OSU assistant coach Tom Herman was in Atlanta on a recruiting trip, and found himself trapped in the mind-boggling traffic jam that a small amount of snow caused on his way to the airport. Hilarious and amazing.
I was cruising Umich.edu looking for any research positions that would enable me to stay here this summer and I came across this gem: "STATEMENT ON ADMISSIONS AND STUDENT-ATHLETES"
Apologies if it was already posted, don't think it was. Good to see somebody made a stink about the dubious work being done in the Admissions Office.
So... that happened...
Pam Ward has received an award for "outstanding contribution in the media to the field of intercollegiate athletics." According to the press release, she "has come to stand out in the fact that her work is not regarded as a novelty."
There are no words.
kicking off the campaign with chesney and a mid-field handshake. less than optimal.
What a couple weeks this has been. First, the market crashes. Next, Osama…oops, I mean Barak Mohammad Obama(bin Ladin) is about to take the White House and bring all his socialist andterrorist buddies to Washington. All that was very, very, very bad. But all of that I could have handled. Socialists? Domestic Terrorists? No problem. We’re used to that kind of stuff in Ann Arbor. What I can’t handle is what I’ve seen the lastsix weeks. I was excited to see theLloyd Carr era end, and had great hopes for the future. Sure, I expected a very tough transition year,as we moved from a Pro Style offense to the spread. Admittedly, I was a member of the Les MilesMafia, and had great hopes that he’d be leading the charge and bringing us backto respectability. Still, when RichRodriguez was named head coach, I embraced the selection.
I looked for the positive in a very ugly loss to NotreDame. Threat was starting to come around…ifonly we hadn’t turned over the ball so many times. Against Wisconsin, I gave up at half time. I started preparing dinner for my family andnoticed we scored a touchdown. Hownice. Maybe we’ll make itrespectable. Another touchdown. Well, let’s make it close. Then we win. Who’d a thought? Reality camecrashing back in last weekend, when we got manhandled by an average Illinois team.
Still, nothing prepared me for today. Crappy MAC team. Toledo? You’ve got to be kidding me. I can blame Lloyd for not having muchreturning on the offensive side of the ball, but I thought we had a soliddefense that would keep us afloat. Whatdefense?
I have now officially turned and suggest we end this Rich Rodriguezexperiment. This is just notworking. Even with a new offensivescheme and young players, there’s no way that Michigan should lose-EVER-to the MAC. This team looked unprepared and was verypoorly coached. Even Lloyd could havedone a better job than this.
I suggest that we get some of our best and brightest at the Michigan Law Schoolto figure out how we get out of this contract, and go hat in hand to LesMiles. Whatever he wants. Just get me a coach. This guy is a disaster.
