Jay Mariotti is Right!

I think planet Earth has stopped revolving on its axis. I agree 100% with an article written by Jay Mariotti of the Chicago Sun-Times.

He is supposed to be the cool head in Champaign, the responsible adult amid all the boosters, students and townies yelling about Weber's recruiting woes and the long drought of the football program. Closer to the truth, Guenther is losing grip of a department spinning out of control amid troubling criminal incidents. Basketball player Jamar Smith was charged with felony drunk driving after leaving the scene of an auto crash, a horrific wreck in a snowstorm that left teammate Brian Carlwell with a serious concussion. Two football players, Derrick McPhearson and Jody Ellis, were dismissed from the team and face criminal charges. Earlier this year, the New York Times looked into recruiting practices by football coach Ron Zook, who seems to be guilty of nothing more than a tireless work ethic and an overactive text-messaging gadget. But that didn't stop Guenther from hiring an outside firm to probe the whispers.

As if his lousy football record, men's basketball program arrests, overpaid women's basketball coach wasn't enough reason to Fire Ron Guenther.
