There was a forum post here yesterday about my recent editorial for Detroit Sports Nation regarding Jim Delany owing an apology to college football. Here is the follow-up article if anyone is interested.
More information has come to light about the crew for the game this past Saturday. One of the officials is from Grand Rapids, Michigan. Furthermore, I take a look at one possible solution to the problem regarding compensation for officials.
Thanks for reading.
Brian Kelly... still being an ass (a defensible move, but still an ass move).
At least we do not need to worry about a sudden upgrade in MSU's QB position.
To hell with Notre Dame!
I have heard Harbaugh say this a bunch: How much he loves "Fair, honest, healthy competition" regarding competition within the team for playing time, and game day battles with other teams. While it may seem like a corny /trite quote reeking of coach speak, he truly does seem to love the day to day and week to week battles.
While he is known for his tirades on the sideline, I have found Jim to be very fair and complimentary of other teams when they win that competition, as much as it must kill him inside. After the Iowa loss this year, he showed a great deal of respect for their effort and stadium atmosphere.
While we all wanted to win on Saturday, probably nobody moreso than Jim, I believe a certain aspect of his moral fiber / his psychological foundation was offended by what transpired on the field, more than it just being sour grapes about a loss. Jim seems to really value the integrity of the game of football, and I think he was more than just upset about bad calls going against his team, I truly believe his football being was offended by the absurdity on Saturday.
