Northern Iowa makes an error

Mike Waddell wooed the people of Cedar Falls, Iowa, turning his trip to campus into a political stump, according to the local newspaper.
The University of Northern Iowa decided not to hire the former Akron associate athletic director to its AD job. Rather, the Panthers went with Troy Dannen, whose experience entails being executive director of a statewide girls' sports organization.
Although Mack Rhoades was probably more qualified to get the Akron AD job, Waddell should be UNI's AD, instead of this Dannen fellow. Despite this rant, rest assured, The Wad will get his shot.

In my opinion, this will be the most intriguing camp since 2005, when I started the blog.'s Dan Kadar discussed the possibility of Jason Taylor becoming a Cleveland Brown.
