Is this the same ESPN that had Oklahoma, LSU, Stanford, Tennessee and Notre Dame in their preseason Top Ten power rankings?

2016 hasn't been good to them. But they're still going to show up and play hard. I'll be happy with a win; style points aren't necessary.

No. Really, no.

Wiscy's defense is for real, but OSU's offense is more real. Remember, we left points on the board with missed FGs against them.
OSU by 21.

I wish him the best. Young people need to decide what's best for themselves, even if that is somewhere other than UM.

Early playing time, but there's a serious risk of being dismembered.

This was truly wonderful. Thanks!
The best was the thing about poking the wolverine.

They also beat the greatest Green Bay Packers team in 1963.
These games weren't the worst NFL teams v college all stars, they were the NFL champions vs college all stars, and they happened every year until the mid 70s, so that's into the Super Bowl era.
If you look into it, the games were often pretty close, and every so often the college team won.
Now, no doubt the pro teams weren't taking it all that seriously in comparison to league games, but they do say something, and the college teams had never played or trained to gether before; they were like today's college all star games. Just a bunch of guys.
All that said, I think there'd be a lot of guys potentially hurt, and ended careers, and it's no wonder that NFL-bound players didn't want to risk their careers on such games.

And there's also a downside.

Then again, if Harbaugh says it's going to be treated like a championship game, it's a championship game.
I'm sure that's how Rutgers approached their game against mighty Howard.
But don't ask, "Howard who?" Because I don't know his last name.

I love this! Rutgers fans are feeling the hatred!
"Give in to your anger. With each passing moment you make yourself more my servant."

Well, here's an opinion that seems to agree with me:
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I don't know about you guys,||
I don't know about you guys, but one of my little brothers is stronger, healthier and bigger than I am, and could kick my ass any day of the week.
So I'm not sure this is an epithet worth bothering with.
Still, this is a year we have a better team, and we should win.

It's just a little bit of fun; this particular game needs a little hype to get non-UM people at all interested. Otherwise it's a sleeper.
Oh, and there's still that little matter of revenge for Rutgers' win in 2014.

Trap game? Consider the looming battle with our permanent historical rivals in Piscataway.
Fortunately no team today has a squad featuring the football gods that propelled Rutgers to their first ever Big Ten win. Against Michigan. Yes, that Michigan. Our Michigan.
Who can forget the immortal Kemoko Turay stealing victory from the jaws of defeat with his unforgettable field goal block?
I can't. I'm sure that it is not only the great Brady Hoke who has Scarlet Knightmares, knight after endless knight. For it was that game that broke Hoke; it was that game that made Hoke a joke.
Many of our current players were on that team. Many of their players were coming up under the Immortals who beat Michigan.
The blood has dried a little, but I say:
Who's with me?

Don Brown's defense is the giant meteor that will destroy MSU.
But like everyone else here, I will fret and worry anyway.

Hate to see a player go down with an inury. That's a shame if it's true.

He's a great coach, who loves his team. None better.

Cowherd's difficult job is to keep people engaged instead of changing the channel. So he's over the top and controversial? Big deal. Feuillitonism at its peak, Hermann Hesse might say.
Pare it down to the essential message: he says Michigan beats Wisconsin on Saturday by a wide margin.
I have no problem with that!

That would be the worst pro club fate for him that I can possibly imagine. The Lions are so fifth-rate.

It's a load of crap, but it's still a fun read.

Firing Ben Franklin would be downright un-American.

It all started in 1971 with Apollo 15, the mission to the moon manned by three Michigan alumni. As we all know, this moon landing was faked by Bo Schembechler and filmed in Crisler Arena, and its sole purpose was to prevent a Penn State alum from landing on the moon. A group of aliens known as "the Greys and Scarlets," who were actually OSU officials in disguise, conspired with UM on this, and as we all know, Schembechler had once been an OSU assistant coach.
Thereafter, OSU and Michigan conspired to have PSU admiited to the Big Ten only 19 years later, for the sole purpose of dismantling their program and taking over their pipeline to New Jersey. In the process, they slipped Jerry Sandsusky a psychedelic drug that destroyed his mind and made him attracted to little boys, to guarantee the eventual destruction of the sainted PSU football program.
Being the trusting souls that the noble PSU people were, they were misled by these nefarious powers and innocently joined the Big Ten, not realizing that it was out to get them. All they really wanted was to stay independent, or join the ACC.
The only way of righting this unrightable wrong, to love, pure and chaste from afar, is to strive with their last ounce of courage to reacah the unreachable star. This is their quest; to follow that star; no matter how hopeless, no matter how far.
To get out of Dodge,
to make a hodgepodge,
of conspiracy theories, is the best they can do;
to conquer their fears,
and hold back their tears, no matter the years.....
and grasp at the straws, screw the laws, and the world's righteous scorn!
This is Penn State
The victims of hate
Thus their pride is reboooooorrrrrnnnn!
|3 weeks 4 days ago||I realize that we as fans||
I realize that we as fans love to analyze prior opponents, and statistics, and strength of schedule, and ll the things that lead us to one conclusion or the other about what may happen in the next game. To a degree, I think we do it to calm our worries, or resign ourselves to an imagined fate.
And of course, the statistics do help us to evaluate trends, and set the odds. But there are enough chaotic elements in a football game for each one to be just a little different, and to some degree, luck plays a role.
Napoleon asked, "I know he's a good general, but is he lucky?" The same could be said of a coach or a football team. I think Harbaugh's a lucky coach, and Michigan's a lucky team to have him. And for me, that's an intangible that makes for good outcomes in games.

I wish him the very best. He's a terrific player, seems like a great guy.
