Re Fowler/ESPN:  They're promoting the SEC brand as that's their channel for growth.  They see B1G as a cash-cow type business that has low growth potential.  What what he say's may be technically true, it misses the reality of their bias, and that their biz prospects are tied to the growth and profitability of the SEC brand/network.

What I like is that they are developing complete players.  Wide receivers that actually block.  Running backs that actually block and catch passes.  Everybody is multi-threat.  Not to mention using special teams as the path to 1st team reps.  A couple anecdotes are the way Evan Spencer blocks downfield, and how they worked to reward him with a TD on that (and the following) drive.  Love it!

The way 'Zeke blocks is outstanding as well.  I love this guy.  How he credits Rod Smith for some of this development, they way he shares credit to his team-mates.  Credit to himself and Mom and Pop.

Taking two vacation days and this weekend to marathon-watch all seasons of The Walking Dead.  Knowledge=Power.

The gastrointestinal perspective is the first port-hole thru which I view potential future results when evaluating which life-path to take.

I think ESPN has a similar utility as mgoblog.  I like to visit them when I want to hear about the enemy.  I don't value their perspective, it feeds the hate-fire.

This is a weird question, but I'm curious whats it like to lose a job like head coach at Ohio State.  I imagine more so than just about any other job, it takes over your life to the point of consuming you.  And then suddenly there is a huge void to fill, yet it's a chance at a sort of a rebirth.  What was that like for you?  Do you know you looked so damn dapper in the suit and fedora?

Fantastic attention to detail and very informative.  I thought the momentum shifted back to us just because windbag Jim Delaney finally stopped talking.  If you chart it, Maryland's rally coincided directly with the interview.

Do the new rules forbid gif's of somebody shooting imaginary dice?

I think Hoke has come across like a giant A$$ thru this process.  If he cared so much about his players as he says, why wouldn't he contact either the medical staff or better yet Shane himself  Saturday evening or Sunday mid-morning at the latest.  He claims these 120 players are his sons.  Would you not contact your son or his Dr. the day after a possible concussion to see how he is doing? 

He was trying to sweep the whole concussion thing under the rug.  "We don't talk about injuries" is his mechanism for making his players play thru injuries.  You can take it a little ways, and maybe  you get the benefit of a player playing thru an injury.  You take it as far as Hoke want's to take it and you can get a kid to play thru a concussion, and he doesn't  look like a bad guy. 

As an Ohio State fan, I hope and pray they keep him forever.  He has Decided Intellect Disadvantage (tm) that our coaches can exploit.  As a humanitarian, I hope he gets knocked back down to assistant D-line coach asap.  Actually, I think Michigan should hire him as an Assistant Director of recruiting.  They get to give the MIchigan Man a soft landing, and we get our rivalry back.

Here's a good article on the dysfunction in the AD.

In Hoke's press conference, he claimed not to see the hit because he was following the flight of the ball, yet a follow-up question asked if he thought the Gopher player was targeting, and he immediately replied that "Yes, he thought it was targeting".  Big fat liar.
