With the recent news of West Virginia offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen being removed from a casino for being a little too rowdy and yesterday's report that Holgo The Barbarian has been involved in six alcohol related incidents in the last six months, I think it's fitting to continue the summer TUG Classic series with a piece I originally wrote about Holgorsen on December 6, 2010, amid rumors that the skulleted one would possibly become UF's new OC. We were so close to having this crazy son-of-a-bitch running the offense. I would gladly take a drunk, belligerent Dana Holgorsen as OC over a sober Steve Addazio every day of the week. I suppose Will Muschamp as head coach is a nice consolation, though.

The dog days of summer are upon us, which means things are winding down in Florida athletics. The baseball, softball, and lacrosse teams are all making impressive runs towards a national championship. I, however, am too lazy, uninspired, and distracted by other interests to write anything this summer. I need to charge my battery before football season. So, to prevent this place from resembling a ghost town, periodically throughout the summer I will repost some classic stories that were originally written on the Facebook page (Hint: Go 'Like' it if you haven't already). And by "classic", I mean that in the loosest possible way. If there are any stories you'd like to see reposted, just let me know.
This game recap was originally written on October 10, 2010 following UF's heartbreaking 33-29 loss to LSU. (I know, what a great way to start this "TUG Classic" series with a story about a loss. I didn't get to write very many positive stories last year. This will probably be a theme.)
While standing in the backyard of a middle-class white family's home in the suburbs, President Obama announced his pledge to bring change to the dismal Florida offense. "Gator fans come up to me all the time and say they're sick of it. And I don't blame them," said Obama. "They see places like Oregon and Michigan, where their spread offenses are thriving and don't understand why theirs isn't as well. I'm here to help. My administration and I are going to roll up our sleeves and figure out a solution to these problems that are plaguing this team."
Democrats are in the process of creating a bill that would remove offensive coordinator Steve Addazio. Republicans, however, remain adamant in their support of Addazio saying that removing him at this point in the season would cause the offense to completely crater. The democrat heading this bill is Florida congresswoman Corrine Brown.
