UTEP head football coach Mike Price is set to announce his retirement on Monday afternoon after spending thirty-one years as a college football head coach.
Price, who holds a 48-60 record in nine seasons as Miners head coach, has posted a 131-138 record as a FBS coach in his stints at Washington State and UTEP. Price infamously held the Alabama head coaching job for five months in 2003 before an off-the-field incident cost him the job before he ever coached a game for the Crimson Tide. [Read more »]

Tennessee athletic director Dave Hart announced on Sunday afternoon that Volunteers head coach Derek Dooley has been relieved of his duties effective immediately. Volunteers offensive coordinator Jim Chaney will serve as interim head coach for the season-ending game against Kentucky.

Western Michigan athletic director Kathy Beauregard announced today that the school has relieved head football coach Bill Cubit of his duties, one day after the Broncos finished the 2012 season with a 4-8 record.
Cubit, who took over as Broncos head coach in 2005 after a two year stint as Stanford offensive coordinator, posted a 51-47 record at Western Michigan and led the Broncos to three bowl games in his eight seasons as head coach.
Western Michigan experienced a great deal of success under Cubit’s leadership, but the team’s inability to make the most of their pre-season hype over the past few years—they were often picked to win the MAC West, which they never accomplished—along with the team’s 29-23 loss to an Eastern Michigan team that came into the game with a 1-9 record ultimately cost Cubit his job.

This Saturday, October 27th is the day that the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party kicks off again between the #2 Florida Gators and the #10 Georgia Bulldogs, pitting two fierce rivals against each other yet again.
Rivalries in college football are like popcorn at the movies: it’s a huge part of what makes the whole experience so enjoyable. However, I think the scope of a “rivalry game” isn’t quite narrow enough, so I feel the need to set the record straight. [Read more »]
