North Texas Coach Dan McCarney Suffers Stroke: University of North Texas head football coach Dan McCarney suffered a stroke on Sunday at his Denton, Texas, home and is recovering in the hospital. "I was just sitting down to eat a sandwich when my left side went numb," said McCarney, 58, who coached at Iowa State for 12 seasons and just finished his first with the Mean Green. "The doctors -- and they've been fantastic -- say I'm fine. ... Nothing wrong with me that a little Grey Goose won't cure."

I may have a lead regarding at least one thing he may be able to do to improve his health situation.

But I'm not judging. If I ever have to suffer through a stroke, I would like at least 10% of any IV inserted into me to be Basin Hayden's. Or Corralejo Reposado-you know, to keep my energy level up.

He may be strictly a clear liquids man, in which case he should decide whether or not Grey Goose is a good value or not.

If he's going to spend decent money on his fluid intake, he might want to consider some Polish potato product. Shouldn't go through life assuming that the wheat material is the ultimate restorative.

Did great things in his years at Iowa State and is well remembered there. Current ISU women's basketball coach Bill Fennelly tweeted about the stroke before news had been released confirming it was a stroke. Hope he recovers well!
