NCAA Jabber 11/13/07


They say that there should not be a playoff in College Football because the whole season is a playoff. That theory is not standing up right now as the Kansas Jayhawks sit at 10-0 and are ranked #3 in the BCS and #4 in the Coaches and Harris Poll. If the season ended today they would not be in the BCS Championship game. Dennis Dodd thinks they are the #1 team right now.

MGOBLOG seems to think that Lloyd Carr will announce his reteirment soon.

Three separate sources indicate that Carr has made his decision to retire official and people around the athletic department are being told. The formal announcement will come after the Ohio State game, possibly at the Monday press conference, possibly a day or two later.

My Mascot is bigger than your Mascot is something that Alabama may be able to say on game day…

During a joint session between the First Year Council and the SGA Senate, the two bodies passed a resolution that will research bringing a live elephant to campus during football games to add school spirit.

In Michigan’s Defense…

Michigan fans are going to have to listen to a lot for the rest of the season. I really do feel for them having such high hopes and the chance of a National Title crushed (better be crushed, they shouldn’t even be ranked next week). It really does suck to look forward to a season with so much promise and high hopes only to drop the season opening gimme game against a D1-AA school.

In their defense, Appalachian State kicks ass. Well, they kick ass in Div. 1-AA. They play in the tough Southern Conference against the likes of Chattanooga, Furman, Elon, and Wofford. They have won back to back National Championships. Here is some poor video highlights from the 2006 National Championship.

In all seriousness, congrats to Appalachian State it’s a victory that the school will relish in for years to come. It’s also a game that Michigan will hear about for sometime and deservedly so.

Stop by TINO and vote as to whether you think Michigan will be ranked next week or not.
