This is a collision of my two top hobby-horses. I favor RR like mgo jen and Section 1, but I am also the man "who wants to watch the world burn", in that I believe for football to belong in an academic environment it has to do some dramatic things to make the game safer for the players. I have always stayed in my foxhole for the RR threads, and I would have preferred if almost any other coach was the subject of this controversy. If the details spelled out in the Inside Higher Ed piece are accurate I feel terrible that such a big W for Rich was marred by such an unfortunate turn of events.
I did not make this headline up
