The observer’s 11-year-old grandson, already a confirmed Card fan, asked to weigh in on the coaching controversy after thinking about it for a couple of days. Edited only for spelling, his comments are pretty insightful. Here they are:

“To be or not to be.” In the words of William Shakespeare. Many people are saying the same thing about Coach Steve Kragthorpe. I am saying the same thing. Kragthorpe could not have let the fans down any more than they already are. Well, yes he could. Fridayâ€™s loss to the Bearcats has added his 11th loss to his career as a Louisville Cardinal. The way I see it he could win the next two games and be better than last year or win one, lose one and be the same as last year and the other possibility is well, just plain ridiculous. He has been given too many chances and I say get him outta there. We were once feared by every team in the country, and now weâ€™re not on the map.
I believe that the only reason to our success is because of Jeff Brohmâ€™s play calling. And of course Hunter Cantwell. The game on Friday looked like we were going to win but as the game progressed the players and the ball got wetter. I saw a play were Cantwell threw the ball right at Doug Beaumont and he let it slip right out of his hands. The stadium was supposed to have an expansion, and now I donâ€™t think that they will have enough attendance to pay for it. So I end on this note: Steve Kragthorpe, to be or not to be?
