Welp!---Houston Cougars promote Major Applewhite to Head Coach

And now you know why the College Coaching Carousel is rarely predictable. 

Just a day after reports began leaking out the Houston Cougars were leaning towards Alabama Offensive Coordinator Lane Kiffin as their next head coach (we quoted the report) turns out they didn't.

Offensive Coordinator Major Applewhite was named head coach late Friday morning in a move that surprised people outside Texas but not many inside the state.

Applewhite, considered by many an up-and-coming star in the Coaching ranks takes over the reigns immediately and will lead the team to their Las Vegas Bowl appearance later in December. He beat our Kiffin, former LSU Head Coach Les Miles and Cougars defensive coordinator Todd Orlando for the full-time job. Orlando had been serving as the interim head coach the past week or so since Tom Herman left to take over the head coaching job at Texas.

Montreal Goalie Carey Price goes nuts on Kyle Palmieri after collision

Every once in a while during a hockey game you'll see the opposing goalies join in a full on line brawl by taking on each other. And it's usually a somewhat awkward tussle as the goalies sport tons of padding and masks.

But it is really odd to see a goalie pummel a opposing front of his own goal. Which is what happened Thursday night after New Jersey Devils forward Kyle Palmieri crashed into Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price on an awkward breakaway attempt.

A Canadiens defenseman tried to stop Palmieri and sent him crashing into Price's legs, knocking the veteran goaltender off his skates onto the ice. But it's what happened next that was eye opening....

Price springs back up and begins pummeling the prone Palmieri who had someone draped over the front part of his torso and couldn't move. He just keeps on punching Palmieri in the back and kidney/side area until a referee finally skates over and pulls the enraged goaltender off....

After the 5-2 Canadiens win, Price calmly explained why he went off and it sounds somewhat logical if you think about it...

Yes, Art Briles Is Now Suing Baylor...

With another round of possible coaching hires, pretty much, come and gone in college football former Baylor head coach Art Briles is now suing his old employer for libel, slander, and alleging a conspiracy that keeps him from getting work.

The suit, which names Baylor University Board of Regents Chairman Ronald Murff, Regents J. Cary Gray and David Harper, and Senior Vice President for Operations and Chief Financial Officer Reagan Ramsower, seeks unspecified damages in excess of $1 million.

"We have no comment at this time," Baylor spokeswoman Lori Fogelman said in an email Thursday in response.

Not shocking because of all that "pending allegations" quote machine that folks churn out when these situations arise.

Bruce Feldman analyzed the firing for Colin Cowherd at the time on "The Herd"

Briles would then go on ESPN apologizing for things the HQ is still unsure as to what he was apologizing for in the first place... his media redemption tour began in earnest at this point... early September...

((HT: ESPN))

The Briles suit alleges the defendants, after the Briles dismissal, spread lies in subsequent interviews with the Wall Street Journal, "60 Minutes Sports," USA Today and others- alleged friends of boosters and their connections. 

Briles, through his lawyer Ernest Cannon, claims all the allegations- initial and additional- were created out of thin air and have no merit.

So, yes, Briles is suing Baylor...
