– The Savannah Morning News is covering Tracy Ham’s induction into the college football hall of fame. Ham was the record-setting Georgia Southern quarterback who led the Eagles to two national championships in 1985 and 1986. The offensive coordinator for those teams was, of course, Paul Johnson, and there’s a story in the article that’ll give PJ fans a chuckle.
– Notre Dame is going to play a “home” game in Orlando in 2011 and 2014, which I assume will be after the renovation of the tinker toy dump that is the Citrus Bowl. Their opponents for those two games have not been announced yet, but since Navy played Notre Dame in Orlando once before it’s only natural to wonder if it’ll happen again (that game was a Navy home game, though, and not Notre Dame’s). You can scratch the 2014 game, since Notre Dame is at Navy that year. That leaves 2011, but I wouldn’t hold my breath. They’ll probably take a team with more local appeal like USF. That would also take care of one of their Big East obligation games. I don’t think that the Domers were looking to put any of their schedule “regulars” in these neutral site games anyway. Just some speculation on my part.
