I can't figure Kansas out anymore. Lose to North Dakota, win vs. Georgia Tech, now getting dominated by Southern Miss? I still think Turner Gill is a good coach and just needs some time to do his thing (Sound familiar?)...but man they are bad! Like Minnesota could beat them bad! . I bet they miss Mark the Michelin Man Mangino down in Lawrence, but I'm sure they have a lot more room and food now.
BTW Guess who led (as a coach) Kansas to a 10-0 season in 1899...Fielding Yost.
Yost was at Nebraska (formerly the BUGEATERS), Kansas, Stanford and San Jose State before Michigan.
So a friend of mine posted the following picture on Facebook
With the caption "Better tie those laces, Biotch"
Ok. Have team spirit, its cool. I respond with "You are just mad because MSU players get their shoelaces taken when they go to jail".
Okay, so former QBs.
Many of you probably still remember Steven Threet as the better half of our horror-show 2008 offense. I personally thought that Threet played as well as he could given injury, and wished him well as he transferred to ASU.
That being said, I came cross an interesting (an to be quite honest, jaw-dropping) bit of news today:
"Threet leads all Pac-10 quarterbacks and ranks seventh nationally in passing yards and is ranked first in the league and 10th in the nation in total offense (322.5 yards per game). More importantly to Threet, the Sun Devils high-powered offense has translated to a pair of wins over lesser opponents to start the season."
Threet's 2008 vs. 2010 stats are interesting:
Upon further review, I have also discovered that Ryan Mallet leads the SEC in total offense with 701 yards passing.
And um, I think you may have sure you've heard of this guy Denard.
So... former and current Michigan QBs lead three of the BCS conferences in total offense! Pretty wild. Good bit of trivia to drop at the tailgate, bar, or living room tomorrow. Thought you would enjoy.
