I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
After reading almost every post on the game over the weekend, and seeing the big disparity between those who thought it was great game despite the loss and those who thought it was a terrible game because of the loss, I started wondering if there was a difference between parents and non-parents, especially parents with kids who play sports.
I thought it was a great game and that there's a lot to be learned from the experience. I still feel positive towards the experience, and even though I now wish we had run a different play for the 2 point conversion, I'm not letting that color my whole sense of the game.
I'm a parent of two kids who play sports, and have seen my share of heartbreak through their eyes, plenty of crying, plenty of "I'm never playing again," and have had to pick them up off the ground after playoff games that could have been won if only.....
Anyone else think they're great?
The Big Ten Network will be announcing the Big Ten’s All-Conference selections tomorrow at 5:00 PM.
It might be hard for any Michigan players other than Blake Countess (who tied for the Big Ten lead in interceptions) and Jeremy Gallon (second in the Big Ten in receptions, yards per reception and yards per game; third in touchdown receptions and average receiving yards per game) to make the first team; but I’d guess that Taylor Lewan will get consideration for the second team if he's not considered for the first team, and that Devin Gardner (seoond best QB Rating in the Big Ten behind Braxton Miller), Devin Funchess, James Ross III, Frank Clark, Desmond Morgan, Brendan Gibbons and Raymon Taylor will get consideration for honorable mention.
Listening to the phone interview provides some depth into the factors weighing on Brandon and Hoke in considering Borges. Most notably, the common sensical concern any high profile OC would have in coming into an environment with increasingly unhappy fans, where there is the potential for a clean coaching sweep in a year or two.
This helps provide some insight as to the benefits born from Brandon's public display of support for Hoke, in helping the program not only hold high profile recruits, but also provide more comfort to potential replacement OCs in the event we go in that direction.
One major difference re timing - Florida's season is over, Michigan's still have a month. Florida's travails and misadventures in managing this OC change can provide fans a glimpse of what we might be facing come January, again, again, if we go the route of firing my lovely avatar.
