Let The Games Begin
The game's at 2:30 EST. Who's excited?
Apparently the gents at the Free Press and Detroit News finally figured out that Harris and Sims are important to a post season run. The Detroit News did a quick story on Dion Harris' struggles since returning from injury and the Free Press took a gander into Courtney Sims disappearing act last Saturday. Way ahead of you boys.
The Diag is reporting Abram will play today and there's a slight possibility Chris Hunter will suit up too. You know my stance on Abram. However, just having Hunter on the bench would be a huge morale boost for the team. Cross your fingers.
Johnny's been hard at work doing a post-mortem on the Indiana game that includes a look ahead to today's game. Anything that compares watching the NCAA tournament to sleeping with a prositute is worth reading.
I'm tired of going to the three letter tournament. Wanna go back to the four letter one. The Ann Arbor News did a sampling of 10 bracket watchers and found 9 of them putting Michigan in the NCAA tourney. The lone dissenter was CBS Sportsline, where their columnists (O')Doyle (Rules!) and Mejia are saying we only get a three letter tourney this year. Haters.
Unfortunately I'll be working during the game so my good friend Mr. Gamecast will be up and running. Stuck at work too? Click here to get the UM gamecast version. Works pretty well. If I can figure it out I'll put up an open thread for the game. My preview of the game can be found here.
Picking a Coach
Brian's still praying for the gods alter time, accelerate the harvest, or telepor... um... for football season to get here a little quicker. He's found a formula for picking and hiring assistant coaches that guarantees us victory. If you're jonesin' for football too, and you hate Ohio State, Tressel's Blog is for you.
Fun At The Expense Of Others
I've gotta post this little gem, at right, from Deadspin. Enjoy.
One Last Thing
What the hell happened at the World Baseball Classic yesterday? How on God's green earth does Team USA lose to Team Canada? Ever? They're using hockey sticks as bats for christsakes! We invented the f-ing game, and we came up with this half-ass tournament so we could win it not finish with South Africa at the bottom of Pool B. Mutter among yourselves.
