Mike Lantry, 1972
Maybe I will have to remain a Colts fan after all...:
Note 1: not marked OT because Tressel is on topic or the rules are wrong.
Note 2: not marked SIAP because, first, I checked, and second, I wouldn't be sorry. This is great.
Talk about an interesting event: The Kirk Herbstreit National Kickoff Classic is being played from Ohio Stadium on ESPN right now.
Glenville (OH) v. Camden County (GA) is the matchup. Obviously Glenville is a OSU pipeline and both teams have D1 players...
My first shot at a hype video. Anyone wanna do me a solid and embed?
We know all about Michigan's cool duds planned for the game on Saturday night:
Just a reminder that Notre Dame too will be sporting new football helmets with a shamrock on them, plus white jerseys with green stripes on the shoulders and green numerals:
Some nice history collected here on Notre Dame's affection with green in their football uniforms. They are considered lucky.
"Pink hearts, yellow moons, green clovers...and BLUE DIAMONDS!!!!"
An historical night all around from a football fashion perspective.
I just hope both teams play better than they'll look.
September 15, 1979: Notre Dame 12, Michigan 10
January 2, 1978: Notre Dame 38, Texas 10
Rivals is running a new feature this year titled "Conference Call" which is a review of the biggest surprises and disappointments from the previous weekend, conference by conference.
Their biggest disappointment (player) from the Big 10 is..........Denard?
BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT, PLAYER: Michigan QB Denard Robinson. The Wolverines won, which is all that really matters. But Robinson had pedestrian numbers against a mediocre MAC defense, throwing for 98 yards and no touchdowns and rushing eight times for 46 yards. True, the game was called with 1:27 left in the third quarter because of bad weather, cutting into his playing time. Still, his numbers weren't close to being on track with last season, when he averaged 130.9 yards rushing and 197.7 yards passing per game en route to being Big Ten MVP.
On a poisitve note, their biggest surprise (team) was Michigan's defense. So we have that going for us......which is nice.

During the annoucements letting the fans that the game will be "suspended" saturday at the Big House, the commentator told the fans that they could get their tickets reimbursed. He said it again after the second delay too. I was skeptical, no way they would lose all that money with 3 quarters of the game already played. Anyone know what he meant or hear anything about it?
First game at the Big House, I had a blast. Crazy seeing so many people in one place. The rain actaully made the atmosphere so much more fun IMO.
