Looks like the lights are coming to the Big House....
Per AP's Larry Lage's Twitter: @LarryLage: U-M Regents approved 1.8 million project to add permanent lights @ the Big House
I didn't see this mentioned yet, but if it was brought up in one of the other Denard threads, I apologize.
I saw a promo for College Gameday this week that showed pieces of an interview that Erin Andrews did with Denard.
So it looks like I will actually have a reason to watch Gameday for the first time this season. I believe it starts at 9am ET on ESPNU and moves to ESPN at 10. I am assuming the interview would not be shown until after it switches over, but who knows.
So ND plays MSU in East Lansing on saturday night and I don't thnk I've ever had such a hard time figuring out who to root for. We play both teams, so head-to-head is a wash. Thought process, in bullet form:
Pros of Rooting for MSU:
- Big Ten Pride.
- Gives us the opportunity to ruin their undefeated season.
- ND loses two in a row, on national television, has legit chance to start the year 1-4. HAHA ND we hate you.
Pros of rooting for ND:
- They have a better shot than MSU at finishing the year with a good record/national ranking, which would help us in the long run.
- Would give us an extra boost of confidence to see a team we just beat go on the road and win.
- MSU loses at home on national television. HAHA MSU we hate you.
Thoughts? I'm leaning towards rooting against MSU, just because I hate Dantonio.
I'd love to see M break out the triple option this year with Hopkins as the dive back and Fitz as the pitch back. Do you think it is in the playbook already, yet to be installed in the arsenal, or never gonna happen? If it is in the arsenal this year, when could we/I expect to see it??
Just read a nice article about Crist not having a concussion that really seems to emphasis the fact the Crist was evaluated by doctors and determined to be ok.
However, according to WebMD... sorry I googled it quickly, concussion symptoms include confusion and blurred vision.
First, how does someone exhibit concussion symptoms but not have a concussion?
Second, why does the freakin media go out of their way to spin it like nothing was wrong and almost make Kelly out to be the good guy? If RR had done something like this it would have been more negativity with people saying RR doesn't care about his players. The double standard is so apparent and disgusting. People are freakin lemmings!
Given the limited playing time (smart for the team, somewhat sucks for the Heisman race), I'm pretty curious to see how many carries Denard gets the next two weeks. Against UMass, I'm guessing <10 carries, ~100 yards. It's be smart to test the RBs, as well as give Denard practice throwing longer routes. Thoughts?
