alternate headline: man does job
Given what we've seen from OSU, and also with today's news about The "U", college football fans are faced with a major question; Should the death penalty ever be used in college football? Given the complete devastation that it caused for SMU, will it ever be used again?
I got to thinkin about this for a little while during my run this afternoon: Who will be named the captains?
Coach Hoke said that the players will vote--whether that gives more or less variability to who we think would be the captains, who knows? But, to me, I doubt that there will be any surprises, here.
Lock: Mike Martin
No surprise: Denard (unless Hoke wants only seniors), Molk, Woolfolk,
Slight surprise: Kovacs, Koger, RVB
I can't see anyone outside of those 7 get the C. I'll predict Martin, Denard and Molk. It will be nice to have more than 1 captain who actually starts, unlike last year.
*I know that last year they had 2, but I generally remember M having 3. I'm curious as to which has been more of the norm?
Quoting Jay Bilas (I know), on Twitter -
"Looking forward to public statement from Paul Dee, former Miami AD and chair of COI. Sat in judgment of USC, and this right under his nose."
Can't help but feel the dam has been fully breached at this point. College athletics as we know it today, will look very different 10 years from now (hopefully, in a good way)
Fact: I have 2 tickets for the Nebraska/M game November 19th.
Fact: I have been informed recently that my niece is getting married in Chicago at 11 am November 19th.
I need very creative excuses/ideas from my comrades. I need help big time! I REALLY want to be in the Big House when Nebraska arrives.
All you can eat grilled barbeque ribs/corn on the cob/salad/blueberry pie and beer at the Western/M game to the winner...
You might recall that last year about this time, I wrote a song for the season, lyrics to Don McLean's American Pie. I felt the creative urge this year and Ive hit the legal pad again. Last year we were coming off a horrible, messy offseason, and something uplifting with a deeper message felt right. This year, Hoke has been recruiting so well and we're getting so much press, I'm feeling the rockstar vibe.
