And on Thursday, the moment we've all been waiting for arrived: The real Dan Beebe tendered his forced resignation, and @DanBeebe went off. It was the most spectacular of finales.

Don't we know how that feels:

Predictions: Big East Week 4 - Big East Blog - ESPN
he Huskies have been dreadful on offense, and need to find some consistency at quarterback. Here is hoping coach Paul Pasqualoni comes to a decision and fast.

Naaman Roosevelt is ready to seize the opportunity " Sports " Niagara Gazette
"Naaman came in at the end of the year last year and did some good things," he said. "I don’t think there’s any reason that he can’t come in and help where needed and have an impact.
