Pete Bigelow and Mike Rothstein preview Saturday’s Michigan-Penn State game
Last week, I correctly predicted Penn State would score 33 points and was within 3 points of Minnesota’s total. Not bad (the Redskins vs. Bears pick was even better).
This week, the hated Michigan Wolverines come to Happy Valley as a terrible team that is bailed out by its all world quarterback Denard Robinson. Robins has [...]
Devon from NittanyWhiteOut.com has the questions this week:
1. Was Penn State’s win over Minnesota a step in the right direction, or are any feelings of goodwill overshadowed by the fact that, well, Minnesota is just really, really bad?

After a hiatus, the guest prognosticator returns for this week’s Washington Redskins vs. Detroit Lions game. My old neighbor J.J. moved away to Michigan 25 years ago, but we’re still in touch.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — As characters go, Brer Rabbit is just about persona non grata in the Disney empire. Song of the South, which included Brer Rabbit cartoons, has never been available on home media and was last released in the theaters in the 1980s. I have never seen it or read any of [...]
I think we all thought that Jim Riggleman’s return to the Washington Nationals dugout was already official, but apparently it was not until yesterday. A press release came out at 5:23 p.m. yesterday confirming the Rockville, Md. native would manage the Nats again.
Riggleman’s buyout for 2011 was a mere $100,000. He made $600,000 last season [...]
