Two superbowls, people. Two. Tom Coughlin won two superbowls in 12 season with the New York Giants, and now he’s gone. He’s been replaced by some first time head coach 31 years his junior. Ben McAdoo, this successor of the Gmen empire, has coached for 9 different teams since his start in 1996, giving me an eerie feeling concerning both his dedication and achievement.
McAdoo also makes me think the worst because he graduated from a douchey school called Indiana University of Pennsylvania. WHAT? Pick a state, people- or in this case, a commonwealth, damn Penn.
IUP is home to 15,000 students who love wearing crimson and slate, and enjoy confusing people about which of the 50 states they reside. Opening in 1875 as Indiana Normal School, the state purchased the school in the 1920’s, and soon after renamed it State Teacher College at Indiana. So once again, the government is to blame for this illogical mayhem. In 1965, they became what they are today, IUP. You changed your name just 50 years ago and that’s the best you could come up with?
The one thing keeping this school alive is Norm, the Crimson Hawk, who didn’t come along until 2007!
Originally called the Indians, the school had to change their name at the turn of the millenium to keep up with social crap. They removed the Cherokee Indian idea, and made Cherokee the bear.
This only lasted until 2002, when using the name Cherokee at all was forbidden. So they randomly changed themselves to the fighting squirrels.
Unfortunately, this odd fellow only lasted 5 years until it was realized that the situation could be interpreted as a Cherokee Indian being equivalent to a fighting squirrel. And with that, they became the all-respectful, all-wonderful hawk.
