the Spread Eagle is no more

I don't know about you, but I thoroughly enjoyed the Tony Franklin Era.

Sadly, it appears now to be over.

In a bizarre turn of events, Franklin was fired hours before Wednesday's practice in preparation for Saturday's game against Arkansas after he and head coach Tommy Tuberville apparently had words.
Franklin had vowed just the day before that that the "old Tony Franklin" was back and had led a high-energy, up-tempo offensive practice.

Damn. We'll never know what the old Tony Franklin looks like. Oh, well ...
(Also, if you're interested in a job, call Jay Jacobs. Seriously.)
