Mike, Your article just demonstrates that the "fraternity" among football coaches, play by play men and player/color analysts also extends to fawning reporters. If you judge Beamer's "accomplishments" in the context of the competition he has played, I believe a more sober evaluation would be warranted. And I guarantee you that USC with "California cool" Carroll and Texas with "tent revival" slick Brown and Florida, LSU,Alabama, Oklahoma and Ohio State, with whatever characterizations you may wish to offer of their head coaches, are very content with "upper level" BCS Games and the occasional shot at--and winning--of a National Championship.

NEVER thought so much play could be generated from winning the pitiful ACC and then beating Cincinnati. In Valley Girl jargon--"Wow!! Just Wow".

V Tech and Cinnci couldn't play their way out of a wet paper bag. The Orange Bowl used to mean something. Allowing any ACC shipwreck to play has devalued the Orange Bowl to dirt.
