“The player development is the main thing I like (about Michigan),” Williams said. “You can see that they develop their players. They get them in the gym and they work them hard. And their hard work pays off.”
Tulane AD Rick Dickson has accepted resignation of HC Bob Toledo (formerly of HC of UCLA 1996-2000). Al Borges was the OC for Bob Toledo at UCLA from 1996-2000.
Bob Toledo was 13-35 at Tulane over 4 years and never coached a winning season there.
In December 1998 when Tommy Bowden left head job at Tulane for Clemson HC postin.
The then Tulane AD Sandy Barbour appointed Rich Rodriguez as the interim head coach.
At that time Tommy Bowden was recruiting hard for Rodriguez to come with him to Clemson to be his OC there.
Rodriguez said this back in December 1999:
"Of the four, I'd prefer to stay as Tulane's coach," Rodriguez said. "I've kind of set next Wednesday as my deadline to decide. That's when we begin practicing for the bowl game."
Would Rodriguez ever wish to return to New Orleans, LA? Time will tell.
I have notice the incessant obsession with how dirty they MSU was and the malaise it has immediately created escpecially with the Tigers and Lions going down in spectacular fashion adding on top of it.
Enough obsessing over a team that will be demolished next week and next year. They don't deserve the attention we are all giving them. Remember this quote?: "The pride comes before the fall." And this one?: "Live by the sword, die by the sword."
The Michigan State game is over.
Lets take our cue from someone who actually had to LIVE through the Michigan State game and refocus our attentions:
Bring it on Boliermakers.
HOKE > HOPE
MSU just released some tickets for $75/piece. I got 3 together at the 20 yard line at 7:37pm, so if you were considering going to help the ratio, go do it!
LINK , pretty simple to order, just click the Michigan link.
Brian's TWIS will not be skimpy on suffering that's for sure.
Take it all in here. Remember to sip it, savour it, like a fine wine. May it last forever and ever and ever.
So I was just going over my sports schedule this weekend and noticed this:
Michigan Football: 7pm EST
Detroit Tigers: 8pm EST
Detroit Red Wings: 9pm EST
Really? We have to have all three teams play at the same time?
I understand Michigan sets its schedule before either the Wings or Tigers and the Wings have to play an evening game after playing the night before, so why can't the Tigers play at 3:30pm? Anyone else frustrated with the scheduling?

Bollman (let's refer to his offense 'Walrusball' going forward) has now produced two games where the Buckeyes failed to score more than seven points. He is on his way to becoming known nationally as the Greg Robinson of offensive coordinators for 2011. All he needs is a little stuffed Brutus to sick on JB Shugarts' neck every time he does what JB Shugarts always seems to do.
