Letters to the editor? Please. These days, when fans want to dis a college football coach, they buy a domain name. Internet sites calling for coaches' heads are spawning faster than you can say coachpmustgo.com—which is the place to deride Syracuse's Paul Pasqualoni. The perceived shortcomings of Tennessee's Phil Fulmer can be discussed on firecoachfulmer.com, and Michigan State fans have firebobbywilliams.com. The gold standard, however, is fireronzook.com, a site named for the Florida coach that offers merchandise and message boards and has received nearly 300,000 hits since it went up 24 hours after Zook was hired last January. "I tell my family, 'Don't read it. Don't worry about it," says Zook, "but it's there."
No fans have more Web wrath than Texas'. Inspired by the Zook site and incensed at Longhorns offensive coordinator Greg Davis, Nate Carty, a portfolio manager and 1997 Texas grad, bought firegregdavis.com the day after Texas' 35-24 loss to Oklahoma on Oct. 12. The harsher gregdavissucks.com was started the same day by J.R. Ghaddar, a Texas fan from Austin. "We want our team to be better," says Ghaddar of the seventh-ranked, 7-1 Longhorns. "I was going to go with gregdavisplaycallingsucks. But it's too long."
