Peppers at 10, which seems low.
I find this absolutely unbelievable. So the NCAA will go after a few hundred extra dollars in unearned pay, but paying the legal fees involved is somehow ok. Even if you work for a Company that is paying you a salary, legal fees generally don't get covered if you were doing something corrupt.
Please don't make M pay for this on Saturday.

Here's Part II of the trilogy. This time Schofield sees the blitzer and saves the day, which I wasn't expecting to see until the third movie. The second movie is where it looks like the bad guy is going to win, isn't it?
Setup: Michigan has the ball fourth-and-one at their own 42 shortly after stopping Northwestern on their own fourth-and-one attempt. Michigan lines up in the shotgun with a slot and WR left and two TEs right. Smith is the RB. Northwestern plays 4-3 even with a linebacker (loosely) over the slot receiver, the CB on the line against the two TEs, and one safety rolled into the box.
Wha'hoppon: Schofield pulls on the QB Power to the right. The two TEs double the playside DE, and the RT and RG double the playside DT. The SLB comes hard for the gap between them, but this time Schofield sees him and stands him up so he can't blow up the play. Smith kicks out the CB, and the safety can't come up in time as Denard easily converts the fourth down. Michigan would go on to score a TD on this drive.

According to a recent report, here is a description of Molk's pre-game ritual:
"When talking about harnessing emotion entering Saturday’s game at Michigan State, Mike Martin mentioned that center David Molk has a pregame routine in which he head-butts a freshman to get his anger out so he won't snap too hard. …"

Enhanced viewing of the Defensive UFR for the Northwestern game is now available. The viewer is a web application that lets you step through the analysis play by play or search and filter selectively based on a wide range of criteria. For some plays, one click takes you to the video clip of the selected play.
However, this week's video is limited to only selected plays. The linked video clips are from a highlight compilation. The usual "Every Snap" videos from MGoVideo.com are not available this week on YouTube due to possible copyright issues. It is not my place to comment on the availability of these videos, so we will just have to see how this plays out.

Enjoy as best as you can.
