so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
Going from your bowl line-up:
Northwestern (L) (but this one to me is a toss-up. I lean towards NW losing just because they always seem to lose bowl games close).
Michigan State (W)
This is the other side of the toss-up coin. Although I think Minnesota will definitely win also. TCU is not good at all... they benefit from playing in a weak Big 12 schedule.. their record should be something like 3-9 on the season.
What about Minnesota convinces you they will beat Iowa State?
They got blown out in 4 out of their six losses.
Iowa State only got blown out twice.
Minnesota doesn't have a convincing win over an FBS opponent this year.
But I don't see MSU beating TCu, it would be close but I think sparky loses.
Denard Robinson......They're not going to catch him!
wait... I didn't see Ohio anywhere in that bowl lineup of yours... Guess I must have missed it.
Go Blue. That it all.
But I think Michigan beats S. Carolina...
I like Borges with a month to prepare in a NON-RIVALRY game. It's also Denard's last game so I think he'll play 3-4 different positions.
I see it being a game that happily pisses off ALL Michigan fans like the Cap. One Bowl vs. Florida in Lloyd Carr's last game when we're all yelling "WHERE WAS THIS ALL SEASON!!!!???? AHHH!!!!"
“True loyalty is that quality of service that grows under adversity and expands in defeat. Any street urchin can shout applause in victory, but it takes character to stand fast in defeat. One is noise — the other, loyalty.”
Or... it could end up like VT last year - Denard run left; Denard run middle; 3rd and 10 - arm punt. More like the narrative for every Denard game against good defenses.
A fully healthy O-line might help to quell the force that is S. Carolina's pass rush, but I really think our best shot to win lies on our defense stopping Connor Shaw
LOL - I see what you did there.
Should we point instead of fist pump during the Victors?
I remember this around 2007...

After living in Shreveport for 13 yrs I have to say I never thought it would be referenced here (cool story bro).
When is the bowl selection going to happen?
I'm kind of a big deal in Bolivia.
It'll leak before then though.

Wait, what about Florida and Georgia? I know one will go to a BCS bowl, but where is the other headed?
Florida to Sugar. Georgia to Cotton. Capital One gets first choice amongst SEC teams and they'll take Texas A&M (because of Johnny). Would have been cool to see Texas (likely in Cotton) vs. Texas A&M in a bowl game.
I keep seeing Florida to the Sugar Bowl and Georgia to the Chick-fil-A Bowl (vs. Clemson). It seems a little weird to me that Georgia would slide that far, especially after a good showing today, but we'll see.
Was #4 in BCS rankings heading into the weekend. If a team is ranked #3 in the BCS rankings and does not qualify for an automatic berth, there are guaranteed an at-large berth. Georgia might not fall that far but Florida will almost certainly move into the #3 slot.
How in the f could Hoke not let Denard play in the 4th qtr of the osu game. There should have been much more controversy over this. A sr qb's final game really?

If we play Mississippi State in the Gator Bowl, we need to bombard the Gator Bowl staff with emails about the cowbells. Noisemakers are listed in the "Prohibited Items" section of their website.
Hail to the college whose colors we wear,
Hurrah for the Yellow and Blue!
Yea, that was absolutely not enforced at all last time. Still have flashbacks of those damn things.
The world looks better through maize mirror tint.
Still waiting on backup.
noise maker tradition.
yep, I have a nervous tick whenever that I think fo that damn game. Sitting row 1 from for that debacle gave me Vietnam era PTSD
why we lost.
Georgia in Capital One Bowl!!!
Already discussed above. We can't go there by rule
If you're doing nothing, how do you know when you're finished?
StraightDave owes me a steak dinner
you guys know that the OL isn't going to improve over 15 practices don't you.
Not looking forward to playing anyone in any bowl game.
"I wouldn't want to belong to any club that would have me as a member" - Groucho Marx
But it seems as though you are. Yeah, who wants to see Michigan football anymore? Especially, oh what's his name Denard or something? play his last game EVER for the good guys? Along with the rest of the seniors... Yes please.
this is rediculous. Northwestern will more than likley be picked by outback bowl officials over michigan. Earlier in the day we were almost assured a capital one bowl game, now we get to go to the ghetto pitt in jax!!

let's be real here guys, Florida is hell on earth in general. Orlando, Jacksonville and Tampa are basically just different degrees of stankness
And one could mount an argument that, regardless of what their tie ins are, the Gator is a better bowl than the Outback. For one, the Gator's been around for a lot longer. And it doesn't have a shitastic corporate name.

erm, it is the Taxslayer.com Gator Bowl I'll have you know...
if it were the Outback Steakhouse Hall of Fame Bowl it wouldn't be nearly as awful, though it would still be worse.
yeah, and that's why 99.99999% of seniors retire there.
"I give credit to God, first and foremost" - Denard Robinson #16
I assume you're being facetious but yes, it's a state full of old people and hillbillies that's built over a swamp.
Denard is the only good thing to ever come out of Florida, that's just a fact jack
"it's a state full of old people and hillbillies that's built over a swamp."
Ah yes, the old "all of Florida is southeast Florida" misconception.
I think the hillbillies is a reference to Northern Florida. Not so much a misconception but reality.

For shame. You have forgotten the greatest receiver in Michigan history.

Yes, and I'm sure Floridians couldn't easily retort with the fact that the University of Michigan is in.... well, Michigan. Home of Detroit, Flint, Dearborn, and Lansing. I mean, anyone in their right mind would rather live in any of those cities over Tampa, right? But hell, you can always come back with the usual, "But Northern Michigan is really nice for 3 months in the summer!"
Stop the uniform changes! Contact Dave Brandon 734-764-9416.
To everyone from Florida, Michigan IS Detroit. They are one and the same. That's why the Florida bashing is kind of funny to me. Neither side is a accurate, but both sides do it.
What the hell is wrong with Dearborn?
"let's be real here guys, Florida is hell on earth in general. Orlando, Jacksonville and Tampa are basically just different degrees of stankness"
Says someone who I can almost guarantee has only ever been to those listed cities plus Miami/Ft. Lauderdale/Palm Beach. I thought the same thing, too, though, until I moved to Florida, so I'll cut you some slack.
What's the good part? It seems like Tampa, Miami, Ft Lauderdale, Jacksonville, Orlando, Palm Beach covers a pretty wide swath of the state's geography, at least the more populated parts.
The populated part, yes. Geography, no. It's kind of interesting to move here and realize that all of the vacation places (all of the places you listed) suck and there are great places that the vacationers just don't go to and know nothing at all about. To answer your question is tough. It just depends on what you're looking for, I guess. There are great remote and rural parts of this state that are absolutely beautiful that vacationers never go to, which, frankly, is great for the people who live here. There are also some neat non-vacationer cities. One perfect example, though, is St. Petersburg (categorically not the same place as Tampa, even though virtually everyone not from the area thinks it is). So many people go to the Tampa Bay Area, either flying into Tampa or going to Clearwater (or St.Pete Beach), and never know that St. Petersburg, itself, has great nightlife and one of the best waterfronts anywhere. Instead, they see Tampa (which sucks) or the beach areas (which can be tourist hell, although beautiful) and conclude that the whole area is the same, when it's not. My personal opinion is that everyone who says that Florida is hell, basing the on the tourist areas, is absolutely correct. I absolutely thought the same thing until I moved to the state the first time.
I can't stand. Check out the Panhandle and West Coast--seriously--beautiful and still largely unexploited. I'd never move back to Michigan, can tell you that. (My wife is a prof at FSU.)
Northwestern will more than likley be picked by outback bowl officials over michigan.
No way. The bowls are a business. NW has no fans and no one really wants them in their bowl. They'll go to the lowest possible bowl they are slotted for.
where we play or who we play, I just love watching my team play, Go Blue!!!
say you're scared of playing an SEC team? We had a tough sched this year and only got whooped in one game, the others were very winnable had we kept mistakes and crucial injuries to a minimum
First, the team that whipped us was an sec team. That game wasn't close.
Second, we didn't keep mistakes to a minimum all year. Why do you think we will do so now?
I am not so much afraid of an sec team, but I suspect that we will lose to most teams with superior talent (duh) and most sec teams curretly have more talent.
cause all sec teams = bama
my parents' main house is in palm beach so this works well for me. cha ching!
It ain't easy being cheesy
