It is a sad, sad day. . .

Miami Offensive Coordinator and Professional Counter Patrick Nix has been relieved of his duties by Head Coach Randy Shannon.

Nix says that the problem was a philosophical difference, and that he wanted to open things up and go more wide open. Shannon might characterize the philosophical divide differently. After fielding the 89th best total offense in D1-A, Shannon just felt like they needed to score more points and move the ball. Such shortsightedness.

This does free up Bulldog fans' favorite molder of young quarterbacks to take a breather, take stock, and look for new opportunities. Like at Tennessee. Please Coach Kiffin, hire Patrick Nix. And Ed Orgeron. A staff that includes Nix and The Orgeron could provide half this blogger's content in 2009. It would be the solar power of sports bloggery, a clean, renewable source of low cost hilarity. Make it happen, Kiffy. This is a matter of national security.

Back later today with, and I can't believe I'm writing this, Cocktail Tuesday. Until then . . .
