First Nutt and Now Ted Roof? What the Hell is the World Coming To?

Surprisingly, in the wake of a number of NCAA football coaches being fired, including the not-really-then-but- now-surprising "resignation" of Arkansas head coach and total badass Houston Nutt, it seems that Duke University has taken action and fired totally competent head coach Ted Roof. Roof boasted an amazing 6-45 record during his four-year reign as head of the Blue Devils program. Although Roof promised that his team could be bowl eligible "as early as 2008," his positive affirmation fell on deaf ears. However, it is not clear regarding whether he jut meant that Duke would be bowl eligible before the start of the season, through the sixth game, or whether he actually meant that Duke would play in a bowl game. Nah, he couldn't be mean the latter statement could he?

on roof... it seems that playing 2 years with only 1 win will be harmful to your career. roof was well liked here, but you gotta win a few (2 of his 6 wins were during his first 3 games, so actually he's 4-44 since). anyway, i'm hoping they hire someone that runs the spread offense. duke can't match up physically with anyone, so at least they can be exciting to watch and maybe they'll get lucky every now and then. it worked at Univ of Houston. After they went 0-10 they hired a coach that ran a version of the spread and now they are winning conference championships.
