    Sad. Always liked the old curmudgeon.

    Reds lose, and Beano Cook passes? I'm not sure I can handle the heartbreak...

    He was a bit stuffy, but he knew his football

    I assume Ron Powlus will be giving the eulogy.

    "The Pope of College Football", as former ESPN Radio host Todd Wright, a Reds fan, btw, described him, will be missed.

    One memorable Cook moment had nothing to do with College Football. It was in '04 when Coach K was rumored to take over as the Lakers' coach. Cook assured us that it wouldn't happen for two reasons:

    1) The traffic in L.A.

    2) The extra pay wouldn't be worth it unless one has three ex-wives.

    There will never be another Beano in College Football.

    Re: Beano Cook passes away at 81

    When Beano Cook, the newest member of ABC's college football announcing team, was the Pitt sports information director, he got a call one day from a woman asking for a copy of the Panthers' football roster. "But lady," Beano replied, "there are 120 guys out for the team right now. You really oughtta wait three weeks, till we make the cuts and are down to 75 or 80 kids. Otherwise, it's really a waste of your time."

    The woman, however, was adamant. She needed the roster. Pronto. "But why?" Beano asked, dreading the hours it would take to round up the name of every tackling dummy cluttering up the practice field. "Because," she said, matter of factly, "I want to sleep with everybody on the Pitt football team."

    Beano gasped. "Well," he said, clearing his throat, "in alphabetical order, starting at guard ... Cook, Beano."
