08:23 AM ET 11.22 | George O'Leary received his stay on Monday, courtesy UCF President John Hitt. It would be a very popular move indeed if [Hitt] decided to take a huge financial hit, buy out the four years remaining on O'Leary's multi-million-dollar contract and make a coaching change immediately after the season. But that's not going to happen. Hitt said Monday that he is not considering making a coaching change and still believes in O'Leary. "I understand how the message board phenomenon gets going," Hitt said, "but I think a lot of the anger is misplaced, and we're not going to make a change." Even so, Hitt acknowledges that O'Leary's program has "yo-yoed up and down" and that "we've seen this movie before."

I CARE!!!!!

I've been laying awake at night wondering if George was going to have to fabricate another resume and go job hunting again. I guess Saban's job is safe if O'Leary is staying at UCF.

Just kidding......BTW, how bad are the Bulldogs going to pile on Ole Mess in the Egg Bowl? Any concerns HDN pulls one more miracle out of his hat?

Ole Mess fans are more confident than MSU fans that the Dawgs will roll. I think the game will be contested because it is a rivalry. Hopefully we get up early and often and they lay down like they have the last few games. I see MSU winning by 10.

The joke was good, so no worries :) I saw us losing, but I was hoping that it would have been more of a shootout. I think there will probably be a new OC in Starkvegas next year.

I really like Mullen....I hope he stays at MSU for a while. Needless to say, I'll be pulling hard for you guys in the Egg Bowl/

Any suggestions on who the OC should be?
