Our quarterback can lift a keg without breaking a sweat.
Their quarterback can’t lift a glass without looking like someone threw a drink at him.
You’ve gotta be able to handle the pressure.

This whole Big Ten TV- cable pissing match is starting to get ridiculous.
How silly is it getting? Jim Delany wants an apology.
From a cable company. The man is detached from reality. Cable companies don’t apologize for anything. Delany should know that – he’s a frickin’ Comcast subscriber, for God’s sake.
What does he want an apology for? The bastards have been dissing his wimmen! And his schools! How could anybody suggest that Eastern Michigan at Michigan is a “second tier” game without insulting everything we hold sacred about the University of Michigan? And we all know that when Comcast suggests that people wouldn’t want to pay for Iowa volleyball it’s just code for “we hate women”.
The nerve of some people. The unmitigated gall.
By the way, while we’re getting easily offended, what do you think Delany meant by this?
“In the Midwest, when you’re talking about a women’s sports team, you talk about them with respect,” Delany said.
So, in the South, or the Northeast, you don’t have to?
Methinks an apology is in order.
Jerrell Powe, a massive defensive lineman about whom his momma said last summer, “Jerrell really is a good child, but he just can’t read,” is trying to get into college again.
The problem is, the University of Mississippi, where Powe was previously committed, is a little gun-shy.
I can’t imagine why. After all, he’s got a representative (not his guardian) who’s not above throwing his weight around with a subtle threat here and there:
Asked what kind of reaction he thought he’d get when he called other schools to say Powe is available, Barnett said: “The first thing they’re going to do is sh– in their britches. And then after they get that cleaned up, they’re going to say, ‘What do we need to do to make this happen?’”
Well, shoot, that’s easy. All a school has to do is say they’ll take a kid who has yet to prove he’s admissible right now. And that shouldn’t be a big deal, either. After all, he’s got – you knew this was coming – a lawyer who urges schools to “have faith” that Powe has taken all the proper steps to address the NCAA issues with his academic profile in the year since he was denied. You sense he hopes that works, but he sounds almost wistful about the other possibility:
… But for now, Jackson’s more concerned with setting up Powe’s next move, although he said he really hoped this “case didn’t end up in court again.”
Coach O, for once, has no comment.
