Hot Seat?!?

Now I might not have my definition of "The Hot Seat" correct, so please, let me know if I have this wrong. The Hot Seat would be a coach that has the program, fans, and sometimes players letting him know that each win/loss determines whether he keeps his job. We've seen many of coaches over the past year or so on the hot seat (e.g.,, and our all-time favorite But for some unkown reason, CoachesOnTheHotSeat has Nick Saban on their list at #4. How can this be? Saban could go 7-5 this year and no one would even think to slap him on the hand, much less start rumors that he needs booted.

Ty Willingham, Joe Glenn, Kirk Ferentz, and Mike Stoops all seem like good candidates to be sitting on the dreaded hot seat, but Saban? How can a coach that is being reported by CBS Sports as in the Top Ten of the Best of the Best active coaches be on the Hot Seat?

By the way, it's still a good site, just might not have the right idea. Check out the good stats and such.

Saban is definitely not on the hot seat. The only thing that will get him there is if he loses to Auburn...he would have to have a stellar 2009 season to make people forget about that loss...then beat them in '09 of course. We'll beat them this year none of the above matters.

Saban could take my mom out for a nice seafood dinner and never call her back....and he still wouldn't be on the hot seat to me.
