I was looking for tickets today at lunch.   I have no problem with it.

Spot on with Bill Snyder.  I mentioned him earlier.  Winning season after winning season.  He is amazing!

Tark is much like Woody Hayes.  I say Tark...few mention Fresno State.  I say Woody...few mention the punch.  The players loved both. 

Tark always welcomed second chance kids.  In the end, Chris Herron's story has a great ending.

Another footnote:  NCAA hated him and were out to get him.  NCAA tired everything but he continued to win.  Image if they left him alone.  NCAA would settle multiple times and the NCAA paid Jerry $2.5M.  I believe it is the first time NCAA has settled for wrong doing with a coach.  Tressel should have sue NCAA for the 5 year show clause.  I digress...

Is it the program or the coach?   A program example would be OSU Football.  Ohio State will win with or without Urban.  A coach would be Bill Snyder at Kansas State.  Bill is having another winning season and KS will never win without him.

Jerry Tarkanian is my GOAT.

Jerry did wonders at UNLV.  It was THE show in Vegas!  I know many don't realize how great of a coach he was; I loved him as a coach.  My favorite team is still 1987 Rebels...loved the 1990 team, too.  RIP Shark!

Footnote:  He was born in Ohio.  Ohio against the World!
