things go poorly
Looks like Jewel Hampton is out for the season again, after missing last year with a knee injury.
According to the Freep, RichRod has been working out with Barwis since the spring. After the health issues of Meyer and Dantonio, it's good that he's been working to improve his own health.
Rodriguez, 47, said he sleeps five hours a night if he's fortunate, no more than in a three-hour stretch, because of the constant thoughts about his program.
So how does he keep up his health?
Mostly through his own workouts, five days a week in the early morning on a StairMaster at Schembechler Hall. In the spring, he began lifting weights with U-M strength coach Mike Barwis and said he feels better now than he has in a long time.
So, yeah, it's time to come clean-- I felt a little bad after everyone started applauding my watercolor skills. In truth, it's all Photoshop. This piece was created in about fifteen minutes during a Pattern Stamp tutorial; in truth I hated Watercolor class back in school and haven't done one since.
Thought y'all might enjoy it, and if nothing else it displays the power of Photoshop perhaps in ways some of you didn't know was possible. Granted, Shredder, yes-- I know it's not as awesome as MS Paint, but that's another story...
Also, a quick apology to Brian if I actually misled him into believing that I was sending him a painting...
To all my fellow Mgofriends, I have done these at the previous two home games this year and they have turned out well feel free to stop by and visit our tailgate. Bring friends and family for good fun with Cornhole, washers, beer pong, and the famous Jager cooler. Hope to see the fellow Mgofriends there.
Week 3 Recap
I feel bad about picking on Wyoming after hearing that they lost some players in a car accident. A moratorium on Wyoming for the rest of the season. Boise State still scored 52, such is life in college football. Virginia Tech escaped a lynching after coming from behind 27-21 to win 49-27. ECU went 4-14 on 3rd down, then 3-3 on 4th? Figure that one out, unless they were using the "Never Punt" strategy. Washington State lost to SMU 35-21in a game that featured 13 punts for just under 600 yards. That's some darn fine puntin'.
Two 0-3 teams face off in the "1988 Baltimore Orioles Memorial" game. New Mexico and UNLV begin the battle for the MWC basement. New Mexico has gotten pummeled by good competition like Oregon, Texas Tech and Utah. UNLV has played reasonably well against Wisconsin, Utah, and Idaho. Both teams are 100+ in scoring and defense. Is the MWC the MAC of the west? Also, UNLV's logo looks like a pair of testicles if you look at it long enough. Seriously.
Speaking of New Mexico, New Mexico State goes up against Kansas. NMS already has a loss to SDSU, and we all know the story of Kansas so far. This is the "Jekyll and Hyde" game of the week, depending on which Jayhawk team shows up. New Mexico also gets a special "There's A New Mexico Now?" award for overall statewide incompetence.
The "Food Network's Cupcake Wars" game this week is tOSU versus Eastern Michigan. Eastern is already 0-2 in conference, and started off the season with a loss to Army. Plus they're giving up 37 PPG, while tOSU is only giving up 12. This one may be over at the coin-toss. Special thanks to ABC for putting this up as a regional game again.
Does anyone know of a bus company that will charter people for the away games? I saw quite a few charters at the Notre Dame game and figured that there would be one for Indiana, Purdue, Penn State or Ohio State. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
