Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."
Had this video idea the minute they started running for the hills like the chickens they are.
I realize this may not be everyone's cup of tea music-wise, but the song fits the situation like a glove.
They have only announced 80-100.
After an injury-shortened 2013 season, Ryan could put himself among the Big Ten's elite defenders this fall. Poised for a surge after his sophomore year, when he earned All-Big Ten honors, Ryan has had a tackle for loss in 25 of his past 30 games.

Our player representatives:
Is anyone else wildly optimistic? I look at the secondary, the linebackers, the d-line--and I'm pumped. I look at our QB, our newly-dedicated (and highly touted) RBs, and I'm pumped. I see wide receivers with big time talent, and I'm nearly bursting. I see a schedule that should be relatively easy on the O-line (ND's line is pretty young), giving them time to mature until things get nasty, and I just can't wait anymore. I'm thinking 9 wins, at least. I'm thinking this year Michigan beats Ohio. I'm thinking that if we had State at home, I'd guarantee a win.
I am pumped up.
