We have so many projects goin on here at Chiefpigskin and we wanna continue giving you great content. As we move into our new year I need to prioritize my projects and this podcast has been temporarily squeezed out of my schedule. Thanks to you that have been loyal listeners, I hope to resume this podcast at a later date in the future. But for now, I’m putting it on hold. So this will be my last podcast until further notice.

But 1st I would like to close this addition with a few of my observations. You may know that I am an illinois football fan. Lived in Illinois for more than 60 years and will always root for the Illini. I saw they hired a new OC from App st and it looks like a good hire. The guy looks like he runs the football well so, we’ll see. Now…who will be the DC? Well…does it matter? No one can stop anyone anyway. Have you seen some of the scores of the games the last few years? And DC are getting fired like crazy…it buys the HC some time I guess. Maybe appeases the powers that be. Heck, even Alabama with all those 4 & 5 star athletes gave up 48 to Ole Miss and 46 to Florida. And thats the defensive guru Nick Sabans D. Now you may say – hey, hes not the DC. Oh yeah, gimme a break. You know Sabans fingerprints are all over that D. Nothin happens without his say so. By the way…I think a guy named Pete Golding is the DC. Ever hear of him? Me neither til I looked it up. And a real good Clemson team just got almost half a hundred hung on em by Ohio St. The point? Its hard to play really good defense and I hope the new Illinois HC can find someone to at least slow opponents down. I guess the philosophy has become “Lets Outscore Em” cause thats what you gotta do these days. And…THATS MY TAKE!

Quick look at Maxpreps tells me that IMG academy ranked #1 in the nation. They cant play in the state tourney…are they really #1 in the country?

I wanna leave you with my final book recomendation. Several years ago I read Gates Of Fire by Stephen Pressfield. Maybe my fav book of all time. Gates of Fire is a 1998 historical fiction novel by Steven Pressfield that recounts the Battle of Thermopylae…300 Spartans fighting an army of 10,000 persians. Tough…



Hey, join me next week for another CP coaches podcast and we’ll see you then!

Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does.  Sport can awaken hope where there was previously only despair.    Nelson Mandela
