The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.
I read about this plane crash near South Bend earlier, but they announced the names of the dead and injured today.
Sadly, one of the dead passengers was Steve Davis, star wishbone quarterback for the Oklahoma Sooners 1975 team that played Michigan in the 1976 Orange Bowl. Davis also performed sideline reporting for ABC college football, including one with Bo Schembechler (don't remember the game) as the teams went in before half-time.
You can catch the full footage of the 1976 Orange Bowl on youtube, a game famous Michigan's all-white uniforms. Oklahoma won the game 14-6.
Condolences to Mr. Davis' family and OU. I'm sure a little No. 5 may be on the Sooners' helmets this fall.
Sup. Early enrollees have numbers and listed heights/weights.
I'll have a post up tomorrow a.m. with the uninteresting interesting things.
For a while now, I've thought of ways to make the "Depth Chart by Class" and "Unofficial Two-Deep" more user friendly. I thought about perhaps adding certain stats about the players, like their height or weight for example. However, I didn't know how to ask: should we just make a very long table with the players' measureables, or should we have a side-table? Anyways, I think this is something which would help a lot of us out, giving us some addititonal information on the players, and consolidating that information into a quick view for everyone. The only problem has been: how to do so?
But I think Ace (or Brian, or Seth, not sure whose idea this was) came up with a solution. We could use those "Black links" from the front page (where you scroll over the link, and it shows the etymology of the word/phrase) with the players' data. That is, we could have the "Two-Deep" and "Depth Chart by Class" filled with this information, which we could instantly access or leave, depending on our wishes. Simply scroll over a player's name, and you'll get his experience (for the two deep), or measurements (for both).
Some ideas on which information to provide:
1.) Experience (for the "Two-Deep")
3.) Strengths (EG, for RB: power, or speed)
4.) Possible position switches
I'm sure this isn't a full list of what the users want, and someone will come up with a correction. Also, this might be premature, as we're about to engage in the tourney for B-Ball. Nevertheless, I think it's a good offseason task for the mods, IF people want it. This might just be a pet-peeve of mine, or it might be something which could easily be added by the mods to make this site better. . . I'm not sure. So, what say you, MGoCommunity?
