I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
At least that's what goofy-named Kara Yorio of TSN says. Draft order will be determined by a 30-team weighted lottery. Amazing. The most hyped prospect since Eric Lindros (Sydney Crosby) is in this draft and no one even gets to tank the season for him.
That's "not equal" for those of you who aren't giant flaming computer dorks. Spath drops a hint on the Wolverine's public board that new '06 goalie commit Steve Jakiel may not be a designated backup in the Ruden/Mayhew mold. "Could he end the four year run of goalies?" is the exact quote if you're too lazy to click the link.
(And think about that if you are. You're sitting in front of your computer, surfing the internet, and something you can do in this situation is too much effort. You have a problem, hypothetical person.)
Honor&Glory on buckeyeplanet.com says that Colerain LB Cobrani Mixon has been offered. I regularly peruse the recruiting board on BP; it's extremely thorough and, if you can get past the juvenile name-calling, an excellent resource for recruits that are also considering OSU. Generally, that's a lot. H&G seems like a very legit poster and claims to be a former Colerain player.
Mixon suffered an ACL tear last year which must have been partial because he played on it a few months after the injury. So he's one tough SOB. I'd look for a commitment from him in the near future if H&G is indeed correct.
He's been traded (yes, HIM) to the Sixers for... Brian Skinner, Kenny Thomas, and Corliss Williamson? What? Did I read that wrong? Even a gimpy HWMNBN, and he'll always be gimpy now, is worth far more than two scrubs and Corliss. And Kenny Thomas' contract isn't much worse than HWMNBN.
Does this make the Sixers a contender? Maaaaybe. This is the East we're talking about and the combo of AI and HWMNBN plus the deadly shooting of Kyle "Steve Kerr 2005" Korver... well, they'll be a playoff team now and one I'd like to avoid in the first round, but they do not have this Pistons fan quaking in my proverbial boots.
Iowa fans have you covered. Linked thread was started by an OSU fan accusing Iowa fans of having a "hard-on" (sorry, kids! It means "like in a special way!") for UM and a corresponding lack of respect for OSU.
What follows is a bunch of Iowa fans describing how UM ROOLZ and OSUcks. If you're interested. And you probably are, don't kid yourself.
Michigan's picked up another goalie for '06 says tbarr. He's probably destined to play Ruden '06, but has nice stats, 13-4-1 with a .923 save percentage for Lincoln of the USHL.
Also, in other goalie news, Minnesota's Kellen Briggs is out "indefinitely". Their version of Ruden may have to carry them into the playoffs.
