RIP Beano Cook

As some are particularly aware, I don't really post much on college football. Much of that I wrote about back last year, which you can read here (a little dated with regards to BCS though). However, Beano Cook was a must-watch for anyone who followed the sport.

He died today at the age of 81. He will be remembered for his passion and knowledge of college football and being a colorful character on television. Whether it was him predicting that Ron Pawlus would win two Heisman Trophies and lead Notre Dame to two national championships, to his legendary blooper reel, he always made TV interesting. It's too bad you were taken from us during the season, as you wished in this video. RIP Beano.
