I debated dropping this into the post I created yesterday with the flight tracker, but figured it is interesting enough to get its own post.
Good article about the inception of the idea behind the seahawks plane yesterday as well as how Paul Allen (Seahawks owner) one upped Boeing's CEO by getting the 12th man in space. Really good read about a bet between two really rich dudes and their creativity.
Don't see this posted here, although it apparently went up at ESPN yesterday. Goes to the question of whether this becomes a national story. Rittenberg says that Hoke will be facing many questions at signing day next Wednesday:
Among things Rittenberg reports that I didn't know was that the U found that Gibbons "engaged in unwanted or unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature, committed without valid consent, and that conduct was so severe as to create a hostile, offensive, or abusive environment."
The biggest question, according to Rittenberg, is when the athletic department became aware of this finding. Among others will undoubtedly be why Gibbons's absence from the bowl was attributed to a family issue.
This is Lemming's recruiting rankings by position for the 1995 class. I did not make this, rather it was unearthed from the depths of reddit. Also, I know not everyone thinks that Lemming is the best talent evaluator, but this is interesting nonetheless.
Michigan had quite the class in 1995: Brady was the #6 Pro-Style QB, Woodson was the #2 S, Streets was the #4 WR, Shea was the #9 TE, and Williams was the #3 DT among many other Michigan players.
Other players of note:
Moss was the #1 WR, which yeah.
Kevin Faulk, Ahman Green, and Shaun Alexander were all top 5 RBs, which also yeah.
Ricky Williams was the #2 FB.
Peter Warrick was the #1 WB.
Shane Lechler was the #20 Dual-Threat QB.
Jevon Kearse was the #3 S (!)
Remember today is the deadline to make your PSD contribution today...Bend over and take it from Dave Brandon.
This week's scouting report is on Detroit (MI) King linebacker Tyriq Thompson, and we all know he's the son of former Michigan safety Clarence Thompson. ESPN is silly if they think this kid can play safety, but I've come to expect that from ESPN. The Worldwide Leader always seems to be playing catch-up when it comes to recruiting.
We got the win but played very sloppily. If we play like that against Wisconsin/MSU etc. we won't come out with the W.
