Two-Minute Drill

Need to try to catch up with some of the great stuff you've all been sending our way. Let's begin, shall we?

* Former Wolverine receiver Mario "Then I Got High" Manningham was apparently stoned when he took the NFL's Wonderlic test: he scored a Vince Young-esque six. Six. Out of 50.

(HT: JW)

* Fox Sports ranks the Top 25 cfb uniforms in the land and Michigan comes in at #1. Unfortunately, with our QB situation more unsettled than the Democratic party's presidential race and more O-line depth on South Quad's intramural squad, this will probably be the only Top 25 ranking Michigan football sniffs this year.

(HT: CaliGirl)

* Tressel not a gentlemen either? Propect reneges on Illinois, commits to Tuos. Pot, meet Kettle. Kettle, meet Pot. No word yet if Tressel hurt himself after the fall from his high horse.

(HT: MB)

* Former University of Ohio State defensive end Derrick Foster has been charged with shooting two Columbus police officers during a drug raid. Thankfully, the injuries of the two officers are not life threatening and they're expected to make a full recovery.

According to the Columbus Dispatch article linked above, Foster had no criminal record, a sociology degree, a $60,000-a-year job as a Columbus code-enforcement supervisor, a $146,000 home on the South Side, a 5-year-old daughter and a valid permit to carry a concealed weapon.

So what explains his seemingly surprising turn to crime? Uh, hello! Do I need to spell it out? B-U-C-K-S-T-A-C-H-E.

(HT: LS, MB)

* Some MZone readers relaunch once-popular music website FMSound.

* Classy Bama Tees over at DeepSouthSports. Yikes!

(HT: JR and her fellow Auburn friends at TigersX.net)

* Self important? Delusional? Yep, they're talking about Notre Dame over at the NYT.

(HT: TL)

I'm confused, is a "buckstache" any facial hair? I mean, wouldn't this be considered a "buckbeard." By the way, May is offically Maystache so grow them long!

Excuse my nerdiness, but wasn't FM Sound a fictional radio station in GTA San Andreas?

Interesting website with QB Wonderlic scores

So ND doesn't want to play at Rutgers?

I've never been 100% certain what got Joe Tiller (and apparently Tressel) up in arms about the players that de-committed from Purdue and PSU and decided to head to Michigan. I have to agree with RR on this one, if people can de-committ from Michigan because of a coach change, why can't recruits change their mind and come to Michigan after a coaching change?

Does anyone have some insider info on this one? Why does RR get "snake oil" comments whereas Zook can freely admit that he will continue recruiting someone that just verballed to OSU? As much as I'd like to stick up for Tress here, this does appear to be hypocritical from where I'm standing.

new kid on the block who doesn't "know the rules around here" (ie--gentleman's agreements) and an unknown commodity

AKA---"Richie's not playing fair, he's mean, he's a dummy, I'm telling"

i was going to say something earlier this year, but i can hold it in any longer. why does alabama need to abuse the houndstooth pattern? i was in pidgeon forge over new years and there was a 60 year guy wearing a houndstooth alabama hat and rambling on about his neighbor's dog to his wife. we were at some comedy barn thing and they brought out dogs to do silly tricks. as soon as the first dogs came out, he started howling and barking...from the back of the balcony. what is with these fans??? i think they should have to take the wonderlic test to be able to venture out on the web. i took a sample one and got a 45

Just think what Bama's unis would look like if the founder of Nike went to Bama instead of Oregon!
