Vanderbilt, This is What Happens When You Elect to Ride a Bull Named Facebook

As of this writing, Vanderbilt, owner of 100% of the land in Vaught-Hemingway Stadium since 2008, has decided that they will announce their new coach via this Facebook page.  An interesting idea, sure, because it's never been done before.  However, there's probably a reason for that.  They've allowed commenting on the page from anyone who has a Facebook account.  As you might imagine, order and sanity lasted about as long as it did on that island in Lord of the Flies.  Though, I don't think they've started killing pigs or one another over there.  Yet.

So before someone at Vandy logs in and sees the shitstorm on their Facebook page, which will immediately be followed by the Vandy people in charge of whatever they're in charge of getting together and discussing how this was a good idea during some bullshit committee meeting, let's examine how this disintegrated rather quickly.

(By the way, for those of you who have been or are employed in an office environment, I think you'd agree that there is absolutely nothing worse than a meeting where anyone is allowed to throw out ideas.  The non-creative types immediately start talking and waste everyone's time with their dumbassery and attempts to justify their existence.  Then, when the creative types throw out ideas that, you know, don't suck, these assholes sort of cock their heads and say, "Hmmm, I don't know.  What about if it was this------", and launch into another horrible idea.  Meetings suck.)

This seems rather civil and informative.

Uh oh, I think I just saw a wheel fly off.

Ladies and gentlemen, Ron Prince!

It jumped up a bit, didn't it?

Right about now, Vandy's Facebook person just threw up on their desk.

And right about now, they just lost their job.

I lost count, but this could be the first time in history Ron Prince was mentioned in 72 straight posts on Facebook.

And this entire exercise is why the Internet is AWESOME.

And this thing finally reached the point is was expanding faster than I could take screen shots. Well, that and reading through 193 posts probably would have stopped being fun around number 70. UNLESS YOU LOVE READING ABOUT RON PRINCE.

Do it, Vandy. Make this happen so I can cheer for a team that will absolutely lose to Ron Prince's coaching abilities.

Commodore Ron Prince!
