landing spot. will be interesting to see how he does.
...days until Michigan plays and beats Hawaii for the first time since Tom Brady was the starter.
Which means just...
...Saturdays until football is back!
Saw some posters asking about Baruti yesterday. Looks like he's headed to Utah. Not sure if Beilein will continue to pursue 16' prospects.
In football related news, Lorenz & Clint Brewster put in crystal balls for DPJ to Michigan today. Expect for a flood of them to follow as they usually do when Lorenz puts in a crystal ball.
Simple article, has the SB Nation take on the Golden Nugget win totals posted in yesterday's thread. They've added the S&P projections from Bill Connelly. Something tells me that Alum96 (and I hope he returns soon) would caution against using S&P this way, but that may be a week-to-week thing vs. full season projections. In any case, Connelly is listed as a co-author so I assume the method has his blessing.
Items to note:
- Michigan has the second highest projected win total, of any team noted, per S&P.
- Clemson 10.04, Michigan 9.63, Oklahoma 9.62
- S&P is more pessimistic than Golden Nugget in most cases, though close overall
- OSU a lock on the 8.5 over? Not so, says S&P
- Large variances on Tennessee, FSU, Houston, and TCU
- Jason likes Michigan over 9.5. Bud likes OSU over 8.5. I like Jason.
Away game tickets now available to football season ticket holders with 50 or more points on a first come, first served basis.
Looks like the same deal that that came out a few days ago but for a much lower priority point total. It also doesn't have the Ohio State game.
Available games include:
Rutgers- $100 (limit 2)
Iowa- $85 (limit 4)
Please note that you must log in to your account first prior to
selecting away game tickets.
In only two weeks, we will see a whirlwind of satellite football camps. If I'm counting correctly, there are now 35 or more separate camps Michigan is involved in. Harbaugh has been very upfront about his purpose. He wants to help spread a love for the game of football. He believes that football is a great arena in which to teach many things, from teamwork to hard work to physical exercise to a host of other things. I happen to agree. In fact, I agree to the point that my son is gearing up for summer football, in preparation for the Fall season. While I seriously doubt my son will play in college, he is more than good enough to play in high school, and really enjoys the game.
However, many of you, while fans of Michigan football, would be strongly against letting your own children play football. This question is for you.
How can you justify being a fan of football if you are completely against your child participating in it? This just doesn't make sense to me. I don't mind those who hate football, and I understand that there are many people who for whatever reason, aren't capable of playing ball. But if you are a Michigan football fan, but won't let your kid play ball, help me understand how you reconcile that.
(Note: this question isn't about whether or not football is dangerous, or whether or not there is a threat of CTE or concussion in playing ball. It is solely about being a fan and at the same time being against familial participation in tackle football.)
