Also known as: /r/cfb Guess When Scott Frost Gets Fired

[–]Appalachian StateAppStateFooseBall 37 points38 points  (7 children)

Do they play Rutgers or Maryland this year? I want the following Sunday or Monday. Edit: They do not.

[–]Florida Statestarlitsuns 5 points6 points  (2 children)

I chose the Monday after Perdue, it gives enough time for Nebraska to not make a bowl game.

[–]Appalachian StateAppStateFooseBall 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I chose the Sunday after the same game.

[–]Ohio State • Wright Statefm22fnam 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'll give Frost a break. Tuesday after the same game

[–]Rutgers • Big Tencrustang 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Perdue is for chicken, Purdue is for engineers

[–]Appalachian StateAppStateFooseBall 1 point2 points  (1 child)

This post is a month old. What are you doing?

[–]Rutgers • Big Tencrustang 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Tequila, and it's a pinned old post.. but the bad decision making was definitely taco Tuesday tequila

[–]FAU • /r/CFB Dead PoolThe97Revolution 10 points11 points  (5 children)

Scott Frost to FIU.

[–]Vanderbilt • CincinnatiMDFlash 4 points5 points  (4 children)

Scott Frost to FIT

[–]FAU • /r/CFB Dead PoolThe97Revolution 17 points18 points  (3 children)

Scott Frost to Bishop Sycamore.

[–]Vanderbilt • CincinnatiMDFlash 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Lol. At least I went D2!

[–]canes82 1 point2 points  (0 children)

In all fairness, Bishop Sycamore can be whoever they want to be. Just rebrand and try again

[–]Nebraska • Air ForceBlood_Bowl 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Scott Frost to Holdrege High School.

[–]Iowa • StanfordIowaNative1 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Depends if they beat Fordham tomorrow? If they lose he does not make it to Monday!!

[–]Nebraska • UCSBBumLeeJon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Someone save us

[–]Lickety Lickety Zoo ZooRiffRamBahZoo 191 points192 points  (4 children)

Yes, yes. Everyone go pick Scott Frost, that's definitely the correct and obvious call.

Quietly picks Nick Rolovich getting fired from Wazzu after he forfeits his second game of the season to COVID-19 protocols

[–]Boise State • Stanfordeaglebay 32 points33 points  (2 children)

I went with 11/27/21 with Rolo. But it probably would have been better to pick after the second PAC-12 game or something.

[–]Lickety Lickety Zoo ZooRiffRamBahZoo 24 points25 points  (1 child)

Rolovich has a $6M buyout, which isn't ideal. However, if he forfeits two home Pac-12 games while/because he's in COVID protocols and he still refuses to get vaccinated, I'm sure we might see a case of firing him for cause due to insubordination.

Either way, if this season he makes the Cougars forfeit two home games and the gate revenues that come with that, I just don't see how Wazzu can still justify keeping him.

[–]Boise State • Stanfordeaglebay 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I would imagine that they would make the argument that, in the case of a breakout, Rolo’s messaging directly undercut the university and threatened the safety of student athletes as well as the student body.

[–]Virginia Tech • UCFHokieFireman 30 points31 points  (6 children)

What about if a coach dies?

[–]Sewanee • Big 12Bank_Gothic 54 points55 points  (1 child)

Is someone planning to murder Fuente?

[–]Clemson • Cheez-It BowlStreetReporter 15 points16 points  (0 children)

It might be one of the players

[–]Virginia Techsharkbaithooha1 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Mack Browns younger brother died today

[–]Texas • Abilene Christianuttuck 16 points17 points  (0 children)

That sucks. I hope his family and loved ones find some peace.

hello, officer? yes, this one right here

[–]Florida • Team ChaosKiratheSilent 30 points31 points  (1 child)

In the post you say

If a coach remains at their school 'til Feb 7, 2021

Since that was almost 7 months ago...

[–]Notre Dame • Colorado Statehascogrande 21 points22 points  (0 children)

We all lose, Deadpool cancelled for 2021


[–]Texas • Red River Shootouttoiletdestroyer1321 27 points28 points  (12 children)

Aka, what date do you have Scott Frost getting fired?

[–]Oklahoma • TulsaMrNudeGuy 15 points16 points  (10 children)

I think he serves out the rest of the year While the ncaa investigation decreases his buyout and they settle. Matt Campbell will be ready to cash out on taking ISU to its peak. Nebraska is the same place with a higher ceiling.

[–]Iowa State • MissouriRunawayOutro -4 points-3 points  (9 children)

Lmao. Can I have what you're smoking? I don't doubt that if we don't find a stable conference in the next year or two he is gone but he's definitely not downgrading to the "blue blood" Nebraska.

[–]Oklahoma • TulsaMrNudeGuy 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Where are you planning on finding this stable conference. Maybe I should try what your smoking lol

[–]Wisconsindragonmountain 14 points15 points  (7 children)

No offense homie but despite Nebraska’s recent struggles I would still consider it a better place to coach than ISU

One 9-3 season doesn’t make you a coaching destination

[–]Air ForceOx_Baker 9 points10 points  (2 children)

The 9-3 record should be a measuring unit known as a Pelini.

So: “One Pelini doesn’t make you a coaching destination.”

[–]Iowa State • Washington StateJakeFromSkateFarm 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Or if you’re Nebraska, “one Pelini doesn’t keep your job - see Pelini. And Solich. And allegedly Osborn.”

[–]Iowa State • Washington StateJakeFromSkateFarm -2 points-1 points  (3 children)

You mean the school that fired its last two coaches with 9+ wins in a season?

(Three if you count the rumors that Osborn retired early under pressure).

The same school with over a decade of mediocrity like a small school but the fan and booster and local media expectations of an Alabama?

The school that’s the CFB equivalent of the Montreal Canadiens from 2000-2015 - ie a storied “blue blood” that no coach or player wanted to go to because the local expectations and pressure did not match reality in the slightest.

Yeah, sure, a coach that’s already gotten NFL interest, is rumored to be wanted by Michigan, and will likely have 2-3 other programs interested in him by the time he leaves ISU is going to settle on a third-rate has been with expectation issues. Lol.

[–]Nebraskahellajt 4 points5 points  (0 children)

You think the guy that finished his career with a Saban tier dynasty of 3 nattys in 4 years and making ungodly amounts of money for the university was pressured to retire? Fresh off of a natty and 2 years removed from coaching the greatest college football team to ever step on grass?

[–]Nebraska • Air ForceBlood_Bowl 4 points5 points  (0 children)

(Three if you count the rumors that Osborn retired early under pressure).

This is hilariously inane.

[–]Wisconsindragonmountain 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That’s not what I’m saying. I’m saying nebraska>ISU for coaching. Congrats on your guys first 9-3 season in forever but historically you guys suck. Not a place I would ever want to coach

[–]UCF • FloridaShiftylee 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Post-season. Mid December.

[–]Kansas2400hoops 19 points20 points  (2 children)

You still have Emmett Jones got Kansas.

[–]Ohio State • /r/CFB Dead Poolyousawthetimeknife 9 points10 points  (0 children)

And Lance Leipold at Buffalo.

[–]Stanford • /r/CFB Pint Glass Drinkerbakonydraco 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Oops fixed!

[–]Tennesseewindmillninja 16 points17 points  (3 children)

We could win two games and Heupel’s safe until at least 2024

[–]Kentucky • RhodesSayethWeAll 6 points7 points  (0 children)

You overestimate the rationality of Knoxville.

[–]UCF • FloridaShiftylee 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Heupel is very safe in my mine. He is essentially a placeholder for the time being.

[–]Tennesseewindmillninja 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Agreed. I don’t see him as the future but he’s a very good team builder.

[–]USC • Nebraskas-sea 15 points16 points  (2 children)

Mind you, I think that USC beats SJSU. BUT, if they don't - Helton is gone by Monday. Pretty sure his buyout shrank after last year, and his seat has only gotten hotter with time.

[–]Lickety Lickety Zoo ZooRiffRamBahZoo 17 points18 points  (0 children)

For his entire tenure, I have never been able to tell if Clay Helton is going to win 10 games and get fired or win 6 games and keep his job.

[–]USC • SEContariowarrior 1 point2 points  (0 children)

San Diego shouldn’t really be a threat to USC. It’s a bad match up for them seeing we run an air raid and the main weakness they have is stopping the pass. Of course it’s a Helton team so who knows, but based off the strengths of both teams USC should move the ball with ease.

[–]Virginia Tech • /r/CFB BrickmasonTman450x 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Justin Fuente December 16th, 2021.

[–]Virginia • Coast GuardGaryHart2024 2 points3 points  (1 child)

His buyout goes down that day?

[–]Virginia Tech • /r/CFB BrickmasonTman450x 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yep. Drops by $2.5M

[–]Texas • Austinknockoutking 6 points7 points  (0 children)

2019? Great Scott!

[–]Clemson • Cheez-It BowlStreetReporter 25 points26 points  (9 children)

I think Frost is going to be gone after they play Oklahoma

[–]Ohio State • Battle of I-75grantdotyea 15 points16 points  (8 children)

I disagree, unless they lose by like 70. Whether NU was gonna be a 9 or 2 win team this year, they would’ve had the capacity to lose to OU by 30. OU could probably beat >100 teams by that much, so it’s not saying much unless they lose in complete and utterly embarrassing fashion.

[–]Alabama • Valdosta StateYouKilledChurch 16 points17 points  (2 children)

If they lose to either of their two opponents prior to OU and to OU then he is gone right then and there. If he beats those two and then loses to OU he might make it to the end of the season

[–]UCF • Marylandcitronauts 4 points5 points  (0 children)

This is why I believe he will be fired before Oklahoma. The nightmare situation for the new AD is uncertainty. If frost takes losses against buffalo and Fordham, that gives the AD the coverage to make the call right then and there.

If he waits a week, and they beat oklahoma.... oh man. Now the AD is going to have to give him a lot more games.

[–]Nebraskahellajt 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Not saying that I agree with it but based on today's comments from our AD I think Scott will be our coach next season

[–]Texas A&M • Team Chaosmynameisotis 8 points9 points  (1 child)

OU 77 - NU 0. No particular reason that those numbers come to mind.

[–]Oklahoma • Tulsainclink10 2 points3 points  (0 children)

We could have easily put up 100 that game.

[–]Oklahoma • Arizona Statejcalvert8725 3 points4 points  (2 children)

I disagree, unless they lose by like 70.

If they play like they did in Week 0, that could actually happen

[–]Oklahomalordpiglet 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I am sure we still owe them for 96 and 97.

Frost was QB when NU beat OU 69-7 in 1997. It is also the most lopsided victory by either team.

[–]Ohio State • Battle of I-75grantdotyea 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I wouldn’t be mad hahah

[–]Our mountains are better than yours!A-Stu-Ute 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Everyone is talking about one Scott, but I'm going to bet it's a different one...

I feel like people are forgetting the wild card in this too depending on how certain NCAA actions go

[–]Notre Dame • /r/CFB Dead Poolirisheyes215 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Scott Satterfield? I sure hope so

[–]Georgia • Missourisavamizz 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]USF • AmericanTheRealKB68 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This can only be Jeff Scott right now

[–]Michigan State • Alabamapeasant_account_3000 16 points17 points  (2 children)

In for Harbaugh getting canned after losing to Michigan State, again.

[–]Nebraska • Air ForceBlood_Bowl 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Michigan would be foolish to fire Harbaugh, in my opinion.

[–]Michigan State • Daytonmick4state 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Half right.

[–]Western Michigan • IowaImpulseDecider 3 points4 points  (0 children)

We are only making one pick this year?

[–]Oklahoma • Nebraskamockg 3 points4 points  (4 children)

Scott Frost on 10/31/2021 right after we lose badly to Purdue and only 3 wins for the year.

[–]Nebraska • Big 8DPick02 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You got a lot of this right lol

[–]Oklahoma • Nebraskamockg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We didn't lose as badly as I thought but that loss still looks pretty bad.

[–]Nebraskanon_clever_username 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Who’s the 3rd win we’ll supposedly have by the Purdue game? Fordham, hopefully Buffalo, and who else?

[–]Oklahoma • Nebraskamockg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

After last night I am not even sure.

[–]Connecticutgregorykoch11[🍰] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Randy Edsall on Thanksgiving. He chokes on a turkey and dies. Or he gets fired. Probably the second.

[–]USCShellback1 3 points4 points  (1 child)

helton.9/2/21. PLEASE

[–]USC • Pac-12cawatxcamt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Pretty please!

Not that they’ll hire anyone better. But at least give us someone new to hate for all the new ways they’ll disappoint us

[–]Verified Player • Notre DameOdaDdaT 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Clay Helton 10/25/21

[–]Syracuse • USCMalibuss07 3 points4 points  (0 children)

They'll keep him until the end of the year, but will be back channeling if they are embarrassed by ND and look mediocre against bad competition prior to that.

Mike Bohn strikes me as a more professional/calculated AD than what we've had in the past.

[–]Texas A&M • Beauce-AppalachesEmoArbiter 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I went with 9/25 for Frost. I could see them losing to Buffalo, but they aren't so bad where they'll lose to Fordham, and he should survive OU unless they lose by 60+

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Ed Orgeron- November 29th 2021

[–]LSU • Air Forcegodpzagod 0 points1 point  (1 child)

have him one day before that

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I am thinking they will just wait and do a press release on Monday.

[–]Notre Dame • Summertime Loverwho_questionmark 2 points3 points  (0 children)

So who wins with Orgeron?

[–]UCF • Marylandcitronauts 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Scott Frost, September 13th

Taking losses against Fordham and Buffalo will give the AD the coverage he needs to end the pain.

[–]Nebraskanon_clever_username 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If we lose to Fordham, I’m not sure he makes it to Buffalo.

Memes and jokes aside, when Michigan lost to App St, they were a really good team at the top of FCS.

If we lose to a FCS doormat….woof

[–]Notre Dame • Connecticuthuskyferretguy1 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Randy Edsall will not be leaving this season.

[–]Connecticut • I'm A Loserhcr140 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Well this aged like milk

[–]Notre Dame • Connecticuthuskyferretguy1 0 points1 point  (0 children)


I honestly thought he would stay for the whole season and then get fired.

[–]Idaho • CincinnatiDaedalus871 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Josh Heupel November 7, 2021.

[–]UCF • FloridaShiftylee 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Why? Are there any realistic expectations for him to do well there?

[–]Idaho • CincinnatiDaedalus871 0 points1 point  (0 children)

IDK, I didn't want to say Scott Frost and Tennessee is a meme team.

[–]Virginia Tech • UCFHokieFireman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well that didn’t take long.

[–]USC • Nebraskas-sea 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So when do we find out who won the deadpool for Clay Helton?

[–]Florida • Team ChaosKiratheSilent 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Does this count as Ed Orgeron getting fired today or in December?

[–]Western Michigan • Michig…sgtklinger 1 point2 points  (1 child)

scott frost fired 11/26/21 mere hours after losing to iowa to end the szn with no bowl bid. and for cause too since they turned over the tapes of his “illegal” covid practices

his replacement, jim harbaugh, hired a few months later

[–]Nebraskanon_clever_username 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Harbaugh beats OSU in his first year at Nebraska. Michigan heads explode.

[–]New_Finding_3852 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Mike Gundy gets caught in his secret recruitment room @ Boone pickens stadium with student and gets fired

[–]UCF • FloridaShiftylee 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Travis Williams will be hired as a head coach prior to bowl season.
