Coaches' timeouts are worse. Basketball teams should get one, full stop.
Launching CBS Sports to watch the basketball game keeps causing Shockwave Flash to crash on my Google Chrome, which is preventing me from watching the game. Is there a certain way to fix this or is it something that is going to require me to use one of the random internet streams floating around?
A good watch if you have 22 minutes to spare! I searched around a bit and haven't seen anything posted, so apologies in advance if I missed it.
Slow day on the board to be posting CBS Sports links, but Michigan checks in at #9 in Jerry Palm's preseason rankings. The real reason I posted this is that it includes a strength of schedule ranking. Amongst top 25 rated teams, the B1G members have the top four toughest schedules.
Teams of note (SOS in parethesis):
3. Alabama (46)
9. Michigan (3)
12. Wisconsin (44)
14. Michigan State (2)
15. Ohio State (5)
20. Nebraska (6)
27. Notre Dame (1)
Palm's rankings are produced by his own computer formula, but I find it highly ironic that the SEC's power teams, who are perceived to face much more daunting schedules, lag behind the B1G in SOS ranking on an SEC-slanted network.
CBS sports' College Football Page has as their first top headline:
"Ohio St.-Michigan for home-and-home in '14-15"
Which I thought was a good plan considering we're such big rivals.
Sadly, it's only a link to the newly declared MSU-Oregon series. I can't imagine this makes anyone in Spartyland happy....
Didn't see this posted anywhere else...
Rodriguez available to caddie
Former West Virginia coach on bag for friend at Greenbrier Classic Monday
By Jim Workman
Assistant Managing Editor
WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS — He may be out of work until his television career as a football analyst with CBS Sports begins this fall.
But former West Virginia University and University of Michigan head football coach Rich Rodriguez knows how to spend his idle time.
He’s in town for The Greenbrier Classic.
Monday, he actually caddied for his friend Dave Alvarez in a Pro-Am golf event on The Old White TPC.
“Some of my good buddies knew that I needed work,” he said with a grin. “I work pretty cheap right now.
“I don’t know how I’ll do (as a caddie),” he said just before the round began. “I’m sweating already. I’ll probably get fired after about six holes.
“I had a chance to come down here for a couple of days. I’m getting ready to go to Oklahoma to do a TV shoot with (Sooners head football coach) Bob Stoops. I wanted to be around another day and see the facility and hang out with my friends.
“It's going to be fun.”
