Per a source close to the situation, Sam Grant will decide by the end of the weekend. Things seem to be favoring Michigan over Oklahoma as well. I figured I'd share this real quick to maybe give you something to look forward to over the weekend.
Woodson is No. 4 on ESPN's defensive "Any-Era Team." Yes, this is one of those dumb lists ESPN does when there is nothing better going on, but old guys say nice things about No. 2, so it's worth a read.
Thought this was kind of funny, we need to get some of the current Michigan team to do a video of this quality... Not sure what song they would want to do, brought me back to the days of Coner and Tone Clem (before he defected to the Buffs)... Enjoy!
So, someone planned a homepage takeover on ESPN, spent a lot of timing building a very cool piece of creative, and just had some really bad timing.
EDIT: Total embed fail.
The Mother of Landon Collins, is upset that Nick Saban focuses on the NFL more than academics with his players.
In an interview with ESPN the Magazine, Justin explained that an in-home visit conducted by Tide head coach Nick Saban last June was something she couldn’t shake. Specifically, Justin was put off by the coach going with his “I can get your son into the NFL” pitch
Saban doesn't care about academics? In other news, snow is white, grass is green, water is blue, and I will die one day.
I just read an excerpt on Grantland from a new book on Joe Paterno. Is this book 25 pgaes long? How in the hell do you get a book out on Joe Paterno's life and the scandal that brought him down within 3 months? From the descriptions I could find on the book this is not a John U Bacon 1 in a million I was in the right place at the right time situations where he was already working on a book when all hell broke loose. He states that he went to Penn St once the story broke. Check out the excerpt and if you have any further insight I'd love to hear it.
This has to be a triumph of technology. 3 days after a man's death there is digital book to be purchased about it?
Also, the one thing I can't quite reconcile from the excerpt is that Joe was not close to his assistants and most of them thought he was a prick. I could see that as I was never fond of him, but then why such loyalty?. Why wasn't there more turnover?
