These big programs are just as bad as the NFL now. How in the heck do they expect coaches to build a dynasty through recruiting in two or three seasons? Didn't it take Tom Osbourne at least 10 years as coach at Nebraska before he won anything? With these coach firings, you'd think it's an easy two-year project to turn a team into a dynasty. It's especially troubling when they have such litttle patience for coaches like Willingham who are bringing in entirely new offensive systems and have to recruit as such. Ty Willingham was given squat. His uphill climb was tough if you consider the academic requirements at Notre Dame. Rebuilding that program is going to take a lot longer than they gave Willingham. Living in Central Florida, I was a witness to the Gator fans tearing up Ron Zook. People don't realize how Spurrier let that recruiting program fall apart. Spurrier was lucky to take control of the school after some solid recruiting classes. Zook goes 7-4, ranked #19, beats Florida State and it looks like his players love him by winning out in his last games. They didn't give him more than a few years either to prove anything. Frank Solich won more than 75% of his games at Nebraska and was fired after a 9-3 season. Yeah, Bill Callahan is really tearing it up in Nebraska now, ain't he? I bet they'll end up firing Callahan as sood as he finds the recruits he needs for their new pass-oriented offense. I feel like a Cowboys Zone message board is running these big college football programs with all the "sky is falling" firings.. I guess the fans really are running some of these programs though if they're dishing out the big money.
