Tonight we've got Miami at Pitt and, uh, South Lake at Apopka. Yes, that is high school.
Miami at Pitt looks to be an interesting game for a variety of reasons, but I'm personally wondering if Jacory Harris goes back to his play from last year. He looked awful last week, though Pitt hasn't looked exactly stellar either.
Looks like this was worn during the UMass game. After viewing the linked video what's your opinion;
Should it be a gameday tradition or is it a distraction to the players?
Now that we have seen the offensive playbook seemingly open up, I wonder if the TE will or will not eventually factor in as the final adjustment to the offensive schemes. I assume we would eventually see the TE like they are utilized in Florida's offense. At that point, I am not sure what you would defend.
I know RR has not traditionally gone to the TE as much, but he is continuing to recruit the position with pass catchers instead of bigger blocking types (e.g. Tabb who is also looking at Florida and Iowa) so I would assume this wrinkle is eventually coming. Now the existing TE corps have shown very good along with very poor receiving skills so maybe they are simply playing the odds to consciously limit attempts their direction. Either way, this offense is looking like it will keep going scorched earth.
I have been stewing about the BTN's epic fails to return back to coverage of the Michigan-UMass game after the in-game updates and other stupid sh-t. The only outlet for my anger is to send a complaint letter to the BTN. In preparing to do so, I though others might be interested in lodging complaints too since I'm not the only one paying good money for the BTN (not exorbitant money, but all money is "good" money).
If you all are interested in sending a similar complaint, below is some helpful links and information you can simply cut-and-paste into the website form. If you see any necessary changes or ways I can beef up my message please do not hesitate to let me know. If anyone has any other ways to get in contact with the BTN, please share.
I am using the following link to submit my complaint online: http://www.bigtennetwork.com/dpp/about_us/contact-us
At that page, it prompts me to enter the following information. I've taken the liberty of filling in the blank on some of these for your ease in sending complaints as well:

To Whom It May Concern,
I am writing in regards to the BTN's live coverage of Michigan football games. Please refrain, cease, and decist from using of regular cutaways from action on the field for things like in-game updates and advertising except during clear-cut stoppages of play when Michigan has the ball. As you likely know, Michigan runs a "hurry-up" offense and the majority of viewers do not want to miss any plays on the field. Thank you in advance for your compliance.
This past weekend I went to the Texas @ Texas Tech game in Lubbock. I didn't really care one way or the other which team won, so I figured why not wear my Michigan gear? I didn't get much feedback one way or the other, except for a few 'Michigan?' or 'How'd they do today?' comments while we were tailgating and on the way to the game. About midway through the 2nd quarter a film crew was coming up through the stands and since I was wearing my #2 Michigan jersey I wanted to make sure to get it in front of the camera. As the guys left the section after they took the shot I took a closer look and saw that their press passes said 'ESPN Road Trip.' I watched the game afterward to see if I could find myself but I couldn't so after some searching around finally found the 'Road Trip' video and was able to pull the screen shot.
I will have to say that I was disappointed overall with how tame the crowd was and how uninvolved the crowd seemed to be in the game. We were sitting right behind the student section but could barely tell when they were/weren't cheering.
Any other good out of place in Michigan gear pictures?
