At what point does NC State turn to the Krystal Coach? Rick Barnes at Texas turned down the Pack’s 2 Mil per year! As did John Brady @ LSU. John Beilein a WVU said nyet. Steve Lavin, yes Steve freakin’ Lavin said no thanks. How far into the second tier is NC State brass? Phil Ford. Yes, Phil I’m a reject from the Carolina family Ford has now emerged as a leading candidate. They can’t give 2 million dollars a year away there. Something is screwy there. One has to wonder if a certain magnate and a certain AD are somehow involved in the process in a shadow type of capacity. Anybody say Kevin Stallings?

Great article on Dane Bradshaw from Chrissy Boy Low in todays Tennessean. Bradshaw’s mentality is that of a champion. Low writes that ironically Bradshaw was in Indy having surgery concurrently with the Final Four. He was around Florida fans while they were whooping it up on the way to a national title. Bradshaw says when people come up to him and say isn’t it great that we beat the National Champs twice? Bradshaw replies, ‘No, not really.’ He believes UT’s season could’ve been even more special were it not for his injury that completely altered the way UT attacked. I must say in retrospect that I concur.

The Dallas Morning News Today has an NCAA Study on steroids and sports that should trouble all who read it. According to the study, student athletes say steroid use in NCAA sports is an inside job.

Of steroid users, 17.8 percent said they got their steroids from a coach, athletic trainer or team physician.

4.1 percent said they were "certain" their coaches knew they were using the banned drugs.

You have to wonder how clean sports are in all aspects. You have to wonder, but do you have to care?

78 Year Old Keith Jackson was called it quits after for good this time. Jackson, who did slip in the past couple of years, is a real icon in the business. With a tremendous voice and presence, Jackson will be sorely missed. I know folks will bring up the Sugar Bowl comments and the National Title Game comments as it relates to Tennessee, but still even they have to admit that when Jackson did your game back in day, it was validation that you’re team was in ‘the’ game. Jackson did it all in his career. He was even the first play by play guy of Monday Night Football! The guy was the lead announcer on the USFL package back in the 80’s. It doesn’t get any better then that!!!!

Since he and ‘Team Tyler’ have decided to forgo his career at UT for anonymity, congrats to Tyler Smith for signing with Iowa. You run UT through the mud and attend a year of prep school to end up at IO-Freaking-WA? What’s up with that?

What would the off-season in football be without machinations over the lack of a playoff in college football. It seems the plus one model is supported by 9 of 10 college presidents surveyed by the AJC. Conclusion: Talk is cheap. Especially in the off-season on the heels of a brand new TV deal with Fox.

Since talk is cheap. How ‘bout getting down to Hardee’s tomorrow at 7200 block of K-P to celebrate/mourn by huge announcement.

Peace Out
