It will never happen, but I'd like to see the polls based more on team strength than win/loss record . . . team #1 is the team that would be expected to beat all the other teams, team #2 is the team that would be expected to beat all the other teams except team #1, etc.
If team #2 plays team #1 on the road and loses by a field goal, then that says to me that yes indeed, team #2 is the second best team.
But the current polls will often drop that team below every team with one less loss, often out of the top ten.
The current polls still count number of losses too heavily, and therefore still reward an easy schedule too much.

There are a lot of Penn State people that want to excommunicate Joe Paterno as the face of Penn State. But they are not running the show, especially in the Athletic Dept.
I make no apologies for them, I'm just explaining it. They are in charge and are making unethical and incredibly tone deaf decisions.
So they get what they deserve.
To your point, if they keep propping up Paterno as the face of the university, it will not be a "world class university", it will just be a sick joke.
It's their decision.

As someone who grew up in PA, had both my brothers go to Penn State, and followed Penn State and Joe Paterno since the '70s, I'm very dissapointed with how the PSU administration is handling this.
That tribute last week was the most tone deaf thing ever. Things were perhaps starting to settle down and BOOM, the PSU administration inflamed it all over again. On purpose.
Paterno betrayed Penn State. Penn State owes him nothing. This episode is a black stain on Penn State's history.
You (and I) would like Penn State to attone for past sins, turn a clean page, and move on to a beter future. But its very own administration won't let it.
Penn State is a large, diverse, world class university that is defined by more than just one person. Joe Paterno does not get to define Penn State to the world . . . unless they keep insisting he does.

If your plan is to aggressively blitz JT Barrett while your safety's are alone to cover Samuel and Noah Brown, you are going to have "Across the Field" ringing in your ears all day Sunday.

Yeah, some of these bland ambiguous questions are the coaches' fault. If you ask a specific incisive question you get shut down. So you learn to just say "Talk about XXX", and the coach will say whatever he feels like saying.
Direct questions about actual football don't always work well with Harbaugh's many moods, but if you say "Talk about player XXX", you'll usually get something.
It's a waste of everybody's time, but hey, they're all getting paid to do it and we fans get a little morsel of info here and there every once in a while, so everybody's happy.

I really want this record back.
Way back when, when we had the all-time # of wins record, but not the all-time win % record, Notre Dame fans would say (correctly) that our record was simply because we played more games than them.
What counted more, they said, was how you did in the games you played . . . i.e. winning %. You beat more of the teams you played across time than anyone else.
Like it or not, it was hard to argue with that. It was a "tempo-free" metric.
When we take both the all-time # of wins record and the all-time winning % record, there will be nothing to argue with. Michigan is the winningest program in history. Period.

|1 week 2 days ago||What I like here is that||
What I like here is that Peppers times it perfectly.
Peppers does not wait until the ball is snapped, nor does he blindly just anticipate the snap. He waits until the QB points to the ground - the signal to the Center that he can hike the ball at will - and then he starts to come.
The QB sees this, but it's too late . . . the play is already underway and can not be changed.
The Center snaps the ball as he's been instructed to do, but by that time Peppers has built up a head of steam and ID'd the gap he will shoot through.
This play was DOA. At best, the QB could have quickly thrown the ball away in a panic. At best.

For that game it actually was. Being from PA, I can tell you that Penn State can wake up latent Pitt fans like nothing else.

That's the key . . . get ahead and don't let them hang around. They can hit some quick scores out of nowhere.

That's too bad. I hope they get fully healthy ... just in time for their game with Oho State.

That's true. Woodson's TD return against Ohio State (and our win) sealed the deal for him in NYC. Without it he still goes to NYC, but he does not win it.

If they kick away from him, we'll retain that field position advantage . . . automatically.

Or Barrett. Definitely Barrett.

It's all about the endzone.
TDs on offense, TDs on defense, TDs on special teams.

We are causing some of those errors.
That punt into the back of your own teammate was a direct result of the punter have the yips from our pressure and block his previous punt.
Dude was a nervous cat out there all day.

No he's not overrated. But he's not indespensible either.
There can be more than one person that is good at a coaching position.

Penn State's passing looks better that I would have thought, and their running worse than I would have thought . . .

Nobody says we're not making progress, but we're greedy . . . we want National Championship stats.
|1 week 3 days ago||Yikes. If we can't figure||
Yikes. If we can't figure out how to run the ball effectively against Ohio State, we're going to get steamrolled again. There's no UCF formula that's going to work in that game.

You mad at him?

The bigger issue for taking the job, more than even the Paterno shadow, is having to compete right away in the Big Ten East.
The PSU fanbase has Notre Dame-esque delusions of grandeur. They're still stuck in 1986.
They expect to be playing in National Championhip games after going undefeated in a MAC-like schedule. They have not adapted to having to win your way in through a gauntlet of Michigan/OSU/MSU, the B1G CG, and the CFP.
The right coach, given lots of time, can make it work. But they won't give him the time.
The guy who has it made is the next PSU coach after the one that follows Franklin gets fired. The Paterno stuff will have died down (and many of his irrational supporters died off), and he will be able to recruit the talent-rich areas of PA / NJ / DC.

I sense that Tom Brady was a good guy even before he came to Michigan.
|1 week 3 days ago||It's great that he came here,||
It's great that he came here, but let's not kid ourselves . . . he came here on a business trip. We needed to bring something to the table for him to be here. He didn't do it just to make us feel good about ourselves.
He was never going to do it for Iowa.
So be it. That's how the world works. I'm just glad we're in a position to be able to merit his attention.

More pressure, higher level of competition. Growing pains.
This is still only his 3rd start, and the competition has ramped up significantly.

Oh to be able to say that about Ohio State in a couple of months.

JK. Everybody but us and MSU now runs some form of spread in the Big Ten East.
Time to get used to it.

Whoo Hoo!! Stop all the games and hand us the Golden Vag right now.
|1 week 3 days ago||Everybody struggles against||
Everybody struggles against it. Even the vaunted Alabama defense gave up 40+ points.
It's a very effective offense. Teams are not consistently winning games 14-7 any more. You have to assume that you need to score at least in the 30's to win.
It makes college football entertaining as hell, IMO. I can't watch the Pros for more than 10 minutes anymore. Too tedious.
You have to keep pace scoring-wise when you play a spread team. You can't just keep punting and playing field position, ala Woody and Bo. You'll be down 3 TDs in 5 minutes before you know what happened.

Nothing like a good Purdue - Bowling Green matchup to get some filing done and some door hinges fixed.

Rich Rod's first Michigan teams say "Hi".
