Sunday Morning Quarterback waxes eloquent about the demise of Ed Orgeron:
Ed Orgeron is luckier than he is smart, and he’s not very lucky. Which is the most polite way I know how to express my complete lack of surprise that Orgeron is no longer employed as Ole Miss’ head coach after aggressively giving away a game his team had in the bag Friday – in the bag, against a hated rival, in the fourth quarter – to finish an 0-8 conference season. In the bag, tied up in knots, and beaten repeatedly with heavy sticks until lifeless, up to the point, with a little over twelve minutes left in the game, Oregon stopped the proceedings, untied the bag, and injected Mississippi State and its tens of thousands of cowbell-ringing, previously moribund partisans with an adrenaline shot and an unobstructed view of Coach O’s jugular.
It’s not the sudden firing I don’t understand; it’s why they hired this guy in the first place.
But then again, just like SMQ, I don’t understand how Virginia Tech is ahead of LSU in any of the polls/rankings. Life is full of mysteries, I guess.
