If Only There Was A Coaches Poll in Politics...

(From MZone wire reports) Lincoln, NE - Former Nebraska Football coach Tom Osborne was defeated on Tuesday in Nebraska's Republican primary for governor by the state's current governor, Dave Heineman. Heineman got 49 percent of the vote with Osborne getting 45 percent.

In his concession speech, Osborne said he was disappointed because this was his last race. However, upon hearing that Osborne was retiring from politics, former Husker QB Scott Frost lobbied hard for his old coach saying, "If your state's farm subsidies depended on Heineman or Osborne, who would you rather have as your Governor?"

As a result of Scott's remarks and the fact that Peyton Manning still didn't win the Heisman, Tennessee coach Phil Fulmer organized a special vote of the former USA TODAY Coaches Poll. Based on Fulmer dropping Heineman below the American Revolutionary Party on his ballot, Osborne was awarded a share of the Nebraska governorship as a retirement gift. Heineman will retain the title of AP Governor of Nebraska.
