landing spot. will be interesting to see how he does.
I guess I'll put the relevant ones for us down here: Michigan +/- 10 (the same as Alabama), Ohio State +/- 9.5, Michigan State +/- 7.5, Notre Dame +/- 9.5, Nebraska +/- 8.5, Iowa +/- 8.5.
(I included Nebraska and Iowa because they're the teams with the best odds to win the Big Ten West)
Yes there's already a post on the firing of the head coach at Baylor below, but I think this merits a separate topic as a sudden counter point of clarity to Penn State.
For the thousands of us who still seethe at Penn State's administration, coaches and vocal fanbase for mishandling, and subsequently defending the mishandling of the Sandusky atrocities, we can now just point to Baylor.
Years, if not decades ago, Penn State did not do as Baylor has done. Penn State did not decisively remind their community, fans and revered head coach that sports, winning and idolatry are nothing compared to preserving and protecting the rights, dignity and welfare of the young and vulnerable.
The facts may not all be in. Points of "apples to oranges" distinction abound and are aplenty. Perhaps Baylor's administrators had a few dirty secrets of their own, but for today at least, kudos to Baylor's administrators for doing a small part toward restoring our faith and perspective in what really matters in the world.
Oh, and eff Penn State.
Yeah, it's Bleacher Report. But still, fun summer reading fluff during our endless wait until fall.
USA Today put together a list of the top coaches in the NFL.
Normally, I don't give much thought to these type of faux ranking lists, but I found it interesting to see where the Lions' Jim Caldwell ranked.
He is not much higher than several first-year head coaches, sitting at 25th.
Curious as to your take on the job Jim has done, and where you feel he should be ranked out of 32 NFL head coaches.
Also, this GIF is magical:
Good on Baylor, I guess, but wow this is huge. Players tweeting about it. 11am (CST) press conference is about to start.
EDIT: Starr no longer President, will stay on with Law School. AD placed on super double probation. Other, unnamed, firings have also occurred.
