George O'Leary, UCF president again deny he will step down following Penn State game

Central Florida's opener against Penn State is indeed scheduled to be played in Dublin, Ireland, three days from today. Which means, according to a report from Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman earlier this month, we could be three days or so from UCF head coach George O'Leary's retirement.

Feldman stated that O'Leary, 68, was "strongly considering" retiring during the season, possibly as soon as the aftermath of the Penn State game, and hand the reigns to assistant head coach for offense/offensive line coach/recruiting coordinator Brent Key. 

Not so, says O'Leary. He denied the report at the time, and did so again Wednesday before boarding the Knights' plane to Dublin.

"You know me better than that," O'Leary told the Orlando Sentinel. "As good or bad as it gets, I’m going to finish what I started."

Central Florida president John Hitt reiterated that O'Leary would coach through the season.

"Coach O'Leary would never quit after one game in a season," Hitt told the paper. "Whoever wrote that doesn't know George O'Leary. George will retire when he retires. We hope his health stays great. He’s often said when he has two straight days when he goes to work and doesn’t have fun then he’ll retire. We think and hope it will be a good, long while before that happens."

Entering his 11th season at UCF, O'Leary is 72-56 at the school, coming off a 12-1 campaign in which he led UCF to an American Athletic Conference championship, a Fiesta Bowl victory, and won the inaugural AAC Coach of the Year award in December. 

Video: Latest #FalconFast commercial features college kids peeing their pants?

While playing the role of Billy Madison, Adam Sandler famously stated that "Peeing your pants is the coolest. You ain't cool unless you pee your pants."

Well the latest #FalconFast commercial apparently agrees, because it features two college kids sitting around watching the game and...well you'll just have to watch it to really appreciate it.

If peeing your pants is cool, consider these BG fanatics Miles Davis.

Photo: Check out the t-shirts that the Ole Miss defensive linemen are wearing

I'm a sucker for good t-shirt ideas, so after seeing this tweet from Ole Miss defensive end Robert Nkemdiche showing off their defensive line (or "RushMen"), shirt I knew immediately that it was something that other coaches would appreciate as well.

Here's what the shirt says:


Then, in small font below that with an asterisk the shirt reads "*None of these above take talent".

Ole Miss opens up with Boise State tomorrow night at 8pm EST in the Georgia Dome.


Video: Utah State gave their locker room a face lift and surprised players after practice

It seems like nearly every program in the country did some renovating (or at the very least, updating) of their facilities this off season, and Utah State is the latest program.

After practice yesterday, when players opened the doors to the locker room they got quite the surprise as their home away from home received quite the face lift.

The Aggies did a great job with the graphics, and you've got to love having the core values and keys to winning posted in the locker room to reinforce those messages day after day.
