On The Hot Seat: Week 3

1. Mike Locksley—Locksley is now 0-3 this season and 1-14 overall. New Mexico’s losses include a 72-0 rout in the opener against Oregon, a train wreck 52-17 loss to Texas Tech, and a 56-14 smack down from Utah. Supposedly, Locksley was hired because he was such a great recruiter. This clown needs to be fired ASAP.
2. Ron Zook—Zook is sitting at 2-1 this season, losing to Missouri and beating Northern Illinois and FCS Southern Illinois. The final verdict will be known when Big Ten play starts. What’s interesting is that Mike Locksley used to be Ron Zook’s offensive coordinator at Illinois. Cancer always spreads.
3. Tim Brewster—Brewster is off to a 1-2 start, highlighted by a loss to FCS South Dakota. Minnesota’s only win was against Middle Tennessee State, sans Dwight Dasher (suspension). Brewster is currently 15-26 as the Golden Gophers’ skipper.
4. Todd Dodge—If you are familiar with what Todd Dodge did as a high school football coach at Westlake Carroll in Texas, then you know he is a great coach. Three games into his fourth season, Dodge’s record is 5-34 (0-3 in 2010). Unfortunately for Dodge, 10 starters are already injured, and he is down to his third-string quarterback.
5. Paul Wulff—Wazzu is 1-2 this season so far. Their only win was against FCS Montana State and barely, 23-22. Paul Wulff has nine conference games to look forward to, and the Cougars will be lucky to win one of them.
6. Rich Rodriguez—He actually looks like he might be able to get off The Hot Seat if things keep going his way. Two things to keep in mind: 1) Michigan will derail if Shoelace gets injured. 2)Michigan started out 4-0 last year only to go 1-7 the rest of the way. Lets wait and see on Dick Rod.
7. Dan Hawkins—Dan Hawkins moves down the list a little bit for beating state rival Colorado State handily and a solid win over Hawaii.  However in Week 2, The Buffs got slaughtered 52-7 by Cal due to their own mistakes—three interceptions and two fumbles.
8. Dennis Erickson—Sure the Sun Devils are 2-1 this season, but both wins came over FCS opponents (Northern Arizona and Portland State). Dennis Erickson has a competitive Pac-10 schedule set to start this Saturday.
9. Ralph Friedgen—The Fridge has already equaled last season’s win tally with a 2-1 record. Maryland got a big win over Navy in their opener in Baltimore. With a weak ACC this year, Friedgen has the opportunity to silence the doubters and get off the hot seat.
10. Butch Davis—With two 30-24 losses and a football program under NCAA investigation, Butch Davis has come under scrutiny. With all the turmoil taking place under Davis’s watch, it may be best to just start with a clean slate in Chapel Hill.
Waiting list: Neil Callaway, Ron English, Mark Richt, Les Miles, Bob Toledo

Off the hot seat: Mike Price

We will revisit On The Hot Seat after Week 5.
