In last year’s NCAA Tournament run, the second-seeded Terps advanced all the way to the Elite Eight. They beat Navy and Louisville in College Park, then came back from an 18-point deficit to knock off defending national champion Texas A&M, 81-74, in the Sweet Sixteen.

The 15-7-0 is awkwardly obsessed with Faith Hill’s legs

The 15-7-0 is awkwardly obsessed with Faith Hill’s legs

Posted on 17 September 2012 by Glenn Clark

As always, this week’s 15-7-0 is brought to you by Roofing By Elite. Visit them at roofingbyelite.com. We make 15 observations about football ELITE, 7 about football “not so ELITE” and one “zero” who deserves to sleep on the roof from outside of football.

(As a reminder, we don’t do Baltimore Ravens game analysis here. We do PLENTY of that elsewhere. This is about the rest of the world of football.)

The “ELITE” 15…

1. Towson football continues to be a hell of a way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

Let’s recap. Beautiful afternoon…great crowd…competitive game…key win over a conference rival…national TV. Yeah, all of that sounds good to me…

Here was the video shown at Unitas Stadium before the game. It honestly makes me want to go hit somebody…

But if Rob Ambrose REALLY wants to get his team fired up, perhaps he should go the lip-dub route fellow CAA coach (and former Baltimore Colt) Bill Curry went…

Righteous.

2. As of this moment, the Houston Texans are the best team in the AFC.

And also, the Jacksonville Jaguars are not particularly good…

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txnPXpJ7_m8

The offensive numbers in this one for the Jags are absolutely staggering, by the way. Blaine Gabbert finished 7/19 for 53 yards (53 yards!), the Jags finished with 117 total yards of offense and did not convert a single third (or fourth) down attempt all game.

“Jaguars football: still inexplicably happening!”

3. As of this moment, the San Francisco 49ers are the best team in the NFC.

This was a big win for the 49ers, so they decided to turn to Alex Smith, Michael Crabtree and….ummm….Aziz Ansari? after the game…

Also, I’m sure a lot of Niners fans told Smith they wanted him to be more like Tom Brady, but I don’t think they expected this…

Also…apparently Owen Wilson is now a 49ers fan or something(?) and also decided that he wanted to do everything in his power to look like Eric Byrnes these days…

At least he wasn’t reading “Don’t Jump.”

Oh, and Jim Harbaugh and Jim Schwartz got along just fine in the postgame, but that’s presumably because Schwartz wanted to see if Harbaugh could help him get the tail from out between his legs.

4. Manti Te’o went through a lot this week. Even if you don’t like Notre Dame like me, it’s hard to not be happy for him.

Both the girlfriend and grandmother of the Fighting Irish LB passed away during the week leading up to the game at Michigan State, making his effort all more emotional…

I can’t help but notice that ND’s big win came just days after “Rudy” Ruettiger threw out the first pitch before the Orioles won their 14 inning marathon against the Tampa Bay Rays…Oriole Magic rubs off?

Next up for the Irish is Michigan. Here’s Denard Robinson doing something quite cool against UMass Saturday…

And hey, at least Spartans LB Max Bullough still has his awesome tattoo…

5. So, Stanford pretty much just owns USC at this point.

Yup. So much for Matt Barkley’s “unfinished business” I guess.

Also, an excellent amount of Stanford trolling in this one. First, USC’s drum major was breathalyzed on the way in to Stanford Stadium…

Then came their own band leader…

Not bad.

6. Speaking of Stanford, there were a few moments where Andrew Luck looked like that other guy against the Vikings.

I mean, he ISN’T that guy (you know the guy we’re talking about…the guy who plays in Denver now) yet, but this wasn’t bad…

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jG5mwY-Fmgc

Hey, the Vikings did have ONE effective offensive play…

Whatever works, I guess. Congratulations to Chuck Pagano on his first win as a NFL head coach. May there never be one against the Ravens.

Oh, and I thought it was nice that the teams decided to give everyone a nice preview of Sunday night’s WWE Night of Champions Pay-Per-View…

Who says replacement officials can’t keep control of games? I mean, how were they supposed to see that after Donald Brown spit that green potion in their eyes?

I guess fans in “The Friendly Heart of the Midwest” are excited?

7. Eli Manning threw for a Tim Tebow season’s worth of yards against the Bucs.

510 yards? 510 yards? I mean, what the hell? Was he playing the University of Colorado?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jenI-bUCeWY

It looks like everything is fine, at least according to Tom Coughlin in his postgame handshake session with Greg Schiano…

U mad bro?

Former Morgan football coach, Colts DB Thomas dead at 84

Posted on 22 May 2012 by WNST Staff

Former MSU Coach-Administrator Thomas dies at 84
Jesse Thomas, who died at the age of 84 last Wednesday, spent more than 40 years at Morgan State University.
While at Morgan State, Thomas was the defensive coordinator for legendary head coach Earl Banks and was Bears’ head coach from 1985-87. In addition, he worked as an assistant athletic director, coached track & field and was the National Youth Sports Program (NYSP) coordinator for 28 years.
Thomas was an outstanding athlete who participated in basketball, baseball, track and football during his prep career at Flint Central High School in Michigan, making him possibly the greatest four-sport star in the school’s history.
During his high school days, Jesse was known as a triple threat performer in football as a result of his ability to run, pass and kick. Some of his achievements included: All-Valley, All-City and All-State in 1945. He was also City Athlete of the Year in 1945. He was the State broad jump champion in 1945, and set records as best hurdler (14.9) and City Pole Vaulter (12’2″). In 1946 he was undefeated in 16 events, and had the most outstanding performance in the State meet.
Thomas earned All-Valley second team basketball honors in 1946. He was also an outstanding pitcher in baseball at Central and the Flint City League.
Not only was he a fine running back, but he was also a defensive standout. His great exploits continued at Michigan State University. Thomas received Honorable Mention All-American in 1951 while playing under head coach Clarence “Biggie” Munn.
As a member of Michigan State’s track team, he won four first places in a Big Ten Conference outdoor meet in 1951. That same year he won four first place finishes in the Big Ten Conference indoor meet. He once ran a 9.6 in the 100-yard dash.
During a two-month tour of Japan, he represented the United States Amateur Athletic Union and earned 33 medals. He bettered the hop-step-jump AAU record with his 47 feet 8 inches. Thomas played professional ball with the Baltimore Colts as a defensive back with Don Shula (Miami Dolphins coach), Carl Taseff and Bert Rechicher in 1955-1957.
Some of the highlights of Jesse’s 1945 school year included:
• Touchdowns run from scrimmage-95, 84, 70 and 90 yard touchdown through four tacklers and reversed his field, causing the opponents coach to remark “he wasn’t tired, can you believe it.”
• Punt returns of 62 and 59 yards in the same game for touchdowns.
• Passing for touchdowns of 40, 46, 53 and 60 yards.
• Finished second in scoring in Saginaw Valley.
Thomas most recently finished up as an assistant professor at Morgan State and was the Kicking Coach under head coach Donald Hill-Eley in 2010.
Thomas is survived by his wife, Ida, and his daughter, Marzella. He is also survived by his two grandchildren.

Posted on 14 May 2012 by WNST Staff

The 14th annual ACC/Big Ten Challenge Presented by DICK’S Sporting Goods on Nov. 27-28 will be highlighted by North Carolina at Indiana, Ohio State at Duke and North Carolina State at Michigan, six programs expected to be highly ranked entering the 2012-13 season. ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU will combine to televise all 12 games of the two-day event matching top college basketball programs playing for conference supremacy and the Commissioners Cup.

All 12 games will also be available via WatchESPN, which delivers live access to ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and ESPN3 on PCs, smartphones and tablets to fans who receive ESPN’s linear networks as part of their video subscription from Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Bright House Networks or Verizon FiOS TV.

The 2012 Challenge involves nine teams ranked in an ESPN.com early preseason top 25, including five of the top nine: No. 1 Indiana, No. 5 Michigan, No. 6 NC State, No. 8 Ohio State and No. 9 Michigan State.

The ACC won the first 10 Challenges while the Big Ten captured the Commissioner Cup for the third consecutive event, including an eight to four win advantage over the ACC last year. In the event of a 6-6 tie, the Commissioner’s Cup will remain with the conference that won the previous year. 2012 Challenge highlights:

  • Off a Ratings High: ESPN’s telecast of Ohio State’s 85-63 victory over Duke last year was the highest-rated and most-viewed Challenge game ever, averaging a 2.6 rating and 2,618,000 households. The telecast propelled ESPN to its most-viewed Challenge, averaging 1,555,000 households, based on a 1.6 rating.
  • One more Shot at the Dozen: Duke, which has won 11 of its 13 Challenge games, will host Ohio State in its quest for an event-record 12th victory. Duke lost to Ohio State last year and to Wisconsin in 2009.
  • First Challenge Matchups: Four of the telecasts will feature first-time Challenge matchups: Virginia at No. 22 Wisconsin, Maryland at Northwestern, No. 9 Michigan State at Miami and Georgia Tech at Illinois.
    • In addition to first-time Challenge games, several of the teams are infrequent opponents: Michigan State and Miami have never met; Northwestern and Maryland played one other time, a Northwestern victory in 1958; Virginia and Wisconsin split its two games, Virginia in 1975 and Wisconsin in 1999; and Illinois has defeated Georgia Tech in six of its seven games, including the last one in 2001.
  • Tourney Teams: Eleven teams between the two conferences played in the 2012 NCAA Tournament: Duke, Florida State, North Carolina, NC State and Virginia from the ACC, and Indiana, Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Purdue and Wisconsin from the Big Ten.
  • Following a First with a Rematch: Boston College and Penn State and Nebraska and Wake Forest will follow first-time Challenge meetings with a second consecutive showdown in the event.
    • Boston College, which won its first five games, lost to Penn State last year, while Nebraska lost its Challenge debut to Wake Forest.
  • Threepeat: Five of the games will mark three-time Challenge matchups: North Carolina at Indiana (Indiana win in 2001 and North Carolina in 2004), NC State at Michigan (Michigan win in 2003 and NC State in 2006), Ohio State at Duke (Duke win in 2002 and Ohio State in 2011), Iowa at Virginia Tech (won by Virginia Tech in 2006 and 2009) and Purdue at Clemson (Purdue win in 2003 and Clemson in 2007).
  • Three and one more: Minnesota and Florida State will meet for the fourth time (Minnesota won in 2000 and Florida State in 2004 and 2007).

2012 ACC/Big Ten Challenge schedule (times and networks are to be determined):

Date Game

Here’s a truth. The Head and The Heart had one of the ABSOLUTE best songs of 2011…

Gotye is the band whose name you have NO IDEA how to pronounce but you just can’t get out of your head…

Fiona Apple once did a video in her underwear. It was awkward because 14 year old Glenn was both aroused and terribly disturbed…

I saw The Shins on Saturday Night Live a few weeks ago. I wasn’t sure I was into them. I’m into them.

9. Ralphie May (Friday 8pm Lisner Auditorium); Bret Ernst (Thursday-Saturday Baltimore Comedy Factory); Pablo Francisco (Thursday-Sunday DC Improv); “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” & “The Muppets” available on Blu-Ray/DVD (Tuesday); “The Hunger Games” opens in theaters (Friday); Beer, Bourbon & BBQ (Friday & Saturday Timonium Fairgrounds)

I’ll be giving away a pair of tickets to Friday night on Tuesday and Wednesday on “The Reality Check.” Not sure if Beer, Bourbon & BBQ is an event for you? I have a simple question. Does this look like something you’d enjoy?

What about this?

See you this weekend.

I’ve seen Pop Evil at RHL before. And think, THIS is amongst the notes from my life I’m actually willing to admit…

Dr. Dog is the type of band that everyone assumes I’ll really like based on the other acts I really like. They’re probably right, I’m just lazy.

I’ve never seen Rich Robinson solo. I HAVE seen the Black Crowes a few times. I know what I like. I like what I know.

You remember Drew Holcomb as the man who authored the song everyone was thinking about on Christmas after that TNT basketball promo. Let it come to you…

9. Henry Rollins (Friday 8pm Baltimore Soundstage); Charlie Murphy (Thursday-Sunday DC Improv); Aisha Tyler (Friday & Saturday Baltimore Comedy Factory); Robert Kelly (Thursday-Saturday Magooby’s Joke House), Gabriel Iglesias (Sunday 8pm Modell Performing Arts Center at the Lyric); Glenn Clark’s St. Patrick’s Day plans (Saturday whereabouts unknown); “The Descendants” available on DVD/Blu-Ray (Tuesday); “21 Jump Street”, “Jeff Who Lives At Home” and “Casa De Mi Padre” open in theaters (Friday)

Of note from this cornucopia…

Aisha Tyler’s arrival in Charm City allows me another opportunity to sing the praises of the show “Archer” on FX. She plays the role of Lana. I like to pretend that I’m Sterling Archer sometimes. I’m 28 years old.

Do you want to have the host of “The Reality Check” afternoons on AM1570 WNST.net visit your establishment Saturday to celebrate St. Patty’s Day? Tell me why your Bangers and Mash are the best in the area. I’ll be ALL IN.
