Three and out: Afraid of success?, LSU's staff is decent and things that can't be unseen


It's Summer, things are slow. We figured we'd drop an article every now and then showing some quick things that we found around the web (or in real life) that we thought you might enjoy. 

Doug - Former NDSU athletic director Gene Taylor accepted a position in the athletic department at Iowa back in mid-June, since then only 6 candidates have applied for the NDSU vacant AD position, according to the Jamestown Sun.

It seems like this would be a great situation for an athletic director to walk into. You've got an outstanding football program with three straight national titles and an immensely passionate fan base, a basketball program with numerous NCAA Tournament appearances, and numerous other sports at the top of the conference standings. Nine of NDSU's 16 programs won the conference title this past year.

What's the catch? Why so few applicants? Is the level success intimidating to potential candidates? I simply don't understand.

Scott - I chuckled when reading this tongue in cheek look at LSU's staff and the success they have had from SBNation's "And The Valley Shook".


Zach - I am a complete logo and uniform nerd. I'm loco for logos. Hogwild for helmets. Upside down for uniforms. 

So I got a big kick out of this USA Today article pointing out nifty tricks designers have done with logos from around the sporting landscape. Some you may already know, others you most certainly won't.

See if you can spot a few before clicking over to find the answer.
