While Jon Embree’s firing at Colorado came down to the lack of success over two years, college football is now down one more minority coach.

ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith said Tuesday he couldn’t defend Embree on his record, but his firing again brings to the spotlight the lack of chances minority coaches have gotten in college football.

“The reality of the situation is, let’s take a couple of things into consideration. The man lost by an average of 48-17,” Smith said on Sportscenter. “Didn’t win a home game for the first time in school history since 1920. Those things resonate.

What’s Your Opinion?


My personal experience tells me it all depends on what aspect of the programs you’re looking at. Whether its sponsorship, travel schedule,levels of competition, uniforms, sneakers, relationships with college coaches,and fundraising opportunities.

The more visible programs in The DMV such as Team Takeover and DC Assault have major sponsonships deals in place, so they can afford to play in the better tournaments,get free sneakers, uniforms,and warmups without passing on the cost to the parents,so they tend to attract the better players.Baltimore’s Finest Under Armour,Team Sizzle, Baltimore Elite and Crusader Nation,are a few programs in the Baltimore area that are in the same position as the sponsored teams from DC. On the other hand, non-sponsored teams such as Team Future and Maryland 3D, consistently compete at the highest level as the sponsored teams, play in the same tournaments, send just as many kids to college on scholarships, and attract some of the better talent in the area without the backing of a national sponsor. These are my thoughts, what do you think?

Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless discuss Morehead State coach Sean Woods’ on-court treament of senior point guard Devon Atkinson.  Stephen A. Smith gives him the business.  How do you think this should have been handled? Sean Woods need some couch time, seriously somebody need to check under his hood regarding managing his anger.  Think about it, the kid showed more restraint and sportsman professionalism than the damm Coach. Go figure!

Two years ago, Gene Chizik coached Auburn to the BCS national championship. On Sunday, Chizik was fired by the school, a source told CBS.

The Tigers finished the season 3-9 after getting hammered by arch-rival Alabama on Saturday, 49-0. The loss dropped Auburn to 0-8 in SEC play. The team was ranked No. 25 in the preseason.Players were scheduled to be informed of the situation at a team meeting at 1 p.m. CT.
In four seasons at Auburn, Chizik was 33-19. Only once in his four years did the Tigers finish in the Top 25 — in 2010, when they won the title by going 14-0 behind Heisman winner Cam Newton.

Chizik’s buyout reportedly is $7.5 million on Dec. 1. Earlier in the week, Yahoo! reported that the Tigers’ football program is being investigated by the NCAA. | Hang Time Blog
