there would have to be some to wash away
Besides immensely enjoying Minnesota's kick-ass defensive effort and the poise of a third- string quarterback, I noted, as the other two of you who were watching probably did, the halftime comments on Harbaugh as a hot commodity in the NFL. The talk, stated somewhat strongly, has The 49ers as the object of speculation.
It has occurred to me throughout the discussion of Rodriguez' future that Harbaugh is probably more inclined to join his kin in the professional ranks, rather than make an upward movement to Michigan. His ambitions appear to be just that much stronger. It could even be that the expectations in San Francisco would be more manageable than here in Ann Arbor, and that it is a perfect time to plunge into the NFL world.
Jonathan Goodwin, the New Orleans center who played for UMich in the late '90s, gets some praise here:
The Big Ten starts off the bowl season with Iowa's win! 1-0
DAYS UNTIL MARVIN ROBINSON EXPLAINS HOW HE TAINTED MSU!
[edit: I have no clue who marvin adams is, +1 for the catch]
Akers kick is short. 7-7 Minny vs. Philly
So our school colors are maize and blue, right? I found it interesting that when Rich Rod became the UM head football coach that the colors and uniforms were quite similar to those of WVU. The tradition of Michigan football has dictated that our uniforms remain loyal to the university colors.
But whoa, then Nike entered the picture and now Oregon (The University of, University of or whatever of anything of whatever) has something approximating 300 different football uniforms. WTF? WTF Phil Knight's influence on Ducks' ball?
So now Nike is the official sponsor of WVA and the blue mountain school seems have almost as many football uniforms as Oregon. They are wearing some uniforms in tonight's whatever bowl that appear to be colored white, black and silver, with just a touch of blue/yellow on the numbers. Is this Slut University Sports?
Then there is Notre Dame: the colors are dark blue and gold, but oh shit when the Domers really really need a victory before the old alumni crap their pants they wear green and some form of gold. This is yet another slut college.
Well then we have to mention Sparty University with Nike uniforms that are as goofy as are their academic/social/criminal standards. Just how many variations of shit green and white can one pathetic just above community college university have?
Maybe our last couple of years sucked, but we have the integrity of maintaining our colors and essentailly the same uniforms for the past 100 years.
