From @CliftonOftedahl: In the "what have you done for me lately?" world of NCAAFB, is anyone under more pressure to win in 2012 than Mack Brown?
Yes, Derek Dooley and Frank Spaziani immediately come to mind as guys who desperately need improvement. Mack Brown won a BCS title at Texas. The Longhorns, despite their youth at QB last year, took a step forward after that disastrous 2010. I expect Texas to take another step forward this fall. I think Dooley has a good shot to get to eight wins with the experience and firepower the Vols have back on offense to save his job. But they need to finally start beating some good teams. I suspect if UT beats NC State and Florida early, that will calm things down around Knoxville. Lose again to Florida, especially with these Gators in rebuilding mode and Dooley's got major problems.
I think it's even bleaker for Spaziani and BC. That program has fallen apart under him with all sorts of staff chemistry issues. Oregon State's Mike Riley and Cal's Jeff Tedford also are on the hot seat this fall as well. Maryland's Randy Edsall had a train-wreck of a debut season, but unless he goes 2-10 again, or say 3-9, he probably gets at least a Year III.
