Mike Lantry, 1972
So having just read the article on m.go.licio.us on cold weather BCS bowl games, I'm glad to see there are still people out there willing to give the cold a shot when talking about bowl games. I personally love snow football, and watching my team win in the snow is even better.
Patriots fans do this every year (among other teams), and the NFL has set a precedent with their recent decision on a New York Super Bowl for 2014. I've heard many a student want to kill me when i wish for some snow late in the season, but I'm still hoping to see a full blown snow game before I graduate.
What's everyone's opinion on this? Pros/cons on this kind of game? Would it help solve the "is the SEC truly better outside of their warm comfort zone" debate? I certainly think it would legitimize either how good they really are or how well they have been using that warmth to their advantage.
Yahoo Sports is reporting that Lendale White was just cut by Seattle. The team stated that it was White's lack of a good work ethic that caused his release but White also has a 4 game suspension coming up due to a substance abuse infraction.
Farrar believes that Carroll is using White as an example to show that he is running a tight ship.
Pete, you so crazy!
I don't know if this has been discussed already, but can Demar still enroll in Michigan and attend classes even if he hasn't been cleared by NCAA to play or is this more a Michigan thing? I know at one point in basketball they had partial qualifiers (D Wade at Marquette) where as the individual can enroll in classes but not participate in team activites. If the individual achieves certain success in the class room they get that year of eligibility back. Does this hold true for football as well?
Brian mentioned the below link in his Blog entry, "http://mgoblog.com/content/unverified-voracity-still-vulnerable-italicized-exclamations" These are just my thoughts and yes I need to vent!!
So let me get this straight. OSU can break NCAA rules all over the place and nothing comes out of it. No headlines, ESPN garble, etc. NOTHING!! Yet Michigan commits minor violations, which provide no advantages, occur because of lazy idiots not doing their job and the result is that RR is lamb basted and made to look unethical. WHAT A BUNCH OF CRAP!!!
Calm down.... OK.
I just hope RR and the team can wipe the floor this season and show what a real eithical, honest, and hard working coach can accomplish. I hope RR doesn't decide this Michigan job isn't worth the hassel and leave. I know many out there would love that but I believe he is the future for this football program and EVERYBODY NEEDS TO LEAVE HIM ALONE AND LET HIM DO WHAT HE DOES BEST WHICH IS BEING A GREAT COACH, ON AND OFF THE FIELD, AND WINNING GAMES!!!
Ok I'm done. I said what I needed to. Thank you.
No link yet....just dropped.
So Michigan 2010 predictions have come and gone this spring. So I want to make my 2010 OSU predictions. I really think they have trumendous talent, however I feel that history is going to repeat itself for them, and they are not going to live up to the hype.
Marshal- Win, but it's going to close like Navy 2009 and Ohio U 2008. 1-0
Miami Fl- Loss, like USC past 2 years. Miami qb Harris is very good. 1-1
Ohio U- Win, beat down and it will be ugly. 2-1
EMU- Win, but a close game. EMU played us very close last year as well as almost beating Northwestern (not bad for an 0-12 team). 3-1
Illinois- Win, just like how they beat Indiana last year. 4-1
Indiana- Win, just how they beat India last year. 5-1
Wisconsin- Loss, game will be hyped but osu will lose as they lost to PSU 08 and Illinois in 07. 5-2
Purdue- Win, by 2 touchdowns 6-2
Minnesota- Loss, random loss like they had from Purdue last year. 6-3
Penn St.- Win, by 2 touchdowns, 7-3
Iowa- Loss, both teams playing very well but Stanzi puts on a show. 7-4
Michigan- Loss, all is well in the universe again, 7-5
After a 7-5 season irrational osu fans call for tressels head, as they head for the Almo Bowl.
It hurt me greatly taking effort to look up there schedule, but I just want to show that osu can have a below average season this year.
