Gary Barnett VIP Club Update

The Gary Barnett Club is only for the select few in college football who ABSOLUTELY stink at coaching football. If you've missed the past few installments, you can catch up with the updates HERE and HERE. If you don't feel like clicking the links, Dawgola and I selected five coaches each to try and see how bad our "team" of coaches could be. It's almost like fantasy football, only those who perform the worst are awarded the most points.

Now that you're clear on how the club works, lets get to the teams.


  • Ralph Friedgen, Maryland Terrapins -- Well, the Terps are 4-1 and it looks like at least Fridge will keep his job this season. Clemson, who is 2-3, is an early 14.5 point favorite in Death Valley this weekend, so even if UM's AD doesn't realize he sucks Vegas does.
  • Dan Hawkins, Colorado Buffaloes -- Colorado is a terrible, terrible team and yet they beat the Dawgs a week-and-a-half ago. They really bounced back this weekend with a 26-o raping at the hands of Mizzou last Saturday. They're bad, Dan Hawkins is worse, and he likely still won't be fired.
  • Mike Sherman, Texas A&M -- The Aggies are 3-2 and look to be a pretty good team. The only thing that looks more painful than Jerrod Johnson's throwing motion, however, is well- nothing. They're favored by 3.5 at home against a ranked Mizzou team this week, and it looks like a good opportunity for a win.
  • Rich Rodriguez, Michigan Wolverines -- Despite a loss at home to Sparty last weekend, DickRod is off the hot seat for at least a little while for two reasons: 1. Denard, 2. Robinson.
  • Ron Zook, Illinois Fighting Illini -- The Zooker will probably end up hanging his hat for at least another year at Illinois. The Illini outgunned Penn State last week at Happy Valley and are only a 7 point road dog at Michigan State this Saturday. The rest of their schedule is a complete joke and unless they drop several of those games unexpectedly, Ron will be rocking in Champagne again next year. 
  • Paul Wulff, Washington State Cougars -- Definitely the best pick of the draft. If you want to know the lines that have been set on the Cougars last four games: +24, +22, +23.5, +36.5. This week the Cougars are at home and a 23.5 point dog against Arizona. Wow, nuff said.
  • Mario Cristobol, Florida International Golden Panthers -- Mario isn't Super in this case. The Panthers are 1-4 and have looked terrible doing it. I don't see how they can keep this guy.
  • Les Miles, Louisiana State University Tigers -- We all know about the Mad Hatter. He is the biggest doofus and possibly the "Most Interesting Man in College Football". He's 6-0 and I can understand why people want to fire him. It's insane that a guy that could double for Homer Simpson can coach a team and beat Florida.
  • Neil Callaway, University of Alabama Birmingham Blazers -- Lost by 35 at Central Florida on Saturday. Callaway is 1-4 and on his way to a 3-9 campaign. Looked pretty good against Tennessee, but hey, who wouldn't? 
  • Todd Dodge, North Texas Mean Green -- Mario Cristobol and Todd will have an epic battle this weekend as the two 'Netters square off in Denton, TX. The 1-5 Mean Green look to improve to 2-5 as they are favored by five in what could be the worst college football game of the year. EWWWW, GROSS!
It's pretty obvious that I'm in the lead here. It's not a stretch to say four of the five picks I selected won't be around come January. Looks like a win for me this week. Best of luck next week Dawgola.
