Jon Gruden at WWE Raw. The ESPN Monday Night Football announcer chose this over watching the BCS National Championship Game between Alabama and Notre Dame. Hard to blame him when the Crimson Tide are destroying the Irish, 35-0 as of this posting. The Rock > College football blowout. Photo: RecordsANDRadio
Came across this after I was having a discussion with my friend about the "possibility" of Notre Dame going undefeated in 2012.
I made this for a friend when she agreed with me that she hoped a meteor hit the Big House when Michigan and Notre Dame play. I figured I'd post it just because I can.
I got to chat with ESPN's Eamon McAnaney about this weekend's Warrior Classic from East Hartford. We preview those games, talk Syracuse, Notre Dame, Big East Lacrosse, and the NCAA Tournament. And yes, he does want a shot clock. Stream it live or download it to your miniature computing devices here.
Nebraska will become the 12th member of the Big Ten Conference. NU's Board of Regents voted unanimously today to apply for admission into the conference, and acceptance by the conference has to be considered a mere formality. MSU is 0-3 all-time against the Cornhuskers in football. Two of the losses were blowouts--in a home-and-home series in 1995-96 (near the height of Nebraska's football powers)--and the third came in the 2003 Alamo Bowl, which until I wrote this sentence never actually happened. Nebraska basketball, conversely, is terrible. Also, for what it's worth, legendary NU football coach Bob Devaney started his coaching career at MSU during the Biggie Munn era. The one big surprise here is that Nebraska is apparently looking to start playing in the Big Ten in 2011, one year earlier than most thought. We'll see. UPDATE: Nebraska will be a member as of July 1, 2011. And lest you somehow think expansion is all over, today Notre Dame cancelled its much-anticipated Yankee Stadium game against Army, which would have been played in 2013. (The teams will still play there this fall.) Coincidence, or making room for a conference schedule? We'll see . . .
