    Dang! It took nearly ALL day for them to make this call! I am more interested in the fate of Trooper and Luper.

    But the coaching profession being what it is, I know they'll all land on their feet somewhere.

    Great! No more commercials with Chizik riding around around in a Ford truck saying war eagle and hauling tp around.

    The article said that all assistants were fired by Jacobs, but could reapply to whoever is named as the next head coach.

    I saw a comment on there that some of them wanted Trooper to replace Chizik. Silly barners.....

    Yep, I have to agree.. My Dad lost his job of over 25 years last week due to the union strike on Hostess. He is near retirement age and will looking for a job in a tough market weeks before Christmas.

    Mack - I agree with you. No reason to gloat. We "finished him off" as the article mentioned in classic fashion. I guess it's only natural to "spike the football" a little bit when that putrid program is in such disaray.

    That said, anyone entering into a coaching career must understand they will be journeymen until they reach a level of a Nick Saban and can write their own ticket. Most coaches at the D-1 level are handsomely compensated and I expect they will all find new locales to wallow in the misery of the last two years.

    Now that Jim has a lot more free time, maybe he can make use of that dental plan.

    No more Cheez Sticks? That's cool. I just can't wait to see what poor sap they get to take over that program.
