I'm the only person who cares about this

Is this a picture from the latest episode of Dateline's To Catch a Predator? No, if you look closely this guy doesn't have a gravy stain on his shirt, so he can't be an internet perv. This is Steve Kragthorpe, the man who, in less than a full season, has ruined the University of Louisville football program.

KRAPthorpe, as he's known locally, inherited a team that last season went 12-1 and won the Orange Bowl. He lost a few players on defense, but all of the offense returned, including a quarterback who turned down NFL riches to play his senior season in his hometown.

Let this be a lesson to you kids: Go pro early! This season, under the "leadership" of this man and his incompetent band of assistants, the team is 5-6 with one game to go. They lost yesterday by the score of 51-17. That's a lopsided loss for those of you who don't follow the game.

As if that wasn't enough, the team has been highlighted as an example of complete and utter failure by both ESPN and Sports Illustrated, so our shame has gone national.

After a home loss at the hands of a 38-point underdog (the second largest point spread upset in the history of gambling!) Louisville's athletic director had the titanium testicles to say "Steve is the perfect coach to rebuild this program." Ok, but it didn't need to be rebuilt until he broke it!

When I was younger they used to give University of Louisville football tickets to school kids who had perfect attendance, and even they didn't show up. "No, it's cold out. I don't want to catch pneumonia watching shitty football and miss school," they said. At other times they'd sell tickets at local convenience stores for $5. It cost more to go to a flea market. A couple more seasons like this one and everyone's invited to a game, my treat.

Other people care about this too.

Too bad they aren't here.

It's the son of bitch Petrino's fault. At a minimum, at least he is getting humiliated this season as the Mullett predicted he would when he bailed on the Ville. Krapthorpe is the Norv Turner of College Football.

Yeah, it also has nothing to do with Louisville's easy ass schedule last year.

their schedule was much easier THIS YEAR, mainly because Georgia Tech used a buyout clause and paid Louisville to NOT play them. They were replaced on the schedule at the last minute by Murray State.

In other words, you don't know what the fuck you're talking about.

Sick burn. In your face, Nick.

Mmm...easy ass.

Could be worse. They could have Norv Turner as a coach.

Murray State? There's a school called "Murray State?" That's hilarious.

Anthony - That happens a lot when I just make things up and then say them. Fact checking is for fine publications and news organizations like The New York Times and Fox News.

Besides, I was just being inflammatory. Like your mom's herpes.

There are bigger problems to worry about here folks. Mr. Whipple died today.

I'm tired of looking at that guy's face.

Hey, vast right wing guy, let's find something to agree on.


Hating the Yankees? Surely we can agree on that!?

You both like Aurellio's Pizza!

I know from IM that there's an Aurellio's in Ubie's neighborhood. She and her family eat there often.

Also, since Aurellio's may be the only good pizza in the Las Vegas area, Vast is a fan.

There you go.

Goddamn Krapfuck. He's Tom Jurich's buddy, too, so we get to enjoy his services for another, oh, 3 years minimum. At least Lloyd Carr up at Michigan has the decency to quit when his team gets beat by a joke team. AT least Pitino can coach and this should be a Final Four B-ball year.
