Every office has their "pool guy." You know the one. He organizes the Super Bowl board, the March Madness pool, and the baby pool of any expecting staff member. We love the guy, because honestly anyone who helps bring gambling into the workplace is ok with us. Good news UCLA employees, you have your man. Experienced NCAA gambler Rick Neuheisel was hired as head football man today.
I've always thought the guy was a little smug. But if you can't build a powerhouse at UCLA, then you shouldn't be coaching. The same could be said for USC during their down years, but there is no reason ANYONE should not be able to build a powerhouse in sunny California. Come to think of it, why did it take Hawaii so long to pull off an undefeated season? What 18yo kid wouldn't be interested in 12 months of tan co-eds, 80 degree days, and plenty of time at the beach?
Good luck Rick, and count me in come March.
