    Factoid of the Week (from Peter King)

    In 1976, Cornell football coach George Seifert, in the midst of a disastrous 3-15 two-year run at the Ivy League school, prowled the sidelines during a 28-12 loss to Brown in upstate New York. He was fired after the season.

    In the Cornell radio booth that day, as he was for every game of the Big Red's debacle of a season, was student broadcaster Keith Olbermann.

    In the visitors' radio booth that day was Brown student broadcaster Chris Berman.

    The next season in which Seifert was a head coach (1989), he won a Super Bowl with the 49ers, while Berman and Olbermann critiqued him for ESPN.

    FYI...Olbermann will be the co-host of Sunday Night football on NBC. Not an announcer, but a co-host of their Football Night in America.

    Should be fun, I like Keith.

    If they really want to get ratings...get Bill O'Reily as the other co-host.

    Another funny thing about that is that Olberman actually doesn't like football... How a Sportscaster can't like football is beyond me but for him to get a football job is pretty funny...
