I GIVE UP ON HATING WISCONSIN
Cam Newton " I did it the right way"
The NCAA won't say its case on Newton's recruitment is closed, even though it has cleared Newton
SIAP. DetNews has a few quotes from DB about NCAA rules.
Best quote, "I spent less time with lawyers doing a billion-dollar transaction than I did with the recent NCAA case."
While the movie "The Big Chill" is not truly a football movie, it is a movie involving Michigan Football. Thought folks would like to throw out some football trivia related to the movie, any other movies with Michigan football, or other trivia appropriate to the Big Chill event this weekend.
Questions I will start with but looking for others.
- What is the date of the football game shots shown in the movie?
- Which Michigan players are featured in the football sequence?
- Who were the announcers for the game?
Other content and questions appreciated. If a savvy video expert can come up with the football video sequence from the Big Chill, I will gladly contribute positive points.
Based on cumulative record of opponents*, ESPN blogger Brian Bennett claims ND's 2010 schedule was the toughest. In comparison, he ranks Michigan's 15th, which is third in the B10 behind Illinois (10th) and PSU (14th). Also interesting, tri-champions MSU, OSU and Wisky come in at 44th, 55th and 70th, respectively.
* I have not gone back to check Bennett's calculations, but it appears he may be including only FBS opponents. If that is true, it might explain why ND comes out on top.
The usual suspects are near the top. Alabama's Nick Saban gets $5.9 million. Texas's Mack Brown makes $5.2 million, and Oklahoma's Bob Stoops grabs $4.4 million. Urban Meyer is walking away from a $4 million salary, and Rich Rod is at $2.5 million.
The big shocker to me comes in the ACC, as USA Today got a hold of Wake Forest's (private) figure. Brace yourself, Jim Grobe was paid $2.9 million in 2010. Not bad for a coach that had a nine-game losing streak this year and finished 3-9.
