UPDATE -N: One more item. If you are on facebook you can join the Fire KD group by going here. Every little bit helps. So facebook Fire KD. GO BRUINS. -N

cross-posted from

We hear you ... we are reading your emails.  We are getting active here at DD and we know you want to get active too.  Here is where we at DD think all Bruin fans should start (if you have any other ideas let us know):

  2. Get The Word Out. Contact any or all of the important people you see at the bottom of this email and let them know, politely, that Dorrell has got to go. The contact list below includes Dan Guerrero, administrators and importantly media contacts, including Pac-10 media.   Help build momentum!! Tell them Dorrell has embarrassed the program and has not come close to achieving any of the goals Guerrero and he himself set out for him when he was hired (win Pac-10, compete in BCS bowl, beat SuC - 1 win 3 losses) 5 years ago.  If you need help in what to say just read the past few day's posts or contact us. 
  4. Get on the radio call-in shows. Yeah, its just call-in radio but we talk to these guys off the air and they have an impact, trust us.  When they start saying "fans want Dorrell gone" it becomes fact in the eyes of Morgan Center.  We hopefully will be on 1 or 2 of these shows sometime this week. We will keep you posted so that you can call in at that time to bring a show of force.  We will also be on the Bruin Show this Wednesday evening at 6 pm. You can listen in and call in live.
  6. Dump Dorrell t-shirts.  If you are lucky to have bought one of these last year, WEAR IT!! We have gotten emails, and have read postings, asking about last year's "Save Football" t-shirts  ... we were told by the manufacturer that we were sold out.  We most likely do not have any right now . We just got an email from the manufacturer saying that there may be some left.  No promises. We won't know unfortunately until Sept. 24th when the contact is back from his honeymoon in Indonesia ... nice timing.  However, we have new ones planned for the big campaign that we have been working on since the beginning of the Summer. They are different and they depend on Dorrell losing 1 conference game.  They are designed to get attention .. in a humorous way.  We will let you know when they come out.
  8. Petition.  We have also received emails asking about a new petition.  We don't think now is the time for that (more on that in bullet #5). One loss in conference play and it will be the right time.  We will have a new petition written then and will need your help in getting the word out to have it signed. 
  10. Important BIG Dump Dorrell campaign.  As we have been talking about we have a big Dump Dorrell campaign planned this year that has many parts to it, including shirts, other comic memorabilia, a petition, and other cool things to get media attention, all based on 1 central theme. We think its hilarious - but more importantly, it is designed to get widespread attention. Our single goal here is to secure a new head football coach. So this year we have to do this absolutely right.  It's not the right time in our opinion to roll out this campaign. We think the right time is after the 1st conference loss. It will all make sense when this loss does come and we ask for your help in launching the campaign. For now you have to trust us.  The important thing to do now is to build up the talk of a coaching change, build the momentum. Build it up big so that when we do launch our campaign it will take off right away.  The goal is to have the greatest impact on Dan Guerrero's decision making.  1 out-of-conference loss, albeit historic, just doesn't get us there ... yet.

In the meantime, we are sending emails to all the media contacts we have to get the word out. We are active here at DD. We will be ready to launch our campaign nationwide when the 1st conference loss happens.  Help us set it up by getting the word out!! Here is who you can contact:
