Kudos To Coach Gattuso and The UA Football Team
Big shout-out to U Albany head football coach Greg Gattuso and the Great Danes for receiving an automatic bid into the College Football Championship tournament. Coach Gattuso has become a favorite of mine and Chrissy's throughout the years and while we're happy for him professionally, we're even more thrilled for coach personally. Always a stand-up guy, he's appeared on our show even when the team was having a down year, never complained, always staying true to his team and his beliefs that he would turn things around. And he did...
The Great Danes had a great season finishing 8-4 and the watch party on Sunday produced cheers by players and staff when the Danes saw their logo flash on the screen announcing who their first round playoff opponent would be.
The Danes will play at home on Saturday at 1pm versus 11-1 Central Connecticut State. The College Football Championship will feature 24 top teams vying for the FCS championship.
