Thanksgiving Day became a habit, for the reason that in the course of time, as the years drifted on, it was perceived that the exterminating had ceased to be mutual and was all on the white man’s side, consequently on the Lord’s side; hence it was proper to thank the Lord for it and extend the usual annual compliments.”  Mark Twain

The Desolate Wilderness, Editorial, Wall Street Journal

“Here beginneth the chronicle of those memorable circumstances of the year 1620, as recorded by Nathaniel Morton , keeper of the records of Plymouth Colony, based on the account of William Bradford , sometime governor thereof:

So they left that goodly and pleasant city of Leyden, which had been their resting-place for above eleven years, but they knew that they were pilgrims and strangers here below, and looked not much on these things, but lifted up their eyes to Heaven, their dearest country, where God hath prepared for them a city (Heb. XI, 16), and therein quieted their spirits.

When they came to Delfs-Haven they found the ship and all things ready, and such of their friends as could not come with them followed after them, and sundry came from Amsterdam to see them shipt, and to take their leaves of them. One night was spent with little sleep with the most, but with friendly entertainment and Christian discourse, and other real expressions of true Christian love.

he next day they went on board, and their friends with them, where truly doleful was the sight of that sad and mournful parting, to hear what sighs and sobs and prayers did sound amongst them; what tears did gush from every eye, and pithy speeches pierced each other’s heart, that sundry of the Dutch strangers that stood on the Key as spectators could not refrain from tears. But the tide (which stays for no man) calling them away, that were thus loath to depart, their Reverend Pastor, falling down on his knees, and they all with him, with watery cheeks commended them with the most fervent prayers unto the Lord and His blessing; and then with mutual embraces and many tears they took their leaves one of another, which proved to be the last leave to many of them.

Being now passed the vast ocean….”

And the Fair Land, Editorial, Wall Street Journal

“Anyone whose labors take him into the far reaches of the country, as ours lately have done, is bound to mark how the years have made the land grow fruitful.

This is indeed a big country, a rich country, in a way no array of figures can measure and so in a way past belief of those who have not seen it. Even those who journey through its Northeastern complex, into the Southern lands, across the central plains and to its Western slopes can only glimpse a measure of the bounty of America.

And a traveler cannot but be struck on his journey by the thought that this country, one day, can be even greater. America, though many know it not, is one of the great underdeveloped countries of the world; what it reaches for exceeds by far what it has grasped.

So the visitor returns thankful for much of what he has seen, and, in spite of everything, an optimist about what his country might be. Yet the visitor, if he is to make an honest report, must also note the air of unease that hangs everywhere.

For the traveler, as travelers have been always…..”

Give These Hot Seat Coaches Hell Johnny!

Thank You Mr. Cash!

Post Week 12 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

1.  Jimbo Fisher, Texas A&M > When you are sitting on a record of 37 – 21 in 5 seasons at Texas A&M which ain’t good at all if anyone’s asking one starts to wonder just what in the Hell is inside that Very Average Record and so we took at look it and Jimbo Fisher’s…

Record against FBS Teams with .500+ Records in Year the Aggies played them is…wait for it…

17 – 20

The $86 Million Buyout Man has a record of 17 – 20 against FBS Teams with .500+ records!

If that doesn’t say it all then what the Hell does exactly?

Geez…Texas A&M has paid Jimbo Fisher around $40 Million Dollars and his ass is sitting on a record of…

17 and Freaking 20 against FBS Teams with .500+ Records!

Yep…this will all be corrected by continuing this Damn Nonsense for another year!

2.  Pretty Boy Patty Boy Pat Fitzgerald, Northwestern > Ole Pretty Boy Patty Boy Pat Fitzgerald whose ass have a hard time getting a job Shoveling Shit if not on the Northwestern campus in our humble opinion not that Pretty Boy Patty Boy have the Guts to take a job in the Real World where your ass actually has got to perform to get paid lost another game on Saturday which drops the Non-Fighting Candy Ass Wildcats to 1 – 10 on the season with only a game against Illinois left on the docket…the High Tea + Crumpets Docket that is!

What happens to a football program when you go Total Candy Ass?

Northwestern Football right now is the answer to that question so any coaches out there thinking of following Pretty Boy Patty Boy down the Yellow Lollipop Non-Brick Road of Total Candy Ass don’t do it…Just Don’t Do It!

3.  David Shaw, Stanford > Only David Shaw down by 10 points at the end of a football game would run a field goal kicker onto the field to try a meaningless field goal in the Candy Ass Game between Stanford and Cal and what a Perfect Summary for Stanford Football the last 4 seasons…

Kicking A Meaningless Field Goal for what reason exactly?

To sooth the egos of Worthless Candy Asses that wouldn’t know how to play the Game of Football on the best day of their lives?

The Last 4 Seasons David Shaw’s record at Stanford is now…wait for it…

14 – 27

Stanford coulda have hired Any Damn Drunken Rodeo Clown who fell off the Cal Train at the Palo Alto Station and made him Head Football Coach at Stanford and done better than that but then Any Damn Drunken Rodeo Clown wouldn’t have turned Stanford Football into Total Candy Asses who don’t know how to…

Block, Tackle, Hit, Run, Do Damn Anything that has Anything To Do With the Game of Football in America!

To say that Stanford Football is a Damn Disgrace to Stanford, to College Football, and to the American Republic and its People is Self-Evident but what may not be Self-Evident to folks that don’t follow Stanford Football closely is that in the Spring of 2019 David Shaw and the Stanford Coaching Staff were warned if they turned the Cardinal Football Players into Total Candy Asses it would be a Total Disaster and guess what happened…

Yep…A Total Freaking Damn Disaster!

Shameful….Just Damn Shameful….on Every Damn Imaginable Level!

4.  Danny Gonzales, New Mexico > We got to see New Mexico play football this past Friday night and now we know why Danny Gonzalez has been a Total Disaster in Albuquerque…

New Mexico is one of the Most Fundamentally Unsound Football Teams we have seen in 40+ years of watching College Football

…and now you know why Gonzales is sitting on a record of….

7 – 23

….in 3 seasons with the Lobos!

Surely this Total Disaster cannot continue!

5.  Neal Brown, West Virginia > West Virginia has a proud football tradition going back for decades now and Neal Brown in 4 seasons at WVU is now sitting on records of…

Overall > 21 – 25

Big 12 > 13 – 21

…and thus it’s Self-Evident why West Virginia will have a New Head Football Coach in 2023!

6.  Butch Jones, Arkansas State > The folks at Arkansas State are mighty proud of how far they have come with their football program in recent years and rightly so and thus Butch Jones in 2 seasons on the job at ASU sitting on records of….

Overall > 5 – 17

Sun Belt > 3 – 12

…has got to mean that Butch is about to get his ass run out of Jonesboro….Right?

7.  Philip Montgomery, Tulsa > Ole Philip has had a nice…make that Yo-Yo run….at Tulsa in the last 8 seasons posting….

4 Winning Seasons in 8 Years on the job

…and records of…

Overall > 42 – 53

AAC: 27 – 34

Surely this cannot continue at a place that is proud of their football as the folks in Tulsa are of theirs….Right?

Maybe it can…if you willing to Accept Average As Hell!

8.  Jeff Hafley, Boston College > After two seasons of 6 – 5 and 6 – 6 for Jeff Hafley at Boston College which is Average at Best at BC we expected the Eagles to be a little better in 2022 but they have been a Total Disaster and after a blowout loss at the hands of Notre Dame where it looked like the BC players were hardly trying the Eagles are 3 – 8 with only a game at reeling Syracuse left on the schedule.

Will Boston College bother to show up to play against Syracuse in a game they could easily win?

If not then Hafley should be fired right after the game!

9.  Mario Cristobal, Miami > Against a Clemson Team that has given up 20+ points in 6 of its 8 ACC Conference Games in 2022 Miami was only able to score 10 points and couldn’t get even 100 yards of Total Offense and like we said weeks ago in the Coaches Hot Seat Blog…

Either Mario Cristobal will get his hands off the Miami Offense and let the Canes run something above a Pee Wee Level Offense or Mario’s ass will be run right out of Miami!

The Canes are now 5 – 6 on the season with none of those wins coming against FBS teams with .500+ records and they got a game against Pittsburgh at home left to try and get to even Pitiful Bowl Eligible and if Miami cannot find a way to rally and win this game at home then Mario Cristobal will start the 2023 season on one of the Hottest Preseason Hot Seat in recent College Football History and will be at risk of getting his ass run right out of South Florida after only 2 years on the job if he posted another sub .500 record!

Don’t lose to Pitt now Mario!

10.  Jedd Fisch, Arizona > Arizona has looked better in Year 2 than Year 1 under Jedd Fisch but Facts Are Stubborn Things is what John Adams is to have reported to have said and in two years on the job Jedd Fisch’s records at Arizona now stand at >

Overall > 5 – 17

Pac-12 > 3 – 13

Recent Head Coaches Records after 2 seasons at Arizona >

Kevin Sumlin > 9 – 15
Rich Rodriguez > 16 – 10
Mike Stoops> 6 – 16

Can Arizona beat Arizona State on Saturday so that Jedd Fisch can at least match Mike Stoops 6 wins in his first two seasons at Arizona?

We sure don’t know the answer to that question but win or lose to the Sun Devils it’s still….

Post Week 11 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

1.  Jimbo Fisher, Texas A&M > You really gotta wonder about the Simple Intelligence of the people who work at Texas A&M University who don’t seem to have any understanding of what Texas A&M stands for or should be projecting into the world, because if anyone at Texas A&M had a Damn Clue about what Texas A&M stands for and is they would have NEVER hired…

Dennis Franchione
Mike Sherman
Kevin Sumlin
Jimbo Fisher

….to follow RC Slocum as the Head Coach of the Aggies!

There is a serious problem at Texas A&M that extends far beyond the Total Damn Disaster that is Jimbo Fisher’s football program in Aggieland and it is the so-called Leadership at A&M and the Top Boosters not knowing…

Just what in the Hell that Texas A&M University is all about!

It’s not about Jimbo Fisher who has created a Selfish, Self-Consumed, and Toxic environment with Aggies Football and was allowed to do so in our opinion in the blind pursuit of a National Championship but here’s a Newsflash for you Damn Morons running Texas A&M and sit in those fancy suites at Kyle Field that…

Don’t Know Your Asses From the Side of a Barn

…and proved it by first hiring Jimbo Fisher, second giving Jimbo a Totally Absurd Contract, and third extending that contract last year when a Total Gift from Heaven was sent to you and LSU wanting to hire Fisher that got your Totally Stupid Asses out of the that Totally Stupid and Absurd Contract with Jimbo!

Very Simply…the so-called Leadership at Texas A&M and Top Alums + Boosters are…

Very Stupid People that are not qualified to run a lemonade stand forget about a Great Institution like Texas A&M University and especially oversee the Aggies Football Program and it’s been this way for 2 Damn Decades now!

Reality is if you don’t count the Corona Virus Season of 2020 which was Total Horseshit Football from start to finish Jimbo Fisher’s Win/Loss Records at Texas A&M are >

Overall > 28 – 20

SEC > 14 – 18

Anyone with a 2+ IQ would look in the mirror and admit they are Total Damn Morons and raise the $86M and buyout Jimbo Fisher before Aggies Football is Totally Destroyed but what you gotta understand…

The folks that run and support Texas A&M University are…

Too Big of a Damn Cowards to admit the Truth that they are Damn Morons and even if they did run Jimbo’s ass out of College Station none of them have the have the Simple Common Sense to go hire a…

Real Football Coach!

…to replace Jimbo!

Not A Damn One of Them!

2.  Pretty Boy Patty Boy Pat Fitzgerald, Northwestern > Pretty Boy Patty Boy and his Non-Fighting Wildcats got their asses handed to them again…

This time by that Powerhouse Football Program Minnesota

….to drop to 1 – 9 on the season and what can we say about Pretty Boy Patty Boy that we haven’t already said this season beyond Pretty Boy Patty Boy…

Those are some mighty Pretty Non-Football Players you got there at Northwestern

…and we would recommend you not get your team into a disagreement with the Northwestern Chess Club because those Boys….

Would Whip You and Your Non-Fighting Players Asses and Make You Like It!

Anyone out there in America wants a coach that can turn your football team into a bunch of…

Damn Candy Asses

…too give Ole Pretty Boy Patty Boy up in Evanston a call because he’s your Boy for sure!

Northwestern at 1 – 9 has left in 2022 >

At Purdue
Illinois

Got 1 – 11 Pretty Boy Patty Boy?

Your ass is about to have it Son so Pass the Tea and Crumpets because it’s High Tea time in Evanston which is pretty much around the clock these days in Evanston!

3.  David Shaw, Stanford > What can you do but laugh at what a Total Laughingstock that Non-Football Stanford Cardinal program is now because for Damn Sure these Boys and that’s what they are from David Shaw on down…

Just Boys without a Damn Clue about Life or Anything Else

…who are now a Total Joke in the Pac-12 just like Stanford Football was before Jimmy Harbaugh got to The Farm in 2007!

The Big Game is this coming Saturday with the #3 and #4 Hot Seat Coaches facing off and both their Sorry Asses should not be coaching in this game and should have already been fired because they are both a…

Damn Disgrace to Stanford and Cal

….because of ONE SIMPLE REASON >

Neither are Coaching Football nor anything close to the Game of Football!

Tidily-Winks maybe…but certainly not Football!

4.  Justin Wilcox, California > Justin Wilcox firing his Offensive Coordinator and Offensive Line Coach like Captain of the Titanic rearranging the deck chairs as the ship was going down but come on now…

No one really cares whether Cal Football wins or not beyond Wilcox being able to keep cashing a check that his ass does not deserve to cash because…

Wilcox has Failed as the Cal Head Coach with a 29 – 35 record in 6 seasons and he should be fired but come on now…

No one really cares about Cal Football or The Big Game because it is now little more than a Farce of a Game between 2 programs that no longer play the Game of Football!

It’s Just Tidily-Winks!

5. Danny Gonzales, New Mexico > Dan Gonzales’s records at New Mexico >

Overall > 7 – 22

MWC > 3 – 18

What else is there to say?

Nothing…Just Damn Nothing!

6.  Ken Niumatalolo, Navy > Just like with David Shaw at Stanford a few years ago we knew totally that when Kenny Boy at Navy started talking about Non-Tackling in Practice that Navy Football was Doomed and Doomed it has been with Navy posting a record over the past 3 seasons of…

10 – 22

This is Very Simple Pretty Boy Patty Boy Fitzgerald, David Shaw, Kenny Boy >

If your ass doesn’t Practice the Game of Football your ass will NOT play the Game of Football in the Games you Damn Morons! Go to practice on Monday and Hit, Tackle, Block, and actually Practice the Game of Football and your teams will Improve Immediately in the next game but keep up this Candy Ass Horseshit…and you will turn your players into even Bigger and More Worthless Candy Asses you Damn Morons!

Just Damn Idiots!

7.  Brent Venables, Oklahoma > While Northwestern, Stanford, and Navy have a very simple problem to fix…

They are all coached by Total Candy Asses who have turned their teams into Total Candy Asses

…the problem at Oklahoma is a little different and what it boils down to is this >

A Lack of Leadership by Brent Venables that has led his Sooners team to not believe in what he and his coaches are telling the players and the Oklahoma team plays like it doesn’t believe in their coaches but then to call Oklahoma a “Team” is a stretch because it certainly isn’t anything close to a “Team!”

We could fly to Norman on Monday and fix the problems with Oklahoma Football with 1 Meeting and 3 Practices of the team this week but that’s not going to happen so either Brent Venables figures this out and quick or he’s gonna get his ass run right out of Norman!

The now 5 – 5 Sooners have left in 2022 >

Oklahoma State
At Texas Tech

We Highly Recommend you beat the Pokes on Saturday Brent…Highly Recommend…because you lose this game Son the amount of HEAT that’s gonna be brought by Sooners fans will be something neither you nor anyone on your staff has ever experienced before!

1 Meeting and 3 Practices and it’s fixed….easily!

8.  Steve Sarkisian, Texas > We have always liked Steve Sarkisian a Helluva Lot going back to first time we ran into Sark when he joined Pete Carroll’s staff at USC and Sark is a good guy who wants to do things right and we would like nothing more than for Sark to Win and Win Big at Texas but Son….

This is nothing short of a Total Damn Disaster at Texas right now!

Sarkisian is now 11 – 11 in 2 seasons at Texas and NO Head Coach who has started with a record like that in Texas Football History has been able to hang around for long so with the Horns now at 6 – 4 on the season with these games left >

At Kansas
Baylor

We recommend Sark win both those games and especially don’t lose to Kansas on Saturday…NO don’t do that Son!

9.  Tom Allen, Indiana > We take no joy having Tom Allen on the Hot Seat but Tom…the last 2 seasons Son…

Overall > 5 – 17

Big Ten > 1 – 15

…what in the Hell is going on here Tom?

The 3 – 7 Hoosiers have left in 2022 >

At Michigan State
Purdue

That’s probably 3 – 9 after going 2 – 10 in 2021!

What in the Hell is going on here Tom?

Gotta be something and since we aren’t at the Indiana practices to see what it is Tom you need to figure it out…what are you doing wrong because you are doing something wrong and you better Damn figure out what it is and quick!

10.  Neal Brown, West Virginia > Word is in the Hollars of West Virginia that the Power and $$$ Folks at WVU want to fire Neal Brown and we can see why with Neal sitting on these records >

Overall > 21 – 24

Big 12 > 13 – 0

That’s not going to cut it at West Virginia and with WVU now at 4 – 6 with these games left >

Kansas State
At Oklahoma State

We would guess that it would take West Virginia winning both their remaining games to just give Brown a chance of hanging onto this job!

Thank You Mr. Cash and….

Post Week 10 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

1.  Jimbo Fisher, Texas A&M > You gotta feel for the Average Texas A&M Football Fan because…

They got a Head Coach that 95% of Aggies fans would love to fire tomorrow and yet…

They cannot fire Jimbo’s Ass because they would own him $86M Large if they did!

Got Damn Lunacy on Steroids?

Yep and what a Helluva Lesson that no one in College Athletics will learn a Damn Thing from but here’s the Real Kicker and hold onto your sides because your ass is about to breakout laughing like a Hyena drunk on East Tennessee River Moonshine >

If the Aggies fire Jimbo’s Ass after the 2023 season they will owe him…wait for it…

$77M Large!

As one Aggie Buddy of ours in Houston told us on Sunday…

“Desperate Times call for Desperate Measures and since our Aggies asses are in a sling here with Jimbo there are 500,000 Aggies alums in the world today and if each one of them just donated $172 each we could fire Jimbo’s Damn Ass this afternoon! Just for good measure I will throw in $1,720 to really get the ball rolling and Hell if we lose to Auburn this coming Saturday make that $17,200!”

Oh…the Aggies go to Auburn on Saturday to play a fired-up Tigers team under Cadillac Williams and you know what that means…

Aggies and Jimbo about to get their asses handed to them on The Plains by a team with an Interim Head Coach and Roster that has about 50% of the Talent of Texas A&M!

$172 Per Aggie…Time To Pony Up Aggies and end this Damn Stupidity before it gets really bad in Aggieland and you ain’t no where the Rock Bottom that is coming Aggies…trust us on that one!

2.  Pat Fitzgerald, Northwestern > Ole Pretty Boy Patty Boy and his Non-Fighting Wildcats lost another game on Saturday and over the last 4 seasons for Pretty Boy Patty Boy that’s a record of…

14 – 28

….which a Perfect Pretty Boy Patty Boy Winning Percentage of…wait for it…

.333!

Pass the Tea & Crumpets because Mr. .333 Pretty Boy Patty Boy is on a number that rhymes with…

Tea, Tea, Tea

…which his Non-Fighting Wildcats take each day at High Noon instead of practicing and then they have a Fun, Fun, Fun Goose Down Pillow Fight in a warm room inside the Northwestern Athletic Complex because Pretty Boy Patty Boy’s players can’t be getting their little tushes cold now outside….no we can’t have that!

The Non-Fighting Wildcats with a loss on Saturday are now at…

1 – 8

….on the season and have left games against….

At Minnesota
At Purdue
Illinois

Got 14 – 31 the last 4 seasons which would be a Winning Percentage of .311 for Pretty Boy Patty Boy?

Great Thing is .311 Rhymes with….

Tea + One + One = Tea + 1 Crumpet + 1 Goose Down Pillow for All the Non-Fighting Wildcats Players = Oh So Special!

3.  Butch Jones, Arkansas State > The Butch Jones Era at Arkansas State the last 2 seasons summed-up in a movie clip >

That Is All!

4.  David Shaw, Stanford > If you know a Damn Thing about the Game of Football you can Hear a Great Football Practice going on instead of having to See It and the Stanford alums at Coaches Hot Seat noticed something beginning in the 2018 season when they on the Stanford campus that really cranked-up in the Spring and Fall before the 2019 season that they started talking about a lot years ago now >

Stanford Football was no longer practicing Football but were instead what one Coaches Hot Seat Member described as “Glorified Tiddly-Winks!”

Well…since Stanford Football began their Glorified Tiddly-Winks Horseshit their Head Coach David Shaw has posted a record the last 4 seasons of…

14 – 25

This is what creates trust, what enables you to get the task done.”
