here's one vote for "John Beilein's head in a Futurama jar"
Didn't see this posted (story was posted in DetNews at 1am), but in summary, Angelique has UM starting 0-2 but then beating IU, MSU, @PSU, Illini. Ultimately losing the last three (including @Purdue) and finishing 6-6.
PFT is reporting that Chris Perry is presently expected to rejoin his UFL team.
Apparently his mother recently passed away and Chris' roster cut was a formality since he has yet to report to camp. The team expects him to report.
Sorry to hear about his mother, but I am glad that his career is most likely not over.
So I just saw this article:
Apparently, a Houston WR who broke his leg against Marshall in 08 is suing Marshall and the CUSA for violations of rules on maintaining a safe playing field. I didn't see this play live, but it is readily available (Warning: a little graphic).
What's your take on this? I definitely think he's in the right. It was TOTALLY irresponsible to have that cart there. I can't imagine the circumstances under which somebody didn't realize that was stupid. On the other hand, I'm concerned about what this could mean for the future of football, and schools being held liable for millions in potential lost pro revenue because they allowed play when the turf was wet.
Eleven Warriors has the sketches of what the Uni's are supposed to look like. Man, I dont know about you guys but as much as I loved/still love Nike, I am glad we dont have them messing around with our tradition. Here's the link
Print version of the USA today details out the Nike Pro Combat uniforms for the participating teams. "the Buckeyes will wear red helmets for the first time since the late 1960s" and "Bill Jones, Ohio State's associate athletics director, says the desgin saultes the red leather-helmeted players of the 1942 Buckeyes team that won the school's first national title."
I know the Nike Pro Combat uniforms were discussed on here already, but I hadn't heard the specifics yet and couldn't find it anywhere else on the board. Pictures will be up on collegefootball.usatoday.com per the print version at 10:30am, but I can't find anything online saying the same thing to link here.
EDIT: Link now up:
I guess it could be worse than red helmets....Florida is wearing Gator Skin unis against Georgia and TCU is wearing lizard skin unis against Oregon State.
Nice story about Conway, the "Detroit version of Blind Side" living with his coach. It doesn't sugarcoat the fact that he did some bad things, but hopefully that is all behind him in his life, whatever happens in football.
