Is Gary Pinkel making like Mizzou fans and getting off the hot seat before his caboose is cooked?

USC coach Lane Kiffin may be on the hot seat after another disappointing performance by his team. Coaches will up and leave for a new job for any old reason now-a-days. Did the events from Saturday's game vs. Toledo move him closer to leaving for better conditions, recruiting and fans? Let's look at the evidence:

Looks like Lane Kiffin might soon be out of a job. Mike Leach will do that to ya.

Perhaps he's tired of criticism?

What I really want is for Pinkel to be less nice.

Or perhaps he's tired of empty stadiums and fair weather fans:

The heat was overblown you say?

Saturday's game was the second-hottest game played in an SEC college town. Only Texas A&M fans dealt with hotter temperatures, as the daytime high reached 97 degrees Saturday when the Aggies hosted Sam Houston State.
