|3 days 19 hours ago||Not entirely neutral||
Michigan plays there every year. Remember it's where the Mets hold spring training. And, of course, the Mets are owned by Fred Wilpon, the benefactor for whom the Wilpon Complex is named.

Lloyd getting the handful of seconds put back on the clock against Penn State leading to "Touchdown Manningham". It was the right call, but all too often, especially a decade ago, the seconds aren't added.

I thought BYU had an internal rule prohibiting playing sports on Sunday. While that's not an issue for football, most other sports do schedule Sunday games and for some of the minor sports, playing on Sunday is a near necessity.

Not going to happen, but if you're looking for rooting interests to make it happen. Root for both NJIT and EMU. They both have winning records right now and with a hot streak, both could wind up with 20 wins.

One reason LeVert goes is the health issue. He's now been hurt twice. If he goes now, he's going to get first round money. If he comes back, there are probably two scenarios: he plays great and gets more money than he will this year; or he hurts his foot again and becomes a huge question mark from an NBA perspective.

1. 24-12 (I worked for ABC that day and then was Sports Night Editor at the Daily.) 2. Mets win 1969 WS (I went to the Mets first home game ever). 3. 1998 Rose Bowl (nuff said). 4. Rumeal Robinson hits the free throws to beat Seton Hall. 5. Mets win 1969 NL East (again I was the Sports Night Editor; listened to the game on KMOX out of St. Louis; Harry Caray with the play-by-play; Rod Kanehl** as guest color commentator; Caray rooted for the Mets during the game and was subsequently relieved of his duties by the Cardinals, leading the way to his resurgence as a Chicago icon. Headline on the back page of the Daily: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Cellar. **Kanehl was an original 1962 Met

Maryland had not been very good until the last couple of years, ironically thanks to players recruited by Erik Bakich. It speaks volumes that Bakich left Maryland, then in the ACC (a power baseball conference) for Michigan in the B1G (not considered a power baseball conference). That said, Maryland has most of the players back from a team that was one win away from the College World Series.

Not sure it matters, but the loss to NJIT isn't looking as bad as it once did. They're 15-10 and have a good chance to finish 19-10 and head to the NIT.

I think every alum in the DC area is trying to get tix for the Maryland game. I've been working on getting tix through the Maryland side of things and am hopeful. I fear that there will not be loads of tix available from Michigan sources (if the OSU experience last season is any predictor). I wish they'd just move the game to M&T so they could sell another 25,000 tickets.

Another NYTimes article on Barwis and his affiliation with the Mets: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/02/04/sports/mets-players-pay-for-off-season-training-at-team-complex.html?ref=baseball The article notes that many Met players are starting to swear by Barwis, but the interesting part is that they're paying for the training, not the Mets.

NJIT loss may not hurt as much as we thought at the time. They've won seven of their last eight, and could approach 20 wins by the end of the season. And, EMU is 13-7 and won by 37 over Ohio U tonight.

Indeed, a staff with Durkin, Anderson and Mattison sure seemed to be a little too chief heavy. I wouldn't be surprised if Anderson was leveraging his connections with Harbaugh to get a raise in Palo Alto and Harbaugh knew all along that he likely wasn't coming.

If Marrow accepts his offer, he might be the Special Teams guy in addition to Tight Ends.

I wouldn't be surprised if there's a big press conference on Monday or Tuesday at which the entire staff is announced. By then, all college games save Oregon/OSU will be over so coaches will either have said yes or not.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||The UAB qb, Cody Clements,||
The UAB qb, Cody Clements, passed for over 2000 yards and completed something like 65% of his passes. He's also originally from California. That's the good news. Less good is the fact that he started at Washington State, wound up at Cerritos College, I believe, and then transferred to UAB. I'm not certain if he'd have one or two years of eligibility left.

Even if Rosen signed something and couldn't opt out. He could transfer and sit out a season, which in the case of a qb might happen anyway.
