31-28 Michigan... defensive slugfests never seem to go as scripted.

Call it the paranoia of the last decade of Michigan football, but I get a sneaking suspicion that the reason State hasn't looked good these past few weeks is because they're spending all their time gameplanning for Michigan and ignoring the "lesser" opponents on their schedule. I like M's chances on Oct 17th, but it's not going to be an easy win...

also, 24-10. M struggles to finish their first drive, settles for a field goal, then scores a couple touchdowns to lead 17-3 at half. They play conservatively in the 2nd half, but add another touchdown for a comfortable lead. Maryland gets their first and only touchdown in garbage time.

bad example... this pass was thrown slightly behind, but was probably intentional, given the coverage. if it's thrown in front, it's likely picked off or deflected.

I seem to remember RR's Michigan teams dominating the September stats as well... doesn't mean much yet.

To be clear, I think a 11-1 and maybe even a 10-2 Michigan gets into the playoff (even over undefeated teams) with wins over OSU and MSU, which is why they would need to lose 2 more in my scenario.

Normally, I'd like to see our conference do well in the playoffs, because I think it'll be nice to dominate the B1G when it's considered the top conference. However, I'm ok with your prediction of no B1G teams in the playoff, given the following scenario:
UM loses a close one to BYU, and drops another to NW before going undefeated in remaining conference play. They get revenge against NW in the conference championship game, but are kept out of the playoff due to their 9-3 record. They then go on to demolish a 9-3 Notre Dame in the 2016 Rose Bowl.

It's not about whether they play differently after a loss, but how the public perceives them. M beating a ranked team means something to the college football world. BYU losing their ranking right before we play them absolutely has a negative effect on our game next weekend, win or lose.

That's a nice bonus, and great for the guys on the team, but I'd rather just have an exceptional college team. I'll take both, but college success trumps NFL success in my book.

The issue isn't that the boat doesn't run, but that the title was salvaged which, for cars at least (don't know about boats), legally needs to be disclosed... even in an "as is" sale. It would be like selling a house "as is," but not disclosing a known mold problem... also illegal.

I'm sorry, but if we go 7-6, JH hasn't done a "very good job," he's done an ok job... and even that's being generous!

Are you high?!? Here's a direct quote from Hoke in the OP'S linked article:
"We won the Sugar Bowl (in 2011 and went 11-2) and had 15 fifth year seniors so we had guys who played a lot of football and we had Denard Robinson, maybe one of the most dynamic quarterbacks to play at the University of Michigan when you look statistically."

I would argue that he had the September Heisman wrapped up after the Notre Dame Game in 2013... heaps of praise on his poise in the pocket and improved passing skills during that game

Technically, there is a countdown to kickoff on their Facebook page (link). It's not as cool as the videos from the past, but still fun to see who's chosen each day :-)
|8 weeks 1 day ago||So what? Overall records||
So what? Overall records don't tell the whole story. Harbaugh was barely above .500 at Stanford and he's respected. In face, Hoke had a better record at UM than Harbaugh had at Stanford (.607 vs .580) over almost the same amount of games (51 games for Hoke vs 50 games for Harbaugh). Of course, they were trending in opposite directions, but that just proves my point about overall records used as a metric for comparing coaches. Hoke has a solid record of improving programs at the MAC level. He'll coach again, and he'll do just fine.
