Joe Paterno: 2008 Coach of The Year Finalist

Coach Joe Paterno has been designated as a finalist for the Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year award, which honors both on and off-the-field excellence in coaching. What, you thought the players were the only ones going to get credit for this fantastic season?

JoePa is one of 10 Division 1-A coaches out of a total 25 nominated for the honor, which will be announced  on ESPN during the Music City Bowl on Dec. 31st. The best part is that you can help him win!

College football fans are invited to visit www.CoachoftheYear.com from Dec. 12-22 to cast their vote for the Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year Award winner. A selection committee composed of College Football Hall of Fame players and coaches and the national media also will cast votes for the winners. Fan voting accounts for 20 percent of each coach’s final score while the College Football Hall of Famers and national college football media account for 55 percent and 25 percent, respectively.

You may scoff at your vote only counting 20%, but there’s some stiff competition:

Mack Brown (Texas), Pat Fitzgerald (Northwestern), Brady Hoke (Ball State), Urban Meyer (Florida), Chris Petersen (Boise State), Nick Saban (Alabama), Bob Stoops (Oklahoma), Jim Tressel (Ohio State) and Kyle Whittingham (Utah).

So get out the vote for JoePa – unless you want people to think that Tressel is more than just a sweater vest model.

Gorman Abruptly Resigns

Head coach of the men’s soccer program Barry Gorman unexpectedly announced his resignation Monday. He leaves a legacy of 22 years of coaching and three Big Ten titles in his wake. Citing “personal reasons,” he has left the team to a nation-wide search for his successor.

“We expected Gorman to be there,” [rising Senior and Co-Captain Andres] Casais said of next season. “He was a father figure to us.”



Oof, that can’t feel good. The move isn’t completely out of the blue, as Gorman was periodically absent during the past few weeks without notice. But from all accounts, his intention to resign was only revealed yesterday. On the abandonment scale, this registers just slightly above “going to the store for some cigarettes and never coming back.”
