And if that wasn't bad enough, Looks like Willem Dafoe went out for the German track team and made. it. Not sure if he's transitioning or not or to what exactly!

Have you considered maybe meeting him for a beer sometime, where you can have a heart to heart sit down with him and kindly suggest that he stop sucking at his job and constantly getting fired.

I’m not married to the beer idea. Just workshopping here.
No but since his offenses have finished about 30-40 spots higher than ours in offensive ranking over the last few years I've considered begging him to apply at UF....:lol2:

Zook was mopping floors at a bank out of necessity - he needed the money, and janitorial work was all he could get at the time. This narrative that he was supposedly a "vice president" and not dusting the blinds and vacuuming carpets in the evenings after closing time has always been hogwash. A personal friend of his was an executive at the bank and didn't want to embarrass him, and did so by showing him on the website as some kind of higher-up. They would parade him around in front of customers during the day every now and then so he looked legit - Zook was bored and had nothing else to do. His buddy even lent him the suit he would wear, as Zook had hocked his suits (and damn near everything else) to pay his debts. They thought having a former head coach supposedly on staff would be impressive to customers, but it ended up backfiring: after seeing Zook, scores of people took their banking business elsewhere. The "executive" experiment ended quickly.

Those at the bank have always denied he was a janitor, but he was spotted at least half a dozen times in the evenings through the blinds, scrubbing away - yellow gloves on and everything. Once he was even wearing one of those red bandanas on his head like Aunt Jemima. It really is the most honest, honorable, and useful work he's ever done.

How he lost all his money isn't fully known, but drugs and/or gambling is the most likely reason. He never really earned any of his outrageous pay during his coaching days, so it's poetic justice, I suppose. He survives these days on his social security.
No argument, other than the fact you provide no documentable sources for your extraordinary claims. Having said that, I'll always appreciate Zook for ruining the Nulls' dedication of what was supposed to be "Bobby Bowden Field at Doak Campbell Stadium", but what has ever since been known in my circle as "Ron Zook Field". I have regularly dropped that name in conversations with my Null family members and friends over the years, and it never gets old for me. In my mind, Zook will always get credit for that most meaningful win.

We won in spite of him that day, not because of him.

Ron Zook the janitor cannot be doubted. Id give you two loonies if I could. Frankly he was a little too slow for the job and took a long time in his apprenticeship. No one said he was a good janitor.

In many respects, yes. But Zook was famous for getting his teams up at certain points in the season that made no sense, usually once the damage was done and there was little to play for(‘02 uga, ‘03 lsu, ‘03 uga). Once the pressure was gone, and we were out of any real contention for anything, he could rally the troops and pull off a win he had no business pulling off. That was that night.

We often glamorize what it would be like to hold a position as a CFB coach but I doubt many would be cut out for it. My buddy's older brother has been coaching in college for over 20 years and while it does pay well there is hell to pay for it too. Dude carries 3...yes 3 phones, which never stop, has a nice home close to campus but is never there, has had to pack up and move 5 times in the last 15 years and says it just keeps getting more and more hectic.

So he has to work?
The horror.

Not all of us have wives who wear the money pants.
