Settling the Matta: Unfinished Business

What a difference eight games can make... Feeling somewhat like a sinner following a miraculous conversion experience, I find myself singing the indelible line from Amazing Grace: "I once was lost, but now am found, was blind, but now I see." Thad Matta is a helluva basketball coach. Fo...

Michigan loss? The Big10 is WIDE open.

Please post your crocodile tears here for our best friends up North after losing to the worst team in the conference.  I had to check that twice to make sure I saw that box score correctly.  I'm thinking there are at least 3, maybe 5 teams that could win the Big 10 tournament.  Il...

Probability and Undefeated Seasons

Before I get into this - caution: nerd alert.  That said, there have been a few thread topics floating around the last few months about another undefeated season next year.  A common argument that such a season is likely seems to be "show me a game we are going to lose" or someth...

5 Questions For Urban Meyer

Many moons ago, I feel like I botched the chance of a lifetime and ever since then I have this strange lingering feeling of regret that I just can't shake.  I don't dwell on it too often, but once in a while I reflect and wish I could go back in time and kick myself.   A brief his...

Looking Ahead: Fullbacks

None. Thank god. I don’t know about you guys, but I could use a break. I smoke cigarettes. I know, right? I will keep it up. Sure, I can’t climb stairs, maintain an erection after four beers, or look in the mirror while swallowing, but I get to throw my butts everywhere and it doesn&rsqu...
