Could envision a coaching carousel of sorts across college football

Starting with Texas, who has just about run out of patience with the underachievement on the field and in recruiting under Tom Herman. They've got the brand and $$$ to lure Urban Meyer, should he want to get back into coaching. If Mack Brown has enough juice to coach again, Meyer surely can too.

Penn State is winless and off to its worst start in program history, dating back to 1887. That, and off field allegations have put Franklin at risk in a big way. Luke Fickell has Cincinnati in the top 10, played at Ohio State, has understanding of Big 10 football, and thus could be a good fit at PSU.

South Carolina position is open, but are paying Muschamp $13.2M to go away so not sure they've got the stomach for paying top line $$$ for new coach. Steve Sarkisian has rehabbed his image as Bama OC after stints at brand name Pac 12 schools Washington and SoCal. He should have a good feel for SEC football and recruiting, and what it takes to develop a championship level program. I think he would fit better than Hugh Freeze at Liberty, unless escort service calls are included in his contract.

If Daisey gets bounced from VT, that would put Herman and Franklin in the mix along with others. Franklin served as coach in waiting at UMD under Fridge, and was head coach in SEC (Vandy) in addition to Big 10 at PSU. Not sure Herman is a better fit.

We'll see but there's a sense something will happen.
