Todd must die. I wasn't at home to watch him kill Andrea at the usual 9 pm air time, so I spent half of my night trying to find a way to watch the latest Breaking Bad episode online. Todd is to blame for the death of two completely innocent characters, the slavery of Jesse, and for my tardiness; that's one crime too many, bud.
Speaking of Psychos
Michigan's commitments are playing out of their damn minds on the field, Michael Ferns included:
Michael Ferns' dad says the #Michigan LB commit is playing "on another planet like a damn psycho case" right now. So there's that.— Steve Lorenz (@TremendousUM) September 21, 2013
Jabrill Peppers nearly killed a young man on the field before taking an interception to the house. His hit gets him honors for the week.
Shaun Crawford is playing well:
@TomVH Shaun Crawford: 9 carries, 124 yds, 2 TDs 3 receptions, 28 yds, 1 punt return 63 yds, TD, 1 kick return 25 yds. 240 all-purpose yds— Brad Bournival (@bbournival) September 22, 2013
As is Wilton Speight:
.@WiltonSpeight had 3 passing TDs and 1 rushing in a 30-7 victory tonight. Full stats will come later on.— Steve Lorenz (@TremendousUM) September 20, 2013
Speight's trainer apparently sees him as the next Big Ben:
No. First of all, Speight will be on the opposite end of the QB spectrum, managing games and using accuracy instead of sheer ball speed. Second, Speight is a responsible young man who won't grow up to give Americans the heebie jeebies. Just no.
Class of 2015 quarterback target Alex Malzone made this clutch play to keep Brother Rice undefeated on the season:
His stock is rising in my book.

General Notes and Multimedia Items
Michigan's poor showings against Akron and Connecticut aren't getting to Mason Cole:
Keep doubting twitter, no matter how it happened Michigan is 4-0, couldn't be more happy to be a #MichiganMan— Mason Cole (@MasonCole52) September 22, 2013
Michigan would have to finish the season roughly 7-5 or worse in order for its commitments to start falling off. Most of these kids have been bonding and recruiting in favor of the Wolverines for months now; don't expect anyone to jump ship.
George Campbell will represent Michigan in next year's Under Armour All-American Game:
East Lake 2015 WR and #Michigan commit @GeorgeCampbell0 has accepted an invite to the @UnderArmourGame in St. Pete. Congrats, my man!— Ryan Bass (@Ry_Bass) September 20, 2013
Michigan has seven commitments in the 2014 game. All-American bowls are suddenly much more worth your time.
Finally, four-star 2015 athlete Brian Cole will visit Ohio State when they take on Wisconsin. Michigan State failed to maintain its lead with the receiver/corner combo player, and now the Buckeyes will look to seize momentum in his recruitment.
