Wasn't it Venturi who took over the year that Mora had his meltdown and won just enough games in that joke of a season to take us out of the running for Peyton in the draft?

Gotta hate that guy

Where\'s that post on Venturi when you need it? If I remember correctly, last season was the first time in his career (or close to it) that he has EVER been a head coach or top coordinator on a winning team. EVER!!!! I hate him.

Gentlemen, Jim Haslett had a chance to rectify this problem with Zook took the UF job. Instead of getting a Woody Woodenhoffer or Dave Campo he wen\'t with moron Venturi. Well, it\'s a giant crap sandwhich and we ALL have to take a bite.

You want to laugh, it was Haslett that pushed to take Molden over Eddie George. I guess the organization thought Mario Bates was the second coming!
