go go go
And the Angry Michigan Secondary-Hating God is back.
RR said at his press conference today that Floyd was done for the season. "He got rolled up. It's one of those freak things that happen...we're pretty young in the secondary -- we're getting younger." Apparently it happened in practice. Courtney Avery will start in Floyd's place.
I know people get tired of the decimated defense theme. They want someone to pay for the poor performance on the field. But injuries do matter. They matter a lot.
I am bracing for the fan meltdown as we go (at best) 1-3 to finish the conference slate. Can we even beat Purdue?
4 of the 5 "Experts" picked UM to win...
However, the bad news is that Dodd picked UM.
Of course, 3 of 4 "experts" at CollegeFootballNews predict we will be really freaking out by 4pm on Saturday:
However!!!! Fuitek picked The Illini!!!!!!!
Home team, with three straight losses, is a three point favorite against the road team who has beat exactly zero average or above teams, but, is annointed as the "surprise" team in the conference because the don't embarrass themselves when they lose.
Sounds like the definition of a "toss-up"
I got this sent to me by an Aggie - apparently the University of Texas has decided to make a ton of statues of the greats of all their sports. That sounds great - only problem is they look completely ridiculous...
Check out the UT thread for some hilarious photoshops (you've gotta go through a few pages but they are well worth it - Colt McCoy gets some great PS jobs).
Well, this week is a big week for me. I turn 30 on Friday, go to the game with my brothers and dad on Saturday, and we all go with my wife on the big house tour on Sunday.
Since there seems to be a void of topics to talk about right now (/s) I thought I'd change things a bit and see if anyone has some advice or just comments about their big house tour experience. I read that you get to put on pads, run through the tunnel, kick a field goal, and throw a touchdown. Were you able to do this when you went? I bought a football with a T to practice my throws and kicking. I also plan to get the book there and get it signed.
I have to admit, as much as the last three weeks have been painful, I honestly can't wait for this experience.
I know everyone is angry, but I want you to think about how angry you are then ask yourself from what you have seen of RR and everything he has endured here, how angry this guy must be? How much bottled venom is in his gut that he is not allowed to say because of his position? I hope he doesn't have a dog
Now think about removing him as coach without giving him a chance to exact revenge on the thousands that have done him wrong. I get sick thinking about this, it would be like in the movie Gladiator the guys family gets slaughtered and they just put him in prison never to be heard from again. RR has made some mistakes, but he is a good coach with a huge chip on his shoulder. I can't guarantee he'll have wild success next year even though I think he will, but what I think I can promise is no sympathy for our enemies from RR. I can promise the victories will be sweeter for those of us that have supported him if he wins big next year.
