Re Xavier/Marquette, don't we want Marquette to win as we've got a neutral court win over them?
|1 week 4 days ago||It's a farce -- and now||
It's a farce -- and now professional baseball is going to try it in the low minors. Uggh.
|2 weeks 22 hours ago||There are times this team||
There are times this team looks like a sweet sixteen team (or better) and then there are times, too many times, where they don't belong in the NIT let alone the NCAA's.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||I was complaining to a||
I was complaining to a colleague at work about this today. There are six B1G teams in the central time zone. If BTN wants 9 pm tips, schedule the games there. As for ESPN, they've got three time zones from which to find 9 pm tips.

I'll bet on Mississippi State. He's from Mississippi. Ergo he stays in Mississippi.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Does Indiana have any good OL||
Does Indiana have any good OL recruits? If so, any chance they might flip?
|4 weeks 5 days ago||There are a lot of other||
There are a lot of other people I'd prefer to be my third level supervisor at work.
|5 weeks 9 hours ago||If memory serves, he was one||
If memory serves, he was one of the first African-American coaches at Michigan. I believe he was the first African-American coach in any sport at Miami of Ohio.
|5 weeks 11 hours ago||Someone above mentioned AT&T||
Someone above mentioned AT&T in Texas. That actually makes a lot of sense. There are oodles of Texas recruits, yet we seldom seem to win those battles. This might help in that regard. More importantly, spend a week there and it will feel like a home field by the time the game with Florida begins.

By any chance was he CJ Thorpe's recruiter at PSU? They might explain his surprise visit,

Looks like he could help Red B more.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Texas is considering a law||
Texas is considering a law akin to the North Carolina law that's led to boycotts and the moving of games and events out of the state.. If Texas does pass such a law,I wonder if there will be pressure to move the game out of Texas.

Are Bama fans this creepy? Probably not, since in the end the five stars wind up going there and they know it.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||I suspect that Peppers is||
I suspect that Peppers is truly torn, but that his family (in particular, his mother) want him to go pro. After all, it's his Mother who is interviewing the agents and his mother probably told Collins et al that they were her choice.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||I note that all the schools||
I note that all the schools you listed are schools either without a football program or programs where no one cares about football. Every recruit thinking about Michigan has to be aware that in most years, the program is going to play second fiddle to the program next door. If I had my pick of programs, I'd lean to the program where basketball is the big sport on campus.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||I'm expecting Harbaugh to||
I'm expecting Harbaugh to recruit a grad transfer to help at OL, Linebacker, and/or DB. The latter might not be necessary if both Clark and Peppers are back.
|8 weeks 4 hours ago||Sam Chi, the Playoff Guru||
Sam Chi, the Playoff Guru (formerly the BCS Guru) had a tweet recently that explains why ALL the bowl games are important. Most of the seniors in the bowl games will never suit up for an NFL game. Thus, this is their last competitive football game of their lives. Tell them their last game isn't important.

Did I miss it, or has no one mentioned Brian Kelley as a possibility?
|10 weeks 2 days ago||I'm hearing that Fickel wants||
I'm hearing that Fickel wants out of the Cincy deal so he can replace Urban. Although they may be settling for Schiano -- or Miles.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||One of my direct reports is||
One of my direct reports is there today. (Of course, he is a reitred Army colonel). As far as the bucket list, it's cold out today and it usually is for this game.

Speight, O'Korn, Isaacs, Morris can all go pro if they were so inclined.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Looking at MGoBlue, it looks||
Looking at MGoBlue, it looks like they're gearing up to sell tix. I'm guessing there'll be multiple options for getting tix and that doesn't include buying directly from the
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Well, one good thing about||
Well, one good thing about going to the Orange Bowl, my brother-in-law and mother-in-law are moving to Coral Gables tomorrow. I guess that gives me a reason for a visit -- and who's going to complain about whether about 40 degrees better than where I would otherwise be,
|11 weeks 3 days ago||No one will say it, but I'm||
No one will say it, but I'm pretty sure Speight got hurt sometime in the first half. He was doing fine -- and then all of a sudden, he looked like Speight version 2015. Obviously no one was going to say it, but if you look at his ability to throw downfield after the early part of the Iowa game, something was up (or down, as some may put it).
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Clemson's non-conference||
Clemson's non-conference schedule did include Auburn, but it also included Troy, South Carolina State and South Carolina. Better than UW's but nothing to write home about. They also could have easily lost 3-4 games. If I were on the committee, I'd be having a Michigan-OSU rematch and a UW-Alabama game. I suspect that result would match most of the computers' numbers. Sagarin, for example, has it that way.

To be fair the minutes issue against Va Tech was related to Wagner being sick all day.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Earlier this week I made a||
Earlier this week I made a deal with my Virginia Tech friend. I told him we would let Va Tech beat us in basketball, and he would guarantee a blow out of Clemson. He took the deal. We delivered on our part of the bargain, so we can safely assume Clemson is no longer an issue.

When talking Bama offensive coordinators, I seem to recall a guy named Nussmeier. That worked out well.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Nate Silver went to N'western||
Nate Silver went to N'western and based on a conversation I had with him sometime ago, it's clear he's not a fan of the Maize and Blue. Whether that factored into the estimate I'll let others decide.
|12 weeks 1 day ago||Knowing Harbaugh, if he||
Knowing Harbaugh, if he agreed to do it, he'd do it a week before classes began and he'd take the team there for a full week including the obligatory trip to Pearl Harbor and a day at Waikiki surrounding practices.
