Goal of the year

Ronaldinho might not be having the best year in Spain this season, but this goal might be one of the best of all time.

Thank You Larry

While this year has been a complete disaster, Larry Coker does deserve credit as being one of the good guys in college football. Coker reign as leader of the Hurricanes came to end Friday, but his legacy will live on for years to come at the school. Most people will say that Coker won the 2002 Rose Bowl with Butch Davis players, while that may be the case, the NFL is littered with players that played for team and were groomed by Coker, who served as offensive coordinator under Davis. Andre Johnson, Sean Taylor, Jeremy Shockley, DJ Williams, and that are just the start. For those who said he was a bad coach, I give you last year’s game at Virginia Tech. At the time Tech was ranked in the top five and had dreams of playing for his national championship, but that all ended by 10:3o that night, when Coker's Canes went in there and kicked them all over Blacksburg.

Watching Coker this year has been painful at times. He is a good man that brought class to the program and he should be remembered for that. Who ever it is that replaces Coker will have a lot to live up to.

Please Stay off the field

Ok I get it; you beat a top ten team. But that top ten team was Rutgers. Despite being on the board the bandwagon, they are still one of the worst programs in the college football over the last decade. That does not give you the right to rush the field if you are Cincy.
And Bearcat fans were not the worst perpetrators in there own state, earlier in the day, in the Game of the Year, fans of #1The Ohio State University rushed the field after topping #2 Michigan. Please this is The Ohio State University, winner of national championships, winner of Big Ten titles, and has had a number of Heisman Trophy winners play for them.
Over the last couple of years, there is an epidemic sweeping the nation, students and fans seem to rushing the fields and courts for no reason. Football is not only sport that has this problem over the last couple of years. A couple of years ago, North Carolina fans rushed the floor after being Duke. This all has to stop.
Here are a couple of rules that fans should follow before rushing out on the field/court:

  • If you are a top program, like a North Carolina in Basketball or an Ohio State in football, you have no right to rush the field. As a fan of a top program you forfeit the right to rush the field.

  • If you are a lower program you can only rush if you beat a team that is ranked in the top 10. So if you are a major conference school and beat a 21st ranked team no court rushing for you.

  • Use common sense.
