Week 11 at a glance

Saban gets Croomed

Tressel gets Zooked

Spurrier gets T-Boned

Michigan gets Badgered

and Notre Dame just gets plain embarrassed

Note: Charlie Weis is now 20-15. Tyrone Willingham was 21-15 in his career at Notre Dame.

Seems like all the Zook apologists in Gator Nation have crawled out of their mouseholes and started with all their "he put his heart into this program" sob-stories and trying to exonerate him for what he did at UF.

If Illinoise loses to Northwestern, I'd love to see the meltdown!

The reason we only have 21 upperclassmen on scholarship is because of Zook. He recruited players that helped us win the championship but that argument is flawed because it assumes that a competent coach couldn't have done as well.

Zook sucks in my opinion. He always manages to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. I won't predict a loss to Northwestern but it wouldn't surprise me either.

Henry, JJ here.

Couldn't agree with you more. I get so sick and tired of hearing "we won the NC with Zook's recruits" which is bullshit; SOS recruited some of the Class of 2002 who happened to be seniors that year, and the 2005 class in part gets credited in part to Meyer as well as ALL of 2006.

Zook left some gaps on our roster, which the apologists refuse to accept. WHY was Meyer forced to move players to other positions to cover these deficiencies in 2005? I'd love to hear the Zookites explain that one.

As far as I'm concerned the best thing Zook ever did at Florida was get fired. He does indeed snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

Another thing I've noticed: after major wins at Illinoise, there seems to be a skirmish on the field afterward - last year it was between the Zooks and Michigan State, this year it was Ohio State. WHY the need for his kids to act like goons after a major win? Lack of discipline, that's why.

Ron Zook is an idiot. Let's see how long the Illini failthful go gaga over Zook if he doesn't have a successful season in 2008.
