‘Skins Nation, Al Groh, Frank Beamer, Mickey Matthews
Winners and Losers column by Chris Graham
LOSERS: ‘Skins Nation
Sean Taylor – Rest In Peace.
WINNER: Al Groh named ACC coach of the year
How funny things turn out sometimes – ‘Hoo Nation wanted him canned after the Wyoming debacle, now he’s the conference coach of the year and the recipient of a contract extension.
WINNER: Frank Beamer gets the other prize
Ask Groh which he would take – the coach of the year award or the invite to Jacksonville.
LOSER: Mickey Matthews takes the heat for JMU loss
Fourth-and-one from your own 30, first-and-goal from the nine – either decision works out, and JMU upsets mighty App State.
And now Matthews has all winter and spring and summer to think about it.
Wouldn’t want to be him.
