Ok, so I just made up the name of the compeition. But it may well become a feature here at HLS if we keep finding little nuggets like the items below. And with Ron Zook, Ty Willingham, Chuck Amato, Llloyd Carr, and Chan “Who’s Calvin Johnson?” Gailley still coaching at the collegiate level this year, we should have quite a competition on our hands.
So here are our first 2 nominees…
Apparently Ralph Friedgen and the University of Maryland offered WVU “OMFG HE SO FAST! HERCULES! WOOSH!” Running Back Steve Slaton and Slaton accepted with enthusiasm. But then Maryland yanked the offer and let a local news station break the news to Steve. It’s one thing to go and pull a scholie on an eventually great football player, but another thing to do it and “forget” to tell him about it. It’s no big deal really, just 23 TDs in 9 starts.
Up Next, we’ve got Ron “I’m the Head Coach As Long As My Name’s On The Door” Zook doing for punting what Rockne did for passing, inversed.
