My girlfriend is a junior transfer at UM this year and I'm taking her to her first game. Only problem is I can't seem to find anyone I know tailgating. I don't suppose there are any Mgobloggers willing to let us crash their 'gate? I can bring beer and grillable meat as necessary.
Just now on Sportscenter, Kirk Herbstreit shared a few thoughts on our QB.
Kirk: In terms of actual performance against quality opponents, he is on top. Most impressive over 2 weeks, long way to go though.
Denard also won the Capital One Cup Performance of the Week with 65% of the vote, Landry Jones of Oklahoma was second with 15%.
When I made this topic, I was hoping for something more interesting, but there it is. I guess that's why you wait til after these segments to make it =p
I meant to post this before the ND game, but I am still interested in finding out. My manager at work is an ND fan and claimed he "had no choice because he was Catholic." I was wondering how many mgobloggers out there have fought the urge to join in the tradition of mediocrity and root for the Wolverines as Catholics.
As an aside, the expression on my managers' face when I mentioned Saturday's game was priceless and his misery was delicious.
FCS SUCCESS AGAINST FBS
• Already in 2010, six FCS schools (formerly Division I-AA) have
beaten FBS schools. Those six victories are highlighted by UMass’
fellow CAA member James Madison beating No. 13 Virginia Tech,
21-16, last weekend.
• JMU was just the second FCS school to ever beat a ranked FBS
school. The first was Appalachian State upsetting No. 5 Michigan,
34-32, on Sept. 1, 2007 at Michigan Stadium.
• CAA teams have 10 wins against FBS opponents in the last five
years. JMU’s victory last week was the first of 2010, but in 2009,
four CAA teams beat FBS teams.
• The other FCS teams to beat FBS teams this season are: Jacksonville
State over Ole Miss (49-48, 2OT), North Dakota State over Kansas
(6-3), South Dakota over Minnesota (41-38), Gardner-Webb over
Akron (38-37), and Liberty over Ball State (27-23).
Found this while strolling around the Umass blog, which is better than many blogs I have seen for some big time FBS teams. Although it is still horrible.
If someone could embed this that would be great.
Rogers is really playing well.
I hope this was not posted earlier.
