Where will Michigan be ranked after this weekend? MSU?
Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
MSU will be higher than us, and (sadly) should be.
They don't look "great", but they do look more balanced.
Picked a pretty shitty week to quit sniffing glue.
A lousy week to quit drinking.
Amanita Muscaria. Defense looks AMAZING.
MSU seems to be maturing quickly. We'll see if they can stop Denard, but their offense is above average, and their D is just better than ours.
And their special team play.
michigan 18 msu 21
UM 38 (woo field goal) - MSU 35
does not matter, just need to keep winning. I hope they are ranked ahead of us.
Don't care where UM and MSU end up in rankings. Can already hear the bitching people will be making if MSU jumps us (they will). It'll be settled on the field next Saturday.
We'll be 19 or 20, they'll probably be in the 15-17 range.
Did you ever finish those man. God I loved reading them this summer.
One is left, half way completed. Exam week and girlfriend problems and death in the family put things on hold. I may do the finale by Thanksgiving week in time for OSU. It would be timely at best. We'll see as this semester has been busy busy. Like busy.
No rush, I know a bunch of us that dont say much but read a bunch enjoyed them. sorry about the death in the fam.
I believe we will be within 2 spots of each other.. Probably both sub 19.
Around where we are now, there hasn't been any upsets thus far.
That said, it's really unimportant. We need to get at least 3 wins out of our last 7 games now I'd say.
No idea, but we'll be at right about the same spot. It'll be interesting to see how our D works against an offense that isn't tailor made to shred us.
was tailor made to shred us and they moved the ball at will.....at this point I am terrified of every offense we face and have ratcheted my expectations back to my original prediction of 7-5.
Penn State game and you'll feel better....
i think MSU will go all the way up to 13 or 14. we will probably move up one or stay where we are
And that is good for us because I dont think he has it in him. They have a good run game and we have been able to stop the run, we've struggled with the air assaults
"we have been able to stop the run"
Sure about that?
about MSU all year, they're a good balanced team.
However, I'm completely confident that Rich Rod will unveil his secret weapon next week and handily crush Sparty in the final seconds.
already a legend, thats where he ranks.
MSU will jump to 19. We will drop to 20. Wisconsin will drop to 21. Move all teams up one if USC continues to poop the bed at home against Washington.
msu might be 17-15 range and we'll stay right where we are...until we beat them of course.
Right now, we are exactly where we were last year. We won all of your non-conference games and beat IU. Now it is time to see how much better we are than last year. Beating Sparty would be a good place to start.
...is going to give us a lot of grief next weekend. Just hope our defense plays beyond their limitations and gets a critical number of key stops.
Doesn't matter where we will be ranked. Go undefeated and we will play for the national title.
Yeah.. About that..
MSU #17- U of M #19
I could care less where the two teams are ranked, though on October 10th I fully expect UM to be ahead of MSU at 6-0.
Also, I think people need to hold back a bit anointing MSU until they actually play a road game. They played very well, but this Wiscy team looks to be worse than last year and had some bad luck go against them in East Lansing. I expect it to be a typical MSU-UM game, but I'll believe MSU is making the move up the Big 10 when they prove it on the road.
USC's loss just helped us move up some.
Denard will win that game.....at least I hope.
MSU 19 not score ranking
