this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
I'm getting verklempt...
Let me give you a topic: Marve lists Purdue as his top choice. Discuss.

I need the collective wisdom of mgobloggers---
I'll be in DC next week for work through Friday evening, so I thought a fun thing to do would be catch the late Frozen Four game after work on Thursday night. I'm planning on trying to get tickets for the late game from fans of the losing team in the early game as they leave the arena. Two questions:
1) From the people who have done this before, about how much under face value should I expect to pay? I've heard the stories of people getting them for free, but I'd like to be prepared with cash in hand if possible.
2) Anyone know what the scalping / ticket resale laws are in the DC? Is there a general prohibition, a distance from the arena, open season for capitalism (hold Obama jokes please)?
What a soap opera this has been. The kid has been a verbal to Miami for ever but won't sign his LOI with them even though his brother is on the team. Why? So now Miami could just go tell him to pound sand. I'd love to see that.
As has been advertised pretty much everywhere within a 40 mile radius of the borders of Michigan (and we're a peninsula so that's pissing a whooooooole lotta people off), UofM had seven players representing the Wolverines in the Super Bowl.
Those seven include:
Pittsburgh's linebackers Larry Foote and LaMarr Woodley and, from the Arizona Cardinals, defensive tackles Alan Branch and Gabe Watson, wide receiver and punt returner Steve Breaston, linebacker Victor Hobson and tight end Jerame Tuman.
Several different message boards have seen the disclaimer "Why bring them up? None of them won a NC or BCS bowl!" First off: shut up. Second of all: your mom just yelled down the steps, your Hot Pockets are ready. Tuman was on the '97 team and is, according to the UM haters, still looking for a Nebraska player to merge his NC ring with so that he, in fact, will not have a .5 Championship.
Michigan's seven players topped all other football programs represented in the Super Bowl. Other programs with three or more players included:
Florida State (5), Texas (4), Alabama (4), Illinois (4), UCLA (3!), BYU (3), Arizona State (3), USC (3), Virginia (3), PSU (3), LSU (3), N Carolina (3), Minnesota (3), Miami (3),
Ohio State had 1. Supposedly he did something important, I dunno. I missed it because I was too busy going upstairs to get my Hot Pockets.
Mgoblue.com is reporting that tonight's hockey game has been postponned until Sunday at 4pm due to weather damage at Yost.
Maybe the rough "throw 'em in and see if they float" approach should be reevaluated...
