Marshall v. Georgia

My beloved Marshall Thundering Herd are on the road again this week, teeing it up between the "hedges" of Sanford Stadium. The Herd is coming off of an encouraging, but disappointing loss at Ohio State, which followed on the heels of a shocking home opening loss to Troy. In retrospect, Troy is a much better team than most folks thought, and Marshall appears to be a little better than it displayed against Troy.

Although Marshall had opportunities to defeat Ohio St. last weekend at the 'Shoe, credit must be extended to OSU kicker Mike Nugent. Nugent's 55-yard FG as time expired had the distance for 65 yards. Tremendous kick, to say the least.

Marshall made adjustments from week 1 to week 2 -- if Marshall can make similar adjustments from week 2 to week 3, Marshall should provide another challenge to a BCS school. If Marshall is able to generate turnovers as it did against OSU, the Herd-Dawg game should be much closer than the +19 the Herd is getting in Athens.

The turf at Sanford may be soggy from the downpour the SE has received courtesy (or rudeness) of Ivan. My sympathies to the folks of the SE - the last eight weeks have been hellish.

I expect a close contest tomorrow. Hopefully, the Herd will pull out another impressive road win (to follow up last years landmark win at #6 Kansas State) and set the tone for the rest of the season.

Go HERD!!

I agree,

I love PGA GOLF. and recently I have bought stock in it. Not like real stock on Wall street, but a stock market that is strictly for sports.

You have seen it? Its pretty cool. You buy issues for your favorite golfers and you make real money. Not like a fake stock simulator. I cash out Dividends each time your golfer plays in a tournament. Also I can sell my players stock when the price goes up.

check it out if something like this interests you.

This site has lots of data about dividends and game pots and golfers. It also has alot of information about how the market works.



See you there!
