Mount St. Mary's hired a private equity CEO to be their president. You'll never guess what happened next.
Gardner was offered by LSU today, and is now up to 13 total offers. More are definitely on the way.
So says here....
We can scratch that one off the board.
Saw this article today:
What a horrible (bizzare?) story. Such a shame, considering the bright future he had in front of him. Hopefully more info will shed some light on this. Prayers go out to his family.
schadenfreude should be pretty great this week what with all the humiliating losses today. aside from the obvious (us), there's still michigan state, minnesota, texas tech, lsu, notre dame who were all given humiliating defeats (lsu probably the least of the group).
watching msu and texas tech be crushed made me feel a little better about our game. we were destroyed, but texas tech got it harder, while ranked #2 in the game of the week. seems like a good choice for 'tears of unfathomable sadness'
Tell me what you think? I was about to enjoy a nice whipped cream topped Irish Cream & Espresso while lighting up a Gran Habano #1 Broadleaf corona, it doesn't get too much better than that for starting a Sunday. Just before settling into what channel might tell me where Detroit might be playing or at least what spare limb depository I'd need to show up to actually get highlights as I was promptly reminded that you actaully have to win games to be seen.
Alas... I trolled through the assorted psuedo-sportsesque programming to happen upon listening to ESPN chatting it up about Les Miles and LSU's narrow victory, but victory nonetheless over Auburn ending an eight year run on the their home-field advantage. Some unknown putz [whom I've never seen on ESPN before] makes a crack at Michigan for letting Les Miles skip over the Maize and Blue for the Tigers of LSU.
That was a cheap shot... because I was one of the loudest cheering for him coming on board. We needed a Southern Style Kracka Ass Kracka type Bubba Gump option playing coach. That and recruiting was behind him too... another reason why I hate the BCS so much, it is nothing more than Big Collegiate Socialism, you have know-nothing schools transferring the wealth of solid built program successes by the schools who did it right, all in favor of siphoning talent, money, and glory away from the more dynamic schools, all so that Bubba Tech should get an equal but underserved shot at a bowl, not so... or should I further ask, does that sound politically familiar?
Bubba Tech has to do it the old fashioned way, build a program of their own. Well, we have some decent talent, but we have absolutely no frigging depth at all. It'll be two years before we see solid gains from the transition. I don't doubt Rodriguez's abilities, I just don't trust him enough to make it happen so...
I quess this is where faith is supposed to come in...
