TO THE HOT TAKE CANNON
10. Texas A&M
1. Harvard of course..
After seeing Gardner play twice now, I am taken aback by his presence on the field, and it is beginning to feel like the Michigan Qbs of old. One can feel it by watching him play, as he is a total gamer, is quite heady, and is very imposing. He is bringing athleticism to the pocket type Qb that is very effective and efficient. Evidence is the safety he avoided, and also the incredible td he ran when he tiptoed the sideline and got the pylon. While watching Denard it has often felt he was bringing Qb skills to an elite-skilled Rb, but watching Gardner its taking a true pocket passer and adding great ball skills and athelticism. Wow, the future is looking bright at Qb for next year.
Rivals released its initial Rivals 250 for the class of 2014. Michael Ferns is a 4-star.
Here's a list of Michigan offerees on the list:
I was feeling a little verklempt this morning, thinking about Denard's final two games, and hoping he gets to play his last one in the Big House this weekend. I found this video on Youtube, and it's all Denard. If someone wants to embed this, that would be great.
Last week certainly simplified things. The leaders are done and in the legends we're left with:
- Iowa 84%
- Ohio State 38%
- Minnesota 91%
- Iowa 83%
- 2-0 32%
- 1-1 58%
- 0-2 10%
- 2-0 76%
- 1-1 22%
- 0-2 2%
Probability of winning the division: Nebraska 91%, Michigan 9%. That may sound grim but I'll bet it's a lot better than Mathlete's odds of winning on Saturday after NW got that last first down.
For what it's worth, Nebraska would be a one-point favorite over Wisconsin and Wisconsin would be favored by two over Michigan. At Sagarin Nebraska would be favored by half a point and M/W would be a toss-up.
Since we are giving out Legends' Jersey Patches this late in the season to seniors like Kovacs, what say we give Roy Roundtree the #1 jersey for the last three games of his career (maybe four if something crazy happens)? Is it an insult to Desmond and the 21 patch to do so?
