I know it's the Detroit Lions and they are what they are. A terrrible football team until proven otherwise. Furthermore, I hate to blame refs for a loss, but I'm gonna blame the refs for a loss. Just take a look at the video.


Feet Down... Hands on ball. TD!!! Then... ASS down, hand down, back down, bounces and still has ball.... Rolls over to get up and leaves the ball where is... Yep still a TD. Even if all that didnt happen and he had the feet down and hands on ball and would have stumbled out of bounds or pushed out, that still would have been enough for a td. But if you are going to stay in bounds after the catch apparently you need to keep the ball in hand till the next weeks game. I expect this rule to be reversed for next season, if there is one.

Deja Vu

Didn't us Michigan fans see this last year. A blowout win against an overwhelmed opponent in the opener and a scintillating win over Notre Dame. A Top 25 ranking only to see the bottom fall out. Don't get me wrong. I'm not bailing on the Wolverines, but its a little too fast to start with the "Michigan is back" talk. I don't wanna hear how Denard Robinson is the early leader in the Heisman chase. I heard it last year about Tate Forcier and last I checked he had a towel over his head, pouting on the sideline. His future is now in doubt. Just wait and see what happens when they hit the Big Ten schedule. I'm not saying they'll tank like last year, but it'll be a lot tougher than UConn and UMass. And before you tell me Indiana is an automatic "W", remember they took Michigan down to the wire last year in the Big House. Which was the last time they won a Big Ten game, a game they probably should've lost. Call me cynical, I just feel they have more to prove until I feel comfy as a Wolverines fan. Just stop all the Heisman and conference title talk. We were at the same point last year and it was downhill from that point on.
