    Default College football coaching carousel

    Arkansas: Houston Nutt resigned. Butch Davis was the hot rumor until he recently signed a new deal with UNC.

    Georgia Tech: Chan Gailey fired.

    Michigan: Lloyd Carr resigned. Rumors about Les Miles have been circulating for months, but new rumors point to Kirk Ferentz.

    Mississippi: Former USC assistant Ed Orgeron fired.

    Nebraska: Bill Callahan fired.

    Texas A&M: Dennis Franchione resigned. Mike Sherman (former Packers head coach, current Texans assistant) hired.

    UCLA: Karl Dorrell of course is a huge question mark. I would expect he'll be canned on Dec. 3.

    Should be quite a few more axes to fall in the next week.

    He's going to have a ton of talent with him. Orgeron might have been an average head coach but he's an ace recruiter.

    USC would be smart to try and bring him back, especially with all the ties Orgeron has in the South now.

    I am going to miss EDSBS endlessly satirizing Orgeron.

    you know what is going to happen.

    UCLA will beat USC, and Arizona will beat ASU. UCLA will end up in the Rose Bowl.

    Dorrell will get another year.

    Carroll is backing up Dorrell... and you know what that means.

    On these matters, though, you would think Carroll would be considered an expert.

    "I think he's done a fantastic job," Carroll said. "I think they have had the issues that can stagger a program with the quarterback situation that they have had, let alone other injuries that they have had."

    Carroll ticked off the names of the teams across the nation that have lost their starting quarterbacks at times, including his own, and how they have all suffered.

    "I think they have gone to a couple levels beyond where most teams go where you have to go to your backup quarterback," Carroll said. "To have to suffer through that back and forth, they found ways to win and created an opportunity to win when a lot of other teams wouldn't have. . . . He's found a way to keep his team together."

    I asked, of course, just as you would, whether Carroll was praising Dorrell just to keep him around because it'd be the best thing for USC in the long run.

    He said no, which is understandable after Dorrell's team cost the Trojans a chance to play for a national title last year.

    "It's not a coach's fault guys get hurt," Carroll said. "It's almost too much to ask when things happen like that."

    Carroll talked about the injury to John David Booty and how it affected the Stanford game, and the fact the Trojans had to take on Oregon with a backup quarterback.

    "I think it's a fact [Dorrell] has been up against extraordinary odds," Carroll said, "and we understand what it's like."

    The best sign I saw from Saturday's games was "Colorado supports Bill Callagan"

    Better than the Mark Mangino "Fat Bastard" signs on GameDay?

    $20 says if USC wins on Saturday that the Trojan fans start chanting some form of "Keep Dorrell".
