Wednesday, January 6, 2016 – Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport! Or Some Puzzling Questions.
A most valued reader of Here’s What I’m Thinking left a football puzzle as a comment the other day. Thank you, Reader Reggie for reading and the comment. I do not know the answers so I am offering the puzzlers to others today. I can think of many D-I college football coaches that are considered donkeys, but I am going have to jump around online to research coaching kangaroos.
And now, jumping to our puzzle.
“Dear Madam Rose……… Now that most bowl games are behind us…….until 1/11 that is…… here are a series of bowl related puzzlers to ponder while waiting for the Ags to select a QB and/or OC.
A Div 1 bowl team is blessed with a kangaroo for a head coach. Can you name the coach & team ?
A different Div1 bowl team’s head coach has kangaroos on his résumé……..as well as the Hall of Fame. Can you name the coach?
Yet another Div 1 bowl team, in a record tying victory, utilized a QB who is a member of a kangaroo family. Can you name the team & QB ?
Hint….think Old Main.”
- # 1: Too bad it is not Kliff Kingsbury from Tortilla Tech. It would make such great alliteration.
- # 2: Dear Coach Kingsbury, I know you love your alma mater, and you are cranking it up a notch, but just in case you have not heard, the Offensive Coordinator position is open at Texas A&M.
- # 3: One QB has already selected the Texas Aggies and with high school signing day now less than a month I am sure others will select the Harvard on the Brazos as their choice. Meanwhile – SEC! SEC! SEC! ROLL TIDE!
Old Main? – Sam Houston State University once had a building called Old Main.
I shall seek intellectual guidance and stimulation at the local Academic Salon where all Aggies go to think deep thoughts.
If you can solve the puzzle, please contact Reader Reggie for your prize. I think it is a stuffed kangaroo.
Old Main was located on Sam’s campus but was built for another institution of higher education prior to Sam’s founding. A bit of historical research could be the key to resolving the puzzlers. Keep digging!
