Mount St. Mary's hired a private equity CEO to be their president. You'll never guess what happened next.
about to kickoff in Arlington between Oklahoma State and Missouri
Tajh Boyd vs Braxton Miller. Lots of offense expected.
Let's hope Clemson's offense shows up for their bowl game this year.
Line: OSU -2.5
2014 Orange Bowl final score
Big night for Clemson offense
Sammy Watkins. 16 receptions for 227 yards (an Orange Bowl and Clemson record) and two touchdowns. What a beast!
Tajh Boyd also set an Orange Bowl record with 486 total yards.
I heard this was the first time Ohio lost when they score 35+ points. (insert sad panda here)
Are you pulling for an OSU win to improve the B1G's tire fire conference reputation, or is it simply not in your DNA? For me, as much as I'm sick of hearing about how inferior the B1G is, I just can't... I just can't.
Looks like Scout has Lattimore on commit watch at tomorrow's Army Bowl!
I don't normally find these stories very interesting, however this guy is quirky, wierd and incredibly smart which makes this a good read. He has this strange compulsive nature combined with a sort of photographic memory that has combined to create the uber-coach.
The evolution into his current philosophy while as a high school coach is summed up really well in a single paragraph and punctuated by a line a bit further down regarding teenage thinking that also applies to college.
"He found the enduring cliché of "defense wins championships!" to be trite and frequently false. His team didn't have a lot of speed, but Floyd could throw a beautiful ball, and he had plenty of receivers who could catch. Shiloh's players would have to be in the best shape of their lives, so conditioning would be brutal, but if it worked, the advantages would be enormous: His team would control the tempo, no one could pick up their tendencies, the quarterback would be able to see the defensive alignment before every play, the players would have more fun (meaning more kids would come out for football), and opposing defenses would forever struggle to simulate in practice the week leading up to a game."
"The secret was to simplify things, to take teenage thinking out of the equation and let athleticism take over."
Can't argue with the guy considering he was a HS coach only 7 years ago and in the NC with a DB from Georgia as QB and a little luck. Will be a heck of a NC game.
Edit: Forgot to add this

NO ONE has been offered job. Report was wrong.— David Jones (@djoneshoop) January 3, 2014
That's PennLive journalist David Jones, who probably has a better idea than anyone else.
