Guillotine Drops, Ending Cut-Throat Act

December 13, 1986

In a typically classless act, the Zumberge-McGee team let the poised guillotine drop. Regardless of Ted Tollner's record, and 7-4 with a New Year's bowl is far from the shabbiest on the planet, his fate seems to have been a fait accompli since the 1-7 record against Notre Dame and UCLA the past four years.

A rose is a rose is a rose, and a factory is a factory is a factory, and Ted's production line was not in synch with his bosses. The leadership factor? Baloney! When we use the term leadership, check out the USC rooting section of spoiled brats that boo a team and coach that has served them for four years. The cut-throat act was absolutely gross as to its timing and lacking in common dignity. His final game must now be as a lame - duck coach. The terminology would be more appropriate for the university he represented.
