Sober October for coaches. Texas A&M keeps struggling. 'College Football Fix' experts discuss.

It's Sober October and it's come at a fitting time after five Power Five coaches have already been dismissed.

Paul Chryst was one of two who were relieved last weekend. The former Wisconsin coach's departure came as a surprise, especially with the Badgers' financial commitment him. With open positions at Wisconsin and Nebraska, which job is more appealing? And which one would be the better fit for top-performing Kansas coach Lance Leipold?

Elsewhere, Texas A&M continues to struggle under the extensive offensive playbook of Jimbo Fisher. All preseason hope that this week's matchup against Alabama would be the best of the season have gone. Is it time for Texas A&M to part ways with Fisher?

And Georgia stumbled against Missouri last week. The Bulldogs were able to pull out the win and avoid an upset, but they still slipped behind Alabama in the USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches Poll.

Dan Wolken and Paul Myerberg address all these storylines and look ahead to the biggest matchups in Week 6 during the latest version of College Football Fix, the USA TODAY Sports weekly podcast that releases every Tuesday during the season.
