Redistribution of Wealth, Pac-10 Style

With President-Elect Barack Obama’s recent ascension to power, it’s possible that he and Congress will carry out a “redistribution of wealth” in the coming years.  In keeping with this country’s current trend toward socialism, perhaps the same principles should be applied to the Pac-10.

ESPN’s Chris Fowler recently penned a column, lamenting the pathetic performances of the Huskies and Cougars football teams, and stating the need for the other conference schools to help with a bailout package.

It’s interesting to take that one step further.  Why should USC continue to reap the benefits of Pete Carroll as head coach year after year?  Why should Washington State be limited by their remote location and inhospitable climes in their ability to hire a top-notch coach?

With this in mind, I put the names of every Pac-10 football coach into a box, shook it violently (fueled by the animosity brought on by Washington’s 0-9 season) and then conducted a mock draft.  I reassigned the names to each Pac-10 team.  I did this only once, and with no manipulation of the outcome.

 

Here were the results:

Team                                      New Head Coach

Washington State……………..Rick Neuheisel

Washington…………………….. Mike Bellotti

Oregon……………………………. Jim Harbaugh

Oregon State…………………..  Paul Wulff

California………………………..   Mike Stoops

Stanford………………………….. Pete Carroll

USC…………………………………. Dennis Erickson

UCLA……………………………….  Tyrone Willingham

Arizona………………………………Mike Riley

Arizona State……………………..Jeff Tedford
