Ron Prince Latest to Get Axed Midseason

Ron Prince is the latest in the midseason firing bandwagon that Clemson made fashionable:
The Wichita Eagle, as well as several other Kansas media sources, are reporting that K-State has called a press conference at 4 p.m., at which head coach Ron Prince will announce his resignation.
You should mentally replace "resignation" with "firing," as the Wildcats are 16-18 in Prince's three years and their latest JUCO-mad recruiting class isn't getting it done.

This isn't much of a surprise. Prince was a weird hire from the word "go." At the time of his hiring he had been the offensive coordinator at Virginia for four years, in which time UVA had never lost fewer than four games. The year before he got picked, the Hoos averaged 27 points per game, which would be good for 57th nationally this year. He was completely unremarkable. And yet, here he is.

Now he's gone.
