Mason NEEDS this, Pistons, after all you've put him through
On the way home Valenti and Foster were doing the usual baiting Michigan fans into calling up since there are no ratings in talking MSU football.
The premise was would you root for MSU to help Mich get to the BCS? I don't care about that but based on all the diaries posted on here and the callers it does appear that a lot of fans do want to go to the BCS.
My question is why? Bowls hold very little interest for me. The only bowls that I find compelling are against top teams. I would much rather test ourselves against Arkansas than play Houston. If the BCS bid meant we were guaranteed to play Oklahoma, Oklahoma or Stanford than I would be fine with it, but Houston? Who wants that?
If you are not going to the game the only thing that matters about the bowl game is bragging rights and entertainment. Michigan does not need publicity. Come on it's Michigan! So I don't but that argument to go to the BCS
Let's look at the other factors.
Gametime- Advantage Citrus. 1:00 start day off work vs a midnight finish on a work night
Opponent- Advantage Citrus. Arkansas vs Houston Not even close. Plus a win gives us Seee Ceee bragging rights and continues our historical domination of them.
So to those of you that want to go to the Sugar Bowl can you explain why?
Just thought I'd share this news. I found the results on his conference's website, but not on the OHSAA site. I am guessing they have not posted there yet, and may be waiting until after the state championship games are played this weekend. Caleb Stacey was selected as Honorable Mention All-Ohio as well. Link:
I am hoping there will be at least a few more players to add once I find the rest of the players selected.
EDIT: Caleb Stacey is Special Mention, not Honorable Mention.
I'm sure many of you saw the tweets & articles this morning regarding the Big10 championship game "seat-filler" Craigslist posting.
A few people on the internet got a little over zealous and posted a bunch of
info thoughts that weren't true.
Here is a rundown of what was going on with actual researched facts.
Dear Brian, aka Our Fearless Leader, aka OFL,
One tiny humble suggestion from a small voice in the wilderness. I am on your website, which might be the MOST PERFECT website ever created in the history of the Internets, which were created by Al Gore, about once ever five minutes. I started this compulsive habit either during the RR coaching search, or the JB coaching search, or The Process, or all of the above. But this website has become my #1 site on the Internets, which were created by Al Gore.
MY SUGGESTION: Maybe a page with a scoreboard of UM teams? Or a frame on the front page? Something with the most recent results, like the last week. Obv I know the football score the moment it happens; but I live not close to Michigan so getting UM hockey scores, or UM women's team scores (who knew, they were undefeated this year?), or gymnastics, or wrestling... I can't get those scores easily. I know MGoBlue has that sort of stuff, but frankly, that site makes my head dizzy.
Maybe users can populate it. Followers of each team could race to be the one to post the score, or you could deputize certain users to be in charge of the scores for certain teams. Someone already has the softball team covered, I think.
Just one little thing to make this website, already the BEST on the Internets, which were invented by Al Gore, even all the MORE perfect. Hmm? Even moar perfect? I think this has been pointed at (to?) by Brady Hoke.
And moar pics of the gymnasts, while you're at it.
Edit; I thought it would be obv., but the mis-spelling - SCOARBOARD - was an intentional play off of MOAR. And Brian can even use the misspelled name as the official title, if he wants, I promise I won't sue. (For a fee, that is.)
young guy. pretty tragic.
https://twitter.com/#!/masonkelley/status/141944717884661760 Steve Kelley is a columnist for the Seattle Times. Audacious hire for a program that was widely admired in the 80s and 90s for doing more with less. Leach rewrote the book on that at Texas Tech. Like him or not, the guy is winner.
The Pac 12 is a conference that will racking up some points. The rumors also have Houston's coach going to Arizona State or UCLA.
Sadly, my dream of IIlinois scaring the heck out of Ohio yearly over in the other division has been dealt a major setback.
