100% agree. That is my 'most curious' game to watch. It will tell me a lot about OSU - and how we stack up.
|1 week 4 days ago||Michigan gained 5 ponits from||
Michigan gained 5 ponits from last poll, from 1334 votes to 1339. OSU lost 7 votes, going from 1451 to 1444.
MSU is NOT ranked in the top 41 :)
Tennessee lost, but did NOT drop. Miami lost on last second PAT, and dropped 6 spots. That is BS IMO.
I just look at AP, because coaches is obselete and should simply become extinct. Its worthless.

I have noticed that too. I realize he has to somewhat do it to try to come across objective, but man he does overcompensate too much. Herbstriet sometimes does the same, but not to the extent Griese has been doing it.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I will not deny that Dantonio||
I will not deny that Dantonio is a good coach. He is. But he has been extremely fortunate of RR burning bridges with Michigan high school coaches, and Hokes ineptitude to coach. Michigan went from pulling 6/7 of the top 10 kids in Michigan pre-RR/Hoke to pulling 2-4. Dantonio took advantage of this, and landed some top end talent that he normally would not get.
Now fast forward to #Harbaugh - Michigan will now be landing 6/7 (maybe 7/8) of the top guys every year. The writing is on the wall for Dantonio IMO - he just will not be landing the talent he did in-state when we had RR and Hoke.
I would not be shocked at all if he jumped ship and landed at another University.

Isn't this 2 weeks in a row for him?
Also, Shanon Reid has been heavily balled to us.
Brelin Faison-Waldine has had a couple to us.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||He already weighed in||
He already weighed in yesterday and said Mone will not be playing.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||CB recruiting were fine with.||
CB recruiting were fine with. We just landed 2 studs last year, and probably 2 more studs this year (Juste and Thomas). It is the position we are 'most loaded' at with young players IMO, so im not really sure why your worried about that position.
DT position, however, i am definitely genuinely worried about going forward.

|5 weeks 2 days ago||"I think I'll pick State in||
"I think I'll pick State in that one as they seem to play well there."
If that is your reason for picking a team, i hope you do not actually put money down on games. This game has ND kicking the shit out of MSU in every statistical category.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||10 is average per game. Some||
10 is average per game. Some of those NCAA stats are average per game, some are total. I took verbaige exactly as stated on their site. I too am not a fan of them not labeling the stats (per game vs. total).
|5 weeks 4 days ago||I was looking for that - and||
I was looking for that - and it does not show up. I am guessing it is because the punts got through/past the line of scrimmage?
If anyone has the rule on what the criteria is for a blocked punt, i would like to know. Because they did not credit him for either of those.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Same here. I cannot for the||
Same here. I cannot for the life of me speak a well composed sentence/paragraph worth shit. Public speaking is not easy for some. Put me in a corner and give me a few numbers and i can do something.
|6 weeks 14 hours ago||This could mean many things.||
This could mean many things. But it is odd the kid drooled over Harbaugh, yet slammed the shit out of Partridge.
It is definitely something to watch going forward. To be a fly on the wall in Partridge office.
|6 weeks 14 hours ago||One of the 2 you mention||
One of the 2 you mention above, i am not very high on. One is very overrated.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||I disagree with everyones||
I disagree with everyones sentiments in this thread. I believe Ferentz has done a really good job at Iowa. For the recruiting grounds, facilities and prestige Iowa carries, they really could not ask for anything more. And im willing to venture after he leaves/if they got rid of him, they would end up similar to Illinois.
I think he is a pretty damn good coach. Always thought he was a Lloyd Carr clone - still do. He would obviously do better here than what he does at Iowa, given the difference in resources. He is not elite, but is definitely an above average, solid coach.

Who the hell is UMBig11? A kid regurgitating info from various sites? Once more than 1 site post info he takes it as gospel and spreads it like malaria?
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Our safeties are extremely||
Our safeties are extremely athletic and fairly experienced. They were very highly rated recruits and are now seniors.
On some former teams, we would be talking about these safeties being the top (or one of the top) units on the team. Its just that pretty much every unit on the team this year is loaded.
I think 4's for our safeties is definitely a good ranking. This is a damn good unit.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||"Clowney's freshman year saw||
"Clowney's freshman year saw him named second-team All-SEC after racking up 36 tackles, 12 TFLs, and 8 sacks. Joey Bosa, another five-star DE, started ten games, acquiring 44 tackles, 13.5 TFLs, and 7.5 sacks. That's the baseline."
MY BOLD PREDICTION: Gary gets 5+ sacks and 9+ TFL's ....... in the first 3 games. Yes. First 3 OOC games. The only thing that will stop him is if Charlton just happens to get their first a few more times. Gary is more explosive though. I think Gary actually will take some numbers away from Charlton - stopping Charlton from 20+ tfls and 10+ sacks.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||That was pretty much the only||
That was pretty much the only bad info that was supplied. Other than that, fairly believable stuff.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Taco very well could be||
Taco very well could be drafted before any of those on that list.
Besides Gary, im most excited to see Charlton play. This could be the best pair of ends i have ever seen at one time at Michigan.

one does not belong. Step Ben Spanellis?

Yeah, i would also rather have Christian Okoye than Bo Jackson
|8 weeks 13 hours ago||This is not only the very||
This is not only the very first college football game of the entire season, but our first opponent.
If this was, say, the 8th week of college football and we already played Hawaii, i totally agree with you. But it's not.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||One common theme is all the||
One common theme is all the coaches have some really positive things to say about this team. They seem very confident. I cannot recall the exact vibe last year, but i do not remember the coaches being this overly positive when talking about camp and pretty much every player.
I am struggling to find and extract negatives out of their responses. I get a "bryan mone came in sloppy but now is a stud' type thing, or "Rashan Gary doesnt know whats going on but hes learning and coming along well and by year end will be a stud" every now and then, but man all these coaches seem overly optimistic.
Maybe .... Just maybe this team IS as good as i believe they will be.

Have some of you people ever played football or understand it?
Bredeson looked like a high school freshmen there? Good gawd.
In this one clip, i was actually extremely impressed with Bredeson.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||Wish it was in spreadsheet||
Wish it was in spreadsheet format. I would like to subtract each players ranking from 101 - then separate by teams, and add the column up - thus rank the teams by total power. Since Michigan's players are top heavy, i would think they may be #1 in the big ten in quality (IE...a top 5 player on this list would be more beneficial on a team than 3 that are in the 90 - 100 range).
|12 weeks 4 days ago||I do kind of agree here.||
I do kind of agree here. Taking the best LB (mLB) quite possibly mades this Michigan defense one of the best in college football history. This defense is already killer, and taking away the weakness on the entire team and adding in the best player at the position in college football makes this defense one for the ages.
My 2nd pick would be a LT i believe. If mLB is not our weakest position, LT is.
Dalvin Cook and LF are tough to pass up, but replacing a glaring weakness with an NFL stud at either above 2 positions simply helps the team more IMO.
