Peppers at 10, which seems low.
I predict Michigan rises from the grave and wins out the season.
We go to the Rose Bowl and murder OSU after murdering OSU.
Brian put out in a recent blog his answer to a question he was asked regarding when the team began rushing the student section and asked readers for responses and recollections.
After significant wins, (1997 win over OSU, leaving Michigan undefeated in the regular season and headed to the Rose Bowl,
and the last-second Manningham catch to beat PSU, for example) the fans rushed the field. I don't ever remember the team rushing the stands, even as a one-off kind of event.
The team began rushing the student section on a regular basis during the first year of the RR era, and only after a win, of course. I remember at the time the feeling of it was the team's response for the fans being "all in." Since the RR wins were not at the level of significance as mentioned above (perhaps only the comeback win against Wisky), the fans would not be rushing the field, so the team rushed the fans. It has been occurring ever since--and might I add at every home game thus far during Hoke's reign.
Westland John Glenn (Mich.) senior WR Da'Mario Jones has committed to #Michigan - full story coming: http://mbd.scout.com/mb.aspx?s=162&f=1088&t=10277488 …
Wouldn't be surprised if the staff spoke with Conley and they decided to fill his spot with a WR. I don't think this means Treadwell is off the table.
Week nine lines and over/unders are up and that means MGoBlog's 238947324th best weekly post is back.
Recap (game, who covered, by how much, over/under, by how much):
Michigan State @ Wisconsin: MSU (10.5), under (-2.5)
Iowa @ Northwestern: Northwestern (5), under (-4.5)
Purdue @ Minnesota: Minnesota (19.5), over (+21)
Michigan @ Nebraska: Nebraska (11.5), under (-25.5)
Indiana @ Illinois: Indiana (13), under (-10.5)
Ohio @ Penn State: Ohio (12), over (+8)
Notes: MSU and Minnesota were upsets ATS, Ohio/PSU was a PK.
If you picked last week, see how you did here.
Week Ten (line listed is for the home team):
Illinois @ Ohio (-27.5, +/- 51.5)
Michigan @ Minnesota (+12.5, +/- 46.5)
Penn State @ Purdue (+3.5, +/- 51.5)
Nebraska @ Michigan State (+2, +/- 44)
Iowa @ Indiana (-1.5, +/- 55.5)
I know both Michigan and Penn State looked fairly bad last weekend (and Minnesota looked pretty good...against Purdue), but I don't see any way those games are that close, especially PSU/Purdue. For that matter, the over/under for Ohio/Illinois seems crazy low considering they just put up 35 on one of the three best defenses in conference. That game seems like it will be worse than Ohio/Nebraska was, although Illinois does have a history of playing tough in Columbus against highly ranked Buckeye teams. Like always, what do you say this week, MGoBoard?
All of Denard's snaps and none of Bellomy's. Come at me Lewan.
