Interesting list. Some I agree with, some I don't.
Your college football coach will not be your college football coach forever.

I definitely think Jimbo Fisher could survive a 6-6 year. I think the probability of his being fired after 6-6 would be about 30%, not the 87% they've got.
I don't know goog? I mean an FSU 6-6 season means there are MAJOR problems. It means his players aren't being developed, coaches aren't coaching well, and we are losing a lot of games to vastly less talented teams.
I don't. I believe higher level boosters are already a bit perturbed by Fisher.
I doubt he gets fired for going 6-6 after going 12-2, ACCC, and BCS win. Especially after we had to replace 6 coaches. Lost our 3 best D-linemen and starting QB. The author is giving too much credit into Bud Elliott's belief that the boosters/FSU Admin and Jimbo don't get along.
One of the reasons that % is so high for some is because that season would be such a shock. It would take mass hysteria and injuries for FSU to go 6-6.
This list lost all credibility when he put Nick Saban at anything above 0%.
Granted I know that he said that no coach got 0%, but Saban is not getting fired if he has 1 season where he goes 6-6. Now, 6-6 might put him on the hot seat a little bit for next season, but he isnt getting canned after this season for that.
I can't believe they don't have Saban as one of the 10% group. I know it would seem impossible to go 6-6 with his group of players, but a guy who won 3 titles in 4 years ain't going to get fired after one season without some major scandal, no matter what his record is.
Beat me to it
the probability of a 6-6 season for FSU is probably between 0-1%
Saban could go 0-12 and not have a chance of getting fired. If Jimbo went 6-6 I would lose all faith in his guidance and if he didn't win the national championship after then he would have to go.
Ah, perfect time for me to re-post my metric, for anyone who missed it...
2013 is Jimbo's make-or-break season... because if go along way towards revealing where our improvements have come from.
Game day coach + technique coaching vs. Improved Recruiting
0 losses = Time to raise him to Saban levels
1 loss = Jimbo can no longer be questioned, he is now a top tier coach... both in recruiting + coaching... deserves raise
2 losses = Jimbo did a damn good job in a staff turnover/rebuilding year... deserves raise... close to unfirable for 3-years
3 losses = minimum acceptable, defer judgement
4 losses = Most of the gains we have made are recruiting... our coaching is lacking
5 losses = Vast majority of the gains we have made are recruiting... our coaching is severely lacking, we need to start evaluating our options
6 losses = All of the gains we have made are recruiting... our coaching has not improved, we need to fire Jimbo
*If 2 of our losses come to double-digit underdogs, add +1 more loss to the assessment.
For some, the appropriate conclusions are summed up as follows:
0 losses: No comment
1 loss: Trickett sucks
2 losses: Trickett sucks
3 losses: Trickett sucks
4 losses: Trickett sucks
5 losses: Trickett sucks
6 losses: Trickett sucks
Sometimes I even catch myself falling into this group. One can laugh at oneself, no?
6 losses gets you way past Trickett's failings at FSU. Jimbo would not survive 6-6.
Perfectly reasonable! I expect to see a top 5 Nole team get off the bus in Arlington in 2014 so the 2-3 loss season is my expectation
But who was USC
It would take a perfect storm but it is 100% possible.
Add Al Golden to the list. The Tie Dies!
FSU will not go 6-6...but that would get him fired....7-8 wins would be an interesting discussion if he could survive that.
