"Jim's a tough guy and you can see his personality is all over this football team," Fitzgerald said.
Just an FYI for anyone interested Bruce Feldman tweeted that he would be on OTL on ESPN today at 3p to talk about Michigan.
Fluff piece on Cory Zirbel transitioning from player to coach. It's great to see he has found a way to contribute, even if it is not on the field.
As there are now TWO, count 'em, TWO weeks left untill the season starts(!), I was just wondering how many games fans on the site were thinking about going to. I plan on attending every game possible, as my dad has season tickets, but I'll probably be watching the OSU game at home on T.V. Also, I've never been to a road game and my dad is hooking us up with some tickets to the Iowa game through his boss, a season ticket holder at Iowa. It might be a little awkward having to sit surrounded by Iowa fans (probably), but I'm excited for that game. I'll probably make it to 6 home games plus the game at Iowa. So, what are everybody else's plans?
I just had lunch with a guy I know who is an MSU fan. He was babbling on about how bad our QBs are going to be this year. So, I bet him that our QBs would have more total yards (he even clarified it as rushing&passing) this coming year than MSUs QBs.
I just got back and looked at statistics from last year. Passing we had 1718 yards and rushing we had 293 (not counting Feagin) for a total of 2011 yards.
MSU had 2773 passing yards, -55 rushing yards, and 2718 total yards. Thats about 700 more yards than our QBs last year.
My question is, do you think I will end up winning this bet? I think that having a QB that can run the read-option properly, throw accurate passes, and scramble out of a collapsing pocket to gain yards instead of lose them will more than make up those 700 yards. What do you guys think?
I found this public calendar for Google Calendar that has all of the announced games for this season and next (and for last season, not that that matters) with times and channels for each. I thought I would pass it along for any one else who wants to have this on their calendars.
Does anyone know if there's a hi-res image out there on the intertubes of the side-view winged helmet image?
I know the athletic dept used it on some things a few years ago (including the student season shirt), but I need a rather large version of it so I can make a stencil. See, I'm painting my new cornhole boards for the start of the season and I'd love to slap that logo on the middle of the boards.
If anyone can help, it would be appreciated.
