Peppers at 10, which seems low.
Scroll down and take a look at JD's twitter.
(1) either Lewis has grown, or Ambry isn't 6'0
(2) Lewis has some up's
I was looking over the 2015 season again and found that both Northwestern and Florida won 10 games as well last year. I decided to check back in recent memory to see how many times we've done that. I chose a slightly arbitrary starting point of 1992 (berth of the first official national championship that year, shortly after Bo retired, around the time the 85 scholarship limit started, Penn State joins the Big Ten, etc).
First off, we've gotten a total of 24 of those "signature wins" over quality opponents since 1992. That's roughly 1 per year (a little less). Moreover, most of those wins were when less games were usually played in a season. 16 of those 22 wins were before 2006, when the NCAA expanded the regular season to 12 games.
Here are seasons in that timeframe where we had TWO OR MORE victories over opponents with at least 10 wins...
1993 @ Penn State, vs Ohio State
1996 @ Colorado, @ Ohio State
1997 vs Ohio State, vs Washington State
1999 @ Wisconsin, @ Penn State, vs Bama
2003 @ Minnesota, vs Ohio State
2006 vs Central Mich*, @ Notre Dame, vs Wisconsin (yes, I know Central is a MAC team)
2015 vs Northwestern, vs Florida
Additionally I looked up the seasons where we won against one team with at least 11 wins in the same year and they are...
1996 @ Ohio State
1998 vs Wisconsin
2003 vs Ohio State
2005 vs Penn State
2006 vs Wisconsin (12 wins)
2011 vs Va Tech
To summarize, I think that while recent struggles from at least 2007-14 are well-documented, in the 85 scholarship limit era of parity we haven't been as horrible as people say against top-level competition
It's a slideshow, and it's only one day, and a whole bunch of other things that say take this and everything else of The Opening weekend with a grain of salt. But Michigan commit Benjamin St. Juste continues to impress in Oregon. Sam Webb also twittered some positive tweets about his play against top WR Tee Higgins in 7-on-7 action yesterday. I believe St. Juste was a relative unknown last year, who got an offer when he attended one of Michigan's camps. Pretty impressive.
You're just not going to find a more impressive looking cornerback than St. Juste who hails from Canada. He's a legit 6'3", 190 pounds and he's so long. He was really good on Saturday at staying hip-to-hip with wide receivers then finding the ball when the quarterback tried to test him. He's an ideal physical outside cornerback and his stock is going to climb with his performance this weekend.
Donovan Peoples Jones, Nico Collins, Dylan Mccaffery among others are on the blue team.
OSU commit JK Dobbins finished with the high score with 146.76. It's pretty, pretty good.
Three Wolverines finished in the top 30.
AJ Dillon finished 9th with a score of 135.39
O'maury Samuals finished 21st with a score of 126.54
BSJ finished 25th with a score of 123.72
Other notable finished include former commit Jeremiah Hollowell who finished 8th, Cass Tech micro-CB Donovan Johnson who finished 10th, long shot LBs Baron Browning and Willie Gay who finished 14 and 18 respectively.
Here's a link to the top 30 scores that someone can embed below because I can't figure it out on mobile
