this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
1- Michigan 2316
2- Texas 2035
3- Bama 1906
7- OHIO 1667
15 - PSU 882
29 - MSU 555
31 - Wiconsin 553
If you go to the team rankings on Rivals 2012 still comes up but 2013 is in the dropdown menu. Great to see us on top by a pretty good margin. Go Blue!
I can't wait for MSU's pro combats this year. Way better than last years.
Gotta love this guy's moxie, and the nastiness of this team. I'm liking what I'm seeing...
Didn't see this on the board yet. Cowherd talks about Buckeyes sense of humor. Or lack there of.
Can someone embed?
So what with Seth's front page post on Next-Woodsons and some previous board chatter about legend jerseys, combined with MGoUser Samsoccer7's meeting Charles, and claiming that Charles says he wasn't supposed to talk about legend jerseys (http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/charles-woodsons-twentyfour-wines-chicago-launch-sunda)... my money is on Charles getting a legend jersey patch this year.
But when? For Desmond it was easy. ND, at night, broadcast by Desmond's employer on national TV, a week he was going to be in Ann Arbor anyway. Now Charles? He's employed by the Green Bay Packers and his travel schedule in the fall isn't friendly. That said, I assume they're going to do it during a home game, of which we only have 6, so here are the options:
Sat Sept 8 - Air Force: NO, Woodson and the Packers start their NFL season the next day in San Fransisco.
Sat Sept 15th - UMass: POSSIBLE, Packers and Bears play on Thursday Night the 13th, so Charles has the actual weekend off. Kind of a let down game though.
Sat Oct 13th - Illinois: POSSIBLE, Packers are in Houston for SNF. Could Charles attend an afternoon game at the Big House on Saturday and then head to Houston for a night game on Sunday?
Sat Oct 20th - MSU: DOUBT IT, Charles and the Pack play at the Rams at 1pm the next day, I doubt he'd have the flexibility to be away on a Saturday before an early game. But, it is only going DTW to St Louis... so I won't say a 100% no.
Sat Nov 10th - Northwestern: PROBABLE, This is the Packers' bye week. Less than ideal opponent, but still a good chance. Most NFLers visit on their bye weeks anyway.
Sat Nov 17th - Iowa: PROBABLE, Pack vs. Lions on Sunday the 18th. He'll be in the area anyway for a game, last game of the year, bigger name opponent than Northwestern.
I'll have to ask Jamiemac for the odds, but were I a betting man, I'd guess the Iowa game.

Hopefully Denard can join the ranks of Desmond Howard and Charles Woodson while leading us to a Big Ten Title.
