Da' Bears headed to the White House
Coach Ditka and da'Bears Superbowl winning team from the 1985 season are going to the White House in about 2 weeks.
Their planned trip in 1986 was cancelled when the space shuttle Challenger exploded just days after the Superbowl.
President Obama, a huge Bears fan, has invited the team to come enjoy a few hours with him at the White House.
We're just letting everyone know, if anyone from Louisiana is ever elected President, we believe that person would invite Drew Brees, Sean Payton and a cast of characters to spend at least a few weeks partying at the White House. Might even let Payton make some surprise decisions for the country.

Remember those black uniforms
This is great. Remember the article we brought you on Monday about Ohio University breaking out new black uniforms?
Well, we heard the players got pretty stoked when they found out.
We now have the proof...on video...and it's great. Watch and enjoy the excitement these kids have.
"Winning can cure anything"

Want to be a defensive coordinator? Read this
Want insight into a defensive coordinator's mind? You should read this article about how Kevin Steele (Clemson's defensive coordinator) prepares for each game by Travis Sawchik of the Post and Courier.
Excellent article initially focusing on opponents' trends and probabilities; but then dives much deeper into game day decisions and analysis of opposing play callers.
"Steele typically trusts the numbers...[but] I never battle a gut feeling."
Steele also gives good insight into why he chooses to be on the sideline during games.
Really a good read. Full article available at this link.
