I don't know exactly what the protocol is for this, it's possible that they are just using last year's helmets for spring practice and will switch it up for fall practice or the season, but for now it looks like they are sticking with the helmets from last year. Personally, I'm impartial about the helmet numbers, but I do for a fact dislike the grey facemask. Thoughts?
Edit: As multiple commenters have pointed out, these are just practice helmets which are identical to those worn the previous year; they are not repainted until the summer. This helmet design has no bearing on the one that will be used by this year's team.
Not sure how this works since it doesn't seem like either team did anything outside of the rules. $36 Million (even if spread out over 2 years) is a huge hit and will end up changing the NFL FA landscape.
slightly harsher than the ones on OSU b/c of more scholarships:
- one year postseason ban;
- 15 scholarships
- vacated wins from 08 an 09;
- three years probation;
- three year show cause on john blake.
First time I have heard anything like this -- a major player, no less than the entire Pac12 -- now going to vote AGAINST the BCS to move TO A PLAYOFF. Mention is that only conf champs would be eligible.
I've always thought Pac12 and B1G sort of march in step, given Rose Bowl and now the agreement of cross-conf games year to year etc. This would seem to be a break in that.
I was curious if anyone has seen the official ranking of the 68 teams? During the selection show CBS said they would reveal that in their breakdown show. I didn't watch it, but I thought it would be available online. I can't find it anywhere. I thought it might be interesting because it feels like they maybe moved Michigan down a line to make things fit.
For the inevitable, I did spend 10 fruitless minutes with google, ESPN and CBS. I'm sure I'll feel like an idiiot in 25 seconds when someone posts the link, but I'll take the abuse over trying fruitlessly to keep searching. I'll admit defeat.
