Living in a Mad, Mad World

Mississippi Madman Ed Orgeron is back in the news. He finally confirmed what everybody knew: offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone has been fired. It is expected that Orgeron will announce next week that his team lost to Mississippi State, 35-14. Orgeron's first year at Ole Miss has been a doozy. It started when he introduced himself to the team by ripping his shirt off in a fit of rage. Then two of his hand-picked assistants were dismissed before the season began because of off-field transgressions. Orgeron provoked gales of laughter by saying he'd "build a fence around Memphis" and has been trying to recruit players off a Tulane team that was hammered by Hurricane Katrina. Geoff Calkins of the Commercial Appeal asks Mississippi fans, "Y'all comfortable with this?" (registraton).

Calkins is a homer that has always hated Ole Miss. Ole Miss' coach did nothing wrong in asking permission from Tulane about their players... it was actually considerate of him because most coaches in the SEC would do it without asking.
