08:21 AM ET 11.18 | Considering the heat on Rick Neuheisel, Dan Guerrero may have a list of possible replacements that includes Boise State's Chris Petersen. Guerrero is obligated to take a run at him, just in case he is willing to listen, and at the same time be prepared to move on quickly. It's pretty much the same with Urban Meyer, the former Florida coach. If he returns to coaching, the thought is he is likely to pop up at Ohio State. Next up, Washington coach Steve Sarkisian. Didn't he just get hammered in the Coliseum by USC? Correct. But he still has a 2-1 record against the Trojans, which has to resonate in Westwood. Sarkisian has the Huskies on the right track after taking over a program that was in worse shape than UCLA.

Sarkisian would be interesting back in LA.What about Scout.com report of Urban to tOSU?

Guess $35 million is worth ruining your health for. His family can enjoy it after it kills him.

Why would he leave Washington for UCLA? That would not make any sense at all.

+1. Much easier to recruit and win more games at UW. Once Luck leaves UW should be able to out-recruit the rest of the division (minus Oregon) every single year. UCLA, after this year with the scholarship reductions, almost never out recruits UCLA and has to fight to beat ASU and Zona in the recruiting wars.

Other than a nice game day field and good weather what does UCLA really offer to any coach already in a good job situation?

Not so funny, sorry, just sensitive too much, money is not worth it at all. Greed is so great everywhere. I saw where the NCAA is considering dropping all the BCS games and only keeping the BCS #1 vs #2 game for the NCG, that will make a lot of them like the Big East breathe easier I guess. Takes away all the AQ's.

Sorry and that was exactly my point. My doctor gave me a book once titled "Is It Worth Dying For?" Didn't his doctors tell him his body needed "significant" time away from this job and then he would need to learn to deal with it better?

Don't think he'd appreciate the "prodding" by #83 on the sidelines. LOL

They need to have an article that talks about both UCLA and Bama.... The blue suit and #83 in the same title shot would be epic.

And, doesn't UW pay about twice what UCLA does

Smog, crime.

The campus is next to Beverly Hills and Bel-Aire. It's above the smog and now that OJ is nowhere close, there is no crime

UW does have some very interested boosters. Most of the UCLA boosters probably care more about BB.
