This is beyond embarrassing. No one is being helped by Jim Knowlton continuing to be the leader of our athletic department. Beyond the indifference to giving Wilcox (a coach who has a 6-25 record against winning FBS teams) an insane contract extension, beyond the Teri McKeever allegations of mishandling, he has proven he cannot hire nor keep his coaches accountable for results as evident by his refusal to fire Fox yet. And most importantly, his reckless handouts of extensions not only cost Cal $$$ but also craters fan support even more.

Cal sports hit an all-time low tonight and it's past time for a change.

Is there anyone other than Christ that pressure can be applied to such as a Board of Trustees, Executive Council or some other entity that Christ must answer to? UC Regents, obviously, but is there any such oversight committee at the campus level?

Each passing game will be an all time low. We will be 0-9 before we have a chance to win a game. And beating EWU is no sure thing.

At this point we should simply fire him and don't even hire a replacement. Let someone on the current staff take over without any extra pay or simply let the players coach themselves. We can't do any worse. My dead great-great-grandma can coach this team to zero wins.

With all due respect you dead great-great-grandma has more life in her than a Fox coached offense

Why do you want to wait until after the USC game?

Vindictiveness? Because I want Fox to have to play Arizona?

Because I want the team to rally with the interim HC and beat EWU.

Bump. Knowlton really going to let this team go 0-28 before he takes action on Fox, huh?

What would you do if we go 0-28 and Knowlton still doesnt fire Fox, citing "injuries" as an excuse for Fox's performance?

Is it bad that I can foresee that scenario happening? Fox is already the worst Cal basketball coach in our history... he's now going for the title of the worst college basketball coach EVER.

At least with Louisville, if they finish winless, it's because they have a new coach. We have a coach who is in his 4th year in... absolutely disgraceful that Jimbo is allowing this to continue.
