  • SPORTS MOMENT: OSU v Washington. Night game in the 'Shoe. Sat in 24C and watched Big Daddy crush UW with my father.

    Close second is having my 4 year old son come up to me and, in an effort to have me get ready to go somewhere, tell me I needed a bath because "you stick like Michigan"

Best: College -

OSU Division - Tressel for all the reasons above and for giving the student body hope after Cooper's reign of terror (as a 91 alum I never got to celebrate anything but a "win")

Non-OSU Division - Bear Bryant - yeah he was a bit older when I was a kid watching him but he still got the most out of the money paid to his players.

Best Pro -

Nick Saban - Alabama - hard to argue with his national titles but in a state with an absolutely terrible educational system for the head coach to have that much sway (and lets be honest his video editor probably makes more than the president at UA) is a bit much.

I say us.  We win out that means we are Big Ten champs with 1-2 victories over Wisky/Neb and a road win at Okla.  Meanwhile, Lou won't even be playing for its conference championship.

Easiest "pick" of the week was Iowa after giving Kirk an extension.  Talk for years had been how Iowa was "trapped" in the contract with Ferentz and how they could not fire him etc.  Then he has 1 good year and gets more years tacked on. 

As far as Hazell goes - I find it mildly entertaining to think that two former Purdue quarterbacks are starting in the SEC this weekend.

My "biggest" problem with it as well.  Oh and I did not know they had sarcasm font until I read this about UM's O-Line

The line is an above-average group that's embraced Harbaugh's physicality

I guess my big issues were

1) The overrated tag on Kwon.  I thought as a first year starter last year he was pretty darn good

2) The talk that no one on our OL was someone you worried about.  Yes, Zeke was a phenom back but someone besides Decker had to be opening holes for him. 

3) Compared to the write up on other schools (*cough* Alabama *cough* Michigan *cough*) they did not give our depth nearly enough credit.  So as weak as the "smack" was it was emphasized because we were the first ones where there seemed to be any negatives.

Of the coaches you mentioned I think my top two would be Marshall or Altman.  Bennett, Painter, and the rest do not do anything for me.  Marshall players seem to love playing for him and he has an exciting style.  Altman is the same but I think if they want to keep him Oregon will find the money <sarcasm> somewhere </sarcasm>

As a parent whose son plays Lacrosse I can say that I am happy he chose this sport over some of the others.  At the youth levels there simply isn't the level of contact you get with football or hockey and they are incapable of throwing the ball hard enough for it to be a problem.  Plus they wear more pads on the upper body than your typical football player. 

I am not deluding myself but considering I have seen more concussions in soccer - hard ball, kick to the side of the head etc - I am happy with Lacrosse from a "fun sport, relatively safe" perspective.

Now looking at the incidence of drug use among Lacrosse players and I have a bigger worry but...

Mattison has nothing to do with it.  He was DC under Hoke.  We get to see their third DC in three years now.  Bucks up BIG
