    Does this mean he'll have to change his name to "Ghost of Beano Cook"?

    In all seriousness, RIP.

    Interesting article from the SI Vault dated 1982:

    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vault/article/magazine/MAG1125856/1/index.htm

    The highlights include:

    Vintage Beano.

    People were outraged that TV timeouts jumped 20% minutes all the way up to 26min per game, were thrilled they'd finally be able to see 60% of their teams games if they were even big enough to alway get at least regional coverage, and $131M for four-years of rights was an outrageous gamble caused by a network bidding war.

    And my personal favorite:

    30 years later, Ohio State is still renting mobile lights on cranes for late-afternoon games. :lol:

    When the hostages returned from Iran major league baseball gave them all a pass to enter any major league ballpark free for life. Beano said: "Haven't they suffered enough already?"

    Guess ol' Beano didn't consider the I-AA, II, and III divisions as college football.

    Can we get some parting words from Beano here?


    To the real Beano, RIP, and condolences to your family.

    He probably just meant to say "college football that people actually watch".

    I love CFB, and I will not miss Beano Cook.
