Brent Musburger offers a glimpse inside the mind of Joe Paterno and manages to depress me. What a kill joy.

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on October 16, 2008

Yesterday I was listening to the Dan Patrick show on the radio. One of Patrick’s guests for the day was ABC sports caster Brent Musburger. He was on the show to discuss college football. Now personally I’m not a fan of Musburger or Patrick for that matter but it beats listening to Top 40 crap and the local Gamecock homers that are on the other stations here in Columbia.

Musburger decided to depress the listening audience. While admitting to having a personal friendship with JoePa and through the power of “candid” conversations Musburger offered the following glimpse inside the mind and life of JoePa:

“This is a tough one for me because I have to say up front that JoePa is a dear friend of mine…I’ll tell your listeners the truth as to why he still does it. He is fearful – and he looks back at Bear Bryant as the example – he is fearful that he would not be with us if he stepped away. He is a man that doesn’t fish, doesn’t play golf…he has no other interest other than his family and football. And he’s just afraid what would happen with the rest of his life if he walks away from it.”

Remember this isn’t Musburger analyzing but rather JoePa admitting he fears dieing once he retires. It should be noted that while I’m not a fan of Penn State I am a fan of JoePa. This could be a brilliant negotiation ploy by JoePa’s agent. Get that man a raise.

If you think about it JoePa might be on to something here. After all Behr Bryant died just 28 days after announcing his retirement from Alabama.

So it’s understandable. If I gave up writing, I’m pretty sure I’d die or, even worse, get some work done. Charlie Weis feels the same way about that fourth whole turkey that JoPa feels about football.

If Brent Musburger walked away from announcing, I think some of us would live longer, or just breathe easier.

Michigan and Toledo are still competing among one another

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on October 16, 2008

 

So you thought because the gun sounded that marked the end of the Toledo/Michigan football game it would end there? Think again. Now the football teams are competing to see which school can rack up the most arrests.

If you think things are bad at Tennessee then you haven’t noticed the state of Blue and Maize at Michigan because it’s dire. See the photo above? That’s Cleveland wide receiver Braylon Edwards, funny…he’s wearing a Penn State shirt and yet he went to Michigan. Talk about a cold shot. Then again maybe he thought he was pledging support for the new Thundercats movie. At least it wasn’t a Toledo shirt.

Well things have started to get worse, at least for Rich “Dirty Sanchez” Rodriguez. According to the LA Times:

Steve Kampfer, a fourth-round pick of the Ducks in 2007, remains hospitalized in Ann Arbor, Mich., after he was attacked by a University of Michigan football player early Sunday morning.

Kampfer, 20-year-old defenseman on Michigan‘s hockey team, was thrown head first onto the sidewalk after he and a friend were confronted by a group of young men, university police said. A Ducks spokesman said that Kampfer suffered a fractured skull.

According to the witness, Kampfer and an unidentified friend were walking southward on Church Street when three unknown males caught up to them just past the intersection with Willard Street.

The man walking with Kampfer turned around as the group approached and said something the witness could not hear.

The witness said two of the men walked past Kampfer and his friend, shoving them aside, and then the third picked up Kampfer and slammed him into the sidewalk. Kampfer’s friend yelled at the group, but the men continued walking south on Church Street, the witness said.

He said Kampfer wasn’t moving and appeared to be unconscious after the attack.

The witness described the person who hit Kampfer as a short, athletically built blonde male. He said the attacker was accompanied by two other men with athletic builds and blonde hair. All three were wearing jeans and black shirts that read “Get Wet” in red or orange on the back, according to the eyewitness.

According to University Police Lieutenant Robert Neumann the victim was picked up and “body-slammed” which is extremely sad in all honesty. I know losing to Toledo hurts…but damn, however it was the best tackle in Michigan all fall.

No word on the Atomic Leg Drop after the slam.

Mike Milano, a redshirt junior on the Michigan football team is the prime suspect.

First…the messy divorce from WVU, then the transfers, then the losing & finally Braylon Edwards showing up for an interview with Monday Night Football while wearing a Penn State shirt on, and now this?

LONG LIVE RICH ROD!!!

Granted Toledo might have gained an upset victory over Michigan last Saturday but their football players aren’t necessarily any smarter.

Take team captain Nick Moore & Albertson Alexandre for example. They decided to pull an all-night celebration only to get arrested outside of Ryno’s Bar & Gril on Sunday morning after a drunken fight.

Moore, a senior and team captain, and Jason Link of Columbus were involved in a fistfight at 2:30 a.m. Sunday in the establishment’s parking lot, according to police.

Albertson is defiantly a non-mensa member

Alexandre, a junior from Miami, repeatedly approached the officers, ignoring numerous commands to leave the area, according to the report. After approaching an officer and tapping his firearm while trying to get his attention, Alexandre was taken into custody, according to police.

Talk about the smart thing to do…mess with the Po Po’s gun….brilliant. Next time just politely ask the officer to taser you in the nuts.

Wait…the Toledo paper is actually called The Blade…that’s disturbing. The Toledo Blade would make a fine addition to the Mystery Men.

They must really love their football in Toledo, to go this crazy after beating Western Michigan. Or was it Central Michigan?

Oh wait those teams have more talent than Michigan…my mistake.

So far Toledo is still leading Michigan except this time score is 2-0. Toledo
