    The way Vince Dooley treated that bastard dog Otto is just shameless.

    IronBuckI Calmer than you are.

    I love the internet. Old threads can sometimes be hilarious. Don't want to call anyone out, but this whole hindsight 20/20 thing is freaking awesome. :tongue2:

    ESPN: Chat with Beano Cook - SportsNation

    Hey, an ESPN chat and everyone is preoccupied with 'over rated' Ohio State. Go figure! :roll2:

    Beano was on Cowherd the other day, talking about how Penn State and Notre Dame would win "9 or 10 games" this season. It must be July, again. :lol:

    He further added that PSU would definitely finish second in the Big Ten behind Ohio State this year. Of course, he gave us no shot at USC. :ohwell:

    DaytonBuck I've always liked them

    I'm too young to know the answer but was there some point Beano was considered some sage of CFB? He gets the respect as if he's the Walter Kronkite of CFB.

    He never said we have no shot. Just above in the chat he says we have a legitimate shot to run the table. All he said was he thought USC would win because they're at home.

    Yeah. He was a publicist for Pitt, ABC, and CBS decades ago. He's been at ESPN since the mid-80s -- helped launch GameDay before it became the road show it is today. He's one of the few college football historians around that can claim to have seen many of the legends play going all the way back to the 40s and 50s.

    He's prone to both ridiculous hyperbole when it comes to players/teams he suspects will do well, and not mincing words when it comes to players/teams he suspects will have a down season. Senility hasn't helped.

    It's not Powlus's fault he didn't play defense.

    I am very sorry to tell you that Beano Cook died in his sleep. He was 81. If you love college football, you will miss him.
