I've got my tickets, but aside from the game, I'm not looking forward to New Years in jacksonville. Anyone live there or spend time there...and knows what's going on for the holiday?
Not sure if Pete Carroll would even consider Michigan but....
Let's say Rich Rod gets another year, then perhaps gets fired. Pete Carroll will be a bottom feeder in the NFC West next year and anyone with a clue knows he left because of the USC scandal. Carroll gets canned, and wishes to return back to college and Michigan could possibly be the highest profile job with the most recruiting power nest season.
According to the Smoking Musket (WVU blog) Bill Stewart will resign after the Mountaineers' bowl game. I'd seen several reports throughout the day that hinted at this, but this is the first concrete statment about the situation.
Oklahoma St OC Dana Holgorsen is expected to replace Steward. Interestingly enough, Holgorsen had recently declined to seek the Pittsburgh opening.
As if the logo and the unbelievably
bad ridiculous names for the future trophies weren't enough, the Big 10 offices chose "Legends" and "Leaders" as names for our divisions in football. What I want to know is, what names could they have discussed which later were deemed to be worse than Leaders and Legends? It is seriously difficult to think of names that could be worse, but I'll take a stab at some that I am glad they did not chose, please feel free to add....
Zambonies/Slot Ninjas (we'd need a division of our own)
I just wanted to say that I was happy to see Mike Martin be such a nice guy. It's refreshing to see our football players interact with the fans in such a positive manner. During the Big Chill, Mike Marin was in Section 9 and someone behind me recognized him and called out "Mike Martin!" Mike turned around and said hi and glad handed for a little bit before headed over to his seat.
Every time Mike went up and left to get food or something, the same fan would always shout out "Mike Martin." Now, it seems that would get annoying a little bit, but Mike took it all in stride and always acknowledged the guy with a smile.
While MIke was making his way up at the end of the game, the guy behind me's little brother was wondering if Mike would take a picture with him. He was nervous when Mike walked by but Mike saw him and said hi and then the kid asked to take a picture and Mike said "of course" and took a picture and shook the kid's hand.
Now, is this something crazy that would have never happened? No, but it's refreshing to see our players be good guys to the fans that recognize him (and who may or may not have been annoying him). I like seeing that from our players.
This probably didn't deserve it's own forum topic, but still - great to see.
I hope he dominates him some Relf on January 1st.
A while back, an ESPN got us all excited at the prospect of having a former 5* safety in the fold. Well, you can all kiss that goodbye, it now appears as though former Florida DB Jonathan Dowling is headed off to W. Kentucky. For those of you wondering how much his dismissal from the Florida program affected him/reason why he left...
“I don’t do everything right,” Dowling said. “I’m not an angel, but I feel like they could’ve done a lot more things to help me instead of trying to break me down. With (Heater), it was never, ‘Good play; you did good,’ it was always, ‘Why the ‘F’ did you do this or why did you do that?’ There were never positive things coming from him. For the first time in my life, that affected me and made me not like football. I had to get away from that.”
Take whoever's side you'd like, this kid is officially off the board. Good luck with the .....Hilltoppers, kid.
