After much speculation and many rumors that he would go to the Jets, Nnamdi Asomguha has signed with the Philadelphia Eagles on a 5 year/60 million dollar deal. This helps sure up one of the Eagles biggest problems from last year, the secondary, and makes them an immediate Super Bowl favorite. This is the second time that a Phili sports team has swooped in and grabbed the best free agent away from a NY team's grasp (Cliff Lee), and now makes Asomguha hated to almost all NY football fans.
This from ESPN's B1G Blogger Adam Rittenberg about Greg Mattison's expectations and interactions with underperforming Will Campell.
One interesting thing about Mattison's ability to motivate by calling out.
"He's talking right to Will. Even during condition, he would call him out and say, 'We need you. We need a 3-technique. If you can't do it, you just let me know. No hard feelings.'"
Here's hoping that Mattison can put that spark into Will, IMO this will be his final legitamte chance to live up to the hype that he came in with. Thoughts?
Edit:fixed my title.
Really bored on a Friday, and somewhat inspired by that epic Denard face when asked who would win in a race between he and Taylor Martinez. So I made an old NES version-style GIF, complete with glitches and all (actually accidental, but too lazy to go back and fix).
Happy weekend and here's to the BBBQ (the extra "B" is for BYOBB (that extra "B" is a typo)).
Dantonio defends his comments; is generally douchey.
How does Nebraska-Iowa become "The Heroes Game"? I guess Chilren of the Corn has a copyright. Since this seems so retarded and completely made up, I wonder if this tweet from CBS is not completely accurate http://twitter.com/#!/McMurphyCBS/statuses/96915912682250241.
If these guys can claim Heroes, I say it is time to reopen the naming for other trophy games in the conference. Not sure if you have any better ideas, but there has to be a few marketing majors on the board..
