"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
RR sat Denard because he was more concerned for Denard than for the win
(somebody get us some ricola please)
There's kinda already at least two threads about this. And there are more on the "special teams coach" question.
But, yeah, RR did well here. Family values are intact.
We could always bring Bill Stewart in to coach special teams next year. There's a chance he may be looking for a job next year, and this is the position WV promoted him from when they made him HC. lolz.
...I agree. Despite the witchhunt, he has always handled himself well.
As far as Denard's health, RR has to know Denard's health (and thus effectiveness) is tied pretty closely to RR's empoyment status in AA (at least in the short-term while we are waiting for a Defense to show up). Best to keep him as healthy as possible.
I hope people keep talking about this. Parents of recruits love this stuff. I hope people give Saturday's win to Tate, it's not easy to walk in cold into a shootout where every score matters and not miss a beat. Well, he missed a beat there on that first play. but thats about it.
Brian Kelly says he can't see the point.
Rich Rod is going to be here. Get on the love train.
Quite the turnaround from a week ago.
Nothing new here.
Wow....for a selfish, win-at-all-costs, hillbilly who puts the safety and well being of the players at risk each week by engaging in wanton disregard of the stretching rules you're not such a bad guy after all.
Drew thinks wanton is something filled with cream cheese that you get at chinese restaurants
... To many coachs have that win at all costs mentality. I took a nasty hit during practice in high school and the coach said he didn't see it, and I should get back in. I never wore glasses before that, now I can't see without them.
