    ESPN.com-Forde Yard Dash

    Quote from ESPN.com's Pat Forde:

    "Iowa State (9) parted ways with Dan McCarney, rating a 4 on the surprise meter after his 12 years on the job. The Cyclones replaced him Monday with The Dash's top choice for a career assistant prepared to be a star head coach, Texas defensive coordinator Gene Chizik. If Chizik doesn't succeed, The Dash will buy a round for every Cyclone fan five years from now in Ames. Provided The Dash ever gets to Ames."

    I hope I don't need to, but just in case, my order is a Miller Lite. Thanks!

    Funny, I included the link below...

    Song Of The Year

    The Memphis radio guy's "Coach O Song" (33), a tribute to the highbrow oratory of Ole Miss coach Ed Orgeron. If you haven't heard it, find it. Anyone familiar with Orgeron's lingual skillz will die laughing.

    His lack of clearly defined metrics make this bet pretty much worthless. So much for a free Blue Label on Mr. Forde.

    Not that it will matter of course, this is a great hire.

    Bad Rule Change Of The Year

    The speed-up-the-game (34) efforts of the NCAA were laudable in theory (we do not need four-hour football games) but not so laudable in practice. The impact on offensive numbers and late-game strategy was too significant to stand. An NCAA source said we can expect at least a moderate revamping of that rule in the offseason.

    I was very glad to see this.

    Ha, I love the Coach O song. And seeing him in a [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HX7wzhMvbzo"]commercial for a Hummer dealership[/ame] made it even better.

    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."
