Random coaching carousel guesses
1) Lloyd Carr will announce at the end of this year that he will retire after next year. He's always talked about walking away when it isn't fun anymore. And as much as he's having with these last second victories, you know the losses have been adding up.
2) Joe Paterno retires after this season. The dude is damn near 80 and this is going to be his last chance to go out a winner. Either that or he coaches until he's dead, or hell perhaps even a season or two from beyond the grave. Would anyone in State College even notice the difference?
3) Joe Tiller is G-O-N-E. His act has been wearing thin the last few years in West LaFayette, but taking a team from preseason national title contender to pushing Illinois for 11th place in the conference will end his tenure as a Boilermaker. Resign, fired, whatever. He's done.
4) John L Smith is on the hot seat if MSU's season finishes in the tank. He was supposed to be the guy that got the job done at Louisville and would bring MSU back to challenging Michigan and the Big Ten. Instead, his team looks exactly like something Bobby Williams could have done. And it's pretty hard to look bad when following up Bobby Williams.
