The Mighty Get Mightier

Let’s look at the new football coaches, okay?

Jeff Rodgers, special teams coordinator: Look for future KSU recruits from Texas to be rated very highly by Jeff Rodgers’ hiring will almost certainly assure that Ron Prince is able to land his first four star rated (by recruit. Thanks in advance, Randy!

Cornell Jackson, linebackers coach: Few collegiate football programs have the storied history of Cornell University. With 120 seasons of football in the books, the Big Red has collected five national titles, won 600 games and has had legendary players and coaches perform on historic Schoellkopf Field. Names such as Glenn "Pop" Warner and Heisman Trophy finalist and NCAA record-breaker Ed Marinaro have suited up for Cornell, while seven College Football Hall of Famers (including Warner, Gil Dobie and Carl Snavely) and multiple-time Super Bowl winner George Seifert have set the strategy as head coaches. Now, with Cornell alum Jim Knowles ‘87 leading the program, there’s little doubt that history will continue to be made.

Warren Ruggiero, quarterbacks coach: According to an SPLC article, "An estimated 110 copies of The Mercury, Glenville State College's weekly student newspaper were stolen in late August. Terry Estep, production manager at the paper, said someone stole the papers in two waves: first out of two bins at the student union building, and then a couple days later from another bin. In the second incident, papers were placed in trash cans, while in the first incident, the perpetrator took them.

"'Basically, I think it was an effort to kill the story,' said Estep. 'As a censorship attempt, it was rather clumsy.'

"When questioned, Estep said football Coach Warren Ruggiero, the coach suspected of swiping the papers, told school officials he took only between five and seven papers for friends and family."
