i like 'em both
According to Dennis Dodd over at CBS (came across my twitter feed, haven't seen a link yet), the ACC confirms that the league controls broadcast rights in new Orange Bowl Deal and they plan to take it to market. Dodd claims that this is a game changer, and it is.
In terms of the angst over how the bowls just have these guys-in-suits who make all this non-profit cash and embezzle the hell out of it (see the Fiesta Bowl)... they're getting somewhat squeezed out in the new playoff system. If the conferences start controlling the TV money, that's a bunch of millions that will go directly to the conferences rather than the bowls/guys in suits.
With the B1G/Pac12 collaboration, I wouldn't be surprised to see the Rose Bowl TV $$ heading straight for the conferences soon.
Condolences to his friends and family.
Well the board is slow and there really has not been much talk about football lately so wanted to hear some thoughts about the upcoming season.
What will be the Benchmark for a great season as far as wins are concerned? 9 wins is what most believe to be considered a successful year for Michigan.
An 11 win season will be tough this year considering the strength of schedule. With the potential to play 5 top 25 teams and 4 of those away from Ann Arbor, losses may be all but inevitable. What do you believe to be the key factors in a successful season? How would you rank the importance of goals listed below.
1) Win B1G championship
2) Beat sparty
3) Beat Ohio
4) Beat Alabama
5) Beat Notre Dame
I believe that regardless of wins/losses to our rivals and Alabama, a B1G championship has to be the big goal. I feel that sparty is a must win game over all of the other games because of obvious implications and protecting our home-field. Beating Ohio in Urban's first year would be huge as well. Would you be happy if we lost to Sparty, OSU, and Alabama and still won the big ten?
This isn't the worst interview you've ever read, nor is it the best. It's right smack dab in the middle. Andrew interviewed incoming freshman offensive tackle Erik Magnuson about why he came to Michigan, his unicycle, his future position, and more.
also, how old is this video?!?!
So there were two guys that looked really good to me (completely untrained eye) but after learning about them I think they are somewhat under recruited. This first guy has a quite a few offers but only a few bigtime programs.
This guy was snatching passes out the air like a pro..he was on Team Tampa and had a good supporting cast but tore it up in pool play and in the early rounds of the tourny..Tampa got up early on Max Ex and they didn't really use him in the final but earlier he was a beast.
This guy has 1 offer (Middle Tenn State), this is just stupid. This guy is a ball snatching TE with decent speed and was snatching balls over and through the defense all week end. Played on the Tenn team from Knoxville.
I have passed on this info to Michigan recruiting (Mr. Vollmer), in case they are interested.
