The FootballScoop Jinx?
Published: Friday, 25 November 2011 23:01
Don't think we've ever heard of this one before; but yes, an astute viewer did write in to question the timing of our article this morning that talked about how Kyle Whittingham had his guys playing well after a tough start (they had won 4 straight games heading into today's match-up at home vs. Colorado.
As the viewer noted, "There is no other logical explanation for Utah losing at home to Colorado other than the FootballScoop jinx."
The viewer, a division 1 assistant coach that will remain unnamed, did request that we not write about his staff tomorrow morning.
While we don't believe in the jinx, we will refrain from writing any "this coach is really on a roll" articles tomorrow morning.
Quick side note, with Utah's loss, UCLA becomes the Champion of the Pac-12 South and will play in the inaugural Pac-12 championship game.

FootballScoop Staff spent the day on LSU's campus. The environment for a night game is far better; but today was pretty special.
What Les and his staff have done this season is really remarkable. The talent they lost from last season...the issues / suspensions (starting QB) that arose weeks before the season began...Krags' health issues forcing a changing of responsibilities with Stud stepping up and taking over the play-calling...the Oregon game to start the season...then they had to sit some of their best players mid-season...another quarterback change late in the season...going into Tuscaloosa and coming out victorious...and then stomping out the challenge from a good Arkansas team today...oh and did we mention that a large number of his play-makers on both sides of the ball are young?
This past off-season Les hired two coaches (Steve Kragthorpe and Thomas McGaughey). A+ on both counts.
If anyone votes for anybody other that Les Miles for Coach of the Year, they need to have their head checked.
Long live the Hat!

Kevin Sumlin and his Houston Cougars polished off Tulsa 48-16 today to finish the regular season 12-0.
You go 12-0 and this website is going to congratulate you. Well done Coach.
Houston is going to try to keep him; but it's not going to be easy. Everyone wants to speak with Sumlin.
