It was the morning Chris Scelfo was officially named the head football coach at Tulane University.

Green Wave offensive coordinator Rich Rodriguez was in his office, one floor and about 50 feet from where the press conference was taking place. Rodriguez was crying right in front of a reporter.

My opinion of Rodriguez was always high. That day, it was even higher. Rodriguez badly wanted to coach his players. And, when he knew he wasn’t going to get that chance, he didn’t stick to a canned script. With Rich, what you see is what you get.

On the afternoon that Tulane beat BYU to finish off a perfect season, Rodriguez did an on field interview with Harry McCulla for ABC 26. When he and McCulla finished, Rodriguez was carried off the field by several players.

Watch out for Nick Sheridan!

Sheridan There are some good sources at U of M who say that returning QB Nick Sheridan could actually be the starting QB when Michigan starts the 2009 season in Ann Arbor.

I got one for Michigan Football

I have this little troll that I know who has one Michigan football season ticket to sell.

The seat is pretty good and is right next to my buddy who is a total Michigan football queer.  He might even hold your hand if Michigan is losing to Ohio State in the second half.  Seriously, I like the guy but can't afford to buy the ticket. The safest place to get tickets to the upcoming matches is footballticketnet.com out of the UK.

The season ticket is $450 for the season and my buddy would likely let you hold it for a few years, until his newborn is old enough to kick your ass to the curb.

If you want the seat, let me know and I will hook you up.
