Remember, Meyer had struggles after his first National Championship at Florida in 2006.
Lost 3 games then lost to Michigan in the Capitol One. Tebow won the heisman that year and they still struggled.

I agree this is why it is so hard to repeat in any sport
No hunger, nobody thinks they have to carry the team and they can skate by and let all the heisman candidates do all the work. Everyone has a ring, nothing left to prove.
Back to back MSU UM is gonna be rough.

Can make any team they like look great by playing with the weighting of statistics.
If you heavily weight defense and points against we look like unstoppable gods.
On the offense side, not so much.

It feels like we need to beat NW this week.

I think we are a top 20 team with issues but then I think the rest of the top 20 all have issues.
Lots of parity this year, no dominate teams, anyone can be beat.
OSU and MSU are looking less dominate every week, but PSU, NW and Indiana look somewhat dangerous now.
So 5 of the last 7 are going to be competitive.
Our offense has to have a complete game and not just one good half to win some of these games.
Unlike Maryland, if we give up some picks and fumbles to these other teams they will score.

Well it's 5:30am Sydney time, or 3:30pm here - I think you have the signs of a drinking problem, unless you are on vacation, then it's always 5:00pm somewhere!

It means the Terps are an apparent power and we are an effective power.

So if I walk up to one of these female players or female coach I call them what?
I am pretty sure I would call a group of men's players "Gentlemen" as in:
"Excuse me, Gentlemen, I hope you crush the Terps today!"
so you would also say:
"Excuse me, Ladies, I hope you crush the Terps today!"
You would not say:
"Excuse me, Mr's, I hope you crush the Terps today!"
"Excuse me, mens, I hope you crush the Terps today!"
Most people address groups/crowds as "Ladies and Gentlemen".

It's more to do with lawsuits and insurance than anything.
I am sure the event insurance they take out excludes "natural disasters" or "acts of god". The minute the Mayor or Gov declares state of emergency then anything that happens falls into that category.
Thus, if a tent at a tailgate loads up with rain water, collapses and injures a dozen people then the insurance will not cover it.

Urban called Coach Harbaugh disingenuous.
I heard it somewhere.

Seriously humans are obsessed with ranking everything.
Everyday rankings like this are released on everything, colleges, best/worst places to live, best/worst places to work, best/worst careers, best films, songs, etc.
On the various sports websites there are probably 50 football rankings and "power" rankings every week.

Glad we won the rest of our games this year.

Exactly, sometime tomorrow will be state of emergency for many cities and states up and down the coast. Then they start shutting public transporation down after Friday night. Unless this thing changes course abruptly, nobody's flying out of DC Sunday. I am sure they are freaked out about that. Moving to noon is only option.

I wish last year's Utah game was, but then again this was the first step down the path to Harbaugh.
|5 days 10 hours ago||It not really where the storm||
It not really where the storm ends up, but what the authorities do.
They closed the DC and other airports 36 hours before Sandy arrival and shut down the governement services - the business for the most part closed too, although in the end there was minimal impact on DC from the actual storm.
This means nobody could be flying out of the east coast Sunday-Tuesday.
If you are flying in to the game, prepare for being stranded 2-3 extra days. Extra hotel $, clothes, etc.
