Vote or die.

Friday, November 16th, 2007

Over at ESPN.com there’s a poll going to determine the “greatest college football coach of all time,” the winner of which will be announced during the Rose Bowl. At present, a staggering 88% of the vote is divided between Bear Bryant and Tom Osborne, with the legendary Knute Rockne (102-12-5, with six national titles, in 13 seasons as a head coach) polling at a mere 2%. No doubt this is the product of frenetic get-out-the-vote campaigns among the Alabama and Nebraska netroots (not much going on out there, eh?), but now it’s time for the Irish nation to do their part. So get up off your butt - or stay sitting on it, actually - and cast a vote for Knute. Or die.
