A nice read.
But, you know, as first career starts go, it wasexceptional. Starting from his own two on the Wolverines' first possession, Robinson accounted for 72 of 98 yards on a marathon touchdown drive; on the second possession, he pulled it down for the last 32 yards of a 77-yard drive to put Michigan up 14-0. By the end of the afternoon, he'd taken all but one snap, hit 19 of 22 passes with a touchdown and no interceptions, set a school record for a quarterback with 198 yards rushing and obliterated any semblance of the simmering controversy with Forcier or true freshman Devin Gardner. Basically, he was the best possible version of the all-purpose nightmare that had Michigan fans brimming with nervous optimism after making a move for Forcier's job in the spring. Obviously, it's Robinson's job for now.
I find it kind of funny that this week's "sleeper to win the Big East" is now a "Big East also-ran".
Funny all of the journalists that were so quick to rip this team now jumping on the bandwagon.
So, let me get this straight: Carty quits the A2 News before it goes under, goes to law school, and suddenly resurfaces with the newspaper job he probably wanted all the time?
He couldn't even manage his own blog. This must be freelance. He couldn't have bombed out of Toledo law school so fast.
Yeah, there is no way this is a real gig. Carty was substandard when he was at the AA News, if he got a job at the Times then journalism really is dead
He's almost certainly stringing for the NYT. They have nowhere near enough staff writers to cover all the important college games (even on a day without that many important games) so they hire freelancers - stringers - to cover the game. They do the same thing in a lot of places. In more serious news, their staff reporters do almost as much managing of stringers as they do reporting on their own. (Dexter Filkins _The Forever War_ has some nice sections about how this system functioned in Iraq.)
And on top of that, his piece in Saturday's paper (nyt) about the renovated Big House, reeked of him trying to insert his hatred of Michigan.
Carty's freelanced for the NY Times before, so this isn't that surprising. I've always liked his writing and enjoyed his blog.
Holy close camera angles, Batman!
Hmmm that New Englander was upset that the Huskies were 3 pt dogs. Ooops.
