It will be really funny the first time they have a coach leave them for some other B1G team.
Those people were obsessed over crap like "NO NAMES ON THE JERSEYS" and "POWER RUNNING GAME" and they probably won't ever let a coach run his own system if it looks too different than what JoePa was doing in the 80's.
He retired in 1982 after 25 years as the HC at Alabama with the (then) record for wins in college football and 6 national championships. He basically walked on water and could do no wrong. He died shortly after that of a heart attack whereupon his soul ascended to heaven to coach God almighty's football team (composed entirely of deceased Alabama players). His office is right across the hall from God's and most likely closer (and a bit bigger) than the one Jesus uses.
