Blanchette: Sweeney kept perspective and humor

In his retirement, Jim Sweeney gazed out over the landscape of college football and saw it dotted with his coaching children. Dennis Erickson, Mike Price, Joe Tiller, Jeff Tedford – former players, former assistants, all sending four and five receivers out and chucking the ball with abandon, the horse Sweeney himself had changed to in the midstream of his career. “I’ve got all these disciples out there,” he noted, shifting into a faux regal air. “Wait, maybe you’d better call them apostles.”
