Murphy's Law Generic

  • Yet another Marconi Award for our friends at WHO radio. Van Harden and the gang take home hardware for national medium market station of the year. Again. Congratulations. That’s a big deal in radio world.
  • Billy Gillispie is once again out of job. This time at Texas Tech. Gillispie is the latest example of a guy with a reputation for treating people poorly and then finding few friends when he needed some.
  • Great stat from Brent Blum: Paul Rhoads and Gene Chizik are each 9-7 since Cam Newton left. Chizik is the kind of guy who likely once thought Auburn went 14-0 mostly due to his coaching. He’s learning the truth now.
  • If you’re going to Kinnick Stadium Saturday, please consider wearing green for Greenwood.
  • Anyone excited about Iowa vs Central Michigan? Maybe Hawk fans should be. College football guru Phil Steele predicts Iowa will go 2-6 in the Big Ten, beating only Minnesota and Penn State.
  • The NHL has locked out its players. No one is talking about it.
  • I watched the NFL Network’s pre-game show announcers all pick Carolina to beat the Giants. The Giants won easily. In the NFL, no one knows what’s going to happen. Ask the Patriots.
  • Bruce Springsteen can make grown men act like fanboys. e.g. ESPN’s Bob Ley tweeted Springsteen’s song selection, song-by-song, for more than three hours Wednesday.
  • I can’t wait to see Clint Eastwood’s “Trouble with the Curve”. I’ll spare you a chair joke.
  • The Nationals are the in the playoffs for the first time since 1981. And back then, they were the Expos.
