I am sure this is a sign considering that Ohio State's first national championship was in 1942 (I think).
The end of that game was bizarre by both coaching staffs. I didn't understand South Carolina (the not real USC) going for it on 4th down in the 4th quarter when they merely needed a field goal to extend the lead to 7. I also didn't understand North Carolina going for it on 4th down in the 4th quarter, with enough time to get another possession, when a field goal would have brought them within one and allowed a field goal to win the game. Horrible IMHO!
I am hoping Illinois comes back and I think it should. There is some talent in that state so I think they can get a decent coach. Unfortunately, the top talent doesn't ever seem to commit there and that could be because of recent (lack of) success. Perhaps Illinois can hire somebody like Greg Schiano or Ed Orgeron (I know he did not do well at Ole Miss) and, if they do, I think they can become much better very quickly.
Word! Does that term show myself as aging?
My problem with Sark is this: If a player did the same thing as he did, would that player be suspended? I guarantee the answer is yes. It should be. Maybe one game, maybe two. How can he not be suspended for a game or two. I am not saying that he should be fired (although I would leave that to the discretion of USC and not think there is a right or wrong answer), but no suspension is typical of NCAA hypocrisy in my opinion. Double standards!
