“You let me worry about the uniforms.”
Has it ever occurred to anyone how similar the search for sponsors for lower-tier bowls (h/t Team Speed Kills) must be to Morris Buttermaker’s task in The Bad News Bears?
How are the uniforms coming along? What? The uniforms. Your team uniforms. Buttermaker, you better get on the ball. The best colors have been taken: Green and white, blue and white... red and white, maroon and white, white and maroon. Uniforms? Hey, Whitewood. What's this crap about uniforms? What do you mean crap? I've been meaning to ask... You're paying me to coach. You told me I'd be coaching kids just a couple of hours a day. I've got a lot of pools to clean. I can't be out looking for uniforms. Will you be quiet for a minute? You've been hired as a manager, right? One of the responsibilities of being a manager... is to get a sponsor and to get uniforms. - You didn't tell me that. - I'm telling you now. It's easy. You go to different businesses and talk to the guys. They all like baseball.

- As good a fit as Brian Kelly might seem to be as a head coach for Notre Dame, you have to wonder if having George O’Leary as a hiring baseline dooms that possibility.
- Meanwhile, Charlie Weis is blaming it all on the dorms.
- Speaking of ol’ Charlie, it doesn’t look like his departure is crippling recruiting much at all.
- And at Virginia, Mike London hasn’t even unpacked yet and he’s already landed a top 100 quarterback recruit from Florida.
- Junior clearly is a member of the as-long-as-they-spell-your-name-correctly school of publicity.
- Here’s an argument that undefeated teams as a whole are getting better recognition since the advent of the BCS than before.
