Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
Interesting Michigan post game interview with Oregon State head coach Gary Anderson:
"It's hard to be in a game where kids are playing their guts out and you can't stop the power play time and time again. It was a physical football game.....This was a team loss...we loss the game on offense, defense and special teams.."
Probably most interesting comment about his team was that some guys have to "grow up".
Obviously their team is young, but it sounded more like a criticism of one player's attitude, because "99% of the team is all in".
Not sure if he's talking about the quarterback or other?
Big Ten: 3-0
Misc: 4-14 (W's for Murray State, VCU, New Mexico, Gonzaga)
Uh, the title kinda says it all; Breaking news from Cleveland.com
Story includes pathetic "I'm really sorry" immediately after by Coleman. Sure, you were. And so was Robert Reynolds.
This quote is amusing, in the way that contradiction is amusing:
OSU junior defensive tackle Dexter Larimore said: "I personally thought it was just a guy being aggressive, playing the game like it should be played. It was a bad hit, but I think as a player, it's hard to be able to say my head needs to be here or there while you're flying around at 100 mph."
Ohio State AD Gene Smith called the suspension, "poor judgement." Maybe he should be fined for criticizing the officiating?
