Michigan Looks to Bounce Back After Bama

After a receiving a thorough beat down from Alabama last week, Michigan is looking to get back to their winning ways this Saturday against Air Force. A home opener against a weak opponent is the perfect hangover remedy for a team coming off a tough loss. With Fitzgerald Toussaint off of suspension and Denard Robinson’s poor play against Alabama, don’t expect the Wolverines to take is easy on the Falcons this weekend.

Although last week’s loss was a tough one to swallow for Brady Hoke’s crew, it came at the perfect time. A loss in week one is a lot better than a loss in week two or later. Beyond that, Alabama is the best team Michigan, or any team for that matter, will face all season. With Air Force coming up and Massachusetts the week after, the Wolverines have two weeks to figure out their running game with Toussaint in the picture before facing Notre Dame and their conference schedule.

Brady Hoke Indefinitely Suspends Fitz Toussaint From Michigan

fitzgerald-toussaint

After his arrest Saturday night for driving under the influence, Fitzgerald Toussaint was suspended indefinitely by head coach Brady Hoke. This will be costly for the Wolverine offense as Toussaint is, or was, their number one running back. As a redshirt junior in 2011, Toussaint ran for 1,041 yards and nine touchdowns, second on the team only to Denard Robinson.

In a statement Monday, Brady Hoke said:

Notre Dame Fighting Irish 59, Air Force Falcons 33: Rapid Reaction

notre-dame_cheerleaders

Offense was the story in South Bend on Saturday, as Tommy Rees the “Game Manager” became Tommy Rees “the Touchdown slinger.”

Notre Dame reeled off 42 first half points thanks in large part to four passing touchdowns from their quarterback in route to a 59-33 shellacking of the Air Force Academy in a game that was not even as close as the already lopsided outcome would suggest.

Rees had trouble missing his targets as he connected on 23 of 32 passes for just under 300 yards and four touchdowns.

#27 Air Force Falcons: College Football 77 in 77

it really is the very definition of irony. The Air Force Falcons college football team, rarely ever attack their opponents through the air. They finished in the nation in passing. The service academy that runs our deadliest of war machines, the air planes and jets, actually does all it’s work on the ground- through the rushing obsessed triple option attack.

In this game of football, a metaphor for military combat, maybe the Air Force Falcons should be renamed the Ground Attack Coyotes? AF’s QB Tim Jefferson is a dual threat, and one of the best signal callers in school history. He won’t pass much, but can if he needs to.

Take It To The Bank, College Football Week 3


So I was sitting at the book at the Las Vegas Hilton over the weekend, and it was just like old times.

“Louie!!!”

“Hey, Louie, what’s cracking?”

“SECURITY!!!”

Now, maybe I groped that woman, maybe I didn’t. I’m an old man, and my mind ain’t what it used to be.

I do know, and I can say with absolute certainty…that those puppies were real. True story.

Now look, I don’t objectify women, but if they decide to come up to me, on a day where I am undefeated and making moneywell…I guess that money can be used as bail money too, huh?  Who’s with me?

I still got out with a slap on the wrist. Looks like fortune smiled down on ol’ Louie.

Maybe you can be just like me, Lucky. Heaven knows I was last week, now your chance to be Lucky like me. [Read more…]

Gophers, Brewster Talking Contract Extension

By Mike Gallagher

If this were a bar, Gophers AD Joel Maturi would be cutoff.

“The fact of the matter is we’re 6-6, if we win our bowl game, we’ll be 7-6.  That’s one game better than when Brewster took over the program three years ago.”

Wow.  That was Maturi a few days before the Gophers DID NOT win the Insight Bowl vs. Iowa State, thus making the Gophers record the same as it was the last year before the Brewster reign of terror began.

Even if the Gophers had won the bowl game, think of the hilarity of that comment.  How low must expectations be that an improvement of one win over three seasons is acceptable?
