Owl demise

Intense balding coaches gone, over weed use!

   CBS Sports is reporting this evening that Florida Atlantic head coach Carl Pelini and defensive coordinator Pete Rekstis have resigned under pressure after admitting to illegal drug use at a recent social event. Apparently the two coaches were escorted off campus by police, and a search for a new Owl head coach is already underway. I’m stunned.

     I shot the above pic from row 24, and I think Pelini is the coach whose head is right between Sammie Coates’ knees. Rekstis is right between the “4″ and the “0″ on the field, directing traffic for the FAU defense. It’s too bad for the Owls, because I think this staff was making progress with the program.

    It only takes a few minutes on the web to decide that FAU is better off than allowing this person to handle anything more complicated than a broom. He rivals Kiffin in judgment and Petrino in morals (see how/why he left Nebraska). My guess is FAU was desperate when they hired him or someone fronted his salary as a donor. With his trail of dirty laundry, only a dry cleaner would want to see him anywhere near an NCAA program. Good riddence. Maybe there’s an opening on Saban’s staff?

    Pot – poor decisions- any questions? I have a relative who smokes pot on a regular basis and claims it does not affect your life and she makes the same kinda of poor decisions on a regular basis. When will they learn…….there’s a reason they call it dope dope heads.

    Wow. Tough week to be an Owl.

    So I’m guessing that Pellini doesn’t have cataracts-because if he did that would explain a lot.

    Holy cow! That job went up in smoke.

    I guess Pelini should have stuck to drunk driving since that would have only gotten him a 1 week suspension…

    Unbelievable! Man, talk about a name brand taking a major, I mean MAJOR hit.

    Pelini is on egg shells at Nebraska… his brother is a drug user.

    Wow.

    Give me a Tommy T or Gus M any day.

    Heck, for that matter, I would even take a Mean Gene Chizik…who couldn’t coach his way out of a paper bag. He has no grit or temper at all apparently. Nor does he believe in practice. Sort of like I don’t believe he deserves a salary.
