The "U" has a new head coach and one former 'Cane is excited about what he could bring to the table.
Former Buchtel, University of Miami, and NFL linebacker Jay Brophy Sr. joined the Average Sports Show to discuss former Georgia Bulldogs head coach Mark Richt being named the new football coach of the Miami Hurricanes.
Brophy seems to think that the hire is a home run for a team that is looking to reclaim their glory days.
"It's a perfect fit because he is a quarterback guy, and he can help their young quarterback Brad Kaaya," Brophy said.
"He understands the area, the recruiting, and he offensively, is going to make a big difference."
Richt replaces Al Golden, who was fired in the middle of the season at Miami.
The Browns are heading into their game with the Bengals with a record of 2-9, Third-stringer Austin Davis gets the starting nod at quarterback, and they lost to a team without their starting quarterback, running back, and key wide reciever.
Brad Russell voiced his frustrations during the Browns' "Airing of Grievances" during the Average Sports Show.
"The quarterback play isn't even the biggest problem," Russell said. "Josh McCown played his heart out, we know he's a bridge quarterback, but he came in and did his job."
It all comes down to one concept though: finish the game, something the Browns haven't done a whole lot of since their return in 1999.
Casey Drottar from RantSports.com said he had no reaction when Travis Coons' field goal was blocked and returned for a touchdown by the Ravens' Will Hill.
He says many people feel the same way and if the Browns continue their ways, many people will feel the same way.

The chances for OSU to get in the four-team playoff is slim with their loss to Michigan State, explained Pedersen.

He sees Oklahoma being the lone representative from the Big XII in the playoff despite not having a conference title game.

As far as LaSalle, Wakefield knows there's a lot of talent on that side of the ball, and it's going to come down to the trenches.
"It comes down to, can our guys block their guys," he said. "They're real big up front, and their kids defensively aren't as big, but their quick."
Canton Central Catholic, meanwhile will be taking on Coldwater in the Division V State Title contest, and Jeff Lindesmith says that it's a unique experience to play them once more this year after playing them in 2014.
