Now that Todd Haley has been canned by the Kansas City Chiefs front office, defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel wil serve as Head Coach in the interim. His first game will be versus the undefeated Green Bay Packers- have fun with that.

How much money will it take to get Ferentz to leave the Hawkeyes program?
This situation kind of seems like a NFL vs. college football version of the NBA vs. college basketball decision Tom Izzo faced a couple years ago. Ultimately he decided to stay at Michigan State instead of go to the Cleveland Cavaliers even though he turned down a gigantic pay raise.
