College Football Round-Up, Part I: Where To Begin?

So much to discuss.

  • Notre Dame's overrated and Brian Kelly is a creep
  • BCS Championship: Where's Oregon?
  • Northern Illinois vs SEC vs Kirk Herbstreit
  • The Big Bad Wolf (Urban Meyer) vs. the Three Little Pigs (Bielema, Hoke and Pellini)
  • NIU, KSU and the fools who sponsor the MAC Coaches Lottery
Those will all have to wait.

I am going to begin with a short tirade over the alma mater of one of our own beloved in this space, Appalachian State. Simply this, what they hell are you thinking and is this any way to treat a man who did so much for your school/football program?

For those who don't know, this week Appalachian State fired Jerry Moore, the head football coach who defeated Michigan in the Big House, won several national championships, and made the playoffs nearly annually. His crime? The team only one 8 games for the second year in a row despite winning the the 7th league title in 8 years. His real crime? Being too good for too long and not being able to sustain it, and that's shameless.

But alas (I like that word today), we cannot leave on such a sour note, and speaking of being shameless here's the first segment of Louie CK's Shameless. Other than the shameless segue, this has nothing to do with college football.  Louis CK is a comic genius and you should be advised that this is definitely NSFW, but I am sure you already knew that.

yeah it's a drag and you're right. Jerry was guilty of one thing, getting old (73) the articles i found said jerry and the AD supposedly agreed at the end of last season, that he would retire at the end of this season. which don't make sense. jerry asked for one more year, which makes sense because he had one more year on his contract. i think the AD and alumni got greedy according to the Charlotte Observer: "Cobb (A.D.) also said a new coach might also help in Appalachian State’s hoped-for move up to the Football Bowl Subdivision, an effort that has been unsuccessful so far." Plus three first round losses in row kinda hurt.

I feel shame.

correction. you may be right. finding posts that say he was planning on retiring this year, but then asked for another year. if so, he still should have got his last year

Dragoon >fivebigdays • 9 days ago −+ Flag as inappropriate LOL...I know Dale well. I used to be his neighbor and even helped build his house. We've all known he was going to retire after this season. He MAY have asked for 1 more year, not sure about that, I'd like to talk to the source that said that. Maybe he did have a change of heart...I don't know. But I'm telling you man, we all knew it was coming. Coach Moore is 72 years old and has had some health issues. Scott Satterfield was brought back for a reason. I'll always love and respect coach Moore for who he is and what he has accomplished. I don't know what transpired Saturday or Sunday, but we all knew he was done. Don't talk to me about facts when I'm FROM Boone and I personally have a unique inside view. Facts: view.http://www2.wataugademocrat.com/Sport...
