Can we just do a ctrl-Z on the latest changes to the Big Ten?

And discrete math is possibly the boringest course at UM. So you have that to look forward to.

Kieras rocks. I was an idiot and slept through my 280 final and he let me take it with the afternoon session. That might have been my only straight A in CS. Is he still teaching 280? He was old in 1998.

Just take it. If you go CS, you'll be in a better position to get an internship after your sophomore year, especially if you take the algorithms class in the fall.

Unfortunately, his boss is probably patting him on the back for successfully trolling the Michigan fanbase.
I liked the paragraph he threw in there about how the Michigan fanbase is "dismayed" by Ohio States success. Uh, no. We're dismayed that our program has been horseshit for the last 7 years. OSU being successful is the norm.

"Why Coaching in the NFL is Preferable to College" is a more accurate title for that article. And it's pretty clear he threw that garbage together in about 5 minutes. Well done Forbes!

The UM side has incentive to leak to let their fans know that they're taking a serious run at Harbaugh. Or it's been run by so many people at UM that leaking was inevitable.

The honeymoon would be over with a 7 win or less season next year. Unlike the situation RR inherited, the roster is decent, and we'll be paying him a zillion dollars. He will take a TON of heat if next season is not at least moderately successful.

Chryst and Bevell (Seahawks OC, former UW QB) seem to be the popular candidates among Wisconsin faithful. Both would be good for fits for them...at least as far as I can tell.

Donnal's problem is his weak lower body strength. Unless he gets stronger, he'll always be "soft".
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Doyle vs Horford 2014||
Doyle vs Horford 2014 comparison:
Horford would clearly add some much needed depth and probably start, but he's not a difference maker. He's a poor offensive rebounder (9.5% vs 18.1% for Doyle), and turns the ball over a little more and is less efficient despite being a low usage player -- actually lower than Doyle (16.4% usage vs 21.1%).
Obviously, you have to take into account differences in systems, but looking at the stats, it doesn't look like Horford's made a huge leap by switching teams. His point and rebound totals are both up mostly because he's playing more minutes.

Tim and Nik were POYs. THJr is pretty darn close to an elite athlete - very effective in transition in the NBA. Caris and Irvin are very good, but not elite athletes. Like Nik and Trey, they need to be extremely productive this season to be 1st rounders.

Neither strike me as NBA 1st rounders YET. They're not elite athletes, so they'll need BT POY caliber seasons to move them into the 1st. We'll see at the end of the year.

...and big ten doormat IU beat SEC east champ Mizzou, so big ten uber alles...the KC Chiefs blew out the Patriots, so the Pats have no shot at the super bowl. Arguing about sports resumes is pointless.

So 14 points = 3 scores now? The game was tied in the 4th qtr and VT scored their last TD with less than a minute left. And the aforementioned Baylor team just eked out a victory against awful Texas Tech.
Not arguing that any Big Ten team should be in the 4 man playoff this year, just that I'd like to see one of them play in the darn thing. Usually the top team is good enough to make some noise, and allowing each Power 5 champ a spot gives the conference championships some real meaning.

MSU didn't get blown out by Oregon, and lets not pretend that the OSU excuses aren't legit.
My point being, I have confidence those teams would handle themselves about as well as any school not named Alabama. They could get beaten handily, but a lot of the other top teams could too.
|4 weeks 12 hours ago||I'm not going to argue that||
I'm not going to argue that the B1G is a great conference, but OSU, UW and MSU can go toe to toe with anyone in the nation this year. They should go to an 8 or 16 team playoff and get representation from all the major conferences. The 4 game non-conference schedule tells us little about the relative strengths of each conference. For example, SEC schools rarely play outside of the south. LSU playing in Green Bay will be the first time a big time SEC school has played in the midwest in forever.
Top to bottom, the SEC is still clearly the best, but the gap is not as big as some people would believe, especially this year.

What an improvement on the boards against a good rebounding team. Not sure how they went from a 40+% free throw rate team to a 9% one. Hmmm...

Too many possessions end with a reckless LeVert or Walton drive to the hoop. Those are fine with 10 seconds left on the shot clock, but usually they still have time to run a play and get an open look for a teammate. It's starting to feel like a Manny Harris era Michigan offense.

Wilson's still figuring things out. He's a liability right now, but once he gets it, he'll be a good one.

So far, Doyle doesn't make as many boneheaded plays as McGary did when he was a freshman. But, yeah, McGary was a freak and could do things few other centers could. Different players.
