Two Minute Drill

Folks, we'd be lying if we didn't tell you these are the dog days of being a college football blogger. With the season over, before spring ball and recruiting really sets in, it's hard to find stuff related to our beloved sport to talk about. But, alas, we have a few nuggets...

* MVictors has a nice piece on the 1926 Michigan squad which was my Yost's last as coach and featured a captain by the name of Benny Friedman. This was also the year they broke ground on the Big House as this picture shows:

Rumor has it that even then, the University tried to charge the two guys standing near the bulldozer on the left a seat licensing fee.

* Gary at MemphisTider put up a good post recently about his ideas for a cfb playoff. Everybody has an opinion on how it should go. He offers a couple different scenerios.

* Fanblogs.com asks: Why isn't Charlie Weis in hot water after his team keeps getting smoked by any team with a pulse? (HT: DW)

* Sparty recently won where it counts most: the national mascot champion at the Universal Cheer Association's national championships at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla. It is MSU's third victory in four years at the competition.

According to the Detroit News article linked above, Sparty overtook Minnesota's Goldy Gopher in the final round on Friday with his "Sparty's Spectacular" routine, in which he did his interpretations of KISS, Lord of the Dance and Justin Timberlake.

Yes, you read that correctly: Lord of the Dance and Justin Timberlake.

* Finally, we may just have another segment of the Blog Co-ed Showdown brewing with this (we-assume-now-former) Louisville cheerleader that so many of you sent us pictures of (bless you):

To see some of the many other pictures we couldn't put up on a family site such as the MZone, check out this link. WARNING: Not remotely safe for work unless you work at Penthouse.

holy shit... this didn't happen at ASU?!?!

I wonder if she's still at UL or did the administration kick her to the curb?

Think she'll ever do a scene with Courtney Simpson?

And how come girls didn't look like that when I was 20?

God, that felt more like an anatomy lesson.

What is the deal with the turtle screen saver ?

The King said...

She's wearing a class ring. That totally kills it for me.

But her anus IS remarkably clean.

A bit of a threadjack here, but I figured you Michigan guys would eat this up with a spoon (and this has NOTHING to do with the Louisville cheerleader).

From the Austin American-Statesman:

The talk of the nation right now is Texarkana quarterback Ryan Mallett. While Florida prospect John Brantley, who de-committed from Texas in favor of the Gators, dropped from five stars to four stars after the week of all-star practices and games, Mallett skyrocketed.

Always highly regarded, Mallett, the No. 2 recruit on the Fab 55, is ranked No. 2 in the country by Rivals.com, and the 6-6 Michigan commitment is Superprep Magazine's No. 1 recruit in the country.

"He has the strongest arm I've seen coming out of high school since Carson Palmer," said Scout.com national recruiting expert Allen Wallace, who also is the editor of Superprep Magazine. "He's strong, he's accurate and he's a competitor. He showed all that during all-star week. And he also showed that, while he's not fast, he's got enough mobility and athleticism to avoid the pass rush and buy himself time in the pocket."

There. Some football.

i'm not sure which is more of a tease- the sleazy UL cheerleader? or the promise of an over-hyped QB?

maybe i'm just getting old...

beast in 'bama said...


I'm not sure which is more of a tease either, but I believe the over-hyped QB is easier to ignore (for now).

surrounded in columbus said...

true, BiB, but in the long run, i'm likely to get more out of the QB recruit than i am an internet stripper...

Richard Cranium said...

Mallet doesn't stand a chance!! Didn't you hear? That Clausen kid has the next 4 Heismans locked up. Duh!!

Kirbdaddy said...

Hey Richard,

Now that Ron "Four Heismans" Powlus is the QB coach for Notre Dame, Papa Claussen needs to start clearing the mantle for all those Heismans.

Kirbdaddy said...

As for the cheerleader, that's why it so good to be here in Kentucky!!!

However, I went to UK and our cheerleaders are too classy to pull this crap. U of L is just a glorified community college.
