Any time Urban can trigger Andre Ware is OK by me!

For those of you who don't recall, Andre Ware, who won the Heisman for Houston in 1989, was broadcasting the game and literally went off about how Tressel was running up the score on poor Northwestern. What makes it even more stupid is that he won a Heisman running up the score on hapless SWC foes and out of conference cupcakes. I thought at the time that this is the last person with a mic who should be commenting on running up the score.

No network will ever, or has ever, had as great a debut as BTN on September 1st, 2007. That was the very first thing broadcast and it will forever be remembered. The fact that Chad Henne, Mike Hart and Jake Long all stayed for their senior seasons, to presumably beat tOSU and compete for a Natty. That went out the window in game one and Oregon pounded them in game 2. We finished them in a cold rain thanks to Beanie. They dropped another game during the year and Lloyd Carr decided to retire. Yet they were able to beat Florida in a bowl game. Of all of the underachieving UM teams I can think of, that one has to top their list. 4 losses and not a September Heisman in sight.

Saban also had the bocce balls to fire Kiffin before the championship game last season and replace him with Sark for one game. Had we jettisoned Beck in the same manor before MSU, definitely after, it may have sent the message that incompetence isn't tolerated. Instead, Urban let him stay for another year of incompetence.

Say what you want about Saban, but he is ruthless in his pursuit of championships.He doesn't care about whether feelings get hurt in the quest for wins. He over-signed routinely when he found a loophole in the regs. He fires his OC on the cusp of the championship and now he switches to a freshman QB at halftime of the biggest game. That is why he has my respect. I may not like him, but he earned my respect.
