Tibesar's experience in CFL helped him tremendously

ESPN's Big Ten writer, Adam Rittenberg, got the opportunity to sit down and talk with newly hired Purdue defensive coordinator Tim Tibesar recently.

Tibesar said that the he was happy with his job calling the defense for the CFL's Montreal Alouettes but Purdue was an opportunity that fit every category that he was looking for, including "working with great people".

Tibesar also told Rittenberg that his experience in the CFL helped him grow tremendously as a coach because it forced him to solve problems that most coaches back in the states didn't have an answer for.

"You've got problems that don't come up in the states, with multiple players going in motion and 12 guys on the field. So I felt like it was a great growing opportunity for me from a schematic standpoint and learning the science of the game." he said of his experience up north.

Gannett vs. FootballScoop

Gannett, the nation's largest newspaper publisher, announced this morning that by year end they will switch over all of their 80 community newspaper websites to a paid model in which the user has to pay a monthly fee to gain access to be able to read articles and learn the news. 

Far and away Gannett's largest newspaper asset is USA Today (note that at this time they did not announce that USA Today would switch to the paid model).

FootballScoop, modestly smaller than Gannett, is announcing by this post that we plan to remain free to the people! 

In other news, Gannett also noted that they planned to return $1.3 billion to shareholders over the next three years. FootballScoop has no such plans.
