Job security

Only in college football can you take a job on Sunday and then accept another one on Wednesday -- and have no one in the business think anything of it.

Yet that is actually what happened at LSU with defensive line coach Earl Lane.

As Gannett News Service's Glenn Guilbeau reported today, Lane was announced as an assistant at Wisconsin on Sunday and accepted a job at LSU Wednesday night.

This isn't knocking Lane. This is just the life of an assistant in college football. You can be fired for no other reason than being on the staff of a coach on the way out. So why not leave when the best available offer comes up.

Again, nobody in the college coaching profession is up in arms. It's just the way it is. Once again, it just shows how unlike the real world college sports is.
