At press time, Harbaugh had sent Michigan’s athletic department an envelope containing a heavily annotated seating chart, a list of the 63,000 seat views he had found unsatisfactory, and a glowing 70-page report on section 25, row 12, seat 9, which he claimed is “exactly what the great sport of football is all about.”
As the article notes, Jeff Hecklinski is their passing game coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Pretty cool that Roundtree is starting off a coaching career this young.
Reports of Mark May's demise were premature. He has now moved to the ABC studio coverage with John Saunders. The new ESPN Saturday studio trio is Adnan Virk, Danny Kanell, and Joey Galloway. That is terrible. College Football Final will now be hosted by Joe Tessitore, but they have not named any replacements yet for May and Lou Holtz. As reported earlier, Rece Davis now takes over College Gameday replacing Chris Fowler.
adidas has really been pushing the fishnet-look on their jerseys.
This is the absolute worst.
It's been on the news (I don't see it here yet) that Brady has offered up a settlement. No response from Goodell's camp, not that I would expect a statement.
Given that there is a threat for legal action should the suspension not be reduced, I would think this "olive branch" might be accepted.
Given the rules on the books regarding penalties for this infraction ($25,000 fine to the team), Tom should not be fined/suspended.
What say you?
In an article by Frank Schwab at Yahoo sports, it looks like the other NFL owners are pushing Goodell to maintain Brady's original suspension. The first line of his article says it all:
"Jealousy can cause people to act irrationally, and that apparently holds true for NFL owners as well."
Some stories never die. I am glad mainstream sports writers are also sick of this kangaroo court.
Edit: I probably should also link to the original ESPN article, but try to avoid sending traffic to the Worldwide Leader whenever possible.
