    My favorite Michigan game ever - a 61-7 beatdown of Houston in 1992. Michigan was throwing bombs late in the game with their 4th string quarterback, future NFL TE Jay Riemersma, late in the game. After the game, Gary Moeller was asked if Michigan ran up the score. "That game was for the SMUs and Eastern Washingtons of the world". Along with the 95 against SMU, Houston scored 77 against Eastern Washington, all on touchdown passes by starting QB David Klingler. 

    This game felt like the Houston/Miami game with Klingler. 

    The Coogs had run up the score on Illinois awhile back (EDIT: actually the week before) as well. I remember it because Moeller mentioned them in that same presser and said something to the effect of "you don't do that to a Big 10 school."

    WAR is weird in general. There are some guys it just loves for no real reason. Guy hits 15 homers with an OPS of .793, gets a WAR of 5.7. Another guy hits 45 homers with a .935 OPS and has a WAR of 4.9.

    Most of the time it's good but there's a ton of headscratcher cases. 

    I guess the question is this. WAR - what is it good for?

    If TK & co are serious about growing new stars, they could do a lot worse than having their young guys work Ziggler & Shelton. Both those guys would also make interesting additions to BCC.

    Shelton, absolutely. Ziggler, not so much. His WWE presentation was all about being a showman and "having great matches" which pretty much goes against the entire BCC ethos. Ali OTOH would be a solid choice... all you need is for BD to endorse/fast-track him for the group.

    I imagine Shelton could go back to Japan as well.

  4. I have no horse in the race but I absolutely love how Coach Prime has completely revitalized that deader-than-disco Buffs program. They are turning into must-see TV.

    Meanwhile, Iowa State gets hosed by the refs at Ohio after they blow the call on a late field goal try.
