In the Sports radio battle, as predicted WDFN rebounded to pummel WXYT. I tried to explain that WXYT's Fall number was an anomaly but nobody wanted to be rational. Here are some details of the WDFN rebound.
12+ WDFN regained the lead 1.4 to a 1.3
Men 25-54 WDFN did a 4.5 to WXYT's 3.1. DFN is ranked 5th while WXYT is ranked 12th
While WXYT has made inroads thank to The Big Show and play-by-play, this race still really isn't close yet. WXYT also lags way behind in revenue while WDFN is close to record highs.
As for WKRK, down a bit in Midday, total tankage in mornings. Middays are 4.1, down from a 4.3 in Fall and a 5.4 in Summer. Rover is cooked, he won't last the year.
Even an awful year on the field can't deter HUGE recruits from choosing Michigan. Texarkana (Texas High) QB Ryan Mallet has decided to become a Wolverine. This story appeared on the internet today.
Texarkana quarterback Ryan Mallett, the #1 high school signalcaller in the nation, has just now told GoBlueWolverine during his lunch hour that, "It is playing on 740 AM, at 2 PM ... it is a tape-recorded interview." And, he added, "I just gave it to the local paper too."
The 6-6, 240-pound flamethrower Mallett is a Wolverine!
Mallet is a HUGE get for the Wolverines. Many think he is the # 1 QB prospect in America. Classen (Notre Dame) v. Mallet (Michigan) could be a great story for years!
Thank you to all who have dropped me a note about my mom, I can happily report that she is improving.
She wasn't good over the weekend. It was odd, as soon as they moved her out of ICU she started to go downhill. She wasn't responding and was looking bad. They took her back to ICU and found a blood clot. After a procedure to fix the clot she immediately improved.
I talked to her on the phone yesterday and she was talking as well has she has since she had her surgery.
Jesus Christ are you a whiny pussy. You were fired a long time ago. Detroit does not want you back or you would already be here. Leave the fan and xyt alone. They don't like you. Detroit doesn't like you. Stay in Texas. Remember how great it is. Thats all you ever said. Austin rules. Stay there. Devote your blog to Texas. Everyone in Detroit forgot about you. Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha. Loser.
