Does The Head Football Coach At George Fox Have The Worst Signature Of All Time?

I was scrolling D3 twitter this evening when I stumbled upon another ridiculous D3 football offer tweet. As a former D3 two-sport athlete – I still cannot believe that this is a thing. There is no such thing as a D3 offer. It baffles me.

Anyways, something caught my eye inside one of the images posted within this “offer”.

Before I get into this – Chris Casey, the head coach at George Fox – is an awesome guy. I respect the man immensely. Not only is he a former Wildcat, he does a ton for his community.

With that being said – he may have the worst signature of all time. This looks like something one of my students would churn out shortly after they start to get the hang of writing with cursive.

You have to wonder – is this hurting recruiting at George Fox? Do high school athletes receive this image to post on their twitter, and then second guess themselves when they set eyes upon that signature?

I know that when I was being recruited – HEAVILY – by D3 programs, it really came down to the wire. I got down to my final two schools and had a tough time deciding where I wanted to go. All things considered, a strong signature from the head football coach could have swayed me either way.

The Portland Metro Area Gets Superb NFL Games: Week 14

Last week was officially graded as a “great” week for NFL on TV in the Portland-Metro Area. Will this week be any different? Let’s find out.

Here is what we have coming up for Week 14:

Cowboys @ Bears

Big game for the Cowboys – kind of. The NFC East is more like the NFC LEAST, but the Cowboys are still in position to host a playoff game.

Ravens @ Bills

This is a good game?

49ers @ Saints

Huge game for both teams.

Chiefs @ Patriots

Huge game for the Chiefs. Hopefully they can beat the Pats while they are down. I want to see another AFC team with the #1 seed in the playoffs.

Seahawks @ Rams

The Rams are creeping up on a playoff spot, while the Seahawks are fighting for the #1 seed.

Giants @ Eagles

Go Giants! Help the Cowboys secure the NFC East crown.

We have ourselves a superb week of NFL action in the Portland Metro Area. Only one game is gross, and it still has playoff implications for the Cowboys.

College Football Rankings (Week 14) And Picks (Conference Championship Edition)

Many contributors to Hefty Headlines were invited to participate in our Week 14 poll. Five members of the crew participated, Stormin’ Mormon half-assed it and only submitted his picks.

Hefty Headlines Top 10 Poll: Week 14

Our top three remains untouched, however, Oklahoma now slides in tied with Georgia at #4. Michigan and Minnesota fall out of the top ten this week, they are replaced by the Oregon Ducks and Baylor Bears.

Conference Championship Picks

The race for the best winning percentage is heating up – it is down to three real contenders. Tommy Nuggets is in the lead, but Stormin’ Mormon and Chamby are right on his tail. Bix and Klyde Frog are in the back of the pack, and I have all but eliminated myself.

The Portland Metro Area Gets AMAZING NFL Games: Week 12

Last week was officially graded as an “Boring” week for NFL on TV in the Portland-Metro Area. Will this week be any different? Let’s find out.

Here is what we have coming up for Week 12:

Let’s take a deeper dive into what is on TV this week:

Thursday Night

Colts @ Texans

This game is intriguing. The winner will take sole possession of the AFC South.

FOX Early

Seahawks @ Eagles

MY SEATTLE SEAHAWKS need to come up big and beat the Eagles on the road. Let’s build the lead in the NFC East for America’s team.

CBS Late

Jaguars @ Titans

If this game is a Color Rush matchup I am all in. If it isn’t, then why is it on TV?

FOX Late

Cowboys @ Patriots

The best coach and the best quarterback in the NFL will take on Bill Belichick and Tom Brady in New England.

Sunday Night

Packers @ 49ers

The top two teams in the NFC face off in a game where they will talk about Aaron Rodgers non-stop. Should be a fun game to watch as long as you mute your TV.

Monday Night

Ravens @ Rams

Lamar Jackson – the GOAT – in primetime? Hell yes.

Wrap-Up

This is an “AMAZING” week for NFL action in Portland. We have a watchable game in every time slot. Should be a glorious weekend.

College Football Rankings (Week 12) And Picks (Week 13)

Our top three remains untouched – it is hard to imagine a playoff scenario without LSU, Ohio State and Clemson. The Georgia Bulldogs jump up to #4, leapfrogging Oregon and Alabama.

Myles Garrett Should Be Charged With Assault

I didn’t watch the game last night – c’mon it was Browns-Steelers, that is a big who cares game for me. However, I did see the highlights – it was pretty wild what Myles Garrett did. Swinging a helmet at another player’s head is an absolute insane person thing to do.

I know that the NFL is going to suspend him – and it looks like they just gave him an indefinite ban. The act of swinging a helmet at Mason Rudolph’s head is a straight up criminal offense. That is way beyond the realm of the game of football.

In the heat of the moment, sure you might take a swing at someone or push them – but to rip off a helmet and actually hit them in the head with it is a lock-them-up move.

Let’s take a deeper dive into what is on TV this week:

Thursday Night

Steelers @ Browns

Gross. No thanks.

CBS Early

Texans @ Ravens

Lamar Jackson is the best player in the NFL. I’m excited to see what he can do against the Texans.

Fox Late

Cardinals @ 49ers

This is fine, I guess. The Cardinals have Kyler, I might have this game on in the background.

CBS Late

Patriots @ Eagles

This is a solid game and a rematch of Super Bowl-whatever. I need the Pats to win to keep the Cowboys in the division lead.

Sunday Night

Bears @ Rams

Boring. The Rams are old news and the Bears are trash.

Monday Night

Chiefs @ Chargers

The Chiefs are fun to watch, the Chargers are not.

Wrap-Up

This is a “boring” week for NFL action in Portland. Anyone have anything fun going on this Sunday?

Wrap Up

This weekend we have an elimination game in the Big 12 – the loser likely out of playoff contention. The Baylor Bears could prove to be a real contender with a win over Oklahoma.

Minnesota gets a chance to prove they are for-real for-real with a game on the road at Iowa.
