I’m betting you never drove that route to Philly... if you did - you pissed off Siri somewhere along the way and she laughed @ you the whole time.
I’m betting I have (it’s actually 80W) and I’m also betting there’s little to no traffic that way. A bit scenic cutting through Milford and the Poconos and nope Siri never laughed because I don’t need Siri for the ride
I’ve also tried to do the 95 thing and it can be disastrous with the trucks and construction.
But hey, to each his own right?

Maybe Whaler is trying to say we have our OC off on a recruiting trip and tweeting like he’s going off with Jake and Elwood.

There are certainly things that are grossly underfunded in this program, to be sure. But I don't really mind Giufre doing this trip by car. And I have high hopes for him as our new OC because I think he's a high quality football guy.

As for having a new offensive coordinator every year... well, this is like the Defense Against The Dark Arts post; it's always a one year thing... ;)

Do you know his plan? I mean other than driving to Philly? Visiting a guy in Jersey maybe? A slight side trip to Delaware? I met one of the coaches on the Jersey Tpk a couple of years ago. Hitting south jersey and Philly it happened. As it happens I used to travel to Central PA a lot and flying to Philly wasn’t worth the effort especially if you had multiple stops to make.

Then there is this.

If he takes his own car, he probably gets reimbursed 54 cents a mile. Up and back is easily 500 miles, thrown in another couple of hundred for driving to and fro around state. So say he puts 700 miles on his odometer.

He pockets $378. Nice lttle chuck of change. Makes driving worth it.

It was Sunday...not like he had meetings with players/coaches on the travel day. But I will play along - 40 minutes from Storrs to Bradley, 1:30 at the airport for security and boarding. 1:30 flight to Philly. 30 minutes to disembark and get rental. Unknown drive time to final destination. 4 hours 10 minutes if everything runs smoothly. Drive from Storrs to Philly 4 hours 30 minutes on a Sunday. I also don’t know how comfortable our new OC is in a plane seat.

He's probably going to take several stops to see some highschool coaches on the way.

No need to fly when you can touch base with all of the coaches in new jersey as well
