! FIGHT ON!
Stanford DOMINATED oregon and we just beat stanford. Can only mean 2 things : ed orgeron just landed himself the permanent Head Coaching gig at sc and USC'S BACK!
Mark my words, USC will win out... ASU will get beat by UCLA next week, and USC will go to Pac-12 championship at 10-3...if that happens, there's no way you can let Ed Orgeron go... No way
What we learned today in college football. FSU and Alabama are going to the BCS title game barring letdowns against their in state rivals or their conference title games. Va Tech and Stanford cant seem to follow up after big wins and win games they are suppose to win but. Duke and Baylor can? Texas is in trouble Oklahoma State is my Big 12 pick to win it they will beat Baylor. Auburn is back folks...but they won't beat Bama. And the guy who is the current interim Head Coach at USC Ed Orgeron. Give him the contract to coach their he can recruit and coach. They have gone 4-1 since they fired Lane "loser"Kiffin
Good day for the ducks, but they still have to beat Arizona and Oregon State play in the PAC 12 championship. Also... I think USC is crazy if they don't hire Ed Orgeron after what he's done for that team this season.
USC and interim coach Ed Orgeron keep rolling with win over Stanford, more late Snap Judgments
No question about it USC has found it's Head Coach, congratulations Ed Orgeron. Thank you for defeating Stanford, gee, I hate that stupid tree.
In a little over a month, USC interim Head Coach Ed Orgeron has taken over the wheel of a sinking ship and transformed it into a state-of-the-art cruise liner. If he can add victories over No...
Pat hayden please keep ed orgeron! Greatest sideline interviews ever! Hes the coach from waterboy but he has team and fans believing again!
I keep hearing that we shouldn't call for Les Miles' head unless we have a suitable alternative. I offer Ed Orgeron. Thank you.
Great win by USC tonight FIGTH ON! There is no reason that Ed Orgeron should not be the new Head Coach of USC. FIGTH ON!
