somehow we're only 124th
As per Sam Webb, Terrence Talbot leaving program:
I'm told that #Michigan Jr. CB Terrence Talbott has decided to leave the program.
Sam then adds the following:
That should answer the questions about why I mentioned two scholarships remaining yesterday as opposed to one
days until we see someone from Michgian play like Jarrett Irons and destroy Bama!
CBSsports reports: 3 Big Ten QBs named to Manning Award watch list
Denard Robinson is one of three B1G players added to the watch list for the Manning Award. The other B1G QBs announced are Iowa's James Vandenberg and Nebraska's Taylor Martinez.
I found it a bit interesting that, unlike the O'Brien Award, Braxton Miller was not included. This award includes bowl performance but doubt their bowl ban figures in, as Matt Barkley was a finalist last year.
RT @BrOoKyLn_boii27: The Ohio State Coaching Staff has decided to go in another direction.
I know there is a new story everyday about PSU and all that is going on, but the interview that O'Brien did with ESPN is worth the 15 min. I know part of the job description for big time coaches is being a salesman, but I was pretty impressed with him. This was really the first time I've heard the guy for any length of time and he looks to be the real deal.
Wisconsin and Purdue have agreed to move their 2013 game up to the 4th week of the season (the traditional, "every Big 10 team plays a snacky cake" week), opening the Big 10 season a week earlier than the rest of the conference. A good move in what is typically an atrocious week of Big 10 football (though we play ND in the 4th week this year). It also allows Wisconsin to add a November game against BYU.
On another note, man, does the potential decline of Penn State make Wisconsin's 2013 schedule easy.
Aug. 31 Massachusetts
Sept. 7 Tennessee Tech
Sept. 14 at Arizona State
Sept. 21 Purdue
Sept. 28 at Ohio State
Oct. 5 Open
Oct. 12 Northwestern
Oct. 19 at Illinois
Oct. 26 Open
Nov. 2 at Iowa
Nov. 9 BYU
Nov. 16 Indiana
Nov. 23 at Minnesota
Nov. 30 Penn State
Obviously, they'll be underdogs at OSU and maybe Iowa, but they'll likely be at least touchdown favorites in every other game, missing Nebraska, MSU, and UM. This schedule here makes the need for a 9 game conference schedule plainly evident.
