|1 day 12 hours ago||What Harbaugh has||
What Harbaugh has accomplished already is epic, and I don't believe that word is an exaggeration. He took a talented but disorganized group of guys on a 5-7 team, and built one of the best teams in college football.
Another observation: the B1G is also headed in a good direction for the most part, and the increased level of compeition is attractive to good players.
But no one I can recall has built a program the way Harbaugh has. It's fascinating to watch it happen.

As Harbaugh says, this is a championship game. Even a team having a bad year can be dangerous.
I'll be happy with a win.

I corresponded with him a few times. In private communications, he was pretty reasonable, even if his columns were sometimes "challenging."
56 is way too young to pass away.

Is this the same ESPN that had Oklahoma, LSU, Stanford, Tennessee and Notre Dame in their preseason Top Ten power rankings?

2016 hasn't been good to them. But they're still going to show up and play hard. I'll be happy with a win; style points aren't necessary.

Wiscy's defense is for real, but OSU's offense is more real. Remember, we left points on the board with missed FGs against them.
OSU by 21.

I wish him the best. Young people need to decide what's best for themselves, even if that is somewhere other than UM.

Early playing time, but there's a serious risk of being dismembered.

This was truly wonderful. Thanks!
The best was the thing about poking the wolverine.

They also beat the greatest Green Bay Packers team in 1963.
These games weren't the worst NFL teams v college all stars, they were the NFL champions vs college all stars, and they happened every year until the mid 70s, so that's into the Super Bowl era.
If you look into it, the games were often pretty close, and every so often the college team won.
Now, no doubt the pro teams weren't taking it all that seriously in comparison to league games, but they do say something, and the college teams had never played or trained to gether before; they were like today's college all star games. Just a bunch of guys.
All that said, I think there'd be a lot of guys potentially hurt, and ended careers, and it's no wonder that NFL-bound players didn't want to risk their careers on such games.

Then again, if Harbaugh says it's going to be treated like a championship game, it's a championship game.
I'm sure that's how Rutgers approached their game against mighty Howard.
But don't ask, "Howard who?" Because I don't know his last name.

Well, here's an opinion that seems to agree with me:

I don't know about you guys, but one of my little brothers is stronger, healthier and bigger than I am, and could kick my ass any day of the week.
So I'm not sure this is an epithet worth bothering with.
Still, this is a year we have a better team, and we should win.

It's just a little bit of fun; this particular game needs a little hype to get non-UM people at all interested. Otherwise it's a sleeper.
Oh, and there's still that little matter of revenge for Rutgers' win in 2014.

Trap game? Consider the looming battle with our permanent historical rivals in Piscataway.
Fortunately no team today has a squad featuring the football gods that propelled Rutgers to their first ever Big Ten win. Against Michigan. Yes, that Michigan. Our Michigan.
Who can forget the immortal Kemoko Turay stealing victory from the jaws of defeat with his unforgettable field goal block?
I can't. I'm sure that it is not only the great Brady Hoke who has Scarlet Knightmares, knight after endless knight. For it was that game that broke Hoke; it was that game that made Hoke a joke.
Many of our current players were on that team. Many of their players were coming up under the Immortals who beat Michigan.
The blood has dried a little, but I say:
Who's with me?

Cowherd's difficult job is to keep people engaged instead of changing the channel. So he's over the top and controversial? Big deal. Feuillitonism at its peak, Hermann Hesse might say.
Pare it down to the essential message: he says Michigan beats Wisconsin on Saturday by a wide margin.
I have no problem with that!
