Jim McAllister is actually Ferris Bueller all grown up.
After people finally caught on to what a Manipulative Bastard Ferris really was, he changed his name and fled. After earning his teaching degree, he started his life anew, thinking he had gotten away scot-free. But karma caught up with Ferris, and he's finally having to pay for all the sins of his youth.
  • To go even further you could say his vendetta against Tracy boils down to the fact that she represents what he used to be as a teenager and that realization made him hate himself so much that he pretty much took on the Principle Rooney role in ensuring that Tracy is brought down a peg or two.
