a terrible blight on our fine country
ESPN has listed Phil Steele's 2013 Big 10 bowl predictions here:
Surprisingly, that is to say not surprisingly, Steele is bullish on OSU (predicting they will play for it all against Bama) and bearish on UM (predicting we will play Ole Miss in the Gator). Well, I guess the good news is that we will get to pound on the Rebs and show Treadwell what a big mistake he made buying into Freeze's BS.
How big a difference will Reggie Bush make to the Lions' offensive efficiency? They gained a lot of yards last year but obviously didn't score enough touchdowns.
Will the retooled bigger defensive line with our linebacking corp be the right pieces to make the wide 9 work or will they get gashed?
Will they finally be able to field a decent squad of defensive backs?
Let's set the over/under at 8.5 wins.
And finally, will the Detroit Lions make the playoffs in 2013? (cue the Jim Mora clip)
Doing some searching through the webs on how former Michigan players are doing and lo and behold, our own Terrance Taylor is having a pretty good year in the Arena Football League.
He plays for the Spokane Shock in Spokane, Washington. Taylor is 3rd on the team in sacks with 4, 2 punts blocked (!) and 6 total tackles with 10 assists. He has 11 starts on the year.
The Spokane Shock are tied for first in the National West Division with the Arizona Rattlers at 4-2-0.
