TOM CABLE IS THE NEW SCOTT LINEHAN

September 30, 2008

TOM CABLE

The Oakland Raiders finally pulled the trigger and fired beleagured head coach Lane Kiffin today.

Kiffin’s replacement is Tom Cable  who was named interim coach of the Raiders. Cable has a horrifically bad record as a head coach. He was 11-35 with the University of Idaho from 2000-2003. Idaho is, of course, the alma mater of vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin. She was at the school when the Vandals were voted the country’s Number One party school by Playboy magazine.

 

SARAH PALIN: PARTY ANIMAL

Raider fans will be encouraged to know that Idaho is the same school that famously produced Tom Walsh. He’s the bed-and-breakfast coordinator who ran Art Shell’s offense.

Idaho is also the coaching tree where Scott Linehan got his start. He was Idaho’s starting quarterback under Dennis Erickson.

Mosley defeated fading veteran Ricardo Mayorga in California Saturday night with a literal last-second knockout. Mosley knocked Mayorga out with exactly one second left in the twelfth and final round of their junior middleweight fight.

Although he struggled to put Mayorga away, Saturday’s win by Mosley sets him up for a possible big payday and a potential fight with Antonio Margarito.

ED HOCHULI

It seems like just the other day that NFL referee Ed Hochuli screwed up a call in the Broncos/Chargers game. Actually, it WAS just the other day that Hochuli screwed up. Now, he’s at it again.

Hochuli was involved in another controversial call in today’s Carolina/Atlanta game. Hochuli flagged Panthers defensive lineman Julius Peppers for roughing-the-passer on a play that wiped out a Carolina interception that was returned for a touchdown.
