We Revert to Mackovician Form

Our wish at the moment is that this blog was equipped with the OnStar system so we could hysterically call some cool and collected operator for help. Why? We've just had our worst fears confirmed. The newspaper business is going in to toilet — and fast! John Mackovic, the former coach at Illinois, Texas and Arizona, and a former analyst at ESPN (the TV biz went in the porcelain long ago), is now a columnist at the Desert Sun in Palm Springs. Yes, the man who blew a crater-sized hole in the Arizona program from which it is still trying to recover. Mackovic was such a disaster in Tucson that Arizona Daily Star columnist Greg Hansen has refers to any Wildcat collapse as Mackovician in scope, or of Mackovician proportions.
