Default Professor Casserly’s Lessons Outline a Course for Living

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/04/13/sp...tner=TOPIXNEWS

Quote:
FAIRFAX, Va. — On a typical Monday evening, Charley Casserly spends three hours at George Mason University in Enterprise Hall, Room 176.

The students call him Professor Casserly.He spent more than 30 years in football, coaching and scouting and eventually running two N.F.L. teams, the Redskins and the Texans. But Casserly started as a teacher, and only now, after returning from the film room to the classroom, did he realize that part of him never really left. He still liked grading papers as much as he liked grading players.

“I’ve always thought of myself as a teacher,” Casserly, 59, said.




He stands at the front of the room, arms crossed, slacks pressed, shirt crisp. He runs a class discussion, breezes through a PowerPoint presentation.

The course is SM 475, a sport management professional-development seminar for undergraduates, taught by Casserly and Bob Baker, head of the department.

LOL. Thanks for the story.

You know...sometimes a pitcher leaves a breaking ball hanging out over the plate and WHAMMY!

I look forward to seeing how many funny posts we can reel off on this one.

I'll go first:

---------------

One of Casserly's students, a freshman, asked this question of his professor, "Professor Casserly, what are your thoughts on signing players who are too old or are expected to play out of position...and then what are the cap ramifications for an NFL team, particularly regarding 'dead money' and it's progressive effects on a team?"

The Professor paused, adjusted his precision-crafted LensCrafter glasses, and cleared his throat. "Well," said Professor Casserly, "That just about does it for today's lecture. Make sure you have that term paper ready for next week."

When they worked in Houston, Kisiel said, several Texans employees on the business side had never worked in football. Casserly broke the game down for them.
He also broke the team down.

Ladies, sleep your way to the top. It's what I did. You have to do what works. When you bend over, allow the brass to insert whatever they'd like to, in my case, it was a spatula as I'm demonstrating to you now.

Pointer #1: Ride any accent you may have as an excuse to speak fast and sound confusing, see, as I have done here.

Pointer #2: Act chummy, you know be one of the guys without being one of the guys.

Pointer #3: Give back to the community by overpaying mediocre talent at the tail end of their career. This is especially suscessful if they are injury prone.

Pointer #4: Take any job offered to you that is remotely football related and run it into the ground, and believe me they will probably offer you something like being an anlayst, just take the job, agree with everyone, and then use your accent and act chummy. You would be suprised how well it comes off, you will go on to land a teaching job as a result.

In a side note prof. CC was fired today for unsuccessfully trying to pick up new talent.

The blonde when questioned said CC was creepy.

I'm still pissed at NFLN for having this joker on their show. His voice is like scratching a chalkboard to me. I cringe everytime I hear the asshat.

Oh God. Worst part of all this...I work in Fairfax, VA. Wouldn't it be my luck to see him in traffic one day? Think it would be appropriate give him the middle finger and yell "Houston sends their best"?
To which he would say "Yes, I drafted Carr #1".
