Well, here goes my first attempt in a while at a football update. I know we are a basketball school, but we must spend some time talking about our improving football team, as I hope they really make some noise this fall.
First, we have the estimable John Clay discussing the top NFL prospects for the 2008 draft, and lo and behold Andre Woodson rates #4 on his list. I don't know if that is cognitive dissonance coming into play, or if he genuinely believes Woodson aught to be ranked that high. But Woodson is talented and athletic, and I think he belongs in there somewhere. Others with a better grasp on football may want to comment on this.
Finally, USA Today has a recent article linking to a Sporting News ranking of BCS football coaches in which Rich Brooks name shows up at 40. That's not all that interesting, except for the fact that several notable names show up below Brooks, such as Charlie Weis of Notre Dame and Karl Dorrell of UCLA. I guess that explains why our brothers over at Bruins Nation are less than totally satisfied with their coach. Here's a sample:
Heh. For some reason, this sounds kind of familiar to me. How about you?
