...I did not know this before I Googled it.
Finally, preferred walk-ons are in a better place to earn a scholarship but in football it normally does not happen until a player’s junior year. That’s because giving a walk-on a scholarship after his freshman year still uses one of the 25 initial scholarships for that year. A player has to be on the team for two full years before they can get a scholarship and not have it count like an incoming student.

The short answer is; not many do.
The medium answer is; Entry Level Position-Must have 1000 years experience, College degree required, must be able to flip a light switch on etc. which kind of negates the first argument.
Unfortunately, the fact is unless you network and/or have a hook up your chances of finding a *decent* job straight out of college are slim to none. Best to bite the bullet, take a *shit* position, try to move internally from there and/or use as springboard to land original position with desired company.

Full control is key? Name me 3 coaches in the past 20 years where that has worked out for them and I will even spot you one in BB. As soon as you promote a HC to GM you may as well fire him as it rarely works out the way you intend.
Running a team in the NFL is hard. Kelly (like countless others) got way in over his head dealing with personnel issues and has killed any change of the Eagles competing for the next 2-3 years.

...except that Helfrich is essentially an extension of Kelly in that the system hasn't changed. At least we can point to Brady Hoke and say "That guy thought it was a good idea to recuit one QB every 2 years".

Can a call go M's way? Please? Just fucking once. Running into the kicker? Maybe. Personal foul? You've got to be kidding me.

IIRC he has been the interim HC during Kill's previous LOA so saying he doesn't have any "real" HC seems a bit harsh. Dude's pretty much been running the team for the past year/year and a half.

Not really. Up the gut against MSU is one of the hardest things to do in football. Alabama, LSU, hell even USC in their hey day would have trouble against that.

They changed their name this year to Goodwood Brewing or something like that.

That's because O'Leary's boss is O'Leary. Not like he is going to fire himself.

Nope, they 100% believe that Cal is clean as a whistle. Hell half of them don't harbor any ill will against Pitinio because he brought them a NC.

Not dismissing this thought by any means but offenses run what 60-80 plays a game? That's like 15-20 1 thru 3 or 4's they have to count. In the heat of the moment that is pretty easy to get mixed up in my book.

I'm too old to care about the "brand" I'm wearing (but I did in HS) and the lead image should massage any worries over the whole "It's a bball brand" thing. Jumpman logo=good things.

I think this qualifies for an exception considering it's a seminal moment in sporting history.

No, because it's the fucking internet where you have services like Twitter where short-hand/lack of punctuation is celebrated. Face it, the majority of the internet is not looking to be published in the Harvard Law Review.

Wow. When did Jehu/Chesson become senior's? Guess the whole lost year that was last season has warped my personal time/space continuum.

Probably not, people are forgetting that the Jumpman brand has been used in football before.
