chance of bowl: 13.6%
I want the contents this guys medicine cabinet!
Or just his wife...
Yesterday afternoon, I was boredf watching the 1997 M v. ND game (Oh, how I miss a dominating defense) on BTN. The game was being announced by Keith Jackson and Bob Griese.
I found myself being reminded of why Keith Jackson was my favorite announcer of all-time and how much I miss his call on a Saturday afternoon. The way he told the story that was happening on the field, the quirky things he would say, and just the fond memories I have of him announcing Michigan games really stand out for me.
So, I wanted to know from the MgoBlog community, who are your favorite sport announcers/broadcaster of all time?
USC's 13 year-old recruit's school is in hot water. When it rains, it pours.
I don't know about this approach.
I never liked watching other kids get beatup on the playground just because of their ridiculous duds, so for that reason I'll probably be cheering for the Seminoles in this game.
I'm sure that most of us who have been out of college for a little while have some amount of money saved for retirement--or you're blowing it on hard drugs. Seriously though, anyone with stock in Fed Ex may want to reconsider.
I'm all for random super rich dudes blowing their cash, but this article is talking about using 10 million a year from Fed Ex to sponsor Memphis's inclusion in a BCS AQ conference. I'd be beyond livid if I were a shareholder. It's one thing to pay for a company name on the Orange Bowl, but I don't know that any team is worth 10 million a year to a company that doesn't make sporting goods. To contrast, Michigan signed their Adidas contract for about 7.5 million.
As part of the State of Texas Tier One Initiative to increase the number of tier one research institutes in the state, the University of Texas - San Antonio is likely to be one of the schools that gets the boost. With that, the expanded their athletic department to include a football team, acting as an independent in the FCS. They hope to be a full fledged FBS team by 2014.
That said, the Roadrunners will be playing a home and home series with the University of Houston, another of the schools (this one all but guaranteed to be part of the Tier One Initiative) in the 2013-2014 season. This, to my knowledge, is the first time a FBS team will play "at" a FCS team's stadium (2013 is in San Antonio). The reason for the "at" is that the Roadrunners have been playing at the Alamodome, which could easily be filled with Cougars fans.
The Roadrunners also have home-and-homes set up with Arizona, Arizona State, and Baylor already lined up after their jump to the FBS. Which, like damn. A new team with that schedule set up at home already? Crazy.
