As someone who lives in Maryland, I'm tempted to say the Rutgers job might be better than the Maryland job. At least the Rutgers' fan base cares more about football than Maryland fans do.

I'm pretty sure you would blow a redshirt if you played in a Bowl game. If right, I'm virtually certain you won't see Mone in the bowl game.

Add UVa to the list. London resigned this morning. That effectively mean every major job in the MD/VA area came open this year.
|13 hours 5 min ago||One of the biggest problems||
One of the biggest problems with the Maryland job is no one in the DC areas -- inclduing Maryland alums for the most part -- cares about Maryland football. Maryland football is akin to Indiana football: a nice diversion until the real games begin. I've got a couple of Maryland alums working for me and they've got basketball season tickets, but have trouble remembering who they're playing next in football.
|13 hours 12 min ago||Three of the last five games||
Three of the last five games are at Iowa City (remember they haven't lost all season), East Lansing (one loss) and Columbus (one loss). That's not a recipe for success. I think Michigan can start 7-0 or 6-1 -- Wisconsin as a swing game, but then things get tough, especially if team depth isn't better. As is always the case, there will be injuries. Part of Michigan's late seasond defenisve woes was, of course, the loss of players and a severe dropoff in performance by replacements.

For the record, his Father wasn't Jewish and his Mother while born Jewish was more into ashrams. (I know you were being facetious.

Anyone know why they chose Liev Schreiber to do the narration? No connection to either team or the B1G or even football?

ewwww. Hell, no.
in any event, it will be moot by the time Penn State beats them next Saturday.

@ThePlayoffGuru has been nailing it pretty consistently so far in 2015. He's got it:
Clemson, Alabama, Iowa, ND, MSU, Oklahoma, Baylor, Ohio State, Ok State, Florida.
Personally, I've got a hunch the last two may drop down.

If memory serves, in four years under Hoke, Michigan won five B1G road games and I believe three were in Evanston. If that's correct, then under Harbaugh Michigan has already beaten as many different B1G teams on the road as they did under Hoke.

The Four Seasons is in Wailea -- I just stayed there. (OT: so did Jose Reyes!). I suspect you were thinking of the Ritz Carlton in Kapalua. FWIW, Kapalua is great for golf, but it's a little cloudier and wetter than Wailea or Lahaina/Kaanapali.

I think we want Utah to win for awhile longer. The better they do, the better Michigan's resume is. Of course, at some point, they will need to lose a game, but if it were to happen in the Pac-12 championship that would be better than now.

Three Michigan QBs in the College Football HOF: Benny Friedman, Harry Newman, and Pete Elliott.

I totally agree. Friedman is in the College HOF and would have won at least one and maybe two Heisman's if they were giving them out when he played. Check out: Passing Game - Benny Friedman and the Transformation of Football by Murray Greenberg.

I actually hope to be moving to Hawaii by the middle of 2017. Sounds like perfect timing!

I haven't seen it posted on any of the baseball threads, but Terry Collns is from Midland and played for Eastern.

It's the regular MLB Network broadcast team and they're 100x better than Buck, Reynolds and Verducci. Can someone pull the Fox plug again?

Absolute letdown? As a true freshman, he rushed 118 times for 486 yards. That's 4.1 yards per carry on an awful team. And, he caught 19 passes for 175 yards. The only letdown was he got homesick -- and had some injuries. He was good enough to get a taste of the CFL as a wide receiver.

I like Nebraska over Sparty in Lincoln. If that happens, OSU beats them too, and Michigan runs the table going into The Game, then The winner of The Game would go ton Indy. I don't consider that scenario to be far fetched.

Interesting that you mention Hagerup. I seem to recall a dropped snap against a rival. He was forgiven; O'Neill already has.

I'm in Hawaii. I watched the first half and last 10 minutes in my room. I watched the rest of the game on my iPAD in various locales. When the game ended, I like everyone else on this Blog was in shock, but I had agreed to go to lunch. I sit down at my table and with my wife and a friend commiserating, I look up and directly in my eyesight at the table next to us is a guy in a Sparty T-shirt. It took a lot not to start screaming at him.

With all due respect, I suspect Utah is the better than MSU, so even after next week, Utah will be the best team we've played.

I'm hearing that ESPN has stopped running Draft Kings commercials at least for the time being.
