Pat Dye Believes Condoleezza Rice’s Hands Are Not Dirty Enough

October 8, 2013

As college football tries to get away from the controversy of the BCS, it’s created a whole new hornets nest with its selection committee for the new playoff, which begins in 2014. Namely, the selection of former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
Former Auburn coach Pat Dye is the latest to chime in on why Rice is the wrong person for the 12-to-18-person selection committee. “All she knows about football is what somebody told her,” Dye told the WJOX morning show, The Opening Drive. “Or what she read in a book, or what she saw on television. To understand football, you’ve got to play with your hand in the dirt.”

Former Auburn coach and AD Pat Dye, responsible for 2 years of Auburn football probation, believes to be a successful college football playoff committee member, you need to have dirty hands.



Obama And Condoleezza Rice, “Eye View of the World” Apples and Oranges

October 16, 2010

 US President Barack Obama  met Friday at the White House with former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice for a chat on foreign policy and her new memoir, officials said.

Rice gave the president a “personalized copy” of “Extraordinary, Ordinary People: A Memoir of Family,” in which Rice describes her childhood in racially segregated Birmingham, Alabama, a White House spokesman said.

The Oval Office meeting marked the first time Rice has been back to the White House since former president George W. Bush left office.

They discussed “a range of national security issues, and we’re going to leave it at that,” said Tommy Vietor, a White House spokesman.

Deputy White House Press Secretary Bill Burton earlier would not say whether the topics for discussion included Afghanistan or Iraq, subjects on which Obama and Rice have sharply divergent views.
