    If we have a losing season McDermott's job should be in jeopardy.

    absolutely. After the last two games, if he got fired tonight along with chizik and pollard I wouldn't shed a tear. The three of them have torpedoed our sports programs for at least a decade.

    Not while Pollard is AD (and I don't see him being gone anytime soon). If Pollard fires him, it makes him look bad. If Pollard fires him, it will be after McDermott has had 5 years to get all of his own players here. I think Pollard's job is pretty secure right now so I don't see it. While the products on the field aren't good by any means, losing your head football coach to Auburn won't hurt Pollard much. His improvements to Jack Trice, planned improvements to Hilton, and basketball practice facility hold a lot of weight. Additionally, most other sports are on the rise (see cross country, track & field, volleyball, etc.)

    Maybe Roy Williams will retire and UNC will hire McDermott.

    If core players leave the program at the end of the season. If player turnover has been like the last 3 years we will never have a winning program.

    Pollard's job is not in jeopardy. I'd be willing to bet on it.

    McDermott won't see any heat this year. Next year the heat will be turned up very high assuming we end up around .500 or below this season. No way in hell he sees year 5 unless things change.

    well his loyalty definitely is. I was a big supporter but this chizik ******** and mcdermitt not being able to coach himself out of a junior high game has me wishing he would just leave.

    Lets deal with one coaching crisis at a time- it's a long time till we finish this season, we can talk about this when the time comes.
