History In 2014, TCU missed the Playoff in favor of Ohio State because the Big 12 did not have a Conference Championship Game. In 2022, TCU could miss the Playoff in favor of Ohio State because it must play in the Big 12 Conference Championship Game.

After 2014, the Big 12 pushed for a rule change so that conferences with fewer that 12 teams could still host a conference championship game. After a six-year hiatus, the Big 12 Championship Game returned in 2017.

Credit to 2014 Baylor as well, who would have played TCU in a hypothetical Big 12 Championship Game that year. Baylor beat TCU in the regular season, and the winner of that hypothetical rematch likely finishes in the top-4 above OSU.

Discussion A Note From A Coach's Kid As We Enter The Coaching Carousel.

301 Upvotes

tl;dr: Try not to be a megajerk about coaches losing their jobs. They're people with families too.

As background, my father is a retired football coach who spent the last few decades years coaching high school in Texas but spent the decade before working in the college ranks at Vanderbilt, West Alabama (then Livingston), and UTEP. He quit coaching college expressly because of the strain it put on our family.

I know we all want the best for our programs, and sometimes that includes getting rid of the coaching staff. But as someone who grew up not knowing if my dad would have his job week-to-week, let me assure you, there are people on the other side of this. The casualness I sometimes see with wanting some coach fired because of a bad game can be a bit jarring for those of us who had to worry that one bad game would leave us without a job.

It isn't just coaches but spouses, children, and families. College coaching is a tough and unforgiving business. Coaching is not conducive to family life and has broken up countless marriages with its upheavals and cruel nature. So all I ask as we talk about which coaches need to get axed is that we take some time to give grace to those affected by these real-world decisions.
