One of the talking heads on radio suggested on Friday that Tommy West may be the new DC at UGA after he gets fired from Memphis. They said he is from Gainesville and should be interested in the job.
The only question that lingers in Tommy’s mind is that if he was fired for losing to Lane by 28 why wasn’t Richt fired for losing to Lane by 26.
But Tommy having had been ‘Clemsoned’ before knew that sometimes only a 2 point differential means the difference between having to say adios and having a stable program heading in the right direction.
Tommy also knew that he was in the wrong lane when he tried to tell that joke that had the critics unanimously panning his joke-telling ability. So in addition to losing to Lane, he was fired because when you can’t tell a good joke at Lane’s expense correctly, you do not deserve to be in the higher echelon of one-liner jokesters like Lane.
Tommy, like Calipari, will never eat lunch in Memphis again; however, rumor is that the dry rubbed rib restaurant association of Beale Street has made overtures to Charlie’s people knowing that Charlie may soon be looking for an all you can eat luncheon buffet in a town other than the South Bend – Metro Chicago area. Charlie’s people have purportedly asked for more specifics about the weight and cut of the ribs.
We can only hope that Tommy like a Tubs, a Phil or a Charlie before him had a good enough agent to at least get him $5,000,000.00 from the program that fired him.
Or perhaps a ‘Kiffenesque’ way of Tommy getting ‘Cromptonized’ or Tommy getting ‘Laneapaloozaed’ and not only ‘Not getting Laylaed’ but getting the ‘Full Monte’ instead.
You had me laughing until I pictured the “Full Monte” which got me dry heaving. By the way, thanks a whole helluva lot for that damn video of Fight Club set to the “No Handle Bars” song. Can’t get that song out of my head.
Tommy West was the best coach that loser program ever had. The place is a coaches graveyard. A good season there is 7-6. If you have a losing season they want to fire you. No margin at all for safety. Good luck in filling the vacancy.
Crompton and Long Beach together now you know you in trouble
