    Maybe if he gets the 3rd tier of TCF built, Minnesota would be a more attractive job.
    I think he sticks around at least for next year. The buy-out is a hurdle (that won't stop anyone that REALLY wants him) that is significantly lower after next year. Also, I know it seems a bit funny to say but there aren't a ton of jobs out there better than minny.

    Clemson - Dabo ain't going anywhere
    Virginia Tech - I think they will give Justin Fuente more time as he hasn't been bad and Frank Beamer was there for 18 years
    Florida State - Just hired Mike Norvell
    Miami - I could see the timing of this lining up, not sure how likely though

    Big 12
    Baylor - there is a lot of interest in Matt Rhule so there could be an opening. I'd put this on par maybe slightly better than the minny job
    Oklahoma State - Mike Gundy has been there awhile, so maybe?
    TCU - same as OSU with Gary Patterson
    Texas - Tom Herman isn't going anywhere for awhile
    Oklahoma - I don't think they'd go for PJ if Lincoln Riley goes to the NFL

    Pac 12
    Oregon - nope
    Washington - nope
    Stanford - something would have to go upside down in a hurry to get rid of David Shaw
    USC - I don't think Clay Helton is the issue, but I guess that doesn't always matter. Outside possibility?
    UCLA - possibility

    Tennessee - Possibly
    Georgia - Kirby Smart isn't going anywhere
    LSU - Nope
    Auburn - Auburn does some really funny things so while it is highly unlikely, you never know?
    Florida - Dan Mullen has been pretty good, don't see timelines lining up
    Texas A&M - PJ ain't taking over for Jimbo
    Arkansas - Just hired Sam Pittman
    Ole Miss - Lane Mania baby!
    South Carolina - Not sure if PJ would be interested or not but possibly?

    Big Ten
    Michigan - I see this as THE step up
    Ohio State - Nope
    Nebraska - If Frost doesn't improve next season I could see this, but would they want to pay another coach who isn't coaching for them
    Penn State - Franklin seems safe
    Michigan State - Does Dantoni continue to slip? Does MSU want to buy him out?
    Wisconsin - Nope
    Iowa - probably a lateral move

    Notre Dame - The other real step up I could see, not sure if they would embrace his coaching style though

    PJ is gone as soon as a Bigger Program offers. He pressured gophers into paying him extra (he was 9-0 but only 2-2 vs ranked teams)
    PJ has a plan, and he needed a lucky year like this to fulfill that plan, now he will use it.

    Gophers end up #10 in the final ranking. Hard to believe after how much they struggled with SDSU, but they just kept improving. Future is looking better than at any previous point in my lifetime.

    My opinion is that Minnesota had the best bowl win (not including CFP) of the bowl season. They represented the B1G very well.
