Repeatin' what I said earlier about the now ex-Wisconsin defensive coordinator: "Well, UW isn't exactly known for their defense, but it is a pretty strong one. His pedigree is probably the snazziest of the three, but other than coaching the next state over, he has no mid-major ties. And why not? Minnesota takes one of theirs, they snap up one of Wisconsin's. In the end, the Curling Belt ends up even-steven."
With three of the 13 schools currently searching for a new football coach, Northern Illinois is the most desirable job. Could Chuck Martin land there, could Kent State bring in an offensive mind, and will Ball State try to hire on name recognition?
