It's a "Nike USA Retro Jersey - Dark Obsidian." Did an image search for u.s. soccer shirts and that looked right.

Can't think of anyone I enjoy seeing lose more than Kiffin. (although would be tough figuring out who to root against if Chizik ever faces Kiffin)

Denard has the quickest first step of any college football player I can recall seeing. No firm idea about top speed, but I'd be surprised if Braxton is faster.
|36 weeks 4 days ago||How do you figure UM is two||
How do you figure UM is two rungs below OSU? Buckeye DBs have spent a lot of time during the first two games arguing on the field about who was responsible for blown coverage. The pass rush has been nothing special either. If Denard consistently hits open receivers (there will likely be many), you probably win that game. (Different story if the secondary figures out what it's doing over the next 9 games.)

I'm hoping he gets bored and accepts $10 million/year from Dan Snyder to coach the Skins when he inevitably fires Shanahan in two years.

I was curious to learn what Michigan fans were writing about OSU/UM the week before the 2006 game. Google sent me here.

Chris Grovich (Black Shoe Diaries) has done a great job explaining to the yahoos that they are in fact yahoos. I wouldn't write off the entire school.
|2 years 2 weeks ago||"Upside"||
"This guy has a lot of upside." I blame Mel Kiper who doesn't think "potential" is sexy enough. Sometimes he even forgets the meaning of his own bs sports cliche and refers to a player's "potential upside."
Another annoyance: sportswriters, especially at espn, who obsessively write "impact" when they mean "effect" (or "affect"). You kids, who need to get off my lawn, probably don't find that irritating.

I agree. OSU fans fans who say Tressel's nondisclosure is out of character have forgotten his inexplicable incuriosity about allegations that a booster paid Ray Isaac.
Tressel wouldn't go out of his way to commit a violation, but he isn't as scrupulous as he should be about fixing a problem after he's learned about it.

If it's a significant factor, then you'd expect to see scoring by Michigan's opponents clustered in the 2nd and 4th quarters. That happened in 10 out of 12 games (compared to 5, 6 and 8 games for MSU, OSU and Wisconsin, respectively).
Ziff72's point about Oregon led me to check their stats. Time-per-drive is 2.08 (even lower then UM), and they gave up more points in the 2nd/4th quarters in only 5 games. Bad news for my theory unless Oregon's defense is composed of mutants who get stronger the longer they're on the field.

Assuming he didn't create the graphic at the top of this article, I'd love to see what he came up with.
|2 years 26 weeks ago||"incredibly obvious trends"||
Iowa minus Stanzi very nearly beat OSU last year. Because I exaggerated the significance of that data point, I doubted your conclusion that they were "lucky" last year.
I have learned my lesson: do not quarrel with Brian Cook when he brandishes charts and numbers.
|2 years 26 weeks ago||Musburger is||
dreadful, but is he pro-OSU? He seems to me to be more of a micro-bandwagon jumper: Whoever is doing something well at that particular moment in a game is "underrated," magnificent, possibly the best ever, etc. He's an engine of phony situational enthusiasm.
Maybe you're right, and I haven't noticed because I try to tune him out.
|2 years 31 weeks ago||alternative hypo||
OSU has been overrated all season, and probably wouldn't have deserved to be in the MNC game even if they had run the table. What would a third straight MNC loss do to OSU recruiting?
Maybe another win like this year's Rose Bowl victory over Oregon helps OSU recruiting more than a loss in the bigger game.
(Yes, I'm hunting frantically for silver linings after the Wisconsin game, but I think my reasoning is valid.)

OP: "Denard is the single most exciting player to watch..."
I completely agree, and thought so from the middle of the season's first game. Hope he stays healthy.
It's pretty cool that OSU and UM have managed to recruit stellar 'dual threat' qb talent like Terrelle Pryor, Braxton Miller, Denard Robinson and Devin Gardner in such a narrow span of time. Too bad only one guy can carry the ball.
"ball don't lie"

Alabama looks more solid than Ohio State to me. Sorry if that's uselessly impressionistic.
Pryor has improved immensely, but he still takes a lot of time to make decisions. What's impressed me most about Denard Robinson isn't his speed, but how quickly/decisively he exploits openings.
