UIW got it right! Yet again! Eric Morris was a great head coaching hire. G.J. Kinne was a great head coaching hire.
And now San Antonio home-grown Cardinal alum Clint Killough will take over as the Head Bird at Broadway and Hildebrand. Killough, who has served as UIW’s assistant head coach and wide receivers coach, was promoted Thursday morning to succeed Kinne, who is headed to Texas State.
I’m beyond elated. Clint’s the guy. That was a pitch-perfect selection. Much more here in the days to come.
But first some pressing business. Incarnate Word at North Dakota State Friday night in the FCS national semifinals. That’s a heavyweight fight. That’s High Explosive Cargo in Fargo.
This will be quite the challenge for the Cardinals. NDSU has made the FCS playoffs 13 years in a row and is 33-1 all-time in home playoff games.
What a day and night this will be for San Antonio area college and high school football. That matchup between UTSA and Troy in the Cure Bowl is tasty. Each team is riding a 10-game winning streak.
And Friday afternoon the 15-0 Boerne Greyhounds take on China Spring in the Class 4-A Division I final in Arlington. The Greyhounds are seeking their first state championship. That team is absolutely loaded on both sides of the ball.
Yes, the Philadelphia Eagles are very good, and very consistent. Yes, the Dallas Cowboys are legitimate contenders. But it’s going to be very hard to keep the 49ers out of the Super Bowl. The Niners have “The Look,” and nothing seems to bother them. And right now I think Kyle Shanahan is the best coach in the NFL.
One other NFC team to watch out of the corner of your eye. The Commanders. I’m serious.
Can you envision the Buccaneers beating the Bengals Sunday? I can’t.
And how cool is this? It’s Week 14, and a game between the Jets and Lions is not only meaningful, it’s exciting!
Hey, Cowboys in general and Micah Parsons in particular. I know the Eagles are coming down the chimney on Christmas Eve, but you’d best get your minds on the Jaguars first. Yes, the Jags are well worth your attention.
The truth is that volleyball—the full-team indoor version—is my second favorite team sport. Pulling hard for the Longhorns in Saturday’s NCAA Final against Louisville.
