ND Coaching Search: The Movie | by Jay

These last few weeks have not been the feel-good comedy of the season. But they'd still make for a decent movie: lots of action (firings, hirings, people going ballistic in the press), some head-spinning plot twists (It's Urban! No, it's Clements! No, wait...), and loaded with mystery and intrigue (who really did fire Ty? Why did Meyer turn us down? And how many razors did Chandra have to go through to get that perfect sheen?).

We got together at BGS to cast the movie, which we plan to shop around to the studios. Here's who we have lined up so far:

I think that would make for a very, very mediocre movie.

    This was very funny. Although Dave Thomas is dead.

    Oh, and Francis.

    Why did you single out Dave Thomas again?

  4. Unfortunately, you got a picture of the wrong end of Francis.

    Great idea. I suggest, however, that you cast Bob Gunton (think Warden Norton in the Shawshank Redemption) for Pat McCartan. He's a spitting image, right down to the double-breasted suit.

  6. You're not kidding about Bob Gunton.

    Check out this still from Shawshank.

    Great call.

    Very clever, but the wrong end of the horse was used for Wilbon!
