OT--Millen deserves to lose yet another job

OT--Millen deserves to lose yet another job

Throughout the game Millen described the actions and mistake of 18-22 yr old college kids as "pathetic", "embarrassing", "plain awful". I get that sometimes the quality of college football is not top notch but to use words like that to describe the effort and performance of amateur (allegedly) athletes in that manner is completely uncalled for and unprofessional in my opinion. It's hard enough to suffer through a game that he's calling but this kind of stuff should be embarrassing to BTN and should force them to take a hard look at whether he should be representing their brand. I don't know how to mount pressure on BTN but it should be done.

Decent games so I figured I'd create a thread...unlike myself, some people flip around during Michigan games. Here you go.

Public radio quiz show Wait Wait Don't Tell Me was in Ann Arbor on Thursday. The entire episode can be found here.

For those unfamiliar with the show, one of the games each week features a guest of note getting interviewed and then answering three questions of a theme that's a usually a play on their name or work. The segment is called Not My Job. This week's guest was John U. Bacon.

Below is the link to the JUB segment:

Are you going or are you there? 

Virtual check-in.  I'm so pumped.

I've been living in Korea for eight years so this is my first game since then. And my teenage son's first game since he was a little kid. And with my dad (who was a teacher at Tappen Middle School and got beat by Harbaugh in the students vs. teachers basketball game by - I kid you not - Jim Harbaugh who sank two free throws with one second left to beat those teachers by one point! That's our coach, who yelled for all to hear while he was wating at the free throw line and the teachers were waiting on the bench during a timeout trying to ice him: "Hurry up, I have a game to win!" I kid you not). 

Three generations representing UM on this beautiful fall afternoon in lovely Maryland. Did I mention that we are pumped?

ROLL CALL - Go Blue!
