was that the level of pure talent in the Pac 8/10 was far greater than they thought. I was in school at U-M off and on from '71 until '82, and virtually all of the Michigan fans I knew back then adhered to the notion that the players on the west coast were sissy finesse players who couldn't stand up to the physical toughness of midwestern football.
The reality was that at one point in the late 1980s, USC had more alumni playing in the NFL than Michigan and OSU combined. That's obviously long since been rectified but the imbalance was real back then, and it had consequences in the Rose Bowl.
And the reason was the huge demographic changes created by the explosive growth of population in California (not to mention the rest of the Sun Belt) after WWII. That's why the Big Ten dominated the Rose Bowl up until the early 1960s, when the population growth on the west coast began manifesting itself in the early college age cohort of the Baby Boomers.

From a Michigan Daily interview with Canham:
TMD: Going back to Paterno, what happened that kept him
DC: I met Paterno, I think, on Dec. 5 in Pittsburgh. I was on my way to New York to go to the Hall of Fame dinner and Joe met me at a hotel. He’d only been coach (at Penn State) for three years, so he was just another great young coach in those days. Paterno was not as well known as some of the other guys that I was talking to. I’ve known Joe for 40 years and I like him very much personally — (at the time), he was going through his first bowl game that he’d ever gone to. He said, “Don, let me think about it, I’ll call you in three days” — so I went to New York and when I was talking to people, Bo’s name kept coming up. Three days later, Joe called me and said, “Don, I can’t make a decision until after the bowl,” and I told him I couldn’t wait until January to hire a football coach for Michigan. The next week, I hired Schembechler. He’s the one that impressed me the most at that time.

The Lions drafted WR Earl McCulloch out of USC in 1968.
As a member of the USC Track & Field team, McCulloch was the NCAA 110 Yard High Hurdle champion in 1967 and 1968, the NCAA 55 yard indoor high hurdle champion in 1968, and was the lead leg sprinter of the USC NCAA 4 X 110 yard sprint relay team in 1967 and 1968. The USC Trojan sprint relay team (McCulloch, Fred Kuller, Simpson, and Lennox Miller – in order) set a 4 X 110 yard sprint relay world record (38.6 sec.) in the 1967 NCAA Track & Field Championships in Provo, Utah on June 17, 1967. In the era of metric-distance sprint world records, this world record still stands today and is likely not to be broken.
And yes, that would be O.J. Simpson running the third leg of that 4x110.
McCulloch started out with a bang with the Lions, getting NFL Rookie of the Year honors in '68, but unfortunately he eventually acquired the sarcastic nickname Earl "Stone Fingers" McCulloch because of his propensity for dropping catchable passes. He was out of the league after the '74 season.

It's stupid to put people into prison for pot. It's equally stupid to pretend that young athletes who need to maintain a level of physical and mental conditioning that we can't even imagine reaching ourselves can get regularly baked without affecting that conditioning.

This flavor map might be useful for comparison:
The 18 year Glenlivet is at the opposite end of the map, and if I read the map legend correctly, its distillation doesn't involved the use of peat, which leads to a different flavor character.

Having a dominating interior DL who can collapse the pocket would have made a critical difference against Utah and MSU, especially since those games were so close and their offenses weren't exactly marching up and down the field against us to begin with.
As for OSU, I didn't say that his presence would have led to victory, but I do believe that with him in the lineup—especially with Glasgow out already—the game would not have been the blowout it was.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||this seems weird... Why would they name it after Gordie Howe?||
So, you've chosen the name "PeterKlima," but you can't understand why anybody would be in favor of naming an NHL arena in Detroit after Gordie Howe.

|6 weeks 2 days ago||Speaking of hamburger||
Gadsby was famous for having a mug that was criss-crossed with over 600 stitches acquired in the course of playing 20 years in the NHL, all without a helmet, mask, or shield of any sort. He was one of my sports heroes along with Howe, Delvecchio, and Sawchuk.
Here's another account of the Howe-Fontinato fight:
"When later in the game Shack was in a scrap with Detroit's Red Kelly, Howe joined the fight to help out his teammate Kelly and put Shack in his place when Fontinato came looking for him. Fontinato wasted no time in unleashing a fury of punches on Howe.
Unfortunately for Fontinato, Howe remained conscious and was now incensed. He grabbed Fontinato's sweater with one hand and fired back repeatedly with the other. Howe connected with his first punch, which stopped Fontinato in his tracks.
Howe's arm was described as "working like a piston" and the sound of his fist hitting Fontinato face again and again in rapid fire made a permanent impression on those who heard it - as well as Fontinato's face - with most descriptions of the blows comparing it to the sound of an axe chopping wood.
Detroit's Lefty Wilson was quoted as saying "With every blow you could hear something break - squish, squish. Finally (the Rangers) Andy Bathgate jumped in and stopped it."
Howe described the incident in his own understated way, "He was coming like a madman. It took me a while to get the gloves off and then things were busy."
Fontinato was left with a severely broken nose, now located a fair distance from it's original location. One of the linesmen described it as the worst beating he had ever seen anyone take, which came as a shock to all, as Fontinato had reportedly yet to have lost a fight, including having defeated Rocket Richard and Fern Flaman.
Fontinato actually finished the game, but needed surgery to get his face back in working order, while Howe had actually dislocated a finger against Fontinato's skull while suffering a cut over one eye."
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Howe bore more similarity to Ali than you might think||
"That evening at Madison Square Garden, Fontinato took a break from reading his press clippings to charge into a fracas involving Red Kelly and Eddie Shack behind New York’s net. Howe, who had intervened on Kelly’s behalf, noticed the blur rushing towards him, recognized it as Fontinato, and ducked a punch aimed at his head. Then, as Howe later described it, “that honker of his was right there, and I drilled it. That first punch was what did it. It broke his nose a little bit.”
Observers recalled Howe grabbing Fontinato’s jersey with his left hand, then using his right hand to deliver a stream of vicious uppercuts–”whop, whop, whop, just like someone chopping wood,” said one player quoted in Life magazine, which devoted three pages to Fontinato’s dismantling. Millions of readers were treated to photos of the humbled Fontinato swathed in bandages. In as violent a half-minute as ever seen inside a prize ring, Howe had broken Fontinato’s nose, dislocated his jaw, and destroyed his ego and reputation."

Nowhere in the article does Politi state that "Rutgers defeats Harbaugh" or anything close to that. In fact, considering the lunkhead comments Politi has made in the recent past about Harbaugh, he is surprisingly complimentary to JH in this new article.
"Harbaugh is the best showman in college sports right now, and make no mistake, he put on a hell of a show during his camp"
"Harbaugh's big New Jersey invasion turned out to be yet another positive development in a growing list for Rutgers lately."
"I mean this sincerely: Rutgers fans should stop trolling Harbaugh and send him a fruit basket instead."
"I watched Harbaugh for the full time that he was on the Paramus Catholic field, and he never stopped working."
"If it was all an act, well, it was a pretty good one. Again, while I think he's a self promoter who would make P.T. Barnum proud, I do think there is another factor at work here. He actually enjoys the interaction with the young athletes. Oh, and he's a little crazy.
Crazy, and when it comes to generating buzz for his program, brilliant. Harbaugh has managed to become a national storyline during June, arguably the quietest month for the sport. He has Nick Saban pounding a podium and all of the SEC suddenly demanding oversight."

We'd already been engaged for a year, but this was the first football game I'd taken her to.
The 9-1 and #4 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes invade Michigan Stadium to play the 9-1 and #5 ranked Michigan Wolverines in another titanic clash between Bo Schembechler and Woody. The winner captures the Big Ten championship and a trip to the Rose Bowl. Michigan was ranked #1 in the country for four weeks during the season, with the only blemish a shocking upset loss at Minnesota in October.
Ann Arbor was in a veritable frenzy in the days leading up to the game, and the atmosphere was crackling with tension and drama as we entered the stadium on game day. The game was a tight, low-scoring affair dominated by defense, and the outcome was not settled until the waning minutes.
That didn't matter to her—she was so thoroughly bored by the whole affair that late in the second quarter she pulled a book out of her coat pocket and started reading, and only occasionally looked at the heroic events taking place on the field. She didn't bug me to leave or stop cheering, either—she just did what she wanted to do.
If she's bored, she isn't going to sit and whine—she's smart, independent, self-sufficient, and takes care of things herself. It'll be 37 years this August.

"On April 15, 2005, Gricar went missing under mysterious circumstances and has not been heard from since.
Gricar was elected district attorney of Centre County in 1985. He was re-elected four times before announcing that he would not run for re-election in the 2005 campaign.
Gricar was reported missing to authorities after failing to return home from a road trip. His car was found in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, with his cell phone inside, and his laptop computer was found in the adjacent Susquehanna River; other than that, no trace of Gricar has been found. When he had been missing for over six years with no trace of his whereabouts, Centre County authorities declared Gricar legally dead on July 25, 2011."

I think your scenario is the one that makes the most sense, at least based on what we "know."
From what I've read, Sandusky and Paterno were pretty close, and it's very probable that Paterno was well aware of Jerry's father Arthur and his 30 years of working with young people in Pennsylvania. It's hardly uncommon for people to react with denial and disbelief when confronted with assertions that somebody they know and respect is actually a depraved criminal, and I can easily envision Paterno saying in 1971 "What? No fucking way. Jerry's a standup guy." and thinking that will be the last of it.
Once he's done that, and more evidence then comes to light supporting the basic original allegation, Paterno is himself now on the hook in terms of culpability. Obviously he makes a colossal fuckup decision every step of the way, but if he had done the right thing by 1976, he could have fallen on his sword with a mea culpa, saying in his worst nightmares he could never have imagined that Sandusky could be capable of such acts, and he takes full responsibility for not dealing with it in 1971, etc etc etc. Offering his resignation would have been the right thing to do, and the PSU administration could have either accepted it, or let him stay on with some penalties. Either way, the situation would have been dealt with then.
Of course the worst crimes were those committed by Sandusky himself, but the four-decade coverup is a very close second, considering how crucial it was to enabling Sandusky's behavior.
The even more horrible scenario is one in which Paterno not only knew about Sandusky's behavior all along but actively approved of it, but I've read nothing to suggest that was ever the case. I think in this case it was old-fashioned moral cowardice, which is evil enough.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Something I've been wondering about||
In 1977, Jerry Sandusky founded The Second Mile, a non-profit charity serving Pennsylvania underprivileged and at-risk youth. After Sandusky retired as assistant coach at Penn State, he continued working with The Second Mile at Penn State, maintaining an office at Penn State until 2011. He met his molestation victims through The Second Mile; they were participating in the organization.
Jerry's father Arthur served in the field of youth service programs for over 30 years, mostly as director of the Brownson House in Washington, Pennsylvania, a community recreation center for children. There, he founded the Pennsylvania Junior Wrestling program and created junior basketball, volleyball, boxing and football programs for the Brownson House.
