mesmerism! presidential assassinations! circuses on fire!
I enjoy Rittenberg's writing and I read nearly all of them. Today's piece was ranking the Big Ten Offensive Lines, and he gave Michigan a respectable 4th in the league.
But I enjoyed this part: "The line did an excellent job of protecting Denard Robinson in 2010, allowing a league-low 11 sacks."
While they did do a fine job, and while I certainly mean no disrespect towards our O-line, I just chuckle at the notion that it had less to do with Denard's dilithium feet than the achievements of our relatively young line. If we had a statue like Kirk Cousins under center, there likely would have been more sacks.
That is all - enjoy your Fridays.
I thought this was an interesting comment from an tOSU trustee and probably won't be well received in Columbus. I also think it doesn't reflect well upon their recently departed coach.
"Ohio State's football scandal exposed cracks in values, not rules and procedures, a university trustee said Friday."
Kentucky S Jeremy Clark has decided to accept Michigan's offer to greyshirt.

Hoke recruiting is now leading to kids willing to greyshirt based upon the arrival of other players. Obviously punctuates the point becoming clear as of late: players are committing now based upon wanting to play with the incoming talent.
I just listened to the Recruiting Roundup podcast and Sam was clear that he did not expect any commitments from these two on SATURDAY. Excuse the caps lock but I felt that Sam was giving a hint by continually saying the word SATURDAY with extra emphasis - perhaps meaning that committments are more likely on Sunday/Monday? Maybe just wishful thinking/hearing on my part, but in any event he reaffirmed that we are looking very good for both of these guys.
To them we are number 4 but on a comment a person asked that if we add Jarrod Wilson our class could jump to number 2 and even push Notre Dame for the number 1 spot. Come on Jarrod go Blue!!
Sorry for the onslaught of posts by the way fellow mgobloggers.
Looks like he is going to Northwestern, good luck to him.
