Weekend Wrapup

More Brawl News
The NBA came down very hard on the players involved in Friday night's brawl at the Palace between the Pistons and Pacers. Ron Artest was suspended for the rest of the season(72 games). Stephen Jackson was suspended for 30 games. Jermaine O'Neal was suspended for 25 games. Ben Wallace was suspended for 6 games. Five other players involved were suspended for one game a piece. I think these suspensions were right on the money. The NBA had to give harsh penalties on the players in order for this to never happen again. I don't like the Pacers but I feel bad for them; this stupid brawl really hurt their championship hopes. I also feel bad for the NBA because off how terrible it made the league look.

A Thorny Rose
The Michigan Wolverines are headed off to the Rose Bowl as Big Ten champs even after an embarrasing 37-21 loss to their chief rivals Ohio State. Ohio State was at home and just plain outplayed Michigan. Michigan is still going to the Rose Bowl because Iowa beat Wisconsin and Michigan held the tie breaker over Iowa(both teams were 7-1 in Big Ten play but Michigan beat Iowa). Yes, it was an embarrassing loss but Michigan fans should still be fairly happy with Michigan's second straight chance to play in the Rose Bowl. Hopefully they will not get lose like they did last year.

Another Terrible Loss
The Lions played another horrible offensive game in a lose to the Vikings. They were leading the Vikings 19-7 before the Vikings came back to score two touchdowns to take the lead. Joey Harrington threw a interception on the final drive of the game to seal the victory for the Vikings. Harrington and the rest of the offense again looked horrible. Lions' fans can starting look to next season already. The Lions themselves can also starting looking for another quarterback to lead their team. Whatever excuse you want to use; Harrington just plain isn't up to the task.
