No, no ranting and raving about the state of the union ( and I don't mean politics), no calling out the people in the world who, in seeking to improve it, manage to muck it up for those among us who aren't seeking to take over the world, and no pointing fingers at anyone involved. Yeah, right.
All of you think I am talking about our much ballyhooed site improvements, don't you? Well, maybe to a certain extent, but not exactly. It's time to talk about the second most combustible subject on this blog right now. Football and the coaching thereof.
When you combine the less than stellar coaching this season with the ever-growing injury list, we all know where we are headed and fast. The term "snowball headed for hell" comes to mind. So, time for some intelligent discussion about our next man at the helm. Sure, Joker could win out the season and save his job. But I ain't holding my breath, and I am betting that no one else is either. So, candidates please step forward.
Bobby Petrino: Yes, this is the pick of the moment. Bobby Petrino could walk into Commonwealth right now and take over and make a big chunk of the BBN happy as clams. So, he goes at the top of the list. Now for some more desirable candidates for the more refined palate.
Todd Berry: UL Monroe H.C. A dark horse pick for sure, but he has already shown he can beat SEC competition, so he makes the list. His record against the SEC this season may very well be better than Joker's by year's end.
Butch Jones : Cincinnati H.C. A safe pick? Maybe. Maybe he will like staying in the new Conference USA too much to leave, but he is definitely worth a look see. Would he be willing to take on the challenge that is Kentucky? That is indeed the question.
Willie Taggert : WKU H.C. Another popular pick with the fans, especially after he kicked Joker's tail in O.T. in Commonwealth. It would make our fearless leader happy to see one of his alums walking the sidelines I am sure. Everyone else? We shall see.
There are loads of other picks, most of which I don't give much credence to, i.e. Jim Tressel, but feel free to add in your own.
