I know I said my next video would be Michigan vs san diego state 2004, but I couldn't wait to get this one up. This is the infamous 10-10 tie from 1973. Michigan was screwed over by the big ten athletic directors who voted for ohio to the Rose Bowl.
ohio only attempted ONE pass the entire game, in the 4th quarter, which was intercepted by Michigan.
I personally am a huge advocate for Michigan recognizing and claiming 1973 as national championship. They have been recognized as national champions by the National Championship Foundation, but the university doesn't claim the title. Hopefully Dave Brandon does the right thing, and claims it.
Per the below ESPN article the Paterno statue at PSU is going to stay, for now. Personally, I think that is a huge mistake. I have a lot of family that are big PSU fans and I understand the love for the guy. But, I think the Trustees (ironic name in this case) is in for a bit of a shock when they realize that every televised game is going to start with them showing the statue and talking about what Joe did, or did not do. Essentially, every time your University is put on TV it is going to be shown how they still praise a guy who at the very least enabled a child molester. Yeah, that is just the way I would want my University represented.
James Fallows, the excellent Atlantic writer, has been covering the state of college sports and academics this week and published a blog post consisting mostly of an email he received from an MGoBlogger, complete with a link and shout out to the blog.
Khalid Hill's team representing the Detroit Lions advanced to the finals of the NFL National 7-on-7 Tournament today to take on the team representing the Miami Dolphins. Congrats and good luck to Khalid. Nice to see the kid get some of the spotlight with Shane Morris and Jourdan Lewis not participating in the event.
MDen and other sites like FootballFanatics & FansEdge have just started unveil the new 2012 MIchigan gear. I don't really know what to say except I don't know what the helmet on the last shirt is supossed to be, but's not Michigan's.
(Yes that's for men)
Tremendous just retweeted this twitter diatribe by former player Chris Floyd. I am going to reserve judgment until the full story comes out, but I just don't get this. In the last couple years, we've had similar rants demanding a job for Corwin Brown on the new staff (clearly the AD knew what they were doing), scholarships for relatives (i.e. Braylon Edwards), and ex-players injecting themselves into the head coach search process. I appreciate everything these guys did for the program and university, but this just seems a bit much.
Moved back to Ann Arbor from DC 3months ago because I was promised a job in the Athletic Department.....
I am a former student athlete and National Champion
After a promise and 3 months of waiting and interviewing and waiting more, they go and hire someone else....Leaders and Best? SMH
Still, My loyalty is with Michigan. I'll always support one of my favorite people, Coach Hoke any way I can....
There is a serious disconnect between the athletic department and the athletic alumni and they wonder why we don't come back or give back!
