The Indianopolis Star has an article on Purdue's chances of making it to the B1G championship game in Indy. At the end, there is an interesting quote from Purdue QB Caleb TerBush that seems to be perfectly made as bulletin board material for the Michigan locker room:
"We don't want to get caught up in looking ahead, and then you miss those games you should win," quarterback Caleb TerBush said. "We have to stay focused on the task ahead, and that's Michigan."
Now I don't think Michigan needs any extra incentive to play hard on Saturday; the poor play against ND and taking the first step toward winning the B1G should be enough. And I don't blame TerBush for showing confidence, either, but his sentiment does seem like a stupid thing to say to a reporter because it can so easily be construed as meaning he sees Michigan as a trap game, a game that Purdue should definitely win. Perhaps the only reason Purdue might not win is that they are looking ahead to prepare for better teams later in their schedule.
From the context it appears he's saying something different, talking about defending the home turf, being sure to play strong at home.
Or, maybe in TerBush's eyes Purdue really has arrived and is superior to Michigan.
http://espn.go.com/blog/ncfnation/post/_/id/6474/michigan-defensive-fron... Great article on the D-Line. Take a look at these two classic quotes:
"He has a lot of swagger as a quarterback, so we’re going to have to definitely get after him," Martin said. (refering to Jimmah) Anytime MM says he's gonna get after you, the prognosis is not good.
This next one is my favorite: Van Bergen, who served as Roh's mentor during camp, expects big things from Roh.
"I asked him before the game if he was ready, and he gave me the coldest look I’ve ever seen," Van Bergen said. "He proved to everybody that he’s ready to play this game as a freshman."
I can't wait to see how fired up these guys are gonna be come Saturday. Go Blue!

A little quote from Team America "World Police".
"America may be a big dick, and might sometimes screw the pussies, but only a dick can screw the assholes. And if America doesn’t screw the assholes, they’re gonna shit on everyone, the pussies and the dicks.”
Substitute these in there;
America = Michigan
Pussies = Mid-Majors
Assholes = Dantonio/Michigan State, Weis/Notre Dame, Tressel/Ohio State
I got a great laugh out of this quote...note the difference in mentality between WVU and Michigan. I'm glad this is over.
God bless them...but, GO BLUE!
"For a change, though, the football offseason now feels normal in West Virginia. Pat White is again the most popular man among Mountaineers fans. The talk surrounds the ceiling for running back Noel Devine, and what can be expected of a defense that lost so much from a year ago.
And there is Gilson, who has purged enough of this ugly winter, spring and summer to look with optimism toward the fall.
"You know, we've got two sellouts already," he said over the phone. "And some really good coaches. I think this could turn out to be a great year here."
