A kind reader made me aware of a mistake I made in the "Hump Day Stuff" entry. In noting Bronco's coaching record and his standing compared to other coaches hired at the same time he was, I have corrected the entry to show his rookie year as 2005, instead of 2003 (I had "3rd year" on the brain--hence the 3). And I added the words "first-time," to note that he is being compared to head coaches who got their first FBS head coaching jobs that year, as opposed to coaches like Urban Meyer, who were already head coaches at other schools.
