Michigan was 3-7 at the start of the game against Northwestern; Wolverines had surprisingly won at Minnesota to retain the jug the week before. Brian's text from that game, in the yellow box, mentions 3-7 Michigan playing Northwestern (who was 7-3 at kickoff).

1981 Northwestern went 0-11; scored 82 pts while giving up 505.

Between 1999, when Buffalo rejoined Div I, and 2006, the team did not win more than three games a year. In the three seasons before 2007, Buffalo's record was 2-9, 1-10, 2-10. Gill's squad won as many games in 2007 as they had in the preceding three seasons.
In 2008, they played in the first bowl game in program history.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||Agree.||
Spack is also a Purdue alum.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||True,||
but he only had three seasons; back then (1977-79) head coaches were usually given their full initial contract, typically four or five years. Prior to Moeller's arrival, Illinois was usually around .500 in won-lost record; they declined to 2-3 wins for the three years he was there.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||In the spirit of fairness,||
at the close of his recruitment, Malik's statements to the media expressed the higher level of comfort he ejoyed with players and coaches in EL. Now those upperclassmen and the former Defensive Coordinator have moved on; it may be a different atmosphere there.
I wished he had come to play in Ann Arbor; but he made his choice and (like all of us) needs to live with the result of his choice. He has experienced a Rose Bowl win, and a CFP appearance; I think he'll be fine.

But their east coast regular season schedule was never as tough as the other national title contenders. For fun, check out the Lambert Trophy, given annually to the best FBS team in the East. Penn State has won it an impressive 29 times; the second most frequent winner, with 7 trophies is Army (YTA).

the article says he's made enemies during his time in Ann Arbor, it does not specify where those enemies are.
We know that many of them are in SEC territory and in other Big Ten football programs.

Late sixties in Allentown, PA. I had an evening route for the first year, which really cut into my after-school schedule. Lots of walking because about 15% of the houses took the evening paper in 1965 (TV news was having an impact).
Switched to a morning route the for four years, not as much walking because the morning paper was much more popular, probably about 70% saturation. I loved reading the paper at 6:00 AM while the streets were quiet, especially in spring, summer and fall.
Going door-to-door to collect ~$2.50 per fortnight ($1.92 for the evening paper) was part of the job, too. Once every two weeks, I'd walk downtown to pay for my papers; there were two excellent pinball opportunities along the way ...

I hate to think what I would have sounded like in the middle of my Senior year of High School on National TV.
|1 year 1 week ago||Tonight?||
It's still Saturday, Pittsburgh plays at Cinci tonight.
Seattle at Minnesota kicks off noon-ish CST Sunday (tomorrow).
|1 year 1 week ago||Cook?||
|1 year 1 week ago||KC, Pgh, Minn, Wash||
Chiefs are rolling.
AFC matchups OVER.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||You make some good points.||
Since players are generally larger than when the two decimal digit standard was imposed; perhaps we're ready to move to three digit numbers. Perhaps Mr O'Korn would like #555.
Or, perhaps we're ready to advance to hexadecimal: #A5 for you, Mr O'Korn?
I could support either of these proposals, but together they seem to be overkill. Of course, the combination would have allowed Ruddock to wear #DAD.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Hahaha||
It's hard to imagine anyone appoaching the level of douchebagness which is Charlie Weis.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Well,||
ESPN has been accuracy-challenged for its entire history; this was overlooked in its early days when it was run on a skimpy budget and the relative handful of talking heads were on for 12 hours at a stretch.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Expectations||
Expectations can be a terrible burden.
|1 year 3 weeks ago||What GM,||
would want to hire Chip Kelly, after the experience in Philadelphia?
From genius to unemployed in 16 weeks, wow.
|1 year 3 weeks ago||Did you ever know||
a troll who waited for an invitation? Generally, they just show up, invited or not.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||Odd?||
Personally, I find Indiana University of Pennsylvania odd, but I guess my beef is with those who named Indiana, PA.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||Who?||
Who has it better than us?
|1 year 6 weeks ago||And,||
Alum96 types upper and lower case; avoids ellipses ...
|1 year 7 weeks ago||Which is surprising,||
because he had such a great week of practice.

I know it was nearly sixty years after your death, Dr. Angell, but cumong man!
|1 year 8 weeks ago||1989 : yes.||
2015: not so much.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Second key to happiness:||
Avoid double posts.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||One key to happiness:||
Not being stressed about things over which one has no control.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Now I understand.||
A photographer with a huge lens was on the field during timeouts in the first half. I thought he was taking pictures of the various senior day recognitions (dancers, etc), but he was taking individual shots to stitch together to make this panoramic picture.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Great writeup.||
I grew up in Pennsylvania, have been to State College a dozen times, but yesterday was the my first gameday experience. My wife and I were wearing maize and blue and _every_ interaction we had with PSU fans was positive. There was grumbling about some PI calls (wtf, every call should go your way?), but fans will be fans. I had several Penn State fans tell me to crush Ohio State next week (of course, I was telling them we'd be rooting for them next week).
Ice Cream from the Creamery on campus is delicious, and we met the Glascow brothers' grandparents there! All in all, a fun trip.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Same here.||
I thought OSU -13 was a little high, but I'd have bet the farm on OSU -9.5; and that was when I thought Cook would start albeit banged-up. Saved myself a bundle by not being able to bet.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Hmmmmm,||
looks like you're the fourth person to pick UMich 38-24.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||So,||
you're calling a stop on a two point conversion attempt by Penn State late?
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Congrats to the Volleyballers!||
They came close in Ann Arbor; it's great to see them get it done in State College.
Let's Go, Blue!
|1 year 8 weeks ago||23-16. Michigan||
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Wait,||
can we get credits for time wasted, er, spent on the board?
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Hmmmmm,||
Is Hunter Rison a 2017 4* wide receiver?
If so, this "news" has already been posted.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||+1 for Dan Marktonio||
Dark Mantonio could be too easily misinterpreted.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Nice work!||
So many layers ... so little time.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Utah @ Washington||
100% chance of rain in Seattle (high of 55 F) accord to NWS.
We'll see how well Utah play in the water.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||FWIW,||
Jed's an owner. Trent Baalke is the 49ers GM.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Winged Helmets;||
designed to help QBs find their receivers before television required contrasting jerseys; now assist coaches diagnose defensive breakdowns in coverage. Interesting.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||So,||
"straight from the horses mouth," eh?
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Okay,||
people over 40 can have eyesight, video skills and judgement just as good as people under 40. Mike Pereira was born in 1950, so he's older than both of us. There should be some objective screening of replay officials which involves candidates not currently considered.
I would not qualify, because I could never be completely objective about college football teams.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||The targeting rule has problems,||
and these problems should be addressed.
But there is another problem, the replay officials in the booth need an upgrade, too. Often these replay officials are older refs who can no longer run up and down the field. I not sure they've watched too many games on tv this century, or are comfortable with the technology. Get some neutral observers in their late 20s / early 30s; they don't need to be on the site of the game. Mike Pereira always seems to get the calls correct (meaning I agree with him) when consulting on Fox. It is possible.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||So,||
I take it you aren't a fan of House of Cards? I found Kevin Spacey's breaking of the fourth wall a major distraction.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||If he's under contract,||
the Lions cannot offer him anything; to do so would constitute tampering, against NFL rules.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||I thought the same thing.||
And what a cool, collected performance on Michigan's final drive.
