It’s less office than throne, really, modeled after the thrones of the other kings of his profession.
When Clint Trickett made the decision to transfer from Florida State to West Virginia, some thought it was crazy to make the move. After all, Trickett could have played behind Jameis Winston and won a national championship, or he could leave the Noles and find playing time elsewhere.

Listen, I like going on television as much as the next guy, but Saturday during the Baylor-West Virginia game on FOX I was busier than a rooster in a henhouse.
And while I'm certain the rooster would have had a good time, this game was no fun for me -- or the officials.
