Didn't see either of these posted.
ESPN put out a couple College Football stories this morning involving Michigan. Only posting this because there's nothing else going on right now amiright?
First is weaknesses for every way-too-early top 25. Michigan's bit:
Experience, plain and simple. The Wolverines sent 14 players to the NFL combine and have only five returning starters. Only one is back on defense. Luckily, there's plenty of young talent and a great coaching staff, and Ohio State made the playoff last year with a similar lack of seasoning. But the lack of proven veterans will be a concern until proven otherwise. -- Bennett
They also did a hypothetical 64 team tournament for football, with Michigan hypothetically losing to eventual hypothetical champion Alabama. There is more about how they hypothetically got to that hypothetical position.
(1) Florida State 30, (3) USC 27: There has never been any doubt about Deondre Francois' toughness. In the opener of the two historic Final Four football games, the redshirt sophomore takes his biggest step yet as a quarterback -- and on his biggest stage -- by throwing two fourth-quarter touchdown passes to rally the unbeaten Seminoles to the national championship game.
(1) Alabama 21, (5) Michigan 16: Who didn't want to see this matchup? Nick Saban vs. Jim Harbaugh. While the two coaching giants don't come to blows over satellite camps during their pregame chat, their two teams trade blows on the field in a punishing struggle that comes down to the Crimson Tide holding the Wolverines on fourth-and-1 just inside the Alabama 20-yard line. Harbaugh is furious afterward about what he says was the kind of "SEC-tilted spot that Paul Finebaum would have made."

Stupid fuckers almost ruined our chances with one of the best recruits in the 2017 class.
As we're in a small lull between the BTT and the start of the tournament, here are some good readin's from Football Study Hall on the demise of MSU football which may be relevant to your interests. Nothing that is earth shattering but interesting to see that the smart guys over there are also seeing a tough climb for MSU to be nationally relevant again
Beyond the off the field issues that are plaguing Michigan State, the question remains of whether they’ll be able to rebuild their pass defense to allow their aggressive scheme to work against the increasingly potent opponents on the schedule. The prognosis is grim and it appears that the window has indeed closed on more championships coming to Lansing, MI.
Several Michigan athletes and coaches, including Hutch, Jamie Morris, Dugan Fife and Andy Mignery participating in a fundraising dancing competition later this month for Chadtough.
Former Penn State AD Tim Curley and Senior VP Gary Schultz plead guilty this morning to charges of endangering the welfare of children in the Jerry Sandusky sexual molestation coverup. The misdemeanor charge carries with it the possibility of 5 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
Seems that they may be willing to testify next week in the case of Former University President Graham Spanier.
