He named his successor last year, right?

He's the winningest coach in franchise history if I'm not too much mistaken, and he'll always be loved in Indianapolis for bringing us our first pro sports championship since the ABA Champion Pacers. He'll be missed, but at the same time it's probably time for a change.

Fare thee well, Bat Boy!





Skinner: Well, I was wrong. The lizards are a godsend.
Lisa: But isn't that a bit short-sighted? What happens when we're overrun by lizards?
Skinner: No problem. We simply release wave after wave of Chinese needle snakes. They'll wipe out the lizards.
Lisa: But aren't the snakes even worse?
Skinner: Yes, but we're prepared for that. We've lined up a fabulous type of gorilla that thrives on snake meat.
Lisa: But then we're stuck with gorillas!
Skinner: No, that's the beautiful part. When wintertime rolls around, the gorillas simply freeze to death!

Will naming a successor get Indy in trouble with the Rooney Rule? (I hope so.)

As long as there is language in Caldwell's contract guaranteeing him the head coaching job upon Dungy's retirement, the Rooney Rule doesn't apply.

Pretty sure there's no need for the Rooney Rule ...

If the difference between 2nd and 3rd place in the computer polls stays about the same, then the lower ranked team in the human polls would go above the higher ranked team if they were about 3 or 4 slots above them in the computer rankings.
