things go poorly
Ron English thinks it was kosher to have Tressel keep scoring on his Eagles:
"I felt like Jim (Tressel, Buckeyes coach) felt that we were still throwing it so he was going to keep scoring," English said. "That's probably what happened out there. I have to weigh developing our receivers, our quarterbacks and our protection. I always try to do that.
But, he leaves a fair warning for the Vest...
"Every dog has his day. I've had my days. I'm taking mine right now. I'm sure there'll be a day when I'm giving mine again, whether it be here or somewhere else. But I promise you, I'll be back giving my butt-whuppins out, too. It goes around.
"I'll be doing this a long time. I'm 42 years old. I'll be in this profession for 20 more years, so I'll have my day. I don't say that in disrespect. Let me say it again because I respect Jim Tressel. I don't say that I'm (ticked) off at Jim Tressel. I don't stay that that way. I just know that. Nebraska beats us (at Arizona State, 77-28, in 1995 and) we shut them out (19-0) the next year to end their (26-game winning) streak. That's the nature of the beast. The strong survive in this profession. That's just the way it is."
I don't know if Ron will be able to do it with Eastern, but I hope he someday gets the opportunity to roll Ohio State. He probably has a career of hatred built up for them.

I think we win, but that seems REALLY high considering IU's offensive power.
Let's hope the money is right.
in spots yesterday? The UFR may totally disagree but I thought he had some nice plays.
Either way, I really hope we can get him on the field more because as bad as Obi has been we basically have ZERO depth behind him.
Open thread for tonight's game. There are a lot of Wolverines playing tonight and I wish Edwards, Harris, Henne, and Long a great game.
RR is in year 3 of 6 under his current contract, earning just under 2 million per year. What would it take this year for RR to get a contract extension? And if Michigan were to go to a New Year's Day Bowl and win, what amount of money would you be comfortable paying RR? I personally would like to see his contract extended as long as they go 4-4 in the Big Ten, and continually get better throughout the course of the season. The amount of money depends greatly on the upward projection of this team at the end of the season. Finish 9-3 or better, and I wouldn't mind upping the salary into the 3 million - 3.5 million range. Discuss.
