New, comments

If you are a highly experience football coach (American football) then Iceland may be the place for you.

In addition to an salary, which is negotiable, they are willing to provide the following items:

  • An apartment in Reykjavík
  • Free use of a car
  • Return flights
  • Food coupons
  • An amazing experience.

I mean, if I was single. Why not take a shot and try living in Iceland. That country looks beautiful. Hopefully, they pay you in the local currency (Krona) and not in American dollars because that exchange rate wasn’t too kind for Americans the last time I looked.

McMurphy: Brian Kelly was LSU’s backup plan
As much as LSU has trotted out Brian Kelly and made it seem like he was their dream hire for the past week it seems to be that Kelly was wasn’t the first choice.

Mark Whipple can tailor Nebraska's offense to its strengths, particularly at quarterback | Football | omaha.com
A lot will be expected of the 64-year-old Whipple in the span of 10 months. He has to assess NU’s quarterback room that has one career start under its belt while adding at least one, and perhaps more, quarterback to the room from the transfer portal, such as Akron’s Zach Gibson, LSU’s Myles Brennan or perhaps another name who hasn’t yet announced his intentions.
