rundown of Michigan's riser
File under Alamo beseiged, but Chris Rogers is officially transferring to Penn State. He'll have to pay his own way since Big Ten rules prohibit intraconference transfers.
Reilly Olson. Probably in about five minutes of ice-time, but he's better than an empty jersey. I hope he gets a hatter.
Should have titled it Woe, Blue but what are you going to do? Many, many distressing things in that post, but the worst: Michigan has been outrebounded in four of the last five games. In three of those games the deficit was double-digits. And we have legitimate post players!
Soft, soft, soft legitimate post players, I guess. Someone needs to inject some angry juice into Sims and Hunter.
They're serious. It'll be interesting to see what happens tonight. I sit in the first row so I get to hug a policeyman tonight. I usually don't do the cheer at all, but I think I'll do this tonight:
What basketball game? Leave me alone.
According to the Free Press, Jim Presley will return next year after he left the team due to academic issues this year. With all the rumors flying around about losing a linebacker due to academics or medical or whatever, this is certainly good news.
This year's list can be found here. Bass is 2, Grady 5, Taylor 11, Manningham 12, Harrison 13, and Simpson 19. Where is Zoltan the Inconcievable? Outrage!
Other things of note: 2000 Best of the Midwest had no Wolverines. Kelly Baraka status: "attempting to sign with an NCAA Division I-A school for next fall."
Don Banks has written an article on the worst coaching mistakes in Super Bowl history. It mentions the Pats-Rams Super Bowl that Brady and Law were in... but not really. This really has nothing to do with Michigan at all. Sorry, but it's so unbelievably stupid that I have to talk about it.
The third worst coaching decision in Super Bowl history? Mike Ditka not getting Walter Payton a touchdown in Super Bowl XX. The Bears won that game 46-10! Freaking 46 to freaking 10! You couldn't have picked an event that had a material impact on a game? Or maybe a coach who's team, you know, lost? Number two is Mike Holmgren's absolutely correct decision to let the Broncos score on second and goal from the one with 1:45 left in Super Bowl XXXII. The Pack got the ball back with 1:39 to play on their 30 with two timeouts... oh, and Brett Fav-ruh. 1997 Brett Fav-ruh!
Enough of this. I condemn Don Banks to hell. That's all.
