there would have to be some to wash away

1. Darryl Stonum
2. Kenny Demens
3. Courtney Avery
4. Will Campbell
5. Stephen Hopkins
6. Marvin Robinson

15. Cam Gordon
16. Mike Martin
17. Mike Jones
18. Quinton Washington
19. Martavious Odoms
20. Mike Shaw
Not to be outdone by the fablous David Cone, Jack Kennedy and Joe Reynolds (from the amazing Rochester Adams High School) have thrown down a rap themselves. Enjoy.

Remember back in December when Mark Cuban talked about challenging the BCS?
He's a man of his word. Introducing....Radical Football
The formation of the company was first reported by The San Diego Union-Tribune. Radical Football has at least one employee: Brett Morris, 40, who has experience as president of a national marketing agency focused on sporting goods and as Notre Dame's promotions coordinator.
"[Cuban is] real engaged in this," Morris told the Union-Tribune while in San Diego representing Radical Football as a judge in a contest for college students who pitched plans to change the football postseason.
Cuban's basic idea is to keep the bowl system but make it more profitable for programs to qualify for his playoffs than to participate in a bowl.
"Put $500 million in the bank and go to all the schools and pay them money as an option," Cuban told ESPNDallas.com in December. "Say, 'Look, I'm going to give you X amount every five years. In exchange, you say if you're picked for the playoff system, you'll go.'"
Georgia DE Jordan Jenkins (6'3", 233 lbs) was offered by Michigan today. Defensive line coach Jerry Montgomery called him and offered him. Jenkins has 13 offers now including Alabama, Auburn, Florida, and South Carolina. I'll have his quotes in the Weekly Update on Monday.
God bless Vada Murray. Positive thoughts to him and his family!
So my housemate and I were having a conversation regarding the coaching change. I made it clear that i was a huge Rich Rod supporter, and wish he was still the head coach. My housemate stated that he couldn't wait until Hoke won 8 games this year, to show me that he was the right choice.
This is the exact attitude that I disagree with. I have 100% confidence that Rich would have won at least 8 games this year, followed by 9-10-11 win seasons every year after. With that said, now that Hoke is the coach, I obviously completely support him, and do indeed hope that he wins a NC here.
So my question is, what do we look for in this first year from Hoke in order to begin to evaluate his progress?
