Florida Eyeing Boise State’s Petersen?

When Urban Meyer suddenly announced his retirement on Tuesday evening it did not take long for the rumor mill to begin churning out names for who would be his successor in Gainesville. One name that has consistently come up to replace Urban Meyer has been Chris Peterson of Boise State, and finally thanks to credible sources it appears that Perterson’s name is moving to the top of the list of applicants/YardBarker. More here. And: Todd Kaufmann’s insights here.

Question: Could Boise State stay on top of the non-BCS heap without Coach Pete?

Junior’s Next Great Adventure

Junior called Mrs. O this morning to say that the movers arrived this morning to pack the stuff he and Sweet Stephanie accumulated during the last 8 years in Denver. On Friday, they will point their vehicle southeast to begin a 3 or 4 day road trip to Gainesville, Fla., where, God willing, Junior will complete a residency in neurosurgery at University of Florida 7 years from now. All of which reminds me of the great adventure that Mrs. O & I started two weeks shy of 33 years ago from central California. I’d never heard of Kalispell, Mont., until shortly before I was offered a job with Duane Hagadone’s Daily Inter Lake in June 1977. My wife had never seen the Flathead Valley until I drove our rental truck down H93 into it. I often wonder what life would have been like, if I’d resisted the Big Sky call. It’s been very interesting as is.

Question: Have you ever moved to a different location that changed the course of your life?
