The Allman Brothers, musket balls and gambling
Posted December 3, 2012
Raleigh, N.C. — Former head coach Steve Logan was true to form Monday morning when he joined Mark and Mike on 620 The Buzz, as he does every Monday morning.
This Monday, Logan weighed in on the hiring of head coach Dave Doeren at NC State and described the process of establishing a staff of assistants as well as planting new recruiting lines when moving to a new school.
That led to a discussion of Jerry Moore being out at Appalachian State. Does that mean offensive line coach Dwayne Ledford is poised to move up the coaching ladder? Logan recruited Ledford and recalls having to look out for musket balls flying at his head in the western North Carolina mountains on a recruiting trip.
Then, did you know Logan was once in a garage band? The coach recounts music so loud he was left with permanent hearing loss and resorted to putting the Allman Brothers on his coaching headset in blowouts.
Plus, the advice of an Oklahoma upbringing, “The time to be worried and nervous is when you are placing the bet, not when you are rolling the dice.” Find out what that means when it comes to coaching.
And finally, Logan says the time has come for college football to establish four 16-team conferences where the teams only play each other. Then use a playoff of those teams to decide a winner. Hear more on the details of how he thinks that will play out.
