"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."
SportsTalk313 just posted a season preview piece that quickly outlines each game. Not a ton of in-depth info in this one, but it predicts 9 wins minimum and says "anything over that will be a successful year." I'm inclined to agree...I think we should win more than 9 if everyone stays healthy.
Also, I had no idea Nebraska is off the schedule until at least 2017(!)
I am attending the Chicago Football Preview featuring our very own Brian, Sam Webb, and Gerry Dinardo. Does anybody have any questions they want asked?
Getting excited for the season hope you all are also. Closer than you think.
Article on SI about Michigan recruiting on an elite level and mentions this very site.
Yesterday new Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman decided not to retain former Michigan OC and Bears TE coach Mike Debord.
Debord is officially on the market.
FWIW Marc Trestman was a Golden Gopher QB in the late 1970s.
So, here's a quick Outback Bowl wallpaper for you all featuring "Captain Gibbons" and his parrot. This was a fun wallpaper to make, so I hope you enjoy it and get a chuckle out of seeing Gibbons as his boyhood dream. Now, let's kick some South Carolina/SEC ass!
BONUS CONTENT! Here's my avatar, in case anyone is interested.
Title basically says it all and I think both articles raise interesting discussion: an IUPU-Columbus reseacher put together valuations for NCAA football programs that Gene Wojo used in his overall ranking of head coaching jobs in all of football.
Michigan lands at #3 in football program value, behind Texas and Florida, and lands at #8 (tied with OSU) for overall job in football, with the Packers as #1. Those are obviously pretty great numbers for us but I'm interested in what everyone else thinks of the overall rankings.
