MSU-WI seems a poor comparison. It was weeks ago and MSU's personnel has changed greatly since then -- for good reason. UM is also a better running team now than WI was then -- by a good bit. UM is better across the OL and much deeper at RB.

Carhartt: Michigan company and works with UM AD. Sponsored Signing of the Stars. Great clothes. Also lots of local philanthropy.

I agree that the UM game is a good barometer on paper. If talent and speed and coaching decide this game it'll be what you say. At some point, youth and inexperience will be a problem for the Buckeyes. This will be the first time they're really gonna be punched in the face. OK was never able to create much adversity. WI will need a couple breaks and/or youthful mistakes. If that happens I'll be interested to see the bucknuts react. Norman was impressive, but the rest of the schedule has been really weak. The next month will be a test.

WI isn't as good as people think. Dantonio folded that game. West division loss means less. Now they can lay in the weeds, nurture their shoulder chips, and ambush UM Oct. 29. He might just blow another game prior to that game just for good measure. Genius.

Do or do not. There is no try.

Ah yes. The ol' 27 for 27 strategy. Classic.

His ability to block will have a lot to say about that.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Seconded.||

Yes. Well said. Rooting hard for ND to do poorly. Rooting harder for Sparty to do worse. Hoping for an ugly no-one-deserves-to-win game. Sparty loss means more to postseason unless we're battling a 1-loss ND for CFP which seems highly unlikely (I think ND loses another).

All good points. Brown and Harbaugh also have played vanilla, vanilla, vanilla. The D will look much differently in November.

"Even with all that the grades here are shockingly high; I'll be interested to see how my charting comes out."
Yes, perhaps the UFR could come a little early to reconcile the shock once and for all. Please and thank you.

I feel the same. With Harbaugh, future class recruiting news is kinda like off-season weight changes. Its fine until proven otherwise.

Not to worry yet. Me thinks the OP is way out over his skis in just the 2nd week.

Bronco said UM was the best team they'd play thus far. They had played @NE, #20BSU, and @#10UCLA. (September rankings are often dumb)

Bronco spoke the truth. So did Rolo.

WI schedule is brutal. Even if they're the best team in the West, their schedule makes winning the division tough.

I don't think the argument, "if you take away 2 teams and 7 titles, then they only have two other teams winning two more" makes the point you want it to.

Exactly half after Ole Miss. TN and AR barely escaped as well.

You know nothing JonSnow...that was Brian. Unless you knew that which really ruins my tag line.

Now you're just channeling NORAD's WOPR.

I'm just wondering why they wouldn't get the job done. Both have gotten the job done in the past, but probably Clark has had more game success. If Strib has passed him, then there's nothing to worry about there. True frosh as a 4th CB rather than a 2nd is a good thing...and I think Long is on his way to being damn good.

It depends on what the meaning of the word is, is.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Too late. Gene Wojciechowski||
Too late. Gene Wojciechowski only mentioned Meyer. Yes, JH brought up Dantonio, but he was second in the interview and an impromptu add-on by JH. DISRESPEKT!!!
|8 weeks 6 days ago||You're right that neither||
You're right that neither option is "seasoned." Still, Newsome has more seasoning than Bredeson. Cole as a Soph had much more seasoning than Newsome. UM is an NC-caliber team with an LT who will have to survive against opponents NC-caliber DLs.
|9 weeks 16 hours ago||College ready freshmen LTs||
College ready freshmen LTs are usually, at best, "meh" (see Mason Cole). Brian said Bredeson could well be better than Cole. For an NC run I think we'd all be happier with a seasoned LT. Meh or a little better isn't what I'm hoping for.
|9 weeks 16 hours ago||I totally agree this is||
I totally agree this is largely academic because, Harbaugh. Have the coaches mentioned confidence, mental toughness and leadership one way or another? I'm not under the impression O'Korn has the edge in any of these -- nor Speight. I liked Speight pulling it together in crunch time in MN after looking lost. Mental toughness, leadership, confidence -- check, check, check. Freshman O'Korn -- check, check, check. Soph O'Korn? Not sure.
It sounds like Harbaugh liked both their summer leadership and competitiveness. My personal inference is that a part of "consistency" is good decision making, not getting rattled, etc.. I've heard Brian say that Soph O'Korn made some bizarre decisions. Again, I infer some possible mental breakdowns as lack of toughness (normal for a Soph).
But as you say...Harbaugh. So it'll be fine.

What are the intangibles in O'Korn's favor? Not saying there may not be, but I think I've also heard evaluations of some intangibles not in his favor.
