Whoa, Nellie! Keith Jackson dies at 89


He was the first voice of Monday Night Football, an excellent baseball play-by-play man, but Keith Jackson will forever be remembered as the voice of Autumn Saturday afternoons and ABC College Football. He has died aged 89.

Sex and the Convenient Excuse


Greg Schiano.

Greg Schiano’s coaching résumé is a mixed bag. He had a fair amount of success at Rutgers back when that school was still in the Big East. In his last seven years, he led the Scarlet Knights to a 56-33 record and six bowl games where they went 5-1. That got him interviews at Michigan, the University of Miami, and an offer in the National Football League. It was there that his reputation took a hit for six.

In his first year with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the team was a semi-respectable 7-9 but tumbled to 4-12 in his second year and ranked in the bottom of nearly every offensive category. He, and the General Manager who hired him, were shown the door. Unable to find college or pro work he ended up at Berkeley Preparatory School until Urban Meyer hired him as the Defensive Coordinator at the Ohio State University.
