Born on the banks (not literally) of the Mississippi River in Onalaska, WI (LaCrosse) in 1964. Raised on the banks of the Olentangy since 1968. Can almost hear Keith Jackson saying that last part in a way that only he can.

  • SPORTS MOMENT: Watching Buster Douglas knock out Mike Tyson on a giant rear projection tv in my parents house. Oh, and a little thing called the 2002 National Championship. That was stressful as hell, but worth the suffering.

Let's face it, this is an award for coaches who either inherit a mess and make the program competitive or overachieve with mediocre talent. Urban pulled this off in 2012, taking a team that went 6-7 to an undefeated season. Coach of the Year, right? Nope. The mess Bill O'Brien inherited at Penn State clearly weighed heavier than the record. Penn State was 9-4 in Paterno's final season, and his successor goes 8-4 in the following year and wins the Coach of the Year award - even after a home loss to the unbeaten Buckeyes. 

If TTUN lives up to the hype, I feel that Harbaugh is a shoo-in for the award this year. It may be quite some time before a Buckeye Head Coach wins the COY award and yes, that is a good thing.

Hey Curt!  I was looking for something from you after Kyle's gold to give those of us who don't follow wrestling so closely, a little perspective on such an incredible year. What past wrestler can you best compare to the run Kyle has had at his age?

A few observations about that old game footage. Telling the teams apart in B&W footage is nearly impossible. Apparently wool jerseys came in two shades. Dark and darker. Finally, refs in those days didn't trot around like the older dudes today. They hauled ass!  They were certainly younger and more fit that the refs we have today. Funny to watch them just dive into the pile, rather than sit back and watch. Looks very much like club league rugby now - just with a lot more fans.
