"It's not about last year or who's here or who's isn't here," says your head coach. "It's about getting out here and competing and seeing who is here, and that's where we're gonna go."
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....
