NOT TRYING TO INCITE A RIOT HERE

I am wondering if anyone can enlighten me as to the two holding calls that were called againt Michigan opponents in the last two years? 

Any idea what games those holding penalites were called?

I'M NOT TRYING TO BE A SMART ASS HERE.  I'm going to try to find them.

OT: Ole Miss Gets Additional One-Year Bowl Ban, Other Sanctions

Here it is (from an Ole Miss source, not officially from NCAA yet). One additional year for Ole Miss, meaning Shea Patterson and Greg Little, and all other Ole Miss rising juniors, will not be immediately eligible via transfer. Patterson wasn't coming anyways, but all that were still holding out hopes can officially put those to rest.

OT: Mike Leach to Tennessee May Be Happening

OT: Mike Leach to Tennessee May Be Happening

Lots of buzz on Twitter that Tennessee is closing in on Mike Leach. Given the wild last week it seems like he'd be a great cultural fit in Knoxville. I'd think if you're a Tennessee fan you would have to be thrilled.

 

#Tennessee coaching search update: Source tells me the meeting with Mike Leach went very well. And... stay tuned.

Sources tell @NBCDFWSports that former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach is working on a deal to become the next coach at Tennessee. A deal could be announced Friday. I’m working on more details.

Pickin' & Grinnin' - Conference Championships

Pickin' & Grinnin' - Conference Championships

Submitted by xtramelanin on November 30th, 2017 at 11:15 PM

Mates,

Conference championship games this weekend, and some good ones.  Will be interesting to see how ohio and Wisconsin play out, and Auburn v. Georgia could be very good as well.   The favored team is listed first, followed by the number of points they are favored by.   Remember to pick them with the points, meaning for instance, ohio is favored by 6 points over Wisconsin.  If you like Wisconsin in that game to either win or to at least lose by 6 or less, you'd pick Wisconsin.   

Here are the relevant lines:

ohio               6            Wisconsin

Clemson       9 1/2       Miami

Auburn          2            Georgia

Oklahoma      7           TCU

USC              3 1/2      Stanford

Toledo            21 1/2    Akron  (apparently the Rockets score.  A lot.)

Have a great weekend.

OT(ish): Les Miles (a Michigan Man) is current fan favorite for Tennessee job

As a Wolverine (and Vols) fan living in Knoxville.....I can tell you that there seems to be growing momentum among fans here for a Mad Hatter hire.  This coaching search has been a complete debacle, but I think a Les Miles hire would ease fan apprehension here.  However, there is little faith that the Administration will do the right thing and give him an offer.  It will be interesting to see how this plays out.  With Miles' resume, it seems like a no brainer to many of us.  Will he coach here for 10-15 years?  No, beccuse of his age.  But, he can coach here for 4-6 years and get the program stablilized.  He is a proven winner and a proven recruiter in the SEC.  He would bring instant credability to a flailing program.  Many of us in Big Orange country want to see this former Wolverine get another opportunity in major college football.  And yes, he is reportedly very interested in the job.

From ESPN. Even though I do not believe that we would pursue Patterson either way, we will find out tomorrow whether Ole Miss players will be able to transfer without sitting out a season.

 

I'll add this, if Ole Miss does receive a two-year bowl ban that allows players with 2 years or less of eligibility to transfer freely, the player I would want us to pursue is former mega-recruit and LT Greg Little.
