Peppers at 10, which seems low.
Apparently Dantonio loves making fun of his opponents, playing Sandler's "The Waterboy" the night before MSU faced Fickell's buckeyes.
Pretty impressive, and kind of dick at the same time.
I listen to the fan 97.1 a lot, here in cbus and usually they do a lot of Michigan bashing. However, today on two separate occasions they were giving gratuities to UM. Chris Spielman does a little 15 min. show Tuesday thru Thursday and he was telling everyone the team to look out for was Michigan. Then on "The common man and the Torg" (a show that runs from 3-6 weekdays) they had a great chance to bash Michigan. They were talking about the most overrated B1G team and skimmed right over Michigan and picked MSU! They mentioned how MSU was only rated in the coaches poll and if they had to choose a team ranked in both polls, it would be Illinois at 19 and not Michigan at 11 and 12 respectively.
I smell a Columbus conspiracy!
Enhanced viewing of the Defensive UFR for the Minnesota 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 any play, one click takes you to the video clip of the selected play.
The video is mostly without audio. This is due to the source videos from MGoVideo.com and not a limitation of the viewer.
You can access the launcher page for the UFR viewer here:
Note that this is a different location than what you might have used if you had checked out the utility in the past few days. I have been having some hosting issues which should be resolved by next week with a permanent host site.
Interesting to see how this has progressed as the season has gone on. Can't wait until seperate defense and offense rankings are available as well. I believe that comes around week 7 or so? Anyways
Why Michigan be so good?
Now I'm not an expert on how FEI rankings work, but to the best of my knowledge, they clean up things that raw yardage totals don't.
What in the hell are you talking about?
Remember when SDSU accured a bunch of meaningless yards late in the game against Michigan? That's what I'm talking about.
Yeah, if your defense starts off at it's own 20 and allows 3 points, it did just as good, probably better, than if it starts on the other teams 5 and gives up 0 points.
But wait, this thing actually thinks Michigan is going to win more than 1 of it's remaining 7 games...
Shut up, alter ego, have you seen any Big Ten games this year? Even Vegas is starting to think Michigan might be pretty good this year.
So....expectations slowly raising, everyone? Any other thoughts on things you guys can find interesting in this weeks rankings?
Obviously, Gee misspoke... he meant to say "foster child for compliance"
