A Conversation With Charley West: Greg Schiano Edition

As the proprieter of a world famous blog and locally famous bait and tackle shop, I get the chance to sit down and have a conversation with a lot of interesting individuals. Today, I get the chance to interview Greg Schiano, head-coach of the Rugers Scarlet Knights. Let's see what Greg had to say, shall we.

Greg Schiano, thanks so much for joining us today. It's a huge honor.

No problem, Charley. It's my pleasure.

Now, Greg, let me ask you: are you confident about your chances in the Big East this year?

Absolutely. Rutgers football is really turning the corner.

You mean the corner you've been turning since you played in the first football game in 1869?


Or the corner you've been turning since your first bowl appearance a short 109 years later?


Or the corner you've been turning since not winning the Big East for a consecutive 18 years since joining the conference in 1991?

Yep, that's the one.

OK, well at least we're on the same page.

The future really is bright at Rutgers. We've added on to the stadium, brought in some great recruits, and play one of the toughest schedules in the country.

Wait, don't you play Howard, Florida International, Texas Southern, and Army out of conference this year?


So how is that hard?

Texas Southern has a great kicker. Kathy Ireland I think is her name. Great tits.

One, that was Texas State. Two, it was a fictional movie. And three, amen on the tits.

That older QB was pretty good too. I loved him in Quantum Leap.

Scott Bakula does rock.

And besides, have you seen Army? They have machine guns and fighter planes...

I don't think that's how it works.

...and nuclear weapons.

I'm pretty sure nuclear weapons would be a 15 yard penalty.

Yeah, probably, but the refs only call holding like 10% of the time, so how many nuclear attacks are they going to notice?

Can't argue with that logic. So, even with all the advanced weaponry, you guys can pull out the win?

We have a great O-line.

But you have a true freshman QB behind that line. And no receivers. Or running backs. And there's a nuclear attack involved...

Have you seen how good our O-line is?

Yes, but what about all that other stuff?

O-line. O-line. O-line.

So, what you're telling me is your entire season is based on your O-line?


And this is a good strategy?

The national media seems to think so, and when have they ever been wrong?

Good point. Good luck in the International Bowl.

Thanks. Wait, what?
