Each fall Matt Jones will receive a call from a Kentucky Sports Radio listener that has a dilemma. The Kentucky football team is playing, yet the caller is forced to attend a friend or family member’s wedding. The conflict is a traditional unlike any other.

Of course, the person who did not have the decency to schedule their nuptials for the bye week or any of the other 40 weeks of the year is an inconsiderate jerk. It is known. A wedding can be planned. Some college football conflicts, like the birth of your child, cannot be avoided, or can they?

Neal Brown is proof that you can have it all — a family and college football — without the two conflicting.

One observant 247 Sports reporter noticed the Danville native and West Virginia head football coach was busy this week celebrating birthdays for all three of his children. The ages of Adalyn, Anslee and Dax range from 13-6 and all were born within four days of one another. This means all three of his children were born after National Signing Day and before the start of spring football.

College football is a year round sport. Brown and his wife picked the two-three weeks of dead time to have children and each arrived within days of one another. That level of precision in planning is what sets the good football coaches apart from the great. Bravo.

    My two kids’ birthdays are 4 days apart, but three birthdays that close together is impressive and really efficient!

      My in-laws were really on the ball in this regard. My wife and all 3 of her siblings have birthdays within a two week period in February.

    The big question is, when is Neal’s B-Day? Is birthday sex responsible for the conception?
