At press time, Harbaugh had sent Michigan’s athletic department an envelope containing a heavily annotated seating chart, a list of the 63,000 seat views he had found unsatisfactory, and a glowing 70-page report on section 25, row 12, seat 9, which he claimed is “exactly what the great sport of football is all about.”
CFN makes me larff
Aside from the just plain stupid things they write, and their terrible grammar, and their lack of a spell checker, CFN just makes me shake my head and cross my eyes with most of their material.
Right now they've got a roundtable discussion going on with such luminaries Dennis Dodd and Teddy Greenstein. I don't even know who Teddy Greenstein is. And Dennis Dodd is the stupidest sportswriter to ever pick up a pen.
Meanwhile they've got matt zemek and dick criminal having a competition on who can be the most worthless writer ever. At least that Peter fiutak guy is funny once in a while, but since it seems he never passed 3rd grade english, you can't be sure if its intentional. Seriously, the dude leaves out words in the middle of sentences, uses the exact opposite word of what he means, and has no command over simple words such as "a, the, and, but, to, with, etc., etc. " I can't count the number of times I've been reading one of his COW's but stopped halfway when I just got sick of the grammar mistakes.
And then there's the flawed logic. They've got a ND preview up saying the line should be much improved with an extra year of experience. Right, sure. Because 4 years of experience for Sullivan and John Carlson and a year for Sam Young going into last year helped them become soooooo much better. If they're still being coached by the same morons who turned them into the worst offensive line EVAR, then I'm going to guess it won't matter who is playing QB, just like it didn't matter last year.
They say that Clausen will be better because he's healthy. So I guess that means that Weis would rather lose games with an unhealthy QB so that he can get experience while at the same time exposing him to possible further injury or complications to the unhealed one because he had an eye towards the future??!?!
So let me jump on their tails and make a stupid prediction too. I predict that Charlie Weis will pull a Charlie Weis. He'll forget to teach the line how to block, Clausen will suck, and Weis will pull him in favor of the hot new recruit. Clausen will throw a tantrum, transfer in the middle of the season to Tennessee, where he and Mallet can finish out their rivalry in the SEC.
are there any good ones out there? All of them seem to be intent on presenting the "your favorite team sucks and heres why" article. They are so scared of being called a homer that they will villify the home team.
National Sportswriters aren't any better. They either state the obvious or cling to a pet theory that takes Brian all of five minutes to debunk.
I cannot remember the last time a read an article in the newspaper and thought it was well written.
"6. Make your case why the BCS is better than a playoff (without using the “every week is a playoff” cliché).
Stewart Mandel: Because a playoff would turn the sport into a facsimile of the NFL, where, instead of rewarding greatness over the course of an entire season, it's about whoever gets hot over a three-game stretch. See: the New York Giants."
Because if 16 teams out of 120 made the playoffs you know some of them got in with a 6-6 record. Math. F(*&^& MATH! F)&*(^*( LEARN IT YOU F*&^*& IDIOT SPORTSWRITERS!!!!
In the NFL 12 of 32 teams make the playoffs so the last few to get in always have 9-7 or sometimes 8-8 marks. Look at last year's top 16, do you see any teams that were 7-5 going into the postseason? NO YOU DON'T MOTHER F*C***! because no one in the top 25 had more than 4 losses.
