As you may have already seen, Donnie Webb has posted an update on Big East Media Day, filled with many of the usual nuggets. These include Greg Robinson saying the time for talk is over (it should have been over with 3 years ago jackass) as well as an update on the health of the running backs and a the status of suspended starters Mike Williams and Brandon Gilbeaux (status - not good).
However, my personal favorite bit of information is this:
"Offensive guard Ryan Durand downed seven lobsters at the Big East clam bake Monday night. That broke some type of team record held previously by James Wyche. Durand said Rutgers fullback Brian Leonard reportedly ate nine, a record he said could have broken easily but claims the lobster supply ran out before he could get to more."
In all seriousness, we here at T3I love gastronomic feats of strength . The Nathan's hot dog eating contest is must see TV for us, and we'd all be lying if we told you we never watch IFOCE events when they are on the tube.
However, when your new offensive coordinator issues an edict to lose weight, you've had an off-season of bad news, your unit is the weakest link on a bad team and you are the unanimous choice to end up in the cellar of the conference, you might want to not mention to a reporter the fact that you ate 7 lobsters -- but hey, that's just me.
As it stands now, 7 wins would be wildly optimistic for this team, so I ask our readers, if Durand were only allowed to eat one lobster for every win SU will have this year, how many should he have eaten?
