Harbaugh has been sandbagging the whole time. Running game will feature 2! 100 yard rushers (Smith and Johnson). Rudock will throw for 256 with 2 tds (Johnson & Darboh). Rudock will lose 1 fumble.
We will return 1 kick to the house. Defense will notch 2 interceptions and a fumble recovery on a sack.
Game not that close 35-21.
It's amazing how much these new maize and blue glasses help my eyes.

I think that when the flag is thrown and penalty announced that the penalty should stay. If it is targeting then it could be reviewed for an ejection or not but the penalty should stay regardless of the outcome of the review.
I like the idea of flagrant 1 and flagrant 2 as in basketball. Clear targeting could be a flagrant 2 and ejection while iffy targeting would require 2 before an ejection.
As far as QB slides, it really is a judgement call that should be pretty easy to make. The moment a QB indicates a slide the ball should be placed. If a defender initiates contact after the slide it should be a 15yd penalty.
I don't know what to do about fake slides. Rudock had one on his first long run. He almost slid then saw that it was blocked and kept going.

Some guy in my league dropped A Robinson for Janikowski. Any other questionable moves out there?

Yeah I'M in a 10 man. Starting Robinson, hopkins, Peterson, and Williams. Have Crabtree on the bench. Auction drafts are the best!

It would seem that 40 or 60 would be a better measure of football speed.

Gates. Chicago hasn't faced a good TE yet so the stats may be skewed.

I need a 2nd wr to start. Right now I have E Sanders and Crabtree starting with A Robinson on the bench. Crabtree or robinson? It is a ppr league(0.5 per catch).

I have Luck on my roster and he is going to be riding the bench untill he turns it around or traded. If i were you i would go with Lafell. Adams is healthy so Jones may be #3 in Green Bay, and I just don't trust Gordon.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||That was a thought I had.||
That was a thought I had. Gardner graduated in 3 years. I can't remember if he enrolled early. If so that would probably mean 4-8 credits during the spring and summer terms prior to his freshman year.
If he were set to graduate after this year and then transfer I'd find it odd if he agreed to RS knowing he would transfer after this year. How would Harbaugh take that? He's wasting a scholarship at that point. Maybe Jim is generous enough to allow for it, but given his 5th year try-out policy for certain individuals, I'd find it hard to believe he would do such a thing with Shane.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||If Shane transfers after this||
If Shane transfers after this year (assuming he hasn't graduated) he would have to sit out another year and have one year of eligibily left. He would have essentially wasted a year of eligibility (also assuming any transfer would be to a I-A school).
If he wanted so try to get another year at another school then the plan would be to RS this year, perform next year and then transfer after graduating. This means Morris knows that he will play next year but not be the starter because he's already planning on transferring the year after. If he were the starter next year there is no reason why he'd not want to be back for a fifth year.
My uneducated guess is that Harbaugh evaluated him and sees a high ceiling but with a lot of kinks to work out. Thus he redshirts this year to work out the kinks and can legitimately compete next year. This seems to make sense based on what we've seen from him (physical tools, but poor coaching).
I think that all parties fully expect that Shane will have a legitimate shot at starting next year. If not then he should have transferred prior to this season.

I'm not saying he is good but that there is no way of knowing because he has never been in a good situation at Michigan.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Morris vs Minnesota is||
Morris vs Minnesota is completely different than this situation. Our offense was a complete disaster last year and the coaching was less than competent. Let's call Shane a bust before he has any real chance to compete. The kid should have redshirted but recruiting decisions took that away. He has had 3 coaches in 3 years. Our o line was terrible during his first two years. Kid has not had a fighting chance yet.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||This perspective is||
This perspective is definitely appropriate to the current situation. You win some on bad calls and fluke plays and lose some as well.
That being said, one thing that is just as engrained in fandom beyond suffering through bad losses and reveling in unlikely victories is complaining about the refs!

Did Bill Martin ever drop the interim title? I seem to remember hearing a story of how he was only going to do the job for one year and it ended up being much more than that.

How did Nussmeier feel about the whole situation? It seems like he came into a situation where he did not fully understand the incompetence of the program.

What did Martin do? Sure he "botched" the end of the Carr era, but he hired RR who was one of the hottest coaches at the time. He also hired Beilein. Lastly he turned around the financial state of the AD allowing the building projects to commence.

I moved twice using the 26' Ryder. The power lift gate in the back was huge. I think that's the biggest one you can get without a special license.
I ended up clipping a tree and costing myself $600 because the top is not insured.

I am surrounded by Marquette alumni in Milwaukee and people do buy the gear. Granted it is a much smaller school in a much smaller region, so the product purchases aren't going to extend much past the local area.
