Envy and jealousy, falling upwards

Last word on the Louisville coordinator hires goes to Robert Weintraub, who delivers this gem:

In this climate, even Kevin Ramsey, who was so incompetent as UGA defensive coordinator in 1999 that he allegedly was relieved of his duties at halftime of the bowl game and subsequently supposedly punched out Bulldogs head coach Jim Donnan, could land a new gig (with a higher salary, natch) within 48 hours.

I hear ‘ya.

    I’ve always heard the halftime hiring was at the 99 Auburn game, but yeah, his point is well taken. Apparently failure doesn’t cling to people the way it used to.

    “As a straight trade, it’s roughly comparable to swapping George McClellan for Ulysses S. Grant”. Wow. That’s gotta sting for Grantham.

      What? You don’t remember his drinking problem (that prompted Lincoln to say “Find out what he’s drinking and see that my other generals get a bottle.”) ?

    Was that Joe Kines who took over in that bowl?

    Ramsey was eating fried chicken in the booth during games. That was in his incentive clause.
