THE ROCKY TOP FLOP

rockyflop2

Most recently the Athletic Dept at Tennessee has been stepping on rakes. It’s 1st through about 12th choice for Head Football coach hasn’t been interested in the job. Hiring, then firing Doug Schiano in the same day didn’t help either. Now the AD is out.

“Head Ball” coaches are just not interested in coaching at Tennessee – which is really odd considering the rabid fanbase and the Football budget outspends Alabama.

The visual? The University of Tennessee has a rock. A rock, at Rocky Top. This rock is located on campus, and on this rock Vols spray-paint all sorts of stuff. Some creative, some not so witty. The rock is shaped weirdly like a face planted  dude with his ass in the air.

HERM EDWARDS WANTS TO COACH A FOOTBALL TEAM

HERM EDWARDS seems to know how to pundit. He’s been doing it for a long time at ESPN, and he should stick to what’s he’s good at – not try to return to a profession he gave up a decade ago. Herm Edwards is [apparently] interested in the open head coaching job at Arizona State, and apparently Arizona State is oddly interested in a failed, retired 10 years ex-NFL coach.

Edwards has not coached, at all,  in 10 years. He hasn’t coached college football players in almost 30. Easy math – if he was hired as “Head Ball Coach” at Arizona State, there isn’t one player he’d coach-up who was alive the last time he tried that at the college level.

ASU might as well dig up Vince Lombardi and interview his corpse.

Stroking Neuheisel

Rick Neuheisel put his cleats in his mouth recently by suggesting that UCLA should consider leaving the Pac-12 and join the Big 12. He suggested that that would fry the guys at USC. Dumb statement that was widely mocked. I joined in. Trojans jumped all over it on USC blogs. They love me right now. Wait until I post a negative cartoon then it will be back to hating me.

The funny thing – UCLA is supposed to be really good this year, so Rick’s timing sucked. Maybe it will motivate the Bruins to beat the cross-town rivals.

THE JOHNNY TRAIN

JOHNNY MANZIEL is a living train-wreck. It’s a shame but his path is set. Manziel will never return to Professional Football. He’ll burn through his guaranteed money and in 5 years he’ll end up the subject a postmortem story in Sports Illustrated: “The Tragic End of Johnny Football”. Dude’s a wreck. Drugs, Alcohol and Gravity will do the rest.

JOE PATERNO – Enabler

JoePaLegacy

THE JOE PATERNO Bronze was uprooted and removed at Penn State because it appeared that Paterno ignored evidence that Sandusky was abusing children. We’ve learned recently that Paterno was, apparently, told that Sandusky was abusing children. He heard it, and willfully ignored the abuse. If true, Penn State should remove all mention of that man’s legacy.

For the [many] KoolAide drinkers who still think the sun rose when JoePa got out of bed, I have a suggestion (see above).

MORE ON SATELLITE CAMPS

NCAA and Nick Saban have hard-ons for Jim Harbaugh. Although Saban has said what an awful thing Satellite Camps are, he can’t and hasn’t explained why they “hurt” athletes. Saban doesn’t like them because he doesn’t do them, and he wants Harbaugh to get out of his backyard. The bottom line – Saban wants control and he’s pissed that he doesn’t have it with Harbaugh’s Camps.

Saban is acting like a Small Time Country Sheriff who wants to run the Moonshine Business. He thinks it’s a bad thing in public, but as long as he’s doing it… its cool.
