Monday a lot of that discussion centered around what the Titans should do with head coach Mike Munchak.
"I think he needs to go, all the way from the top and completely rebuild the whole franchise," said fan Jonathan Griffin. "It was just one of those seasons I hope to forget."

Federal judge dismisses charter school suit

Afterward, the school and parents filed a class action lawsuit against the board of education arguing that the board violated their due process and equal protection rights.
On Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Kevin Sharp dismissed the lawsuit, rejecting the parents' claim that they would be forced to send their children to inferior schools and denying that the charter's rights were violated.
