this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
The 2009 Eastern Michigan at Michigan HD MP4 torrent has been uploaded to MGoVideo. I didn't upload it, I just figured I'd let everyone know since I didn't see a thread on this already.
There is also a DVD version up as well.
I just got done talking with a friend of mine who started for Eastern on Saturday. Apparently the word is, Schmitt's knee injury is career ending. Sad story for a kid who probably had an outside shot at making an NFL roster.
Also, my friend was telling me how loud it was on the field. He said it was very hard to make calls at times because of the noise.
interesting to watch
I was just walking through the EMU Student Center (i.e., their student union) and saw a lovely banner of Coach English and a few of his players. It had these words emblazoned:
"Embrace the Process" - Coach English
(the version I saw had English & the players more prominent and not all the background stuff)
Now, I understand they can't go with something like, "Those Who Stay Will be Champions" (at least not yet) and I can also understand you have to emphasize something that focuses on building up, brick by brick, one of the least successful programs in all of Div 1-A. But couldn't he come up with something just a bit less corporate? It's this kind of bland stuff you see emblazoned on mugs handed out by HR at Initech.
How about, "Nowhere to go but up", "Accentuate the Positive", "1987 Raisin Bowl Champions" or "We are (formerly) Hurons"? Any better ideas for our Washtenaw County neighbors?
I'm headed into Philadelphia this weekend and wanted to make sure I caught the game. Does anyone know of a good Michigan sports bar? I noticed the U of M club goes to Fox and Hound (15th and Spruce), so I'll probably head there, but I wanted to see if anyone could confirm or had a better place.
Thanks and Go Blue.
