Another example of why you cant give a Buckeye a Gun….or a car…..or pretty much anything.
COLUMBUS, Ohio — Former Ohio State football star Jim Stillwagon is suspected of shooting at a pickup truck on a highway ramp and later striking the driver with a handgun, causing it to fire a bullet that grazed the man’s head, after a road rage incident that spanned about 14 miles, police said Monday.
Every player gets old, every player will lose a step, and then every player gets phased out. Every player except Charles Woodson! The former National champion, Heisman trophy winner, Defensive MVP and Super Champion is this weeks NFL Wolverine of the week. This season Charles in the “twilight” of his NFL career was moved from corner to safety this season. So what does CW do for his final act? Become one of the better Safety’s in the league. Woodson finished the week with 5 tackles 1 pass break up and 1 fantastic interception leading his defense in shutting down the division rival Chicago Bears. congrats to CW on getting his defense back on track.
Lamar Woodley-Recorded his first Sack of the season backing up his guarantee that the Steelers would not fall to 0-2
Mike Martin- Recorded his first NFL sack! Mike is still a beast.
Jake Long- Was able to overcome a Knee injury to help his team beat the Raiders. Longs Dolphins Rushed for 263 yards on 43 attempts, that is 6.1 yards per carry!

The rule of thumb is never sleep on an opponent, especially an opponent who is desperate to score let alone win a game. But sometimes no matter how “desperate” a team is they just don’t have the talent to put up a fight. This is the Case With UMess, who are in the first year of their Jump to division 1. In their first 2 games(both losses) UMess has only managed 1 TD(the extra point was missed) and currently rank between 119th and 124th in passing yards, rushing yards, points for, and points against(and this was against UConn and Indiana). But even though the Wolverines are playing such a bad team there is still a lot Michigan must accomplish to help the team progress for the rest of the season:
Give the freshman who are currently playing some good (low pressure) experience.
Figure out how to stop the run and run the ball with our RBs.
Get some confidenc, the first 2 games have been tough on both sides of the ball and the D-line, O-line, Roundtree and Fitz need to get their mojo going.
Don’t need to say much here other than I hope many of the starters get a rest in the second half. I mean who do you think would win between these 2?
Well week 1 has come and gone and a few things remain the same:
Beer and football still go well together.
Tom Brady is still a beast.
Tom led his Patriots to a 1-0 start to the 2012 season with a 2 TD 236 yard performance. After a small Super Bowl hangover for Brady and co brady was able to put together 2 scoring drives in the first half and held off the young Titans in the second half. Congrats to Tom and his Patriots on their good start to the season.
Jeff Backus – Jeff helped the Lions to a comeback win in the fourth quarter(extended his franchise record 177th start).
When you think of Denard Robinson you think of the best Quarterback in College football electrifying fans with fantastic runs and TD passes. What you don’t normally think about is Denard Robinson skateboarder/RnB star. Well in JDK and Rey’s new music video Shoelaces is just that. Have a look:
All I ask is that he is very careful on the skateboard(no half-pipe please) and doesn’t get caught up in the rock star life:).
With the college football season seemingly ages away, one of the few things that helps me get through the summer(along with vacations) is the video game by EA NCAA Football. Every year in the middle of July EA Releases their new version of their College football simulation. While the game is still a few weeks out I would like to give a few thoughts about the game after playing the demo.
The run game continues to shine- After playing a few games (owning USC) the blocking and running game seem to have continued to improve. With additional animations for the RB and for the tackles the game seems to run much smoother and more realistically.
Player Stamina- One of the worst parts about last year’s game playing as the Wolverines was after one scrambling play Drob would have 0 stamina and would get hurt on the next play 80% of the time. This year EA has improved this coming with players getting tired progressively as long drives went on rather than after one play.
Return coverage- One of my biggest pet peeve about NCAA Football over the years has been the absolute lack of coverage on punt and kick returns. Because of the lack of coverage getting a good return was impossible making punts a fairly useless effort. After a few returns in NCAA 13 I wasn’t taking it to the house every time but, when I chose the right holes in the coverage I was rewarded with good returns.
Presentation and Sound- If you have played NCAA football before you have almost certainly cursed out that piece of crap Kirk (Still Can’t Beat Michigan) Herbstreit’s terrible commentary. While the Fuckeye is still doing the commentary the overall sound for the game has improved to include a more realistic sounding Big House and the ESPN additions work as well.
All in all I’m pretty excited for the game and a chance to see the (virtual) Maize and Blue march onto the field. I’ll leave you with a preview video of the game featuring Michigan Vs. Maryland a team that Michigan would demolish.
Sorry we haven’t been keeping you posted on the many Fails of the Fuckeyes. You guys understand life kind of takes over and you don’t have as much free time as you like. Anyway, I had to post this. And, for the record, my thoughts on this are hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaah. Also I would have red flagged him a long time ago for being a bitch.
Sources: Jared Sullinger red flagged
Ohio State Buckeyes big man Jared Sullinger has been medically red flagged by NBA doctors, multiple league sources told ESPN.com on Monday.
Sullinger’s agent, David Falk, when reached via phone by ESPN.com said that he was not in a position to comment on the story.
Sullinger, who is projected to be a lottery pick in the 2012 NBA draft, underwent a series of medical tests at the NBA draft combine a week ago. According to sources, the doctors who looked at Sullinger were concerned with Sullinger’s back.
A number of NBA team doctors have reviewed the information from the NBA and have told their front office staff that Sullinger’s back issues could shorten his NBA career and some have advised their teams not to draft him in the first round.
Playoff discussions took a hit — or, at least encountered a bump in the road — last week when the BCS committee, composed of 11 conference commissioner’s and Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick, decided tohand the responsibility of choosing college football’s postseason to the BCS’ Presidential Oversight Committee.
The presidents/chancellors had the final say in the playoff conversation anyway, but instead of approving/denying one idea, the committee will now have “options” from which to choose. “Our job is just to narrow and refine the options,” Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott said last week.
