the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
I was watching highlights from the 2006 Notre Dame game, and it got me thinking about about how great it was to beat the hell out of a quality team.
Obviously its been rough the past couple years, but one thing that would really make me feel good would be destroying one of the following opponents:
- Penn State
- Northwestern (borderline)
Just curious what everyone's opinion is on the possibility of this happening.
Penn State seems like the most likely candidate to me because of the uncertainty at quarterback and their losses at LB.
...until the David Molk-led offensive line plows open holes that Michigan's stable of running backs and quarterbacks will gash through en route to pay dirt -- eventually leading to Molk's selection as the 2010 Rimington Award winner.
Also, there are...
days and a wakeup...
...until T-Wolf and the rest of the Michigan secondary begin pre-season practice with an eye on proving all the doubters wrong.
Sorry if anyone is getting upset about all of the NCAA 11 posts, but I have not yet seen this topic. New to NCAA 11 is the option to sub players into what ever position you want for all different formations, this feature existed on the old generation of console games but this is the first year that the next gen console games have this option. I am starting Tate at QB, but I am wondering what are some good formations (and subsequent location) to sub in Denard for trick plays or just to run with him? I am trying some different locations but I have yet to find any trick plays where thte RB/WR has the option to pass. Any ideas from those who have messed around with this feature?
A frequent recipient of MGoBlogerati disdain, Ryan Mallett just may have undergone a fairly significant maturation since his matriculation at Arkansas. Check out this article in which he credits Michigan and in particular Lloyd Carr and Chad Henne as major factors in his current success.
Mallett, who has two seasons of college eligibility remaining, said his leadership skills have been shaped by Michigan and Arkansas. "When I first went to Michigan I was young," said Mallett, 22, who missed the Razorbacks' spring practices because of the foot injury. "I had a great guy in front of me in Chad Henne. He was a very good leader and I watched him and I learned from him.
"I was still young when I came here (to Arkansas). Going under the tutelage of coach Carr and (Arkansas) coach (Bobby) Petrino -- they really helped me understand what I need to do. I've always felt I've been a leader, but I've just matured with the direction of those coaches."
Mallett...said he signed to play for Michigan because he "had fallen in love with the campus and the coaches."
Perhaps with age and experience Mallett has undergone his own transformation to complement his transfer. Meanwhile, with the Heisman campaign underway, Mallett is surely receiving some significant public relations coaching from Arkansas. Of course, both can be true, can't they?
Just saw this on the crawler while watching DC United vs. Seattle, and checked on ESPN to confirm.
Looks like UNC is being investigated for agents and other benefits. This is very preliminary by the sound of the article, but when you are interviewing players there definitely is some smoke. Knowing nothing about Butch Davis outside of the fact he built those crazy Miami teams and then failed in the pros, and the fact that he is pulling in great recruiting classes at a school not particularly known for its football exploits, it will be interesting how this plays out. Personally, I'm not that surprised that there are at least some whiffs of improprieties.
I ran into these two in AA last week. First one to identify them both wins 50 theoretical dollars. Obviously the one on the left is a bit easier than the one on the right.
