They've changed it. When I click the link it says "...competitors like the Penn State Nittany Lions and newly arrived Maryland Terrapins..."
Eh, same difference.

I wondered if anyone would post about this. I laughed. And then she blew a final jeopardy that was, frankly, a gimme. So I laughed again.

East Carolina University... Go Pirates! Did my undergrad there and grad at Michigan. If those two ever meet in football I don't honestly know who I'll root for.

How very sweep. Tomorrow we complete the trifecta. GO BLUE!!

And unsurprisingly, a brawl ensues. One word, Sparty:

Ski Jumping is definitely my favorite, but unfortunately it doesn't get nearly enough TV coverage (at least not on NBC) because the U.S. rarely has a team, let alone any medal contenders. Hmmm... wonder if I can stream Finnish TV somehow...
Also love the various sledding sports...luge, bobsled, skeleton.
A lot of the winter sports are pretty terrifying, but I think the one that makes me hold my breath the most is the aerials portion of freestyle skiing. Those fools are one wrong move from lifelong paralysis or death.

I was in Innsbruck (last hosted Olympics in 1976) back in 2007 and the thing I most wanted to see was their Olympic Ski jump. I didn't get terribly close to it, but it could be seen pretty well from where I stood. Impressive for sure.

I hope MSU wins. The B10 needs a little perception boost. Lord knows next year only stands to look worse as Rutgers and Maryland (both of whom lost their bowl games) join up.
That said, I'm certainly not going to sit here and actually cheer for them. And I'm not going to boo Stanford. If MSU gets whipped, I will probably laugh hysterically and enjoy bitching about how they embarrassed the conference. Although I won't go all facebook with that shit, since we basically did, too.
As for OSU... the ONLY time I ever hope they win (but again, never actively rooting for them) is if it specifically serves Michigan in some way. To see Urban end his season with two losses would cheer me greatly.

Yeah, neither did I until they just said it during the ND/RU game. Although let's not give ND too much credit.... we gave up that ground this year.

A win, so that we don't give up the winning percentage record to ND (assuming they beat RU).

We also have a h&h with Virginia Tech scheduled. Most years, they're no slouch.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||The whole "exposure" thing is||
The whole "exposure" thing is only good for the program if we win, or at least lose close in an epic thriller. If we go down there and get our asses handed to us again, the only exposure we will have gained is more along the lines of a laughing stock from a weak conference. This type of game should be between two perennial top-10 teams. Here's hoping we make it back to that point over the next three years, otherwise this game could do more harm than good.

So once again, we're giving up a home game to go down to Texas and pad the wallet of Jerry Jones. Great. Just great.

Love the broadcast stylings of Bob Cole. The Keith Jackson of hockey, if you will. Especially love the way he pronounces "Detroit." Will never forget his call on McCarty's slick goal in '97:
("Two nothing Detroiiiit" at about 0:47. LOVE it.)

If all that goes down, I would love to be a fly on the wall at Jim Delaney's house when the new BCS standings come out.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||Polls||
I always find it fun and interesting, once the regular season is over, to go back and look at the pre-season polls and compare them with the final week polls. This year is no different, and maybe it helps (or not?) with the question being posed. Looking at the coaches' poll...
SEC Teams in the Top Ten, Preseason (present ranking in parentheses):
SEC Teams in the Top Ten, Present (preseason ranking in parentheses):
Of note: Not only were both Auburn and Missouri unranked pre-season, but they also weren't even in the "others receiving votes" section. So the championship game will be played by a newbie and a team that was 3-9 last year, both of whom so-called experts thought were irrelevant at the beginning of the year. I don't know if this helps with the OP or not. You could maybe say, "OMG!! There's so much parity in the SEC!!!" Or you could also say that just maybe those vaunted creams of the crop aren't so unbeatable after all. Or maybe it just shows how silly a pre-season poll is. But hey... they got South Carolina exactly right.

Seconded on DBC. Always a top choice for me. Good food, and fine beer.

I'll be there. 18/94. But I'll be sure to park EZ out somewhere. It may be necessary to leave this one early.

I've been hiding out in A2 all along. You guys think how I ended ND '09 was cool, just you wait til Saturday.

I am truly looking forward to attending the Slippery Rock/Mercyhurst game next year in the Big House. I hope the AD has the good sense to make it a freebie for students and season ticket holders, and cheap as dirt for everyone else. We need to give Slippery Rock one hell of a welcome by packing the place.
