Syracuse football fans know a little something about living with a struggling football program. We understand how a poor team can drive down attendance. We know what it's like to want the head coach of your program fired.
We are still dealing with ramifications of the disastrous Greg Robinson era and the man has been gone for almost a year. We will be dealing with these issues for the next few years. Hell, half the blogs on the Orange Colored Links blogroll were launched to vent about the man.
Louisville is in the same boat. To say Steve Kragthorpe has not met expectations is an understatement. The guy lost to Robinson not once, but twice. He's the only coach in the country that can say that. At this pace, if he plays his cards right, Rich Rodriguez may hire him at Michigan next year.
Predictably, and justifiably, there has been a backlash from the fans, such as:
- The fire (insert coach's name) website in the form of Fire Kragthorpe Now.
- The online petition - Fire Louisville Coach Steve Kragthorpe.
- And of course ranting in online message boards.
However, whereas last year Sean decided to see if Greg Robinson wanted some Arbys, Louisville fans have taken to song to express their displeasure with their current coach. While they aren't original tunes like John Radcliff pens, they are pretty funny.
The first one was done last year:
And this year's updated version:
Ahh, terrible football coaches. They make game day an absolutely miserable experience, but they do inspire creativity during the week, so they've got that going for them, which is nice.
