Now that National Signing Day has come and gone, recruiting junkies only have one thing left to do: wonder.

As soon as the Ole Miss head coaching position became open this past Monday, former Texas Tech head coach Mike Leach’s name was quickly linked with the job, among other former and current head coaches and coordinators.

Currently an announcer and analyst for CBS Sports, Leach boasts 23 years of coaching experience, including an 84-43 record in 10 seasons as the Texas Tech head coach. He brought his patented “Air Raid” offense to Lubbock, and the Red Raiders never had a losing season, reached 10 straight bowl games and shared the Big 12 South Title in 2008.

When asked about the Ole Miss job, he said it would be a job that “anybody would be interested in.”

AUSTIN MILLER: What are your overall thoughts on the Houston Nutt’s four seasons at Ole Miss?

EDWARD ASCHOFF: I think things started off better than anybody could have ever imagined with back-to-back Cotton Bowl victories. He was the king of town. People loved Houston Nutt, and he was really engaging. He fit in well with the community and was exactly what a team like that needed at the time after the disaster with Ed Orgeron.

On Monday, Ole Miss announced that head football coach Houston Nutt would not be retained next season, as well as the retirement of Pete Boone by December 2012.

The Rebel nation was also informed that former football great Archie Manning and FedEx Executive Vice President Mike Glenn would co-chair a committee that would be responsible in finding a new Ole Miss football coach and new athletics director.

After a day to take all of this information from Monday, this could be a monumental moment in not just Ole Miss athletics, but for the university as a whole. The two men who are hired to take over such prestigious positions could alter the face of Ole Miss forever.

From 1995 to 1998 and from 2002 to the present, which includes Boone’s terms, the Ole Miss football team has gone 81-84 overall and 39-71 in Southeastern Conference play. Lee Habeeb, Forward Rebels spokesperson, said the blame for the poor play should go directly to the top, not with the coaches or the players.

Austin Miller: What is the outside, the national perception after the loss to Vanderbilt on Saturday?

Bruce Feldman: To me, the most surprising thing about it is you just don’t see Vanderbilt dominating another SEC team the way they did that game. That’s the biggest thing. I don’t know how much that’s a reflection of the new coaching staff at Vandy or the state of Ole Miss at this point.

I think I'm done making the argument that Ole Miss baseball fans shouldn't overreact to this year's season thus far. Sure, there’s a great freshman class and another great class coming in next year, but that’s beside the point.

Four-and-half years went by too fast. So fast that I have to recount the ups-and-downs I’ve experienced while at Ole Miss. I’ve seen some amazing things while at Ole Miss, some of them good and some of them bad.
