"(I) think about 'The Lion King,' Simba gets hit over the head and (he's told) 'the past can hurt,' " Harbaugh said Monday afternoon. "'You can either run from it or embrace it and learn from it.'
Is Jourdan Lewis the best in a long line of four star, undersized Cass Tech corners to commit to Michigan? I think so. He appears to have surpassed all the others.
He is on pace to be a first team All-American. It would be nice if the string of underperforming ,smallish, yet highly rated CT players is coming to an end.
In fact, when looking at all the highly rated Cass Tech kids who have gone on to Michigan, I think he is the best since Curtis Greer (1979). Crazy. Plus, Delano Hill and RJS seem to be playing much better.
Are we finally in a position to UTILIZE and DEVELOP all the crazy talent from Wilcher's program? If so, that is significant for our program.
Yesterday was the most fun I've had at a Michigan football game in 20+ years. The crowd rocked. The band was great. The James Earl Jones lead in video was awesome. Then this morning, I wake up and see all these threads about Ohio State being scared and Gameday and Michigan State already using the injury excuse.
We have been waiting YEARS to have this morning. I know every game can't be 38 - 0, but damn, it's great to know that Harbaugh is at the helm, and the team is on board. And I couldn't be happier for the guys who toiled for the past few years and are finally getting a taste of what it's like to win the big games. Go Blue!
The only team in America to have more campus visits by the ESPN pregame show is Ohio State with 13.
Based on last week it looks like we are going to try to limit it to 3 threads a Sunday on this topic. (well until playoff rankings are released)
- Every other damn one
So this can serve as #3.
Sagarin #3: http://www.usatoday.com/sports/ncaaf/sagarin/
Just wanted to note after a crazy top 10 last week where about half lost only 1 lost this week (Oklahoma) with Utah in a dog fight at home in the 4th. Ironically Oklahoma was the #1 team in the Massey rankings which supposedly compiles all the other rankings together.
Based on general inertia of voters UM should move behind FSU (where NW was last week) which would be #12 this week with Oklahoma falling below UM.
Even if Utah ends up losing wouldn't make much sense to put them behind UM at this point based on head to head and beating weak ass Oregon so 12ish seems correct. On UM's side is we were involved in the only game this week featuring 2 top 25 teams... a strange quirk. But at 12 we'd be the 2nd highest 1 loss team in the country after Bama so that seems reasonable.
So an "inertia" top 15:
- MSU (haha)
pending win( if not drop to #11)
- Ole Miss
Goodbye - Oklahoma, NW.
If Cal upsets Utah then UM is prob #13 with Cal ahead of us.
Ok State, Iowa would be the 2 P5 unbeatens that voters could move ahead of Stanford ND types but doubtful. In theory MSU should drop but since they didnt lose tonight they might as well be ranked high even if a fraud so our win looks even better next week.
