that is nice bonus change
This was playing as part of a Sprint ad on th UMhoops sidebar. I couldn't stop watching it so I thought I'd share it.
Finishing up a close game in the D2 bracket. Delta State is down 3 with 2:22 to go. Went for it on 4th and goal from the one. False start pushes it back 5. So they go for the FG. It's blocked. Wait... DELAY OF GAME! KO return goes to the offensive 45! Challenged! He fielded the ball on one knee, he's down, it's coming back to the defensive 30.
Coming up next BYU vs UTEP at the New Mexico Bowl. JCB has UTEP +12. Neither of these teams are very good, but I like the matchup to be closer than 12 as well. I'll take and the points, but I'll take BYU straight up.
GATOR: No. 21 Mississippi State (8-4) vs. Michigan (7-5)
With the vultures waiting to swoop in on embattled Wolverines coach Rich Rodriguez, the circumstances seem ripe for him to make AD Dave Brandon's decision more difficult. With five weeks' rest, star quarterback Denard Robinson will flash his September form with a 200/200-type day. The Bulldogs will do ample damage to Michigan's porous defense, but lack the comparable big-play guys.
Also of note:
- He has the Big Ten going 3-5 (4-5 if you include Nebraska).
- Michigan is the only Big Ten team predicted to win on New Year's Day (1-4 record)
- He picks Auburn to beat Oregon (boo, I hate Auburn)
SIAP...but back-to-back posts..whoa!
Anyway, It appears that all hope for MD DT Darian Cooper is not yet lost. Four days ago, it appeared as though Darian had eliminated Michigan, per a GBW report. However, Tom retweeted this from Cooper on Thursday:
DT Darian Cooper RT @SuperCooper93michigan coach just left my house
Intrigued, I did a little snooping. a dismayed fan asked him the following question over twitter:
@SuperCooper93 you really dropped Michigan???say it ain't so!!! Good luck whoever you choose, except when you play the maize and blue
Darian responded with the following:
@JRednick no I just want to know what happens with the coaching staff
So, it looks like, once the coaching situation is resolved, we could still have a very real shot with the kid.
A couple of days, I consolidated several reports about how badly Frost was tearing up the Shrine Bowl (between the best of the 2 Carolinas). Well, since then, Frost's play on the field has earned him the Number 1 spot on Rival's Top Players from the Shrine Bowl.
Frost is super-athletic and it became clearer than ever this week that his future is at linebacker at the next level despite his interest in playing wide receiver. He is so quick off the edge, is a ball of energy with great enthusiasm and hustle and he has the speed to run things down from the backside. In his drops, he gets good depth, reads the play well and he has good ball skills and instincts. Frost needs to fill out his frame and get stronger, especially in his lower body, but as a blitzing outside linebacker he fits the mold of a disrupter at the next level. He also has the potential to cover tight ends and slot receivers in certain packages because of his athleticism and he is a natural leader and the kind of player that brings a contagious enthusiasm to the field.
So what kind of players did he compete with for this spot? 5* Jadeveon Clowney sat out most of the week, but players like:
4* OT Brandon Shell, 4* LB Stephone Anthony (Both 5* on Scout), 4* LB Lateek Townsend, 4* WR Charone Peake (Also a 5* on Scout), 4* DT Phillip Dukes, ND Commit DE Ben Councell, 4* QB Marquise Williams, 4* Devonte Brown
Just to name a few...
