I'd like to see Ed Orgeron coach this guy. Or Pat Summitt, for that matter.

Imagine the fireworks:

"I'm really not a disciplined running back," Williams said. "I run my way. I've had coaches who have tried to teach me how to do this, do that. And I just can't do it. At first, it didn't sit well with Coach Hite at all. He's constantly [saying], 'Hammer the hole, hammer the hole. Hammer, hammer, hammer.' He wants to see contact non-stop. I didn't listen to him that much. I try not to make the contact. I try to make the people miss.

"It's not like I can't run between the tackles or anything. I just choose not to."

Sweet, a guy that completely uncoachable. No risk of discipline problems here. None at all. 2-1 odds he ends up arrested before he's eligible to get drafted.

Why are the Raiders so messed up?

I was going to say that first it was Kiffin, but then I remembered that the fuckeduptedness goes back waaaaaay farther than that. But really, this????

"Oakland Raiders head coach Tom Cable punched one of his assistants on Aug. 6 at the team's training camp headquarters in Napa, Calif., several media outlets reported on Monday.

"It's an internal issue, I'm not going to comment on that," Cable said on Monday, according to the San Francisco Chronicle."

Well, at least we know the police in Duuurty Chatt are good shots.

"CHATTANOOGA - Six Chattanooga police officers fired 59 bullets to subdue a suicidal armed man last month, a police spokeswoman said today.

A preliminary autopsy report shows the victim, Alonzo A. Heyward, 32, had 43 bullet holes in his body. Without question, those wounds led to his death, the medical examiner's report indicates. But police said the use of force wasn't excessive.

"When we are trained to shoot, we are trained to shoot until we subdue the threat," said Lt. Kim Noorbergen, police spokeswoman. "We are not trained to shoot to kill, as many people think.""

Um, it took 43 shots to "subdue" him? Really?

On a positive note, the cops went 43-59 on shots.
