...talks about how UConn hasn't been in contact and how they're out. (HT: UMHoops)
I know there are a lot of other issues involved with Cicero releasing info and client confidentiality but, still... The board is saying he should have his license suspended for 6 months - hopefully he learns the Herbie lesson and realize that if you in any way condone anything negative about Central Akron State you will be punished/harrased.
This afternoon, as our children were playing in a park, I brought up to my cousin the story about Urban Meyer's recent press conference in which he plans to refer to Michigan as "That Team Up North". My cousin is a journalist, formerly a full-fledged sports journalist, and he currently writes for a major South Florida paper. He is a UFlorida graduate, and he actually broke the Urban Meyer Utah-to-Florida story for the Palm Beach Post. There is some discussion whether it was them or the Florida Times-Union who broke the story first. Nevertheless, he was able to break the story because he had become close to the Meyer family during the preceding month of his arrival at Florida, often dining with them in their home. He broke the story because Urban Meyer's wife called my cousin directly to tell him.
My cousin, as someone who sees Meyer as a liar (b/c he was also intimately involved in the media coverage during his tenure at Florida), says that the name change of a rival is a common theme for Meyer. He says that Meyer did it at Bowling Green, at Utah, and then again at Florida. Apparently Meyer chose FSU as the rival-du-jour, and just designated them with just a crimson bar on their schedule. So he sees this as Meyer stirring the pot of a rivalry, which he says is his MO. However, he doesn't believe he called a press conference at any of his other stops. Also, he thinks (as most of us do) that Meyer saw the writing on the wall with Saban/Alabama dominating the next several years of the SEC and bolted.
I just thought this information, from someone who closely followed Meyer since his leaving Utah, would be interesting to the Board.
I know wrestling isn't a huge point of topic on the board but it is another chance to BEAT OHIO. Tonight #12 Michigan goes to Columbus to take on #6 Ranked Ohio State.
So before watching the Hockey team beat Miami (NTM) you can watch the wrestling team.
Key Matches: Michigan in Bold
133 lb. weight class #16 Zach Stevens (Sr) vs #3 Logan Stieber (Fr)
141 lb. weight class #1 Kellen Russell (Sr) vs #6 Hunter Stieber (Fr)
149 lb. weight class #5 Eric Grajales (So) vs #14 Cam Tessari (Fr)
174 lb. weight class #6 Justin Zeerip (Sr) vs #7 Nick Heflin (So)
285 lb. weight class #8 Ben Apland (Jr) vs #21 Peter Capone (So)
Other weight classes feature good matchups as both teams have roughly the same amount of top 25 ranked wreslers.
If I missed anything or need to amend anything let me know!
Anyone know what's become of ESPN's FOI petition to see all the Tatgate-related emails?
Curious minds would like to know.
St. Tress sold his house to Bobby Layman (yes he of Clarett Scandal Laymans), a car dealer, in Columbus this week. Bobby said it was for his mother...
I wonder if Geno approved the sale so Urbz could get some rides for his oversignees.
So, with the basketball game coming up on Tuesday against MSU, I was chatting with some co-workers who happen to be State fans/grads about rivalries. We all know who the big dog is for us in football at least: Ohio. My question to you all is does this rivalry translate to the other sport's or is there another more meaningful game on the calendar?
To me, I want to beat Ohio in everything obviously, but I think MSU might be the bigger rival when it comes to basketball and hockey, and I claim to know nothing about our baseball or other sports' rivals. Agree? Disagree? Blasphemy? Discuss.
