This FSU thing is getting annoying, hopefully it ends up good.
I wouldn't mind seeing James Franklin leave the Big 10 East. He's been far more successful and resilient than I thought he would be. He will be expensive for FSU, but I could see him wanting to get away from the competitive Big 10 East division.

Franklin's about to get a payraise/extension from Penn State. He's only leaving for USC, if any program, at this time.

Wow. Just burned out, it seems? Regardless, DC Jimmy Lake is taking over.

Washington coach Chris Petersen will step down after the Huskies' bowl game and be replaced by defensive coordinator Jimmy Lake, the school announced Monday.

As part of the shocking announcement, the school said Petersen will transition into a "leadership advisory role" within the athletic department.

background on the odd duck

But Petersen always tried to coach in a more humane manner than those in the profession who famously slept in the office and ignored all other aspects of their lives. His outlook was honed by his young son’s battle with pediatric cancer, which imbued him with a strong sense of perspective that there was more to life than wins and losses.

Petersen always insisted that his assistant coaches go home at dark. He wanted them to have balance, too. And he was facing an excruciating decision on the future of an assistant coach he loves and admires in beleaguered Husky offensive coordinator Bush Hamdan – who played quarterback for Petersen at Boise State

Buzz around Noles is Norvell using the logic that their announcement is pushed back after Championship games and he is only candidate playing in one.

So many crazy rumors though. Some still holding out hope for Stoops and the delay being because he had to attend a friend's funeral.

College Football is nuts.

Back at the UW, from Coach Pete’s press conference today:

At the root of Petersen’s shocking resignation, announced Monday, were two interrelated epiphanies on his part. One was that he had lost an essential passion for the job, exemplified by the joylessness he felt during the Rose Bowl last season.

“You work your whole life to get there,” he mused during a news conference Tuesday. “And I didn’t really appreciate the week. I didn’t appreciate the game like I need to, as a kid growing up looking at that game. And I think that was one of the things that really hit me loud and clear.”
He cited a quote he heard last fall from “an Eastern philosopher” (a Google search revealed it to be Confucious, the Heisman Trophy winner of Eastern philosophers). The words resonated deeply:

A man has two lives to live, and the second one begins when he realizes he only has one.

Anyone have any Norvell takes? Success at Memphis seems good to me but I don’t follow non FSU stuff to closely.

I read something crazy like he has a booze and gambling problem but that was just some twitter comments.
