I probably should have picked a different movie, maybe one whose failure is well publicized. Maybe Waterworld or Gigli? But I still think it works. The metaphor has nothing to do with the racial tensions of "Mississippi Burning," but moreso with the basic plot driver of a community split and on the verge of absolute destruction. And isn't that what's happening at UT under AD Mike Hamilton's direction?

His most important duty was to make the right hires and keep his coaches in compliance and/or protect them when they're not. He has brought the program from being envied to the NCAA's gallows.

Well, now that I know why you used it, it makes more sense. Before that, I was just worried about your sanity, especially in these stressful times for a Vols fan.

Future coaching searches aren't going to involve using tattoos on the backs of children are they?

Hamilton stated that he thinks the original failed because people were confused by the notion that a child had a tattoo, openly criticizing the thought that even in a hopeless World, a parent would consent of the child being tatted up. The sequel will involve a search for child with a port-wine stain in the shape of a coach smiling as he loses.
