Can you imagine college football taking a big enough place in your life to donate millions to hiring and firing guys after a year and a half? What a miserable existence. Like, if I had that kind of money, I don't know that I'd give two ***** about college football. I'd be too busy doing cool ****.
When you’re rich enough, cool **** includes bending the fortunes of others to your whims.

Reasons CMC to not be interested in Florida State job-

1.) Fisher left because they were way behind on facilities
2.) There is a new separate Booster Club that controls the flow of donor money to the AD, part of the problem. 3.) ESPN article talks about the involvement of the boosters in hiring the coach.
4.) The President of the University and the AD, who came from FSU administration when the last guy quit, are not expected to be there longer than 3 years. (Again per the ESPN article on the front page of their web site.)

Why would any coach with options want to walk into those problems? It will be a complete mess!

Yes, but this really isn't a factor at ND as a number of the HCs from Ara on have not been Catholic.
It's not a factor in hiring...but could absolutely be a factor in the attraction for a practicing Catholic.

I'm not worried in the slightest about Matt taking the FSU job. I AM worried about the potential dominos / coaching carousel if ND & Michigan come open.

If I were Brian Kelly and FSU made a decent $$$ offer I'd take it. He's come close at ND but he's not winning a championship there. Plus he has the gravitas to be straight with the FSU admin and boosters and run the program his way...including demanding that they improve facilities.

Just read that Bob Stoops stuff also. Reports are he was in Tallahassee yesterday. That would be fun. I like when Florida State and Miami are good even though I am not a fan of either. Miami will never be that good again in my opinion. When they got rid of the Orange bowl. It was over.

I don't know why any coach would want to take a job where the AD shows that little patience.
1.) Good coaches generally all have confidence they won’t be an epic failure, particularly at a place like FSU.
2.) If they’re wrong, they get paid $20 million. If they’re looking for their last job, then there’s no downside

Which is why i am cool with new taxes on the mega wealthy. I dont think most of us understand this level of money, theres not many who achieve it
