Happy Monday, 'Nova Nation! It didn't come this past weekend, but each Saturday could mean the end of the Andy Talley era. It will be a sad and nostalgic day.

(But hopefully there's one more National Championship first!)

So prepare for plenty of goodbye Andy articles, like the one below from popular 'Nova Football beat Terry Toohey. Andy's going out on his terms, and he feels like he's left the program set up to succeed in the long run. That's all we can ask for.

Now get behind the program, administration!

And now, the "news."
