Calling all BON attornies, law students, and wannabes for a mock trial

      Since we are blessed with a number of attornies and many other intelligent people capable of carrying on a rational argument, I thought it might be fun to set up a mock trial and see if anything constructive, edifying, or just plain fun might come of it.  (Disclaimer:  I'm not an attorney nor do I play one on TV, thus I don't know a whole heck of a lot about court proceedings, so if this is evident in how I set this up, feel free to enlighten me.)

Here are the hypothetical particulars:

-Greg Davis is suing the university for wrongful termination or wrongful forced resignation, if the hypothetical universe will allow such a riduculous charge.  He is citing his past success and claiming that he was not at fault for the poor offensive ouput of this past season, therefore he was wrongfully forced to resign.  

-Now, choose your side as either defendent's or plaintiff's counsel and present your opening arguments.

-As self-appointed judge presiding over these proceedings, I ask that everyone keep your arguments civil, carefully reasoned and supported by factual evidence whenever possible.

** Edit:  It has been brought to my attention that this whole thing is ridiculous in the first place when measured against the actual laws of the State of Texas, therefore, I rescind my request for rational argument.  Just have fun with it if you can. Be ridiculous, silly, insane, whatever floats your boat.  I wanted it to be fun above all else in the first place. **

      So, take this opportunity to be Denny Crane, yourself if you're an attorney, or one of the trashy people from judge judy if that's your thing and let's see if we can learn something from each other while having a little fun.  

      Finally, I feel I should mention that although I am quite happy to see some changes being made and thought that GD needed to hang up his OC hat, I feel for the guy and appreciate what he has done for our football program in the past and for our players.
