It's a Celebration Bitches: Tommy Amaker Fired

Unexpected. Unbelievable. Spectacular.

With the funk and feeling of a disappointing season still palpable, and a stinging lack of hope for the future looming, athletic director Bill Martin sacked up and pulled the trigger, firing men's basketball coach Tommy Amaker today. Bill said:

"This is the toughest decision I've had to make since I've been athletic director."

Considering his previous difficult decisions were deciding to continue to have Lloyd Carr as the football coach, Red Berenson as the hockey coach, and picking which home football games will be given "Maize Out" status, that's not really saying much. Joking aside, kudos to Billy for doing what we all knew was necessary, if not overdue. Now just get the facilities in order Mr. Martin, and we'll be all set for a true rebuilding year.

Oh, and now that he's gone, I never trusted that Duke-loving, mock-turtle-neck-wearing, no-talent-developing dork.
