10:49 PM ET 11.15 | Just two years after winning the BCS National Championship, the Auburn Tigers have fallen from grace. The team has yet to win a conference game this season and their disappointing season has left fans disgusted and ready for a new regime to run the show. One fan took his disgust and frustration with the program to another level by using the website "We The People" to petition President Barack Obama to make a change at the top of the Tigers program. The fan called for the firing of Auburn athletic director Jay Jacobs and head coach Gene Chizik. FanSided.com has a copy of the petition that was sent to President Obama.

I think the President is still too busy fixing the BCS/4-Team playoff. But he'll get to fixing Auburn as soon as he's done fixing the economy.

Enough people have and are going to lose their jobs because of Obama, so what's one more?

I would have thought that since Al Gore invented and maintains the internet in TN that you would understand that you do not have to be in AL to get to that web site. ;-)


(Sorry for the political reference right after we said not to but I could not resist this one.)

That one made me snarf my pepsi.

It's always wonderful to be reminded that Al Gore invented the interwebz.

Well played sir.
