Coaches Under Pressure: Challenges facing Billy Napier, Sam Pittman and more in 2024 (05/20)

The Cover 3 crew talks Billy Napier, Ryan Day, Mario Cristobal and more. First, whether there should be any alarm at Brian Kelly and LSU losing the commitment of a 5-star wide receiver and how Michigan has used late transfer portal additions to address depth needs on the secondary. Then it's on to the discussion of Coaches Under Pressure in 2024, which starts with Billy Napier, Sam Pittman and Dave Aranda facing hot seat seasons. Then it's on to coaches that aren't on the hot seat but certainly have pressure to win, like Ohio State's Ryan Day and Miami's Mario Cristobal. Finally a look at the Vegas win totals to see if there are any projected seasons that would generate pressure, including a low win total for Lincoln Riley and USC and several coaches in seemingly good standing projected to miss a bowl game.
