Who's on the hottest seat -- Mack, Pelini or Kiffin?

Coach on the hot seat is always a hot topic in sports.

This week, we’ve got three times the hot. The coaches at three big-time college football programs are getting toasty backsides — Texas’s Mack Brown, Nebraska’s Bo Pelini and USC’s Lane Kiffin — and while poor play is a significant part of the equation with all of them, Pelini exacerbated his predicament by taking on a Cornhusker legend, then getting caught talking badly about Husker fans.

You can call the Husker fans lots of things, but fair-weather ain’t one of them.

So, with their seats heating up, Berry Tramel and I went on the Press Row this week and talked about who’s on the hottest seat. I won’t give away our answers — you’ll have to watch the video! — but I will let you know that Berry believes one of the three coaches isn’t even on a hot seat. That’s right. Either Mack, Pelini or Kiffin isn’t on the hot seat. You’ll definitely want to check out his explanation for that.

Be sure and tell us what you think n the comments section. Who’s on the hottest seat? Or did we forget a college coach who’s on an even hotter one?
