Yeah finally someone gets to the main culprit behind all this and that's ... HARVEY PERLMAN. It was Harvey who hired SE without any input from Osbourne. He apparently couldn't get rid of ol Tom quick enough. Look at every bad decision made at NU for the last couple of decade and you'll find ol Harv skulking around in the background. "What's that Sean? You want to hire a 0.500 coach? Well ooookay. But its all on you hehehe."
They should rehire Perlman just to fire him properly instead of letting him slink off into the sunset.
