My Favorite Moments From Super Bowls Past

I'll be posting my personal favorite moments from past Super Bowls over the next few days. For some reason I watch these highlights year after year. If there are any you have leave a comment. I'm sure everyone won't agree with mine.

Super Bowl XIII- My uncle was and still is a Steelers fan, therefore I was one. I still enjoy this action packed game, as the Steelers capitalized on Dallas miscues. I have a lot of moments from this game. I still enjoy the clincher.

There was also the Jackie Smith drop and the most disputed pass interference call in Super Bowl history called on Benny Barnes. The drop is around the 3:00 mark.

Super Bowl XIV- Another game I can still watch. I loved the two long Stallworth catches. I still think Stallworth was a better receiver than Swann, and a lot of people will debate me on that.

Stallworth caught another long bomb later which set up the final touchdown.


Pick A Towel, Any Towel

The producer of the Pittsburgh Steelers 'Terrible Towel' has a split loyalty in the upcoming Super Bowl.

Wisconsin towelmaker McArthur Towel and Sports has been making Terrible Towels for years. Now it wants to make one for Packers, since company president Gregg McArthur is a devoted Packers fan.

My suggestion is to churn out as many towels as you can and watch the money roll in. You can't miss on this business oppurtnity.   

Greg Schiano Is A Dictator

In my eyes, the shine has worn off of Rutgers head football coach Greg Schiano. Just a few years ago he was one of if not the hottest name among college coaches. He revived a wayward Rutgers program and has led them to more bowls than they could've imagined and he's done it the right way. He's had a couple of sub par seasons and I think it may be time for a change of scenery. If you ask me, I think he's waiting for Joe Paterno to retire so he can take the Penn State job, of course that's no guarantee.

What's not helping his reputation right now is the handling of the Tom Savage situation. Savage was a highly recruited quarterback out of Pennsylvania. Savage didn't exactly light it up during his time at Rutgers and was being yanked in and out of the starting lineup. With all that yo-yo'ing going on, Savage figured he'd had enough and decided to transfer. Here's where Schiano is screwing up. He's limiting Savage's options on where he can transfer. If he was going to transfer within the Big East, I would understand. Savage has looked at Miami, and they do have warm, fuzzy feelings for each other. Schiano on the other hand says he can't go to Miami. Or Florida, Florida State, or Michigan. All schools outside the Big East.

What is Schiano worried about? It's not like the guy is going to come back and haunt him. Savage's dad, Tom Savage Sr. is appealing Schiano's methods. He's not too thrilled about the foolishness Schiano is pulling.

"I don't understand how one person can be dictator over your son's future," Savage Sr. said of Schiano. "I know they recruit Florida, but the ones that want to go to Rutgers are going to go to Rutgers. … It's just wrong. I will talk to a lawyer.''

I have to agree with Mr. Savage. Schiano has no justification to deny Savage to transfer to Miami or anywhere else, especially when a school resides outside of your conference. This is one battle Schiano is sure to lose.
