I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
The van (dread-mobile) is decorated with full length dreads. On our way to AA early in the am. Perfect weather for a football game. Brother's here from Iowa with my nephew. One son flew in successfully from Frisco (UM alum). Younger son who plays HS football is on board. Uncle Bennie's bringin' the booze.
Double maize and blue grill with brisket, chicken, ribs, cheesy potatoes, salad, apple and peach pies. "Ya-ger" bombs. Bullhorns. Twin M tents. Footballs.
Denard on target. Donald Duck and Batman in the groove............
Here's to a V tomorrow!! Go Blue
Welcome to the Big Ten, Nebraska! We're worth every penny!
In an otherwise "meh" article, Rival's Larry Lage takes the opportunity to take a poke at Rodrigeuz.
"Rodriguez, who’s in his third pressure-packed year with the Wolverines, hopes he has enough time to assemble the talent he wants playing for college football’s winningest program." (I inserted bold font)
In fairness, it does eventually compare Ferentz's less than stellar start and Iowa's patience with him to Rodriguez.
I thought that this was all resolved, but it just popped up 15 minutes ago.
Deja Vu - again?
I posted this in Tom VH's diary post on visitors for this weekend but since it is buried in the diary section I thought I would post it here as well to quiet down some of you who are asking for more defensive recruits. Scout is reporting that Ohio DE/TE Austin Traylor will also be in attendance this weekend for an official visit. He is a three star #77 DE in the country according to scout (http://michigan.scout.com/a.z?s=162&p=8&c=1&nid=4737899) and for rivals he is a four star (#214 in the country), 9th ranked weak side DE, and top 10 in Ohio (http://rivals.yahoo.com/stanford/football/recruiting/player-Austin-Traylor-106929)
The Ohio State athletics department just released a statement regarding the Sports Illustrated story earlier this week, in which former agent Josh Luchs said he met with former OSU receiver Santonio Holmes in 2005 and Holmes told Luchs he had been taking money from an agent.
"During an interview on Wednesday, Holmes stated he never received money or benefits from an agent," the statement said. "(OSU) has contacted the Agents, Gambling and Amateurism staff at the NCAA, and the NCAA has stated it does not intend to investigate anything further related to the allegations in the Sports Illustrated article based on the information that has been reported.
"The Ohio State University considers this matter closed."
Well....afterall he did state he never recieved monies or benefits so what else could they possibly do?????? Unfreaking real.
