Looking Ahead, Looking Back

Its the first day of the new year. Time for a little fact and opinion for 2008...

Fact: Paul Johnson guided Navy to uncharted waters in terms of success. Five CIC's, bowl games, and a win over Notre Dame.

Opinion: He will win his division in the ACC within two seasons....

Fact: West Virginia has lost two major coaches to Michigan in the past two years.

Opinion: If Rich Rodriquez, who I like, can't beat PITT at home with a BCS Berth on the line, how does he expect to beat Governor Tressell and OSU/

Fact: Steve Kragthorpe is still employed at Louisville.

Opinion: His defense was terrible, and the addition of former Duke Coach and Ga. Tech Defensive Coordinator Ted Roof will help save my man at Louisville.

Fact: Hawaii heads into the Sugar Bowl unbeaten.

Opinion: Georgia will win by 12 points or more.

Fact: LSU plays Ohio State for the National Title....

Opinion: Id rather see USC and Oklahoma at full strength...

Fact: Washington State is ranked #4 in the country in Mens hoops....

Opinion: How many people know Tony Bennett is the coach? He has done a remarkable job and still can't get out of the shadow of GONZAGA.....

Fact: New Jersey Institute of Technology is a D-I hoops program.

Opinion: I did a NJIT game when they were D-III....Schools like them, Longwood, and South Carolina Upstate will never be in an NCAA Tournament before 2020...Florida Gulf Coast, yet another D-I import, is actually playing a reputable level of hoops....Did you know Presbyterian was D-I too?

Fact: Brian Billick was fired as Head Coach of the Baltimore Ravens.

Opinion: It was time. As much as I actually like Billick, his message was no longer resonating with his players. Brian look into Atlanta....can't be any worse than Bobby Petrino and Billick will be classy enough to hang around for a whole season. Ask yourself this, does Ozzie Newsome deserve some of the blame here as well? Lots of old, injury prone players have been aquired over the past couple of seasons....

Fact: The Mitchell report is in...

Opinion: I dont care...

Fact: The Washington Redskins have qualified for the NFC Playoffs..

Opinion: This is amazing. At times they have looked like a circus act on the field. Now, focus appears to be top-notch. How do you explain Todd Collins? Its nuts to think Collins can carry the Redskins to playoff glory...isnt it?

Fact: Navy was picked sixth in the mens pre-season basketball poll in the Patriot League.

Opinion: They will finish fourth or better. League looks very balanced though Holy Cross has been a surprise in the early season and so has Lafayette...

Fact: My wife is 15 weeks pregnant.

Opinion: I am now a professional janitor......
