somehow we're only 124th
In the wake of Meyer Mania, I need my Ohio schadenfreude fix. I checked the Ohio Supreme Court web site and there are a bunch of new documents regarding the case of ESPN vs Ohio. I am the layest of all laypersons, so I need my lawyer friends to help glean any pertinent information.
I wasn't encouraged by the Meyer press conference where he stated that Gee and Smith assured him no more NCAA penalties are coming. Everyone in Cbus is convinced the NCAA will accept Ohio's self imposed penalties. It is encouraging that everyone from Ohio involved in the process seems to have lied at some point, so why should I believe this. Keep fighting for me ESPN.
Denard B10 Passing (8 Games)
Compare this to Denard's Overall Passing Season:
Brian mentioned a few times that Denard's B10 Season was much better than his overall season so I wanted to look at the numbers. He was able to retain his yards/attempt while completing a higher percentage of passes. The improvements he made are impressive considering it was against B10 defenses (Minnesota not withstanding) and speaks to his better understanding of the passing scheme. Denard improved immensely in 2010 and in 2011 had to learn a new system. Its reasonable to expect continuity and increased understanding, not to mention his hard-work we all know will happen. Throw in the rushing yards and Denard in 2012 could produce a year we have never seen before.
Found this interesting from the Big Ten Blog. I remember Zach Boren was upset at our post-game grenade celebration. Then I was reading the ESPN Big Ten Blog's mailbag and apparently we have some hypocritical buckys.
Jeff from Harleysville, Pa., writes: Brian, I enjoyed Michigan's "grenade" celebration after finishing a strong season by breaking the streak against OSU. Can we expect any special celebrations from you after your fantasy and picks domination over Adam?
Brian Bennett: I found Ohio State's objection to that celebration amusing, since I saw the Buckeyes do that exact same routine late in one of their August practices. I can't pull that off by myself but I am working on my own victory dance for this weekend in Indianapolis. If you're there on Friday night, be on the lookout.
Big East action tonight at 8 PM.
It's either this or Kentucky vs. St. John's in hoops, if my digital cable is any indication. Pick a game. Discuss.
Just when I think I can't possibly have a lower opinion of PSU they go and lower it again. Penn State officials are fighting to retain privacy in the Sandusky case and are denying lawmakers requests for information to aid in the investigation. Instead of helping those trying to put Sandusky behind bars for life, Penn State is withholding information that could assist in the case against him. And the really sickening thing (to me anyways) is that it might work as Pennsylvania laws give special privacy privileges to universities not enjoyed by anyone else.
They make me sick.
