How does the crow taste?

Posted by Jerry Brewer

Not bad, actually.

Naturally, there has been plenty of discussion about today's column, both in my e-mail inbox and on this blog.

The column is self-explanatory. It's an admission that I misjudged the situation with Tyrone Willingham last year when I advocated bringing him back for this dreadful season.

As I said in the column today, I don't regret it. I thought it was the fair and right thing to do at the time. But I was wrong. Wrong. Wrong. And considering what a big deal that piece became last December, it's only right that I don't try to pretend I didn't write those words. It's only right that I admit what the error.

I'll always hold myself accountable to you. You deserve it as readers.

Now, I know there's been plenty of debate of whether to keep Willingham for the entire season. So, my challenge to you is to explain why you're for or against Scott Woodward's inclination to keep Willingham the entire year.

If enough people comment, I'll put the pros and cons in a blog post later this week, so that we can put the lists up against each other and leave it to you to decide which argument is stronger.
