Talking Bull: I thought Spartans would fight anywhere?

I mean why go for one for one's with ranked out of conference opponents when you can pay lower performing mid-majors to come play you in a hostile environment.

Michigan AD Dave Brandon doesn't want nonconference road games (other than Notre Dame) | Detroit Free Press |
"I don't believe we can or should go on the road for nonconference games when we can put 113,000 people in our stadium," he said today at the Eagle Eye Golf Club before a golf match with Michigan State AD Mark Hollis. "It's, financially, the right thing to do. It's the right thing to do for our fans, in terms of their ticket packages. And we're going to alternate with Notre Dame, so we're going to have one game on the road every other year. So the rest of those games, I would like to have at Michigan Stadium."

Man up and play the TCU's and Boise's of the world.

In an episode of "What could possibly go wrong with that" Texas decided to show high school games on their new network. Now sanity has prevailed and it seems that is not going to happen.

Longhorn Network Won't Air High School Games For One Year -

Two UB Coaches are taking in NFL fellowships this summer

Jones and Inge Named Bill Walsh NFL Minority Coaching Fellowship Participants - Buffalo Athletics
The Buffalo Bills announced that Jamaal Fobbs, Ernest Jones, and William Inge have been named the team's 2011 Bill Walsh NFL Minority Coaching Fellowship participants and will assist the Bills' coaching staff during training camp at St. John Fisher College in Pittsford, NY .

The prospect of Inge doing this frightens me a bit. The guy is one of the most promising coaches on the staff and many of these coaches are picked up in, a relatively short time, by teams in the NFL.

Current Buffalo Bills coaches – Offensive Coordinator/Running Backs Coach Curtis Modkins and Defensive Quality Control Coach Adrian White each participated in the Bill Walsh NFL Minority Coaching Fellowship. Modkins worked with the Philadelphia Eagles (1997), Dallas Cowboys (1998) and the Pittsburgh Steelers (2005) while White spent two training camps with the Bills (2006-07). White also had internships with the New York Giants, Jacksonville Jaguars, Dallas Cowboys and Detroit Lions.

Finally in a bit of sad News Toledo forward Justin Moss had his career ended when a heart defect was detected.

Heart issue benches UT recruit - Toledo Blade
Justin Moss, a 6-foot-6 power forward from Romulus (Mich.) High School who was expected to contribute immediately for UT this season, has been diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and his athletic career is over.

While its sad to see him not get to play at that level but how much better to find out now than on the court.Hopefully this does not stop his quest for higher education.
