  • SPORTS MOMENT: 2002 National Championship team is a no-brainer...I'll go with Evan Turner's last second, near-half court shot as time expires to beat TSUN in the BIG tourny. Unbelievable, and I loved Thad Matta giving TTUN's coach an earful - rumored to be in regards to him not voting for Turner as player of the year.
  • COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYER: Braxton Miller, but other Buckeyes are fast approaching..

Watch the hurry-up, non review fourth down call again.  As Eze was rolling over the defender, seemingly staying up, his whole left forearm is down sorta behind the defender.  He was down.

At least the NCAA has done so much to reduce injuries with their war on concussions.

Meanwhile you can break a players knees with a block like this. (I'm all about reducing concussions, but all injuries are a concern in my eyes.  SMH at the NCAA)

Thanks for the info!

1) Bo Pelini: "I could care less about our ranking..."  - you moron it's I COULDN'T care less, as in you care so little now that you couldn't possibly care any less.

2) Franklin: "Whenever you're the furthest from the ball, you have the best chance of getting on the field early." - Ummm what?  What am I missing here?  Maybe it's the beer in me, but I don't get it.

Agreed.  We really should have beat them last year.  If we didn't give up a zillion yards threw the air on only a handful of large pass plays to guys that were WIDE open, we would have.

Not making an excuse - it's just that our passing D was just THAT BAD.  And the supposed best D in the country wasn't exaclty shutting us down - we scored 24 unanswered against them.

And, as you point out, MSU on paper might not be as good this year.  To immediately assume we'd lose even if Braxton was playing doesn't seem quite right.

I'm going to love watching replays of the final seconds of Appy State's victory Michigan's greatest shame over and over and over on ESPN, or anywhere probably, in the week leading up to that game, and especially on game day/pregame.  I may set some DVRs even though video is plenty available on the interwebds.

i may have been a little conservative.  But I would argue those runs - although the D knew they were coming - were in garbage time when the other team's will was already broken.  I.E. Penn State - we absolutely obliterated them.  They couldn't have stopped me if I was running the ball.
