College Football Hot Seat: Neal Brown, West Virginia

West Virginia won in impressive fashion last week over Duquesne, but Penn State rolled the Mountaineers in Week 1, 38-15.

Neal Brown, who has just one winning season since coming over from Troy to be the Mountaineers head coach, desperately needs to get things going and a win over Pitt this Saturday would certainly be a feather in his cap.

It’s a rivalry game, one that the Panthers won last season (38-31) and another loss this year will only ramp up the hot-seat talk for Brown.

College Football Hot Seat: Jeff Hafley, Boston College

After a pair of six-wins seasons to start his tenure with Boston College, things have gone downhill quickly for the Eagles, who lost to Northern Illinois in Week 1, only to barely beat Holy Cross last week 31-28.

It’s possible that Boston College is the worst team in Power-5 college football. Maybe the worst in the FBS period. It’s not a good look and after a 3-9 season in 2022, getting embarrassed by Florida State on Saturday won’t look good.

You can’t really expect Boston College to win this game, although it might actually save Hafley’s job if it did. Yet, If it looks like BC doesn’t even belong on the same field as the Seminoles, it could hasten the end of the Hafley era in Chestnut Hill.
