Two-Minute Drill

* Tommy Bowden calls Carr to apologize.

(HT: SiC)

* U-M campus icon Shakey Jake passes.

* Irish to release Jones from scholarship after looking a-holes after initially saying they wouldn't.

(HT: D)

* So what's with Michigan's defense? Fellow U-M blogger Shooting Blue says look no further than 2005 recruiting class.

* While not a big fan of speech codes in general, here's a short piece on Ohio State's. My favorite part is this section: “Words, actions, and behaviors that inflict or threaten infliction of bodily or emotional harm, whether done intentionally or with reckless disregard, are not permitted."

Gee, how on earth is the entire student body not expelled every time Michigan plays in Columbus?

(HT: SK)

* Charlie Weis: The Anti-Bill Callahan. In a Chicago Sun-Times article, ND's Weis said that he opted not to try to score the team's first TD late in the Michigan game when they were driving, explaining his decision as such:

''I could've thrown the ball to the end zone, but I think that's disrespectful to Michigan,'' he said. ''It's better to take your beating than try to get a garbage touchdown."

Uh, dude, you have ZERO touchdowns on the year. I think you should be trying circus tricks to try to get in the endzone and give your team even the smallest amount of confidence and a positive to take away. The games are 60 minutes long. There is no mercy rule.

(HT: AS)

* Finally, since one of our readers suggested we provide more info on Bo's just-published book, voila...

Much appreciated for the repost. I think this will be a great read for any fan of Bo and his time spent at Michigan (and prior). The book happens to be on sale at Borders this week @%30 off cover price (at least it was when I bought it on tuesday).

Thank you again guys!!! Go Blue beat w r psu!!!

Sad to see Shakey Jake die! Hopefully this death of an Ann Arbor icon throws our team into another 4 game losing streak!

(pouring a forty on the curb) Rest in Peace, Shakey Jake. Rest in peace.

I concur about Bacon's latest book; two thumbs up. Bo gave him 16 boxes of papers over ten years ago. Bacon pestered him to write that book for years before Bo gave in. I got mine from Amazon on Monday. I'm almost halfway through.

Does anyone else think it's a little funny the Weis says "I could've thrown the ball to the end zone"?

Sundawg said...

Yost, you are correct, sir. 60 minutes; no mercy rule. Ask Tennessee.

Agree with Sundawg and Scott - Weiss didn't the Yakety Sax highlight reel to be any longer than necessary.
