    Featured on the video board… James Franco? I didn’t know he was up for a coaching position! Hahahaha! In all seriousness, it will be interesting to see who fills all of these SEC coaching positions open this year. PA, I’m hearing Houston Nutt’s name mentioned in the Boston College job hunt. Have you heard of him surfacing anywhere else?

    I have also heard Houston’s name with BC. He has the body of work for someone to give him a look, but I’m not sure that would be a team from inside the region.
