Lovie and Underwood must have the greatest total cubic inches of head of any pair of D1 coaches.

Huggy Bear has a pretty big dome, just hidden beneath a great coif

It's been said before but it merits reiteration: Josh Whitman is one impressive man. Terrific representative for this fine institution.

Straight from Whitman's mouth: only reached out to Underwood for the first time on Wednesday, first time directly on Saturday morning.

Wow.

Underwood wearing a lapel pin that appears to be a 150 year U of I anniversary pin. Kinda cool.

I didn't realize he had a son on the roster at Okie St. Is he anticipated to contribute after transferring here?

I'd guess since he redshirted he's probably decent.


Never mind. Didn't realize he was a medical redshirt.

Likely a non-contributor. Medical redshirt at SFA, and then garbage time minutes this season at OSU.

He was a medical redshirt at SFA. I thought he was a preferred walk-on at OSU but I may be off there.

Looks like walk on at SFA and walk on at OSU. Has to sit out next year, having already used his one-time transfer waiver, not that it should matter.

I like this guy. Welcome Coach Underwood.

Time to go down to Kuhns and order an orange blazer.
