  • SPORTS MOMENT: Sad to say, 8th grade year. Last minute red zone stand versus hated rival and I make a tackle at the three-yard line to save the game. Long gap... then I ran a marathon when I was 30. Not exactly Highlight Express.

It's an interesting argument. The window for winning national championships is pretty small for most programs and we're in the midst of both an incredible recruiting and on-the-field roll. I suspect Finebaum's critique may be a bit of a compliment in disguise in suggesting that we should be winning the Natty's that Bama doesn't, essentially one every 2-3 years. That's some expectations right there, but it seems to be what he's saying.

I knew him as a broadcaster mostly for ABC. I will say that his Southern drawl was pretty captivating on a central Ohio Saturday afternoon; it really set the mood.

There is no excuse for how they turned a stately old stadium into what it looks like from street level. That said, it's not a bad place to see a game as far as a viewing experience.

Not sure. Obviously the Lambeau game will be pro-Wisky, but there are a ton of Domers in Chicagoland. A ton of cheeseheads, too, but I see more 50/50 for Chicago game. 

Either way, great series and the best two alternative sites I've seen for a two-game series.

I would guess that, for Michigan fans, the actual name is a lot less important than the fact that the class is already developing a bond. It's a pretty damned good looking group, even as early as it is.

I think Chatfileld was Carlton Davis 2.0; a kid who valued the Buckeye commitment at the time, but was always looking for "dream" schools to offer. Did we put up a tenacious fight to keep him? No, probably because we have other prospects and there's no sense in losing a battle like that publicly.

Yeah, I'm struggling to really conjure up any problem with this.

From what I've heard, they'll pursue him till the end. Obviously, though, they're going to use their energy to go afterr Solo and any other recruits that might emerge during the season. I have to think it's a small pool at this point, though, making it easier to pursue Gaoteote.

I guess I see Oweh as a take regardless at this point, given all of the interest that both Urban and LJ have invested. Plus, both Oats and Chatfiield are DE/OLB hybrids. I don't see either as a threat to a spot for Parsons or Oweh; those guys are both takes. Smith is a take, too, as he can slide inside.
