Meanwhile in Calumet City...


At the Calumet City Bingo Hall

Ron_turner_icon_medium ...then I barged into his office and I said "You find a way to give Kurt Kittner a sixth year of eligibility or things are going to be bad." He fired me! And things were still bad!

Dead silence

Ron_turner_icon_medium I know, ridiculous.

Ron_turner_icon_medium Are there any other questions... no? Alright, thank you for your time.

John_cooper_icon_medium Thank you, Ron and thank you former Indiana coaches Cam Cameron, Gerry DiNardo and Bill Lynch. Once again, I'd like to thank you, the reporters, for coming out to the Ex-Big Ten Coaches Media Day. Both of you. It is very appreciated. I, of course, am John Cooper, dean of fired Big Ten coaches, and I can tell you that fall is not only an exciting time for those Big Ten schools, but also for us. Lots of golf to play... heh heh heh. Anyway, next up at the podium is former Minnesota head coach Tim Brewster.

Brewster sprints to the microphone

Brewsterpowericon_medium Summer went well! Attacked that weight room! Watched the Dark Knight Rises! Trying to be ripped like Bane!!! That's my new motto!!! Shoutout to my boy Eric Decker for working with Peyton Manning!! Opening the floor to questions!!!!!!!

Brewster waits silently

Brewsterpowericon_medium ...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Iconpresser_flipped_medium Yes, I've asked the same questions to Coach Cameron, Coach DiNardo, Coach Lynch and Coach Turner, and I'll ask it to you too - can you tell me how to get to the McCormick Place Convention Center for the actual kickoff luncheon, the flyer I received said Big Ten Coaches Media Day in big bold letters and the Ex part is only in 6-type font.

Brewsterpowericon_medium I don't understand the question!!!!!

Iconpresser_flipped_medium *sigh*

Reportericon_medium How has the first season away from Minnesota gone?

Brewsterpowericon_medium It was hard! But adversity creates character!!! My man Gandhi said that! I am really, really, lonely!!!!!!!! Work! Fight!! Try!!!

Glen_mason_icon_medium Boooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! You stink! I once had Laurence Maroney and Marion Barber III in the same backfield. That team was a monster. Music City Bowl champs; never forget. Meanwhile, what did you do? Sully my program and get rewarded with a new stadium. It's not fair.

John_cooper_icon_medium Gentlemen, gentlemen. Calm yourselves. You are part of an important brotherhood. Not everyone can be fired by a Big 10 program and we, I repeat: we, have done it. Now are there any more questions for Tim?


John_cooper_icon_medium Thank you. Now please welcome to the podium the Big Ten coach with the highest winning percentage in Big Ten history - Bill Callahan.

Bill_callahan_icon_medium I don't really have an opening statement. I really need to get back to coaching the Cowboys, so I'll open the floor for questions.

Iconpresser_flipped_medium Yes, do you know how to get to Mc-

Bill_callahan_icon_mediumI do not.

Reportericon_medium So this is the first I heard of your record, care to explain?

Bill_callahan_icon_medium I beat Michigan in the Alamo Bowl. 1-0 career record in the Big Ten.

Reportericon_medium So you played just one Big Ten team during your tenure?

Bill_callahan_icon_medium Yep and we won.

Reportericon_medium That sounds pretty fishy.

Bill_callahan_icon_medium Don't look at me, both ESPN and the Big Ten Network recognized it. In fact, I do have a Big Ten Icons special slated for October. Make sure to catch it.

Reportericon_medium So what can you tell me about your time in the Big Ten?

Bill_callahan_icon_medium Well, Michigan was really big and pretty talented across the board. Also, San Antonio has the best funnel cake.

Reportericon_medium ...


Reportericon_medium ...


John_cooper_icon_medium Well, Coach Callahan really has to get back down to Dallas, so I think we'll cut his questions short. Finally, we will wrap up with a man who knows how to have fun... Ron Zook.


Man comes up and taps Cooper on the shoulder, handing him a laptop

John_cooper_icon_medium Well, it seems that Ron couldn't make it, but he still wants to grace us with his appearance .


Zookicon_medium Whazzzup ass-clowns! Zooker in the house! Summer is going well, getting my tan on, getting my mack on. See those shoes on the ground? They ain't mine! Wink, wink.

John_cooper_icon_medium Any questions for Coach Zook?

Iconpresser_flipped_medium Do you know how to get to McCormick Place Convention Center?

Zookicon_medium What kind of question is that? You know the answer jabroni: practice. Hahahahahahahahahahaha!

Reportericon_medium So how's life without football?

Zookicon_medium Oh believe me, I'm still out recruiting.

Reportericon_medium Really?

Zookicon_medium Yeah (counting on fingers) Lisa, Monique, Carol, Raquel, Susita, Megan, Bonnie, Katie, Charlize, Daisy, Jennif- oops I running out of fingers here. Jolene, Olga, Dixie.

Reportericon_medium I don't get it.

Zookicon_medium I bet you got a lot of Ds.

Reportericon_medium Huh?

Zookicon_medium Deez nuttzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Zook grabs himself.

Cooper grabs the laptop and turns it away.

John_cooper_icon_medium Well, that got vulgar quick. Ron Zook everyone.

Cooper hands the laptop to an assistant.

Zookicon_medium Zooker rollllllllllllllllllling!

John_cooper_icon_medium Once again. I'd like to thank you for coming out. I think it's been another successful day. We have some complimentary Minnesota shirts that Coach Mason stole on his way out for you as you go. One final time - thank y-

Kevin_wilson_medium Ummmmmmmm. I never got my say.

John_cooper_icon_medium But you're just a reporter.

Kevin_wilson_medium I'm not just a reporter! I'm Kevin Wilson damnit. I'm the head coach at Indiana and I'm supposed to be at the actual Big Ten kickoff. Now does somebody know the way?!

Glen_mason_icon_medium Kevin Wilson?

Kevin_wilson_medium Yes!

Brewsterpowericon_medium The coach at Indiana?!!!!

Kevin_wilson_medium Yessssssss.

Bill_callahan_icon_medium The same Indiana that went 1-11 last year?

Kevin_wilson_medium Umm. Yeah.

John_cooper_icon_medium I don't know how to tell you this son, but you're probably at the right place.



Kevin_wilson_mediumI know.
