Hell, even the school is saying "could still be innocent"! Preponderance of the evidence only means probably guilty.
Also, not a lawyer, but I think "due process" is a specific legal term, and the due process usually thought of that goes through the legal system isn't applied in a Title IX compliance suit.

LSU's defense isn't THAT much worse than ours, and that's just one game. Maybe Bama would score 21 if they played them again.
I think Bama is clearly one of the 2 best teams in the country. Certainly would be more worried about them than Washington. Michigan vs. Bama for the championship.
Having said that, I do like seeing Bama below what's expected on offense with defense and special teams TDs taken out. Certainly, it's not all luck because their D line is killing people and forcing fumbles because of that, but getting all the defensive TDs they've had this year feels like it has to involve a good deal of luck. I think we can take them.

I still wouldn't be surprised to see those guys do well next year. Ways was getting hyped up, but we know how that can go. Harris may be healthy (or maybe not, who the hell knows), but he must have fallen behind just because of the injuries if nothing else. Wait and see.

Seems people only neg when it's negative stuff about next year.
The way this program is going and Harbaugh's recruiting and how some of his guys are pushing through already, I'm not nearly as worried about next year as I was before. Not that I was really before, but I thought we were looking at some drop off. Wouldn't be surprised at all to see this keep rolling.

Eh, they're replies to WD's comments, so I'm sure WD noticed. Anyway, I just checked it out too and it's true. I've said it before and I'll say it again, WD gets annoying sometimes but he has a group of posters here who are obsessed with him and I assume they are miserable people with sad lives. Mgokev is definitely one of them.

Oklahoma isn't great, but I wouldn't say they're a nobody either. And again, it was a total beatdown in Norman. HOWEVA, I do agree that in most people's eyes a win over Oklahoma still means more than a win over a Wisconsin that has shown themselves to be much more impressive than Oklahoma.

Why does he have to take someone's spot? There's not actually a limit on analysts. Didn't you notice Harbaugh hired like 20 of them without firing anybody?
I also don't get why people are arguing Les can't be here because he was an HC for a long time. Where's the track record of that going wrong? Les is old. He loves Michigan. He may be totally fine with it. He strikes me as a pretty easygoing guy.
Having said that, I don't get why a few people here are obsessed with hiring him in some capacity. Who cares?
"There's no rule governing that?" Referring to Saban hiring Sark and having so many on staff.

I think he means because Clark was still in the game. But I disagree with him. Yeah, Michigan was rolling, but we weren't up anymore than State was on ND. You can't just give up on the game the moment you think you're doing well. Bigger comebacks have happened and hindsight is 20/20. It's a freak thing, It happens, unfortunately. Could have happened in practice.

lol exactly! That was my thought. Does Andrew Luck magically regain eligibility and come to Michigan? OK well then I guess Luck would be the QB.

Didn't Newsome only come because of Harbaugh? Was he committed under Hoke? Because I think it says a lot that the 2 guys who have pushed through besides veterans are Harbaugh guys. OL wasn't exactly our forte under Hoke.

Oklahoma recruits a lot from Texas, right? They'd have to lose out on that when they're not playing Texas teams routinely. They might go the way of once mighty Nebraska if they moved to the Big Ten, although it likely wouldn't be as bad since they still border Texas.

Agreed. It's not like the extra distance from SF to LA would matter if you're going that far out there.
I hate ND, and that's why I want them in the Big Ten. And yes, they're always overrated, but they'd still help prop up the West. Kick out Rutgers, send a fairly weak team east, and put ND in there. My vote would be for Minny to move east so we could play the jug game every year, but geographically and for competitive balance and for IU's rival, it should be Purdue.

I have no doubt OSU is good this year, and it's hard to see them losing more than a couple games before we go to Columbus, but I'm still in wait-and-see mode about almost any team. I remember how many seasons we had where we crush some MAC teams and beat an overrated ND and we're undefeated halfway through the season and think "This is the year!", only to be physically pushed around and beaten by MSU and find out we're meh.
Houston is good but not elite, and Oklahoma lost to them too. Look at that huge ND-Texas game. Now it looks like both teams simply aren't that good.
At least now I don't mind a young OSU team having time to get better by the end of the year because our D still needs to get used to Brown's defense and Speight could use a bit more experience as well.

How did Hoke's team unravel in his last year? Maybe we have different definitions. They simply weren't good, but I don't remember a bunch of shit like this at USC happening. The only thing that unraveled was our recruiting.

"Stopped" is an exaggeration though. There were still some secondary busts and a long TD bomb after the 1st. I'm not saying I'm that worried about the rest of the year. I think Colorado is legit, as long as their QB isn't seriously injured. But people are being way too optimistic if they don't have any concerns for the future. We just have to wait and see if they can get it cleaned up before it really bites them.

Yeah really. Sometimes the reporters do ask terrible questions, but Harbaugh gives guarded answers, so what are they supposed to do?
We got some good technical stuff out of Zordich and maybe some others I've forgotten, but I'm pretty sure I remember a few really good MGoQuestions being shot down by Harbaugh and Wheatley because they didn't want to answer anything about specific plays.

Honest question, what would you say are 2 of the biggest events in America's history since 1776? Sure, a lot of people who like history put too much emphasis on war, but it is a pretty big deal. Also, it works well when pinpointing an event, rather than a trend or shift, even if that trend or shift may be greatly important. I don't think you can underestimate how big the Civil War was. I mean, the country as we know it literally wouldn't exist if it had gone differently.
Having said that, I'd say Salvatore missed a really really big event after 1776, namely the signing of the Constitution? Hard to put anything over that. Or the whole rest of the revolution after 1776. Maybe Salvatore should have said after the revolution.

On another note, I guess it's fandom, but it's getting pretty annoying with people talking about how much they absolutely hate the opposing team and want to see Harbaugh crush them by overblowing small things and then posting a million tiny reasons why we should hate that team until it gets so old. It's exactly the kind of invented grievances that make Rutgers' fans hate us now.
And FWIW, I was at the Colorado Hail Mary game. I can't say I hate a team for beating us once 20 some years ago.

This is always the argument against the key shaking, and it's so dumb. Think about clapping at least. Is a clap louder than shaking keys? Seems so. But the actual sound happens for a very short period. Most of that time is just moving your hands back and forth. Keys are constant. Is that quieter than clapping? I honestly don't know. But if shaking keys is quieter, it can't be by much. Anyway, yelling is really what makes noise.
I shook keys in the early 2000's (AND screamed). If it's gone away, whatever. As one poster said above, it worked better in the 70's when everyone had a ton of keys. But the ridicule of shaking keys is dumb.

Are you sure? I don't think we went over this enough last year.
But, IIRC, you can still get a redshirt after playing a bit if you then stop playing because of a season-ending injury. So I think Harbaugh's plan is to get a few guys in there in garbage time for the first couple games and then break their legs.

Maybe that's the point. I can't wait for Harbaugh to kick ass on the field. Tired of the only ass kicking he gives coming from twitter.
