Silver Bullet Points Goes Shotgun

Cartridge in a pear tree?

Given that it’s the start of bowl week, this’ll probably be more scattered than usual. If that’s even possible.

  • Healing powers: Christian Bryant is back, baby, according to his Twitter and (most importantly) according to Tressel.
  • This week in clothing: The Buckeyes will be wearing away jerseys in the Sugar Bowl.  Worked well last year… Their Rose opponents from 2010 are wearing highlighters.
  • Raise the roof. Please: You’ve probably heard that Minnesota’s stadium might be used for Monday’s Vikings/Bears game. There are lots of glitches, not including the buckets of snow on the field and elsewheres- It seats 55k, and there are 65 The stadium doesn’t serve alcohol, There are no luxury boxes, and it’s been “winterized” since November so it’s hard to know if the pipes will be OK.  Wait… no alcohol? What do they think this is… a crappy bowl game?
  • All a matter of perspective: Disappointed in Iowa’s season? Haven’t you been paying attention?
  • You know who’s not back? Boubacar… unless you mean “back in trouble
  • We’ve all got our own opinions on the Big T1e2n logo, and I’m starting to like the one I saw on the MZone.
  • New coaches: Haywood to Pitt, Golden to the Hurricanes, Muschamp at Florida, Stewart still at WVA (for now). Still no decision at Vanderbilt or Michigan (what? He’s not done yet? Mea Culpa)

Guest post from our friend Lurking_Michael… great work, bro- I’m guessing you want one of these for Christmas, right?

Legends and Leaders?

After completely screwing the pooch with their non-geographic divisional alignment, this task was not going to be easy, but I can’t imagine that a worse job could be done. The “winners” – Legends and Leaders. Huh? Wha?

Just off the top of my head, what about Heartland and Midwest, or Great Lakes and Great Plains or even Black and Blue? That’s just riffing, without any research or thought at all, and all of those are STILL better than Legends and Leaders. Plus, those examples I just gave are far less likely to be ridiculed by the rest of the footballing nation, which is already gleefully rubbing our collective noses in it.

Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany says, correctly, that any time you have something new, it will take time for people to get used to. However, Delany can rest assured, no matter how many years go by, the division names the Big Ten have chosen will continue to suck more than words can say. Read More
