a terrible blight on our fine country
I happened to notice today that the construction crew appears to be building the scoreboards in horizontal segments. (They are actively working on it today.)
I had thought they would just swing a couple big chunks up there one day. Does anyone know how this is going to be done...and more specifically, if there is a scheduled day or two we should be on watch for the screens to be put up?
(I seem to remember someone here mentioing they knew someone working on the project.)
This more or less broke last night, but Jaleel Johnson officially committed to Iowa today. He was considering MIchigan earlier in the process, but was down to Iowa and Michigan State.
This is a big blow for Michigan State. As of a week ago, they were pretty confident that they had him in the bag. With Danny O'Brien focusing on Michigan and Tennessee and rumors that Norfleet is looking down South a bit, Michigan State is running out of big names on their board. It's possible that the only blue-chip recruit they end up with is Se'Von Pittman, but MSU fans can't feel too confident about that commitment given some of his comments.
As we all know the 4 game ticket packs have been on sale for a couple weeks now with season tix holders, alumni, and victors club getting first crack at them.
Today on my Outlook calander I saw my reminder pop up saying that the general public tickets were going on sale next Monday, so on a whim I decided to pop over to www.mgoblue.com and see what time they went on sale which is where I noticed this bit of info...
Thursday, July 7 -- Football season ticket wait list members (joined as of July 5 and not Victors Club members or football season ticket holders)and I jizzed in my pants....go get your ND tickets here: http://www.mgoblue.com/tickets/home.html
Found this video on ESPN and thought people might find it interesting. Brian Bennett believes Cam Gordon can become a playmaker at linebacker. I hope he's right and the position switch will be beneficial to him and the team. I always thought he would be a better linebacker than DB, especially with his ability to lay the wood. Now he just needs to start wrapping up.
Granted, Bennett's not very well-spoked (should stick to writing) but an interesting segment nonetheless. I personally love how he says he can "be a difference maker if he upgrades and elevates his game." Srsly? And I can be president if I'm elected.

My first reaction to flipping on to the Big Ten Network was why?!?!
Then, I decided to watch it for historical purposes because I am that desperate for football to start.
