Don already posted the sad news, and I felt the need to write something as well, but it took me a few minutes to stop crying log in to the site to write the post.
Honestly, this is sad on more than one front. Obviously, now this site is dead and no one will ever need to come back here ever again (in fact, what are you doing here now?). On the other hand, it’s sad that basically one of the only to coaches I’ve ever known to coach for Tennessee (Johnny Majors being the other obviously), is now history.
The coach did what he could to appease people who hated the fact that he kept hiring from “within the family” by hiring Dave Clawson (who I thought still could have done fine given some time), but when that failed, the first thing everyone wanted was his job. That being said, Don and I are still available.
For those of you coming to our site to see how we’re coping with the unfortunate situation, well, Don sold his car to pay for the hosting of the site (I was supposed to give him half the money back, but I spent it playing craps a few months ago in Vegas), and well, I’m currently inconsolable. If there are any typos, it’s because I’m crying all over my keyboard, and I think I’ve shorted out a couple of lttrs.
As the search for the new coach begins, obviously the search for a new website name should begin too. Should we become a basketball-centric blog and call ourselves PearlsSweatyCoat.com? FutureCoachsDistinguishingBodyPart.com? We’ll see. Until then, keep coming here, because honestly, we’re probably too lazy to do anything about it. Perhaps we should pick something more stable like “Oakland Raiders Coach of the Moment.com”
Speaking of Oakland Raiders Coaches… KiffinsBruisedEgo.com?
