fair point that
Yes its a long shot but this is IMO Michigan's most liklely path to the playoff:
- UM over OSU
- PSU over MSU
- Iowa over Nebraska (they can't lose this)
- UM over Iowa
- Clemson over UNC (concede spot 1 to Clemson so that UNC isn't a threat)
- Ok St over Oklahoma (think 2 loss Michigan can get in over 1 loss Ok St..at least more likely than 1 loss OU)
- TCU over Baylor
- Alabama should probably beat Florida too unless Florida loses to FSU. I could easily see them taking 2 loss Bama over UM to get 2 SEC teams in there.
ND vs Stanford is interesting. I think they could get in both ways, but it would be harder if ND won. I think the strength of Michigan over OSU/Iowa is bigger than Stanford over ND/P12S champ. Plus Northwestern is a common opponent and we know how that worked out for both teams.
Following last second loss to MSU on Saturday, the mass media sure is playing up the future Buckeye departures to the NFL, questions about Meyer's leadership, loose lips sinking ships, and questions about team cohesion after the loss:
I did not expect this for an 10-1 team heading into big rivalry game, but there you have it.
I'm sure Ohio State will bring their best and try to end their season on a spectacular note in Ann Arbor.
I'm just surprised that Urban Meyer wouldn't re-assert control and put the kabosh on all the prima donnas players and their divisive comments.
As for future NFL depatures, I don't know that these talented players would have stayed anyway had they beaten MSU on Saturday. I think most were preparing to go anyway, because they can.
Should be a great game on Saturday for the seniors on both teams regardless.
This is nice. Dennis Norfleet and his team are both having good seasons. Tuskegee is 9-2, with a 26-16 win over Catawba College last weekend in the opening round of the Division II playoffs. Tuskegee plays North Alabama on Saturday in the second round.
Here are Norfleet's stats for the season. He's been playing running back, and he's the team's leading rusher, punt returner and kick returner. It also looks like he had an 82-yard kickoff return that didn't result in a touchdown. So he still hasn't officially taken a kick to the house. His stats:
RUSHING: 83 carries for 646 yards and two TDs
RECEIVING: 8 catches for 140 yards, no TDs
PUNT RETURNS: 9 for 93 yards, no TDs, long of 35
KICKOFF RETURNS: 14 for 307 yards, no TDs. long of 82
So, you want to hang with Michigan Alumni to watch a game. But, the "MGobar finder" is very out dated.
Chances are, there is an Alumni organization that hangs in a bar close to where you are. Or, someone from the local Alumni Club can make recommendations better than locals on this board. Here is a simple, snark free way to find a bar:
Use the Alumni Club Finder to identify a club by a State:
- Click on the U of M club for that state
- Contact the people listed under “connect with us” (Twitter, FB, or LinkedIn)
- Ask them questions to meet your needs
- Get in your Uber ride and enjoy the night.
