Found this article on SbB regarding Trent Richardson and his supposedly cozy relationship with (now) estranged booster Tom Al-betar:
There are also a couple of articles regarding tickets T. Richardson received in a couple of very pricey vehicles of which he is listed as the owner:
Does this impact the game we play with Alabama? Given the evidence presented by SbB is it possible for Alabama to state ignorance (pull an ohio) and get off with little or no punishment? What possible sanctions would impact the 2012 Michigan-Alabama game? I ask because I have very little knowledge with regard to compliance and I know Mgoblog has recently become very well versed thanks to our love of ohio Schadenfreude. SIAP I searched and found nothing, including Mgoboard and other media outlets!
This story talks about him meeting with PSU's president and AD when he was in State College recently as part of his gig with ESPN. Wonder how the Nuts would react to this?

Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston: Much of the action in Hurston's novel takes place in The Muck. The area, near Florida's Lake Okeechobee, also produced Wolverines tailback Vincent Smith, who is averaging 8.5 yards per carry this season. The Wolverines also resemble main character Janie Crawford, who returns to Eatonville, Fla., as a mysterious figure and the subject of gossip by her fellow townsfolk. The rest of the Big Ten is wondering about Michigan, which once again has started hot. The Wolverines' dominant win against San Diego State suggests Michigan has improved under Brady Hoke, but Rich Rodriguez's team started off 5-0 last year and lost six of its next eight.
Last game: Beat San Diego State, 28-7
The Muck starring Vincent Smith, Jeremy Gallon, and Brandin Hawthrone
MAC = no surprises
This is going to be one tough watch on TV. Never have 2 schools played with such exact colors and uniform styles. Does anybody know if Wisco is going Sparty for this game and inventing a uniform color? This is the 1 time I would be in favor of those hideous combat jerseys. If you are not familiar with the teams uniforms they use a pretty similar red, their helmets are pretty much the same and they be inverse with Neb in red pants/white shirts and Wiscy will be red/white pants. I would not be surprised if Wiscy went all red and Nebraska went all white to help out.
Added bonus for Wiscy fans is you won't be able to tell if Neb has taken over the stadium.
I seriously think the teams may have a problem figuring out who to pass to and it may cause an interception in this game.
