I thought that myself when I read that article that talked about a Data Scientist(tm)
Pay attention to your Mgoblog out of town Michigan viewing thread. This last weekend I found myself having a beautiful time in NYC. After walking around the Central Park area with my wife, we decided we wanted to watch the second half of the Michigan game, but alas, without a computer and access to Mgoblog, we did not know where to go. We even happened upon a group of 20-something guys walking around all in Michigan gear and carrying a football. "Hey," I said, "Where are you guys watching the game?" Turns out it was halftime but they were watching at their apartment, out taking a walk. We ended up at Mickey Mantles on Central Park and of the 25 TVs one game had Michigan-Purdue so we were able to watch the end.
Interestingly, there were college football fans from all over the country and we ended up talking college football for a few hours. We even spent an hour talking football with a couple who are Buckeye fans, and I must report they were very nice, intelligent, and supportive of Michigan's return to prominence for the sake of The Greatest Rivalry in Sports. I shook the guy's hand, wished him luck, and said, "Be careful what you wish for!"
Give it up with the eternal wishing that Fitz Toussaint is gonna be some mysterious weapon that gets unleashed and saves the day the next 2 games. Yeah he is a fighter, yeah he has has terrible luck, and yeah, I hope he can be 100% and get some PT. But there are many people that still need to get the delusions out of their head. He is an average back at best, injured or not. Our future at RB is not Fitz Toussaint or Mike Cox. It's Smith and Hopkins. Get used to it.
Badgers seem to be confident
I think Michigan is highly overrated for beating bad teams. If the game was being played in Madison I wouldn’t be too worried but UW always seems to find a way to lose in the Quiet House. I can’t help but think of 1998 when UW was 9-0 heading into Ann Arbor and lost by 17. That said, this team is clicking on all cylinders right now and I’m sure the players and coaches want to exact some revenge from the 2008 collapse. Given how bad Michigan’s defense is I expect UW to once again put up a lot of points.
Hopefully, UM keeps the turnovers to a minimum and the offense clicks better than last week. Go Blue!
It's one of their 60-minute specials. They have whittled down all the dead time between plays - it's basically the Every Snap video, but on TV.
Not much to discuss as the Eagles are completely handing it to the Redskins. Howeva - the Redskins set up their first score on a nice WHEEL OF DOOM! Wonder if they watched our game against the Illini last week...
Hard Edge this week.
