Some very fun and interesting news came out earlier this week. Back at the start of the 2007 season, Michigan embarrassed themselves as the first ranked Div 1A team to lose to a Div 1AA team. Expectations were high for the Wolvies as they were ranked number 5 only to lose to Appalachian State in the opener. Now there is a report that the Michigan players partied all summer, got high just before kickoff and never prepared for the game Chumps of the West . What a great game!! And to relive that classic ending click here The Upset . Still got the T shirt!
And it’s the game that just keeps on giving. The next week Oregon ran wild over Michigan 39-7 leading the brainfart trust in Ann Arbor to determine that they needed to have a spread offense too. Out with Floyd Carr and in with DickRod. Ahh, the DickRod years. Michigan was an absolute joke. Early season Heisman hopefuls, over rankings, horrid defenses. Man, that was just fun! Couldn’t have happened to a more deserving program.
Now they claim that they were high for the game. What a great excuse! Guess it shouldn’t count like when scUM fans say they DickRod years don’t count.
Chad Johnson’s butt buddy Terrell Owens is going to be shown the door up in Seattle. When you are the number 5 or 6 receiver seems like you should keep your mouth shut and work hard. Not T.O. He’s been his usual motor mouth self and then when it counts he drops 5 passes against Denver including a sure TD pass. Last night he drops two more against KC. Good riddance to the pair.
Next week I’ll have the first Mega Bets of the 2012 season. Already have my (one good) eye on a few games. Get ready to fade my picks and make some money. Can’t wait!
