You know Kevin Sumlin, right? He’s the guy down at Texas A&M who is holding his own in the SEC West—aka the NFL’s ninth division—and is grooming stars like Johnny Manziel and Kenny Hill.

So, assuming you are a fan who’s wanting to see change, which would you prefer to see happen first: Brady Hoke being fired or Dave Brandon being fired?
