Modest Proposal v5.0: The Wrath of Tubbs.

So Bobby Petrino has taken the Atlanta Falcons' head coaching job. First of all, I just want to go on record as saying this was a bad idea, as the whole NFL-team-hiring-a-coach-straight-out-of-college never works (except when the Dallas Cowboys do it, for some reason). But I have an idea for the Louisville folks.

This past July, Petrino signed a 10-year deal (heh) with Louisville that, at its height, would've paid him $2.6 million a year. Auburn head coach Tommy Tuberville is entering the third year of a contract that started out at an even $2 million and will raise him $200,000 a year through 2011.

Louisville: Hire Tommy Tuberville. It would be, like, the funniest thing ever.

Is it too late to bump Petrino down on the "Most Loathsome" list?

Hey, numb-nuts- he was offensive coordinator for the Jags before going to Louisville, so its not like he doesn't have valid experience in the pros as well as exuberant success in college coaching.

Just like Nick Saban and Butch Davis, right?
