LOL what the fuck for? He's a sloppy-ass alcoholic and if there EVER was a reason to fire a coach it would be because of that (among other things, of course). If a coach can get fired because he consistently goes 9-4 each season, then a coach can get fired because he goes to games and practice while higher than a Georgia pine.

well- they knew he was alcoholic and were okay with it; he then went to rehab and during his rehab they fired him. Basically he was seeking to control his disability and they fired him during it. 

 

along those lines.

Am I the only one thinking of the South Park episode where Randy is an alcoholic and goes to AA?

No WI. I'm not watching if I can't see them blow yet another big game.

So UCLA is playing Nebraska who is 5-7. I thought you had to be at least .500 to play in a bowl?

post #399 of 510
I thought you had to at least have 6 wins but could still be under .500. I have no idea how Nebraska made it to a bowl game other than their fans travel well.
post #400 of 510
it's a a joke having 40+ bowl games. basically 2/3 of the number of D1 schools.

apparently, Nebraska and a couple others were better in the classroom so they got priority.

But this year only 77 teams had at least six victories and a .500 record — the minimum to be eligible for a bowl bid — so the three 5-7s received bids.

The NCAA approved a plan last week to fill the open slots with five-win teams based on their Academic Progress Ratings for 2013-14, the most recent scores available. Nebraska (985) was tops among those teams and was eager to get a chance to play another game.

a bowl for everyone!

Handing Bowl bids out like they're participation trophies.
post #403 of 510
what is even crazier is that schools accept these bids knowing that they may potentially lose money. i think it was a couple years ago where 15 or so schools reported a loss after they accounted for travel, ticket allotment, etc.
post #404 of 510
Yeah, because if you don't sell out your allotment, the school is on the hook to buy the rest. Which is stupid, because the schools aren't the one fixing the prices, so the bowls can charge obscene amounts and the school has to pay if people don't buy.

I think athletic departments "lose money" the way Hollywood studios do(n't).
