For those of you who may not follow MAC football, you probably don't know, or maybe even care who Stan Parrish is.
Parrish was the Ball State OC in 2008 when the Cards made their run at a BCS at large before flopping in the MAC title game. He was named interim coach when Brady Hoke pulled a Benedict Arnold and left for San Diego State.
Since then he saw his team get trounced in the GMAC bowl, got hired as the permanent head coach, and has won a meager 3 games total in Muncie.
Sure this is only his 2nd season at the helm, but the guy only has 5 wins total in his career that spans more than 4 decades.
The Cardinals have not been able to recruit under Parrish, and have watched what was once a potent offense go stagnant.
The most recent embarrassment was this past weekend where the FCS Liberty Flames came in to Muncie and beat Ball State.
Simply put, this program is heading back to the dark days of the late Bill Lynch era that saw them lose 20+ games in a row and be the laughing stock of college football.
Stan Parrish will be and should be gone before the Cards take the field in 2011, if not sooner.
