Jim Harbaugh whines like a baby

After one of the greatest games in the history of the Ohio State/Michigan rivalry, all Jim Harbaugh could do was whine about the officials. Sure, he’s probably crushed by this loss. His Wolverines were playing a great game until they blew it in the fourth quarter and in overtime. But this classless display of whining after the game will stick with Harbaugh for a while. He comes across as a baby.

Ohio State beats Michigan . . . again

We expected this incredible rivalry to heat up again after Jim Harbaugh arrived in Columbus, and today’s game lived up to the hype with #2 Ohio State defeating #3 Michigan in double overtime.

This has to be a crushing loss for Michigan, as their defense stuffed the Buckeyes for most of the day. But Ohio State made the big plays when needed and JT Barrett shook off a miserable first half to come up with clutch plays down the stretch. The Buckeyes have now won 12 of the last 13 games, and Harbaugh is now 0-2 versus Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes. The rivalry is back in the spotlight with this instant classic, but the Buckeyes still have bragging rights.

Jim Harbaugh whined like a baby about the officiating after the game. Perhaps he realized this was his best shot with a senior-heavy lineup, while the young Buckeyes have been playing many freshmen and sophomores. Ohio State will be even tougher to beat next year!

Kevin Love explodes for 34 first quarter points

Much of the talk this offseason revolved around Kevin Durant and the Golden State Warriors, with little attention paid to the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers after all the hoopla died down.

But the Cavs are even better this year, and Kevin Love is one of the most important factors. Love became much more comfortable with his role as the Cavs finished off their championship run last season, and now we’re seeing how potent a comfortable Kevin Love can be throughout the season. His 34-point first quarter last night is just one of many examples.

The Warriors are starting to reach their potential, but the Cavs are waiting . . .

Ridiculous punishment for Notre Dame

I’m not a Notre Dame fan. Frankly I root against them most of the time, so this isn’t a take from a rabid fan who can’t be impartial.

The NCAA has caught Notre Dame in an academic scandal, and has decided that the Fighting Irish will have to vacate wins over several seasons.

This punishment is idiotic. It punishes all of the players who didn’t do anything wrong. It distorts actual results on the field, and just proves again that the NCAA is out of touch.
