I GET IT
Maisel compares Texas A&M's tradition to Sparty's, and then shows why their move to the SEC makes sense but does kill the rivalries in the Big 12.
From yesterday's 3-point stance:
2. Nebraska fifth-year senior guard Keith Williams is a graphic design major with a minor in art history. His main interest is the early Renaissance, even if he has never seen any works in person. “There are a lot of (trips) offered, but because of my obligations with football ... ” Williams said. He didn’t consider asking coach Bo Pelini for time off in the summer to visit the great museums of Europe. “I want to see that reaction,” Williams said. “He would look at me and say, ‘Are you serious?’”
Some Michigan fan should call Mr. Williams to let him know summer workouts are voluntary, not obligatory.
This morning I'm listening to the ESPN college football podcast on the way to work, and at the very tail end something jumped out at me.
Ivan Maisel and Gene Wojciechowski were the two doing the show, and at the end of the program they were discussing which schools had overrated or underrated gameday experiences on their campuses.
Gene Wojo's "overrated" was Michigan. In short, when describing Ann Arbor on a gameday, he said, "Eh."
(It's the October 26th show, strangely listed second from the top).
Usually both of these guys give Michigan high marks when it's due, but perhaps this turn of events is due to the Rich Rod era??
He acknowledged that the Big House is cool to be in, but he claimed there was very little going on around the campus and the stadium. I'm not sure what game he was at, but he must have been at the wrong stadium.
Is this a wake-up call to the staleness of Ann Arbor on gameday, or a time when all us Michigan fans have to spell out all the great things that go on around town. Let's hear some great gameday stories and show Gene Wojo that we're just as good as LSU, Auburn, and all the other schools he mentions!
