A Fire Karl Hobbs Site
What happens when a middle-of-the-pack Atlantic 11 team goes on a three-game losing streak thousands of miles from home, capped off by a 26-point loss to Hawaii and a narrow decision against a previously 1-10 MEAC squad whose only W came against Wilmington College? Well, among other things, the coach of that middle-of-the-pack team will be honored with possibly the first "FireThisCoach.com" Web site in Atlantic 11 poll history.
And so, meet Fire Karl Hobbs!, which was launched amid yesterday's Coppin State disaster, in a frenzy of pre-New-Year's cheer. Six posts in eight hours on Dec. 30! Pace yourself, guys.
But apparently the site is filling an ardently desired, if niche, demand. Yesterday's message board threads included "Disgrace," and the evocative "Some one should start the Fire Hobbs movement." Done and done.
In fairness, Coppin State, as usual, was playing an absolutely brutal pre-MEAC schedule, with one road game after another against massive BCS-conference powers. So maybe they were just due for a neutral-court win against an average to above-average DI school.
On the other hand, Coppin's one previous win, against Wilmington, by 19? Well, the Wildcats also have a 16-point loss to Felician, a 35-point loss to Kutztown, and a 39-point loss to West Chester. So if Kutztown is 16 points more dominant than Coppin, and Coppin is six points better than GW....well, I don't want to steal all of FKH!'s thunder.
