I have to add- I was wrong about who gets to coach the Senior Bowl. I assumed (wrongly) the teams with the worst records got the honors. Not the case. This year it's the Texans and Broncos.

Well in the interest of Cleveland sports fans everywhere I put it up here AND on the TRIBE Board also, nothing we like more than the BROWNS next draft and the INDIANS opening day!

Hey the Indians also play some regular season games in Puerto Rico this year. ......how about that!

Yea....basically it says that Hue was just too completely disorganized to be able to competently handle the duties of the Senior Bowl. 

Though...I admit that "significant changes" should likely be forthcoming to the staff.  We do need more better competent coaches in here to attempt to make up for the deficiencies of the HC.  An OC.....a new ST coach, after this year miserable performance.   STs likely lost 3 games alone.  And who knows who else.

Wow, Hue declines to coach in the Senior Bowl... his ONLY chance to coach in any kind of bowl and he passes it up so he can "go on vacation"... what a hoe.

Walter's has him ranked #2.Love is the same 5'11 as Hunt,McCaffery,Kamara or Penny. My bummer is I watched Love play HS ball at Wake Forest HS in Raleigh,NC. As most Carolina HS backs such as Chris Johnson,Todd Gurley they fly at track speed.Bryce Love was a USA track & field youth athlete of the year in 09..As both C. Johnson(in prime) & Gurley..when they miss? your reading his back number getting smaller in chase. your not catching them..guess am watching more late night Stanford games:o

Why stop there? Regular season BB is so exciting, take it down to Santiago Chile, or Vladivostok Russia. the 50 people in Nome would surely watch a game when they aren't occupied whale fishing would gladly appreciate the attention...

Usually around mid April but they don't announce the actual date till it gets closer but typically before the draft.    I've already got my Cleveland trip weekends picked out regardless of the Browns schedule.

No Southern Cal trip this year.   Closest to you would be Oakland.

And that's not exactly "close".  But would be a good opportunity to see one of the last NFL games in Oakland so there's that.

I'll be in Cleveland in September this year.  Hopefully the schedule works out so there's a Browns game in the plans but I'm coming  back to make my first ever trip to Columbus and the horseshoe to see OSU play in person for the first time in my life.

I'm in on Tampa, New Orleans and one game in Cleveland TBD (Warm Weather)

I will challenge Ghoolie to fisticuffs at the New Orleans location, because his fat ass can just float down the river from Memphis to there.
