So, is this rumor more reliable than previous rumor putting us in Gator Bowl? Hate the late start.

Meyer was asked last night when he decided to suspend Hall. After a long pause, he said "a while ago". One, he didn't decide a while ago. He decided after a week of media scrutiny. If he intended to suspend him, announce Monday and move on. And, B, he needed Hall to be dressed and ready if Elfking went down . No way he wants to play a third string lineman or shift line in championship game. It'd be interesting to ask Hall when he knew he'd miss the game. I bet he knew when the clock hit zero.

For those of us in Columbus, The Football Fever provides more delicious tears. Players, coaches, media all shell shocked. Clearly banked on NC game. Urbz recruiting from the podium, "loves these kids so much." Classic.

Was it over when the German's bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no! And it ain't over now. Cause when the goin get's tough...

No doubt. Haven't seen a game like this since Sunday...

DirecTV guide in Columbus is listing the KState v TX game on schedule tonight. Columbus is clearly in Michigan territory on ABC coverage map. Help?!

Video doesnt' look that bad, but he still hit a woman. Regardless of Urban's response to this, it will shape his future at Ohio and the future of the kids he "leads". If his punishment is too severe, he may scare away other talented kids with a tendancy towards trouble. If his punishment is too lenient, he'll continue to sign these kids, but will develop a culture in which kids aren't afraid to step out of line. I, personally, like that Coach Hoke has dismissed Stonum, suspended Hagerup for a season, suspended Hawthorne and Floyd for the Outback Bowl, etc. I also like that Michigan recruits talented kids with great character. It's an interesting debate - win at all costs v. win with character. I believe this area (central Ohio) won't tolerate regular player arrests in exchange for victories and championships, but we'll see.
Call me old (I'm not that old), but the most disturbing part of that video is dudes watching/pointing/yelling at scantily dressed college girls shaking their asses on a stage. I'd hate to see my daughter on that stage, she ain't going to college. Ever.

As a resident of this town, I have been subjected to many a broadcast by Mindy Drayer. She is, without a question, one of the biggest Bucknut slappies around these here parts. If she says that Hyde made contact with a person, girl or boy, you can flat book it. If it maybe happened, she would have said it didn't. At all. Per Urban's strict discipline guidelines, Hyde will be suspended until Ohio plays a game that matters. Then, and only then, will Carlos Hyde redeem himself in Urban's extraordinarily critical eyes. Just like that Patriot guy did. Just like that.

Ohio does have a 4-star, dual threat type waiting in the wings. They won a head-to-head with Les for JT Barrett, expect him to be the heir to the position when Braxton moves on. So, losing Harris to LSU isn't really a huge blow to their future at QB.

That was Akron. Two sick, one injured. After losing their point guard, this will make the VCU game a straight blows outs.

Yeah, I'd say Rush is a problem. WOOD is usually my radio go to for Michigan games. Can you use BTN2Go? Better to watch than listen.

I was at a meeting last night with Dantonio's brother, Frank. He didn't know anything about Tressel to MSU. He texted one of Marks kids, who didn't know anything about Tressel to MSU. Not sure why he didn't just text Mark. Anyhow, the folks down here are real interested in this story, would easily root for the comeback of the senator. They ain't playing Sparty for two years. Also, Go Blue tonight against Ohio hockey! Anyone else going?

It's like using a sprint parachute to train for a race. I think the B1G teams should benefit when that chute is cut.

The officiating in the Ohio-NW game is flat ridiculous. Both teams hacking the hell out of each other, neither over 50 points with 8 to go. Bilas talked about this trend earlier today. Seems to be hurting the quality of play and the product overall.

This guy has to be the laziest recruiter in football. The folks down here are going bats about flipping commits from PSU, Wisky, Sparty, and, now, Michigan. I keep tell them that if he offers enough kids committed to other schools, he's bound to get a few to flip. Is there any way to track how many committed kids this guy's offered? Didn't he do something similar at Florida? Also, what is he telling these kids to get them to commit despite other scheduled visits? Per the Dispatch, Donovan Munger "reluctantly" committed this week after trying to cancel his visit:

Shit guys, leave this kid alone. He's 17/18 and committed too soon. Period. Let's all take a breath and remember what we were doing at 17/18 years old and, more importantly, how our minds worked. Mine alternated between girls, beer, anat/phys final, football, friends, and advanced calc. If he wants to go to Michigan, he'll go to Michigan. If he wants to go to Ohio, he'll go to Ohio. The path that our favorite college football team travels in the next 4 years won't change dramatically based on the committment of one high school kid. Doesn't matter which one. There are lots of kids that have passed on Michigan in the past and lots that will pass on Michigan in the future. Fergodsake, get some perspective. In the end, all we can hope for is that our coaches do everything they can, with the kids that have chosen to play for them, against the other coaches, whose kids have chosen to play for them. All the speculation and accusation in the world won't change that.

Thanks guys. That was easy. And fast. And positive. I found this while reviewing the list of recruits to make myself feel better after Saturday. And, I do feel better. Still one hell of a class!
|1 year 1 week ago||Honest Question||
Please, please don't neg bomb me into oblivion for this. Please. I did a quick search of the site and didn't see any mention of Logan Tuley-Tillman having interest in TCU, good or bad. A scout alert dated 11/16/12 mentions interest and a possible visit. Alert is paywalled, and I don't pay. So, can anyone, nicely, update me on the validity or lack of validity to this claim? Again, please and thank you. Link below:

Not sure why, but overall, I'd agree that the Ohio fans were relatively welcoming at this year's game. While standing in line for bathrooms, I had reasonable conversations with fans who had actual contributions to make (besides "F Michigan, derp, derp, derp"). The fans sitting around us were pretty nice guys, one of them even "fist bumped" me after Michigan's big plays. On the way out, they did seem a bit more aggressive with victory in hand. A drunk old man told me I'd "better run" to my car. Probably a dick 7 days a week.
One sidenote. I did talk to a Texas fan who's just a big fan of the college game and wanted to see Ohio v. Michigan. He's been to several Oklahoma v. Texas games, along with other big rivalry games. He couldn't believe how angry and aggressive the Ohio fans were towards their guests. I told him they were actually behaving themselves better this year. He couldn't believe it could be much worse. I assured him it could.
And, one question. Another Michigan fan entering the game said that Michigan gave 2000 tickets back to Ohio? I found this hard to believe, maybe because I didn't want to believe our fans wouldn't travel 3 hours with tickets purchased at face value. Anyone else hear this? Also, fergodsakes, let's travel better in two years.

Don't be an asshat, don't take the bait. They will talk shit, some more than others. Overall, their bark is much worse than their bite. I was kicked once, from behind, resulted in bit of a bruise. I always wear maize and blue, any Michigan fan should. Have fun! Go Blue.

The new division alignments are flat pissing on Michigan. If Ohio doesn't play in the B1G championship at least 2 of 3 years, they are grossly underachieving. Every year - Indiana, Rutgers, Maryland, Purdue, and a depleted Penn State. Every year.
|1 year 3 weeks ago||Quick Question||
Is Notre Dame also still in the mix? Cause, I mean, NC game and all. They just seem like a B1G caliber program.

Hoke said he's not gonna play, hasn't come along as far as they'd like. In a pretty folksy way.

Hoke just said Denard is out. So, yeah.

Torg was in trouble before for doing/saying something stupid. During Tresselgate, he "shared" name/hotel/room number of an ESPN investigative reporter in town to dig. Needless, to say (I think), the reporter was harrassed, death threatened, etc. Too bad to see him go, he was a lot more fun to listen to than "The Common Man". When it came to Michigan, they were both over-the-top homers and pretty uninformed. On other topics, there were a few laughs to be had.

Did anyone really think PSU would be terrible this year? They still have good players, recruited by Paterno, and many of the players have been together for several years. Seems like the real damage will be 3-4 years down the road after a few terrible recruiting classes. O'Brien is a good coach with good players. Let's see what happens when he's coaching an FCS team.
