    Saw this last night. Always thought he was kind of an odd hire for that program, for some reason. I guess I remember all his old quirks as coach of the Oilers and Falcons, such as leaving tickets at the box office for Elvis. His tenure at Portland State seemed mostly unremarkable, though.

    Portland State is in kind of a strange position. They are trying to build it up as a third football school in a relatively small state (Oregon), supposedly made more attractive by the fact that it is the largest school in the Portland metro area. In terms of news coverage, most of the Portland TV stations devote the bulk of their time to Oregon and Oregon State, with Portland State being almost an afterthought. There isn't a big recruiting base in Oregon to draw from, so the Oregon schools have to rely heavily on out-of-state talent (mostly Cali) in order to succeed. Not sure how successful Glanville was at playing the recruiting game, especially with all the inherent challenges of being located in Oregon involved.

    The real news here is, Jerry Glanville was actually coaching somewhere?

    Slugga,

    As an HP alum (and of course UT) living in Portland I can comment. The hire raised awareness and $ but did not translate to the field. Thje candidate being touted buy a local sports writer is the coach at Willamette.

    i.e

    Canzano: Willamette's Speckman would be a perfect fit at Portland State

    Runs wide open offense and is a feel good story as a person.

    I don't follow Portland State very closely. How was their O, and how was their D?

    In other news today, Johnny Cash was laid to rest.
    ...Or was it Roy Orbison??

    That hat and that tooth gap = terrible combo.

    Bill O’Brein took the heat off the little clowns infamous “stagger lee” call with the fake punt on his own 30 against KC last week.

    Neither. Orbison died in 1988. Cash died in 2003.

    Any old country icon willing to put out a bunch of Nine Inch Nails covers late in life/career is a pretty bad dude.
    I'm waiting on ol George to release his Nirvana covers any day now.
    Here's Johnny....
