chance of bowl: 13.6%
Paterno family to conduct their own independent review of the independent review conducted by PSU.
Just when I thought this story couldn't get any uglier, it does. In other news, the Paterno family is also vowing to find the real killer in the OJ Simpson murder trial.
So Zoltan Mesko has decided to take a break from ruling everything in existence, and has decided to vacation in Jamaica for a little bit. With who you might ask?
Oh just these lovely ladies...
From his Twitter:
No this probably isn't very topic worthy, but I figured with all of the PSU stuff we could use a little positive news regarding something Michigan
If you were planning on attending the football game at Purdue this year on 10/6/12, single game tickets went on-sale today through the Purdue ticket office. I tend to purchase my road tickets from the opponents website because in the past I've had better luck with seat location. The only unfortunate thing is that I am then usually stuck right in the middle sitting with the opponents fans instead of Michigan fans unless its at Northwestern where the majority of the stadium seems to be Michigan fans. Just thought I would pass this along for anyone who was interested in attending this game. Below is the link that I used to purchase the tickets. I was able to get tickets on the 50 yard line about 40 rows up. I think in the past I recall that the Michigan allotment was in one of the lower corners of the stadium closer to the goal line. Also I believe there was a section typically in the south endzone.
It's an insider only story, but the first person they list for players that stood out is Zak Irvin.
"He is starting to separate himself from everybody else and may be the best overall player at the adidas Invitational"
I know we are all excited about the five recruits that just stepped foot on campus, but sounds like we will be equally excited about the class of 2013 as well. Derrick Walton, Zak Irvin, and Mark Donnal seem to move up the rankings every time they update them. While we are still unsure whether Austin Hatch will be able to play, his presence alone should provide motivation.
I know I said my next video would be Michigan vs san diego state 2004, but I couldn't wait to get this one up. This is the infamous 10-10 tie from 1973. Michigan was screwed over by the big ten athletic directors who voted for ohio to the Rose Bowl.
ohio only attempted ONE pass the entire game, in the 4th quarter, which was intercepted by Michigan.
I personally am a huge advocate for Michigan recognizing and claiming 1973 as national championship. They have been recognized as national champions by the National Championship Foundation, but the university doesn't claim the title. Hopefully Dave Brandon does the right thing, and claims it.
Per the below ESPN article the Paterno statue at PSU is going to stay, for now. Personally, I think that is a huge mistake. I have a lot of family that are big PSU fans and I understand the love for the guy. But, I think the Trustees (ironic name in this case) is in for a bit of a shock when they realize that every televised game is going to start with them showing the statue and talking about what Joe did, or did not do. Essentially, every time your University is put on TV it is going to be shown how they still praise a guy who at the very least enabled a child molester. Yeah, that is just the way I would want my University represented.
