There’s not much in news this week as we have college basketball and March Madness to fight with. I’m also fighting a nasty food poisoning bit. That said, some news eeked by and we scooped them up. It’s short and sweet but will give you something to stare at besides all of the red ink on your bracket. Here’s this week’s news:
- Charlie Weis is going old school and calling plays from the sideline for Notre Dame this season. Well if you’re gonna go out, you might as well do it swinging from the sidelines.
- To no one’s surprise, Kansas State is looking to get out of a tougher schedules in Miami for the next couple of years. Looks like Bill Snyder 2.0 is alot like the 1.0 version.
- Rivalries are grand, aren’t they? Lawrence city commissioner Sue Heck proposed changing Missouri street’s name to ex KU football coach Don Fambrough. Some of the other commissioners thought it was pretty lame and Heck eventually withdrew the proposal. Still, I enjoy lobbing small digs to rivals to keep the flames going.
- Kansas coach Mark Mangino will be inducted into the Italian-American Sports Hall of Fame. All I have to say is that’s-ah one-ah fat-ah spicy ah meatball!
- The Senate is reviewing whether or not non BCS conference schools are at a competitive disadvantage when qualifying for a BCS bowl game. Hey guess what? Orin Hatch is leading the cause and he’s from Utah! They still won’t get over it. Jinkies.
