    yeah he didn't play the race card and says it was performance based. Let's be honest here, we were not expecting a national championship this year. Embree set the goal for a bowl game himself and he fell embarrassingly short of the goal.

    Very reasonable.

    I was expecting us to get roasted. I suppose some asshat like Jesse Jackson might still make a fuss, but I think everyone who understands football even a little bit knows that this was a performance based termination.
