Memo to Grantham: Do Something First, THEN Talk

I don’t know much about Todd Grantham, but one thing’s for sure: Louisville’s new defensive coordinator has a big mouth. At his introductory news conference January 16, the former Georgia DC decided to forgo the customary modesty and humility, and instead decided to take credit for the Bulldogs’ two SEC East titles earned during his…

Don’t Be Too Rough On Andy Dalton
