Big Ten Football Morning Coffee: Denard Robinson to the Mets?
Rise and shine, friends. Here's what's going down in the Big Ten today.
Denard Robinson, to the best of our knowledge, is about as good at baseball as Denard Span is good at football. Which is to say, "never played the sport." But the Big Ten Network caught Robinson swapping jerseys with star Mets third baseman David Wright in the picture above, so the only thing we can deduce is that Denard Robinson is leaving Michigan to play for the Mets.
This. changes. everything.
Brian Bennett of ESPN.com argues that the playoff is a net positive for the Big Ten, since even getting one team into national championship contention every four years is better than, what, that team going to Pasadena instead?
We've said it here plenty of times, but once again: The Rose Bowl is not more important than playing for a national championship. It's amazing that the Big Ten loses sight of this so often.
Per AnnArbor.com, Jerald Robinson is still awaiting trial for vandalism charges after he allegedly destroyed a parking garage arm, which admit it, you've always wanted to do. He's not suspended, and his lawyer says he's still waiting on video evidence of the incident, which makes us hope the prosecutors don't have the video and are now furiously scrambling to recreate it and fabricate footage.
And they need like 30 takes.
According to the News-Sentinel, Purdue head coach Danny Hope wanted a plus-one system, saying that it would only add one more game to the season. Well, so would a four-game playoff.
The Nos. 1-4 teams were already going to play one game in the postseason regardless. They're not entering into the playoff after their bowl games. HEY GUYS CHECK IT OUT I JUST BEAT A FOOTBALL COACH IN AN ARGUMENT. EVERYONE PAY ATTENTION TO ADAM!
Wait—I'm told that's not an accomplishment. Dangit.
