Some munchies from around the wonderful world of college football…
- Coaches know where their bread is buttered. The coaches of the Big Ten are opposed to adding a ninth conference game. Why, you may ask? Wins and losses, baby! “The statistic thrown around is that you probably would lose eight bowl opportunities over a nine- or 10-year period,” Ferentz said. “That’s significant.”
- If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen department. Meanwhile, their counterparts in the ACC are feeling some pressure, because that mean Jim Grobe won a conference title at doormat Wake Forest. Poor ol’ Tommy Bowden is facing a tough question these days. “If (Wake Forest) can do it, why can’t you do it?” Bowden said. The nerve of some fans!
- You don’t see that very much anymore. From that same article, an interesting note about Wake – 40 of the 44 players on the final two deep chart redshirted.
- “They have the arrogance of Notre Dame and the tradition of Wake Forest.” From the AJ-C comes this little factoid about the legend that is Florida football: since 1950, Steve Spurrier is the only head football coach who has left of his own accord.
- Quality ain’t cheap. Here’s what one fan had to say in response to the University of Virginia’s new policy of requiring increases in contribution in order to get the most desirable seating: “I have better things to do with my money than give UVA 2,500 dollars to make it to the Tire Bowl.” Give that man a blog!
