the season has truly begun now
Last night at a ceremony in Novi, looks like Frank Beckman is MC. His segment begins at 162:55 and is a must see. Around the 167 mark, he tears into the Freep, and former players that turned against the program (Borens maybe?). Way to go Rick, another reason we love you:
I loved reading another great edition of TWIS from Brian until I got to the end when he mentions "Hopefully another 4 teams will lose to I-AA teams this week".
Not to be Karma nervous but we're uh um uh um playing a I-AA team this week.
Please Edit Please!!!!
Assuming everyone has already heard about the big to-do about the Mexican "reporter" Inez Sainz and the NY Jets, I was curious to see what people think about women being allowed in football locker rooms. I know the issue was resolved years ago (with women being allowed in) but it still an interesting debate, IMO. I fall on the side of women not being allowed in men's locker rooms, if only because the opposite would never, ever be allowed.
If you're not familiar with the current event, see the below link (I hope it works): http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/blog/shutdown_corner/post/Jets-looking-to-address-alleged-harassment-of-fe?urn=nfl-269361
In their Skeptic or Believer segment Trevor Matich at ESPN is a skeptic of DRob for Heisman (but also says he's going to square off against Pryor in the 'Shoe for it - doesn't sound like a skeptic but moving on) and said he's seen video of DRob and knows how to stop him. His answer "Get the contain men up field." Sounds simple - I suppose we should ask ND how that worked out...
I was listening to the WTKa podcast today and Sam seemed to have a nice stretch of callers that sounded like they were just subjected to watching the 08 Toledo game for 24hrs straight as opposed to a last second comeback against a rival on the road. I realize we have problems and it's fine to bring them up, but to be that depressed about a big win is just crazy.
So I got to thinking how miserable of a person/fan you must be to not be overjoyed with that victory. If you're not happy with that win then when have you been happy following Mich football? If you are only happy after your team has completed a perfect season and a national championship, What sense does it make to follow a team when 99% of the time you are miserable about it? I thinkit's time for a new hobby
I'm a golfer and that is the only thing I can think of that comes close to the way these people think. "Sir can I pay you $60 for the privlege of being miserable for the next 4.5 hours while I complain about every shot I hit."
I think this is also exposing the RR haters vs the fans upset about the wins. The haters are just hanging onto crap as the momentum has swung...
From Pat Forde's "The Dash" column on ESPN.com:
"We had, I told them, the worst shower discipline of any team I've ever been around. So we talked a little bit about application of soap to the rag and making sure you hit all your body. You know, you can neglect it trying to cut corners, and it shows in how you practice and elsewhere. I'm hoping we show some improvement in that."
