I did not make this headline up
This was playing as part of a Sprint ad on th UMhoops sidebar. I couldn't stop watching it so I thought I'd share it.
Finishing up a close game in the D2 bracket. Delta State is down 3 with 2:22 to go. Went for it on 4th and goal from the one. False start pushes it back 5. So they go for the FG. It's blocked. Wait... DELAY OF GAME! KO return goes to the offensive 45! Challenged! He fielded the ball on one knee, he's down, it's coming back to the defensive 30.
Coming up next BYU vs UTEP at the New Mexico Bowl. JCB has UTEP +12. Neither of these teams are very good, but I like the matchup to be closer than 12 as well. I'll take and the points, but I'll take BYU straight up.
GATOR: No. 21 Mississippi State (8-4) vs. Michigan (7-5)
With the vultures waiting to swoop in on embattled Wolverines coach Rich Rodriguez, the circumstances seem ripe for him to make AD Dave Brandon's decision more difficult. With five weeks' rest, star quarterback Denard Robinson will flash his September form with a 200/200-type day. The Bulldogs will do ample damage to Michigan's porous defense, but lack the comparable big-play guys.
Also of note:
- He has the Big Ten going 3-5 (4-5 if you include Nebraska).
- Michigan is the only Big Ten team predicted to win on New Year's Day (1-4 record)
- He picks Auburn to beat Oregon (boo, I hate Auburn)
SIAP...but back-to-back posts..whoa!
Anyway, It appears that all hope for MD DT Darian Cooper is not yet lost. Four days ago, it appeared as though Darian had eliminated Michigan, per a GBW report. However, Tom retweeted this from Cooper on Thursday:
DT Darian Cooper RT @SuperCooper93michigan coach just left my house
Intrigued, I did a little snooping. a dismayed fan asked him the following question over twitter:
@SuperCooper93 you really dropped Michigan???say it ain't so!!! Good luck whoever you choose, except when you play the maize and blue
Darian responded with the following:
@JRednick no I just want to know what happens with the coaching staff
So, it looks like, once the coaching situation is resolved, we could still have a very real shot with the kid.
