did he say balls?!?!? oh, I think maybe you were referring to the never ending stream of 'fuck's . As in hey fucking mr. fucking michael fucking rosenberg, get your fucking head out of your fucking ass and stop fucking being a fucking fucktard.
Unverified Voracity Assures You Your Shirt Is Coming
They are coming. If you ordered a Bo shirt and are wondering where the hell it is, 1) sorry about the delay—Rich Robots recently switched print shops—and 2) the shirts should start shipping either today or early next week, so you should have them shortly.
Sweet. The new hockey jerseys are pretty cool:
The Hoover Street Rag points out that the white home jersey is a virtual replica of Michigan’s uniforms when Red Berenson was skating for the team instead of coaching it. Michigan Hockey Net confirms that Michigan plans to have small numbers under the school name, much like Red.
Lame. Awful Announcing has your ABC/ESPN coverage teams for 2008. One bleah development:
- Jesse Palmer is in the booth instead of Doug Flutie on Thursday nights along with Chris Fowler, Craig James and Erin Andrews.
- Flutie will still be on the ABC Studio show with John Saunders and James.
Flutie was really good last year. I don’t think The Bachelor will live up to that high standard. Everything else is basically the same as it was last year—Paul Maguire continues to pollute the Nessler-Griese duo.
One potential change: did Ron Franklin get swanky games last year? He’s doing prime-time ABC games this year.
Also lame but in a more literal sense. The exact words that came from Rodriguez’s mouth about Zirbel:
“It is a knee injury. It is pretty significant. We are not even hopeful that he will be able to return this year. We are just waiting to see how he responds to surgery and when they get in there and do an arthroscopic surgery, then we will have more answers on that.”
And hey, John Ferrara could start!
“I think it is a good move and he is going to be battling for a starting job at guard by maybe by the first game.”
What does Ferrara think about that?
The move caught Ferrara a bit by surprise because he had no offensive line background aside from playing a bit of tight end in high school.
"I'm getting used to it now and working on my technique," said the 6-foot-4, 280-pound Ferrara. "I'm just trying to memorize everything I can. The one thing I think is I'm very coachable."
Carty suggests there is “panic in the streets” because of this; I suggest that if the panic is only in the streets gazebos, playgrounds, and all variety of enclosed spaces have a lot of catching up to do; the WLA notes previous unlikely triumphs of the will.
Some guys are back. Brown and Minor resumed practicing; Donovan Warren was held out of practice but that was only precautionary, and Marcus Witherspoon should be back on campus shortly:
The Courier-Post Defensive Player of the Year, Witherspoon confirmed Thursday afternoon that he did return home to Atlantic City and missed a week of workouts. The freshman linebacker was scheduled to return to the Ann Arbor campus today and continue with football-related activities, also stating that his leave was excused by the Michigan football staff.
Oddly, Witherspoon says not to believe the “rumors” his departure was related to academics. Source of those rumors: Rich Rodriguez directly stating Witherspoon had a Clearinghouse issue.
As far as a potential redshirt:
"There's no harm in redshirting," Witherspoon said. "It would just give me an extra year and I really don't mind."
So there you go.
The children! Notre Dame’s Jon Tenuta is unsparing with the swearing:
I await 400 newspaper columns decrying this. (Via EDSBS.)
Etc.: Matt Hinton, nee Sunday Morning Quarterback, has been redubbed “Dr. Saturday” and unleashed on the unsuspecting public by Yahoo; if you have Time Warner cable OSU’s AD suggests you flee screaming.
the white hockey jerseys are pimp
white jersey with the #9 in stores, i would take out a loan to buy it.
Spoon. Showing the brains.
I think it was a miscommunication between his school and the clearinghouse. he didn't have the right number of 'core class' credits or some crap like that. But internet rumormongers started saying he was dumb or that he failed some classes, or that he didn't have a high enough test score. All of those would be false.
and it took them until the end of august to get it figured out?
the ncaa screwing something up suprises you?
I'm surprised they figured it out by august!
I forgot about my Bo shirt - now, I am sooooooo stoked to get it soon!
is an asshat. He and Tony Siragusa need to be prohibited from opening up their mouths on television.
OOOOF! Those whites are dull. Come on, adidas
Bill Simmons once wrote very highly of Palmer's color-man abilities, something along the lines of "holy shit, not only can he speak in sentences but they are, unlike the majority of dudes in this job, informative and interesting." I'm guessing that his promotion just means ABC caught on.
Didn't Paul Maguire usually get stuck on the cart on the sidelines by the end of the season last year? I had assumed it was because the crew was sick of him in the booth and they liked to see him get rained on. It's possible I saw this during one game and errantly applied the idea to the second half of the season.
You may also remember Maguire from broadcasting places such as inside the scoreboard at Ohio Stadium.
are just outstandingly awesome. i would totally get a custom order Berenson jersey.
sorry to be picky but they're sweaters not jerseys.
refrigerators ice boxes?
From Wikipedia: "A hockey jersey, traditionally called a sweater (due to it originally being made from sweater material, such as wool), is a piece of clothing worn by hockey players to cover the upper part of their bodiies."
1. This is Michigan.
2. Red would call it a sweater, not a jersey.
I always refer to movies as "Moving Pictures".
