The Governor’s Cup luncheon press conference will get underway in a few short minutes, giving the world their first joint look at the two new faces leading the state’s biggest football programs. Joker Phillips will likely answer the Donte Rumph question, talk about the quarterback situation and make a few jokes about versatility. Charlie Strong can offer the hot-off-the-press news that senior corner Johnny Patrick plead guilty to a lesser charge and will enter a diversion program and counseling.
But, no matter what happens, there’s going to be one missing presence this year. A legend has left the building and, yes, he will be missed.
