ESPN reports that John L. Smith is gone from Michigan State at the end of the year.
He literally means that bit about being taken to a bowl game. John's buddy Joel is a member of the board of trustees - if Michigan State makes a bowl game, MSU literally takes this guy and his family, his dog, his mistress (if he has one) and their cousins all to wherever the bowl game might be, probably a warm vacation-like place.
Coaching at Michigan State strikes me much like going out with a psychotic woman, except that you don't find out she's psychotic until too late into the relationship. At least Smith is getting a buy-out. That's more than *you* got, right??? Ha Ha!
I don't think John L Smith was crazy when he went there, the place made him crazy. Being fired could be the best thing that ever happens to him, just like leaving there was good to that bastard Nick Saban, whose team is a loser this year (just thought I'd point that out).
Okay, Who's Next?
