I took some time to join The Johnny Ballgame Show, a sports talk radio show heard in La Grande, Oregon during the week from 3 p.m. – 6 p.m. Pacific time, on Tuesday to discuss the Pac-12 media rights agreement (Ballgame was pumped about the news), Penn State’s old uniforms and Joe Paterno as well as a couple of other topics related to college football.
Every time I’m on the show Ballgame seems to ask me some Big Ten questions since, as he puts it, I’m from Big Ten country. I’ll beg to differ slightly on that opinion (I feel more a part of Big East country than anything else) but I got a chance to speak on the latest Jim Tressel situation in Columbus and more. I still think Ohio State is going to be a team to beat in the Big Ten even if Ballgame is writing them off already.
Regardless, we both seem to agree that if Ohio State parts with Tressel they would definitely be looking for a big name head coach to fill the vacancy. Urban Meyer anybody?
To close out our conversation I got a chance to talk about some old faces in new places this upcoming season. The two guys I made sure to point out were Brady Hoke at Michigan and Al Golden at Miami. Long time readers and listeners will know all about my admiration for Golden, being a Philadelphia guy who got to witness Golden’s work at Temple. What coaches are you excited to see take over a new position in 2011? Let me know below in the comment field.
NOTE: At the time of this radio segment I was still operating under the College Football Examiner name and brand. Please do not be confused. It is still me.
