Daily Poll: Which College Coach is on the Hottest Seat After Week One?


Week one of the college football season has come and gone. There were some big wins and some pretty big upsets. Those upsets, however, can lead to coaches putting their job in jeopardy and then eventually fired if they can't turn it around.

Jeremy Pruitt at Tennessee had Georgia State on the docket for their season opener at home. It was supposed to be a cake walk for the Vols but when you let a team you're supposed to beat hang around, eventually you get beat. And that's what happened. Tennessee gave up over 200 yards on the ground on the way to losing 38-30 to the Panthers of Georgia State at home.

Willie Taggart at Florida State came out of the gates swinging. The Noles forced an opening drive turnover against Boise State and then turned that into a touchdown and looked to have turned things around from last year. James Blackmon hit some big passes and at the half, FSU was up 31-19. The 31 points for FSU would be all that they score has Boise State scored 17 unanswered second half points and the Noles defense gave up over 600 yards of total offense to the Broncos en route to a 36-31 loss at home.

Charlie Strong at South Florida started out last season 7-0 and landed the Bulls in the Top 25. That was short lived as the Bulls would lose their final six games to close out the season. New year, much of the same losing for USF as they get pounded at home 49-0 at the hands of Wisconsin. The Bulls could only muster a 1.1 yards per carry average (23 carries, 26 yards) while giving up a 5.4 ypc (43 carries, 234 yards and four touchdowns) on the ground.

Will Muschamp at South Carolina on the road in the battle of Carolinas takes the loss as the Gamecocks would fall to North Carolina 24-20. Muschamp's team in the second half gets outscored 18-7 and also gave up touchdown drives of 98 and 95 yards respectively. North Carolina rushed for over 230 yards in the game as they win Mack Brown's debut.
