So, apparently, ESPN asked officials from the different conferences to give an analysis on the teams playing in the BCS games. You can find the article here (disclaimer: Insider needed). It was refreshingly candid (assuming due to anonymity) and the ACC official was very blunt in his assessment of how Michigan stacks up against VaTech.
''Clearly, they struggle with dynamic quarterbacks. Clemson exposed that twice. If Michigan lets Robinson do his thing, it could mean big problems very early. And what else did Clemson teach us? If you stretch a lead, Tech isn't the kind of team that can come back. They need to keep it close and let Wilson do his thing. I don't see that happening."
Heck of an endorsement for the Wolverines coming from a guy who's seen this Hokie team often. I can't wait for Tuesday!
The D. Arnett situation, in a write-up by Dr. Saturday, made the very first post of my Yahoo! homepage. This is probably targeted so it may not occur for everyone, but it's definitely going to hit a wider audience than most transfer requests. This can only be good, and may eventually lead to some sort of balanced rule-making across the board. I do believe UT will eventually let him go to any non-SEC or scheduled OOC opponent, especially if the pressure mounts.
Here's a link to the actual article:
Let's just say The Notorious C.O.N.E. has nothing to worry about.
A 7-5 Iowa team gets to tangle with a 9-3 Oklahoma team.
As much as I love the B1G since my alma mater is in it, I must say that this game should not look terribly promising for Hawkeye fans. I dare say that Oklahoma holds answers to football questions that you never asked.
I hate to say it, but I went Oklahoma in the pool. I just don't see the Hawkeyes pulling this one out unless there is a case of the trots that has been going around of late.
ESPN at 10 PM EST. Be there.
The Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl is going to start soon. Hopefully we can get through it and not have evil January flashbacks of Mississippi State, or the idea that Wake Forest's coach was a candidate for the Michigan job. Double brrrrrrrrrr!
I'm sure LSAClassof2000 will have your full write up shortly. 2 down, 2 to go.
