|4 hours 48 min ago||It didn't say that||
It said that Stanford has higher admission standards, much less historical success, and a lesser fan base than ND, and yet is having much more success. I'd say they were pretty honest with that appraisal (and since they still play each other every year, it was a natural school to compare to.)
|1 day 19 hours ago||I remember how excited he was to come to Michigan||
And I remember how excited I was for him to lead us to greatness.
Sad it didn't work out, but I'm glad he got his degree and I hope he finds success elsewhere. And I will always be mad that he was allowed to play while obviously concussed. That's one of my least favorite Michigan memories of all time.
|2 days 52 min ago||Fumble vs. OSU||
Considering we got the ball back very quickly, deep in OSU territory due to the fake punt aftempt, and then promptly scored, I don't think that fumble mattered much. If we had scored, the resultant OSU drive probably plays out a bit differently starting at the 25 instead of the 2, and even if it did play out the same, we'd have gotten the ball back near midfield instead of just outside the red zone.

When he looks at that list, I wanted to help him feel better.

When can you be?
|2 days 6 hours ago||Your eyes do not deceive you||
But Michigan is the favorite for #6 overall Isaiah Wilson and #13 Donovan Peoples-Jones, and has a real chance at #1 overall Najee Harris. We also are likely the leader for #26 Jordan Anthony and #30 Aubrey Solomon. #19 Alex Leatherwood is also a real possibility. So that's 4-6 players we could add who are ahead of McCaffrey (who, we should note, was Quarterback Development God Harbaugh's first choice for the class.) While OSU will beat us for 5-stars this year, the sky could look a lot brighter in a few weeks, so I recommend next star-gazing in January.
|4 days 22 hours ago||Just root for Va Tech||
If Clemson loses, I think we're in. The committee likes looking at head-to-head matchups, and we've clearly got that advantage over both Wisconsin and Penn State. And I don't think a 2-loss Clemson team has a better resume than us.
|5 days 20 hours ago||Did you miss the Indiana game?||
The conditions were terrible for throwing, with strong, swirling winds, cold rain, and eventually snow. I'm not saying O'Korn couldn't have been better, but that is not the type of game that should be solely used to judge a quarterback.
|1 week 1 day ago||I agree||
On the plus side, it would likely mean the Rose Bowl, which is nice. On the minus side, I hate playing the LA teams at the Rose Bowl, and USC is playing like a top 5 team at this point.
|1 week 1 day ago||Go Colorado Go!||
That win could be the only good thing to come from Dave Brandon, lol!
|1 week 3 days ago||I'd be surprised myself||
But it's certainly not out of the question. I'd be shocked if we're lower than 6th this week, and probably 5th. The committee hasn't liked Washington all year (and rightfully so with their non-conference schedule), so even 4th wouldn't be surprising.
Certainly if Colorado beats Washington next week, that helps a ton, because it removes them from the equation, and means we'd have beaten two 11-2 conference champs (with the other being the winner of the B1G championship.) Will one of those teams leapfrog us, even though we've beaten them all, have better wins, and the same record as of this week? It's possible, obviously, but it depends if they're wedded more to conference champs, or overall performance, strength of schedule, and head-to-head results. They've tried to indicate the latter in general.
Now, I do think Washington will beat Colorado, because strength of schedule not withstanding, the eye test supports Washington being the better team. But if Colorado wins, it could be all that we need.
|1 week 3 days ago||No||
I'm quite sure OSU would have dragged down every receiver and gotten away with it. It happened three plays later at any rate.
|1 week 3 days ago||They use their toilet paper||
As evidenced by TAMU's early ranking.
That said, root for Penn State and Colorado next weekend.
|1 week 5 days ago||Depends on the contract||
If the buyout isn't steep, they can always make a move the next time a better opportunity comes along. This year's list desirable coaches for big-time programs seemed to start and end with Tom Herman, so if they missed out on that, keeping around someone who's done all right isn't a bad move.
|2 weeks 23 hours ago||I bet another team was about to sign him||
Bears are already down two QB's for the season, and Colts only carry two, but are without Luck.
Glad he's on a roster, and I hope he's able to seize the backup job next year.
EDIT: Posters above indicate my guess was correct.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Summit league is not mid-major||
Mid-majors are conferences like Missouri Valley, A-10, even the WCC at this point, in which it would surprise no one in most years if the league got one or more at-large bids. If the Summit League gets two bids, it's only because a 28+-win conference champ loses in the finals of the conference tournament, and even then that team needs to have beaten a few power conference teams at the beginning of the year.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||That's an outdated number||
It's up to 74% now.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Fire Beilein!||
Where is the poster who always demands this? Missing, I see.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I still think the Colts need to take the best OL on the board||
Andrew Luck is the key to that team. They've invested a ton in him, and that they can't keep him off his back, despite him being relatively mobile and having a quick release, is the number one problem with that team. Defense is also an obvious issue, but they need to get that offensive line figured out before they're paying a broken QB $20+ million.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||41-10||
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I doubt they'd have won more with Simmons||
Maybe they'd be 3-9, and even that's a stretch.
I like Simmons a ton as a player, but if he were worth even 1 more win every 12 games, he'd be an All-NBA caliber player as a rookie coming off a one-and-done. The team just isnt good. Six lottery picks in four years and they're still the worst team in the NBA.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Defamation?||
They didn't even name the players. Is the entire football program going to sue?
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I disagree regarding the B1G||
I'm not convinced the committee would put Wisconsin ahead of us if it's a close game. We'd have split on the year and have a host of better wins. Certainly OSU wouldn't be ahead of us. Clemson and Washington likely would, but would Louisville get to jump the #2 team by not playing, and their best win on the year vs. a Florida St. team that's ranked lower than four of our wins? I personally don't think so. And that's assuming everyone in the top 8 wins out, except for OSU losing to us -- which is a pretty big assumption given this past weekend..
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Nice to see us at 3||
I'd argue that we probably only have to win the next two weeks to make the CFP if Colorado gets past its next two opponents. That'd cement them in the top 10 as well.
Beating OSU would give us 4 wins against the top 10 and the clear number 2 position heading the B1G championship game. It'd be difficult to move 3 teams ahead of us after a loss unless Wisconsin blew us out.

|4 weeks 1 day ago||I know I'm excited for Sep 1st||
The Jilted by Gary Andersen Bowl could become a new rivalry!
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Man Miss St. has given up some huge plays in the 4th quarter||
Reminds you why they're 3-5.
|5 weeks 21 hours ago||It bothered me too||
Simple solution: Accepted defensive penalties in the final 30 seconds of the half reset the clock to the time when the snap occurred during the prior play.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Is that what it was?||
I saw during the game that something was thrown. Oh Bills fans, how East Lansing of you!
|5 weeks 4 days ago||MSU needs to win out to be bowl eligible||
Assuming they don't lose before then, they will absolutely play to win.
