ESPN: Cannizaro resigned due to affair

ESPN is the first media outlet to report what seems to be common knowledge about the firing of Mississippi State University Head Baseball Coach Andy Cannizaro:

Andy Cannizaro resigned as Mississippi State's baseball coach earlier this week after it was discovered he was having an extramarital affair with someone who works in the athletic department, sources within the Mississippi State athletic department told ESPN's Ryan McGee. Rest of article.

Kingfish note: Bob, what's up with the beard? Let the hair grown out and do the old man pony tail thing. Go all the way.

I keep seeing various social media references to something that's about to break regarding a 'Triangle' with Cannizaro and others. A caller to the Finebaum program three days ago said, 'This is going to rock the football world'.

I will eagerly anticipate somebody affiliated with either an automobile dealership or Rebel Rags verifying this rumor.

Andy's PR people are working on a few new concepts for marketing him:

Andy "Big Bat" Cannizaro
Andy "Smooth Swing" Cannizaro
Andy "Line Drive" Cannizaro
Andy "Hit that Thang" Cannizaro

I like the first and the last best.

Yes, we all assumed an affair was the reason for the resignation. But without more info, I'm still confused.

Why should an affair result in losing your job? Was the other woman a subordinate? Did she report to Caz?

Also, why did Caz wear his baseball shirts so tight? Yes you have big arms and flat belly, but you're 39 - that's the behavior of a 22yo guy trying to impress the ladies, not a nearly 40 married father.

8:56. . .That's hilarious. Please proceed to copyrighting all of those names ASAP! My personal favorite is "Smooth Swing".

Sure would be unfortunate if this thing snowballed and impacted Don Mullins. Very unfortunate.

I just came here to read the comments.
Sorry I'm late, I had to get popcorn for everyone.

Who is "Don Mullins?" I don't know of anyone by this name that has associated with MSU. Please explain who this person is.

10:26 - Don (9:48) is Dan's alter ego, who is part of the Triangle that 8:53 mentioned. Don can become Donna at will and it creates diversity in the program or "activities". Clear?? The only ones left out in the cold are the wife and 3 kids. Swinger Cannizaro struck out on this one I believe.

Anonymous said...

9:48 -- It's a convention of MSU fans to misspell his name intentionally, since so many called him "Mullens". Especially now that he's gone. You'll also see Dave Merlins, Don Marlins, and Dick Merkins.

Batter Up Britchez Down said...

And all this time I thought Dan was Cousin Eddie of 'Shitter's Full' fame.

I'm going with this for Cannizaro's handlers to use in marketing:

"The Louisville Slugger. Real Wood! References available upon request."

@1019 thanks for the popcorn, I’m out and it’s just not the same without it.

11:04 a.m. -- how many people do you think have "handled" Cannizaro?

Charlene Darling said...

Who is the Jezabell who seduced Cannizaro?
I want to find out than go to facebook to see how good his taste is. Pleaze help.

This lady is gone from State and now at UF Dan Mullen. The conflict that would call for firing him is no longer there. So why fire him now? She was a big part of recruiting knows where a lot of bodies are buried.It will take a large amount of money to make her go away and I expect her husband who is a CC coach will require a few bucks not raise hell and tell. Before this is over UF will want a need a new coach and AD and State will also be in deep trouble.

He was using school money to go see his honey. That’s the terminable offense. Not just regular old sex. Taxpayer paid sex.

AND....he was texting her from the dugout during the 3-game sweep at USM

What a fool, he has destroyed his life over cheating. If a man cheats on his wife he will cheat on partners, at business and life in general.

3:53 You are very insightful.

Kingfish - you need better sources. His affair with the Lady now in Florida was reported on the night before Coach Can quit.

Sadly, links between Coach Mullen and her have also been suggested.

Evidently, Coach Can was busy texting with his sweetie on the side from the dugout as MSU was being manhandled by USM. Word is he was so into it, he decided to change pitchers when no one was even warming up in the MSU bullpen. When he went to the mound to yell at a MSU relief pitcher, one of the players saw the off color texts on his MSU paid for cell phone and reported him to AD Cohen's office. The phone had not been scrubbed clean when they checked and he got in a spat with Cohen that led to his leaving MSU, I guess for sexting on a State paid for cell phone. What a piece of work he was - once in a lifetime dream job, absolutely thrown away because he couldn't keep his zipper zipped up. So sad for his wife and kids. Still waiting to see if Dan Mullen keeps his recruiting expert Lady on the payroll or if she is so useful that her job is safe after everything that has happened.

He was bringing back the ‘85 MSU baseball jerseys, he misunderstood when they said bring back the Juicy Jumbo they were talking about the concession stand hotdogs

Listen To The Boom Of The Cannon.. said...

I can't believe the OM faithful and Rebel Rags Buzzards are not keeping with who this vixen is. She's been married a year to the guy who is now roundball coach at Scooba and left for Florida in the wake of Mullen's departure. I posted this link to her photo and write-up a week ago on here at least.

Check for yourself to see if she is acceptable. If Pasture Freezus had found her earlier, he could have saved his university a lot of travel money and would have been back at home, most nights. Nobody beats this chick......NOOooooo-Baddy.

Looks like Can got caught in a squeeze play and run down at the same time.

The Can Man signed on for a long ball but ended up with a short stop.

The SEC has made an adjustment in the record: Andy went 0-4 this past weekend.

Comment from Can-Man's current wife 17 years from today, "Honey, you were born 17 years ago this week, three days day after your daddy was fired for screwing around on me."

5:28 Thanks for the link. Hardly worth losing a job and marriage over.......

Forgiveness Awaits said...

If Cannizaro goes to counseling three times, waits a period of six months and then hits the church circuit, all will be forgiven, he can write a book and become a national sensation. Colleges across the globe will hire him for motivational speaking engagements.

In this link, Pastor Freeze shows us just how easy this redemption tour is:

9:56 Is attracted to (obsessed with) Freeze. Dude, you’ve just got to accept the fact that leg humpers are gonna just hump that leg sometimes, just like your new best friend Pastor Freeze.

Anonymous said...

8:21 - Whether you like it or not, the link provided at 9:56 is an excellent roadmap to the Cannizaro outcome. I'm a State fan and have poked fun at Andy several times and will continue to denigrate him for his behavior and what it says about my school. Can't you at least give up this childish, never-ending infatuation and love affair you have with Bucky? He was no more the savior of TSUN than Shepard Smith turned out to be.

The Freezus Obsession is descriptive of people like you who hold on to this image of a fake second coming who rode into Oxford on a white horse. It never was real. Let it go. Let it go. There is help available if you can't do it alone.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
