(3-3). 4. 849. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. ACC. Louisville Cardinals. player

If it’s not Scott Satterfield and Jeff Brohm isn’t leaving Purdue, hire Coach Prime

Don’t look now, but Louisville probably needs to make a change at head coach. While Scott Satterfield has a recruiting plan, the on-field results are mediocre at best. Although things have not been the same at U of L since Lamar Jackson won the Heisman Trophy, the Cardinals have too proud of an athletic history to be this pedestrian on the football field for all that much longer here.

Satterfield is 100 percent on the hot seat, but it remains to be seen if Louisville can pry one of its own out of a decent Big Ten job. Former Cardinals quarterback Jeff Brohm has had great success at Purdue. If Satterfield is out, Brohm would be the top candidate for the job. If he says no, then Sanders is an easy second choice. His recruitment and style of play would fit very well at Louisville.

Of course, this would be a great opportunity for Sanders to stick it to his alma mater in ACC play…

Colorado Buffaloes. 857. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. 3. player. Pac-12. (1-5)

Colorado needs someone to make Buffs feel buff again, Sanders would do that

Let’s be real. Unless Colorado decides to hire Trey Parker and Matt Stone as co-coaches, with Squeak “Little B***h” Scolari as their recruiting director, nothing would be more interesting for the Buffaloes football program than hiring Coach Prime. He has a presence, much like what Mel Tucker had during his one year in Boulder. Replacing Karl Dorrell with another Karl Dorrell will not cut it.

For as much fun as it would be to see Joel Klatt coach his alma mater from the Big Noon Saturday booth with former CU teammate Brendan Schaub roaming the sidelines, it is time for the Buffs to get back to being a college football program worth talking about. Colorado has a very low entry point. Boulder is an awesome college town. Hiring Coach Prime would have everyone’s attention.

Not to say the Buffs will go on a Bill McCartney-esque run under Sanders, but that is not insane.
