Willy, he hardly knew ‘ye.

Bobby Petrino’s defensive coordinator for the past four seasons “resigned” his position yesterday.  I’m guessing he walked into his office and found his resignation letter taped to his chair.

Lowell George knows what that sounds like.

    I’m guessing Mike Zimmer won’t be getting an interview.

    Did you notice the similarity in the stories in the linked article (“taped to his chair”) about the circumstances surrounding Petrino leaving the Falcons and Granny Holtz leaving the Jets? Click on Holtz in the article and it will tell you. What a hoot!

  3. Arkansas Off Coordinator is now HC at UAB.
    Two key positions gone at Arky.

    Is it my imagination or is Texas offensive line kinda a mess?

      FWIW, local paper gave SS a passing grade and noted he inherited a mess, used a true frosh, RS frosh and still got their running game improved.

      Just saying…

        Sometimes a change in venue is enough to revitalize someone. SS was highly regarded when he came to Athens, yet never really got it done. Maybe he’ll get it done in Austin.

    Dig the Little Feat. Thanks Senator!

  6. Way off topic, but I still miss the dulcet tones of Lowell George. Thanks.

      Agreed. I enjoy his music. Gone too soon.

        I knew a musician whose band played as the opener for a Feat show in San Francisco.

        He said that he hung out with them for a day, and watched George drink a gallon jug of port wine.

        What a waste.

        When Bonnie Raitt sat in with them, you had live music at its pinnacle (saw them on my birthday one year in Memphis).

    It is always appropriate on the 4th day of Zappadan to recognize Lowell George in “Directly From My Heart,” in honor of the way Bobby prefers to communicate with his coordinators and Das Hat

  8. And sadly, another truly world-class mustache meets its Div.1 end. I hope it turns up elsewhere, or else we’ll have to rely upon Chavis to pick up the slack within the league.
