2010 Census Population 308.7 Million

2010 Census Population 308.7 Million - Michigan will lose a seat in Congress after census results show the state population fell by 0.6 percent over the past decade. Michigan was the only state with population loss.

The Census Bureau announced Tuesday that Michigan's delegation in the U.S. House will fall from 15 to 14 beginning in 2012.

That represents a continued decline since 1970, when Michigan's representation peaked at 19.

Experts say the culprit was a deep, decade-long recession that sent many residents to other states in search of jobs.

The loss of a House seat will hurt Michigan's clout in Washington and also will reduce its share of funding for federal programs such as highway construction, education and health care.

White House downplays political impact from census

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama's spokesman says he doesn't expect the results of the new census to have a "huge practical impact" on national politics.

The spokesman, Robert Gibbs, said he has not seen the new data, which was being released Tuesday. Despite migration to Republican-leaning states in the South and West, Gibbs said he didn't see any reason why both parties would not remain competitive in those regions.

The once-a-decade government count will be used to reapportion the 435 House seats among the 50 states. Texas, a strong GOP state, is expected to pick up House seats.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
