he's too good a coach to be out of the game long. he'll end up at a bowling green or some place like that.

Interesting articles over on espn about who should comprise the selection committees. The infighting has already begun among fans.

Ex coaches?
ADs?
Press?

Pretty big arguments for and against all three.

"E-mails reveal Penn State complicity in Sandusky cover-up"...it'll be a long time before it's even out of the news, much less a distant memory.

The second biggest sport in the US is suing someone else. Let the games begin.

Yep, looks like this is about to take a turn for the worse instead of a healing. Ugly.....to Uglier.

watching espn now regarding the freeh report. I said many, many times that Joe Paterno would never knowingly hurt a child. It looks like I was wrong. I couldn't wrap my brain around the great Paterno ever doing something like this.

Anyway, I owe an apology to Linzi. Sorry Linzi. You were right, I was wrong.

Nice post and apology...it takes a big man...

What amazes me is what these big institutions do to protect themselves, the Catholic Church, Penn State, Boy Scouts...the list goes on and on, protect the institution at all costs.

Now I just hope the Paterno family just STFU and lives with the fact that their patriarch was a flawed human being.

NS I remember you being shocked years ago that I didn't venerate JoePa. --And I was talking football, not this shit then.

Guys/Gals, let's keep the Sandusky/JoePa stuff in CSM please. There are threads there.

In this case I hope PSU gets sued till the walls come down. They deserve to lose every penny in the bank.

edit: see #124 UMass was added, that's 1.

found it... read the article before responding Jurgen.

Jurgen's notes from the bottom. I have hopes for Davie. No not great hopes, UNM isn't going to get so good that Jurgen can whine about them not having a playoff spot. But hopes that he can get them into the top half of the denuded Mountain West Conference.

There have been comments from Davie about having to teach the Lobos to work hard. Along the lines of, "They thought they were working hard before, but they weren't..."


My man at Tulane reports similarly. Much more focused practices in spring and up tempo in the weight room.

I hope both can improve and get some wins. I'd love to see both win four this year. Small beer, but a big step forward.

UNM has Texas and Texas Tech early in the schedule.

Tulane opens against Rutgers. Tough way to start for both.
