Got any stories ready about Thin Blue Line T-shirts or recruits whose parents may be in law enforcement? I'm sure if you wanted to you could write an article about that.
Great parallel. Gene thought coaches would come knocking on his door or fall into his lap like Urban. Turns out no one wants to take over a decimated program on late notice that is almost guaranteed a sub .500 team in year 1 of their tenure.
Looking back on the Fickell situation, Gene wouldn't call him "interim" head coach. Gene called him the head coach but he only had a one-year contract. Am I remembering this wrong?
Maybe Jent as head coach for a year is a fall back plan if a big-name hire doesn't come through.
Just give Urban Meyer a raise, have him recruit basketball players on the side and hire some PhysEd majors to fill out a starting lineup.
I'm going out on a limb for a roster spot for Dane Sanzenbacher. He doesn't have the star power but he was clutch and kept the chains moving.
Hopefully they stay just good enough to beat TTUN and steal a few local recruits from them each year.
Bro Hymn... skip to the 45 second mark
I don't know what's going on when I watch a Rugby game but it's pretty entertaining and looks like it would be fun to play.
I just think a Connecticut team like ESPN can't keep up with all that SEC speed down south.
We all know ESPN won't change. They will keep being overtly political and preachy. They will keep beating dead horses. They will stay in the hot take business. There will not be a reason to turn them on until your team is playing on their broadcast.
I used to like when they played obscure events like rugby, strongman, paintball, lumberjack games, darts, etc, in their non-prime hours.
College Basketball: If at first you don't succeed, transfer, again and again.
It would be difficult to pick between watching Larry Johnson and Kevin Wilson. Coach Johnson is one of the most gifted and passionate speakers I have ever seen. Coach Wilson brings in all the intrigue of a new OC with tons of success and experience.
Maybe Michigan had nice recliners in the locker room?
Obviously Duke should have raised their standards. Who knows how many National Titles they could have won in that 10 year stretch with the right head coach.
FWIW Woody went 6 seasons without winning the Big Ten and winning only 64% of his games, including a sub .500 year. He followed it up with a few Natties.
Hopefully Thad can turn the ship around.
