Sept. 22-23 Sport Thread – WOW

September 22nd, 2012 at 12:40 am by under Bill's Blog, Sports, Weather

   WOOD-TV  is getting some awesome evening ratings this weekend.  Saturday night we had Notre Dame and Michigan.  They kept it close into the 4th quarter (Notre Dame is now 4-0).  Brian Kelly’s been a successful coach wherever he’s gone (GVSU, CMU, Cincinnati and now Notre Dame.    Sunday night on WOOD, TV-8 is the New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens.  Sunday Night football has had awesome ratings so far this year and this should be a good match-up.  Both teams are 1-1.  The Lions lost, but what a finish!  The Lions got 2 touchdowns in the last 18 seconds to tie the game.  The Bears beat the Rams.  The 49ers were upset.  BIG and very exciting last-minute win for CMU over Iowa – one of the best games of the weekend.  WMU topped Connecticut and the Spartans took care of Eastern Mich.   Grand Valley won a shootout with Ohio Dominican 46-41.   Ferris St. topped Walsh (a school in Ohio, they have shuffled a couple teams in and out of the GLIAC) 20-14.  Hope fell to Illinois Wesleyan 20-14.  Kalamazoo College came up short at Centre College in Danville KY  35-23.

The Tigers lost a double-header on Sunday.  The White Sox also lost, so the Tigers are one back.

    Can the Tigers get into the playoffs? I like the Tigers and they are much too talented not to make the playoffs. I think, Leyland needs to go. He is way too “old school” for today’s game. Here is the question, if the Tigers do end up getting into the playoffs and do well, does Leyland come back?
    Michigan State should win big against the Eagles of EMU. A steady diet of Bell should be on today’s menu! The Wolverines have a tough match up. They are going into ND’s stadium. Attention! Attention! Michigan and Offensive Coordinator, Al Borgess! Denard Robinson is NOT a pocket passer. He is best when tucks the ball and runs! That said, Fitz needs to be a part of the game plan. Also, after getting the ND defense set up for a run, call the bubble screen with Gardner!
    The Lions should win by 2 touchdowns. Something tells me Megatron get 2 or three of them on Sunday!

    Cabrera cranks number 42! He should get the Triple Crown and the MVP! Does Josh Hamilton beat him out?

      Miggy Will Be The MVP…!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hamilton is injured I thought, but even if he isn’t Cabrera has a real shot at the Triple Crown! And yes, it’s “common sense” that Leyland needs to go. Go Tigers and lets hope for an Angels sweep of the White Sox.

    I am huge Wolverines fan! Denard you single handily gave that game to the Irish.
    We had a couple nice momentum shifts and our offense was actually better than than the Irish Offense. However, the difference in the game and the number one reason that the Irish won was because of turnovers!
    Michigan’s Defense looked GREAT!
