Like most die-hard college football fans, this week can be hard to take with the anticipation of the new season causing the kind of anxiety usually reserved for 7 year-olds on the night before Christmas.
To satisfy my jones, I like to watch lots of ESPN punditry, play tons of EA Sport's NCAA 11 video game (simulating the entire upcoming season) and reading as much as possible about the personalities and pedigrees of the folks whose names will be burned into my psyche for the next 5 months.
While reading up on Oregon's stellar head coach, New Hampshire native Chip Kelly, I noticed that he spent 13 years coaching different positions at his alma mater, The University of New Hampshire. Intriguing.
I wondered what was so incredible about The Granite State that allowed it to keep an offensive genius like Kelly around for so long?
Money? Prestige? Electronic monitoring ankle bracelet?
I decided to check it out.
SPOILER ALERT: Just like Coach Kelly, New Hampshire is totally awesome, innovative and revolutionary in ways I never could never imagine.
