there would have to be some to wash away

On the gif'ed play, is Butt actually allowed to block that CB as he runs his route? More informed people cam correct me, but that seems like that should be a flag.
|1 week 3 days ago||You're absolutely right. But I think our receivers||
You're absolutely right. But I think our receivers have the talent to fill that void.... whether Gardner has the trust/patience to consistently look for them might be the defining question for the season however.
|1 week 4 days ago||With so many early entries and players that||
With so many early entries and players that spectacularly over/underperform their rankings, this is like trying to predict the 2018 Super Bowl Winner. Anything where UM shows well though I can get behind.
|1 week 6 days ago||Over the top||
To each his own, but I don't hear that at all. All he said was that true fans would continue to support the team. That's it. I understand being disappointed in last week and questioning the direction of the program... but the outrage over the fan comments seems a little over the top.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||When did Team A win this game?||
The question that this analysis (at least to me) aims to answer, is "When did Team A win this game?"
The only thing that really affects the outcome is the actual plays run on the field. Since spreads, betting lines, polls, a predictive model or anything else that happened previously don't give you bonus points or better field position....they don't mattter as far as an answer to the basic question above.

I think that would subvert the whole exercise. To me at least, this analysis gives the most un-biased look at when Team A 'won' or 'lost' the game with no bias of what anyone thought should have happened. If anything, add a note that states what the spread was, but starting it at 50% rings truer as a reflection of what actually DID happen. Anything else would be adding in an unnecessary bias of someone's prediction.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||2nd receiver||
Gardner throws for 3 TDs and runs for another, we win 28-17. What I really want to see is Gardner go through his progressions and get the non-Funchess receivers involved, this gets really fun if Chesson/Darboh/etc show to be capable of big games.

He is 21, but I'm thinking Morgan slams a Mountain Dew, right before fireworks go off that spell out "DO THE DEW!!" in a maize so bright it blinds the ND offense (we have Oakley sunglasses at the ready)
|2 weeks 4 days ago||28-17||

I'm picturing Morgan coming out on the field to some rock music with the announcers going all Jerry Lawler-like, "Is that.... Desmond Morgan's music?"
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Brady going for the score||
Brady going for the score here is when I decided "I'm alright with this guy as my head coach". Announcers all calling for him to just center the ball for the field goal, but Brady's like, "Nope, This is Michigan, FerGodSakes!"

And Rees just fumbled. Even knowing what's gonna happen (and maybe because of it), watching this game is ridiculously entertaining!
Thanks for posting, or I would have missed it.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Billy Goats bigger cousin||
To be fair, the reveivers were really good at blocking down field last year (especially Jehu) but they never had the chance to do it on running plays, because..(I just decided to never talk abt last year anymore)
|3 weeks 2 hours ago||No tridents please||
Well that escalated quickly.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Real Vs. Potential||
As long as UM stays high in the real rankings, I don't care about recruiting rankings. Yes, winning gets easier with Top10 players... but if Beilein can keep winning with his current seemingly underrated recruits, I don't care if he never gets those Top 20 players.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||+1||
Give this man a cookie! Excellent idea and I like the methodology. I have no desire at all to look at last year, but updates on B1G and national ranks would be great.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Gallon was the No. 1 target||
Gallon was the No. 1 target for a B1G team and broke all sorts of school receiving records last year, he was about as featured as he was goimg to get. I just think the NFL was too focused on the measurables (where he'll never stand out at) to notice his highly effecitive cloaking device.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Moving On||
Seems like he was concentrating on this year, and wasn't trying to say anything (positive or negative) about last year.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Judging from his face, that||
Judging from his face, that must've been a nasty dunk...

Just get Becky "The Icebox" out there, she'll take him down.

Living here for 2 years, I can say Wisconsin loves their Badgers and hate Ohio (they're not too fond of Michigan either, but they really hate OSU).
My guess is that the red is supposed to represent the Buckeyes.

Those aren't capris, it's just that, even off of the court, it is not possible to fully cover Andre Drummond. /Chuck Norris
|11 weeks 3 days ago||In THAT case.||
Maybe I'm underestimating Kevin Love, but I would rather have Klay Thompson, David Lee and draft picks. Lee is virtually a non-shooting Kevin Love, but that's offset by Klay Thompson who happens to be great at bombing 3's. Between Rubio and Barea being shot creators, the players around them only have to worry about finiishing more than ball-handling (covering for both Klay's and GR3's big weaknesses)
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Have always been a fan of||
Have always been a fan of Collison, so Stauskas, Darren and Boogie (DeMarcus Cousins) on the same team just made me a fake Sac. Kings fan.
One thing, it kind of bothers me when teams trade stars (Kevin Love this time) because they could leave in free agaency and the team would "get nothing" for them. Technically true, but a lot of the times the flexibility of the freed cap space is worth way more than the bad contracts, bad attitudes, and/or bad play that The T-Wolves might get if they get too trade despearate.

or maybe Michigan Sweet 16 Muppets after beating South Dakota State and VCU, but we would never....Oh wait, never mind. Blouses!
|13 weeks 1 day ago||The football analogy (to my||
The football analogy (to my un-trained eyes) to Nigeria, would be a team that just threw a hail mary on every play... I have a feeling Bosnia is going to put 1 or 2 more goals in though. too much attacking talent
|13 weeks 1 day ago||Nigeria 1 - 0 Bosnia-Herzegovina||
and Nigeria has an undeserved lead, should be tied now, but Bosnia has still looked the better team so far
|13 weeks 1 day ago||That's the great part, this||
That's the great part, this group is just as talented, we just don't have that one super-recruit that 2012 had (Mitch McGary). We just got used to this level of talent that quickly. Now let's see if they can develop like Burke\Stauskas\Morgan\Levert\everyone (I love Beilein) did.

The fact that he also has a Northwestern and Duke version, makes me like it a little less, still it's kinda cool
|13 weeks 1 day ago||Living up to the Group of||
Living up to the Group of Death moniker.... No doubt that 3 of these teams deserve to move on, and I'm guessing Portugal will show some quality play before long.
