"Jim's a tough guy and you can see his personality is all over this football team," Fitzgerald said.
I have been thinking about our transition to Manball and I wonder if you can just start doing Manball without becoming Manball. I imagine a few things in the transformation like:
- Hanlon walking around like Burgess Merdith in Rocky yelling in a raspy voice to the lineman that they need to "eat lightning and crap thunder"
- Running backs carrying FJ on their backs while running through drills, like Luke carrying Yoda on Dagobah, while he imparts thoughts like "be the offspring of Bo Jackson and Barry Sanders before the 4000 yard season you can"
- Lewan actually getting hurt from the cage match fight with Borges for not sufficiently drive blocking and not from training drills
I assume there is a book for how to live Manball, not sure if the board has any thoughts on what Manball requires or how to live Manball.

Terrell tribute for anyone interested...
"According to Sports Business Journal, that deal will pay the 10-member league $90 million annually. That's $30 million a year more than the first-tier deal with ESPN/ABC that runs through 2016."
This does seem like a windfall for the Big12. However Staples fails to mention the uneven revenue sharing in the conference which could still hurt the conference's long term viability.
You might want to do something about it.
