Ohio State vs. Michigan

November 16, 2007

OK, it’s been 10 days since we have posted anything new, so I thought I’d post about the big game tomorrow.

I hope Michigan wins, of course, but I have my doubts about it.

I think Ohio State is a stronger team overall and their single loss last week has probably got them steamed. They dropped like 9 places in the polls and now have no real chance at a national championship, so I think the Rose Bowl is in their sights.

Michigan, on the other hand, lost their first 2 games and last week’s game, so their recent loss probably will not be as much as a motivator as Ohio State’s loss.

Again, I hope Michigan emerge victorious and I’ll be rooting them on.

But if I were a betting man, my money would be on Ohio State even if giving up 4 points.





2007 Detroit Lions

October 2, 2007

So the Lions are 3-1 for the first quarter of the regular season.

Honestly, I did not expect that. If I had made a prediction it would have been that the Lions would be 1-3 right now.

I have been somewhat impressed, although I’m not sure I’m ready to jump on the bandwagon. I mean I always have been (as far back as I recall) a Detroit Lions fan, but I have learned throughout the years that the lower my expectations, the less my disappointment by the end of the season – heck, sometimes by the middle of the season.

The Lions are

1st in passing yards, 4th in scoring and 4th in overall offense. And on Sunday, September 30th, 2007, they broke the all-time record for scoring in the fourth quarter. Wow!

I certainly could not have predicted that.
