Good morning folks, I had some internet troubles and am starting this article late - so naturally, I imagine it will be late. So apologies for that. We had some light shed on us (probably from Jesus, admittedly) on the whole Glen Coffee retiring situation. I'll post that interview at the top of the links and.. oh.. I do believe that it's gameday, folks! Heck yes! Expect an initial thread from Fooch, new threads provided by myself, and Andrew Davidson will be getting your recap. Also, be sure to check out my preview (and recap) at SBN Bay Area. Beyond that - I've said it before, and I'll say it again - I fully expect each and every one of you to be here today. If the game isn't on in your area, I can't say anything about that but we can't control everything posted in the comments of the gamethread, so be on and be talking. If I don't have to make at least one gamethread (500+ comments) I'm going to destroy all of you. One by one. You will suffer the wrath of the impenetrable quickening. Anyway, enjoy.
Glen Coffee lost his passion for football while still in college. He seems like a mature guy and I respect his decision. I am still bothered by the whole situation, but it will be alright. I hope he does well in whatever he wants in life. (SacBee.com)
