Coaching search?  That means the return of Death March Madness, which won’t help matters (it might actually hurt) but it’ll keep you busy while you watch your Twitter feed like a freak.  

Here’s a look at the 2011 bracket.

Oosterbaan Region Round 1:

5.  Josh McDaniels (Former NFL Coach) — Huge connections in Ohio and grad-assistant to Nick Saban at Michigan State.  He may have some support from Tom Brady during his time with the Patriots however, recently he has had some issues with management and the NFL.

vs.

6.  Mike Stoops (Arizona) — Might be a longshot candidate as he has been on some thin ice lately at Arizona — has resurrected Arizona’s program but has yet to get over the hump.

Oosterbaan Region Round 1:

  • 6. Mike Stoops (Arizona) (53%, 91 Votes)
  • 5. Josh McDaniels (Former NFL Coach) (48%, 82 Votes)

Total Voters: 171

Oosterbaan Region Round 1:

3.  Pat Fitzgerald (Northwestern) — Rumored to be a candidate however, he has decided to decline the opportunity with Michigan.  He is young, fast-paced and successful however, he might be a "lifer" at his alma mater.  Perhaps Brandon can still make him an offer he can’t refuse.

vs.

4.  Mike Gundy (Oklahoma State) — Could be a dark horse candidate as he has been quietly successful at OSU.  He would have a hard time leaving his alma mater as well — successor of Les Miles.  Plus he’s just past 40, and he’s a man.

Oosterbaan Region Round 1:

  • 4. Mike Gundy (Oklahoma State) (52%, 97 Votes)
  • 3. Pat Fitzgerald (Northwestern) (48%, 90 Votes)

Total Voters: 187

Thanks again to Christian Sack, (icefins26 on mgoblog, or guy who rocks the Zack Morris/AC Slater avatar) who drew up the seedings and prepared a quick summary of each candidate.
