"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

The biggest dissapointment from saturday was the game plan. If we lost because they had 400 yards passing I deal with it. To have a high safety in that game was criminal and dissapointing. Durkin might be a good coach but that was a bad game plan, especially given the blueprint provided by msu the week before.
It invovled a lot of hubris, they decided they ran their style and it could beat anyone, they got outschemed and as a result embarrased.

Helton just punked Mora's team with a depleted roster, not sure why you get the impression that would turn around super quickly.

Ralph Friedgen won multiple ACC titles, went to a bcs bowl had a few 10 win teams, this was in the 2000's. Its a better job than Houston unless your goal is to win mostly by playing bad teams.

Not sure 1 year as a d coordinator is going to make him loyal to michigan in any real way.
|1 day 17 hours ago||Matt Campbell, a guy with a||
Matt Campbell, a guy with a good head coaching record is going to Iowa state, a worse job than MD. Lol at people thinking Durkin should hold off for a better job. Letting a dislike of maryland being in the big ten making you look stupid.
|1 day 17 hours ago||Why do people keep saying||
Why do people keep saying this? Coordinators without head coaching experience rarely get P5 jobs. Tom Hermann got Houston last year after being the top coordinator in the country. Maryland is a higher profile job than Houston. Jim Mcelwain went from top coordinator to colorado state before getting to Florida. It took Narduzzi three years of passing up job offers to get the Pitt job he left for which is probably a worse job than MD. This would be an amazing job to get for a coordinator with no track record and its really weird that nobody realizes this.
I'm more worried about recruiting impact than I am about playcalling issues next year if he leaves.

Maryland is a higher profile job than the houston job tom hermann left for last year, of course he would leave for that job.

Our 2 best wins are what, northwestern and penn state? We have 3 losses and maybe one good win and just got plastered at home.
|1 day 17 hours ago||Well they have one less loss||
Well they have one less loss and a top 10 win. So yeah. We are where we deserve to be. We haven't played well in a month to be honest and got whooped yesterday.

If this defense had raekwon McMillan in the middle it would be the top defense in college

Can he play lb? We aren't beating osu until our lbs don't suck.

It's pathetic that the d coaches just refuse to adjust. Like having a high safety means anything right now.

Our linebackers just aren't good enough, it's that simple.
|4 days 21 hours ago||He is d coordinator with no||
He is d coordinator with no head coaching experience. He isn't getting hired by Texas. Tom Hermann parylayed it to the Houston job, its huge for him MD is considering him. Narduzzi ran the top defense for like 3 years straight and held out for the best job he could get and that was Pitt which is probably a worse job than MD.

With our shit non conference schedule and the big ten looking like ass we aren't giving ourselves much room for error. At this point need a minimum of 10 bug ten wins and probably 11.

When you suck at d its tough to be good at basketball. Our ceiling this year is like Indiana football, high scoring chaos games but probably not a great record at the end.

You know you have issues when you downvote someone for telling the truth just because you don't like it
|5 days 19 hours ago||I mean it tells us that||
I mean it tells us that despite underperforming relative to expectations they are still probably a better team than us. Not that it matters all that much, jsut sort of shows is both teams play their best osu wins. I highly doubt both teams play a perfect game though so its all good.

A sparty no momemnt is what we did against them this year, losing a game you should win in spectacular fashion.
|6 days 15 hours ago||Lets be honest, there is a||
Lets be honest, there is a better chance of Cook finishing this game than Hackenberg. The PSU oline is going to be like blocking dummies to the msu dline. Psu should just have their offense be shotgun bombs. It worked ok for rutgers.
|1 week 18 hours ago||It isn't happening, the only||
It isn't happening, the only trump card we had was beating two top 5 teams back to back and even then it would be an iffy argument to get in over a 1 loss team. At this point utah has a shot at not finishing outside the top 25 and osul could drop pretty far with another loss.
It also involves msu losing next, if this week taught as anything is that trusting anyone else to do your work for you is going to end in dissapointment. Beat osu and see what happens, not worth worrying about what other teams do until msu losses. Especially since if msu wins I don't want them in the playoff so I would end up rooting for opposit outcomes.
|1 week 20 hours ago||I was mostly suprised by how||
I was mostly suprised by how easiy msu could run the ball in that game. The offense was complete shit but you can try to blame some of that on the weather taking away the deep passing game which is msu's biggest weakness. For a team to give up 200 yards rusing when the passing game is zero threat is just getting punched in the face and folding.

I'm legit worried about hacks health next week, so no.

The 1-3-1 is also a shit defense used by ubathletic teams that no they can't stop anyone straight up and hope to cause enough turnovers to off set all the easy shots they are giving up. When you are turning to it to try to get key defensive stops for an entire half you see what happened to Michigan this game. We need a better defensive coach on the roster.

Michigan has had shit basketball fans for a while, that wasn't really a new issue this game.
|1 week 3 days ago||Every team with a competent||
Every team with a competent center is a bad match up right now, that's a lot of teams. We haven't had a good defensive game yet this year. The team obviously has plenty of time to turn it around but blaming what happened tonight on a bad match up is sticking your head in the sand about this teams issues.
|1 week 3 days ago||Got punched in the face and||
Got punched in the face and folded. The team got outplayed, out worked, out desired, and Xavier was more athletic. Unless the team suddenly can play defense the ceiling on this team is way lower than we thought it was.

Yes it is possible to get faster in college put you pulled that stat from an article literally talking about how on a whole players in fact do not get faster during college and the ones that do are the exception. You proved my point better than I did, so thank!
|1 week 4 days ago||They do? I've heard||
They do? I've heard otherwise. Denard had a 40 time in high school of 4.39 and he ran a 4.32 at the combine and his personal best 100 meter time was a 10.44 in high school even though he ran track while at Michigan. Its hard to maintain the same speed when you start putting on the muscle a college S&C program gets you to deal with the added physicality.

He was under 50% for completions on the game, they hit some really big plays but unless you would say the michigan secondary was a sieve against msu this year than I would disagree with your chareterization.
