To update you all on a few things, I flew to Nashville last Monday for my interview with Vanderbilt. I enjoyed my visit there, and everyone was sharp and classy. It seems like a great office atmosphere and the people seem to genuinely enjoy the school and community. I walked away from the interview feeling like I really impressed them. I think I'll be offered the job. I'm hoping I am. It would be nice to be offered a great job, at a great school in a great conference. Who wouldn't want that? And it never hurts to have options. I'm in no hurry to get out of this place. Hell, if someone called me to offer the Vandy job Thursday night , I would've said no. If someone had called me up Friday afternoon, I would've said yes. My mind has been thinking about this constantly, as you can tell. If forced to make it, the decision will not be easy. I just want to make sure it is educated, solid decision and not one made by emotion. Hell, I just hope to have the option. So we'll see. Either way, I'm in a good situation.
The Huskies continued the magical season yesterday, coming from behind in the 4th quarter to win another overtime thrilled vs. Ohio. It was an ugly game for the most part, but the guys found a way to win. The season is in full swing, and our guys are feeling all of the emotions possible. I just hope we don't feel the one of defeat. It would be sweet to crash the BCS party!
Next Monday night, I get to see my boysVertical Horizon in concert. I'm heading into Chicago to give both Flip and Kristen their first VH experience. Greg and I were just discussing, via IM, how VH's music has changed over the years. Their new stuff is more rock. It's more pop. It is different from the humble beginnings of VH, on their acoustic guitars. I may miss the older stuff, but they have a job. Music is their career. They've got to sell some albums right now. The new album is good. I like it a lot. But it hasn't quite touched me like some of the previous albums. But that is ok. I just wish they'd put out a new cd ever few months. I enjoy all of their music, and I can't wait to see them next week.
Well that's it for this installment. Time to watch some football and baseball. GO CUBS!
