Overpaid, Underwhelming Sportswriters

In an interview on WTKA with Sam Webb and Andy Evans, Jim Carty, our favorite Michigan sportswriter, addressed Michigan's upcoming season outlook...

According to Jim, Michigan could be a sub .500 team, or win 10 games.

Oh really??? Well, that Ann Arbor news salary was really put to work on that one wasn't it Jim? My 6 month old nephew in Los Angeles could've predicted that. As much as I may not believe it sometimes, we are getting closer and closer to no longer needing sports media experts.

Jim Carty. The biggest boob in sportswriter history.

I know of many many many bloggers (see links on right) who know a helluva lot more about the ins and outs of Michigan football, and other Big Ten schools, than guys like Jim Carty. They are not only better writers, but they actually post honest information, and are not afraid to be critical when the situation warrants it, unlike always being critical like Carty. And they also don't go out and waste untold amounts of dollars digging up fake news just to sell subscriptions or get online readers.

Now I'm not saying I don't think we need antagonists now and then. We can't all be homers all the time. I'm certainly not saying Michigan will go and win 11 or 12 games next year. Anyone who reads this blog knows how I feel. Next year will be a crap shoot. This Michigan team is a great representation of why I think pre-season rankings are not only meaningless, but a waste of time and effort.

Should Michigan be ranked? Of course no one knows. I'm still trying to figure out who should've been ranked #1 at the end of last season. And I'm getting tired of these so-called experts telling me that Michigan will either suck, or be great. I can make that prediction, and I'm just another jackass blogger! It's because of guys like Jim Carty that folks soon will no longer need sportswriters.
