Zook meeting the troops
Illinois coach Ron Zook and four other college coaches are on their way to Germany and Southwest Asia to meet with American troops as part of the USO/Morale Entertainment tour.
Joining Zook will be Army coach Rich Ellerson, Oregon's Chip Kelly, Harvard's Tim Murphy and Texas Tech's Tommy Tuberville.
The dates and stops on the tour haven't been released yet for security reasons. But the tour is expected to start later in the month.
