The older gentleman seen above running around like an idiot after Ed Orgeron somehow managed to hammer the last nail into his own coffin while INSIDE the coffin, is the great NFL-career assistant and former Mississippi State head coach Sylvester Croom. Last seen headed back to the NFL to resume coaching running backs, Croom has incredibly emerged as a candidate for an opening on Nick Saban's staff at Alabama. Saban has refused to comment, citing his focus on recruiting and having his memory chip erase all memories of Croom's time at Mississippi State.

Because anytime you can hire a coach who has a career record of 21-38 (10-30 in SEC) and spent 227 years anonymously coaching running backs in the NFC North, you have to do it. However, odds are that if Croom is hired (PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE), he will be given the least amount of responsibility possible. Perhaps something along the lines of calling roll or putting one of Alabama's golf carts to use, but the point is, by just being there, he will start the crack in the Nick Saban-will-destroy-all-of-us foundation. You don't bring on coaches of Croom's caliber and get away with the giant crater of suck he will create.

Of course, there's also the possibility someone just floated his name out there to see the public reaction and he has no chance of being hired. If that is the case, then I say you go straight to hell, name-floater person. How dare you extract my girlish giggle/scream/shriek with fake news.
