This is a very unusual match-up for the Sugar Bowl. This bowl usually has a more southern flavor. These two teams just don't make sense. Just glancing at previous match-ups, Va Tech has been there three times in the past 20 years and played Texas, Auburn, and Florida State. But this is the ever changing era of the BCS, so whatever happens makes sense because it must.
|3 years 34 weeks ago||Interesting match up...||
...between two programs with first year coaches trying to clean up messes left behind by predecessors. The Irony Bowl.
|3 years 34 weeks ago||Cheaper!||
How about you get paid 75 bucks to go??? (Assuming this is legit)
Event Seat-Filler (Indianapolis / Downtown)
Saturday night event in downtown Indianapolis needs seat-fillers. Total number of seat-fillers needed will vary based on crowd.
Must tolerate loud noise and crowds. Must have red or dark green casual clothing to wear. Event will last all evening on Saturday night. All ages, sexes, races, etc.
Please use contact e-mail. Event planner will follow-up with exact details on location for staging of seat-fillers (additional information and instruction provided there).

I think it is unfair to classify that celebration at the end of the game as disrespectful. Clearly it was Michigan players all faking injuries to avoid shaking hands.

Aren't they worried that he will alert Ted Sarniak and then wait months before the Colts find out they should have challenged the play?

This would be unprecedented use of snoke oil

Unrelated, but Khadafi says he will retain his entire cabinet through the next fair and open elections.
|4 years 8 weeks ago||I agree with all, but the||
I agree with all, but the scary thing here is that this is an immature kid who operated in a system that let this go on until it exploded.
Reason I say scary is that he's on the wrong side of a fanbase that has more than its share of fringe idiots. Herbstreit left the state for speaking his opinion. Writers at the school paper have been getting threats for a news story. This kid, whose crime was being sloppier than those before him, is about to get the downfall of the program heaped on his sholders.
Now let's see if "father-figure" Tress and OSU steps up and takes the rightful share blame. Pryor's only why they got caught. He's not a whistleblower or outsider bringing down the OSU machine. He was their marquee player as of a couple days ago - the face of the program facing suspension for violating minor NCAA rules. Now it's all changed. I don't like him. I'm glad he chose OSU. But I can't help but wonder if this kid understands what's about to happen here if someone doesn't step up.
|4 years 12 weeks ago||For the year????||
Suspended for the season at tsio? I didn't read the article, but he must have committed something like high treason? master-minded a mass terror plot? Email forwarding?
|4 years 13 weeks ago||Personally, I don't mind this||
Personally, I don't mind this wound slowly festering into a giant sweater-vest shaped scar on that program. Awaiting NCAA punishment is a punishment in itself. Maybe not the big H-bomb some expect, but it is a slow, damaging erosion.
As we know, uncertainity hurts recruiting as bad as anything.
|4 years 19 weeks ago||Real damage control||
Sorry, I don't buy this has anything to do with satisfying the NCAA. That shameful presser was so condescending and arrogant, OSU believes they yanked the NCAA's chain enough that the are GOOD. Scott free!
This has everything to do with a coach trying to save a little face in the locker room before Spring practice begins. Tressel threw the Tat Five under the bus and is backpedaling before things behind the scenes spin out of control. There's already been murmurs of upset families wondering about the fairness of coach getting less than players. This is how coaches lose entire teams. This has nothing to do with the NCAA - Gene Smith already hit the "sweet spot."
Just my opinion, but I trust nothing coming out of Columbus as anymore than cheap PR. This is no different.
|4 years 20 weeks ago||I thought||
I thought it was a beautiful thing. I mean Ohio State's coach had a press conference in March with the opener, "So there was this federal drug probe..." And then rambles along like the last days of Lenny Bruce going on about getting caught in the system, victimized...blah, blah, blah. I hope Coach Hoke goes on a tour of Ohio and eats baked goods in the home of every target and shows them the difference between Michigan and Ohio State. I love it. Bring on the NCAA investigation, the two games, the five games, this will go on and on....
|4 years 20 weeks ago||If you read on||
I heard he can stay coach, but is no longer being considered for Two and a Half Men. Too controversial.
(I know. A week two Sheen joke. Easy on the negs please)
|4 years 24 weeks ago||Well done MgoPosters!||
+1 to everyone for avoiding the obvious Michael Vick jokes so far. Still too soon.

I think this scenario has already played out in reverse. RR had much more support than dissent when hired. He had my support. Dissent goes away with success. But as the evidence grew against him, the support has waned. Rich is a good guy and he's paid very well to be the guy who gets blamed. He's not the victim of a system stacked against him.
|4 years 29 weeks ago||Mike Singletary's salary||
Mike Singletary made the same salary as RR. Do the 49ers spend much more on another first time NFL coach? SF has other coach options if they have to spend more money anyway. Besides, Michigan has some advantages over NFL even if money might not be one of them.
|4 years 30 weeks ago||what about...||
might be controversial but what about Rex Ryan to come in and help out with kickers? And part-time film coordinator.
|4 years 30 weeks ago||What about...||
Mike Haywood? Undefeated at Pittsburgh. No points allowed. Firm handed.
|4 years 30 weeks ago||Truthfully...||
I got panicked over this for about a minute, but that's the appropriate response. It's a fair question but it can't be easy to give 'what if' type responses right now.
|4 years 30 weeks ago||Perhaps I have missd this but||
Perhaps I have missed this but is Gardner's medical redshirt a done deal? Last I knew it had to be applied for. Or is it a formality due to his reported injury and lack of playing time?
|4 years 30 weeks ago||Alternative||
Supposedly you can turn on the "Dark Side of the Moon" and sync it up to the "Wizard of Oz." Might work for the Rose Bowl too?
