Florida kid. Now Florida looks good again and Judson decommits from tOSU. I do not think this coincidental.
2017 is a long ways off.

These two predictors are idiots. Michigan will do better than they are believing.
That said, I am most amazed by their take on my Temple Owls who hold quality wins over Penn State (via epic beating) and Cincinnati (at Cincinatti, the same Cincinnati who just beat Miami YTM). Temple runs the table with only a possible loss at home to Notre Dame and with that defense I'm certainly not conceding that...
|1 day 15 hours ago||Well played.||
|1 day 15 hours ago||Who has run on Michigan this year?||
This is Vegas thinking. Michigan's defense is, to this point, as good as any of us have seen since 2006 or 1997. They give up 100 total yards a week to P5 teams (not normal). NW running back is solid but not perceived as better than Hine from BYU, preseason, for example.
Thinking back to Vegas, Michigan gets 3 to 3.5 points as the home team and Vegas then added +9 as margin (thus the +12 line). This will probably get bet down to 8 or 9 by game time but it's difficult to bet against a defense playing that elite.

I'd prefer Chad get off my lawn.

I'm an old school 12 noon man myself.
While I suspect the student opinion might be 8 I'm not sure that would reflect the 80k donors/alumni/season ticket holders etc.
Will be interesting to see how Hackett navigates this thing or if it even matters, really.

To say "this".

It's still OSU always for me also...because regardless of what happens that somewhow always screws up something for Sparty.
That said, you're right, driving to the UP recently I have never seen so many jacked up Sparties with their new S license plates, their Spartan alumni stickers and hats.
Ten years ago there was little of this...of course, they take it badly when I point out that for all their "success" they have won a total of two Rose Bowls since 1989, no MNC and lost to Central in there somewhere.

Michigan 28 - Maryland 3
Michigan 24 - Northwestern 13

Program wrecker, vilified miscreant and generally hated persona non grata among the MGoBlogosphere...the cautionary tale that is David Brandon is not OT
He's a lesson.

This one made me laugh out loud, really.
|1 week 10 hours ago||Upvoted.||
|1 week 11 hours ago||You'd be lambasted for the right reasons||
because MSUck would suck as a comment.
|1 week 11 hours ago||Here's the Problem BJR||
You are apparently the only member of your fanbase willing to acknowledge that. The rest of the sycophants and apologists on the Olentangy don't see 9 cupcakes and Michigan/Michigan State as anything of an issue.
|1 week 11 hours ago||Heh...||
Remember the part about him not being a good coach.
Or their wide receivers coach asking Jedd Fisch if he was "mad bro" and tweeting about his ring collection (that he obviously made happen).
Michigan's receiver development and other player development is novel to them.
|1 week 12 hours ago||Heh...||
As if Harbaugh and Drevno probably aren't on to this potential strategy...
I'm very confident Harbaugh would have something interesting/innovative to deal with those issues. Teams determined to stop Toby Gerhart the same way at Stanford.
Also, who says Michigan doesn't relentlessly wreck on an 8 man box anyway?
3 yards, dust, repeat.
|1 week 1 day ago||Development in Harbaugh's system||
Nobody around here has seen much player development in years (except on defense under G. Mattison, of course)
It seems so novel on offense. Harbaugh will make Rudock better in his system over time.
|1 week 1 day ago||Heh...||
You must be just down my row.
Guy behind me: "Come on Rudock, focus, get your head in the game".
Michigan up 31 - 0...

|1 week 5 days ago||Cool.||
Different AA arrangements this week but I'm making this before the end of the season.
|1 week 6 days ago||Now Now...||
I'd blame the guys at "Chase Winovice Campaign Headquarters" for that oversight.

Reserves judgement on Bowl Game...
|2 weeks 1 day ago||This.||
Our defense will continue to improve and will be wrecking teams by the end of the year (which is good since Ohio State is at the end of the year). Durkin knows what he is doing as does Mattison. Wormley will continue to be a revelation and the secondary will get better.
Harbaugh has a track record of improving teams over the year (it's called developing talent). We haven't seen much of this developing of talent over the last half decade or more so people here are less inclined to acknowledge it's impact going forward. Bottom line, offense will get better.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Upvoted. Preach on good sir.||
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Based on the tenor of the projections||
It's not a 2 point conversion...
Rudock obviously gives up 4 safeties. On each ensuing free kick Michigan recovers for a TD (accounting for 28 special teams points)
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Hmmmmmm....||
A two step open Armara Darboh does not throw the ball to himself.
It's not his problem he's wide open.
Rudock is okay on the short/mid range throw but the timing on the deep ball has not been good this year. That's not on the open receiver though...
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Srsly?||
Debacle seems a bit strong bruh.
Have you watched our quarterback play the last few years?
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Meh.||
I like this whole win the games you are supposed to win with ease thing that Jim Harbaugh has going on.
Anyone who was there for the most recent Akron game, for example, would appreciate that.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||IDK...||
Any play with the center pulling is going to be slower in developing. It looked to me like Isaac waited out his blocks like designed...
