Super Bowl L (50) is 8 days away. Panthers are favored by 4.5 to 6 pts, with a signif amount of variance in the line. Game will be at the 49'ers new stadium in the Bay area south of SF. I am told the new stadium is beautiful.
So, who are you picking and why? Do you pick b/c of who you think will win, or who you want to win? Does the hype about the Peyton v. Cam match-up impact your choice?
And while we're at it, are any of our Mgobloggers going to the game? Anybody ever been to a Super Bowl before?
Everybody have a great Saturday. Must profess some envy for the group of you going to the basketball and hockey game today with a meet-up in between. Have fun and Go Blue!
Take this with a grain of salt and place whatever value you wish. This can probably be chalked up as a complete troll however with the "silent commitment" thread looming over our heads, this might be of some interest.
I was playing Counter Strike, when someone notices my Steam Block M avatar, and asks if I go to the school to which I reply yes. Then he asks if I know his friend Jabrill Peppers, to which I say no, but I know of him. He then tells me his other friend is about to commit to Michigan.
I ask him who his other friend is. He responds, "Jordan Fuller." I proceed to ask him how he knows him, and he said he played football with him. I ponder this new rumor I was just told, and then after a minute I tell him I know a little about Fuller, but that I also heard he's rumored to favor OSU. He responds, "Yea but I think he's down to Michigan or ND."
Not much, but it's a little nugget. He said he was from Jersey, and didnt really say anything about football after that or anything else on the matter.
Not sure how feasible this would even be. Is Fuller's high school even in close proximity to PC where this alleged friend would know both Peppers and Fuller? I also would like to think he's not trolling as I would imagine he would like to continue the troll and press me further into conversation about it.
Hello: "Surprising Pickup" that will Silent Tommorrow and be Announced on NSD (EDIT: Signs Point to Viramontes?)
I was informed today, by the recruit, that he will silent commit to #Michigan 'sometime tomorrow', announce NSD. A surprising pickup for UM.— Brandon Justice (@BrandonCJustice) January 29, 2016
EDIT 7PM - an astute reader figured out MaizeNBrew "recruiting editor" has a crystal ball. Which he turned "cloudy" on Viramontes late this afternoon. Which if you don't want to ruin a kid's announcement is probably what you would do if someone from your team is about to tweet out "we know of a commit but he wants to keep it quiet until NSD". Viramontes would also be surprising and fascinating and pleasing. Broome's ballz have a 85% success rate which is extremely high. So that would appear to be the logical guess.
I know this was expected, but havent seen it reported. Per ESPN its official. Best of luck to him.
Keeping my fingers crossed for Asiasi still.
The purple-faced one is staying at ND. Smart move by the Irish; kinda surprised he isn't sniffing around an NFL gig.
