Hoge On College Football
Having co-coordinators in college football is not uncommon, but I’ve never heard of two coordinators splitting up the play-calling by down.
Penn State needed someone crazy enough to take this job — someone convinced they could save Penn State football when all logic said they couldn’t.
Sure, Terrelle Pryor and Jim Tressel caused the mess, but Smith’s careless decision to play in the Gator Bowl last year likely cost Ohio State a chance at the National Championship this season.
I’ll never criticize fans for demanding the very best. They put their hard-earned money into the program and it should go after the very best. But Illini fans also shouldn’t be surprised when the result is Tim Beckman.
Mike Thomas struck out multiple times in his pursuit of a football and basketball coach and so far, his football hire looks like a disaster.
This will come off as crazy talk to most, but don’t be surprised to see Notre Dame in the middle of the national championship conversation in November.
