As I sat with my assistant watching the highlights of last night's Tennessee/ UCLA OT slugfest, he made a comment that sent shivers down my spine: "Is it cold in LA? Why is Rick Neuheisel wearing a sweater vest?"
Sweater Vest? Wait a minute.
Is this just a simple man-crush? Is this a desire to "be like Jim?" Or has Rick found the secret to OSU's power? Perhaps he has unraveled the mystery of making consecutive BCS Championship Games like a snagged cable-knit. Naysayers will point to Neuheisel's lack of neckware but I would postulate that the knot is what has kept the power from flowing in big games. If Jim would loosen up, perhaps his team would be able to win the Big One.
I'm going to ask Carson Kressly to look into it deeper...
