CBJ Board Other Sports Thread: Part V

Mangini has a plan and is a proven winner. I wish the Browns had the patience I did.

Odd. I can't seem to find a picture of Mangini holding the Stanley Cup.

Fair enough. I went to BG for 2 and a half years. I would agree with you that there are some good programs (not "a lot", as you say) and some great professors however I'd say both are in the minority. That is, there's more below average professors and below average programs than there are above average professors and programs. Nearly all the people at the university are very nice and good people, just not the best out there.

As a relatively small school in a tiny town 5 miles from BFE, such is life.

There are great professors at BG, to be sure. But there are great professors everywhere. My point was that if they didn't spend so many dollars on the sports programs, we'd have twice as many of them It is truly depressing to see how much of a drain it is on so many of the departments, which could be really great if the money earmarked for sports went to academics.

Don't get me wrong, I like sports (obviously ) I'm just not 100% convinced they should be mixed with universities in the way they are in the US. The business model that may work for OSU simply doesn't for 90% of the other universities around.

Unfortunately I think Mangini has bought himself another year with these last couple weeks.

Sounds like he ikntends to replace Mangini. I gotta say (and not in a fascetious, Steeler-fan way) that I think it would be a mistake.

He probably had a heart attack once he finally realized he threw away his chance at the Notre Dame job.

Seriously, I didn't see this coming. Supposedly he's out at UF because of his health. It'll be interesting to see why, I figure the real reason will come out sooner or later.

Well, Tiger Woods supposedly was just going for a 2am drive a couple weeks ago.

I'll be really shocked if something really big doesn't come out of this. Like terminal illness or massive scandal big.

No way he's done completely with coaching....

It can't be easy to stay at a job with expectations as high as Florida and be as fiery and passionate as Meyer is... If Tressel is as passionate, its rarely seen.....

Meyer will be back, probably after a year or two away. I think there might be another job he really wants and maybe the coach is on the hot seat and he's just waiting for the other shoe to drop so he can swoop in without having to worry about addressing if he's staying at Florida.

He's won all he can Florida really. 2 national titles in what, 4 years?

Whatever it is, it has to be pretty bad for him to give up coaching.

He'll probably take a year or two off and then rebuild another program. It's too boring when you win every year (not that any of us know what that's like).

He's not leaving UF, he's just taking a leave from coaching and will have a non-coaching position there. But I guess the real reason hasn't been released yet, other than it has something to do with his health.

Edit - Agreed, not that we would know what it's like to win every year.

At least Cincinnati won't be the only team in that game with an interim head coach. Let's get it on!

Correction: ESPN reports Strong did NOT sign an actual contract, just a "term sheet", whatever the hell that is. He's not out of the running.
