Beano Cook Dead at 81 Thu, 10/11/12 2:26 PM (permalink)
Longtime college football color man Beano Cook died yesterday at age 81.
 
He was the Sports Information Director at Pitt in the 60s and a very enjoyable guy to watch on TV.
 
My best memory of him was his prognostication of the Maryland v. Penn St game back in the 80s, when the Terps could never beat the Nittany Lions:
 
".... and Penn St. will beat Maryland, because they always do."
 
In Pace Requiescat Beano Cook.
