We've got all the important coaching comments highlighted here at Eye on CFB, we've got Dennis Dodd and Brett McMurphy on site, we've got Tony Barnhart weighing in as well.

Ole Miss I can see, but Georgia is more likely if Richt has another season at or under .500.

Leach It Up

Leach is hanging around the SEC meetings spreading his name around to the AD's in case a coaching job opens up next season.  Most likely jobs to be open:  Ole Miss and Vanderbilt.
