"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
OK - so I'm on the Rivals site looking at pictures of Big 10 media day....and wtf? Is it any wonder the Big 10 gets thrashed in the media every year??
Look at these coaches:
After Old Man Paterno, there's Jim 'can't win a national championship game without a very questionable pass interference call and a running back on the payroll' Tressel, Ron 'I got run out of the SEC' Zook, Pat 'I haven't coached very long but can tackle you really hard' Fitzgerald, Bret 'I kissed the future AD's ass a lot so I got the job' Bielema, Joe 'I love Drew Brees, but can't coach my way out of a paper bag, or a wizard hat for that matter' Tiller, Bill 'I wasn't even sure what I looked like before I saw this picture' Lynch, Mark Dantonio ('nough said), Tim 'woo hoo we won one game...but by God we're getting a stadium' Brewster, and Kirk 'I should be an offensive line coach in the NFL' Ferentz.
I mean, seriously! who are these jokers! I'm renaming our coach thusly:
Rich 'I'm drooling over kicking all these douche bags asses' Rodriguez.
At least the conference has basically upgraded the coaching across the board in basketball. Maybe we can win the Big Ten/Acc challenge once...ever...maybe...in the next couple years.
