LOOKING FOR BALANCE: Addressing the criticism that Rice doesn’t know some of the intricacies of college football, Osborne said that while “it will be important to have some people who know a little bit about the difference between a cover-2 and man-to-man defense,” that type of information can be readily explained, if necessary. Big East senior adviser Tom Jernstedt agreed, saying that such in-depth knowledge is not necessary to being on the committee. “Having a balance of individuals involved in a variety of areas makes the group stronger,” Jernstedt said.
