I thought that myself when I read that article that talked about a Data Scientist(tm)
This can be locked and doesn't require discussion but instead thrown up to decimate the Lynn Henning article and the 9 other bs notions that have gone out and around the past week:
UM Ath Dept officials told WTKA that the evaluation of the football program will be like all teams -- after the season, including postseason (HT: MichiganInsider)
Rodriguez will not be fired Monday. He will not be fired after the game Saturday to a chorus of boos by the OSU faithful. He will not be fired in the Shoe. He will not be fired with a fox, he will not be fired in a box.
tl;dr version: Successful Reporter Troll is Successful
Edit: Dave Brandon chimes in
DaveBrandonAD Dave BrandonHeard about a "rumor" re: some "big announcement" on Monday regarding M-Football. Add it to the rumor rubbish pile! Happy Thanksgiving!
Annual "OSU Destruction" Hate Week pic for anyone that wants to add some hate to their internet identity
As has become my custom the last few years, I have used powerful digital imaging technology for the forces of good and fashioned some glorified OSU gore for folks to use as their facebook images (or whatever) during Hate Week.
Previous Hate Week pics:
Lloyd Carr and Gary Moeller took some grief in Ohio for having the temerity to say Ohio State wasn't the rivalry on Michigan's schedule during the 1990s when the Wolverines were dominating the John Cooper-coached Buckeye teams.
"I can't speak (to) what they do now," Boren said. "I wasn't around enough with Coach (Rich) Rodriguez, to know what they do now. But like I said, they had a couple of other rivalries. It was a big game that week, but it's not something they practice for every practice or all year long like we do."
Neg Away..I know Boren is a bit of a talker
I honestly don't care if Rich Rod goes the entire week leading up to the game without mentioning OSU, just as long as he beats them
Choose your poison - Which would you rather have - our 2010 Defense or our 2008 Offense?
The Threet/Sheridamnit led offense ranked 109th in the nation in total offense (290.75 ypg) and 99th in scoring offense at 20.25 points per game. This year's defense is ranked 112th in total defense giving up 445.18 ypg and 99th in scoring defense allowing 33.55 points per game. Ironically almost identical suckitude.
As painful as it is to watch, I would much rather have this years defense rather than the 2008 offense. With our offense we have a chance to win every game (and it's fun to watch). On the other hand it is generally true that you can't win if you can't score any points- witness the 2008 10-13 Toledo debacle.
