    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    Clearly not.

    or by good with numbers you mean "20 push-ups, 30 jacks, and. 15 burpees"

    Couldn't agree more with that. I LOVE it when we have the edge over EIU. Better AD, better fb coach, mbb coach, the list goes on and on. The best part is that the hawk know it deep down in their cold hearts, it just hurts to acknowledge it.

    I just write BVD and call him Mr. Underpants. Anyone remember BVD brand undies?

    The man couldn't raise money if it grew on trees it seemed like. Mr. Underpants viewed his role as a care taker, not an innovator like the men who came before and after him.

    Re: Van De Velde fired again.

    My buddies were not so happy after LE was fired, so they decided to make a phone call to his actual personal residence as a joke. He actually picked up a phone and spoke to my buddies for few minutes and explained why he had to let LE go. I don't know if he is naive, nice, or just plain stupid.

    Funny, no mention of how he stepped on his crank by not bothering to call back a bowl because "they could do better" so his 9-3 football team who were offered a bowl spot sat at home.
