Fire Karl Dorrell? Sorry, It's Taken
You can see by the top photo why somebody could fall in love with the Notre Dame campus. It was sent to us by reader Jack, whose work appears at Beat S.C. And what a Saturday afternoon it was for UCLA — for 59 minutes. UCLA quarterback Patrick Cowen, making his second start, was sharp (middle images) and connected with Marcus Everett on a 54-yard touchdown pass (bottom image), the Bruins' longest scoring play of the season. Then the world came crashing down on UCLA, with Notre Dame's Brady Quinn engineering a three-play, 80-yard drive that drove a stake in the heart of the Bruins. Notre Dame 20, UCLA 17. The fall guy in all of this has been Bruin coach Karl Dorrell. He was ripped (as were Notre Dame and its "genius" coach Crewcut Charlie Weis) by L.A. Times columnist T.J. Simers. The good folks over at Bruins Nation have been on a rant all week, and angry fans have been flooding the forum at the Bruin Zone. All this got the Wiz thinking: Who owns the domain, Fire Karl Dorrell? We found out, but have agreed to keep his identity a secret. But what we can tell you is this: He claims to be a graduate of USC and would like to pass the following message to UCLA fans: "I am the registered owner of firekarldorrell.com. At this time, I do not wish to reveal my plan for the site. I would like to see UCLA keeps its current head football coach for many more years. Mr. Karl Dorrell has always been a calm gentleman whether his team loses by three points or six touchdowns."
