The real question is if we win out and win the B1G tourney do we get a 1 seed? I think it would be hard to not give the team that won the reg season and tournament championship of the best conference in the country a 1 seed. This is of course assuming state loses to ohio.
|3 years 36 weeks ago||You make a good point but I||
You make a good point but I don't know if there are enough spots. There's 4 at large spots and unless something crazy happens the SEC and Big 12 are assured two of the 4. Then you have Houston automatically getting a spot. So it would probably boil down to a 10-2 Michigan or an 11-1 Stanford for the final at large spot.

Whoever voted Boise #1 in the AP poll should lose their ability to vote.
|3 years 43 weeks ago||Beckett pitched yesterday and||
Beckett pitched yesterday and Lester is pitching tomorrow so if we play the BoSox it would look something like this
JV vs Wakefield/Lackey
Fister vs Beckett
Scherzer vs Wakefield/Lackey
Porcello vs Lester
JV vs Wakefield/Lackey
And Tampa would be in a similar situation where they have hellickson going tonight and price tomorrow. But Tampa's rotation is so deep I don't think it matters as much for them.
|3 years 43 weeks ago||I don't know why but I just||
I don't know why but I just have a feeling Hoke is going to beat Ohio. I think Nebraska can be very beatable at home but I'll chalk them up as a loss. So I think it comes down to 3 games, @MSU, @Iowa, and @Illinois to determine if we're anywhere from 8-4 to 11-1. I think 9 or 10 wins is a very likely scenario.

Who was the last coach not to wear a baseball cap? Just by google images it appears Oosterban wore a cap but with no block M. I couldn't find any sideline pictures with Crisler but I'm guessing it was him.
Edit: late post
|4 years 9 weeks ago||Not to mention Denard put up||
Not to mention Denard put up some pretty gawdy numbers against the likes of PSU, Illinois, and Wisconsin in addition to the "five nobodies". Also, does Desmond not remember that ND is included in that first 5? ND was a very solid 8-5 squad that blew out Utah and Miami in addition to winning AT SoCal and Denard did nothing short of putting up 502 total yards in South Bend. The man who kicked off his 1991 Heisman campaign with a 4th down diving catch against ND of all people should realize the greatnest of Denards feat.

Not to mention Wiz Khalifa looks like the long lost brother of Manny Harris.

This has Mouton as a Junior (RS). I thought he was a 5th year senior?

Don't forget about James Rogers

I like Cam Gordon at FS and Kovacs at Bandit. Rich Rod did mention Mike Williams in his press conference FWIW. I just hope the true freshman safety competition he was referring to was for the spur position cuz if Mike Williams starts, tight ends will routinely be getting 100+ yards against us.

Turner to linebacker I guess.
|5 years 14 weeks ago||Denard looked best in every||
Denard looked best in every aspect, throwing, running, not fumbling snaps, clean exchanges (or keeps) on the read play. As for Turner, he was running with the 2s and that was with Woolfolk out. I'm just kinda surprised he can't beat out JT Floyd or James Rogers. And as for the fumbled snaps I expect that to improve upon the return of Molk.
|5 years 17 weeks ago||Why slot? I say move him to||
Why slot? I say move him to WR and just have him run flys like against Ohio State. Everyone and their mom's new he was running just straight down the field and they still couldn't cover him.
|5 years 19 weeks ago||I'm not too high on Kansas.||
I'm not too high on Kansas. Keep in mind WE hung in there with them at their place. Also if Kansas ends up playing Kansas State in the final 4, it is really hard to beat a team 4 times in the same season, especially a team as good as K-State. I am pretty high on Kentucky though. Calipari was one miracle shot away from a national title in 2008, and personally I think John Wall is better than Derek Rose.

Would one need Braylon's permission to purchase a #1 jersey?
|5 years 22 weeks ago||Now I've never played or||
Now I've never played or coached football at the D1 college level, but I would wager that paying a Heisman to come play for your team would give a bit more of a competitive advantage than practicing an extra 20 mins to stretch would.

The reason why DD did it is:
Damon + AJax + Scherzer + Schlereth + Coke > Granderson + EJax
|5 years 24 weeks ago||You should include the class||
You should include the class of the first year starters in your data. You predict that 2013 would be a down year if it were Gardner's first year starting. I'm going to go out on a limb a say that a redshirt junior would be much improved from his true freshman year regardless if it's his first year starting or not. Ultimately I think if Gardner redshirts and doesn't start until 2013, it would be a pretty smooth transition.

Dorsey and Latwan at safety, Turner and Christian at corner, MRob at LB, that would be sick.
|5 years 25 weeks ago||It will||
It will be
With Cullen playing nickel. I hope we don't need Mike Williams to even sniff the field and who knows, Vlad might surprise. I also thing M-Rob will be moved to LB to play Stevie Brown's position, possibly even being the starter there next year.

All I can say is that 2006 team had a ridiculous amount of talent.

Unfortunately Kiffin is someone who will probably be able to keep Baxter and Prater.
|5 years 31 weeks ago||Everyone just needs to chill||
Everyone just needs to chill out. We just lost by 11 points on the road against #1 in the land, and that's while shooting 17% from 3. So the facts are, the games will only be easier from here on out and our shooting can only get better from here on out. This game has me very optimistic going into Big Ten play.

How sweet would it be if their shots decide to finally start falling this Saturday.

I want to see the Stafford Calvin connection for years to come. The Lions offense needs it. I'd rather have Calvin and maybe draft Eric Berry for defensive help than have just Suh.

That's actually West Hall, formerly the School of Engineering.
