"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
So I thought nothing of True Detective Season 1 when it was announced. I mean Matt McConaughey was a rom com guy and Woody Harrleson hadn't done much serious before this. Then I watched; superbly acted, great score, cool theme and an amazing story with the two lead characters having vastly different yet great story arcs. Unlike anything that's been on TV for a while. The whole Carcosa and Yellow King stuff was way out there.
I enjoyed the first episode of the new season, it could go in a lot of different ways. if you haven't seen it yet, I would recommend it. Helps fill the Game of Thrones void.
I have high hopes.
Today Michigan is playing Cal in the Regional Final of the Ann Arbor Regional. If Michigan wins this game, Michigan advances to the Super Regionals. If Michigan loses, Michigan and Cal play another game immediately afterwards. The game is on ESPN3.
Full report will be sent to Ace, but here is are some quick hits from tonights game.
La Costa Canyon wins 13-6 in a cold, sloppy game in southern California. Westview came into the game a double digit underdog, but led going into the 4th quarter after a 75yard TD catch by Taylor McNamara. A quick slant that he proceeded to break some tackles and dive in from the 3yards out to complete the play for a TD. La Costa Canyon powered their way down the field behind their strong offensive line and often found large holes going left behind Erik Magnusson. After taking the lead 13-6 with 5 minutes left, Magnusson had a huge 3rd down tackle when Westview was trying to respond on the next drive. Statistcally I'd guess La Costa out gained Westview by over 200 yards, but the cold conditions and the wet field led to some sloppy play and stalled out drives for LCC in the red zone.
I'll pass the stats and more impressions to Ace for his weekly roundup.
Go Blue! Beat Ohio!!
