Internet Explorer 7?

Hmmm...I just downloaded the upgrade and it is quite impressive compared to the older versions. They ahve actually gotten into this millenium by adding the Tabs and some customization features that Opera and Firefox use. Not sure if I like it yet, but it is a pretty nice feel so far.

I have used Firefox and Opera almost exclusively for 4 or 5 years now, but have always had IE on my PC simply because it is needed for some things that may not work in the others. I also have to check a few different e-mail accounts from the same server often so I keep a few browsers open so I don't have to log in and out of them all the time.

Not sure how I feel about IE 7 yet, but I am pretty impressed so far comparitive to the old ways.

I actually rooted for Notre Dame....

The Fightin' Irish! I rooted for them when they played USC for the love of Michigan. I am sick just thinking about it now. What's worse is that the Lions are probably going to draft Brady Quinn now too.

This has been a pretty disappointing year for Michigan sports I think. Sure most fans would be happy to see a team get to the World Series, one in the NBA Eastern Conference Finals, have their colleg football team in a major BCS Bow, and get to root for a team to lose as many games as possible in the NFL so they can get the #1 draft pick and possibly see the GM get fired.

Not me. Too many close, but no cigars this year.

Can't really hate on the Tigers. No one expected them to even have a .500 record. It was a dream season really. Still hurt to lose when you thought they were the better team. That's why they play the games they tell me from St. Louis.

The Pistons? They dominated the entire league all season and get bounced by the worst NBA Champion of all time. I can safely say that the Miami Heat was a Stern Title. No way should Fatione Walker, White Chocolate, The Mitten, and Kidney Mourning be allowed to win an NBA title. It is a disgrace and a shame. That team singlehandedly ruined my love of basketball for the time being.

Now this? Michigan getting jobbed for no other reason than no one wants to see a rematch? Oh no...we can't see the best 2 teams play again. That would not make everyone happy. I was under the impression that the BCS was there to get the 2 best teams int he title game. Apparently that is not the case. Great work NCAA.

It seems sports makes me more angry than happy these days. Dwayne "Baby jesus" Wade was named the SI Sportsman of the Year. Mr. Doubtful himself. HE has every nagging injury in the book according to him and yet he still goes out and wins Academy Awards for flopping. If he kicked you in the nuts in front of a cop he would get 2 free throws out of the deal and you would get a night in the clink.

Florida Gets BCS Nod to Play Ohio State

It is one sad day. The BCS has been exposed yet again. Did any of you watch Florida play yesterday? Have you watched Michigan this year too? How is it possible to determine from yesterday's game that Florida was better than Michigan? Blows my mind.

Take a look at some ballots from the Harris Poll that helped determine this debacle:

Paul Zeise:
No. 1: Ohio State
No. 2: Louisville
No. 3: Florida
No. 4: Michigan

Larry Keech:
No. 1: Ohio State
No. 2: Boise State
No. 3: Michigan
No. 4: Wisconsin
No. 5: Florida

Robert Lawless:
No. 1: Ohio State
No. 2: Michigan
No. 3: Wisconsin
No. 4: Louisville
No. 5: Florida

Ray Melick:
No. 1: Ohio State
No. 2: Florida
No. 3: Louisville
No. 4: Michigan

Tim Neverett:
No. 1: Ohio State
No. 2: Florida
No. 3: USC
No. 4: Michigan

^^^LMAO! Are you freakin' kidding me!?

Gene Ponti:
No. 1: Ohio State
No. 2: Florida
No. 3: LSU
No. 4: Michigan

Jim Walden:
No. 1: Florida
No. 2: Ohio State
No. 3: Michigan

and the rest:

Say all you want about your Florida crap. Michigan is better than they are and everyone that saw them both this year will tell you that. The BCS is nothing more than the "Who I Want to See in the Big Game" Poll.

Michigan will play USC in the Rose Bowl now. No one cares.
