When you do this so close to game day, do you meet the seller to get tickets, or is it a print-at-home type of transfer deal now?  Forgive my ignorance, but I haven't bought from StubHub in a while.

"We're looking forward to going down to Bloomington on Saturday and playing an in-state rivalry. You throw out all the records in this one and play as hard as you can."

LOL at "throw out the records."  That's usually when one team is good and one bad.  3-8 vs. 3-8. I see no need to throw out the records, Coach Hazell.  Seems like an evenly matched game of suck.

Not everyone grew up on the mean streets of Marion. Some of us call farm country home. Ohio is a melting pot of Buckeye fans. That concert looks pretty sweet.

Shannon was good last year.  I don't think he was *really* good.  He definitely has shown flashes of the player he can be.  If he can consistently knock down an open jump shot and continue to be the defender and distributor that he was last year, then he can have that breakout year that we are all hoping for.

Is that former Michigan Wolverine Reed Baker?  And he's their stud?  Wow.  I'll bet Eddie Days is pretty pumped about getting a couple trill tonight.

A 3 loss Alabama team would not come close to making a 16 team playoff, so that is a strawman.

16 team playoff thsi year would work like this:

Conference champs x 11

PAC 10 - Oregon, SEC- Auburn, B1G 10 - Wisonsin, Big 12 - Oklahoma, Big East - UConn, ACC - Va Tech, Mtn West - TCU, WAC - Boise State, MAC - Miami, Conference USA - UCF, Sun Belt - FIU

5 at large teams - use the BCS to select them(Stanford, Ohio State, Arkansas and Pick 2 more from:  MSU/LSU/Missouri/Okla St./Nevada*)

* Note that a 3 loss Alabama team is ranked lower in the BCS than all of these teams and would not be eligible.


I'm not saying that system would be awesome, but it would not diminish the regular season as much as many say.

Interesting stat (since most everyone is going with the JoePa comparisons):

Hayden Fry is 3 years younger than JoePa.  He retired 12 years ago at age 69.  And everyone thought he was really old when he retired!  He could have coached another generation if Iowa kids if he had any heart him.
