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).
