Zook gets vote of confidence

And lays (another) egg.


I was just looking at the Illini page on Yahoo Sports. This is too funny. At the top of the page it says:
Illinois Fighting Illini
1-6 (0-5), 11th Big Ten
That's right Illini fans, you're 11th in the Big TEN!

Guys, it's official. Ron Zook is the worst coach in the history of the game of football. He took a great Gator program and made it mediocre and he's taken a terrible Illinois program and made it even more terrible, if that were possible. If you look up "Fluke" in the dictionary, the 2007 season is mentioned there as an example.

Have fun folks. I know I am.

Did I ever say he didn't do it before? It's just that I never noticed how ridiculous it sounds to be 11th in the Big TEN.

you for sure are just cheering for ron zook to lose so you can write in your blog. granted he's an awful coach but to say that he took a terrible team to even more terrible depths is just bad logic. I think ron zook needs to resign because he is completely out of his league and a horrific coach, but to bask in his defeat is gloating of the worst kind. Then again, if he didn't keep losing what would you be writing about? Bring in EDDIE!

But thats the point, Zook will ALWAYS be losing, so theres always something to write about. Zook took a terrible program and not only kept it terrible, but destroyed it for years to come. He is completely inept as a coach, and you can ask any player what they think of him off the record. You will definitely hear things a bit differently than what you hear in the paper (I'm not making this up, they fucking HATE him).
The point is the man just needs to go. Its year 5, a year in which a new coach's promised program should peak. Instead, we are worse than we were when that piece of shit took over.
One last statistic to leave you with, and if this doesn't convince you he is the worst coach in the history of football, then you will simply never be convinced: Illinois, under Ron Zook, has only ONE (1) win in which they overcame a halftime deficit. People, this means that when Illinois is losing at halftime THEY LOSE EVERY TIME!! Sounds like an inspirational halftime speech to me, fucking losers

Students, alumni, and shit, probably the players from Illinois dislike Zook as much as you do, trust me, I go there.

He's an awful coach, somehow he's taken an offense with some of the most potential in Illinois's history and made them fucking fail. And when you think that the athletic department would wake up now that our team is 1-6 (0-5), Ron Gunther has the gall to announce this:

According to espn announcers, Gunther has said "Ron zook is not only the guy for this year, but for 2010 as well" ...

Give me a damned break...

That just goes to show that birds of a feather,stick together! That AD must be the dumbest mother fucker to ever hold the position!
He obviously doesnt give a rats fuck about the football team,or Zook would be out on his ass right now!

Anon at 5:34,

Zook has given me plenty of potential material to write about this season but you'll notice that the content of this blog has been very light. I could easily pile on a lot more.

The source of my continued animus toward Zook after all these years is his arrogance. He continues to take swipes at UF and his successor. Why? Because he's a loser. He could have shut all of his critics (including me) up. All he had to do is deliver what he promised: teams that improve year over year leading to consistent winning. But he's not capable of it because his football IQ is frankly lower than that of the average fan.

I am an Illini alum, living in Fl. My daughter is a Gator alum. When Zook destroyed the Gator program, fireronzook.com became a favorite website, His home address was posted and people were talking about sending a moving van to his home, to pack him up & move him out. When he was finally fired, we all cheered. Shortly thereafter I was Zooked again. I knew that my beloved Illini were going to go downhill. At least my adopted favorite school got smart & hired Urban Myers. Until he is gone, the Illini will stay at the bottom.

Zook may be a bad coach, but you are a fucking loser. I went to Illinois and have not read the Daily Illini since graduation.

Let's just compare the whole internet to a human body.

On that body, this blog is an infected zit on the underside of the nutsack.

A few friends and I have just launched www.givezookthehook.com and are trying to publicize a little bit. I've read some of your posts and it seems we share strong feelings against the Zooker. I'm happy for you guys at Florida were able to get rid of him (though it meant he came to us), now we at Illinois want to do the same! Check out the website and if you can give us a shoutout, that would be awesome. Thanks!

Just out of curiosity, Baghead, what swipes has he taken at UF recently?

In all honesty, the only thing he's said lately was in response to Urban Meyer bringing up Zook's tenure at Florida for no reason.

Now, why a coach with two national titles needs to continue to dump on the regime before him - seems unnecessarily defensive in my opinion.

Whatever. What you should really be talking about is the fact that our idiot athletic director refuses to fire him this season.

You are forgetting Ron Zook's protegee at New Mexico - Mike Locksley. He may rank as the worst coach in college football. Loosing to NMSU and UNLV takes a special talent. Add on a sexual harassment case and an assault and you have a special coach.

Knothead, Yes but it does command your attention doesn't it?

Bag Knothead said...

Not really. The blog is kind of like the two 300-pound lesbians that used to live in the apartment down the street from me in college. It wasn't something I really cared to see every day, but I still went by every now and then just in case something interesting was happening over there.

Whatever the case, thanks for your continued readership.
