I am tempted to call this Firing Day. All three speakers on today’s slate have felt the heat the past two seasons. And two come into this season with a make-it-or-break-it mandate: Derek Mason and Gus Malzahn. I’m not entirely sold that last year’s miracle season in Lexington repeats itself either. An ugly regression to the 5-game mean for Mark Stoops could spell an end to his time at BBN, as well.
So, enjoy this trio. At least one, and perhaps as many as all three, won’t be back next year barring a miracle.
Thursday, July 17 (all times eastern)
- Derek Mason, Vanderbilt (10 a.m.-10:30 a.m.)
- Mark Stoops, Kentucky (11:20 a.m.-11:50 a.m.)
