"No one cares what your father once said." Boom. Shut down.
|4 days 1 hour ago||LSU||
I think his point is that LSU leads (or is in good position) for 6 consensus five stars right now (listed by 247 Composite rank--247 Crystal Ball in parentheses)
1. Leonard Fournette (90%)
3. Cameron Robinson (50%)
10. Tony Brown (100%)
16. Laurence Jones (100%)
32. Gerald Willis (100%)
35. Clifton Garrett (100%)
37. Malachi Dupre (100%) (second highest four-star)
If LSU lands that much talent as expected, they are going to be extremely difficult to pass. Although we are leading now, LSU will almost certainly pass us (same with Alabama).

Do you know if they have plans to reinstate the baseball program? It seems like Wisconsin's athletic department has been doing well recently.
|4 days 14 hours ago||Wisconsin.||
Wisconsin doesn't have a baseball team? Weird.

I did not care for The Godfather. It insists upon itself.

As far as Michigan's home slate being awful in 2014, I have a potential solution. Brandon could cancel the Notre Dame game (which is away) and schedule a home-and-home with either LSU or Texas A&M. They have no big names on their 2014 OOC schedules, and we desperately need a good home game to reward our season ticket holders. Sounds like a win-win to me. We could then return to either of them in 2017, which would work out with everyone's schedules. Other less exciting teams we might be able to bring in are Texas Tech, Mississippi State, and Vanderbilt.
Notes: We have never played LSU(!) and we've only played A&M three times--the last was a loss in the 1995 Alamo Bowl. The LSU game would also have the Les Miles storyline.

If so, he's going to Kansas. Uh-oh.
|6 days 2 hours ago||Thanks for the Kudos.||
Are you sending them by mail? M&M or bust.
|6 days 21 hours ago||Furbush.||
We are looking at Noah Furbush (an Ohio kid) and more recently we've shown growing interest in Jimmie Swain out of Missouri.
|1 week 1 day ago||Looks like.||
It looks like the coaches decided they don't really need another MIKE (especially an undersized MIKE like Watson), so they decided to cool on him and start recruiting others (like Winovich and Furbush) harder.
|1 week 1 day ago||Watson.||
From what I've heard on the Scout boards (via Sam Webb), it's looking like things have taken a big turn with Watson. Webb said he would be surprised to see him in this class now. Let's hope that things work out with Chase!

If it were the twosie, he would have. Why, Taylor, why?!
|1 week 1 day ago||Slow.||
Yes, it was a slow episode. However, it was also a great episode. The writing, acting, directing, and cinematography were fantastic. The production value has been noticeably better this season.
There were also some great scenes: Tywin and Joffrey's discussion in the throne room, the continued torture of Theon except with a twist, the negotiations between Daenerys and the Yunkai'i, etc. In fact, I can't think of one bad scene in this episode (except for maybe Orell hitting on Ygritte).

Hoke, Hoke, Hoke, Hoke, Hoke, Hoke, Hoke. It's all your fault, it's all your fault, it's all your fault, it's all your fault.
|1 week 5 days ago||Notre Dame.||
This makes me think that the Notre Dame series is done indefinitely. We are supposed to start playing them again in 2020, but this announcement makes me think there will be an even longer delay. Otherwise we are going to have a very challenging schedule playing 9 Big Ten games, Virginia Tech, and Notre Dame. Although, the new playoff format will supposedly emphasize strength of schedule, so maybe Brandon wants to go this route.

Here are all of the matchups. (And here is more information.)

|1 week 6 days ago||Whoa.||
At first I thought this was for the EDSBS charity thing, and I was like, "Wow, Ross must really want to win this damn thing!" Now I am going to go bask in my stupidity.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I think||
Texas A&M has had a super successful year, they are on a huge upswing, and they recenlty bailed the Big XII. In the meantime, Texas has had a few down years. Texas is probably mad due to all of A&M's recent success under the current circumstances, not just the plans to build a bigger stadium.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Not true.||
That doesn't make any sense at all. You could be second, third, fourth...hell, you could even be fifth!

It's SIAP and it means "Sorry If Already Posted."

|3 weeks 1 day ago||Purdue wins.||
Purdue is in the easier division and has a protected game with Indiana. They will have the easiest schedule in the Big Ten most years.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I do.||
No need to buckle up. The article just brings us up to date on Bushell-Beatty and Peppers. Bushell-Beatty will likely decide in the next two months--Michigan is the leader, but he is also considering Wisconsin and Florida. Peppers, as we already deduced a few days ago, is going to take a visit to Stanford this summer before he makes a decision.

Goodbye, Sparty. I hope you enjoyed your two good seasons.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Guess.||
If I had to guess, I would say that we will get Rutgers on the road in 2014 and at home in 2015. Our main competition for the division title will be Ohio State, Michigan State, Penn State, and Rutgers. This year (an odd year) we play Ohio State at home and Michigan State and Penn State on the road. To balance it out, we should play Rutgers at home in odd years.
Moreover, I think this means we will play Maryland on the road so that we travel to the east coast once per year. So my guess is the schedule (division opponents only) will look like this:
2014 - Michigan State, Penn State, Maryland, @Indiana, @Rutgers, @Ohio State
2015 - The opposite.

THIS SUMMER, ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER IS...LITTLE TORTILLA BOY!
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Better.||
Michigan and Ohio State are going to be much better than Nebraska and Wisconsin, at least if we project based on recruiting and coaching. Michigan State would actually be able to compete with Nebraska and Wisconsin every year while they would certainly struggle to compete in the much stronger East division.

I'm sure Ace will tell us tomorrow in his Hello post.
