I don't understand how 538s model can give the current 5th place team a 1% chance of making the playoffs, especially on a playoff system that's only been in existance for 2 years and is not deterministic. Seems like their model is making some pretty questionable assumptions.
Not saying Michigan has a great chance, but Brian's 10% is a good deal closer than 538's number.

A MAC school would need to schedule at least 2 games against quality power 5 schools to warrant consideration for a playoff berth.
With that said, I think they've earned a berth in one of the BCS bowls (or whatever they're calling them).

The buzzer goes of before he even catches the ball. I don't know how they don't replay that. What if he made it, but the defender started prematurely celebrating? They would've let it count? That's a load of BS. FGCU got screwed.

I agree completely. OSU has struggled to stop the run. We should run it straight at them and keep the ball away from their elite secondary.

Well, Speight has borderline elite pocket presence, so maybe not the fairest comparison. But I still think JOK's pocket presence was awful yesterday.

His pocket presence was terrible. Speight does a much better job of evading the rush and getting the ball out earlier. JOK was a disaster in that regard. Not sure you can blame the weather on that.

I'm thinking 6 seed right now. They have little to no NBA talent (maybe Wilson), but this is Beilein's first truly veteran team at Michigan. They could be like all those veteran Wisconsin teams that contend for a Big Ten title and grab a 2 or 3 seed - albeit while playing a different brand of basketball. I guess well see.

Marquette doesn't know how to play defense without fouling. Also fouled a ton in their first game.

I wonder how much the gold plating of these facilities improves the actual performance of our athletes.
I do recognize the necessity to keep up with the Jones' for recruiting purposes.

Not sure I'd expect much friendly interaction from former college teammates in the middle of a game.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Probably a little soft on||
Probably a little soft on Duncan - his defense should keep him off the court unless he can start making 40+% of his 3's again. Otherwise, a spot on analysis.

I think the offense has tons of talent, but is playing behind an o-line that's "only" pretty good.

They called Michigan too early for the side that now has a 35% chance of winning Michigan (per NYT).

Why do Oregon LBs play 8 yds off the LOS?
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Somebody forgot to tell OSU||
Somebody forgot to tell OSU that this is a big game. They're playing with zero energy, and are lucky they're not down by 20 pts. Wisconsin's very mediocre offense is putting up 8 yds/play!?!?
|8 weeks 1 day ago||I don't blame Nebraska for wanting to go back to||
I don't blame Nebraska for wanting to go back to the big 12. All their history is back in the Big 12. They hardly get to play the most prestigious Big Ten programs. Their problem is, if Oklahoma's no longer there, then what's the point?
I just wish we went back to the pre-PSU Big Ten. MD & RU in the big 10 is a joke. No big ten fan cares about those programs. So much of conference realignment has been totally misguided and short sighted.
Texas seems to be on a mission to destroy their program by forming a 3rd rate conference.
The ACC should shed their Northeastern schools, who should form a new conference with PSU. Let's call it the big east.
The PAC 12 actually makes some sense, though CU is a bit of an oddball.
SEC is OK, but a 14 team league is basically 2 conferences.
Not sure if the damage that JIM DELANY started will ever be undone.

About what I'd expect from the genius's that awarded Russia & Qatar the next 2 world cups.

I suppose they've shown enough to have a chance against Michigan, but that's about it.

On replay, I thought both QBs did what they could with constant pressure. Hornibrook had the additional handicap of playing with horrible WRs. He actually did a nice job of stepping into the pocket on his 2nd int, only to have Glasgow literally throw their center into him, which caused the interception.
I actually thought our run blocking was pretty good. Pass blocking.. not so much.

...unless there's a very limited supply on Friday, which was looking like a possibility a week ago. But usually you do pay a premium by buying ahead of time.

Wisconsin's pretty good, especially defensively. MSU needs QB. Maybe they have a Hornibrook on their roster, but considering they stuck with O'Connor, I'm guessing their backups are atrocious.

When the Michigan crowd sounded surprised that they confirmed the targeting call, you know they f'd up the call pretty good.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||8 of their 11 opponents||
8 of their 11 opponent's turnovers were ints. They are not getting a bunch of random fumbles. They are getting pressure and have 2 potential 1st rounders at cornerback.

Lattimore had a really nice pick against Okl. I think he's the real deal, unfortunately.

I have a hard time seeing us not destroy them, but I guess we'll see.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||I thought the o-line played||
I thought the o-line played very well, but Speight made a lot of questionable throws to well covered receivers. Colorado's secondary looked really good.
This was Speight's first game against a functional, possibly excellent, secondary. Let's give him a break and see how he plays against PSU.

These are two really bad teams. No way Baylor finishes the season in the to 25.

I would not count on UW tickets significantly dropping unless there's bad weather. Supply could tighten up fast, especially if they beat MSU. I would buy now.

Antonio Kinard would be a 7th year senior if he would've stayed at Michigan. We could use that kind of experience at LB.
