    Sorry if I'm beating a dead horse or if this topic is fatigued - but I figured this could be fun.

    HCCH has clearly hit an all-time low in his approval rating. You'd be hard pressed to find a single USC fan on the planet who supports him as our head coach. If this season takes an ugly turn, as appears likely, it may not be tenable to have him finish the season.

    With that said - I want to propose a game where we predict the date and time of his firing.

    I'll go first - I'll call Sunday morning, 9/29. The Men of Troy lose 3 straight (@BYU, vs. Utah, @UW) and decide to kick this NFL-style with a bye week firing. Folt and co. at least give him the courtesy of a few hours' sleep after landing at LAX, and Clay gets the call first thing Sunday morning. We receive the news shortly thereafter.

    Our previous football coach was fired between the UW and ND games, so it could happen. Being a bye week makes it even better.

    I said on other boards before the season started, he'd be fired the bye week between UW and ND.
    With a 2-3 record.

    An astute prediction. I join you on this given that it’s the most probable as it makes the most sense.

    Just stop the misery already. UGHHH.

    I suspect that this is the correct answer.

    We've had too many midseason firings, I think it will be after the final game.

    The final game of the season once permanent AD is hired.

    Let Gomer go through the whole miserable season , no interim those turds just kiss players asses like Gomer did thinking they will get the HC gig.
    Keep Gomer let him get booed all season long and force him to pretend he is actually working he is so lazy he will want out before ND so he doesn’t have to travel

    I changed my prediction of a tarmac event after ND because there's no AD now. Who's going to fire him? I'm afraid we must tolerate his incompetence until the end of the bloody year now. Hopefully the new AD will be settled in by then.

    The thing is if you keep him you’ll have the optics of an empty coliseum. The question then becomes how much damage can the ‘SC brand take.

    Why stop with the coach? You should also throw out predictions for when Dr. Folt will be fired as well as the new AD.

    Guys we are doomed with this F-tard through this season, if not next season also.

    We are probably stuck with Dufus for the entire season. Let him live with all that stress and we can just laugh at his facial expression on the side lines.

    If Urban Meyer is next coach then who needs a permanent AD in place .. hire AD who fits the Head football coach
    As for when HCCH bites the dust .. the sooner the better
    Last 15 games 7-9.. that is more losses than PC had between 2002 -2008
    Somebody make it stop

    As much as I’d like to see a change TODAY, I think if the season heads in the wrong direction, CCH will finish out the season....

    I think we may be stuck w him til the bitter end but hopefully someone is thinking about recruiting season and we hire someone who may not start till after bowl season. Doubt that’s gonna happen though. I’m hoping if we get to 2-4 when ND sets a record of points against - he gone. Close loss and we are stuck for sure. A win...5 year extension! (Kidding)

    What happenes if UCLA and Chip Kelly part ways within the next 3 weeks?

    Do you really want to let UCLA have first choice?

    Say Meyer does not want to coach after all. UCLA gets Bob Stoops and your stuck with a guy like Rich Franklin a good but not a great HR hire.

    If SC loses the next 3 in a row as expected, the optics will be too bad at 2-4 so the interim AD and new President HAVE to fire the HC. No new coach will be hired until after a permanent AD is hired and they make the selection.
